Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, April 25, W4-THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD-3 Government plans legislation aimed at profiteering OTTAWA (CP) The government will introduce a bill in a few days aimed at preventing companies from making wind- fall profits at consumer expense, Prime Minister announced Wednesday. "It's a pretty general he told reporters after his an- nouncement in the Commons. "It's not, in itself, an anti-inflation bill. We ve dealt with that in other ways___This is an anti-profiteering, anti-goug- ing bill." He said the measure would apply generally and would not be limited to specific commodities. It also would be retro- active in some cases. "Those who have profiteered will be set back from profit- eering. They will have to pay some compensation." The announcement appeared to meet at least one of four key demands by the New Democratic Party for continued support of the minority Liberal government. NDP Leader David Lewis has said he wants an excess profits tax, stiff pripe control legislation, a six-per-cent interest rate ceiling on mortgages and a two-price system for basic, domestically produced commodities. The bill may satisfy the first, and possibly second, NDP de- mands. But Mr. Lewis was noncommittal. "I'm not prepared in advance to greet it with he said. "If all we get is this bill and one or two other cosmetics, it will not be acceptable." Mr. Trudeau indicated the bill will contain some price- control aspects, but would be designed primarily to stop profiteering. He said the government has rejected the NDP demand for a national prices review board with the power to roll back un- justified price increases. "This is too simple to be good. We had to provide another mechanism which would permit an independent review of, say, the food prices review board. "It can't be a whim. It will have to be established in eco- nomic terms defined by law." He was asked whether the bill is designed to shore up apparently eroding NDP support, in view of the remarks recently by Mr. Lewis. "I don't know what he (Mr. Lewis) said yesterday, but it's unlikely that overnight we would have whipped up a bill." He said his announcement follows stated government policy of intervening when clear evidence of profiteering exists. But he gave no specific instances where it had happened. Asked whether the government will meet NDP demands on' mortgages and two-price commodities, he replied: "Is that all he (Mr. Lewis) asked Mr. Trudeau re- plied. "I'd be very happy to look at them you just give me a copy." Dateline Alberta Youth dies in tunnel EDMONTON (CP) An Edmonton youth died when trapped in a tunnel which caved in on him while he was digging with two friends. Timothy Poulin, 14, was dug out by a passer-by and fire officials gave him heart massage and mouth to mouth resuscitation but he was dead before reaching hospital. Darrell Hackman, 13, and another friend, Gordon Shinkaruk, 18, had been digging the tunnel in hillside. They planned to use it as a clubhouse for a group they were forming. Airport decision soon EDMONTON (CP) A final decision on the site of a new satellite airport for Edmonton is expected in about two weeks, officials of the ministry of transport said here. The airport, to cost about million, is expected to be located near Villeneuve, 20 miles northwest of downtown Edmonton. Officials propose to build the satellite within two years to reduce congestion at the Edmonton Industrial Airport, which is located close to downtown. The satellite field would provide room for recreational and training flights. Financial aid likely EDMONTON (CP) Financial assistance probably will be provided by the provincial government to Peace River region farmers who suffered crop losses last fall, a director of Unifarm said Wednesday. Henry Kaiser of the provincial farm organization said Agriculture Minister Hugh Horner told a meeting details of any government aid would be announced only when the subject is introduced at the legislature.

Patty reviles father and her boyfriend SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst reviled her father Wednesday as a and her fiance as a "clown" and de- clared she willingly robbed a bank with her Symbionese Liberation Army comrades. "To those people who feel I am brainwashed I see no need to further defend my position. I am a soldier in the people's she said in a taped recording received by San Francisco police through an intermediary. The tape was received by community relations director Rodney Williams, along with half of Miss Hearst's driver's licence A Hearst family spokesman said the message was authentic, and Miss Hearst's father said he still believes she is speaking under coercion. "At no time did any of my comrades point their guns at me. We forced the corporate state to help finance the said Miss Hearst, who was photographed by bank cameras carrying an automatic carbine in the April 15 bank robbery. The SLA members escaped with and shot and wounded two persons. Miss Hearst, 20, has been named a material witness in the robbery. There was no im- mediate comment from the FBI on whether her apparent admission of responsibility Hastings campaign chairman CALGARY (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau announced Wednesday the appointment of Calgary senator Earl Hastings as Liberal campaign chairman in Alberta for the next federal election. Senator Hastings, who held the same post in the 1968 federal election, will be part of the National Liberal Campaign Committee, a spokesman for the prime minister said in a telephone interview from Ottawa. The Liberals now have no elected members of parliament in Alberta which returned 19 Progressive Conservatives in the Oct., 1972 election. Senator Hastings has been involved in prison and parole reform during the last five years and is a member of the Senate legal and constitutional affairs, committee studying the parole system in Canada. would change her status in the case. "To the clowns who want a personal interview with Vincent Hallinan (a Steven Weed (her fiance) and the pig Hearsts, I prefer giving it to the people in the she said. "It's absurd to think that I could surface to say what I am saying now and be allowed to freely return to my comrades. The enemy still wants me dead." By THE CANADIAN PRESS Results of country-wide bal- loting by airport firefighters on the government's latest wage offer will not be known until later today, officials of the Public Service Alliance said Wednesday. Spokesmen for the alliance, which represents the fire- fighters in their contract dis- pute with the federal treasury board, said results of an anticipated votes cast have been delayed by the postal strike and reduced air services. Meanwhile, in Montreal, a threatened strike by members of the Canadian Air Line Pilots Association (CALPA) was averted late Wednesday when a spokesman said strike action had been rejected by the association's board of directors. CALPA president J. B. Wright said in a statement, however, the association will seek an injunction against Air Canada forcing the airline to abide by its collective agree- ment. The airline has temporarily laid off of its employees, among them 700 pilots, until the firefighters' dispute ends. Captain Wright said the board of directors decided against strike action because it would only compound labor unrest and would not be in the best interests of the travelling public or fellow employees. A spokesman for firefighters in Montreal said the men would return to work if the government was to appoint a mediator to reopen negotiations. Early indications across the country show the vote will go against accepting the proposed contract, which offers the federal firefighters salary increases of over a 26-month contract. The men currently earn annually. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Capitol Furniture Bldg.
