Your assurance of quality Science authority needs more power By JEM- CARRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The Science Council of Canada, the government's public science advisor based in Ottawa, should remain in existence only if the federal science ministry gives up its com- peting role as the federal government's private science advisory, the Lamontagne Special Senate Science Policy Committee recommends in its final report released today. Even if it continues to exist, the Science Council needs to be changed radically, the Lamontagne Committee says. But if the science ministry continues in its present role as federal science advisor, the Science Council should be abolished. The continued existence of two science advisors would likely give rise to "conflicts and frustrations, particularly You get more with a Kenmore We service what we sell, coast-to-coast.

Telephone 328-9231 since the ministry has begun to develop links with private organizations representing the scientific community and to seek their the committee says. "The government does not need two frustrated advisory bodies." Just as important, the Science Council's budget could be better used by the science ministry to strengthen the organization of the Cana- dian scientific community, "which greatly needs and to commission from "these stronger private scientific in- stitutions the special studies it needs to advise the govern- ment." On the other hand, "if the ministry is made responsible not only for policy but also for reviewing the science budget, only then, we feel- there will be a need for an im- partial outside critic of the whole decision-making proce- the Lamontagne Com- mittee says. CHANGES PROPOSED Under these circumstances, the following changes should be made to the Science Coun- cil: should look at areas of expenditures, to see if the gov- ernment is taking the proper course in science spending. should report to Parlia- ment through the chairman of the proposed interministerial committee for science and technology. should no longer have as members or associate members federal public of- ficials, who are at present put in the position of having to criticize government policy in public. Beef price drop is expected TORONTO (CP) Beet prices will drop two to three cents a pound in stores here by next week, producers and retailers said today. Resumption of beef shipments from the Prairies after the rail strike, coupled with a drop in United States beef prices after the removal of the price freeze, is causing the drop, they said. Donald Slinger of United Co- operatives of Ontario said packers have turned to U.S. markets where steers were bought for a hundredweight compared with on the Toronto market. Transportation adds a hun- dredweight. He said Ontario-produced beef ready for market was sold out as farmers sold for high August prices to serve Montreal markets normally supplied by the Prairies dur- ing the rail strike. Meanwhile, in the U.S. an oversupply has been caused by farmers holding back beef un- til the price freeze was lifted. Don Robins, Calgary market researcher for the Canadian Cattlemen's Association (CCA) said beef prices have fallen sharply on the futures market in Chicago, and this is a good indication of drops in retail prices to come. Charles Gracey, manager of the CCA in Toronto, also blamed full home freezers for the price drop. Consumers "hoarded beef when they shouldn't have and it's blunting demand now." The price of pork in Toronto was a hundredweight Tuesday, near July levels, after a" rise to during the August shortage. should have a full-time chairman and vice-chairman, one from the physical sciences, the life sciences or engineering, the other from the social sciences and humanities. should be broadened to cover the social sciences and the humanities and should be renamed the Science and Engineering Council of Canada. It should have 30 members, instead of the pre- sent 25, and the members should be elected after con- sultation with organizations in the scientific community. Half the members should be from the academic com- munity, the other half from the private sector. The mem- bers should also be representative of the broad scientific disciplines and regions of the country. should maintain a close liaison with representative or- ganizations of the Canadian scientific and engineering community, to get their views on the orientation and development of science policy. Finally, there should be no change in the Science Council until the government has de- cided what to do about the proposed new role for the science ministry and the proposed new interministerial committee on science and technology.
