Ky JOAX BOWMAN Herald Slolf Writer One of (he roughest, lough- est meetings scheduled by the Canadian Radio Television Commission since it was es- tablished Iwo years ago is ex- peeled in Ottawa April H. That's the day public hear- ings open on the CltTC's pro- posals for1 increased Canadian content on television and AM radio. The commission has pro- posed the CDC beef up its Ca nadian shows, by next fall, to comprise 60 per cent of pro- gramming. A flat 60 per cent would be slapped on prime time, p.m., Ihus dis- counting Ihe shunting of Cana dian shows into daytime view- ing hours. The CTV, if (he proposals were made binding, will be ex- pected to follow the CDC's by the fall cf 1971. For AM radio, the CRTC has suggested 30 per cent of all mu- siu be Canadian written, pro- duced performed. The CHTC has reputedly ad' milled public opinion has been running against Ihc proposals. The Canadian Association ol Broadcasters, to a recenl TV program, indicated il is op posed. And the CBC network and even more the CTV, arc wondering where all that Ca nadian talent is going lo sprou from. Lethbridge broadcasters, a least in radio, agree Ihe principle of the build up Canadian talent be- fore it is completely over whelmed by the Americans- and they're fairly optimist! about attaining the 30 per cen level. Brown, station man agcr of CHEC radio, said Ih station currently plays up to 1 pel' cent Canadian music Tiie 30 per cent "is prctl heavy, but T don't think we' have anv trouble reariiin' il.: Conciliation Adjourned In Gty Workers Dispute Conciliation hearings bclwcdifi'injje benefits between union he cily and city hall office workers have adjourned with no dale set for further hcar- ngs. In other city hall union nego- iations, J. R. Hullon of the ward of industrial relations has >cen appointed mediator in a contract dispute between the city and its outside workers. Local 70, Canadian Union of Employees, representing the outside and inside workeils, recently rejected a conciliator's mvard to the out- side workers and applied for lie mediator. Mr. Hulton is to try lo get the cily and union problem resolved Wednesday. Major reason for rejection of the award was the disparity in City Man Injured A Lethbridge man, Johnny T. Strzeszkowski, of P a r k s 1 d e House was taken to St, Mi- chael's General Hospital short- ly after 2 a.m. today when the car he was driving collided with a power pole at Mayor Ma- grath Drive and Scenic Drive. Mr. Strzeszkowski was treated for minor injuries and released from hospital. Damage in the accident was estimated al ingirg on Ihe public domain he air Bob Lang, program man- ger of CJOC, said the "30 per ent level is fine, but I'm not ure if the recording industry as enough material thai is up o standard. "It might have been better if he CRTC had increased Ihe uota by 10 per cent a year, up o a maximum of 30." He suggested a n increase i Canadian country and and pop music ceords would make the going asier for Ihe pop stations than or those depending on classi- al and semi-classical works. "But we need far more rec- eding studios Ihan we have now." One distinctive problem for ring to the CRTC's pronounce- lent. "There isn't enough talent on a long-term basis to uphold the quota. The public won't accept Canadian programs for a long adio will be labelling of rec- ords, since stations must know he Canadian content of a rec- ord for application lo quota. Mr. Lang said a huge record catalogue might have to be compiled. Mr. Broivn sug- jested every record would lave to be thoroughly labelled, as to its Canadian writer, com- wser, artist or production ccn- re. Mr. Lang said CJOC plays about 10 cent Canadian content rosv. "T h e real prob- lem will be one of quality." TKI.EVISIOX OUTLOOK" For Lclhbridge television managers, the fulure looks murkier.
