Phone 327-5540 i By RICHARD BURKE Staff Writer The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce got a look at some of the problems Uie Tssk Force on Urbanization and the Fu- ture mil be looking at during the next two and a half years at a beard of directors meet- ing Wednesday. j Peter Boothroyd, co-ordinat- I ir.g director of the Task Force, told the chamber inputs from all sectors of society will be sought to determine how lo cope with increasing urbafliza- j tion in the province. The extent of urbanization Is illustrated by the fact that 52 per cent of the people in the province live in either Edmon- ton or Calgary- Over-all, 70 per cent of the people live in centres with a population over Mr. Boothroyd ssid. The switch from rural to ur- ban orientation has come about in the past 20 years, he said, and the trend is continuing. He pointed to UK instability of agricultural markets and the closure or centralization of transportation facilities in ru- ral areas as contributing to their decline. On tlie other hand, the cities offer attractive shopping facili- ties, entertainment, higher edu- cation and jobs to pull people away from their farms or ham- lets. Mr. Boothroyd said the exo- dus from the rural centres j causes a hardship on mer- chants, individuals and schools left in those areas. Migration to the cities, of course, creates a demand for more businesses and schools there and perpetuates urbani- zation, he said. The problems caused tw a concentration of population are the centre of attention of Hie task force. What do you do about recrea- tion? How do you ease the pres- sure of housing is the host method of solid waste dis- posal? These are some of ques- tions the task forte hopes to f'uid answers for so that Alber- ta's cities do not become ugly and cumbersome like some of the existing larger cities in the United States. Mr. Boothroyd said there are many people working on the problems now, but not together. The task force is attempting to consolidate the efforts of the various groups nnd individuals into a task force committee. i This committee will study a j specific problem and make recommendations to the affect- j ed city, town, community or or- i ganization. j Sir. Boothroyd added the task force "is not going to wait three i years to make public the rec- i ommendations." tees can be used as vehicles to resolve arguments and prob- lems which crop up during the life of an agreement, because the agreement can become too rigid to the detriment of both Licensed Lethbridge women "Good morale and job satis- j drivers will have the qpportuni- faction among the workers can I ty of teaming what makes a be generated by management recognizing them as indivi- was another comment. Staff meetings to provide in- formation on major changes are suggested where specific labor-maivagemcnt groups do not exist. The delegates decided atti- tudes are important towards setting up good communication. "A willingness to communi- cate frankly and as fully as possible is required." Workshop speakers said safe- ty is an important tool within 1 a b o r-management- relations and consultation, and is an area that should be the subject of constant exchange between two parties.
