Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta He's doing well Two-year-old Jason Cowden of goes over a scrapbook with his Mrs. Hazel Underdahl. The book contains many memories of his attack last July by a mountain lion near Rapid City which was stabbed to death by his grandmother. The lion was at an animal compound-tourist attraction. i Inventors may get help Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Financial Con- sultant Robert Grasley is crisscrossing looking tor frustrated Canadian inven- tors who can't find Canadian linancial support to turn their ideas into money-making successes. Under a contract with the federal science ministry. Mr. Grasley is also visiting financial centres across the to deter- mine how much need there-is lor money for inventors and other entrepreneurs to launch new companies and how much is available outside of Toronto and Montreal. This for he is visiting cities out west. In preliminary the science ministry has found that most Canadian financial institutions concentrate their financial support in the high- high technology field on established companies or or. individuals who have already proven themselves. most of the venture what little there seems to be concentrated in Toronto and Montreal. One science ministry of- ficial explained that the government is interested in developing new ways of induc- ing financial institutions and even private investors to make money available for building prototypes of new inventions and help new com- panies start-up. In recent many Cana- dian inventors have complain- ed about the difficulty of getting Canadian financing for developing and marketing new ideas. There have been books written on the number of major inventions that have Keep Christ in Christmas Inserted by Block Bros. Realty Ltd. been lost to Canada and have later been picked up in the U.S. and transformed into successes. At there is really no formal federal program of grants for funding new in- ventors or for starting up new ventures. Mr. Grasley believes that Canadians with good ideas have problems finding financ- ing in Canada and he is in the process of documenting the actual problems. Others have suggested a major problem is the conservative nature of the Canadian financial com- munity. In many areas of high-tech- the 4sks are often very high for failure. But success often brings high returns. Mr. Grasley also believes that inventors are concerned about prestige and that an an- nual inventors award might be the answer to providing domestic inventors with recognition and the incentive to remain here.

But the Teamsters will not be brought into the 1.8-million- member congress until a few are cleared up. it was decided Wednesday at a CLC ex- ecutive council meeting. the congress also gave support to a bid for recognition as an affiliate to a provisional council of Cana- dian brewery workers who resisted a merger with the teamsters earlier this fall. The United Stales parent union voted to merge with the teamsters but about 49 of 55 Canadian locals refused. The Canadian brewers will remain an affiliate of the con- with CLC recognition of the union as custodian of the rights and privileges of the merged parent union. After the the team- sters began legal action lu take over .assets of the union. A congress spokesman said there was opposition as such to the affiliation of the but there are some issues to be ISSUES EXIST Some of these issues are ju- Teamsters were expelled from the con- gress 10 years ago after being involved in jurisdictional dis- putes with two railway un- while other differences centre on policy. The congress is supporting the United Farm Workers in the California grape and let- tuce boycotts which arose from a dispute between the Teamsters and the farmworkers. The Teamsters' efforts to take over the 11.000 Canadian brewers also might prove a tough issue to overcome as the bigger union asks for congress affiliation. The council meeting was de- scribed as a one but there was generally strong support for the teamsters' readmission. the congress spokesman added. The 49 locals in the brewers' provisional council have 8.500 members. Another representing 700 grain handlers in B.C.. is discussing affiliation with the Inter- national Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union. The grain handlers have been provided by the congress with a temporary direct charter. The council also expressed support for the present unem- ployment insurance terming it of the finest in the and issued a state- ment urging the government to stand firm against opposi- tion attacks on the issue. Alberta MPs raise howls of protest By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau caused a wild outburst in the House of Commons Wednesday with Al- berta members of Parliament accusing him of calling Alber- ta ns bigots.' Coming just days after Mr. Trudeau' scathing attack in Vancouver on Alberta Premier Peter the prime minister's comments brought howls of protest from the Rocky Mountain province's MPs and caused Harvie Andre to walk out of the Commons' chamber in dis- gust. Mr. Trudeau later denied he had called anyone a but said the people of Quebec would go without a single gallon of Alberta oil if instead they could have the support of Alberta for the federal government's bilingualism policies. The eruption started when Nova Scotia MP Elmer MacKay voiced concern about rising prices of offshore oil for Eastern Canada and wondered how much Canada was willing to pay if the price kept rising. We cannot determine the price of oil at which Venezuela decides to send the oil to us. The only remedy we or the provinces have if we do not want to pay that price is not to take the said Mr. Trudeau. After what might have been taken as a sarcastic comment against Alberta by Energy Minister Donald Alberta MP Ged Baldwin Peace told the Commons that he. like most people in Alberta was more concerned about doing something for the people of Eastern Canada than is the prime minister who is willing to let them Shot back an obviously agi- tated Mr. happy that the Peace River member is indicating the Alberta members are interested in assuring a supply of oil to Quebec and Eastern I wonder if he could assure the support of the Alberta members for the government's bilingual A burst of heckling erupted and then died down as Speaker Lucien Lamoureux recognized another MP for but soon after Doug Roche Edmonton rose on a question of privilege and said he would have spoken out earlier but he didn't want to lose his temper because of the obvious by the prime minister. prime minister's re- marks tarnished the Alberta members of Parliament as bi- gots on the bilingual issue. I deliberately let a few moments go by in order to cool my emotions on hearing that is out- rageous slander on Alberta members of Parliament who are second to none in their de- sire for true national the Edmonton MP. Continued Mr. prime minister is trying to isolate Alberta as the villain in the energy crisis in order to cover up his own lack of policy and programming in securing energy supplies. I am hesitant to dignify the slander that we have suffered in Alberta by a question of privilege but we are not going to sit quietly by in this chamber and be called bigots by the prime minister.
