Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 _ THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, Juno II, 1970 Wants Action On Incidents Of 'Economic Extortion ertr QUEBEC (CP) Opposition Leader Jean-Jacques Bcrtrand called on the govern in e n t Wednesday to investigate inci- dents of "economic extortion" during the recent election cam- paign and to take appropriate legal action. Replying in the Quebec na- tional assembly to Premier Kobert Bourassa's statement of general pdicy Tuesday, the 53- year-old Union NationalO leader referred to "the grossest and most farcial manoeuvres imagi- nable1' during the campaign. Mr. Bourassa's Liberals came to power in the April 29 Quebec general election, succeeding Mr. Bertrand's party. The former premier men- tioned a convoy of Brink's Ex- press trucks which left Montreal for Ontario a few clays before the election, reported to have been carrying a large amount of securities. He said his party accepts the results added: "The acceptance of tiie popu- lar will should not prevent us from asking ourselves queslions and asking ourselves to what extent the verdict of April could have been influenced and even deformed by such meth- ods. After the publication of a let- ter from the Montreal invest- ment consulling firm cf Latterly Harwccd and Co. Ltd., advising its clients to remove their se- curities from Quebec pending the. election, the Brink's affair could only provoke "emotional, irrational reactions, reactions of panic." Mr. Bertram! said that no- thing in the platforms of any of the parties in the election could have given the slightest cause :o believe property could have 3een endangered by the election result. Also, nothing in the mentality of Quebecers could have justi- fied the fear that a democrati- cally-elected government would By GERARD McNEIL OTTAWA (CP) Prince Charles, the future king, makes his first visit to Ottawa July 2-1 and sleepless nights have been spent to make it a memorable occasion. Although the unofficial pro- gram, with a trip to Parlia- ment, garden party and state dinner, resembles the royal run-around of decades past, it could be interesting. The emphasis in the guest list for the dinner, still being compiled, will be on youth. And 21-year-old Charles could find himself chatting with Montreal actress Genevieve Bujold. She played Anne Boleyn o Richard Burton's Henry VIII in the movie Anne of the Thousand Days. Charles's Ottawa visit is a prelude to a tour of the North- west Territories and Mani- toba, with Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip and Princess Anne, to mark the centennials there. The program here has yet to be approved by Buck- ingham Palace and hasn't been officially announced but official activity has made the outline fairly clear. Prince Charles is to arrive in the evening of July 2 and arrangements have been made for him to see the sec- ond half of the Canadian Foot- ball League's all-star game that night. More crowd exposure will come in the morning when he goes from Government House to Parliament Hill for an hour with Commons Speaker Lu- cien Lamoureux. Parliament is expected to rise for the summer June 25. A garden party after noon at Government House and an evening dinner also are in- cluded in the program, de- scribed by protocol officers as busy. Charles flies to Frobisher Bay on Baffin Island July 4 to begin a full 11-day tour of the North and Manitoba.

The air force said a doctor from the Soviet freighter, Rionges, was summoned to the aid of the badly-injured 13- year-old cabin bay. After examining the boy, the doctor requested medical sup- plies and the U.S. Air Force 57th Aerospace Rescue and Re- covery Squadron moved into ac- tion from a base in the Azores, parachuting four U.S. para-res- cuemen and the supplies re- quired by the doctor into the ocean near the vessel, then about' 700 miles West of the Azores. Hours later, a seaman on The Booker Venture, in the same general area, also asked the Rionges to send its doctor. The doctor examined the patient and then radioed the same air force rescue squadron. Two para-rescuemen para- chuted with medical supplies into the sea. They assisted the Soviet doc- tor in perrorming an operation on the injured seaman.

JEAN' BERTRAND Farcial IManoeuvres While he did not hold the Lib- eral government responsible for the though it largely benefited from it had a responsibility to prose- cute "those who cpcnly violated Quebec's electoral law." "Oljerwisc, serious doubls will continue U> exist concerning the legitimacy of its mandate and its freedom of action. "People will have the right to ask themselves whether the government is not the choice or the servant of those who used such tactics to have it elected." Mr. Bcrtrand als-3 called for changes in the provinces elec- toral map and electoral system to permit the national assembly to reflect more accurately lire elcctorale's opinions. He proposed the abolition of "protected" ridings these which, under terms of the Brit- ish North America Act of 18G7, remain the same size to protect rural English-speaking minori- ties.

OTTAWA (CP) Csnada has banned imports of Australian mutton in line with similar ac- tion by the United States, pend- improvements in the Aus- tralian system of dealing with certain physiological conditions. "We expect shipments will be reinstated S. B. Wil- liams deputy agriculture minis- ter, said Wednesday. He said Australia already is taking ac- tion to correct the problem. Canada imports between and pounds annually. Dr. Arthur Annis. an agricul- ture department veterinarian, now is eu route home from Aus- rralia where he studied the pro- cedures used there to inspect meats. He found that inspection of boneless frozen mutton was in- ferior to Canadian procedures. By law, procedure must be equivalent to permit entry to Canada of the meat. Mr. Williams said he under- stands the United Stales im- posed its ban because of con- cern for methods of dealing with a variety of internal paras- ites and some arthritic condi- tions. He said that Canada lias found no evidence of frozen mutton affected in this way. The Canadian decision con- cerned Hie Australian proce- dures only. The length of die ban depends on how rapidly the Australians tighten up their procedures, Mr. Williams said. They had ac- cepted Canada's objections as valid and begun changes.
