Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE IETHBRIDGE HBRAID frldoy, Auguil ST, 1970- Canada Keeps Hands Off OTTAWA (CP) The govern- ment has decided not to gel in- volved in the legal question of whether Canada has sover- eignty over a floating ice island on which an American was slain July JG, an external affairs spokesman said Thursday. The U.S. government arrested Mario Escamilla, 33; and re- turned him to the U.S. for Wai on a charge of murdering Benny Lighlsy, 31, a weather station technician. Llghtsy was killed on T-3, a 28-square-mile ice slab floating in the Arctic Ocean. It now is about 200 miles west of Elles- mere Island. "We have decided not to force the issue of sovereignty to avoid the possibility of putting Canada in the position of seeming in- terfere with the course of jus- tice simply for the sake of an unsettled and very complicated legal the external affairs spokesman said. OCCUPIED BY U.S. The spokesman said the ice island has been occupied by Americans since at least 1952. There is a problem as to whether the ice slab is consi dered equivalent to an island or a ship. If treated as a ship, it could come under international law and the country in which the ship is registered would have jurisdiction. As an island, the matter would fall under Jims- diction of the owning country. The spokesman said the gov- ernment informed U.S. authori- ties July 31 that Canada is re- serving its position on the sover- eignty issue. This was to safe- guard the Canadian position so that the ice island inciden would not be regarded as precedent.

Plants Told To Resume Production HALIFAX (CP) An in- dustrial inquiry commission into the bitter five-month strike of eastern Nova Scotia fishermen has recommended that the three idled plants resume production, "without discrimination" against the striking trawlermen. Judge Nathan Green of Hali- fax, appointed by the federal and provincial labor ministers, says in his report handed to the two ministers Thursday that the deepsea fishermen in the three affected ports should select their own four-man committees to discuss working conditions with the companies.
