Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Tuesday, February 20, 1973 Provincial park nnounced n CALGARY (CP) - Plans for a 2,800-acre provincial park in the Fish Creek valley on the southern edge of Calgary were announced Monday by Premier Peter Louglieed. He indicated the province had been quietly laying the groundwork for the park while local groups were calling for the halt ot urban growth into the unspoiled area. Most of the land for the park has already been purchased, Mr. Lougheed told a news conference. The park would likely be bounded by the escarpments of the narrow valley on the north and south and the Sarcee Reserve on the west and the Bow River on the east. No specific value for the land was given but land values in the area suggest at least $15 million would be needed to purchase the entire area. The government has purchased 1,250 acres from the Burns Foundation Ltd., for 56.3 million and has an option to buy 127 beloiv coldest reading By ARNIE HAKALA Canadian Press Staff Writer When it's really cold, Mike Newark slips his warm fingers into the record books. "The coldest mankind has ever recorded was 127 degrees below zero at a Russian station named Vostak in the Antarctic," he says with a giggle. Mike, a meteorologist with Environment Canada in Toronto, said that when it gets really cold - as it has been in southern Ontario for the last few days - he spends all his time inside. Last Friday was a cold day 5n Ontario and some other parts of Canada but as Mike will tell you - all those long underwear, toques and extra socks don't tell the real story, It has been much worse.

Development restrictions have been placed on about 900 acres between the Sarcee Reserve and the Macleod Trail. The Fish Creek park would would be the first provincial park established within the boundaries of a major Alberta city and would be part of the provincial parks plan announced in the Alberta throne speech. Party politics come to N.W.T. YELLOWKNIFE. N.WT.. (CP) - Party politics came to the Northwest Territories during the weekend. Six elected members of the territorial council announced they have formed a political party, yet to be named, which will have no ties with any political organization at a national or provincial level. The council, which consists of 10 elected members and three others appointed by the federal government, has traditionally been known for its colorful chai-acters and fierce individualism among members unconnected to any political groups. However, factions started to develop during the last three weeks at an unusually stormy session of the territorial council. The council had to drop its attempts to present a united front in its dealings with OU tawa. Tom Butters, elected member for Westarn Arctic, said in a telephone interview from his home in Inuvik. N.W.T., the party will maintain independence from the Liberal, Progressive Conservative, New Democratic and Social Credit parties No banned mushrooms in Canada OTTAWA (CP)-None of the contaminated cans of mushrooms recalled in the United States during the weekend had made their way to Canada, federal healh officials said today. Thousands of cans of mush-roms were recalled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Saturday because they might be contaminated with potentially poisonous botulism organisms, an often fatal food poisoning caused by bacteria. The U.S. authorities said the mushrooms were packaged in six-pound, nine-ounce cans and would have been sold mainly through wholesale outlets to resaurants. A spokesman for the federal health protection branch here said immediate checks by the Canadian authorities revealed that none of the cans would have been distributed to Canada. on all levels. Mr. Butters, publisher of a weekly newspaper, said he is officially the secretary of the new party but added that no leaders has been elected yet. All except one of the native members of the council joined the new party. The other members come from the relatively-populous Mackenzie Valley and Great Slave Lake areas which will be affected most by the planned highway and pipeline developments. Agreements to form the new party were signed by Willie Adams, Eskimo member for Keewatin: James Rabesca, a Dogrib Indian i-epresenting Great Slave North: Lena Peder-sen, a Greenlandic Eskimo from Central Arctic: Paul Kae-ser of Great Slave South: Lyle Trimble, member for Lower Mackenzie, and Mr. Butters. During the last session of council, all six members repeatedly expressed concern that native northerners were not getting enough development benefits, both socially and economically. Of the eight members not involved in the new party, only four are elected: Nick Sibbes-ton, Mackenzie-TJard: Bryan Pearson, Eastern Arctic; Weldy Phipps, High Arctic, and Dave Searle, Yellowknife. Mr. Butters said he sees the party as "a giant step forward" in the council's drive towards responsible government for the territories. The council has no actual legislative power, being only an advisory body for the coinmis sioner of the N.W.T., who holds the rank of deputy minister in the federal department of northern affairs.

Cultural hits new exchange level PARIS (CP)' - Cultural exchanges between France and Canada will reach a new level later this year with the aid of new communications facilities, says a French government official in an article published today by the France-Canada Association.

Mr.* Malaud said the series will consist of cultural and information programs and entertainment. Cable television was another area in which co-operation between France and Canada could be useful. "This new method of commu- nication will , greatly affect French life on the individual and social level. The possibilities afforded are immense. Mr. Malaud said close co-operation exists between France and both the federal and provincial governments in Canada.
