Alderman sticks to his guns EDMONTON (CP) City alderman Bill McLean Mon- day reiterated testimony he gave earlier about his dealings with two developers to an inquiry into affairs at city hall being conducted by Justice William Morrow. The inquiry, now in its 20th day, was prompted by a state- ment by Aid. Alex Fallow that developers Eskandar and Raphael Ghermezian offered him after he voted in favor of a rezoning they sought. The developers have charged it was Aid. Fallow who demanded the money. Aid. McLean repeated that he did not take an offer of campaign contributions from the brothers seriously and that he did not send his son Doug to see them about a job. Aid. McLean said he voted against the rezoning because he considered it to be "a gigantic change" in the city's plan for the area and because of the size of the shopping centre proposed was "not sound planning." He denied that he had sought a job for one of his campaign workers, Ron Soullier. in exchange for his favorable vote on the rezoning application.
