Taxi company accused CALGARY (CP) A Calgary taxi company is facing charges that it violated the human rights of a prospective employee by refusing to hire him because his hair was too long. Killarney Taxi Co. Ltd. was called before the Human Rights Commission to explain why it refused to hire the man.

Gov't action explained EDMONTON (CP) The provincial government turned down a request for million to expand facilities at Calgary's McMahon Stadium because "the government believes professional sports should be able to stand on its own merits." Dave Russell, municipal affairs minister, said Wednesday. "The majority of the money requested by the McMahon Stadium committee would go towards adding 7.000 seats and covering 3.000 seats. This expenditure would not be of any direct benefit to amateur sport in Calgary." The minister said in a prepared release that the denial of funds should not be compared with the government's grant towards Century Calgary celebrations in 1975.
