Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-12,Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE LETHBRIDOI HERALD - Saturday, ilanuary 12,1974 BUFFALO HUNT PLANNED TO FEED NATIVE PEOPLE FORT CHIPEWYAN (CP) - A hunt for atwut 200 buffalo is plann£<t in Wood Buffalo National Park to provide meat for native people in this far northeastern Alberta community. Ron Malis, regional director for Paries Canada, says the slaughter was agreed to only after a study of the socioeconomic needs of people in the Fort Chipewyan area showed that residents are still feeling the effects of reduced trapping and fishing income since the completion of the Bennett Dam. A helicopter and snow vehicle will be used Monday to drive buffalo to a huge corral near Sweetgrass Landing on the Peace River, about 30 miles west of Fort Chipewyan. Paric warden staff will do the shooting and veterinarians with the Canadian Wildlife Service will check the animals. HARDLITE LENSES...

Thanks to you, about 300 million beverage bottles and cans from every walk of life didn't get the old heave-ho last year. The cans are being sold back to industry for re-use and bottles are being stockpiled pending sale to industry. And more than 140 independent, free-enterprise container depots proved that recycling doesn’t have to be a tax burden. In Alberta, container recycling is doing very well, thanks to you. So keep it up. And here are a couple of hints for getting faster service at depots. Avoid Saturdays. Try weekdays, mid-morning or mid-afternoon. And pre-sort containers by kind and size for even faster service. Three hundred million containers that didn’t go to waste makes a lot of sense, doesn't it?

Francois Cloutier, Quebec education minister and council chairman, told a news conference that any federal move on the research policies is bound to have an impact on provincial education systems and a consulting mechanism is needed "so these problems don’t arise.” The ministers will also approach the federal government to seek a permanent consulting mechanism for selection of Canadian delegations to international educational conferences. WANT THEIR SAY “Up to now the federal government has been organizing its own delegations, Mr. Cloutier said, adding that the provinces want a say in deciding who will head the Canadian delegations and whc will make up the delegation. He said he has already had a meeting with External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp which “convinced me we could easily reach an agreement.” Mr. Cloutier and Thomas Wells, Ontario minister of education, are to meet again with Mr. Sharp to discuss the matter. Quebec has already had success in getting its education department representatives on to Canadian delegations to conferences of French-language countries. On the research side, the un-inimous provincial position is ‘hat the provinces want to be nvolved in discussions and nonsuited on federal decisions ‘egarding national priorities on research and in the federal government’s distribution of research subsidies and contracts AVID PROBLEMS Such consultation is needed to avoid having federal programs conflicting with provincial priorities or upsetting provincial programs, Mr. Cloutier said. Jack McNie, Ontario minister of colleges and universities, said that there is a ban on capital spending in Ontario universities while the province re-appraises its priorities for post-secondary education but federal grants for research to Ontano universities put pressure on the province and leave it in a dilemma. This could be avoided through consultations. The ministers also feel that they should have a say in how federal research ^ants are distributed to universities. Some universities have been getting much more research money than others. Ì London in crisis London comnnuters head homeward beneath the dial of Big Ben as the House of Commons meets nearby in emergency session on Britain’s powder and transportation crisis.

Islands takeover just pipe dream QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Ctrmiad Owtal fttoelMDtc CifMM Furnllur» lid«. PHONE: 32S-76U TORONTO (CP) - Gov. Alexander Mitchell of the British Crown colony of the Turks and Caicos reacted to the suggestion that the more than 30 tiny Caribbean Islands become part of Canada by saying: "You just can’t do that sort of thing, you know.” Max Saltsman, New Democratic Party member of Parliament for Waterloo-Cambridge, proposed the idea. He introduced a private member’s bill In the Commons Thursday to set up a committee to study bringing the Turks and Caicos into Confederation as part of Nova Scotia. But Gov. Mitchell, in a telephone interview Wednesday with The Star from his home on Grand Turk Island said: “Nobody talked to me about it ... The islands are a de->endent colony of the United kingdom, you know. You can’t even suggest taking us over without talking to London first. They are responsible for external affairs.” Mr. Saltsman, who visited the islands with a group of MPs last July, said they are beautiful but poor. ‘NOT MUCH HOPE’ Unless the islands, with their 6,000 inhabitants, “associate themselves with a much larger and stronger economy, there's not much hope for them,” 'Mr. Saltsman said Wednesday. “They are too English to join with the United States ... They should be part of Canada. We could ensure their economic futures.” And, added Mr. Saltsman, the islands, 1,600 miles south of Ottawa, are “400 miles closer to Ottawa than Vancouver is." Gov. Mitchell said the islands, totalling 166 square miles, have major unemploy- ment, little trade and no fresh water other than rainfall “and I can’t imagine the Canadians putting as much money in as the British are doing now.” Britain currently spends almost |2 million annually on the islands and the governor said “we are subject to one of the highest levels of aid per capita in the world.” While most of Canada was enduring frigid temperatures Wednesday, the thermometer on Grand Turk registered 80 degrees.
