Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, July 3, 1971 THE lETHBRIDSE HIRAID 9 Parliamentary Notebook Why was Liberal dumped? By DAVE McINTOSH OTTAWA (CP) Why was Grant Deachman dumped as chairman of the Liberal cau- cus? The question is a subject speculation among all MPs, especially Liberals. Mr. Deachman, veteran MP for Vancouver Quadra, in his year as chairman re-instituted the old system of putting cabi- net ministers on the caucus car- pet to defend their policies and answer tough questions. He made a point of chasing up ministers who habitually skip caucus and had a good deal of success in persuading them to attend. However, speculation that Mr. Deachman was dumped because he offended some members of the cabinet by twisting their arms to attend caucus docs not. appear entirely accurate. Jean Roy, MP for Timmins for three years and the new chairman, said in an interview he plans to continue the policy of putting cabinet ministers on the spot as much as possible. VOTE SECRET The caucus vote on the choice betwene Mr. Roy and Mr. Deachman was, like all caucus proceedings, secret. Paul St. Pierre, MP for Coast Chilcotin and caucus secretary, declined to give the result. So did all other Liberals. One Liberal MP said the bal lots were destroyed, just as at some Social Credit conventions The vote was reported close however. Before the Deachman regime the Liberal caucus had been bogged down in 1868-69 in committee system. It had set up committees to conform to cabinet committees But there was little interest in the committee system and at tendance fell off sharply. In committees, ministers weren' on the carpet. Mr. Deachman got his col leagues back to the old system of confrontation between cabi net and back-benchers and cau- cus attendance improved spec- tacularly. But some ministers smarted under criticism they eldom tended the Wednesday morn- g caucus meetings. M HAS GOOD RECORD Prime Minister Trudeau is ne of the most faithful atten- ers of caucus. State Secretary erard Pelletier is said to be unong the worst. Up until last year, the caucus hairman was appointed. But in 170, for the first time, the lairman was elected and Mr. eachman was the winner. No decision had been made to have annual or lenmial elections or whether chairmanship should rotate egionally. This year there was only one ominee for each of the posts of Stricter security ordered WASHINGTON (AP) De fence Secretary Melvin R. Lairc announced today he has orderet stricter security measures for protection of classified infor mation following the disclosure of the top-secret Pentagon stud of the Vietnam war. Laird said these measures, be announced later today, woul have "far-reaching action" dealing with the Rand Corp. an the "security compromises which took place." The defence chief made th nnnouncement in a planesid news conference at Andrews Air Borce Base as he set ont on 17-day trip to the Far East. No details were given imme- diately on the new security measures which Laird said ordered into effect Thursda night. The Rand Corp. is a pn vate non-profit "think tank" for which Dr. Daniel Ellsberg fo merly worked. Ellsberg hi said it was he who leaked th secret Pentagon Papers to se' eral newspapers. vice-chairman, treasurer and Tom Lefebvre, Pontiae, Fernand Leblanc, Montreal Laurier, and Mr. St. Pierre. With Mr. Deachman still in the chair, there would have been two executives from Brit- ish Columbia and two from Quebec. There apparently was some feeling that Ontario should have soma representation and Mr. Roy decided to contest the chairmanship. There was no campaigning. Mr. Roy says he has no idea why the Liberals who voted for him did so. But he felt pretty good about the result. In any case, says Mr. Roy, it is absolutely necessary that cabinet ministers attend the weekly caucus meetings for grilling. Ghost in house is good for real-estate values GRANT DEACHMAN Media probe bill OTTAWA (CP) The 1969-70 special Senate inquiry into the mass media headed by Senator Keith Davey spent a total of the senator report- ed in a final accounting to his colleagues. VARIED USES LINDSAY, Ont. (CP) A ghost in the house is good for real-estate value.

QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Copilol Bldg. PROVINCE OF ALBERTA what age of majority means Demon Rum. That seems to be what a lot of people are remembering about lowering the age of majority. But, there's a lot more to being an adult at 18 than being admitted to bars or the right to drink! Because now in Alberta you're an adult at 18, in every sense of the word. think of it this way Basically any law over which the province of Alberta has jurisdiction has been changed so that where "adult" meant those 21 and over, it now means those 18 and over. some examples Now, when you are 18 you may enter into a binding business contract in your own name. Court orders that would be enacted upon an individual attaining the age of 21 (where 21 meant attaining adulthood) now will be enacted when the individual becomes 18. Now, when you are 18 you may marry without the consent of a parent or you may obtain a mortgage to buy a home or buy a car without a co-signer. Being an adult at 18 means execute a will. You may also vote in provincial elections. And, municipal elections where the local council has decide'd to change the appropriate by-law. remember When the age of 18 has been attained the individual is legally responsible for all of his or her actions. Lowering the age of majority. It's Alberta's way to responsible youth. HON. EDGAR GERHART, Attorney General ;
