Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta _______________, Soturdoy, Dr.ember U. 1971 THE LETHBRIDGH HERAIB 9 Lougheed stresses need for cultural strength PETER LOUGIJEED 50-mile limit PARIS (toiler) Iceland announced Thursday night it will extend its fishing limits to 50 miles from 12 effective Sept. 1, 1972. SHOE REPAIRS BEST FAST -fc CHEAP SHOE HOSPITAL 311 llth Slreet South EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta government endorses the concept of multi cul'luralism and is willing to sit down with ethnic groups to develop speci- fic programs, says Premier Peter Lougheed. The importance of cultural strength in Alberta is an area the government is prepared to discuss with the various groups, he told the first joint meeting ever held of the Professional and Businessmen's Club of Edmon- ton, the Scandinavian Busi- nessmen's Club of Edmonton, and the German Canadian Business and Professional As- sociation of Alberta. One questioner told the pre- mier after the speech government could have given more of a committment on what the province intends lo do for ethnic groups. Mr. Lougheed wondered "whether it was reasonable" to expect an administration that has been in office only three AGRICULTURAL FIELD REPRESENTATIVES Required For East Central Alberta and Southern Alberta Agricultural experience necessary.

"You know the general atti- tude expressed. The concept iias been accepted. I believe Jie government should be en- titled lo work out the concept in terms of specifics." A conference with cultural groups is being arranged by the province in June. TIGHT-MONEY PERIOD In his speech the premier warned that Alberta is facing a tight financial period and "significant belt-tightening.'' "It is the responsibility of all citizens to recognize that money isn't just flowing in. We've got to establish priori- lies and establish significant belt tightening. "We want to do it in a way that is not unfair, but that is Ihe fact of Mr. Lougheed said. There might be cries of an- guish" as decisions are made on programs and it's not going to be a popularity contest. The premier said there is a moratorium on public comment provincial treasurer Gordon Miniely because the govern- ment is going into the budget- preparation period and botb the premier and provincial treasurer do not think it appro- priate that statements be made until the budget is brought down. The Conservative g o vern- ment has confirmed a set of priorities involving the elderly, handicapped children, mental health, and stability of smaller farmers, he said. OTHER POINTS Other points made by the premier: national transportation pol- icy that discriminates against Alberta is jeopardizing the proper development of this part of Canada. expects a "real battle" in tlie years ahead about for- eign investment in Canada and Alberta's welcoming of foreign investment here. hopes the metropolitan area of the province will not take strong issue as the government enters a program to build tip smaller centres and balance the provincial economy. is to be given to small business which perhaps will make some businessmen "uncomfortable, hut I hope others say 'it's about time.'" necessity for last-min- ute winter employment pro- grams has to stop. "We have to have programs ready in May and June, on the shelf and ready to go." the government appears to take longer than it should to make decisions, a reason will be that the people affected are given the opportunity lo have their say.
