He said the RCMP is an effi- cient, honest and human organi- zation. He would consider nny specific chirge made against it but indicated he would pay no attention to generalized criti- cism. Answering questions in the Commons, he said he had not read an article in Maclean's magazine by former RCMP cor- poral Jack Ramsey that was lii.ehly critical of (lie force. He said he would read it if he found time. Meanwhile, if there were any specific charges to be made against the police force "my door is open."

Mr. Goyer was answering questions from New Democrats Les Benjamin (Regina Lake Lome Nystron (York- David Orlikow (Winnipeg-North Doug Rowland NDP leader David Lewis and John Dieten- baker (PC-Prince CLAIMS MORALE IS LOW The article said that RCMP morale is at an all-time low, that suicides and alcoholism are a problem, RCMP officers per- jure themselves in court, they persecute Indians to build up their arrest statistics and they falsify reports. Commissioner W. L. Higgett has said that much of the arti- cle does not rate a reply, that morale in the force Is high and that with a force of per- sons it is inevitable that there will be some complaints. Mr. Goyer ignored sugges- tions from Mr. Benjamin for an independent inquiry into the force. He told Mr. Nystrom and Mr. Orlikow that the high proportion of Indians in western Orlikow said it was more than 50 per cent of the a serious problem not solely the work of the RCMP. The alien tion of researchers should be di reeled to the whole questio.n o] sentencing in Canada. Mr. Dlefcnbaker asked whether Commissioner Higgit had consulted with the ministe before commenting on the arti cle. He said when the commis sioner made a comment abou communism in Ottawa with th establishment of the embassy o the People's Republic of China Prime Minister Trudeau ha said the commissioner shoul not talk to the press. Mr. Goyer said Mr. Higgit had told him that he had spoke lo a reporter before reading th article and to another afte reading it. Earlier, Mr. Trudeau tol Wallace Nesbitt PC-Oxford tlia he had not read the article Asked whether some RCMP ar required to work 300 hours month with out overtime, th prime minister replied that would investigate whether th RCMP works harder than mem bers of Parliament.
