Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE 1ETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, July 10, 1971 Economic base need to map north destiny XNTJVTK, N.W.T. (CP) The native people of northern Can- ada need an economic base to map out their own destiny, Op- position Leader Robert Stanfielct was told Friday during his first visit to the Canadian Arctic. This base must come from the federal government in the form of a cash settlement for aborigi- nal Iftd rights and from a Bhare of mineral rights in the Northwest Territories, the Com- mittee for Original People's En- titlement told the Progressive Conservative leader. The committee said 72 per cent of the native people in the territories are unemployed and white men from the south are given preference in filling avail- able jobs. Mr. Stanfield said the prob- lems of the native people are complex and he could offer no easy solutions. He said he would have to be convinced that a cash settle- THINKS NIXON AGNEW CAN'T WIN IN '72 Paul N.

QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg, Washroom Peeping Tom i fined WINNIPEG (CP) A 33- vear-old Winnipeg man with a penchant for hiding in the cu- bicles of women's washrooms, awaiting the arrival of pa- trons, was fined here. Crown counsel Hymie Wein- stein said the man, who pleaded guilty to being disor- derly in a place to which there is public access, was fined on a similar charge only two days earlier. "If he walked in and found a woman wrestler in there, it might cure him more than all the courts and Mr. Weinstera said. Record crowd at stampede CALGARY (CP) A record persons attended the second day of the Calgary Stampede Friday afier a dis- appointing opening-day crowd of Stampede official! said the Friday crowd was well above the 1970 mark of which also was the previous record. The two-day total now is 183 compared with the 1970 corresponding figure of 142, 937. The record for a single day was the last day of the 1966 stampede when persons surged through the gates and the record total is set in 1968. ment would be in the best inter- ests of tlie Indians, EsH- TIOS and Metis in the N.W.T. Mr. Stanfield, who was greeted by 85-degree tempera- lures on Ills first trip across the Arctic Circle, heard about other northern problems from Inuvik town officials and the Inuvik Environmental Control Commit tee. It told him that poor planning and poor road layout have helped create sewage and water problems for the town of 'Picture a town dump beside one of the large unpolluted riv- ers, the Mackenzie, left in Can- ada in which human excretia is thrown in plastic bags from families." Also, raw sewage from an above-ground pipeline system built because of problems with permafrost, goes directly into the river. The committee said the fed- eral government should investi- gate sewage and garbage dis- posal and should provide funds for proper recycling plants, to addition, no northern settle- ments should be started without first having adequate sewage facilities, it said. CAN'T OBTAIN RIGHTS Mayor Dick Hill said the ter- ritorial government claims it has not received full control over land from the federal gov- ernment and government bu- reaucracy is hurting the town. Inuvik has been unable to ob- tain rights to land on which to expand, he said. If land was available, the town could sell it and use the profit to pave streets, provide better water and sewage facili- ties and other services. Inuvik is a boom town created by oil exploration, he said, and the boom may be over by the time the various governments untangle the land snare. Mr. Stanfield, who arrived In the N.W.T. Thursday on a five- day tour of the territories and the Yukon, also visited hw> pipeline research stations. On Friday night, Mr. Stanfield flew 600 miles by chartered air- craft across the Mackenzie Mountains to Whitehorse, capi- tal of the Yukon. Today he meets with Yukon organiza- tions. On Monday he flies to Vancouver and then starts a tour of the Orient. ROTHMANS CALENDAR OF COMING EVENTS KwmBDily Then Hsnn I Rubnira Special ErenS Canwan now.

Geology job prospects excellent EDMONTON (CP) Em- ployment prospects in the field of geology are excellent com- pared with those in many other graduate fields, says Dr. Rich- ard Lambert, chairman of the University of Alberta's geology epartment. Higher qualifications are be ng demanded as the Job situa. ion becomes more competi- jve, but last year the depart- ment could have placed more people in jobs than were avail- able, he said in an interview. Dr. Lambert said employ- ment in geology has been no- toriously cyclic in the last 20 years, although industry now the problem and fu ure lay-offs are not likely to severe. He said the petroleum tadus- y has probably reached jatcau hi the growth of em- )loyment opportunities, b u here is a marked shortage of well qualified geological en gineers and mining geologists.

Meanwhile, the Quebec Agri- cultural Marketing Board said It will seize Manitoba eggs re- ported en route to Quebec if shipments can be found. Bob Feldman, representing Manitoba egg producers, an- nounced in Winnipeg that the ;s were being shipped openly o Quebec and other provinces o test a recent Supreme Court of Canada ruling that inter-pro- vincial trade restrictions are il- egal. He said the Manitoba produc- ers "don't anticipate any diffi- culty anywhere." However, a spokesman Quebec marketing board said the eggs will be seized "il we can find them." In accordance with regula- tions of the provincially-oper- ated egg marketing board, the Manitoba eggs would be graded and sold, with resulting profits either retained by the board or handed back to producers. But, since another regulation stipulates that only those pro- ducers who co-operate with the board will be paid, it appears the Manitoba eggmen will be out of luck. Meanwhile two Montreal newspapers say representa- tives of four provinces and the Federal government will meet In Montreal Monday in an at- tempt to settle the continuing chhicken-and-egg war. The Montreal Star and The Gazette say Quebec, Manitoba, Ontario, Nova Scotia and Ot- tawa will be represented at the closed-door meeting. The topic of the meeting, re- ported, to be called by Quebec, is described as "how everyone can arrive at a fair share of the chicken-and-egg markets without the current ruinous competition and legislative measures against each other." "This a Quebec government source is quoted as saying, "will start on the premise that the recent Su- preme Court of Canada deci- sion brought about by a Mani- toba action Is not to be regard- ed as a guideline for settle- ment. "It is hoped that an agree- ment can be negotiated amica- bly that will end any further need for recourse to the courts."
