Noise bylaw not enforced EDMONTON fCP) The city's noise bylaw is not being enforced because it can't be en- forced, Police Chief Fred Sloane says. He told the police commission that the bylaw, which came into effect Jan. 1 with enforcement beginning Aug. 9, "is not cap- able of being enforced until it is reconstructed." Harry Wilson, commission counsel, said there are techni- cal problems with noise meters. He said the difficulties in en- forcing the b y 1 a w revolved around factors such as wind, speed and surrounding noises which might affect the validity of meter readings.

QUEBEC (CP) All three opposition parties in the Quebec national assembly Wednesday called for repeal of or changes n a IfXiil law guaranteeing Que- bec parents a choice of English or French as the language of school instruction for their chil- dren. They took the stand in an edu- cation committee discussion of Biil 28, the government's propos- al to reduce the 33 Roman Cath- olic and Protestant, French and English school boards on Mont- real Island to 11 "neutral" uni- fied boards. Education Minister Guy Saint-Pierre said he was deter- mined to have the bill, which passed second reading Tuesday, become law before Christmas. Jean-Noel Tremblay of the Unite-Quebec party said that be- fore Bill 2B is applied, perhaps in 1975, the government should prepare legislation making French a working language in the province and giving it priori- ty status. He said that existing legisla- tion on the language of school instruction should be repealed. That legislation, known as Bill was passed two years ago by the Union Nationale government after a heated language and ed- ucation dispute in the Montreal suburb of St. Leonard. The Union Nationale changed its name to Unite-Quebec last October. The Parti Quebecois, mean- while, held a news conference Wednesday to announce it would introduce an amendment to Bill 28 removing the right of Mont- real Island parents to have the freedom to choose their chil- dren's language of instruction. Under its amendment, chil- dren already studying in Eng- lish and children whose mater- nal language is English would be free to attend English-lan- guage schools if their parents wished. But future immigrant Parly leader Rene Lcvcsquc told reporters the amendment would encourage the integration of immigrants into the French- Canadian community while res- pecting the "acquired rights" of English Qucbecers. Creditiste spokesman Yvon Brochu said his party supported the stand of the Parti Quene- cois. Immigrants should con- form to the majority in their choice of language and the laws should be changed to recognize this principle. Mr. Tremblay said that many children would have to French schools. attend groups had voiced concern over HID language issue in briefs be- fore the education committee, Opposition parlies apparently based their demands on Mr. Saint-Pierre's recent slatcmcnt that immigrant parents are still choosing English schools for their children over French schools in a ratio of nine to one. I The immigrant trend, com- bined with the province's declin-' ing birth rate, is seen as a long-term threat jo the status of j the French-speaking majority in j Quebec. _____ j Sky is the limit TORONTO (CP) The sky is the limit when it conies to the involvement in Canadian busi- ness opportunities sought by giant Mitsui group of Japan. said Mr. nmasaiia, wno tids 8 So Shinichi Funasaka.! been with Mitsui since he grad- "We want to look at joint ven- tures using Canadian labor, parts and materials in combina- tion with Japanese said Mr. Funasalia, who has the ne'w'prcsidenl of Mitsui and unlcd from school.

Now he's working out of a posh modern office in Toronto's Royal Trust tower, and supported by a large bilingual staff and branch of- fices in Montreal, Calgary, Ed- monton and Vancouver. The giant parent company in Japan wants him to expand Mit- sui interests in Canada, which have so far concentrated on ex-; He added, however, thai such matters can't be expected to proceed immediately, since "we are waiting for the international monetary situation to settle."
