Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 13, 1972 THE IETHBRIDGE HESAID 19 Former FLQ leader pleads guilty MONTREAL (CP) Pierre Vallieres, a Quebec nationalist writer once described by a crown attorney as the leader of the Front de Libcraltion du Quebec, pleaded guilty here to three of 10 charges in con- nection with terrorism. It was Cie latest act in a drama which has seen Vallieres jump bail to go underground, announce he was coming out of hiding to join the Parti Que- becols, then come out of hiding to give himself up to police, and end up with a job under a federal work-incentive pro- gram. The three charges to which he pleaded guilty Involved counselling political kidnap- ping. They arose from a letter he wrote in 1960. Crown attorney Rene Dcrr> dropped seven other charges o counselling the kidnapping am or murder of prominent polit cat figures. These charges als stemmed from a letter written i 1D63. They were laid during th ctober 1670 terrorist crisis. Vallieres was allowed to re- lain free until at least next uesday when Mr. Justice Claude Bisson of the Court of jueens Bench will hear argu- lents on sentencing, VHITE NIGGERS The auihor of White Niggers of America was free on bail in September, 1971 when he ailed to show up in court to lave a date set for his trial. Notes, purporting to come from the FLQ and published in wo Montreal newspapers sev- eral days later, said he had gone into hiding "because there are more important things for a revolutionary to do in Quebec than to submit interminably to fake political trials." Three months later, in a document sent to the Montreal daily Lc Devoir, Vallieres said he was cutting all ties with the FLQ and throwing his support behind the Parti Quebecois. He described the PQ as the only "real -alternative" to the current government and urged other FLQ members and sym- pathizers to stop actions started in 1963 which culminated in the kidnap crisis of October, 1970. Four decorated for bravery LONDON (AP) Four mili- tary bomb experts who para- chuted through clouds in mid- Atlantic last May to search for bombs reported planted aboard the liner Queen Elizabeth 2, have been decorated by the Queen for brave ly, it was an- nounced today. They were awarded the Queen's Commendation for Brave Conduct. They were army Capt. Hob- ert Williams, army S.Sgt. Clif- ford Oliver, Royal Marine Lieut. Richard Clifford and Royal Marine Cpl. Thomas Jones. Just over a month later Val- lieres was back in the news when he walked Into Quebec Provincial Police headquarters and gave himself up. WORKED UNDER LIP He was released on bail again on Jan. 25 and later given permission to travel to Mont Laurier, Que. to work on a federally funded Local In- iialives Program. The fact that a professed sep- aratist was to be paid with a federal grant was termed "a flagrant matter" by former Prime Minister John Dietenba-' ker. A provincial cabinet minister in British Columbia called it an attempt by the federal govern- ment to win separatist support in Quebec. Vallieres now works at a weekly newspaper in Mont Lau- rier, 75 miles north of Ottawa. The charges to which he pleaded guilty all carry a max- imum sentence of life imprison- ment.

EDMONTON (CP) Unem- ployment figures for August show that tax concessions and grants to the corporate sector are not working and neither are more than Canadians, Javid Lewir, NDP said Tuesday. Mr. Lewis said at a news onference that record unem- loyment levels shown in fig- ures released by Statistics Can- ada are "distressing and dis- urbuig." He said the unemployment situation across Canada is not one any politician could enjoy rom a political standpoint but s evidence that the Liberal government has failed on al most every domestic issue dur- ing the last four years. Nearly all the figures lor unemployment in August were records and "shocking new cvi dence of what I've been saying justed unemployment rate rose to 6.7 per cent from 6.3 per cent in July. "The immense tax con- cessions ar.d loopholes which we have provided for the corpo- rations and the million a year or more that we give hem in direct grants are sim- ply not fulfilling their alleged impose. "According to Liberal and Conservative governnrfaits that lave built this corporate wel- fare system, the aim of all hese concessions and grants has been to create jobs. 1 have no doubt in some cases jobs were created. for Mr. Lewis said. Statistics Canada reported the number of jobless de- creased to in August from the previous month; while the seasonally-ad- "But it is obvious it is not a proper program to keep em- ployment up. It is obvioiis Iho system has failed in keeping unemployment from reaching unacceptable levels." Asked whether an NDP gov- ernment would increase corpo- ration taxes and decrease per sonal tax rales, Mr. Lewis re- plied: "That's the whole pur- pose" of what he has been say- ing. "It is our conviction that tha ordinary taxpayer, between 000 and a year income, is paying a heavier tax than he should 'pay because the corpo- rations are not paying their share of the taxes."
