Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 U1HBR1DGEHERAID-Wednesday, Mnrth 14, 1973 Population growtli contentious topic TORONTO (CP) Host Ca- nadian polilicians understanda- bly are reluctant to oppose motherhood. It's a topic with too many contentious implications, among them economic and religious. But many individuals and groups are actively concerned about Canada's rate of popula- tion growth. Dr. Marian Powell is one. She heads a new population unit at the School of Hygiene, Univer- sity of Toronto. We've got problems right row with 22 million she said. 'We've got to adjust and come to terms with population and environment." Although the Canadian North appears an obvious area for population spread, she said il can support little agriculture and the climate is virtualy in- tolerable. When the North's resources eventually are in production i will be comparable to oil finds In the Sahara Desert with rela lively few workers at the source of supply. "We need to change the em- phasis on said Dr. Powell. I'm worried about all these super-cilies and people rushing to move into them. "We must take into account the social and environmental cos Is of this shift lo the really weigh the so-called bene- its of urban living.' SEEKS BALANCE One group, Zero Population Growth, believes Canada now should begin to reduce its growth, aiming at a stable pop- ulation of 30 million by 20J4 AD. Tills would be achieved if each woman had an average of 2.1 children, said the group, thereby maintaining a.balance between births and deaths. Dr. Powel said more studies are needed on fertility rates and lo define the absolute limits of population. And all Canadian women should have access to birth control information, to sterilization and abortion serv- ices. displays to be supervised SEE THE AMAZING 4-WAY VORWERK The cleaner that will revolutionize house cleaning FAIRFIELD APPLIANCE SERVICES LTD. 1244 3rd AVE. 3.
