The Committee To Savft Ses- ame Street plans to encourage a boycott of all products ad- vertised on CJOC-TV and its sister station in Calgary CFAC. Don II a r k c r, committee chairman, said a record be kept of all products adver- tised on the stations and lists will sent to anyone ask- ing for them. PRESSURE He said the aim Is to get people who want Sesame back to refuse to purcliase any products advertised, thereby forcing the station to reconsider its decision program. Mr. Harker, a lallicr of three, said the television station's move is based solely on economics and liis committee plans o continue the tjoycolt until .he station finds it "economically feasible" to carry the program. C.VJOC-TV decided against carrying Sesame Street because Canadian Radio Television Commission regulations would make it economically arc interested in seeing how fast Sesame Street will become economically said Mr. Harker. "Local broadcasters think the issue Ls closed. We want lo tell them that it i.5 not." Mr. Harker said broadcasters should be responsible to provide the public with the type of programming it desires.

Environment Minister Bill Yurko was quoted as confirm- ing Mr. Yanchula's accusations as serious. In June, Andy Russell, cur- rently the Liberal candidate for Lethbridge constituency lor the Ocl. 30 federal election, said it was time to look at more than fast operation and quick profits as prime industrial mo- lives. Industry must also study the effects on those around Jt to be truly fair, he said.

Proof of loss wanted A Lelhbridge woman who petitioned the CRTC to change its stand, says CJOC-TV should be asked to declare its profits and lo prove that the station would lose money if the pro- gram were carried. Mrs. Audrey M. Russell said she was "shocked" at the de- cision by CJOC to drop the pro- gram. "I have come to the con- clusion that CJOC Is no longer showing Sesame Street in order to increase its profits from commercials during the 11 a.m. to 12 noon she said. "I feel the manager of CJOC should be forced to declare his and prove that the show- ing of Sesame Street ihis year will cause clinc. his profits to de- Station blames CRTC decision All four federal candidates in the Lclhliriuge riding were unanimous that Sesame Street, should be put back on the air by CJOC-TV Lefhbridge. They said enough "public pressure'1 in Hie form of tele- phone calls and letters could 1 get the program back on the air. CJOC dropped the show this all apparently because (he tation is not allowed lo sell advertising with the program. Keith Hancock, Social Credit, said "Sesame Street is a tre- mendous program. A couple of our youngsters grew up with it. They learned their ABC's with .hat program in a way that other programs just can't do." Mrs, HancocX said she and a number of friends wrote to Ihe Canadian Radio Television Commission earlier this year protesting (lie removal of Sesame Street. Hal Hoffman, New Demo- crat, said he had a letter from Peter Francis, broadcast pro- grgam officer with the CUTC, which said (here is nothing Ihe CRTC can do about stations that decide to drop Ihe pro- gram. have a three year olr daughter who has learned a terrific amount about t h e alphabet, numbers and geome- Irical figures from Sesame Street" said Mr. Hoffman. 'As educator and a par- ent I feel that CJOC has a scr. to the community to con- tinue the program." Ken Hurlburt, Ihe Conserva- tive candidate, said "I'm not familiar with Sesame Street but I understand it's one of the most educational programs on .ele vision."

They are pol- ice officers from Edmonton, Calgary, Medicine Hat and RCMP officers of the Lclhhridge subdivision, and personnel of local government agencies. The Canadian Radio Televi-1 sion Commission's decision to classify Sesame Street as for- eign content has caused the present problem, says Bob Johnson, program manager at CJOC-TV. Mr. Johnson said, in a letter to The Herald, that if his sta- tion carried Ihe program, it would be forced to drop five hours per week of foreign con- tent programming Inat does produce revenue.
