Act outlines landlord rights By JOAN HOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Tenants in residential prem- ises have recourse to civil court action if they are bother- ed by landlords who enter their rented premises unannounced. The ruling forms part of the provincial Landlord and Tenant Act, a 1964 legislation which this year underwent its most major amendment, deal- ing with security deposits. The act stipulates landlord- tenant rights in such areas as termination agreements, rent SMILEY'S PLUMBING BASEMENT BATHROOMS REMODELLING Phone 328-2176 increases, Landlord and Tenant Advisory Beards, and security deposits. In the last category, the act has come under severe criti- cism from the United Tenant Power, a Calgary-based group, which has accused landlords of retaining security deposit without good reason. But the act does touch on a number o5 consistent sources nf irritation between owners of residences and those who rent them. The consolidated form of the act stipulates that landlords must give tenants written no- tice of their intention to visit premises 24 hours before the time of entry. The visit must occur in day- light hours and the exact time m u s t he specified in the no- tice. THE MEMBERS OF THE IETHBRIDGE FLORIST ASSOC.

Small Christmas trees will be picked up by city crews this year, he said, but larger ones will have to be delivered to Die landfill by the owners. He did not wish to make any statement about the garbage collection schedule over this holiday period. He did say it is not known when the backlog of garbage resulting from the Christmas holiday will be caught up.

PHONE 328-7684 must give written notice of a rent increase at least1 90 days before the effective date. Until (he 90 days are up, the land- lord cannot recover any addi- tional rent resulting from the increases. A landlord or tenant can give termination notice orally or in writing, but if a landlord runs into problems getting the ten- ant out of the premises, his ter- mination notice is not en- iorceable under the act unless it is in writing. For a weekly tenancy, notice must be given at least seven days before the effective date; for monthly tenancy, at least one month before; for a year- to-year tenancy, at least 60 days before. A landlord must' invest damage or security deposit, but he must pay interest on it to the tenant at a rate of at least six per cent annually. This can be paid, by agreement, each year or reserved until the ex- piration of the tenancy. A landlord must return the entire deposit within 10 days after the tenant has moved out, or deliver a statement and re- maining money, if any. If the landlord refuses to re- turn the money or doesn't make a fair accounting for it, the tenant' may proceed under The Small Claims Act. Since the act does not at- tempt to define what con- stitutes to which a damage or security deposit may apply, it is up to the ten- ant and landlord to define dam- age in the written rental agree- ment. By IUC SWIHART Herald Staff VvViler STANDOFF Public sup- port of all the businesses and industries established on the Blood Indian Reserve will lead to increased employment, t h e only real gauge of success known by the reserve popula- tion, says Louis Scop, mana- ger of llie Standoff Superette. In an interview he said, "Eco- nomic development and feasi- bility surveys mean notlu'ng to the people unless they can see the results, mainly in increased job opportunities. "The more people support a business on the reserve, the more opportunity for jobs. The people must learn to help the businesses to help themselves." He said the Standoff Super- ette (Supermarket) had in- creased sales appreciably since its opening by stressing public relations among the tribal coun- cil, the administration and the reserve population. He said the store is in the process of hiring an additional employee, bringing the staff to 11 members. This type of reaction to a bus- iness on the reserve forms a chain reaction because the man operating the auto service sta- tion next to the store also has increased sales. t This means he will have to add to his staff and in time will be able to expand his busi- ness. CYCLE FUNDS "If people on the reserve who are making quite a lot of money (and there are many) would put some of that money back on the reserve, it would en- hance the overall economic de- velopment of the reserve." Mr. Soop said the store was receiving excellent co-operation from Canada Safeway Ltd. and the department of Indian af- fairs, in training personnel. "Indian affairs will enrol any person we need in a course at any institution to make sure our staff is up to date with the lat- est methods and Canada Safe- way has indicated it will make training available to any na- tive person chosen for a job with the store. "This will ensure the stan- dards of the Standoff Superette will continue to equal the stan- dards set by other supermar- kets in the province." Mr. Soop said he is taking a management training program in Calgary with Canada Safe- way personnel from other parts of the province.

Winds will be from the w e s t at 30 m.p.h. with gusts up to 60 m.p.h. Condi- tions Sunday should be similar.

The city today, he said, is comparable to what it was when he first started as city clerk. Two important additions in re- cent years, he said, have been the Lethbridge Community Col- lege and the University of Leth- bridge. "These have changed us from a small city lacking in ed- ucational institutions to one that has them." He noted that the college and university had had a stabilizing effect on the city's growth pat- tern. Locking back over the past 25 years, Mr. Ferguson said the problems associated with the growth of the city had all been met successfully by city coun- cil, the school boards and oth- ers responsible for civic affairs. He admitted that perhaps some of them had not been han- dled in the best possible man- ner, but they had all been re- solved in one way or another. One of the big ones, he said, was providing services to the new residential areas in an ex- panding city. As an example of the type of growth that had occurred, he recalled catching rabbits in the open prairie that once extend- ed from Hamilton Junior High School on 4th Ave. and 15th St. S. eastward past Mayor Ma- grath Drive. A person not given to criti- cism, Mr. Ferguson did admit that, "One thing that is kind of Nan-owing his view to civic administration, Mr. Ferguson said there had been no major changes in the way the city had been run over the years, aside from a small increase in the size of city council and hav- ing the mayor elected by the people rather than chosen from council. He also claimed there were no particular events of the past ?5 years that stuck out in his memory. If this is actually the case, perhaps it is a reflection of his treating all events and 1 tion.

Cullen of the trial division of the Supreme Court of in these words: "For those who Tommy couldn't help were beyond help; and those couldn't get along with Tommy had no friend in all the world."
