Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tories promise recreational fund CALGARY (CP) The Pro- gressive Conservative Party began releasing bits of its pro- vincial election platform Tues- day and promised a special loan fund to stimulate con- struction of recreational facili- ties. Leader Peter Lougheed told a news conference that im- proved recreational facilities would offset rising crime rates, drug abuse and mental- health problems. The platform, which is to be extended as the Aug. 30 elec- tion approaches, also promised a revised Alberta Bill of Rights that "would put in- dividual rights before every other law of the province.1 BETTER DEAL Mr. Lougheed said his party Boine to jail because he is un-, significant lack of tennis which currently does not give going u> jau I swimming pools and sufficient recognition to resi- Mr. Lougheed, who starts a campaign tour of rural Alberta Wednesday, said metropolitan centres would be given greater economic freedom and autonomy. This would not conflict with plans to promote year-round use of educational facilities, efforts to preserve cultural identities, assistance in public transportation problems, and programs to increase recreational oarticipation. Government studies show courses, he said. During winter, hockey and skating rinks are so crowded some young athletes can only get ice time at 6 a.m. Money spent on such facilities would be a better investment than taking over public utilities as advocated by the New Democratic Party, Mr. Lougheed said. Customers of utility companies could be given a strengthened voice before hearings of the Public Utilities of some areas of the province, he said. The province could afford to pay medical care premiums for persons older than 65 without increasing taxes, he said, but would not be able to introduce a comprehensive dental care plan. Consideration could be given to a plan which would help people faced with exceptional dental bills but which would not pay for regular checkups or minor work. Castro: imperialism weaker Pre- "tool of U.S. imperialism" will vould also give a better deal or persons older than 65 years jy eliminating medical care >remrams, keeping rental rates n senior citizen homes at "fair md reasonable" levels and jiving special consideration for hose on fixed incomes. The youth of Alberta were also not ignored in the plat-orm which promised to give assistance in helping students ind summer employment. Mr. Lougheed said a Conservative plan would be similar to the federal Opporluni-ies for Youth Program but hat it would be improved by >etter administration. Efforts would also be made ,o influence federal authori-ies to reform laws which result in a convicted Fidel Castro has told a crowd of Cubans that the United States will continue to lay siege to and blockade their country, but that Cuba will not change its anti-imperialist position. Speaking in Revolution Square Monday night on the 26th anniversary of the start of his Cuban -revolution, Castro said American imperialism is much weaker now than in 1959 When he became premier. He said the concept of imperialism is no longer feared or respected. He said it was weakened by revolutionary struggles, especially the "struggle of the heroic Vietnamese people." Castro also said Cuba is no longer isolated. He noted that "a revolutionary process" and added there is a possibility that Uruguay might have a revolutionary government by the end of the year. The premier said this means history is following its inexorable course in Latin America. He said he believes that finally not one oligarchic government, not one reactionary government, not one government acting as on the Continent. Castro also disclosed that pigs had to be "sacrificed" because of an epidemic of African porcupine fever. He said it has been controlled and that the disease is not injurious to humans, but "it has taught us a lesson; we have to take measures to be sure that sanitary measures are followed." won to censor, TORONTO (CP) Knowlton Nash, CBC news director, said Monday the corpor'ation has agreed to allow the office of the high commissioner of India to inspect and comment on CBC film shot in that country. Bur Mr. Nash said this does not mean the CBC will submit to censorship "from India or any other country." He was commenting in an interview on a confidential memo issued July 15 by John Kerr, deputy director of TV information for the CBC and Mr. Nash's assistant. Mr. Nash, who said he read the memo today for the first time, confirmed that it spelled out a set of restrictions set by India and agreed to by the CBC. The memo, sent to CBC department heads and officials, said an Indian liaison officer will accompany CBC film crews and advise it on any footage it believes contrary to the interests of India. K also says the CBC has agreed to take into consideration