Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta ;12 -- THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD - Friday, Fcbiuary 2, 1973 Routine "monotonous" Life boring for Canadian troops in Cyprus .NICOSIA (CPi - As tensions I'in/k Cyprus amid the threat of civil war. most Canadian troops in the United Nations peacekeeping mission watch sharply but remain largely unimpressed. ''Life gets monotonous." says Pte. Dave Burtch of Kingston, Out., member of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry. "It's the same stuff, day after day." "It's not bad really," adds Cpl, Doug Becker of Winnipeg, "out it's hard to find anything to do to fill our free time." The 575 members of the Prin- ; cess Patricia's 2nd Battalion � patrol one cf the most dan-i gerous confrontation lines be-! tweeu Greek-and Turkish-Cy-| priois. ; Divided by a narrow strip in I the hands of Canadian troops, the city has the largest concentration of people on the island as well as the heaviest rival fortifications. CHISIS AMONG GREEKS But the current tensions arise not so much from old feuds between those who look to Greece and those who look to Turkey for national affiliation as from Greek-Cypriots themselves. The risk of fratricidal strife among the 500.000 Greek-Cypriots is linked to the recent activities of Gen. George Grivas and his armed groups who oppose the long-reigning Cyprus preside n t, Archbishop Makarios. The 100.000 Turkish-Cy-priots are largely uninvolved. But during the last two weeks there has been a steady increase in bomb attacks against the homes of senior Greek-Cy- priot police officers, among other incidents. President Makarios has charged the terrorist campaign has been launched by Grivas to block the February presidential ejections in which the 59-year-okl Makarios is seeking re-election. He has held office since Cyprus became a republic in 1900. The 3,000-man UN military Change in legal system needed to help Indians SUCKER CREEK, Alta. (CP) - Indians will "end up on the hort end of the stick' until the Canadian legal system is changed, Harold Cardinal, president of the Indian Association of Alberta, said Wednesday. Mr. Cardinal, at his home reserve, said a Supreme Court of Canada ruling that the Nishga Indians do not have aboriginal rights over the land they have occupied hi northern British Columbia's Nass Valley may have settled that issue as far as the legal system, but not as far as the Indians are concerned. "I didn't see how we, the Indians, or other Canadians can let this immoral decision stand," he said. "Its a hell of an important decision, and a hell of a setback." i The Canadian legal system is not designed to handle Indian rights, "be they treaty or aboriginal." Mr. Cardinal said. "Until the legal system is changed to handle these types of claims and settlements for Indians, we will always end up on' the short end of the stick.' The Nishga tribe asked the court only to declare that their aboriginal title to the land had never been extinguished since they had not signed a treaty. The court decision supports the federal government statement that it was not prepared to recognize aboriginal land claims. peacekeeping force, supplied by seven countries including Canada, is reported to have concluded that if trouble breaks out among the Greek-Cypriots, there is little the UN troops can do. except increase vigilance to ensure that the violence doesn't spread to the Turkish communities. 'We are more alert," said one UN officer who asked not to be identified. "It is easier for trouble to happen but otherwise we are carrying on with, our routine duties as always." Capt. Gary 'Whiting of Eston, Sask., says that if anything, "there has been a remarkable decrease in the number of incidents reported." "For example, in the Canadian contingents sector alone, these have shrunk from 68 last October to only eight in December-all of a minor nature."
