I A : m -e. ,t.v. A2 THE OTTAWA CITIZEN SATURDAY, APRIL 4, 1987 nftBE&QHQd nam page Time From page A1 story: MLA calls time out on Liberal's claim to clock change Toronto MPP fired off his own release informing reporters he'd be available in his office to "claim full credit" for the bill. "And by the way," the release jokingly adds, "his (the minister's) outrageous and deranged attempt at a publicity grab notwithstanding, Vince Kerrio had less than nothing to do with the issue." However, any voters angry at losing an hour's sleep Sunday should feel free to consider Kerrio responsible for the change, McClellan offered. Known as one of the wittiest members in the legislature, McClellan later told reporters he was glad his verbal jab at Kerrio caught their attention. He said he's just pleased his bill finally is being put into effect. "We live in a cold northern climate and anything that makes sunlight available to people after school and after work in their leisure time when they can actu-ally enjoy it I think is worthwhile." The time change also affects Quebeckers as every other province, with the exception of Saskatchewan which has the same time year-round, has moved with Ontario to the new system. rjeathei Snow turning to rain by evening.

"It's in the Martin Luther tradition," said council policy chairman John Trent, referring to the German theologian who nailed his 95 theses protesting papal policy on the door of a Wittenberg church in 1517. On Sunday, the protests take on a more festive air. First, some 3,000 Quebec farmers and maple sugar producers, accompanied by labor union members, will march from Hull across the Interprovin-cial Bridge to Parliament Hill. There, Quebec union leaders such as Louis Laberge, Gerald La-rose and Yvon Charbonneau will give speeches condemning free trade, acid rain, the Star Wars defence system, racism in immigration, apartheid, NATO and U.S. intervention in Central America. Throughout the event, maple sugar producers in a mobile sugar shack will hand out cakes of maple sugar shaped like maple leaves. "We want to show that acid rain hurts mature trees and will eventually destroy the maple sugar industry," said Jean-Yves Tuthel, an official with the Quebec Farmers' Union. "Right now, we have free trade in acid rain. They are the producers and we are the consumers." The Quebec rally will wind up around 1 p.m., at which time the Ottawa Summit Response Coalition, an ad-hoc umbrella of some 30 groups, will take over Parliament lawns. Organizer Fox said he expects "two thousand people if it's cold and blustery and several thousand if it's nice weather." From the images on the television screen or newspaper photographs, the protest may appear to be a spontaneous gathering of like-minded people bent on making a spectacle of themselves for all the world to see. But Sunday's protest will not be a spur-of-the-moment affair. Since January, organizers have devoted hundreds of hours to organizing the event, working out technical logistics, encouraging interest groups to participate in a joint protest and collecting the donations that will pay for the $8,000 rally. In addition, the coalition, which has organized daily press conferences since Tuesday, has lined up 12 speakers who will denounce free trade for what they say would be its negative impact on jobs and and Canadian sovereignty. In an effort to make the Summit Response what Fox calls "the sort of demonstration where someone who's never been to one will feel comfortable," there will be magicians, hay wagon rides, balloons, face painting and larger-than-life puppets of Mulroney and Reagan. The magicians will make Canadian sovereignty disappear before your eyes, and the wagons will be called "Free Trade" on which you and your children can "be taken for a ride." Party From page A1 story: B.C. teenager dies after pill-popping party on the Canadian market. Evelyn Bergsteinsson, assistant director of nursing at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, said the 14 survivors were admitted over a three-hour period after Morgan was taken to hospital. Matthew Brown, a community services officer with the Salvation Army, said he saw Morgan at a drop-in centre Tuesday and "I thought he was just an average teenager." Ron Martens, Morgan's high school counsellor, said the 12th grader "was a pleasant student, nice to talk to." Corrections A story March 28 contained a reference to a police officer putting Senator Peter Stollery in jail on suspicion of drunkenness. This was an inaccurate reference to an incident in February, 1984, over which Stollery was charged with trespassing at the Ottawa police station. Stollery testified that he had only one or two drinks that evening and was sober. Stollery was acquitted on appeal of the trespass charge. A story March 24 incorrectly said seven teenagers convicted