Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tliunday, December 17, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Alberta may lower age of majority to 18 EDMONTON (CP) Attor- ney General Edgar Gerhart says the age of majority in Al- berta may be lowered to 18 from 21 to make youths "adults in every sense of the In addition, the province may raise the age of minors to 18 Grande Prairie editor named GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) William Scott, 31, has been ap- pointed editor of The Daily Herald Tribune, publisher Ger- ald Duncan announced today.

"1 don't Ihink we've been he said in commenting on the age of majority. "We impose adult sanctions on minors in the courts but if we do tin's then it must be ap- plied generally in all aspects." MORAL ISSUES He said that only moral is- sues should be considered in declaring an 18-year-old girl, for example, a juvenile delin- quent. "As it stands now, such a girl is a juvenile delinquent if she goes through a stop sign." In Alberta a boy is no longer a minor at age 16 but a girl is considered to be a minor until age 18, Mr. Gerhart said. He cited better communica- tions as the reason why "an 38-year-old is far ahead of where I was at that age." "Children arc more aware of rights and privileges today." He said there should be "no reservations" on the age of majority. "They should be adults under the law in all includ- ing eligibility for political of- fice and responsibility for con- tracts. Mr. Gerhart said 18 would be a good age to choose because it may fall in line with pro- posed federal changes and it is already the age at which youths are eligible for military ser- However, when the proposal goes before the legislature, a choice will be offered between 18 or 19, he said. Drug offences under the nar- cotics control act currently fall under federal jurisdiction. "We've been happy until now to leave it there because it is an expensive field requiring trained men." 'It is essentially punitive in nature and the feeling among provincial governments now is to see if the act is federal leg- islation." EDGAR GERHART Uninspected meal shocks consumers CALGAKY (CP) Cpnsum ers "are shocked" that 20 cent of meat sold in Alberta is uninspected, says A. J. E Child, president of Burns Foods Ltd. and of the Meat Packers Council of Canada. He said housewives he has talked to were under the im- pression that the law providec inspection for all meat prod- ucts. A brief to the provincial cabi- net by the Alberta Veterinary Association said that 20 per cent of meat consumed in the province is not inspected for disease.

STKEET A 3rd AVENUE, IITHBRIDGF, ALBERTA The brief, which said some slaughterhouses were dilapidat- ed and did not meet the mosl rudimentary standards for pro- duction of safe, food, recom- mended that the Alberta gov- ernment set up an inspection program for the unsanitary slaughterhouses. Mr. Child said only meat packing plants that ship across provincial borders must be fed- erally inspected and there is no inspection of country slaughter- houses or of many small sau- sage manufacturers. "There is a tremendous gap between conditions in plants which have federal inspection, as do all members of the Meat Packers Council, and those which do not. "In our plants there is con tinuous examination of all oper- ations. No diseased meat Can escape detection or get into a manufactured product. "No employee with an infec- tion is allowed to go to work. All equipment and techniques must conform to high standards of bacteria control." Mr. Child said most retailers protect the public by refusing a handle fresh meat and sau- sage products from uninspected premises. "The housewife can protect lerself by insisting on feder- ally-inspected meat."
