Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, Junt LETHBRIDGE FLQ kidnappers may have slipped out CARBONNEAU LANCTOT PARIS (CP) Quebec liberation-front kidnappers may have slipped out of Paris secretly but French authorities declined to speculate or shed light on their movements. A Canadian embassy spokesman Wednesday described as "very plausible" rumors and reports that the kidnappers, who arrived from Prague June 20, may have left for Algeria. The spokesman said the embassy has been trying to assess the official French attitude towards the Quebec separatists and how they happened to come to Paris. Authorities confirmed that the separatists, Jean-Marc Car- bonneau, Yves Langlois and Jacques Lanctot, arrived last Thursday accompanied by Mrs Lanctot and Anne Jocelyne Tal- bot. Quebec police said Langlois also was known as Pierre Seguin during the October 1970 episode in Montreal when British diplomat James Cross was kidnapped. He was released two months later when the kidnappers, members of the Front de Liberation du Quebec were given government guaran- tees of safe conduct to Cuba. French authorities apparently have assured the Canadian em- bassy that no visas were issued to the kidnappers on their ar- rival. This led many observers to conclude that the FLQ group may have left France a day or two after their surprise landing at Charles de Gaulle airport last Thursday. However, Canadian diplomats did not get all their questions answered. An embassy official said that on some questions the French authorities replied that answers would be provided Four kidnappers were put on the Canadian government plane to Cuba in December 1970. The fourth, Jacques Cossette-Trudel. may have remained in Cuba. There have been reports in the last few years that some members of the group were unhappy in Havana and wanted to go to Algeria. Arsenic in tea poisons workers MISSISSAUGA, Ont. (CP) Seven refinery workers in nearby Port Credit who sud- denly fell ill on the job this spring were poisoned by arsenic in their tea, police said Wednesday. They said they are seeking "a mentally deranged person" in connection with the poisonings, at first blamed on a gas leak. Six laboratory employees at the Texaco Canada Ltd. re- finery became sick April 1 and were taken to hospital with acute stomach pains. The seventh poisoning was May 29, when a man became ill after drinking tea in the re- finery's instrument repair shop. Insp. Lew Lawson of Peel regional police said the victims would have been killed if the poison had been put in coffee instead of tea. "Fortunately the tea bags absorbed most of the he said The story of the poisonings appeared Wednesday in a weekly newspaper, Mississauga Times.

Jim Coffer, president of Local 1005, told five federal election candidates at a public meeting on the inflation issue that he intends to break the law by urging union members to go on strike "if wage and price controls are brought into Canada." Progressive Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield has proposed a 90-day freeze on prices and incomes followed by flexible controls for the next 18 months to two years. Mr. Coffer said that if the Conservatives come to power as a result of the July 8 election, and if they pass legislation im- plementing controls, he will advocate violating the Labor Relations Act prohibition against illegal strikes. "It will be a strike against the he said. "At the moment, 35 per cent of our purchasing power has been eroded since we signed our last he said. The local's current three-year contract expires in 1975 and it would not be able to bargain free of controls. Lincoln Alexander, Conservative member of the last Parliament for Hamilton West, defended his party's policy on price and wage controls. "We believe the nation is facing the greatest crisis since he told the audience of about 100 persons. "We have in- dicated through our policies that something must be done."
