Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Press council first of its kind MONTREAL (CP) A con- stitution for a Quebec press council, possibly the first of its kind in North America, has been ratified by four news or- ganizations representing more than 700 reporters. Quebec Federation of Profes- sional Journalists; Pierre Dan- sereau of the Quebec Daily Newspapers Association; Fer- Berthiaume of tte Cana- dian Weekly Newspapers Asso- ciation and Maurice Dansereau of the Canadian Association of protect press freedom in on the work of the council, and Representatives" of the four French-speaking Radio and Tel- including both the newspaper and broadcasting media, met here to sign the formal agreement to set up the council, expected to become fully operative by the end of the year. The agreement was signed by Gilles Gariepy, president of the Man identified at Edmonton EDMONTON (CP) A 37- year-old man killed Saturday when struck by a truck that failed to stop was Identified to- day as Roy McLeod of Edmon- ton. Police said Mr. McLeod was hit in a lane behind the Salva- evision Broadcasters. The council is believed the first such large-scale organiza- tion in North America although several community news media councils exist in the U.S. An independent body, it will have a 19-member governing committee, consisting of a pres- ident and three six-member groups representing news man- agement, reporters and the gen- eral public. STRENGTH MORAL An excerpt from the constitu- tion says that the council's strength will lie in its moral powers of prestige and repri- mand "guaranteed by its com- position and by the attributes conferred to it by those respon- sible for the Quetx-c press." It will not have executive or judicial power and will have no links with government. Quebec and guarantee the public's access to information; promote high profes- sional standards in research and dissemination of informa- tion; and advertising; respond to complaints relating to the conduct of the press or the conduct of persons or organizations towards the press; publish annual reports tion Army Hostel in downtown The council's aims, as out- Edmonton, lined in the constitution, will be: Film producer convicted of perjury NEW YORK (AP) Movie producer Samuel Bronston was convicted on a federal perjury charge here for falsely de- nying in a bankruptcy case that he once had bank accounts in Switzerland.

COLLECTS DUES The council will finance itself through dues collected from member organizations and from a special fund set up outside the council. Andre Bureau, vice-president of Montreal La Presse, said the Quebec press council is more comprehensive than other exist- ing press councils because it in- cludes the broadcast media, has no dominant group financing it and has one-third representation of public opinion. He said the British press council has only 15 pa- CbM public representation and is dominated and financed by the owner group. Mr. Gariepy said one problem may be finding a council presi- den'. respected by all groups in the polarized Quebec society. Mr. Bureau said procedures will be set up to allow non- members to join the council at a later date.
