Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta M TMI LfTHtftlDQf HERALD HOVWIOW Final LeDain report Yule gift for Ottawa By JEFF CARRUTHERS HeraM Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The Trudeau government will be getting a jpecial Christmas present this the long-awaited and un- toubtedly controversial final report of the LeDain Commis- sion of Inquiry into the Non- Medical Use of Drugs in Canada. The which is now being printed at the Queen's Printer in Hull and which is expected to be made public before the end of the year and possibly will set out the LeDain Com- mission's recommendations MI what Canada should do about such major and still- zrowing drug problems as heroin addiction and the abuse of other drugs like LSD and Just as its final after months of delays due in part to transla- tion will Evaporate an often-used ex- for federal government inaction in the drug abuse Field. And it could heat up the irug abuse topic sufficiently to make it politically relevant health Minister Marc Lalonde has repeatedly said he was deferring any govern- ment action on the already- announced new softer can- nabis policy statements on how to deal with heroin abuse in such cities as Van- Toronto and and on imple- menting already-prepared remedies for the problem until after the final report of the LeDain Commis- sion is published. The Minister also earlier this year refused a request from Commission Chairman Gerald LeDain to allow publication of the English ver- sion of the final to save months of delay resulting from translation difficulties. Information Canada Wednesday confirmed that all the translation and other preparatory work on the final report had been completed and that the actual printing has already begun The agency estimated that the high-priority printing job from start to finish will take six possibly less. The LeDain Commission is ex- pected to follow its previous practice and release the report to Health Minister Lalonde within hours after the printing is finished and release the report to the public within two days of its being given tq Mr. Lalonde. With any the report could be public before Christ- but at least before the New according to a health department official. Information Canada is printing English copies and French copies. The report will sell at Information Canada bookstores across the country at each. One health department offi- cial describes the report as being definitive work on drug It is expected to popular reading fare The report will include the Commission's controversial recommendations on heroin most notably that Canada experiment with giv- ing legal heroin to some heroin addicts in much the same way that the heroin sub- stitute methadone is given to addicts. Navy may keep track of fishing vessels By KEN POLE OTTAWA The possi- jility of using Canadian naval vessels for surveillance and control of foreign fishing leets was raised Thursday by Environment Minister Jack Davis. Mr. Davis was appearing as j witness before the Commons external affairs which is discussing proposals for the 1974 Law of the Sea including a minimum 200-mile offshore fishing limit Donald Munro said Canada had enough trouble keeping track of foreign vessels with only a 12-mile limit and asked if the coast guard and the navy would be brought into action if a 200-mile limit goes into effect Mr Davis said it would have to be a combination of defence department and fisheries pro- tection service com- bined with aircraft sur- veillance. with the support of othercoastal has pro- posed a 200-mile limit where the continental margin extends past to the outer limits of the margin. ENFORCEMENT NEEDED Mr. Munro suggested Canada would not be very credible if it proposed such a wide margin without a fleet to enforce it. When deputy environment minister R. F. Shaw said in- creased use of aircraft and of new satellites will facilitate control of foreign Mr. Munro don't Leonard director- general of the international di- vision of the fisheries and ma- rine said offending vessels would be banned from Canadian waters. Mr. Munro remained uncon- just shake our finger at Outside the committee he said he really didn't think gunfire was the solution. Canada should be able to demonstrate it can enforce its offshore limits.

Louis Gulmond and family. would happen if Canada fails to get the support for its proposals at the conference scheduled next summer at Venezuela. He also asked Mr. Davis whether a unilateral declara- tion of a 200-mile limit is waiting in the wings in case the wider margin is rejected SERVED NO PURPOSE The environment minister replied it would no pur- t'o announce a unilateral even if it existed Mr Davis told the com- mittee the main pressure against the Canadian proposal probably will come from the Soviet Japan and nations with large long- distance fishing fleets. Mr Legault said Japan would be hurt severely by a 200-mile limit. The Soviet Union has spent millions on its vast fleet and they want to protect their invest- ment and their source of Mr. asked whether Canada might make any con- cessions with its continental margin proposal to salvage a 200-mile limit on both the Atlantic and Pacific said that no way go down fighting DISPUTE FLARES EDMONTON The president of Local. 390 of the Edmonton Musicians Associa- tion says the decision that the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra wouldn't play for school children Wednes- day was made by the manager of the symphony not by the musicians Harry Fanner was com- menting in an interview yesterday on a dispute which sent children from the Edmonton separate school system back to their classes from the Jubilee Auditorium without hearing the music. Mr. Farmer said the dispute was largely concerned with musicians' hours of service. Under a contract which ex- pired last musicians per- forming two back-to-back school concerts in which instruments didn't have to be moved were credited with IVz concerts. The old contracts was to be in effect until a new ment is he said. But recently concerts for school including a performance and workshop sessions which necessitate moving have been considered as only one service by the symphony society The orchestra's musicians think they should be credited with concerts for the joint concert-workshop perfor- said Mr. Farmer. One concert is generally considered hours of work Regarding Wednesday's the musicians told the symphony society's John that they would give both their concert and workshops on but would not move their instruments to workshop rooms if only credited with one said Mr. Farmer. The musicians also offered to give just the after which a regularly- scheduled film could be but Mr. Holgerson re- jected both proposals so the musicians did not said Mr. Farmer.

You have to be careful where you talk to federal politicians these days. Leonard president of the Saint John Commercial Fishermen's met with Environment Minister Jack Davis for about 35 min- utes in the lobby of the Admi- ral Beatty Hotel in September during a visit to the city by Prime Minister Trudeau and several members of his cabi- net Now Mr. Wilson has re- ceived a 88 bill from the hotel for rental of a meeting room Ecuador Three rafts trying to reach Australia from Ecuador are being swept southwards by strong winds and may have to be taken in radio reports reaching here said. The rafts are participating in an expedition that is trying to prove that pre-Colombian Huancavilca inhabitants of Ecuador navigated the Pacific and reached Polynesia in sim- ilar craft. Canadians are among the crew. Vital the 38-year-old Spanish leader of the 12-man was quoted as say- ing the rafts were being driven directly south instead of southwest and would miss their Mooloolaba Beach in unable to correct their course a former French For- eign Legion spoke to an Australian ham radio oper- ator and the conversation was picked up here by Joe an Ecuadorian engineer and amateur radio enthusiast. Magen reported the rafts were only 200 nautical miles from the Australian after completing most of their voyage He said the Australian ask- ed whether Alsar wanted to be taken in tow by tugboats. The Spaniard said be would make further efforts to correct the rafts' course before giving a final answer. 4 CANADIANS ABOARD Canadian sources said four Canadians are among the 12 men in the raft expedition.

The rafts are 35 feet long and made entirely of logs and with no metal at- similar to the an- cient Huancavilca craft. The expedition is Alsar's third attempt. In 1967 his raft sank but he reached Australia in another raft in 1970 after 161 days.
