Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, Jun. 14, 1972 THE LFTHBRIDGE HERAID 5 Full employment budget pressed By JAMKS NELSON i OTTAWA (CP) The Tru- deau government again has shown it cannot solve (he unem- ployment problem and il should adopt a full-employment budget, President Donald MacDonald of the Canadian Labor Congress said Tuesday. "If the present government is unable or unwilling to pursue such a full employment policy, Canadians will soon have the opportunity to choose another government more concerned with their social he said in a statement after Statistics Canada reported that Canadians were out of work last tnontli. ROBERT STANFIELD Opposition Leader Robert (anfield, in another statement, choed the labor leader's criti ism of the government's record rilh unemployment and raised ic issue as one to be decided at next election. Mr. Stanficld said that HID jovernment was cynical in say- ig unemployment and inflation rad to be fought by the private ector. While raising the spectre f furtber rapid inflation, the government had no solution but o slow down the economy igain. "Unemployment must be re- Mr. Stanfield said. "In- lation is certainly a serious iroblem, but I believe it is a iroblem that must be treated >y means that do not affect obs. "In an emergency, this would nvolve Uie imposition of tempo- rary controls as the only hu- mane alternative to another massive economic slowdown." HIGHER THAN MAY, 1971 The two men issued their statements after Statistics Can- ada reported that unemploy- ment declined to at mid- May from in April, but remained higher than the jobless in May, 1971. Mr. MacDonald said a full- employment budget should rally "the entire resources of the country through fiscal and other means to provide jobs." Government unemployment- relief programs so far have had no impact on alleviating Can- ada's major problem, he said. Finance Minister John Turner said in his May 8 budget the first priority of the government is "to bring about a further sub- stantial reduction in unemploy- ment." However, he predicted further month-to-month fluctua- tions in unemployment rate. The Statistics Canada report on employment and unemploy- ment said the number of jobless last month was 6.2 per cent of the labor force on both an ac- tual and a seasonally-adjusted basis. The actual rate was down from 6.8 per cent, but the sea- sonally-adjusted rate was up from 5.8. Economists look to the sea- sonally-adjusted rate to see the underlying trend. It is computed by tlie statisticians to show the extent of unemployment If il were not clouded by seasonal factors sueh-as the harshness of the Canadian winter, when ac- tivity slows down. Whether seasonally adjusted or not, Mr. MacDonald said, the amount of joblessness "is today almost identical with the rate of unemployment last year." Women are locking their doors Doorbells buzzing in Manitoba lest WINNIPEG (CP) Along the tree-shaded residential streets between the meandering Assini- boine River and bustling Por- tage Avenue, gaily-coloted can- didates' signs dot the lawns and the doorbell-ringing goes on day end night. Campaigning for a June IS provincial byelection in the south-central Winnipeg constitu- ency of Wolseley is intense. While the New Democratic Party government's majority in the legislature won't be af- fected, Friday's voting in tlio long-time Conservative strong- Fine print contracts outlawed Ily THE CANADIAN PRESS Quebec buyers won't have to read the fine print on contracts after Aug. 1 there won't be any. Consumers protection that is unique in Canada will come inlo effect on that date, William Tetley, Quebec minister of fi nancial institutions, said in a statement. The legislation, which forbids verbal contracts, specifies the size of printing on a contract, eliminating "cramped hand- writing" or fine print. It also outlaws all types of pyramid selling sales which induce the buyer to pay for a portion of his purchase by sell- ing the product to other con- sumers. Also in effect Aug. 1 will be a plan to pay the costs of medi- cines required by welfare re- cipients, Claude Castonguay, social affairs minister, told a news conference. !ln said the plan, expected to cost million in the first year of operation will affect aboi't persons tlic unemployed, invalids, handi- capped persons, widows and their dependents. hold has portents for the gen- eral election Premier Ed Schreyer is expected to call about a year from now. The NDP, campaigning hard to win, probably has the least to lose. A setback for the Conserva- tives, the official opposition, would do nothing to enhance their argument that they are the only party capable of mus- tering sufficiently broad support lo topple the New Democrats. For the Liberals, Wolseley is a vital step on the comeback trail from the electoral disaster of 1969 and Is bound to have repercussions on the political career of freshman leader I. H. Asper. MAKES FIRST TRY Mr. Asper, a prominent tax lawyer who passed up three byeleclions since taking over the Liberal reins a year and a half ago, is making his first at- tempt at a legislature scat. Ernes Enns, a merchandising manager and former city alder- man, is seeking to hold the rid- ing for the Conservatives. The NDP candidate is Vic Schroc- der, a law student and president of the Wolseley Constituency As- sociation. A fourth candidate entered the running just before the nom- ination deadline. William Ha- wryluk, an accountant and for- mer unsuccessful city council candidate, is running as an in. dependent Social Credifer with- out party backing. Standing in the 57-member house, with Wolseley vacant, is NDP 30, Conservatives 20, Lib- erals three, Social Credit one and two independents. Wolseley has been Conserva- tive since its creation through redistribution in time for the 1958 general election when it was taken by then premier Dufl Roblin. Mr. floblin was suc- ceeded in the riding by Leonard Claydon, who died in December. In the 1969 general election which brought the NDP to power and reduced the Liberals to third-party status, Mr. Clay- don got votes compared with for an NDP candidate and for a Liberal. OTTAWA (CP) Members of Parliament have to make up their minds whether they are "legislating for the crooks or the says Conservative justice critic Eldon Woolliams. Mr. Woolliams (Calgary North) told the Commons jus- tice committee "wives arc starting to lock their doors be- cause men arc entering their houses to rape them while their husbands arc at work." "I don't want to loosen tho law to protect crooks in Can- ada." The Conservative MP was de. fending a provision in govern- ment-proposed wiretapping leg- islation which would allow po- lice to introduce evidence gath' ercd in connection with a wire- crooks or people tap which, in itself, might not bo admissible as evidence. Mr. Woolliams was leading an attack on an amendment which would have wiped out this provi- sion. The amendment was de- feated G to 5. The debate came just heforo tlie committee approved an amended bill. The legis- lation now returns to the Com- mons for further debate. Under the bill, wiretapping in Canada would become an of- fence punishable by a five-year prison term. But wirelapping could he used to prevent espionage, sabotage or other subversive activities jeopardizing Ihe nation's secu- rity. It also could be used by the police lo carry out criminal in- vestigations provided permis- sion had been gained first from a superior court or county courl judge. MOniSON 1'INDS SUPPORT John B. Morison Wenlworlh) urged the commit- tee to strike out the provisions allowing police lo use evidence gained in connection with an in- admissible wiretap. He drew support from Davirl Orlikow (N D P i n n i p c g North) who said lhat one of the main purposes of the bill is lo lay down conditions for wiretap- ping. Police should not be allowed to use evidence galhered as a result of an illegal wiretap. Mr. Woolliams said this was a delicate mailer hul "we are moving inlo a period where crime is a syndicated matter." "Our responsibility should bo on the side of tho lie said. "I'm not here lo assist people who are planning and doing crimes every day." If Ihis provision was abused, Parliament could review the mailer at a later dale. Mark MacGuigan Walkerviile said he finds it hard to see why police would indulge in illegal wirelapping. The amendment suggested by Mr. Morison would restrain the police in certain circumslances.
