Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta
2 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, Juna 10, 1971 Alberta's move in land swap OTTAWA (CP) - The next move is up to Alberta if it wants to swap land with the federal government, Northern Development Minister Jean Chretien said Wednesday. He told the Commons north-e r n development committee that he informed Alberta cabinet ministers last December he was willing to trade off part of Wood Buffalo Park in exchange for suitable park land elsewhere in the province. "I asked them to make me a proposition," Mr. Chretien said. He added he is still waiting for it. The minister, whose portfolio Includes responsibility for national' parks, said he would not give in to an Alberta demand for all of the park lying within the province's borders. Cosmonauts space lab flying hotel MOSCOW (Reuter) - The three Soviet cosmonauts today went into the fourth day of orbit aboard the world's first manned spacebase which was described In a Tass news agency report as "a complete flying hotel." The comment was made b y mission control scientists Boris Raushenbakh, who painted a cosy picture of life on board Salute arid said the cosmonauts had a whole library of their favorite books, a refrigerator, a vacuum cleaner and a stove. The cosmonauts carried out experiments today using observation and research instruments to examine phenomena of the earth and outer space. The crew of the space lab-commander Georgi Bodrovol-sky, flight engineer Vladislav Volkov and test engineer Viktor Patsayev-finished their work Wednesday i n mid-afternoon after spending the day getting their house in order and making sure their ferry craft would get them back home. The schedule included tests on the systems of Soyuz 11, which docked' with Salute Monday morning to form the space station. There are no indications yet when the crew intended returning. The three also carried out medical tests to find out their powers of endurance in weight less conditions over a long period. Then Dobrovolsky tried on a new-look space suit designed to counteract some of the effects of weightlessness. The close-fitting suit places a special load on the cosmonaut's body to make up for lack of gravity and counteract what a television commentator here called "de-training" of the muscles in conditions of weightless- Wood Buffalo has 17,300 square miles of wilderness area, the largest such park in the world. It straddles the boundary between Alberta and the Northwest Territories Mr. Chretien noted that the area was set aside as a wilderness park in 1922, and he said that the Canadian people would not accept a decision now to withdraw it from park lands. Mr. Chretien also said that a master plan for the park now is being drawn up. It would be completed early in 1972. SETTLE INDIAN CLAIMS Some 93,000 acres of the present park on the Alberta side will be set aside to settle and claims of the Fort Chdpewyan Indians living In the park, Mr. Chretien added. Three tracts of land-including one with gypsum deposits-were selected by the Indians in 1966 and these were offered to the Indians as a settlement. The Indians, however, countered with a demand for about 200,000 acres and Mr. Chretien informed Chief Albert Gladue that he could not support the claim. It would require renegotiation of the treaty terms. Mr. Chretien repeated his stand that timber would continue to be cut commercially in a small section of the park because it provided employment for about 100 Indians there. Mr. Chretien said he is ready to grant a strip of land off the eastern portion of the park for a road providing direct access from Fort Mackay to Fort Smith, N.W.T. Alberta has said it will build the road only if it helps open up a new resource area and wants Ottawa help. Mr. Chretien -said Ottawa wasn't ready to make a contribution to it at this time.

Trudeau has hectic day in Hamilton By DENNIS BELL HAMILTON (CP) - Prime Minister Trudeau defused a potentially explosive confrontation between police, trade unionists and youthful protesters Wednesday night with diplomacy, several decibels of rock music and reinforcements from Ottawa- his wifo Margaret. Successful avoidance of a clash between the demonstrators and police-both sides appeared ready for one-capped a hectic day of barnstorming through the city, during which more than 25,000 Hamiltonians had a look at the prime minister. Two hours before Mr. Trudeau was to attend a civic ball commemorating Hamilton's Top hydro official resigns over power project issue WINNIPEG (CP) - A senior executive of Manitoba Hydro resigned Wednesday, apparently because he could not accept the hydro board plans to proceed with a multi-million dollar power project on the Nelson River in northern Manitoba.

