Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Thurldny, Sspltmb.r 9, 1971 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Family Editor Winnipeg altlcnnanic candidate Agitator Nick Ternette carries torch of protest By PETER MICIIAELSON WINNIPEG (CP) MooL Nick Ternetle, agitator, prov- ocateur. If you want a demon- stration or alternation, per- haps just a quiet face-to-facc meeting, consult Nick Tor ad- vice oa rattling authorities. The rascals who Ihw.Tt Nick's quest for the Just Soci- ety have only themselves to Iliank for his wrath: They got IV.ck enthused ahout this pro- test business when they slopped Mulford Q. Sibley at the border. Prof. Sibley, a solt-spoken I'nilt'd Slates Quaker and pac- ifist, was stopped by immigra- licri aullwirilies at Winnipeg InlcriKilional Airport in March, 19C5, when he came to speak of United States foreign policy at the University of Winnipeg. Nick, a crew-cut college stu- dent of 20, paraded at the air- port with ahout 230 friends, bellowing their indignation in (he civil-rights song, We Shall Overcome. The airport demonstration, rpIE SAFEST WAY to travel is to be bused (That's bused, George, not bussed.) At least in Lethbridge it's the safest. A plaque soon to be hung in the coffee room at the transit department office says so. John Frouns, transit superintendent, Tuesday ac- cepted the Canada Safety Council Award for cities under population for (heir efforts during John v.-as getting a bit edgy, I suspect, before news of the award came out. It seems he hadn't had any bad publicity for a while and it was making him nervous. Where were his favorite dclraclors? Was his crew really that per- fect'' Perhaps no one was noticing his buses? Pei haps, (heaven forbid) no one was riding the buses. John can relax now. though. His buses have been noticed for making an outstanding contribution to public safety. If John ever needs a testimonial, he'll gel it from this writer. His buses have certainly contributed to the safety of at least one motorist. There's this mnlorisl who doesn't exactly drive without due care and caution, but she has a pre- dilection for making lefl hand turns in front of city buses. Her passengers, who are in the closest to the larger vehicle, of course, show some liesitancv in accepting rides to work. Never have 1 seen a city bus driver deliberately run over a pedestrian. jVevcr have I seen a bus driver start the bus too quickly so that I he passenger falls off, at least not before the money was recovered anyway. Never have I seen a bus driver check his watch when a passenger rushes on the bus. Never have I seen a bus driver refuse to allow a little child transportation because he lost his ticket. The little chap might get chilly in the dead of winter riding on the lop of. the bus. but turned down? Never! Never have I seen an adult refused for not having his fare. He's even allowed lo ride inside. There is a reason for this. The 13lh St. underpass doesn't allow for headroom. But if the city ever gets around to putting lights on the 13th St. underpass, at least the kids will see where they're going. And if Regina can send around buses lo ils lax- payers' doors, why can't Lethbridge have George Segal and Wally Myers, who received merit certifi- cates Tuesday for the transit system, drop around and do the same. The secret word in here, John, is taxpayers. When taxpayers want bus service, they want service! Like in Halifax, now where you can rent a city bus all festooned with ribbons and such for weddings. They even supply the red carpet, John in Halifax. AGITATOR Nick Ternelte, on expert at ratlling calls himself a marginal person sociologically. He means he relates to marginal groups, "or oppressed people." He plnns lo stand for election lo ihe 50-member council which will govern greater Winni- peg under a one-city reorganization plan scheduled to go into effect in January.

