IB _ J ,x; fr> lif., polica depart-treat that started ential streets in the cars painted (CP) A' Federal Court judge says the Canadian Radio-Television Commission is ituully powerless lo prevent TV networks and stations from airing programs lhat are racist in poor Ia5te "or offensive to a substantial number of viewers. Mr. Justice Allison Walsh made the comment in a 29-page written judgment in which he dismissed a bid by four Indian organizations for a court order that would have forced the CliTC to hold a public inquiry into the CTV network's airing of a program entitled The Taming of the Canadian West. However, the judge noted Ilia! the Indian groups "may well lave a legitimate grievance although I am not so for which the law as presently constituted appears to provide no adequate redress." The action was launched by the National Indian Brotherhood, the Indian-Eskimo Association of Canada, the Union of Ontario Indians and the Canadian Indian Centre of Toronto. BASED ON BOOK Mr. Justice Walsh said in his judgment that the Indians regarded the program as "blan-tantly racist, historically inaccurate arid slanderous to the Indian race and culture" in its version of the settling of the Canadian West prior to the turn of the century. But he said lie would not comment on the content of the program, based on a book by Toronto writer Frank Rasky, because he had not seen the show and the nature of the program itself was not an issue before him. Mr. Justice Walsh also said it was not his place to comment on whether the CRTC should be given more powers to control the subject matter in programs broadcast by tire TV stations and networks it licenses. "This is a decision which Parliament alone can make, but at present, it is evident that given to it in this field are very limited and ineffective." Instead, the undertook a painstaking examination of the way in which the CRTC and CTV handled the Indian protests. Hj found that the network had "no intention whatsoever of making major alterations or withdrawing the film" and consistently refused to discuss it with Indian leaders. The CRTC treated the Indians "rather harshly" and would only examine their complaints against CTV and the special "after long delays and frustrating obstructions." INQUIRY REFUSED In the end, the commission refused to order network executives to get together with the Indians, declined to halt re-broadeast of the show and turned down an In- the program with the CRTC on ian request for a public inquiry June 22, 1370. it took the com-mto the entire matter. mission eight months to corn-Mr. Justice Walsh noted thai examination of the dis-although the Indians filed their Aral tta ll took no actlon nitial written complaint against whatsoever.
