Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thuradoy, March THI ifTHtRIBOf HWAID Misplaced and Misdirected? Slave Lake affair criticized by Manning EDMONTON (CP) Pres- ion Manning, head of a Slave Lake Development Camp any, said Wednesday the recent fur- ore about the Slave Lake af- fair was "misplaced and mis- directed." Sir. -Warning, eon of former AXerta premier Emest Man- ning, said politicians and the press have done "injustice" in playing up the investigation of tliree area residents by RCMP. He said in an Interview the real problem facing Slave Lake "is far more important than the controversy between an American draft dodger and lo- cal politicians." Mr. Manning was referring to the investigation o( Bruce Tho- mas, the Z4-year-oM publisher of a Slave Lake weekly news- paper, Al Burger, 32, of Faust, and Floyd Gicsbach, 56, of Wa- basca. Attorney General Merv Leltch and Al Adair, minister withou1, portfolio responsible for northern develop m e n t, later openly apologized for au- thorizing the investigation after being accused of violating the Conservative government's own Bill of Rights. Mr. Thomas, who said he came from the United as "conscientious objector" to the Vtojam War, and the other two had been critical of government programs in the Slave Lake area. "Attacks on town councilmea by an American newspaper- man and his friends have re- ceived widespread Mr. Manning said. "Investigation of these Indiv- iduals by the HCMP has raised a human rights issue and both press and politicians have wax- ed eloquently about the alleged injustice of this foolish action." But "the sad thing about all this furore is that it is Resolution proposes treaty to punish terrorists acts ally misplaced and misdirect he said. Mr. Manning's company has several development projects n Slave Lake "to show what ree enterprise can do" to a epressed area. His company, Slave Lake )evelopments, has received In grants given equally rom the federal and provin- ial governments, he said. Mr. Manning said because of lie attention given to the in- estigatlon, the growth story hat has turned Slave Lake rom a depressed economic rea Mo a prosperous region- al centre has been buried.

Green, chairman of the Can- aidan Council on International law's committee against terror- ism has formulated a draft resolution he hopes could lead to an international treaty against terrorist acls. The University of Alberta pol- itical science professor says he will arrange a committee meet- ing to discuss the proposal. He said he is "fed up" with in- creasing numbers of terrorist acts going unpunished Prof. Green, a former dean of the University of Singapore Law School and a prosecutor with the British army during the Second World War, said in an interview ho hopes an incr- national convention can be held on the council's initiative. The recent murder of two Americans and one Belgian dip- lomat by Arab guerrillas in Sudan underlines the need for fuKuVj effective means to com- bat terrorist acts, he said. The resolution calls on the council, representing Canadian teachers and practitioners of in- ternational Saw to recognize the basic rights of people to self- determination. This would include "a peo- ple's right to revolt against its government, the right of non- self-governing peoples to sel determination, and to talc against, an administration denying such right the mea sures necessary to achieve it. But the resolution condemns acts of terrorism against inno- cent third parties. It also ouf lines terrorist acts wHch ca be regarded as violating cas tomary and conventional law as the general principles rec ognized by civilized nations rig local development. I do not deny that right, though 1 have no respect for the irre- sponsible manner ta which was exercised." He raid while this oc- curring "DO politician of stature has uttered a aingto wort in defence the righto and Integrity at local residents, town coundlmen and civil ser- vants, who after all have made this development plan work." Part of the problem with de- veloping communities, he said, Is that community leaders of- ten wear several hats busi- nessmen while also elected of- ficials. "Maybe what Is needed is some form of ombudsman who can rule on matters." He said the problem of conflicting In- terests is inherent with region- al development.