all the comments of the high commissioner's office after the CBC film has been inspected by personnel there. Mr. Nash said the memo does not imply any fonn of censorship, but just a consultation. "We're willing to discuss a theme with he said. "But the key question is who has the final say and CBC must have the final say." Mr. Nash said India began imposing restrictions on foreign journalists four months ago. The British Broadcasting Corp. was expelled at {hat time over some footage it shot. But he said there was no film censorship during the recent evacuation of Pakistani submit ship "It was a straight in-and-out he said. The confidential memo said the CBC will supply a "treatment of theme" in quadruplicate to the high comm.issioner's office. The CBC and the office then will reach an agreement on the treatment of theme. It said a liaison officer would accompany film crews, and the finished product then would be examined by the hieh commissioner's office. Modify p on sale c CALGARY (CP) Progressive Conservative leader Peter Lougheed said here his party MS modified its position on the sale of Alberta Government Telephones. A Conservative government would no longer aim to sell ACT outright, the Opposiiton leader in the last legislature said in an interview. The Conservatives would >f AGT tain 51 per cent of the shares and the control but the other 49 per cent would be sold to Albertans under special conditions, he said. The main condition would be that ownership would be restricted to Albertans, with a maximum of three-per-cent ownership by any one individual or better off -Mahoney CALGARY (CP) A second CHANCEI XK oil sands extraction plant will not be rendered economically impossible by federal government tax proposals, says Pat Mahoney, Liberal MP for Calgary South. The project, which carries a tentative million price tag, has been stalled by uncertainty over the Liberal government's tax policy. In a speech to a Rotary Club meeting, Mr. Mahoney brandec as "irresponsible and fate" suggestions that the proposals will block construction of the proposed Syncrude Canada Ltd plant. The parliamentary secretarj to Finance Minister Benson said tne federal government is willing to treat Syncrude as a mining, not a petroleum, operation for tax purposes. "On 'he one hand it will lose the three-year tax holiday fm new mines but on Hie other i will be permitted the immedi ate write-off against income o plant and equipment that pre viously had to be capitalized and depreciated. The company will be permitted the immediate write off against income of the cost of many essential townsite fa cilities that could not previous ly be written off Syncride's tax position wil be better under the federa proposals than under the exist ing system, he said, unless the provincial government decides to levy a lax on mining opera tions.

'One language'' parly strong says Frawley CALGARY (CP) Members of the Dominion of Canada Party can "control the out- come" of the Alberta election Aug. 30. says Flo Frawley, leader of the Calgary based party. The party, using the slogan 'one official language one has asked its provin- cial members in a letter to support the candidate, regard- less of party, who signifies publicly that he or she opposes compulsory bilingualism.

Draft calls easing oil WASHINGTON (AP) De-1 diction last April that draft calls fence Secretary Melvin R. Laird said here the United States armed forces would have to draft about men during the next 12 months, indicating a 16-per-cent cut in the current monthly rate of draft calls. This would average about men a month. This repre- sents almost a month reduction in Laird's pre- for the remainder of 1971 would run around a monUi. In the first six months of this year, young men have been called up for duty. Thfl fence department has issued a call for more in July and August but inductions have been held up by a congressional deadlock on renewal of the draft authority which expired June 30 cal's 900 members rejected con- tract offers on June 20 and July 12. Dave Jillings, business man- ager of local 1007, said the main problem is the new working hours proposed by the city. Most of the local's members now work a regular 8 a.m. to p.m. day shift, but the city wants the right to create odd-hour shifts, such as 1 to 9 p.m. The local rejected the June 30 offer, which included a sal- ary increase of 20 per cent over two years, because of the working-hours proposal. City officials then agreed that men now on day shifts would not have to work odd shifts and offered to pay a six-per-cenl in- crease retroactive to Jan. 1 and a similar increase to July 1. A further seven per cent was to be added next Jan. 1 instead of rate increases at eight-month intervals. This offer was also rejected. INSURANCE LIABILITY BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD.
