Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta WerfnMdoy, September 15, 1971 THE IETHBBIDGI HIHAID 27 Research reports in public archives B and B commission gets licks at news media before ending inquiry OTTAWA (CP) The royal commission on bilinguaiism and biculluralism got. in its licks at press, radio and television before it formally expired this year. It was beaten to Llic publishing punch by Senator Keith Da-vey's report on the media its research reports to the public achieves. One of these reports, entitled A Survey of the Press in Canada by S. D. Gagne. is considered so "hot" thai it will not be opened to public view until 109B. Also under the 25-year at least Uiree other commission research reports, including one on the South African armed forces and another entitled A Case Study of Ihe Takeover of Shawhiigan Water and Power by the Quebec Government. In all, the commission sent 159 unpublished research to the archives, including at least five on press, radio and television. Tlie reports are mainly critical. For instance, Prof. Donald Gordon in a report on national news in Canadian newspapers says that readers cannot rewiily obtain information "in balance and context about the nation as a whole." He and his research staff carried oul a day-to-day survey of 20 newspapers between Jan. 11 and June 30, 1965. He says the French-language papers are preoccupied wilh the affairs of the Quebec "nation" while the English-language press tends to bt preoccupied "wilh their nation too." Prof. Neil Comptou, in a I5S5 report, on biciilturalism and the English-language media, says that despite The Canadian Press "the front pages of daily newspapers still reflect the view thai a dogfight on Main St. should take precedence over riots in Athens and earthquakes in Japan." He says the English-language media are dominated by the advertising industry, a he says, to "national consciousness." He fays 'confusion" in the CDC is due to the "incompatibility of the corporation's aims with conditions under which it must raise much of its income." WAITS FO'lt U.S. Prof Campion adds: "The CBC, that instrument Canadian nationalism, cannot or dare not plan its fall television schedule until after the American networks have announced theirs." French-speaking Canadians, he urges, should have access to services of all media in French, "whether they live in Vercheres or a huge two-volume study dated I960, Mrs. Jean Bruce says that in (he 1955-65 decade the "over-all news pattern" changed so that news represented almost half of Ihe total amount of news published. Her research is based on analysis of 30 daily newspapers. Political-social-economic news ranked first, followed by sports, crime, accidents, education and entcrlaintmenl in that order. There had been a "significant in the amount of Quebec news carried in thft papers of other provinces. Between 1955 and 1965 Montreal La Presse and Quebec Le Soleil had doubled their coverage of the English-speaking provinces. Basically, however, Canadian newspapers are regional in their coverage, Mrs, Bruce says. British Columbia papers published litUe about the other provinces except Quebec, Ontario and Alberta. The Prairie papers concentrated on Quebec, Ontario and neighboring provinces. The Ontario papers emphasized Quebec and western news while Quebec papers' coverage of other-province news was dominated by Ontario. Papers in the Atlantic region gave precedence to Quebec, Ontario and neighboring province The major source of news about every province was The Canadian Press. Life term, for posset WHITE PLAINS. N.Y. (AP) A woman and two braiders, convicted of illegally possessing nine pounds of cocaine, have been sentenced to life imprisonment under a new stale law equating the penally lor drug possession in large quantities with the penally for murder. State Supreme Court Judge George Beishein imposed the sentences Monday on Madeline Pineda, 29, who also was convicted of sale of drugs, ajid Martin Hernandez, 35, and his brother, Victor, 25. An appeal is automatic in all three cases. The tliree, convicted on the drug counts July 27 after a two-week trial, were arrested handed ssion of c Nov. 6 after the Hernandez brothers allegedly purchased the cocaine for at Mrs. Pineda's apartment. Mario Sepulveda, 31, a fourth defendant who turned state's witness, testified at their trial that be had aclcd as a courier for Mrs. Pineda in smuggling the drugs off a Chilean ship, the Maipo, after it had arrived in New York City. MAN STILL SOUGHT District Attorney Carl A. Ver-gari said Mrs. Pinsda's husband, Hugo, 34, still is being sought in the case in Valparaiso, Chile. Under the sentences imposed Monday, Mrs. Pineda and Martin Hernandez were ordered ocaine serve a minimum 25 years in prison, and the younger Hernandez, a minimum 20 years. The heavy sentences were the first imposed in Westchastcr County under a stale law that equates the penalty for possession and sale of over one pound of a dangerous drug with the penalty for murder. If the convictions stand, all of the defendants must serve the minimum terms before being allowed to apply for TORONTO (CP) Foreign ministers of Canada ar.d Japan pursued bilateral trade issues on the final day of a meeting of ministers lor discussions on a wide range of topics. A Canadian said Takeo Fukuda, Japan's foreign minister, stressed tho "essential need for Japan to have raw materials" in discussions with his Canadian counterpart. Mitchell Sharp. Mr. Sharp said the Canadian government looked forward to increases in the level of trade between the two counlries, A joint communique was scheduled to be released trade st ing the afternoon session of the closed talks. The Canadian delegation presented what was described as a "forceful and clear presentation of the Canadian point of view" at the Monday meeting. This included comments on Japan's "restrictive import policies, extraordinarily aggressive marketing policies and her undervalued currency." At the meeting today, Mr. Fukuda questioned Mr. Sharp on Canadian negotiations to establish diplomatic relations with China. Mr. Shaip outlined Canada-China negolaitions at holm, which led to establishment of formal diplomatic relations.

