Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta It THI UTHBRIDCE HIRAID Seturday, July 7, 1979 of L never asked LCC to help build theatre9 The University of Leth- bridge has never asked that Lethbridge Community Col- lege, approve the joint use or share the cost of the univer- sity's proposed multi-purpose theatre, says the university's president. Dr. W. E- Beckel said Fri- day a letter to the LCC board of governors from U of L physical plant co-ordinator R. F. Comstock "merely explain- ed that the U of L was pro- ceeding with the theatre de- sign and wished to know if the LCC would have any interest in future use of the building." The LCC board Wednesday decided it wasn't interested. And chairman Bob Babki pre- dicted the venture would nev- er be approved by the govern- ment. The project received the verbal endorsement of the Lethbridge City Council Tues- day.

The implementation of this policy, followed by all res- taurants contacted by the Herald, is the prerogative of the proprietor. "There is no health regula- tion on dress in public local medical health officer, Dr. A. A. Byrne, says. He added that most busi- nesses probably follow this policy for "cosmetic reasons." letting people into restaur- ants without shoes and shirts certainly does not add to the place. Many other customers would probably object, ha explained. The problem of customers objecting of other patrons, in advanced stages of undress, is one of the main reasons res- taurants enforce the unwritten law. Two customers interviewed In a downtown restaurant said they would not come into place that allowed shirtless customers. The restaurateur stated that customer objec- tion was their prime concern but added that she fett a of guilt in turning away shirtless men, then serving girls in "baiter tops" and other forms of limited The majority of restaurants which follow the "no shoe, no service" policy do not adver-. tise the fact with signs. "We just quietly tell them at the one owner said. John Wichers, chairman of the Alberta Restaurant Asso- ciation's Lethbridge branch, said the role is the preroga- tive of the individual owner and not association policy. There is no set policy by the Canadian Restaurant Associ- ation either, he said. Most restaurants across Canada, however, enforce similar rulings, even hi re- sort cities. Other reasons for not serv- ing barefoot customers vary, but health, and protection of the owner top the remaining list. A south side restaurant owner said his prime con- cern was tot a shoeless per- son could cut his foot if a glass had recently broken. A north side druggist who enforces the policy said this was also a concern with him but that health was number one. The druggist went to the trouble of contacting the health officer for the prov- ince who told him in a letter that it would be wise to have Long hair no legal basis to turn away customers such a regulation in a drug store. The letter also said a sign could be displayed say- ing "shoes must be worn for health reasons." In- stating Ills position on injury if something fell' on a person's foot or if he step- ped on some glass the drug- gist said the rule protects both the customer and him- self. If a customer injured himself, the owner is libel, he explained. By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer storage and handling, water distribution, sewage discharge and housing condi- tions will be checked more frequently with the addition of another health inspector in the city. I. H. Potter, the city's only health inspector during the past 18 months, says with the aide of Pat Hirsche the de- partment will also be able to follow-up on warnings issued for unsanitary conditions sooner than before. an unsanitary condi- tion is found there should be another check by a health inspector shortly thereafter to ensure the condition has been corrected. Mr. Potter says he was not able to check back .as soon as he should have because of the large territory be had to cover by himself. Mr. Hirsche, originally from Stirling, received his health inspection training at the British Columbia Institute of Technology during the past two years and began his dut- ies with the city this week. Mr. Potter suggests the de- partment has been very for- tunate in receiving the co- operation of most people in keeping the city sanitary. If the health inspections aren't done on a regular basis some people's awareness of sanitary conditions will begin to slip unintentionly so it is the job of the inspection de- partment to keep people aware of any unsanitary con- ditions developing, be says. Even with only one man on the inspection staff the city heatlh unit checked out all complaints of unsanitary con- ditions in the city, Mr. Potter maintains. Most complaints received by the inspection department from the public are valid and warnings are issued to allevi- ate the problem, he says. "By the time people are willing to phone about a sani- tation problem they usu- ally have a valid complaint." The department has had a few complaints about mosqui- tos during the past week and Mr. Potter suggests such com- plaints are normal for this time of year. The city health unit has established a three-mile mos- quito control area city which includes a two-man daily inspection during the mosquito season. The control area system hasn't eliminated the biting pest from the city, but it has made the situation conducive to outdoor living activities such as barbecuing and pie- nicking, Mr. Potter claims. He blames the increase in mosquito population during the first two weeks of July on the wind blowing in the pests from an area beyond the city's three-mile control zone. 'All city mosquito control applications are applied at ground level. Whipple water user trespassing Another water hauler was convicted in Fort Macleod provincial court Friday for trespassing on private prop- erty white attempting to draw water from the controversial Whipple Well. Marvin Vandervalk was fined for ignoring posted no trespassing signs and a barricade erected by Jane Although it is a restaur- ant's right to refuse service on the premise of dress the line must be drawn there, an official of the Alberta Human Rights Commissionsaid Thursday. Reg Newkirk, of Calgary said in a telephone interview owners cannot refuse service on the basis of hair for ex- ample. When a restauranteur over- steps his rights and infringes on the rights of the public, the human rights commission can be called in. The commission replaced the Alberta Unman Bights Branch in January when the Alberta Bill of Rights and its sister bill, the Individuals Rights Protection Act become law. Mr. Newkirk explained that restaurants, as public places, must operate within the bounds of the protection act. Before the legislation, res- taurants had the right to withhold service to anyone. A case in Lethbridge in Septem- ber of last year saw youths with long hair being refused service at a local business. The government could not force the owner to serve be- cause there was no existing law. Now If service Is refused because a man has long hair, service must also be refused to long-haired women or the business will be discrimina- ting on the basis of sex, Mr. Newkirk explained. If an owner of a business refuses service on any grounds not covered by the act, "then it is valid as far as the commission is Mr. Newkirk added. Generally the act provides against refusal of services on the basis of sex, race, color, religious beliefs and ancestral origin.
