Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, June 21, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Water warning issued Rape victims protected under revised laws CALGARY (CP) City officials, alarmed with sharply increased water consumption in the current hot-weather spell, have asked Calgarians to conserve water. Otherwise, there may be trouble ahead. Fire Chief Derek Jackson said unless residents curb wasting water, there may be big trouble when a major fire occurs. And if the city's emergency water supply drops below a required minimum, insurance rates would go up. The Insurance Underwriters Association requires that a city of Calgary's size to have gallons of water available every minute for firefighting. If there isn't, up goes the already spiralling insurance rates, the fire chief said.

OTTAWA (CP) Protec- tion of the victim is the main idea of Criminal Code amendments proposed Thurs- day by Justice Minister Otto Lang. The first proposal, announc- ed after a cabinet meeting, is designed to prevent the vic- tim's character from being impugned during a rape trial. Others being considered in- clude one that would facilitate a change of the scene of the trial from the victim's these will be formulated later. bonus for sheep producers EDMONTON (CP) The provincial government will give sheep producers for every ewe lamb they keep for breeding purposes, an agriculture department spokesman said Thursday. The program which begins July 1. will replace a lamb production incentive payment of per hundredweight of live Iamb sold for slaughter in Alberta. The old program was set up to offset high feed costs in producing slaughter lambs. A prepared statement re- leased during a news confer- ence with Mr. Lang referred only to women as victims of sexual assault, but he told re- porters that the revised laws would apply also to victims of homosexual attacks. "While we must continue to guarantee justice for an ac- he said, "we must strive harder to protect the victim, to protect innocent women from embarrassment. We must protect the women of this country from any unnecessary exposure to HAROLD CARDINAL Television trials cut alcoholism MOSCOW (AFP) Televised broadcasts of the trials of alcoholics have helped cut alcoholism in one Soviet city by more than half, the Communist party newspaper Pravda reported today. Pravda said "several dozen notorious alcoholics" were made to attend the trial in Minsk of a factory worker sen- tenced to two years imprisonment for alcoholism. The worker was accused of "returning home daily drunk, scandalous behavior on the public highway and beating his wife and children." The trial was televised and photographs were put up in all popular parts of the district. The result, Pravda said, was that 96 out of 140 known alcoholics in the district took the pledge. New diet drug undergoes tests EDMONTON (CP) A new hormone drug which can be taken to ease the problem of dieting, is being tested by the Alberta College of Physicians and Surgeons, the registrar says. Dr. L. H. Le Riche said that the new drug, when taken with a 500 calorie diet, can reduce depression, which is often quite high with such a limited diet, and makes the diet more bearable for the patient in- volved. The college is now studying the drug to make sure that it is completely safe for the public. "We are not satisfied that it is safe." said Dr. Le Riche. "We have ordered research to be done on the drug and the patients must be informed about the advantages and the possibility that it may not work, before he actually takes part in the study. The research project on the new drug will be followed very closely by the Alberta Health Care Insurance Commission which will make the treat- ment available to Albertans under the medicare fund if they are satisfied with the studv. The commission now is pay- ing for the price asked by in- dividual doctors dealing with patients with diet problems. The first visit, which is a complete medical ex- amination, will cost to At this first meeting the doc- tor must determine whether the problem of obesity is one of eating too much or whether the person has a disease. Repeat visits are about S3 to depending on how often the patient returns and how bad the problem remains. Dr. Le Riche said. While the commission is financially supporting diet treatment now. they will have to examine new programs in the future. After research has been done on the new types of treatment and has been approved by the college then the commission can go ahead and support such programs. "The commission is like a consumer. It has to decide on the price and whether the program or new treatment is worth supporting. It's all up to the commission to decide." said Dr. Le Riche. Crippling Quebec walkout ends QUEBEC tion workers are to return to their jobs Tuesday, ending an industry-wide strike that has tied up nearly every construc- tion site in Quebec for two weeks. Now in its second week, the stnke followed refusal by four of six employers associations to reopen an industry-wide