Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Something may be brewing in Quebec MONTREAL (CP) The last two 0 c I o b e r E have brought spectacular and violent events In Montreal, and Quebecers are wondering whether the coming monlh will pass quietly. Indications are that some- thing is brewing, despite Justice Minister Jerome Choquelte's statement to reporters last weekend that he is "optimistic that peace is going to reign in Quebec." Two years ago, Montreal po- lice staged a one-day strike Oct. 7, and a wild riot ensued, caus- ing Die shooting ol 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. Tlie crisis began Oct. 5 with the kidnapping of James Rich- ard (Jasper) Cross, British trade commissioner who was fr 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 hat asked Quebec Provincial Police lo investigate a series of theft of communications equipmen from 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 civil pro- tection 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 eo-ordinator of terrorist activi- ties last October was a well- cnown and respected Quebi and was still at large. An unexpected element en- tered the situation when notes purportedly from the FLQ said Pierre Valliercs, 33-year-old ac- :ivisl author, had gone under- ground rather than face new court appearances on charges of seditious conspiracy and coun- selling to murder and kidnap- ping. A warrant was issued after Vallieres missed a Sept. 7 appearance.

Id 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. decision to be made in 70s ENTERTAINING NIGHTLY at the STARTING MON., SEPT. 20th "HEARTACHES RAZZ BAND" PARIS (CP) Rene Lcves- que, leader of the separatist Parti Quebecbis, is quoted in a French magazine as saying that 1970 marked the start of a decade in which Quebec will either obtain its sovereignty or Wend permanently into Confed- eration. says in a 12-page article in the quarterly maga- zine Preuves that independence would allow Quebec lo escape the dangers of both terrorism and enslavement to the federal government. He said the provincial elec- tion of April, 1970, in which Premier Robert Bourassa's Li- berals won 72 of 108 seats, and last fall's kidnap crisis were advance 'signs that a choice cannot be put off much long- er." 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 per cent, tl.o Union Na- tion ale 20 per cent and the teditistes 11 per cent. Levesque said the terrorist activities of last fall were car- ried out by young persons dis- satisfied with the current elec- toral system. Under the circumstances of the crisis "one would have ex- pected a certain moderation on behalf of the Trudeau govern- ment in Ottawa and the Bour- assa government in Quebec City. "Alls, the government reac- tion on Hie contrary, marked by excessive Levesque said the crisis had the consequence of "dramatic- ally weakening the Quebec gov- ernment, especially in its rela- tions with the federal govern- ment." "It was the federal govern- ment that carri.j the ball; it alone controlled the army, it alone could liberate the prison- ers, it alone controlled radio and television, even though it was an essentially Quebec problem. 'It was a hard lesson for all those who believed it possible lo make the Quebec govern- ment the principal instrument of Quebec's destiny while re- maining in the Canadian Con- federation."

These master antenna televi- sion MATV systems are not regulated by the CRTC and can ignore commission policy. But [lie 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 unfair advantage over cable companies. He sug- I gests the commission relax its regulations to allow cable op- erators lo compete on a more equal fooling. Mr. Short said a large MATV system in a Toronto apartment development carries advertis- ing on one of its channels. The CRTC has refused lo 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.
