Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, September 11, 1972 Alberta makes poor showing in tourist promotion spending The Alberta government should be spending at leas', twice the budgeted for tourist promotion this year, says Frank Smith, executive vice- president of the Travel nnd Con- vention Association of Southern Alberln. Tlie Alberta government ranks eighth in the amount of money provincial governments spend on tourist promotion, ac- cording to figures from the Travel Industry Association of Canada. "Alberta should he fourth be- hind Quebec and Ontario and breathing hard on the coat tails of British said Mr. Smith. Despite its low national rank- ing, Alberta has increased tour- ist promotion spending by 23 per cent this yiiar, up from Mr. Smith said the provincial government should spend about SI.6 million one dollar per capita on travel Industry promotional efforts. Only Saskatchewan, Prince Edward Island and the Yukon and Northwest Territories spend less than Alberta on gov- ernment tourist promotion. "Except for Banff and Jas- per (national parks) which are over-exploited, the tourist po- tential "in Alberta hasn't been exploited at said the local travel official.

There is some feeling that if the government is going to cap- italize on the proposed move- politically, some activity should ba started by the Liberal gov- ernment during the current campaign for the Oct. 30 gen- eral election. The general feeling is that If such a move takes place, UIC would move in with the Man- power Centre where space and staff are considerably larger. At present the Manpower Cen- tre is located on the second floor of the Federal Building in downtown Lethbridge and the UIC is located at 313 5th St. S., also downtown. To date operations of Man- power and UIC have been amalgamated only in centres like Dnimheller, Blalrmora and Medicine Hat where Manpower operations only had been car- ried on, and there was no UIC. Indications are that Leth- bridge is slated for a new fed- eral building and this is also expected to bo confirmed dur- ing the election campaign. Tha new building would house var- ious federal government offices and the joint operations of Man- power and UIC would be in this building.