contract for cost-of-living wage adjustments. The workers retaliated with a work slowdown campaign that eventually got them lock- ed out. Premier Robert Bourassa Thursday announced an agree- ment had been reached with 70.000-member Quebec Feder- ation of Labor to order its men back on the job in compliance with a government directive. Two days ago, Mr. Bourassa said if workers had not agreed to return to their jobs within 48 hours, the government would take "whatever means necessary" to end the strike. Some workers had returned to work early Thursday as sites in Quebec City, Montreal, Drummondville and Hull were reopened, but the majority of the province's 90.000 workers staved home. public commentary. To do this, we will consider Criminal Code amendments to ensure that the details of any alleged crime and the name of the victim not be used in the press." Mr. Lang noted that most newspapers and broadcast outlets voluntarily avoid carrying the victim's name and details of the crime, but he felt that supportive legisla- tion might be advisable to control publications that specialize in scandals. There were "some very serious policy media control among them, that had to be considered carefully before any firm decision. But the justice minister was fairly certain about an amend- ment that would facilitate the change of venue, although this is currently done in some cases. For example, it likely would become routine when a person was sexually assaulted in a small town where everyone knows everyone else. Although a change of venue would create problems for the prosecution and others involv- ed in the trial, Mr. Lang felt the difficulties were outweigh- ed by the benefits gained by the victim in terms of privacy and dignity. The Bill of Rights apparent- ly presents a problem because it conflicts with the privacy proposals by stipulating that everyone is entitled to a public trial. This is because the judicial system wants to avoid an In- quisition atmosphere in which the accused can be treated in any fashion the court deems permissible, but Mr. Lang said that publicity is un- desirable in most sex cases. His proposals, "while eas- ing the burden on the victim, will not in any way stop the accused and his lawyers from properly presenting the case." He said existing legislation does not permit a fair trial be- cause some defence lawyers use the legal process to belit- tle and intimidate the com- plainant. 'Indian cathedrals' guarded EDMONTON (CP) The president of the Indian Associ- ation of Alberta (IAA) said Thursday "immediate legal steps" will be taken to block industrial development on the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains if development plans are approved by Alber- ta's Environment Conserva- tion Authority. Harold Cardinal told dele- gates at the opening session of the IAA annual meeting on the Enoch Indian Reserve south of here that the association will "protect the sanctity of our mountains and assert our ownership of our cathedrals." He said the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains are "In- dian cathedrals." "We would not consider put- ting oil wells or coal mines in the whiteman's cathedrals, neither would we expect or want them to do so in ours." Mr. Cardinal, in his sixth annual report as leader of the organization that says it repesents Alberta's treaty Indians on 42 Indian reserves, said the eastern slopes were never sur- rendered in treaties with the Crown. "This area of Alberta was meant to be available to all peoples interested in getting to know themselves and their relationship to their en- he said. "We cannot be party to. or support, those developers whose eyes are on the area primarily for the sake of dollar profit. The profits from industrial development in these areas could never repay the loss incurred nor heal the wounds on nature that would result." The IAA presented a. brief to the Environment Conserva- tion Authority one year ago during hearings on develop- ment of the slope. The brief asked that no development be allowed because the land is still the property of Alberta Indians. Mr. Cardinal also told dele- gates that work is continuing on draft amendments to the Indian Act. The amendments will be presented in August to a meeting of the National In- dian Brotherhood in Van- couver. He said "we see a real op- portunity to ensure that for the first time since the incep- tion of the Indian Act in 1868 by the federal government to have federal legislation that will reflect the spirit and terms of our "We see further an op- portunity to create the legal basis required for progress with stability in all aspects of Indian life. It will force us to think about the future vehicles and systems required in deal- ing with the education of our people, in their representation and local government, and the economic development of In- dian communities." He said the draft amend- ments would also clarify the status of Indian women who marry non-Indian men. SAND gravel ASPHALT iTOLLESTRUP1 SAND and GRAVEL f Construction Co.
