Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Fort Macleod has a great deal going for it says tourism chief By JEAN SWIIIART HeraM Newi Service FORT MACLEOD "Fort Macleod means history, tour- ism, warm southerly winds friendliness and hospitality" These are the Impressions of Tourism Minister Bob Dowling. Speaking to 200 people at the recent annual chamber of com- merce meeting, the minister was mainly concerned about tourism in connection with the centennial celebrations of 1973 and 1974. Next year will mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the North West Mounted Police and the follow- ing year will commemorate its arrival here. "Every place is different. People are different. The coun- try is different. The north is rugged. Fort Macleod is a com- munity of free enterprise. You have the Fort Museum. It has been hard work, but it has paid off. The Fort wlli play a major role in the centennial celebra- tions. But friendliness and hos- pitality are more important." He referred to Alberta as the last home of the real west. "With the police coming here first; this is where the taming of the west really began. It has left Alberta with a viable tour- ist Major tourist attractions in the province are the Nikkt: Yuko Garden at Lethbridge; the Calgary Stampede and Klondike Days, Edmonton. "The Fort Museum ranks among them as a great tourist attraction." Albertans travel outside their own province. Mr. Dowl i n g said It is the responsibility of all Albertans and particularly his office to convince Albertans to know then- province. I believe fantastic things are happening. The highways must be built through the small towns in order to expose them to tourists; they must be tour- ist roads." It is hoped, the minister said, that Alberta will be the home of the 1973 RCMP celebrations, the' 1975 Winter G a re e s and hopefully the 197B Common- wealth Games. The department of tourism Is related to all phases of: govern- ment since it is just a branch of government.
