'A VISITOR  Mrs. J.M. Little of MacKen-  zie Island, Ont., was a sriipfise  visitor'at the Bob Little 5Home  for the Christmas holidays. 2    Coast News,  Jan. 2,  1958.  Letters to the editor  If there is a New Year message people on this, continent  should read, and inwardly digest it should be the statement by  Nobel prize-winner Harold Urey, that "brain-power, not horsepower holds the key to survival'against powers admittedly out  to destroy us." "  Mr. Urey also said today's jloers are the ones with knowledge who understand the meaning of what is taking place and  are aware of what must be done. They are outnumbered by those  whose prime concern is the maximum consumption of manufactured goods." .  In that remark there is a glimmer of hope. If, for example  the brain-power whose prime concern is maximum consumption  of manufactured goods, ever dropped what it -was doing and concentrated on other phases of life besides cosmetics,' cigarettes,  automobiles and other quasi-luxuries the picture could change  considerably. This should not be taken to mean/quasi-lux'uries  should be. wiped out. Such is not intended but if the emphasis  placed on them.was channelled into othertsterner fields the democratic New World could quite possibly be giving the other side  of the world more, to .worry about than it now has. 'it-is a thought  anyway and should be faced before we reach the period when  it will be later than we think. ,  Highway rights or rites  Pedestrians who demand their "rights" as they walk  across or through traffic, seldom realize that too many things  can happen to prevent motorists from stopping in'time. Some  vehicles have faulty brakes, faulty drivers or both.  It's against the law for a motorist to strike a pedestrian  but that is no consolation to a pedestrian who has been hit by  a car. The surest way to avoid it, the Canadian Highway Safety  Conference advises is for pedestrians to walk safely, and make a  habit of it-  Bicycles are predominantly vehicles of youth, the Canadian  Highway Safety Conference finds. Motorists who encounter these  unpredictable, flitting two-wheelers must always be on their  ���guard. % !  ��� Parents of youngsters who' own bicycles have a responsibility: to instill in their offspring the fact no motorist wants to  run down a cyclist, and to instill the responsbility required in  the operator of a bike.  Motorists are often angered at the, surly attitudes of bicycling children. The appearance of a bicycle on; a street, usually  sudden and unexpected, is enough to make any driver tense.  Aware of the potential danger and the inevitable' uncertainty of  the cyclists intentions, motorists will sound their horns, to let-  the young menaces know that traffic is near. So often the bicyclist will take, offence, snarl a nasty word or. two at the driver  as though the motorist had no right to even exist, least of all to  toot a warning. ."Don't be stupid," a cyclist says, "you tend to  your driving arid I'll tend to mine."  The sooner a cyclist comes to realize that he is, driving  a vehicle, a light, frail one. at that, the greater the chance he  stands of existence-in this world of fast-growing traffic.  ^^"Ua  Who was Maionabee?  Matonabee was a Chipewyan  Indian leader who was made  head of the whole Northern Indian nation in 1772 and became  the most influential Indian of  his time. He was born near  Prince of Wales's Fort, on Hud-  ' son Bay, the son of a Northern  Indian; and a slave woman. He  was adopted by "the governor  of the Fort when his father  died. After the governor returned to England, the boy  went back to his people but in  1752 he entered the service of  the Hudson's Bay Co. as a hunter. :'  Tall,' strong, endowed with  admirable moral qualities and  excellent manners, he was entrusted with a dangerous diplomatic mission to the Cree Indians and he succeeded in establishing peaceful trade relations between them and their  hereditary enemies, the 'Chip-  ewyans. After making a preliminary scouting trip to the  Coppermine River, he acted as  principal guide to Samuel  Hearne in 1770-72, on his historic trip to the Coppermine.  While he was head of the  Northern. Indian nation a record number'.... of furs were  brought to the fort.

May I  trespass upon your space with  a few year end thought??  Thinking of Christmas and uts  varied^ connotations, today we  find much of the impressive?  ness of that happy season con-!  siderably undermined , by  weeks of ballyhoo in the stores  press, TV and radio. Santa-  Clauses everywhere, youngsters given to understand what  iSanta    brought,    not    bought  them,-  We hear "Get HER that gift'  Nothing down and very little  a week, start paying well on  in    January."   A   storekeeper  grubstaking a customer under  adverse circumstances is understandable, but this continuous  urging our young folk ���.mar  red and single ���-'to hamstring  themselves  to a  debt saddled  state is inexcusable. Self reliance is undermined and a most  pernicious habit promoted.  . \  One   could   probably' place  the   treatment  of our   youngsters at Christmas time as the.  culmination of a year's folly.  All' year we  seem? content to  pamper them., The government  allowance becomes all too frequently their  spending allowance.   We  give   them  slightly  more than half a year's school?  ing   in   the   year,   conveying  them there" carefully  by bust,  then building gyms in an endeavour  to coax  them  to exercise  and   take  off some   of  the bus riding stiffness. Auto*  mation has eliminated many of  the   erstv/hile   very necessary  chores and the few that remain  are   graciously   left  for   Mom  and   Dad   oftentimes   through  their own choosing. H-  One wonders what- bearing  such training or lack of it has  on starting the young on.the  wide open road toward delinquency; When adverse conditions confront the young, lacking resoluteness by perpetual  pampering, the seemingly^ easy  way to get by 'may-have a mbre'  inducing pull.. ��� /:-?!  We don't want ariy more of  the' so-called -gbod old day's  with women folk at the scrubbing board in their canvas aprons, ��ut one wonders whether  evolving? to the cocktail dress-  es is really so worth while.  The machine? Yes, by all  , means, but apeing the upper  ctust and their stooges in their  cocktail parties is questionable  progress.  Harking back again to Yule-  tide. In spite of everything we  must. see that the poor get a ���  good Christmas , dinner. The  3 64 days in between is seemingly, uriiriiportarit, arid lastly  the most important of all- Peace  on earth; goodwill to men.

