Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Tuesday, March 19, 1974 News In brief Tax charges dismissed CALGARY (CP) All but one charge and two counts of another of tax evasion facing city lawyer Neil German were dismissed Monday in Alberta Supreme Court. Chief Justice J. H. V. Milvain dismissed a joint charge against German and Medicine Hat Greenhouses Ltd. concerning the evasion of income taxes on a total of earned in the years 1965-69. He also quashed counts that German personally evaded taxes on income of between Dec. 31, 1964 and March 13, 1970 and failed to report income and filed false tax returns in April, 1966; March 1967 and March, 1968. The chief justice said the joint charge and counts one and two of the individual charge combined years outside the five-year limitation period with those that were within the limit. Troops move to Mozambique JOHANNESBURG (Reu- ter) Ten thousand Portuguese troops are being moved into Mozambique to add to the already there, South African Radio reported today. The radio, quoting reports from the Mo- zambique port of Beira, said the men were transferred from Angola. Provinces may be given right to set up banks Milk run to Phoenix VANCOUVER (CP) Three gallons of mothers' milk left here Monday for 22- month-old Chris Smith of Phoenix, Ariz., who would die without it. About 30 Vancouver nursing mothers donated the milk to save the child from painful inflammation and eventual death through a rare disease called acrodermatitis enterocathica. x Rob and Shelley Clark of Vancouver organized the milk donations. Rob Clark said, Chris is one of three persons alive with the disease and only eight cases are recorded. The milk shipped Monday would cost if supplied by a United States commercial milk bank, he said. Mr. Clark said the child needs 30 ounces a day which would cost a day at the price charged by the milk banks. Mush Samoyeds Trapper and Tia live on Grouse Moun- tain in North Vancouver, B.C., with their owner Tara Bell and are often spotted taking young skiers like five-year-old Jason Maloney of Richmond, B.C., for a brisk run. Preventive care in mental health OTTAWA (CP) Provincial governments would be given the right to set up banks and to buy up to 10 per cent of the shares in existing banks under pro- posed legislation introduced Monday by Finance Minister John Turner. It was promised by him at the western economic opportunities conference in Calgary last summer and is aimed at making the banking business more competitive. There now are 10 chartered banks in the country, with the five largest dominating the fi- nancial system. The proposed legislation would allow provinces to act as catalysts in the establishment of new banks. It also would allow incorporation of a bank by letters patent, rather than the current system of special act of Parliament. Finance department officials said the bill would allow provinces to buy up to 25 per cent of the voting shares in a new bank, but this would have to be reduced to 10 per cent within 10 years. No one is allowed to own more than 10 per cent of any bank, except during the establishment period. Also, provinces would be treated as associates so no four could join together and own a bank. Saskatchewan and Alberta, for instance, together could buy 25 per cent of a new bank, but they could not each buy 25 per cent. The banking community al- ready has expressed dis- approval over the provision would allow provinces to own up to 10 per cent of the shares in existing banks. Department officials said the provision was put in to make the bill consistent; to give provinces the "same rights as anybody else." Tory convention stiffens j policy on income, prices Development riles residents urSed for EDMONTON (CP) A riled group of residents in suburban Sherwood Park have threatened to chain themselves to the trees that they believe are likely to be cleared if a major shopping centre proposal is approved. A petition with 86 names opposes the development of a shopping centre because of the added traffic and potential for vandalism that would result from it. "We moved in here two months ago because it is quiet and away from the traffic, said Mrs. Beaton of Sherwood Park. "That going to change with a shopping centre. We'll be drowned out by the traffic with a parking lot right on our back yard." Cambodian troops routed PHNOM PENH (AP) Cambodian troops were trying to make a stand half a mile outside Oudong today after insurgent forces routed them from the provincial capital 23 miles north of Phnom Penh, the military command reported. Oudong, captured after, three days of heavy attacks, was the first provincial capital lost to the Khmer Rouge in four years. But since the dry season began in November, the Khmer Rouge have overrun three other iso- lated Tram Khnar and Vihear Suor. EDMONTON (CP) Mental health services should move more into preventive care, similar to that which led to major advances in public health, Dr. Charles Hellon, Alberta's director of mental health services, said Monday. Services such as retirement counselling, the assessment of potential problems in pre- school children and the provision of adequate services in new communities could be included in the preventive care field, Dr. Hellon said in an interview after a spfeech to a conference, on new trends in mental 'health sponsored by the department of health and social development. Such preventive care could produce developments similar to those in the public health field which improved the quality of life through better sanitation, nutrition and disease control. Dr. Hellon said the province can expect an influx of new young families from around the world into such communities