Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-16,Lethbridge, Alberta 10-THE LETHBRIOQI HERALD - WtdnMday, January 16, 1974 Britain is accused of treating Uganda refugees shabbily LONDON (AP) - the last camp for resettlement of Asians expelled from Uganda closed Tuesday amid charges the British government treated the immigrants shab> bily. The less than SO famiUe« leaving the former RAF base of West Mailing near London were the last of atiout 22,000 persons uprooted when Ugan^ President Idi Amia announced in August, 1972, that all Asians with British passports in Uganda would have to leave the country. Immigrants leaders say there was no sustained attempt by the British to relocate the Asians, but the government - appomted Ugandan Resettlement Board said it is satisfied. The uprooted Asians were mostly members of the Uganda middle class — storekeepers, merchants, doctors, dentists, accountants. clerical and administrative workers and their families. When ttoe countries of East Africa became independent in the 1960s, the Asians were given the choice of taking the citizenship of the new states or remaining British. Those who chose British citizenship kept a British passport but stayed as traders and professional people. With unemployment high among blacks, there was great messure on them to leave. The Asians themselves saw the danger signais and during the mid-196te, there was a sharp increase in the number who came into BritainVANIA'S ECONOMY MEATS 904-7thAvt.S.    Phone 329-4545 Youf treeier experts Join your (nenda In thoir success m meat buying at Vanta’s Meat Economically and advantageous The oiQ tasnioned way Sometimes you have to wait several minuies HERE ARE YOUR SPECIALS POR THIS WEEK 1.    Van’« All Bmf Salami................. lb. 1.69 2.    Van’t Summer Sausage .............. )b. 1>69 3.    Van’a Farmer 1 >09 4.    Van’s Imported Cheese 1>39 5.    Vantas Princess Roast 1.69 6.    vaitta’t Spiced Reliadas..............ib. 1.89 7.    Vanta's Country Cut Spare Rib 8.    Vanta’s Fresh Beef Sausage.............Ib.89e Dtllyniwlv-NoOhiMuH 9.    Vanta’s Pure Pork Sausage .............Ib.89e DaHyMad«-NoOldSturr 10.    Vanta's Ground Beef Ground Fresh Hourly................................. lb. <99 11.    Vanta’s Chuck Roast Cut your <88 12.    Vania’s Chuck Steak ..................

Many were prosperous but they were allowed to take «ily a small fraction of their wealth with them. Six thousand went to relatives in Britain or emigrated to India and Canada. But 22,000 were helpless, and were transferred from the blazing sun of East Africa to cold, foggy Britain, where the native population regarded them with deep suspicion. The Uganda Resettlement Board was formed with about 480 civil servants temporarily drawn from other government departments. The government opened 16 camps and spent ^ equivalent about $14.6 million to resetUe the newcomers. In the n months that followed, the board was able to find jobs for S5 per cent of the Asians. But three reports, all highly critical of the government in its treatment of the Asians, are due to be published within the next few weeics. The theme of the reports is that the Ugandan A^ans were received in what one immigrant leader called "a fit of national sulks.” Dipak Nandy, former director of the trust, said: "T^e government panicked at its own courage and has laeen appeasing its reactionary supporters ever since.” BRIEFS SUBWAY STOPS PARIS (AP) - Traffic on the Paris subway system shut down during a five-hour strike Tuesday to protest the recent killing of an employee. The strike started early on two lines, then spread to the other lines after most workers had arrived at their jobs. The subway worker was killed by muggers, and employees fear more attacks. Defence ministers Barnard, left, and RichardsonAustralia ready in peacekeeping OTTAWA (CP) - The Australian defence minister surprised Canadian reporters today by saying his county would like to get involved in Defence Minister Lance Barnard said in a news conference Australia would “be happy to relieve Canada” of some of tlie responsibility it has bad over the years. This attitude is in contrast to the marked disenchantment of the Canadian government in recent years over peacekeeping assignments. It has been involved in more of these than any other country. External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp has often said "we are not preaching for a call” to join peacekeeping or tnicekeeping efforts. The last time he said that was just before Canadians were sent to the Middle East to join the new United Nations Emergency Force (UNEP). Mr. Barnard, who met Defence Minister James Richardson Monday and met Mr. Sharp Tuesday, said the 77,000 - member Australian armed forces would be agreeable to joining Canada in peacekeeping under the UN. He praised Canada’s effortsto help Canada role under UN in peacekeeping and said perhaps it has done more Oian should be expected. If more forces were available for the work, perhaps Canada could be relieved. He was not suggesting that Australians replace any of the 1,100 Canadians now in UNEF. Discussions dealt also with joint research and development, Mr. Barnard said. Tlie two countries should inform each other of decisions on purchase of equipment, he said, adding that perhaps they could buy from each other. Mr. Barnard said Australia would like to see joint exercises involving ground forces, Australia has alMlished conscription. The minister said by 1976 it hopes to have about 34,0(K) land forces, the most in the country’s peacetime history. Like Canada it is attempting to restore a militia. The defence department also is taking over some civil defence responsibility from the states and the minister was interested to learn the Canadian experience in that area. The Canadian defence department operates the Emergency Measures Organization which assists in natural disasters. Poison risksWatch those lead pipes ‘ By JEFF CARRUTHERS Herald OtUwa Burean OTTAWA - Canadian! generally do not face a lead problein in this country, according to the evidence analyzed by a ipecial National Research Council committee on lead in the environment. But Canadians who live in soft water areas, in old homes with lead pipes, could easily be drinking water with higher* than-acceptable levels of lead, a 119-page report on lead In the environment released by the NRC Tuesday cautions. Also, Canadians who make wine at home, using earthenware vessels with a lead glaw pr old enamel containers, run the risk of lead poisoning from their home vintage, the lead panel of NRC’s associate committee on scientific criteria for environmental quality adds. “Fortunately, most of the earthenware crocks manufactured in Canada are made with a ‘salt glaze’ and pose no pr<^lem,” the report adds. The report dismisses, for the Ume being, fears that lead levels in the air resulting primarily from lead released from burnt gasoline pose any health problem in Canadian cities. The levels measures across Canada tend to be highest in city centres and lowest in rural areas, with an average for 20 Canadian cities of about 1.0 microgram^ of lead per cubic meter of air. But the report cites very recent data collected by the federal air pollutim control directorate that showed some high-traffic-density streets in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal to have significantly higher lead levels in the air than expected. The overall age lead values, as measured between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. near the curbside of heavily trafficked streets, were found to be 8.4 micrograms of lead per cubic meter of air in Toronto, 8.2 micrograms in Vancouver, and 4.0 micrograms in Montreal. Concentrations of lead in the study ranged from 0.4 to 22.3 micrograms per cubic meter. The report warned that despite recent Canadian laws, there is still a potential danger to small children posed by a few imported toys painted with high-lead paints. 'The children can eat the paint off toys. On the other hand, for a variety of reasons Canadian children do not seem to suffer from lead poisoning from eating lead paints pealing off of old buildings, as some slum children in the U.S. (particularly in the south) do, the report says. MOONSHINE CLEARED And because Canadian moonshine (illegal liquor) producers seem to be more sophisticated than their American, counterparts, there does not seem to be any significant problem of lead poisoning from illicit liquor. In the U.S., illicit Uquor is the second most common source of lead poisoning, primarily because moonshiners there use primitive equipment such as car radiators and parts joined with lead solder to distill their alcohol. The RCMP report that in Canada the use of automobile radiators is rare; more sophisticated distilling equipment is used, (to the benefit of the health of customers of the Canadian moonshine). Ironically, the report warns that people living close to industrial plants processing lead can suffer from lead poisoning. “At present, we have no real knowledge of how prevalent toese conditions may be in Canadian cities and towns,” according to the report, which was prepared before the lead poisoning problems near lead processing plants in Toronto stirfaced. The report estimates that Canadians ingést about 160 millionths of a gram (160 micrograms) of lead each day in food and water and inhale about 15 micrograms of lead each day from the air.
