'Speed9 possession to become illegal federal health departaKat Is neon- matlna ttae pones- sion of illegal ia to allow the police to control better the drag abuse problem in a number of Canada's largest does. Federal sources said this week that a major reason against making possession is the widespread medical use of amphetamines and has in effect disappeared with this year's N percent reduction in medical amphetamine use in Canada. The dramatic drop in am- phetamine use follows strict federal controls on the pre- scriMaf of no- tably the elimination of svch major uses as the treatment of obesity and depression with concern was that mak- ing possession illegal could fnconvjsnieBce a number of found to be in possession of amphetamines which were intended in fact for medical use and issued on a valid prescription. Law enforcement officials across Canada have been call- ing for making possession of to allow police to crack down on users. At trafficking and distributing is illegal in Canada. Simple possession is not. covers amphe- tamine and metham- phetamlne drugs manu- factured in illegal la- boratories. Very little amphetamine produced legal- ly for medical use is diverted to illegal especially following the strict federal controls on medical uses of amphetamines. Federal sources say that the recent 90 per cent drop in medical use of amphetamines means that problems of interfering with the civil rights of Canadians actually using amphatamines legally would be minimised should possession become il- is part of a package of problem DOW being considered suggestion that suggested federal moves to by the health sion become in fact illegal la combat the abuse The Easy Choice. Crowsnest Pass area new landfill EDMONTON The Alberta government is looking at the possibility of es- tablishing regional sanitary landfill sites and of owning and operating such sites in the Environment Minister Bill Yurko said Wednesday. The during a panel discussion at the convention of the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Coun- said his department is making plans for a regional sanitary landfill site in the Crowsnest Pass of southwestern Alberta. This site and one establish- ed recently in the Leduc area could be the forerunners of a program to regionalize sanitary landfill sites throughout the Mr. Yurko said. Each such site would be used by several com- munities. The minister said that sanitary landfill sites in the past have been eyesores which polluted air and water. The rising cost of land was another problem. Murderers among pals of senator OTTAWA Senatoi Hastings who counts 30 convicted murderers among his called yesterday for abolition of all capital punishment. He made the plea as the Senate resumed consideration of the government's controversial bill to ban capital except for killer.s of on-duty policemen and prison guards. The bill would renew a five- year partial ban which ex- pired last December. Senator Hastings is honorary president of a club at the federal penitentiary in Alta Active members all are convicted murderers. He has taken some of the members out of the prison on temporary leaves and has tried to aid them in self-help sessions. He told of several cases where men whose sentences were commuted had become valuable citizens. He believed that every no matter how had something valuable within him and can place no man beyond the hope of that Killer Latta disbarred in Alberta EDMONTON The executive of the Alberta Bar Association has announced that convicted murderer Keith Latta has been dis- barred from the association. a former law professor at Queen's Universi- ty in was con- victed of the murder of city travel agent Bob Neville. Latta is serving a life sentence. Driver killed at Aldersyde ALDERSYDE Brian Thomas Munry of Calgary was killed Wednesdsay when the vehicle he was driving was in collision with a truck on Highway 2. Aldersyde Is 25 miles south of Calgary. Police said the truck had stalled in the driving and its driver was away seeking help at the time of the ac- cident. A passenger in the truck received minor injuries. Because of the provin- cial government is consider- ing owning and operating the sanitary landfill sites in Alberta Delegates at the convention approved a resolution if accepted by the provincial would result in the owners of acreages adja- cent to large cities paying more taxes. Many owners of acreages or those who hold 20 acres or more make it a point to earn a year from the sale of produce or livestock to qualify as farmers and pay lower tax- es. This results in a loss of potential tax revenue for municipal districts and coun- ties. Under present assessment the improvement assessment which usually covers the home is written off if the owner can show that a livelihood can be obtained from his property. The association wants the provincial government to put an end to what it considers inequitable assessment prac- tices.
