Phone 328-8161 "The Pioneer and Leading Retail Shop in Lcthbridge" t FINEST QUALITY PASTRY AND BAKERY PRODUCTS 700 attend Lethbridge rally Strom charges into election windup By MYRON JOHNSON Staff Writer Premier Harry Strom charged Tuesday the Leth- bridge West candidate is con- tradicting Conservative party policy in opposing sli'ip mining at Canmore. Replying to an open letter published as an advertisement by Dick Gray attacking the strip mining operation. Strom stated that the Conserva- tive MLA for the Canmore area, Clarence CopithoiTi, has said the mining "must con- and Conservative lead- er Peter has said he has "no intention of closing the operation." "Yet in Lethbridge, Mr. Gray is saying his party is totally against the Mr. Strom said. "The Conservatives are say- ing one thing in one part of the province and another thing in other parts." The premier was speaking a crowd of about 700 at a Social Credit rally in LcLh- bridge attended by four S'ocred candidates in Ihc Aug. 30 pro- vincial election Dick Gruen- ivald, Lethbi'idge Wcsl; John Anderson, Lethbridge E as Doug Miller, Taber-Warncr, and E. W. Hinman, Cardston. Mr. Strom agreed attention mast be given to protecting the environment, but ho added So- cial Credit was taking steps in this direction long before pollu- tion became a public issue. He noted the Social Credit government has established a department of the environment, and has passed Clean Water, Clean Air and Wilderness Areas Acts. "The government has also expanded its provincial parks system, reforested harvested areas and provided continued support for the provincial water resources program." The premier said there will be no development permitted in new wilderness areas establish- ed by the province. Mr. Strom also scoffed at a published statement by Mr. Gray that the government has ?23 million left over in its high- ways budget. "This money was provided for a five-year the premier said. "If the Conserva- tives had been in power, they would have spent it all in one year, leaving the municipalities short." The Social Credit leader also look a crack al (he Ne'.v De- mocratic Party. He said the NDP would like (o see a Con- servative government elected in Alherta because (hey know the Conservatives are not a party of the people hut a parly of special privilege and special interests, And Ihe socialists (NDP) would have a field day against such a party. As long as there is a strong Social Credit party in Alberta the ordinary people of this province aren't going lo vole for the socialists." Opposition charges that So- cial Credit has done nothing lo promote secondary industry are untrue, Mr. Strom said, pointing to southwestern Al- berta as an example. "Because of irrigation, you have been able ID develop number of industries related to food processing, such as vegi fable processing and packing, and the sugar beet industry." He said the Alberta Commer- j cial Corporation has made 23 J loans worth 54 million to south- ern Albcrla, "part of our policy 1 of providing financial incen- tives for the establishment and expansion of industries in smaller centres." Tourism in this area has been aided by the government's active tourist promotion cam- paign, he said. Mr. Strom reiterated he is opposed lo the export of water from Alberta. In regard to irri- gation, which has "enabled ag- riculture in this region to di- Mr. S'trom said Social Credit can take much of the credit "for the current water use policies which are univer- sally praised here in southern Alberta. Social Credit favors preser- vation of the fumily farm, the premier said, and to this end proposes lo increase the funds of the Alberta Farm Purchase Board to from S21 million, and to rebate 25 per cent of crop insurance premiums. On other matters. Mr. Strom: Promised to collect as much oil and gas royally as the market will bear. Stated his government will construct additional senior citi- zens' lodges where a need exists. Promised a better life for city dwellers, noting the gov- ernment has set up a task force on urbanization lo chart the fu- turn needs of cities. Proposed lo make funds available lo help preserve Inc language, hisloiy and heritage of Ihc piovincc's ethnic group1' Noted the decision lo lo- cate a university in IjethbridRe was made by the government "in response lo strong local in- volvement." Promised (he will sponsor a new scries of ed- ucation programs for pre- school children to be broadcast over both educational and com- mercial television stations. Mr. Strom charged that (he Calgary Herald, Edmonton Journal and CBC are all ac- tively or (aclily opposing Social Credit in this election, adding that any government opposed by these three institutions "certainly can't Ire all that bad."

"Their prime purpose was lo Christianize us heathens, not! educate us, because we were considered uneducable. They were also a deliberate attempt lo destroy the Indian by de- stroying [he family." Henry Potts, the Pcigan band manager and one of the mom- ing panelists, agreed and de- scribed the residential schools as "nothing but prisons." Ho said the best thing that could have been done wouJd have been to "shut the schools down and put the kids at home where Ihev belong."
