Salurdoy, November 1971 THE IETHBRIDGB HIRALD (Chretien still is firm about visiting reserves OTTAWA (CP) Indian Af- fairs Minister Jean Chretien told the Commons Friday that hii is firm in his intention not to visit reserves in northeastern Alberta until the Indians send their children back to school. 'He also told Don Mazan- kowski Vcgrevlllc) that he was anxious to inspect the re- serves where Indians claim liv- ing conditions arc almost un- bearable. They also want three new schools. As part of (heir protest against living and school condi- tions, the Indians have occupied the Alberta regional headquar- ters of the Indian Affairs de- partment. They also say they will hold a demonstration in Ottawa unless Mr. Chretien agrees to go to Al- berta to talk with them. Mr. Chretien told Grace Mac- Innis Kings- way) that his department still is studying an Ontario court ruling which says Indian women who marry whites still retain their Indian status. No decision has been made whether to appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court of Canada or to accept it and make amend- ments to the Indian Act incorpo- rating the change, Mr. Chretien said.

By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Police patrol boats equipped willi breatha- lyzers and intent on catching drunken sailors may be coming in on the wave of the future if a British Columbia MP has his way. Barry Mather (NDP Surry White Rock) says the tipsy sailor, whether he's in a small rowboat on a lake or a large sailboat or motor vessel in coastal waters, is becoming just as much as menace as the drunken driver on the high- ways. It's time to put a stop to this and other abuses of boat safe- ty, .says Mr. Mather, who has just introduced his private members bill on boating safely for first reading in Parliament. Not only would the bill lead to strong' regulations on drun- ken sailing, but it could also establish legislation compelling people to put their boats through safety checks and to take special operators' tests to ensure that they arc skillfu enough to be put in control of i boat. Mr. Mather suggests it would all be very similar to regula- tions governing motor vehicle operators now. Says the NDP MP: "Thou- sands ot people in British Col- umbia alone operate boats. In other parts of Canada thou- sands more people take a week- end trip to a lake to spend an afternoon on the water. It is becoming as hazardous to sail in a boat as it is to drive a car or. a highway. My bill would seek to eradicate a developing problem before lhat problem lets out of hand." The bill calls for Transport Minister Don .lamieson to set up a boating safety advisory council. The council would be made up of one senior civil ser- vant and four representatives of boating safety organiza t i o n s. They would advise him on what regulations are needed to pro- mote recreational boating safe- ty. It would establish legislation governing minimum safety con- struction standards for boats and associated equipment and licensing and efficiency stand- ards of pleasure boat operators. Mr. Mather admits that there will probably be substantial op- position to his proposals. But he points out there was plenty of opposition when driver testing car safely checks and breathal- yzer tesls were first introduced, incidentally, Mr. Mather was one of Canada's first Parlia- mentarians to propose breatha- lyzer tesls for drunken drivers. But if Ihere is opposition to boating regulations, there is also support. In the United Slates, where about 45 million people are involved in pleasure j boating and where more than persons die accidentally every yaar through lack of boaling safely, a federal boat safety act was passed earlier this year. The ad will do in the U.S. many of the things Mr. Malher wants to see done in Canada. In Canada, E. G. Shorler, presidenl of Ihe British Colum- bia Safety Council, has written to Mr. Malher "wishing him every success in this worth- while endeavor" and pointing out his own concern alioul boal- ing safely. Says Mr. Shorter: "I consider lhat operating a boat requires many more skills than are needed lo operate an automobile on Ihe highway. II seems desir- able thai all boal operators should be subject to a test and be licenced." The council president says he has been interested in boating for many years. However, be- cause of the lack of training and knowledge of navigation of the "multitude of boat lors" he has given up Ihe ac-1 great problem on the horizon i ing interest and quite often the unless something is done now." points raised in the bills are tivity. He also says that he consid- i And, concludes Mr. Mather, ers alcohol just as much a prob-! private members' bills rarely lem in boating as it is in cars become law in themselves. Bui on Iho highways. Mr. Mather himself to two Ihings. He isn't a long- time boating enthusiast and there isn't much chance that his bill as such will become law.

I'm rather a longtime j safety advocate who can see a j they do focus attention of gov- admits eminent on problems of press- adopted into law in one form or another. So, Mr. Malher feels thai in- evitably his safety-conscious ideas are sailing to success. Named Salesman of the Month ASPHALT PAVING TOUESTRUP Construction Co. lid.
