ENGINEERING MO,TOR RALLY

When reading the newspapers one cannot help but notice the numerous articles regarding juvenile delinquency. It is not unusual to see a newspaper headline condemning modern day adolescents as “tough punks, roughnecks”, and ENGINEERING WEEKEND ALSO INCLUDES the like. The fact that in the same community where this so-caIled “tough punk” is doing his dirt there happens to be FRANKFURTER FROLICS, WATER ATHLETICS many young people doing useful work with the Y.M.C.A., Y.W.C.A., Boy Scouts and other social service groups goes and SEMI-FORMAL “SEA-SIDE ‘61” unnoticed.

AN ANGRY YOUNG MANHAS COMEANDGONE David Gauthier, lecturer in Philosophy at U of T, last Thursday tried to sell us on the idea of nuclear disarmament for Canada. He based his argument on the following points : 1. In order to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons, Canada would be in a more influential position to prevent this spread if she refused to accept nuclear weapons herself. 2. The possiblity of nu&lear war becomes geometrically greater with respect to the number of counties in possession and /or in control of nuclear weapons. That is, more suspicion is created, and the possibility of an accident or a “madman” in control is greater. .3. Accepting weapons from the U.S. under their control would make us appear as a military satellite in, many foreign eyes. To many we are already an economic satellite of the U.S. s4. At this time it would be hopeless to expect that the Utiited States would reduce her nuclear armament and since she already has an overkill capacity factor of five, Canada’s responsibility lies in the positive task of creating world peace. 5. Canada’s resources are better spent in strengthening conventional forces which would be at the U.N.‘s disposal, and in increasing the amount of material and teehnieal aid given to underdeveloped countries. The meeting was interest-

ing in that the discussion period was three times longer than his half h.our talk. Mr. Gauthier seemed to bz able to either rebut or eireumlocute the ideas \ from the audience. The one important question which he failed to answer to my satisfaction was “What would you do if the Russians attacked.” In this respect, I think Gauthier the philosopher and Gauthier the man are two different people. It is hoped that we might obtain a spe+ker who can give a strong e&e for Canada accepting nuclear arms. Any suggestions toward this or any other topic would be welcomed by Prof. K. Piekarski, Mechanical Engineering Dept., or J. Ronbaek, 4B Eleet:ieal, faculty and student representatives respectively of the Discussion Group sponsored by The University of Waterloo Unitarian Club. P.S. To get an idea of what kind of havoc is caused by an unbalance in military and economic policy read “The Staggering Problem” by Robert Coughlan, Life, 28 July, 1961. Jim Ronbaek

THE Published SPRAWLING CITIES Waterloo, by T. A. Rushton

Students at the U of W have the unique opportunity of watching two growing organizations at the same time, the birth of a dynamic new University and the growth of Ontario’s second Metro city. Three eommunities in this region, Kitehener-Waterloo and Breslau, Preston, Hespeler, Galt and the Guelph ~ are roughly same size, and expanding rapidly. These communities are in roughly the same position that Toronto Was 30 years ago, but whereas Toronto dominated its area, no one community can be said to dominate this area. Waterloo - Wellington politicians unfortunately accept the apparently inevitable merging of boundaries and the problems of creating another Metro city in the province. But is this really inevitable? Or really desirable? Some of the richest farmlands in the Province would disappear into this Metro maw, and the end would be a huge urban complex devoid of any green-belt areas. If it is to be stopped it must be stopped now by vigorous provincial government action ~ remedies that will interfere with private property rights, discrimination and the desire of the munieipalities to expand. But is not government the restriction of individual desires for publie good? Why should municipalities be allowed to expand at the expense of pleasant living conditions of its citizens? Municipalities should be allowed to acquire all the fringe lands, squeezing out the leapfrogging speculators and subdividers. Then the municipalities could work together with private enterprise to achieve a controlled orderly growth. Now, one of the biggest problems in the K-W district is the spread of unserviced subdivisions that are going to require sewer and water mains at some time in the future.

An alternative to munieipal aequi;ition of the land itself is the control over the right to develop the land, with the owners being paid compensation for the restrictions placed on his aetivities. Property taxation can also be a planning tool, for example if the farmer who is not permitted to subdivide is given tax relief, rather than being taxed as a potential subdivider. The municipality itself can take a positive approach to development by providing services in the areas in which ‘it wishes to see building and witholding them from the less desirable sections.

The Waterloo-Wellington district, the Golden Triangle of Ontario, can stop or redirect this cancerous blight if they are really determined to do so. The next few years at the U of W should prove very interesting to those civil Engineering students interested in Municipal Planning to see the outcome of the growth of this district.
