Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, December 13, 1971 THE LCTHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Bitter debate at Regina Shopping issue goes to vote REG1MV (CP) Residents will vote next Wednesday on aji issue bitterly debated since last August: whether Hegina will re- main one of the last major cit- ies in Canada where stores are open only five days a week. Stores now open Tuesday to Saturday and a referendum will decide whether the stores will be allowed to open Mondays. A bare majority will decide Hie issue but city council has re- served the right to veto the re- sult if the vote is close. The debate started when a brief asking for six days of shopping was submitted to city council in August by the three major department stores: The Bay, Eaton's and the Robert J. Simpson Co. Ltd. Although The Leader-Post has maintained a neutral edilorial policy on the issue, it did say that there was an uproar before stores were permitted to remain open until 9 p.m. the only night of the week they did so. Many dire things were piedicled if the stores stayed the newspaper said. "Has anything dire happened in Edmonton, Calgary and Win- nipeg? These cities had night shopping long before the system started here. Are they yet an- other step ahead of us by elimi- nating the store-hour Most of the opposition has come from labor groups and tile operators of small stores. The Saskatchewan Federation of Labor firmly oppose the six-day store spokes- man Gerry Edwards said Thursday, adding the federa- tion's voice In those of several major unions, including the Oil. Chen-jcal and Atomic Workers Union. "It would adversely affect the lives and welfare of retail and associated employees." Mr. Ed- wards said.

EXTENSION APPROVED The Quebec government passed legislation last June ex- tending the province's medicare plan to cover free dental care for children up to seven years old and free drugs for social welfare recipients and old age pensioners. At the time it was hoped to have both extensions operating Jan. 1. However. Quebec assumed Ot- tawa would share with the prov- ince, under the I960 Canada As- sistance Plan, the cost of the free drug scheme. When the legislation was passed, he told a news confer- ence, the provincial government assumed that costs would be shared with the federal govern- ment under public assistance legislation passed in 1986. But Ottawa replied negatively "a few days ago'' to the idea of sharing co'sts in this way, Mr. (Xstonguay said, and it was im- possible to foresee when the free drug plan could be put inlxi effect. with oilier employees in the community, to have two consec utivc days a week. "The six-day opening, by ex- tending hours and contributing to the hiring of more part-tim- ers in an industry that already has a disproportionately high number, would further under- earnings and conditions al- ready less than average." SMALL FIRMS Small merchants are worried they may be forced out of busi- ness. "What is good for big busi- ness is not necessarily good for little business." said JeiTOld Brodie, president of West of England Dress Goods Ltd. and an outspoken opponent of the proposal. "The institution of night shop- ping proved conclusively that the extra hours are an extra fin- ancial and physical burden on small stores and the only stores to benefit by it are the larger chain Mr. Bro- dic said in a brief to city coun- cil. Mayor Harry Walker, who ad- mits he has never been optimis- tic about a compromise between th big and smal. operators, says he believes the city should not regulate store fours.
