The panel, of chairman Mar- tin Hoyt, a lawyer; Jean Block, business woman; Glen Thomp- son, an inmate at the provin- cial goal on day parole; Dan Conference ends with resolutions The Crime, Correction aiv You conference, sponsored b; the John Howard Society of A! b e r t a, concluded Sunday ir Leth bridge with resolution which it is hoped will eventual ly reach the governments. On Saturday the conference was split into small groups ti propose resolutions regarding the correctional system in Can ada. Two members from each group sat on a panel Sunday while members of the press fired questions at them. Question How are you go- ing to get the resolutions drawn up at this conference into HIP legislature and how are you go- ing to act? Answer The problem of having resolutions acted upon can only be solved by major rep- resentation. We will channel thi resolutions to the John Howard Society and then to the provin- cial government. Question Do you think you have enough information to make a resolution or a series of resolutions you can really get through to the government? The government likes suggestions from its own members. Answer we have had thor- ough conversation with knowl- edgeable people to have enough information. Now we'need the pressure of public opinion, through service1 clubs. We feel we have many capable people at our conference. Question Has there been any communication within the smaller groups formed? Answer For future conven- tions, groups should be given a specific topic to discuss. One member on the panel felt his group was lacking communica- tion. He said everyone present- ed their own ideas but wouldn't listen to the other persons. Question Attorney Gen- eral Edgar Gerhart said last night the federal government would have to create priorities through public pressure. How do you intend to make public pres- sure? Answer Talk to people in the neighborhood and tell there what the problem is. We have to get the masses involved to create pressure on MLAs, MPs and aldermen so they will inte- grate new legislation. We will get the John Howard Society to ap p r o a c h service clubs and other agencies and try to get them to adopt, as part of their community work, some responsibilities to involve crime and correction. We will also bring pressure on our elect- ed representatives. Question Resolutions will be made and filed at tlu's con- ference. People will meet again next year and again resolutions will be made and filed. What do you think of this? Answer In reality exhaus- tive studies are being made to- wards correction, pur job is to keep up with what's happening. The resolutions made at this conf e r e n c e will be carried through and presented at the Canadian Congress of Crimin- ology and Corrections confer- ence to be held in Ottawa in June, 1971.

"We're running about five per cent ahead of the same date last he said, "and although the campaign is offi- cially over, there are still a number of kits out which we are calling in this week. We are hopeful we will be able to collect the remainder of the goal in the next few weeks, certainly before Christmas." Mowbray, a student at Mour.l Royal Junior College in Calgary and Lethbridge Herald reporter Jim Wilson, centred questions on penal reform, use and mis- use of drugs, and the Magrath Report on Penal Reform. Mr. Gerhart said drug laws are the responsibility of the fed- eral government. "There is nothing good about uncontrolled use of he said. He said youth today knows the law and has chosen to ig nore it. The courts are handing cut stiffer sentences. "It is the duty of Parliament to set the sentences and the courts to apply the rehabilitative or deterrent." Mr. Gerhart said there is no program of public education in use now to deal with released prisoners in society. "This is the role of voluntary organizations because it is a so- cial problem. The attorney-gen- eral's office should have noth- ing more to do with a prisoner once he is released." Mr. Gerhart said there is no government policy to decide when an ex convict shall b hired by the government. "A ex convict is not the best ma terial for a civil service jo and there are some areas th? are closed to former inmates. The attorney general als said money paid to inmates i provincial penal institution would be increased by 1972 ani possibly 1971. Dealing with the Magrath Re port on Penal Reform Mr. Ger hart said it pointed to alcohol ism as a major problem i'oi Canadians. He said the "pseudo crimes' involving liquor offences whicl result in jail terms adds to Can- ada crime statistics, giving the country a bad record on the world sphere. "We put people in jail for li- quor offences, a move which doesn't solve the problem. As a result of the report, the control of juvenile delinquents has been switched to the de- partment of social development. Improvements in the institutions and methods of handling in- mates has also been happening. A move to add control of adult offenders to the department is also being studied.

Speaking at a two day Con- 1 servative rural industrialization PETEIt LOUGHEED conference in Lethbridge, Mr. Lougbced said residents of Fort Cliipewyan have "about given up" because the B.C. dam has lowered water levels near the town. very environment they depended on is drying up in front of (heir eyes."

Alberta has a "pretty poor .rack record" in taking advan- ,sge of the federal government's regional development incentives )rcgram, says the former Al- >erta director for the program. James Duncan, now a Vic- cria based business consul- tant, said Saturday the gov- ernment has lacked initiative in attracting busi nesses to the province. Petrochemical companie have studied Alberta for future locating, but because of lack of government interest, have set- tled in other provinces, "even in Newfoundland." Pre-election tlieme seen in PC regional meetings Provincial Progressive Con servatives, some 125 strong spent two days this weekem delving into the problems of bal ancing industrial developmen between rural areas and Alber ta's cities, notably Edmonton and Calgary. Delegates engaged Saturday and Sunday morning in work- ing sessions designed to pro- duce the basis of the party's platform for the next election expected in late spring, 1971. The conference was the fourth of a proposed set of five meet- ngs leading up to the parly's cinnual meeting in January in Calgary. The next meeting will be held in Banff in early December anc will be closed to all but party candidates and their campaign and business managers. Party leader Peter Lougheed. vho attended the Lethbridge conference, said he expects 55 candidates to be named by De- cember. One delegate got a laugh in for his remark that i] small towns can exist under Social Credit, nothing can de- stroy them." But aside from needling the government, delegates spent about 10 hours, in discuss i o n groups or in open forums, at- empting to pro d u c e positive Among the suggestions were: Establishment of a depart- ment of pollution control to jring under domain the vork now being handled through 'arious departments.

'look at your care how they look" Mr. Loughccd told 125 dele- gales that the provincial gov- ernment should allot a budge! for the balanced development of smaller centres. Planning would involve not only industries, but the develop- ment of educational facilities and possibly decentralized gov- ernment offices. He had said earlier that smaller centres "know they have been passed by. Why has lion metropolitan Alberta not been bolstered by public He said the province "badly needs" an industrial develop- ment fund which would empha- size backing of medium- and small-sized industries. The fund should have not less than million and allow no more than per business. The Conservative lender also said the government should ini- tiate a regional incentives pro- gram, featuring well qualified officers and adequate funding. He suggested (lie k'ocreds' re- lationship with the federal gov- ernment was another area of "serious mismanagement. He said Iherc had been an ab- sence of co ordinated rlanning on the federal government's re- gional incentives program and on the LIFT program for wheat reduction. He said the government's mis- managements had been cover- ed up by its skill in propagan- da and pronouncements. 'rovuwre in jau irrigation nest set Edmonton MLA Bill Ytirko, Progressive Conserv alive spokesman on mines, minerals and pollution, said Saturday the provin c i a 1 government must take the lead in renovating irri- gation facilities. Mr. Yurko, a delegate to the Conservative conference on ru- ral industrialization in L e t h- bridge, said if Edmonton crys- tallized an irrigation program, "there probably wouldn't be (any trouble interesting the fed- eral government." I He said although the province had alloted Sl.G million to irri- gation rehabilitation in the past two years the government has no definite program on water and has done nothing about re- financing or long term finan- cing for irrigation upgrading. "We can't jeopardize the whole thing by letting the facil- ities fall apart."
