The chamlier would dis- cuss the matter and meet gov- ernment officials to discuss their views in detail... Brock Bradley of Montreal, chairman of the chamber's ex- ecutive council and president of Liquid Carbonic Canada Ltd., said the competition bill is dan- gerous to the economy and should be changed. "Business is tough .enough now without all these restric- tions a'jd uncertainties as to where the hell you're going." WOULD RULE ON MERGERS The bill would set up a tri- bunal to approve or reject pro- posed mergers involving more than ?5 million. The tribunal would also judge charges of un- fair trade practices under toughened competition law. Mr. Peck, an officer of Power Corp. and Canada Steamship Lines Ltd., said the delegation "got a few yards" in the 70-min- tite meeting terms of making the minister understand then- position belter. But "tbere do remain some areas where we're not quite on the same wicket with Mr. Bas- ford." A major example was the bill's cutting of the qualifi- cation 'unduly' from current laws prohibiting actions which unduly restrict business compe- tition. But M. M. Hendrick, presi- dent of Allied Chemical Canada Ltd., Montreal, said Mr. Bas- ford "gave us the impression that he was going to make it (the bill) acceptable."

Fares frozen temporarily MONTREAL (CP) All li lernational air fares have been temporarily frozen at rates tha existed before the revaluation o international currencies during the weekend. A spokesman for the Inlerna tional Air Transport Association said today that since interna tional air fares are based on the pound sterling and the Uniter States dollar, the procedure o freezing rates is normal when either of the two currcncie fluctuates sharply. IATA, the trade association grouping 108 world airlines, ha called a meeting for Jan. 5 in Geneva as a result of thi change in the U.S. dollar and sterling. AH aspects of fares rates and charges will be dis cussed. An Air Canada spokesman said travellers flying between Canadian points mil not be af fected. Pending Canadian gov eminent approval, there may be some adjustment after the Ge- neva meeting.
