Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THI UTHBRIDGE HKAID - Monday, January 25, 1971 Dead cattle stockpile to be probed CALGARY (CP)-Discovery of a pile of dead cattle, estimated at 60 head, outside a Calgary meat processing plant, has sparked an investigation by the city health department. Dr. Leslie Allan, medical officer of health, toured the Canada Packers Ltd. yard Sunday and later promised to start an investigation today. The matter will also be raised at the city council meeting today by Alderman John Kushner, who toured the site with Dr. Allan. Arthur Evans, manager of Canada Packers, said Sunday that the stockpile of cattle was "nothing out of the ordinary." "They are cattle for our inedible rendering operation," he said. "We have an arrangement whereby some of the cat tie that die out in the country are processed for fertilizer. "It has been too cold the last little while to put them through the process because they have been frozen and it is not possible to remove the hide. "In warm weather, they would be handled immediately." Aid. Kushner said he felt the city health department "has been negligent." "I don't give a damn if they are frozen," he said. "I don't know what they died of but that snow around them is going to melt and drain off into our water supply. "Besides, there shouldn't be dead bodies around food processing." He said there had been numerous complaints about the "nauseating smell from the rendering plant." Quebec's future faces unprecedented threats QUEBEC (CP)-Former Pre-m i e r Jean-Jacques Bertrand told a Union Nationale meeting over the weekend that Quebec's future is faced with "unprecedented threats" and said the province is "ripe for a solid constitutional blow" under a new type of Fulton-Favreau formula. He was referring to the federal-provincial constitutional conference to be held in Ottawa Feb. 9.

Security forces threw up roadblocks to prevent reinforcements from joining more than 300 rioters in the Protestant Shankill Road district. Troops fired rubber bullets to hold back the crowd. The rioters attacked the security forces, stoned a police station, buses and cars, and smashed shop windows. But police said the violence was less than on Saturday night when eight policemen and 11 soldiers were wounded in street battles. It was the first Protestant rioting in Belfast in five months. It began when police prevented Protestant soccer fans returning from a game from marching on a Roman Catholic neighborhood. Police and army squads made about 20 arrests in the latest skirmishing. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dtntal Mechanic Metropolitan Blag. 328-4095 Roman Catholics have been rioting in Belfast for the last two weeks, stirred up by agitators from the outlawed Irish Republican Army trying to drive British troops out of Northern Ireland as the first step toward uniting the six northern counties with the Irish Republic to the south. A bomb early today blew in the front of the government social security office in Enniskil-len. No one was injured. Scott retains senate post WASHINGTON (AP) - Sena tor Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania retained the Senate Republican leadership today, defeating 24 to 30 a move to unseat him by Senator Howard H. Baker of Tennessee. Scott's margin over Baker, 45-year-old son-in-law of the late Senator Everett M. Dirksen (Rep. Ill), was almost identical to the 24-to-19 victory the 70-year-old Pennsylvania senator scored over the Tennessee senator in first winning the leader ship in 1969. high on the agenda at the conference. Mr. Bertrand made the remarks in an opening address to closed-door sessions of the party's national council. Notes were delivered to reporters after the meeting. The meeting was called to consider the date of a leadership convention, set for sometime in June. Recalling that Daniel Johnson's Union Nationale Opposition had thwarted an attempt by the 1965 Liberal government to sign an amendment formula with the federal government, Mr. Bertrand cautioned party members to remain on the alert. The amendment formula to which he referred was drafted between 1960-64 by Davie Ful ton, former Conservative justice minister, and one of his Liberal successors, Guy Favreau. It provided that key sections of the constitution could be amended only with the approval of Parliament and all 10 provinces. Other sections could be changed with the approval of provinces containing a majority of the Canadian population. In addition, the federal and provin cial governments could delegate fields of jurisdiction to each other by agreement. Mr. Bertrand suggested there was a link between federal and provincial Liberals-a claim denied by both Liberal parties and said these links had been obvious last fall. Referring to the kidnap crisis in October, he said Quebec was staggered to its foundations. PARTY SOUGHT REFUGE "We saw a Liberal team, short of political know-how, so pitifully prostrated in the first days of the crisis that it had to seek refuge behind the federal government," the UN leader said. "At the time, it was the opposition's duty to back up what was left of the state's authority, but in the long run it is evident that the problems uncovered by the crisis are far from being solved." Referring to the Parti Quebe-cois, Mr. Bertrand said: "We are not going to place our collective future in the hands of inexperienced persons as radical as they are, who don't know what they want." Mr. Bertrand announced he would step down from the party leadership shortly after his party suffered a devastating defeat at the hands of the Liberals in last April's provincial general election. The leadership convention in June will be attended by some 1,300 voting delegates. Mr. Bertrand, 54, was chosen leader following the Sept., 1968, death of then-premier Daniel Johnson and was premier until last April's defeat.

Tory job policy legislation okayed CALGARY (CP) - The Progressive Conservative opposition will introduce legislation requiring companies to give employees "reasonable notice of any close-down or job elimination program," Party Leader Peter Lougheed said Sunday. Mr. Lougheed said that in a computerized survey of 400 of the 1,764 delegates attending the party's annual convention, 89.94 per cent voted in favor of the policy. This vote "pleasantly surprised" him. He said the Conservatives, who hold 10 of the 65 seats in the legislature, will bring in legislation similar to that in Ontario. It requires firms to give employees and the government specific notice of impending layoffs. COMPUTERIZED BALLOT There were other questions on the computerized ballot card distributed at the convention that ended Saturday. Mr. Lougheed said he found the results of 10 questions sig- Bourassa decided on WMA use MONTREAL (CP) - Quebec Premier Robert Bourassa says it was his decision, not Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau's, to use the army and the War Measures Act in last fall's terrorist crisis.

Mr. Bourassa said negotia< tlons had been under way for three days when he asked Prime Minister Trudeau to make available the special as sistance in case it was needed.
