TORONTO (CP) John Clement, minister of con- sumer affairs, said Tuesday the Ontario government plans to tighten restrictions on advertising of alcoholic beverages, especially on radio and television. He told reporters that new regulations will reduce the number of hours advertisers will be able to use to promote alcoholic drinks on the air. Now, the maximum is 78 hours a year. Mr. Clement said he also plans to restrict the type of advertising, cutting down especially on so-called life- style ads which suggest that people have more fun if they consume a certain kind of beer. The proposed changes would be made through amendments to the advertising code of the Liquor Control Board of On- tario, which imposes man- datory controls on liquor advertising. Mr. Clement's remarks Tuesday were made as a follow-up to a speech he gave at a closed doors meeting withj the Brewers' Association of Canada at Ottawa. He told the brewers he wants to see more educational programs dealing with drink- ing and also said they should offer weaker beer at lower prices to try to reduce the es- timated four per cent of Canadians who have serious drinking problems. WANTS THREE PERCENT He suggested that brewers produce draught and bottled beer with a three-per-cent alcohol content. The weaker brew would be offered as an alternative, and regular strength mally about five per cent alcohol by would be sold. Mr. Clement's decision to restrict ads follows a threat by federal Health Minister Marc Lalonde to do the same thing. Mr. Clement said the in- dustry is also concerned about the problem of alcoholism and he expects co-operation from brewers, vintners and dis- tillers. The minister, a beer drinker himself, said the idea of weaker beer may find op- position, but he thinks it will be helpful. He was adamant on one thing, so-called malt liquors, beers with a higher-tiian-usual alcohol con- tent, won't find their way into Ontario. Although the stronger with about 6.25 per cent alcohol by sold in other provinces, "they foe sold here while 1 have anvthing to say i1." the minister >r onrludcri. PRECIPITATED STRIKE BAS1XGSTOKE.

Wednesday, September 25, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 Trudeau opens meeting of finance ministers OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau opens a conference of Commonwealth finance ministers here today, with inflation and its import on underdeveloped countries expected to be key topics. Following a short ceremonial session the finance 27 of the 33 Commonwealth coun- tries are represented at the ministerial intoa closed meeting. For John Turner, who as host finance minister is conference chairman, the meeting provides an oppor- tunity to continue his efforts to promote international co- operation in fighting in- flation. Mr. Turner visited Washing- ton, London, Paris and Bonn earlier this month for meetings with his counter- parts and he has urged that other countries not adopt nationalistic positions in deal- ing with inflation. Trade and aid affecting less developed members of the Commonwealth is expected to be an important area for this conference as many of the poorer countries have been hit particularly hard by higher fuel bills. Denis Healey, British chan- cellor of the exchequer, will not be at the meeting because of election campaign com- mitments and this likely will affect talks on relations between the Commonwealth and the European Economic Community. Britain is a member of the EEC and the Labor government has been renegotiating terms of membership. The Commonwealth finance ministers meeting has regularly been held the week prior to annual meetings of the International Monetary Shylocking operations profitable MONTREAL (CP) Shylocking operations in the past 12 months brought the Montreal underworld an es- timated million profit on a capital investment of million.

He said "the victims are for the most part, honest citizens, who. finding themselves in dire financial with a poor credit to shylocks to get quick, easy- loans on a no-questions asked basis." He said while the terms ap- pear easy, the borrower can hardly ever get out of debt to the shvlocks.
