IETHBRIDGE, AlBERTA Aik aboul Photogray The ens that chongei wilh Alberta, Monday, March 6, 1972 PAGES 9 TO is in safe Canadians can be assured of their country's continuing in-tegrily ministers such as Stale Secretary Gerard Pel-leticr in c h a r g p, Douglas Bowie, one of Uic minister's special assistants, said in Leth-britSgc on (he Mr. a Lotlibridge na-live son, was here both on business ant to visit his wife's fani-i y, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Morion of Warner, and his brother Dr. Gary Howie of tho University of Lethbridge. His own parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. G. (Miko) Bowie, now live in Calgary. Mr. Bowie's special responsibilities with Mr. Pctleticr are mainly in the broadcasting and youth fields. He was instrumental in cutting together the Opportunities for Youth program. Jle learned French on a church mission in France, then completed his degree, an honor BA m politics, at the University of Calgary, and 'went east to study the essential bilingual na urc of Canada at first hand. Questioned by The Herald about criticism in (he West of Quebec and She French dominating the federal 5 liands Mr. Bowie said Uiis is far from .he truth. Until just a. few years _ ago and even under Prime Minister Louis St. Laurent's administration, he said, the French-Canadian national identity was limited lo that one province, irtosl French-Canadians paid little attention to their Canadian citizenship. Canac a, mean) Quebec, and it was all right with the English-speaking Ca-diims that they should feel (hat way. Hut with the "quiet revolution" in Quebec this lo ch s nge. Either Quebec woul c separate or French-Canadians would have to identify with the whole of Canada. Two factions developed, one lo push each course. The separatists and Jie federalists arc still contending for the hearts and minds of the Qutbec people. Tlie Tnideau-Ttfarchand-Pel-letter team has brought a number of excellent pro-Canadian politicians to Ottawa from Que-bqc, and a number of extremely capable civil servants dedicated to making Canada the national home of French-Canadians, Mr. Bowie said. But the process is far from overdone. While the trend to a bilingual civil service must lie pursued, French-Canadians are still less than adequately represented in the administration of their country, h! there is any resentment o this, Mr, Bowie said, it is on failure to adjust to the rather sudden emergence of Quebec into the national scene, and to admit the rights of French-Canadians as unhyphenated Canadians. "We got along with them fine as long as they stayed Mr. Bowie said, "but now tha (hey are acting like Canadians we object to it." He said lie has been i m-pressed wi th 1 he sens i tiv itv and sincerity of Pelletier m the i mplementa tion of pollcic that adequately reflect the di ferent realities which make u Canada.

It was noted that alcoholism generally not occur immediately but was brought on by continued overuse, Indians frequently use alcohol to overcome social proteins encountered when confronted by a white winch has been allienafed against Indians. This alienation in turn results in a degree of loss of self respect, which is temporarily overcome by the use of liquor. However, tho use of alcohol creates additional problems which cause more drinking until the vicious circle often ends with premature death due to body breakdowns with occur from alcohol abuse. The workshop pointed out the phases of alcohol abuse leading to alcoholism and its costs-mental, physical and financial. However, once native persons have secured productive jobs with good training and pay, the dependence on alcohol diminishes. During the early months of operation at Kainai Industries on the Blood reserve, a high degree of absenteeism was noted among native employees. This was attributed directly to alcohol. Since then the absenteeism rate has dropped to three per cent. Five percent absenteeism is considered normal by industry in Canada. The low absenteeism rate resulted from a restoration of a sense of purpose.
