Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta g _ THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, April 5, 19, 3 Prevent shore erosion Garbage barrier reef suggested for lake TORONTO (CP) A "great hairier reef of solid cculd be bull I along .the north shore of Lake On- tario, preventing erosion and at the same time getting rid of the cities' solid wastes, says retired designer Charles Morrow, 74. He made the suggestion in a letter to Environment Min- ister James Auld's Solid Waste Task has come under heavy criticism for lack of action and is con- sidering new ways for solid waste disposal. Ontario's solid waste totals more than six million tons an- nually and Metropolitan To- ronto's garbage is growing at five per cent a year and now costs a ton to carry away. "My idea would cost noth- ing, Jess than nothing when you consider how much the province spends to buy land and transport said By dumping almost non-pol- Ma'nt-trcated" garbage into the lake, the problems of rats and insects around garbage dumps would be eliminated. "It could take 500 years to complete a continuous reef from the Bay of Quinte to said Mr. Morrow. "But it wouldn't take that long to build sections of it in areas where it's needed now-" He suggested the reef be built 800 to feet off shore to a height of eight feet above water level. "Next the canal between the shore and reef would be dredged and the material dumped on top so trees and grass could grow. parkland along the shore of the he said SOME LICENSED During the French regime in Canada, the Montreal fur trade was carried en by licensed trad- ers and by unlicensed coureurs de bois.

New the people and the politi- cal establishment including president Pompidou are watching Renault, the giant, state-run automobile firm that has a reputation as the "test- ing bench" of French industry. Renault is in trouble. In a message to the new Parliament Tuesday Pompidou mentioned "assembly line work that makes the working man and just a Enk in a chain." It is becoming, he said, "less and less tolerated." This time the trouble centers on the immigrant workers an often despised and exploited sub-proletariat that is begin- ning to prickle the French con- science. Four hundred of them sud- denly walked off the job at BiEancourt, a suburb southwest of Paris. Their wildcat strike precipitated a lay-off of more skilled workers that closed the plant on the island of Seguin in the middle of the Seine. Sympathy strikes are proliferating.

They plan to join in a Puff- Out here April 11 to try to stop people from smoking them- selves to death- The organizations are the On- tario Heart Foundation, the Ca- nadian Cancer Society and the York-Toronto Tuberculosis and Respiratory Disease Associ- ation. "The concept of Alcoholics Anonymous has never been tried with smokers." said Es- ther Richards, a spokesman for the Heart Fund and co-ordina- tor of the joint effort. "We know that group therapy and the buddy system, which have a great deal of merit, have never been tried with smokers. And we'd like to try them." She said it 5s hoped the April II meeting will recruit about 32 area captains across Metropoli- tan Toronto. A dozen or more meeting places will ibe desig- nated so that those wishing to attend wiJl have "a place to and will know where the next meeting will b? held. Books, speakers, films and every educational help avail- able will be used. Miss Richards said the Puff- Out grew out <-.f an ex- perimental Xcw Year's Day resolution clinic in which 75 IwrerS wp and resolved to stop smoking. The sponsor, the Heart Fund, was later approached by offi- rung in every field of work. They want not just money, but status and the right to learn skills. And they have grown bolder. "We are not slaves. We are men, like other men, and our demands are a young Spaniard said angrily at a union meeting in, grirny Bilian- court this week. The leaders of the huge Com- munist and leftist labor feder- ations are now scrambling to catch up with their rank-and- file. They came out in support this weekend for both the stu- dent demonstrators and the Renault strikers. They want to avoid their tac- tical mistake during the 1963 upheavals, when they held back from shoring up student- worker revolts, and as a re- sult, never quite gained con- trol of events, which simply surged beyond them. John Condon, an American labor expert here, com- pared the unrest anwung young workers here, French and non- French, to what is happening on the American scene. "Money no longer buys the acceptance of intolerable work on the as- sembly line. Moreover, the communist dominated Gener- al Confederation of Labor no longer exercises the over- whelming power it used to have at Renault." He pointed out that wildcat strikes and rejections of nego- tiated contracts by union members are on the rise both here and in the United States "the nightmare of organ- ized labor."

Half of the 95.000 workers i Renault now employs through- out France are immigrants. The men who struck- at Billan- court operate hydraulic presses that stamp out car body parts. Those at the union meeting estimated that they perform the same set of gestures 353 times an hour, 43 hours a week. For this a new worker makes about weekly in take-home pay. The average commut- ing time between the outskirts of Paris and the job is be- tween two and three hours. All the 400 BiUanccurt immi- grants do the same kind of job, but only 16 among them have been given the "qualified" status that would enable them to move upward. Last week, Renault's man- agement offered the strikers a one-cent an hour raise but re- fused to give them the higher rank they sought.

Condon predicted that even- tually, the immigrant workers would get more money but per- haps no more status. "Renault has to have semiskilled work- ers in order to go he said. "Lcck what happened in New York city. The garbage collectors now are higher-paid than some people in skilled jc-bs. I think Renault might wind up with that kind of re- versal cf the pay scale."
