WednMday, October 1i74 THE LETHBRIDQC HERALD 17 Equal status legislation reintroduced justice department Indians occupying an unused federal building in Ottawa announced Tuesday at a news conference the creation of a "justice department" to compile a report on injustices suffered by Canadian Indians. Seated from left to right are: Louis Cameron, Caravan spokesman, and Doug Durham, American Indian Movement chief of staff. OTTAWA (CP) A bill amending eight statutes, the first of a series of changes to give men and women equal status under federal law, was reintroduced in the Commons Tuesday by Health Minister Marc Lalonde. Originally introduced last May, the bill died on the order paper when Parliament was dissolved for the July 8 elec- tion. Mr. Lalonde, minister responsible for women's status, said Canada Pension Plan amendments and a new Citizenship Act; removing other inequalities based on sex, also will be introduced before the end of the week. The CPP amendments also died with the last Parliament. The new Citizenship Act was promised during the last Parliament and announced again in the throne speech Sept. 30. Other measures tied in with the over-all program to im- prove the status of women include, human rights amendments and Criminal Code amendments to protect victims of rape, from un- warranted character attacks when they testify in court. Both are planned later in the current session of Parliament. The Criminal Code would also be changed in the bill in- troduced Tuesday by remov- ing some of the privileges available to wives but not to husbands. Besides the Criminal Code, the bill would amend the Can- ada Elections Act, the Immi- gration Act, the Public Ser- vice Employment Act, the Pension Act, the Civilian War Pensions Allowances Act, the Unemployment Insurance Act and the National Defence Act. The amendment to the Can- ada Elections Act eliminates marital-status references in electoral lists and, instead, notes simply the sex of each elector. Previously, women had to specify whether they were "Miss" or "Mrs." on the elec- toral lists. The amendments alo substi- tute the word "spouse" for "wife" in references in the act. Proposed changes to the Criminal Code would repeal protections now granted to a married woman-when she aids her husband or his ac- complices to escape after a crime is committed. Another amendment would extend to wives the obligation to provide necessities of life of her husband. Immigration Act changes in the bill would eliminate the words "head of the family" and make clear that a family includes those persons depen- dent on either the father or mother for support. The Public Service Employ- ment Act would be amended to forbid discrimination on grounds of marital status and age in the application of selec- tion standards. The Pension Act would be amended to make clear that men and women in the armed forces receive equal treatment. Changes to the National De- fence Act will allow girls to join cadet organizations previously restricted to boys. Barns Sbinrock Ready to Swvi HAMS Whole, half or quarter. Lb.
