Lcthbridgc Herald I "Serving and Selling the South Voting delay urged EDMONTON (CP) A group of local clergymen have asked Premier Peter Lougheed to delay the Oct 16 civic election to allow comple- tion of a judicial inquiry in Ed monton s civic affairs In an open letter to the premier delivered Tuesday, 13 clergymen, representing the Protestant, Roman Catholic and Jewish faiths urged that no election be held until Mr Justice William Morrow has handed down his report on the inquiry The clergymen said the voting should be delayed until the report is made public and for such a reasonable period thereafter as may give the electors time to familiarize themselves with the facts and his conclusions Rev Vern Wishart of Garneau United Church, emphasized the clergymen only represented themselves but hoped the action might stimulate others to raise the same question He said the clergymen would not have sent the letter if city council had voted on this NO COUNCIL VOTE City council had the ques- tion of postponement before it twice last week but there was no vote and little debate because several aldermen refused to take part The aldermen claimed despite a contrary opinion by citv solicitor Harry Wilson, that they would have a finan- cial interest in the form of ex- tended salaries if the election was delayed Rev Edward Checkland of First Baptist Church said if the election is not delayed a lack of information could seriously affect voting I ve heard several people talking about spoiling their ballots The inquiry, still in progress was called after Aid Alex Fallow said he had been offered a gift following his vote on a rezon- ing bvlaw Minister promises to help CALGARY (CP) Al Fieger of Calgary whose 23- vear-old son Les has been in prison in Mexico since November on drug charges said Tuesday he was given assurances by External Affairs Minister Allan MacEachen that the case would be looked into Mr Fieger said Mr MacEachen promised to "do whatever he could both personally and politically to straighten things out "The minister listened to mv story very sympathetically and he said he would give the matter his personal attention "He agreed that people in power in Ottawa have a responsibihtv to look into this matter "He said he would do all he could lo get things straightened out He impressed me and I'm pleased with the results In a letter smuggled to his parents Les Fieger said the commandant of Mexico City's Lecumbem prison threatened lo kill him because of publiciU surrounding charges the Canadian was beaten and tortured after his arrest The father has charged thai Mexican officials tried to extort more than for fjis release Mayor implied he was tipsy city hall bribery probe told EDMONTON (CP) A city lawyer told the Morrow in- quiry into Edmonton's civic affairs Tuesday that Mayor Ivor Dent implied he had been under the influence of alcohol when he disclosed a story of a bribe offer last year Tevie Miller said he met the mayor Jan 11, when he was informed of remarks the mayor had made to several alderman at a Christmas par- ty in his home Mr Miller, testifying for the second day before the in- quiry, said the mayor told him he wouldn t have made the statements if he hadn't been relaxed, jovial, and had had a few drinks The inquiry, sparked by an alderman's disclosure of an alleged offer of a gift from two city land developers, was in its 25th day Questioned by W A McGillivray, counsel developers Raphael and Eskandar Ghermezian, Mr Miller said the mayor "clear- ly implied" he had been somewhat under the influence of alcohol when he recounted the story of the bribe offer Mr Miller also repeated in- formation about his suspicions concerning the passage of a city bylaw permitting rezon- mg of land in West Jasper Place for Westgate Shopping Centre He said alderman Una Evans told him early in January that Mr Dent felt he may have been offered a bribe in connection with rezoning RETURNED TO VOTE She also expressed interest in Aid Ron Hayter's concern for the rezoning application by the Ghermezian brothers She said Mr Hayter had flown back from South America to vote on the bylaw and afterwards returned to that continent After consulting with his legal partners, Mr Miller told the inquiry he decided the in- formation should be passed on to the city police The inquiry was ordered after allegations were made in May by Mr Dent and Aid Alex Fallow, although city police had quietly been investigating the matter since January City Police Inspector A W R Lefeuvre told the inquiry Tuesday he personally decid- ed to continue a police investigation into the alleged bribery attempt involving Aid Fallow after he decided there was no corroDoratmg evidence to support criminal charges Insp Lefeuvre, who was selected to investigate the allegations by the then chief constable, Fred Sloane, said a formal complaint was receiv- ed Jan 23 from an RCMP of ficer who had spoken to Aid Fallow about the incident The police inspector said Aid Fallow gave him a signed statement about the incident and told him the Ghermezians had said they had made millions of dollars as a result of the rezoning The inspector repeated there didn't appear to be any corroborating evidence to sup- port criminal charges, but he decided "in fairness to everyone" to continue the investigation Insp Lefeuvre added that when he investigated aldermen, he did not take notes at the time Instead he waited until the next day and compiled notes from memory Father and son Pie Jim Rogers and his father, MWO Gerry
