LEASING National Identification Card Predictable Costs Frees investment usually less than S300 Adaptable to private individual as well as business Current model prestige Easy way to get second car supcnnr majors Phone 223-3537 LEASING business OTTAWA (CP) Solicitor- General Warren Allmand said Friday he is reviewing screen- ing procedures under which murderers are granted tem- porary absences from prison. But he said the rules govern- ing passes will not be made tougher. The minister made his statements to reporters after being pressed once again in the Commons about the case of Arthur Gagnier, 25. Gagnier was granted tem- porary absence from the Cowansville, Que., peniten- tiary in August, and has not returned Mr. Allmand had told Eldon Woolliams North) and John Diefenbaker Prince Albert) that stiffer temporary absence rules approved by Parliament last year were not retroac- tive. Gagnier is wanted in con- nection with a double murder in a Montreal suburb recently and Mr. Woolliams reiterated demands for stricter control over passes to murderers. Mr. Allmand said he will re- view procedures under which police, psychiatrists, security officials and others are check- ed before a convict can be granted a pass. But he continued to support temporary absences as a proven rehabilitative measure. Under legislation banning almost all capital punishment, a murderer is not eligible for temporary absence until two years before he is eligible for parole. The legislation was passed last year. The law says a jury may recommend no parole for 20 years. In this case a murderer would not be eligible for tem- porary leave for 18 years. Mr. Allmand said that Lest We Forget We pause each year on Novem- ber 11th to remember the many brave men and women who gave their lives for our country so we may live in Peace. On this day we will remember them. Towne Country Furniture WILL BE CLOSED ALL DAY MONDAY NOVEMBER 11th REMEMBRANCE DAY Towfle legislation was not made retroactive, and murderers in prison when the act was pass- ed still fall under the old rules. Thus Gagnier was eligible for temporary absence after three years, although he did not actually get a pass until he had served five years. Before he disappeared last August he had received 11 passes Mr. Woolliams demanded a change in policy and an end to the drift that is making socie- ty an unsafe place. Meanwhile, Mr. Allmand announced that a second group of reporters will visit St Vincent de Paul Peniten- tiary next week. He has received threats from two escaped convicts of a bloodbath in Montreal if he does not permit inspection of the penitentiary and make im- provements in conditions. He announced Thursday that representatives from each Montreal daily new- spaper have been invited. Friday he announced that the electronic media of Montreal and The Canadian Press will be invited to send representatives. This group would tour the penitentiary on the same day as the first group Tired pilot at fault in crash EDMONTON (CP) An ac- cident investigation report says weather conditions and a tired pilot were among the cir- cumstances that led to the crash of a Pacific Western Airlines Boeing 707 freighter aircraft near Edmonton Inter- national Airport Jan. 2, 1973. The ministry of transport report, released today, said a combination of factors seriously reduced operating safety margins immediately before the crash in which the five-man crew died The report cited blizzard conditions, unsuitable operational procedures and a tired pilot with minimal ex- perience with the 707 aircraft. The aircraft, carrying 86 cattle, crashed short of a runway while attempting to make a refueling stop on a flight from Toronto to Korea. Killed were four Vancouver men Capt Art Jung; first of- ficer Wally Doerksen; flight engineer George Dromer; and Loadmaster Keith McMahon. William Vance, project manager for PWA from Ed- monton, also died in the crash. The report, released 22 months after the crash, did not point to any specific cause, but said procedural and fatigue problems and operating safety margins were "seriously compromised by the time the aircraft entered the final stages of its approach which was being made in difficult weather con- ditions without glide-slope guidance to the runway in use."
