Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, February 23, 1974 New student work program branded band-aid scheme By VIC PARSONS OTTAWA (CP) A million government summer- work program that would pay some students for work in voluntary service organizations was revealed Friday but some repre- sentatives of the private groups did not fall over themselves in gratitude. While conceding the program is generally good, several representatives from about 60 national groups expressed fears about government involvement, said the plan could decrease the number of volunteers and termed the proposal a band aid idea. The one-year program could provide salaries of up to weekly to a minimum of students in summer work. Ten per cent of the mil- lion allotted for group projects would be spent on national programs.

By JOSEPH MacSWEEN MONTREAL (CP) George Springate, member of the Quebec national assembly and former Montreal policeman, says wire-tapping rights should be withdrawn from the Montreal police department. That was Mr. Springate's reaction to a Quebec police commission hearing in which the Montreal police director said he had been "bugged" by a deputy director. The allegation startled Mon- trealers trying to keep track of a series of confusing episodes and accusations in recent years involving the conduct of high police officers on the one hand and reports of links between politics and organized crime on the other. Reports of "clan" warfare in the upper echelons of the force have been the topic of lively editorial debate' in the French-language newspapers.

Government already had taken over too much even though voluntary groups had done a lot on their own, she added. NEW LEADERS The Summer Community Service Project done properly, could provide young leaders for voluntary service groups, she said. "But don't ask me to kneel before you and thank she said. Reuben Baetz, executive di- rector of the Canadian Council on Social Development, which Tuesday at the commission inquiry that he had been told he was the victim of a "body- bugging" by Andre Guay, a deputy director. Mr. Daigneault said he was informed of the alleged bugging by Andre Gaulin, a civilian personal aide who in turn had been told by Andre Ledoux, police department legal adviser until he was fired late last month. Mr. Ledoux later denied the al- legation. The unexpected twist came on the second day of the two- commissioner inquiry, which was called after Mr. Daigneault suspended Inspector Gerald Cholette, chief of the morality squad, and recommended his dismissal at the same time Mr. Ledoux was fired. That action followed pub- lished reports that Mr. Cholette, a veteran officer with 20 years on the force, authorized installation of a bugging device at the home of Mr. Ledoux at the request of the lawyer, who is 33 and became legal adviser to the department in 1969. The new hearing is, of course, separate from the Quebec Police Commission's inquiry into organized crime. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court of Canada has given permission to Jean-Jacques Saulnier, suspended as. Montreal's police director in 1972 by still another inquiry, to appeal the findings of the inquiry, which judged him incompetent for the post. SEES THREE FACTIONS Mr. Springate, a lawyer who served on the force between 1958 and 1969, rising to the rank of sergeant, said the department is torn by a three- way fight among "something called the Guay faction, something called the Saulnier faction and something called the Daigneault faction." In the by CFCF-TV-Mr. Springate said: "I think we have witnessed at the commission and by the actions of the Montreal police department that they nave demonstrated they are not responsible when it comes to said the Liberal backbencher. "Therefore, that right should be withdrawn from the Montreal police department and not given back to them until they have proved they are responsible and until they have finished their three- ringed circus fight" At one point the police director testified he had been too busy to supervise electronic eavesdropping, which fell into the domain of Inspector Cholette and Paul Beaudry, assistant chief inspector in charge of a unit combatting organized crime and terrorism. HOSTILE REACTION MOUNTS By DENNIS TRUDEAU QUEBEC (CP) As hostile reaction mounted to rumored changes in Quebec province's language legislation, a spokes- man for Premier Robert Bou- rassa's office suggested Friday that public agitation is premature. The premier himself has de- clined comment on reports that the government plans to amend 1969 legislation which gave parents the right to choose the language of instruction of their children. organized the meeting, said her views had given some balance to the remarks offered by the government spokesmen. Mr. Baetz said earlier that it would be a paradox if voluntary groups have to turn to government in order to survive. A two-hour discussion on the new program showed other fears. Chris Bradshaw, of the Canadian Organization of Public Housing Tenants said experience had shown where some volunteers had begun to receive pay, the voluntary efforts of others had dropped off. Mr. Faulkner said that would be a risk, but a substantial part of the budget would not be