Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta g THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD FiWay, July 28, 1972--------------------------------------- Canadian camping holiday Part 2 Canada's diversity makes it a travellers paradise In ONTARIO the National Capital of Ontario, the area that includes Canada's capital of Ottawa, there are two public campgrounds near the Trans- Canada Highway. One is at Taylor Lake in bcautful Gat- ine'au Park, Quchec, and the other on the western outskirts of Ottawa in Ontario. In addi- tion, there are numerous pic- nic areas, as well as historic and scenic points of interest. The Region is small, but steep- ed in history, natural beauty and the excitement native to any national capital. For Fheor variety in climate, topography and recreation, On- tario cannot be matched. It is Canada's second largest prov- ince geographically, its largest in terms of population. It's the industrial heart of Canada, with a heavy concentration of manufacturing centered in the southwest region. But, in the northeast and cart central sec- tions, there are huge areas of open spaces and untamed wil- derness, with rivers, streams, and some 250.000 lakes. If you camp near water, you are almost guaranteed good fishing. The mile stretch of the Trans Canada running through Ontario is dotted with about 60 campgrounls located In the provincial and national parks and more than 100 pic- nic sites. MANITOBA Manitoba, gateway to the west, is the most easterly of the three prairie provinces. Three-fifths of its total area square miles) is rocky, forest country. Campers following the Trans- Canada route will find four convenient parks, grounds, plus a with camp- number of others with excellent picric facilities. Birds Hill, just 14 miles north of Winnipeg, has a typical campground. It has pic- nic tables, water, kitchen shel- QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Denial Mechanic Capitol Fumllurt 31B.76S4M lor, cooking facilities, electric spectacular beauty can be en- outlels, toilets, showers, a sew- age station, telephones and a store. Recreation incl 11 d e s swimming, in an artificial lake, and riding. There are 18 different spe- cies of game fish waiting to be caught In the square miles of lakes, rivers and streams of Manitoba. They Include trout, walleye, perch, northern pike, sturgeon and others. SASKATCHEWAN Saskatchewan is known as the bread basket of the world. Eleven provincial campgrounds are situated along the Trans- Canada and their facilities are good. Moose Mountain, for ex- ample, has 243 tent and trailer sites, 87 with electricity, bar- becues, water from sandpipes, fireplaces, firewood, electric outlets, toilets, trailer sewage, a laundromat, ice, a store, snack bar, restaurant, change house, showers, a dock and launch ramp, a swimming beach and a children's play- ground. Activities include rid- ing, softball, horseshoe pitch- ing, hiking along nature trails, cycling and fishing. ALBERTA Alberta is a province of enor- mous contrasts, from the flat lands of the Prairies in the east to the lowering mountain peaks of the Rockies in the west. It is rich in oil and min- erals and has thousands of square miles of cattle raising ranchlands. And it has, in re- cent years, undergone rtriid economic development. The tourist industry, is lliriving and, as a result the province ranks as one of North America's leading outdoor playgrounds. Fishing, hunting, golfing, hik- ing, mountain climbing, almost every recrtatlon imaginable is available. So are some of the most beautiful campgrounds in the country. Eighteen are locat- ed in provincial parks with several more in Banff National Park. There is fishing for trout, Rocky Mountain whitef i s h, Arctic grayling, northern pike, walleye and goldeye. The mountains of Alberta are main- ly for nature lovers. Their joyed from tho comfort of a car, on horseback or fool, or in n canoe. BRITISH COLUMBIA The province of British Col- umbia maintains a system of campgrounds, wayside rest areas nnd picnic grounds. Lo- cation of these facilities is in- dicated along the highway by green and white warning signs, feet from the entrance turn-off and by carved signs at the entrance. Every camp- ground contains a number of campsites, each consisting of a parking spur, tent space, table and fireplace. Most will accom- modate small trailers, tent trailers, or camper vehicles, although no hook-ups are pro- vided. Firewood, adequate toi- let facilities and refuse con- tainers are supplied. Thirteen provincial parks with camp- sites are located along the Trans-Canada. The highway through or near also leads several na- tional" parks in British Colum- bia. They include Glacier, Mount RevelEtoke, Yoho, Koot- euay and Pacific Rim. All have campgrounds, but they are al- most too popular and, finding a suitable site is not always easy. THE YELLOWHEAD The Yellowhead, lead 1 n g through murh territory that was formerly herd to reach, is a highway made to order for the outdoorsman. Some of Can- ada's best fish and game are found along the route. There's everything from rainbow trout to steelhead to spring and sock- eye salmon, from ducks and geese to expeditions for bear and Rocky Mountain bighorns. The scenery ranges from the prairies of Manitoba and Sas- katchewan to the grandeur of three magnificent mounta 1 n ranges in Alberta and British Columbia. EXOTIC FESTIVALS For Canadians planning to visit India during tne upcoming fall monllis, there are several exciting and colourful festivals to be held. Above pliolo was taken at the Dussehra Feslival in Delhi, where immense cracker-stuffed effigies of Ravana, his brother, and son explode to the cheers of thousands of spectators. !v r9 250000, SWEEPSTAKES WEEK'S MINI-DRAW WINNER EDITH TEBEAU FORKS, B.C.

