Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Wtdnndoy, May II, THE LETHtRIDCE HERALD 29 Former Criminals Freed From Records Stigma Man Is Fatally Stabbed By One Of His Chickens OTTAWA (CF) A bill de- signed to free former criminals from the stigma of 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 oh 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 in 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 1 misunderstood by the 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 ihad been eased, when in fact they had been tightened. In this case the public will think a man's criminal record can be.expunged, when the bill would not accomplish that aiic. If the bill was honest, he said, it would forbid employers to ask .a man whether he has a crimi- nal record, and 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 commission would not be used as a delaying mechanism when- ever law changes are called for. He also took tlie opportunity to dig at last year's Criminal Code abortion topical in the House the day after 36 women were removed from the 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 to 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- moureux informed the Com- mons that women who had gained entry to the government and opposition galleries had done so with forged passes. He said the incident was of 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. The 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 RCMP to investigate the case. Electronic Flushers Tried On I For Use In Military Bases OTTAWA (CP) A urinal that flushes electronically may sound like, a new peak in the indulgences of modern living.