as Fort McMurray in the Athabasca oil sands region. Planning .in such communities should include mental health services to deal with the problems of children, housewives and ethnic groups. Adequate sports and recreation facilities should be constructed to help combat isolation rand ethnic counsellors better able to understand the problems of Asians, Europeans and natives should be hired. OTTAWA (CP) Despite an attempt to scuttle the con- troversial Progressive Con- servative incomes and price control policy, the party's con- vention kept and stiffened the policy Monday. Meanwhile, party Leader Robert Stanfield told the con- vention he has a "single, over- riding purpose, and that is to form the next government of Canada." In his keynote address to about cheering delegates attending the three-day con- vention, Mr. Stanfield expressed confidence in a Conservative victory in the next election, but avoided discussing the policy questions the convention is dealing with. It was a workshop on eco- nomic policy that rejected the idea of graduating a freeze on wage boosts so low-income people could receive higher pay increases than those on higher incomes. James Gillies, MP for Don Valley and party finance critic in the Commons, was surprised by the decision. He Rail unions eye inflation OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Railway Labor Associ- ation, representing 16 railway unions, has predicted in a brief to cabinet that inflation will once again play a major role in contract talks due to begin later this year. The railway unions, repre- senting more than workers, won wage increases of between 22 and 25 per cent in a two-year agreement in January. Mr. Justice. Emmett Hall, a government-appointed arbi- trator, awarded them wage in- creases then that were substantially higher than those granted by Parliament last summer in strike-ending legislation. Mr. Justice Hall, a retired Supreme Court of Canada judge, took into account the impact of inflation in his award, after the unions made cost-of-living increases a major part of their argument.

VICTORIA (CP) The put- upon consumer of British Columbia took the spotlight Monday night as the legislature debated spending estimates of the department of consumer services. Allan Williams (L West Vancouver-Howe Sound) ques- tioned whether it was right for the provincial and federal governments to engage in income subsidization programs for farm product producers while consumers are faced with ever- increasing prices for the products. This appears to be the direction the governments are going in unless there is some .strong action from the provincial consumer services department, he said. Mr. Williams said it is obvious that the agriculture lobby at the federal and provincial level has been strong, "are we to believe that the consumer lobby is any less Consumer Services Minister Phyllis Young said the essense of her department is accessibility, information, education and redress. She affirmed that storefront consumer offices set up in four core areas. Victoria. Vancouver, the Interior and the northern part of the province. These offices will be staffed by consumer officers, investigators and other legal staff. October war. The Israeli command said two Israelis were killed and three wounded in exchanges Monday. Israeli military correspond- ents said the Syrians opened artillery fire at dawn and duels spread along the entire front. They said a Syrian tank was hit and set afire. Israeli civilians took refuge in shelters and all roads leading into the heights were closed to non-military traffic. Radio Damascus interrupted regular programs to report that the UN post near the Syrian village of Derbil was hit. The report said the incident "under- scored Israel's disrespect for the United Nations and all hu- man values." The communique said the wounded observers were a Danish major and a Swedish captain. The wounded Danish officer. Capt. Flemming Nielsen. 33, said at the Italian Community Hospital in Damascus the UN observers were inside a trailer flying the UN flag. -The trailer took a direct hit. he said. He did not say which side in- itiated the artillery exchange, but added: "It shouldn't have happened." said any incomes freeze by a Conservative government should include such a provision. He said, however, he feels the party can live with another policy proposal which would exempt agricultural prices from price controls. DISLIKES POLICY Jack Homer, a rancher and MP for Crowfoot, introduced the motion with the aim of de- stroying the policy of prices and incomes. "I'm against wage and price he told a reporter later, "I'm giving a way to get off that ticket. I think they'll (convention delegates) accept it." But the attempt was defused when party policy framers at the workshop accepter) the idea. They said it was never intended to freeze farm prices. Mr. Homer's proposal would exempt from controls any commodity that is seasonally produced or not protected by tariffs or quotas. Another proposal that ran into opposition was the plan to buy back at least 50-per-cent control of Canadian resource industries by 1990. Alan Heisy, a delegate from York Scarborough, said the proposal reflects, "an over- whelming fear of annexation" by the United States. SOUGHT 'NO' VOTE He invited delegates to "vote a resounding 'no7 to the proposal. A Toronto stockbroker asked: "Why is it the Conservative party seems to be going the route of Walter Gordon, against our neighbors to the He said United States in- vestors and firms have done a superb job of developing Can- ada with their capital and their expertise. Both were needed here. But Sinclair Stevens, MP for York Simcoe, said Canada's capital