Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 24, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, Janucry 24, 1975 Quebec crime revenues cut VANCOUVER (CP) Organized crime revenues in Quebec has been cut by one quarter to one third since the Quebec crime commission began probing crime ac- tivities there two years ago, a commission member said Thursday. Judge Marc Corbeau, one of the three members of the Quebec commission, was here to speak at a police spon- sored seminar studying where the profits of crime go. The commissioner and Montreal police Sgt. Del. David Adamo, an investigator for the commission, told a press conference that organiz- ed crime rakes in enormous amounts of money and re invests much of it in organizations which threaten the public even if they are operating within legal limits. One organized crime group in Montreal made in six months and there may be five such organizations operating on a similar scale, the men said. Commissioner Corbeau said it is estimated that about 50 per cent of organized crime revenues are channelled into semi legal or legal businesses. This money often is used in shylocking of debtors, and to purchase nightclubs where gambling and prostitution flourish, he said. Even when money is channelled into technically legal operations, it is dangerous to the public because those running the businesses operate by criminal.standards involving muscle and pressuring. The commissioner would not comment on the mass murder of 13 persons in a Montreal nightclub this week, but he said that an increase in the number of murders in Montreal in recent years does show the effects of wars between crime groups. Judge Corbeau said one of the reasons for a drop in organized crime revenues is that through hearings of the investigating commission the public has become aware of 'the threat posed to business and citizens by criminal funds. The commissioner said many people make the mis- take of thinking of organized crime as a single structure. He said his definition of organized crime is any illegal activity which operates with continuity and supplies goods or service on demand. But he said many people still believe in the myth of organized crime as ex- emplified by the movie The Godfather. in (ft O III o o (0 o WE HAVE LOST OUR LEASE... SO ALL STOCK MUST GO! GO! GO!

French leader meets the people PARIS (Reuter) Presi- dent Valery Giscard d'Esta- ing dined at a picture framer's home Wednesday night in keeping with his promise to the French-people about making social contacts at all levels, the Elysee Pal- ace said Thursday. The president and his wife squeezed into a tiny dining room of a three-room apart- ment with Claude Cucchiarini, '46, and 11 family members and friends. They stayed until midnight, discussing everything from big game hunting to the cost of mainly steering clear of politics. Louise Cucchiarini said she cooked the whole tercress soup, perch with moussline sauce, steak gar- nished with tomatoes, cress and mixed vegetables, salad cheese- U.S. laws subject of talks WINNIPEG (CP) Exter- nal Affairs Minister Allan MacEachen said Thursday he has started talks with United States authorities with a view to ending, the situation whereby American law can interfere with exports from Canada. In a speech to the Winnipeg branch of the Canadian In- stitute of International Af- fairs, the minister said he seeks a change in American attitude on exports to countries such'as Cuba to go along with legislation now before Parliament. He was speaking on United States-Canada relations, par- ticularly the need for con- sultations such as those he has started, so that cross-border irritations resulting from domestic actions can be minimized. American Ambassador Wil- liam Porter made a similar plea in a strongly-worded and well-publicized speech here last fall. Mr. MacEachen mentioned the Trading with the Enemy Act of the U.S. which, among other things, forbids exports to Cuba and which has been used to hamper exports to Cuba from U.S. sub- sidiaries in Canada. "If consultation is to be used in this instance, as I think it should be, it would be our objective that com- panies doing business in Canada would not be deterred by the United States from do- ing normal export business. "Indeed I have initiated dis- cussions with the U.S. author- ities with a view to finding a satisfactory solution to this problem." The minister referred to bills that have received approval in principle in the Commons that would, in effect, prevent application of U.S. laws to companies in Canada.
