Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta SO - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, December 9, 1970 Status report backed By THE CANADIAN PRESS Reaction on the Prairie to recommendations in the royal commission on the status of women has been mainly favorable, although some said the questions of equal rights are still up to women themselves. Alberta premier Harry Strom said his government always has been prepared to put women on boards and commissions but requests for names of suitable women haven't always been successful. Opposition leader Peter Lougheed said a Progressive Conservative government in Alberta would increase significantly the number of women on commissions, boards and agencies to reflect the equal status moi-e adequately. NO EQUAL PAY Labor Minister Ray Reierson said Alberta has legislation requiring equal pay for equal work "but it would be foolish of me to suggest we have equal pay when we don't." He agreed with recommendations in the report, released Monday, that the concept of skill, effort and responsibility be used in determining what is equal work. i Helen Hnatyshyn, president of the National Council of Women, said in Saskatoon that the important thing is to take steps to see that the recommendations are implemented. The proposals contained in the report have been urged on governments for years, she said. In Regina, Reta Moran, president of the Saskatchewan Council of Women, endorsed the recommendations for more, training for the unskilled and for better tax arrangements for women. It is better for the government to pay mothers to care for children at home than to place children in a centre with strangers, she said. "The most important thing in the world is for a mother to care for her own children," she said. JOBLESS INSURANCE Arecommendation that women on maternity leave should be able to collect unemployment insurance was supported by Roy Jahma of Edmonton, president of the Alberta Federation of Labor. Stan Daniels of Edmonton, president of the Metis Association of Alberta, welcomed recommendations that call for manage ment training programs and greater opportunities in the teaching profession for native women. Linda Morrill of the Calgary Abortion Information Centre agreed with recommendations on abortion, but said her own solution would be to repeal all abortion laws. "It should be a matter between the doctor and the patient - like any other medical matter." The commission recommended abortion on demand for any woman pregnant for 12 weeks or less and abortion on request for a woman more than 12 weeks pregnant if the pregnancy would endanger her physical or mental health or if there was a risk that the child would be born handicapped. ATTITUDE CHANGE Irene MacGregor, director of the government-run Alberta Women's Cultural and Information Bureau, said she welcomed the recommendations but doubted if more than a handful of them would ever become law. "But I think a change in attitudes by both men and worr.-n is far more basic to improving the status of women," she said. "You can legislate anything you want to, but you can't legislate an attitude. Both men's and women's attitudes must change. Men aren't the boogey-men." Mary Van Stolk of Edmonton, author, television producer and organizer of an Edmonton anti-pollution group, said the recommendations were important and must be implemented. "These same recommendations have been creeping up for years and that should be an indication that they are a glaring need," she said. "The report has nothing to do with how you feel about women; it's a matter of running a good democratic ship." DEATH FOR CROAT BELGRADE (Reuter) - A man described as belonging to an emigre right-wing Croatian terrorist organization was sentenced to death here Monday after a 2'2-month retrial on charges of causing two bomb explosions in Belgrade two years a30 which killed one person and injured nearly 100. A first death sentence against Mil-jenko Hrkac, said to be an Us-tashi terrorist, was annulled earlier this year after he said he had new evidence which would prove his innocence. � treasure House if it ft* **** ,1' - r 0 O o o  t 3t 'If IJ1 r J *4 X m 'Roxborc' Permanent Press Pyjamas What better gift than a pair of comfortable P.J.'s.
