Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Board defends paroles in Nelles kidnap case OTTAWA (CP) - The National Parole Board today defended, at a Senate inquiry into the parole system, its decision to give early release to six young bachelors serving long prison terms for the Mary Nelles kidnapping in Toronto. "That was no ordinary case of kidnapping," said Chairman George Street. "That was a stupid prank. I don't think the victim was ever in danger." Senator Carl Goldenberg (L- Quebec), referring to the kidnappers as "fairly well off," asked pointedly whether six unemployed men would have been treated the same way. "Yes," Mr. Street said. "All people are certainly treated the sarnie." Mrs, Nelles is the daughter of Toronto millionaire Marshall Davis. She was 26 when kidnapped Sept. 7, 1969, from her Toronto home and held in a Muskoka cottage for $200,000 Illegal entry claimed OTTAWA (CP) - The Conservatives unsuccessfully sought a double-barrelled investigation Thursday into the immigration department. They asked for a Commons ormmittee scrutiny of alleged smuggling of aliens into the U.S. through Canada. And they asked Prime Minister Trudeau to launch an investigation into alleged non-compliance of overseas immigration officers with departmental directives. William" Skoreyko (PC-Edmonton East) said a report by the U.S. justice department and Federal Bureau of Investigation shows there is a substantial illegal movement of aliens through Canada to the U.S Immigration Minister Otto Lang said his department co-operates with U.S. authorities. The Montreal Star reported Wednesday that Mr. Lang had told an ethnic press group in Montreal that some immigration officers overseas sometimes ignore policy directives by not reading them ir dismissing them as propaganda. DECLINES REPLY Former prime minister John Diefenbaker asked Mr. Lang why he had said this. Mr. Lang did not reply. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield first introduced the subject and asked what is being done about lack of control over immigration officers abroad. Mr. Trudeau replied he would be glad to discuss the matter with Mr. Lang. It was the government's policy to make sure the public service carries out government policy. Mr. Stanfield then asked for a full investigation in light of the Montreal statement attributed to Mr. Lang. Mr. Trudeau said it happens every day in a civil service as big as Canada's that someone dees not carry out instructions to the letter. Gerald W. Baldwin presented a motion calling for the comsait-tee investigation into alleged smuggling of aliens. He said organized crime is mixed up into the "continuous illegal entry" of aliens into the U.S. through Canada. His motion was disallowed on procedural grounds. ransom, then released unharmed. The six men charged with her kidnapping were given sentences ranging from 10 to 15 years. Normally one-third of a sentence must be served before a prisoner becomes eligible for parole. This would have ranged from 40 months to four years for the Nelles kidnappers. But two were released last July after serving 20 months, of 10- and 11-year sentences; two more were to be released in November after serving two years of 12-year sentences; another will be released in February after serving two years of a 12-year sentence; and the sixth will be released next November after serving three years of a 15-year term. Mr. Street said the fact that all came from middle - class families, had jobs on parole, and had friends and relatives to help them, played a part in the board's decision to release them early. Senator Earl Hastings (L-Alberta) said the parole of the kidnappers had caused "bitterness and resentment" among other prisoners. Mr. Street, apparently referring to a letter from a prisoner at Joyceville Penitentiary in Ontario, said there was "some criticism by a person who killed one and maimed another," and now expected the board to parole him. "I'd say he'd be lucky to get out at all," Mr. Street said, without referring to the prisoner by name. The letter, published in a newspaper this week criticized the board for choosing six young bachelors for early release while hundreds of other first offenders, many with wives and children on welfare, were refused. Mr. Street said about 10 per cent of those paroled are released before they had served one-third of their sentence. Sometimes judges recommended quick parole in cases where offences didn't seem to justify mandatory minimum sentences called for in the Criminal Code, Mr. Street said. Early parole might also come in cases where a young prisoner was going to school or where a job might be lost if the normal rule was applied. Pattern Studded tire law must be obeyed RED LAKE, Out'. (CP) - Dr. Michael Gloster and 26 others Thursday pleaded guilty to violating an Ontario ban on studded tires and were given two weeks to comply with the law. Judge J. V. Gregeau, while expressing sympathy with the use' of studded tires, said the law, implemented this year barring the studs, must be obeyed. "I would have loved to have had studded tires yesterday," said the judge, who travelled over an icy road to reach this town. "That road was pretty slippery." "There are a lot of laws we don't agree with, but in the meantime, we should comply with the laws until we get them changed." HEADS PROTEST Dr. Gloster, chairman of a group called the Citizens' Committee for Studded Tires, said earlier he's prepared to go to jail rather than pay a fine, normally $20 and costs, but refused Thursday to say what he will do. Judge Gregeau, of Kenora, said he'll return in two weeks. "Those of you who have removed your studs, I'll deal with in one way. Those of you who haven't, I'll deal with in another."

Pharmacists on carpet TORONTO (CP) - The Ontario Council of Pharmacy charges of unprofessional conduct have been laid against a number of Ottawa pharmacists in connection with Parcost, the Ontario government's low-cost prescription program. The disclosure, made yesterday in a news release, did not indicate how many pharmacists were involved but said the charges of "improper conduct in the professional sense" were laid in regard to prescription prices. The release said those charged had been summoned to appear before the discipline committee of the college council and, if found guilty, their names "and the results of the hearing" will be published in a college news letter. This would be done after the statutory period for filing appeals had passed, probably about the end of February. The release said no further details will be made public until that time "since the matter is, in effect, before the courts."
