Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta GM To Stick To Standard Sized Cars ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) The Oldsmobile division of Gen- eral Motors, after taking a hard look at the minicar field, de- cided it is too crowded and will continue to concentrate instead on intermediate and standard- size cars. That was the word from John B. Beltz, General Motors vice- president and general manager of Oldsmobile division, at the national press preview of the E1971 Oldsmobile line here. Beltz said Olds has eased off lire horsepower race and in- stead is stressing the fact that ils new engines can do more in the field of pollution reduction than any of their predecessors "Buyers are leaning towards cooler, less-aggressive cars antf they are getting unhooked from the hot he said.

Urged To Use Powers To Help Solve Urban Issues WINNIPEG (CP) The con- stitution has become an ".Til- purpose linus blanket" for Ca- nadian politicians anxious to ivoid getting involved in urban problems, says Ihe Institute of Urban Studies of the University of Winnipeg. New Members Named To CCC OTTAWA (CP) Seven new members were named to the Canadian consumer council ay by the consumer affairs department. They are: Mrs. Margaret Ri- deout, Monclon, N.B., Mrs. laire 1'Heureux-Dube, Quebec City; Joseph A. Dionne, Mont- real; Robert Hurlbut, To- ronto; Mrs. F. E. Jones, Dun- das, Out.: Mrs. Catherine Brent, Saskatoon; and Dr. Peter Pearse, Vancouver. The advisory council was set up on the recommendation of the Economic Council of Can- ada. Members are not paid. The institute said Friday 'he federal government should use the powers it has to help solve urban problems. This would mean providing funds to municipalities for urban development and largely bypassing provincial govern- ments. The institute's views were contained in a brief to the joint parliamentary committee on the constitution which is meeting here. It was submitted by Lloyd Ax- worthy, director of the institute. The institute said the federal government has power under Ihe British North America Act to become involved in at least four areas of urban develop- ment: research and statistics; transportation and communica- tion; rural housing, and provi- sion of funds. The most important was the spending power. "Politically the actions of the federal govern- ment in regards to housing may be questioned, legally the fed- eral government has full power to spend its money where it chooses." Parliament could make pay- ments to anyone, even in areas where it did not have the pawer to legislate, "as long as Parlia- ment is financing and not ad- ministering, it is free to act." The institute said there has been public indifference to low cost housing and no political leadership. Also recommended was a sec- tion on democratic rights in a revised constitution. The government should also be willing to provide support for citizens groups challenging ex- isting institutions. Replying to Senator Allister i Grosaii Mr. Ax- worthy said: "By and large local govern- ment is very antagonistic to cit- izen participation. It is the fed- eral obligation to support them."