needs can be provided from within Canada. "This is no time for us to be hesitant and say we can't afford to buy our country back." Foreign ownership was a considerable drain on the economy in the form of outgoing'dividends and other payments. The workshop accepted a motion from Alberta delegates calling for a change in tax laws to permit any Canadian individual or corporation to deduct the full amount of investment for exploration and development of petroleum and mineral re- serves. Lady Harlech denies link with Snowdon LONDON (Reuter) Lady Harlech denied today as "ridiculous" a United States magazine report that she had been involved romantically with Princess Margaret's photographer husband, Lord Snowdon. The 36-year-old wife of Lord Harlech is quoted by the London Evening News as saying the report in the magazine McCall's that an affair between her and. Lord Snowdon, 44, almost led to a divorce between him and Princess Margaret was "just too silly for words." The report said she became friendly with Lord Snowdon before she married four years ago. Senate provision splits North MPs OTTAWA (CP) A louder parliamentary voice and more autonomy for the people in the two northern territories moved closer to reality Monday when the Commons completed second reading of two bills. One bill would permit ap- pointment of two northerners to the Senate. The other would increase the size of the Yukon territorial council to 12 elected members from seven while the Northwest Territories council would lose its four appointed members but increase its elected representatives to 15 from 10. Wally Firth (NDP Northwest Territories) and Erik Nielsen (PC the only two northerners in the 264-seat Commons, generally agreed on the bill affecting the territorial councils, but disagreed on the Senate proposal. Mr. Firth, the first Northwest Territories Metis elected to the Commons, accused the government of being paternalistic and colonial toward the North. He said the N.W.T. is ruled by an autocratic commissioner be- cause Ottawa refuses to make the post an elected one. Stuart Hodgson, the current Northwest Territories commissioner, and his Yukon counterpart. James Smith, are federal appointees. Mr. Firth said the commis- sioners, because of power given them by Ottawa, control everything from territorial budgets to beer sales. Mr. Nielsen, a lawyer who has represented the Yukon since 1957. said present territorial governments have less power than some municipal councils in southern Canada. He said Ottawa is abdicating its responsibility by not allowing the territories self-government. "It's a basic right. Why do we Northern Affairs Minister Jean Chretien said more reform is in the offing. He said Ottawa has tried consistently to broaden the autonomy of both territorial councils. Any accord on the councils bill was missing when the Sen- ate change, an amendment to the British North America Act. came up for discussion. Mr. Firth had serious doubts as to whether "any self-respecting northern would accept" a Senate seat. He said that if Ottawa really wants to increase northern representation in it should increase the number of elected members, not the appointed ones. NDP House Leader Stanley Knowles, who believes the Senate should be abolished, said that about the only thing the bill will do is help two more people cope with the cost of living. Senators receive annual salaries of and in tax-free expenses until they each the mandatory retirement age of 75. Mr. Nielsen disagreed with Mr. Firth's contention that the bill is a joke. "The member for Northwest Territories has really been snowed by the honorable member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Session comes to life over 'Tory task force9 pay Herald Legislature BBTCM EDMONTON A two-year- old controversy was revived in the Alberta legislature Monday as an opposition attack on "Tory task forces" brought on the first recorded vote of the session. The opposition lined up solidly against the government in the 42 to 22 vote on what had appeared to be an insignificant amendment to the Legislative Assembly Act. But the amendment sparked a renewal of the faror over the Progressive Conservative" government's move in 1972 to change the portion of the act dealing with payments to committees sitting while the legislature is not in session. The amendment was applauded by the opposition for requiring that annual reports henceforth be tabled from every government department in the assembly. However, it was the second part of the amendment, which separates the rules for compensation of members of committees appointed by the whole legislature from those governing compensation of members of government appointed committees, that caused all the trouble The rules are basically the same except that members of assembly committees "shall" be paid allowances of per day and members of government committees "may" be paid to WO a day while doing committee work. Opposition spokesmen said the government was attempting to make government committees appear as if they had the sanction of the entire assembly. They also object to expense money being paid back-bench government MLA's for what the opposition regards as party caucus work "We're being asked to legitimize legislation to allow the government to use the Legislative Assembly Act in a way it was never Socred Bob Clark. Opposition leader said. He said he did not object to government members doing research for the government but placing government committees tinder the act "smacks of having the approval of all 75 members." The act was not intended to legitimize the "poorly conceived and poorly thought out idea of Tory task forces." he said. But Ron Chiller
