Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 23, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THI lirMMBM HWAIB Friday, Odebcr M, No Changes In Auction Of Cattle OTTAWA (OP) Agricul- ture Minister H. A. Olson told I he Commons today lie believes that a new beet-grading system will not include changes in Ihe method of selling cattle by auc- tion. He was answering Richard R. Southam (PC Qu'appelle- Moose who said the pending changes "appear to in- 1 dicate a much greater propor- tion of rail grading." Mr. Southam asked what con- sideration is being given to pro- ducers selling cattle in auc- tions. Mr. Olson said plans for the new grading system are still being "worked out" with the Canadian Federation of Agri- culture, the Canadian Cattle- men's Association and other groups. "I think that much more work will have to be done be- fore even that agreement be- comes Mr. Olson said. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Denial Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bid's. PHONE 328-7684M ACTIONABLE STORY, QUESTIONABLE IAW TNVOKING last week of the War Measures Act by the federal government raises the centuries old problem of state censorship of the press. Most pertinent to southern Al- berta has been the University of Lethbridge student newspa- per, The Meliorist, and its pub- lication of material by the ban- ned Front de Liberation du Que- bec. In non democratic states, the government takes as one of its central prerogatives, control over the media. Democracy is predicated on freedom of the press, in both its printed, and broadcast forms. The philosophy behind this is that electors should have avail- able all sides of an issue in order to come to their own con- clusion. However, as John Stuart Mill said, the only reason people are justified in interfering "with the liberty of action of any of their number, is self protection." The War Measures Act was invoked by Ottawa against the FLQ, responsible for the grisly kidnapping murder of Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte and the kidnapping of British diplomat James Cross. The act has been used in both world wars (when, unlike now, 'The People's Laws' The Lethbridge Herald in co-operation with the Lethbridge Bar Association PRESENTS A PUBLIC LEGAL FORUM Yates Memorial Centre TUESDAY, NOV. 3rd at 8 p.m. The Lefhbridge Herald is privileged to join with the Lethbridge Bar Association in presenting a panel of Lethbridge Lawyers in a discussion and explanation of principles of law as they apply to situations commonly encountered in everyday life. Five panel members will each deal with a particular aspect of the law. The mod- erator will be Judge Frank H. Quigly, Judge of the District Court of Southern Alberta, and the chairman will be R. A. Jacobson, President of the Lethbridge Bar Association. Panel members ore W. E. Huckvale (Commercial F. M, Pritehard R. A. Jacobson H. S. Prowsa (Domestic Relations) and C.

Brought Into being In 1914 against "war invasion or insur- the act hits the press before any other segment of so- ciety. Th> act, showing its age, reg- ulates "censorship and the con- trol and suppression" of writ- ten material, but doesn't speci- fically meat ion broadcasting. TV and radio come under "com- munications and means of com- munications." This government stranglehold is particularly irritating to the media which revel in what they like to think is their complete freedom. But in point of fact, "freedom of the press" is about as real peanuts. Aside from the more insidious influences of advertisers, own- er pu'Jisher prejudice, gov- ernment silence and public pres- sure, the press labors under rules set by elected representa- tives. Laws against libel, untruths, obscenity and contempt of court d e v i s e d by Parliament, and newspapers and broadcast- ers seem content to work with them. The War Measures Act has been passed by Parliament, and burdensome and heavy hand- ed as it may be, the press must act as good corporate citizens. .Hence the flouting of the law by The Meliorist, with its distri- bution this and last week of the FLQ manifesto was pretty ju- venile stuff. Students are lucky that pro- vincial Attorney General Ed- gar Oerhart is not a letter-of- the-law man, or action would have been taken last Friday. Dragging up of that old red herring, "the freedom of the as if that covers illegal actions, is so much bla- ther. The University of Leth- bridge has no more freedom under law than does the com- munity of Lethbridge. But if The Meliorist can be chastized for breaking the law, the basic morality of the pub- lishing is harder to attack. The War Measures Act is far too repressive for Hie situation. One doubts if release of the manifesto would make anyone in southern Alberta side with the FLQ who did not already lean in that direction. Suppression of the document itself can give rise to more re- spect and fear of the material than it warrants. Aside from the all encom- passing press suppression, the government now has full control of production and manufacture, private property, ports and ves- sels, all transportation, and the right of detention, arrest, exclu- sion and deportation. At a time when public respect for police is in the decline, the act could spell the further dis- solution of public police trust. The act is far too broad for opposition of a group of radi- cals who have no deep nation- wide backing. What one looks to now from The Meliorist is some cracking good jabs at the act, the kind of jabs "establishment" newspa- pers so often muffle in Cana- dian Press sleenglish (That's English which induces Also needed is a background- er on separatism in Quebec a subject radio, TV and newspa- pers have thus far backed away from. Quebec history in The Melior- ist's own in i m i t a b 1 e writing style (four- and five letter words interspersed with refer- ences to human anatomy) would make for some interesting read- ing: leftist, hopelessly vulgar, but never stuffy.

Bennett said here he is lifting economic re- straints to create more jobs this winter and usher British Columbia into a new decade of progress and prosperity. He said funds accumulated by means of tight controls on provincial spending during the summer would be released in the next few months to provide "great works, great jobs."
