Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE June AHA prepares to dicker with help Hurlburt is for death penalty Incumbent Tory MP Ken Hurlburt was asked for his stand on abortion, capital punishment and labor unions at a meeting Friday night sponsored by the Christian Reform Church of Lethbridge. Mr. Hurlburt told the approximately 50 persons who attended the meeting at the Immanuel Christian School he voted for capital punishment when the house last voted on it in the fall of 1973. All the party Crimes earn youth 6 months in jail; woman gets four An 18-year-old Saskatchewan man charged with three counts of break, enter and theft and one count of break and enter with intent was sentenced in provincial court Friday to six months in jail. Alvin Brian Muskaug of Buffalo Narrows pleaded guil- ty June 20 to breaking into city hall, Silverwood Dairies, a Alberta Government Telephones building and the provincial court house.

Police said nothing was taken from the ACT. building and small amounts of money and a hard hat were taken from the other buildings. Muskaug was convicted in May of 1973 in Cold Lake, Alberta, of break, enter and theft and assault causing bodi- ly harm and was given a two- year suspended sentence. A 41-year-old Brocket woman was sentenced to four months in jail for a second li- quor offence within 30 days. Elsie Smith will be taken to Fort Saskatchewan jail to serve her sentence as there are no facilities at the Lethbridge Correctional In- stitution for women. Under a new court policy all people convicted of two liquor offences related to being in- toxicated, are automatically- sentenced to four months in jail. Upon going to jail they receive treatment for alcohol- related problems. Fort Saskatchewan jail has facilities to treat people with alcohol-related problems. leaders voted against it, he added. He said he was committed to capital punishment and in answer to a question he said he polled the Lethbridge con- stituency on capital punish- ment after the vote in the house. There is no Tory policy on capital punishment it's left up to the individual MP, he said. Mr. Hurlburt said when a person is sentenced to life im- prisonment it should be for the rest of his natural life. But he implied prisoners were getting too soft a life. "They have black and white TVs now they want color TVs." He said he tried to attend a hockey game down east but couldn't get a ticket, yet four convicts had tickets to the same game. He thought the government was more interested in reforming prisoners than helping the widows and children of murdered policemen. He was referring to the families of policemen murdered in Toronto in 1973. When asked what form of capital punishment should be implemented he said if he had the decision to make he wouldn't like to be hanged or shot but would probably choose the gas chamber. "I'm against wholesale Mr. Hurlburt said. The solution to reducing the number of abortions is to educate people early in life. Individual letters from groups rather than petitions were favored by Mr. Hurlburt on such issues as abort'on. "If we have unions they should all be Canadian unions not controlled by the U.S. or any other countries." Unions have backed the socialist par- ty in Canada the NDP, he said. "The pendulum has swung too Mr. Hurlburt stated. "There has to be a new deal. We have to try something else. The unions are so strong they will take over the government. "I think it's terrible when a few people tie up a whole he added. When asked for an alter- native to the collective bargaining system, Mr. Hurlburt said the "only one was to tie wages to the cost of living." Rev. Lambert Mulder, of the Christian Reform Church, told Mr. Hurlburt other can- didates were not invited because it would take up too much time. This way "we have a better idea what you and your party stand for" and you have a clearer idea how the people here feel. Gulls plan picnic raid A pack of predatory sea gulls stalked closer to three girls who enjoyed the sun on the grass near The gulls were apparently watching the progress of a picnic and hoping for a handout. The girls are (from left) Shelly Steed, 2926 12 Ave. S., Roxanne Laycock, 516 20 St. S., and Donna Passey of Medicine Hat.

Now is the time to consider AIR CONDITIONING from your 'Air Conditioning Centre of the South' CHARLTON HILL LTD. 1262-2nd Ave. South Phone 328-3388 Lethbridge's three provincial court judges, trained in the legal profession, say they have no objections to judges with no formal legal training receiving equal salaries. However, they all feel the day of the judge without legal training is drawing to a close. A judge is a says Provincial Judge George Lynch Staunton. They are doing the same work so they should get paid the same, he said. "I think the principle of pariU for provincial judges is a sound one." Attorney General Merv Leitch is announcing a hefty salary increase for provincial court judges in May said it was the government's intention to end the practice of paying legally trained judges more than non legally trained judges. Provincial judges with legal training now receive a year while judges without legal training there are now 20 in Alberta receive Provincial Judge Lynch Staunton doesn't think there will be any "further appointment of people who are not legally trained. With the complexity of the legal system it's felt it would be much better if legally trained judges are appointed." "It's very exacting being a provincial judge." he says.

Provincial Judge L. W. Hudson says the majority of the non legally trained judges on the bench now will soon be due for retirement. After they retire no more will be appointed. However, he says, he has no objections to everybody getting paid the same. It would be very difficult for a judge without legal training to preside over a case where two highly skilled lawyers were arguing over a highly technical point, he said. Even legally trained judges get mixed up and have to resort to law books. A nor. legally trained judge can't do that. Judge Hudson said. The Alberta provincial judges have an association which meets once a year. One of its main objectives is to upgrade the ability of judges. In the past provincial courts "tried a few drunks." Now they try 300 cases that previously might have gone to Alberta Supreme Court. The SMILEY'S PLUMBING CLASS LINED WATER HEATERS SI90 Invu Phone HBMTZ PRINTERS STATIONERS LTD. 324-9thSLS.

Lawyers are satisfied with provincial courts. They give "justice to the ordinary man in an economical way." Provincial Judge Hudson says. Provincial Judge A. H. Elford. who presides over provincial court in many of the communities surrounding Lethbridge. says judges "don't have to be legally trained but they all should be." Provincial Judge Elford says the provincial government has been more selective in picking judges.

FOX LETHBRIDGE DENTAL LAB 204 MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. a program to determine the best negotiating method well before the expiry on March of most current un- ion contracts. A resolution at last year's AHA convention required the extension, if possible, of provincial bargaining. And a task force set up by the association's employee relations committee has been charged with developing work plan for the negotiation study Brian McNally, a member of the Medicine Hat General Hospital Board and chairman of the task force says the plan for finding the best way to negotiate will have to be presented to the AHA. The AHA wants to extend provincial bargaining so it can reach standardized agreements with all workers at the same time, and have better communication with the unions, he says. Mr. McNally, who represents hospitals in the southern region of the province on the employee relations committee, told the last meeting of regional hospitals that he expects un- ions to be pressing for wage parity with their counterparts in Saskatchewan and British Columbia during the next negotiations. Certain hospital workers in those provinces have received substantial wage increases during the past few years. A demand for a higher cost of living provision is also ex- pected. Most hospitals negotiate with a variety of unions, he says These include the Cana- dian -Union of Public Employees, the Alberta Association of Registered Nurses, the Service Employees' International Union (a smaller group parallel to certified nursing aides and the health sciences association. Under the current bargain- ing procedure, hospitals can give their bargaining rights to the employee relations com- mittee, which negotiates with one union at a time. Not all hospitals are involv- ed as some retain their own bargaining rights and others are provincially owned and deal with the Civil Service Association of Alberta. Approaches to negotiations could range from mass negotiations between all hospitals and all unions at once to one hospital and one union at a time. MOVING?
