Separation by Quebec could be the boost the rest of Canada needs to do as it wants, he said, noting growing concern about economic domination from the United States. The current system concentrates power in a central body with the result that each region of the country la prevented from determining its own priorities, he said. Ideally members of a federal state are equal but this has changed, particularly in the 20th century. "... As long as they (federations) last, there is an increment towards central pow- er. All goes towards a unitary seat of iMtitutions." This could continue to aa extreme degree and still be tolerated in areas where the people had similar cultural and linguistic backgrounds but In a multicultural or Ucuttural society such an arraogement would be artificial. Federalism is not an elemental truth, he said, and it is "not the end of the world for a population, and after 100 years seems like a good time, to question whether it is working." "If it lasts another few years too many, Quebec society might end up blowing up, and you with ft, but that would not be a good end to the federation." Quebec doss not want out because it is against the rest of Canada or because it wants re-e| tribution, he said, "We want out for ourselves." The federal state was ideal for Quebec when first instituted. "We were a rural' society who could care less about what the English were /doing in town. "We could have survived that way forever, if we bad not changed." But Quebec has become a normal adult' society which wants to make its own decisions, not have them made by anyone else, he said. Quebec and the rest of Canada night be better off as "good neighbors rather than bitchy partners.'' The problem was not Just the structure but that Quebec could not make work good answers which H has for its problems because it did not have control over the structure. It was a question of the people affected by the decision not being able to make the choice.

Clark: 'Big step backwards' to be avoided EDMONTON (CP) - The government has no desire to interfere with teacher-contract negotiations in southern Alberta, Education Minister Clark told the legislature Friday. He told opposition leader Peter Lougheed, who noted that the teachers have threatened to go on strike, not to place "undue emphasis on statements made during the bargaining process." Mr. Clark said government interference would be a "big step backwards" in attempts to give school boards local autonomy. Dave Russell (PC-Calgary Victoria Park) Friday got credit for the shortest speech of the session as the Alberta legislature sped through clause-by-clause study of two bills that will set up new departments. "This is a weird conglomerate," was all Mr. Russell had to say when an act to establish a new department of culture, youth and recreation was in- troduced for detailed study. "The honorable member has the honor of the shortest speech of the session," said Anti-noise vehicle law introduced VICTORIA (CP) - Legislation was introduced in the British Columbia legislature Friday which would set maximum levels for motor vehicles.
