Wednesday, 12, 1974 LETHBRIDGE HERALD- 45 Indian issue thrown wide open TORONTO (CP) A three-man Ontario Court of Appeal began hearings Tuesday into a case which has thrown wide open the issue of Indian rights in Canada. Mr. Justice W. F. Schroeder heads the tribunal hearing the appeal by the elected council for control of the Six Nation In- dian Reserve near Brantford, Ont. In a 24-page judgment last July, Mr. Justice John Osier of the Ontario Supreme Court ruled in favor of the historic Council of Hereditary Chiefs as rightful controllers of the re- serve instead of the elected Indian council imposed by the federal government in 1924. ___________ His judgment was based on precedent established in official land dealings between the Indians and colonial governors, Sir Frederick Haldimand and John Graves Simcoe in the late 1700s. Mr. Justice Osier said those documents showed that the territory of the Six Nations is not a reserve but land given outright to the Indians. He further said the Indian Act which established the elected council is nullified by virtue of its discrimination by reason of race. Save 20% on custom drapery fabrics. We make house calls!

L. Gray, president of Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. said Tuesday. However, there were no or- ders pending from that country, Mr. Gray told a news conference at the Canadian Nuclear Association (CNA) annual meeting. He declined to say where the interest had come from. Nuclear power reactors in the U.S. are all American- designed, and American nuclear companies sell many more nuclear reactors abroad than does AECL. the federal agency which markets the Candu reactors. Mr. Gray, asked to comment on reports that Candu reactors would be selling in the U.S. in 10 years, said it was "a very tough market." CNA officials told reporters they want more specific guides from the federal government on energy policy. A firm government policy on uranium export and development is essential, the CNA said in a brief, pointing out that Canada has the potential to supply its own and significant portion of the world's requirements for uranium for many years. Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said last year that such a policy would be brought in before the end of 1973. SHOULD ENCOURAGE The association said the government should provide in- centives to support exploration and development of uranium, including financial assistance to offset high risk associated with certain worth-while ventures. It recommends that uranium supplies surplus to Canadian requirements be processed further before export. Processing included the making of enriched uranium and nuclear fuel, as well as production of electricity from Candu reactors using domestic uranium. Art O'Connor of Fredencton. outgoing president of the CNA. said new federal guides should ensure that nuclear energy is used wherever possible instead of oil or natural gas. This would ensure that oil and natural gas are saved for uses that depend on them such as transportation.
