Defence lawyer Cameron Steer of Edmonton mado the statement during hi.s summa- tion of the five-day trial. The jury of five women and seven men retired to study the evidence. Latta. 43, Is charged with the June 13 shooting death of the "fi-year-old Edmonton travel agent and separate school beard trustee. Neville, shot twice in the hack and once in the chest, was found in his downtown office on a Sunday after a pedestrian spotted his body through a win- dow. Mr. Steer asked the jury to remember that no one saw who killed Mr. Neville. j "Emnity and hate" are very strong motives for murder, but in tlie defendant's case, there is not, a "shred of enmity or hate in fact the evidence points the other way." he said. Mr. Neville's wife. Karon, had testified that nothing was said against Latta in her home, ho said. "I submit from Mrs. Nev- ille's evidence that it was com- j mon for Mr. Neville to as.w date with women other than his wife she apparently was forgiving of his lapses." Mrs. Neville had testified that she had been aware of the oth- er women in her busand's life and at one point had filed for divorce. But, "we came back together he was a fine husband and father." Mr. Smith read a letter from Latta to Mr. Neville that was seized from the accused's home in Kingston at the time of his arrest, about a week after the murder. i A reference to the "personal matter you phoned me about" referred to a telephone call by Mr. Neville to Latta concern- ing a blackmail attempt. An Edmonton police officer earlier testified that a man identifying himself as Latta had told him, in a long-distance telephone conversation shortly after the murder, of a black- mail attempt on Mr. Neville save depots I'.U'I, JACKSON Ili'riilil Ottawa Hnifail OTTAWA John Diefenbak- w wants the federal gov- ernment to help small commu- nities arctic ilieir cases against "wholesale closure" ot rail sta- tions on tile I'rairies. The former prime minister told the House of Commons that the government should consider providing smaller communities with expert counsel to argue their cases against Canadian National awl Canadian Pacific plans to scrap Prairie stations en masse. A high topic at the recent Progressive Conservative an- nual meeting here was that small communities lack the ex- pertise to battle against skilied executive lawyers in cases such as this. Mr. Diefenbaker, MP for Prince Albert, Sask., said pre- liminary meetings by represen- tatives of tlie Canadian trans- port commission are already taking place with CN and CPR officials who want to axe many small Prairie points. U.S. pressure resisted OTTAWA (CP) The govern- ment's announcement that it will defer for at least two years any derision on a U.S. com- pany's request to flood a British Columbia valley lor power pin-- poses appears on the sin-face a local or regional affair. But authorities here say it is national. Moreover, it may be an important skirmish in the fu- tures of Canadian sovereignty it- self. With its decision In the B.C. case, informants say, the fed- eral government Is fending off for the time being a United (States which wants Canadian resources, particularly hydro and water, but also petroleum and base minerals. The fending-off period is said to be designed for Ottawa to formulate energy policy for the decades policy which, basically, will be to ensure Ca- nadian needs are looked after fa Canada and the U.S. have been taUring about energy re- sources off and on for several years. These talks are sched- uled to resume next year after a temporary halt for a study of more-immediate economic prob- lems. One sources said the U.S. tends to operate from the posi- tion that it has no energy re- sources left to speak of and is classing Canada's resources as "North American" or "conti- nental." Some authorities have said Canada's key question for the rest of tihe century will be how Canada, a country of 20 million, can hold off the U.S., a country of 200 million, from taking what Canadian resources it needs. In recent years, the Seattle Light and Power Co. has been seeking to raise tlie Ross Dam in Washington State to obtain more hydro. This would cause additional flooding in the Skagit Valley of British Columbia. Tlie Canada-U.S. International Joint Commission, which exam- ines questions of boundary wa- ters, was handed the problem in April by Ottawa and Washing- ton for a quick review. It reported Friday that more study is needed on the problem of measures to mitigate the ef- fects of flooding of a prime rec- reational area and that such a study would require at least two years. The Canadian government grasped this recommendation immediately and thus put off for at least two years any deci- sion about raising the Ross Dam.
