Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thundw, Oelebv i, W4 THE LETHBRIDOE HERM.D i Dateline Alberta Time removal sought Alberta travel Judge sidesteps industry suffers CgA walkoul labor shortages EDMONTpN (CP) Aid. Ed Leger said Wednesday the Alberta attorney general limited a judicial inquiry to investigating only the current city council, and he will seek city council's permission to ask that the time restriction be removed. Aid. Leger said he learned from Greg Forsyth, commis- sion council for the inquiry into Edmonton's civic affairs, that Attorney General Merv Leitch set October, 1971, as the outside limit for the investigation. Aid. Leger has written Mr. Leitch asking that the time limitation be removed. Road victim identified EDMONTON (CP) RCMP have identified Ricky Backwell, 22, of Bonnyville as the man who died in an Ed- monton hospital several hours after being injured in a traffic accident near Bonnyville. Others involved in the two- car collision escaped with minor injuries. Bonnyville is about 150 miles northeast of Edmonton. Farm accident fatal DELIA (CP) Barry Nill, 11, died in a farm accident in the Delia district, 100 miles northeast of Calgary. Barry Nill, son of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Nill, was dead on arrival at'the Hanna hospital, 35 miles from his home, after getting his arm caught in a grain-loading auger on a pull- type combine. Lawyer files defence EDMONTON (CP) Alberta desperately needs 10 per cent more accomodation and food service workers, says a survey released Wednesday at a Travel Industry Association of Alberta (TIALTA) conference. The survey, prepared by Underwood McLellan and Associates Ltd., polled 60 motels, motor hotels and hotels in Edmonton, Calgary, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Red Deer and Grande Prairie. It showed that bartenders, cooks, chambermaids and maintenance personnel were the categories with the worst shortfall. Managers surveyed said that low wages, the availability of social assistance, (employee attitudes and low job status were main reasons for the shortages. The report called for the establishment of an industrial stan- dards group to set industry wide standards for job positions. Dr. E. A. Mansfield, assistant deputy labor and manpower minister, told the meeting that, in well controlled situations, immigration could possibly be used to cover shortages in the service industry. But he said the government's desire was to hire Albertans first, Canadians second and overseas employees as a last resort. Dr. Mansfield said the government would soon appoint a director of manpower and mobility, a division designed to attract labor from other markets. Bud Armstrong, president of TIALTA, agreed that labor shor- tages were a prime concern of the travel and tourist industry. Although Travel Alberta was doing a good job of stretching out the tourist season in the national parks, "there is some concern in the industry that Travel Alberta is advertising too much when we can't handlw any more people." Mr. Armstrong also said a government decision on the future of the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains was needed almost immediately. EDMONTON (CP) Mr. Justice William Morrow sidestepped a walkout by civil servants Wednesday to re open a judicial inquiry into civic affairs. He moved the in- quiry from the law courts building to city hall and hired court reporters involved in the walkout on a private basis to record testimony during the 30th day of the inquiry. Mr. Justice Morrow said he did not want to get involved in the politics of the civil ser- vants' dispute with the provin- cial government but wished to conclude the inquiry as quick- ly as possible while lawyers and witnesses were available. "The show must he said. The judge said the alter- natives to using provincial court reporters were to bring in reporters from Toronto at a cost of a day plus ex- penses or to bring his own court reporter down from Yellowknife. He said he decid- ed to hire court reporters affected by the Civil Servants Association (CSA) of Alberta walkout to save the city some money. Mr. Justice Morrow said the CSA has agreed to allow the inquiry to return to the law courts building Thursday after being told that the inquiry is separate from the provincial government. EXPANDS EVIDENCE During testimony Wednes- day George Hughes, the city's chief commissioner, expanded on evidence he gave Monday about what he described as pressure from a city developer regarding a development in northeast Ed- monton. Mr. Hughes testified Monday that the developer, Eskander Ghermezian, had sought faster city handling of the development application and had indicated that the city would have problems getting access roads and rights of way near a water treatment plant if fast action on the application was not forthcoming. Mr. Hughes said Wednesday he was not overly concerned about the pressure from Mr. Ghermezian because it turned out that the city was able to arrange for access roads at the site of the plant without in- volving the Ghermezians in any way.
