28 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Wednesday, November 1. 1972 Alberta housing plan proposed EDMONTON (CD A gov- ernment biK'klK'ncht'r Lokl She legislature Tut-iby Alberta should consider a housing poli- cy which would exclude gov- ernment ownership. Les.lJe Young of Edmonton Jasper Place, setondcd by Ron Ghitter of Calgary Eultalo, made Lhe proposal in a private member's motion Lo the house. "I think it's time the legisla- ture addressed itself lo Ihe re- sponsibility of the province in terms of housing." The Pro- gressive Conservative member said at the start of a 40-mimite speech winch covered many aspects of housing. "This resolution is almost in the opposite direction of most government attempts to involve itself in housing." He said the province needs an average of new resi- dences a year but that was ap- parently as far as Ihe govern- ment's knowledge of the hous- ing situation went "We don't have sufficient analyses to know whether they should be apartments, whether they should be duplexes, wheth- er they should be condomini- ums, whether they should be senior citizens' housing or what they should be. The state of our government's services in tliis direction needs consider- able attention." Mr. Young suggested Alberta should encourage private de- velopers by following n policy proposed recently in Ontario under which the government is considering assisting develop- ers in return for a number of long-term leases on a number of residences in any develop- ment. This permits the government "to scatter the people who would otherwise be in public housing." "Under this scheme, the hous- ing will not be owned by the government but will be owned and maintained the same as the other units of that particu- lar properly." Claims Liberals did ]oV EDMONTON (CP) The federal Liberal party did a "lousy job" of communicating and of selling its farm legisla- tion resulting in its rejection by western voters, Alberta Lib- eral leader Bob Russell said here. Mr. Russeil said he was not surprised at the outcome which saw Liberal strength in the four western provinces decline to seven seats from 27 in the last Parliament. But the saw-off situation in- dicated concern for the coun- try's political future because the Conservatives have only two seats in Quehe0 home of one third of the country's pop- ulation, while (he have only a handful of seats in the West, Mr. Russell said. "It's not a healthy situation for Canada." The results proved the need (or a strong party base in the province and, he s jd, the Lib- erals have a future both in Al- berta and federally because of its basic reform platform, "even if it doesn't loofc very .rosy today." THEY'LL 11E BESTHOYED At Grande Prairie, Conser- vative house leader Ged Bald- win said both Prime Minister Trudeau and New Democratic Party leader David Lewis will be "destroyed" as a result of the non-decisive election. Mr. Baldwin, a clear victor in his Peace River riding where he polled nearly three times the voles of the nearest contender Jake Van Voorst of the NDP suggested no minority gov- ernment could last more than a year. "They'll be after Lewis' blood. He'll be destroyed. Tru- deau will be destroyed. They'll bolh be gone within a year." Mr. Baldwin called the elec- tion "a bad thing for Canada; and yet, it will clear people's thinking." NEW LEADER SEEN Pierre Trudeau will step down as Liberal party leader, possi- bly within two months, Alberta NDP leader Grant Notley said. "I think Trudeau will go he can't deal with a minority government the way Lester Pearson said Mr. Not- ley. "It's my guess the Liberals will have a new leader in just a few months." Mr. Notley said he was de- lighted with the popular vote swing to the New Democratic Party in both Ottawa and Al- berta, and said the Alberta party would begin preparing immediately for a possible fed- eral election withta the next year. It would also begin to gear itself for the next provin- I cial election. Convicts have own autos on prison parking lot KINGSTON (CP) A pro- vincial judge found it hard to believe when he learned Tuesday that convicts can have cars parked on the Col- lins Bay penitentiary parking lot. Judge P. E. D. Baker, hearing a car theft charge against William J. Stockton, 21, was lold a car belonging to another had been taken from the parking lot at Collins Bay, in an escape Sept. 11. "You mean a guard don't he asked Assistant Crown attorney John Belt. "No. It says here, that the owner was an other convict in the in- Mr. Belt replied. A guard explained that "it's not uncommon for cer- tain inmates who work out- side the institution to have their own cars on the parking lot for use while on day pa- role." Evidence showed that Stockman broke into a penitentiary locker to get the keys. Stockman, who had 61 days remaining to serve on three previous convictions Tor car theft, was given a 15-month term for escaping custody and 12 months concurrent for car thelt.
