GREATEST CRUSHER The spotted hyena's jaws are reported to have the greatest crushing power of any animal. JOHN TURNER . . , Opposes Idea By THE CANADIAN PRESS Some of Canada's senior law officers agree with Justice Minister John Turner that Canadians shouldn't be forced to carry identity cards to be produced on police demand. A Cross-Canada survey by The Canadian Press shows little support for the system proposed by Quebec Justice Minister Jer-1 ome Choquette. A. H. Mackling, Manitoba attorney-general, said he would not object if the cards were issued oh a voluntary basis. "But having compulsory cards with finger prints and photos are objectionable and are a step toward a regimented police state." Justice Minister L. R. Curtis of Newfoundland said: "I have no objection to identity cards. 1 don't see anything wrong with the principle of it." COULD AID CITIZENS Attorney-General Gordon Bennett of P.E.I, said that although the matter had not been discussed by his government, he personally could see nothing wrong With the idea. "It could be a help to the individual citizen." Justice Minister Turner said | in an interview in Toronto Jan. 19 he opposed the idea. "You always have to weigh the security of the state against the privacy of the individual, the advantages against the disadvantages. "In this case, the advantages | are far outweighed by the disadvantages that would flow from | that kind of invasion of privacy." However, Mr. Justice Frederick G. MacKay of the Ontario Supreme Court said crime in Canada would be greatly reduced if Canadians carried the cards. He said honest men should not mind surrendering some civil liberties if it helps combat crime. Nova Scotia Attorney-General Leonard Pace said there would be little need for the cards in his province. "They can always be forged. The people you wanted to iden- j tify would readily do this. . John B. M. Baxter, New Brunswick justice minister, in a province of 600,000 people?" Other government officials said citizens already carry plenty of identification such as medical care cards and drivers licences. Attorney-General Arthur Wishart of Ontario said he is not as much against them now as he was when Mr. Choquette first came up with the idea but "I just believe they are not much use." "I also think the public does [ not need any more labelling," he said. "God knows we have | enough already." Attorney-General Arthur Ger-hart of Alberta said he agrees wilh Justice Minister Turner. "I don't think any kind of compulsory identification card is necessary. This is a free country." British Columbia Attorney-General Leslie Peterson said lie had "no comment."
