Things have never been better Housing crisis evaporates OTTAWA (CP) Canada's only real housing problem in- volves low-income families up- roolfid by urban renewal schemes who are unable lo af- ford alternate accommodation.

B. Smith, deals with the market structure and policy perform- ance of housing in the country. Among conclusions reached in (he document: a n a d i a n s are better housed, with better basic facili- ties, than ever before; construction industry has been meeting the target of the Economic Council of Canada over the last two years in prov- iding some new dwell- ings a year. are increasing faster than housing costs "so (Jiat housing accommodations are generally more four per cent of all families in Canada are forced to share houses; servicing, zoning, taxing and building code policies remain unmodified, unenlightened or non-cxislent and will almost certainly bring on a future housing crisis.

The report says Ihe current problem of low-income families being displaced and being un- able lo afford allernatc accom- modation really involves an in- come or poverty problem rather than a housing problem as such. ;Son of Expo' not like old man MONTREAL (CP) Keeping the bubble in Man and His World has made master brew- firs ot Montreal's city fathers. This year the bottle was shaken up with free admission to the former Expo 67 islands, a streamlined fair administration and new exhibits from interna- tional show-stoppers of past years. But pavilion operators and concessionaires, wistfully eye- ing the cautious spenders visit- ing the fourth edition of Ihe "son oE are wondering if things are going a bit flat. The new admission policy was intended to open the floodgates lo a surge of visitors previously deterred by a J2.50 entry fee. A few financial comers were trimmed by disbanding the spe- cial city department in charge ot Man and His World and ecrv- icing the fair tlirough existing city departments. Results of Hie moves are partly encouraging, Francois Zalloni, information director for the City of Montreal, said in an interview. "Attendance Is definitely run- ning higher than last he saic' without disclosing his de- partment's estimates. Problems with the now-un- manned turnstiles have put an end to tallies of visitors, as was done during past seasons. Last year there were 6 visits to Hie June-lo-Septcmber fair, a drop from the previous year's total but still above the six-million mark fair officials deem a success.

The new rates become effective Thurs- day. kia and Iran speak of success only in comparison with other pavilions. All say they could ac- commodate more visitors. They blame part of Ihe prob- em on the admission prices. About one-third of the 55 pa- vilions are free while others charge from 25 cents to 51 for displays ranging from Chinese acrobats to a laccmnker from Belgium.

There is "always the dan- ger" such grants would filter into builders' pockets, he said, but government encourage- ment for more housing should keep prifjes low. The premier, campaigning for the Aug. 30 provincial elec- tion, announced the grants Tuesday for families making Jess than annually and buying their first home. The government, would pay [or Hie grants with revenue's lo be gained from an expanded provincial economy, the pre- mier said, but did not indicate how the economy would be im- proved.

Salmon versus Sykes CALGARY (CP) Jay Sal- mon, Social Credit candidate in Calgary Foothills, said Wed- nesday Mayor Rod Sykes will soon issue a report recommend- ing Mr. Salmon be removed as city solicitor. In a prepared statement is- sued by his campaign manag er, Mr. Salmon denied any im- propriety, contended his prop- erty holdings are all public knowledge and said he is will- ing to slnrt defamation action if necessary. Mr. Salmon said last month that an inquiry into the land dealings o[ civic employees was politically motivated and was aimed at himself. "Mayor Ttod Sykes, in Kelow- na, B.C., said in a telephone in- terview that he would not he issuing any statements about Mr. Salmon. The mayor said the inquiry is in the hands of city commis- sioners and he could not mnke a statement until their report is prepared. City commissioners had no comment about the conlenls of tho report hut said it is intend- ed as much to vindicate people as to prove any wrong doing. beer gardens. Visitors and pavilion direclors alike complain lhat the absence of guide books, meagre public- ity and the occasionally unin- formed and insufficiently bilin- gual city hostesses used by some pavilions ward off the public. "People don't like to pay to enter a pavilion if they don't even know what they are get- said Miroslav Ilruby, commissioner-general of the pavilion. Operators of food and handi- craft overbid for Lheir concessions in expectation o[ large they are faring no better. "Business is only half of what it was last don't know what said Miss S. Chen, whose Lucky Enterprises operates seven Chinese bou- tiques and a restaurant on the sile. The open-air Place des Na- tions which charges a flat for such top-flight entertainers as Paul Anka, Mahalia Jackson and Procul Hanun is not Back- ing them in either. A recent Ann-Margrel concert filled a s.'anL of the thea- tre's seals. And only watched Paul Anka lasl week- end. On the other liand, lop-flight jazz performers such as trum- peter Dizzy Gillespie and bari- tone saxophonist Gerry Mulli- gan have been drawing near ca- pacity crowds at the Kiosque Internationale during their weekday appearances. Mr. Zalloni said it is loo soon to wag a disapproving (inger Bt this year's innovations. The bulk of tho tourist trade is starting now, he said, and Monlrcalcrs who have been just strolling the still-beautiful grounds will come back to the pavilions in cooler weather. Officials still iiedge at discus- lion the ilcficit lhat lags be- hind Man and His World like a stiff chaser. Lasl year's deficit million, parlly offset by a million contribution from the Quebec government. "Talking about deficits is a bit said Mr. Zal- loni. "Mar and His World pro- vides or jobs for stu- clenls every summer and by at- tracting tourists lo the area gives Ihe g o v r n m e n t vast amounts in sales and hotel taxes.
