" " ' 1 ' B10 CALGARY HERALD Fri., December 15, 1989 J.LnJZAMJuue) JciLAi U UUL5 l7np7 I fill.- J fut I If."! ,.r Vrr$ E A Mike Sturk, Calgary Herald CLOSE CALL: Fire crews located the source of smoke Furnace causes evacuation scare A furnace malfunction caused smoke to billow from a northeast auxiliary hospital and put emergency crews on standby for a possible evacuation Thursday night. But firefighters managed to quickly control the problem at Dr. Vernon Fanning Extended Care Centre and no patients had to leave the building, at 722 16th Ave. N.E. Lubricating oil used in the .centre's basement furnace system leaked onto a hot surface and turned to smoke when a valve was accidentally left open, said division fire chief Ron Spielman. "It could have been a problem," he said. But a fan in the basement directed most of the smoke away from the building through an incinerator system that vents out the roof. "It was a lucky thing," said Spielman. About 150 patients, many in wheelchairs, would have had to be evacuated if smoke had gotten into the building, he said. Several ambulances and a city transit bus were on standby to take patients and staff to the Peter Lougheed Centre, said Spielman. Weapon show eyeing Calgary By Phillip Jang (Herald writer) A controversial military arms show may show off its wares in Calgary or Montreal, the show's organizer says. But Calgary officials doubt this city is being seriously considered. "As far as we're concerned it's a dead issue," said David Crowe, spokesman for the Calgary Economic Development Authority. "I don't think they have any intention of moving it out of the Ottawa-Hull area," said Crowe. "They're pitting one city against another." Calgary officials invited organizers of ARMX to consider Stampede Park as the site of its 1991 show after Ottawa's city council voted to ban weapons- exhibits from city facilities. Hundreds of peace activists marched in protest outside this year's version of the show. With most military buyers based in the Ottawa area, it's unlikely ARMX will come to the West, said Crowe. But show organizer Wolfgang Schmidt said he's considering the Saddledome in Calgary, the Palais des Congres in Montreal or a facility in St-Jean-de-Richelieu - just outside Montreal. He told the Canadian Press that he would choose a site by Jan. 15. If the show does come to Calgary, peace activists will be ready to demonstrate in protest, said Ker-ren Shalanski, spokeswoman for the Calgary Disarmament Coalition. Effigy burner convicted VICTORIA (CP) A Calgary man was found guilty Thursday of burning an effigy at the gates of Victoria's Sikh Temple almost two years ago. Robert Pejril, 25, was to be sentenced today. A five-man, seven-woman county court jury deliberated for 80 minutes before convicting Pejril on a charge of mischief. Pejril and Bryan Ferenz, 29, were charged after a flaming one-metre cross and a human-like form made of plastic bags and clothing were found April 19, 1988, at the temple gates. The fire caused about $1,200 damage. An arrest warrant was issued for Ferenz after he failed to appear for his preliminary hearing six months ago. The burning cross and effigy were spotted by David Turner and Jim Smith, who live in the area. Smith testified he knocked down the effigy to prevent it from doing any more damage to the gate and surrounding shrubs while his wife went to call the police. A man then appeared and pushed the effigy back up again with a stick, yelling "Go home, Sikhs," Smith said. Turner said he chased the man, who leaped into a van with two other men and drove off. The van drove past the temple one more time before the occupants parked it some distance away and walked back to the site, Turner said. City police Const. Douglas Goddard testified he arrested Pejril near the temple. On the way to the police detachment, Pejril first denied knowing anything about a van, then offered to tell the police where it was if they released him, Goddard said. Jonathan Field, who lives a few blocks away from the temple, testified he saw three men get out of a van parked on the street near his house to wrap cloth around a large cross. The incident occurred six months after one effigy was burned and another was hanged outside the same temple.
