Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta day said Peaceful A woman on a Vancouver beach enjoys warm sunny and q relaxing smoke while writing a letter. 5h�* she has been pipe smoking for two years. Purchasing policies studied By IAIN HUNTER Herald's Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA - The federal government is still reviewing its purchasing policies to ensure that the West gets its fair share of contracts, Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau said here. Barry Mather (NDP-Surrey-White Rock) noted that the prime minister stated in Winnipeg last Friday that the West should follow Quebec's example to find its place in Confederation and get rid of its feeling of alienation. He asked if Trudeau would consider encouraging more federal contracts for federal purchases for Western Canada "and in particular, for British Columbia where the number of such contracts in recent months has been minimum." The prime minister replied that when Defence Minister James Richardson, member for Winnipeg South, was supply and services minister, "he announced that it would be government policy to review the whole matter of purchasing and contracts by his department and by the government in order to ensure an equitable spread." -Thursday, February 22, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 25 Wildlife experts face stiff problems WASHINGTON (CP) - Experts from nearly 80 countries, working to write a treaty to protect rare forms of wildlife and plants the world over, have some stiff problems to iron out. Each country must decide which form of wildlife within its borders is a species that is, or could become, endangered by trade in that species - or in products derived from that species. Then, it must be decided how endangered each such species is. Once that is done, the 80 nations in concert must figure out the best way to protect those species needing protection - what import and export controls are needed, what customs forms must be drawn up and Doukhobor women protest NELSON, B.C. (CP) - About 40 members of the Sons of Freedom Doukhobor sect paraded in this v/est Kootenay city Tuesday, protesting alleged discrimination against the sect and its spiritual leader, Stefan Soro-kin. Mr. Sorokin now is back in Uruguay after a short stay in t h e nearby community of Krestova last year. The women marched to the RCMP headquarters and waited on the steps of the building until a member of the RCMP's special "D" squad spoke to them. Then they went to the Nelson courthouse, where they met with Provincial. Judge Williams Evans. And squad spokesman said today the Freedomite women seemed satisfied after talking with the RCMP officer. He denied that the special squad devotes its investigations exclusively to Doukhobor activities, saying the squad carries out investigations of a general nature. what guidelines are necessary for the identification of prohibited plants and animals by border personnel. As Dr. Malcolm Prebble, head of Canada's delegation to the endangered species conference, points out, while concentrating on protecting wild flora and fauna, the convention dees not want to hamper legitimate trade. There are 73 countries taking part in the tliree week conference to end early next month. Six countries and s i x international agencies have sent observers and there are 77 staff members - interpreters, translators, writers, documents officers, stenogaphic personnel, and members of the secretariat. Proceedings are in English, French, Spanish and Russian with simultaneous translation. Prebble explained in an interview that the conference will not deal with danger to any species for any reason other than by trade. Should a species be threatened by other forces strictly within the country of origin, that is the problem of the country concerned. One problem arises, however, when a species considered endangered within one country is considered abundant elsewhere, making necessary a complicated system of export and import permits. Canada itself has many rare plants but none endangered by trade, hence she has put none forward for the international list. /""^ SIMPSONS oears Splitskin Leather Pant Coats Per-suede-ingly priced!
