Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE UlllURIDOE LD Imstlny, Paul Whileldiv Quebec cabinet minister decides to stay CITY It wasn't cnllcd a news conlorenco hero of such occasions. Toothless laws Tho Ontario Hospital Labor Dis- Ncady'tlirce weeks aHo'ttie mm-medi- cal staff of Toronto's Western Hos- pital struck. Two weeks iiftcr that the Ontario Labor Relations Board decided that (lie. stnke was unlaw- ful, Toronto Western has acted. It lias told the strikers that they are dismissed, althouyh they probably will bo considered for re-hiriny when current negotiations between the labor relations adviser to the. hos- pital and the representative of the Canadian Union of Oeneral Kniploy- ees are concluded. 'Hie court initially refused lo issue an initial injunction which would have sent the workers back on the job. Why? Tlie presumption is that the law 'has one face for the unions and another for Ihe rest of us. It took two weeks for the labor rela- tions board to make up its mind that the strike was unlawful. that time the hospital was forced to re- ject many patients, some ot them waiting for vital surgery lo discover whether they had cancer. For some of these patients the dispute has made ttio difference between life and death. The employees have taken the law into their own hands. They are attempting to do so with impunity. The aclion of the hospital authorities in dismissing tliem under Ihese circumstances is entirely justi- fied. Contempt for the law whether by groups or individuals can only end in tyranny. The hospital's employees have grievances which they consider grat- ifying for taking matters into their own hands, if the government of On- atrio does not lake action ngainst unions which flout the law, chaos in all kinds public service will ensue. It should write legislation allowing for disbandinent of illegally striking unions and exact financial penalties. Toothless laws are useless. NJ front-pngo news outsklo Quebec province, but tlie de- cision of Claude Castonijuay lo remain a member of Premier Bourassa's cabinet was nonthe- loss an important development in Canadian politics. As social affairs minister Mr. Castonfinay is one of most powerful and influential men in Quebec. He is also tlio cliief architect of Ills province's constitutional relations with ilio federal government, and liail threatened lo resign at Ilio height of tlie labor crisis last May because of Ihe stalemate in talks with Ottawa. Recently, Mr. Castongnay to announce that after "period of reflection" bo had decided to continue in the cabi- net, ending speculation that bo would quit the provincial Liber- als lo Join with Ilono Leves- iiuc's Parti Qucbecois, Mr. Castonguay's reasons for staying are apparently more pragmatic than ideological lie said ho feels liu must con- tinue to work out a compre- hensive social welfare policy and press for the necessary concessions from Ottawa. His announcement wasn't embel- lished with the usual platitudes about renewed confidence in the government lhat are typical Inevitably, however, Mr. Cas- tongiiay'a decision to remain a Liberal and a liournsba cabi- net minister Is being interpret- ed n.s an endorsement lhat federalism while it Is not wliat ninny French-Canadians would like It lo lw Is sllll a viable alternative in Quebec.

This hn said, would amount to "surrender" and Egypt certainly had no inten- tion of doing that. (President Sadat conveniently ignored the fact lhat the reverse is (me in certain cases. For instance the President of Pakistan went recently !o New Delhi to nego- tiate successfully the withdrawal of Indian troops from his country. This was not considered a further "defeat" Muammar Qadahfi hates the Rus- sians almost as much as he likes himself. Now the Egyptian president has followed up the rhetoric with missile- firing. Israel says that two of its planes were on a routine mission over the Sinai when they were at- tacked by Aral) ground-to-air mis- siles Egypt claims one tho planes was hit; the Israelis say that both aircraft escaped. You pay your money and make your choice on Ihis one. It may he, as many commentators arc saying, that the Soviets have suf- fered a monstrous diplomatic defeat "The 'with it' guys miff etl be wearing 'em these doyj but that's MY kerchiel and I'M tteatlng it tonight! "I'm very until if comes to took-lhc-rkh tax progromsf" As an Important member of the Bourassa cabinet, Mr. Cas- tonguay said ho will use tho next federal election to "inform Ihe public" about relations with Iho federal government through speeches and press conferences. The development of a com- prehensive social affairs policy the myriad of various assistance plans in more economical and logical ways-is the major preoccupa- tion ol Ihu minister. II is also Ihe key to important constitu- lional reforms and the palria- tion of the Urillsh North Ameri- ca Act. Premier Bourassa vetoed tho Victoria constitutional charter last year chiefly bo hail failed to gain important so- cial affairs concessions from Ottawa. He felt he would loso much of his bargaining power if the liritish North America Act were jiatiialcd before ho got the changes Quebec wants. Although Mr. Castonguay's announcement recently was largely ignored by the press outside Quebec unlike his threat lo resign at Ihe height of May's labur lurmoil it will have a lonK-lcrm effect extend- ing across provincial borders. II ensured that the minister, who has been a central figure In consliUitional negotiations, will continue to have a major say in events that will shapo Canada for years to come.

He told his story to Maurice Schumann, foreign minister of France and Mine. Bandaranaike, ings at his private residence. Mao gave no reasons for deciding to tell all at this time.

What he would probably like to know, and probably doesn't, is how that docu- ment got into the hands of intelli- ernment informa the text of a document which they obtained through their intelligence agents on the mainland. This top secret document, telling the story of Lin Piao's involvement in the plot to dence of revelations from Taipei and those from Peking within a few days of one another would indicate that Mao's intelligence services are not precisely what they should be, The power of the grape f OUTTS "Could you tell me-, by any chance, why rnir veterinary officer would enter J2 of lablc v.ine on his list of drug expenses?
