Canadian Labor Congress Head Outlines New Role EDMONTON (CP) The union movement would turn its attention in the 1970's to organ- izing the poor as well as seek- ing greater earnings for its own members, Donald MacDonald, president of the Canadian La- bor Congress, said Monday. Mr. MacDonald told del- egates at the opening of the CLC's eighth constitutional con- vention that organized labor in Canada will come to enjoy a much greater status as a force in society in the next 10 years. To fulfill its new role, he sug- gested, it will need to go be- yond the traditional framework of collective bargaining and take on the problems of pover- ty, regional disparity and pollu- tion. He also 'predicted a "very major extension of the process of collective bargaining" in the economy and the development of multinational corporations. The CLC president proposed creation of associations to rep- resent the interests of unem- ployed workers, tenants and the aged. Consumer co-operatives should be developed and there should be increased pressure for public and co-operative housing, he said. "The poor do not have a trade union or its said Canada Outdoors Save-The-Wolf Society Formed EDMONTON (CP) The authentic howl of a wild wolf isn't something you expect to hear in a city living room. But you can in Edmonton. It's a tape recording, made on a night in northern Alberta, and it sets the atmos- phere for the headquarters of the Canadian Wolf Defenders. This is an incorporated soci- ety founded by Alberta-born Bobert C. Guest, who has started a one-man fight to preserve the Canadian wolf. The society has a seven- point program aimed at wild- life departments and the gen- eral public to try to protect the animal: abolition of boun- ties, an end to the use of poi- sons, banning of steel traps, protection of wolves, coyotes and cougars, outlawing of shooting from aircraft, a ban on hunting from snowmobiles, and restrictions on the casual carrying of firearms. From a simple beginning, the society now appears to be gaining support. Mr. Guest said there are about 500 mem- bers in Canada, with large chapters in Alberta and On- tario. As well, chapters have been started in .California, Wiscon- sin and Great Britain. At least part of the interest due to the current concern over the gradual disappear- ance of many of Canada's na- tive species, he said. And the wolf is possibly the truest symbol of the North, he adds. The 31-year-old artist ques- tioned the open season on nat- ural predators such as wolves. He said they are only follow- ing the needs of nature and make no serious inroads on other game. He said there are scattered instances of hungry wolves making off with calves or lambs in the fringe farm areas. When these are re- ported and found authentic, the society does not stand in the way of corrective action. However, he said, wolves are often blamed unjustly and described a case in southern Alberta where the wolves were killed and it was found later the culprits were dogs gone "wild." He also has a file of persons living in the North who have been living close to wolves for years and never been at- tacked. "The wolf and its night-time howl are as much a part of Canada's heritage as the maple leaf, the beaver and Uie prairies. Let's not stand by and watch it pass into ob- livion." Joe Dodds Best Cowboy At Little Britches Rodeo HIGH RIVER (CP) Joe Dodds of Ponoka was the best of the young cowboys Monday when he took the all-round championship at the Little Britches Rodeo. The 12th annual rodeo was for contestants 16 years and younger. Dodds won the bareback and saddle bronc events and was one of the few contestants to complete his rides. Ronnie Akins of Nanlon won the calf roping in 3.3 seconds with Wayne Boisjoli of Calgary second in 3.4. Kirk Thomson of Black Dia- mond took the cow-riding event and Do ug VoM of Dewinton won the wild horse race. Dave DingcrvHle of Coleman won the boys' barrel race with Elva Walgenbach of Stettler ta- king the girls' division. Karen McDonald of Okotoks took the girls' colt scramble and Bill Gittens of Dewinton won the boys' section, STATE-SIXED PARK Everglades National Park, in Florida is larger than the state of Delaware. Mr. MacDonald. "I put it to the delegates at this convention that it is entirely appropriate for organized labor to provide that kind of organizational function on their behalf." Mr. MacDonald also called on labor to take action toward Equal educational opportunities for all, elimination of economic obstacles to participation public health insurance pro- gram, improved social security and stronger measures to pro- tect human rights. He also repeated the CLC's standing grievance against the federal government's prices and incomes commission anc government economic policy. The Liberal government in Ottawa, he said, has been the first in Canadian history to "de- liberately set about to create unemployment." "The prime minister has ad- mitted Mr. MacDonald said. "Indeed, he seems to derive a certain satisfaction from his success in doing so." He called the prices and in- comes commission "the most servile agency ever to appear in public life." SAYS GROUP CHANGED The commission, he said was appointed to study econ- omic trends but "was convert- ed, or allowed itself to be trans- formed into an arm of govern- ment. "It became a govern- mental errand boy." He added that organized workers will not accept the rtle of scape-goats in the govern ment's anti-inflation fight. "So 'far as the CLC is cm- cerned, the trade unions wil continue to bargain for wage increases which, in their opin ion, represent the legitimate demands of their members." Mr. MacDonald told dele- gates the CLC also has a role in attempting to resolve the problems between French and English Canada. "The plain fact of the matter is that the working people a Quebec earn less than people engaged hi comparable occupa- tions in other provinces." "Fortunately, a significant proportior of the membership of the congress is in Quebec and is thus linked with the trade union movement of Can- ada as a whole. "We are therefore equippet organizationally and otherwise for an endeavor to redress the imbalance between Quebec anc the other Provinces."
