Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta
18 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, 7, 1974 Forty-Mile councillors 'don't know what they are talking about The federally-funded Opportunities For Youth program, which is providing almost HOO jobs for Southern Albertans, has been defended by the local officer in charge. Scott McKinnon, reacting to a motion passed by the County of Forty-Mile council which recommended abandoning the program, said "they don't know what they are talking about." Mr. McKinnon said he can't see the logic of such a motion. County Coun. William George McFall said in his motion thai because of the extreme shortage of labor in most areas of the country, the Opportunities For Youth program should be "cut out to put the youth on labor where they should be." Mr. McKinnon said, "We are past the concentration camp period. We can't force people to work." He said the OFY program was designed to provide work for college and university students between school years so these people can earn money to learn skills needed to make a living. He said the OFY doesn't appeal to trained craftsmen, the group of people he feels are most in demand for work. Mr. McKinnon pointed to several OFY projects in the South which support his argument. He said one project will provide a booklet for disabled persons, telling them which buildings in the city are accessible for handicapped persons. Many of the persons working on the project are handicapped themselves. Another project provides jobs for 10 young Indians on the Blood Reserve. The boys are learning a carpentry and painting trade and their practical experience is gained by working on and improving houses occupied by older residents of the reserve. Third and fourth year law students are employed in Lethbiidge at a legal guidance clinic, said Mr. McKinnon. These students provide a service, free of charge, to.people who can't afford a lawyer. They handled 300 cases last summer. Jugs bacteria free, says inspector Plastic milk jugs from Lethbridge's Silverwoods Dairy tested for germs showed almost no trace of bacteria, according to a local public health inspector. Pat Hirsche said three plastic milk jugs were selected at random along with three glass milk bottles and sealed empty after they had gone through the dairy's cleaning system. They were tested at the Municipal Hospital laboratory. Mr. Hirsche said the dairy is using jugs made of a new, less-porous type of plastic. He said they can be just as easily disinfected as glass bottles. He did agree plastic jugs not properly cleaned could have slipped by when the random selection was made but he said the same case was possible with the glass bottles. Mr. Hirsche said the dairy drivers are instructed to check the plastic jugs as they pick them up from homes and then the person on the washer also checks the 'plastic jugs. "After the containers have been in use in Lethbridge for a while we will make more tests to see if there is any Mr. Hirsche said.
