The legislation was introduced in the Commons just before the summer recess and is to be taken up again in the fall. In a news release, the asso- ciation said the new legislation should include regulation "of advertising which omits perti- nent facts about a product or that which preys on fears of social unacceptability or implies that use of a product will pro- duce instant popularity. "In CAC's opinion, these types of advertising require regula- tion under the act." TJie association says regula- tions regarding sale prices or special pi'ices should apply to services as well as commodi- ties. it urges all Canadians to ex- press their views to their MPs or to Ron Basford, consumer af- fairs minister.

The opening of a strip coal mine near the entrance to Banff National Park has be- come an issue in the campaign for the Aug. 30 provincial elec- tion. Mr. Henderson told a news conference the federal govern- ment in 1899 sold outright the Radio broadcasts reversed mineral on .1 portion tif the area in Canmorc where mining operations are taking pb.'j. The coal leases on the land were issued by Ottawa in ISO'J. The slipulalum which re- quires the province to honor the agreement "is in fact part of our Camidifln Mr. Henderson said. "It would lie undcn'ledly es- Ircnu-ly popular lo make stale- menLs indicating compliance with the request for a fermina-' lion to coal mining in the Canmore corridor. In fact nothing would please the'. government more at this time. Unforlunalely, the government i in Ihc discharge of its responsi- bilities can nul afford the par- tisan luxury of short-term poli- tical expediency." loiin approved OTTAWA (CP) A federal ican of was announced today to finance a land acquisi- tion and development, projeti at Spiril River, Alta The loan, lo AJbtrla Corp., is lo cover 90 cent of the cost of buying
