Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta W.dntidoy, Odob.r 1970 lETHMIDOt HERAtO 11 Calgary Mayor Sykes Defends Rock Festival CALGARY (CP) Less trou- ble and damage was caused by a rock festival July 4-5 than during the last two Grey Cup games, Mayor Rod Sykes told a public inquiry Tuesday. "What you'read about the rock festival was iiai'dly ram- parable to what you saw. "I was told the incidence of persons needing medical help for drug problems was less than would be expected on any given weekend in some of the educa- tion institutions. "I saw a number of families with picnic baskets there were many well known pro- fessional people with their fam- ilies with wine in the baskets. "I know because many. of them offered ms some." The mayor was testifying be- fore Mr. Justice W. G. Morrow who is heading an inquiry into possible civic mismanagement during the last 10 years. The inquiry sat for seven days in September ami beard of thefts from the city, manage- to the thefts and the involvement of Aid. John Kushner in the removal of an apple tree from city property. It is now conc-jtrating on poli- tical interference in the execu- tion of police duties with most of the testimony on handling of the rock festival and operation of the Calgary police commis- sion. The mayor said he realized soon after, he was elected last October there was no trust be- tween police and city hall, and the situation had existed for some time. City hall issued no directives on how to police the rock fes- tival, the mayor said, as that a matter between the po- lice and the department of the attorney general. "I did on more than one oc- casion make it clear that I ex- pected them to do their jobs." Earlier, officials of the police department said they decided that to prevent a riot the use of liquor and drugs would be ignored during the festival. They said the policy was de- termined by city police and the RCMP with no direction from elected officials. The mayor said that before the festival, a noisy element of the community warned disaster lay ahead, but they gave no alternative. A display of force would have represented a lack of faith in the city force an expression of failure before the event. OPINIONS DIFFER 'Mayor Sykes said that during preparations for the festival, he detected a difference of opinion between senior officers of the police force. Chief M. J. Kent was taking a very moderate and responsible view, but some wanted to make a show of force. After the festival, conversa- tions with police officers indi- cated members of the force felt .the .festival had promoted un- derstanding between youths and police. The mayor said he hoped the feeling would continue. The inquiry, which covers the administrations of Harry Hays, now a senator, Grant MacEwan, now lieutenant governor of Al- berta, Jack Leslie and Mr. Sykes, is expected to last until the end1 of next week.
