Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 28, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Ftbruiry 28, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Dateline Alberta Mediator appointed Richardson favors extension of NORAD pact EDMONTON (CP) Dr. Bert Hohol, provincial labor minister, yesterday announc- ed the appointment of Dr. K. A. Pugh as mediator in negotiations between Calgary's striking school caretakers and the city's public school district. Dr. Pugh previously served as deputy labor minister of the province. He also was chairman of the Provincial In- dustrial Relations Board. He said representatives of both sides have been asked to prepare for a meeting soon in Calgary. The dispute affects about 780 employees represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees. The collective agreement expired Dec. 31, 1974, and employees went on strike Jan. 29 this year. Fire deliberately set CALGARY (CP) The principal of R. T. Alderman Junior High School here said a fire which forced closure of the school for half a day Thursday was deliberately set. Edward Duncan, principal of the 800 student school, said the school had to be clos- ed because of dense smoke in the school hallways. The fire started in a pile of garbage which had ac- cumulated during the five week old school caretakers strike. It was extinguished by a.teacher. OTTAWA (CP) Defence Minister James Richardson suggested Thursday that the North American Air Defence Agreement (NORAD) with the United States be extended for an indefinite period. The minister said at a meet- ing of the Commons external affairs committee that he is prepared to make two recommendations to cabinet, one for an indefinite extension and one lor 1'ive years. He said he personally prefers the former. NORAD, first signed in 1958, is the arrangement un- der which the U.S. and Canada co-ordinate their defence against the manned bomber through joint air defence headquarters in Colorado Springs.. Its radar facilities are of in- creasing use in civilian air traffic control and this is one of the major reasons for Mr. Richardson's recommenda- tion for retention. The agreement was extend- ed for live years in 1968 and two years in 1973. The last short-term extension was hopes Canada will extend the agreement longer than two years before it expiration dale of May 12. Mr. Richardson gave five reasons for extending the agreement: the success of U.S.-Soviet Union arms talks the Soviet Union still main- tains a large force of long- range bombers. He said "I believe that the security interests of the two North American countries necessitate the maintenance of prudent minimum defence capabilities against bombers." -Both the U.S. and Canada believe that the principle need in North American defence is more peacetime surveillance and control than defence against the bomber. Both were developing civilian military airspace control systems which should be related and compatible with each other. defence partnership un- der which U.S. plans and ac- tivities are discussed with Canada can only enhance considerable to provide all the facilities it uses under NORAD. U.S. attaches con- siderable importance to con- tinued Canadian co-operation in North American defence. Willin.riess of Canada to renew NORAD "would therefore have a positive im- pact on Canadian-U.S. relations at a time when a number of difficult issues have to be settled between the two countries." The minister revealed that Canada would like one altera- tion in the agreement. That would be a change of NORAD regions so that control of de- fence facilities in Western Canada would rest in Canada. At present the defence air control in Eastern Canada is in North Bay, Ont., but in Western Canada it comes from south of the border. The change would result in an increase in Canadian autonomy which would put the NORAD agreement in a new perspective.
