Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TuMday, February 26, 1974-THE LETHBRIDOE Dateline Alberta Plant death inquest set LACOMBE (CP) An inquest has been called into the death of a 22-year-old Lacombe man who was overcome by hydrogen sulphide gas Feb. 14 at Chevron Standard's Nevis plant, 40 miles northeast of Red Deer, it was announced Monday. Richard Alexander Frederick Shadick died in hospital a few hours after he and two other men were overcome by the gas while changing baffles in a pipe. Edgar Peterson, 37, of Ponoka, was treated and released the same day, but Laverne Snideman, 36, of Stettler, still is undergoing treatment in Edmonton's University Hospital. Cabinet shuffle rumored Liberals and Tories set to meet head on when House reopens Court grants permission EDMONTON (CP) The Supreme Court of Canada gave permission Monday to an Edmonton lawyer to appeal decisions that allowed the city to sell land for a department store warehouse. City council decided to sell the land to Edmonton Square Holdings Limited in April, 1973. The price set was for the 15-acre parcel in the northwest area. Norman Simons took legal action in an attempt to stop the sale, arguing that the Municipal Governments Act said a municipality cannot sell any land it owns at any price less than its fair actual value, unless the land was for housing. Plebiscite support urged EDMONTON (CP) Dr. W. L. Van Vliet, dean of physical education at the University of Alberta, Monday urged support by the public for the March 20 plebiscite asking approval for the city's spending of million on the 1978 Commonwealth Games facilities. Dr. Van Vliet told a Kiwanis Club meeting that the expenditure would be a bargain for the city. "None of this money he said. "It stays right in the city." The first vice-chairman of the Games foundation, Dr. Van Vliet said the proposed "Edmonton sports and fitness centre" could be best facility of its kind in North America.

AG-EXPO 74 MARCH 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 THE BIGGEST AND BEST AGRICULTUBE SHOW FOR SOUTHERN ALBERTA VteitttM Display of Farm Machinery and Irrigation Equipment Shown by General Farm Supplies Highway 1201 Phono By STEWART MacLEOD OTTAWA (CP) Both the minority Liberal government and the Progressive Con- servative opposition say they are ready to take the offensive when the new session of Parliament opens Wednesday. The New Democrats, who hold the effective balance of power between the two, have indicated they will listen attentively to what Finance Minister John Turner offers in his budget speech, expected in late spring. "Our attack on inflation which will be contained in the speech from the throne... will be Prime Minister Trudeau has said. But says Progressive Con- servative Leader Robert Stanfield: "I intend to challenge the complacency of those comfortable Canadians, of any political allegiance, who are dining out on the windfalls of inflation or clinging to the status quo out of some misguided loyalty to special interests." But before the parliamentary battle begins, the present session must be ended. This will be done at 2 p.m. today when MPs are summoned to the Senate where Chief Justice Bora Las- kin, acting for Gov.-Gen. Jules Leger, will read the prorogation speech. TO REVIEW SESSION This speech, to last about 12 minutes, will be a general re- view of the completed session and will not contain new an- nouncements. The new legislative program will come in Wednesday's throne speech, prepared by the government and read by the Governor-General amid all the pomp and ceremony that accompanies the opening of a new session. Mr. Stanfield, who criss- crossed the country during the six-week parliamentary recess, has said inflation will be the main issue in the months ahead, and in the next election campaign. He plans new snow continuing. Golden to Revelsloke has had 5" of new snow. Plowing and sanding are in progress on the slippery areas. Banff-Jasper highway has 3" of snow continuing. Plowing and sanding are in to tackle the issue immediately. "During the last session of Parliament, the Trudeau gov- ernment took no effective action to attack the root causes of inflation." He says his job is-to "arouse the Canadian people to believing that something can be done about inflation.'" "Inflation is the single biggest says the prime minister. "It's the one on which the thrust of all our policy will be directed." There have been reports that the government will propose, among other things, a food stabilization plan to prevent wild fluctuations in prices. On the eve of Parliament's resumption, there was a spate of rumors about a possible cabinet shuffle, which would enable Mr. Trudeau to enter the new session with a new government image. The rumors were fanned by statements attributed to Ex- ternal Affairs Minister Sharp, in Kamloops, B.C., to the effect that he would not be surprised if he is shifted to another portfolio. But a spokesman for the minister said Mr. Sharp was not talking in terms of any imminent did not see any until the summer, at least. Also, he was referring to the fact that he had been in external affairs for six years and moves affecting him would not be surprising. "There has been no sugges- tion of immediate said the spokesman. Unlike a year ago, when the minority Liberals faced Parliament for the first time following the 1972 general election, there is little talk about an early defeat this time. This is largely because NDP Leader David Lewis has made for cancer EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta division of the Canadian Cancer Society announced Monday it will spend this year on research and research facilities in the province. The division announcement, following the annual meeting during the weekend in Calgary, said the money will be provided from funds donated during April, designated cancer month. MITCHELL SHARP it clear he wants to see the government's budgetary proposals before joining with the Conservatives on any non- confidence votes.
