Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta May 13, 1970 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD 11 National Policies For Prairies Senate Should Be Elected Body Regional 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 the One Prairie Province Enquiry, Mr. Hedlin told 225 delegates and ob- servers that a unified province "would not result in the crea- tion of an entity that has the economic and political clout to stand toe to toe, within Confed- eration, with the major prov- FAIRFIELD APPLIANCE SERVICES LTD.

Mr. Hedlin called for the Prairie Province Economic Council to propose national pol- icy "which it would have as- sessed in termSj of its Prairie implications." Citing current policies 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 father than spending their ener- gies on tortured dialogue with respect to a three-province union." He also asked for the estab- lishment 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 for private individuals or groups who required informa- tion on the west.

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 Saskatchewan, Saska- toon, contended that most bene- fits of union could be achieved more 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 that if prairie citi- zens want union, they will get it. He raised a series of objec- tions to a merger of Alberta, Saskatchewan 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 ticularly in northern and the West's voice in Ottawa could become weaker, not stronger. Dr. Ward described unifica- Hen of the three provinces as being "by almost any measur- able slar.dard an incomparably larger union than was confed- eration itself." "I am suggesting that the en- terprise would require a colos- sal amount of political and ad- ministrative energy, at a time when the same skills might bp ANNIVERSARY SALE CONTINUES.....

Dr. Ward said one common given for prairie union is Jiat it would add muscle to the West's parliamentary represen tatton. He doubted it. First, there was no reason t assume the westerners wouli vote en bloc. Second, if the} vere in the opposition, the} might not be able to do the wes much gocd. Third, he said, action as bloc might spark formation o other blocs; Ontario and Quebec lave 162 seats between then and the prairies only 45. Am the 45 "would be a lot less se cure than they are row." The reason, he said, is the rules governing distribution o seats. After the 1971 census, the fi of 45 would probably dro] :o 43. But under union the num 3er 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 Mi chell Sharp told the Common that the federal government ha no studies under way for th formation of a single prairi province, nor does it have an plan to bring about such a re orgination. Progressive Conservativ house leader Gerald Baldw: noted that Services and Supp' Minister James Richardson ha suggested in a speech that th three prairie provinces be un ited into a single province to b known as "Canada West." Mr. Richardsoi, had also sat gested to reporters that the On Prairie Province might be ei tended eastward to take in tl western section of Ontario i to and including Uie head of tl lakes region. Mr. Baldwin asked if the to eral government would sugge that British Columbia be r named "Canada Pacific." "The minister of services ai supply made it quite clear in h speech he was expressing a pe sonal opinion and was not spea ing on behalf of his gover. said Mr. Sharp. Mr. Baldwin asked if the Wi nipeg member of the cabin (Mr. Richardson) was expres ing government policy when 1 suggested it might be useful house procedures were changed to permit more freedom to 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 South) asked if the government, has undertaken any steps to unite the three prairie prov- inces. He asked if there is any intention on the part 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 does not have any such study under way nor has it la- ken any decisions on the ques- tion.
