An Air Canada spokesman said there were long line-ups nt Toronto ticket counters and minutes but part of the problem was attributed to a passenger backlog from a heavy rain and wind storm Wednesday. Thirty-five of 100 flights were cancelled Wednesday at Toronto and schedules were also dis- rupted at Montreal because of the storm.

Also to be decided today is whether the Senate will sit Sat- urday and other extra hours to debate th: bill.

The adverse weather reached the Maritimes today where Hal- ifax was reporting flight delays and long passenger line-ups but there were no snarls attributed to the slowdown by the Air Canada ticket agents, airport workers and reservation clerks, who began working to rule across Canada Wednesday. Air Canada spokesmen in Hal- ifax, Winnipeg, Montreal, Ot- tawa and Edmonton said the slowdown was producing no no- ticeable effect although minor delays might result in some cases. Tlie employees, members of the Canadian Ah- Line Employ- ees' Association, began working "by the book" at 3 p.m. local times Wednesday to protest a breakdown Monday in contract negotiations that have been un- derway since September. Havoc, caused In large part by bad weather, reigned Wednesday night. WAIT At Toronto, nearly 1.000 tired and disgusted passengers, carrying crying children, Christmas presents and luggage jammed into the airport waiting for flights. Some said they had stood in line for up te five hours to buy a ticket. But the tickets weren't much good until the late-arriv- ing planes landed and delayed flights were rescheduled.

(AP) Tli' two hostages hrld by 100 rebellious prisoners at the Yard- ville correction centre were re- leased this morning after pris- oner grievances were broadcast on a local radio station, Gov. William CahiU announced. A spokesman said Cahill said that Ira Friedman, 31, a correc- tions officer, was released first. Then prisoners freed Assistant Superintendent Richard Seidl after the broadcast. Neither man had been harmed. The Werner's spokesman said officials were "in full con- trol of the prison." A prison spokesman said the only known damage were bro- ken windows and that there was no security problem. Attorney-General George Ku- prisoners alleged that a convict had been admitted to hospital after being subjected to "the Fascist tactics of police brutal- ity." The prisoners asked that the incident be investigated "by someone other than this institu- tional administration." No details of the incident were available. G. Thomas Durand, a state public information officer, said the only condition made for re- lease of the hostages was the publicizing of the stalement. Durand refused to say how the insurrection started. It came on the heels of the Nov. 25 takeover at Rahway state prison in which seven hostages were taken. All were released and the trouble ended after state officials agreed to hear gler said prisoners were filing j prisoner demands. hack into their cells. Tlie spokesman for Cahill said the governor intended to set up weekly meetings between pris- oners at all state institutions and the respective boards of managers, to provide an outlet for grievances.
