Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta West premiers deny walkout Friday, May 28, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDOI HERALD - 17 By THE CANADIAN PRESS The premiers of the three Prairie provinces have denied they plan to walk out of next month's federal-provincial conference unless Quebec accepts a proposed constitutional amending formula. The strongest denial came from Premier Ed Schreyer of Manitoba who Thursday described a report to this effect as "absolutely unfounded." "I feel it would be completely unproductive to walk out of any federal-provincial conference. I can't think of anything that could give justification for walking out. "The whole episode leads me to think there is some mischief afoot, although I can't imagine what the motive would be. This is absolutely unfounded as far as Manitoba is concerned." Premier Ross Thatcher of Saskatchewan said the report was "not in accordance with the facts." He said that with a provincial election coming up June 23, there was "very real doubt" that he would be able to attend the conference at all. But if he doesn't, one of his ministers will. A spokesman for Premier Harry Strom of Alberta said Mr. Strom has been party to no plan whatever involving a walkout. Premier Robert Bourassa of Quebec described the walkout report as "news to me." Robert Nixon, Ontario Liberal leader, told the Oarleton Liberal Association Wednesday night that the conference June 12-14 was "shaping up as a disaster" because of the threatened walkout.

John Perez, 48, said he's turned a $200 profit on a $7.50 glass cutting kit he bought several weeks ago. What Perez calls "recycle art" is turning discarded beer and wine bottles into candle holders, drinking glasses and curios to decorate the home. A display of bottles is in the Miami restaurant where Perez tends bar. The theory, he explained, is to cut the bottle in the centre, place the top half upside down on the bottom. Then he glues the parts together and finishes the rough edges with wet sandpaper. Reorganization bill to senate OTTAWA (CP) - The Commons passed the government's reorganization bill, approving estabishment of an environment department and empowering the prime minister to create new ministries of state. Approval was given on an informal voice vote after two opposition amendments were defeated. The vote followed 23 days of debate. James A. McGrath (PC-St. John's East) wanted the deputy minister of the environment to carry the added title of deputy minister of fisheries. Under the bill, the present fisheries department would be eliminated. Liberals defeated the amendment 108 to 73, standing against the three opposition parties. Stanley Knowles (NDP-Win- nipeg North Centre) wanted public service pension provisions in the bill altered to give full pensions to public servants laid off after age 50. Liberals stood alone again to defeat that one 105 to 67. The bill now goes to the Senate. The Commons cancelled today's sitting to allow committees to reduce a work backlog. SETS UP DEPARTMENT Major clauses of the reorganization bill would: -Set up a department to take over environmental tasks now spread among several departments; -Permit the prime minister to create new ministries to handle specific jobs such as urban affairs; -Permit appointment of ministers of state for temporary assignments and to asist existing ministers; -Permit appointment of as many parliamentary secretaries as there are ministers; -Provide early retirement benefits to top public servants. After passing the bill, MPs attacked the government's proposal to put rye, flaxseed and rapeseed under Canadian wheat board jurisdiction. Jack Bigg (PC-Pembina) said the move would cause farmers a long wait for payments from the board just as they now do for wheat. Robert Simpson (PC-Churchill) said the change would put the northern Manitoba port of Churchill at a disadvantage compared with other ports because it has no facilities for grains such as rapeseed.
