Telephone 328-9231 Annexation major issue in election CALGARY (CP) Shaping up as a major campaign issue in the Oct. 16 civic election is the controversial proposal for Calgary to annex 125 square miles of land, nearly doubling the city's physical size. The annexation issue, complicated by the provincial government's opposition, is to be the subject of a plebiscite to be held during the election, enteredliy five mayoralty, 43 aldermanic and 44 school board When 92 people are 27 openings the office of mayor, 12 city council "a'nd 14 school, board seat's political crossfire is inevitable. Don Hartman, an alderman seeking rft-- election, charged that Mayor Rod Sykes shut ing re-election, charged that Mayor Rod Sykes shut him up by discussing his political activities with CP Rail, his employer. However, Ed Shute, the company's Alberta region general manager, said Mr. Hartman misinterpreted the meeting he had with Mr. Sykes, who was vice president of Marathon Realty, a Canadian Pacific subsidiary, before becoming mayor. In another incident, Jerry Kwan, a Chinese Canadian running for alderman, charged that his campaign posters were torn down and one of his workers attacked. He said he didn't know who was behind it but "maybe it's my color Dramatic disclosure But what made politicians jump the gun was the dramatic disclosure and subsequent confirmation last week 01 the existence of a secret city hall report dealing with ownership of the land to be annexed. Denis Cole, the city's chief commissioner, confirmed news reports that a study was made dealing with the cor- porate structure of land developers operating in and around Calgary but refused to discuss its contents. The Calgary Herald, which broke the story, said the report shows evidence that a near monopoly could be in control of the majority of the land to be annexed. Mr. Sykes, seeking his third term of office, said he read the report earlier this year but decided it should be kept secret. This drew angry reaction from aldermen, most of whom did not know of it when they approved the city ad- ministration's recommendation for annexation. Mr. Sykes subsequently suggested that the report should be the basis of a federal combines investigation and called for a special council meeting this week to discuss it. The mayor, however, did not explain why such action was not taken before the election campaign. Aid. Ross Alger, a mayoralty candidate, asked the provincial government to intervene and take the annexation question off the ballot. He said it would to ask the citizens to vote on annexation until all the facts have been released." Also in the race for the city's top political job are Aid. Peter Petrasuk, former alderman Ed Dooley, and a political unknown John Mason, who listed his occupation as a plumber's helper on the nomination papers. Mr. Petrasuk is the only major mayoralty candidate opposing annexation. Growing too fast Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell said Calgary is already growing too rapidly and the.proVincial government, committed to seeing growth opportunities equalized throughout Alberta, would like to examine the alternatives to annexation. Mr. Russell said the cabinet has not ruled out the possibility of directly intervening to block Calgary's annex- ation. However, the provincial government will withhold its decision until the citizens of Calgary have had a chance to say yes or no in the plebiscite. Talk to people who support annexation led by land developers and the city administration and you hear that Calgary needs land. Calgarians prefer detached single family units. There can be more parks and open space. Increased land availability will ease the rising cost of housing. On the other hand, annexation is described as ignoring the lessons of urban development: pollution, crime, traffic congestion, high cost of living, the rat race and other problems associated with "bigness." There will be at least five new faces on the city council formed Oct. 16, as aldermen Alger and Petrasuk are running for mayor. Eric Musgreave is switching to provincial politics, Adrian Berry is retiring from, politics, and Ward 5 alderman John Kushner has decided to run in Ward 2 against the two incumbents. Hartman and Bob Simpson. The other aldermen seeking re election are John Ayer. Barbara Scott, Ed Oman, Gordon Shrake and Tom Priddle. Calgary elects its aldermen through the ward system, with six wards electing two each. As Kushner. Hartman and Simpson are running in the same ward, at least one of them will not return to council. Gander son in race AH five serving members on the public school board are seeking re election, joined by 28 newcomers. Two members resigned since the last election, and seeking to return are chairman Haralti Gunderson who is also president of the Alberta School Trustees Association. John Curran. Catherine Martini, Alex Proudfoot and Scott Saville. Contesting for the seven seats on the separate school board are 11 candidates, including five seeking re election chairman Mary Green, Elaine Brooks. John Currie. Hugh Gaudet and Gerry Tersmette. One member resigned since the last election and one is not seeking re election. There are other campaign issues, including leadership, campaign financing, pollution, transportation, housing, crime and school trustee pay. but they are overshadowed by the annexation controversy. Leadership is another major issue in the mayoralty con- test While other candidates pledged better relationship with the city administration and council if elected. Mayor Sykes said disagreements are a good sign of open government. "When you put your children in a room and they sudden- ly become quiet, that's when you know something is the mayor said.
