Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ktmvay, January IS, TM UTHMMI MULft 3 "THE OUTSIDE" Hutterion beliefs require ovoidance of the external world the world that the Brethren coll "the outside." However, they must live in this world while attempting to resist its influences. Does this require a tpeciol law for them? WHERE ARE THEY GOING?

There are only 20 surnames among all the Hutterian colonies and half .of them go bock to the Mor- nvian period in the 16th century. the new ment. Conservative govern Premier Peter Lougheed's human rights act is a top priority item. And it looks like Alberta's Hutterian brethren could move up from their pre- sent restricted status. Every interested group wil be given a chance to present Its viewpoint, says Mr. Russell Attention was focussed on Lethbridge area Hutterites toe 1960's when six members of the Rock Lake Colony at Wrentham, about 30 miles southeast of Lethbridge, were charged with purchasing acres of land to establish a new colony. This may seem a strange crime but the offence was un- der the Communal Property Act, passed by the Alberta leg- islature in 1947 to control tiie spread of Hutterite colonies.

Max Moscovich, Lethbridge lawyer, contended Alberta didn't have the authority to make such a law. The Su- preme Court of Canada de- cided the province could regu- late the sale of land.. It was another chapter In the stormy history of human rights. The first attempt at control came when the Social Credit government introduced legisla- tion in 1942. That bill was thrown out by the Supreme Court of Canada as unconstitu- tional. An amended version was introduced later and after a lengthy court battle, as men- tioned above, was ruled valid in 1969. Opponents of the legislation say it is the kind of move that produces discrimination, prej- udice and intolerance that "spawned Europe's Jewish ghettoes, South Africa's apart- heid and the United State's color bar." And so the review has be- gun. It is a long time coining.
