Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 25, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Patient spent 13 years waiting for home YELLOWKN1FE, N.W.T. (CP) An Eskimo man who was released from a Manitoba mental home after 23 years spent 13 of those years just waiting for officials to find a home for him in the Northwest Territories. Paul Nukkerweenar was 24 when he was arrested for allegedly shooting another Eskimo whom he believed was having an affair with his wife. Mr. Nukkerweenar was judged unfit to stand trial and committed to the Selkirk men- tal health centre in 1951 where he stayed until his release last November. Bob Creasy, now an employee of the Territorial government but then employed at the Selkirk home, said the charge against Mr. Nukkerweenar was withdrawn in 1961 and since then the home has sought a place in his native Keewatin district where the Eskimo could return. "We needed some situation that would permit his gradual re-entry to the Mr. Creasy said. "Whether a person is ill or not you don't plunk him back into the north 23 years later. "The real breakthrough was being able to persuade the corrections people this man would be appropriate for them to have." The case was brought to light this week on the floor of the Territorial legislature by the council member for the Eastern Arctic, Bryan Pear- son.

Phone 922-4313 MONTREAL (CP) They're playing bingo in some of the nightspots that once gave Montreal a wide open reputation but residents are aghast at a new wave of spec- tacular crime and punishment. Quebec Provincial Police killed escaped prisoner Richard Blass in a hideout at Val David in the Laurentians north of Montreal Friday, climaxing a series of gun- fights since five convicts es- caped from St. Vincent de Paul Penitentiary Oct. 23. Early Tuesday morning 13 persons died in a shooting and fire at the Gargantua Bar- Salon in north-end Montreal in one of the most chilling crimes in Canadian history. On Wednesday, newspapers carried New York accounts of the conviction of Montrealers Frank Cotroni and Frank D'Asti.on two counts involving the shipment of nearly 20 pounds of cocaine from Mex- ico into the United States four years ago. Last Saturday the headlines announced the arrival home of Lucien Rivard, 59, from a U.S. prison. He was paroled after serving nine years of a 20-year sentence in a famed narcotics case with repercussions that shook the federal Liberal gov- ernment 10 years ago. Justice Minister Jerome Choquette launched a judicial inquiry into organized crime in Quebec in" 1972. The corn- mass for the victims and their families and also for the killers and their families. We all face the same God." Father Lanthier pictured the Gargantua, a topless nightclub, as an alien and un- wanted element in an essen- tially "village" and "dor- mitory" milieu, where the pace is strikingly slower than in downtown Montreal, three miles away. The small-town atmosphere of the district is enhanced by such features as curving out- door distinctive aspect of French-Canadian by small shops and elegant apartment buildings of three or four storeys. Passersby on Beaubien ex- change a brisk "bonjour" in the nippy winter weather. They turn into the neighborhood barbershop, the grocer's, the pharmacy, the caisse populaire, a credit un- ion, or perhaps the local pet shop. But the neighborhood dry- cleaning shop, the Chez Phil- ippe, located under the Gar- gantua in a two-storey building, is of the same fire that ravaged the nightclub.

In 1969, Mr. Drapeau told a reporter during a record wave of killings that the apparently indiscriminate slaughter proved there was no "underworld pope" on the scene. The chaos proved to him that no one command rul- ed the underworld as in the tidier old days. In such a picture, un- derworld vengeance may hit anywhere in the city, whether in the predominantly French speaking east end or the large- ly English speaking west. It was in the northeast sector that Tuesday's tragedy oc- curred. The church of St. Ambroise stands two short blocks along Beaubien St. from the Gargantua, where the 13 were killed in what police describe as the worst premeditated mass slaying in Montreal history. Abbe Louis Lanthier, a Roman Catholic priest for 37 years and pastor at St. Ambroise since I960, came to the door of his presbytery with a reporter and gazed at the now peaceful scene. "C'est is he said. "Our parish is a place for living and loving, not for killing. My heart is filled with pain. There must be justice, but not vengeance___ "On Sunday we will pray at TOWNOFLEDUC Preventive Social Services Director Applications will be received until February 15th for the above position with the Town of Leduc.

Box 187, Leduc, Alberta _____________________ TOC IVO breaking. The Gargantua nightclub killings of 10 men and three women, topping a crime wave which pushed the Quebec murder rate to one a day since New Year's, brought public demands for better police ac- tion. One newspaper declared editorially: there are dis- turbing reports that the high command of the Montreal Urban Community police is so riven by internal power strife that officers who should be concerned with public securi- ty are more interested in keeping track of the manoeuvres of rivals." Still, Montrealers often boast that residents can walk the streets with much greater safety, night and day, than in other North American cities of comparable size. The metropolitan district has a population of 2.5 million. The appointment of a crime inquiry commission was op- posed by Mayor Jean Drapeau, though he himself first won renown as a crime buster in the 1940s and 1950s. The city had been known as "Sodom on the St. Lawrence" infested with bordellos and gambling dens. Mr. Drapeau has maintain- ed organized crime no longer exists in Montreal as it did in the 1940s. But it is com- monplace, to hear people say the scene seems more chaotic in some ways now.
