Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 - THB lETHBRIDGE HERALD - Sahirddy, March 6, 1971 ParliMmentary Notehaok Cadieux may get vice-regal post OTTAWA (CP) - Tliere is speculation o n Parliament Hill that Leo Cadieux, 62-year-old Canadian ambassador to France, will be named the next governor-general. The five-year term of the present Governor-General, Roland M i c h e n e r, expires' next year. Mr. Cadieux was a popular figure with all parties in the Commons, even as defence minister, a post in which popularity is not conraion. Canada's last French-speaking Governor-General, Gen. Georges Vanier who died in office in 1967, served as Canadian ambassador to France. The "in" thing on Parlia-mient Hill these days', as elsewhere, is conservation or the environment or ecology or the biosphere or whatever title is used.

In 1909. then prime minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier established a Canadian Commission of Conservation on the initiative of Sir Clifford Sifton, minister of the interior. The commission died of neglect in 1921 and the conservation movement g r a d-ually petered out.

By the year 2000 Canada's population may be 40 million, 94 per cent urban. On this basis alone, officials say, the present concern with conservation should be permanent. Phil Givens, liberal MP for York West and former mayor of Toronto, is one of the more frustrated back-benchers in the Commons. He says good-naturedly that he expected his oratory to set the Commons on fire about urban problems. But he found that practically nobody was listening and, anyway, there were few good speaking opportunities. Nobody even asks a backbencher for the correct time, Mr. Givens says. Along the same lines, Paul St. Pierre. Liberal MP for Coast-Cliilcotin, says he had more power as a newspaper columnist than he does as an MP. There art 78 restaurants or cafeterias in federal buildings in Ottawa, nearly all of them catering to civil servants. A small group of Conserva-itives who had talked of forming a "real Conservative p^ty" have apparently dropped the idea and are closing ranks around their leader, Robert Stanfield. Members of the group were never identified clearly but were mainly from the West. They oppose such proposals as tile guaranteed annual income-as does the government at presenl>-and want the Conservatives to concentrate on the traditional pri-vateienterprise approach. Car seats unsafe for children "Anything Goes" TORONTO (CP) - Most car seats and restraints for children are unsafe, Joy Moon, head of the child safety division of the Consumers* Association of Canada, said here. TUks. Moon said in an interview cddy two of the nine safety devices recommended by the Ontario Safety League provide a satisfactory degree of safety. George Ham, manager of the family safety department of the Ontario Safety League, said his organization recommends nine specific car seats and restraints for children. But because there is no Canadian legisktioa governing standards, the league endorses all devices that meet U.S. federal motor vehicles standard 213, effective April 1. Tm just horrified that they (the Ontario Safety League) should even mention some of them," said Mrs. Moon. "Parents will be lulled into a false sense of security that they are safe." She described the U.S. legislation as being so "watered-down" it will dio little to ensure safety for children. TEST STRENGTH Ifie only test U.S.-manufao-tured devices undergo to be approved is one to determine strength, she said. "But this gives no indication of what will happen in a car crash." Mrs. Moon estimates one million of more than two million Canadian children four years of age or less use seats or restraints. "But there are fewer than 1,000 seats in the whole country that can be considered satisfactory," she said. Mrs. Moon said of 37 s^ety seats and restraining devices tested by the University of Michigan, only two provided satisfactoiy protection for children. Some were found to Increase the danger to children in a coUi-sioD, she said. Mrs. Moon said the most dan)- TAX ADVICE FREE/CONFIDENTIAL Free advice on income tax problems is as close as your phone.

TAXATION REVENU NATIONAL IMPOT gerous type was the chair that hooked on to an ordinary car seat. Tests showed it tended to fly off in a collision. SEAT CRUSHES DUMMY "When you see films (of the test) and watch how a $24.95 seat with lots of padding crushes up a dummy, it sticks in your mind," said Mrs. Moon. She is also critical of safety harnesses that strap children securely to seats but provide no protection for their heads. "(Children differ from adults in that their heads are as much as one-third of their total weight. An adult's head is about one-tenth of his total weight." Thus in a collision, when a child's body is firmly secured but his head is not, "he suffers no brain concussion but has a broken neck." Mrs. Moon has been working for the last six months to have Ottawa pass legislation governing the manufacture and sale of safety seats and devices in Canada. No aspirin in early pregnancy LONDON (AP) - Women should avoid aspirin and certain indigestion pUls during the early stages of pregnancy as they may lead to deformities in the unborn chUd, said a report published Friday in the authoritative British Medical Journal. Prof. John Forfar and Dr. Matilda Nelson, child health experts of Edinburgh University, wrote that some types of sleeping pills and appetite suppressants carry the same risk. The physicians said they found in a study a significantly higher proportion of abnormal births among mothers using aspirin during the early weeks of pregnancy, especially during the first 28 days. Major abnormalities also were blamed on the use of antacid pills containing sodium bicarbonate and other similar powders for the relief of excess stomach acids'. Barbitoate sleeping plUs also were discovered to have been taken by "a very significantly higher" number of mothers suffering abnormal births. Amphe-tamine-taMng also was prevalent in the same group of women. Pavement to end at High Level PEACE RIVER (CP) - The Mackenzie Highway will not be paved north of High Level in the foreseeable future, Bob Wiebe, member of the legislature for Peace River, said here. If the province cannot get a cost - sharing agreement with the federal government, it's doubtful the province will pave beyond High Level, Mr. Wiebe said in an interview. He said the province had approached the federal government officials with a cost-sharing proposal, but they expressed no interest.
