Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Jjlana f erry A. E. CROSS invite you to invite us to your wedding! PHONE The Lcthbridgc Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Friday, April 3, 1970 PAGES 15 TO 26 RESTAURANT AND PANCAKE HOUSE FACILITIES FOR 75 PEOPU Pass Towns Join Forces On Highway Realignment By JIM MAYB1E Herald SUH Writer BLA1RMORE The pro: posed realignment of Highway through the Crowsnest Pass appears to have stirred 'Pass councils to action and to a solidarity, which has been no- ticeably lacking. At a meeting here Thursday night of council representatives and from from BeUevue, Frank Blarmore and planners ANTWOLlimONlSTS SHOW FEARS An unident- ified anti-potlutionist talks "one who heed warning about the dangers of pollution." The demon- stration took place ct the College Shopping Mall and was in conjunction with.the pollution teach-in this weekend at the University of lethfaridge and'Winston Churchill High School. The teach-in got under way this morning at 9 o'clock and runs all day today and Saturday at the U of L. The teach-in moves to Winston Churchill for Sunday after- noon sessions starting at noon. -____ the (Hdman River Regional planning Commission it was decided a further meeting is to be hekd April 13 to develop a brief to be presented to UK provincial highways depart- ment, outlining the 'Pass views on the proposed realignment. Planners outlined the prov- ince's proposed highway re- alignment through .the 'Pass and asked the council reps for their feelings on the proposal. The plan had been outlined to the Cdeman council earlier in the week. The various 'Pass councils are to prepare separate briefs on their feelings regarding the proposed realignment for pre- sentation to the April 13 meet- ing. It was suggested that at that time the briefs could be compiled into one submission from all the 'Pass communities, giving it more weight, and then submitted to the partment. The planning commls s i on would also submit a brief to the highways department out- lining its views on the realign- ment, adding even more weight to the 'Pass brief. -The proposed realignment would wipe out about in assessment in BeUevue, Frank and Blairmore alone, ac- cording to preliminary figures presented at Thursday's meet- ing. Several hundred thousands of dollars worth of facilities would also be disturbed am disrupted. According to the propose! realignment several residences in the communities would be eliminated, two-thirds of Frank' assessment would be eliminat cd, the highway would cu through Blatrmore's eastern residential area swinging nort through the golf course and wild cut north near the new ugh school at Coleman and swing around the north side of own. The highway would be de- igned for high speed and vnere it cuts through a town t would be fenced, necessitat- ng overpasses or underpasses. The meetng suggested it would x belter to realign the high- way to the north, cutting off to :he north at the east end o Bellevue and joining the pres ent alignment at Coleman. This method would entirely miss all the communities, it was sug gesled by the councillors, anc avoid the loss c! assessment, the problem of relocating fa- cilities and the 100-odd families which would have to be re- located. Planners were fold such a route is possible to the north. REUEVES CAS PAINS 1970 VOLKSWAGENS MKED ROM NORSEMAN CAftWEKS ood PICK-UT CAMPEKS RAEWOOD My! MOTORS LTD. Comr 3rd and St. S.

Councillors were told that while the actual iiigrrtvay construction is not planned for lure or 10 years, the province is anxious to get the realignment surveyed now and the properly purchased. Immediate action is necessary it the communities are going to have any say in the location of the realignment, the meeting was told. If the submission fails to get the desired reaction, it was suggested a joint delegation go to Edmonton. The communities also have to know where the highway is going so they can plan for the future. Plans are progressing for consideration of an urban county form of government for the 'Pass. Councillors were told Thursday that with the loss of assessment which is likely to result from the highway re- ocation, an urban county brm of government would jring in new high industrial assessment from such places Sentinel, relieving the burden on residential tax- payers.

'The British Columbia Su- preme Court recently ruled that the breathalyzer test is in- valid, and charges'of impaired driving are" no longer being lad in B.C. under Section 224. 'Under Section 224 a person is charged with impaired driving when his blood-alcohol level ex- ceeds .08 as tested by the breathalyzer which is used as I proof of impairment. Under Section 222 a breath- alyzer reading is not used as pdoof of impairment. Impair- ment must be proved by other means. City Police Chief Car- penter said today that his de- partment would probably hold off laying charges under Sec- tion 224 until the question of validity is cleared up. City police will continue to lay charges under Section 222, said, and be taken in addition to other tests for-impairment. Before the introduction of Section 224 breathalyzer tests were taken as guidelines to im- pairment and were used with other evidence of impairment to convict a person.. Agent for the a! in Lethbridge, Vaughn Harti- gan, told The Herald today that he has had no word from the attorney-general's office con- cerning the question of breath atyzer tests and charges laii under Section 224. In Edmonton; a case believe! similar if not identical to OK British Columbia Supreme Court case, is to come up in police court Tuesday. The crown in Edmonton ap- to have paths it could bllow, according to observers there. Cases involving Section 224 now before magistrate's courts could be frozen pending an ap- peal B.C. decision. The1 Crown could also con- tinue witli the cases following them through the court system should it result in an appeal based on the.B.C.- decision. Courts in Lethbridge appear By STAN FRU33T Herald Stafl Writer Mayor Rod Sykes of Calgary rapped town planners in Al- berta Thursday as he spoke to members of the Alberta As- sessors' Association tit its 10th annual convention being held in Lethbridge. He said planners' failures were not in technology but ill lie management and judge- ment of the priorities of people. Social problems are being ig- nored and town planners are only interested in the physical aspects of planning. There is nothing more impor- tant than a decent place to this is the most press- ing need today, he added. Most town planners being en- floeers are not equipped to face problems beyond then- capabil- ities. The society! we live in is a consumer society only material goods are being pro- vided when new districts are being planned Mayor Sykes kind of people. Then- age wage, number of children am the way they live are all the same. Children and adults to grow up with different types of people rich, poor, old anc young, he said. How can they when they live in this type of development On the oilier hand there are suburban developments with lots of room being built, but its hack to the same old story it needs to be paid for ai lat's where the trouble starts. bo it's back to the economic nd social class split. What is needed is integrated neighborhoods, Mayor Sykes aid. Why plant seeds of de- struction into the new neighbor- hoods. There should be new life >ut old neighborhoods. Uayor Sykes termed these as he neglected: neighborhoods. likely to be' faced with the sanre choice of paths to follow. Conflicting Airline Schedule Would See Time Air Protest said. Town planners are no equiped to grasp the problem of town growth. Segregation, Alberta style as Mayor Sykes caBed if, was his second beef against town planners.

(Stubb) Ross, owner of Time Aif Ltd. said he hasn't seen the Pacific Western Air- lines proposed schedule for op- eration Out of Lethfaridge, but when he does, if it conflicts with his schedule, he's going to "yen his head off'. Mr. Ross made the statement following a story yesterday whkh he said, "some people could possibly misinterpret, "H PWA schedules Bights during our peak time, then a definite threat win be posed to our operation, but it all depends upon the schedule." Regarding the situation Steve Kotch, chairman, of the transportation committee for the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, said, "We prefer Air Canada to PWA for Ihe north-south Lethbridge-Calgary Edmonton run because it offers less interference to the local air lines firm. In tte opion of both Mr. Ros. and the chamber, it is in evilable that Air Canada wi be leaving Lethbridge, kavin le option for making applica- on by a regional carrier to PWA, or other airline com- lany.
