Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, December 19, 1974 Drinking water checked OTTAWA (CP) Federal health protection branch offi- cials will be working closely with United States health and environment agencies on an extensive study of the effects of asbestos fibres in drinking water, Dr. A. B. Morrison, head of the branch, said Wednesday. Tests on thousands of laboratory animals will begin early in 1975 and will establish in a relatively short time whether asbestos fibres in drinking water are a potential cause of cancer, Dr. Morrison said in an interview. He was commenting on statements attributed to an International Joint Commis- sion (IJC) report which ap- parently says asbestos fibres from industrial sources, are contaminating drinking water in communities in the United States. The Democratic Party member for Toronto High Park, claims the report, com- pleted in June, was not made public "for fear os scaring people to death." An IJC spokesman in Ot- tawa said the report will not be made public for at least one month. Dr. Morrison said his department has found up to 12 million asbestos fibres in samples of beer, wine and soft-drinks, but because the fibres are so small the average person would con- sume only a millionth of a gram of asbestos a day. However, he said asbestos dust inhaled into the lungs has been identified as a cause of lung cancer and that it is im- perative to establish whether abestos in drinking water is also a cause of cancer.

(CP) A decision to introduce the punishment to fit the crime system in Vernon next year by the British Columbia corrections branch has brought protests from managers of two of Vernon department stores. The program, would include shoplifters working in the store from which they stole. Al Seed, manager of Eaton's store here, said the proposal was ridiculous. "There's no way those peo- ple can integrate with the staff, work with them and have coffee with them. "If the courts would do what they are supposed to do with these people and put them in jail for a period of time where they belong, it would do more good." "I wouldn't have them in my store and I don't know any Eaton's store which Mr. Seed said. Wally Crosby, manager of the Bay, said, "I think it's a good idea to make the punish- ment fit the crime but I would like to see them do more manual work for the city. "To put them into a store would only encourage them to steal he said. "What would you do with a bank robber? Make him work in a he asked. Bob Maguire, senior proba- tion officer, Neil Davidson, a local lawyer, and Mayor Stewart Fleming said they will support the experimental program, which also will be tried in Vancouver, Prince Rupert, Prince George, Co- Abbotsford, Campbell River, New West- minster and Victoria.
