Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tops All Pavilions With- 25.Million Visitors Canada Achieves Objective At Expo '70 OSAKA (CP) Canada has achieved its prime objective at Expo '70 by "distilling in the generation of Japanese a regard and appreciation for Canada, its people and things says Patrick Reid, commissioner-general of Can- ada's popular, prize-winning pa- vilion, in an assessment of Can- ada's role at the Orient's first world's fair. Expo '70 closes Sunday with an assured record attendance of more than 65 million compared with 50.3 million at Montreal's Expo G7. Canada have topped all pavilions with more than 25 mil- lion over Can- ada's entire population of 21.2 million by the latest Dominion Bureau of Statistics estimates. "Japan really discovered Can- ada at our said Reid. "It was a great step forward, a firm contact with the Japan of the future, a very valid part of our whole program." He said in an interview Can- ada's presence "confirmed in- ternationally the sophistication and techniques of our economy, and that Expo 67 was no Cash in the pan but a fair which es- tablished firm .foundations for us to work on." Reid said that "in terms of outlay and techniques it is fair to say we have had a successful presentation." "Financially so, w.e saved on our mil- lion budget." LED ALL FROM START Canada led the world into Expo '70, being first to sign a participation contract, and first in all phases of pavilion con- struction and development. Reid was named chairman of the steering committee of com- missioners-general, an Influc tial body representing all f( eign Expo participants. All public opinion polls of Ja ancse and foreign visitors co sistehtly named1 Canada, Russ and the United States as Expo three most popular foreign p vilions. Canada's pavilion captur the audience for which it w specially youth. Magazine surrays confirm that Japan's young people ove whelmingly chose Canada's p vilion as their favorite. Nothing at Expo '70 was pi: tographed as often as ?ie Can dian pavilion of mirrors and i RCMP guards. The Japanese Broadcastir Corporation co-starred the C nadian pavilion and its staff a television drama aimed Japanese youth, and an anon Police Involved In Major Thefts BRANTFORD, Ont. (CP) Testimony that 27 major burgla- ries involving thousands of dol- lars in stolen goods had been committed by police officers here between 1961 and 1908 was given in provincial court here by a former Brantford police constable. Lester Lolli said Brantford Police Chief George Kerr was aware of criminal activities of men on his force but nothing bad been done to stop them. Mr. Lolli, now a student at the University of Geulph, said another former member of the force had admitted to him that he had committed a robbery at the Public Utilities Commission and had been responsible for other thefts. Bus receipts worth were stolen from the PUC March 24, 1968. Mr. Lolli said false informa- tion would be given to investi- gating officers after a theft had been completed and the break- in was reported back to the po- lice station. In one instance po- lice cars were sent to chase a non-existent person. Chief Kerr, Deputy Chief Les- ter Butcher, Lieut. Gordon Cro- cock and p r o vi n c i a 1 police inspector Archie Ferguson are charged with conspiring to ob- struct justice by failing to charge one of the officers in- volved in the break-and-enter ring. They have pleaded not guilty. Mr. Lolli said that several other policemen still working on the force were also involved in the thefts. He testified that Constable John MacKenzie, who had left the force, admitted breaking into the utility building and that he had seen several other police officers commit other criminal offences. He testified that MacKenzie told Chief Kerr he was prepared to supply the department with all the names of the officers in- volved and the dates of all the offences. After the meeting Mr. Lolli said he had asked Chief Kerr if ty charges were going to be laid against Macknezie. He said Chief Kerr told him: "I'm in charge of this depart- ment and I'll look afctr it." The case is continuing.

Canada's was the only foreign pavilion visited by Emperor Hi- rohito when he opened Expo March 14. MANY VIPs CAME Later VIPs included all the Japanese royal family, Prince Charles of Britain, Prime Minis- ter Sato of Japan, President Svoboda of Czechoslovakia, heads of state or official repre- sentatives from more than 50 nations, and many provincial premiers, federal and provincial cabinet ministers, senators and MPs. Some per cent VIP treatment. For its designers, Erickson and Massey of Vancouver, Can- ada's pavilion won a special "golden triangle" award from the National Society of Interior Designers of the United States, and just before Expo closed it won first prize in the special Expo awards presented by the Architectural Institute of Japan. "Canada's pavilion was ex- tremely lucky, "said Reid. "We could see from pur fore- knowledge of the massive audi- ence ahead that it could not he absorbed in the traditional way. So our designers did right and set out to capture the youth we had been led quite rightly to ex- pect. Our discovery theme, with simple aims; set out to show progressively what Canada is like, and it did so quickly and clearly by films and displays. People saw us as a young and vibrant country." He credited much of the pavil- ion's popularity to the continu- ous entertainment on its floating stage by top Canadian talent. He said Expo '70, "in its own way and in terms at least of statistics was probably the greatest world's fair of all time. "A Japanese businessman told me thai 25 years after the disaster of the Second World War Expo '70 at last brought full emancipation to his coun- try." Reid regretted that "an extra- vaganza of this size doesn't know how to look after crowds (a staggering here on Sept. "We must get together and solve this problem, so people who pay admission know what pavilion ttey can go to at what particular time without having to wait in long queues for hours.- "At least the Japanese had a disciplined audience, otherwise there would have been chaos." Canada's pavilion, a hollow pyramid of mirrors shimmering with reflected colors, a majestic timbered interior of pond and floating stage and miniature gardens and tiered 'wooden seats under huge colored plastic parasols, will doubtless have a long-term impact on Japan. Immediate results are that ;he Canadian Government Travel Bureau and its visa off- ice in Tokyo have' been swamped with enquiries.
