OTTAWA (CP) Solicitor- General Warren AHmand said Monday he will study a suggestion that bulk compensation payments be paid to penitentiary guards wounded on duty. The suggestion was made in the Commons by John Die- fenbaker said he knows of two guards whose life ..expectancy ..has been shortened., as a result of assaults by prisoners. Mr. AHmand said assaults are a serious matter and he promised to take the suggestion under advisement. Outside the Commons, Mr. Diefenbaker declined to identify the guards, except that they were injured in separate instances within the last year. He said prison guards continually are subject to dangers over and above the call of duty. He said those wounded should receive compensation as do members of the armed forces. Meanwhile, Mr. AHmand said outside the Commons that the situation at the Millhaven maximum-security penitentiary at Kingston, Ont.. still is bad. In the last couple of weeks there have been disturbances, including assaults on guards. Millhaven is said to have the most difficult prisoners in the country. Visits to the penitentiary have been banned since last week and Mr. Allmand said a search for contraband is continuing, with all prisoners forced to remain in their cells. Student job program trimmed He said the search has uncovered sawed-off baseball bats stolen from recreational areas, knives stolen from the kitchen and other contraband, including homebrew liquor. He said disciplinary proceedings will be taken against prisoners or any guards responsible for the disturbances. He was replying to a reporter's question about harassment of prisoners by some guards. Mr. AHmand said that in the past some guards exceeded their authority while others performed excellently. CALGARY (CP) Oil in- dustry spokesmen said Monday Federal Supply Minister Jean-Pierre Goyer's proposal for a federal- provincial crown corporation to develop the Alberta oil sands is "ludicrous" and "im- possible." Mr. Goyer told the Calgary Chamber of Commerce earlier Monday the Crown corporation should take over private plants now operating in the oil sands and enter into agreements with the United States, Western Europe and Japan to borrow billion for the oil sands project and return the loan in oil. "I am concerned that a man of Goyer's cabinet stature would be speaking on this with so many unsound said John Poyen, president of the Canadian Petroleum Associ- ation. "When you consider the United States is talking in terms of importing five to 19 million barrels a day, to think that any country would tie up billions of dollars of capital for such a small return is lu- dicrous." Mr. Poyen said Mr. Goyer "completely overlooks the in- dustry's ability to handle the situation." Compulsory vote denied EDMONTON (CP) City council defeated a proposal Monday night that would have forced all eligible voters to go to the polls for civic elections and plebiscites. Council turned down a suggestion that penalties be applied for failing to vote. Bill Alberta minister of mines and minerals, said he was not excited by Mr. Goyer's proposal, which was "full of inaccuracies." Mr. Goyer told the chamber and a news conference that he was making the proposal as a concerned minister and "not on behalf of the cabinet." Don't Overlook fur MIL NOOK Coming Soon!
