Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta October 24, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Reimer funeral today EDMONTON (CP) Funeral services will be held today for Jacob (Jake) Reimer, 72, of Edmonton, who was long involved in the oilfield hauling aspect of the trucking business. An officer and operator of James and Reimer Ltd., which at one time was the ma- jor oilfield hauling firm in Alberta, Mr. Reimer died Monday after a lengthy bout with cancer. He was a native of Did- sbury, Alta., and became in- volved in oilfield hauling at Turner Valley, in the early 1930s. He moved to Calgary in 1942 and later, when the Leduc oilfield opened up, to Edmon- ton Living wage sought EDMONTON (CP) The Canadian Association of Prac- tical and Nursing Assistants (CAPNA) said today it wants people training for such positions to be paid a living wage. A decision to apply for a federal charter was made in a resolution as the organization ended a two-day convention. Bernice Gehring, president of the British Columbia, Prac- tical Nursing Association, said the organization will try to change existing legislation in various provinces to promote payment to those who train as practical nurses or nursing aides. Court ruling asked EDMONTON (CP) The Supreme Court of Alberta has been asked to rule whether the city's court of revision can deal with a dispute involving distribution of taxes between the separate and public school boards. The court of revision was adjourned today to Nov. 7 and 8 to wait a ruling after Mr. Justice D. C. MacDonald hears the case in supreme court Oct. 28. The adjournment and referral came after Jim Red- mond, counsel for the separate board, served the city, the court of revision and the public school board with a writ of prohibition challenging the right of the court to make a decision. Timber dues cut urged EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta forestry industry has asked the provincial govern- ment to reduce its timber dues until the industry can im- prove its financial footing. Dick Corser, president of the Alberta Forest Products Association, said a reduction in timber dues could mean the difference between working and closing down. Timber dues are paid to government by industry for the privileges of cutting the province's trees. "A joint industry and government group has decid- ed timber dues should equal ten per cent of the value of the finished Mr. Corser said. "But the economy is so slow now that cutbacks in the order of 35 to 50 per cent might result if some relief is not given from the timber dues. UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD.

Police have turned Sammy over to the Children's Aid Society. FORT McMURRAY (CP) The town board wants the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association to ask the provin- cial government to review conflict of interest legislation affecting elected officials. The board, at a meeting Wednesday, decided to seek the association's approval at its annual meeting next week in Edmonton to sup- port a resolution calling on the province to redefine the phrase "indirect pecuniary interest" in current legislation. The resolution also asks for an amendment that would ex- clude from conflict of interest legislation those voting on a mortgage on their primary residence or on matters in- volving their employers. Chuck Knight, board chair- man, said "all provinces have been having trouble with conflict of interest legislation, Aid pledged OTTAWA (CP) The government will provide up to million to Bangladesh to provide crop seeds to farmers in flood-stricken areas, Exter- nal Affairs Minister Allan MacEachen announced yesterday. particularly Saskatchewan." Mr. Knight was convicted of conflict of interest three weeks ago for voting on a matter involving a real estate firm. The firm was a sub- sidiary of Great Canadian Oil Sands Ltd., the firm for which he works. He said an amendment proposed in Saskatchewan would exclude all officials in town and villages and "I suggest Alberta should look at the same idea." Jean Davison, a board member, said it was going too far to eliminate towns and "I think it would be a dangerous move to eliminate all conflict of interest provisions." Norm Crawford, town manager, said it was the definition that had caused "literally a rash of conflict of interest cases" recently "The problem anses from the narrow technical judgments that have been made lately in Alberta courts." The motion was approved British immigrants to Canada in majority OTTAWA (CP) Former citizens of the United Kingdom again far out- numbered emigrants from other countries last in adopting Canadian citi- zenship, figures released Tuesday by Statistics Canada show. Of the naturalized during last year, 25.8 per cent were former U.K. citizens. Italy was second with 12.7 per cent. The U.S. ranked sixth with 3.2 per cent and China seventh with 3.1 per cent. In 1972, when were naturalized, three per cent came from the U.S. and 3.4 per cent from China. The U.K. proportion of 25.8 per cent in 1973 was up from 23 per cent in 1972 while the 12.7 per cent from Italy was down from 14.3 per cent in 1972.
