Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Government Urged To Adopt 'Positive Housing Program9 OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities this week urged the federal cabinet to adopt "a positive housing program" to serve the dual purpose of cre- ating jobs and relieving the current bousing shortage. In presenting the federation's annual brief to the cabinet, fed- eration president Mayor Allan O'Brien of Halifax said it is nec- essary to pursue policies de- signed "to cope with high infla- tion and high unemployment si- multaneously." He said the munkipalitief recognize that it is in their m- lerest to support "a broadscale attack on but at .the same time deplore unemploy- ment caused by the anti-infla- tion drive. There has long been an unfor- tunate tendency for both the federal government and the pro- vincial governments to regard municipalities as "convenient spending agencies in tunes of recession and convenient non- speodiBg agencies a' times of be said. He noted that rising unem- ployment and expanded wel- fare rolls have placed an added ixirden on municipal finances, critically reducing money re- quired to deal effectively with such problems as housing, ur- ban transportation and pollu- tion control. URGES CHANGE Mayor O'Brien. called for a change from a policy of "re- gional discrimination" to one of .gram discrimination" which' would recognize housing rh unemployment as "equal, al- though not necessarily related" pattern. He said any solution to urban problems must involve close cooperation among federal, provincial and municipal au- thorities. 'Ibe federal governmeBt, he said, can assist in two ways: by "getting its own urban poKqr in focus" and by co-ortimting urban policies among the three levels of government. He stressed that such co-oper- ation ran be effective' only if each level of government is al- Iwtd to participate in deter- raining 1 o n g term spending priorities. Federal-provincial conferences are therefore an in- adequate means of dealing uith urban problems. IB receiving the brief Prime Minister Trudeau said he fully subicribes the federation's belief that effective long-term planning ii needed to combat "If we dont act nr the fu- rore of Canada will be deter- mined by economic and social forces outside our he said. He promised the government would give careful consideration to any specific recommenda- tions the federation could offer concerning ways in which the federal government can im- prove its co-ordinating role among the three levels of gov- ernment. Treasury Board Chairman C. M. Drury said the government's campaign against inflation re- quires "painful lim- iting mooey available to munici- palities in the immediate future. Robert Andras, minister with- out portfolio responsible for housing, defended the govern- ment's housing policy but agreed that it could be im- proved by better planning. He also expressed strong sup- port for the government's con- tinued policy of anti infla- tionary restraint, saying "un- less we beat inflation, no pro- gram will be of any value in the long run."
