In all fair- ness to local swingers, Herald photographer Rick Ervin has captured the sprinkler system in action at the Bridge Valley Golf Course. Immigration rule hurts 128 U of L students Consumerism By HERB LEGG Herald Staff Writer Foreign students at the Uni- versity of Lethbridge are showing little concern over changes in Canadian immi- gration policies changes which could result in the end of their carrpus education Under the new regulations, non immigrants, including student visa holders, will not be granted work permits if Canadian citizens or landed immigrants are available for the jobs in question. Foreign students at the Uni- vers'ty of Alberta have ap- pealed to Ottawa for exemp- tion from the new regulations. They claim summer einp.oj- nrent is needed to supplement personal savings and paren- tal assistance used to cortmue their Canadian university ed- ucation An official of ihs University of 'Western Ontario has esti- mated foreign students may be deported at the end of the current university term because cf the immi- gration changes At least 150 cf 400 foreign students at UWO could face expulsion from Canada under the new laws, spokesmen saj. On the Lethbridge campus, 128 foreign students from 22 countries will be affected by the immigration changes Counselling sen ice co-or- dinator at the U of L, Dave says he has had onlv one inquiry from a foreign student. University registrar J D. Oviatt says he espects no change in existing U of L poli- cy toward foreign students Mr. Oviatt said non-Cana- dian students here are re- ciuired to pass a test of the English language and given a student visa for sub- mission to Ottawa. Because no funds for stu- dent support are available to foreigners at the U cf L, non- Canadian students are expect- ed to provide at least per year for continuation of their education on the Leth- bridge campus Mr. Oviatt said his depart- ment is not concerned with summer employment for for- eign students. Neither is the university's counselling de- partment. "We're a placement of- says Mr. Ajers. A spokesman for Canada Manpower's student place- ment service at Lethbridge says EO information has been released from Ottawa on the immigration changes and their relation to foreign stu- dent employment. The spokesman said all stu- dents seeking Manpower as- sistance for summer jobs are still being placed on the cen- tre s active files He said it is too early to predict what effect fhe immi- gration changes will have on local student employment So far, no sper-fir> inquiries on the new regulations bean made to Canada Man- power here. Work permits that foreign students formerly received have been cut off bvv the nev? laws. Regulations now re- quire a student to take a let- ter from a prospective em- ployer to Canada Manpower when he seeks a cew work permit If a Canadian or landed im- migrant qualifies for the stu- dent joX the stu- dent will cot be issued a per- mit. Without work, many stu- dents will not be able to af- ford to return to university. Any student without sum- mer employment, or without funds to register for summer school, must leave Canada at the end of this term which is completed for most faculties April 14. New immigration laws are expected to affect non- Canadian professors or in- structors at the university level. U of L president Dr. Bill Becfcel said no information on the number of non-Canadian professors at the local campus is available and if it was, he wouldn't give out the in- formation: not the tend of thing we like to Dr. Bec- kel said. Despite Dr. Beckers deni- als, information on foreign instructors at the U of L has been compiled through 3 iffil Herald survey and through the Moir Commission Report, released in 1972. Last year, according to gov- ernment statistics, the Uni- versity of Lethbridge had the second highest percentage of non-Canadisn academic staff in Alberta The Moir Report states 43 per cent of academic staff at the U of L are non-Canadians, exceeded only by tha 55 per cent total for the University of Calgary. Pull dates rule planned By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Writer CALGARY Legislation requiring food processors to stamp pull dates on their product packages is being put together by the federal de- partment of consumer and corporate affairs for govern- ment consideration. The bill would affect goods which have a shelf life of six months or less, Sally Mer- chant, Alberta representative for the department said here Wednesday. Speaking at a seminar on public health and the con- sumer, Mrs. Merchant said the proposal is to stamp a date, which is readable by the public on packages stat- ing that after the fixed date, the "product doesn't perform at its optimum best." The legislation would not require the product to be re- moved from the shelf after that date, Mrs. Merchant said, but would serve as in- formation to the consumer to do with what he wants Besides aiding the consum- er, the ligisladon could bene- fit both the retailer and m a n uf a c rurer HI planning more realistic manufacturing and buying of the product, she said. Public health inspectors attending he workshop at the Highlander Motor Hotel suggested the present system of date coding foods (stamp- ing a date in code on a prod- uct indicating its age) is in- sufficient. One inspector told the sem- inar he had found meat at the wholesale level which, according to the date stamp- ed on it, was four months old. Mrs. Merchant said she had seen a case, on the oth- er hand, where a date which hadn't arrived yet was stamped on a product to in- dicate the date it was put on the market. Inspectors should be middle men CALGARY Public heaKh inspectors should be- come complaint officers for consumers and middle men between environmental agen- cies and the community, a health official says. Dr. J. M Glenroy. director of food control and sanitation for Toronto, told about 40 public health inspectors at a seminar here then- roles should be changing so they can contribute to the environ- mental and consumer band- wagons. One way of becoming more responsive to consumerism, Dr. Glenroy suggested, is to push for publication in local newspapers of blacklists con- taining the names of firms prosecuted for violations of the health act They should also consider giving interpretation of lab results on bacteria counts for suspected food poisoning, rather than simply releasing the figures.
