Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Juiw 1, 1974 THE LETHBRIOQE HERALD-9 Politicians big link in housing chain MONTREAL (CP) Political inaction was singled out at a world housing conference meeting in Montreal this week as the major obstacle to ending hous- ing shortages. But Oktay Ural, president of the International Association for Housing Science, said Friday he is confident the growing housing problem can be solved. The alternative was social chaos. Professor Ural, construction division director at Florida International University, said in an interview that only stringer c population control and firm political measures can cope with a housing situation that is as serious as the food and energy crises. Earlier this week, the inter- national symposium on low- cost housing problems was told by United Nations housing Samy Chamecki that the world housing deficit in urban areas alone is growing by four to five million units a year. The symposium ended Friday. Mr. Chamecki said the in- creasingly serious housing problem must be brought to the attention of the public so people will push their governments to action. Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes said Thursday federal-provin- cial squabbling is denying many Canadians adequate housing. There was a "war for power and greed" between the senior levels of government. Other delegates echoed this view that strong political measures must be taken to deal with housing. Prof. Ural said politicians are "the most important link in the chain." "If they fumble the ball, the game is he said. The Turkish-born housing expert launched the first international symposium in 1970 It was followed by a second conference in St. Louis, Mo., in 1972 and this week's meeting in Montreal. The symposiums have given birth to the international hous- ing science association which includes engineers, social scientists and government officials. Prof. Ural said the problems of growing population and mass migration to cities from rural areas must be dealt with if the housing issue is to become manageable. The housing crisis in some developing countries was becoming a major social problem. New labor minister named TORONTO (CP) Toronto lawyer John MacBeth Friday was named Ontario's new labor minister.
