Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Flights normal despite strike Four rescued MONTREAL (CP) An Air Canada spokesman today said iiere the airline remains optim- istic that flight operations will be normal Monday, the day set for a possible worldwide, one- day walkout by members ot the International Federation of Air- line Pilots. "Until a firm decision is reached by Die pilots, we re- main optimistic we will be flying Monday and vye are carrying on our operations on that the spokesman said. The pilots say they will not fly for one day unless the United Nations takes firm action against countries which harbor air hijackers. The spokesman also said that in the event of a walkout by the pilots, all scheduled airline charter be halted. An earlier report from Kali- lax had quoted an Air Canada official as saying only interna- tional flights on the airline would be affected. However, the Montreal source said all activities will be halted. The airline said it shows the concern expressed by the pilots' association concerning the mat- ter of violence against aircraft and that it is continuing to di- rect efforts toward an improve- ment in security at its own fa- cilities. HIRE POLICE Air Canada recently an- nounced it had hired off-duty lolicemcn to screen passengers at several of Canada's major airporls. In addition, a closer scrutiny of passenger hand baggage is wing conducted along with the employment of metal detectors o ferret out arms or ammunition tion being carried or ludden in other luggage.

That was exactly the reason, the minister said. He indicated later that heads could roll when he determines who was respon- sible for the misinformation. Alicia Wiercioch, 35, poisoned herself, apparently because of a deportation order against her upheld by the immigration ap- peal board.

Bob Ruben of Calgary, presi- dent of North Canadian Oils Co. and an officer of the Independ- ent Petroleum Association of Canada, said the necessity of submitting prospective deals to a government review board be- fore they can be made final will kill a lot of transactions. The bill empowers a govern- ment agency to stop any sale of the shares or assets of a com- pany to foreign buyers involving more than live per cent of its ownership, unless the company can prove that the deal is ol "significant benefit to Canada." Mr. Ruben said most inde> 1 pendent. oil companies have shares traded on stock ex- of them on changes both in Canada and the U.S.- -and they cannot be cer- tain at any given momeal where five per cent of then- ownership is held. Large num- bers of shares are held in bro- kers' names for their custom- ers, and the company has no way of knowing who those cus- tomers are. CANADIANS IN CONTROL In the case of his company, Mr. Ruben said that perhaps 7( per cent of the shares are owned by Americans. But he maintained North Canadian Oils is a Canadian firm, controlled in Canada by its Canadian man- agement, trying to be good cor- porate citizens. He said compajiies like his like to move quickly into a new exploration area or similar en- terprise, and want 25 to 50 per cent of the action to make their investment worthwhile.

The takeover review bill does lot encourage more Canadian nvestment, he added. What Is eally needed is tax incentives or more Canadians to inves their ready cash in risk enter irise. The bill seemed con with secondary manu acluring industry, but had pos- sible adverse effects on the ne roleum and other extractive in dustries. Instead of coming into play 1 any transaction Involving fivi XT cent or more of the commo shares of a firm, the bill shoul apply only to share-dealings in volving 20 or 25 per cent o more, he said. SHOULDN'T BE HARMFUL Instead of requiring a firm show that-its-prospective shar purchase will have signUican jenefits for Canada, a firm should be required to show tha t would not be harmful or pre- judicial to Canadian interests.

Education ministers invited HEG1NA (CP) Edueallo Minister Gordon MacMurcb said today he has invited tl education ministers of Alberl and Manitoba to meet wit him next week to discuss com mon problems. Mr. MacMurchy said th meeting will take place June 2 in Regina, just before the n tional conference of the counc of education ministers her June 23-24. A meeting of the three pra rie ministers in charge of un versity affairs in Regina January resulted in the form tion of a three province pos secondary co-ordinating com mittee wliich will report to th prairie economic council. "I would like to see us e: pand our work with Manitob and Alberta beyond econom said Mr. Mai Murchy.

DISTANT CALLS Alberta residents made 43 million long-distance calls 1970. e incident had not been en- ely correct and it could have listed the House and the edia. Mrs. Wiercioch had in fact ecn ordered deported for tak- ing a job without permission from the immigration depart- ment. She .did not, he said, have the department's permission to work while her case was under appeal. The minister told the Com- mons June 9 that Mrs. Wier- cioch had been granted the right to work in 1970. She had, he said then, been ordered de- ported on other grounds and could have held a job pending an appeal decision. 'TRAGIC EPISODE' After Mr. Mackasey had set the facts straight, opposition spokesmen quickly called for re- vision of immigration regula- tions to prevent, as Andrew Brewin Green- wood) put it, any recurrence of such a "tragic episode." Last Monday, Mr. Mackasey repeated the misinformation about the case, saying: "The lady in question was given permission to work. "Press reports that she was being deported for working in Canada illegally are erroneous. When she appeared before a special inquiry officer and her application was rejected she was given permission to work In the interval while waiting for her case to be heard by the im- migration appeal board." The correct facts arc, as he set them out Thursday, that Mrs. Wiercioch was asked to leave the country voluntarily in 1S70 when she admitted to im- migration authorities that she had accepted a job utter signing a declaration that she would not di) so. That declaration was signed in September, 1968, when the woman applied for landed im- migrant status after entering the country as a visitor. She refused to leave Canada voluntarily and was called be- fore a special Inquiry officer in September, 1970, and a formal deportation order was issued. The immigration appeal board, a separate entity from the department, rejected her appeal March 15, 1972, to quash the deportation order. Her lawyer Informed the de- partment that a further appeal would be introduced in the Fed- eral Court of Canada. She died before that was considered. Mr. Mackasey said Mrs. Wiercioch would not have been forcibly deported until after court decision was issued.
