Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta National Policies For Prairies Senate Should Be Elected Body Hegional aspirations might be better1 served by converting the Senate to an elected body rep- resenting five major regions in Canada, a Toronto agricultural economics consultant said Tuesday. Ralph Hedlin, president of Hedlin, Menzies and Associates Ltd., suggested 10 members to .the new Senate be elected from each of: a Pacific region, in- cluding the Yukon; the Prairie region, including the Northwest Territories; Ontario; Quebec, and the Atlantic Provinces. He said that while the House of Commons should continue to be based on representation by population, an elected Senate, to deal exclusively with econ- omics issues would allow for higher priority on regional de velopment. Speaking at Ihe One Prairie Province Enquiry, Mr. Hedlin told 225 delegates and oh servers that a unified province "would not result in the crea- tion of an entity (hat has the economic and political clout to stand toe lo toe, within Confed- eration, with (lie major prov- FAIRFIELD APPLIANCE SERVICES LTD.

Mr. Hedlin called for tli P j- a i r e Province Economii Council to pfopose national pol icy "which it would have as sessed in of its Prairii implications." Citing current poh'cies on tariffs, agriculture and foreign capital, he suggested the Prai ries should offer its own na tional plans to Ottawa. The Prairie Provinces should focus their attention on the design of national policy rather than spending their ener- gies on tortured dialogue v respect to a three-province union." He also asked for the estab- ishment of a Prairie Policy [foundation, which would pro- duce a major library of policy papers dealing with western needs. The research material would then be available for the de- signing of national policies, and o r private individuals groups who required informa- ion on the west. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC 324 Sib SI. S. Ph. 328-7684 Above Capital Furniture EDDY DIETRICH, C.D.M. -------------Wcilneiday, May 13, 1970 THE UTHBRIDGE HERAtD Objections Raised By Norman Ward A prairie political scientist suggested Tuesday that prairie union would be more both monetary and political terms than prairie co-opera- tion. Dr. Norman Ward of the Uni- versity of Saskalohewan, Saska- toon, contended that most bene- fits of union could be achieved mare easily through such exist- ing devices as the prairie eco- nomic council. he told the One Prai- rie Province Conference, "the prairies' political record is such as to indicate thai if prairie citi- zens want union, they will gel it. He raised a series of objec- tions to a merger of Alberta, Saskatche wan and Manitoba, saying that for a start the sheer magnitude of the task would be almost overwhelming. After that, he said, govern- ment would become more re- mote from local icularjy in northern and the West's voice in Ottawa could become weaker, not stronger. Dr. Ward described unih'ca- ion of the three provinces as jeing "by almost any measur- able standard an incomparably arger union than was confed- raticn itself." "I am suggesting that the en- would require a colos- al amount of political and ad- ministrative energy, at a lime rhen the same skills might bp ANNIVERSARY SALE CONTINUES (WHILE QUAHTiriES LAST) Recheck Your Big 12 Page Flier (A) SHIFT DRESSES Included are sleeveless, short and lonf sleeved styles fobrtes include cot- tons, poplins, amol knits and many more.

"Further, unless a drastic change occurs in the patterns of population growth on the prai- ries, a single province seats in the assembly would in- evitably .gravitate from east to West, away from Ssskatchewan and Manitoba in that order, and toward Alberta. "I think that unification of the prairie provinces would for a long time impose severe strains OB representative demo- cracy on the plains, wilh an ac- companying loss cf attention to local particularities." SPECIAL PROBLEMS Dr. Ward suggested northern regions would face special prob- lems. They had enough difficul- ty now. "How much better off will they be if the government is made that much larger ar.d more remote, and preoccupied Tor years with fitting together the political and administrative jigsaw puzzles that unification will make of the South." In addition said Dr. Ward, the single province would have to consolidate direct and indirect provincial debts cf about and could possibly lose some cf the "have cot" aid Ottawa now gives Saskatch- ewan and Manitoba. Therefore, he said, either gov- ernment services would have to be reduced or tlie people Al- berta, the province with the least per capita debt, would be given a large new burden. Dr. Ward said one common reason given for prairie union is that it would add muscle to the West's parliamentary represen- tation. He doubled it. First, there was no reason to assume the westerners would vote en bloc. Second, if they were in the opposition, they might not be able to do the west much good. Third, he said, action as a bloc might spark formation of other blocs; Ontario and Quebec have 162 seats between them and the prairies only 45. And the 45 "would be a lot less se- cure than they are now." The reason, he said, is the rules governing distribution of seats. After Ihe 1971 census, the fi- gure of 45 would probably drop to 43. But under union the num- ber could be reduced to even 39. By 1981, it could be only 33. No Plan Reports Sharp By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau Acting Prime Minister "Mit- chell Sharp told the Commons that the federal government has no studies under way for the formation of a single prairie province, nor does it have any plan to bring about such a re- orgination. Progressive Conservat i v e house leader Gerald Baldwin noted that Services and Supply Minister James Richardson had suggested in a speech that the three prairie provinces be un- ited into a single province to be known as "Canada West." Mr. Hichardsoi, had also sug- gested to reporters that the One Prairie Province might bo ex- tended eastward to take in the western section of Ontario up to and including tlie head of the lakes region. Mr. Baldwin asked if the fed- eral government would suggest that British Columbia be re- named "Canada Pacific." "Tlie minister of services and supply made it quite clear in his speech he was expressing a per- sonal opinion and was not speak- ing on behalf of his govern- said Mr. Sharp. Mr. Baldwin asked if the Win- nipeg member of the cabinet (Mr. Richardson) was express- ing government policy when he suggested it might be usclul if house procedures were changed to permit more freedom lo MP's to express regional viewpoints. "Dees the government think it could pressure its backbenchers to s h o w some independence once in a asked Mr. Baldwin. David Lewis (NDP York i South) asked if the government has undertaken any steps to unite tlie three prairie prov- inces. He asked if there is any intention on Ihe parl of the gov- ernment to make any such sug- gestion or to propose such a question be studied by the fed- eral provincial constitutional meetings. Mr. Sharp said the govern- ment docs not have any such study under way nor has it ta- ken any decisions on the ques- tion.
