Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, November 1, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 5 Police unhappy with wiretap laws Hints at inquiry Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan (right) continues a debate on the beef industry with Bert Hargrave (PC-Medicine Hat) in the lobby following an emergency debate on the issue in the Commons in Ottawa Thursday night. Mr. Whelan hinted strongly to reporters that he will order an inquiry into the plight of the hard-pressed beef producers. Consumer group slow reporting rotten eggs OTTAWA (CP) Canada's wiretap legislation appears to be reducing police wiretapp- ing as civil libertarians hoped it would, although police are said to be unhappy about it. Solicitor General Warren Allmand, the minister respon- sible for the enforcement of the act, said this week he is Speed limits start soon VICTORIA (CP) The new reduced speed limits in British Columbia will start go- ing into effect next week, the department of highways said today. A department statement says the reductions will start next Monday on Vancouver Island and the lower mainland, and will be extend- ed to other areas of the province during the next few weeks as new signs are manufactured. In next week's changes, priority will be given to routes One and 99, where the limit will be reduced to 60 miles an hour from 70. telling police to give the law an honest try, and in the meantime catalogue what they think are its bad points. The law, which came into effect this summer, stipulates that police may not bug without a judge's permission and that 90 days after a bug has been removed the victim of a wiretap must be in- formed. However, a judge may rule that notification can be delayed. Wiretapping, other than by police and security officials, is outlawed under the legislation. Mr. Allmand said he has been told that police sometimes are not bugging because they fear the necessi- ty of sending out notifications to wiretap victims will result in the disclosure of under- cover men or investigations. The law says that attorneys- general and the solicitor-gen- eral or their agents may ask a judge for a delay in notification. But police say they have no way of knowing in advance what a judge's decision will be. In some cases police bugg- ing continues when a judge can be shown that other means of investigation have been tried without success. The RCMP concedes that it has sent out notifications but would not say how many. Justice Minister Otto Lang has said he still disagrees with the notification clause but added he is awaiting reports. The significant thing to both federal ministers will be whether judges are granting the extensions. Whatever the feelings of po- lice, civil libertarians are con- tent. Gordon Fairweather Fundy Progressive Conservative justice critic, said he has heard of discon- tent in one attorney-general's department. "If that is so it's all to the he said. Stuart Leggatt (NDP-New who sought to make wiretapping even YAMAHA ORGANS New and Used COLLEGE MALL Phone 328-3694 tougher tli-an it now is, says the legislation seems to be working successfully and that it appears to have stopped frivolous wiretaps by police merely seeking information. He said he does not believe the legislation reduces police ability to fight crime but it does add a bureaucratic- nuisance to police work. Mr. Leggatt hopes eventual- ly Canada can ban all wiretap- ping. Clay Powell, assistant depu- ty attorney-general for On- tario, said recently that the Ontario government is careful when it brings in applications for bugging. "We're in the he said. "The police say they're hamstrung, and the other side says it s an invasion of privacy. We're trying to find a balance." WANTED!

PLEASE PHONE 329-3244 OTTAWA (CP) The Con- sumer Association of Canada (CAC) knew eggs were rotting in storage for two months be- fore it wrote to Prime Minister Trudeau July 26, the special Commons inquiry into egg marketing was told Thur- sday. Maryon Brechin said in rep- ly to questions from Don Mazankowski (PC Vegre- ville) that the delay in making the findings known was due to the CAC's dependence on volunteers. "We are all Mrs. Brechin, past president of the consumer group, said. "It's a slow process." "We don't just dash out on things like added CAC president James O'Grady.

Mr. O'Grady said the CAC was opposed to national mar- keting boards and asked the committee to inquire into the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency's (CEMA) financial transactions. He said his group, with a na- tional membership of had information that CEMA had borrowed million from a chartered bank in May and when the bank refused to ex- tend the credit the marketing agency got agriculture depart- ment backing for an ad- ditional million. Mrs. Brechin said the na- tional marketing agency does not work and producers in many parts of the country are withholding the levy imposed by CEMA to cover marketing losses. The CAC is not opposed to provincial boards since a cer- tain amount of market control seems necessary and they appear to have worked well except for the chicken and egg war that had provinces closing their borders to sister provinces and led to creation of CEMA. Mr. O'Grady said in reply to a question from David Orlikow (NDP Winnipeg An eight-page brief to the committee included a CAC re- quest that an inquiry be made to "determine if the present control of integrated operations and corporate en- tities is damaging to con- sumers and the poultry in- dustry and whether they should continue to remain ex- empt from anti-combines leg- islation."
