Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta More provincial housing authority is supported By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) Municipal leaders in major cities support provincial demands for greater provincial control of housing programs, Toronto Mayor Da- vid Crombie said Tuesday. He said most major cities support provincial governments seeking federal funds without strings attached so they can set their own prioritiss in housing. Michael Dennis, a housing ex- pert and adviser to Mr. Crorcibie, said some provinces are ready now to take over full authority for administering housing programs. .Quebec already receives funds in bulk for certain kinds of housing and Ontario and Al- berta are seeking the same rights. The two man were appearing before the Commons we'fare committee which is examining a government bill amending the National Housing Act. The bill would establish new programs for improving neighbor'nocds and houses and provide addi- tional assistance for low-income persons. Ian Watson parliamentary secretary to Ur- ban Affairs Minister Ron Bas- ford, said: find it hard to take that the feteal government should remove itself from hous- ins." The provincial governments had not taken full advantage of such programs as land assem- bly which are heavily financed by the federal government, he said. John Gilbert Bvoadview) said Mr. Crombie and Mr. Dennis seemed to be "putting all your eggs in one basket." There was no assur- ance that the provincial or mu- nicipal governments wcidd pro- vide adequate housing for those who need it. Mr. Crombie said municipal- ities should have a greater say in housing policy because munici- pal officials are much closer to the local housing situation than federal or provincial govern- ments. Mr. Dennis said the federal government should set broad guides for housing programs end lend money to the provin- cial governments to carry them out. He said there are ''tre- mendous difficulties" created when three levels of govern- ment are involved in approving individual housing projects. Mr. Dennis, who carried out a housirg sCudy for ths fsdsral government two years ago, said that senior officials in the Csn- tral Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) have been wor-1 ried that the authority granted j to Quebec under the block grants approach is illegal. But the NHA amendments proposed by the government did not clear this roadblock aside, he said. Ontario and Alberta led de- mands for block funding for j provincial housing efforts at a' federal-provincial housing con- ference in January. But this re- quest was not accepted by the federal government. Mr. Dennis said some prov- inces may wish to continue with the existing arrangement. They may want CMHC to administer housing programs. He also said the federal gov- ernment would have to provide million annually for 10 years for land-assembly pro- grams before soaring land prices could be controlled. S100-MILLIO1V TARGET Mr. Basford has said the gov- ernment intends to spend about million annually on land assembly and new communities programs. The new commu- nities plan would permit assem- bly of land for entirely new towns. Mr. Dennis said the urban af- fairs minister has not set a limit on spending for land-as- sembly efforts. A budget of million could be acceptable as a start. He rejected the use of rent controls unless there are con- trols on all prices and wages. Rents were set as a result of other economic pressures. Mr. Dennis said the housing act should be completely rewrit- ten. But, until that is done, he said he will the social housing policy the governmeent was adopting in the NHA amendments.

By JOHN HAV OTTAWA (CP) Worried about passible health and envi- ronmental dangers, Environ- ment Minister Jack Davis has asked NATO to assess the at- mospheric effects of high-flying jets. He made the proposal Tues- day at the start of two-day meeting of the environment group of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, its com- mittee on the challenges of modern society. At the same session, Russell Train, chairman of the U.S. CJouncil on invironmental qual- ity, proposed a NATO research program aimed at harnessing sunlight and underground heat and steam as energy sources. NATO Secretary-General Jo- seph Luns of the Netherlands told reporters the committee's work already has been so effec- tive that the Soviet Union, tar- get of NATO's military pre- paredness, has "asked if it could profit" from its work. He disclosed that informal discussions already have taken place between NATO and Soviet officials in Brussels, and some form of "loose co-operation" be- tween the two blocks might be feur.d. But there had not yet been any official response from NATO to the Soviet initiative. That would have to come from the alliance's council of minis- ters. The NATO environment com- mittee already has eight proj- ects going in several countries, including studies of air and wa- ter pollution, road safety and health care. Mr. Davis said the jet pollu- tion problem is specially press- ing for northern countries as Canada, because the stratos- phere, where the danger occurs, is nearer the earth in polar lati- tudes. He said the danger Is twofold. LINKED TO CANCER First, jets in th 2 stratosphere, to feet high, burn ozone. Reduced ozone means that more ultra-violet light from the sun reaches the ground. There has been speculation that ultra-violet light is linked to some forms of cancer. Second, jet engines leave par- ticles in the stratosphere that remain suspended for years. That increases cloud cover, af- fecting climate. Mr. Davis said cloudiness on the heavy North Atlantic air route has already doubled. But more research is needed to measure the precise impact or jets and its effect on environ- ment and health. 'As a Canadian I am a little worried. As environment minis- ter for Canada, I should be." With its advanced know-how and available aircraft, NATO is uniquely equipped to tackle the problem. World Bank aid agreement near By EDWIN L. DALE JR. New York Times Service WASfflNGTON-The world's industrial nation's, with the United States still holding back, are close to agreeing to nearly double their contribu- tions to the World Bank for aid to the poorest of the less devel- oped countries. The package, it has been dis- closed here by U.S. and World Bank officials, would call for contributions bv the richer na- Laviolette was sixth observer killed OTTAWA (CP) Capt. C. E. Laviolette of Quebec City, the peace observer killed in Viet- nam Saturday, was the sixth Canadian officer to die while serving on an international peace mission and the fourth to die in Vietnam. The defence department said Tuesday no trace has been found of three Canadians pre- sumed kilhd in the crash of an International Control Commis- sion plane flying to Hanoi from Saigon Oct. 13, 1365. Lost were John Tunwr cf Montreal, an external affairs of- ficial, Cpl. Vernon Perkin of Regina and Sgt. J. S. Byrne of Aylmer, Que. f tions of billion a year for three years starting in 1975. The present rate of contribu- tions is million a year, with tha U.S. share 40 per cent, or million. The U.S. will in- sist on a smaller share in the new round, if it participates at all. The contributions go to ths world Bank's soft loan sub- sidiary, the International De- velopment Association. It lends at no interest, with 50 years to pay, to countries with per capi- ta incomes of a year or less such as India and most na- tions in Africa. In previous rounds of re- j plenishment of association i funds, the U.S. has general- i Jy negotiated a share of about 40 per cent of the total and then has gone to Congress for the funds. While the U.S. share 1 has always been approved by Congress evenually there have been lengthy delays and sev- eral close votes on whether to provide the money at ell. This time the treasury which is in charge of U.S. participa- tion in international landing agencies such as the World Bank, has decided to make no pladgs full sdveace consultation, and perhaps even clearance, by the key congres- sional committees ccr.carned, chiefly the appropriations com- mittees.
