Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Ihuiaday, November 7, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Judges removal sought EDMONTON (CP) A judicial decision that sparked some residents of Viking to petition for the removal of a provincial judge was upheld Wednesday by the appellate division of the Alberta Supreme Court. Lloyd Sarasin, 17, of Har- disty, was convicted in Viking of 31 charges, including 18 breaking and entering counts and 11 charges of attempted breaking and entering. Provincial Judge J. S. Sparling, who presided at the trial, suspended sentence and placed Sarasin on probation for 12 months. Crown counsel J. W. K. Shortreed, who appealed the sentence, said Judge Sparling's decision had resulted in a petition signed by some Viking residents calling for the removal of the judge. NDP candidate named EDMONTON (CP) A New Democratic Party can- didate in the last federal elec- tion has been nominated to carry the party banner in Ed- monton Kingsway riding for the next provincial election. Jane Weaver, defeated in Edmonton West in the July federal election, was nominated by acclamation to run in Edmonton Kingsway, a seat currently held by Progressive Conservative MLA Dr. Ken Paproski. Master plan studied EDMONTON (CP) A master plan to determine and guide future development of Canadian National's down- town real estate is being studied, C. F. Armstrong, CN's regional vice-president, said in a prepared release Wednesday. The plan will be consistent with the long-term interests of the city and CN, and will be the end product of a study by Community Property Research Ltd. of Edmonton. Traffic access to the 82 acres of land and interior traf- fic flows would be studied, as well as projected transporta- tion requirements. Two cited for contempt EDMONTON (CP) Two men who failed to return to court after a lunch adjourn- ment last week were cited for contempt of court yesterday by District Court Judge Roger Kerans, who said the ad- ministration of justice would collapse if witnesses did not appear in court. The men, Gary Gamborski of St. Albert, and Billy Tront of Edmonton, were present when an odometer fraud charge against Fuhr's Mer- cury Sales Ltd. began Oct. 30. Both men said they felt the case had concluded when the lunch adjournment was called, and left the courthouse to go to work. The men, who were arrested on warrants and held in jail overnight, were each fined and ordered to pay the detention and service costs. Trustees upset over grants EDMONTON (CP) The average 15-per-cent increase In per-pupil grants announced this week by the Alberta government won't solve the financial problems of school boards, the president of the Alberta School Trustees' Association said Wednesday. "I don't think it will really take care of inflation because it doesn't give the majority of boards the money they said Art Bunney. "We are still going backwards." Mr Bunney added that trustees are upset over the emphasis still being given to the elementary grades where enrolments are declining, while the senior high school grades where enrolments are rising received a smaller increase. The increases in grants were 18.8 per cent for elemen- tary grades, 13.5 for junior high and 11.3 for senior high. MOTION DEFEATED The association wrapped up its annual convention Wednes- day by defeating a motion calling for a change in teacher certification which would eliminate the concepts of interim and permanent cer- tification. Dr. Audrey Griffiths, first vice president of the association, argued that the interim teaching certificate should be replaced and teachers should be certified following the completion of certain educational prere- quisites. Other trustees countered tnat if teachers were granted permanent certification without an interim period, it would be hard to challenge the teacher's competence. B. C. region threatens to secede PORT HARDY, B.C. (CP) The Mount Wad- dington regional district, which covers the northern tip of Vancouver Island and a small chunk of the British Columbia mainland coast, is threatening to secede from B.C. and join Alaska. District officials say their threat is so serious that at last month's district board meeting they ap- pointed their own am- bassador to Alaska. The ambassador, Port Hardy Mayor Brian Klaver, said he has fired a diplomatic note to the Alaskan governor asking if he'd be interested in the square mile territory. "We are very dis- satisfied with the provin- cial government and, therefore, with the Cana- dian Mr. Klaver said. The district residents are unconcerned that the nearest Alaska point is 350 miles away while the provincial capital of Victoria is only 250 miles away. Alberta's rural population enters stabilization period EDMONTON (CP) Alber- ta's rural population has entered a period of stabiliza- tion after steadily declining during the 1960s, Premier Peter Lougheed told the Ed- monton Chamber of Commerce Wednesday. "Most rural communities have stabilized during the last three the premier said, adding that Alberta Government Telephones' (AGT) statistics indicate a 66- per-cent increase in installa- tion of rural business Salmo trial SALMO, B.C.

Outlining over-all economic strategy Mr. Lougheed stressed that revitalized rural growth and diversification of the economy were among the provincial government's top priorities "I despair of people who think this province, with its small political clout, can con- tinue to be dependent on depleting natural he said. "There hasn't been a major oil discovery in this province since 1966." LACK OF INCENTIVE Mr Lougheed said ex- ploratory drillers were leav- ing Alberta because they have "dried up their risk and Canadian money is nol available for exploratior because of lack of tax mcen tives. The provincial government will wait for the federal government's Nov. 18 budget before discussing possible contingency plans to deal with this problem, the premier said Obtaining fair prices for n-.tural resources, strengthen- ing small business, and developing processing and transportation systems in the Come to Calgary UNITED MOTORS Weather NAME NEW DIRECTOR OSHAWA, Ont.
