Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta laturaay, June 10, inc icinpnivvi If territorial waters extended West Coast naval force increase stressed VICTORIA (CP) If Envi- ronment Minister Jack Davis wants to extend Canada's terri- torial waters 200 miles off- shore, naval forces on the West Coast will need bolstering, says Rear Admiral Richard H. Leir. "We can do surveillance as far as our planes fly, but the further we go out, the more thinly we have to spread our- selves and the less effective the patrol he told a news conference Thursday. Rear-Admiral Leir, who has served as commander of mari- time forces in the Pacific from the Esquimau base near here for the last three years, will leave his post next Thursday to take up his new duties in Ot- tawa as chief of maritime oper- ations. At his news conference Rear- Admiral Leir made a plea for the expansion of the navy's West Coast installations. The shift in the navy's role from a defence force only to a role which places increased em- phasis on surveillance and pa- trol of the country's sover- eignty, he said, would rule out any cutbacks in personel here "We have the largest coast- line in the world, there are in- creasing dangers of pollution and we must fulfill our obliga- tions in the field of surveillance and he said. The Rear-Admiral also that ihe navy should become more involved in under-water activities. "We don't know what the big oil companies are doing to the continental shelf. We need more submersibles to an eye on the situation." He said he would like to see Canada lead the way in the de- velopment of a totally new type of nuclear-powered submarine which could be used in a dual capacity of research and sur- veillance. The Rear Admiral stated cat- Twin foals born Tyson Merriam, years old, feeds one of the twin foals born this week to Shadow, a part-Arabian mare owned by Mr. and Mrs. Jim Merriam of Allenford, Ont., near Owen Sound. The premature female foal has not been able to stand to feed her- self, although a veterinarian has declared she is healthy and expects her to walk soon. Twin foals are extremely rare.____________________________________ Repairing Ulster economy big job By PATRICK MASSEY BELFAST (Reuter) Re- pairing the economy of North- ern Ireland, once the shooting stops, may not be as difficult as it seems from a first glance at the ravaged streets of Belfast and Londonderry. "The visual impact of the damage is said an offi- cial of the ministry of com- merce "But the over-all effect on industry has been com- paratively small' One measure of the destruc- tion is the amount of com- pensation paid out by Northern Ireland authorities for property damaged between August, 1969, and last March. During this period, 3 mil- lion was paid as compensation for buildings burned or blown up, vehicles hijacked and wrecked and other belongings lost. Most of the wrecked buildings were private houses, bars and shops Factories selected as bombing targets were usually small. Officials said to do effec- tive damage to a large factory requires great risk and high skill. Govern mant spokesmen brought out statistics to show that the bombing and shooting, while exacting a heavy human toll, has done little to slow pro- duction, son JOBS GOJVE Tliese figures showed only about 800 jobs were per- manently lost as a result of bomb damage Northern Ire- land statistics tend to be com- piled in terms of jobs lost or created, reflecting Ulsters pre- occupation with a chronically high unemployment rate. Unemployment is generally regarded as a root cause of the conflict between a Roman Cath- olic minority which regards it- self as underprivileged and a Protestant majority fearful of losing its economic advantages. The official figures indicate onemployment is actually fall- Ing The May total of job- less represented 5 9 per cent of the work force.
