Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, Auguit 12, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Ottawa Hosts Fifth Parley By DAVE McINTOSH OTTAWA (CP) The fifth federal-provincial constitutional conference will be held here Sept. 14-16, officials disclosed Tuesday. It will be closed to press and public. The first two days will be de- voted to the constitutional view and the third day to gen- eral federal-provincial relations, in particular the federal propos- als for tax reform. At their recent Winnipeg meeting, the premiers were more or less united in their op- position to Ottawa's tax change proposals. The main opponent was probably Premier Robert Bourassa of Quebec. The constitutional part of the talks may determine whether Canada can achieve a new con- stitution at all in this decade. The process of constitutional review itself will be a main item on the agenda and Prime Ministre Trudeau and the pre- miers will try to decide whether the process should be speeded up and, if so, how. Some provinces, particularly western ones, have stated bluntly since the constitutional review began in 1968 that they do not regard a new constitution is, a rewritten, and prob- ably renamed, British North America urgent. These provinces have repeat- edly stressed economic prob- lems, POSTPONED FHOM JUNE The fifth constitutional confer- ence was originally scheduled for June but Mr. Bourassa needed time to review his prov- ince's position after his election victory April 29 and several othra- premiers could not attend on the proposed dates. In proposing a September date, Mr. Trudeau suggested to the premiers that the confer- ence take a hard look at the need for accelerating the consti- tutional review. The original federal target for a new constitution was three to five years. Now the estimate is at least 10 years. If the provinces agree to a speed-up, the next conference probably will be held in Decem- ber. It would be an open one. Mr. Bourassa, also finance minister, has, like his predeces- sors, called for redistribution of taxation powers between Ot- tawa and the provinces. He said in June he wants con- cessions from the federal au- thority to provide more funds for Quebec's economic develop- ment. There was "growing ine- quality" between Ottawa and the provinces in the field of tax- Ing power. FBI Accused Of Tapping Telephones ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) lie president of the Southern Chris- t i a n Leadership Conference charged Tuesday that the FBI still is tapping telephones of of- ficials within the civil rights or- ganization. Rev. Ralph David Abernathy responded to questions about a Time magazine story which said FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover confronted the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with wiretaps disclosing alleged extramarital activities. Abernathy was asked at a news conference whether or not the FBI is continuing to tap the telephone conversations of top SCLC officials. he replied, "not only of SCLC officials but just about anyone who stands up for jus- tice in Mis country today." HOLD NEWS CONFERENCE He was questioned at a news conference, which opened the annual convention of the SCLC. The Time story was about a new book on King, entitled The King God Didn't Save, by John Williams. King, former SCLC president and Nobel Peace Prize winner, was assassinated at Memphis, Tenn., in April, 1968. Time said the FBI director met with King in 1964, "lec- tured" him about his morals and suggested that he down Ins criticism of the FBI. who said he was present at the meeting with King and Hoover, denied any such conversation took place. He said the meeting concerned "the FBI's failure to stand up and protect thd right of black people in the South" on some occasions- i Young Men's Western Jeans For Out-going guys jeans can't be beat!
