Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, May 2, 1973 THE 1ETH8RIDGI HEftAlD CRIME RATE DECREASING By STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA (CP) The rate of crime in Canada, even violent crime which has concerned the public in recent years, has taken a dip, Statistics Canada figures for 1972 show. An official of the organization said Monday figures for many years back are not readily available, but he thinks that it is the first such over-all dip in some years. The figures do not include ar- the rate of arson also is believed to have "stabi- driving offences, which continue to increase. Preliminary figures for all of- fences except traffic and arson show there were crimes per population over seven years cf age in 1972. In 1971 the figure was and in 3970 Violent crime dropped to 513.8 per from 516 in 1971. In 1970, the rate was -183.6 and in 1969 467.3. Violent crime 'Includes mur- der, attempted murder, man- slaughter, rape and other sex- ual offences, "wounding, assault and robbery. While the over-all violent crime rate is down there are slight upswings in some of the per each of population. INCREASES For instance: Murder: 2.5 in 1972, 2.2 in 1971 and '2." in 1970. Robbery: ci.G in 1972, 60.8 in 1971 and 02." in 1970. Rape: 0.7 in 1972, 6.6 in 1971 and 5.3 in 1970. Wounding: 0.9 in 1972, 9.7 in 1971 and 8.9 in 1970. Other assaults: 443.4 in 1972, 441 in 197.1 and 413.7 in 1970. The total crime figures do n6t include arson because those sta- tistics are provided by fire de- portments rather than police departments. Crimes against property showed a slight, decline to 4.203.3 in 1R72 "from. in 3971. But they still were above the of '1970. Breaking and entering, the main component of crimes against property, dipped to 994 from in 1971 and com- pared with 951.4 in 1970. FATALITIES DROP Meanwhile, the number of persons killed in motor vehicle accidents declined although the rate of driving infractions in- volving the use of liquor in- creased. The death rate in driving ac- cidents declined to 23 per 000 last year from 25.5 the year before. Pedestrians died at a rate of 4.7 compared with 7.8 in 1971. Impaired driving offences Jumped to 665.5 in 1972 and 615.9 in 1971 and 562.2 in 1970. At the same time, the rate of refusals to provide a breath Coal firm sample, an offence under the Criminal Code, went up to 55.3 in 1972 from 38.6 in 1971 and 38 in 1970. Narcotic offences continued to climb. The rate was 124 per in 1971, compared with 99.5 in 1971 and 75 in 1970. But the use of "controlled for in- levelled off. The offence was 8.9 per compared with 8.5 in 1971 and 5.4 in 1970. The use of LSD showed a con- tinuing decline. The rate of LSD voffences was 17 per last year, compared with 18.3 in 1971 and 19.8 in 1970. Britain sends mission to review fishing dispute LONDON (CP) Amid signs of escalation of the "cod war." a British mission flies to Ice- land this week to review terms Britain has already rejected in the dispute over the fishing grounds off Iceland. Although there is little optim- ism within the delegation headed by Lady Tweedsmuir, minister of state at the foreign office, the consensus in govern- ment circles is that the trip is worth making if only to demon- strate Britain's desire and de- termination to find a solution. In essence, the dispute boils down to Britain's refusal to rec- ognize the 50-mile fishing limit Iceland claims. Iceland says Britain must, or the Icelandic fishing industry which accounts for more than 80 per cent of the country's exports will be dan- gerously depleted. The Icelandic government hasn't revised the complex five- point plan which Lady Tweeds- muir, daughter-in-law of the former governor-general of Canada, rejected last month. It calls for Britain to cut its an- nual catch by 30 per cent and accept limitations on the size and number of its trawlers and the areas where they may Britain agrees to some form of catch a sort of honor rejects the other limitations which the Ice- landers say are essential to keep the British fishermen hon- est. The deeper British objection of the Icelandic scheme is that it is intended as an operation under which Britain, after 18 months, would accept the 50- inile limit. Meanwhile, tempers have flared again on the fishing grounds where Icelandic patrol boats have fired across the bow of a British tug protecting the trawlers. Also. Iceland has recently increased the use of aircraft and helicopters to spot trawlers and Britain is expected to adopt similar methods to warn trawlers of approaching patrol boats. The feeling in London is that if the new round of talks fails, a further escalation of incidents is almost inevitable. Both sides are showing increasing impa- tience with this cat-and-mouse game. So far. Britain, has declined to call in the Royal Navy to pro- tect British craft. Trawlermen, supporting the government, say that bringing in the navy would be "playing into the hands of casting her in the un- derdog role and swinging inter- national sympathy against Brit- ain. LIIVES CUT Actually, both Britain and West Germany refuse to recog- roze the 50-mile limit, but the Iceland government sees Brit- ain as the main offender. More than 50 British trawlers have had their lines cut by Icelandic gunboats since last September. Although most neutral observ- ers see grounds for progress if Iceland would accept Britain's offer to negotiate catch limits, the issue lias become a highly emotional one in Iceland with the government apparently fearing loss of face. Some glimmer of hope for Lady Tweedsmuir that the weak coalition government in Iceland might eventually be forced to a more moderate posi- tion came with the resignation of Communications Minister Hanibal Valdimarsson. Al- though he has been fighting strongly for a new policy on the fishing controversy, he insisted his resignation was not due to the handling o! the dispute. operates at loss VANCOUVER (CP) Ford- ing Coal Ltd., producing coking coal for Japan in the Elk River VaUey north of Spanvood, B.C., operated at a million loss for the first quarter this year.
