Edmonton taxpayers face lu'ke EDMONTON (CP) City taxpayers face an increase of 6.4 mills In property taxes this year, following approval Tues- day by city council of a mu- nicipal mill rate of 30.9 mills. The rate means an average increase in residential property taxes of this year. The public school board pre- viously set its mill rate at 47.03 mills for 1972. The 6.4-mill increase is one of the largest ever authorized by city council, but is far short of a projected 15-mill increase forecast earlier by city finan- cial officials.

Montreal is often said to be a city of two cultures. But it is also a city of two city of two faces. One is the face vigorously promoted lo Ihe world as part of a high-pressure tourist at- traction campaign. This is the face built up by Expo soon to be given an added slickncss by Ihc Olympic games, and carefully sustained in between by all tiie services and activities a city of this size can bring !orlh. Bui Ihe other face is one that never gets a mention in those expensively-produced visitors' brochures. This is the face of shabbine-ss, violence and cor- ruption. It isn't very pleasant. livery so often, just to remind Montrealers and Ilie rest of Ihe world tJiat it st.il! exists, Uic frothy but thin veneer that cov- ers this city is torn away and the liidden and submerged side once more appears. The latest eruption started last week after three of the top union leaders in Quebec were jailed for one year for contempt of court for urging 210.000 strik- ing public service workers to ig- nore injunctions forcing them back to work. The men o u 1 s Laberge, Quebec Federation of Labor president, Marcel Pepin, Con- federation of National Trade Unions president and Yvon Charbonneau, Quebec Teachers Corporation appeal the sentences and stay at liberty as expected. They preferred what even radical separatist politician Rene Le- vesque suggested was unneces' sary martyrdom and, sur- rounded by of their cheer- ing supporters, entered Orsain- villc prison last Tuesday. They were followed yesterday by 33 more union officials suddenly decided to drop their appeals and attempt a bid at martyrdom themselves. The reaction, in Montreal and across the province, was quick to appear. Public services and other employees walked off their jobs in protest against the sentences, radio stations were taken over by agitators support- I ing the common front of unions, and threats of violence last week forced six Montreal news- papers to cease publishing for a day. Common front spokesmen are still urging massive grass-roots action to make the government capitulate. In Montreal, the situation Is unsteady. The city certainly hasn't been closed doHTi. But neither has the common front campaign of agitation collapsed, in Quebec but across Canada it's confusing, to a y the least. So confusing, that while a major background feature in one Montreal newspaper was declaring that the common front was losing steam, a front-page slory was telling how 650 Port of Montreal office workers had walked off their jobs in sympa- thy with the jailed leaders.

Although there is no author- ity in Alberta legislation for the government becoming involved In the early stages of labor- management negotiations, Iho Conservative administra- tion intends to do so. cs li males, "We will telephone or visit things iire say, ,Mk, in Alberla in Ihe area of no authority in leglsla- rinn't tion. but it's in your interests."

Schools, liquor stores and construction sites also continue to be lavorile strikebound places. In short, nothing is sure any more. Support for the common front waxes and wanes. You may work today, you may not. Of course, the complele and ut- terly crippling shutdown the front would like to see has not materialized. But the frightening thing is Ihe influence the common front has on certain etcmcnls, Many workers have made It plain they do nol want lo join in the protests. But they say they are powerless to act against Iheir union leaders' There have been charges Uiat sympalhy strike votes have been rigged by ll.e radicals. Construction workers have said they feared violence from 'goon squads' if they didn't quit work. The planned campaign of agi- tation and disruption has suf- fered some severe setbacks. One of the biggest was the rejection Monday night of a sympathy strike call by some transport workers. If the transport workers had walked off their jobs thousands of other Monlrcalers just wouldn't have been able to go to work. But apart from the odd bright spot such as this, the situation in Montreal is deadly serious. Hardly a handful of the people who grabbed control of radio stations, schools and hospitals and who have committed out- right acts of violence and van- dalism have been arrested by police. In fact, the police are strained to the limit just attempting lo fend off the roving bands of goon squads out to harass the average worker from doing liis job and earning his paycheque. Supporters of the common front have said there can be no stopping the capaigu until the provincial Liberal government of Quebec Premier Robert Bourassa gives in to their de- mands. Mr. Bourassa has been stand- Ing lirm. The next few days will see which side wins oul. They will see whether in Quebec the mi- nority can break Ihe govern- ment of the majority, or where the minority can actually be- come tbe majority. The result is bound to have immense ramifications not only in Quebec but across Canada loo. But whatever happens in the future the glittering image of Montreal has again been tar- nished by violence and what many arc saying is edging ou a site of open anarchy. For some the glitter will never be quite as bright again. OTTAWA (CP) A resolu- tion tu-ging the Canadian Labor Congress membership "to re- move Ihe Liberal government" if Prime Minister Trudeau in the next election still has to be dealt with at the CLC's week- long convention. The resolution did not come up Tuesday during debate on the congress economic policy statement but, an official said, it may come up when the politi- cal education committee deliv- ers its report later this week. 'Hot' dog case CALGARY (CP) A "hot" dog case was sent lo Alberta Supreme Court afler Garry B. Chalmers, 24, of Calgary was committed for trial Tuesday on a charge of possession of stolen property. The property: A German shepherd dog, worth Wayne Fox, a dog trainer in Airdrie, Alia., told provincial court two dogs were stolen from his kennel Feb. One of them a German shepherd be could identify by a tattoo mark on a leg was recovered May 11. Detetctlve John Dardis said Fox took him to a house in southwest Calgary where he re- covered tbe dog. Chalmers said be found the dog behind a bush, the detec- tive told court. Submitted by Vancouver's Local -152 of the Uniled Brolher- hood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, the resolution says the Trudeau government "delib- erately created mass unemploy- ment to counter inflation." The policy statement of tho economic committee, adopted by the delegates, had some harsh criticism of federal hand- ling of the unemployment situa- tion. It said: "The tragic fact is that nono ol this had to happen. High un- employment was deliberately engineered in the most cold, brutal and calculating manner, wilh a callous indifference lo (he fate of hundreds of thou- sands of iiapiess victims. "Anti-inflation policies, incap- able of dealing effectively with external pressures, accom- plished Mllle more than putting countless Canadians on the dole. "Tbe federal cabinet, advised by an antiquated Ottawa bu- reaucracy, bulb totally bank- rupt of modern economic ideas, managed to render a phenome- nal disservice lo Ibis nnl inn's econoniv Ihc like if which has never been .seen before." The CLC's policy statement on foreign ownership and invest- ment was another hot issue ap- proved by Ihe delegation alter some severe criticism of HIP cenimillce lhat prepared the document.
