Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, June 6, 1979 New weapon for forces OTTAWA (CP) Canada's ever-modernizing armed forces are about to acquire one of the ultimates in sophisticated weap- Defence Minister James Rich- ardson announced in West Ger- many Tuesday that, starting next year, Canadian NATO ground forces will be supplied with a surface-to-air self-de- fence missile system known as Blowpipe. The defence depart- ment here released details of the announcement. 100 systems ordered from Short Brothers and Harland Ltd. of the United Kingdom will cost a total of million. De- liveries will be over a three- year period. Blowpipe is a 40-pound mis- sile launcher with a built-in guidance system. Shoulder- launched by one man or fired from a vehicle, it is kept on tar- get by keeping the launcher pointed at an aircraft after the missile has been fired. Mr. Richardson, visiting the Canadian forces in Europe, said a final contract still is being negotiated by the department of supply and services, responsible for all government ex penditures. Mr. Richardson said the Blowpipe system will be ac- quired for Canadian forces in Europe and for 2 Combat Group, stationed at Petawawa, Ont., part of Canada's com- mitment to NATO's northern flank. CONSIDERED U.S. SYSTEM The Canadians decided on Blowpipe after considering both it and the Red Eye system used by the United States Army. Britain will take its first de- liveries of the system at the same time as the Canadians. STILL SELLING FOR LESS1 STERN'S CUT-RATE FURNITURE 314 3rd Street S. Phone 327-3024 The- Blowpipe missile has been described as sort of a "controlled dart." Shaped like a small aircraft, with air foils in front, it is radio controlled to the target. Canadians plan to use it as the last defence for air fields against enemy aircraft that somehow have made it through more sophisticated defence sys- tems. But the weapon also can be used as "anti-aircraft support for troops. Mr. Richardson said the million includes ancillary items, spare parts and publications, targets and missiles. The trade department was negotiating with British author- ities for suitable offset work for Canadian manufacturing firms. A trade department official said he could give no details of such negotiations.

Mall 20th Avenue and Mayer Maarath Tel: 328-7011 Sykes libel case appeal thrown out OTTAWA (CP) The Su- preme Court of Canada, in a 5 to 4 decision, dismissed here an appeal by Mayor Rod Sykes of Calgary against a libel con victim arising from a 1969 dis pute with developers over a multi-rafllion dollar shopping centre. The Alberta Supreme Court awarded Robert J. Fraser, a lawyer for two corporations in volved in the project, damages after the mayor ac cused the developers at a news conference of a breach of prom ise. The decision, upheld by the courts appellate division, sub- sequently was appealed by the mayor to the Supreme Court of Canada. A central argument in the case was whether the mayor's statements were libellous against the lawyer personally Mr. Fraser was a spokesman for the two companies in nego- tiations with the city. In the majority judgment, by Mr. Justice Roland A. Ritchie, the court ruled the defamatory words published as a result ol the news conference "might well have been taken to have been written and spoken" aboul Mr. Fraser in his professional capacity. The judgment was concurred in by Chief Justice Gerald Fau- teux, Mr. Justice Douglas C. Abbott, Mr. Justice Ronald Martland and Mr. Justice Wil- fred Judson. Mr. Sykes was assessed court costs. The dissenting judgment, written by Mr. Justice Bora Laskin and concurred in by Jus- tices Emmet M. Hall, W. F. Spence and Louis-Philippe Pi- geon, argued that Mr. Fraser pould not serve as a spokesman in matters of mutual concern for the developers and stand apart from them in the libel ac- tion. "This is not a case where the plaintiff has been singled out as one who has acted discreditably either as a person or as a pro- fessional man." At the news conference, Mayor Sykes said the com- panies, Carma Developers (North) Ltd. and R. C. Baxter Ltd., both of Winnipeg, had practised deception and misled city council. Tory leader takes attack in stride OTTAWA (CP) Con- servative Leader Robert 5tanfield has apparently taken in stride an attack on govern- ment bilingualsim policy by his predecessor John Diefenbaker. A spokesman in Mr. StanSelds office said Tuesday that "as a general rule" he does not comment on speeches made by other members of the party. He was follownig that general rule in the case of Mr. Diefenbakers speech. The former prime minister told the Commons Monday that the government's resolution on bilingualism in the public serv- ice was a "sham and hypoc- risy" aimed at getting votes in Quebec. Mr. Stanfield, on the other hand, has urged the gov- ernment to strengthen the reso- lution by putting it in the form of legislation. The Conservative leafier, In the Commons for Mr. Diefenba- kers speech, looked dis- interested throughout and did not applaud after it was over. The resolution asks Parlia- ment to reaffirm a set of nine goals leading to a functionally bilingual public service by 1978. Davidson named by broadcasters JASPER, Alta. (CP) The Western Association of Broad- casters Tuesday chose Jack M. Davidson of Winnipeg to repre- sent prairie region broadcast- ing stations on the board of dir- ectors of Broacast News Ltd. for a fourth two-year term.
