Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Basford answers critics of competition measure QUEBEC (CP) Consumer Affairs Minister Ron Basforei rejected today business criti- cism lhat (he new federal com- petition bill is a "radical depar- ture" from policy proposed by Die Economic Council of Canada in a report. Mr. Basford told the annual Canadian Chamber of Com- merce meeting the bill, now be fore Parliament, "flows d rectly" from two main rccom mendations in the 1969 report: the law on restrictivi agreements such as price-fixinL Dr bid-rigging, price mainte nance and misleading advertis ing be clarified, vigorously en forced, subjected to substantia grain movement needed Hegina (CP) An "all-out" movement of grain will be needed during the next three months if Canada is to meet current sales commitments, A. M. R u n c i m a n of Winnipeg, chairman of the Canada Grains Council, says. Grain shipments for the 1971- 72 crop year are off to a gocd start and may equal last year's record movements, Mr. Runci- man told a news conference. "We will need a grain move- ment, to at least the end of nav- igation on the Great Lakes, that will be beyond anything ever achieved or projected in the past." A similar heavy movement was required to the West Coast to meet commitments through Loblaw firms create real estate branch TORONTO (CP) Loblaw Companies says it has made a S27 million acquisition as part of a program aimed at creating a separate real estate corporation in the LoWaw group. The acquisition is Glenhuron Properties Ltd., a company with a leasehold interest in a large number of Loblaw Grocertcrias' stores. THE JOB YOU WANT The hardest job in the world is JooHng for a job.

Vancouver, and heavy traffic could continue well into 1972 as a result of sales commitments already made. Mr. Runciman, who is also president of United Grain Grow- ers LU., said a sign of the DOS siblc heavy grain shipments was the recent announcemen by the Canadian wheat board 01 a "B" quota for barley. The quota provides for delivery by farmers of five bushels of bar- ley an acre in addition to the in- itial quota of three bushels ar acre. FARMERS NEED CASH Donald A. Dever, the council's secretary-general, said esti- mates are that Canada will ex- port 175 million bushels of bar- ley this year, with another 350 million bushels going into do- mestic markets. This would re- sult in a carryover of about 300 million bushels. Mr. Runciman, attending the council's semi-annual meeting, said farmers should not be "led down the alley of selling barley at firesale prices" because of exceptionally high yields and large stocks on farms this year. He said he realizes the pres- sure faced by some farmers to get cash but there are two ave- nues open to them which would be better than selling their grain at sharply reduced prices. One was to take a cash advance against grain on hand. The other was the actual market op- portunities available at local el- evators. Mr. Runciman said there is space in country elevators and delivery opportunities are far ahead of anything seen for many years at this time of year. Deliveries of all grains to country elevators during the first two months of the crop year were probably about 50 per cent higher than for the same period a year ago. The council is holding its first general meeting outside Winni- peg since it was formed three years ago. penalties, and kept in the crimi- nal law. other criminal offences in the existing Combines Inves- tigation Act, which the competi- tion bill would replace, be dealt with through a competitive- practices tribunal which would decide on the basis of economic analysis whether mergers and other business practices were healthy. He said the tribunal isn't "a sanctioning body that, you will have to run to for approval at every turn." It could only make decisions after another party had requested an examination. The tribunal wouldn't have an approval role in mergers. Merg- ers would have to register with the tribunal but unless they were challenged, they wouldn't be a subject to examination and test. EXAMINE VERY FEW "Only a very small percen- tage of mergers would be exam- ined." Mr. Basford also said he be- lieves the bill contains the 'most workable and effective' means of dealing with harmful price discrimination. Critics who said the hill's provisions would preclude price advantages resulting from longer production runs had ov- ersimplified the problem. The cost of producing a unit de- pended on the volume going through the plant, not on the size of the order. "Savings from large orders arise elsewhere." Mi1. Basford promised plenty of time for businessmen to sug- gest improvements to the bill, jut he said government is firmly committed to the princi- ple. He hoped to begin reviewing RON BASFORD Hits Back Scientists set to roam Canada OTTAWA (CP) More than scientists from 115 coun- tries will roam Canada next summer, pausing Aug. 21-30 for the international geological con- gress. It. will be the largest scientific meeting ever held in Canada. More than 800 scientific papers, ranging from earth resources satellites to geology's effects on wine making, will be read at meetings in Montreal. Before and after the formal sessions, the scientists will make field trips from the Atlan- tic to the Pacific and into the high Arctic. To mark the event, 1972 is ex- pected to be proclaimed Earth Sciences Year by Governor- General Roland Michener who is patron of the congress. The congress, expected to cost >roposals for improvement in November, with amendments loving from constructive suggestions when the new ses- sion of Parliament, expected m January, began. The new policy was built round competition as the best means to achieve "our national objective of economic efficiency in a dynamic and growing econ- 3my." Government, like the Cco- nomic Council, didn't believe hat direct government control, detailed government regulation, or self-regulation by large in- lustrial uniLs would work.

Dr. Peler Coehn, a Calgary general practitioner, urged more than ifl million, is a co-op- erative effort of the federal and provincial governments, indus- try and the universities. TOPICS VARY WIDELY While minerals and their de- velopment will play a big part in deliberations, scientific pa- pers also will deal with environ- mental problems, continental drift, underseas mineral depos- its, urban engineering, planet geology and education. Italian scientists have come up with a paper on the effects of rock formations on the soil and the consequences for wine mak- ing. For the or more scien- tists, wives and chil- dren expected in Montreal, the major hotels have been taken over as living quarters. Hotel Bonaventure will be congress headquarters. In addition, 55 world organiza- tions dealing with the earth sci- ence will meet during the week-long conpress. The federal energy, mines and resources department and the Quebec mines and resources department are making most of the arrangements. Dr. R. E.

Need more concern for safety CALGARY (CP) It's time trade unionists showed more concern in matters of health and safety, Donald Macdonald, president of the Canadian La- bor Congress, said here. "It is pointless for us (o ex- pend our energies in improving our conditions at work if we are to have all our progress wiped out by the hazards that lurk elsewhere." Addressing the organization's seventh biennial conference on health and safety, Mr. Macdon- ald said organized labor has just as big a stake in safety and health as it docs on the job. "For this reason, the con- gress encourages its federa- tions, labor councils and affi- liated unions to continue and to step up their active participa- tion in provincial and commu- nity safety councils." He reiterated slat e m e n t s made earlier in the conference by Joe Morris, CLC executive vice-president, who urged co- operation between labor, man- agement and government to help prevent accidents. The president also urged workers lo take a greater m- (cifst in safety away from their jobs. While there has been n slight downward trend in the falality column, lie said, the disabling injury figures are on the in- crease. i "There were more temporary disnbililics and more permanent disabilities in 1070 compared will] 1969. ineroflscd vigilance nnd a greater educational effort among our people is unmistak- ably ncccssnry if accident prc- venlion programs are to suc- ceed."
