Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wedntidcy, November 11, 1972 THE LHHtRIDGE HEKAID 19 PM treads softly on sensitivities of West and English By PAUL JACKSON Herald OUawa Bureau OTTAWA Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudcau appeared to be trying his upmost not to antagonize English-speaking and Western Canadians in his cabinet shuttle announced ear- lier this week. The prime minister didn't really have much cabinet mate- rial from the West to play around with, but he did see fit to boost Winnipeg South MP James Richardson up from the supply and services portfolio to defence. He has only three other cabi- net ministers from the West, Justice Minister Otto Lang from Saskatchewan and Urban Af- fairs Minister Ron Basford and Environment Minister Jack Davis, from British Columbia, All three ministers continue to hold the same portfolio, Al- though it had been rumored that Mr Lang might be switched over to agricul- ture.The Trudeau government failed to elect a single MP in Alberta, the Yukon, and the Northwest Territories. MESSAGE Despite this lack of represen- tation, caused at least in part by his own policies of the last four years, Mr. Trudeau has un. doubtedly heeded the messages given his government by the West and other predominately English-speaking parts of Can- ada on Oct. 30th. Jean-Pierre Goyer, until Mon- day solicitor-general, has been moved down to the relatively minor portfolio of supply and services, ft may bs remem- bered that a few months ago when Mr. Richardson held this portfolio he promised a more equitable sharing of govern- ment business among the West- ern and Maritime provinces. Until now, Quebec and Ontario sales companies have been gobbling up the lion's share of this department's billion a year spending splurge. It will be worth waiting to see if Mr. Goyer follows up with the Win- nipeg MP's proposal. NO TROUBLE New Democratic Party House leader Stanley Knowlcs, MP for Winnipeg North Centre, sug- gests that Mr. Goyer is now in a job where "he can't cause much Earlier this year the Quebec cabinet minis- ter infuriated Alberta with his plans to change the sips of the RCMP. Alberta MPs were get- ting letters and telegrams signed by thousands of persons protesting the action. Mr. Goyer also upset British Columbia. A child rapist, who Mr. Goyer de- scribed as "a man and a citizen of this country" after he was let out on parole, has since been charged with the murder of a eeven-year-old B.C. girl. He upset people when he suggest- ed that criminals were going to be boarded out with old age pensioners in that province as a trial run of a much more elalwrate scheme. Mr. obviously hasn't been getting much fan mail from the two far western provinces. Gerard Pelletier, bumped down from secretary of state to minister of communications, also caused Mr. Trudcau some embarrassment. It was Mr. Pel- letier who organized that Par- liament Hill Dominion Day cele- bration that turned out to be al- most totally in French. After that, he disappeared from the Commons chamber for days on end while infuriated MPs fumed over their inability to question him on the matter. OBVIOUS Also moved, although not so obviously down as the other two Quebec ministers, was Jean Marchand, now in transport. The former regional economic expansion minister, Mr. March- and handled the billion give- away program of industrial in- centive grants. Trouble was, some critics said Quebec was getting more than its fair share and other provinces, particu- larly British Columbia, just about nothing. There were also charges that grants were given away in Quebec and other prov- inces on a patronage basis, al- though no cone r e t e evidence was shown. Actually, Mr. Knowles for one isn't too happy about Mr. Marchand going to transport. While it might seem a rela- tively safe portfolio, the Winni- peg MP stresses the West's con- cern about transportation pol- icies. In particular, rail line abandonment and his pet sub- ject: The question of better pen- sions for old railroad men. Nevertheless, in appointing a Maritimer, former transport New embassy at Ottawa OTTAWA (CP) Canada has opened an embassy in Buda- pest, Hungary, the external af- fairs department announced to- day. The new embassy is headed by Ambasador M. H. Wershoff, who is also accredited to Czech- oslovakia and normally resides in Prague. In his absence from Buda- pest, the embassy will be di- rected by R. B. Edmonds, who holds the rank of counsellor. Opening of the new embassy reflects the growing range of economic and cultural relations between Canada and Hungary. minister Don Jamieson, to take over Mr. Marchand's old por- tfolio Mr. Trudeau appears to have made quite an intelligent assessment of the situation. Westerners and Maritimers share a lot of affection for each other: They both feel central Canada ignores them. QUIT One can suggest that in mov- ing Bryce Mackasey out ot manpower and move that caused' Mr. Mack- asey to quit the cabinet rather than take on another portfolio- Mr. TTudeau was capitulating to