Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, March 9, 1974-THC IETHBRIDGE HERALD Controversial parole chief gets new job OTTAWA (CP) After 15 years in the controversial post of head of Canada's parole board, George Street is moving to what will probably be a less arduous and more lucrative position of judge. The justice department an- nounced Friday that Mr. Street, 58, has been appointed a county and district court judge in London, Ont, and will take up his new duties in about a month. For Mr. Street the appoint- ment ends a term during which he was Canada's first and only parole board a 24- hour-a-day job. He said Friday that during his tenure the board granted pa- roles and an average of 80 per cent of those were successful. "It worked out very he said, "we got a lot of people back into society, looking after themselves and supporting'their families." Before he took over the new parole board, which was created out of the old remission service, Mr. Street was first magistrate in Welland, Ont., and then deputy judge in juvenile and family courts.

He was the last surviving founder of the stores, which became one of Canada's largest department store business, with branches in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. OTTAWA (CP) Trade Minister Alastair Gillespie announced Friday that legislation will be introduced quickly aimed at keeping United States government hands off future export sales by Canadian companies. His statement followed the announcement by MLW Worthington Ltd. in Montreal that its nine Canadian directors out-voted one U.S. director Friday to proceed to negotiate a locomotive sale to Cuba despite the U.S. Trading with the Enemy Act. A second U.S. director of MLW was not aj the meeting, and the former U.S. board U.S. SIDE OF STORY Ports of entry: Times in Mountain Standard Time (Alberta opening and closing times: Carway 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.: Chief Mountain closed: CouJts open 24 hours: Del Bonita 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.: Kingsgate open 24 hoars: PorthiH-Rykerts 7 a.m. until 11 p.m.: Wild Horse7 a.m. to4 p.m.; Rooseville7a.m. to 11 p.'m.

"It's very complicated and I don't want to Stan Summerfield, head of the treasury department's foreign assets control office, said Friday. "But don't assume that it's as simple as it looks." Summerfield's office has the ultimate responsibility for licensing trade with Cuba and other "enemy" countries by Americans or U.S.-owned subsidiaries abroad. Studebaker Worthington, the New Jersey based parent company of MLW Worthington Ltd. of Montreal, had applied for a licence to allow its subsidiary to sell 25 locomotives to Cuba. chairman resigned before the vote. Mr. Gillespie told a news conference the new legislation will probably be plucked from the government's long standing competiton legislation. That would permit the proposed restrictive t'rade practices commission to forbid a Canadian firm from withdrawing from an export deal just to comply with a foreign law. The U.S. Trading with the Enemy Act prohibits U.S. companies and their subsidiaries from trading with various countries, including Cuba, without special exemption. Canadian trade department officials said the U.S. government probably will not prosecute U.S. directors of Canadian subsidiaries who obey such a Canadian law and deal with Cuba in future. Meantime, Mr. Gillespie welcomed the MLW decision to go ahead with its negotiations with Cuba over the opposition of its two U.S. directors. He had suggested earlier this week that the two U.S. directors resign from the board if that were necessary to complete the Cuban transaction. The U.S. law says no U.S. citizens may take part in dealings with Cuba. The MLW move seems to leave in limbo the request to the U.S. government by MLW's New Jersey parent company for exemption of the sale from the Trading with the Enemy Act. That application was supported by the Canadian embassy in Washington. Trade Minister Gillespie Welcomes locomotive sale to Cuba Air Canada ticket agents turn down offer TORONTO (CP) Tom Saunders, president of the Ca- nadian Air Line Employees. Association, said Friday the Air Canada ticket and reservation agents have voted 89 per cent to reject a conciliation report. He said Stanley Hartt, a Montreal lawyer who was the conciliator, has been appointed by the ministry of labor as mediator in the dispute and "we will see how mediation goes" before deciding to strike or work to rule The employees were entitled to strike against Air Canada Tuesday and Mr. Saunders said any action taken by the union will also affect those airlines which have contracts with Air Canada to provide passenger services in several cities across Canada. They are Eastern Provincial Airways, Pacific Western Airlines, Wardair, Aeroflot, Air Jamaica, Swissair, Scandi- navian Airlines, Lufthansa, Aeromexico, Transair, Czechoslovak Airlines and Suntours Ltd. charters. Government may lose Mr. Saunders said the con- tentious issues with Air Canada are pension benefits, a proposed 50-per-cent increase in parttime employees and rates of pay. Meetings with Air Canada under the. mediator will begin in Montreal today. 16 PER-CENT INCREASE Mr. Hartt's conciliation re- port, released Feb. 28 and signed by the Air Canada nominee to the conciliation board, proposed a two-year contract with a pay raise of nine per cent retroactive to Oct. 1, 1973, and a further increase of seven per cent on Ont. 1, 1974. million OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment may lose million on the heating oil it bought last fall as insurance against winter oil shortages, Harvie Andre Calgary) said Friday. He told the Commons that the government paid 52 cents a gallon for 25 million gallons of heating fuel it bought in Ro- mania and the Caribbean. Total cost was about million. With selling prices now down about 20 cents a gallon the loss when the oil is sold will be about million, he said. Supply Minister Jean-Pierre Cover, who has not released details of the purchase, made no comment on Mr. Andre's figures. He said he is not in a position to disclose the purchase price. Mr. Andre said in an inter- view later that he got his information from several oil industry sources in Quebec City. Some of the 25 million gallons is stored in Golden Eagle Ltd. tanks at Quebec. Warm winter weather and belter than expected inventories left the government without buyers for the fuel. Mr. Goyer said earlier in the week. He indicated then that it will be sold at a loss, something he described as a premium for having the oil as insurance. When the purchase was made, there was a serious threat of severe shortages, he said. The major worry was supply, not price. The government was "under tremendous pressure at the time and maybe, politically, they had to buy it." Mr. Andre said Friday. But Conservatives had warned that the price would be high and developments were proving them right. "They're going to take a bath on it" he said. CANAL LINKS The Welland canal, linking Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, is part of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Maximum weekly pay for ticket and reservation agents is Mr. Hartt also recommended a cpst-of-living increase to be paid after the annual increase in the consumer price index rises above four per cent and an increase in the percentage of part-time employees to 15 per cent from 10 per cent. Douglas Fisher, union mem- ber of the conciliation board, rejected the report and sug- gested a 15-month agreement which would provide pay in- creases of nine per cent retro- active to Oct. 1, 1973, and a further raise of five per cent on July 1, 1974. i Open Saturday!
