Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIOCE HERALD Saturday, October 30, 1971--------- It Union leaders seek Canadian autonomy Kt By HAUGENEDER Staff Writer It's time Canadian trade unionists set their own policy guidelines, say Alberta Provin- cial Council of Carpenters lead- ers.

Albciia carpenter unions, in endorsing a B.C. Council of Carpenters brief on Canadian labor autonomy to be submit- ted to the CLC urged the con- gress to "do all in its power to assist the affiliated unions in the attainment of these objec- tives." The fact that Canadian labor autonomy keeps coming up re- peatedly among a broad sec- tion of the national labor move- ment clearly shows that Cana- dr H do not have the same rights as their counterparts in the United States' the delegates stated. cursory examination of (be issue shows that the desire for 'Canadian Autonomy' runs deep among the 70 per cent of Canadian trade unionists who belong to international unions." Canadian trade unionists w h o are members of international unions find them- selves rs a small segment of much larger organizations whose policies are decided by the influences of another na- tion, Alberta Carpenter leaders s c 'The matter of Canadian autonomy is long overdue for thorough consideration. 'The overwhelming majori'tv of Canadian trade unionists do not want breakaways, but do want the Canadian sections of their organizations to handle their own, specifically Cana- dian problems." Support for Canadian auton- omy and concern regarding the I influences from another coun-j try on an important section of; modern society, comes not only from Ibe strong undercurrent among trade unionists but also from diverse sections of our so- ciety i n c I u d ing government bodies, the carpenters said. Tile basis for Canadian au- tonomy springs from the fact Canada is a separate na- tion with its own history, laws, and political institutions. Brycc Mackasay, federal la- bor minister, said earlier this year that he won't "introduce legislation to force more Cana- dian autonomy in international unions if Canadian unionists move voluntarily to autonomy within a reasonable period of time." The brief, to be presented to the Canada Conference of Car-; penters next year, if imple- mented, will "greatly improve" fraternal relations between Ca- nadian and American mem-', bers.

Other local groups contacted by The Herald said that while thoy were opposed to the blast they planned no formal protest.

Not the hits of two years ago that are generally regarded in the pop music world as but authentic early traditions that were the begin- ning of Western music. In a sense, he's a fanatic. He plays the lute almost exclusive- ly, despite the fact there is not INSURANCE LIABILITY BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD. ESTABLISHED 1911 lower Floor 517 4th Ave. S. Phone 327-1541 an overwhelming demand these days for lutenists. (He says that as far as he knows, he is the only professional lute play- er in Canada His dedication even extends to making his own instruments. The one he plays right now is the first he ever made after learning the art in England. He makes them for other peo- ple, too. If Ire did nothing else, he could probahly turn one out every five weeks and sell them all. This kind of demand for an instrument that was al- most completely forgotten in the last century supports his claim that there is a growing interest in early music. There is other evidence. Mr. Nurse points to the widespread use of the ancient musical in- stru ment, the recorder, in schools and by amateur groups. It is a phenomenon largely triggered by the efforts of Ar- nold Dolmetsch and his firm of instrument makers to revive in- terest in instruments that had HEINITZ PRINTERS STATIONERS LTD. 324 Vlh St. S.

Icthbridgn Phono become little more than mu- scum pieces. 1 The necessary tools of the I trade are becoming more eas- ily available, he says. There are stores in London, for exam- ple, where one can walk in and choose from a good selection of viols, shawms, krummhorns and other early instruments. As these become more read- ily accessible to the general public, their use, particularly by amateurs, is bound to grow, he says. A member of a Vancouver group called Hortulani Musicae, Mr. Nurse is concerned with recreating early music as ex- actly as possible. He has little use for so called "improve- i ments" to the original instru- j menls. j But he is not so much the purist that he frowns on play- ing early music on modern in- struments. Playing some 16th century recorder music on the modem transverse flute, for ex-; ample, is perfectly acceptable. He points out that before 1600 I few composers bothered to spe-1 cify what instruments their' music should be played on and that generally early music has plenty of room for improvisa- j iion and personal interpretation by tlie performer. I With increasing leisure time in today's society, the perform- ance of early music by ama-; teurs is increasing and there are more and more profession- t nl groups such as the pioneer- j ing New Pro Musica be- ing formed. Mr. Nurse feels the music written before the time of Bach j and Handel is just as valid as i the graphic art of the same period hut has simply been out i of fashion. He's convinced that, once it becomes more widely heard, it will have an impact on 20th century music. There is al- ready evidence in films that to- day's musicians are concerned with authentic interpretations of early music, he said. Several recent movio sound- tracks have used authentic ar- rangements and instruments. The intimate quality of much early music is also well-suited lo television, ho said, and the Hortulani Musicae had already had some success in this me- dium.
