Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE August A live and well Remember Boxcar, the colt named for his birth- place in the Thunder Bay freight yards where his mother was headed for the slaughterhouse last year? Mother and her coit were taken from the train to a riding stable and Boxcar, visibly thriving, now is the personal saddle horse of Alan and Bobby Danard. MOTHER'S JOURNEY Ottawa refuses to produce security documents Nixon tactics said used in Canada TORONTO Star says the federal cabinet and the RCMP have invoked a lit- tle-known form of executive privilege to deny security documents to the Federal Court of Canada. In a copyright story Friday from Montreal, the newspaper says the cabinet's action parallels the steps taken un- successfully by former United States president Richard Nix- on to withhold documents and tapes from the courts on grounds of national security. The story says the federal government appears to be us- ing a section of the Federal Court Act to refuse to produce any document if a cabinet minister attests that this would be injurious to inter- national relations, national defence or security. The newspaper says Ot- tawa's action became known when the federal demanded that the IRCMP turn over all pertinent documents relating to legal action for reinstatement of two former RCMP officers. The officers were identified as Donald McCleery. a former staff sergeant who played a prominent role in breaking the FLQ kidnapping case involv- ing British trade com- missioner James Cross in 1970; and former sergeant Gilles Brunei, a veteran security agent. Both men claim that the only reason given for their dis- missal last December was that they did not discontinue their friendship with Mitchell Bronfman, a nephew ol the founder of Distillers Seagram Corp. Mr. Bronfman is also presi- dent of Execaire. a large air- craft chartering and leasing service, and of Securex Ltd., a firm of private investigators. The newspaper says both Mr. McCleery and Mr. Brunei cur- rently work as investigators for Securex. Mr. Bronfman is quoted as saying the only reason he knows tor the RCMP action is his own life-long relationship with William Obront, a promi- nent witness at the Quebec po- lice commission inquiry into organized crime. The newspaper says the court's demand for five specific documents was re- jected in an affidavit signed Aug 13 by Postmaster- General Bryce Mackasey, acting solicitor-general at the time. Mr. Mackasey's affidavit claimed that introducing the documents in open court "would he contrary to public interest." Arthur Campeau, lawyer for the two dismissed officers, is quoted as saying he will at- tack the federal application for secrecy on the grounds that he cannot defend his clients unless he knows the basis of evidence against them. "It appears to me that if this application by the govern- ment is successful, the courts would become subservient to any federal cabinet minister who wishes to swear out an af- fidavit." he said. I. G. Whitehall, an Ottawa lawyer in the justice depart- ment, is also quoted as saying he could not elaborate because the application itself may be considered secret and 'certainly the reasons for the application would be as secret as the contents." The former RCMP officers had appealed to the court to hear their case in the interests of "natural justice" because of their claim they were given no hearing by the force. PORT HURON. Mich. (AP) Kararn Sabbagh, who is 106 years old and speaks no Eng- lish, travelled 8.000 miles from her native Lebanon to sit hy the bed of her ill son. "I dreamed my son was sick." she said Friday as her 69-year-old son. George, inter- preted "I had to come to him." Mrs. Sabbagh had not seen her son in four years, since she left Port Huron to return home. "She was old." George said "Mama wanted to die in her own country. So I took her hack to Lebanon.

Mrs. Sabbagh is petite, standing about four feet six inches, and has sparkling brown eyes. She wears a black scarf over her grey hair and touches her son's shoulder with wrinkled hands. "I'll stay until he's well." she said. An official at the conveles- cent home where George is staying the visii has helped because "he worries and he needs reassurance." "His mother has helped him. It's just hard to believe this wonderful woman." Fraternizing hassle BONN (APi Lieut. Mary Lou Follett and Pfc. James Johnson, who lived together in defiance of United States Army regulations against fraternizing between officers and enlisted personnel, are both quitting the military after being denied pro- motions.
