LETHBRIDGE September Dean surrenders John Dean, the principal accuser of former President Richard Nixon in the Watergate cover-up, arrives at U.S District Court m Washington Dean began serv- ing a one-to-four-year prison term Canada's Indian treatment record poor LONDON (CP) A report by a private research organiza- tion specializing in minority rights says Canada has "a long history of failure, parsimony and neglect" to overcome in its treatment of Canadian Indians. But the report gives some credit to the Trudeau govern- ment for the progress Indians have made during the last dec- ade. The accomplishments of Indian organizations and individ- uals in that tune have been says the document published here by the Minority Rights Group headed by Jo Gnmond, former Liberal party leader. These "have identified the problems of native people and suggested practical solutions that take account, as no government has ever done, of the fundamental social and historical factors underlying the present the report says. "They have gained power, respect and a great deal of political expertise after a century of being discredited and sapped of initiative and they have given more hope and deter- mination to the Indian community than it has had for 100 years." The report, written by British social worker James Wilson after he visited Canada to study the Indian situation last year, says> Jean Chretien, then minister ol Indian affairs, was probably more criticized than any previous holder of that federal portfolio But Chretien, now president of the treasury board, helped at the Indian affairs department "to create the atmosphere in which criticism is possible, most notably by giving finan- cial support to national and local Indian organizations Chretien, Wilson writes, "had the courage to acknowledge mistakes and even his ferocious debates with show a willingness, markedly absent in earlier administrations, to take the views of native people seriously Yet, Wilson states, "despite these encouraging signs there has still not been a major transformation of Indian life The report charges that the Indian affairs department re- mains "a huge and costly vested interest and may, wittingly or unwittingly, obstruct the movement of power and re- sources to the Indians Ib. tub I MANDARINS Town House orange sections. 10 fl. oz. tin DICED BEETS Taste Tells Canada Choice. 14 fl.oz. tin......................WR CREAMED HONEY 9 Empress pure white Canada No. 1 TOMATO CATSUP 3sftQt Town House. 11 fl. oz.
