LAMB 4 NELSON LTD. 433HOUMTVIUA6E LETHMNE, ALBERTA Ben Ginter's damage suit thrown out VANCOUVER (CP) Millionaire B.C. brewer Ben Gmter's suit for damages against Northwest Sports was dismissed Thursday in the British Columbia Supreme Court Mr. Justice Richard Anderson ruled that Ginter had not suffered any loss as a result of an investment in Northwest, parent company of the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League. "After viewing the plaintiff's case in the most favorable light, I cannot find that he has proved loss or damage of any sort whatsoever." the ludge said. Ginter alleged in his suit that he was induced by a fraudulent prospectus to buy worth of shares and debentures in Northwest. The court was told earlier he bought the shares in December, 1970, and sold them to Senator Ed Lawson for in November, 1973. In his judgment, Mr.- Jus- tice Anderson said he was unable to find evidence of fraud or negligence of any kind. The judge noted that Ginter, in addition to his profit on the sale of the shares, also received in dividencds. He said Ginter was not entitled to hold the shares to make a capital gain and at the same time hold the defendants liable for interest on the investment. During the trial, lawyer Hugh Legg, acting for Northwest and co-defendants Coleman Hall and Cyrus McLean, argued that there was no authority that entitles a litigant to interest in a claim for damages. Government outlines legislation French official language in Quebec QUEBEC (CP) French is to be made the official language of Quebec under a wide-ranging legislative program outlined' in the speech from the throne Thursday. Legislation is to be introduced to make French the language of the law and government, at both the provincial and municipal levels, while at the same time clearly defining the place of the English language in the province. "Quebec linguistic policy will recognize the cultural rights of the francophone community and will assure for each Quebecer respect for his language and his identity in major sectors of human said the speech, read by Lt.-Gov. Hugues Lap- ointe. 'A language board is to be set up to oversee implementation of the policy and to assure a permanent base for the promotion of the French language. However, details of what place the English language would retain, particularly in the field of education, were scant and Premier Robert Bourassa shed 'little light on the subject during a news conference following the address. He said the public would have to wait until legislation is presented to see if it entails repeal of 1969 legislation allowing parents the right to choose the language in which their children will be instructed. Criminal charges weren't laid EDMONTON (CP) Criminal action against directors of P.A P. Holdings Ltd. was recommended to the provincial attorney general in 1970 but charges were never laid, Ken Rootes, director of prosecutions for the Alberta Securities Commission, said Thursday. Mr. Rootes was testifying before a judicial inquiry, now completing its seventh week, into the failure of P.A.P. and a subsidiary, Cosmopolitan Life Assurance Co. He said he made two reports to the attorney general, which were subsequently referred to a private law firm, and did not know why charges weren't forthcoming. One of the reports, dated July 6, 1970, cited evi- dence that P.A.P. and another company which held shares in Cosmopolitan. Sioux Holdings Ltd., prepared false balance sheets, said Mr. Rootes The Sioux balance sheet for 1967 said the company transferred Cosmopolitan shares to director Albert Jaasma to secure a loan. But the shares were actually sold and the proceeds went to P.A P., Mr. Rootes claimed. He said John Olthuis of Lacombe, Alta., a director of P.A.P., Cosmopolitan and Sioux, was responsible for preparation of the false balance sheet and should have been charged under the Criminal Code. P.A.P. directors Peter Van Rhyn and Mr. Jaasma, both of Vancouver, and Dr. James Lampard of Red Deer should have been charged with "issuing such a Mr. Rootes said.

Federal government right proposed Employee lockout report tabled By VIC PARSONS OTTAWA (CP) The federal government, as an employer, should be given the right to lock out employees when it is involved in contract disputes, an extensive report on public service bargaining recommends. The report, which could be the basis for reforms of laws applying to unionized federal employees, was tabled in the Commons Thursday by Allan MacEachen, privy council president The study makes a series of recommendations on legal changes but adds that the law regulating employee- employer negotiations has generally worked well and should not be "recast drastically." CAREERS Required Immediately for Lethbridge Centre Superintendents Carpenter Foreman Labor Foreman APPLY MR. LEN TETREAULT POOLE CONSTRUCTION LTD. 4th Ave. A 2nd St S., Although cautious with their comments, officials of some public service unions com- mended the report prepared by Jacob Finkelman, chairman of the public service staff relations board. The only comment about the lockout proposal came from the Public Service Alliance of Canada, which said it emphatically opposed the suggestion. Mr. Finkleman says it is un- iikely the government would lock out workers to make them comply with job terms and working conditions, but it might regard lockouts as an effective weapon in cases of rotating strikes. His report defends the right to strike in the public service, but predicts cautiously that adoption of his recommenda- tions should lessen the likeli- hood of strikes. MIGHT NOT WORK The study says that final offer bargaining method which allows an arbitrator to choose what he feels to be the more reasonable proposal from union and management as the basis for a binding award- should be permitted when both parties consent. But he adds that he is not convinced it will work in prac- tice. "It assumes that collective bargaining is, or can be induced to become, a highly rational process; experience does not support this assumption. Val Scott, chief executive officer of the member Professional Institute of the Public Service, said his group wel- comes "the chance to ex- periment." The institute em- braced final offer selection as a goal last year. Among other recommenda- tions of the report are that: Basic benefits, contributions and characteristics of public service should not be subject to bargaining, but unions should be allowed to participate more in discussions on super- annuation.
