Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THI LETHBRIOOI HIRALD Saturday, Ftbruary 5, If71 Lawyers hit by John Doe OTTAWA (CP) When the national law conference that ended here Friday was being organized, the justice depart- ment invited citizens to mail in their views on the system. One of the letters came from Wilson Harford, whose only brush with the law came when he bought a house in Toronto. The legal fees were Mr. H a r f o r d 's letter ex- pressed suspicion of all the professions" that wasn't reduced by his experi- ence with his lawyer. Why was a lawyer needed in buying a house? And what did he do, beyond shuffling paper, to earn his fee? Mr. Harford's questions wer- en't mentioned, let alone replied to. during the conference of about 350 high-powered aca- demics, activists, lawyers, offi- cials and judges. HIT PROFESSIONS But criticism of the profes- sions was a fundamental theme of the four-day colloquoy, with lawyers defending their rele- vance against battering attacks from and without. Educational theorist Ivan H- of Mexico led an assault on what he called "radical monop- law, medicine, edu- cation and other professions anl trades that hoard knowledge from the citizen. Even municipal building codes militated against the citi- zen by driving up the cost ol housing and forcing it beyond the means of most. Dr. Illich proposed a "convivial society" in which knowledge would be returned to the populace. He mentioned in passing Can- ada's do-it-yourself divorce kits, which cut out lawyers alto- gether and decrease costs from the hundreds of dollars to about Cracks also are appearing in other professional monopo- lies, he said. California sociologist Jack Seeley, continuing the theme that knowledge must be liber- ated, said society is "suffering and dying from organization." "Division labor has gone mad, size insane." Man was being stifled by management. FORM FORUM As the conference was ending Friday, a group of younger del- egates formed their own forum on "education and the law." In- viting delegates to attend, they said it was odd that in a country committed to the rule of law "we tend to confine legal educa- tion to lawyers." "We want to rid law of its said Randall Marlin, who teaches philosophy at Car- leton University in Ottawa. "People find themselves pay- ing lawyers to find out whether they should put their left foot in front of their right." STOL aircraft getting nowhere CHECKPOINT British backed up by armored vehicles, search a car for con- traband arms on an approach road to the Northern Ireland border town of Newry, Friday. checkpoints were set up to prevent another bloody shootout Sunday, when partisans of the Civil Rights Association are scheduled to march through Newry, protesting last Sunday's slaying of 13 civilians in- Londonderry. OTTAWA (CP) Canada's STOL aircraft development pro- ject appears to be stalled at high levels in the government. "The government is seriously looking at a number of alterna- said one government source. "With the cabinet shuf- fle, things are pretty much at a standstill." The Canadian aircraft indus- try is counting on the STOL- short takeoff and landing-air- plane to inject new life into the ailing aircraft construction busi- ness. Canada is considered a leader in STOL development and the transport department is plan- ning to )aucch an experimental STOL service between Montreal and Ottawa in May, 1973. The service will de Havilland use the 14- Twin Otter Tear- expl teas gas osion 'prank9 VANCOUVER (CP) Eight persons were released from the University of British Co- lumbia Hospital after observa- tion following the explosion of tear-gas type bomb Friday in a university classroom. University RCMP are inves- tigating the explosion which went off in a civil engineering class taught by James Ken- nedy, director of the UBC com- puting centre. RCMP said they suspect the incident, which resulted in can- cellation of all classes in the building, was a prank. with the 48-seat DHC-7 expected to replace it later. De Havilland has received a government subsidy to prolong the life of the DHC-7 project at least until March. The aircraft is still in the development stage. The STOL plane can land on airstrips near city centres and has been touted as a good way to travel between cities only a short distance apart though some air carriers harbor doubts. The aircraft Is seen by the Science Council of Canada as Important to a 'strong aircraft industry in Canada. But Canada is beir" "f lenged by the U.S., Br d other countries w heed for start-bar; tween city centrr'6 als ev Administrator Wit, you cai but cutting is Top Tory is tops Tory The government has told the aircraft industry that success of the Canadian STOL depends on a workable plan for producing and marketing the plane. NEED CO-OPERATION This is understood to mean that such large companies as Canadiar Ltd. and de Havilland should combine efforts in STOL development. Various plans have been sub- mitted to the government but decisions are slow in coming. "We have to get a go-ahead if we are going to win a part of the STOL market, "said one government source. There are various problems that have to be ironed out, he said. One of these is the amount Canadian STOL project. Some informed sources say joint programs between nations or between companies in differ- ent countries will be the future pattern in STOL development throughout the world. N O T I C E MR.

(Plain) says CALGARY (CP) The Im age of Opposition Leader Rob- ert Stanfield as a "cautious and careful man" is bringing many people to the Progressive Con servative side, says Rober Thompson, former national So- cial Credit leader. The Conservative MP for Red Deer told University of Calgary students if Prime Min ister Trudeau called a federal election today "I don't think he could get the majority oi votes." Mr. Thompson, who plan to seek re-election, pre- dicted Friday Canadians wil go to the polls for a federa election before June, ffiaybe as early as April. He reiterated bis views tha as a national party, Socia Credit no longer was credible to Gcssariians. The principles of Social Credit are the only hops for the world's monetary crisis, be said. He called for freer trade in Canada, "but that alone isn' going to solve our monetary problems, "We must revise our entire tax system. As it stands today our tax policy penalizes Cana- dians who wish to invest in Canada." The blame, he said, belongs to Canadians. "They haven't provided their own government with the in- centive to change the tax pol- icy." Canadians have been content to allow foreign capital to de- velop their resources. Forest road to border tourist dream CALGARY (CP) A forest road area from Grande Prai- rie to the U.S. border would re- ceive priority attention as part of the provincial govern- ment's program of creating and upgrading provincial parks.

