Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta It's hard to type new Sask. premier REGINA (CP) It's hard lo type the new premier of Saskatchewan. Me is mild-mannered unless locked in debate, dedicated to N w Democratic Party princi- ples but not radically so, and he has a definite ambition to use government in the best in- terests of the common man. But being all of those things, Allan Gmrys Blakcney doesn't project a striking image, unless it is one of sta- bility and respect. Tiie 45-year-old Nova Sco- tia-born labor lawyer, who has an amusing habit of chuc- kling boyishly at his own jokes, has been in office about BEN-GURION HONORED Israel's Premier Golda Meir walches as elder statesman David Ben-Gurion opens book of secret minutes of Israel's labor party. The book was presented to the first prime minister of Israel during a labor parly meeting to honor his 85th birthday. 111 ponce act EDMONTON (CP) Alberta will have to live with its new police act a year or more be- fore it is changed, says Attor- ney-General Merrill Leitch. The new Conservative min- ister said in an interview that his department needs time to review the act, introduced dur- ing the last session of the leg- islature under the Social Credit government, which was defeat- ed in the Aug. 30 provincial election. Mr. Leitch also said he be- lieves organized crime "is poised to enter" Alberta anc lie sees keeping it out of the province as "a high priority item." The police act, which muni- cipalities complain takes away much of their autonomy over policing, is bound to be chang- ed, he said. But he can't say when the changes will be "be- cause I can't tell you whether we will be able to do the kind of review I have in mind and introduce something in the first legislature." Premier Peter Lougheed has indicated the first sitting will not come until spring 1972. three months after his parly scored a stunning election vie- too1 over the Liberals last Juno months have been as eventful as any in .Saskatche- wan's; history as the New Democrats sell led into gov- ernment after seven years in opposition: multi-million-dollar pulp mill deal was torn up, an iron-mine development is up for -enegoliation, some con- troversial pieces of Liberal legislation were quickly re- pealed at a special summer session of the legislature, a major farm hill was passed which gives needy farmers a year's holiday from payments on certain debts, and one of the province's major indus- as been warned that the government changes which could have far-reaching effects. "I felt the previous govern- ment depended too much on th excisions of the said Mr. Blakeney who rose to Saskatchewan's highest office just 11 years after entering the legislature. The member for Rcgina Centre, who came to Saskat- chewan in 1S5C to become sec- retary and legal adviser to Crown corporations, has his own views on how government shoif 1 operate. "Thy government which I see us operating is one whereby there will he a num- ber of influential cabinet min- isters. "1 don't mean to suggest that any of them will not be influential, but that it will be a government where the deci- sion-making will be diffused over a number of people." Then is also the possibility of in'.cr-provincial programs because, for the first time in Canadian history, side-by-side provinces are being run by New Democrats. Mr. Blakeney foresees a number of areas of possible co-operation with Manitoba: BOTTOM OF LADDER "Programs ot agriculiure, research in a general way, possibly even a jointly-admin- istered crop insurance plan, a common program for agricul- tural maclu'nery testing, co- operation between power utili- tries, promotion of farm ma- chinery manufacturing, the list is pretty well endless." Problems of people in the low-income brackets motivate Mr. Blakeney. "1 would like to think that we can free I he lot of those who are on the bottom of the social and economic ladder by improving health programs, education pro- grams and provide opportuni- ties for educational advance- ment. "We want to give people of Saskatchewan greater control over the decisions which influ- ence their lives and this will mean, among other things, opening up the government and providing greater public ownership and control of those power centres Thich make those decisions. "I think it likely there will be. some new Crown corpora- tions because we want to use that device because it is a way people can have greater control over their lives." CHANGED VIEWS Mr. B la k e n e y, who had early Conservative convic- tions picked up from his fathr1', changed his views dur- ing h.- second year of univer- sity. "I became convinced some changes were needed and I became, I suppose, intellec- tually convinced (lie CCF of- fered the best alternatives." He was interested in Labor party politics in England while attending Oxford on a Rhodes scholarship and after articling in law in Nova Sco- tia, he eventually moved to CCF Saskatchewan "because I was interested in it from a political point of view." "My intentions were not to stay here I thought I would work for a couple of years and then go somewhere else, probably to Alberta or British Columbia to practise law and probably be active in politics. "But, I found the job very exciting, very interesting. We were breaking new ground in operating public corporations and using them to meet par- ticular social challenges." NOT SOCIALIST Mr. Blakeney. like Premier Ed Schreyer of Manitoba, dis- likes the tag "socialist" and prefers to call himself a dem- ocratic socialist. CARPET end UNO (Complete Instaltotionsl) Free Estimatesi No Obligation! PHONE 327-8578 CAPITOL FURNITURE 'The carpet House of the South' "f democratic socialist is a person who believes in a sub- stanti 1 role for government in organizing the public af- fairs of the province or the country, but who has a belief in the democratic process. "Basically, if you believe in the democratic process, then I his means that you must mo- dify your particular theories rf socialism. "II may well be that in your judgment, a particular solu- tion LO a social problem is the best one from an intellectual point of view. If however, it is unacceptable to the majority of tl.e people, or a substantial block of people, then it's the wrong solution." Mr. Blakeney says this form of government "makes a heck of a lot of sense" in an Industrial society which has advanced past the first ev- ery-man-for-himself stage. As the Canadian society gets older, as industry forms cartels and impinges on the environment "we need some- thing which counterpoises pri- vate economic power and we art going lo use public gov- ernmental power."

JOHN GERtA, Returning Officer Governors live well in NEW DELHI (Renter) While India is moving towards final abolition of (he old princely order some extrava- gant vestiges of Ihe days of British rule remain in the style of living of the stale governors. Housed in sumptuous man- sions, surrounded hy servants and aides, and fleets of cars at their disposal, they are regarded hy many as an anach- ronism in is supposed to be a socialist society. There ore 17 slate governors in all, and although precise fig- ures are not always availahle, it probably costs an average of about a year to main- tain each of them. The f late govern m e n t of Tamil Nadu suggested recently that the governor should move from tiie 237-acre raj bhavan (governor's house) he at present occupies, tn a more modest, r e s i d en e e. Hut Ihe change lias been delayed while the central government in New Delhi works out a uniform pol- icy for all governors. The Illustrated Weekly of India, a magazine, questioned the expense of maintaining the governors in "feudal splendor." "The average Indian has an income of 525 rupees per it pointed out.
