Third Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, March 13, 1974 Pages 23-34 Doin all he can to keep them out of Canada Lalonde sticking to Kis guns on WFL The Herald OTTAWA (CP) Parliament probably will be asked soon to determine whether Toronto Northmen of the World Football League, or any other U.S. football team, will be allowed to in Canada. Health Minister Marc Lalonde said Tuesday lie will recommend to cabinet that action be taken to prevent this occurance and -a decision could be made in two weeks. The minister told reporters he prefers that prohibition against the WFL or the National Football League (NFL) be done through legislative means. He told the Commons earlier provision of the British Nqrth America Act could be used., Mr. Lalonde, whose portfolio makes him minister of sport, made his remarks after ah hour-long meeting with Toronto businessman John Bassett Jr., part-owner of the Northmen. NO PROGRESS MADE No future meetings were scheduled and no progress was reported. Mr. Bassett declined to comment on the meeting except to say the Northmen will be playing football and that he has spent more than on the team and has contracted commitments for another million. Informed sources said Mr. Bassett, -in a brief, contradicted' the minister's oft-repeated remarks that government policy concerning foreign teams has been known since 1972. The brief is reported to have said the Northmen would guarantee that equalization payments from Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League to poorer CFL clubs would not go under 1973 level for the neit 10 years. And the sources said the To- ronto team promised to give up to either the government or the CFL that part of its franchise covering the rest of Canada. Mr. Lalonde, who believes that a U.S. team playing in Canada would hurt the CFL, particularly the smaller west- ern clubs, told reporters: "Parliament will have to decide whether it wants to keep Canadian football alive or whether we are to be a bunch of colonials." He had told John Diefenbaker Albert) in the Commons that Maxwell suspended SASKATOON (CP) Bryan Maxwell of the Medicine Hat Tigers has been suspended for two games for receiving a match penalty in a game Saturday in Western Canada Hockey League president Chynoweth announced Tuesday night. Maxwell sat out Sunday's game against Brandon and Tuesday's encounter against the New Westminster Bruins in Medicine Hat. he could use Section 91 of the BNA Act which deals with powers of Parliament and its ability to make laws for the "peace, order and good government of Canada." Mr. Diefenbaker said later "that's the funniest answer I've ever heard" and that ijt showed that Mr. Lalonde was bankrupt of knowledge of the act.'.- At present there is not much known reaction from western MPs to the minister's propos- als. But Toronto-area MPs are reported divided with most, if not all, Liberals supporting him and most, if not all, Progressive Conservatives and New Democrats opposing him. At least some of the western NDP MPs are reported leaning toward Mr. Lalonde's views. The minister" says the government position on foreign teams was made plain by former health minister John Munro in 1972 when there was talk of a NFL team in Montreal. Mr. Bassett says it is up to the people to determine what football they can watch. He says no government policy on foreign teams was known be- fore Mr. Lalonde's recent pro- nouncements in the West. To back that up Mr. Bassett says that Eastern Conference heads who met in 1973 to dis- cuss dropping out of the CFL and joining with a U.S. league did not know of such a policy.

Sanderson blames coach Bert Mac's Annual SPRING SALE TORONTO (CP) The Globe and Mail says Derek Sanderson blames his differences with coach Bep Guidolin for his suspension by Boston .Bruins. Sanderson told the newspaper there was "nothing serious" about the altercations with a team-mate that led to his suspension for the rest of the season and the playoffs by the National Hockey League team. "It happened, before we played the Seals in Oakland Sunday the centre told the newspaper Tuesday in a telephone interview from his Los Angeles hotel room. Sanderson said he was tossing his stick to trainer Don Canney when -accidentally, it lands on Terry O'Reilly's big toe which didn't have a sock on."

We got into it outside the shower stalls, but it's the kind of thing that happens in lots of dressing rooms." Sanderson told the newspaper Guidolin had been, looking for a reason to suspend him all season. "All season, since I came back from the World Hockey Association with million, Guidolin's been trying to humiliate me. Just because I came back from the other league with a million, does that make me a bad PREDICTS CHANGE "My contract's more than in Boston. I bet Guidolin's getting or maybe tops. It's also my belief he won't be the Boston coach next year." Sanderson predicted Boston general manager Harry Sinden would give the coaching job to former Montreal Canadien John Ferguson, who was Sinden's assistant when he coached Team Canada in the Canada- Soviet Union hockey series. Sanderson, who didn't fly back to Boston with the club after Sunday's game, said he decided to leave the Bruins on the bus on the way. to the airport and borrowed money from team-mate Phil Esposito to tide him over. The newspaper says Sanderson indicated he planned to go to Honolulu, where he hoped to get some film work. "The Bruins made a foolish mistake because I could have helped them in the playoffs." he told the Globe and Mail.