Political leadership question topic for gossip in Ottawa By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Parliament Hill gossip these days inevitably centres around the question of political leadership. Whither Pierre Elliott who in four short years brought nance Minister John Turner. He Trudeau, Robert Slanfield and David Lewis? Jtout observers agree that New Democratic Party Leader Lewis will be forced to give up the reins o! his party if not be- fore the next federal election, immediately after. Suggests one Parliament Hill veteran: "The trouble witti the KDP under Lewis is that he has allowed the Conservatives to seize the initiative and appeal to many as the protest party of the nation. Lewis lacks youth and so. increasingly, docs his party. He's riding in the politi- cal arena of the 1970s in a T Ford." There's a widespread feeling o.i the Hill that, because of its support of the Liberal govern- ment and the traditional history ot minority governments, the NDP will lose many of its 31 his party up from1 72 to 107 j seats and humiliated the dar- ling of should be unpopular within his own party. Perhaps the Liberals just want to see Stantield out be- cause if he isn't he might well be in after the next federal 24 Sussex Drive, that is. More than a year ago reports were circulating on Parliament Hill that many, top Liberals wanted Trodeau out. There were reports from seats day. come the next election After that, Lewis would have no alternative but to resign. across English-speaking Canada that bilingualism was going to cost the Liberals votes, rerxwts of disenchantment in the West, of high unemployment and gal- loping inflation, and of the rip- corpirate and other- wise annoying voters. Trudeau fought off the attack and convinced the party hier- achy he could win a majority again. Right up to Oct. Mtli top Lib- erals were predicting 160 seats. Come Oct. Mth Trudean had managed to bring his govern- ment seats down from 155 to dizzy days of 109 now. So it's inevitable that unless The futures of both 'Prime j Trudeau can do something fast Minister Trucleau and Progres- s i v e Conservative leader Stanlield arc more difficult to predict. To listen (o (lie Liberals, the Conservative rank and file want to get Stanfielcl out now and hand over the parly to rising stars such as Quebecker Claude Wagner, who runs the PC ma- chine 'in Quebec; Ontario Pre- mier Bill Davis or, far into the to win back his waning popu- larity the tornado of '68 will go. But he isn't likely to go with- out a figlif. The prime minister is dedi- cated to making the 'French fact' a reality in Canada, and he has repeated tliis since last Oct. 30. "It's going to take picks and shovels to get that guy out of I says one Opposition fulure, Alberta premier Peter MP.

CAP) The Fuzz are swinging their way into the hearts of local teen-agers. Three policemen make up the pop-group that was started on the spur of the mo.- menl. Patrolman Hike Mond.ti, J.7, was on duty at a dance someone, hearing that Monelti played the guitar, asked him lo demonstrate. So Mouclti and patrolmen Larry Falcetano and Rick Richardella started rehears- ing. And within a month. The Fuzz had played at their first dance, The dances are called "Cop Hops' and those that aren't benefits for specific organ- izations raise funds for high school scholarship programs. The presence of three po- licemen seems to have a cal- ming effect at the dances. Once, "a slight altercation be- said one of the musi- Vins. But when the music stopped and the three police- men rushed from the stage, order was quickly restored. The popularity of the combo has spilled over to their po- lice work. While directing traffic on street corners, they've been asked for autographs. Monet- ti, called to break up a gath- ering in the centre of town one evening, ended up teach- ing a group guitar chords. makes no secret of the fact that he wants the leadership, and he tried for it in 68. In the Commons these days some MPs taunt Trudeau by asking Turner a question and then asking a supplementary question to the finance minis- ter's "second in command, the prime minister." That hits home in a nasty way. But other possibilities are aiso being mentioned. The two newest no one really knows how the ru- mors Justice Min- ister Otto Lang and Defence Minister James Hicliardson. The two have appeal at least for one obvious reason, they are both westerners. Lang is MP for Saskatoon-Humboldt, Rich- ardson for Winnipeg South. Tlie Liberals, of course, were just about wiped out in Western Canada Oct. 30th, Out of 68 Western seats they held just seven. Both men are politically clean. Lang is a former dean of law at the University of Sas- katchewan. Richardson, who for sc-me reason Trudeau allowed to with the supply and cervices portfolio before moving him up to defence, hails from j one of Manitoba's most re- speeted families. What of the men who chal- lenged Trudeau for the lead- ership back in 68? Very HI tie. Apart from Mr. Turner, the others are in no position to bid for the leadership again.
