Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Foreigners unwelcome on B.C. Crown land VICTORIA (CP) Resources Minister Bob Williams has announced a new set of regulations for leasing and licensing of Crown land in British Columbia. He told a news conference that effective last Friday: of leases or licences of crown lands will be limited to Canadian citizens or landed immigrants; of existing leases of licences of crown land will be limited to Cana- dian citizens or landed im- migrants; Existing leases or licences to non-Canadians in- cluding right or renewal for a specific term will be honored provided- performance re- quirements are met; leases or licences held by non-Canadians and tied to a viable ranch or with improvements on them will be renewed on a short-term basis at the discretion of the provin- cial director of lands; of leases or licences to corporations will be subject to sections of the companies act which state that the majority of directors shall be Canadian residents and one director shall be a B.C. resident. Mr. Williams said there is a very definite feeling amongst people in the province" that "crown lands should not be alienated to non-citizens.1' The minister said 93 per cent of land in the province is crown land. Auto surplus threatened OTTAWA Canadian United States Auto Trade rose more than 25 per cent the first six months of this year, but this country got the smaller share of the gain in the rapidly expanding market, Statistics Canada has reported. Both countries had total ex- ports and imports of about billion each for an billion total. This was a billion rise over the first half of last year, but Canada's million gain in sales to the U.S. was smaller than its million increase in American imports, the report said. The auto deficit, if con- tinued through 1973, would end four straight years of sur- pluses for this country in the U.S. auto trade. Feed grain policy blasted PANGMAN, Sask. (CP) Saskatchewan Premier Allan Blakeney, speaking to a local constituency meeting Satur- day night, criticized Justice Minister Otto Lang's recent attempts to sell his feed grains program to farmers. Mr. Lang defended the pro- gram on a speaking tour two weeks ago. "The Liberal party is once again trying to disrupt and confuse feed grain producers and livestock producers so that eastern farmers and eastern consumers will main- tain their traditional advan- tage over Mr. Blakeney said. "The Liberals say they sup- port the wheat board, yet they have set up a brand new agency to compete with and undermine the wheat board. "The only result will be to give eastern meat producers an artificial advantage and to threaten the principle of orderly marketing which western farmers have fought for so long to establish." Mr. Blakeney said the Sas- katchewan government is pre- pared to disband its feed grains marketing com- up to counter the federal agricultural products soon as federal representatives agree to "abandon their one-sided at- tempt to force their eastern policy on us and sit down with the western provinces and the farmers and work out a policy based on the principle of orderly marketing which will be fair to all Canadians." Excerpts from his remarks were given to the press before delivery. Catch anyone Monday, October 15, 1973 THE LETH0RIDGE HERALD 9 RIOTING SPARKS WAGE INCREASES New York Times Service JOHANNESBURG, South Africa As a result of the recent gold-mine rioting, in which 11 black workers were killed by the police, large wage increases are being planned for black miners. But many liberal South African critics of the way the situa- tion is being handled feel that if there are lessons to be drawn from the tragedy for this white-ruled country, they are either being ignored or misunderstood. In the aftermath of the rioting, the government of Prime Minister John Vorster has reiterated its opposition to the emergence of viable black trade unions, which the critics regard as the key to industrial peace. Because of the shootings at Carltonville, Anglo American, the giant of the gold industry, plans to give a second wage increase to black workers before the end of the year.
