Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 21, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 26-THE LETHBBIDGE HERALD Friday, Fibrucry 21, 1975 Air terminal gets go-ahead OTTAWA (CP) The federal government has decid- ed to build a small million international airport at Pickering near Toronto, Transport Minister Jean Marchand said Thursday. Rather than the huge air- port originally planned, the government will proceed with only one runway and "appropriate passenger ter- minal and related he said in the Commons. Land costs are estimated at about million and construction costs at million, he said. Estimates for the original airport were billion. The decision comes after 'years of wrangling involving Pickering residents, federal and Ontario cabinet ministers. Mr. Marchand said the new airport should be ready by 1979 or 1980.

"This action will provide for the immediate air trans- portation needs while reduc- ing the disturbance from [light operations as quickly as he said. Development of Pickering airport beyond 1979 or 1980 would depend on growth of the economy and the region.. Mr. Marchand rejected a proposal by a federal inquiry commission for an additional runway at Malton to handle growing air traffic until Pickering is ready. Noise will continue to be a major problem in the Malton area, Mr. Marchand said. "Malton airport therefore should not be expanded more than has already been an- nounced. The cabinet decision evidently was a compromise between those who sought a complete rejection of the Pickering plan and requests to proceed with the full-scale airport. Urban Affairs Minister Barney Danson has opposed building a giant new airport in the Pickering area which cuts into his York North riding. He opposed large airports near major cities before Pickering was selected three years ago by the government.

People, not government, decide Canada's future By STUART LAKE MONTREAL (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau told a group of high school students, their teachers and parents in his Mount Royal riding Thursday that citizens and not govern- ments will decide the future direction of Canada. "We are going wherever you people want this Canada to go." Mr. Trudeau said that no matter how governments look and plan, their programs can be set aside by the changing value of people. As examples of his own gov- ernment programs being al- tered by new values, Mr. [Trudeau cited new airport construction, the language question in Quebec and Cana- dian Indians. Mr. Trudeau said in 1969 the government decided a new airport was needed in Montreal. People in the St. Scholastique Mirabel eager to sell their land to the government. Now they either wanted. more money or their land back. iAt the same time Toronto was demanding a new airport. Now there was strong opposi- tion to it. "The city is divided between those who want a new airport and those who don't want it. The way jl is going, it looks as though it will be very difficult to give an air- port to Toronto." But less than an hour after Mr. Trudeau spoke it was an- nounced in Ottawa that the second Toronto airport was to go ahead. Mr. Trudeau also recalled that in the late 1960s Canadian Indians were unanimous in their condemnation of the In- dian affairs department and the way they were dis- criminated against. But when his government announced a new policy to give Indians back the control of their lands and to abolish the department, the Indians denounced the policy and said they wanted to remain under federal jurisdiction. He said that if a government 10 or 15 years ago had brought in an official language act pro- tecting both French and Eng- lish, Quebec would have wel- comed it. "This was what Quebec al- ways has been asking he said. "But yet, when we come in with it a couple of years ago, it is no longer the temper of the times." Quebec was saying "what the hell, we only want one of- ficial language, not two." Answering questions from students afterwards, Mr. Trudeau said Quebec's language laws are con- stitutional when they apply to education and matters within provincial jurisdiction. He rejected disallowing the bill. When people did not like the laws passed by a govern- ment, they should either get the law changed or change the government. Thatcher 4to block socialsim' LONDON (Reuter) Brit- ain's opposition Conservatives formally installed Margaret Thatcher as their first female leader Thursday and heard her pledge to block "the'path to a socialist state." The installation ceremony set the seal on 49-year-old Mrs. Thatcher's victory last week over four male rivals in a parliamentary election to choose a new party head. Conservative elder Lord Hailsham ceremonially proposed her for the job. He told party members: "It will be Margaret's task, with her flair for incisive speaking and powerful turn of phrase, to unite the party in a fierce determination to ex- pose current errors." Mrs. Thatcher rose to speak heartened by an opinion poll which showed substantial public support for her to become Britain's first woman prime minister. "The next election could be she said. "If the So- cialists are successful we shall be set irretrievably on the path to a socialist state."
