Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Nelles kidnapper granted parole OTTAWA (CP) Gary Adams, the last of the Mary Nelles kidnappers still in prison, has been granted parole more than six months early, the national parole board said to- day. Trudeau warned on taxation VANCOUVER (CP) F. E. Burnet, president of Cominco Ltd., has warned that over-tax- ation may kill the mining in- dustry. In address to shareholders at the company's annual meeting, the Cominco president warned against proposed provincial leg- islation which he said creates uncertainty about the industry's future and "adds immeasurably to the risk of doing business." "There is a limit to the ca- pability of the mining industry to pay taxes and related levies. Assessments beyond this limit may well kill the industry." He told shareholders a large segment of the community does not fully understand the role of a corporation in modern so- ciety. He said the company's annual report shows the corpor- ation in its "true role as a con- duit througs which benefits flow to society." Shareholders were told the company is willing to go ahead with construction of a copper smelter at Kiffiberley, B.C. and is awaiting only the resolution of problems with the provincial and federal governments. SAND GRAVEL ASPHALT TOLLESTRUP 4 7-3610 A SAND AND GRAVEL Construction Co. Ltd. PHONE 328.2702-327.3610 One of six Toronto men con- victed of the 1969 kidnapping ol Mrs. Nelles, Adams is expected to be released early next week, a board spokesman said. The delay is due to the time neces- sary to process the required pa- pers. "He was eligible for consider- ation this Nov. the spokes- man said. "But the others also were released before their nor- mal eligibility date and all have proven to be very good people on parole. "The board is satisfied that he (Adams) also is going to be a good risk." Adams has been serving a 15- year sentence at the Beaver Creek minimum security prison about 100 miles north of To- ronto. He and the five other men kidnapped Mrs. Nelles from her home near Claremont, Ont. Sept. 7, 1969, and demanded ransom. RELEASED EARLY Peter Burns and Ralph Cam- eron, both sentenced to 10 years, were released in July, 1971, after serving 20 months. John Rogan and Micael Whiteside were sentenced to 12 years and were released after two, in December, 1971. Richard Yeowart, a Toronto policeman also sentenced to 12 years, was released in Febru- ary, 1972. Adams dated Mrs. Nelles for a number of years before she married Henry Radcliffe Nelles in July, 1969. Mrs. Nelles was abducted from her home and was held for 39 hours. She was not in jured. She was released after the kidnappers agreed to accept The money was later recovered in the Footes Bay area near Bala, Ont. Adams spent last year work- ing outside the prison camp, managing Rainbow Ridge ski resort which includes a restau- rant and night dub. Many Bea- ver Creek prisoners work out- side as part of their rehabilita- tion. Since January, Adams has been working on bush gangs after requesting to be returned to Beaver Creek. He apparently plans to return to the printing business in Toronto or Montreal after his release. teeth Artist Elizabeth Magor presents four versions of "Kiss The moulds of whales' teeth cast in dental plaster to the Vancouver Art Gallery. U.S. trade deficit narrowed WASHINGTON (AP) The United States' trade deficit nar- rowed to million in March, the best month since September 1971, the commerce department reported today. The department said season- ally adjusted imports for March totalled billion and exports totalled billion. The March deficit of million was a considerable im- provement over the deficit for February of million when imports totalled billion and exports totalled billion. The department said the March rise in exports of million consisted largely of an increase of about million in aircraft deliveries and an ex- pansion of million in ship- ments of agricultural products. tt said the decline of mil- lion in imports during the month was in industrial sup- plies and consumer goods. While the figures were a dra matic improvement over Febru- ary, the department said they "should not be interpreted as indicative of underlying trends." Friday, April 27, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Idea of no release for murders rapped TORONTO (CP) The idea of murderers being kept in prison with no hope of release has met with opposition from a national group that assists pa- roled convicts. The Canadian Criminology and Corrections Association says several members of Par- mentioned by been wrong to rec- ommend such life sentences during the continuing debate on capital punishment. "We would strongly oppose such-a says a state- ment of policy the organization has sent to Ottawa and made public here today. The organization says it never can be predicted with any cer- tainty that a particular individ- ual cannot be rehabilitated and Premier Regan causes seal branding probe HALIFAX (CP) The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty said here today it was investigating the heat-branding of seals on Sable Island after receiving a complaint from Pre- mier Gerald Regan. During a visit Tuesday to the island, about 170 miles east of here, the premier said he saw a gray seal that had been branded. About seals have been similarly marked by the federal fisheries research board. "The very, very large brand certainly had the appearance of being very raw and Mr. Regan said. He added that the seal, unlike others nearby, did not scamper into the water when approached. Mr. Regan said he has asked SPC Director M. H. Sarty for a full report on the practice of branding. "We were'quite disturbed to see that this particular seal was obviously the premier said. "A very careful review of the practice should be made." Mr. Sarty said the fisheries research board Arctic biological station in Montreal has been asked for a report on the brand- ing it. carries out murderers "have an unusually high success rate on parole." The association also says that letting a prisoner know he has nothing to lose would just be asking for violent prison breaks. A five-year moratorium on the death penalty, restricting its use to the slayers of prison offi- cers and policemen, ended Dec. 29, 1972. There is to be a free vote in the House of Commons on future action on the matter. In its policy note to Ottawa, the association says that in- stead of getting stricter about paroles authorities should re- lease as many prisoners as pos- sible "and as early in their sen- tence as possible, consistent with the safety of the public." MANY SOCIAL WORKERS The association is an affiliate of the Canadian Welfare Coun- cil. Members include parole of- ficers, prison officials and chap- lains, criminologists, probation officers and social workers. It recommends reducing the jurisdiction of the national pa- role board and extending the ju- risdiction of provinces over prisoners in provincial in- stitutions. The group says some other agency should take over parole- board functions, such as its re- sponsibilities under the Crimi- nal Records. Act, and "the board would then be free to concentrate on one function It says the present system un- der which the federal govern- ment deals with violations of federal law and the provinces with provincial or municipal lawa can cause confusion and inequity. For example, the group says, a prisoner of a fed- eral prison may argue his case before a panel of the parole board, but not a prisoner of a provincial reformatory. The statement also recom- mends provisions for appeal from parole board decisions, but only on points of law and with leave from authorities. Shower, anyone? RUTLAND, Vt.
