Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Former Criminals Freed From Records Stigma One OTTAWA (CF) A bill de- signed to free former criminals from the stigma ot their records was passed by the Commons despite charges that it is not strong enough to be effective, live. The bill would enable persons who had been imprisoned or put on probation to apply for a par- don, which would be approved by the National Parole Board on proof of good behavior. Applications could be made two years after punishment had ceased in cases of summary .convictions or five years after ill cases of indictable offences. Following a pardon, records would not be disclosed without the consent'of the justice minis- ter. Arnold Peters fcaming) said the bill would be misunderstood by Die public just as last year's amendments .to the abortion section of the Criminal Code were misunder- stood. In that case people had thought abortion regulations had been eased, when in fact they had been tightened. In this case the public will think a roan's criminal record can be.expunged, when the bill would not accomplish that ajnr. If the bill was honest, he said, it would lorbid employers to ask a man whether he has a crimi- nal record, arid would make -e- view for pardon automatic in- stead of making a man apply for it. Asking for a pardon would trigger inquiries from police on. a man's character which would reveal his record to those asked. The Commons also passed a bill which would set up a na- tional law reform commission. Eldon ..Woolliams gary North) said he hoped the commiSvSion would not be used as a delaying mechanism when- ever law changes are called for. He also look tlic opportunity to dig at last year's Criminal Code abortion topical in the House the day after 36 women were removed from Hie galleries for halting proceedings by chanting slogans in favor of abortion on demand. Mr. Woolliams agreed with Mr Peters that last year's amendments did not make it easier (o get a therapeutic abor- fact they made it more difficult. Mr. Peters said that before the changes, one doctor in con- sultation with another could per- form an abortion, but now a person has to apply to commit- tees restricted to a few large hospitals. Earlier, Speaker Lucien La- m'oureux informed the Cout- mons that women who had gained entry to the government and opposition galleries had done so with forged passes. He said the incident was ot justifiable concern to Canadians who did not want Parliament disrupted by such organizations. But members should think c a r e f u 1 y before deciding to tighten security regulations. Tile question of the security of Parliament was referred to the Commons procedure committee. Ambrose H. Peddle (PC- Grand Falls-White Bay-Labra- one of the members whose name was forged, said he would ask the HCMP to investigate the Electronic Fliishers Tried Oul For Use In Military Bases OTTAWA (CP) A urinal that flushes electronically may sound like, a new peak in the indulgences of modern living. But the defence depart- ment, moldcr of intrepid fighting men, may decide to put them into every Canadian military establishment. The reason is that electron- ic urinals can save money. They were given a month long trial at Uplands base here and officials said today they saved enough water, fig- ured on an annual basis, to reduce the water bill by about Sue For 'Injuries' NEW YORK (AP) A moth er of three has sued North era Westchester Hospital for "for injuries suffered' when the hospital refused to perform a sterilization opera Hon on her.
