Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THt imiBRIDCE HERALD Saturday, July 7, 1973 RCMP power-hungry, chief claims B.C. police VICTORIA (CP) The RCMP was described Thursday "a power-hungry con- glomerate, anxious to get their bands on anything they can" and criticized for hard-sell tech- niques in trying to sign up mu- nicipalities with their own local police forces. Frazer MacDonald of Esqui- mau police force and the presi- dent of the British Columbia Federation of Peace Officers, told the annual meeting of the Canadian Police Association (CPA) of an attempted "takeo- ver" by the RCMP of the five man municipal force in nearby Central Saanich. All provinces but Ontario and have their own provincial police to maintain law and order in rural areas and smaller con- cerned about RCMP intentions toward, smaller municipal orfces, be said. "We've successfully defeated them he told about 60 delegates to the CPA meeting, "They've pulled in their horns." About RCMP officers in B.C. are engaged in municipal police work, Mr. MacDonald said, with the largest detach- 170 the municipality of Bumaby, near Vancouver, which has a popu- lation of Earlier this year, the RCMP tried to persuade Central Saan- ich to switch to the RCMP.

He was 88. His daughter, Lotte, said to- day he died in his sleep Friday afternoon. His health had begun to fail rapidly a few weeks ago. A giant of a man, he fought back to active work after an op- eration in 1939 to remove a brain tumor which left his right side paralysed. He managed to conduct again in the autumn of then went on to delight audiences with his interpretations of the Mozart, Brahms, Bruckner, Wagner and Mahler. Toe son of a Jewish business- man, Klemperer married opera anger Johanna Geissler in 1919. She died in 1956. CHILDREN PRESENT Their two children, Lotte, 49, and Werner, 53, a film and tele- vision actor in tie United States, were at his bedside when he died. He was replaced as principal conductor of London's new Pbil- hannonia Orchestra in March this year after 14 years. Last year he announced bis decision to retire, saying he Pilot accused WASHINGTON (AP) The United States Air Force has charged a pilot with refusing to obey an order to fly a B-52 bombing run over Cambodia two weeks ago.

But, following the success of a Beethoven series on tele- vision, be later agreed to con- duct a further series with the Philharmonia, of which he was honorary president. Born in Breslau, Germany, May 14, -1885, Otto Klemperer was a giant in every way. His six-foot five-inch frame dwarfee such contemporary musician: as Schoenberg, Toscanini anc Kleiber. In courage, too, he was a gi- ant, fighting back to active work after an operation whicii left his righTside paralysed, to give the world another 25 years of music which formed a direcl link between the present day and such composers as friends, Gustav Mahler and Richard Strauss. He grew up in Hamburg, went to conservatories in Frankfurt and Berlin and by the time he was 20 showed that bis future was in conducting He made his debut in 1905 in a production of Offenbach's Or- pheus in the Underworld. Klemperer's most productive period came in 1927 when he be- came director of Berlin's KroH Opera, where, for four years an experimental company flou- rished under him. After the Nazis came to power in 1933, Klemperer was dismissed from his post as con- ductor of the Berlin Staatsoper because of bis Jewish origins. He fled to Austria and Switzer- land, where he made his home, In 1939, be was left paralysed after an operation for the re- moval of a brain tumor. But he managed to conduct again tbe following year and gave con- certs in the United States until the end of the war. Returning to Europe in 1946, he was appointed musical direc- tor of tbe Budapest Opera, where he worked for three years.

They were Invited by Central Saanich council to prepare a submission, and he said they did a "really first-class job." They had surveys and mile- age charts and graphs showing how quickly RCMP could re- spond to emergencies, films and slides, b esaid. "A member of council told us if be hadn't bad his head screwed on right, he would have believed what they were saying." The federation and the Cen- tral Saanich force countered the ROMP bid with a two-mch-ttoick submission pointing out defi- ciencies hi their arguments. "We have to do a sell-job our- said Mr. MacDonald. The federation also managed to obtain "from friends" in the attorney-general's department here a copy of a contract be- tween the RCMP and a typical municipality, outlining the terms of service and how much of their pay comes out of mu- nicipal coffers. This disclosure aroused a great deal of interest among CPA members from other parts o! Canada who have been trying to find out how big a subsidy is paid to the RCMP for policing municipalities so small munici- pal forces could apply for the same. LOYAL TO FORCE Mr. MacDonald said they told Central Saanich that the RCMP "as police, they're loyal to the force, they're not concerned with the that the RCMP has a policy of consoli- dating small isolated detach- would mean clos- ing the local police that there was no guarantee that fn RCMP officer would stay any length oftime in the community.