(CP) Cana- dian abortion law remains ine- quitable despite amendments made in 1969, the College of Family Physicians was told Tuesday. Dr. John Lederman of Van- couver, a lawyer as well as a physician, said that although the amended law is more lib- eral, it contains two major de- fects which prevent nil women from being treated fairly. One part of the amendment requires that a comittee must be established in an accredited hospital to approve abortion, he said. Three docotrs must be members of the committee, but Ihe remaining un- specified be any- body, "including plumbers." "There is no mandatory re- quirement that there even be a Dr. Lederman said. "Statistics show that only 143 of accredited hospitals in the 10 provinces and territories have committees." He also told a news confer- ence that at least one of those committees was set up only to say "no." The second defect is that the law permits abortion to be done if, in the opinion of the commit- tee, continuation of the preg- nancy would endanger the life or health of the woman. "The trouble is with the word health." If the committee interprets this in a narow view there are few conditions- in which the medical profession can't protect the physical health, he said. If it takes a broad the social well-being of the fam- ily and woman could be affected almost any request for abortion could be approved. "So you can see the law, in practice, doesn't apply to all women equally." Dr. Lederman also said the number of requests for abor- tions has put such a load on some hospitals that they havp placed geographical or other re- strictions on who they will take. This, plus the fact that not all hospitals have commitlees. makes it unfair for some women, he said. Anglican dean denies 10 charges PRETORIA (Reuter) The Anglican dean of Johannesburg told a South African court here that it might some day be his duty to disobey Ihe laws of the state but he has not yet done so. Very Rev. Gonville French- Beytagh is charged with plot- ting the violent overthrow of the South African government, flic dean, an outspoken crusader against the republic's apartheid race laws, has pleaded not guilty to 10 charges brought under Ihe sweeping provisions of the Terrorism Act. He told the court that as a Christian he would obey the laws of the slate. But he said in some cases it would be his duty to disobey the exam- ple in Nazi Germany some peo- ple used to report Jews, this ought not to have been obeyed." Asked if he had ever been called on to disobey a law, he replied: "I have not yet. I feel the time may conic, but I have not yet been called upon to do so." The prosecution has alleged Dial large sums of money were channelled through the dean to illegal organizations in South Africa. They accused a Miss Allison Norman, 37-year-old member of a wealthy London banking fam- ily, of sending the money to the derm and said she was con- nected wilh an anti-apartheid organization in London. WOULD. NOT ATTKND In wrlilcn evidence, Miss Nor- man denied this and she refused to come to Pretoria to give evi- dence. The dean dcall nt length with correspondence find fiuniu'ial dealings he had with Miss Nor- man. The (lean said he bad handled funds for church and welfare purposes in Rhodesia the biggest amount came from her. There was one sum of nearly He sent her an account of how he had spent her money. He said he had helped people fleeing from The Congo and the families of detainees. Asked whether on his return to Johannesburg he had any- j thing to do with the Defence and Aid Fund the dean replied: "Mo. Not at all."
