Civil Liberties Association Raps Legal Aid In Canada OTTAWA (CP) - Legal aid In Canada is little more than "a ritual gesture on the road to equality," the Canadian Civil Liberties Association told the Senate poverty coramttee in a brief. In too many areas in the public welfare field, basic procedural fairness was violated, Damage Suit Filed TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - A $100,000,000 damage suit against Dow Chemical Co. and Wyandotte Chemical Co. for allegedly polluting Lake Erie, with mercury compounds was filed in U.S. District Court here by 37 fishermen. Ohio Gov. James A. Rhodes ordered commercial fishing baited Sunday because of what be called dangerous amounts of mercury pollution in the lake. The order was against commercial fishing, not sport fishing. The fishermen filing suit were from western Lake Erie ports including Port Clinton and Sandusky. Rhodes said his ban on fishing could last two months or longer, and one commercial fisherman said a long ban could put commercial fishing companies out of business. Ohio Attorney General Paul W. Brown is expected to file a similar suit against Dow, of Sarnia, Ont., and Wyandotte of Detroit. Dow is located on the St. Clair River and Wyandotte on (be Detroit River, both of which eventually flow into Lake Erie. Brown said the mercury pollution could wipe out the jobs of some 800 persons, mostly Lake Erie commercial fishermen. Even the right of appeal did not conform to prevailing standards of appellate jurisprudence. "One of the most glaring inadequacies in the administration of welfare law is the widespread ignorance of the rights and duties created by the law," the association said. "Too many welfare applicants and recipients don't know their rights and are reluctant to exercise them. Too many welfare administrators don't know their limitations and are eager to exceed them." The association recommended that the federal government initiate a large-scale public education program on welfare law. Looking generally at the poor and Canadian law, the association said it is clear that poverty can subvert the goal of equality. "Meagre resources cannot purchase costly services. Yet costly legal services are indispensable to equal legal rights." WANTS STANDARD The association said the first major objective should be the equalization of legal aid services throughout the country. A system of federal grants was needed to insure that everywhere in Canada there was subsidized legal aid at the level now available in Ontario. The association said that during the year ended March 31, 1969, Ontario incurred a set cost of more than $7,000,000 to subsidize legal fees in almost 50,000 cases-both criminal and civil. It also said that for the 1969 fiscal year, Manitoba allocated $160,000 for legal aid, a substantial increase from the $40,000 allocated the previous year. Nova Scotia was spending about $25,000 a year on legal aid. New Brunswick did little more than pay the defence of poor prisoners indicted or committed for trial in a restricted number of serious cases. USE INCOME GAUGE Eligibility for government-subsidized legal aid in Saskatchewan required an annual income amounting to less than $2,000 for unmarried persons and $2,500 for married persons, "starvation eligibility requirements." The association also said reform of bail laws is needed since persons presumed innocent by the law could suffer long periods of incarceration essentially because they were too poor to buy their freedom. It also called for: -�A federal-provincial investigation of the legal right of effective non-violent dissent in Can ada. -Extension of tax-deductible status to pressure groups for the poor. -Consideration of independ ent machinery to provide public funds for organizations attempting to relieve poverty. Publishers Challenged Bv CIA OTTAWA (CP) - The Cam dian Library Association has challenged publishers to put up the money for an objective study of their claims that library use of photocopy devices is undermining the economic incentive to write and publish books. "We believe the onus now is on the publishers and authors to demonstrate feat the public interest is served by monopoly restraint on freedom of access to information," the association said in a brief submitted to a parliamentary committee considering possible revision of copyright law. Copying can be successfully defended tinder the present law as "fair dealing," the brief maintains. GOREN ON BRIDGE Wt CHARLES H. GOREN .
