Mon., May 17, 1965 Page 3 The Ottawa Citizen Man in spy case now near death The Canadian civil servant involved in the latest Soviet espionage plot in Canada is unlikely ever to go into court, even if the government decides he should be prosecuted, says an authoritative source. The civil servant, one of two, men referred to in an announcement May 8 that two members of the Soviet embassy had bei expelled from Canada, was described by Prime Minister Pearson in the Commons as being "gravely ill." In fact, says a high source, the man is dying of a natural illness and is not expected to live more than another week or so. Diefenbaker wants names SUDBURY (CP) Opposition leader John Diefenbaker wants the names of the two Canadians involved in the Soviet spy case. Speaking at a testimonial dinner Saturday, Mr. Diefenbaker said he doesn't know "why it is that a man who takes money from the USSR to undermine Canada and destroy the nation shouldn't have his name revealed." Redistribution West Quebec ridings change By Norman Campbell ClUten staff writer Western Quebec's electoral face is almost completely new in the proposed redistribution of federal constituencies recommended by the Electoral Boundaries Commission. Pontiac and Gatineau riding are merged under the name Pontiac. It becomes tlmost wholly a rural riding. The name Gatineau goes to a new constituency chiefly made up of a large portion of the former La belle riding. Hull will heroine urban Hull city riding loses a considerable part of its rural area but added are urban and suburban areas which make the riding almost wholly urban. In Quebec generally which loses one of its 75 seats in the proposed redistribution, the old names are kept, but many of them have almost completely new geographical delineations. Alexis Caron (L Hull)) hailed the redistribution. He said he has lost Gatineau, Gatineau Point, Buckingham, Angers and Masson and intervening areas but has added to Hull (all of which is now in Hull constituency) the urban areas of West Hull, East Hull, Lucerne-, Deschenes, Aylmer and Cantley. Hull riding will now have a population of about 79,000. The parts of the present constituency of Hull which tended to a strong Conservative vot. have been taken out. They are in the new riding of Pontiac. Objection deadline July 16 Mr. Caron noted that objectors to redistribution will have a chance to present their case to the Electoral Boundaries Commission. Objections must be registered by July 16 and public sittings are scheduled for mid-August. Roy Fournier, MLA for Gatineau, said this morning that he will appear before the commission and object to the new boundary being set by the commission regarding Gatineau County. He feels that Maniwaki and Mount Laurier should be included in the same riding. Gerard Girouard, Conservative MP for Labelle, said he is surprised by the new boundaries of Labelle riding. He said he would have to re-adapt himself to the new boundary because it will touch three ridings. He was sorry to lose supporters for his cause in Labelle but hopes to find new ones. Tories face ilelirate problems For the Tories some interesting problems are presented. Pontiac-Temiscamingue is to go. Hon. Paul Martineau represents this seal, carrying it by virtue of the strong Conservative vote in the domhantly English section around Shawville. In Temiscaraingue the Tory was never in the race. Now, however, with Pontiac merged with most of the former Gatineau riding under the name Pontiac, the character of the riding is vastly changed. It becomes about 50-50 in its division between French and English-speaking populations. But gone from it are such Liberal strongholds as Lucerne (which went 3 to 1 Liberal in 1963), Aylmer and other urban clusters. Mr. Martineau no longer lives in the riding, having taken up residence in Lucerne which is in Hull riding. Thomas Van Dusen of Aylmer wh,i was Tory candidate in Gatineau the last two or three times. Ls now a resident of the Hull constituency by virtue of the inclusion of Aylmer in it. The Pontiac riding would look like the Tories' best chance in Western Quebec and there may be a battle for the nomination. Here are the riding boundaries: Hull keeps the city of HulL loses Gatineau, Gatineau Point and gains Aylmer, Deschenes, Eardley, East and West Hull, Lucerne, all of which re in the present Gatineau riding. Gatineau riding takes in Buckingham, Gatineau, Gatineau Point, Thurso, the counties of Hull and Papineau, Kimika, Lac du Cerf, Notre Dame de Pontmain, Notre Dame du Laus, St. Aime du Lac des Isles, Gagnon, Montigny, Rivard, Rochelave. Pontiac riding include Maniwaki and Mont Laurier, Grace-field, Wakefield Aumond Aylwin, Bouchette, Cameron, Den-hold, Hincks, Low, Lytton, Masham North, Sicotte, Wakefield township, Wright, Blue Sea, Bois France, Del&ge, Egan South, Messines, Montcerf, Northfield, Ste. Cecile de Masham, Ste. Therese de la Gatineau, Maniwaki reserve, Ferme Neuve, Robertson and Pople, and Brunet. f w.. Li . '' - I - ar w- i -ill! '" t ? '..r f . i ft i , if 1 v ! I ' V i I i?

At the same time he gave assurances he sees nc indication that spending for military forces in the Dominican Republic and South Viet Nam would upset the planned reduction. The president said that the recommendations "will accomplish, prudently and responsibly, a major reform of the excise tax structure." The Johnson plan would eliminate most of the existing excise taxes on July 1, with a total slash of $1,750,000,000 on that date and with a reduction of the same amount effective next Jan. 1. Beyond that, Johnson is proposing a $464,000,000 slash spread over several years up to 1370. . Call to business To ensure that the tax reduction makes maximum contribution to price stability and balanced prosperity. Johnson said: "I call on American business to translate lower excise taxes promptly into lower retail prices for consumers." As previously announced, the tax on cars would come down from 10 to seven per cent July I (a saving of about $75 to the average car buyer) and later on to five per cent effective Jan. 1, 1567. There would be an intermediate reduction to six per cent Jan. 1, 1986. But Johnson proposed to retain a five-per-cent tax on passenger cars permanently as an important source of federal revenue.
