Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Solurdoy, Morth 1972 THE IETHBRIDGI! HERMD New Alberta bill of rights may bar Hutterite discrimination By JOHN EDMONTON (CP) Di.s- most defini- written into tlio law of Alberta. Tho discrimination has the backing of the Supreme Court of Canada and Hie support nf much of rural Alberta. The provincial government, liow- ever, is committed through election campaign promises to a bill of rights which would appear to bar such discrimi- nation. Tliis is the background to the conflict surrounding the government's d c c i s i o readied reopen the controversy that has al- ways surrounded the Huttcr- Alberta residents who live a strict, near-clois- tered life on rural communes. The Huttcritcs say this is so they can serve God belter. The Progressive Conserva- tive government which came Into office last August has de- cided In review the Com- munal Properly Act which states nt the beginning that it is specifically directed against liiilteritcs, Doukhobors and others who hold communal PROVIDES FINKS The act sets out fines of or a year in jail for Hut- tcrilcs or Doukholwrs who buy land for communal living or for anyone who sells it to Diem, without cabinet permis- sion. It aLio limits the size of communes. Saskatchewan has llut- terites but no legislation con- trolling them. However, a 19M agreement between the gov- ernment and Hutterite leaders is still in effect and contains many provisions similar to Al- berta's legislation.

The agreement, how- ever, was never ratified by the legislature and has no legal fooling. Few argue that the Alberta acl, in specifically directing prohibitions sgainsl two reli- gious groups, does not consti- tute some form of discrimina- tion, defined by the dictionary as tho observation of a differ- ence or distinction. But many Albertans say that discrimination may bo necessary because restrictions on Hutterites are essential due to economics, not religion. Hulleriles occupy acres of farm land in Alberta, or 1.2 per cent of the total, mostly in the southern part of the province. They keep mainly to themselves, are ef- ficient farmers and frequently bypass local merchants lo buy in bulk at wholesale prices in the cities. The population of colonies has traditionally dou- bled every 17 years, causing the formation of new colonies. They have aroused fear and hostility suice their founding as a product of the Proteslant Kcfonnation in central Eu- rope in the 16th century. Morris Davis and Joseph F. Krautcr described the problem in the book The Olher Canadi- ans: It is no easy matter to accommodate a group such as the HuUeriles, who, even while constituting no positive threat, nevertheless ada- mantly refuse to participate in any meaningful way in the social, cultural and political life of the larger community. Such a stance is sure, it must be admitted, to arouso fear and misiuiderslanding among tho majority." UPHELD Complaints about the Hut- teriles led the Social Credit government of the time to pass the Communal Property Act in 1M7. Tho Hutterites tried a court test of the bill in 1069, arguing that it dealt with religion and thus was beyond the authority of the Alberta government. Tho Supreme Court, however, ruled unanimously lhat the bill dealt with land ownership in the province, a matter Trudeau aides eye election By DAVE MelNTOSll OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau Is facing a wholesale departure of his top aides.

LAING NOT RUNNING Mr. Laing already lias an- nounced he will not run again. Mr. Gibson, 33, was once ex- ecutive assistant to Mr. Laing and one of the chief early pro- moters, along with Mr. Lai- onde, of Mr. Trudeau for prime minister. Francis Fox, another special assist- ant to the prime minister, is said to be on the lookout for a riding in which to seek the Liberal nomination. Dave Thomson, a year political adviser to Mr. Trudeau as chief regional desk officer, may seek a prai- rie seat though Liberal c'naiLCes in the west do not ap- pear auspicious at the mom- ent.

Among top advisers to Mr. Tnideau not planning to nra for election are Gordon Rob- ertson, secretary to the cabi- net and a civil servant; Ivan Head, foreign affairs trouble- shooter; Jim Davey, thinker- in-residence; and Michael Pit- Held, a deputy cabinet secre- tary who accompanied Mr. Trudeau and his wife on their Caribbean honeymoon last year. WATER ROUTE It is possible to travel all the way from the Rockies to the Atlantic by water or even to turn west or north to reach the Pacific or Arctic. within the jurisdiction of the provincial legislature. The government later set up a board to administer the act and give it more flexibility. The original requirement that no new Hutterite colony could be located within 40 miles of an existing colony was re- duced to a "guideline" of 15 miles. But in December Hie new Progressive Conservative gov- ernment dismissed Use board. Municipal Affairs Minister Davo Russell, whose mcnt administers the act, said the dismissal resulled from a written promise tlio board made to a municipal district, saying that no new Hutterite colonies would be established there. Conservatives not told of this commitment when Uiey took over from Social Credit after the Aug. 30 pro- vincial election, he said, Nev- ertheless, three months later the board recommended ap- proval o' a new colony to same area. The government said in dis- missing the board that it would use the opportunity to review the whole concept of the communal properties leg islatioa which, Mr. Russell said, "does not appear en- tirely satisfactory-" No changes would be ex- pected until possibly this fall and no applications for new Hulterite colonies will be con- sidered until a decision is made, he said.
