Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tutldny, November 3, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGB HERALD 19 Omniplex Decision Up To Taxpayers EDMONTON (CP) Tile falc of Omniplcx, a trade, conven- tion and covered aporls centre, now rests with taxpayers. After more than 20 hours of hours Saturday and 12iz council came up with the wording of a money bylaw on which rale- payers will vote Nov. 25. Council accepted a design for Omniplex from Hashniani Con- struction of Calgary. It would cost million with an addi- tional S3 million for such things as equipment, furnishings, land, parking lots, street widening and excavating. Tha building will house a foot- ball field, liockey rink, track and field facilities, convention flora and exhibit space. Taxpayers would gel 1.2 mil- lion square feet of usable space in a cross-shaped building cov- ered by an over-hanging roof. The only existing covered slndium of such magnitude is Ihs Astrodome in Houston which doesn't have hcckey or ice shows or convention and trade shows. Omniplex could house more than spectators for foot- ball and almost for hockey. If fewer than half of the rate- payers vote on the bylaw two- thirds must be in favor. It more than hslf vote, a simple major- ity is sufficient. Alberta Election Talk In The Air EDMONTON (CP) speculation of a provincial gen- eral election next year, nom- inations are being made with increasing frequency across Alberta by t h e Social Credit and Progressive Conservalive parties. Redistribution, passed at the 1970 session of the legislature, .provides 75 seats for the next election compared with tte presejil 65-seats in the legisla- ture. The ruling Social Credit government now has 55 scats with the Progressive Conserva- tives holding 10. Social Credit nominated their 19th candidate Monday in Whitecourt, one of the new con- stituencies. Clyde Ferro, 56, owner of a garage and motel, won by acclamation at a meet- ing attended by about 75 per- sons. The riding is made up large- ly of the former Lac Ste. Anne constituency which was won from Social Credit in 19G7 by Conservative Dr. Hugh Horncr. Tire Conservatives so far have nominated 47 candidates. RCMP Town Units Waste Of Talent CALGARY (CP) The re- placement of municipal police- men in small communities by RCMP is a "waste of top-notch says H. R. Minion, di- rector of Ihe Canadian Secur- ity and Police Academy at Air- drie. "With proper training there should be no reason why mu- nicipalities in the West can't maintain their own police de- partments." Town bylaws and local traf- fic enforcement can be best handled by local forces, he said. "RCMP constables some- times don't provide bylaw ser- vice and that's a pretty impor- tant part of the picture." Figures from the attorney- general's department show that only 20 towns with a popula- tion of less than in Al- berta hire their own police French Anger Swells ST. LAURENT DU PONT, France (Reuter) Weeping relatives and friends attended a funeral service here for the 111 voung halloveen revellers who died when fire swept through a dance hall early Sunday.
