City Commissioners Prison lawsuit NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. (CP) Eight prisoners at the British Columbia Penitentiary say in a federal court action that they are being subjected to cruel and unusual punishment under indefinite solitary confinement. The prisoners are suing Her Majesty The Queen and Dragon Cernetic, institutional head of the prison, for declaration that their confinement, allegedly without charges or hearings, deprives them of rights guaranteed by the penitentiary service regulations. In a statement of claim filed in federal court registry Tuesday by Lawyer Bryan Williams, they say that tear gas has been discharged into solitary confinement cells where the prisoner has no chance to escape; that light bulbs in the 10 by five foot cells bum 24 hours a day; that there is no adequate ventilation and heat, and that only running cold water is provided, with a pint of hot water twice a week for shaving. The plaintiffs in the action are John Emmett McCann, Walter Alan Dudoward, Rheal LaMarche, Ralph Cochrane, Jake Quiring, Donald Oag, Keith Curtis Baker and Andrew Bruce. They also say that their confinement in the special correction unit has been ordered in some cases by persons other than Mr. Cernetic and that he has improperly delegated the authority given to him to order such confinements. Rail lines move costly WINNIPEG (CP) Premier Ed Schreyer said Tuesday Winnipeg and Manitoba should take a hard second look at the question of relocating rail lines outside of the city because the cost could well outweigh the advantages. He said the City of Toronto is now moving some rail lines back into the city after a huge relocation project. Mr. Schreyer met earlier with CP Rail president Ian Sinclair and other CP executives and was told the railway would not take the initiative in making the move to relocate. The premier interpreted this as meaning the city and province could expect "a fairly large bill" if the railway moved its huge central yards outside the city. Diamond rings stolen EDMONTON
