Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta IETHOSIDOE HERMO Friday, Auguit 1, 1775---..... centres By ItUDY IIAl'GEXEDER llrrald -Staff Writer WINN'Il'EG It threat o! destruction enhances unity, 30 friendship centres throughout the country milled to fend off federal government inac- tion which threatens exis- tence. A national association of friendship centres "crisis fund" was set up Thursday by delegates from six provinces and hvo territories to "continue the fight for friendship centres in the event of massive closures due to money short- ages." The crisis arises from feder- al delays in implementing a five year million deal for Ihe centres that was recently announced Secretary of State Gerard Pctlelier. All centres participating in the five day annual confer- ence, concludes today, contributed monies. Obonsawin, N A FC president, from Ucd Lake, Ont., said most centres have MFC says lication been without federal funds since March. Centres in Calgary and Kd- monton will close within t h e next month unless "immediate federal support is he said. Tho centre in London, Ont. is already closed and others face the same prospect. Calgary and Kdmonton cen- tre delegations joined their southern Alberta Pinchcr Creek and Lethbridge count- erparts, saying, "We all have to pitch in at a time like this (to the crisis All seven Alberta centre delegations promised to ask their governing boards to pro- vide support to the fund al- T i. though most are "acutely short of money." The unanimous Alberta deci- sion patched a split thai form- ed between the major C'nlRary nnd Edmonton centres and southern Alberta over a con- stitutional issue earlier tins week. Mr. n 11 hough visibly moved by the show of national ury.ty, urged delegates to further unification hy con- tinuing to be concerned about all centres. "Local centres must be more vocal, not only to express tlicir own views nnd programs to tlie publie but also for all lie said. unnecessary An application 1o expand the Lethbridge Herald building was withdrawn by the development officer at a Municipal Plan- ning Commission meeting. After discussing the applica- tion, submitted by R o b i n s Mitchell Watson architects, the MFC decided there was no rea- son for it to come before them. The developer must simply pur- chase a building permit at city hall. There was some confusion about tiic zoning of tlie prop- erty on which Tile Herald build- ing sits end to the west, where tlie building v.-ill be expanded. An interpretation at city hall had classified the desired use, and existing use, of tlie land as conditionally permissible and requiring MPC approval. A check 01" the zoning in the area, during the meeting, show- ed the use is fully permissible. Construction will l-.kely begin in September on a two storey, 50 by 125-foot expansion of tba buildinp. On other business. the com- mission approved an applica- tion from (lien Little Construc- tion to build a short Hagen Electric Ltd. at 1205 2nd Ave. S. Two applications, frcrn .loe's Mobile Homes and liridpc Villa Sales to display and roll mobile homes, were tabled by the com- mission. WINNIPEG The North- west Territories' two friend- ship centres arc faced with n unique funding problem, says j Cindy Erasmus, n Company of Young Canadians worker rep- resenting both centres. Although the recently-estab- lished NAV.T. centres in Inuvik end Yellowknifo get their op- erating costs directly from the federal government, no money is available for programing, she said at the National Asso- ciation of Friendship Centres annual meeting here. Under existing federal terms, Canadian friendship centres get operating costs from Otta- wa hut must seek programing costs from other sources ally provincial governments and municipalities. Mrs. Erasmus said because Uie N.W.T. government itself operates under a S93 million federal grant which is "tightly northern friendship ccttres "can hardly expect a grant from a Because of tight territorial budgeting due to the limited federal grant, no money is left over for friendship centres, she said. If the federal government does provide programming money for N.W.T. centres, she could foresee the establishment of centres in Hay River, Fort Smith, and Frobisher Bay. In an effort to change feder- al policy regarding the N.W.T. friendship centres, delegates from 39 Canadian centres at the NAFC annual conference petitioned the government to make the necessary changes. These recommended charges should also apply to the Yukon, delegates said.
