Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 LETHBR1DGE HERALD Friday, June 7, 1974 Commemorate D-Day War veterans and officials stand at attention 'You brought us back to Canadians thanked By CAROL KENNEDY COURSEULLES. France 'CP> "Thank you, my friends, thank you so much." declared the mayor of this Normandy seaside village, his voice breaking with emotion Speaking powerfully in English to Veterans Affairs Minister Daniel MacDonald and a throng of Canadian D-Day survivors as cold wind and rain lashed in from the Channel. Mayor J. P. Boudard told the Canadians who stormed ashore here and at nearby beaches 30 years ago "You brought us back to in Courseulles never shall forget you. Your dead heroes have fallen for our honor At the Courseulles ceremony, the main Canadian event of Allied D- Dav commemorations all along this historic coast Thursday. MacDonald unveiled regimental plaques on a greenpamted Sherman tank that stands by the beach. One of the amphibious tanks which the Canadians rode in that day. it was sunk by enemy- fire but was salvaged as a memorial five years ago by a former member of the 1st Hussars living in the area, the late Leo Garety The three new plaques were to the 1st Hussars, the 12th Field Regiment. Royal Canadian Artillery. and 6th Field Company, Royal Canadian En- gineers Despite the cruel change in the weather, it was a stirring affair of military bands, pipes and flags whipping in the Channel gale. Scores of French townsfolk braved the sudden downpour to join veterans in a parade to the tank after an ecumenical service in the parish church conducted by Arch- bishop G F. Jackson of Regina and the Roman Catholic bishop of Bayeux. MacDonald. who arrived by helicopter after placing a wreath at the U S war cemetery at Omaha Beach, said the battle of Normandy which began 30 years ago Thursday "must rank among the great battles of time It changed the course of history and of a most dramatic way The main accent of the D-Day ceremonies was and Americans have al- ternated in previous a full 100-man Canadian guard of honor' from Canadian Forces Europe and the Air Transport Command band from Kingston, Ont., turned out for the big cer- emony at Utah Beach on the Cherbourg Peninsula. Ttie American sector was more rocky, with low cliffs, in contrast to the flat sand of the British and Canadian assault beaches, and U S casualties were heavy. A flurry of Canadian regimental ceremonies Thursday started with a joint commemoration at their memorial at Bermeres by Le Regiment de la Chaudiere and the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada. The Queen's Own suffered the worst casualties of any Canadian regiment on D-Day, with 143 dead Hugues Lapointe. lieutenant-governor of Quebec and a former commander of the Chau- diere. along with Col. Paul Mathieu. who commanded the regiment on D-Day, attended the brief service. Emotions ran high at Pegasus Bridge near Ranville, a few miles inland, when Gen. Sir Richard Gale, the British airborne commander on D- Day, presented a color with battle honors to the Canadian 1st Parachute Battalion Pegasus Bridge, spanning the canal running from Caen to the sea, was the first place liberated in Northwest point where British and Canadian paratroopers launched what German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel predicted accu- rately would be for both sides "the longest day Sykes upset over booing at Calgary CALGARY (CP) Mayor Rod Sykes says the demonstration against Prime Minister Trudeau was "something I'd rather forget it was destructive." "There was just too much personal insult for anything good to come of he told a small group of reporters and demonstrators in front of the Palliser Hotel where the prime minister was received The mayor was at the airport to welcome the prime minister when he arrived here Wednesday and he travelled back to the Palliser in Mr. Trudeau's limousine. "I wanted to spend those 20 minutes along with the prime minister to get a chance to talk with him It became very clear to me that Mr. Trudeau hasn't been fully informed by either his own advisers or by our represenatatives in Ottawa." The prime minister didn't realize the implications of his policies on Calgary, "especially the little Mr. Sykes said. "Mr. Trudeau is willing to listen and is very receptive to change, but when you want a fair hearing and results, you don't insult somebody and boo at him." The mayor said that the prime minister did not realize the effect of the oil industry on construction in Calgary. "I think we'll get some results and some changes, but it's unfortunate that some people try to use means like this hysterical demonstration to achieve something." Temporary jail leaves defended HALIFAX (CP) The chairman of the National Parole Board has defended the program of temporary absences for prisoners as "immensely successful." He says the public hears only about a relatively small number of prisoners who do not return from such ab- sences. William Outerbridge, speak- ing yesterday to a meeting of police and parole authorities here, said that of tem- porary absences granted last year, one half of one per cent of the prisoners involved did not return to custody on schedule. Since its inception, the tem- porary absence program has been 99 per cent successful, Mr. Outerbridge said. Facts showed that two- thirds of paroled prisoners never get into trouble with the law again On the other hand, two-thirds of those not paroled do become second offenders. SAND gravel ASPHALT SAND and GRAVEL Construction Co. Ltd., PHONE 328-8196 Emergency services criticized VANCOUVER (CP) Dr. Gustav Gingras. executive director of the Rehabilitation Institute of Montreal, delivered a ringing indictment of hospital emergency services Thursday, calling them understaffed and often badly organized. Dr. Gingras. in a speech to the annual convention of the Canadian Hospital Association, said emergency rooms must be improved, citing examples of services in Canadian hospitals he said he had experienced just once before, in a South Vietnamese hospital nine years ago. "To date the general public has not become aware of the fact, nor started to criticize, hospitals for having the most junior, inexperienced staff instead of the most capable, the most experienced, in the emergency departments during the evening hours and on weekends when the most critical and most numerous patients are present." he said.
