Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Maritime singers tops ANNE MURRAY TORONTO (CP) Miritim- ers took top honors at ore- seotatkn of the 1970 GoW Leaf Awards, the Canadian music industry's annual tribute to its most distinguished representa- tives. But the greatest applause at the a w a r d s ceremony in St. Lawrence Hall went to a man outside the Juneau, chairman of the Cana- dia Radio-Television Commis- sion.

(CP) Leaders of five farmer and rancher associations in British [tolumbia's East Kootenay area lave joined in a letter of pro- test over a CBC television doc- umentary televised nationally Dec. 2. Entitled This Land, the pro- gram dealt with a die off of Bighorn sheep that occurred in 1964 in the Bull River area, near Cranbrook. The letter, sent to the CBC, the Canadian Radio Televi- sion Commission and members of parliament, charges that TV viewers heard a commen- tary filled with distortions and, in some instances, lies. The ranchers said the CBC show laid the blame for the dead sheep on the ranchers anc over grazing and they asked whether the CBC has the cour age to present tie complete story. Fish and w i 1 d 1 i f e officials said studies during the last two years had shown that the sheep die-off was primarily due tr pneumonia caused by a lung worm infection among the sheep. The studies show, they said, that over grazing was only one of the factors involved in weakening the sheep and al- lowing the disease to spread.
