Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, October LETHBRIDQE 'Canada should protect fisheries' B.C. teacher may give up 'discrimination9 fight VANCOUVER (CP) Federal Fisheries Minister Romeo LeBlanc said Tuesday that Canada would be irresponsible if it did not protect and continue develop- ing the country's fisheries. Mr. LeBlanc told a news conference here that harvests of the sea will be needed to meet the world's food re- quirements in decades to come. "If you look at this as poten- tial for animal protein and therefore for food in the years and decades to come, we would be very irresponsible as a nation if we did not protect it and develop it, not only for our own commercial use but for food requirements for the rest of the he said. Mr. LeBlanc said he will continue pushing for a 200- mile off shore fishing limit but warned that even this might not fully protect British Columbia's valuable salmon industry. "In addition to a 200 mile limit, we have to come to an international agreement whereby salmon will not be fished on the high he said. SPECIAL CASE "We have to convince other nations that salmon is a very special case. Many countries don't know the mechanisms by which salmon reproduce and roam the high seas." The minister said there will always be a conflict in B.C. between fisheries develop- ment and industrial growth Bennett says gov't dishonest on ICBC PENTICTON (CP) Social Credit leader Bill Bennett said Tuesday the provincial government has broken its commitment, that it would never finance the Insurance Corporation of British Colum- bia from general revenue. He said the 10-cent-a-gallon tax on gas, part of a million subsidy for ICBC, was designed to mislead people. "As a result the government is being dishonest and we will pay the highest gasoline prices in Western Canada to subsidize Mr. Bennett said. On Tuesday, Transport Minister Robert Strachan an- nounced that most B.C. motorists will pay less next year for coverage in the government's compulsory automobile insurance scheme. Drivers will be given dis- counts, varying according to six different territories in B.C., he said, except for Vic- toria which already has the lowest rates in the proviiice. He said the discount system is possible because increase revenue from natural resources and because of the government's policy of transferring money from gas- oline and diesel fuel taxes to ICBC- He estimated about million would be transferred from the treasury. Mr. Bennett said people should realize they "are pay- ing their Autoplan in three ways: the actual car in- surance premium, the driver 'certificate fee, and now the 10 cents a gallon tax ou gas." Record enrolment in B.C. universities VANCOUVER (CP) Enrolment at British Colom- bia's three public universities has reached record levels this year, statistics show. Preliminary figures from the University of B.C. show the daytime enrolment at 21.512. with some additions still expected in graduate studies, as well as some stu- dent withdrawals. But total enrolment is still expected to top the previous 1970-71 high of by the time the university does its of- ficial nose count in December. A spokesman said there have been increases in almost all faculties, the largest in education, which has a 17 per cent increase over last December's enrolment. and hinted that "trade offs" will be required. "I hope we win some of those matches because in the long run if we keep a river clean and keep generations after generations of fish, we'll enhance not only the lives of fishermen but the lives of all citizens of the province who can benefit." VANCOUVER (CP) A teacher who spent two weeks on the steps of the British Colum- bia legislature in June says dismissal of her charges that she has been discriminated against may make her give up her fight. Ingrid Blanchet, 53, said Tuesday she has been informed by letter that a private Van- couver school board review, which looked into her complaint that a former principal's critical report hurt her career, has dismissed the charges. The letter, by committee chairman Elliott Gose, said the committee could see no justification for her inference that comments by the principal had damaged her career. "Your interpretation of those comments and not the comments themselves, have led to your point of the letter said. Mrs. Blanchet, who also spent a week in July in a vigil at the Vancouver courthouse to bring public attention to her inability to get a teaching job in B.C. said the committee's decision had discouraged her. "I'm feeling really down about it. I'm ready to give the whole thing she said. Mrs. Blanchet says she has been unable to get a job in Vancouver despite applications to several schools after teaching during the 1973-74 school term in Prince Rupert, B.C. The report in dispute was written by Queen Victoria school principal Lee Hafft, who was then in her first year at the school. Mr. Gose said in an interview Saturday that the review was specifically into the prin- cipal's report and did not rule on Mrs. Blanchet's larger complaints that schools consider her overqualified. Mrs. Blanchet has said that current hiring practices dis- criminate against experienced and therefore higher She has a PC6 rating which credits her with six years of approved teachin exerience.
