DOWN 90 PER CENT Previous surveys showed that peregrines have largely been exterminated in the eastern U.S., and in the western U.S. and Mexico have suffered popu- lation declines as high as 90 per cent, the article says. It adds that since 19-10 when DDT was first used on a large scale, thickness of peregrine eggshells has decreased an av- erage l.i to 20 per cent. The evidence is overwhelming that, "peregrine falcons have been victimized by hard pesti- cides such as DDT and the article says. "ft is sad and frustrating to come to the realization that for all their magnificent appear- ance and unspoiled beauty, our boreal forests and tundras are chemically polluted environ- menls, at least as far as the peregrine is concerned." for cablevision CALGARY (CP) Cal- gary companies said that Sect. target date for the start of full- scale cablevision telecasting in the city.
