Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Environment centre dubbed Davis monument By KEN POLE OTTAWA (CP) Politicians are often damned by their constituents for failing to keep election promises. Environment Minister Jack Davis is being damned for trying to keep one, at least in some quarters. He promised during the 1972 election campaign to have a multi-million-dollar Pacific Environment Centre built in North Vancouver, B.C. But plans for the facility, in the minister's riding of Capilano, have drawn protests from various groups including some of his own staff. Some environment depart- ment employees have called the proposed laboratory-office structure a monument to Jack Davis designed as a vote- getter for the next election. Joseph Clare, Vancouver re- gional spokesman for the Pro- fessional Institute of the Public Service Alliance, says the conclusion the selection of the site is wholly political is irresistable." Mr. Clare and other employee spokesmen says the suburban North Vancouver site means some workers will have to spend as much as two hours daily going to and from the job. They also contend the centre's location is inconvenient for tourists, fishermen and others who will have to do business there. IN 'RAIN FOREST' The site is across the harbor from Vancouver in the lower part of what Vancouverites call the "rain an area with one of the highest rainfalls in Canada. Critics say this and the pollution from nearby shipping terminals will play hob with at- mospheric studies. The first building in the project will be the regional weather office, replacing present facilities at Vancouver international airport. This will be followed by the environmental protection service and public information offices. About 200 employees are involved in this first phase, scheduled for completion years. most recent government move was to obtain control of 55 acres of Indian reserve land, instead of several other sites described by critics as more favorable. Rationing extended STOCKHOLM (APT Rationing of Swedish heating oil has been extended two months, which will mean a 20 per cent cut in normal oil consumption in March and April. The decision was made by a state fuel-saving board, which last Jan. 30 lifted gasoline rationing. While gasoline imports declined only slightly by year end, imports of heavy and light fuel oils and naphtha dropped sharply. Illegal wager costs Conservative John Fraser, who represents the nearby federal riding of Vancouver South, criticizes the plan. He complains of being unable to get information and of a strange breakdown in proper planning procedures." QUESTIONS UNANSWERED Mr. Fraser, his party's envi- ronment spokesman in the Commons, says there is a multitude of questions to be answered. "And, if they cannot be an- swered satisfactorily, the selection of a North Vancouver site for the environmental centre should be says.

He earlier had admitted the money was taken from in- vestors at his Wall Street bro- kerage firm and pleaded guilty in 1969 to six counts of misappropriation of funds, vowing to pay the money back. In his suit, Rosenblatt added interest to the wagers to arrive at a total of sought from Danzis Danzis's contention that the money was stolen was re- jected by state Supreme Court Justice Joseph Brust, who held in 1966 that "it doesn't matter whether the money lost in a wager was stolen." "It is of no consequence and constitutes no defence." The case was placed on the agenda for trial in 1968, but delays and postponements kept it from coming up for disposition until Feb. 8, when Danzis did not appear.
