20 THE lETHBRIDGC HERALD Thursday, May 7, 1970 Indian Lawyer Won't Push Ottawa's White Paper Policy a. CALGARY (CP) Lawyer William WutUmee of Calgary announced Wednesday that he "will no longer push Hie white paper" on Indian affairs. A leading proponent of the Jederal government's position for four months. Mr. WutUmee said he still feels it is a sound policy but that Indians "aren't readv" for it. Ex-MP Cleared Of Spy Charges LONDON (AP) A former member of Parliament was cleared Wednesday of eight charges of passing secret infor- mation to Communist agents. Frail, white-haired Will Owen, 69, had pleaded not guilty. The crown charged he was paid by Czechoslovak intellig- ence agents in tile last nine years for information he gained as a member of the defence es- timates committee of the House of Commons. Owen, who also ran' a travel agency specializing in trips to Eastern Europe, admitted he received money from Czechoslo- vak diplomats. But he denied he ever passed them any docu- ments or classified information. POPULATION FIGURE The population of the United States Virgin Islands is in ex- cess of 60.000. "I have taken this new stand to maintain peace and unity among the Indian people and toward white people. "A policy of confrontation generated by the white paper will only mean the develop- ment of racism and possible said Mr. Wuttunee, a Cree Indian. Indians would some day live under the conditions prescribed by the white paper. There was already a natural move by In- dians to move away fiom the reserve system. LACK SUPPOItT But the government could not implement the unpopular docu- ment now because of lack of support, not only from Indian people, but from personnel of the department of Indian af- fairs "who, quite naturally do not want to do themselves out of their jobs." The white paper called for the abolition of the department within five years. Mr'. Wuttunee announced his decision five days after band chiefs and councillors from 10 Indian reserves in the Battle- fords region of northwestern Saskatchewan voted to bar him from his home reserve in Sask- atchewan. "I have never wished harm to Indian people. I did not thoroughly understand their fears. This is understandable because I haven't lived on a reserve for 25 years. "The Indian people want to make their own decisions as to their own destiny and the fed- eral and provincial govern- ments must help them attain this end." NATIVE OPPOSITION Mr. Wuttunee said he be- lieves native opposition to the federal policy is so intense that attempts to promote it could arouse violence. "This is demonstrated by the fact that my own people and my own relatives were so stir- red up by my support of the white paper that they banned me from my reserve wilh im- plications of violence. "I do not believe in confront- ation or violence. I believe we can work on a parallel pro- gram." Although he would no longer push the white paper, Mr. Wut- tunee said he will not support the Indian Association of Al- berta in submitting a counter- policy red paper. Indian organizations in all provinces had to realize they could not exoect full support nor demand total resistance to federal policy. He said he will advise the federal government that the white paper can not be imple- mented at this time and that it "would be disastrous to con- tinue to try to put it into ef- fect." Mr. Wuttunee said the Cana- dian Native Council which he founded last month will con- tinue to exist as a forum for Indians and he now will work to "regenerate Indian spiritual values such as respect for fam- ily."

Banf BANFF (CP) -The Banff Advisory Council has decided to ask the provincial government to send one or more social workers to the Banff area this summer to provide counselling and welfare services to needy young transients. Councillor Rev. Peter Mil-len said in an interview Wants I that the council will aks for assistance in a burgeoning transient problem which sees more than young Canadians and Americans in their late teens and early 20s visit Banff National Park every summer. Mr. Milieu said the only agency now handling young transients in Canada's oldest Wo] al park is the RCMP. In the last few years the Banff HCMP detachment had been approached by up to 150 young people a week seeking assistance. Some were in dire need but many of the others did not ask for financial or emotional help simply because they considered the police uniform a barrier to communication. Rev. Millen said that some transients in need of help, do not seek it while others in comparatively better shape try to solicit as much as they from Banff residents in the way of free services such as food and shelter. Full-lime professional social workers could easily screen oul the bums from the youngsters who really required assistance. DENTURE 324 5th SI. S. Ph. 338-7684 Above Capitol EDDY DIETRICH. C.D.M.