The gloomy House of Slaves, ancient stone dun- geons and forts and tiny beaches on this picturesque is- land and former slave depot attract thousands. They flock here by ferry- boat from nearby Dakar, the glittering capital of Senegal and onetime cornerstone of the French West African em- pire. The irony is that the tourist boom, which includes many black Americans fascinated by their past, mostly profits the non-Africans who run the two hotels and restaurants. It is a small but telling ex- ample of why "Africaniza- replacing of for- eigners by Africans in key jobs and be- come a major and emotional issue for the independent na- tions of black Africa. Despite a decade of political freedom, the heady aspira- tions of African states remain checked by a harsh eigners still own or run most major commercial ventures. ANGERS AFRICANS The continuing foreign con- trol of Africa's resources and economic life angers most Af- rican leaders and has stirred several to action. You can .see the problem ev- giant oil corpo- rations in Nigeria, tire copper mines of Zambia, Ihe rich iron mines and rubber planta- tions of Liberia and the grow- ing tourist industry in Sene- gal. Businessmen from France and Britain, Ihe major colo- nial powers, hnrl a head start.

FEEL INFERIOR This is what aggravates a sense of inferiority among members of Africa's elite and prompts bitter and continuous complaints by some about "neo-coloniousm" and "impe- rialism." African governments, under increasing pressure to find jobs for growing numbers of educated but unemployed citi- zens, are becoming desperate. "This country is training a revolutionary corps, creating an elite for which there is no place to says an educa- tionist in Senegal. "Africanization." however, requires more than education. Training and experience, still rare commodities in the ex- colonies of Africa, are in great demand. And to take control of major enterprises and run them smoothly requires even rarer cash in the bank or good credit. Africans are aware of their weaknesses, particularly in fields they have already taken over, such as government and government-run corporations. UNDER FIRE Nigeria's former president Nnamdi Azikime recently blasted his country's public corporations which, he was quoted as saying, "indicated woeful experience, palpable incompetence, gross I n e f f 1- ciency, barefaced corruption, inexcusable nepotism, finan- cial squandermanla, Irrespon- sible administration and un- warranted ministerial inter- ference Some foreign businessmen say they would like to help but cannot find the necessary skilled manpower, noting that many Africans trained abroad remain overseas where sala- ries are higher and the Iving more comfortable. Also troublesome, say long- lime observers in Africa, is the fact that many educated Africans have a disdain for manual labor and feel hard work is for peasants. They prefer to hold office Jobs as civil servants which provide regular pay, little chance of dismissal once and, most important of all in the developing world, status. Weekend fun and banquet with a king for only ZN'OJMO This old flira- vian town 40 miles from Brno and Vienna, a lustorical res- ervation under the Czecho- slovak National Trust, is the site each year (in September) of a carnival-wine festival that many a foreign visitor has described as one of the merriest in Kuropc. Summer tourists to Czecho- slovakia needn't coincide their visits with the dates of the festival to have fun here, however, for the visitor on any weekend during the .sum- mer (Fridays at 5 p.m. and Saturdays at 4) can gain en- trance to Znojmo Castle and "King Premysl Otakar II" for a mere Wine is ex- tra.

I South African farms popular PORT ELIZABETH Sa- farm, a scheme launched In South Atrlca last year to enable tourists to enjoy farm holidays in the Eastern Cape, has prov- ed so popular that it can no longer run on a part-time basis and as a result a Port travel agency has tnken over the booking arrangements, Forty-five farms have been graded Into different cate- gories. They range from sheep and cattle farms to citrus es- tates, and accommodation ranges from luxury to The farms are scattered throughout the Eastern Cape and offer a variety of attrac- tions, including mountaineer- ing, swimming, trout fishing and horseback riding. The popularity of farms with tourists is illustrated by the recent opening of a farm called "High Noon" to the public. Sit- uated just outside Villiersdorp, it is a day's outing from Cape Town and as an added bonus there four mountain passes to be seen on the round trip via Franschhoek and back over Sir Lowry'a Pass. The farm sports well-sign- posted scenic drives leading to vistas of the towering mountain peaks, the valley with Its dams, orchards and forests, and a 100- I foot-high waterfall. Five thous- and acres are carpeted with in- digenous wild flowers, Includ- ing rare proteas and heaths which are sent all over tho world In dried form. Besides being able to learn something of modern-day fruit farming in the orchards and packing sheds, visitors can see the magnificent palomino horses at close quarters and watch a special show put on by their trainer.
