Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, Scplcmbcr 28, THE IETHBRIDGE HERAiri _ Might Or Might Nol PayoIT Politically Tories Taking Risk On Outcome Of Government's Farm Marketing Bill By DAN TURNER OTTAWA (CP) The federal Conservative parly, tradition- ally strong in rural areas, ap- pears to be taking a calculated risk on the government's na- tional farm products marketing bill that could pay off politically or leave it with egg on its face. Bill C-197 would establish a national farm products market- ing council and set up national farm marketing agencies for various commodities where the provinces agreed to participate or delegate their powers. The Conservatives dug in their heels before the bill re- ceived second reading in the Commons last June, fighting it mainly with the accusation thai it does not guarantee farmer representation on either the council or the agencies which it would establish. However, the Conservatives allowed the bill to go through second reading and on to com- mittee where the fight was to continue. So members were recalled this week to deal with C-197 on new grounds of urgency. In the committee's opening session Tuesday, Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson urged ap- proval in time for speedy Com- mons passage this session. The Complaints By Protestors Trudeau Backs Reporters TROIS-RIVIERES1, Que. (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau said here that people who demon- strate in public have no right to complain if their names and pictures appear in newspapers. The prime minister had been questioned at the annual meet- ing of 1'Association des Hebdos du association of French-language weekly news- papers of jour- nalists being asked to testify in court. Reporters' notes on demon- strations and protestors were also being subpeoned, the pub- lishers said. Mr. Trudeau replied that vio- lent demonstrations "are a so- Technology Gap Basis For Protest By Young People MONTREAL (CP) J. Emile Maheu, retiring president of the Canadian. Institute of Chartered Accountants, said today a technology gap is the basis of protests by young peo- ple and urged the business com- munity to consider the view of youth. In his farewell address to the group's annual conference, Mr. Maheu said a technology gap "has opened up between man's technical abilities and his com- prehension of the full effect of what he is doing" and may be one of the causes of "the so- called generation gap." "The younger generation today looks at a world in which the gap between the haves and the have-nots seems to be wid- ening rather than narrowing, a world in which clean air and pure water seem to be sacri- ficed on the altar of more in- dustrial produciton."

Phone 327-1056 Not all young protesters make a positive contribution to soci- ety, he said, "but I do think most of them have a great deal of honesty and integrity and that we should respect them for this." Mr. Maheu said chartered ac- countants bear responsibility in closing the technology gap, both as private citizens and profes- sionals. "Accountants trained in the measurement and communica- tion of economic data certainly have special abilities and knowl- edge to contribute to the solu- tion of community and national problems." However, if the role of ac- countants in society broadens, Mr. Maheu told delegates, the profession will be faced with "hard decisions and quite diffi- cult ethnical problems." If accountants become part of "the top general management they will be more in- volved in decision making and have to resolve how to use their skills. "To whom do we owe primary loyalty; a client or employer who may use the information for private gain, the govern- ment of the day, or the general Mr. Maheu said accountants should be among community leaders and that the major chal- lenge they face, is preparing their profession for more active participation "in the national and community dialogue."

