opposed the resolution that took up 90 minutes of a plenary session as delegates were lined up eight deep at the six floor microphone positions The prime thrust of the resolution was a renewed call for a department of women s rights which Premier Dave Barrett has said is not the way to solve women's problems in British Columbia A similar resolution was passed by the convention a year ago but the department hasn't been set up Instead, Mr Barrett feels a human rights code and human rights commission is sufficient The party s women's rights committee again called for equal education emphasis in schools, equal pay and employment opportunities, abortion reforms and free child care facilities Yvonne Cocke, wife of Health Minister Dennis Cocke, attempted to have the resolution referred to the resolutions committee but the convention rejected the move by a vote of 274 to 239 Mrs Cocke said the points raised in the women's resolu- tion are already on our books and it would be unfair to have them superseded by this year s resolution which was couched in negative rhetoric Her motion would have removed the resolution from the convention cut it down considerably and removed the reference to a department of women s rights Sharon Yandle of Vancouver said the party's women's rights committee, is "doing more than beating our drum it is a very big drum She acknowledged that a department of women's rights might not be the solution 'We don't have the answers but we do have the ques- tions She said the government hired a woman pilot but that was "token sexism "The government insists on

second court battle for custody of their six children Judge Norman Ackley ruled Tuesday that Madeleine Isaacson and Sandra Schuster can retain custody of their children by previous marnges and should
