Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, September 25, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-23 Beer commercials irk health minister OTTAWA (CP) Imagine being confronted by a televi- sion beer commercial showing a sick drunk in a dirty dark alley behind a tavern Not quite what Health Minister Marc Lalonde has in mind when he talks about making beer ads show "real people in real-life situations." but he definitely wants to get away from the premise that beer drinking is a vita! pat I of an acuve social We. He has made this clear in a speech to the Brewery Associ- ation of Canada and elaborated on it in an inter- view Tuesday. "It's the type of excessive pushing of beer drinking that is going on at the present time, that the only way to have an enjoyable time is to drink, and to drink beer in par- ticular." The type of advertising prevalent on TV today usually shows a group of what Mr. Lalonde calls "lean young people enjoying themselves" on a luxury yacht or in a sparkling swimming pool behind a sumptuous house. It not only annoys the health minister. It annoys the Cana- dian Radio-Television Com- mission which lays down broadcast advertising regulations, and the 100-year- old Women's Christian Temperance Union At least one province, On- tario, intends to crack down on liquor and beer advertising and Mr. Lalonde says that the CRTC has been holding talks with the nine other provinces for some time. A spokesman for the Brewery Association said But CRTC lawyer Michel Lalande said this is not exact- ly accurate. "We just see the script and tiiu story he said, the latter being a tightly condens- ed version of the ad itself Mr. Lalande said the story board shows certain areas of the ad, but that the commis- sion does not see the final ver- Mon because H might have to re-joc' a f.'m. thai lias HJM many thousands oi dollars "We have to have con- fidence in the advertising agency, that they will respect the content of the story boards Mary Graham of Toronto, president of the 100-year-old WCTU, said in a telephone in- terview that the union has ap- proved a resolution dealing with TV beer ads at its convention in Ottawa a week ago. She said the resolution probably will be forwarded to Health Minister Lalonde Mis Graham agreed with Mr. Lalonde's stand that the advertising in its present form places "too much emphasis on the good side of it." What advertising did not re- veal was the statistics on alco- holism and its attendant social and financial Mr. Lalonde said the Le Dam commission on the non- medical use of drugs, which submitted its final report to the government early this year, has spelled out "quite clearly" the alcoholism situation "Alcoholism is, in absolute terms, a much more serious problem than drug addiction in this country." he said "It is very important tru we take steps to make people very conscious of the im- plications of excessive use dituhul This is one vva> that we tan attack this par ticular problem He was asked what kind beer advertising would satisf; him "It's not a question of pleas ing me IK- rephc.-d It's question oi responsible adver Using "I think the industry will bf discussing this with the liqu -Theprice of a loaf of bread could be re- duced two cents if all bakers refused to buy old bread back from retailers, but bakery spokesmen agreed Tuesday it was a risky business Peter Wygant, president of General Bakeries Ltd.. said in an interview that his company had stopped buying back old bread from its retailers 19 months ago, adding. "All grocers, large and small, would rather that Oie baker pick up the bread. If one baker does take back all stales then the tendency is for the store to do business with that baker We took some real gambles when we did this." Still, he said, the move crealed an additional profit of aboul two per cent for the company by not having to have trucks picking up the bread and then having to find a buyer for it at a thrift store or as pig feed. "The meat packers don't take back oJd meat, produce suppliers don't take back un- sold vegetables." Mr. Wygant said. What the company now does is grant the stores a five per cent credit for bread over three days old and let the store sell it as it can. The move is in line with a suggestion from the federal food prices review board last February. So far only General Bakeries has made the move Both Victor Usaki. ex- ecwttve vice-president of Wesjon Bakeries Ltd in Toronto and Jean Piggott. president of Morrison Lamolhe Foods Ltd., here agree that the general move was the right one.
