Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, October 17, 1970 Canada Crisis Grips U.S. WASHINGTON (CP) - The crisis in Canada held attention fere Friday as Ottawa's decision to invoke the War Measures Act dominated newspaper front pages, sweeping several other major stories aside. Although the move announced by Prime Minister Trudeau was e major topic of conversation around town, official Washington predictably declined to comment publicly on the grounds it involved the internal affairs of a friendly country. Senator Mike Gravel (Dem. Alaska), a French-speaking native of Massachusetts, sent a telegram to Trudeau saying: "I hope for you that this hour of Courts May Censor Films CALGARY (CP) - Art Dixon, Social Credit MLA for Calgary South, says he supports the idea of a film classification system which would leave decisions of movie censorship up to the courts. Anti-Noise Plan Delayed EDMONTON (CP) - City council has delayed implementation of a noise abatement bylaw until the end of the year, but will proceed with an anti-noise education program in the meantime. The city's administration had recommended the bylaw become effective next Tuesday but council delayed it after being told proper enforcement is not available. "As long as a person can take his objections about a movie to the courts there is no need for the government or a censor to intervene," he said in an interview. Mr. Dixon, speaker of the legislature, says he feels censors have less film footage to cut because the courts in general are taking a more liberal approach to the definition of obscenity. Provincial Treasurer Anders Aalborg has said the government is considering legislation which would take censorship decisions away from the provin cial board and allow citizens to challenge film contents in the courts. agony becomes one of your finest for Quebec and all Canada." "Canada calls emergency," said the banner headline of The Evening Star, which also carried frontpage pictures of Trudeau heading for an emergency cabinet meeting and army troops outside Montreal's city hall. "Canada suspends civil liberties," said the tabloid Washington Daily News, adding in smaller print: "Trudeau sends troops to Montreal to crush 'free-Quebecers'." Stories demoted to lesser prominence included those on the first hijacking of a Soviet airliner, State Secretary William Rogers' visit to the United Nations, campaigning for the Nov. 3 United States congressional elections and the long- awaited grand jury report on the Kent State student killings last May. Although it was learned the U.S. has somewhat stepped up security surveillance of Canadian buildings here, both Canadian and U.S. officials were tightrlipped about the situation.

The premier held a news conference after a two-hour caucus of Conservative party members in the last House. Recounts in a number of eats could change the final standing.
