Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 13, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Justice Minister is a chauvinist? VANCOUVER (CP) Dr. Katie Cooke, chairman of the Federal Advisory Council on the Status of Women, says .Justice. Minister Otto Lang should be removed from of- fice for allowing his personal bias against abortion to interfere with his department's stand on abor- tion. She said the Justice Minister, who is a Roman Catholic father of seven, is interpreting the law and usurping the authority of the courts. "In a democracy we have a separation between the legislator and the enforcer of the law. Otherwise, the minister of justice becomes both judge and Ms. Cooke said in a Vancouver interview. She also said she believes the minister has impugned the medical profession by imply- ing that therapeutic abortion committees in Canadian hospitals were approving and performing unnecessary abor- tions. Ms. Cooke, in Vancouver for a three day meeting of the council which convenes today at the Hotel Vancouver, said the council has previously recorded objections to Mr. Lang's stand on other issues concerning women. "In September, Mr. Lang said he was looking for capable men to appoint to the bench. It was quite clear that he meant "men" as the male gender, and not she said. "Again, last month in Montreal, in a speech to a Jewish women's group, he said that even if a woman was less qualified, he would con- sider appointing her to the Ms. Cooke continued. "I mean, really, I don't think he understands what the hell it's all she added.

Former Supreme Court justice wants reforms in Saskatchewan CALGARY (CP) George Woodward lias found a new home for himself and his three remaining dogs. The 64-year-old pensioner, evicted from his rented farm- house two months ago for causing a nuisance, plans to travel to Vancouver Island next week, where he has been offered a position at an animal shelter run by a former Roman Catholic mother superior. Mr. Woodward has been liv- ing at the Salvation Army men's hostel here since he and his pack of more than 100 dogs left the farmhouse at Did- sbury, 40 miles north of Calgary. An Alberta Supreme Court justice upheld his landlord's eviction notice and ordered him to vacate. A few weeks ago, he wrote a letter to Mother Mary Cecilia of the Good Shepherd Animal Shelter near Mill Bay, 20 miles north of Victoria, ask- ing the nun whether she need: ed help at the shelter. "He sounds like just the kind of man I she said in a telephone interview. "I have a lot of trouble finding people who really love anima'ls." The 85-year-old nun and four assistants, including one other nun, house more than 500 ani- mals on a picturesque, 60-acre site overlooking Georgia Strait. About 10 years ago, Mother Cecilia faced mounting of- ficial church opposition to the shelter and' the sisters were told to close it and return to their priory. They refused, in- sisting work with animals was "God's work, a work of mer- cy."

REGINA (CP) A former Supreme Court of Canada justice has called for radical reforms in Saskatchewan's system of magistrates' courts. In a study commissioned by the provincial government, retired justice Emmett Hall says magistrates' courts are the most neglected in the provincial judicial system, despite the fact they handle 90 per cent of all court proceedings involving the average citizen. The study, released today, recommends more independence and higher salaries for judges in magistrates' courts, more support staff for them and better physical facilities. "Except in a few places where the court has access to facilities in some provincial courthouses, the magistrates carry on their judicial func- tions in an amazing variety of dance halls, legion halls, church basements and other premises which are virtually firetraps with no plumbing, erratic heating, no witness rooms, poor acoustics, all contributing to a lowering in the public mind of the ad- ministration of justice as a public function." Support staff is just as necessary as facilities, Mr. Justice Hall says: "At the present time in most rural areas the magistrate is judge, court clerk, reporter, collector of fines, operator of the recording device and in some instances janitor." In addition to proposals concerning magistrates' courts, the study recommends: legal education for judges, with perhaps a third of all provincial judges assigned to participate each year in program of seminars and lectures. of the practice of imposing court costs on per- sons receiving summary con- victions. New gov't plant will wreck others SURREY, B.C. (CP) George Spetifore, president of the British Columbia Coast Vegetable Co operative, says there will not be room for two potato processing plants in the province when the Co op, with provincial funding, builds its proposed million processing plant. At present locally grown potatoes are turned into french fries, mashed potatoes and flakes at the Fresh Pak plant in Burnaby, B.C. af- filiated with the Eastern McCain's Foods chain. Mr. Spetifore and Delta MLA Carl Liden say the plan; to be located in Surrey or Delta, B.C., and to employ about 300 people, will enable the local growers to market their produce without having of the ap- pointments of all justices of the peace so that a new system of better trained, better paid justices of the peace can be started. enlargement of the jurisdiction of the district court to include divorce and matrimonial cases and removal of the limit on the value of lawsuits that may be tried in district court. In his concluding remarks, Mr. Justice Hall says "what stands out as essential is a greater recognition by government that the, judicial and adjudicative process-re- quires more funding than has heretofore been made available." In an earlier report, Mr. Justice Hall recommended that the magistrates' court system become in effect a un- ified family court dealing with cases ranging from juvenile FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE IT'S ON Our CATCH-UP 75 SALE We're selling all our new 1975 AMC cars at over our cost at UNITED MOTORS CO.

David Wolf, Students' Union President, said Saturday the students will ask Advanced Education Minister Jim Foster to provide the the university needs so it can meet the workers' demands. The non teaching workers, members of the Civil Service Association of Alberta, are demanding a mid term cost of living adjustment of a month or. seven per cent of basic wages, whichever is greater, retroactive to Sept 1 1974. The university has agreed to the increase, but said it has only sufficient funds for the increase to be effective Jan. 1. University officials said they asked the government, for ad- ditional funds to. cover the settlement but was told the university would have to do with funds already approved by the government. Mr. Wolf said the students support the demand of the workers and understand the situation the university is trapped in. "It is our education at he said.

The Fresh Pak plant, said, is running on two shifts having laid off the third shift when the current world economic crisis reduced the demand for processed potatoes. Mr. Gibson said he was by Mr. Liden's statement that Fresh Pak imports potatoes from Manitoba and Nova Scotia for processing. "This j'ear for the first time I've managed to use 100 per cent locally grown potatoes in Fresh he said. Previously, he said potatoes were imported into B.C. to fill the McCain Label contract. Mr. Spetifore said the Co op plans to process about 000 tons of potatoes a year. At present the local crop yields only to tons a year, but the co op expects more local fields to be put into potatoes.
