LEGISLATION TO RAISE the legal drinking age to 19 was narrowly defeated Tuesday in a free vote in the Legislature which split all three caucuses. (Page 1).

IT WAS A BAD day for Tory I ader Joe Clark. First, he had to summon John Reyn- olds, a British Columbia Tory MP, to Ot- tawa for a chat about CBC allegations that linked Mr. Reynolds to underworld figures. Then he got the news that PC Jacques La- voie is defecting to the Liberals. (Page 1).

THE POLICY BOARD of the Co-ordin- ated Law Enforcement Unit. which in- cludes B.C.'s deputy attorney-general, has known for more than a year of tapes linking MP John Reynolds to local organized crime figures, a senior CLEU official said Tuesday. (Page 1).

THE WAY SOME people find fault, you'd think there was a reward.

A glaring example of political patronage

THE OBVIOUS QUESTION is how is it that such behav- ior was allowed to continue for as long as it did.

The embarrassment caused by the Pilutik Affair should be equally shared by government, The Law Society of Man- itoba, and by the former judge himself.

Pilutik bared his soul last week while I was elsewhere and, after catching up on what I'd missed, it appears that Tony Pilutik was searching desperately for a little compas- sion. He'd given up hoping that the affair would simply die with time.

Ironically, the day previous to my departure, a lady had called suggesting an address that I might be interested in visiting. She said it was where the former judge was hang- ing his hat. The address rang a bell. It‘s a house which was once offered for sale by a person who operates one of this city's largest entertainment agencies and is also tied in with the Constellation Room of the Airport Hotel.

Both the Constellation room and go-go girls were men- tioned in the Law Society's Pilutik memorandum.


ON APRIL I7, 1968, Tony Pilutik was nominated as the NDP candidate in a byelection. He was defeated.

On Oct. 17, 1969, Tony Pilutik was appointed a magis- trate by then NDP attorney-general Al Mackling. The ap- pointment was made despite the fact that Pilutik was not highly recommended by the Law Society.

On Feb. 18, 1976, the attorney-general. now Howard Pawley, said the government had no wish to proceed fur- ther against Anthony Pilutik now that it had succeeded in removing him from the bench.

I Vic Grant

On June 10, I977. Howard Pawley ordered a review of charges which led to the resignation. Obviously, Howard Pawley is indicating that the investigation carried out by the attorney—general‘s department wasn‘t as thorough as the investigation carried out by The Law Society of Mani- toba.

On June 2. 1977, Arthur A. Rich, Q.C., said in a letter to The Tribune that reports claiming the law society was withholding information were untrue and apparently based on a lack of understanding of society's rights and powers regarding publicity. He termed it misinformation generat- ed by the Winnipeg media.

Oii June 13, 1977, Arthur A. Rich, Q.C.. president of the Law Society. said he had been unfamiliar with specific de- tails of the former judge's misconduct until they were re- leased Friday by the society's judicial committee.

G i O

HOWARD PAWLEY HAD STATED that there was no need for further investigation on the part of the attorney- general‘s office when, in fact, from what is included in the

Law Society's niemorandum. there is need for further in- vestigation.

How many speeding tickets were signed “Proceedings stayed by Crown?"

How many times were there that Pilutik did not excuse himself from presiding at trials at which friends aiid/or acquaintances stood as the accused‘?

How often do parties occur on government air services aircrzifti‘

How many judges can sit. down in general conversation and state that they could have a contract put out on a City of Winnipeg police sergeant‘?

I-lardly a day goes by in court when an accused doesn’t cite liquor as a reason or excuse for the crime which had been committed. Now the tables have been turned and it's a former judge who offers liquor as an excuse for what oc- curred.

What bugs me just a little is that there were those who were aware that the conduct of Anthony Pilutik since as far back as I973 was not conduct becoming the position he held.

The Pilutik Affair is a glaring example of the errors in political patronage. In my opinion Aiitliony Pilutik was ap- pointed judge partly on the basis of his political tie-4 rather than solely on his qualifications to serve the community as a provincial judge.

If nothing else. the procedure used to appoint magis- trates should be investigated. It shouldn't be that a judge can be appointed on the strength of anything but his quali- fications for the job.
