Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Something may be brewing in Quebec _ ___ 1., nnfmisn Reeeiti Charlrand. he MONTREAL (CP) The last two Octobers have brought spectacular and violent events to Montreal, and Quebecers are wondering whether Uie coming month will pass quietly. Indications are that some- tiling is brewing, despite Justice Minister Jerome Choquette's statement to reporters last weekend that he is "optimistic that peace is going to reign hi Quebec." Two years ago, Montreal po- lice staged a one-day strike Oct. 7, and a wild riot ensued, caus- ing Uie shooting death of a plainclothes Quebec provincial policeman. And last October was the month of North America's first political kidnappings, resulting in the death of Pierre Laporte, the kidnapped Quebec labor minister. The crisis began Oct. 5 with the kidnapping of James Rich- ard (Jasper) Cross, British trade commissioner who was fi- nally released Dec. 4 in a deal that sent his abductors safely away to Cuba. Two bombings occurred two weekends ago in separate sub- urbs of Montreal, which had en- joyed its quietest summer since 1967 as far as terrorism is con- cerned. The terrorist Front de Liberation du Quebec observed a tacit moratorium on violence during Expo 67 but then esca- lated operations until the kid- nap-murder crisis. A dynamite bomb caused damage Sept. 3 at a Bell Canada relay station at nearby Dorion and one night later a smaller explosive dam- aged an office and shattered windows at an English Catholic elementary school at Ahuntsic, in north-end Montreal. Police reported they had so far found no motive for the GERMAN CANADIAN CLUB TONIGHT'S ANNIVERSARY SUPPER and DANCE IS SOLD OUT!

Premier Robert Bourassa re- ported, meanwhile, that he had asked Quebec Provincial Police .0 investigate a series of thefts of communications equipment 'rom civil-protection units in the Montreal area. The premier refused to com- ment on speculation that the thefts were related to terrorism. A spokesman for the combined anti-terrorist squad said earlier terrorists might be equipping themselves with such things as two-way radios and gas masks. THEFTS WIDE-RANGING Members of the squad, made up of RCMP, Montreal and QPP specialists, were studying thefts that had been committed during a 10-day period from cM lection units and police vehicles in Montreal and up to 30 miles away. But police scoffed at pub- lished reports quoting a govern- ment press officer as saying the co-ordinator of terrorist activi ties last October was a well known and respected Quebwei and was still at large. An unexpected element en- tered the situation when notes purportedly from the FLQ said Pierre Vallieres, 33-year-old ac- tivist author, had gone under- ground rather than face new court appearances on charges oi seditious conspiracy and coun- selling to murder and kidnap- ping. A warrant was issuec after Vallieres missed a Sept. 7 appearance. Demonstrations are being or ganized in various parts ol Quebec to mark the anniversarj of invocation of the War Mea sures Act Oct. 16, says the Front Commun pour la Defense de la Languo mon Front for the Defence of the French Language. The front, which groups scv- ral militant and nationalist or- anizations, announced t w o eeks ago that plans call for udent meetings and a rally at n East-end Montreal arena 3ct. 15 followed by parades in everal centres the next day.

Trials arising from the death of Mr. Laporte, kidnapped Oct. 10 and slain Oct. 17, are still continuing in Court of Queen's Bench. If previous patterns con- tinue, the court is in for verbal fireworks and perhaps some scuffling in October. PARIS (CP) Rene Leves- ue, leader of the separatist 5arti Quebecbis, is quoted in a French magazine as saying hat 1970 marked the start of a ecade in which Quebec will ither obtain its sovereignty or alend permanently into Confed- eration. Ijevesque says in a 12-page irticle in the quarterly maga- ine Preuves that independence vould allow Quebec to escape he dangers of both terrorism and enslavement to the federal jovemment. He said the provincial elec- tion of April, 1970, in which 'remier Robert Bourassa's Li- terals won 72 of 108 seats, and ast fall's kidnap crisis were advance 'signs that a choice cannot be put off much long- r." His party was the "big win- ner" in the election, winning more than 23 per cent of the popular vote, although it picked ip only seven seats in the leg- islature. The Liberals obtained 45 per cent, the Union Na- lonale 20 per cent and the Ireditistes 11 per cent. Levesque said the terrorisl activities of last fall were ear ried out by young persons dis satisfied with the current elec :oral system. Under the circumstances o the crisis "one would have ex peeled a certain moderation or tehalf of the Trudeau govern ment in Ottawa and the Bour assa government in Quebe City. "Alis, the government reac tion was, on the contrary laiked by excessive violence.1 Levesque said the crisis ha the consequence of "dramatic ally weakening the Quebec go eminent, especially in its rela tions with the federal govern ment." "It was the federal govern ment that carri.J the ball; alone controlled the army, alone could liberate the prison- ers, it alone controlled radi and television, even thiough was an essentially Quebe problem. "It was a hard lesson for all those who beliwwi it possible to make the Quebec govern- ment the principal instrument of Quebec's destiny while re- maining in the Canadian Con- federation."

But the commission docs have au- thority over cable television companies which wire up pri- vate homes, and cable opera- tors are unhappy with this dif- ference in treatment. Robert Short, president of the Canadian Cable Television As- sociation, argues that freedom from regulations gives MATV systems an unlair advantage over cable companies. He sug- gests the commission relax its regulations to allow cable op- erators to compete on a more equal footing. Mr. Short said a large MATV system in a Toronto apartment development carries advertis- ing on one of its channels. The CRTC has refused to allow ca- ble operators to sell advertis- ing with the exception of a few smaller systems where it is permitted as an experiment. DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A.
