Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Hope home burns Firemen shoot water stream on born ing Bob Hope hcme which had been under construction on a Palm Springs hilltop at a cost in excess of a million dollars. It was to be completed Christmas. TF report criticized OTTAWA CCP) A com- mittee report recommending tighter controls for television advertising aimed at children was thrown together with "un- seemly baste" in a single after- noon, the Commons was told Tuesday. The criticism came from J. Patrick Nowlan Valley) shortly before the House voted to adopt the report, Lougheed: West has lots going CALGARY (CP) Follow- ing is a partial text of Alberta Premier Peter Lougbeed's opening remarks to the West- em Economic Opportunities Conference: The people of Western Canada feel strongly that they could contribute much more to Confederation if certain exist- ing federal policies were alter- ed so that the talents and ener- gies of Western Canadians could be more meaningfully ap- plied to the abundant resources of the western region which would significantly strengthen the nation as a whole and, in particular, its position in world trade. Specifically this will require joint policies which encourage processing of our raw mater- ials upstream at the and hence, spreading of job opportunities to regions other than central Canada. The nsal remwsf of tho CALGARY (CP) Following ine reai request tne west, _ is not special privilege but fore to the economic, social, and cultural development of Can- ada. We want to use your term Mr. Prime Minister be a full part of the Canadian team! So a change in attitude to- wards the West is required by our national government and now. The calling of the confer- ence is an important beginning but not in itself enough it will be the response of the fed- eral government to our com- mon proposals that will deter- mine tne course of this confer- ence. tabled July 16 by Ralph Stewart chairman of tbe Commons broadcasting com- mittee. Mr. Nowlan, a member of the committee, said he was out of town when the report was drafted but found out later that it was written during one after- noon. Its recommendations make tbe committee's lead-up work "rather he said. The report urges the Cana- dian Radio-Television Commis- sion to control TV advertising to prevent a direct appeal to children in commercials. Sir. Stewart, asking the House to adopt tbe report, said some advertising exploits cnfl dren and the committee be- lieves this to be undesirable. MISSED CHANCE Mr. Nowlan said the refer- ence to exploitation could be ap- plied to all advertising and the committee missed "a golden op- portunity" by not calling for re- moval of all commercials from CBC television. "If it is to act as a public net- work, I do not think there should be advertising The state ikays for the system." It's time tor new deal-Barrett the removal of unnecessary ob- stacles to growth: to use a western term "don't fence us FEEE FRUSTRATED The concerns of the West are more than a matter of dollars, or job security, or even eco- nomic opportunity important as these are it's the feeling of western Canadians that we have a great deal going for us in the West but that we feel frustrated in reaching out for our potential because we sense such potential is not fully un- derstood or appreciated in cen- tral Canada and hence, we are thwarted by federal govern- ment policies The West is changing and dra- matically it is literally burst- ing with talent with and with confidence! The West can be turned on or turned off. The attitude and sensitivity of the national government-to- wards the people of the west- em region and towards, their elected governments will in this federal state in our view thus be the key question. If there is a continued lack of ap- preciation of the diverse talents of the unique' spirit of the West then the resentment of. Canadians towards their national government and towards central Canadian di- rected institutions will unfort- unately persist and perhaps even grow. If on the other hand we have reached that stage of national maturity that we an wherever we live- Toronto Chicoutimi or Red Deer can took beyond our limited community, provincial and cultural horizons to an parts of Canada then west- ern Canadians will contribute in response as never be-; is a partial tert of British Col- umbia Premier Dave Barrett's opening remarks to the West- ern Economic Opportunities Conference: The progress of development in Canada has been from east to west. From very early in our country's development the eco- nomic, financial and tax poli- cies of the federal government favored and assisted the con- centration of the nation's busi- ness and industrial activity in central Canada. Examples are national tariff policy which has favored the development of sec- ondary industry in central Can- ada; a transportation policy that discriminates against the movement of finished products from west to east but encour- ages the opposite; incentive programs to industry which give the lion's share to the well- established, self-satisfied indus- tries of central Canada. TIME FOR CHANGE These are just but three ex- amples there are many more Unfortunately, present day federal government policies still encourage the concentra- tion of the country's business, industry and financial capita] (and it is the latter that I am concerned with) in central Canada. It is now time to remove the structures that impede the development of regional finan- cial institutions in the West It is now time to alter federal government policies which for 100 years have worked against the allocation of financial re- sources to the western region while tbe rich financial institu- tions based in the east get rich- At present, tbe banking in- dustry has all tbe characteris- tics of a tigbily-controUed oJigo- STILL SELLING FOR LESS!

Tbe banks sell an essen- tially undifferentiated product banking services and the barriers to entering tbe bank- ing business, in tbe form of ini- tial capitalization and problems of securing appropriate finan- cial contacts and consumer loy- alties are formidable. Price competition is almost non-exist- ent And so what do tbe provinces ask for to rectify the present situation as far as the subject of financial resources is con- cerned? L A whole change of attitude on tbe part of tbe federal gov- ernment toward tbe West and the great potential it has if fin- ancial resources are properly mobilized to achieve objectives. I hope the recent pronouncements of tbe prime minister in tbe City of Vancouv- er about recognizing at last the problems of the West is a genu- ine and sincere indication of a change of attitude on tbe past ?f tbe federal government asd not merely a death-bed repen- e uliicfa will be disavowed f tbe patient recovers. 2. Changes in federal ment policies so as to right the imbalance that sffll favors an! fosters the concentration of inancial resources in cmiUyl Canada. 3. Amendments to the Sank Act so as to permit pro- vircial governments as repre- senlalires of the people in their provinces to invest hi tbe equi- y stock of chartered with fan voting rights. WodMtday, July 25, 1971 THE UTHMIDOf HBU10 17 School tax deduction plan urged CALGARY (CP) The Can- adian School Trustee! Associa- tion (CSTA) is asking the gov- ernment for financial measures that will aflow people to de- duct school taxes from their taxable income, an association spokesman said yesterday. Harald Gunderson, president of the Alberta School Trus- tees Association and a director of the CSTA, said in a news re- lease that the national associa- tion made its request in a let- ter to Finance Minister John Turner. He said afl members of par- liament have been asked to support the association in its request. Easier for Canadians to enter U.S. WASHINGTON be Canadian immigrants to the United States would be treated exactly the same as any others a limit of a year a bill approved Tues- day by the judiciary committee of the House of Representatives. The immediate effect, com- mittee officials said later, would be to make it easier for Canadian professionals and skilled workmen to enter the U.S. as immigrants. However, the bill must first be approved by the full House and a similar bill must pass the Senate. Committee sources said House approval seems likely this fall, but the Senate has shown no indication yet when it would be prepared to study the matter. The bill results from exten- sive bearings' of a subcom- mittee on immigration, which rejected a suggestion from the Nixon administration that Can- ada and Mexico be given spe- cial consideration, with a person limit for each. Immigration from Canada has fallen dramatically since the current law was enacted In 1965. From a modem peak of in the mid-1960s, it dropped to about last year. GAVE UP Among factors contributing to the drop was the fact mat Ca- nadians were lumped with the rest of the Western Hemisphere under a total quota of immigrants. A Canadian engi- neer being transferred to the U.S. by his company found him. self competing for admission with unskilled laborers from Latin America and the Carib- bean-aid waiting up to two years for a visa. Many Cana- dians gave up the attempt. Asked why tte subcommittee had rejected tha proposed (KMVperson limits for Canada and Mexico, Entires sold: "The subcommittee felt very that they wanted to do away en- tirely, with tiie last vestiges of discrimination on the baste of national origin."
