Saturday, February 1, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 35 Commission plunges on with freight rate increase OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian transport commission de- cided Friday to plunge on with the complicated freight rate case even though the railways are taking the rate issue to the Supreme Court of Canada. The commission reserved decision late Friday on what action it will take on a Federal Court of Appeal recommendation to review the freight rate case which affects about shippers. David Jones, chairman of the railway transport com- mittee, said the commission will make a decision within a few days despite a railway re- quest to postpone the issue un- til after the Supreme Court hearing. Earlier Friday, the Supreme Court informed the railways their bid for leave to appeal a portion of the Federal Court ruling will be heard Feb. 17. The railways are seeking permission to appeal the Federal Court recommenda- tion that the commission look again at the freight rate case. The Federal Court said in the same decision last Satur- day that the commission did not have the power to post- pone the effective date of half the 25-percent rail freight increase to March 1 from Jan. 1. The rest of the increase came into force Jan. 1. After the Federal Court ruU ing the railways increased their rates the full amount. The provinces of Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, On- tario and British Columbia and the Atlantic Provinces Friday asked the commission, in effect, to roll back tem- porarily the rail increase. They suggested the Federal Court ruling left room for the commission to delay im- plementation of rail freight tariffs by extending the time for filing and publishing rates. This was disputed by the railways. The provinces and the Atlantic Provinces Transpor- tation Commission originally asked for a 60-day postpone- ment of the 25-per-cent increase in general commod: ty rates. This led to the commission ruling Dec. 31 postponing half the increase to March 1. The Hallways appealed the deci- sion to the Federal Court and now are seeking the right to appeal part of the Federal Court ruling to the Supreme Court. VV. G. Burke-Robertson, counsel for British Columbia, argued that the Federal Court ruling effectively requires the commission to deal with the freight rate case.

B. B. Swadron of Toronto, a law professor at York Univer- sity, said'even if treatment is not possible, a potentially dangerous person should not be released from hospital. "Some have to be kept in and not receive he told a seminar on mental disorders and the law. Dr. Charles Hellon of Ed- monton, director of mental health services for Alberta, said discussions between a patient and his psychiatrist should be privileged "unless the patient is potentially dangerous." He said he once made "a decision on the side of society" by turning over to police a convicted murderer whom he was convinced would have killed again. Smoke bylaw stands up EDMONTON (CP) The city's controversial smoke detector bylaw withstood the heat of a court challenge Friday. J. V. H. Milvain, chief justice of the Alberta Supreme Court trial division, dismissed an application by 14 Edmonton firms to declare the bylaw invalid. Chief Justice Milvajn said he was not satisfied that the bylaw was discriminatory, repugnant to other laws or in- volving an improper delega- tion of council authority the three grounds put forward by Jack Agrios, lawyer for the firms. The main argument by Mr. Agrios was that the bylaw did not require the installation of the smoke detectors in ex- isting single family dwellings and the owners of these homes were thus put into a different position than other citizens.

John Curran, Calgary board of education chairman, said "the board is prepared to accept mediation again but is not asking for mediation, at this time.

The Tiesmakis last year unsuccessfully sued Dr. Ian Wilson of Banff, two others doctors, three clinic and the Banff Mineral Springs Hospital. The of Banff, claimed that the plaintiffs were negligent in their treat- ment of their daughter, then five years old, in October, 1960. The girl suffered perma- nent brain damage following the treatment, said James Redmond, lawyer to the Tiesmakis. The suit was dismissed by Justice's. S. Lieberman of the Supreme Court trial division last year. Family dispute ruling appealed EDMONTON (CP) Notice of appeal has been fil- 'ed with the Supreme Court of Canada after the appeal divi- sion of the Alberta Supreme Court ordered a new trial against one of two remaining defendants in a civil suit in- volving a family dispute on ownership of 140 acres of valuable land just north of the city limits. The case arose out of a 1948 transfer of the land, now own- ed by Frederick William Cresswell and valued up to million, by George Henry Cresswell to his wife Elizabeth Kennedy Cresswell, now both deceased. In a nine page majority judgment, handed down last week by Mr. Justice N. A. McDermid, with Mr. Justice C. W. Clement concurring, the appeal division said that the trial judge W. R. Sinclair made three significant Errors of law entitling the plaintiffs, -Jessie Scott, 66, of Edmonton, and Alexander Cresswell, 57, of Kelowna, B.C., to a new trial against the executors of their mother's estate, Henry George Cresswell, 74, and William Frederick Cresswell, 61, both of Edmonton.

Box 187, Alberta TOO IVO down in February, 1973 after a 19-day trial, dismissed the ac- tion brought by Mrs. Scott and Alexander Cresswell in their capacity as administrators of the estate of their father against three defendants, the registrar of the North Alberta Land Registration District, the estate of their mother and William Frederick Cresswell in his personal capacity. The plaintiffs, who appealed the judgment against all three defendants, abandoned the appeal against the registrar prior to the appeal being heard by .the three member panel of the appeal division in June, 1974, which led to the judgment being reserved. Mr. Justice D. C. Prowse, in a 29 page written judgment, agreed with the decision of his two colleagues but added that a new trial also should be granted against William Frederick Cresswell. The statement of claim, in addition to alleging that the signature on the 1948 transfer signed by George Henry Cresswell about seven months before his death in April, 1949 aged 83 was a forgery and also alleged the transfer was signed by him while he was mentally incapable of doing so or contrary to his free will due to duress or undue influence allegedly on the part of his wife and his son, William Frederick.
