Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-16,Lethbridge, Alberta ‘"Tl'-T-'-y. OaMWry ll, 1t74 - tw lxtmmhmui herald - 3Will Ottawa cough up money? By PAUL JACUCm Herald Ottawa Bareaa OTTAWA - Health and W«lfar« Miniat«r Marc Lalonde't office U kMfrfM tightUpped about that muci rumored multi-million dollar federal ooatributh» to the 1078 Commoawealth GanM, an event that will bring thousands of Inteniattonal tourists to Alberta Md focus the world’s attentk» oa tte Rocky Btountain prwiiice, *nd Edmonton Centre MP Steve Paproski claims the federal government stance is aU bav ed on “partisan politics.” Estimates for the cost of the much-chamoioned games Trudeau’s government punishes Albertans 1^ refasing to act." Mr. Paproiki does admit that Ottawa hasn’t said it wtfi’t make some cootrihutloa and, in fact, he fuUjr cipecU lome mUlions of doUars in federal ftada wUl eventually find tbeir way to Alberta, but he’s annofyed at the delays in the announcemeot and what he says are "Mrt^ political reasons” for those de* **^ou can bet,” be sm.” that the day before a fetferal eiecUon is called an announce-tnent wiU be made that Mr. Trudeau’s Liberal govem- ment is foing to give pertupe la.s miTlion to those Alb«-tans it loves so miidi! Why do they have to bring ptditics into tporU? It’s so ridiculovs,” says Mr. Paproski. what concerns him more is the delay in getting the money. Building supply coats, and before entering poUtics and after leaving prtfessional football Mr. Paproski was in the buildlac supplies buiioess, are increasing all the time. ■ Befoi» we get tite money we’ll be p ‘ ■■ ----- cent more products a_,----------^ getting-and needing~lS to 20 per cent more or less n we get ate money ! paying 15 to 20 per re for building suñly t so, in fact, we’u be whichever way you look at It.*' hints made There have been hints that an announcement may be made in the next Throne Kich-February 2Mh w^ liament meets again-^t Mr. Paproski again says this will be done for poUUcal reasons and stresses that tte Throne spe««b debate will prevent the money going to Alberta immedUtdy. “And dont’t forget, sometimes delivery of building supply products takes six months or so. In the meantime costs increase, those costs are passed on to the purchaser, pnd clans are delayed. We need that money and we need it now, not just for Edmonton but for Alberta as a whole because the tourist spinoff will benefit all areas of the province." Latest word from Mr. La-loode’s office? The minister doesn’t thiiA it would be “the proper occasion” to annoonce iederal plans when be is in Edmonton in mid-February to attend the special welfare ministers’ conference. Id fact, in the Commons, Mr. Lalonde emphasized the words “possible financial contribution” in his comments—which worries Mr. Paproski more than ever. Desolation heights A 16-year-old youth is silhouetted against the evening sky as he stands on a two-foot ledge atop the 27-storey tower of Toronto city hall Tuesday. Rush-hour crowds watched for 90 minutes as police and firemen tried to talk him off the ledge. Firemen and a minister finally talked him to safety.

