Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IFTMBRIOOF IIERAID Mny 4, KeliH'lunl Parole board to restrict activities Proposed lN-tests OfTAWA (CF) The Na- tional Parole Board has deckled reluctantly to restrict its activi- ties at a time when some au- thorities are calling for a thor- ough revision of the whole sys- tem of granting paroles and t emporary absences from prison. The decision to at least tem- porarily discontinue a' four- year-old practice of visiting prisons comes as the need for reuew of parole procedures is being discussed in a number of areas. Tiie Senate legal and con- stitutional affairs committee is in the second year of a review j that takes in parole and tern-1 porary absences granted by the penitentiaries service. At the same time a report on paroles clone by Judge James Kugeson of the Quebec Superior Court is in limited circulation j and Solicitor-General Warren! AHmancl has said eventually it' will be made public. Thai leport is said to be far- reaching in some of its con- clusions and if implemented I v, ould mean en more work lor a board that is reported to worked so hard in recent months that two of its members became ill. It is reported that one recom- mendation is that some of the right of granting temporary ab- sences now exercised by the penitentiary service be given to the parole board. The additional work load that could come might be eased by a restructuring of the board, con- sidered almost inevitable by some parole authorities. One restructuring possibility is the regionalization of board operations. The headquarters of the board would remain in Ot- tawa, but much of the parole work would be done by boards operating exclusively in the five Canadian regioas. It also is considered possible that provinces will be asked to take over the parollihg of pris- oners under their those receiving sentences of less than two would remove about half the case load of the board. Tins provincial case load is' part of the reason that the pa-, role board has decided to sus- pend face-to-face dealing with federal prisoners in parole ap-1 plications. Since 1969 the board represen- j tatives have been visiting fed- eral institutions to deal with pa- role applications, while dealing with provincial paroles from the central Ottawa office.

Sales increased from mil- lion in 1971 to million in 1972. The company said interest on long term debt was mainly re- sponsible for its loss position. The interest was S3.9 million in 1972 and S4.3 million in 1371. Incema from its operations in 1972 was ?2.6 million as com- pared to S805.000 in 1971. Cash ilow was S3.2 million in 1972 and in 1971. Company president Victor Brown said in a report to share- holders that he was optimistic about the future. "During the year Sll.l mil- lion of long-term debt payable to the Honshu Paper Co. Ltd. and Mitsubishi corporation was redeemed and replaced by pre- ferred shares." he said. "This change will result in a substantial reduction in inter est costs and an improvement in working capital.

Parole board chairman George Street, who has been saying for some time that he needs an additional six mem- bers, finally decided the work was such he had to stop the prison visits. The big advantage to the prison hearings was that in most cases prisoners were given the decision on their pa- role applications immediately. Now prisoners will be inter- viewed by field -workers who will report to Ottawa. The board will meet here and decide on the applications and the de- cision will be sent to the prisoner by telephone, wire or mail. It seems unlikely that Mr. Street is going to get any imme- diate relief frcm the govern- ment to allow him to go back to prison visits. It would take an act of Parliament to increase the membership of the board and sources say there is no such legislation in sight for this sitting of the Commons. ARE CONTROVERSIAL Paroles are a controversial subject and it is questionable the government would want a debate in the Commons on the matter without providing for some basic changes in the sys- tem. That the subject is contro- versial is shown in remarks of the Atlantic judge who said the parole board has more pew er j than the Supreme Court of Can-1 ada. Provincial Judge.M. D. Har-' ley said in an interview Monday in Dartmouth, N.S.. that the pa- role board is ''without a moni- tor and there are no regulations over them." The board was not properly selecting prisoners for parole. The judge said this in t h e face of a steady tightening of paroles by the board in recent years. The tightening process started in 1970 when the board decided that there were too many viola- tions by men on parole. cause stir By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The next French nuclear tests over the South Pacific, planned for May or June, are making political waves in some coun- tries. Tugboats in Australia won't tug French boats. Fishermen in Peru demand that the tests be scrapped. Private yachts are reported sailing into the test zone. New Zealand is talking of sending a frigate to the site with a cabinet minister aboard and holding France responsible for any damage. In Britain, a Labor member of Parliament said fallout from last year's French test came down on the descendants of the Bounty mutineers on Pitcairn Island. Nobel Prize-winner Linus Pauling warned that the testa would increase abnormal births and cancer cases. In Paris, a member of the So- cialist opposition to the Gaullist government asked why the tests cou'd not take place in France if they are as harmless as the government claims. New Zealand and Australia plan to ask the International Court of Justice at The Hague for an injunction against the tests. To all the protests, the French government replies firmly that the tests will go ahead as planned. The French say the tests at the Mururpa Atoll endanger no cue including the populations of the Pacific Basin countries. The site is miles from the Australian and South Amer- ican coasts and 800 miles south- east of French Tahiti. Deputy Armed Forces Minis- ter Aymar Achille Fould t old the National Assembly in Paris yesterday that of all the fac- tors in the government's deci- sion to go ahead with tests this jear, the most important was "the necessity to ensure na- tion a 1 independence" for France.
