American consul returns Tories, NDP may align on privacy act changes OTTAWA (CP) There were indications Monday night that Conservatives and New Demo- crats might strike a temporary Commons alliance to force changes in the proposed privacy protection act. Neither party is altogether thrilled with the government bill, which would outlaw elec- tronic eavesdropping except by police in certain caoes. But they've said they'll give it second reading just to get it into the House justice com- mittee. There, they could rip it apart and send an amended version back to the Commons. Conservative House Leader Gerald Baldwin suggested dur- ing Monday's debate that Con- servative and NDP agreement on amendments would force the minority government to accept the changes or face defeat. The suggestion brought some NDP desk thumping. Jlr. Baldwin said it was members to be non-partisan and create a better bill. This is the third time around for the bill, which was before Parliament, but not passed, in 1970 and 1972. Now, however, its importance has been heightened by the Watergate wiretapping scandal in the United States. Justice Minister Otto Lang, avoiding any reference to Wa- ureed sneedy approval of the bill." It would make it mandatory for police to get court per- mission before using bugging devices in investigations. They could work without a permit for a 36-hour period but would have to get one before using in court any evidence gathered by bug- ging. Also called for 3s a prison term of up to five years for in- dividuals convicted of electronic eavesdropping. Watergate is a grubby affair an! that could occur in Canada be- lation to prevent it, said Gordon Fair-weather, Conservative jus- tice critic. The bill is a positive step, he said, but needs changes con- cerning police use of -wiretaps. He cited a section lumping "any other subversive activity" with espionage and sabotage as reasons to justify bugging by police. John Gilbert Broadview) said Canadians have been shocked and stunned by Watergate. Legislation was needed as much to prevent abuses by police as to protect individuals.
