Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 4, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, January 4, 1975 THE I.ETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Screaming man cuts wrist Fitness contest tests nasty rumor about fit Swedes EDMONTON (CP) A man screaming he wanted to see a reporter because "they're trying to kill me" slashed his own wrist with a razor blade in a provincial court Friday. The man, identified as Harry Cameron, rushed to the stand before his name was called and started screaming. "I was just looking down at my book, said presiding Judge Dean Saks. "All of a sudden, he started slashing himself." The court room was cleared and doctors attended to the man. Police said the man struggled with the doctors and continued to scream that he was being killed. Police said they did not know where he got the razor blade. Gas workers on strike WINDFALL (CP) Fifty five gas processing workers at the Atlantic Richfield Canada Ltd. plant walked off their jobs Friday in sympathy for a man who, they said, was dis- missed for no given reason. The workers have also been negotiating for an increase of over the current starting minimum of an hour and said they would stay off the job until both the dismissal and wage demands have been settled. Beating victim identified EDMONTON (CP) A man found beaten to death in a car outside a city hotel New Years' night was identified Friday as Nick Bitz, 54, of Ed- monton. Police have arrested Robert Gibbions, 27, of Edmonton and charged him with manslaughter in the case. He has been remanded to Jan. 9. Broken pipe examined FORT McMURRAY, Alta. (CP) A metallurgical laboratory in Edmonton, 225 miles southwest of here, is ex- amining a 10 foot section of pipe that broke a week ago, spilling barrels of oil on the House River. Workers last Sunday dug out the ruptured section of Great Canadian Oil Sands Ltd. (GCOS) pipeline which was carrying between and 400 barrels of oil per hour at the time of the break Dec. 26. Examination at the metallurgical laboratory of the broken piece of 16 inch diameter pipe is one of the first steps in determining the cause of the break. John Perenhic, GCOS Public Relations Manager, said the ruptured pipe would go through about three tests before the cause of the break can be known for certain. UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD.

The citizens of Saskatoon will compete in a three-day fitness match with the residents of Urnea, in northern Sweden, that might settle the myth once and for all. The special transatlantic meet scheduled for May 12- 14 is the result of enthusiasm generated in Saskatoon almost two years ago by Participaction, a non- profit agency set up in 1971 with the idea of getting Canadians into better physical condition. In the Saskatoon-Sweden competition, residents of each city will be simply encourag- ed to get out of their homes on each of the designated nights and walk around the block. The city able to turn out the most enthusiasts wins the competition. This follows the basic plan of a highly-successful "fitness night" in Saskatoon in Febru- ary, 1973. In an interview Friday, Keith McKerracher, director of Participaction, said he thinks Canadians will prove themselves better than the Swedes. Noting that of Saska- toon's residents took part in 1973, McKerracher said his observations from a recent visit to Sweden left him with the impression that "the welfare state in Sweden has completely sapped the idea of competition." Canada's ambassador to Sweden will watch the three days of competition in Umea while the Swedish am- bassador to Canada will go to Saskatoon for the match. Service clubs, schools and church groups in the respec- tive cities will be paired off against their counterparts. Radio and television stations in Saskatoon are preparing packages to exchange with the news media in Umea and ham radio links will be made dur- ing the competition, McKerracher said. The plan has the blessing of the city councils of both cities, which have identical climates and size. It will be a cultural exchange as well. Each class in Umea schools will receive brochures of information about Saskatoon, and Canada. The plan was completed, McKerracher said, after a Saskatoon group went to Sweden in early December. Larger companies benefit NDP leader critical of oil incentive plan Man seeks legislation to sue doctors, hospital EDMONTON (CP) A man who says he lost a leg after an oxygen bag on his foot exploded is seeking provincial legislation to enable him to sue the doctors and hospital involved. A lawyer for Hector Couture, 58, said Friday he is seeking an act of the legislature to allow his client to circumvent the require- ment that negligence charges must be laid against doctors within one year of the in- cident. Lawyer John Jenkins said the legislation is sought because his client, was previous advised within the one-year period that he had no legal recourse. The lawyer said the incident occurred in June, 1973, when his client allegedly stepped on a cigarette butt while wearing an oxygen bag on his foot for treatment of an ulcer. The bag exploded and Mr. Couture's leg was amputated below the knee. At ,i5te time, he was patient at a city hospital.

Most recently consumer and corpo- rate affairs minister, the Windsor West MP was a minister for almost five years .before being dropped in the August post-election cabinet shuffle. When dropped from the Trudeau cabinet, Mr. Gray said he would no longer feel bound by cabinet solidarity and his actions since have backed up this statement. He was an active member of the special Commons com- mittee that investigated the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency.
