Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 LETHBKIDGI HIKALO Frldpy, Octebir 30, 1978----------------------------------------_ Non Returnable Bottles Legislation Is Planned CA1XJARY (CP) The pro- vincial government hopes to Introduce legislation next year which will help solve the prob- lem of non-returnable bottles Highways Minister Gordon Taylor said Thursday. "The cost factor will be moved from the pockets of 'the people to those who decide to continue selling beverages non-returnable containers." Mr. Taylor told delegates to the 64th annual convention of the Alberta Urban Municipali- ties Association that the pro- posed legislation will involve a deposit principle and will be along the lines of similar Brit- ish Columbia legislation. B.C. is the only Canadian province which has attacked the problem through legisla- tion. It has a law requiring merchants to either exchange soft drink containers of less than 40 ounces for full ones with no extra charge for the container, or refund two cents for every container. Mr. Taylor was also critical of the fact that the manufac- turers have been passing the costs of handling non return- bottles on to the tax- payers. "The profits they get should be used to look after the costs of handling their products. "We hope our proposed leg' islation will go a long way to reducing the problem." The minister said Ontario may have discovered a solu- tion for the disposal of bottles by crushing them and mixing the glass with asphalt as a road-building material. In his speech, Mr. Taylor also said that planning and re- search must go hand-in-hand f urban traffic congestion is to be alleviated and the costs of rapid transportation reduced. He told delegates he is seek- ng federal funds for an urban ransportation study in Al- research and the provincial government is anxious to ob- tain at least a portion of it. "The study could take place in Calgary, or Edmonton, or I'm not particular. jertV to establish "a possible saltern for other Canadian ities.

Trudeau Faced Jail In 1960 WINNIPEG (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau would have been one of the first people jailed had the federal govern- ment invoked the War Mea- sures Act because of "a state of apprehended insurrection' against the government of for- mer Quebec premier Maurice Duplessis, a Manitoba MLA said Thursday. Cy Gonick, the controversial New Democratic Party mem- ber for the Winnipeg Tiding of Crescentwood made the com- ment during a debate on the War Measures Act. Mr. Gonick was apparently referring to the long opposition voiced by Mr. Trudeau against the Union Nationale govern- ment which ruled Quebec until I960. The debate was the result of challenge from William Nbr- rie, a Winnipeg school board trustee, after Mr. Gonick took part in a demonstration against the measures several weeks ago. Arnold Frutkin, assistant ad- ministrator for international af- fairs at the National Aeronaut- ics and Space. Administration, said Thursday the agreement was signed a day earlier in' Moscow. Frutkin said the text will not be made public, as a matter of courtesy, until here has been an exchange of letters between M. V. Keldysh, president of the of Sciences, Low, acting NASA administrator. Frutkin, who recently Soviet Academy and Dr. George re- turned from the Moscow confer- ence, said Soviet space engi- neers indicated they plan to de- sign a tunnel exit like that in American spacecraft. The change would allow spacecraft of the two nations to dock in orbit. He said the Russians cur- are not using an interior :unnel. The American Apollo las a tunnel to transfer men 'rom the command and service module to module. Frutkin said Soviet conferees showed serious concern over the development of an ability to res- cue men in the event of space- iraft emergencies. "We respect that concern and hare he said. both The important thing is that there hasn't been any really comprehensive research in Can- ada on rapid transit." By 1980, he said, it is esti- mated that 80 per cent of population will be urban-orient- ed and money must be moved from rural to urban transport- ation systems in order to ac- commodate the greater num- ber of people. "It is also desireable to transport high volumes of peo- ple quickly and cheaply but It will be necessary to advise Al- berta's two major cities that rapid transit is too rich for the Wood of the provincial govern- ment." AMBULANCE SERVICE Meanwhile, five communities won support to send a petition to the provincial government asking that coverage for am- bulance service become a man- datory part of Alberta's medi- cal care scheme. A joint resolution submitted by Sundre, Olds, Didsbury, Carstairs and Bowden express- ed opposition to the optional ambulance coverage offered by the Alberta Health Care Insur- ance Commission. They said there is evidence that ambulance operators are unable to collect a large per- centage of their bills, and as a result many private operators show financial losses, forcing them to return to municipali- ties for grants. In other resolutions the eon- Welfare Meet May Be Delayed vention called on the provin- cial government to introduce legislation to: 'Make an outright capital expenditure grant for land ac- quisition and initial design work for sanitary landfills. through amend- ments to the Municipal Gov- ernment Act, the sale of fire- works. the lunar landing HALE 307 6th St. OPTICAL COMPANY ITD.

Parents May Take On Jobs In School Caretakers Strike EDMONTON (CP) -Parents will take on the jobs of striking caretakers and maintenance workers in 10 schools Monday if the contract dispute that closed the city's 150 jublic schools eight days ago is not resolved. The Edmonton public school board has set noon Saturday as a deadline for the mainte- nance and caretakers to accept its final offer, which the board says, provides an 18.5-per-cent wage increase over two years. At a negotiating meeting Thursday, the first since the strike began Oct. 22, the board repeated the offer it made on the first day of the strike.

