Mr. was elected to the Commons in 1945 and was appointed justice minister in 1957 by former prime minister John Die- fenbaker. James Bay case ruling disappoints MONTREAL Law- yers for the James Bay native people reacted with dis- appointment but little sur- prise Friday to the Supreme Court of Canada rejection of their request to appeal a Quebec Court of Appeal ruling allowing work on the James Bay project to continue. James who has represented the natives of the region in their fight against the project for almost two was not surprised but little The Supreme in a 3- to-2 rejected Mr. O'Reilly's request to have the work on the hydroe- lectric project halted and for permission to appeal the appeal court ruling which suspended a Superior Court in- junction halting the project Mr O'Reilly said he expects to be back before the Supreme Court some time in 1974. The James Bay Develop- ment Corp appeal of the Superior Court ruling is not expected to go before the Court of Appeal before March or April said Mr. O'Reilly. It is generally expected that no matter which In- dians or the the rights case in Quebec the case will be taken to the Supreme Court for final judgment. PREMIER PLEASED Work on the project will continue while the govern- ment tries to negotiate a settlement with the natives of the region opposed to the pro- ject. But the aide said both the premier and his special repre- sentative at the Ciaccia. national assembly member for Montreal Mont not comment on the talks for fear of jeopard- izing their success Jacques public relations director of the JBDC. said both parties need to prepare their appeals and they will not be ready before March Mr. Gauthier said that the work in the mile territory in northwest Quebec is slowing down for the ChristmasNew Year period but will speed up again in the new year. Work on the project was halted for six days in November after Mr. Justice Albert Malouf of Quebec Superior Court ordered a tem- porary halt to the project until the rights of the Indians and Eskimo in the region had been settled. Many of the approximately workers in the region have left to spend the holiday. ADDED WEIGHT The Indians' which was given added weight by Mr Justice Malouf's original is that the legislation authorizing the project is un- constitutional because it does not take into account aboriginal rights to the area. They also say the project will damage the environment and irreparably change their way of life Mr O'Reilly expressed dis- pleasure at all the talk of negotiations between the In- dians and the Quebec govern- ment in an attempt to reach an out-ofcourt settlement. He said the main aim of the Crees and Inuits of the region is to halt the project. are prepared to talk to people but we are a long way The federal government fi- nanced the Indians court battles originally with a 000 Chief Delisle but negotiations for further financing were bogged down By STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA Supply and Services Minister Jean- Pierre Goyer disclosed Friday that he at one time suggested to Northrop aviation that a judge be asked to settle a por- tion of the American com- pany's dispute over the CF-5 aircraft. He said in the Commons he had hoped that the rest of the three-year-old dispute over the aircraft that has been the subject of controversy since it was acquired by the armed forces could be settled out of court. The minister expressed dis- appointment but no surprise that Northrup has launched a 5-million suit against the government for damages and outstanding payments in con- nection with production of 115 CF-5s by Canadair of Montreal. The CF-5 is a Canadian ver- sion of Northrup's F-5 fighter and was produced in Montreal under a licensing agreement between Northrup and the government. Because of the dispute with Northrup Canada is holding back several millions in pay- ments. Different interpretations of that licensing agreement makes up part of the dispute between the company and the government. The company has cancelled the which does not make much difference because Canadair has no new orders for the planes. The Montreal company now is building 18 aircraft for the armed forces as these are already in the process of they are not affected by the Northrop ac- tion. Canada sold 18 aircraft from its armed forces squadrons to Venezuela. It says the agreement says Canada can sell aircraft. But Northrup says that the term phased out would apply only if Canada was dropping all of its CF-Ss. Canada sold single-seat CF- Ss and ordered dual-seat air- craft from Canadair to replace them. It wanted the latter for training purposes. It is this disagreement that Mr. Goyer said Canada is will- ing to have settled in a court. The other areas of dispute revolve around the Canadian claim that Northrop did not perform in the manner it con- tracted to do in 1966. Northrop to have spent a certain amount of money in Canada that was equal to part of the money Canada paid for the F-5. This is the so-called offset arrangement that most Canadian contracts with foreign suppliers contain. Canada says Northrup did not spend enough on offset. stop you for routine checks.
