Find Out In The Herald's Next "CHINOOK" INCLUDED WITH THE TUESDAY. NOV. 28, ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Prejudice charged aim only at profits' By RUDY I1AUGENEDEH Herald Slalf Vl'rilcr Real estate developers owe more to their lennants than four walls and a roof, says Tony Tobin, director of city preventive social services. Developers make money from the rents paid and should show some social conscience, he says. Mr. Tobin fold a group of lennants at 1411 Ashgrove Apartments that all major ren- tal projects should be designed complete with adult and chil- dren's recreation areas. Pre-school programs are also important, he added. Lelhbridge developers are not making such considerations and, it seems, arc more inter- ested in making profits than with meeting the needs of peo- ple, he says. The tennanls at the meeting live in a so-called complex, formerly low rental known as Spanish Village. Most were wel- fare recipients and single par ents. They were meeting to assess rumors that all persons of na- tive origin, all those on wel- fare and single parents were to be gradually evicted as part of a new management plan. In addition, the lennants feared increased rents. The new owners, B. and H Homes Ltd. of Edmonlon, had, some of the tennants complain- ed, evicted 11 similar families the year previous after pur- chasing the first part of the complex. Tough rules The Lennants complained ol tough new restrictions which even prohibited the movement of children in the hallways. The tennants assumed their rents would IMJ increasing soon because they heard the rents in the other buildings purchased by the company had been in- creased. They said their build- ing was newer than the others, one of three in (he complex, and an increase in rent would logically follow sin't.

SOUTHERN STATIONERS LTD. 316 71 h Slreet Soulh of the managing company later told The Herald the tennants' fears were unfounded and that no rent increases or evictions were being contemplated. He said he would gladly meet with the tennants group at a pre-arranged dale and talk things over, including the feas- ibility of recreation areas and pre-school programs. The tennants' as frustrating meeting was the problem it was trying to clarity. The tcnnants on three oca- sions during the meeting tele- phoned the complex's new resi- dent-manager. On the first occasion no one answered the telephone. Con- tacted a minutes later, the resident-manager, who had just j arrived from Calearv a few days previous, said he would mr-et Ihe tennants in five or so minutes. Three-quarters of an hour later, the tennants called again and a woman said, "he's on his way over." Police called A few minutes later a Lclh- bi idge City Police constable ar- rived. The constable said the resident-manager had com- plained of "loud a "noisy party" and that he had been threatened. The constable then smiled, ana locked at the group. The 20 persons there included rep- resentatives of the press, YWCA, and the preventive so- cial services department as as the tennants. Shortly afterwards, the resi- dent-manager finally appeared, apologized to- his "hasty" ac- tion and went on to deny all tho rumors. The resident-manager, how- ever, said the tennants' rights extended only from tho suite door inwards. The hallways and lobby were the responsibility of the management. He confirmed the new policy that children were not allowed in Ihe hallways, although he would "bend some" during the colder winter months. Fears remain The tcnnants. following the meeting, remained suspicious and fearful that their rents, which ranged between and i'I70 per month for unfurnished apartments, would increase. The lennants said any in- crease in rent would probably mean a mass exodus of welfa'-e tennants to cheaper and lesser quality apartments. They claimed many landlords practice wholesale discrimina- tion against single parents on welfare and that most welfare families were forced to move about once per year because of rent increases.

HOUSE CF ART LCC head raps gov't The LcLhbridge Community College may pull out of the pro- vincial government's Priority Employment Program this win- ter unless some of the problems are straightened out, says Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of LCC. He was commenting on a statement in the legislature by Dr. Bert Hohol, minister la- bor, that he will reconsider the amount of money to be allocat- ed to LCC for the program this winter. Dr. Hohol was asked by Dick Gruenwald (SC-Lethbridge West) whether the government will consider injecting another S500.000 into the program at LCC in addition to the already allocated. The minister said money for the program this year has been distributed throughout the province on the basis of unem- ployment figures and Leth- bridge is one of the least, if not the least, unemployed areas in the province. Dr. Stewart countered that LCC had 757 students enrolled in PEP programs last year more than any other institution in the province and there could be as many this year if the college is allowed a free rein to accept everyone who ap- plies. He said one of the criteria for enrolment was that the person had to be unemployed. "We had more students than anyone else so there must be an unemployment problem he said. Dr. Stewart said he doesn't like the idea of the college turning away students who want an education. "To think of students coming here to apply and for only reasons of dollars and cents we would have to turn them away I don't think that's my idea of providing service to stu- he said. So far, about 130 students have asked that they be con- tacted if the PEP is offered this year. Dr. Stewart said he is also uptet that the college was not involved in the planning of this year's program. The college has 45 programs ready to go on short notice but, unless the government straight- ens out a few matters, the pro- grams may never get off the ground. ".My concern is that if the government doesn't get a few things straightened out, my dir- ectors are prepared to recom- mend to the Board of Govern- ors that not participate in the Dr. Stewart said.
