Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD-Tuwdijr, March Lethbridge council could rejuvenate interest in citizenship A declining interest in citizenship and a duplication of effort by community service organizations could both be avoided through the formation of a citizenship council in Lethbridge That is the message a former president of the Edmonton citizenship council brought to Lethbridge in hopes of encouraging the citi- zens of this city to establish a non-profit citi- zenship council. The council, J. L. Wilford suggested in an interview, would take on the role in Lethbridge of co-ordinating the efforts of existing organizations so the element of good citizenship is the common goal Political, ethnic, religious, cultural and service organizations would all elect a representative to the council The citizenship council would then establish its own executive and goals, Mr. Wilford said. "Patriotism is almost a lost thing today... and I think it is he said while explaining the need for good citizenship Beer drought should end A local beer drought, caused by Lethbridge Alberta Liquor Control Board employees leaving work for "study" sessions Saturday and Monday, should end today. Local beer parlors were forced to ration off-premise sales Monday because their supplies ran low when they couldn't get their normal stocks from the closed liquor board warehouse. Thirsty customers were more than willing to pay for a case of beer from the parlors when liquor stores ran out of cases sold there for But the liquor board clerks are not planning on any "studying" today. And beer supplies should be back to normal 2 acquitted Charges of breaking and entering were dismissed Monday against two 18-year- old Lethbridge men. Brian Neil Clampitt, 1112 llth St N and Gary Lome LaFournie, 1506 7th Ave. N were acquitted in provincial court on charges of breaking into Trans-Canada Freezers Ltd 2nd Ave. N and 28th St, with intent. The court accepted the argument of defense counsel that the two did not intend to commit an offence once inside Clampitt and La Fournie broke into the business to see a friend who was working there at the time, court was told He suggested it was time Albertans found their identity by creating an Alberta heritage The Alberta heritage will soon just be "a blur" if people in this province don't make a concerted effort to proudly promote their past and the culture of the many different people who have taken up residence here, Mr. Wilford says. "In Alberta we don't have an identity and unless we do something to unite existing ethnic societies with the Canadian Indian all Albertans will eventually end up on their own little individual islands without any particular ties to the other people in this province." he said. Mr Wilford also speculated that Alberta will become "the promised land" in the near future to people from all over the world because of its abundance of energy resources in the time of a world energy crisis. An organization like the citizenship council would be able to help the immigrants settle in the province and instil in them the pride of being an Albertan and a Canadian, he said. In addition, the newcomers would soon feel at home because the citizenship council would honor every culture in the world within the boundaries of citizenship in Canada. The council would also enhance the act of becoming a citizen by giving it more promotion and officially welcoming every new citizen Daryl Sturrock, a former member of the Edmonton citizenship council and now a Lethbridge resident, said she invited Mr. Wilford to promote the council in Lethbridge because "the people are segregated here. Nobody knows each other." She claims service organizations and other groups "can't get two per cent support from the people in this city." And, she said, there is an obvious "lack of communication" between the various organizations and groups in the city. This lack of communication has created a situation where several groups are often attempting to provide the same service, she said. Mr. Willford said duplication of effort is avoided through the citizenship council because each organization and group in the city would have a representative on the council who would know what the other groups are doing. For the citizenship council to function effectively as a co-ordinating organization in the city, a "strong leader is required to handle the aggressiveness of certain organizations." A strong leader could direct the ambitions of each organization and group in the council toward the common goal of good citizenship rather than toward the goals of various individuals, he said The groups and organizations within the council, Mr. Willford said, can help each other obtain funds from the public and the government. Fort Macleod briefs Mr. Willford, now a controller with Burns Foods Limited in Calgary, said the Edmonton citizenship council played a strong role in the development of a human rights commission in the province. It also helped a number of Hungarian immigrants adapt to Alberta and Canadian life when a great number of them moved to Edmonton a few years ago. The council, he said, also established many service organizations in Edmonton such as the friendship centre to meet the specific needs of certain people who were not being helped by any other organization. Once the new organization is able to operate on its own, the council withdraws from the operation of it Individuals and groups interested in obtaining more details on the function of a citizenship council in Lethbridge should contact Information Lethbridge at 329-0636.

Douglas Fry Town not notified mayor disqualified FORT MACLEOD (HNS) Mayor George Buzunis' replacement was not chosen by town council Monday because the town has not received official notification of his disqualification. Mayor Buzunis was dis- qualified Feb. 15 when an Alberta Supreme Court decision was handed down saying the town erred in selling the mayor a lot without having advertised it to the general public The mayor was disqualified from sitting on town council He is appealing the decision. Coun Phil Hodnett acted as deputy-mayor Monday Town foreman George Boda was named superintendent replacing Pete Wiebe who resigned Jan. 31 Mr. Boda told council he does not need an assistant Members of the town crew will take over when emergencies take him out of town. The salary, retroactive to Feb 1, was discussed in a closed committee meeting RCMP Sgt. Wilf Becker and Coun. John Davis will study a stop sign at 15th St. and 2nd Ave. that could be changed to a yield sign. If they have no objection, the necessary bylaw will be drafted. The Midnight Snowmobilers Club's request that snow be hauled by town crews to Midnight Stadium was handed to the town solicitor to see what insurance liabilities the town might be taking on. Council took no action on a suggestion that part of 25th Street, now closed, be opened for a fire lane. Fire trucks are forced to make a U-turn to answer alarms as the situation now stands. Coun. Davis warned council the town has a responsibility to its citizens regarding the burned out hulk of the former Kingston Building About two weeks ago owner Albert Swinarton asked the town to put "no parking" signs in the vicinity to partition it off for demolition crews. Monday the reason for the request was apparent as a wall fell, motivated by heavy winds, and crushed a car and truck parked below. A demolition crew is to be in town within a week. A letter from the Fort Macleod Chamber of Commerce spurred council's action to get the fence along the river repaired. Indians are said to vandalise it continually. It is a danger to children playing in the area. Council has not had a hard- and-fast rule regarding the sale of town lots. Now it has. Applicants must send a written application and payment in full must be offered before council turns its attention to land sales. B. J. Viens of Fort Macleod has applied for property to build three homes and an apartment building on one development west of 1st Ave. It will open a new residential area here. It was referred to the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission. Meeting set Wednesday on Pincher hospital M Afi. S. KMMI LETHBRI06E REFRIGERATION LTD. WALK-IN 111 lift COOLHW ICC PINCHER CREEK
