Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE IETHBR1DGE HERALD Tuesday, November 21, 1972 Second person in four days sentenced to die ST. JEROME, Quo. (CP) Real Chartrancl was sentenced Monday to be hanged April 28, 1973, for the jrurdcr of a police constable. Mr. Justice Guy Mathieu of Quebec Superior Court pro- nounced the sentence a half hour after n 12 man jury deliv- ered a guilty verdict on a capi- tal-murder charge. The jury de- liberated six hours. Chartranri was accused of shooting Constable Gabriel La- belle of the Ste. Therese police in October, 1971 while the offi- cer was investigating a rob- The jury recommended cle- mency, but when Mr Justice Mathieu asked Chartrand if lie had anything to say after sen- tencing, he replied in a low, clear voice: "I refuse cle- mency." The recommendation will be Included in Justice Mathicirs report on the sentence to Jus- tice Minister Jerome Choquette. WILL APPEAL Chartrand's lawyer, Michel Proulx, said he would cany an appeal "all the way." As the court emptied, French radio commentator Evelyn Lelecheur, who had played a role in arranging Chartrand's surrender to police last year, attempted to talk with Chart- rand but she was led away by guards. It was the second death sen- tence passed in Canada in four days, .ieorge McNamara o f Orillia, Ont., was sentenced in Prince George. B.C. Friday to be hanged in February for the murder of a prison guard. The death penalty was abol- ished in Canada for a five-year trial period in 1967 except for the murder of policemen and prison guards. Mr. Proulx said In his sum- mation there was "crushing proof" his 28-year-old client was the author of the policeman's death, hut asked the jury to re- turn a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity. WAS IN INSTITUTION Chartrand was released from the Philippe Pinel Institute for the criminally insane in the summer of 1971 after two years of treatment. He was read- mitted following his arest in October of the same year. French-only bid By VICTOR MACfflE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The "French- only" resolution adopted by the Quebec Liberal party is a con- travention of the bill of rights and a blow to b'lingimlism, Barry Mather, member of par- liament for Surrey-White Rock, said Monday in a telegram to Premier Eobert Bourassa. The NDP member was in- dignant over the position en- dorsed by the Quebec Liberal convention. He noted that it recom- mended that in future new im- migrants from non-English speaking countries, settling in Quebec, be compelled to have their children educated in French. This is the first time in the history of the Quebec Liberal party that it passed a resolution limiting freedom of choice in the language of instruction in Quebec province. Premier Bou- rassa after the convention over- whelmingly approved the reso- lution Saturday promised his Liberal government would take it into consideration with other factors when drafting any lan- guage legislation. However lie made it clear that he did not consider himself bound by the resolution. A re- port of a Quebec commission of inquiry on the status of the French language is due by the end of the year. No decision affecting language education will be taken before that report is received in Quebec. Mr. Mather in Us telegram said: "Reported French-only resolution of Literal convention would, if adopted by your gov- ernment, violate the Bill of Rights aid impair privileges of new Canadians. "It would be a victory for isolationism and a blow to bi- lingualism. It would further re- duce the opportunities of Que- bec and its residents. I urge that you oppose enactment of such proposed retrograde A TOAST FOR THE QUEEN Queen Elizabeth is toasted at a luncheon in honor of her- end Prince Philip on ihe occasion of the Royal Couple's silver wedding anniver-. sary in London Monday.

