Bees face destruction RED DEER (CP) The uncontrolled use of pesticides on farms could lead to the destruction of the honey bee population, a spokesman for the Alberta Beekeepers' Association says.

Milvain, chief justice of the supreme court trial division, ruled that the Oct. 16 civic election made irrelevant anything Mr. Hayter may have done during the council's previous term. Action Committee chairman Chris Harder brought the matter to court, alleging that Aid. Hayter had voted on matters in which he had a pecuniary interest. Aid. Hayter's lawyer said Mr. Hayter denied any im- propriety, but his re-election to council meant "these earlier matters cannot affect his status now." The judge awarded costs to Aid. Hayter.