of causing a disturbance at National Defence headquarters were from the Ottawa area. In fact, one was from Kingston, four from Montreal and two from Toronto. A Neighborhood News story Thursday incorrectly said the Carleton Separate School Board at a March 23 meeting approved a plan to send Fallow-field-area elementary students to Our Lady of Peace School on Richmond Road in Bells Corners in 1987. In fact, trustees rejected the staff proposal and the students will continue to attend St. Patrick Catholic School on Larkin Drive in Barrhaven. The Citizen apologizes for the errors. An editorial wrongly suggested that OBE trustee John Smart opposed taking a year to establish a curriculum for human rights study because he felt students might forget the issue in that period. The Citizen apologizes for its misinterpretation of Smart's remarks. Ron and Nancy's visit has capital in a tizzy Mr. Jack Webster Saltspring Island, B.C. My dear Webster: The excitement here is practically palpable, as you can well imagine. Nancy and Ron are supposed to touch down in less than 24 hours and the town is going wild. Lome Nystrom has a new perm; Keith Penner had his roots touched up; and Tom McMillan has had a spare hair dryer installed in his Commons desk, just in case. The prime minister and the planning and priorities committee of cabinet were sequestered up at Meech Lake all day Thursday, practising how not to smile. I am reliably informed, though, that the plan to have Mila trip and spill herbal tea on Nancy during a photo opportunity has been cancelled. The feeling of the PMO was that having a weeping school-child present the president with a little acid-rain tree was probably the diplomatic limit. You know how fussy we are here about protocol. Lucille is pretty steamed, of course, that Ed's not going to get any time alone with the First Couple. As she put it: "He's the only one here with a decent American accent." As you will understand, Blue Eyes is taking all of this in stride. He's wearing his oldest George Raft suit and plans to eat peas off his fork with his left hand to explain cultural sovereignty to Ron. Don't believe those stories quoting anonymous Canadian officials as saying that nothing spectacular is going to happen at this summit. We already know that Ron's got a draft treaty in his pocket that will give us visiting privileges to the Northwest Passage on weekends and during school vacations. I don't want to leave you with the impression that the peoples' business has suffered because of this frenzy of pro-American activity. Your old pal Richard Hatfield was in town to appear before a parliamentary committee. Rumor has it that he will soon be making his annual visit to New Brunswick. The reason Richard keeps getting re-elected is that he's a politician who never breaks his word. As he said, "I told the voters of New Brunswick I would do my best for them, but I never promised them I would live there." Bumped into Dalton Camp the other day in the rotunda outside the Commons. He sends The Hation Marjorie Nichols his best. I'm not sure but I think he was chatting with that big painting of Sir John A. Mac-donald. You're absolutely right that the ship of state would be in real difficulty, if it didn't have Dalton's level-headedness to provide ballast. You asked about some of the B.C. refugees. Pat Carney's just back from Australia and she's casting about for a new assistant, preferably someone with an ideological allergy to fur. Tom Siddon's had a fantastic week. He was recognized by a porter at Ottawa airport and he thinks he should have the tainted tuna on the shelves in a deserving Third World country by summer. The reports that the Mulroney government intends to give the tuna to a less developed nation are erroneous. It's going to be a tied-aid arrangement. The receiving country will have to agree to take Don Blenkarn, the popular chairman of the House finance committee. Suppose you were as surprised as we are at that outburst in the Commons from Don Mazankowski, who told the opposition during an exchange about the latest allegations of scandal to "put up or shut up." I'm not suggesting for a moment that "Maz" didn't believe what he said, but you'll have to agree that it's hard to ignore the fact that he waited until Sheila Copps was gone on maternity leave before trotting out this bravado. Well, old friend, I can tell you that the frozen earth here actually moved at the news that you are hanging up your microphone. Blue Eyes says he hopes this doesn't mean that he can't keep using your studio as his West Coast address. I must say, though, I didn't really understand the PM's reaction. He said to tell you that "the opera's not over 'til the fat lady sings." The atmospherics here are unseasonally exceptional, which is to say that the precipitation continues to trend towards solidity.
