Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LEIHBRIDGE HERAU March 1971 Maurice Western Both are to blame With all of the important issues confronting this it is dis

credit to either As understood by the this seems to be the situation Loug heed was naturally looking for mat ters that might embarrass the gov and made public a peti tion from an elderly northern resident claiming certain damages as a re sult of the Bennett Actually Lougheed had been misled by the and to refute Lougheeds disclosed certain confidential state ments about the petition dis

Canadians in the professions and in industry earn conspicuously lower incomes than do their Eng lish It would be justifi able cause for resentment if it were There is a recently published study that says it is not The study is one done by Donald Arm dean of the graduate school of business at McGill and it was done for the B and B It was discovered by Arm strong that educational standards have more to do with income than does ethnic The truth seems to be that the French Canadian profes sional has an income running about a year higher than that of the English Canadian in Alleged discrimination against French speaking persons seems to founder on the much more signifi cant factor of the amount and kind of education received by When one reflects on the long neglect of education

that guards against environmental pollution While generating electricity inexpen The research has been so promising that the federal gov ernments environmental protection agency is now helping to underwrite further The heart of the new converter is a combustion chamber in which the refuse is It has a bed of sand which is fluidized by a stream of air passing through The sand is heated to very

tho piuo if is moie than monied men can afiord Only taxpayers apt to be displeased governments new strength through joy program announced by the prime minister and Pel letier should please everyone except disgruntled taxpayers answering their annual sum mons from National It had been obvious for months that the struggling with one unemploy ment will be confront ed with another as the univer sities and colleges empty this Much in the new pro gram will be generally accepted as In the past two how the government had drift ed into the acceptance of a philosophy which is new and given the limitations of the public This emerges at several points in Trudeaus latest Thus The advantages of summer employment are so in terms of selfsup of broadening of of acquisition of new skills and that every effort to assist on the part of govern ments and business is There is equal justification for assistance to students who do not seek work but who are nevertheless desirous of occu pying their summer vacations in an otherwise rewarding and worthwhile Equal justification Again I should like now to turn to the other portion of the federal government program that part which assists stu dents in nonemployment activi Some effort should be made by both government and nongovernmental organizations to assist those students not wishing to work or not able to work to gain from their sum mer be these in the form of study or volun tary occupations No one denies the value of This is not new discov Herodotus lauded it a point made last year in one of Pelletiers Even in the depression many stu dents made their way to Eur ope often travelling as nurse maids on cattle But gov ernment had not at that time become the great patron of tra vellers not wishing to What is the context of the new programs The estimate is that more than univer sity and high school studsnts will be released from studies in tte coming This ia an increase of over Large numbers of them will be seeking summer jobs in order that they will have the means to continue their courses In the this is going to mean great pressure on the funds available to It had been decidsd that can be spared for youth This is a large sum rather more than the esti mated cost of railway subsidies or of Canada Manpower Ser Even so there is a gen eral expectation that many stu dents will have difficulty in finding Of the million available for Pelletiers four pro 6 million will be deducted for purposes which will not generate On the equal justification is being set aside for group travel at home and also Another will go for transient amenities and for lan guage Because theyre discussing the church ceremony and trouseau in the Conference guestlist and reception in the East Room This appears to mean that education through for those fortunate enough to qual will be at the expense of formal But the gov ernment in recent years had placed overwhelming emphasis on formal It has en couraged everyone to regard university practically as a right it has poured out hun dreds of millions in programs of post secondary education which at times have broken through budgetary It has imposed such demands on universities that serious ques tions have lately been posed as to he capacity of the coun try to sustain expansion at rent Should government be Hie universal provider When it is thus limited should it accept the rcspoasibitity of catering to student tourist needs Many of those who do not wish to work are probably in fortunate having some assurance that funds will be forthcoming to see them through the next university Why then should they en joy subsidized travel at the tax payers expense The now and has attacks of While it intends to provide as many jobs as possible within the civil it seeks to avoid make work activities which contribute little to the national wellbeing either now or in the This is sensi But it discards caution when it gets into the field of organized the benefits of which are at best marginal when compared to those which the government itself has seen in higher What is to happen if the econ omy has so revived by next year that jobs are plentiful and the pressure on government has lightened Since there Is equal justification for spending on those who do not seek will Pelletier be able to claim another million practically all of which could then be dedicated to carefree