Liberals fear they got blackeye in tough hilingualism scrap By VICTOR MACROS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Now that the dust has settled on the bili- ngualism debate in the house oi commons an parties have hac an opportunity to assess the im- pact of that revived con- troversy. The Conservatives are now convinced that they lost little. In fact they may have gained across the country because there was a break in their ranks, a fact that was noted and appreciated hi the west. The Social Crediters believe they gamed support in Quebec as a result of the debate. Tbe New Democratic Party emerged from the fray con- fident they had held their own, lost no support and gained little. Th e Liberals strangely enough, now are- wondering if they did not suffer the worst damage as a result of the re- opening of tiie bilingual! battle. One prominent party sunmunff ft said: "Look at it this way. did we gam by it. In fact our French Canadian supporters Feel we retreated on the issue. We were not toogfa enough in pushing for bflmguaMsm in the government on the original tar- jet dates. They think we went soft in the face of pressures from the Anglophones." MAT HAVE BACKFIRED K is ironic that a political manoeuvre engineered by Mme Minister Pierre Trudeau o emphasize tbe split in tbe Progressive Conservative ranks over bilingualism, may have backfired. The various parties taking heir soundings across tbe coun- try have got reactions that in- dicate most Canadians put down the bilingualism resolu- ion in the house as "more poli- icking in parliament." No mat- ter bow wen inteotkmed the >rime minister may have been m Ms determination to reaffirm Ihe basic principles of the Offi- cial Languages act it is being dismissed as a political ploy. That may be a cynical reac- tion among tbe who can blame them for becom- ism issue. It would have been far better had the Trudeau gov- ernment left the issue alone. On that point there appears to be general agreement among all backbenchers. GUT ISSUE FOR PM But this is a gut issue for tbe prime minister. He determined early in this thinking about the election re- he would introduce a resolution into the house reaffir- ming the principles of the Lan- guages act. He did and he stir- red up the inevitable storm in his own caucus as well as in toe commons. Progressive Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield is an honorable man and refused to exploit the language issue to his advantage. He took the proper stand as he saw it reaffirming his support of bilingualism. As a responsible national political leader he had no other choice if tins country is to be encouraged to hang together. However John Diefenbaker, a former prime minister from out of the west, disliked the politi- cal manoeuvrings of the present prime minister on this issue and said so, bluntly. He can't resist springing to the attack when he sees a Grit posing as "holier than He was sus- picious of the motives of tbe mi- nority government. NOT ANTI-GOVERNMENT Mr. Diefenbaker it must be remembered was re-elected prime minister in 1958 with the largest majority in the history of Canadian parliaments. He captured SO Quebec con- stituencies including several seats in that province that had not voted Tory for generations. He recalled he had always had a "wonderful welcome" in French Canada. He quite properly and justifia- bly resents anyone suggesting be is anti-Quebec. Mr. Diefenbaker attacked the philosophy of the bilingualism legislation. When the vote came there were 16 rebels in the Tory They had been encour- aged by the old veteran Die- fenbaker to take a stan against the "conniving' Trudeau resolution. Strangely by helping bring about tha party split the old "chief" coulc well have strengthened the Tories chances to win a major ity in the nest election. Now the country settles down once again to learn to live wit bilingualism. There win always be those within the provinces who do not like nor support tbe idea of bilingualism. This is sti a free country and they have tbe right to dissent. They have seen that in the Tory camp mere are still some dissenters and they can throw their 'sup port to that party when the time comes. Astute Liberals assessing the political picture realize this f ac of life in Canada and ruefully have to accept it They bea their breasts and cry "shame shame" while pundits overreac by suggesting we should all "grieve for StaafieW and Can- s Concerned minister watche U.S. export controls closely mg cynical about tbe bilingual-1 bers warned.

There is worry in Canada that the American moves wffl force up tbe prices of bacon and eggs, and beef and other food product.

Kent Rowley of the Council of Canadian Unions said today. In an address to delegates to the organization's fifth annual meeting, Mr. Rowley said there are more than workers in Canadian unions that could be united around a common centre. "Canadian labor must play its rightful role, denied it up to now, by uniting its ranks to win not only wages and union con- tracts, but to build a just and humane said the labor veteran from Brantford, Ont. "Canadian labor must do its historic duty by turning Canada from an appendage of -Ameri- can big business and imperial greed into a nation of peace and human progress." Until now, the CCU has not made a great contribution in the councils of government, Mr. Rowley said, but the time has come to consider a legislative program. Such a program should con- sider placing the resource in- dustries under public own- ership, be said. The program could demand establishment of an equitable tax system, plan fundamental social projects to solve eco- nomic chaos and place housing problems in the hands of public boards, he told the meeting. As for the CCU itself, Mr. Rowley said, action must be taken on organization. He said the CCU, with a membership of more than must consider a plan of union affiliation to avoid conflict b the future. "The top leaders of the Amer- ican unions in Canada do not really believe in the independ- ence of this country. They ac- cept the colonial status that their situation implies. In order to free this country from the American empire and all the exploitation that implies, we must establish our national identity." A text of his remarks was is- sued in advance. Defrocking decision invalid NICOSIA (AP) A major sy- nod of the Eastern Greek Ortho- dox Church declared mvalid Friday a decision by three Cy- priot bishops to defrock Arch- bishop Makarios, president of Cyprus. The bishops replied Imme- diately that they did not recog- nize the synod, which was con- vened by Makarios to try tbe bishops on charges of plotting, creating a schism and staging illegal assemblies. It was not immediately clear what action would be taken against tbe bishops. They could be defrocked. The defendants are Bishops Gennadios of Paphos, Anthimos of Kitium and Kyprianos of Ky- renia, who form the synod of the Church of Cyprus. They def- rocked Makarios last April on the grounds be had violated church law by also serving as president of Cyprus. McVINNIE BROS.
