Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Separation No Solution Od.k.r JJ, THI LPHMIOOI HMA10 tl Thatcher: Ottawa Neglects West By CONWAY DALY REGINA (CP) Premier ROM Thatcher of Saskatche- wan there is an al- most univenal feeling of re- Motmtot in the Pram prov- ince! ever what many west- erner! regard as Ottawa's lack of Interest in their prob- lems. But sepsratioo would be no would be "little more than suicidal lunacy." Greater attention by the fed- eral government to the economic complaints would make much of the alienation talk evaporate, in Mr. Thatch- er's view. In an interview with The Canadian Press the 53-year- old Liberal premier voiced a prevailing Western Canada view that Ottawa is too preoc- cupied with Quebec problems at the expense of other re- gions. But this had no refer- ence to the current Quebec crisis which erupted after the premier talked with a CP re- porter. j DoUars-and-certs wheat sales, inflation, railway freight the ones stressed in the interview by the premier, who began his working life in the family hardware business. MOOD PERKED UP The blunt-spoken premier, In recent years a forthright voice for the West at federal- provincial conferences, gets restless when conversation turns to legal niceties of con- stitutional reform. He prefers to concentrate instead on the bread-and-butter questions that he feels should have priority. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Denial Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg.

His mood perked up on the last day. That was when the heads of government focused on the federal white paper on tax changes, provincial farm marketing regulations and western complaints about freight issues clow to the voter's pocketbook. Mr. Thatcher, whose gov- ernment has been ID office since 1964, has hinted at the possibility of general elec- tion in the near future al- though he is not required to call one before the fall of 1972.

Today he's able to walk along city streets, using a portable ox- ygen system. Emphysema, a disease of the lungs, had made breathing so difficult that Mr. Biggar, 62, had to retire as an investment broker two years ago. He had spent the last four winters in Arizona because his lungs were functioning at only 35 per cent of capacity. The oxygen walker equipment used by Mr. Biggar is a medical product of Union Carbide Can- ada Ltd. It consists of a tube worn across the face which shoots twin jets of oxygen into the nostrils. The oxygen supply is carried in an eight-pound shoulder pack which contains a three-hour supply of oxygen. Mr. Biggar pays a month rental for the for the portable unit and S32 for the refuelling tank. WORLD LEADER Canada leads the world fresh-water area. itridei have been made."

He Has been a bitter opponent of socialism ever since. WON'T WORK' "There is nothing wrong with socialism except that it won't work. Under the private enterprise system, Canada and the United States have the highest living standards in the higher than those which exist in most socialist countries. "The private enterprise sys- tem is far from perfect.
