Dave Ward told a judicial in- quiry Tuesday that he only recently became aware of contributions to his 1971 provincial campaign by city developer Harvey White. Mr. White told the civic af- fairs inquiry earlier in the day that he played a prominent' part in Mr. Ward's attempt to secure the Progressive Conservative nomination for Edmonton Centre. Mr White said Aid. Ward received more than in campaign donations from the developers of the Whitehall Square apartment project that had received city council STILL SELLING FOR LESS STERN'S CUT-RATE FURNITURE Phone 327-3024 314 3rd St. S. approval. The donation to Aid. Ward's nomination attempt was paid by W. Keterenchuk, then vice president for the general contracting firm which was negotiating for the Whitehall Square project. Mr. Keterenchuk testified that he paid the to Aid. Ward's campaign on the under- standing that the money was an advance to Mr. White. Aid. Ward said it was only two weeks ago that he became aware of the contribu- tion to his campaign. The alderman said that although he voted in favor of the Whitehall project he was not influenced by his association with Mr. White. Aid. Ward said Me. White had told him he was impress- ed by the way the alderman conducted himself in city council and volunteered to help any of Aid. Ward's campaigns. Commission counsel G. R. Forsyth read the minutes of a May 18, 1971, city council meeting at which rumors of conflict of interest regarding the Whitehall Square project were dis- cussed But the rumors concerned Mayor Ivor Dent and two aldermen, and, said Aid. Ward, "there was no discus- sion at the time about my relationship with Mr. White." He said that if he had known of Mr. White's donations at the time of the 1971 council voting on Whitehall, he would have checked with the city solicitor. Mr White also testified that one of his companies, Dob- binton Investments Ltd., donated about to Aid. Ward's 1971 aldermanic cam- paign. But Mr. White said he did not believe Aid. Ward was aware of the size of his com- pany's contributions and there were no specific discussions with Aid. Ward about where the campaign funds were ob- tained. Mr. Justice William Morrow, presiding judge, ask- ed Mr. White how much he or his company made from the Whitehall development. "About replied Mr. White. Mr. Justice Morrow asked the purpose of the contributions. "The purpose of making the contributions was that Dave Ward was a friend of mine and a very competent said Mr. White Gun banned by justice department OTTAWA (CP) A semi- automatic rifle that resembles a machine-gun has been placed on the federal restricted weapons list, the justice department announced Tuesday. The .45-calibre rifle, which apparently looks like the Thompson sub-machine-gun favored by 1920s gangsters, recently went on sale in Van- couver under the name, Com- mando Mark III. As of Nov. 1, sale of the gun will be prohibited without a permit from a provincial at- torney-general or the RCAlP. Edmonton transit policy outlined EDMONTON (CP) Mayor Ivor Dent Tuesday an- nounced a comprehensive transportation policy for Ed- monton, including plans to ex- tend rapid transit spurs to all parts of the city within the next decade. In addition, the city will buy 75 new buses in 1975 to supple- ment a fleet of 68 already on order, said the mayor. He also pledged to press ahead with plans for a new bridge at 105th Street and said a new airport terminal would be completed next year. The first phase of a rapid transit system, currently un- der construction, will link the downtown core with northeast Edmonton Mr. Dent said the first leg of the city's rapid transit system would be obtained at little cost to the Edmonton taxpayer. Of the projected million cost, million had been guaranteed by the provincial government and the city had an opportunity to collect another million from the federal government. He said this compared with a cost to the city of million for a freeway system or million for an express bus system.
