Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LffHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Oerobor 24, 1970 Shock Effect, Leaves Quebeccrs Limp The Story Of Terror At Work By WILLIAM STEWART MONTREAL shock effect of the kidnapping of James R. Cross and the killing, after kidnapping, of Pierre La- porte has scarcely left it possi- ble for Quebeccrs to understand the stakes involved in the terror at work. With support from the Quebec government, Montreal authori- ties asked the Canadian govern- ment last week for emergency measures to deal with a situa- tion of "apprehended insurrec- tion." The drastic War Measures' Act, following civil use o armed forces, was quickly in voked. To the population at large am to many of the leaders in thi Quebec community events out paced the possibility of assess ment. A welter of statements, news broadcasts and headlines plus widespread police action am the sudden arrival on the scene of Canadian soldiers made it difficult to judge the various happenings. No doubt most Qucbecers, sfartled and horrified by the Kinqlana, tfereaitk o I INSURANCE IS JUST NOT PART OF OUR BUSINESS -IT IS OUR ONLY BUSINESS Phone 327-3009 CONN VAN HORNE JACK WARBURTON 507A 7th STREET SOUTH kidnap of Mr. Crass and tl strangling of the Quebec labo minister, now expect the author ities will maintain order. The particular nature of cur rent terrorism and its timin, after a brief bomb-free spell a city subject to waves of dyna raiting since 1963, came into a odd focus in the last few hours Jean Marchand, an importan federal cabinet minister froi Quebec, said in a broadcast tha the liming of the the first of their kind in tl' a prelude t intended disturbance of Mdn real municipal elections nex Sunday. He mentioned the idea of "ex plosions of all kinds" and "fur ther kidnappings or even shoo' ing people." While reinforce- ment of police by the armec forces seems to have such actions, the disarray they would have caused is evident. ELECTION KEY FACTOR? If the information given bj Mr.- Marchand is correct, the Montreal city election seems tc lave been a key factor in the mind of the terrorist Front de Alberta's Great Moments East meets West A lively siory!

FRAP is contesting 31 of 46 va- cant city council seats. Alto- gether there are 52. FRAP stands for Front d'Action Poli- tique. It also is an abbreviation for the French word Hit; is a new worker- based organization. It has en- dorsed FLQ aims of social re- form while condemning the lat- est variety of FLQ terror. Some fear it might unwittingly serve undisclosed F L Q intentions. FRAP denies it. paralysis of Montreal occurring due to violence on the city's election ex- pected now because of emer- gency a confusing election result would have se- vere consequences. The city with its population of more than two million is the economic motor of Quebec and a vital Ca- nadian transportation, business and industrial centre. present city manage- ment seems vulnerable because in an age of movements seeking an opening up of government it looks single-handed in its direc- tion. PROVINCE CAN ADJUST The. provincial government, for example, .functions differ ently and has demonstrated that under less hectic lead- ership can be quickly adjusted. Since 1959, three Quebec pre- miers have died with sudden- ness while in office and have been replaced easily by cabinet members having the advantage of familiarity and public confi- dence. There is no way of knowing yet the size of the FLQ follow- ing or the number of its mem- bers prepared to go to the lengths of kidnapping, lolling or even dynamiting. It is not known either whether the present goal in FLQ minds is action designed to weaken confi- dence in authority or power to govern. Dr. Gustave Morf, a psychia- trist who has studied the cases of terrorists in prison, says their goal is a "fraternal soci- ety" but they have practically no idea ''how it would work." Wiage Boost For Drillers CALGARY (CP) The Ca- ladian 'Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors have ap- proved wage increases for about 300 men in the industry. A recommendation by the issociation will boost wages rom 20 to 40 cents an hour, an verage increase of 8.2 per -ent, starting Nov. 1. The following hourly wage ates were adopted: for rillers, for derrickmen, >3.50 for motonnen and or floorhands. The increase, mainly involv- ng drillers, is the first for the industry in two years.