The readers ���  if any -r-*- and the writer must  play their part. Over the years  conditions in many parts have  greatly improved. Look in the  mirror and/ask the fellow you  see there what part if any he  has played in bettering world  conditions, and if not why not?  Together with scientific ,ad-  vancement the well being of  the world can be improved  providing that fellow in the  mirror plays his ;part.  Existing organizatiPns have  done wonderful work, including our craft unions and indus  trial organizations, but the apathy of the average Joe has  brought us to the point where  we've bred Beck's, Brewsters  and Hoffa's. The card carrying  member who absents himself  from his union meetings, ^letting well alone-until such time  as things go haywire, then oftentimes criticize over a few  quick beers or on the street can  not be absolved from some  share in producing these conditions.  I'm not going to suggest a  bunch of meaningless New  Year's resolutions .other than  mention the fact that it's high  time we carried the ball occasionally rather than cheering the other fellow from the  Sidelines qr grandstand, npiti  giving any thought at all to  playing in the game ourselves.  The slogan "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty"  is as true today as when it was  first uttered. So let's start the  Centennial year right.  Dave Rees.

Here is what the minister said,  as reported in Hansard:  Hon; J.A., MacLean. (Minister of Fisheries): On Friday  last, November 29\the hon.  -member J.or New Westminster  asked if I had received a letter  from thei United Fishermen  and Allied Workers' union concerning the importation of Japanese canned salmon. I replied  at that time that I# had, but,to  Clarify the, situation I think I  should add to the brief answer  I ga-Ve at that time.  The 195fr and 1957 salmon  . catches in British. Columbia  failed to produce sufficient  supplies of certain species of  salmon to fill the requirements,  of the" Canadian market. /The  Canadian consuniptioii of canned sockeye salmon has. been  ruiining in the vicinity of  300,000 cases annually. In the  sockeye season just ended- only  about 225,000 cases were packed, as compared with the average of 440,000 cases for the  preceding five years.  The small catches in 1956  and 1957 were due principally  to the failure of the runs of  salmon to a number of the major produping areas, particularly in the north. Pridr to  the 1956 sa:imon fishing season  in British Columbia it was  known that one of the major  river systems would not be a  large producer. Hence in the  fall of 1955 it was anticipated  that there would be a shortage  oi canned Canadian salmon  from the 1956 season. -,  In "anticipation of the short  packs of sockeye and pink salmon in 1956 and the short pack  in 1957 of sockeye, the industry considered that it was most  desirable to share the available Canadian canned salmon  pack with buyers in the United  Kingdom, which ��� market has  been a traditional one for Canadian canned salmon and is an  important one to retain. ,The  maintenance of;. the British  market for Canadian canned  salmon is important -for both  the fishermen and the operating companies of British Columbia.  Because of this situation it  was necessary for the processing companies to supplement  the stocks of canned salmon  for the Canadian market by  importing some species of can-  ned salmon from Japan; This  has resulted in the appearance  of: Japanese canned salmon in  v Canadian food stores, and has  no doubt puzzled some consumers who have always- looked  Here's hoping you'll  wake up to o ���"��� ���  '        NEW YURI  fronl SHEILA and BOB  LITTLE ELECTRICAL   CONTRACTOR  Ph.

