Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 13, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Thurtday, February 13, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 RCMP finds no fault with drug legislation By BILL COULTHARD OTTAWA (CP) Although they said use and traffic in cannabis drugs has "increas- ed astronomically" during the last 10 years, RCMP witnesses found little fault Wednesday with proposed legislation that would eliminate jail sentences for possession of the drugs. Inspector Gordon Tomalty told a Senate committee, how- ever, that possession must re- main an offence in Canada if RCMP and other police forces are to exercise the control over drug use that is demand- ed in the country's drug legislation. "Although some factions of the Canadian public have ex- pressed the opinion that mere possession of cannabis should not be considered a criminal offence, the RCMP strongly advocate the retention of an offence for illegal Inspector Tomalty said in a reading the RCMP's brief. "Furthermore, it is felt that a possession offence acts as a deterrent and if it were elimated many persons, who would not ordinarily become CAREERS FULLY EXPERIENCED Automotive Partsperson for Sales and Stock Control Salary commensurate with experience.

Inspector -Tomalty, officer in charge of the RCMP's drug enforcement branch, and Jack Ross, deputy commissioner responsible for criminal oper- ations, were testifying before the Senate committee on legal and constitutional affairs. STUDY PENALTIES The committee is studying a bill which would eliminate jail terms for simple possession of marijuana and hashish and re- duce maximum penalties to a fine for a first offence and for subsequent offences. Jail terms would en- sue only if the fine was not paid. The bill also would transfer control of cannabis from the Narcotic Control Act to the Food and Drug Act. The RCMP brief found fault with the bill only in a provi- sion that would eliminate penalties for importing if a person established that the importing was only for his personal use. The brief said this is "extremely difficult" for a court to decide. Government said liable for charges By KEN POLE OTTAWA (CP) The federal government should be liable for the costs incurred because of grain handling delays if the responsible par- ties, such as labor unions, can- not be charged with the loss, the Canadian Federation of Agriculture said Wednesday. This was the gist of a resolu- tion approved at the CFA's an- nual conference as an answer to demurrage charges built up during grain-handling dis- putes last year. These charges are paid to shipowners whose vessels sit idle in port because the Canadian wheat board in the grain unable to load cargo. Through the board, demurrage charges are gener- ally passed on to the con- sumers because the wheat board is simply their agent. In its resolution, one of sev- eral approved Wednesday, the CFA urged Ottawa and the provinces to "make greater efforts so that all grain be handled uninterrupted to meet all and any commitments to offshore buyers." It said the farmer has ful- filled his role when he delivers his grain to the elevators and should not be held responsible for situations over which he has no control, such as trans- portation or handling strikes.

Future of Ford's energy plan blurred EDWARD HEATH Heath rejects offer LONDON (Reuter) Former prime minister Edward Heath has turned down an offer to serve in the shadow cabinet of Britain's new opposition Conservative party leader, Margaret Thatcher, it was announced Wednesday night. In a press statement, Mrs. Thatcher also announced that party Chairman William Whitelaw will be her deputy leader. Heath, who resigned as Con- servative leader last week after losing to Mrs. Thatcher in the first ballot for the party leadership, said at the time that he intended to remain on the parliamentary backbenches. Mrs. Thatcher.spent 25 min- utes at Heath's London home Wednesday in an attempt to persuade him to serve as one of her shadow ministers. In her statement Wednes- day night, Mrs. Thatcher an- nounced: "However, Mr. Heath indicated that he wish- ed to adhere to his intention already announced of serving in Parliament on the backbenches." Political observers said Heath's decision almost cer- tainly spelled the end of his career in high-level British politics, although a senior ap- pointment within the Euro- pean Common" Market organization was still regard- ed as a possibility. Whitelaw was Mrs. That- cher's main rival in Tuesday's second-round ballot for the Conservative leadership. But their campaign for election was friendly and Whitelaw's appointment as deputy leader does not come as a surprise.