"I don't know why they (dem- onstrators) would complain if their pictures are taken and if journalists are called into court to present them as evidence." Obviously they were not hid- den during the protest. The prime minister added that it seems demonstrators "have the right to hit the police, but the police don't have the right to hit them back." DEMONSTRATED ONCE Mr. Trudeau said he person- ally demonstrated against con- scription during the Second World War "but I knew that if I rioted in the streets I ran the risk of getting a boot on the tail from the police." Discussing the 1968 St. Jean Baptiste Day parade in Mont- real when a violent demonstra- tion was staged in front of the reviewing stand where he was sitting, Mr. Trudeau said: "If you (demonstrators) have the courage to do that, you should have the courage to take it if the police rough you up a bit." Mr. Trudeau said secrecy was well known in certain profes- sions such as the priesthood, medicine and law. It also ex- isted in federal tax offices. He said he understands pro- fessional secrecy when it con- cerns protection of the individ- ual but added he "understands it less" when it involves people who break the law during dem- onstrations. Mr. Trudeau said that for court purposes, notes taken dur- ing a demonstration must be considered to be different than those taken during private, per- sonal interviews where sources were He admitted he had not thought much about the legal implications of calling on jour- nalists to testify. session is to end soon after members resume sitting on Oct. 5, if government plans pan out. Mr. Olson's pica was based on the chicken-and egg war that has sprung up between several provinces, and the danger of il spreading to other commodities. The chicken-and-egg war, es- sentially a defensive conflict, started last spring when Quebec grew frustrated trying to con- vince Ontario egg producers that they should restrict their exports to Quebec's high-price market, and turned to regula- tions to protect Quebec's ex- panding producers. 'be Quebec egg market sud- denly became less attractive. Ontario producers would call to have shipments approved and receive no answer, or would find their perishable product waiting in the hot sun while being cleared through red tape. For the first time it became evident that provinces may be able U) restrict imports of agri- cultural commodities from other provinces indirectly by having their marketing board controlling sales of the commod- ity. No province could accom- plish this feat directly, by limit- ng imports, because inter-pro- vinciai trade is a federal juris- diction. Within the last few months other provinces have been retal- iating against a Quebec surplus of broiler chickens that was glutting their markets. Ontario, British Columbia and Nova Scotia now require outside producers to hold a marketing permit before they can sell chickens to retailers. Saskatche- wan has similar machinery ready to put into effect. As a result of this jockeying, Ontario and Manitoba egg prod- ucers are facing hard times ivith the loss of the Quebec mar- ket. Other farmers now are be- coming wary that inter-provin- cial restrictions might shift to their field and leave them with a surplus. This is where bill C-169 comes in. Although cattlemen have succeeded in opting out of the bill and many farmers' associa- tions criticize the absence of guaranteed producer represen- tation on the proposed agencies. many are generally m favor of the measure. The chicken and egg produ- cers are frantically in favor of it. They have been pushing it for a year and the bill was writ- ten because of egg producers' Boyle's Column By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) Tilings a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: Why our air is polluted: Every car on the road each' year pours out of its exhaust between one quarter and one half ton of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons.

Suite 21000, Place de Ville Ottawa i, Ontario requests for a national egg mar- keting board. A communique issued at the end of last week's federal pro- v i n c i a 1 conference said the prime minister and the pre- miers were unanimous that the bill "should be expedited." To the government, the bill is the vehicle through which the provinces, if they want to co-op- erate, could build a plan to end the war. But to the Conservatives, the measure has the potential to do exactly the opposite of harmo- nizing inter-provincial trade. Harold Danforth (Kent-Essex) and Jack Horner (Crowfoot) both said this week that the bill could balkanize Canadian trade by prompting provinces, which now depend on other provinces for particular agricultural com- modities, to become self-suffi- cient Their reasoning: The act would allow provinces to opt out of commodity agencies if they did not agree with the agency's plan. If a for pic, it was limited by quotas under a national market- ing formula it might decide not to join the national egg agency and become self-sufficient in this commodity. If enough provinces tcok this approach, the argument goes, all (he efficient egg-producing provinces now over-producing for their own needs would have to cut hack. Production nation- ally would then become isolated and 'jiefficient. The difference seems to be that the government thinks the provinces will co-operate, while Mr.- Homer and Mr. Danforth, at least, aren't so sure. Mr. Homer said at a news conference Thursday he would fight the bill to the end. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg.

This has certainly lowered prices, but the results are often not to the high standard set by the craftsman who takes pride in producing a perfect article. However, for the manufacturer, craftsmanship and perfection are expensive. Thank heaven for the owners of Mercedes-Benz automobiles. Our recent survey shows this breed of man is intol- erant of imperfsciion. He buys a watch with the expec- tation that it will remain accurate, month after month.

Cabinetmakers carve and fit the wood trim. Former dressmakers sew the upholstery. And inspectors are willing to lower a day's output by re- jecting a car that is less than perfect.

The same kind of satisfaction that he gains from his own busi- ness. Perhaps diagnosing a rare disease, submitting a clear research report, or untangling the complica- tions of corporate law.
