As a result she must wear a contact lens on that eye the rest of her life. The injury also increases the chance to 50 percent that she will get glaucoma in the eye. The retina could also become Dr. Dyer said. Carmen testified that because of the injury and the lens she has to she has to cope with considerable dis- comfort and some loss of vision. The point disputed by the Laurie MacLean for the plaintiff and Steve Denecky for the was whether or not Mr. Lowe was negligent in leaving the rifle Limousin bull brings price of A six-month-old Limousin bull calf has been sold for Riverbend Farm of 30 miles west of Red sold the calf to Rod Mclsaac of Clanranald Ont. The calf was sired by a bull in the Chastanet herd owned by McBride Limousin of High River. Riverbend also sold 50 crossbred Limousin females to the Ontario rancher. No purchase price was an- nounced. The bull calf will remain in Alberta until it has completed his rate of performance tests which end when it is one year old. It will then be stationed at an artificial insemination stud unit in Ont. where it was accessible to the children. Mr. MacLean argued that since the Lowe children had access to the gun and used it then Mr. Lowe was negligent. He further argued that the defendant had not told his children of the harm the air rifle could cause. Mr. Denecky claimed that Mr. Lowe was not negligent since he had given the children training in gun safety. He had also told them not to use the gun without his permission. Mr. Denecky sought to establish negligence on Mr. Digram's in that the who owned numeroud handguns and had allowed his children to fire weapons and had not given them proper training. Mr. Justice Milvain agreed with Mr. stating that the air rifle was a dangerous weapon and should have been treated as such. He said that although parents are not usually to be held respon- sible for the torts of their a person who leaves a firearm where it may be dangerous to anyone else is guilty of criminal negligence. In allowing his children relatively free access to the Mr. Lowe was Mr. Justice Milvain ruled. In awarding the general damages to the Ingram Mr. Justice Milvain mention- ed that he too had to wear con- tact lenses because his natural lenses were destroyed. He he the discomfort the girl had to contend with because of the contact lens in her eye.
