Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Now it's Golden Join-Alberta move spreads GOLDEN, B.C. (CP) The Golden Chamber of Commerce has voted overwhelmingly in favor of a move for the town of to secede from British Columbia and join Alberta. Only 40 people were expected to attend a meeting called by the chamber Thursday night, but 237 Columbia Valley residents from as far as Revelstoke, 90 miles to the west, and Cranbrook, 160 miles to the south attended. However, only chamber members were allowed to vote on the secession move: 46 for and two against. A delegation from Fernie, whose board of trade last month voted unanimously for Fernie to join Alberta, was on its way to the meeting but called saying their car got stuck in the snow. Most of the speakers at the meeting attacked Premier Dave Barrett's government for ignoring Golden. "Barrett's saving all the carrots for the next election while this little town gets Alderman Doris Larsen said.' Golden has been a Social Credit stronghold for 20 years and is represented in the legislature by former labor minister James Chabot, one of only eight Socreds left in the house after the 1972 NDP landslide. A secession committee was set up and will work with the Fernie committee to rally support from other communities in southeastern B.C. Joe Walsh, a director of the chamber, said many residents in Golden 500 road miles from Vancouver and 160 miles from Calgary shop in Alberta to avoid the five-per-cent sales tax in B.C.

By VICTOR MACKIE OTTAWA Canadian Pacific Airlines will how be able to turn around some of their transcontinental flights from Vancouver at Toronto or Ottawa without the expense of having to fly on to Montreal, under a policy change announced by" Transport Minister Jean Marchand. Transcontinental flights from Vancouver cannot however be terminated at Winnipeg, it was learned Friday, contrary to earlier reports. Some confusion arose from the announcement of the policy change which led to the belief that the limit had been removed from the number of flights CP Air could make across Canada. This was not correct a spokesman for the transport department said. Nor was it correct to assume that CP Air would be able to initiate new flights from Vancouver and terminate them at Winnipeg under the provisions the new policy, he said. It could lead to a change in scheduling of flights into and out of Ottawa by CP Air, a CP Air spokesman said in Van- couver. Ultimately it is expected here that CP Air will be permitted to introduce more flights from Ottawa westward or from the west into Ottawa with the capital as the final Court orders doctors to try to save baby GEHL I HYDRA-TILT Box visit our dtaptay Heavy Duty All Steel Unit.

(AP) A Maine court has instructed surgeons to try to save the life of a deformed infant whose parents wish it to die Justice David Roberts of Cumberland County Superior Court ruled that the parents of the baby boy "have no right to withhold such treatment and that to do so constitutes neglect in the legal sense." The child, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Houle of West- brook, .was born Feb. 9 with several deformities on his left side, including one which ne- cessitates intravenous feed- ing. An operation was per- formed on the child Thursday after the court ruling was is- sued. But a Portland pediatri- cian, Dr. Martin Barren, tes- tified, "We have passed be- yond the point where correc- tion would be of any benefit" to the boy. Officials at Maine Medical Centre said Friday night that the infant was still alive. The hospital brought suit against the Houles two days after the child's birth. It re- quested and received a tem- porary restraining order per- mitting the hospital to con- tinue intravenous feeding to keep the child alive until fur- ther court rulings. Officials said the parents requested that life-sustaining measures be halted and that the potentially corrective op- eration not be performed. Roberts said: "The most basic right en- joyed by every human being is the right to life itself." destination. The decision will depend on the Canadian Transport Commission. A CP Air spokesman at the company's head office in Van- couver told FP Publications Friday the company was seek- ing clarification of the new policy announcement. He ex- plained there were some as- pects on which CP Air was not clear and wanted more infor- mation. It is pleased with the policy change. Unofficially the company had learned that a press report suggesting transcontinental flights from Vancouver could be termi- nated at Winnipeg, was not correct. The operational word in the public announcement was "transcontinental" the department of transport explained. Flying from Vancouver to Winnipeg and turning around after landing there, to fly back to Winnipeg would not be regarded as "transcontinental." Obviously the announce- ment by Mr. Marchand took the Canadian Transport Commission by surprise, despite the fact the minister had mentioned late last year he would be making some changes in domestic air policy early this year. When the transport department suggested FP Publications call the CTC to get clarification on how the new policy would affect CP Air's operations by CTC, passed the query directly back to the transport department "That department has an- nounced the new policy. It will clear up the impact of the pol- icy change and explain what effect it will have on CP said a CTC spokesman.
