Supreme Court of Canada rules: 'Indian women have no right to run estates of husbands' OTTAWA (CP) The Supreme Court of Canada, holding its first session during International Women's Year, ruled this week that Indian women do not have the right to administer the estates of their husbands. In a 5-to-2 judgment, the court upheld the validity of the Indian Act which allows the minister of Indian affairs IF THE PRICE OF MILK IS TOO HIGH CALLUS BEST-0-MILK (LETHBRIDGE) FOR SENSATIONAL SKIM AND PARTIALLY SKIM MILK POWDER Office: 328-7114 Res. 328-7505 to appoint a member of his department as administrator of the estate of Indians who die without leaving a will. Chief Justice Bora Laskin and Mr, Justice Wishart Spence, who disagreed with the majority judgment, said this provision of the Indian Act was contrary to the Cana- dian Bill of Rights which guarantees all Canadians equality before the law "It appears to be forbidden to Indians to bec.ome ad- ministrators of estates of In- dian intestates, where no other class is singled out for said the chief justice. The court decision upset a September, 1972, decision of the Manitoba Court of Appeal which struck out sections of the Indian Act on grounds they denied an Indian woman the right to administer the estate of her husband, contrary to the Bill of Rights. ____ Evidence was that Alex- ander Canard, a registered In- dian living at the Fort Alex- ander reserve in Manitoba died when struck by a car in July, 1966. He left no will. Under the terms of the In- dian Act, the .Indian agent from the Fort Alexander reserve was named ad- ministrator. Mrs. Canard then successfully applied to a -Manitoba court to become ad- ministrator. A trial judge granted her application and the Manitoba appeal court up- held his decision. The justice department then appealed to the Supreme Court of Canada. A govern- ment lawyer argued that both Indian men and Indian women are treated equally under sec- tions of the Indian Act dealing with estates.

"But from all es- timates, if we offered the service without subsidization the cost would just be too high.
