Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 7, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - TH1 IfTHMICOl HIRALD - Thursday, January 7, 1971 New era of mutal trust in Alberta Clash with Trudeau melts Indian hostility OTTAWA (CP) - The assistant deputy minister of the Indian affairs department said Wednesday that the sometimes-heated clash between Prime Minister Trudeau and Alberta Indians last June helped melt Indian hostility towards the department and ushered in a new era of mutual trust. J. B. Bergervin, 54, said in an Interview that the June meeting "helped immensely in filling the credibility gap between the department and Indians." "We have a different kind of relations now," he said. "We now can talk about problems unemotionally." "Pot the Indian affairs department, the worst times are over. Dialogue means for us to have Indians right beside us in taking the key decisions; and they'll have to share the responsibilities, the good part and the bad." Consultations between the department and the Indians have extended towards the budget-making level, The consultations help set priorities. "With a budget of $260 millions, we need all the help we can get," said Mr. Bergervin. PRESENT RED PAPER Last June, the Indian Association of Alberta presented their Red Paper to Mr. Trudeau and his cabinet on Parliament Hill. In it, they had harsh criticism QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC eddy Dietrich Certified Denial Mechanic Capitol Furniture Blag. �� PHONE 328-7684SM for the proposed new Indian policy. Replying to the paper, Mr. Trudeau acknowledged that per-hap the government had been naive in some of its proposals. "You can say that the government doesn't understand," he told the Indians. "You can say it's stupid or ignorant, but do not say we are dishonest or trying to mislead you, because we're not." He went on to promise not to force any new policy on Indians, to take all the time necessary to work out final solutions. But Indians must have some trust in the government. After a "cooling off period" Indians began making suggestions to the department. Officials found they could sit down with Indians "without carrying 100 years of injustice on their backs." Mr. Bergervin, who came to the department two years ago 1180,000 stolen at newspaper NEW YORK (AP) ~ Five masked men held up the accounting office of the New York Post Wednesday, making off with about $180,000 in cash, police said. Two of the gunmen kept some 50 employees at bay while the rest of the bandits gathered stacks of money from desk tops and an open safe. The office bad been organizing a cash payroll for printers. One shot was fired into the ceiling during the stickup, but no injuries were reported from the Quebec public service, said his job as an administrator now* is to transmit the new enthusiasm and trust at the program level. One of the newer programs at Four seek Conservative leadership TORONTO (CP) Mines Minister Allan Lawrence became the fourth candidate for leadership of the Ontario Progressive Conservative party Wednesday with a pledge of economy that would mean slashing provincial educational costs by hundreds of millions of dollars. The 45-year-old minister of mines and northern affairs told a news conference that as premier he would restrict government spending in any one area to one-third of Ontario's annual budget. Education Minister William Davis, Municipal Affairs Minister Darcy McKeough and Bert Lawrence, financial and commercial affairs minister, also have formally declared their candidacy to succeed retiring Premier John Robarts at a leadership,convention Feb. 10-12. TOBACCO OUTPUT Total Canadian production of flue-cured tobacco is estimated at 184,235,000 pounds in 197a the department is to train Indians for key positions. There now are 50 Indians in these training positions; within two years they'll be ready to compete with non-Indians for policy-making jobs in the department carrying salaries of $10,000 or more. Mr. Bergervin said no jobs are earmarked for these Indian trainees. "But with the training they are getting, they will be stiff competitors for these jobs," he said. To ensure that some top-level jobs will be open, the department has started the practice of filling some positions on a term basis. The non-Indian taking the job knows he has it for a two-year period. Then it will be thrown open for a competition with well-trained Indians ready to compete for it. Suggests method to control rabies CALGARY (CP) - Any attempt to control rabies by elimination of coyotes should be done selectively, says Gordon Kerr, chief wildlife biologist for Alberta. There is not enough proof to link coyotes with the current outbreak of rabies, he said, and there is no direct evidence to show indiscriminate killing of coyotes halted the disease when it appeared between 1952 and 1956. .At that time 100,000 coyotes, 50,000 foxes and 4,200 wolves were killed by lands and forests department officers, trappers and poisoning campaigns. Also killed were 7,500 lynx and 1,800 bears. Dr. Leslie Ferris, district veterinarian for the federal government, said wildlife officials should start control measures where rabies cases are concentrated. "If they do, I am hopeful there will be little or no rabies by a year from now." There have been 17 cases of the disease since October and five of the rabid animals were coyotes. Mr. Kerr said mange and distemper is prevalent among coyotes now and with the addition of rabies there will be a large reduction in the population with out addition of special controls Clarence Copithorne, Progres sive Conservative MLA for Banff - Cochrane, said "decisive and positive action" is needed to control the disease. The department of lands and forests should stop "hemming and hawing and studying" and immediately reduce the coyote population in areas where there is an abundance." Combat drug abuse SAIGON (AP) - The U.S. command unveiled today a sweeping new program to combat drug abuse among American forces in Vietnam. It includes search-and-destroy operations with marijuana plants as the target. A directive to all field commanders estimated that more than 65,000 U.S. soldiers were guilty of drug abuse during 1970, including more than 11,000 apprehended o r investigated and five times as many who escaped detection. The command said that of 9,253 drug violations by American troops during the first 10 months of last year, 7,065 were for use or possession of marijuana, 1,452 for use or possession of such "dangerous" drugs as amphetamines, barbiturates or LSD, and 736 for use or possession of narcotics, mostly heroin cr opium. The army also has reported that during the first 10% months of 1970, there were 25 confirmed drag deaths among Americans in Vietnam, another 64 fatalities in which drugs were suspected, and more than 700 hospital cases related to drugs. Indian crafts hit by govt, elk policy CALGARY (CP) - The government policy of shipping surplus elk out of national parks rather than slaughtering Uie animals has cut off an important source of hides for Indian crafts, says an official of the Indian affairs department. Lucy Big Plume, chairman of the Indian Arts and Crafts committee, said craft workers on reserves near Calgary now have to rely on hunters for skins but many sports men waste them, unaware of their importance. Hundreds of surplus animals were shot in Banff and Jasper National parks last year, but park officials say this method is used only as a last resort. The next thinning of herds, by shipping out animals, is not expected until this fall. Jasper busier than last year JASPER (CP i - About 200,000 more people visited Jasper National park in 1970 than in 1969, park superintendent J. C. Christakos announced today.
