Southern not including Cal was so As a conse quence several new industries have been established in Lethbridge and several more would come if the gov ernment continued to look favorably on this H o w e v e r there are strong indications that Ottawa feels it has done enough for Meanwhile the economic disparities continue in The northeast corner of the for is more depressed than the south west even before the start of the fed eral The federal program is not so far as Alberta is So the provincial government is moving to fill the Legislation has been introduced in Edmonton to set up a provincial program for re gional economic And it will apply to the whole prov ince except the federally designat ed area and except cities of more than Why the figure The purpose is to persuade new in dustry to go elsewhere than Calgary and of because they are already so big that they naturally have a great gravitational pull for any new But they are nearly half a million in popula Again the why is the fi

effort to expand its use across the nation should be employ The recommendation that top bub lie servants have a working knowl edge of French has already been put into with civil servants at all levels of the scale boning up on Western Canadians are still not convinced that French is es sential to them in their workaday and perhaps at this time their convictions are But in years to come the story might be complete ly Already political aspir ants with an eye on Ottawa are be ginning to realize that they will have an added advantage to their credit if they can converse in our two na tional And someone has said that probably we will never have another prime minister who is not completely What the B and B commission did to educate Canadians on the issue it took so many years to is still a

for govern each person would have to protect his own and that of his He would protect his own property from those who would steal or take from and he would have every right to do He would pro tect his right to and work and make a living for himself and family so long as he did not infringe on the same rights which would belong to It is most dif ficult for each individual to do these things entirely on his and so we and together appoint some to pro tect our lives and property while we go peacefully about our Our government thus established has no right to take anothers life on our be or to take anothers prop erty for our self or personal If we allowed the same government could take from us to give to the we cannot take from another for our own We cannot therefore delegate to government the power to do that for us which we cannot do for The proper role of government is therefore to protect our lives and prop not to take from Mitchell External Affairs has just sign ed an agreement to loan
