Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta J System ready for June vote Election call preparations started OTTAWA (CP) - First wave in the tide of paper needed to run a national election will start moving from Ottawa next week and Jean-Marc Hamel, chief electoral officer, says "the system can be cranked up for a June vote if necessary. Mr. Hamel, who says he has received some inquiries from the prime minister's office about the earliest feasible date an election can be held, says the system can be ready to go by June 4-first Monday in th? month. But, since it takes a bit more than 60 uuys to go through the preliminaries from election call to voting day, a decision for a June 4 election would have to come virtually this week, Mr. Hamel said in an interview Wednesday. He declines any predictions on when the next voting day might come. But he does advise the government on the problems that certain dates might cause. For example, since elections must be on a Monday unless that day is a holiday, he points out that June 25 would put the election operation into the same bind that it faced for the vote last Oct. 30-conflict with provincial enumeration, VOTE IN QUEBEC For a June 25 vote, federal enumerators in Quebec would be running just ahead or. just behind the staff doing the same thing for the province. The public tends to have high feelings about over-enumeration, Mr. Hamel says, and the result sometimes is that whichever Price, wage controls urged VANCOUVER (CP) ~ A strong suggestion that the time has come for Canada to introduce price and wage controls was voiced today by J. V. Clyne, chairman of MacMillan Bloedel Limited. "There is some division of opinion regarding the wisdom of current Canadian policy to refrain from the imposition of controls," Mr. Clyne said in his 1972 annual report. "But it is difficult to see how the persistent leap-frogging of cost and price increases can be stopped without the introduction of effective legislation," he added. The recovery of the North American and European economies during the past two years had been "marred by the inability to control adequately the problem of inflation." MAY BE TOO LATE He said the apparent relaxation of price and wage controls in tlie United States may give rise to renewed inflation and questioned whether recent steps taken by the United Kingdom had come early enough or contained the necessary sanctions to put that country's economy into balance. Mr. Clyne said the 1973 out- look for MacMillan Bloedel, Canada's largest forest enterprise, is "generally good but opportunities afforded for better markets cannot be realized unless production is maintained at high levels and the rate of increase in labor, tax and other costs abates." Reviewing 1972 financial re-suits, Mr. Clyne said a substan. tial increase in profit "from the low level of 1971 and the still lower level of 1970 reflects the general recovery in demand for the company's products in world markets." The company achieved a record of sales and other income. enumerator reaches the household second "gets the door slammed in his face." For the vote last Oct. 30, federal enumerators were working at the same time as provincial crews were out in Ontario and British Columbia. Back-to-back enumeration, getting the voters names on the list, "accounted for aibout 90 per cent of our troubles in Ontario and B.C.," Mr. Hamel said. If there is no call for a June elecV'on, it is generally considered that the summer will be elention-free. July and August, when most Canadians take vacations, make it impossible for enumerators to do a proper job. But the fall months are considered prime election time. One problem that has arisen in the context of a new election following rather close on the heels of last Oct. 30 is a shortage of returning officers. Mr. Hamel is 15 short right now and expects if an election call comes soon that he could get perhaps another 12 resignations. Part of this is normal attrition, people getting old and deciding to retire. But another factor is that some returning officers, while willing to take time off from their business for an election every four years or so, say they can't spare the time when elections come too close together. Cans break recycling barrier TORONTO (CP) - Five big metal companies, in full-page newspaper advertisements today, proclaimed that "Cans break recycling barrier." "Cans can now be recycled," said the ads, sponsored by Al-can, American Can, Continental Can, Dominion Foundries and Steel Co. Ltd. and Steel Company of Canada Ltd. "Cans can now be magnetically separated from solid waste and re-used as new metal. . . . The amount of solid waste that has to be burned or buried is cut down. Metal * . . is conserved. "Because we will buy back the cans and other scrap metal from municipal waste for reuse, the can becomes an income-producing item and reduces the financial burden for the taxpayer. "The city of Hamilton will soon be the first to benefit from the breakthrough. Other cities will follow."
