Minor squabbles, fender-benders clog small claims courtrooms MONTREAL (CP) Lawyers are fighting it, but people have been thronging to provincial small claims courts to settle disputes ranging from back-yard squabbles with neighbors to fender bending automobile accidents. Maurice Levasseur, assistant director of the courts, set up in 1972, says one such court in Montreal handles a case every 15 minutes and receives between 500 and 600 telephone calls a day. They all involve claims of less than There are nine small claims courtrooms on Montreal Island and 84 across the province. "We have all kinds of Mr. Levasseur said, naming accidents, damage suits, and actions to collect professional fees as typical. Similar courts exist in most of Canada, but in Quebec lawyers are barred from the small claims courtrooms unless they are litigants.

He said one recent case involved a woman who wanted Geographers meet at university Nearly 200 geographers from Western Canada and the United States will attend the annual conference of the Canadian Association of Geographers to be held March 15 and 16 at the University of Lethbridge.

The case was rejected because the woman was unable to prove the value of her destroyed sheets. In another case which has still not been settled, three train passengers sued a railway company because they were in a non smoking car and other passengers were smoking. Alleging damaged health, they brought claims of against the railway. "The judge asked CP Rail to enforce no-smoking regulations and put on special smoking cars, which was Mr. Levasseur said. "There is no judgment on the money yet.'' Statistics confirmed the popularity of the courts. DOCKETS FILLED Between Sept. 1, 1972, and Aug. 31, 1973, a total'of cases were accepted involving an average claim of Of that total, cases were settled. The average time between filing of the action and judg- ment was 43 days. "It is successful; there's no doubt about he said, "We're too busy. "Many of our customers tell us they never went to law before because it was too expensive." The Quebec Bar Association was an early opponent of the law which created the courts, and has launched a suit to have certain provisions declared unconstitutional. A spokesman for the association said it is in "complete agreement" with the principle of the court and with the attempt to speed and simplify small claims procedures. He said the association disagrees with the provisions which keep lawyers out of the small claims courtrooms. "Everywhere such courts exist people have the right to be represented by the spokesman said. "We feel it is an encroachment on that right." The law which created small claims courts allows persons to file a suit simply by filling out a form. A, clerk decides whether the case wili be accepted, but the petitioner has the right to ask a judge to review the case if it is rejected. A court date is set and both parties are required to appear if UIP defendant decides to contest the action. The judge hears and questions both parties, then renders a decision in writing. There is no appeal. Court costs are if the claim is less than and for claims between and Mr. Levasseur said the parties are usually in court for about 30 minutes. "Our only problem is a lack of he said. The delay in judgment is getting a little longer because there aren't enough workers to handle all the cases quickly. The average case now lasts about 60 days."

I just need to know if I am thinking straight, so when the time comes for me to be buried I won't embarrass my family. I can't stand those shiny, satin-lined coffins. Embalming has always seemed primitive, if not barbaric, to me. I want a closed coffin since I've yet to see remains so attractive that they should be on display. The conventional music one hears at last rites depresses me. I want something cheerful at my funeral. And since "Amazing Grace" is a long-time favorite, I'd like someone to sing it. Instead of a eulogy exaggerating my virtues, I'd prefer a message of encouragement to the mourners. In fact, I might even write a few words myself. My mother says I am crazy. Am I? What do you think? Edith In Nebraska Dear Edith: You don't sound crazy to me. But I hope you will make sure your wishes are carried out by putting them in writing and then placing them in the hands of a lawyer. You might even select the funeral director now and see that he has a copy. Then he and the lawyer could work together in the event that your relatives decide to do things their way. Dear Ann Landers: I have a friend who is ruining her marriage and her life because of her super-devotion to her mother. B's mother is partially handicapped but she is quite self-sufficient. She can drive a car, do her own housework, shop, travel. She also has a nice, strong husband. My friend believes it is her "duty" to go to her mother's house every day, cook, do the laundry, and run errands. (It's a 30-mile round In the meantime, her own home is a mess, her family eats frozen and canned food because she has no time to cook for them. The poor girl is always rushing and she's a nervous wreck. Don't you think she could cut her martyrdom down to twice a week and still be a dutiful daughter? Her Friend Dear Friend: To begin with, this problem is not yours, and you can be sure your advice will not be appreciated. Moreover, you are looking for a rational solution tc an emotional problem. Your friend is driven by a compulsion to please her mother. This is an old hang-up from childhood which will not disappear because someone tells her to "cut down the martyrdom." What the girl needs is counselling, and her husband should insist that she get it. Dear Ann Landers: I am a psychiatrist who would like to compliment you on your superb response to "Waiting to Hear." You stated your position on homosexuality in a way that should set the record straight for all time. I was not aware that Illinois was the first state to pass legislation declaring homosexuality between consenting adults no longer a crime. I believe when you quoted the statute you omitted two important words: "in private." Many homosexuals feel that because two people consent, they can do almost anything, anywhere. I believe the public has the right to protection against outrageous conduct, whether it is heterosexual or homosexual. Will you kindly set THIS record straight? A Washington Psychiatrist Dear Wash. D.C.: You are right on all counts, and I thank you for writing. Dear Ann Landers: Why doesn't someone write about the personality changes that occur in women when they go through the menopause? I am short tempered, suspicious, insecure, and I get depressed. I was never like this before, Ann. I'm sure it has a lot to do with the change of life. Don't tell me to take hormones because I am already taking them. They're relieving me of my hot flashes, but they don't help at all with the blah feeling and my lack of interest in life. Any advice? In The Dumps Dear Friend: The doctor who is giving you the hormones should be able to recommend sbme reading material. Your librarian is another excellent source. I also suggest counselling. A women who is "short- tempered, insecure and depressed" could use some professional help whether she's menopausal or not. OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO, Plumptre claims no sugar shortage EDMONTON (CP) There's no shortage of sugar but a tight world supply situation prevails, Beryl Plumptre, chairman of the food prices review board, said this week. In an interview following her address to a conference on food marketing, Mrs. Plumptre said Canada started buying sugar on open market a year ago after an international sugar agreement disintegrated. At the same time the United States removed its import quotas and began buying more sugar than usual. The factors, coupled with the lose of most of Australia's sugar crop, stockpiling by large users in anticipation of higher prices and international speculation in sugar have led to the current high prices, she said. "Your guess is as good as mine as to whether this is just a bubble or whether this will go she told reporters. She was.critical of egg marketing boards saying they must consider more than the producers' interests. "I will not accept an egg marketing system that balkanizes egg production. That to me is ignoring the Canadian market." Mrs. Plumptre said restricting Manitoba's production to protect producers in Newfoundland by deliberately down grading Manitoba eggs is not serving the. national interest. Newfoundland consumers ended up paying more than a dozen while Manitoba was selling its surplus to the United States at 42 cents a dozen, she said.
