Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Dateline Alberta Request turned down EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government has turn- ed down a request by a local independent investigation organization for a grant to help finance the organization's work. Chris Harder, chairman of the group known as Action Committee, Tuesday released a letter from Provincial Treasurer Gordon Miniely that gave notice of the rejec- tion. Mr. Harder had asked for to cover action com- mittee's expenses in investigating the Alberta Housing Corporation. An ad- ditional was requested to help the group continue its work. Grant Notley, provincial New Democratic Party leader, said the government's suggestion that Mr. Harder had little to do with calling the inquiry was an inept attempt by the government to save political face.

Webster Macdonald told court: "I think the strongest thing that can be said is that this young man was entrapped by the police." He said his client was entic- ed into selling the substance to RCMP undercover agent Con- stable Terry Towns last February. Mr. Macdonald made the charge when Paterson, found guilty of the charge Oct. 4, appeared in court for senten- cing. UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD.

"There isn't a need in Alberta at the present time for cutting back speed he said in a telephone interview from Edmonton. The minister said the issue has been thoroughly examined both-in Edmonton and with other provincial highways ministers at a road safety meeting in Winnipeg during the weekend. The question was stirred up two weeks ago by a British Columbia government deci- sion to reduce speed limits on major highways. "The case for lowering speed limits across Canada "Their conclusion was that the drop in speed limits to conserve fuel led to a big drop in the number of accidents but the provincial ministers didn't entirely agree with this." He said the ministers, on the other hand, "unanimously agreed that it was vital for drivers to be wearing seat belts." "We are more concerned at present with the wide variance in seat belt design and we shall ask the Canadian btandards Association to press for greater comfort and convenience in seat belt designs."