A GENERATION TO REMEMBER A grandmother from Maple Ridge, B.C. sent a donation and letter to Ihe Unitarian Service Committee, "I have been out of action for 2 years because of a stroke, but am beginning lo knit so will make some simple things for you soon. I lost all my possessions in a fire and am starling again. I am now B3 and not too old to make a new home and earn my living." USC headquarters is at 56 Sparks direct, Ottawa. qoufe 1609 9lh S. or 635 Slh Avu. Nick's first, must have In- flamed the fledgling radical; it was as though Sibley passed his concern for causes, the torch of protest, over to Nick Ternette that day. "I'm a person who's never flirted into a dominant group in he says now. "I was born of Russian parents, and brought up in Berlin after the war. I was an outsider there. "When we came to Canada in the mid-fifties, f spoke no English. Kids used io call me a Nazi. "I'm what you call, in so- ciological terms, a marginal person. I can relate very well to marginal groups, or op- pressed people." His hair is longer now, hanging in neat Hat cut to the nape of his neck, and he has grown a moustache. Nick, a community worker, a Marxist, is employed by the Company of Young Canadi- ans. SEEKS NOMINATION It's a warm Friday evening, so the front door is left open. Ten people are silting around on Salvation Army furniture in Nick's deteriorating old co- op listening to him outline plans for his aldermanic cam- paign. Squatting on Hie floor be- nealh a raised-fisi poster of Lenin, Nick reads from policy papers he has prepared: funds should not be used to further the recreation of the afflu- city should build a reservoir of projects for times of high Transporta- must end the city's subsidizing o[ cars since the majority of citizens do not own them." He plans to run as an NDP candidate for the 50-membcr council which will govern Greater Winnipeg under the Manitoba government's one- c i I y reorganization plan scheduled lo go inlo effect in Consumer consultants appointed OTTAWA tCP) Consumer consultants have been appointed in Toronto and Montreal, the federal consumer affairs de- partment announced Tuesday. Deanna Bums, a home econo- mist who graduated from the liniversily of Manitoba in Win- nipeg, will joint the Ontario re- gional office in Toronto. Fran- cine Dufour, a graduate in do- mestic science from. Laval Uni- versity in Quebec City, will work at the department's Mont- real office. The new appointment? in- crease the department's staff of consumer consultants to 12, lo- cated in St. John's, Halifax, Fredericton, Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina Edmonton, Vancouver. The consultants help with department programs aimed at informing consumers about consumer protection poli- cies and legislation. January. Elections are In late September. But can Nick get an NDP nomination? he thunders. "Whoever works the hardest is Roing to get it." Will the people in the rooir: campaign for himV Yes, they will, hut one girl, Maria, wants lo study his policy pa- pers a little more closely be- fore committing herself. RADICAL IMPACT In an interview In a down- town restaurant a few days earlier. Nick had briefly re- lated example; of his work in the community. In when he was chair- man of a social sciences con- ference at the University of Winnipeg, he inspired Gil Mol- gat, Ihen Manitoba Liberal party leader, lo inlroduco a private member's bill asking for a new juvenile dfiliii- qucncy home in Winnipeg. Mr. Molgat had attended Ihe conference on Nick's invi- tation, and was impressed with lire youth's denunciation of the existing facilities and persuasive plea for new quart- ers. "We didn't get a new build- ing, but eventually the Con- servative government reno- vated the whole building and made says Nick. Between and 1969, he estimated on the side of mod- esty, he contributed to con- verting at least 30 people into radicals. This he accom- plished through his teaching at the Free University of Win- nipeg and at Ihe People's Co- operative Centre, and through hi1; job in a radical bookstore. In 1970, he attended the poor people's conference in Toronto, and was named sub- chairman of the resolutions committee. He returned to Winnipeg and organized two poor people's parliaments. AKRESTED Ar FESTIVAL Nick's attraction for the front lines of protest move- ments got him into trouble with Winnipeg police last slimmer. He was arrested at a rock festival, where he was part of a group protesting high ticket prices. Nick later charged he had been manhan- dled by police during the ar- rest. For the first time, a Winni- peg police commission hear- ing into charges of police bru- tality was held in public. The open hearings were called after Attorney-General A. H. Mackling said he might liold m> own invesligalion of the case, and ordered that charges of obstructing police be dropped. After several days of evi- dence, the commission exon- erated (he police and criti- cized Mr. tackling for his In- trusion into the affairs of tho Winnipeg police department. If he gels elected in his al- d e r m a n i c campaign, Nick says now, one of his first prioriities will be to press for a civilian review board for po- lice activities. xv calendar happe Maple Leaf Chapter No. 7 OES will celebrate its 60th an- niversary dinner Friday at 6-30 p.m. at Erioksen's Family Res- taurant. i The Handicappen Social Club will hold its regular meeting at the Moose Hall at p.m. Friday.
