Rancher H. F. O'Hanlon said there has teen such indiscrimi- nate shooting "our lives are in jeopardy out here during hunt- ing season." Also, in the summer there are so many youngsters with .22 calibre rifles that "some- tunes it's not safe to venture out of your house." Altho'ugh a large number ol land owners have posted signs prohibiting shooting on their property, they are often ig- nored, he said. D. A. Lcnlhon, secretary treasurer of the municipality, said the new bylaw will call for fines and HCMP enforce- ment. The municipality of Foothills, which border's Calgary on the south, introduced a similar bylaw last year but tabled il indefinitely after first reading. Bill Percy, president of the Calgary Fish and Game Assoc- iation, said the bylaw will bo a hardship to hunters and will not solve problems which occur oulside the hunting season. In the County of Parkland west of Edmonton a similar shooting ban was made around the town of Stony Plain anc alleviated similar problems, said secretary treasurer Otto Shuster. pendency on welfare which saps the family ami the community and to replace it with a free and independent, self-supporting way of life lhal is appropriate in Indian eyes and in Indian ways."

In the din of a Commons up- oar, NDP Leader David aid Mr. Trudeau had made a eprehensible attack on an offi- or of Parliament and Mr. Tru- .eau said Mr. Ixjwis has a 'twisted mind." The Conservatives kept siiout- r.g at Mr. Trudeou "go to the xople, go to the people." By law, the 1071 annual report o Parliament by Mr. Hender- ,on, the overseer of government .pending, should have been suh- nilled to Parliament by last Mr. Henderson has said it is ate again l.his year for several reasons, including a staff short- ,ge and because he has found in jovernment accounts "more er- rors lhan we have ever encoun- ered before." NOT STEPPING IN Mr. Trudcau told the Com- .rams Wednesday that Mr.. Hen- derson had not handed his re- problem facing Canadian Indi ans was "culture shock." "This can be described as the effect that immersion in strange culture has on the un prepared visitor." He said that in the last tw decades the white man has no been able to keen up with tech nological and cultural changes. "We are now subjecting our selves to the stresses that wi have subjected wi cannot handle them. We have demandec that the Indian people abandon a stable, traditional way of lif that served them for thousand of years. Too often non-Indian society has demanded that you people should become ins-tan white men. It was never poss ble, if it had been, it was neve desirable."

"If Parliament wants to con- done his breaking the law that's fine but the government is not stepping into the he continued in reply to Douglas Harkness The uproar died down (or sev- eral minules but Mr, re- turned to the subject at the end of Hie question period. Mr. Lewis said he did not in- tend to let the prime minister accuse him of condoning law- breaking. If Mr. Trudeau were right, be should have the courage to produce a Commons resolu- tion to censure Mr. Hender- son. Mr. Trudeau said the opposi- tion had brought up Mr. Hen- derson's not the government. He had not recommended cen- sure as, he said, Mr. Lewis had. Perhaps Mr. Lewis would him- I present a resolution if he had the courage of his convic- tions. UPROAR RESUMES Another uproar of angry shouting broke out. Mr. Lewis said Mr. Trudc-au was twisting his words. Mr. Trudcau said he did nol have to do twisted mind does it for him." Speaker Lucien Lamoureux vainly called for order as some Conservatives chanted "Go to the people." Mr. Trudeau suggested that tire matter of the late report could go before the Commons public accounts committee whose chairman is Conservative Alfred D. Hales. The prime minister declined further comment outside the Commons but Opposition Leader Robert Slanfield and Mr. Lewis had plenty. Mr. Stanfield said the govern- ment has a deliberate strategy to deprive Mr. Henderson of the resources he feels are neces- sary to inspect the govern- ment's accounts. He said Mr, Henderson has a difficult conflict of obligations: To do his report on time or to do a proper job. The auditor general should get the staff he needs. Mr. Henderson said Tuesday the government has hurt morale and cfficienty in his office by downgrading his staff and refus- ing to hire more personnel. Mr. Lewis said the govern- ment is not particularly anxious to have the auditor-general's re- port out by election time. Tho government refused Mr. Henderson the tools to do his job and then accused him of breaking the law. About Mr. Trudeau's "twisted mind" crack, Mr. Lewis said: "I think he is a spoiled and he always has been." The prime minister's popular- ity was waning, he was losing his cool and "just can't take it." NEED MONEY FAST? to OR ANY AMOUNT ANY REASON REDUCE PAYMENTS BY MORE THAN 50% FREE HOUSE APPRAISAL!