The 74 - year - old actor recently completed a long series of appearances in Canada and the U.S. in connections with his nomination for best supporting actor in the film Little Big Man. years, tendered his resignation three weeks ago. It was accepted Wednesday. The announcement came two days after Mr. Kristjanson had clashed with Hydro's chairman, David Cass-Beggs, during a legislative committee meeting called to discuss different plans for the $77.5 million power project. During the meeting, Mr. Cass-Beggs had attacked proposals put forward by former Manitoba premier D. L. Campbell, and called the former premier's objections to hydro's plans "schoolboy arithmetic, founded on inaccurate asump-tions." Mr. Campbell, Liberal premier from 1948 to 1999, had disagreed with hydro's plans to regulate Lake Winnipeg for power and flood-control purposes, claiming $11 million a year could be saved by diverting water from the Churchill River. Mr. Campbell bad himself resigned a month earlier from the hydro board over disagreement with its policies. Hydro plans call for a $50 million program to regulate Lake Winnipeg for bom power and flood-control purposes, to be fol-lwed in 1975 or 1976 by a $27.5 million diversion of the Churchill River to the Nelson River at southern Indian Lake. Premier Schreyer told the legislature Wednesday the contract on the first stage of the plan has been let by Manitoba Hydro. The successful bid of $12.8 million, to dredge two channels at the north end of the lake, was awarded to a Vancouver consortium, Sceptre Dredging Ltd. and Dillingham Corp. of Canada.

The labor people were joined by 200 more demonstrators they didn't want-young members of the League for Socialist Action and the Young Socialist*, protesting everything from abortion laws to the war in Vietnam. The union demonstration was organized by the Hamilton Labor Committee for Jobs, a group representing a dozen major unions with a combined membership of more than 50,000. HAD BRIEF READY The committee wanted to submit a brief to Mr. Trudeau protesting the unemployment situation-about 35,000 people are out of work in the Hamilton region, which the committee says is 10 per cent of the labor force. But Mr. Trudeau turned them down cold .when they asked for face-to-face meeting. While Mr. Trudeau was eating dinner, his aides were working out compromise to end the demonstration with union leaders. In the end, committee representatives presented the five-page brief to Paul Trainor, special assistant to Health Minister John Munro, who promised it would find its way to Mr. Trudeau. That was good enough for the union men. They packed up their placards and headed for home an hour before Mr. Trudeau was scheduled to arrive at the hotel for the civic ball. "We got what we came here for," said a committee spokesman. "We wanted the prime minister to see the brief and we were promised that he would." The spokesman said the union demonstrators had been warned not to provoke any incidents with police, "but if trouble had come, we were ready to handle it." Mr. Trudeau completed his tour de force by unexpectedly bringing along Mrs. Trudeau when he showed up at the hotel at 9 p.m. She had flown in from Ottawa earlier in the evening.

OTTAWA (CP) - The govern-' ment reorganization bill won second reading in the Senate Wednesday after a last going-over from five senators, including the sponsor of the bill. Senator John Connolly (L- Ontario), the sponsor, admitted in wrapping up the debate on second reading that he didn't explain superannuation provisions because he hadn't understood them. The bill, already passed by the Commons, includes early-retirement provisions for civil servants and pension plan changes for deputy ministers. Senators Jacques Flynn (PC -Quebec), Ernest Manning (SC -Alberta), Eugene Forsey (L -Ontario) and Hartland Molson (Ind-Quebec) all criticized the bill, which now goes to committee. OBJECTS TO PACKAGE Senator Flynn, opposition leader in the Upper House, objected in particular to the pack-aging of a number of unrelated topics in the same bill. Senator Manning, former premier of Alberta, said the omnibus approach is "bad policy." He and Senator Molson both objected to the "proliferation" of government. Senator Forsey said his "grave doubts" about the bill included the fact that it would mean a cabinet of 34 or 35 members instead of the present 29. In other work Wednesday: -Second reading was given a bill that would raise Senate pay to $18,000 a year from $12,000 and tax-free allowancesto $4,000 a year from $3,000.

The bill includes raises for elected members ofParliamentto $18,000 from $12,000, with tax-free allowance, rising to $8,000 from $6,000. -Third reading and passage was given a Commons bill providing that taxes be used to pay the rent at the official residence of the prime minister.
