The prince took rope walks, swung across chasms, scaled walls as well as through the water pipe to end the course with a first-class pass. RCMP charges outdated OTTAWA (CP) RCMP Commissioner M. J. Nadon has dismissed as outdated allegations that some members of the force's drug squad use violence and other illegal tactics in the line of duty. The commissioner, in a pre- pared statement Monday, was responding to part of a CTV W5 program Sunday night. "For the most part, the issues of alleged misconduct happened approximately two years ago and, in some in- stances, he said. They were "investigated fully, resulting in the dis- ciplining of some members, including dismissal, and, in one case, criminal prosecu- tion and conviction." Commissioner Nadon said RCMP policy prohibits the use of improper or illegal methods and any allegations are investigated promptly! The W5 charges focussed on a former member of the Vancouver drug squad as well as a lawyer and several ad- dicts. They said the Van- couver squad traffics in drugs, beats people, steals, commits perjury and uses entrapment. Former RCMP corporal Jim Hunt, who spent 16 years on the force, said the RCMP regularly traffics in heroin!

SOUTHEASTERN DRILLING INC. 304 Royal Bank Building Edmonton, Alberta T5J 1W8 Tel: 429-5865 Mr. Hunt was forced to retire in July, 1973, but no reason was given. Sidney Simons, a prominent drug defence lawyer in Van- couver, said the RCMP "give people licences to traffic and either encourage or condone that trafficking and sometimes a very large scale." Commissioner Nadon said Monday that the Vancouver drug squad is doing an out- standing job of law enforce- ment. "It is indeed distressing to have their efforts eclipsed by disclosure of a series of in- cidents, which have long since been resolved and publicly aired." But, he said, Mr. Simons will be interviewed by the RCMP "in regards to his allegations." "Any fresh allegations are receiving the immediate attention pf Assistant Com- missioner E. W. .Willes, com- manding officer, E division, Vancouver." Commissioner Nadon, say- ing only that Mr. Hunt was dismissed from the force "for said it was unfor- tunate that, "the reprehensible actions" of a few officers should be used to undermine public confidence in the RCMP. B.C. rents increased VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia government is raising the rent in provin- cial public housing projects, David Davies, chairman of the B.C. Housing Manage- ment Commission, said yesterday. Letters are being sent to about persons telling them of the increase, to be effective in May at the earliest, he added. Mr. Davies said the govern- ment intends to raise rent in stages until it reaches 25 per cent of each family's income. The increases may be more than the 10.6 per cent allowable under the Landlord and Tenant Act for 1975 but the provincial housing com- mission is exempt from this rent increase ceiling, he said. For 1975 the following ceilings will be set on the increases: a month for any senior citizen living alone. a month for a senior citizen couple, a family on welfare, or a family with one two wage earners. a month for any other family with three or more working people. Mr. Davies said the current average rent for provincial housing ranges from about a month to a month, with an average of about Immigration continues sharp climb OTTAWA (CP) Immigra- tion continued its sharp climb during the iirst nine months of 1074, increasing by 38.8 per cent over the same period in 1973, the immigration depart- ment reported Monday. Between Jan. 1 and Sept. 30 last year a total of per- sons arrived as landed immi- grants, more than the corresponding 1973 figure, the department said in its quarterly immigration bulletin. The figures, together with more detailed statistics and comparisons for earlier periods in 1974 show over-all immigration for the year could exceed Immigration Minister Robert Andras responded in October to soaring immigra- tion and fears of high un- employment with new regulations to tie immigration more directly to jobs. However, the regulations, which penalize prospective immigrants 10 points on the 100-point admission system if they do not have pre-arranged jobs or skills to fill positions in worker-scarce areas, will not be felt for some months. Mr. Andras said aim of the restriction is 'to stabilize immigration temporarily at about persons a year. The government wants to hold immigration at this level until a new policy can be introduced sometime in 1976. The new policy is to be based on an immigration green paper outlining alternatives to be released soon after the Commons returns Jan. 22 from its Christmas recess. The latest figures show con- tinued high immigration flow during the summer months. At the end of June last year immigration for the first six months had reached up 47 per cent over the same period in 1973 and 92 per cent over 1972. Of the persons ad- mitted by the end of September, received landed-immigrant status as a result of the 1973 program to encourage persons illegally in the country to declare themselves and "make our country your country." Major sources were Britain, the United States, Portugal, and India, followed by Hong Koflg, Jamaica, the Philip- pines, Greece, Italy and Trinidad-Tobago. Proportionately fewer immigrants were headed'for the labof or 40 per cent, compared with 892 or 50.8 per cent during the first nine months of 1973. The balance of in 1974 represented children, spouses, fiances and students. continues... stereo records each 8-track tapes each Get the new year off to a rousing start with big stereo sound!
