Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Decombor 26, 1970 You Ask Me.. By Ric Swihart WE need one more statutory holiday Stamp Out Drugi Pushers Day! Sitting back in an easy chair tiiinking about the (lifts and fine turkey dinner of Christmas will likely bo the style of most Canaciiajis today. But how about the hundreds who will have made the holiday a time for their first experience with gift from some "nice, iriem'uy drug pusher." I use the term drugs to mean all those banned by the Criminal Cede of Canada. Tire drag pusher who really bums me. is the professional (the lowest type of human being in my who makes his living exploiting youth. If you look objectively, all who "give some stuff" to a friend to try" or "to tide lim over a rough are because of a vicious circle caused by peer- group pressures. These pressures (if I don't take dmgs what will my friends think of are likely keeping a lot of professional pushers in business with fat wallets. The recent move by the RCMP to round up some 80 known drag pushers was one of the first concrete moves in Alberta aimed at the real professional pusher. The average age of these persons was 23 years. Recently I was stopped by an RCMP road block. They happened to be looking for a bank robber. Their attitude in approaching me showed traits of firm- ness to duty. If this "direct" approach offends some, they had better decide if they really want protection. Those on the edge of crime, if not directly involved feel differently when apprehended by call them "pigs." It's strange what fear can do to one's mind. Maybe they call reporters pigs too, whenever one writes In defence of the law or against drugs. They likely call their friends pigs too if they happen to disagree with their plea for total freedom. Or what the hell! Maybe I'm all wet. Look at the nice job opportunities increasing drug use is creating. Jobs in clin- ics, hospitals, counselling services, for those who have blown their the moment, or forever. But job opportunities, even with the current unemploy- ment situation, don't save young people from hitting the skids. The holiday dinner might not sit so well and the easy chair not be quite so easy when you take a quick glance at the dastardly work of the drug pusher. Maybe it's time to jump out of ease and into an active move against those who would grow fat and drive a big car bought with the minds of some kids on your block.

If you drink, don't drive, you might save my life The Alberta Motor Associa- tion holiday campaign "police yourself" has been strongly en- dorsed by the LcUibridge de- tachment of the RCMF. The campaign is aimed at re- ducing the number of alcohol related traffic accidents, in- juries and deaths which inevi- tably occur during the Christ- mas and New Year's season. Sergeant R. A. Sales, Leth bridge RCMP traffic supervi- sor, said the campaign theme means the motorists who have been drinking should take it upon themselves to ensure that they are fully capable of driving safely before getting behind the wheel. Sgt. Sales said RCMP patrols are handing out blocd-alcohol charts to the motoring public to inform them of the effects of alcohol on one's driving abil- ity, the percentages of alcohol in the blood by the number of drinks consumed, and the Criminal Code legislation deal- ing with impaired driving. "It is hoped this will assist in reducing the number of drinking drivers on the roads during December when alcohol involvement is so. predomi- said Sgt. Sales.
