Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ontario slices financial aid to colleges Friday, Nov.mfatr 24, TH( ItTHBMDOI HERALD _ JJ TORONTO (CP) Ontario is cutting back its financial aid to universities, a move which will stop new campus construction across the province. Jack McNie, minister of col- leges and universities, told the legislature Thursday that marked changes are taking place in post-secondary educa- tion, "not only in Ontario but in other provinces and jurisdic- tions as well." In view of these changes "and having in mind rising costs of higher education in a period of limited financial Ontario was re-assessing its over-all priorities. "As a result there will be a deceleration in the flow of capi- tal support to those institutions which receive funds through this ministry. He gave no figures. IMMEDIATE EFFECT "The effects of this decrease In capital flow in the years ahead will be felt immediately as it will not be possible to pro- ceed with many projects which the institutions had scheduled to begin this the minister said. Building projects would be limited to those already under construction. Mr. McNie said the pause would provide the governmen and institutions with the oppor tunity to study current enrol ment trends "and to examine existing inventories of space with a view to more intensive utilization, and generally to re- consider their plans for future development." From 1964, when the depart- ment of university affairs was created, full time enrolment in lost-secondary educational in- stitutions increased to about from Capital grants to the univer- sities from the province have totalled million for new buildings and million has been allocated for community college building programs. But this year, many class- rooms have been depleted be- cause of an unexpected drop in student enrolment and many universities and colleges have had to make do with less money in provincial grants than ex- pected. However, for the next aca- demic year, the basic per-stu- dent grants to universities and colleges were increased despite the fiscal squeeze. The grant per student had been set earlier at an in- crease of per head. Mr. McNie's announcement of a new tight-money policy for post-secondary education came two days after Mr. McNie told 500 protesting students outside Queen's Park that future stu- dent loans may be repayable according to income rather than as a normal bank loan. The students were protesting tuition fee increases an- nounced last spring. Calgary police board is named EDMONTON (CP) Attor- ney General Merv Leilch an- nounced Thursday the appoint- ment of John Edward Prothroe, John E. Davis and Robert Mont- gomery to the Calgary Police Commission. Mr. Leitch said the appoint- ments were recommended by a Judge quits case CALGARY (CP) Judge W. J. Harvie disqualified himself Thursday from hearing a pro- vincial court case because he said he had received a copy of a letter from defence counsel "complaining about me." He made the decision at the opening of a trial involving Mi- chal Krassman, ower of Spot Cash Income Tax Service, and Maurice Dansereau, manager of the company. They are charged on several counts of charging more inter- est than allowed under the Small Loans Act and one count of lending money without a li- cence. Judge Harvie said he receiv- ed a copy of the letter by coun- sel D. P. MaGuire which said he. as judge, should not pro- ceed in the litigation. The judge said he understood copies also went to the attor- ney general's department and the law society. "This is probably a matter I should back out said the judge, who made no mention of exact details in the letter. Judge G. G. Cioni replaced Judge Harvie after a 20-minute adjournment. majority of aldermen and were made after consultation with the mayor as required by the Police Act. Mr. Leitch also said that act- ing on the recommendations of the majority of the aldermen was in keeping with his govern- ment's policy to be respon- sive to the views of local gov- ernment. He said that because the people of Calgary pay for the police force, they should have a substantial say in the membership of the police com- mission, although he pointed out that the actual way in which the law is enforced is a provincial responsibility. Mr. Leitch also said the ap- pointments were made after consultation with the mayor as required by the Police Act. In Calgary, Mayor Sykes said he met with Mr. Leitch Thurs- day morning, but the mayor said the meeting wasn't that successful. "He said my ideas were 'in- the mayor told a news conference. The mayor said he suggested that a clergyman, t e a c 1) e r, young adult, a woman, a work- ing man, and perhaps a minor- ity group representative would be good choices for member- ship on the commission. We don't want politicians on the make, establishment mem- bers, too many lawyers, or too many affluent men on the com- the mayor said. 'Chicken' game ends in death VANDERIIOOF, B.C.