NDP seeking limit on election spending OTTAWA (CP) With the most expensive election only recently behind them and an- other costly one not far away, MPs early next year will be consider legislation to limit such spend- ing. The New Democratic Party, holding the balance of power in the Commons that opens Jan. 4, already has made clear it will seek such legislation. Stanley Kjiowles, NDP House leader, Monday said the party will seek improvements in gov- ernment legislation that died with the last Parliament after strong opposition criticism. The minority Liberal govern- ment isn't giving away any se- crets about legislation to be out- lined at the opening of the 29th Parliament. But informed sources say it is quite conceiv- able Prime Minister Trudeau may seek to limit election ex- penses before the next election. But he will be facing a radi- cally-altered Parliament. In- stead of an overwhelming ma- jority, he will have 109 govern- ment MPs compared with 107 Conservatives, 31 NDP mem- bers, 15 Social Credit members and two independents in the 264- seat Commons. Mr. Trudeau may decide it would be good politics to help candidates cope with ever-rising costs of getting elected. Relief is needed, according to the estimates of Khayyam Zev Paltiel, a Carlelon University political science professor who has been studying election ex- penses for years. In an interview. Prof. Paltiel said the last election may have cost politicians and their parties between S26 million and mil- lion. On top of that, Chief Elec- toral Officer Jean-Marc Hamel estimates it cost about mil- on for a humane trap TOnOMO (CP) Scientists and organizations concerned with the humane trapping of an- imals are searching for the per- fect Irap that will save animals pain. Two Ontario university pro- fessors iiov, are engaged in re- search which will show how fast an animal Lrap snaps and how animals approach, the trap and how it hits them. Prof. Roy Newcombe of McMastcr University in Hsrn- iiton is using a high-speed movie camera to find out the speed of traps, while at the Unt versify of Guelph, Dr. Robert Walker, a zoologist, is doing work using a slower movie camera. These scientists, with the help Sure Grip IV -------------------------TER TIRES 95 ECONOMY WINTER TIRES each F7B-14 BLACKWAIL tow PRICE: ON OTHER SIZES, TOOI DEPENDABLE VALUE FOR TOUGH WINTER DRIVING!

The work of the scientists is organized and financed in Can- ada by the Canadian Associ- ation for Humane Trapping but most of the work at the two universities is spon- sored by the universities. Aim of the research is to re- place the old leg-hold trap in which the animal's leg Is caught by two bands of spring- driven steel, usually when the animal steps on a trigger. The trap usually holds the an- imal by its lacerated leg until the trapper comes to kill it and take the pelt, or until the ani- mal rips or chews the paw off and escapes. CAHT hopes to make a trap that will either hold the animal without harm until the trapper comes or will kill it instantly. The traps tested at McMasler and Guelph so far have all been variations on the snapping steel of the leg-hold trap. At a recent international con- ference on humane trapping or- sanized in Toronto by CAHT, Prof. Newcombe demonstrated the testing of a trap sold under the name Instant Kille? and in- vented by a trapper in Sturgeon Falls, Ont. lion to organize the vote. This makes a total of between million and million. This compares to a Paltiel es- timate of million for politi- cians and million for gov- ernment in 1MB and a Com- mons commiltee estimate of million for candidates and million for organization in J965. Nobody knows when the next election will be, but the Con- servatives have made clear they will let no opportunity pass to defeat the government. NDP Leader David Lewis has not been as tough, although he says his party will not be in- timidated into keeping the Lib- erals in power. It also has been widely specu- lated that the NDP would be in a difficult financial position if any early election were called. An election expenses act, un- der which the government would underwrite some costs and limit others, obviously would help. But Mr. Knowles said in an interview that last year's bill would not be enough. He said the NDP war..ts to correct defi- ciencies in the legislation, such as lack of requirements for full disclosure of political donations and failure to set a limit on party expenses The opposition found other things to criticize In the bill, al- though it conceded it was i step in the right direction albeit hastily drawn up. BILL FOR RICH Prof. Paltiel, who wrote a re- port on election expenses in 1970, described the legislation as a weak, rich man's bill. He said it is true the legisla- tion provided for some govern- ment repayment of expenses. But this had little meaning to the poor candidate because there was no realistic limit on over-all expenses. He said a candidate could re- coup about 30 per cent of his expenses under the bill. Under Quebec law, a candidate could be repaid as much as 60 per cent of costs. The professor said it Is too early to determine how much parties and politicians spent on the Oct. 30 election, although he intends to bring his 1970 report up to date. But from what he has seen, the cost to all con- cerned would be more than million. He said it is reported that the United States election cost million. With Canada having about 10 per cent of the population of the U.S., the election expenses of the two countries would appear to be about the same.
