Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, 13, 1974 Mayor worried about lobbying EDMONTON (CP) Mayor Ivor Dent said Thurs- day he was concerned about the effects of lobbying on members of city council when they voted on a rezoning application put forward by developers Raphael and Eskandar Ghermezian. Mayor Dent made the remark at an inquiry into af- fairs at city hall being con- ducted by Mr. Justice Willian Morrow. The inquiry was sparked when Aid. Alex Fallow declared that Raphael Ghermezian had offered him a gift after Aid. Fallow voted in favor of the rezoning the brothers sought for a shopping centre development. The Ghermezians have testified it was Aid. Fallow who demanded the money. The mayor was asked about remarks he made at a council meeting which gave first reading to the rezoning proposal when he said council's behavior was "sudden and strange" and inconsistent with its earlier attitude. The concern was over the SAND gravel ASPHALT [TOLLESTRUPJ SAND and GRAVEL Construction Co.

'BRAIN-WASHED' He said he was concerned that "people had been lob- bied" and "brain-washed..." Aldermen's concerns about a monopoly situation enjoyed by specific development firms should have been registered throughout the planning process involving the shopping centre area, not raised suddenly when the project came up at council, he said. It was the first time Mayor Dent said he remembered council wanting to stop a monopoly. "It was sudden and it was strange and it appeared to concern a great number of the members of he said. Mayor Dent testified he felt the Ghermezians had put out a feeler for a bribe to suggesting through a third party he might have a job with them after he was finished as mayor if he supported their rezoning application. He testified he never Authorized anyone to approach the Ghermezians for a financial contribution to his campaign. The inquiry has been told the brothers were approached for money.

JOBS GALORE GOING BEGGING OTTAWA (CP) There was a sharp increase >n the second quarter of the year in the rate of job vacan- cies, the latest Statistics Canada survey shows. There was an average of 14 jobs going begging for every jobs in the April-June period. The rate was 11 for the two previous quarters and 12 for the se- cond and third quarters of 1973. The average number of vacant jobs in occupations covering 90 per cent of employment was in the second quarter, in the first quarter and 300 in the second quarter of 1973. The quarterly averages are based on surveys done twice monthly of 455 oc- cupation groups. Not included are workers in agriculture, domestic ser- vice, the military, fishing and trapping. About three-quarters of the additional job vacan- cies in the second quarter were in blue-collar oc- cupations. The 10 occupations with the most vacancies in the second quarter were welders, waiters, sewing machine operators, car mechanics, nurses, secretaries, barbers and hairdressers, janitors, truck drivers, and me- chanics for industrial, farm and construction machinery. nqury suggested EDMONTON (CP) The appeal division of the Alberta Supreme Court yesterday suggested the provincial government investigate the allegation by an Edmonton man that he was offered a "deal" by an RCMP.officer. The man, Albert Edward Houston, in an affidavit filed with the appeal court, said he and another man were arrested in September, 1973 following a break in at Glen- don, Alta. Richard Hunt, counsel for Mr. Houston, said sometime later his client was taken to the RCMP detachment in Edmonton. There, Mr. Houston met a constable who proposed that Mr. Houston "set up" four other men on a break-in, for which they would be arrested. In return, Mr. Houston told the court, the constable promised he would not be charged for the break-in at Glendon. Earlier, Mr. Houston said, the man arrested with him was told that if he gave police a statement and entered a guilty plea he would be treated "lightly." The man subsequently received a two-year suspend- ed sentence. On another occasion, Mr. Houston said the RCMP of- ficer, identified in the af- fidavit as Constable Jamie Graham, came to his home where a hidden tape recorder picked up part of the conver- sation.
