Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 19, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THt IETHBRIDGE HtRAlD Wedn.idoy, July 19, 1971 Communications report is coming EDMONTON (CP) A west- ern eoimuui'.icnUons policy committee has been agreed on liy cnbinct minislers responsi- ble for communications iji each of Hie Uiree Preii'ic provinces, it was announced today by the Alberta government. The committee will consist of officials from Manitoba, Al- berta and Saskatchewan who will prepare a report for their next meeting in September. The first meeting was held In Winnipeg Monday and was attended by Rtissel Doern, Manitoba public works minis- ter. Alberta's telephones and utilities minister, Len Werry and Saskatchewan minister of telephones and government services, John Brockelbank. The committee Is to identify ,-ii'd document communications areas of common interest to the three provinces, identify provincial positions where common communications ob- jectives are practical and discover other areas of con- cern to individual provinces that can be supported by the other two. As well, the communications officials will form a liaison be- tween provincial governments lo assist other departments with communications matters. Harold Bishop of Alherta has been named chairman. Two members from each province arc yet to be named. EXPANDED In Regina, Mr. Brockelbank said provincial communication systems should be protected and expanded. For example, he said, Sask Tel could carry cable television and computer information. By acting as a cable-TV car- rier, the public utility could prevent private companies from "cream skimming1' by serving only highly populated areas. He said there are many "gray areas" concerning juris- diction in the communications field and the federal govern- ment appears to be moving in and taking complete control. This is of concern to the Prairie ministers who feel there are parts of the commun- ications field which are a nat- ural for public-utility involve- ment. Mr. Brockelbank also said It may be necessary for the prov- ince to take some hand in cable TV content to ensure a local flavor, but he didn't say how that would be accom- plished. re-Lain its village status.

Mr. Quilt, 55, died Nov. 30 from peritonitis caused by a ruptured bowel. A Williams Lake coroner's jury ruled in January that his death was un- natural and accidental but the first Inquest was quashed by the British Columbia Supreme Court because of an "associa- tion" between two jury mem- bers and the RCMP. Mrs. Quilt said two RCMP officers, one in uniform and one in plainclothes, approach- ed the pickup ti-uck in which the Quilt family had been rid- ing when It was stopped on the highway 20 miles east of Alexis Creek in the Chilcotin area of central B.C. She said the two "looked mad." She said the officer in plainclothes pulled her sleep- ing husband from the driver's seat, jumped on him, and yell- ed: "Get up, you son of s bitch" She said the officer jumped on her husband "quite a few landing with both feet in the area of his waist and on his head.
