Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, September 26, 1974 Judge to hear inquests next month Lethbridge Provincial Judge L.W. Hudson, recently appointed interim coroner during the provin- cial government's overhaul of the coroner system, says he probably won't hear any cases for at least a month. Judge Hudson, who received the appointment from the Alberta attorney general's department, noted there are four in- quests upcoming, one this week and three in October. "But the present cor- oners have already viewed the body and studied the evidence. They will probably carry out the rest of the he said He added any new cases that come up will probably be handled by him. The coroner's job and the inquests, he presumes, will continue under the old Coroners Act until the new act is passed. Judge Hudson said if the new act is passed "probably all provincial judges in Lethbridge and district will act as cor- oners "I gather the new act has been drafted but the government is waiting to study the report made by Mr.'Justice W.J.C. Kirby of the Alberta Supreme Court, head of a three-man justice reiorm com- Judge Hudson said. He explained once the report has been reviewed the new Coroners Act will be finalized. "But just how long this interim period will be depends on when Mr. Justice Kirby presents his Judge Hudson said. He said there will probably be many changes brought about with the new act but named only one. "I imagine the biggest change will be that they will dispense with a jury at Judge Hudson said. register to vote The voter registration total stood at 2.330 today after 442 people slipped down to city hall under the deadline Wednesday to get on the civic election voters' list.

Local civil servants want Hohol to resign City Scene The 600-member Lethbridge branch of the provincial civil service association today of- ficially backed a demand for the resignation of Labor Minister Bert Hohol. CSA President Bill Broad said earlier that the minister should resign for giving provincial employees a cost of living raise without consulting the union are certainly going to support our president." Ted Buchanan, chairman of the Lethbridge branch, said today Certified Dental Mechanic CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. Lower Level PHONE 327-2822 UNROYAL ZETA Mileage Guaranteed Tires ZETA 40 RADIAL Ironclad Guarantee The CSA is asking for raises across the board to meet rising living costs, and another a month on top of that for northern employees. Mr. Buchanan said the minister's move to grant or seven per cent raises came on the eve of negotiations opening. Employees here feel it was an attempt to circum- vent criticism from private industry by granting a raise now so next year's settlement "doesn't look like so he said. It was also first announced as being retroactive to Jan. 1 but Dr. Hohol apparently changed his mind, Mr Buchanan said. Dr. Hohol has dismissed the demand as "undeserving of comment." The minister said the seven per cent or minimum increase was not a "unilateral'' action as had been said by Mr. Broad, but was instead part of govern- ment wage policy. Fourplex appartments approved Construction of two fourplex apartment buildings at 2314 and 2318 23rd St. N. was approved by the Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday. The fourplexes will be built by Starlight Construction Ltd Also approved by the commission was the erection of a 78- foot-high tower by CFCN-Television at 642 13th St. N. An application by Triangle Feeds Ltd. to establish a warehouse for dried grains at 2937 7th Ave. N. was tabled by the commission for more information. Hospital granted A provincial order-in-council has cut some red tape for ad- ministrators at St. Michael's Hospital. A hospital spokesman said today the cabinet has instructed the provincial hospital commission to make an outright grant to the Lethbridge hospital to pay for renovations to the hospital laundry room. The recent order-in-council rescinds an earlier order allowing the hospital to borrow the money needed to convert the laundry room to a storage area. Although the provincial commission would normally pay off debentures on behalf of the hospital, the St. Michael's spokesman said the government's move will cut red tape. Laundry room renovations, to be completed this year, are being done by Gillett Construction of Lethbridge. Food workers talking wages Negotiations are continuing between the Canadian Food and Allied Workers and the York Farms Division of Canada Packers Ltd. Dave Dyck, plant manager, said Tuesday he expects more talks to be held in the near future. "I'm sure we'll get it settled before the contract expires." he said. The contract expires Nov 16.
