Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE IETH8RIDGE HERALD Saturday, July 24, 1971 Maynard selected tax study chief EDMONTON (CP1 Provin- cial judge Lucien Maynard has been appointed head of a royal commission which will examine how financial responsibilities should be split between provin- cial and municipal govern- ments. Fred Colborne, minister of municipal affairs, said here the commission will look into "the fairest, most economical, effi- cient and equitable means" of financing UK services provided by each level of government. Sources of revenue, allocation of specific percentages of tax sources to each level of govern- ment and provincial grants to local governments are all areas the commission will examine. Judge Maynard, who was the Social Credit government's minister of municipal affairs from 1936 to 1943 and attorney- general from 1943 to 1955, will take a leave of absence from the bench during the study.

Phone 328-5447 Police state 111 sight -Sykes CALGARY (CP) Mayor Rod Sykes said Friday that po- lice stale conditions are ap- proaching and urged an appea' to an Alberta Supreme Court decision which overturned a rul- ing by the old Calgary Police Commission. The locally appointed com mission, of which the mayor was chairman, was disbandet July 1 and replaced by one formed under new provincia' legislation. The court ruled July 5 thai the old commission did no1 have the power to convict or suspend two constables it fouru had used unnecessary force against a citizen. The mayor said in a prepared statement that the old commis sion was given power over the police department, including discipline, by provincial legisla tion and a city bylaw. "Without this authority, we are approaching the 'police state' the knock on the doo in the middle of the night wit] the citizen having no one ti turn to for redress. "I do not believe the citizen of Calgary are prepared to tol erate this and I am advised by the commission's legal advis ere this is not the correct interpretation of the law." The commissidn ruled Ma; 13 that constables used unneces sary force in questioning Eric Unruh while he was en route t work June 28 and ordered four and-six-month suspensions. Counsel for Constables Mich ael Frederick Beal and Gordo James Herr appealed to the Su preme court. CARPET and LINO (Complete Free Estimates! No Obligation!