Chinese should be exempted EDMONTON (CP) - A Social Credit MLA says Edmonton’s Chinese stores should tie exempted from provincial legislation requiring prepared meats to be kept at specified temperatures. George Ho Lem of Calgary McCall said Chinese merchants have hung barbe-qued meaU in their traditional places in storefront windows for thousands of years and no meat is displayed for more than six hours. “In our multicultural society, ethnic groups should be allowed to follow up their culture.” The Ednwrnton environmental health services branch in August demanded that the Chinese communiiy keep the meats refrigerated, but Neil Crawford, provincial health and social development minister, allowed the displays to be continued pending an investigation. vary, oui currenuy uk iwu>b of t44.6 million in capital costs and *5.2 mUlion in operating ««penses are frequently mentioned.    ^ llie provincial government has committed itself to 111.6 milUm, the City of Edmonton is likely to give an equal amount Mie way or an> (rther, and the federal govem-m«it is espected to cw# up between $15 and |22.3 million— up to half of the capital costs— but Mr. Laloitde has in recent weeks consistently refused to commit the minority Liberal government to anywing on the matter. NO ANSWERS Mr. Paproski, a keen sportsman and an ex-Edmonton Eskimo football player, has tried to get answers from Mr. Lalonde by a^ing him questioos in the House of Commons «> several occasons, on such dates as Dec. 21 and Janh lOth. In both Instances, Mr. Lalonde has denied allegations made by Mr. Paproski as well as refusing to commit Ottawa to any specific deal concerning the world famous and liistoric Commonwealth Games. “I can’t figure out this guy. I know he’s no sporty enthusiast, but he was a nice fellow when he was in the prime minister's office as a special advisor or assistant. Now be is a cabinet minister it seems every move he makes is based on what would be good for the Ltt>eral party,” says the Alberta MP. Mr. Paproski charges that former Liberal cabinet minister Pat Mahoney, onetime MP for Calgary South who lost bis seat in 1972 to Progressive conservative Peter Bawden, made a speech during the election campaign at the Edmonton Jubilee Auditorium promising millions on millions of dollars in federal assistance to the Edward’s Rod Weeder and Heavy Duty Cultivator ORDER NOW AND RE READY FOR SPRING WORK. BUY EARLY AND SAVEI GENERAL FARM SUPPLIES CouHs Highway, Box 1202    Phone 328-1141 Candle makers asked to find sub for core OTTAWA (CP) - Candle manufacturers are being asked to find a substitute for lead which is used as the core of some candle wicks, the consumer affairs department said 'Hiesday. Burning candles with lead cores adds to poison in the environment, the department said. However, the amount of lead given off was minute and did not present a health hazard serious enough to re-uire action under the Hazar-ous Products Act. COMMITMENT I thought he had promised somewhere betwea |13 and J15 million, but understand now from various sources—federal, provincial and municipal—that the figure was more like $22.3 mauon, half of the estimate capital costs.” The Quebec cabinet minister has denied on two occasions that Mr. Mahoney, since bis defeat appointed by Mr. Trudeau’s government to the Federal Court of Canada and now known as Mr. Justice Patrick J, Mahon^, ever made such a commitment at the Edmonton Liberal election campaign rally. Mr. Paproski says he has no doubt whatsoever in his mind that the commitment was made. “It’s simply another case of victimization for political reasons.

(AP) ~ Gripping a .50^:alibre machine-gun, John Wayne rode an armored personnel carrier into Harvard Square Tuesday in what was billed as an assault on the Eastern Liberal Establishment. Except for a brief skirmish with some Indians, the actor was a hit with wisecracking . Harvard students he had come to debate. The Harvard Lampoon, a humor magazine, challenged Wayne’s "unsurpassed greatness in the guts department” and dared him to premiere his new detective movie McQ in Harvard Square. Wayne, a political conservative known for his Westerns and war movies, accepted. Dressed in a grey topcoat and carrying the unloaded and inoperative gun, Wayne sti^ in the hatch of a tanklike personnel carrier that rumbled from Lampoon headquarters to the movie theatre. Wayne grinned, handed out autographs and dodged snowballs lobbed from the windows of Harvard dormitories. Thousands cheered in the student shopping disirict while Lampoon staffers outfitted as cowboys and Keystone Cops fired toy guns and pranced about. Wayne stepped smiling once when Indian protesters leaped in front of his armored vehicle. Police removed the Indians and there were no arrests. 'The Indians said they were protesting their depiction in Wayne movies, where they always lost their fights with the white man. Inside the theatre, he held a hght-hearted debate with the mostly under-25 audience, long-haired and dressed in dungarees. Some of the questions and answers Q. “What do you Uiink of women’s lib?” A. ‘I Uunk they have a right to work anywhere they want to (long pause) as long as Uwy have dinner ready when we want It.” Q “Has President Nixon ever given you any suggestions for your movies?” A “No, they’ve all been successful.” Q. "Why don’t you use midgets in your movies?" A “Because Uiey’re toohard to hit.” IDEAL FOR SPORT The Laurentian Mountains are an ideal r«gi«ii for outdoor sport and «very CMMClvabK form of outdoor activities can be enjoyed then.