those Canadians who still be- lieve fervently in the work ethic. Those easy-to-get a month unemployment payments annoyed hard working West- erners and Ontario in general. Especially when Mr. Mackasey described what is likely to be- come a ?1 billion deficit in the unemployment insurance fund as "simply a drop in the bucket" of the taxpayers' money. Lackadaisical immigration policies, as administered by Mr. Mackasey's staff, also upset a lot of Canadians. The Con- servative House Leader Jed Baldwin, MP for Peace River, Alberta, charged for months that Criminal elements were funnelling illegal immigrants into Canada. An interesting point: Within days o[ Trudeau government's humili- ation at the polls Mr. Mackasey moved to do exactly what the Alberta MP had been urging.He tightened up regulations. Nixon to replace Laird with Secretary Richardson PRIME MINISTER TRUDEAU sworn in as MR Puzzle of Marc Lalonde, new- ly-elected Quebec MP and be- fore Oct. 30 Mr. Trudeau's chief behind the scenes advisor. He was given the liealth and wel- fare portfolio while John Mun- ro was moved to labor. Some say Mr. Trudeau had a puzzle with Mr. Lalonde. He had to try and give him a senior portfolio, yet Westerners are already sus- picious of Mr. Lalonde. The prime minister appears to have compromised. It can't really be said that many of the other changes are of too much immediate interest to Western Canadians. Eugene Whelan, an Ontario MP with wide interests and ex- perience in many areas of fanning, was given the agricul- ture portfolio. Bud Olson, the defeated Alberta MP had held that. Replacing Mr. Goyer as solic- itor-general, by the way, is Que- bec IIP Wan-en Allmand. Kis first comments in public were to the fact that he planned a quick visit to the West to mend a few fences. Apart from that, only time will tell what the new cabinet will mean to the West. 7Time, incidentally, that Con- s e r v a t ive leader Robert Stanfield is hoping to cut as short as possible.

(AP) 'resident Nixon announced Tuesday that Elliot Richardson will be nominated as the new defence secretary and Caspar Vcinberger, now director of the of Management and 3udget will be named to succeed Richardson as secrc- ary of liealth, education and velfare. At the same time, Nixon said Ash, president ot Litton In- dustries, will be nominated to succeed Weinberger as the cabi- net-level director of OMB. Melvin R. Laird has sub- nitted his resignation as de- 'ence secretary and plans to re- turn to private life after four years as chief of the Pentagon. The announcement ot the first changes in Nixon's second-term cabinet was read to reporters 3y press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler in a helicopter hangar at the presidential mountain re- treat here. Richardson, 52, has served as liealth secretary since June, 1970. Before that he was Nixon's undersecretary of state. Weinberger, 55, became OMB director in May but earlier had been deputy director of the agency since its creation in mid-1970. HEADS OWN CREATION Ash, 54, was chairman o! Nixon's advisory council on government reorganization created in 1969. The recommen- dations of that group called, among other things, for the creation of the Office of Man- agement and Budget which he now will head. Xiegler indicated that Rich- ardson, Weinberger and Ash would have little to say to re- porters because their nomi- nations are subject to con- firmation by the Senate. Ziegler indicated that Rich- nounce further cabinet changes Wednesday as part of his goal of revitalizing the admmis- tralion in his second four-year term as president. Also absent from the new cabinet will be George Komney, [ormorly the housing secrelary, who announced his resignation Monday. In an earner talk with report- ers, Nixon indicated that heads will roll In a massive shakeup of the government before he takes the oath of office Jan. 20. doctors are CINCINNATI (AP) The American Medical Association lias been urged to take strong action to protect the public against a "significant problem" of alcoholism, drug dependence and other psychiatric disorders among doctors. The Council of Mental Health of the AMA's board of trustees made the call Sunday to the AMA's policy-making house of delegates at the opening of the organization's 26th clinical con- vention. The group suggested that the number of such emotionalJy- sick doctors is relatively small, compared with the total number of doctors in the United States. But it said there Is consistent evidence that such problems ex- ist and that, occasionally, they jeopardize such doctors' ac- countability to the public. It added that one study has reported that estimates ot the incidence of narcotic addiction in physicians "varies from 30 to 100 times that in the general that such addiction is an occupa- tional hazard for physicians. The council urged the AMA to approve a series of graduated guidelines, short of disciplinary action, to get such sick doctors lo concede their problem, seek professional help and possibly curtail or suspend practice vol- untarily.
