A. N.

"If not, they will be forcing us to take strike action. We have no alternative. At a meet- ing Tuesday night, 27S union members voted unanimously to support strike action if no settlement is reached." Mr. Milroy said the union has conceded some to the city and now it is up to them to give a little.

CANADA'S FINEST COLD FUR STORAGE Call 327-4348 for Rapid Pick-up CANADIAN FURRIERS Paramount Theatre Building POLITICAL TALK, NO DOUBT It might have been in a lighter vein the moment this picture was taken but doubtless the conversation had some political overtones, as One Prairie Province'Enquiry visitors talked during a recess Tuesday. Left to right, Jean Marchand, federal minister of regional economic expansion, Dennis O'Connell, .'i ,v-." i of the Economic Development Commission in Lethbridge, William Beckel, acting-presiderj of fhe Univer- sity of Lethbridge and Lethbridge Mayor Andy Anderson. The enquiry featuring key speakers from across Canada and some from the United States began Sunday and ends today. The speakers expressed views for and against possible union of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Quebec-Type Leaders Said Vital To One Prairie Province Plan The West will need leader- ship such as that which emerg- ed in Quebec to promote the at- itudes and practices necessary :o effect a union of the three Prairie provinces, Dr. Alan M. Thomas said here. Dr. Thomas, executive assis- tant to Robert Stanbury, federal minister in charge of citizen- ship, told the One Prairie Prpv- nce Enquiry that to effect union here must be a belief that hat change is necessary and :hat the specific change will be letter. To sow such an idea takes eadership a western Rene courage and le said. Mr. Levesque led Ms separa- ist Parti Quebecois in gaining 4 per cent of the popular vote n the Quebec provincial elec- ion earlier this month. Dr. Thomas said the second itep is the formation of groups 0 develop the skills and tech- niques required to attain such a gaol. He said while "impressed" nth the idea of union, "I do ot believe it can be imposed" n the people of the Prairies. "What.I have not yet discern- ed is a positive reason, one that an ignite the popular engines f political change." Speaking on education, leani- ng and state building, Dr. 1 h o m a s said in order to chieve what the conference roposes, people must learn and "teachers must be pur- uaded of the values of the ause." He said loyalty now is the iain charcteristic of emerging lovements for self-determina- ion. "Radio by intensifying a sense T identity based upon a spoken anugage was the chief spark F regeneration for French-Can- da centred on Quebec." Dr. Thomas said broadcasting emains for Canada, "as for the entire world, the chief stormy petrel of the flowering of separ atist movements." However, the leaders of mos of.the new McLuhanesque tri bal community movements to- ward self-determination usually are products of the funadmental ly print-oriented system of edu cation. "The one outburst of the logi cal consistent print-orientation appears to be found in these sen sible, bureaucratically-design ed agglomerates like the West Indies Federation, the East African Federation anr Malaysia, all of which have fail he said. "Canada, as an earlier exam pie, seems to teeter" on the abyss of a .comparable failure.' He said the emergence of a popular movement for union of the Prairies, if one exists, has not been accompanied by "the confrontation, the demonstration Correction A picture on page 3 of The Herald, May 11, showing a cheque for being pre- sented to the Alberta Associa- ion for the Mentally Retarded jy the Alberta Auctioneers As- sociation, said the Lethbridge charity auction contributed XM to the total amount.

"A consideration of the leis- ure group that stimulates so many of. our contemporary movements the young does not reveal overwhelming support or event in the west. Dr. Thomas said, however, his "ignorance of this may sim- ply be the blindness of an east- erner coming from Toronto or Ottawa the two are often in- distinguishable in the annals of western crime." Perhaps the shifting of blocs associated with national politics may be a factor in producing major alterations in the Prairie psyche that provides the grounds for genuine unification in some form or another, he said. "The granite conservatism of Manitoba now just shifting a little to moderate liberalism, the radical populism of Saskat- chewan with its real commit- ment to the grass roots now struggling with industrialization, the homely conservatism of Al- berta now transformed by great wealth into a conservative lib- eralism. are important con- siderations. "Changes have occurred that may in fact have created great- er commonality. although I am not yet convinced that it is the basis for the necessary con- vulsion of union, or that what might be gained were this forc- ed for whatever reason, might be much greater than that which was he said. However, the process of mov- ing toward union "would pro- duce a Prairie flowering in every area of human endeavor." WESTMINSTER DRUGS Wes! minster Shopping Centre 13th St. N.
