Act contravened says Campbell VICTORIA (CP) Municipal Affairs Minister Dan Campbell Friday challenged the federal government's c o n s t i tutional right to impose a capital tax on land. Mr. Campbell said he, as well as other provincial munci- pal affairs ministers, told fed- eral urban affairs secretary Robert Andras more than three months ago that the federal gov- ernment's tax on land was a contravention of tin British North American Act. British Columbia and the oth- er provinces want the money collected to come back to the municipalities, he said, adding that the BNA Act reserves the right to municipalities to levy taxes on land, whether it be commercial, industrial, resi- dential or undeveloped. Stewardess wanned baby bottle MIAMI (AP) Seven stew- ardesses told a tale of 914-hour ordeal Friday with two gun-wielding hijackers who re- peatedly threatened to shoot them during a cross-country hi- jacking. They were aboard a Pacific Southwest Airlines commuter flight hijacked miles from California lo Cuba by a shot- gun-armed man and a pistol- waving woman with a five- months-old baby. The flight began at a.m. PST en route from San Fran- cisco to Los Angeles. Sylvia Brister, a striking brunette, was serving the 138 passengers when she felt a sharp stab of pain in her back. It was the barrel of a sawed- off shotgun. The hijacker grabbed her by her ponytail and ordered her to accompany him to the cockpit, Sylvia related at a news conference here follow- ing the return flight from Ha- vana. Once inside, said Capt. Wil- liam Young of San Diego, the man told him If he didn't obey he would kill the entire crew. "He said he would kill three members of the flight the Young told reporters after the Boeing 727 returned from Havana Fri- day night. "He said be didn't 'care what happened. that be was hot, that he was wanted." Doing as he was told, Young landed in Los Angeles where the hijackers ordered the passen- gers off as the plane was being refuelled. Before the refuelling was completed, the hijacker be- came nervous, Young said, and suddenly jammed his shotgun into Dianne Beighley's face and said: "I will kill you if we don't get this thing off the ground." On the four-hour flight to the hijackers spent two hours on the ground refuelling again and vainly trying to force officials to get them a larger plane capable of Hying to Africa-Cheryl Galle- more wanned a baby bottle, with a gun at her bead.

"To suggest this will help out the family farm or small business man n he said hi an interview. "If Mr. Lougbeed wanted to help he could draft the sort of exemptions Saskatche- wan is working on.
