Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta II THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, October 31, Loch Ness getting monster Immigration green paper studied visitors will be able to see LONDON (AP) Loch Ness, whose murky waters rate as one of Scotland's top tourist attractions, is getting a monster visitors will be able to get a look at. The concrete and commissioned by the local Preservation Group. The legendary prehistoric monster said to lurk in the Scottish Loch has evaded hunters for decades, although numerous sightings have been claimed. For years the Loch Ness Preservation Group has main- tained round-the-clock vigils around the loch without any positive proof. Now the group has had its own Nessie made by London artist Alan Ross. An authority on prehistoric creatures, Ross builds life- size cement and steel models which have been exhibited in many countries. "Nessie was my most chal- lenging said Ross. "Reports and pictures of monster sightings at Loch Ness and similar lakes in Finland, Ireland and Canada indicate that Nessie is probably a prehistoric elasmosaurus."

(Lethbridge) By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The Canadian government's green paper, now under study in the cabinet, indicates concern if the present trend in im- migration continues it will br- ing about a marked change in the makeup of this country's population. It is a confidential docu- ment. Unlike a white paper it does not set out govern- ment policy. It does not take firm positions nor does it advocate policies. It sets out all sides of a question and avoids taking a position or suggesting the best answer. The green paper will be ta- bled in the commons in the New Year, but its contents are leaking out. There is growing concern in some government circles about the impact of steadily mounting non- European immigration. Immigration Minister Robert Andras told the com- mons, when he imposed a clamp on soaring immigration last week, that it would be late in 1975 before new immigra- tion legislation could be ex- pected. He estimated it would be mid-1977 before the amend- ed legislation would have sub- stantial effects on the im- migration flow.. Through the preparation of a green paper the minister is inviting and encouraging dis- cussion on what sort of society Canadians want. When it, is made public and debated in' the commons it will spark a spirited discussion. It will set out the options. It will seek not to weigh argu- ments heavily in any eae direction, a spokesman for the immigration department said Wednesday. It will examine what has happened in the past and erect guideposts as to where we are headed in the fu- ture if certain actions are taken or not taken. Is it a racist document? Those who have examined it in its preliminary stages counter with the question: how do you define racist? It implies that Canadians would probably want to main- tain the present proportion in Canada of those who speak English and those who are French speaking. That can be defined as a "racist" policy, a departmental spokesman pointed out. He added that if it is racist to impose curbs on immigra- tion to bring it down more in keeping with the level of job opportunities in Canada, then the present government's ac- tion could be described as racist. Mr. Andras last week in the house announced such changes in regulations linking the flow of immigration more directly to the availability of jobs. There are indications in the Green Paper that the govern- ment might want to consider continuing curbs on immigra- tion from non-traditional areas and on nominated im- migrants. These suggestions in press reports about the green paper have arouscu some editorial criticism that there is a danger the govern- ment is reverting to racial origin as a key factor in deter- mining policy. Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau led the attack on such a policy. During the 1968 lead- ership convection of the Liberal party he declared Canada could not close its doors to the people of Asia and Africa without arousing hostility in those areas and stirring up strong reactions. There has been a trend during the Trutieau regime away from Canada's traditional im- migration policies of empha- sizing British and French immigrants admitting only a small percentage of non- whites into the country. Mr. Andras said the imme- diate alterations in immigra- tion regulations were taken only after very careful con- sideration in cabinet. -They CANADA SAVINGS BONDS THE GREAT COMBINATION New Canada Savings Bonds are a great combination of security, income and flexibility.
