THE LETHBRIDGI! HERAID Friday, September IB, 1970 National Urban Policy Robert Andras' Goal PENTICTON, B.C. (CP) Discussions between the fed- eral anil provincial govern- ments on urban affairs should start within three months, Rob- ert Andras, federal minister re- sponsible for housing, told dele- gates to the 67th annual con- vention of Uie Union of British Columbia .Municipalities Thurs- day. He warned that Canada's population is expected to dou- ble within the next 30 years and lie wants to achieve a na- tional urban policy, something which Canada has never had. "Certainly the need for a na- tional urban policy has never been more pressing. We are at what the cliche miters call a turning point: one o f exciting opportunity if we take the right approaches, or of a slide into the kinds of deterioration and accompanying social upheavals that we see in some cities in the United States." Mr. Andras said he has been it. studying the many dimension: of "the urban problem." "1 am told that at this con vention you are calling for system of communications am consultation between the mu nicipal, provincial and federa levels of government, on ui'ba affairs.

The invitation appeared to veil a warning. The delegates voted as ex- pected on the matter of a suc- cessor to an ailing William Smith as president but they also voted out one member of the national executive and selected two new men felt to be mere in seeping with the mood of the convention. At the same time, the vote of Churchill Pullout Opposed By MP CHURCHILL, Man. (CP) A reported proposal to pull Churchill out of Manitoba and into the Northwest Teritories was strongly opposed Thursday by Manitoba IIP Douglas Row- land Commenting on a news report that Stuart Hodgson, commis- sioner of the teritories, had suggested that Churchill should be ceded to the Northwest Ter- ritories in six months, Mr. Row- land said: "If he said that, I consider his action to be reprehensible. I in- tend to look into it." He was speaking at a public hearing of the joint parliamen- tary committee on the constitu- tion at this Hudson Bay port, 610 miles north of Winnipeg. It was the last meeting of an eight-day tour of Manitoba and the Yukon. The parliamentar- ians return to Ottawa today. John Kristiansen of Churchill said that the town was more naturally part of the territories than Manitoba. The parliamentarians also heard Frank M c C a 11 i o n, a teacher at the Churchill voca- tional school, urge that the com- mittee go into the Indian com- munities and talk directly with the residents. "One third of this area has not been represented here to- night. Indians are shy and retir- ing and somewhat afraid of the white man's system." Phil Dickman, a development officer with the Indian affairs department, said that the white man's law does not deal fairly with Indians. Indians do not have the same values as white men and do not understand the law. Their rights and values should be protected by the con- stitution, he said.

Average annual yield of the new issue to the buyer if held to maturity in 11 years will be 7% per cent, the finance depart- ment disclosed Wednesday. Last HALE 307 SI. S. year's Issue is bringing eight per cent over ninejears. But if a compound-interest bonus the 1970 issue is added to yield calculations, the buyer will get a slightly higher yield than for the 1969 issue if he saves ..tip his annual interest coupons for the longer life of the bond rather than cash them in each year. Earlier bonds also carried compound interest formula whereby the buyer allows his interest-earnings to stay in and earn more. Like previous issues, the 1970 bonds may be cashed at any tune for the face value plus ac- crued interest and can be pur- chased for cash or through pay- roll deductions. 255 to 105 to promote national secretary-treasurer Donald Se- cord, 59, to the union's presi- dency did not appear as a rejec- tion of the platform of aggres- sive leadership mounted by his challenger, Richard Greaves, a business agent for the CBRT's leaway local on the Welland Canal. Mr. Greaves considered to be at the disadvantage of a marine worker in a predominatly rail- way union, was widely identi- fied by his supporters as the key figure in the 1966 strike of seaway workers which resulted now-famous 30-per-cent wage raise. His challenge stressed that the CBRT should re-assert a position of leadership as the third-largest national union in Canada and1 .he proposed to work for a coalition of rail, marine and trucking workers to increase bargaining power.
