Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, December 17, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Dateline Alberta Teacher shot in back WABASCA (CP) RCMP at Slave Lake are investigating a shooting inci- dent in which a school teacher in this community was shot in the back. Police have taken a juvenile into custody as a result of the incident in which the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ken Kelly was broken into and Mr Kelly shot. He was taken to hospital in Edmonton where he is reported to be in critical con- dition. Wabasca is about 170 miles north of Edmonton. SHOT-BOTH-SIDES Alderman says no conflict EDMONTON (CP) City alderman Robert Matheson has confirmed that he is direc- tor of Community Property Research Ltd., an Edmonton firm which is doing a study of CNR downtown property. Mr. Matheson said there would be no conflict of interest with his duties as alderman, and that he would abstain from voting if any of the firm's business come before council. The firm was hired by CN to do a feasibility study on 90 acres of land it owns between 97th and 116th streets and 104th and 105th avenues. Ungrateful dog story CALGARY (CP) A friend in need is a friend in deed, but the man's best friend didn't seem to appreciate it. Fireman E. F. Kaughman was called to put out a fire at a garage and while he was do- ing it the owner's dog bit him. The fire was put out and the owner apoligized for his un- grateful dog, but the fireman had to spend one day in hospital. Bird watch figures down EDMONTON (CP) Warm temperatures have reduced the Edmonton Bird Club's 74th annual Christmas bird watch by Bob Lister, club spokesman says. Mr. Lister said 43 club members counted birds, a drop of from last year, in a 15 mile radius of univer- sity farm on the city's southern limits. He attributed the decrease to warm weather which is keeping the birds from migrating from the countryside into urban areas There were 39 species observed with the most numerous being the Bohemian waxwing. As well, watchers saw 109 mallards, 54 common goldeneye ducks, 15 pheasants, 20 Hungarian partridge, five ruffed grouse and two sharp tailed grouse. Ottawa denounced as regime' CALGARY (CP) Telephones Minister Roy Farran says Alberta will make "no more concessions, no more welfare for the fat cats down east" and the price of oil will be raised to "closer to fair market value Mr Farran, who was renominated by acclamation to represent the Progressive Conservative party for Calgary North Hill in the next provincial election also denounced the Trudeau ad- ministration as an "imperialist government." "It is this imperialist at- titude that we he told a packed nomination meeting. He said Confederation could not survive ''if the homesteading provinces are to continue to be regarded as colonies to exploit for the benefit of central Canada." Mr. Farran said in face of Ottawa's failure to resolve the resource taxation battle, Alberta has, through the petroleum exploration plan announced by Premier Peter Lougheed last week, come to save the oil industry with money from the provincial treasury MCDOUGALL Alberta tax concessions criticized EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government is dis- criminatory in its treatment of provincial cow calf producers when compared with the generous royalty and tax concessions extended to the oil industry last week, Bill Dascavich, regional co or- dinator of the National Farmers Union said Monday. "When farmers who are engaged in the production of regional or renewable natural resources and who generate over 60 per cent of Alberta's economic activity, get into economic difficulty through no fault of their own, they get interest free he said in a prepared statement. "But when profits in the oil industry, which is exploiting a non renewable resource are trimmed, they get lavish financial aid. "We have just witnessed a carefully orchestrated series of manoeuvres designed to condition the public into accepting a million giveaway from Alberta's treasury NOTICE!

Time (Deadline for Picture Taking is December 23rd) South chiefs air Indian problems CALGARY (CP) The chiefs of five southern Alberta Indian tribes meet to- day with Indian Affairs Minister Judd Buchanan in Ot- tawa to discuss the social and cultural problems facing urban Indians in Canda. The meeting will be con- ducted in the shadow of a re- port prepared by a committee of academics and civil liber- tarians which describes the attitudes in the department's Calgary office as "racist" and which says the department treats Indians as "inferior hu- man beings." The chiefs are led by John Snow of the Stony Indians. Other chiefs are Gordon Crowchild of the Sarcees, Frank Kaquitts of the Stonys, Leo Pretty Young Man of the Blackfeet, Maurice McDougall of the Peigans, and Jim Shot-Both-Sides of the Bloods. They volunteered to carry the problems of urban Indians to the minister after 25 young, militant Indians occupied the department of Indian affairs office here for 54 hours late last month. Mr. Buchanan refused to meet with the demonstrators, who were led by Ed Burn- stick, Canadian director of the American Indian Movement but said he would talk to the elected chiefs if they came to Ottawa. The department laid mis- chief charges against Mr. Burnstick and Roy Littlechief, president of the Calgary Urban Treaty Indian Alliance (CUTIA) last week. It is the first time charges have been laid in connection with militant action by In- dians in Canada. The demonstrators claimed that they were denied their treaty rights when they mov- ed to the city. They said the department was trying to make them a provincial responsibility. Mr. Buchanan said in an in- terview here that it is his opin- ion that federal responsibility for Indians ends when they leave the reserve. The report on the Calgary Indian affairs office was com- pleted by the request of urban Indians, but was not in direct response to the occupation, said Maureen Lashuk of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association. In addition to its racist charges, the report condemns practices employed by Indian affairs which it says conflicts with the accepted standards of social work. The report was compiled from interviews with people associated with the Calgary office, either through employ- ment or as clients. The report quotes three of four Indian employees of the office who have lost their jobs in the last six months as claiming they were either dis- criminated against because they are Indians or that the general atmosphere in the of- fice was unacceptable. The fourth employee was described in a confidential department report obtained by researchers as "typical of the Indian viewpoint... She is critical." "What is happening in the Calgary office is intolerable by any human says ,the report. "Power is being abused by civil servants and even worse, the targets of these abuses are members of one of the least powerful groups in our society." The report recommends sweeping policy changes for the Calgary office, but adds "the Calgary district office is but one example of similar hardline and unreasonable policies emanating from the minister of Indian affairs." The two defendants in what will be the first legal case in Canada arising directly from Indian militancy say the case will be fought as a political trial when it comes before the courts Jan. 17. Tough new egg agency controls advocated OTTAWA (CP) Tighter federal supervision of the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency rigid penalties for farmers who produce more eggs than they are allowed and suggestions that surplus eggs be sold cheaply to the poor are among recommendations made Mon- day by the special Commons egg committee. In its report to the House, the 14-member committee proposed four and a half-dozen measures aimed at tightening the country's egg marketing system. But it shied away from rec- ommending the abolition of CEMA or a regulated egg marketing system, saying it, like the 53 witnesses to appear at hearings during the last two months, felt the 18-month-old agency should be given a chance to work. The committee said two federally-appointed members should be added to CEMA's 10-member board of directors to counter the "parochial interests" of the provincially- oriented men now on the board. All provinces had not lived up to egg marketing agreements, the committee said, and made it "difficult, if not impossible" for CEMA to carry out its work All four Conservative MPs on the committee took excep- tion to the report, arguing in a supplementary statement that Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan should be held accoun- table for much of the blame in the marketing mix-up that led this fall to the destruction of 28 million eggs. 300 SUNGLASSES to choose from AVAILABLE IN YOLfR RX 16th' 75 This Christmas, live to Lottery v. n 'A.
