It says the project is expected to be announced in mid- January. The Sun also says the project will create at least jobs and will affect almost square miles of B.C. In the federal and provincial governments jointly an- nounced a million program of port and resource devel- opment in B C. The Sun says federal and provincial economists and planners have been working out more details and enlarged the July proj- ect because it has opened up such vast forest and mineral re- sources that massive additional amounts of power are needed to develop them. The newspaper adds that an agreement on financial aid now is being negotiated with the federal department of regional eco- nomic expansion that is expected to concentrate on the northwest corner of B.C.

U.S. world troop alert debate prompts confusion OTTAWA was compounded by confusion Monday but the result appeared to be that Canadians were not involved in the Oct. 25 alert called by the United States North American air defence system. Defence Minister James Richardson told reporters Food price board 'academic' OTTAWA The Con- sumers' Association of Canada today charged that the food prices review board is ineffective in aiding the public. In a brief presented at a public board the association said major intention in setting up the board was to take pressure off the federal but it has failed to take hard ac- tion and has ignored many problems it should be investigating. The brief attacked the board for academic approach to the food price and demanded immediate action to help consumers by in-depth investigation of retailing prices. Other CAC recommen- dations asked that the con- sumer affairs department investigate ways to eliminate wasteful advertising and to re- quire advertisers to substan- tiate claims there may have been some Canadians at the North American Air Defence Com- mand headquarters in Colorado Springs. in- volved in the alert for a time.

Responding to questions Irom George Hees Edward Hastingsi. Doug Rowland and others. Mr Richardson and Prime Minister Trudeau insisted that neither Canadians nor NORAD were involved in the worldwide alert called by the U.S. because of fear of the Soviet Union's Middle East intentions. But pressed outside the Commons. Mr. Richardson said the Canadian officers on duty at NORAD jointly operated by Canadians and may have been involved for a time. Mr. Richardson and armed lorces sources gave this chain of events. Shortly before midnight on the night of Oct. a U.S. Continental Air Defence Com- mand announcement was heard on the NORAD network at North that there was an Americans-only alert. Senior Canadian armed forces officials in Ottawa were informed of this. at Colorado Springs. Canadian officers de- termined that neither NORAD nor Canadian forces were in- volved. This was confirmed in a message to J. A. Dex- traze. chief of the Canadian defence from the U.S. joint chiefs of staff at a.m. Oct. 25. It said U.S. lorces were on a worldwide alert. Gen. Dcxtraze did some checking and satisfied himself that neither Canadians nor NORAD were involved. At 7 30 am. he informed Mr. Richardson of the situation. Mr. Rowland told reporters Mr. Richardson's original statement that NORAD was not involved is nonsense. He said all communications and other facilities of the Continental Air Defence Com- mand and NORAD are hooked up and there is no way that NORAD could not be involved. Canadian officers had to be in- volved in the alert. Mr. Hees told reporters there is no way that half of NORAD. the can be on alert without Canadians being on alert.

The bombs were discovered by the owner of the house in a basement suite he had rented to Arpad who had sworn to kill his a police and a lawyer after be- ing sentenced to prison for the attempted murder of his wife. Eross died Nov. blown apart as he crossed a city street only blocks from the rented suite in the southeast area of the city Police said he was carrying dynamite and was apparently on a mission of vengeance when it ex- ploded Police had mounted a house- to-house search in order to find where Eross had been liv- ing because they believed he might have hidden explosives there But the owner of the who refused to be said he couldn't remember if police had questioned him. A boy living at the house said he had seen Eross' picture in newspapers after his but didn't recognize him without the hat he usually wore. Eross had sworn to kill his a lawyer and Mr. Jus- tice Peter Seaton after his four-year sentence. He was released from prison in Quebec in March and returned to where he ap- parently purchased dynamite and plotted revenge. Police guarded Mrs Eross and Mr. Justice Seaton.

A 10-page report by Weinberger's educa- tion and welfare department says the poor will suffer most from the growing shortages resulting from a lack of fuel. speaking about the report said the poor in particular will feel the eftects of reduced purchasing power brought on by un- employment and inflation and the lack of health services resulting from transportation and budgetary restrictions.

Despite second-reading ap- proval of the emergency energy bill Monday chances of a compromise on a Christmas recess seemed bleak. Both the Conservatives and the government said it is up to the other side to decide if the House will get a Yultide breather. John parliamentary secretary to government House Leader Allan said the Liberals are firm in their demand that three bills pass before any recess. last time I spoke with Mr he was still adamant. He told me we might even sit Christmas The three items the govern- ment wants passed quickly are energy a bill to tax crude oil exports and the elec- tion expenses bill.

Mr. Reid said in an interview there is no question of the Lib- erals weakening. If the opposi- tion the energy bill and the rest of the legislative package could be hustled through the Commons by four days before Christmas. If the Commons sits next week as now appears only Christmas Day would be an automatic holiday. with Christmas fall- ing on a Christmas Eve and Boxing Day might be tacked on to give MPs at least a semblance of a holiday. Normally the Commons breaks about two weeks before Christmas for about a month. If the Christmas-New Year's break is it will be the second disruption of normal Commons holidays since the session began Jan. 4.
