Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday January 14, 1971 THEIR KIND OF WEATHER - The Inclement weather of the past two week* through much of Europe ha� been a misery for all - well, almost all. Two polar bears in the Warsaw zoo find the heavy attacks of frost and snow very reminiscent of their homeland, and perfect conditions for snoozing. Auto insurance plan studied Trudeau accused of stirring up African feelings LONDON (CP) - The Daily Telegraph, in an editorial on the Common wealth conference which opened in Singapore today, has' accused Prime Minister Trudeau of stirring up black African feelings over the issue of possible British arms sales to South Africa. The Telegraph says that "every Canadian prime minister, from a safe distance, leads and incites the militancy of Commonwealth Africa and Mr. Trudeau is carrying on the tra- dition. ..." The newspaper says the black African fears of South Africa must be understood. "They are, however, emotional rather than rational, since the maritime arms under discussion have no relevance for continental, use," argues The Telegraph, a supporter of the governing Conservative party in Britain. "irrational objections cannot be given much weight in British policy-making. "Unfortunately, Common-wealth conferences seem almost expressly designed to make such differences loom far larger than they should." The role of the Canadian prime minister is partly responsible for this, the paper sug- The Telegraph says British Prime Minister Heath should "refuse to be drawn into any over-dramatized debate in Singapore." "If, before or at that time (when arms are sold), any countries withdraw from the Commonwealth, only a minority in this country will worry," the paper says. "The merits of the Commonwealth as it is do not include any net advantage to Britain." The Daily Mail, another Conservative-supporting paper, says that among most Britons "the mere mention of the Commonwealth raises a cynical yawn." "Mr. Trudeau of Canada shows sympathy with the African attitude..... "Canada and even Australia are fed up with being Americanized. Why don't they start linking their trade with the black Commonwealth? The Times says few Commonwealth leaders will be happy if Heath simply tells them he is not yet ready to say whether Britain will sell naval ships to South Africa. Such leaders as Trudeau "will be left deeply disturbed about the future of the Commonwealth," The Times predicts. The British intention to sell maritime arms to South Africa goes against the advice of the "highly influential" Canadian prime minister and the similarly-qualified Prime Minister Indira Gandhi of India, the paper maintains. "It is surely not in Britain's own national interests to incur so much ill in return for so small a gain as the sale of a few frigates," The Times adds. QUEBEC (CP) - Transport Minister Georges Tremblay said Wednesday the Quebec government is considering instituting a state-operated automobile insurance program. Mr. Tremblay said in an interview any plan adopted by Quebec would not be patterned after the Saskatchewan program, established in 1946, but might be similar to the Manitoba plan to be introduced in November. Geographical differences in particular make the Saskatchewan program unsuited to Quebec, he said. Experts in the transport department would study all aspects of the Manitoba program. The Quebec Federation of Labor sent a letter Tuesday to Premier Robert Bourassa asking him to institute a state-operated program to put an end to the "considerable increases" in automobile insurance costs faced by Quebecers. The federation said insurance premiums in the province have increased an average of 15 per cent annually during recent years. Trinidad student washes dishes to get education CALGARY (CP) - Parme-nand Ramcheran, a Trinidad student attending the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, is washing dishes between classes but may still not get an education for lack of funds. A landed immigrant since last June, Mr. Ramcheran, 20, can't qualify for a government student loan until he has been in Canada one year. He is working his way through an aeronautical engineering technology program. Although the institute's food services department staggered his hours to enable him to attend classes, Mr. Ramcheran I says the job allows him little | time to study. A Calgary motel has offered | him a free room in return for 14 hours of desk work a week, but he still needs money for food and clothes. The International Students Association donated $100 to Mr. Ramcheran and school officials were looking for other ways to assist him, Mr. Ramcheran says he has no plans to return to Trinidad and hopes to settle in western Canada.
