Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 - TH8 IETH6RIDGE HERALD - Tuesday, March 23, 1971 Use of war act supported by Sask. government By THE CANADIAN PRESS | The federal government's use of the War Measures Act last October was supported Friday by the Saskatchewan government while criticism of the act was turned aside in the Quebec national assembly. In Saskatchewan, the ruling Liberals passed a resolution commending the federal Liberal government for its action in controlling the Front de Liberation du Quebec. The resolution supporting the use of the War Measures Act and subsequent imposition of the Public Order (Temporary Measures) Act, 1970 was supported by 27 Liberals and opposed by 22 New Democrats in the 59-member legislature. Ten members were absent. In Quebec the Parti Quebecois presented a motion censuring Liberal Premier Robert Bouras-sa's government for requesting the War Act "when there was no insurrection, either real or apprehended." The Opposition Union Nation-ale and Creditistes joined the Liberals in a 67 to 5 vote againrt accepting the motion for debate. REPEATS CHARGES In the B.C. legislature Resources Minister Ray Williston repeated charges he made last year that a CBC television program on the effects of the dam were "a direct effort to paint the poorest picture possible." He said there were no "Tall Grass" Indians and no reservation at Finlay Forks despite the program's information to the contrary. The filmed Indians were "a general group of drifters," he said. The annual report of the Nova Scotia medical care plan showed doctors had a net average income of $44,670 for the year ended March 31, 1970, compared to $33,000 the previous year when there was no government plan. Total, cost to the government for 1969-70 was $28.7 million, about $3.5 million above the es timated cost. The, New Brunswick legislature gave first reading to a bill that would lower the voting age to 18 in all provincial elections Similar legislation for municipal elections was introduced earlier in the week. The Manitoba legislature's committee on municipal affairs approved in principle National Building Code provisions as minimum standards of construction in the province. $2 million set aside to hire Francophones OTTAWA (CP) - About $2 million has been set aside to hire 276 Francophone university graduates for the public service, Treasury Board President C. M. Drury announced in the Commons Monday. Mr. Drury said the graduates will be employed in 10 departments in "positions where French is the language of work." The $2 million to finance the special program comes not out of department budgets but out of the government contingency funds. The announcement drew questions from Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield and New Democrat Laeder T. C. Douglas. Rene Matte (Creditiste- Champlain) hailed it as 1 timid first step" towards equality in the public service for those whose first language is French. Mr. Stanfield said he doesn't oppose the principle of equality but he questioned "the new and New medication for Parkinson's curious principle" by which hiring was done on the basis of the. language of work. CAUSED CONTROVERSY First reports of the special program had caused a storm when released some months ago. The "confusion and secrecy" was a perfect example of how not to do things. Furthermore, the timing was unfortunate. Unemployment was heavy, and the government had been cutting back the public service. Had this policy changed? There would be suspicion of the program, Mr. Stanfield said. The government should alleviate it by making more details known. Mr. Douglas asked Mr. Drury to state whether or not the merit principle still dominates hiring, Mr. Drury has said in January that 1,250 graduates would be Wired. Why were the 276 Francophones being treated differently? Was their French mother tongue the only basis for their hiring? Mr. Drury said in his statement the special program is part of the government's policy of "making the public service progressively more representative of the two major linguistic communities of Canada." Equality of opportunity was a basic goal. PROPOSALS SUBMITTED Ten departments had submitted proposals to extend programs "in areas of the public service where French is normally used." The departments were asked last fall by the public service commission to advise whether they could use more Francophone personnel if the cost didn't come out of their budgets. Mr. Drury said 128 of the 276 graduates will be employed as administrative trainees while the rest will hold junior positions in the social, biophysical and applied sciences fields. Record snowfall in U.S. area BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -The largest winter accumulation of snow in the record-keeping history of the national weather service here was recorded during the weekend. A spokesman said the 84-year-old record'of 132 inches was shattered Sunday by two-tenths of an inch as a result of a storm that dumped upwards of 6-12 inches of new snow on the state. Records dating back to 1885 show the previous record was during the winter of 1886-87. PHILADELPHIA (AP) - By the end of March, physicians will have access to another brand of L-Dopa, the best known medication for Parkinson's disease. Smith Kline and French laboratories, a Philadelphia pharmaceutical firm, said here it has received approval from the Commonwealth fund to aid economic, social program LONDON (CP) - A Commonwealth fund for technical co-operation, which will seek to promote economic and social development among member states, is to be established April 1, it was announced Monday. Farmers asked to withhold school taxes CHILLIWACK, B.C. (CP) -British Columbia farmers are being asked whether they would withhold school taxes in an effort to pressure the provincial government into reducing land taxes for farmers. Richard Stocks, general manager of the B.C. Federation of Agriculture, told the annual meeting of the Fraser Valley Milk Producers Association that the Federation has asked the government for more than 20 years to reduce the land tax burden. Mr. Stocks said B.C. farmers now are being asked if they will hold back the school tax portion of their property assessment if legislation to create open spaces and preserve farm land is not passed during the current session of the legislature. "The federation is not a militant organization, but after 20 years of inaction, the patience of any group becomes severely stretched," he said. Canada-is contributing 40 per cent of the initial sum of �250,000 ($625,000) in the multilateral fund, with the over-all arrangement billed by the Commonwealth secretariat as a "move towards partnership and a bluring of the distinction between donors and recipients." A Commonwealth program for technical co-operation has been in operation for three years, financed largely on a bilateral basis by developed members of the international organization. "The new financial arrangements will make it easier in administrative terms to tap the pool of expertise available in the developing countries for the benefit of other developing countries," the secretariat said. Contributions to the new fund will be on a voluntary basis. It will make the program "truly multilateral, with contributions from both developed and developing members," the secretariat said. The announcement of the fund's establishment was made by Canadian-born Arnold Smith Commonwealth secretary-general.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market Levopa which it says has proven effective in suppressing the symptoms of 74 per cent of patients suffering from Parkinsonism in any degree. L-Dopa has been available to practitioners for more than a year, since the FDA authorized its use in treating Parkinson's disease.
