Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tueidoy, November 16, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAtO 19 Pilots slam govt. MONTREAL (CP) The Ca- nadian Airline Pilots Associa tion criticized the federal gov- ernment Monday for failing to take legal and security mea- sures to prevent .sky piracy like Friday's aborted hijacking of an Air Canada airliner. Capt. Charles H. Simpson, as- sociation president, praised the bravery of Capl. Verncm Ehrnan and the crew of the jetliner hi- jacked in Calgary. But he charged tlio federal government with failing to bring in legislation that would male hijacking a crime punishable by life imprisonment. Capt. Simpson said that in May, 1970, Justice Minister Turner had promised amend- ments to the Criminal Cede "at the earliest possible opportu- but the "simple amend- ment is not on the books more than I1: years later and thus cannot be invoked to deal with the present hijacking." The association "also asked at that time for a provision mak- ing it a specific crime to cam weapons or explosives on board aircraft." TREATY NOT RATIFIED C'apt. Simpson said that Can- ada has yet to ratify an interna- tional treaty on hijacking, "ap- parently because of the failure to enact tha criminal legisla- tion." "Since 1970, the Internationa' Civil Aviation Organization anc the United Nations have called upon all states to take effective measures to combat sky-pir- he said. "This game of passing the buck cannot go on while the lives of passengers and cresv members are at stake." Capt. Simpson also criticize; security measures al airports and terminals that permitted a man carry-ing a "veritable arse- nal" to board an ail-plane unno- ticed, indicating a total lack o effective security measures and "a callous disregard for safe- ty." In Friday's hijacking, a man armed with a sawed off shotgun and a quantity of dynamite threatened to blow up the air- craft if Ms instructions were not followed. Foreign ownership report only a draft 0'ITAWA (CP) A confiden- tial government document on foreign ownership published last week was dismissed by Acting Prime Minister Mitchell S'narp Monday as only "an early draft" of one o[ several studies prepared for the cab'uict by lic servants. The study appearing in the Canadian Forum magazine was not a statement of government policy, Mr. Sharp told the Com- mons. The document's idea for a federal agency to screen the activities of foreign-owned com- panies and investment in Can- ada was "only one of several proposed methods" for control. It was Prime Minister Trtt- doau's hope (hat policy deci- sions would be made soon, he said. Only then would there be a government decision on whether to publish the cabinet report prepared by Revenue Minister Herb Gray or the accompanying studies. Mr. Sharp defended govern- ment refusal to publish the The public had plenty of information on foreign owner- ship; necdc-d now was a govern- ment decision on the subject. Mr. Gray said the report in the magazine "was not the do- cument I submitted to but declined to say how much of the draft was changed. Both ministers said they had no idea how the journal got its hands on the draft report. An investigation is under way in Mr. Gray's department. WOULD CONTUSE PUBLIC Mr. Sharp, standing in for Prime Minister Trudeau who was attending the federal-pro- vincial conference here, said do- cuments prepared for cabinet by public servants are tradition- ally confidential, and besides, publication of further studies would only confuse the public. This had been the effect of the Forum article. Conservative House Leader Gerald Baldwin unsuccessfully sought a ruling from Speaker Lucien Lamoureux forcing the government lo publish the Gray report. He said the government either "deliberately allowed the con- tents of the document to be made or else "it was so negligent and so slovenly that it allowed the document to fall into the hands of the Cana- dian Forum." New Democratic Leader David Lewis also failed to con- vince Mr. Lamoureux that regu- lar House business should be set aside in favor of a special de- bate on the Gray report. Later, speaking in the Com- mons debate on tax reform, Mr. Lewis said failure to publish the report was a betrayal of duty. Past governments had kept Ca- nadians ignorant ol foreign takeover of the economy. Mr. Sharp replied "no" when asked by James McGrath (PC John's East) whether a committee would be assigned to decide whether there had been a "deliberate leak" of Uie docu- ment. Truckers face ruin CALGARY CCP) Legisla- tive proposals and union de- mands are pushing the truck- ing industry to the brink of bankruptcy, says the president of the Canadian Trucking As- sociation. Irvine Froese of Vancouver was speaking at the Alberta Motor Transport Association annual convention here. "Unless someone in govern- ment restores a measure of sanity to the unions' demands, the trucking industry will fall further and further behind in its ability to serve the public at reasonable rales. "A 9a-per-ccnt wage increase demand over 21 months in Eastern Canada cannot lie re- conciled with logic and not tol- erated as reasonable. "The final settlement? A package increase of over 36 months, a per-cenl in- crease." On legislation, former Alber- ta highways minister Gordon Taylor said the industry should strive to bo allowed to remain I'freo from pnvernment control as far as possible.