Waiting Period In Store For Self-Employed On UI OTTAWA (CP) Self-em- ployed workers-taxi-drivers, barbers, numerous tradesmen and professional have to do without unemploy- ment insurance until the art of unemployment insurance ad- ministration has been refined. This was the explanation of- fered the Commons labor com- mittee Thursday by Jacques DesRoches, chief of the unem- ployment insurance c o m m i s- sion, as the reason why the self-employed will not be cov- ered under a revised scheme. "It's a question of being able to identify when a self-employed person is unemployed for rea- sons beyond his Mr. DesHoches said. "The state of the (administra-. five) art may come to that point not yet." Mr. D e s R o c H e s said that while working on the white paper on unemployment insur- ance revision, the commission had been able to find1 only two examples of coverage for self- employed workers and both were severely limited. The schemes were those of Califor- nia and the United Kingdom. Coverage for seltemployed workers began in Canada for fishermen in 1957 under a spe- cial arrangement which is to be dropped when a suitable alter- native can be devised. cused the board of arrogance and called the repeated offer an insult. Meanwhile, public chil- dren are getting behind in their work, and the board has adver- tised for volunteers to help re- open the schools. CAN OPEN 10 s There now are enough volun-- teers to open 10 schools Mon- day, George Nicholson, school board asssitant superintendent, said Thursday. Mostly elemen- tary schools will be reopened. More problems 'are antici- pated in the opening of high schools, he said, and there are fears that some students might Je a kind of guerrilla war- fare, damaging fixtures and lit- tering hallways. The board and the union have agreed to 300 women caretakers being given a 21 per cent wage increase. This provides for a 20-cent increase to an hour retroactive to Jan. 1, 1970 and an additional 15-cent in- crease retroactive to Sept. 1, 1970. The 500 men, under the board's offer would get an in- crease of in a contract to expire Dec. 31, 1971, bringing annual average earnings to Head caretakers would earn between and the board said.

The delay would also allow the federal government to com plcte discussions with the prov inces about criticisms from the National Council of Welfare. The council has demanded an investigation of provincial wel fare programs and action against those provinces found to have broken their pledges under Canada Assistance Plan agree- ments with Ottawa. Federal Welfare Minister John Munro has suggested to provincial officials that their meeting, scheduled for here in late November, be postponed until some time in January. NEEDS TIME He said in an Interview that a postponement would give him more time for private discus- sions with the provincial minis- ters and let federal welfare offi- cers complete talks with their provincial counterparts. The National Council of Wel- fare, a federal advisory agency founded last January and com- posed partly of welfare recipi- ents, has said the provinces ap- pear to be trying to exclude cer- tain categories of welfare appli- cants, such as unemployed men under age 30, from receiving welfare, in violation of agree- ments with Ottawa. Mr. Munro said this and other matters will be dealt with by the time the welfare minis- ters assemble., Meanwhile, one source said B PMK PLAZA IS rt MOTOR HOTEL AND RESTAURANT (LICENSED) 0 rt D o For the Prospective Bride and Groom WATCH AND CLIP THIS ADVERTISEMENT EACH FRIDAY FOR HINTS ON -Mow Uo Plan The Wedding Day At church, how are the families seated?

Government Responsible For Situation EDMONTON (CP) The provincial government is re- sponsible for the situation which has rssulted in public school children being kept out of school in Edmonton, Lou Hyndman, the Progressive Conservative education critic, said today. Mr. Hyndman, member of the legislature for Edmonton West said in a news releass the Social Credit government put a "financial straight-jack- et" on school boards six months ago when it limited budgets to a maximum six-per- cent increase. "The government's ill con siderad action left the Edmon- ton Public School Board with- out sufficient resources, with no financial manoeuvring room and unable to effectively set priorities." Mr. Hyndman said there must be reasonable control of spiralling education costs but the government "in this case used a bludgeon where a scal- pel would do and Edmonton parents and children are the losers." N.S. Fishermen Return To Boats HALIFAX (CP) The bitter strike of eastern Nova Scotia fishermen against two fish com- panies has ended, the Nova Sco- tia labor department said today. Fishing trawlers are expected to start moving out of the three affected ports within 24 hours, for the first time since the strike began in late March. Announcement of agreements between fishermen's commit- tees and the two fish companies was mads by labor department that the postponement ttso Is being proposed so that a Jan, 8 poor people's conference in To- ronto will give welfare recipi- ents a chance to make their voice heard.

Federal Court Okayed OTTAWA (CP) A govern- ment bill establishing the Fed- eral Court of Canada Was given third and final reading in the Commons Thursday, the first major piece of legislation to be approved since Parliament began its new session Oct. 8. Justice Minister John Turner, who piloted the bill, had his hand shaken and his shoulders patted by fellow cabinet minis- ters as though he bad scored ;he winning goal in a hockey game. Opposition members chose Dot :o make any speeches at the ;hird-reading stage. Conserva- tive House Leader Gerald Bald- win said his party wanted to see 'if the government has any el- ective to put be- "ore the Commons. Approval came after several votes on opposition amendments o the Federal Court bill were voted down by government sup- porters. In the debate on the report stage, Mr. Turner took issue with opposition claims that the federal government is moving into, provincial legal jurisdic- tions by setting up the new court. Mr. Turner said the Federal Court's jurisdiction would differ little from that of the Ex- chequer Court which it -will re- place. The main difference was that it would hanc appeals and re- views of decisions made by fed- eral boards and tribunals.
