Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAtD Monday, Soplomgor 14, 1970 Revamp Policy EDMONTON (CP) A re- port on expansion of Edmon- ton Power service areas as the city expands has been re- ceived by the provincial gov- ernment and is being consider- ed in a revamping of the prov- incial energy policy, Industry a n d Tourism Minister Ray Ratzlaff said in an interview Sunday.

Last week Premier Harry Strom announced the govern- ment is considering setting up a provincial energy board that would correlate government agencies responsible for en- ergy policy in various areas, such as oil and gas, electricity and water resources.

Schools Will Stay Savs Clarke EDMONTON (CP) Tech- nology will change but schools will not become ob- solete, says Dr. S. C. T. Clarke, a University oj Alberta edu- cation expert.

Stevens, an employee of Uni- versal Ambulance, received a call Jan. 22 to take a woman to hospital. He went to a Cal- gary apartment, took the wom- an to the ambulance but then returned because he suspected another woman and her young son were being held against their will by a man. When the apartment door was opened he was stabbed. "What counts for them is freedom of association and free- dom of action, and not an illu- sory he said. Raymond Parent, secretary- general of the Confederation of National Trade Unions, told1 one workshop ses- sion the party is not really dem- ocratic. Mr. Parent, who was booed three times during his speech, said the Liberal party has, its roots in "what I would call the poor period of democracy." SUGGESTS COURSE He called on the Liberals to distinguish the deeply demo- cratic aspects of their party and to seek roots in popular action instead of "the vaults of the great financial powers." Speakers pointed repeatedly to the organization of the sepa- ratist Parti Quebecois as an ex- ample for the Liberals to follow.

The delegates voted 150 to 20 in favor of abolishing the Quebec Student Liberal which1 includes party members below the age of 31. The student federation, which r e -n a m e d itself ths Quebec Young Liberals Association and opened membership to Quebec students and workers from 14 to 30 years old is to meet again in three months to discuss integration. WILL FORM COMMISSION Mr. Bourassa said the party will create a commission to study ways of modifying the structures of the federation so it will be a means of communication between party leaders and the population. The commission would report to a special renewal convention which would then work on restructuring the party. He also said party members will be asked to participate more fully in party affairs and "prepare the government's plan of action." Mr. Bourassa said the Liberals, brought to power in last April's election, will introduce 'a new type of action animation and' participation" among the population. "The leaders of the Parti Quebecois add, subtract, multiply and divide to try and minimize lie election results, but the Liberal party still scored a great victory." He added that the Liberals are the only party to have received wide support from all elements hi Quebec to a special seminar spon sored by the Alberta Teachers Association. But information giving an information receiving techiu ques will be vastly changed. He said "curriculum kits' will be used to assist teachers These would consist of printet materials, slides, films, record ings and other audio-visua materials. They could be usey a plcknicker.
