The federal government can't really set regulations Jor the operation of irrigation districts because they are controlled by provincial law, he said. Mr. Olson pointed out what the federal plan entails, includ- ing: million in actual work by the federal government on renovating c x i s t ing districts. Tho key here, he said, is that the federal government is not going to give money to some other body to spend.

Ily JIM MAYHIK Herald -Staff Lctlibritlgc Chamber of Com- merce directors unanimously decided Wednesday to put a muzzle on the news media all in the name of free .speech. AL the last regular meeting of the directors it was suggest- ed that perhaps the news media should not be invited to the meetings and that press re- leases be given to the media following the meelings. It was suggested, at the time that perhaps media rep resentatives inhibited free-flow- ing discussion because of fears of being quoted or misquoted and the fear of starling contro- versy. Chamber president Terry BJancl said Wednesday that ex- ecutive decided against ban- ning the media from the meet- ings but recommended greater use of committee-on-the-whole meetings. Media representalives would be allowed lo remain in the room during committee ol" the whole meetings but would be honor-bound to not report what went on. The recommendation was unanimously approved by the directors. In other business, Mr. Eland said that prospective chamber members had objected to the principle of the chamber ac- cepting an annual from the city, questioning (tie cham- ber's effectiveness when it is sifting in council's bock pocket. He suggested that if the chamber did not accept any- thing from the city, this objec- tion might bo. overcome and the chamber might gain new members. He also warned, however, that the chamber is having fi- nancial problems, that this year's budget is higher than last year's and ihat if the city's was not accepted, the chamber might be in deep- er financial problems. Mr. Bland then unilaterally decided to invoke the commit- tee of the whole policy to give directors an opportunity fo pre- sent their views, details of which are not known.
