Thurm, legal adviser to the department, said he hopes lfto have a case very shortly" that can be taken to the Federal Court of Canada, Leave to appeal must first be ohtained from t lie court, then the appeal iliclf must he heard. That process could result in a decision, "hopefully a favorable one, within t wo or three months, Mr. Thurm said. The move follows a on visitors who come to Canada with the intention of applying for lauded immigrant status once they are here. Immigration officers may require visitors to post a bond my go usually about SIM, that would x returned when the visitor goes home. If a visitor successfully applies for immigrant status the bond may or may not be returned.

The bonds are or.e method immigration officers have of checking whether or not a tourist is a visitor or a potential immigrant. Officers have the right to request a bond, but cannot deport people who refuse to put them up. In all cases, the onus is on the visitor to satisfy the immigration officer that he is only visiting. If a visitor refuses to post a hond, it may raise doubts in an officer's mind, eomin on financing EDMONTON (CP) The city cf Edmonton has taken a strong critical stand against the interim report of the Farran Commission on provincial municipal financing. In a brief to be submitted to the government, the city says the commission has not provided yn adequate study tis anticipated by the municipalities. The city says the problem must be studied by futltime, fully qii-.tifel personnel supported by research staff.

As an interim measure, the city suggests municipal grants ba increased so that property taxes will not have to bs raised. The brief made public Monday, claims that the trade-off in revenues suggested by Mr. Far-ran would leave Edmonton with a deficit of 1.3 mills and that proposals made to provide property tax rcb'ef apply to only 50 per cent of city residents.
