Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta ___ Thucldoy, Dccembtr 9, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HtRAlD 5 First urban development awards come to Alberta OTTAWA (CP) Plazas, malls and parks in 12 Canadian cities received an official stamp of excellence Wednesday with presentation of the first series of Vincent Massey awards for urban development. The awards went to projects in Saint John, N.B., Quchcc City, Trois-Rivieres, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Saskatoon, Ed- monton, Calgary, Vancouver, North Vancouver and Victoria. Six others were given special mention. Humphrey Carver, Ottawa town planner who headed the five-member jury, said the awards prove that Canadians can create "great beauty in the urban wilderness" and may yet win "the battle against the com- puter and ttie systems ana- lysts." The development of a square in Trois-Rivieres was described as "perhaps the outstanding ex- ample of a central place." Otta- wa's Sparks Street Mall is "the classic example" of a pedes- trian place. The jury said citizen groups In lower Weslmount, Montreal, displayed great ability in gath- ering people to resist the intru- sions of a freeway and the threat of high-rise building density. "And, as an example of the positive outcome of their well- Jed efforts, a small neighbor- hood play park has been devel- oped on an under-used site, to satisfy the needs of all age groups." TORONTO HONORED The Toronto city hall square slso won an award. Toronto "could never have claimed place among the great cities of the world until it possessed a public gathering place of such noble scale." The winner for Saint John was Rockwood Park, a large re- servation of wooded, rolling public land left in its natural state for public use. The Escalier Petit Champlain and Rue Saint Louis in Quebec City was also a winner. The jury said both the street and staircase are restorations that have recaptured the character of the historic city and imagina- tively added the art of the con- temporary designer. The jury commended Saska- toon for its new Midtown Plaza which replaced a central rail- way station and tracks. It in- cludes a handsome shopping centre with an enclosed mall, a large office tower, a community theatre over a convention centre and aji underground car-park. Edmonton's M a y f a i r Park also took top marks. The jury said the city has been far- sighted in acquiring the upper banks of the river valley that divides it and in developing a park system in tlie valley itself. Calgary was praised for initi- ating "a brilliantly simple solu- tion to the problems of (raffic conflict" in developing its "Plus 15" system. Eventually it is to provide pedestrian passageways 15 feet above street level among buildings throughout the city core. VANCOUVER NAMED The Bloedel in Vancouver was selected by the jury as a place "of rich and WORLD OF SHOES s 317A SIXTH STREET SOUTH marvellous beauty." The sc-rvatory is a steel arid glass hemisphere on I he .summit of a bill surrounded by suburban Vancouver. North Vancouver's recreation centre with its meeting places, swimming pool, arena and thea- tre, served many thousands of people each week, was com- mended for its focus of com- munity life. The jury also found Bastion Square in Victoria to be an "al- together charming place." The square had been made into a small piazza in the middle of downtown Victoria through the redevelopment of a blighted area near the waterfront. Special mentions were given the Rideau Canal wharf in Ot- tawa, Hamilton's Dundurn Cas- tle, Winnipeg's Assiniboine Park- Zoo and Metro Plaza, the Uni- versity of Saskatchewan cam- pus in Saskatoon, and the Japa- nese garden in Lethbridge, Alta. The Vincent Massey awards, co-sponsored by the Canada Council and the Massey Founda- tion, were selected from 33 sub- missions. Other jury members were Michel Barcelo. a Montreal town planner: Sidney Buckv.'old. mayor of Saskatoon, Gerald Fortin, a Quebec City sociolo- gist, and Doris Shadbolt, senior curator of the Vancouver Art Gallerv.

The association, a three-year- old group affiliated wiih con- sumer advocate Kalplt Nader, says "last-year" models arc le- gally represented as cm-rent model-year ears and sold at the usually-higher price of new models. The customers, says the asso- ciation, "only discover they have been tricked when they re- turn to their dealer the next year and discover that their car lias been depreciated by two p'r rather than the expected one OTTAWA (CP) The health department's lood and drag di- rectorate is preparing a recom- mendation to doctors on the use of the bacteria-destroying chem- ical, hexachlorophene.
