Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta November 6, 1974-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Canada'close as it can be' to full employment Monsignor dies al Kossland Throws a cup A female commuter, right, throws a plastic cup at the striking freight workers who held up commuter service for nearly one hour at Central Station in Montreal Tuesday. WINNIPEG (CP) -Canada is as "close as can be" to full employment despite federal statistics that show the jobless rate to be more than five per cent of the labor force, industrialist Walter R. Lawson said Tuesday. Mr. Lawson, president of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association said in a speech to the CMA branch here that he does not accept the national unemployment statistics. "We are as close as can be to a state of full employment in Canada generally and in the West particularly He said unemployment statistics "are not credible and should be restructured and refined to give a truer ac- tual picture of the various classes of job seekers in Canada." Latest federal statistics set the unemployment rate at 5 4 per cent Unemployment in- surance payments have risen to about 3 billion this year compared with million in 1970 Mr Lawson, called it a crippling paradox with labor shortages on one. hand and inflated unemployment benefits on the other while employers search for workers to man their plants. He called for a national con- ference to discuss the whole area of income distribution, bringing together governments, organized labor, farmers, consumers and businessmen. The conference also would discuss the "broad problem of rewards for labor and returns on investments "The free forces of the mar- ket in these matters have be- come so distorted in recent years that I fear for the dis- location and collapse of the system." Mr Lawson, general manager of Domtar Packag- ing Ltd., said organized labor has a big stake in the preser- vation of the free-enterprise system But labor had become so powerful that it could hold the community at ransom." Labor, however, was only capitalizing on the system, "exploiting the advantages which have come to their hands He said in the process the collective bargaining system has come to the stage where it no longer serves the com- munity It had made it possible for vocal minorities to force labor leaders into irresponsible ac- tions.

Syd Thompson said that keeping Edmonton's retail and home delivery price iden- tical at 43 cents a quart prevents retailers from lower- ing or raising their milk prices. Faced with these circum- stances, Mr. Thompson said the home delivery cost should be increased, or home deliveries should be eliminated. He said although he wasn't against home delivery, con- sumers should have a choice whether they want to pay less for their milk at the grocery store, or pay "quite a bit more" for the convenience of home delivery. He claimed that under the existing system, Edmonton retailers are losing money to meet the home delivery prices and the same applied to retailers in other centres. Judgment reserved in Godron case MONTREAL (CP) Evangeline Godron appeared before an immigration appeal board here Tuesday to give evidence why she and her eldest daughter should not be deported. Mrs Godron maintains she was born in Calgary and is fighting a deportation order against her and Fidelia, her 12-year-old daughter born in Guatemala. The immigration department said Mrs. Godron was born in Chicago. One witness was Clarence Farmer. Mrs. Godron's former husband and father of her three younger children Erica. 4: Paul. 2: and Huey. 1. Mr. Farmer now lives in Montreal, where Mrs. Godron works as a cashier, but they spent most of their married life in Halifax. Mrs. Godron also lived in Calgary. Mr. Farmer told the board that he has been giving the family weekly and is will- ing to continue the support. Another witness was Mrs. Godron's employer, who said he trusts thousands of dollars to her care every month. A federal government auditor also testified on Mrs. Godron's financial position. Max Teitelbaum, Mrs. Godron's lawyer, said after the hearing that he feels there is sufficient evidence for Mrs. Godron and Fidelia to stay in Canada despite her failure to prove she is a Cana- dian citizen by birthright. The board reserved its judgment. No-fault insurance scheme outlined CALGARY (CP) -Govern- ment should concentrate on preventing traffic accidents and stay out of the insurance business, says Ian Mair, chairman of the Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBCK He told a convention of 250 insurance agents that "most people seem to think that government insurance is syn- onomous with no-fault in- surance but that just isn't so." He outlined a plan for no- fault insurance which has been proposed by the IBC as an alternative to government auto insurance. "It is not a total no-fault in- surance, but it goes further than any government in- surance in Western Canada." Mr. Mair said under the proposal, the driver's in- surance company pays the bill regardless of who caused the accident H would eliminate lawsuits arising from both personal injury and property damage sustained in car ac- cidents.
