Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Juni 7, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 31 Storm abates over B.C. act VICTORIA (CP) The storm blustering around British Columbia's proposed Public Officials Disclosure Act finally abated last week when Attorney-General Alex Macdonald came up with some amendments. But before the dust settled, a couple of mayors and a handful of aldermen had thrown in the towel rather than tell all about their financial assets. The legis- lation will require elected pro- vincial and municipal officials and some public employees to file written statements twice a year disclosing their financial interests Candidates seeking public office will also be required to make their affairs public. Mr. Macdonald says amend- ments to the act will still "let the sunshine but most public officials are no longer afraid of getting burned. The amendments change the effective date of Bill 85 to Sept 1. and wipe out the contentious audit requirement that would have forced officials to file twice-yearly audited financial statements of companies in which they owned 30 per cent or more of the voting shares. "I'm only sorry some re- signed before the says Ross Marks, Union of B.C. Municipalities president, who spearheaded the campaign against Bill 85 in its original form. Mr. Marks, mayor of 100 Mile House, now believes that most of those affected can live with the amended legislation. Many claimed that the re- quirement for semi-annual au- dited statements of companies would be financially prohibitive for smaller businesses, would be unfair to business partners uninvolved in public life and would provide a definite advantage to their business competitors. Mr. Macdonald agreed to drop the requirement of a de- tailed profit and loss statement. But all elected officials and public employees serving on government the exception of courtroom are still required to file the names and natures of the companies in which they hold 30 per cent or more of the voting shares, plus the shareholdings, land and subsidiaries of those companies. Failure to comply could bring a fine of up to The attorney-general met another .UBCM beef by bringing in an amendment requiring that candidates for public office disclose their financial interests as well. This would eliminate any unfair edge new candidates might have over incumbents running for office. The only substantial change sought by the UBCM which Mr Macdonald did not meet was the request that disclosure files be kept in Victoria rather than at municipal offices, where they would be available to anyone who wished to see them. "But there are no major problems says Mr. Marks. CAREER OPPORTUNITIES Bus Drivers Required By B re water Transport Co.
