Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Defence budget raised OTTAWA (CP) - The 1973-74 defence department budget will receive its first major increase in several years, Defence Minis: ter James Richardson, said in the Commons Monday. Slipping several attempts to discover the size of the increase, the minister said most of the increase will be for new equipment. The 1972-73 budget was $1.93 billion and the 1971-72 figure $1.89 billion. But outside the Commons, Mr. Richardson did say that defence spending will exceed the $2 billion level. Alcoholism is major drug problem in Canada By JEFF CARRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA - At one point during the recent federal election campaign, Prime Minister Trudeau described alcoholism as the major drug problem among Canadians. Now, the federal health department has launched a task force on alcohol, to determine how best Ottawa's financial resources can be focussed on combatting alcoholism in Canada, accordng to Health Minister Marc Lalonde. In an interview, Mr. Lalonde expressed particular concern about today's "greater trend among young people towards liquor." And he said he thought Ottawa could do a lot more in the area particularly of alcoholism education programs. To date, Ottawa has done next to nothing. The government, he said, will have to adjust its drug abuse programs to incorporate alcohol, which experts in the field in recent years seem to agree is really a drug along with heroin and cannabis. The task force, which consists of experts from within the health department, is reviewing what Ottawa has done in the past, to provide a basis for recommendations about what improvements should be made for the future. The final report to the minister from the task force is expected early this spring, he suggested. One senior health department official estimated that "virtually none" of the $7.5-million budgeted for the non-medical use of drugs program for the year 1972-73 is devoted to alcohol. Most of the research, education and treatment, it seems, has been done by the provinces. From the minister's comments, it is very likely that a sizeable amount of federal money now devoted to drug education, to combat drug abuse, will be switched to alcohol education. But it also seems unlikely, at this time anyway, that the government will launch such a large alcohol campaign to require additional funds from federal coffers. There have been recent rumors, one should add, that Ottawa is also considering raising liquor taxes, as one more way to dissuade Canadians from consuming so much alcohol. While these rumors have not been confirmed, some observers have suggested only half-face-tiously that such extra revenue from alcohol sales should be devoted to combatting alcoholism in Canada. Mr. Lalonde stressed that the drug abuse problem continues to exist and that alcohol is not a new problem by any means. The only different, it seems, is in public understanding. As a result of the LeDain Commission and other study groups, Canadians now seem to be accepting the fact that alcohol is QUALITY  VALU�*S�fit V/C�  S� Your Better Buy/s Here/ iiiaijlaii * foods * YOUR LOCAL INDEPENDENT GROCER AUK'S 642 13th Street North Phone 328-5742 FREE CITY DELIVERY ON LARGE ORDERS WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO LIMIT QUANTITIES nrapfr * foods*' PRICES EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 8th, 9th and 10th.

Labor rift brews CALGARY (CP) - Proposed revisions to the Alberta Labor Act likely will protect Great Canadian Oil Sands (GCOS) from union attempts to organize its employees at Fort Mc-Murray, Labor Minister Bert Hohol says. A project the size of the oil sands development "should be protected for the sake of the provincial economy," he said in an interview. GCOS petitioned the government last October for a three-year respite from attempts by the Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers to replace an employee association as the 600 workers' bargaining agent. Intensive membership drives have disrupted the work force, the company said. REIMER CRITICIZED Ths union has attempted to organize the employees seven times in 4% years and Neil Reimer, national director of the Atomic Workers, said it "would get into GCOS if it took 20 years." "Neil Reimer feels the company should be in open season all the time . . . whenever he feels the time is ripe for it," Dr. Hohol said. While he confirmed the revised act would afford the company some sort.of safeguards, he would not say what they would be. In Edmonton, president Reg Basken of the Alberta Federation of Labor said Mr. Hohol's statement is "ridiculous." "That would be a denial of the basic rights of the labor act." Mr. Basken, an international representative of the OCAW, said there have been several meetings involving GCOS, the union and the provincial labor relations board, "but they've never proved we disrupted the work force." Sound-proofing poses danger in high-rises EDMONTON (CP) - Improved sound-proofing in new high-rise apartment buildings may contribute to tenants' danger in a fire, Deputy Fire Chief Jack Adams says. He was commenting on a fire which damaged one suite in a high - rise. Although the fire alarms went off, "the hallways are soundproofed so well that people can't hear them." He said the problem may have to be solved through a change in the national building code which could require a fire bell in each apartment. Pacpiin named land chief EDMONTON (CP) - Charles E. PAquin has been appointed director of lands for the Alberta government. Mr. Paquin will be responsible for the over-all direction of the disposition of publicly-owned land in the province through leases, sales and various permits. Dr. V. A. Wood, deputy minister of the lands and forests department, said Mr. Paquin has 22 years experience in the department, the last six as assistant to the director of lands, and now will be responsible for a staff of 145 employees. He replaces D. S. Lawson who retired Dec. 1 because of health reasons. Tire company loses case LONDON (AP) - General Tire and Rubber Co. has been awarded about $3.33 million damages against Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. in a dispute over alleged infringement of a General Tire patent. The award made here in the dispute between'the two American tiremakers was believed to be the costliest patent action ever made in Britain. Judge Sir Patrick Graham declared "it is quite clear" that Firestone "deliberately" infringed a General Tire patent for oil-extended rubber compound for vehicle tire treads.
