Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, January 17, 1974 ^Tlic Herald-- Family Pension^ insurance discrimination covered by gov^t TORONTO (CP) - Sex discrimination in pension and insurance plans will be one area covered in equal rights legislation the federal government will introduce this year, Labor Minister John Munro told the advisory council on the status of women this week. He told the council, an advisory group to the government, that a controversial section of previous legislation forbidding discrimination on grounds of sex and marital status in employment has been reviewed and changed.

PHONE: 32t-76M The section, which was included in a 1972 proposed amendment to the Canada Labor Code, excluded pensions and insurance plans from laws preventing discrimination. That amendment died on the Commons order paper when the 1972 election was called. The minister said the section had been "thoroughly reviewed" and will be included in the "egalitarian rights" legislation that Justice Minister Otto Lang said recently would be introduced into Parliament this year. Mr. Muhro added that the, proposed law would come' before Parliament "very early in the new session . . . and we hope to have it in operation later this year." In Ottawa, Sylva Gelber, director of the women's bureau, said she could not reveal the terms of the proposed legislation but they were "more progressive" than those in the 1972 bill. The minister had made a commitment "in principle" that discrimination would be prohibited, she added. Many women's groups have been seeking equality with men in pension plans. In the Canada Pension Plan, for example, the husbands of female workers cannot receive survivors' benefits unless the male is disabled and dependent upon her. Mr. Munro's speech was released to the press in advance.

She is part of an enforcement campaign that began in November. Police are using women troopers, unmarked cars, concealed radar and citizen band radios to enforce the 55-mile-an-hour speed limit. Trooper Booze, 24, demonstrated earlier this month just before truckers began a shutdown protest over low speed limits and high fuel prices. She took after a rig heading west on the Pennsylvania Turnpike which had passed her blue sedan. She clocked the driver at 70 m.p.h. on her speedometer for the required .4 of a mile. She then accelerated to 85 m.p.h., removed her shawl and put on her police hat. She caught the truck and honked the driver off the road. The angry trucker claimed he was trying to deliver his load of lobster before a trucking shutdown began at midnight. He got a $15 citation.

"We've got a female Smokey (trooper) out there," said one driver. "She's already stopped one 18-wheeler. She'll be right back out there. "She's at milepost 158," said another. "That's Honey Bear (the truckers' code name for Trooper Booze). She got me last week." "There's nothing honey about that bear." Trooper Booze joined the conversation: "You got that female Smokey." "Hey, Momma Bear, why are you picking on the truckers?" said a trucker. "We're just going along nice." Trooper Booze: "65-to-70 isn't legal." Then she explained her job. "It's a game of cat and mouse. We're the cat and they're the mouse. They keep tabs on us. We keep tabs on them."

ANSWERS ON REVERSE PAGE k after you see your doctor bring your prescription to Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: The letter signed "Another Sad Mother" must have hit a million mothers where they live - and at least that many daughters. I went through the same thing, only worse. My boyfriend was even more hopeless than her daughter's, Her guy was just a lazy slob who couldn't hold a job. My Joey was a junkie, wanted by the police for stealing, mugging and whatever else junkies have to do to support their habit. My mother kept threatening to turn me in to the police for keeping company with him. I begged her not to. Finally she compromised and told my high school principal. My life became a living hell. I kept fighting everyone who tried to break us up. The harder they tried, the more I defended Joey. As I look back I see what pressure can do to a normal person. It nearly drove me insane. When Mom finally gave up and let me alone I decided to drop Joey. The day I did that,, my life took a turn for the better. I am now a sophomore in college. I can't believe that was me back there. I must have been crazy. Today I wouldn't go near a guy who shoots up. But I had to decide on my own what to do with my life. I couldn't let anybody do it for me. - Got It All Together Dear Together: I received a blizzard of letters from girls who had similar experiences. It was no easy job selecting the best letter to print. Thanks to all who wrote. Dear Ann Landers: I had a sister-in-law just like "Rattled" and it was you who helped me solve the problem. I refer to the dear friends and relatives who simply won't stay out of your kitchen when you are entertaining. You ran a poem in your column a long time back and suggested I tack it over the sink. I did better than that. I had my artistic daughter make a canvas and I did it up in needlepoint. It is now handsomely framed and hanging on my kitchen wall.

In case you've forgotten it, Ann, here it is: Please stay away from my kitchen, From my dishwashing, cooking and such. You were kind to have offered to help me And I do want to thank you so much. I hope you won't think me ungracious When I ask that you leave me alone. For my kitchen is not very spacious And my system is strictly my own. So please stay out of my kitchen. It may well prevent a few wars. And when I am invited to your house, I promise to stay out of yours. - An Admirer Dear Ad: Thanks a lot. I HAD forgotten. It was good of you to remind me.
