"Perhaps the minister would have the flag poles suggested Gordon Taylor (SC- Public Works Minister Win- ston Backus had said there has been delay in putting Al- berta flags everywhere they should be because a lot of flags have been stolen in the past. "We are trying to put up flag poles that have a particu- lar type of internal locking de- vice so flags can be put up and they won't be tampered he told Mr. Taylor. Alberta's policy was to erect provincial flags at major entry and exit points with other prov- inces. "The Canadian flag, of course, as the one that is erect- ed along the borders between Alberta and the States, but I believe we should have an Al- berta flag there too, in Alber- ta."
