WOOLWOMTH OO. LNMITIDJ IF YOU TAKE AWAY OUR LOW PRICES YOU'VE GOT A REGULAR DEPARTMENT STORE Joe Balla About 10 years ago the water resources branch of the department of agriculture decided it would go along with the in- cessant badgering of the nearby farmers and once and for all drain the water from Stirling 18 miles south of. Lethbridge. The idea then was to dig a main canal through the centre of the lake and head it down through the coulee to the east. Most of the complaining was coming from a few farmers who took on high water and had some flooded land to the west during wet weather. It was then agreed that the wetlands could be drained through a bypass canal and a good percentage of the main lake could DC saved as a staging area for ducks and geese in the fall. It became clear that all a number of the adjacent farmers wanted was to get rid of the wild waterfowl altogether. The following year a rather odd thing happened. Proper control facilities were not put into place in time. For the next two years the main flow of the water went east. With no check it kept on going. Ducks Unlimited became interested in the project. Its proposal called for saving Stirling except for the wetlands portion. the creation of many more miles of shoreline downstream. All this would also serve the additional purpose of stock watering. Various fish and game clubs and Ducks Unlimited got busy and built goose nests and a few islands near the centre of the lake. The fish and wildlife branch of the department of lands and forests became extremely interested and was ready to help in any way that it could. holy gopher there's still not water in Stirling Lake. The department of agriculture now appears to be the main authority. It hasn't said go nor has it publicly said 'no.' The solution for the sportsmen and nature people appears to to the political Before this can that concerted and organized pur- pose of the fish and gamers will have to be revitalized. It has kind of fallen apart on Stirling Lake. Ducks Unlimited may not like too much noise-making. It rubs against the philosophy. it will have to be noise or else. Or is there some junior authority in government who doesn't like ducks and geese Consumer affairs minister lacks initiative OTTAWA To his Herb Gray's name de- scribes the kind of job he has been doing for the last twelve months as the third federal minister of consumer and cor- porate affairs. Gray is a very taciturn gives you the benefit of knowing what he's not the best-suited man in the cabinet for the job he doesn't project enough energy and most consumers wouldn't even know who the minister of consumer affairs is or what he's doing for depends whether people want rhetoric or says Mr. Gray. A reserved he has in eleven years as MP for Windsor-Walkerville earn- ed a reputation as a hard worker. think this work needs more than somebody who'll make a grand gesture from time to time. Because even- tually people catch up with as they said. SOLID STEPS The last year has not been filled with simple as Mr. Gray sees but with a series of solid steps towards increasing the wall of protec- tion and information available to consumers. this first I've done what a lot of people said they didn't expect to see a major bill on competition policy before the He regards the competition bill as the main achievement of the last year. A reincarnation of a former competition act which died on the government order paper in it is the first of two bills he has lined up. It is aimed at consumer protection and help to small businessmen. Mr. Gray also has pushed through a number of regu- lations during the course of the with safety caps on household baby hockey packaging and labelling weights and he was shifted from his portfolio as revenue minister into con- sumer affairs Nov. 1972. Herb Gray you're all you can do is talk about you never have a chance to actual- ly develop a have it work out the problems involved. And there are all sorts of policy areas'clamor- ing for of which are of interest to some seg- ment of the population. since the government only has so many dollars to spend at any one there has to be some decision as to Pensioners to benefit in bank pension plan TORONTO The Royal Bank of Canada has an- nounced an Id-million supple- ment to its existing pension plan that could mean increases of up to 47 per cent for some pensioners. The supplementary plan provides for increases linked to the federal Consumer Price Index. W. Earle president of the said in a letter to pensioners made public we have in mind is to increase each bank making due allowance for old- age security and other govern- ment so that the total purchasing power will be the same as at AIM FOR JANUARY The bank plans to start the new system in January but if details have not been worked out by will be retroactive to Jan. 1 when the plan .is started. A bank spokesman said that for a pensioner who retired about 10 years the infla- tion or to be used in computing pensions would be the neighborhood of 47 per The bank would ensure that his final pension increased by that amount. An annual supplement of up to a year has been paid by the bank in recent years for each year a recipient has been on pension. This program will remain in effect where it is of greater benefit to the pen- sioner.
