Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE May Quebec language bill It'll affect everybody By ROB BULL Herald Quebec Bureau QUEBEC This province's proposed legislation making French Quebec's official language will have an effect on all parts of Canada. One obvious group of people who will have to adapt are those working for companies with a head office in this prov- particularly if they are transferred here. Quebec wants to increase the number of middle and senior French-speaking management in companies operating in the province. A series of carrot-like measures will be enticing companies to use more French in their day-to-day dealings with the general pubic here and with their local employees. The government will grade companies by their degree of and may encourage them with special subsidies as well as by making available to them many technical resources to help fullfill this task Before a company can obtain concessions or benefits from the provincial public it will have to be certi- fied according to its procedures. The legislation has no effect over federal crown corporations or federal civil servants working in this province. In fact Ottawa is still transferring monoglot English-speaking civil servants here from other parts of Canada. But if a company head-office transfers somebody here who does not speak he will still be able to work in English. Education Minister Francois Cloutier told a news It is very obvious that business will continue to be conducted at least in part in English. the case in in in in Switzerland.

And the provincial whose credibility has not been helped by Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau's avowed intent to aim his big guns at still are hoping to pluck several seats from the Conservatives who seem nonchalant about the whole thing. The Liberals in Alberta are bringing back some of the people who have served them including former agriculture minister Bud Olson who got whipped in Medicine Hat by Bert Hargrave and Edmonton Alderman Una McLean a perennial second- runner. The Socreds are hinting of at least one former provincial cabinet minister seeking a nomination somewhere in but won't pin down either the seat or the person. The Tories are quite calmly predicting the renomination of all their 18 incumbents. Battle River MP HarryTCuntz died in office last December and no byelection was held. The Battle River Tory nomi- nation race is shaping up to be one of the most interesting in the province with at least seven candidates expected to participate in the three-day roundrobin nomination.
