Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIOGE August Language hassle splits town ASSINIBOIA. Sask. (CP) In this community of 000 about 75 miles southwest of Regina, children in the school- yards have a new insult. They call each other "French, One of the reper- cussions of an unsuccessful effort by some local families to get French- language instruction for their children. Reactions to the idea have varied from hate mail to the cold-shoulder treat- ment and jewelry store owner Francois Morin says his business has dropped off since he began ad- vocating it. "I've made up my mind that if I can't make my liv- ing here any longer because of the fact I sup- port both of the official lan- guages, then I'll go somewhere he says. Assiniboia is in the centre of one of seven Saskatchewan areas designated by Ottawa as bilingual for purposes of federal government ser- vices. The issue began this spr- ing when a group of parents asked L'Association Culturelle Franco- Canadienne de la Saskatchewan for help in conducting a survey to see whether parents of chil- dren entering grade one this fall would favor French-language instruc- tion on the curriculum. HALF IN FAVOR Of the 52 families sur- veyed, half favored instruction in French for at least an hour daily if "not harmful to English instruc- tion" and 14 signed a form May have to move The four children of Louis and Diane Piche, of Assiniboia, Sask., from left, Mario, 5, Denise, 8, Gisele. 10, and Michel, 11, will have to either have all-English education or go to another town. stating that they would send their children to a class where half of the instruction is in French. A group of six parents submitted the survey results to the school and unit boards in April, with a brief calling for a bilingual program. The school board im- mediately undertook its own survey. Murray Huck, superintendent of educa- tion for Assiniboia school unit, says "the only survey I trust is the one I do." Although results of the board's survey were not made public in detail, sup- port for a class with half the instruction in French apparently dropped to 10 from 14 families. Local teachers entered the controversy, stating their objections to the idea. One of the parents back- ing the idea. Don McLaren, says he attended one meeting called by a teacher who said "I like my job they way it is and I don't want to change it." Teachers at two schools presented a brief to the unit board asserting that switching from language to language in instruction is detrimental to a child's development and that non- English-speaking children could not make satisfac- tory progress in English with a limited amount of time devoted to teaching that language. The board rejected the proposal for a bilingual class, but board chairman Bill Hunt said the decision would have to be recon- sidered if there were 20 children for bilingual instruction. The parents then propos- ed a special class combin- ing grades one and two. They said 19 children would enroll if that class were available. The board said the proposal came too late to be considered. The backers of the original proposal say they do not want to raise the issue another time. "We didn't want to make a says Mr. McLaren, adding "I don't want this to happen again." Alcohol decision reached problems serious CALGARY (CP) It's time for a serious look at the alcohol problems involved in half of Canada's crime, a National Parole Service of- ficial says. Crime is already costing the country more than a billion a year for policing and correc- tions services, said Grant Spiro, executive director of the service's Calgary office. Some of the people com- mitting these crimes are go- ing to court over and over again when they could be of value to society if they could stay sober, he said during a panel discussion at the summer school on alcohol and drugs. Provincial Court Judge Gary Cioni agreed with Mr. Spiro that judges need more education OP the effects of drugs and alcohol. seem to forget about us. No one sees fit to provide us with the material or facilities for said Judge Cioni of Calgary. He said few judges view im- prisonment as effective in rehabilitating offenders, but said judges are prisoners of the laws they are bound to apply. It's up to the public and the social services professionals to come up with a better alter- native than jail, he said.
