Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETH6RIDGE HERALD Thursday, April 5, 1973 News in brief ISeiv ilu sweeps B.C. VICTORIA (CP) A new type of influenza is sweeping across British Columbia, the provincial health department reported Wednesday. A spokesman in Health Min- ister Dennis Cocke's office identified the new outbreak as influenza type B. Earlier this year, thousands of British Co- lumbians were ill with influen- za type A, also referred to as Lcrdon flu. Type B apparent- ly reached this province from Hawaii. Smuggling ring probed OTTAWA investiga- tion has started to determine whether a Mafia ring centered in Toronto is smuggling young Italian men into the United States, Immigration Minister Robert Andras said Wednesday. The investigation should be completed in a few clays, he said in an interview. A spokesman in RCiEP head- quarters said the force has been aware for some time that smuggling could have been tak- ing place. Dr. Morton Shulman, a New Democratic member of the On- tario legislature, said Tuesday the ring operates in Toronto and provides illegal immigrants for work in the New York con- struction industry or who be- come "button men'' in organ- ized crime.

Ted Hinman (SC-Cardston) asked if the province would protest the "very strong possi- bility" of uncensored movies being shown on television. Mr. Getty said the question was hypothetical but would be pleased to investigate if neces- sary to have the situation "changed to the benefit of all Albertans." NO DECISION The province has not yet de- j cided whether it would protest to the television networks or the federal government if films that were occe censored or banned are shown on television, says Don Getty, intergovern- mental affairs minister. "If there is a chance of that happening there will be a study on what the government will he told E. W.

Grant Notley, New Democrat- NDP policies may affect U.S. firms NEW YORK New Democratic Party in Brit- ish Columbia is "moving ahead with a socialist program rival- ling that of the Allende govern- ment in Chile." says an article in the current edition of Bar- ron's, a business weekly jour- nal. The article, written by David A. Lpegwing, says the socialist policies of Premier Dave Bar- rett may affect several United States companies which have investments in the province. and Local Initiatives Program (L-I.P.) have become valuable tools in the economic manage- ment of the country, Max.

Programs such as OFY, how- ever, would retain their identity and Mr. Beck said "task forces are trying to look in more de- tail" at ways such programs can be used as levers in- fluencing the economy. Both OFY and L.I.P. were started on an ad hoc basis, Mr. Beck said in an interview. There was a certain degree of panic and a lot of dispute about their worth.

Investment bill debate ended OTTAWA (CP) Trade Min- ister Alastair Gillespie shep- herded his bill to screen foreign investment through second reading in the Commons Wednesday and called it a dra- matic occurrence. However, only 29 of the 264 members were present when the bill was sent on to House finance committee for study and possible amendment, end- ing four days of debate. The New Democratic Party has indicated it will try in com- mittee to expand application of the bill, and to strengthen its measures for restricting foreign control of the economy. There was one NDP member present for second reading. The debate Wednesday was limited, by agreement, to 15 minutes for each member. Even so, attendance hovered around 20 and at one point dipped to 17, three members fewer than are needed for a House quorum. The Commons deals today with personal income tax changes proposed last May. Passage of the changes is nec- essary to make income tax leg- islation conform with the tax forms now in use. Thousands of tax refunds for senior citizens, disabled persons and university students, are being delayed until the amend- ments are passed. All parties in the House have indicated they will expedite passage of the amendments. Mr. Gillespie closed debate on the foreign investment review bill Wednesday by commenting on the timeliness of the meas- ure- All members sense an ur- gency, he said, about enacting legislation to control the ex- pansion of foreign economic control in Canada. The legislation was a key in the government's "coherent set of policies" to encourage and assist industry. The bill would create a re- view agency to screen the takeover of Canadian com- panies by foreign corporations, or the creation of new com- panies in Canada by foreign corporations. The NDP plan to amend the bill, Mr. Gillespie said, is based on a misunderstanding. He said the proposed review board will, when considering whether to al- low foreign investment, exam- ine such things as the investor's procurement and export policies to ensure that as many oper- ations as possible are carried on in Canada to the profit of Canadians. This has as far as any such bill could go in realistic terms. "It's inconceivable that we could set up a bureaucracy to screen all transactions." Serening the expansion of existing foreign-owned com- panies in Canada will present "horrendous administrative he said.
