Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 LETHBRIDGE HERALD WtdnMday, October 24, 1973 Warm Winter Values For the en of Action No fork needed Bob Andrews, T2, may have broken both arms in a fall from a bicycle, but that doesn't stop him from enjoy- ing a hefty chunk of luscious, gooey pizza. Food service personnel in the Port Huron, Mich., School District's cafeteria system have discontinued providing forks on pizza days, pointing to students like Bob "who don't use them anyway." JUDGE CALLS COURTHOUSE A DISGRACE" EDMONTON (CP) A provincial judge says that Ed- monton's provincial judge's court is "a mess, a disgrace and most inadequate Judge John C Coughlan made the comments at the opening of a week-long board hearing on the administration of justice in Alberta's lower courts. He urged the three-member board, headed by Mr. Justice W J. C. Kirby of the Alberta Supreme Court and including Dr. Max Wyman. University of Alberta President and Ted Bower, editor of the Red Deer Advocate, to tour the municipal courthouse "to see what we are required to put up with Judge Coughlan said docket court, where accused make their first appearances and trial dates are set, is usually filled to capacity and the lawyers' bench in front of the courtroom is overflowing, forcing lawyers to "lounge against the walls in a most un- dignified manner." "The noise is he added. LISTS COMPLAINTS There was an overabun- dance of police on all floors of the courthouse because they occupy many sections of the building Judge Coughlan said provincially-appointed peace officers should take the place of policemen who act as court orderlies. "Police should be in court only as witnesses." Because of lack of courtrooms many trials are scheduled for parh nnc and often cases must be adjourned and all the witnesses sent home. Probation officers have no place to work and must function in public corridors, he said. During adjournments there is nowhere for a judge to go except back to his office, and he must walk through crowds of people including the ac- cused, police, spectators and prosecutors. "There are no retiring rooms where I can talk to counsel if I have to Judge Coughlan said a train- ing period should be establish- ed for newly-appointed judges during which they could sit in pn cases and talk to the presiding judge afterwarc'i. Judges should visit every penal institution within their jurisdiction once a year to know where the people they sentence are going, he said. Judge Coughlan suggested that the age of majority for males should be raised to 18 from 16 to avoid situations in which a 16-year-old charged with an offence such as traf- ficking is sent to prison for six or seven years. He also recommended that the driving age be raised to 18 from 17 This would eliminate many driving-related offences committed by 17-year-olds. He said jail sentences im- posed in default of payment of fines on provincial summary offences should be abolished. GIVES SUPPORT Robert Powelson, an Edson lawyer, told the board that un- EDMONTON (CP) Air Canada will introduce a DC-8 flight betxveen Edmonton and Regina this winter and likely add another L-1011 between Edmonton and eastern Canada next year, Yves Pratte, chairman of Air Canada and the airline's chief executive officer, said here. The DC-8 flight between the city and Regina would be in addition to the DC-9 flight schedule now in operation. "I can't say definitely yet, but there will probably be another L-1011 in service between here and eastern Canada." He also reported during a major policy speech that Air Canada is planning to in- troduce Boeing 747 flights on the airline's western Arrow overseas schedule from Ed- monton and other western cities. Win support EDMONTON (CP) City 'Council has voted to give moral support to Guelph, Ont., in its campaign to keep foreign reptiles out of Canada. The Ontario city has asked the federal government to introduce legislation that would restrict the "importa- tion and breeding of reptiles, not common to Canada, ex- cept for research, zoo and cir- cus purposes." The Guelph campaign began when a python escaped from an apartment in which it was being kept. The snake was recaptured a few days later. trained, ill-prepared and non- professional lay judges have been responsible for injustices in Alberta's lower courts. "The difference between appearing before a lay judge and a trained judge is as big as the difference between day and night." he said. Some judges with RCMP or police backgrounds tend to be unconsciously prejudiced in favor of police witnesses and have the attitude that the ac- cused must be guilty because he was arrested. Mr Powelson said all lay judges should be immediately replaced. "I understand it is a policy matter that there be no more such appointments but this does not alleviate the problem of the men who are still sit- ting." Judge Coughlan agreed that judges should have legal training "I think it is ab- solutely essential it is in- conceivable to me that we can justify the appointment of a non-legally trained judge."