for salaries. About half will be used for salaries. "The last thing we want to do is to replace voluntary help with salaried he told the meeting George Rohn of Mental Health Canada and Shirley Kossman of the National Council of Jewish Women had other criticisms. "There is an absence of con- tinuity and consistency in gov- ernment policy that we will have to come to grips with if we want to do meaningful said Mr. Rohn. Mr. Faulkner said later it was absolute nonsense to say the program was stop-gap or a band aid plan. The government was only intending to deal with the job situation for students between May and September. The program is seen by the government as a means of in- creasing participation by the young in service groups while at the same time providing them with money to continue their education, Mr. Faulkner says. He added that priority will be given to projects that can be carried on voluntarily and which may benefit dis- advantaged groups. Programs may operate any time between May 1 and Sept. 15 and the government has set April 15 as the deadline for ap- plications. The government will pay for up to five students for each local project and 10 for national programs. Housing plan takes some sting out of being poor By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) New forms of house tenure and rent subsidy might draw more people into community affairs and take the sting out of being poor, says Chris Bradshaw, acting executive secretary of the Canadian Organization of Public Housing Tenants. Mr. Bradshaw, who said his views are personal, suggested in an interview this week that a form of tenure mid-way be- tween private ownership and tenancy might give more people a stake in the community. A universal rent subsidy plan, linked to the annual income tax form, might allow low-income people to live in decent housing without being segregated from the rest of society. Mr. Bradshaw has travelled across Canada in the last two years helping to organize public housing tenants. The national organization was established last fall in Quebec City. In a recent article in Housing and People, Mr. Bradshaw said: "It is obvious to anyone in the housing field that there are going to be changes in the governmental approach to ousing of significant proportions in the years ahead." He said in the Canadian Council on Social Development magazine that public housing tenant organizations could play a large role in housing policy since they are the only organ- ized consumer group in the field. CITES PRESSURE While public housing tenant groups wanted to retain the public housing system, there was strong pressure for new WANT DA VAN OUT JERUSALEM (Reuter) About people, including soldiers in uniform, demonstrated outside Premier Golda Meir's office Sunday, mainly calling for the resignation of Defence Minister Moshe Dayan. The demonstrators dispersed peacefully when they were asked to dp so by steel- helmeted riot police who blocked their way to the Knesset parliament several hundred yards away. forms of housing. In an interview, he said there should be a new tenure method that would encourage more people to feel an interest in their neighborhoods. This would aid city planning also. Low-income Canadians can't enjoy the benefits of private ownership, Mr. Bradshaw said. In rental housing, they were at the mercy of their landlords. Public housing had its dis- advantages, too, as government had the power to tell tenants when to move to smaller units and to assess housing needs. However, it was more humane than ordinary tenancy as rents dropped when income declined. Even housing cooperatives with their mixture of private ownership and tenancy had drawbacks. "Co-operatives have problems in that residents hold the mortgage in he said. "If a number of units become va- cant and they have difficulty in meeting the payments there is nothing to prevent the mortgage company from foreclosing." Mr. Bradshaw suggested a new tenure system might be developed giving tenants a financial share in the property through rents and a say in management. Neighborhood groups, con- dominium councils and other organizations probably could work together for a more flex- ible tenure system, he said. A tenure system that would give tenants a bigger say in the community might improve city planning, he said. Home-owners now had the biggest voice in planning decisions and they frequently opposed proposals to build high-rise buildings. "Private ownership is one of the major stumbling blocks to having a neighborhood Mr. Bradshaw said. He also proposed a universal "rentment" plan that would provide subsidies for low-income persons paying more than 25 per cent of their income for rent payments. For example, tenants filling out income tax forms would complete an extra sheet for housing only. They would attach rent receipts to show actual rental for the previous year. If the figures showed they were paying more than 25 per cent of their income in rent, the government would return a subsidy. This plan would separate rent supplements from social work administration, Mr. Bradshaw said. It also would give low- income people a greater choice of housing. Some tenants who wanted to move out of public housing might have that choice, he said.