Prostitutes vanished MONTREAL (CP) An RCMP corporal, formerly on the Montreal police morality squad, said Friday he informed Jacques that some squad members were, in the habit of "adding" evidence in oases where there was not enough proof to convict a sus- pect. Cpl. Denis Couture, testifying at a Quebec Police Commission inquiry into the conduct of Mr. Saulnier, now Montreal police chief and head of the morality squad in 1966, said he was never asked by Mr. Saulnier to fabri- cate evidence, but "it was done every day by the others." Hie inquiry, called in the wake of a report that Mr. nier received a color television set from a Montreal hotel owner in December, 1966, has heard wide-ranging testimony from members and former members of the Montreal police force, on the captain's conduct when he headed the morality squad. A woman ca'led Martha Adams was subpoenaed to ap- pear before the commission Fri- day but a heavy snowstorm pre- vented police from bringing her to the inquijy and Cpl. Couture was the day's only witness1. Lieut. Emile Ducharme, ,who also served on the morality squad under Mr. Saulnier, testi- fied earlier this week that on April 3, 1967, a Martha Adams, who was under arrest at the time on charges of living off the avails of prostitution, made a sworn statement concerning Mr. Saulnier. Cpl. Couture also testified that he informed Mr. Saulnier on Oct. 24, 1966, that the morality squad was divided into two groups which were not collabor- ating with each other and that one group sometimes hindered the work of the other. One group was composed of four men, himself, Lieut. Du- charme, constables Leo Ville- neuve and Roland Clermont, while the other group consti- tuted "the rest of the squad, or about 40 men." He said the group of four had planned a raid on a suspected bawdy house, but when they ar- rived at the establishment they found everyone had vanished. Cpl. Couture added, however, that he had no concrete evi- dence that squad members had Bad weather hits Kaiser operation NATAL (HNS) Harsh weather and heavy snowfalls have been causing shipping problems at Kaiser Resources Limited coal operations. SnowsMdes caused a drop In the normal number of unit trains and Kaiser had to start stockpiling coal at the plant site. This has been going on for more than a week. Normally, two CPR unit trains per day load up at the mane. The number has dropped to half that. Trains have been held up by snowslides at va- rious points between here and Bank shipping point, including several hold- ups in the Fraser Valley. Kaiser spokesman Jack John said that the CPR had done its utmost to supply the cars, but had been hurt badly by the weather. can one ivin against city EDMONTON (CP) The provincial committe on ur- banization and the future has discovered that citizens do not feel local government is re- sponsive to their needs, a mittee spokesman said Friday. New regulations overn pet food content OTTAWA (CP) Pet-food producers will be required to use only government-inspected meat wder regulations now wing planned by the agricul- ture department. Dr. R. J. McCleueghan, di- rector of the department's con- agious diseases division, said In an interview here all pet- ood manufacturers will be re- quired to hold licences and op- erate only inspected plants. He said the three pet-food makers now using only inspected meat do so voluntarily. The companies using govern- ment-approved meat are Can- ada Packers Ltd., makers of iip dog food and Chum cat ood, J. M. Schneider Ltd., mxJucers of Spot dog food and Whiskers cat food, and Swift Canada Co. Ltd., who sell 'ard, Terry and Tempt pet Roger Soderstrom, co-ordina- tor f or the committee estab- lished last year by the provin- cial government, said the first meeting with individuals and groups evoked complaints ranging from traffic noise to the general effectiveness of the individual citizen. "I sensed a certain degree of apathy; how can one win against city hall he said in an interview. "Other reactions were that city counciJ listens only to the dollar and that it doesn't take the advice of their own plan- ners at times who often agree with citizens' groups." He said the total issue of planning and the need for kin- dergartens was discussed in addition to the problem of ab- sentee land owners. "If the owner doesn't live in the city he soon loses in- terest in the way the property is Mr. Soder- ctrom said.

During the conversation with Mr. Saulnier, a discussion en- sued on alleged prying into the captain's activity in an attempt to find evidence of wrongdoing, and Mr. Saulnier "became Mr. Couture said. Mr. Couture said Mr. Saulnier had admitted he had differences with Lieut. Ducharme. "He ended the talk by telling me that there were plenty of Villenouves, Coutures and Du> charmes and not man" Sautr niers, but there was otie across the street who was very Impor- tant." Jacques Saulnier is the brother of Lucien Saulnier, for- mer head of the City of-Mont- real executive committee and now holder of the same post in the Montreal Urban Commun- ity, the administration which oversees the city and its 29 sub- urbs. Teachers in court would lose wage EDMONTON (CP) Sal- aries of teachers who face criminal charges should be suspended until the charges are disposed of, the Edmonton public school board said Fri- day. Board chairman Donald Kennedy said the board has written to the Alberta govern- ment asking that provincial legislation in this regard be changed. Under existing legislation, a teacher is suspended from work if he faces a criminal charge. The salary, however, continues during the suspen- sion. If the teacher is finally convicted then the teacher is dismissed and his salary Mop- ped. Mr. Kennedy said the board feels that the salary of a teach- er facing a criminal charge should be held in trust until the case is disposed of, he added.
