Wednesday, January 8, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 31 Edmonton man charged with accepting gift EDMONTON (CT) William McKinnon "carried the ball" in merging two in- surance companies, a preliminary hearing into a charge against Mr. McKinnon of unlawfully accepting an ad- vantage or benefit was told Tuesday. Mr. McKinnon is charged with accepting from Albert Jaasma, president of Cosmopolitan Life Assurance Co., without the written con- sent of his superiors. Mr. McKinnon was a financial analyst with the superinten- dent of insurance branch from 1967 to 1970. John Macl'hee, former superintendent of insurance, testified Mr. McKinnon handl- ed most of the planning for the merger of Cosmopolitan and Seaboard Life Insurance Co. "He was constantly on top of what was going on at Mr. MacPhce said. Mr. Macl'hee said he never discussed Mr. McKinnon's accepting money from Mr. Jaasma with the former financial analyst. The merger was part of a procedure to prevent Cosmopolitan from failing. Mr. McKinnon did the: bulk of the examinations on Cosmopolitan before the planned merger and "lie was the technician and we relied on the work he'd done." Mr. MacPhce said he was more worried about the management of Cosmopolitan than about its financial problems and added Mr. Jaasma "was a promoter and not an administrator." "Mr. McKinnon. in fact the entire life insurance industry, said to me repeatedly that Mr. Jaasma should be prosecuted. But there was no way it could he done under the insurance act." Asbestos in water supply claimed cause of cancer TORONTO (CP) Dr. Morton Shulman, NDP member of the Ontario legislature, said Tuesday that information to be released in the United States next week suggests asbestos in drinking water "can cause gastro- intestinal cancer." Dr. Shulman, who last month warned of high levels of asbestos particles in drink- ing water in communities on the Great Lakes, told a news conference the Ontario government is taking chances with the lives of Ontario residents through its "wait and see" stance. The NDP member said he believes that asbestos in drinking water is a "far more serious carcinogen (cancer- causing agent) than tobacco." Canada investment heavy in Caribbean By ROBERT TRUMBULL New York Times Service BRIDGETOWN, Barbados Canadian involvement in the emerging islands of the sunny Caribbean is in- creasing. With colonial rule ended in I but a few islands, the British commercial influence has declined. In Barbados, for example, although Britain remains the biggest single trading partner, Canada and the United States together ac- counted for more than 54 per cent of the foreign trade last year, and their proportion is rising. 'The British ties are loosen- ing partly by desire and partly by a Canadian diplomat said. Some west Indians feel that the British have deserted them by joining the European Economic Community, while others sometimes feel that they have to push the British out." Canadian commercial in- volvement, most visible in banking insurance and tourism, is expanding. Air Canada assists the troubled regional line, LIAT, an acronym of Leeward Islands Air Transport. The Canadian national sport, ice hockey, is played in- doors with equipment made lere under Canadian direction >y Barbadians who have never seen a real rink. Fugitives from the biting Canadian winter have out- numbered American visitors his year for the first time in ush, warm Barbados. The Canadian presence is jervasive. Many hotels are Canadian-owned, and a tourist ooking for a Canadian bank in the smallest planta- ion town may have a choice if three. The Barbados radio relays tie Canadian national news iroadcast several times a iay. It would be difficult to find a iritish island or former Jritish island anywhere in the inglish-speaking Caribbean vithout some permanent con- picuous Canadian con- ribution. A fish-packing plant in in- ependent Grenada-, a school n semi-independent St. Kitts nd an airfield in Montserrat, 'hich prefers to remain a olony, are a few samples mong many improvement projects funded by Ottawa. The Canadians concentrate on developing water resources, air transport facilities, education and agriculture. The ultimate ob- jective of all the projects, however, is to provide an in- viting climate for investment in tourism, the principal in- dustry. There is also a reverse attraction of the tiny, struggl- ing islands for a huge and kindly neighbor. A year ago the minuscule Turks and Caicos Islands, remnants ol the once extensive British Empire in the Caribbean, petitioned for annexation by Canada. Ottawa demurred. Tourism according to a survey by experts from the United States, Canada and Britain a few years ago is "the key sector that would stimulate self-sustained economic growth in the region." "Recognizing that actual tourist facilities should be financed by private capital, the survey stressed that this capital could be attracted only if the governments in the region developed the necessary infrastructure of social and educational in- a report on the survey stated. He advised persons drinking water from tlie Great Lakes, particularly families with young children, to install stills in their homes. Dr. Shulrnan said he has been told a filtration system to remove asbestos from Toronto drinking water would cost about Individual units for homes cost between S180 and 5200, he said. Dr. Shulman said his latest information came from a leading participant in a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPAI conference on the biological effects of ingested asbestos, held in November, 1973, in Durham, N.C. Minutes'of that conference, to be published by the EPA next week, show that none of the scientists consulted by the U.S. government agency was willing to dispel suggestions of a link between ingested asbestos and cancer of the stomach or bowel, he said. Dr. Shulman said that among them, Prof. Sam Epstein, professor of en- vironmental health at Case Western University, Cleveland, Ohio, told him Monday: "Every effort must be made at once to remove the asbestos from our drinking water." Dr. Shulman said Prof. Ep- stein admitted there is no legal proof that drinking the water causes cancer "but there is no question that asbestos is a carcinogen." However, Prof. Epstein said in a telephone interview Tuesday the report would not be "particularly helpful" in resolving the drinking water controversy. He said the conference did not deal with asbestos in its relation "specifically to drinking water" and no studies on animals have es- tablished a link. Survey lops 300 feet off high mountain peak OTTAWA (CP) More than 300 feet have been lop- ped off Mount Logan, the highest peak in Canada. The height of the mountain has been unofficially lowered following surveys by federal scientists which set its height at feet, 330 feet less than its official height. The mountain, in the south- west corner of the Yukon in the St. Elias mountain range, is the second highest in North America, behind Mount McKinley in Alaska. Even with 330 feet lopped off, however, the mountain is still the highest in the country and second highest on the con- tinent, ahead of 18.700-foot Mount Citlaltepec in Mexico. The new height was deter- mined last'summer by envi- ronment department glatio- logists on a helicopter-aided expedition, a department spokesman said. The scientists used in- struments called tell- urometers, which measure distances by determining the time it takes radio waves to travel 'from one point to an- other, and theodolites, which measure angles between the horizontal and mountain peaks. The official height of feet is based on the findings of a 75-year-old method which superimposes photographs of mountain peaks above the known horizon and measures angles from the photographs. The spokesman estimated the new calculations are accu- rate to plus or minus 10 feet. However, the adjusted height won't go into the record books until it is approved.