When   it? was  forseen   that  there would be a short supply  of Canadian canned salmon in  the 1956 pack year, processing  companies consulted vvith and  advised the United Fishermen  and Allied Workers'. union of  their . intention   to   bring   in  some supplies?.-of..the. canned  product from Japan. The union  at that time cfhcurred in;.._ the...  proposal of the companies. Approximately  ,165,000' cases  of  sockeye salmon were imported  from Japan in 1956, and in the  same year about '������40,000 cases  of   pinks   and    approximately  40,000 cases of eohoe. -The figures I have quoted are for full  cases of 48 pounds.   .  In view of the small Canadian pack of sockeye salmon  in .1957 it is undgrstoon the  processing companies expect  to import fro'm Japan, mit only  sufficient quantities of canned  sockeye salmon which will  meet the requirements'��� of the  domestic market until the new  Canadian pack of 1958 is available. The canned salmon industry of British Columbia is confident* that the current shortage of sockeye salmon is only  temporary, and that/ in 19��8  ample supplies of Canadian  production  will  be  available/  In. the meantime, /however,  it is felt to be important that  the market demand for sockeye salmon be satisfied, and  that the competitive position of  sockeye salmon with other  foods be protected. I consider  it fortunate that this supply  shortage of canned salmon can  be filled from Japan, an im-/  portant buyer of such Canadian products as wheat, pulp,  iron ore and other raw materials.; It ,is fortunate too that"  the temporary shortage of Can-  adian canned salmon is chiefly  confined to the apcfceye species.  The industry feels that sufficient^supjplies/of Canadian pro-  duced conoe.'.'-pink's'anH*''efiun����  will be available to the Canadian consumer. .   ^   ���  It is important to emphasize  that all; canned salmon, entering Canada must?be inspected  for quality and hiffh standard  under the regulations for the  inspection of canned salmon of  the Canadian Meat and Canned Foods Act. The samVrigid  inspection is given to imported  canned salmon/as to1 the Canadian product. This inspection;  is carried out by the inspection*  service of the Department of  Fisheries at its' Vancouver laboratory.  In addition to the Canadian  gdverniment inspection regulations, I am informed^ that the  ^majbr,/ importing companies  send their own personnel to  Japan to inspectvery thoroughly all parcels of Japanese canned salmon which they expect  to purchase. Thus it can be  said that? the Japanese canned  salmon product ^undergoes very  careful and thorough examination for quality,' first by the  purchasing compaiiies and then  by the Department of.Fisheries, before the product is offered for sale in Canada.  With respect to price, I am  informed that the basic: price  of sockeye salmon in Japan,  plus freight and ,15 percent  duty/plus labelling and selling  costs, is so close-to the current  Canadian market price, thajt  thereiis'little or no margin of  profit for the Cahadian>import-  V.': vsf,�� , ���< :-i{4 -..', .-���..'������;  / 7 The ��� matter of" using brand  labels on canned salmon from  / JapanX>va?6.';. a? decision.of the  companies .-importing?;tl^iipro*j;  duct.  There are no   Canadian/  . regulations against the use of  '?. sucfr brand labels on imported  canned salmon. It would ap-  loear obvious that the compan- ���  ies made ��� the-* decision on the.  basis that they had spent, over.  many years, .; l.^rge sums of  money in advertising their  brand labels, and bein? satisfied with the ouality of the im-  ? -ported:' products f not   to' have  ' used   the    established' labels  would" have meant the/loss. ot-j.<  their    advertising    and ...sales:,-.  promotion campaigns of many  . years.. The.,practice..!of using  establish?ed brand 'labels on imported canned fish products,  where quality is assured;' is' a  common one." ��� The labels "mentioned toy the hon. member for  Fraser Valley are also used on  imported canned fish products  from other countries, such as  shrimps from the United States  sardines from Norway arid  many other fish imports.  As to the size of the lettering  on the labels, "Product of Japan," this condition is governed by section 26 of the Meat  and Canned. Foods Act. The  key words in ^section 26 are  that these words should be  printed in a "plain and corispic-5  uous" manner. I might point  out for the benefit of hon.  members that in the c case of  meat products there are' no  specifijc requirement^ by the  Department of Agriculture  with respect to the height or  size of labelling on importation  of canned meats. In Ofther  words, the regulations concerning country of origin are identical for canned fish products  and canned meat products.  As far as the labelling of  imported Japanese canned salmon is concerned, I am satisfied that there have been no  attempts to deceive the Canadian consumer in" so far as  the designation of the country  of origin is concerned. In one  or two instances where the Department of Fisheries considered the words "Product of  Japan" were not sufficiently  conspicuous on the label, this  condition has been corrected  by the importing (companies  willingly and without delay.  I might add that all the panned salmon? imported from Japan has not been brought into:  Canada by British Columbia  canning companies. In~ quite a  number of cases imports; have,  been made by brokers in Montreal and other centres.  There are five companies,  actually, which are importing  salmon from Japan, and there  is no restriction on any person bringing in salmon from  Japan provided they pay the  duty and meet the regulations.  a Mr. Winch: That is not correct, and I know it .is not correct.  Mr. MacLean: These compan-  ;  ies concerned, Mr. Speaker, I  am  sure  jealously guard  the  quality of the canned fisn products they ? are selling under  their own brand labels. These  same companies, J. am most  confident, have a long-term interest in the salmon fishing  and processing industry of  Britsh Columbia.  Mr. Winch: I should like to  ask the minister if he can give  information to thiss house to  the effect that "the importation  of salmon from Japan in the  last. 18 months could only have  been done in the name of the  big three of British Columbia,  who have an arrangement with  the big two in Japan? I have  given information to the department of the Minister of  Justice (Mr. Fulton) and it has  not been disproved. Will, the  Minister of Fisheries deny that  statement? .-/       /'/  Mr. MaoLean: It. is hot my  intention, Mr. Speaker, to go  into commercial transactions  which may take place between  people who are engaged in the  salmon importing business, but  Coast News, Jan. 2,  1MB.    9  I can assure my feon. friend  that salmon has been imported  into this country by brokers  who are not connected with  ILe processing of salmon in  both 1955 and 1956.
