Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta New design featured Edmonton site of new prison OTTAWA (CP) The federal government will build a modern medium-security penitentiary with a capacity for 180 convicts near Edmonton, the penitentiary service announced today. The prison, third medium-security institution in the province, is expected to be in operation early in 1976. Construction on the 125-acre site 12 miles northeast of the city near Highway 15 will start this winter. The prison will be the second of a new design started by the penitentiary service to fit with the living-unit concept of cor-' rections being emphasized by the penitentiary service. The other one now is under construction at Mission, B.C. The living-unit program means that each of five "families" of 32 prisoners will live in a separate house or living unit. They will deal with the same corrections and rehabilitation officers thus promoting better understanding between staff and inmates, the service says. The living-unit program is being instituted throughout the medium-security prisons but Mission and Edmonton will be the first prisons'built with the concept specifically in mind. Martin Bros.

(Associated Funeral Directors Service) A World-Wide Connection Australian soldiers train here OTTAWA (CP) A group of Australian soldiers is com- ing to Canada for training in peacekeeping operations. An announcement released simultaneously in Australia and here Friday said 42 Australian officers and men will take the training in Canada. Most of the men will be trained at Camp Petawawa, Ont., by peacekeeping veterans from the Royal Canadian Regiment. The training program follows talks last year and early this year between Defence Minister James Richardson and Lance Bar- nard, his Australian count- erpart. Canada has been sending 40- man groups to Australia since 1972 for jungle training. A defence department spokesman said peacekeeping training basically is "keeping your cool in hot situations." A first group of six Austral- ians will take part in staff briefings and discussions in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, London and Trenton, Ont. They will arrive Oct. 4 and leave Oct. 23. One officer and 35 men will arrive here Oct. 10 for train- ing at Petawawa until Nov. 13. Saturday, September 28, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-9 Eskimos claiming land CAMBRIDGE BAY, N.W.T. (CP) The Northwest Terri- tories' Eskimos are claiming land totalling more than square miles in- cluding oil, gas and mineral deposits. A preliminary land claims proposal presented here to the Inuit Tapirisat of Canada (ITC) outlined a claim of nearly twice the area demand- ed by the Indians and Metis of the Mackenzie Valley. Together the two claims in- volve virtually all of the Northwest Territories, about one third of the Canadian land mass. Like the Indians and Metis, the Eskimo claim covers an area which could be crossed by a pipeline bringing oil and gas to southern markets. Proposals for the pipeline should be filed next year about the same time the Eskimos expect to begin land settle- ment negotiations with Ot- tawa. In the absence of Eskimo treaties, the federal govern- ment gave the Eskimos more than to determine what lands they traditionally use and prepare their negotiating position. At last week's ITC meeting the group approved a 10-mem- ber negotiating committee which could begin talks with Ottawa as early as next spring. Peter Cumming, an Osgoode Hall law professor who worked on the ITC claim, said the major element in the claim is agreement by the Eskimos that land, not money, is the important con- sideration. The Cumming proposal calls for a three-fold benefit: to which the govern- ment would give the natives clear title, including mineral rights. already under devel- opment which the Eskimos would own and on which they would collect a share of taxes and royalties. Land to which the Eskimos and the government would share the rights. High School Students What is J.A.?
