Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THI UTHIRIDOI HERALD Thunday, January 10, Rare charge laid A University ot Lethbridgf pre law graduate has been charged with representing a person accused of an indictable offense, contrary to the Legal Profession Act of Alberta. Trial date has been set for Feb. 7 at 2 p.m. in magistrate's court. Ernest Sillito, 23, was charg- ed by a member oT the Alberta Law Society in Lethbridge after David Grayson Barton, 16, was sentenced to three years in jail when he was found guilty Dec. 23 of possession of hashish for the purpose of trafficking Court was told the Legal pro- fessions Act prohibited anyone who was not a member of. the Law Society of Alberta to rep- resent a person accused of an offense which could be tried in a court higher than magis- trate's court. The charge stems from an appeal ot the unusually long sentence for such a young per- son. The appeal has been set for Jan. 3 in the Calgary court of appeals. The basis of the appeal is that Barton did not have prop- er counsel during his trial and was therefore not adequately defended. Following the trial, Judge L. W. Hudson o[ Lethbridge said he did not like sentencing a 16- year old to penitentiary but felt be had little choice after viewing the evidence presented. Company fined A Lethbridge firm was fined in magistrate's court when it was found guilty of failing to provide adequate information about its purchases to an in- spector of the Alberta Fresh Vegetables Commission. Court was told E. F. Mahc Ltd. of Lethbridge had failed to present the proper certifi- cates showing the amount and the name of the vegetable pro- ducer who had sold produce to it during an inspection visit by amember of the vegetable commission. An agent of the attorney-gen- eral in Lethbridge said the commission conducts research about the growing and market- ing of produce and is supported only by the vegetable produ- cers. The support is gained through a minimal tax on each sale. "Each produce company is supposed to keep a certificate of each sale and present the certificate to the commission on request so the proper tax may be he said.

There are an estimated uninsured motor vehicles in the province, and another which previously had the gov- ernment Green Card, all of which will be required to have at least minimum coverage. Minimum public liability and property damage has been set at although was considered. The difference between 000 insurance coverage and coverage is about a year. Many in the private sec. tor feel is insufficient, and efforts will likely be made in the future to increase the minimum. The death benefit would pro- vide if the head of a household is killed in a motor vehicle accident, if the spouse is killed and up to 000 for each child killed. A weekly indemnity of to based on 80 per cent of a person's salary, would be paid for disability or dismem- berment. Cost of the minimum cover- 'age has not been established but is under study. To assure that every Alberta motorirt is insured, even the bad risks, an Exchange is to be formed, the government spokesman said. All insurance companies do- ing business in Alberta will be members of the Exchange. If a person applying for in- surance is turned down by a company, the insurance agent will obtain certain details .from the applicant, phone the Ex- change and obtain on-the-spot coverage. Member insurance companies Federal aid asked for pageant Solicitor General Jean-Pierre Coyer has been asked to help with pians for The Sight, The Sound and The Fury, a histori- cal pageant planned for Leth- bridge this summer.

The "unsatisfied judgment fund" will be maintained bv the province as protect i o n against uninsured Alberta and out-ofHpToviDce motorists who arc responsible or partly re- sponsible for accidents, the spokesman said. Alberta motorists failing to produce a pink card for the po- lice at highway cheeks or acci- dents will be liable for the min- imum fine of If many motorists still are not obtaining the minimum in- surance, the proviDce may give further consideration to a sys- tem of providing motorists with two pink cards, one of which they would have to turn in when they purchase their li- cence plates. For this year, at least, mo- torists simply have to sign a document stating they have ad- equate insurance coverage to meet government require- ments. Licence plates go on sale March 1 and the new regula- tions go into effect a month later.

The hogs will be sold to as many buyers as possible, with (lie hog being donated back to the auctioneers. As soon as the largest total number of donations have been received, the hog will be sold for possession. All proceeds will go award the Sunrise Ranch in Coaldale and to underwrite some of the expenses of the residence for the Dorothy Gooder School. Keith Enrman, of Hurlburt Auction in Lethbridge said the hogs will be sold at different country points so as many peo- ple as possible can participate in the money-raising program. Last year for the first itme, the auctioneers had only one hog and it was moved from country point to country point, sold and re-sold. At the huge auction sale in the pavilion, the auctioneers raised This year per- sons with salable items are asked to drop them off at their nearest auction market.

Tat unnamed businessmen suggested by letter that the chamber cons 1 d e r supporting the location between 4tii and 6th Ave. and 2nd and 4th St. as an arena site. They suggested an arena on the site, coupled with a new post office building, location of the Alberta Motor Association office and expansion of Alberta Government Telephones prem- ises in the down town area would give the central busi- ness district a shot in the arm and help in enticing a hotel development downtown. The matter will be referred to the chamber's business af- fairs committee for considera- tion and recommendations. Consultants hired by the cdty will be investigating the site. At the request of district farmers the chamber decided Wednesday to ask the citv to consider later parking restric- tions beside the post office to provide parking stalls for post office box users.

The chamber's civic affairs committee is to study tile nut- ter and present specific rec- ommendations to the chamber for forwarding to council. Among items to be consider- ed are extending the 12 min- ute parking limit to 24 hours a day or until later in the eve- ning; creation of a 24-hour, 15- minute parking zone; and prob- lems of policing. The chamber was advised of a move by Montana chambers to get the governments of the two countries working together to keep the Chief Mountain highway near Waterton open until the end of October.
