Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, October 4, THE LETHBRIPQE HERALD 31 Abortion laws rapped OTTAWA (CP) Lawyers for Dr. Henry Morgentaler ar- gued Thursday that abortion laws are improperly in the Criminal Code because they do not protect the public "from any evil." Charles Flam, one of two lawyers acting for Dr. Morgentaler in his appeal against performing an illegal abortion, said the only con- stitutional reason for criminal legislation is to protect the public. The evils that Parliament feared in passing the 1969 laws, such as deaths arising from abortions, do not exist in present-day Canada, Mr. Flam told the Supreme Court of Canada. Mr. Flam and Claude Shep- pard took up the full court hearing Thursday arguing that the Montreal doctor should never have been convicted of performing an illegal abortion not only on constitutional grounds but also because the Canadian Bill of Rights ex- tended the right for women to decide whether they wanted to have abortions. The two lawyers were peppered with questions from the nine high court judges as they argued their case. Chief Justice Bora Laskin, whose interventions made it plain the court was interested only in the legal issues in- volved, told Mr. Flam that to attack the abortion laws, he must do more than question the wisdom of them. MAGAZINE THREATENS TO QUIT OTTAWA (CP) The federal government has been told that Time magazine will cease publi- cation of its Canadian edi- tion if special tax advan- tages for advertisers are withdrawn. The warning came from Stephen S. LaRue of Toron- to, president of Time Canada Ltd., in a brief to State Secretary Hugh Faulkner. Mr. LaRue said the com- pany will be forced by severe reductions in adver- tising revenue to end Cana- dian operations if the government acts on proposals to end the special tax status. He said the effects would be felt .throughout the publishing and related in- dustries in Canada and would result in dismissal of Time Canada staff members earning million this year, loss of million in advertising agency commissions and the drying up of mil- lion in contracts to the magazine's printers and suppliers. In addition, Mr. LaRue said the government would lose million in tax revenues and about another million to engravers, mailing houses, the Post Office and Cana- dian media doing promotional services for Time. Alderman told to see lawyer EDMONTON (CP) A city alderman Thursday was told he should consult a lawyer before resuming his testimony before the judicial inquiry into the city's civic affairs. Mr. Justice William Morrow of the Northwest Territories Supreme Court, made the suggestion to Aid. Ken Newman, adding that some of his testimony should perhaps come under the protection of the Canada and Alberta evidence acts. Aid. Newman had been testifying about his role in arranging a number of real es- tate transactions and appeared without counsel. G. R. Forsythe, counsel for the inquiry, asked Aid. Newman if he was licenced as a real estate agent while handling the transactions. "No sir, I was not and New missiles test fired WASHINGTON (AP) Soviet Union has test-fired two new long-range, sub- marine-launched missiles about miles from the far north Barents Sea into the Pacific, the Pentagon an- nounced Thursday. They outranged the longest- reaching U.S. missile fired from submarines by about 000 miles. maybe I should have had some counsel on Aid. Newman replied. He said arranging real es- tate transactions was not his business but that he did so on four occasions. "I didn't realize I needed a licence for that." Aid. Newman was schedul- ed to return to testify today. The inquiry also heard two other aldermen testify about their relationships with developers and the potential conflict of interest they faced. Aid. Terry Cavanagh told the inquiry he personally had not found conflict of interest a difficult matter but that the subject appeared to have become controversial in the eyes of council during the last year or so. "It may have something to do with he said. Aid. Alex Fallow testified he could not recall hearing the names of developers Eskander and Raphael Ghermezian mentioned during a city council meeting last Jan. 14. The meeting was held two days after the date on which Aid. Fallow, in earlier testimony, said he was offered a gift by Raphael Ghermezian. The Ghermezians have testified that Aid. Fallow demanded money from them but was refused. The inquiry, headed by Mr. Justice Morrow, was called after Aid. Fallow said he had received the gift offer.
