Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THI lETHBHIOOl HttAlD January !l, Job-creating measures highlight throne speech VICTORIA (CP) The 1972 session of the British Columbia legislature opened Thursday with the speech from the throne promising job-creating mea- sures to help reduce the unem- ployment rate. Opposition Leader Dave Bar- rett promptly dismissed the promise, saying the govern- ment's present job opportunities program hns been "only 4.6 per cent successful." He was referring lo a recent report that only 4.6 per cent of the unemployed who applied for work under the scheme have found work. Mr. Barrett joined Liberal Leader Dr. Pat MeGeer and Dr. S'cott Wallace, the lone Progres- sive Conservative member in the house, in describing the throne speech as "a disappoint- ment." The speech, drafter by the So- cial Credit administration of Premier Bennett and read by Lieutenant-Governor John R. Nicholson, gave no indication of whether the government is plan- ning to call an election before the year Is out. Such an Indication is likely to come from the premier's budget speech scheduled for Feb. 4 Alcohol content of beer regulated TORONTO (CP) The fed- eral food and drug directorate has announced new guidelines designed to make standard the alcohol content and product des- ignations of Canadian beer. Outlined in an order-ln-council published in the Canada Gazette in early December, the new guidelines set out the designa- tion for brewery products and the upper and lower alcohol content requirements for each category. The categories and limits are: light beer 1.2 to Z.5 per cent Touring Paris pianist killed in car crash RENFREW, Ont. (CP) A world-renowned pianist was one of three persons killed Thursday in a two-car collision about 12 miles west of here. Dead are Jean Claude Casa- desus, 44, of Paris, France, Robert Trudel, 45, and Us wife Lorette, of Orleans, Ont. Gordon Moshuk, 27, of Deep River, Ont., driver of the car in which Mr. Casadesus was rid- ing, is in critical condition in Ottawa hospital. Provincial police said the ac- cident happened on Highway 17 and that Mr. Casadesus was travelling to Ottawa from Deep River, where he had just com- pleted a concert engagement. He is survived by his parents, Robert and Gaby Casadesus, also well-known Paris pianists. Police said Mr. Moshuk ap- parently attempted to pass an- other vehicle and collided bead- on with the Trudel car. alcohol by volume; beer, ale, porter and stout 2.6 to 5.5 per cent; and malt liquor 5.6 to 8.5 per cent. A spokesman for the Brewers Association of Canada in Ottawa said all the new guidelines are expected to be in force by early June. The move follows two years of discussions between tie directo- rate and Canadian brewing firms. Breweries say they are hopeful it will lead to simplifica- tion of beer marketing across the country. The association spokesman said that alcohol by volume and alcohol by weight are just two different ways of explaining the same thing. In Ontario, he added, most beer averages about five per cent alcohol by volume or four per cent alcohol by weight; but in both cases the alcoholic content of the beer is the same. He also said Canadian beer is "slightly stronger" than United States beer. I when tax cuts and other goodies for the electorate would serv as a hint that an election is forthcoming. Besides promising job Ing measures involving the B.C Hydro and Power Authority, the Pacific Great Eastern Railway housing, forest and park deve opment and protection of th ecology, the throne speech promised: whole question of ten- ure for university faculty mem bers will be reviewed by a legis lative committee. to the Publi Schools Act and to the prov inee's labor legislation will be presented. in the Litter Act to plug some loopholes will be al tempted. reform commission n- covering exproprtatto and debit-creditor relationships will be tabled in the house for study.
