Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Sciturdoy, April 18, 1970 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - J,J$ Canadian Content Proposals Issue Canada's Two Largest Private TV Stations Resign CAB Membership OTTAWA (CP) - Implementation of Canadian Radio-Television Commission proposals for increasing Canadian content on radio and TV appeared to edge closer Friday as a wide crack developed in what had been fairly solid opposition. CFTO-TV in Toronto and CJOH-TV in Ottawa, the largest private TV stations in Canada, announced their resignations from the Canadian Association of Broadcasters, spokesman for most private stations. A CFTO telegram to the C.A.B. ' expressed disappointment with the association's views presented during a CRTC SHOE REPAIRS ? BEST ?

CFTO is the largest private station in panada. CJOH, in its telegram, said it. would not associate itself with the "negative attitude" of the C.A.B. in opposing the Canadian content proposals. C.A.B. has mounted the strongest criticism of the proposals so far. Its solid opposition was considered by many the toughest obstacle facing the CRTC. Stuart Griffiths, president of Bushnell Communications Ltd., owners of CJOH, said in an interview Friday he hopes other C.A.B. members will follow the lead of his station and CFTO. W. D.

One result: a price increase in the thousands of maps distributed by the federal department of energy, mines and resources. Its most popular map went up to $1 a copy from 50 cents and others had lesser increases, all effective last Jan. I. A wave of protests followed and the gears were hastily reversed. Effective April 15, says a notice sent to hundreds of persons and groups, map prices revert to the 1969 level. The reason given is to follow the government's "desire to encourage the fight against inflation by example." INSURANCE  LIABILITY  BONDS  AUTO  FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD.

Phone 327-1541 ener and newly-elected C.A.B. president, said in an interview he had not been informed of CFTO's withdrawal although he had. talked earlier Friday to Mr. Griffiths. He said he regrets the resignations but added he was not prepared to comment further. The issue at stake in the hearings is the CRTC's proposals for increasing Canadian content on Agricultural Research In Canada Keeps Pace OTTAWA (CP) - Agricultural research in Canada is generally keeping pace with that of other, countries despite a freeze in allocations for fesearch in the agriculture department's 1970-71 spending estimates, Deputy Agriculture Minister S. B. Williams said here. Mr. 'Williams told the Com-m o n s agriculture committee total funds for grain and livestock research have remained "almost exactly constant" with last year's level. "But the department fully recognizes the importance of research and for that reason it has curtailed major capital expenditures of about $3,000,000 in order to maintain the current level of research." He said Canada is holding its own in research among its agricultural competitors and noted there is "considerable cross-communication" with other nations in this regard. The deputy minister was replying to Alf Gleave (NDP- Saskatoon-Biggar) who said the department should be giving much higher priority to its research program. Mr. Gleave cited a recent re- Stroniberg Wins Tory Backing CAM-ROSE (CP) - Gordon Stromberg of New Norway, was nominated to contest Cam-rose constituency for the Progressive Conservatives in the next provincial general election.

Have you shied away from a Volkswagen because your wife shies away from a stickshift? Does she appreciate the economical idea of a VW, but not the way the idea looks?

He suggested additional research funds be made available through a supplementary grant. "When I asked about this last year I. was told that the situation was fairly fixed. I find it very disturbing that the situation still appears to be fairly fixed." Ross Whicher (L-Bruce) said western farmers are in "very bad shape" mainly because the government has not pursued a sufficiently aggressive grain marketing policy. Mr. Williams agreed that the Canadian government "has not done enough" i airfit area of marketing research but said this activity is being increased. TV to 60 per cent of the daily schedule and increasing Canadian music played by AM raditi stations to 30 per cent. The private broadcasters have told the commission that meeting the proposals would lead to a downgrading of quality in Canadian programs and would be extremely expensive -perhaps more than stations could afford. In Toronto, John Basselt, president of CFTO-TV, said his station resigned from the C.A.B. because "we cannot be associated with such a performance as yesterday." t Flash!
