Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesdsy, April 30, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 3 Datollno Alborta Train service to end EDMONTON (CP) Northern Alberta Railways (NAR) will discontinue its passenger train operation between Edmonton and Dawson Creek, B.C., June 1 because of consistent revenue losses on the line, Ken Perry said Monday. Mr. Perry, NAR general manager, said the line has been "operating at a loss for over 30 years." "We used to have a full train running six days a week. In recent years we've experimented witii schedules and types of trains including a railiner but we've still lost money." Farms without power CALGARY (CP) Calgary Power Ltd. said Monday that as many as farms may still be without electricity as a result of last weekends severe snowstorm in southern Alberta and that it may take up to two weeks before full power is restored in all areas. The company is co- operating with Alberta Disaster Services in seeking temporary power for many dairy farms which require electricity for their operations. Conviction is upheld EDMONTON (CP) The appellate division of Alberta Supreme Court Monday upheld the conviction of an Edmonton man who was found guilty of killing his ex- wife.

The occasion was the first Canadian meeting of the World Liberal Union, a loose organization of predominantly European liberal parties set up in 1947. Liberal representatives of about 20 countries will discuss world issues here this week. Jeremy Thorpe, British Lib- eral leader, told reporters that the visit of European liberals to Canada was analogous to Moslems making a pilgrimate to Mecca. The reference was to the Liberal Party of Canada's electoral success in winning 16 of 22 federal elections since 1896, a success not approached by any European liberal parties. In an opening address to the conference, Mr. Trudeau dis- cussed liberal philosophy, defining a liberal as a man of the left who tends to be a reformer but not a revolutionary. Turning to domestic issues, Mr. Trudeau said legislation passed in 1970 to assert Cana- dian jurisdiction in the Arctic Ocean environment might ap- pear to contravene the classi- cally liberal doctrine of free- dom of the seas. "My reply is that liberalism remains a great political faith because it has always evolved as forcefully as the world realities it must deal with." The legislation was necessary because "freedom of the seas" has' too often Two rescued from plane crash site BUTTE, Mont. (CP) A young Canadian man and woman were rescued early Monday from the mountain timberline crash site of a single engine plane in which Michael Roy Nagel, 19, the pilot, and his cousin, Terrence Nagel, 19, both of Regina, died Saturday. The' survivors were Sandy Hill 18, and Matthew Rene Wassill, 20, both also of Regina. They suffered multiple fractures, cuts and possible frostbite but hospital officials listed their condition as satisfactory. The beeping of a locator device put on the airplane just before it left on its ill-fated flight Saturday led searchers to the survivors. The four young Regina residents were en route from Butte to Ogden, Utah, when the plane went up a box canyon in heavy timber, 15 miles south of Butte. An Army National Guard helicopter brought the survivors here and an ambulance took them to hospital. become "license of the the licence to pollute. Mr. Trudeau said his government believes this concept of stewardship or coastal waters should be extended globally, as a responsibility of all coastal states. He was supported by Hilmar Baunsgaard, leader of a liberal group in the Danish Parliament and a former prime minister, who later told reporters he agrees with Mr. Trudeau's position on ocean jurisdiction and believes that most Danes do also. Other prominent delegates in attendance included Walter Scheel, West Germany's foreign minister; Gaston Thorn, Luxembourg's foreign minister; Gunnar Helen, Swedish Liberal leader; and Dr. Pekka Tarjanne, Finnish communications minister. Man drowns while fishing BANFF (CP) Reginald John Hobbs, 68, of Banff drowned Monday when he apparently slipped and fell into the Bow River near the Banff Springs Hotel while fishing. OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment introduced Monday a bill designed to halt profiteering by freezing or rolling back prices and forcing guilty companies to make refunds or turn over unjust profits to the government. Fines up to and prison sentences up to two years are proposed for corporate directors or officers convicted under the bill's provisions. Consumer Affairs Minister Herb Gray called for quick passage of the bill by the Com- mons. But he declined to say whether there are any imme- diate plans to use it. "This is standby he told reporters. "I'm not saying at this point what areas the government may decide that intervention is warranted." The bill, drafted as an amendment to the Combines Investigation Act, would replace the existing restrictive trade practices commission with an expanded trade practices commission. Mr. Gray said the proposed powers, except in emergency cases, would be used only when reports of profiteering are passed on to the government by agencies such as the food prices review board. The cabinet would review reports received to determine whether a price increase that would affect all or a large number of Canadians was likely to occur in one or more articles. If so, the restrictions proposed in the bill would be invoked. Applicable for a one-year period and renewable for a further six months, the bill would allow the government to: a base price for the ar- ticle or articles involved. whether any dis- tributors should be exempt. Determine a ''customary" gross profit margin that could not be exceeded. anyone dealing in a product in question to give the government 30 notice be- fore raising prices above the base price. Mr. Gray said the latter re- striction would give the government power to enforce a temporary price freeze. News releases said the bill would not apply to agricultural produce in an unprocessed state "when owned or sold by a primary producer" or to unprocessed fishery products "when owned or sold by a fisherman." Mr. Gray did not explain what calculations the cabinet .will use to determine base prices or customary profits. He indicated each case will be dealt with individually. Information distributed by his department included, for explanation purposes, a hypothetical case of the kind the cabinet might face if the bill is approved. The product was not named but, for calculation purposes, the base price was given as the price in effect on the day before cabinet intervention. Companies bound by the 30- day notice provision were those with annual gross sales in all products of more than million. And the customary profit margin was ruled to be the margin "that suppliers were realizing one year ago." After ordering a freeze, the cabinet would authorize the investigation and the research director of the combines investigation branch would hold an inquiry on the case involved. Evidence gathered would be presented at a hearing of the trade practices commission, where the suppliers in question would be represented. The commission could order subsequently that suppliers stop unjustified practices, roll back prices, make refunds to purchasers or, when impractical to do so, pay excess profits to the government. Mr. Gray said the bill in- cludes measures to prevent companies from taking advan- .tage of inquiries that run more than 30 days. One section empowers the attorney-general to seek an interim injunction to extend the investigation period when necessary. He said the bill meets a gov- ernment promise to prevent companies from piling up "unearned windfall profits at the expense of the people of Canada."
