Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE LETH5RIDGE HERALD March 1971 Bruce Hutchison Wilderness Areas Act Concessions appear to have been made to both sides in the debate over designating wilderness The recently introduced again after a years shows that considera tion has indeed been given to the views presented at public Conservationists appear to have won their point that designated wil derness areas should be kept strictly free from economic In order to preserve these areas in their natural human beings will be permitted in them only as Even fishing will be prohibited in the Some protection against yielding to pressures from economic interests in the future is provided in the require ment that any redesignation of an area must have the approval of the In the original bill the cabinet was to have had this Strong objections w ere voiced to this and seem to have been It may not appear to be much of a gain since it will still be possible to take back what is being But the fact is that any act is subject to revocation and it is obviously some improvement to require public dis cussion before that in effect should Where economic interests won over the conservationists is in curtailing the amount of territory to be set aside as wilderness Instead of vast sweeps along the eastern slopes of the the areas will be of a maximum size of 144 square One of the three existing wilderness areas White Goat is 489 square It is possible that this area will be redesignated into two or more areas but it is also possible that a present gain will turn into a So many people have taken a keen interest in the matter of designated wilderness areas that there is still very likely to be much even heat ed debate before the bill becomes Please include

over the next few beginning in Ottawa tlus month and Manitoba in A zip code system has been in ef fect in Britain and the United States for a number of However offi cials state the Canadian system will be superior to both of these in that its combination of six letters and figures allows machines to sort mail for in dividual apartment houses and homes in a single city Although citizens will soon receive their code the system wont go into effect until machinery to han dle it is and that wont be until the idea behind allot ing code numbers well ahead of the operating date is to allow people to get used to yet one more What with having to remember our street car social security hospital insurance and now zip it prob ably wont be long before every home will have to have some sort of
