In urging integrated studies and planning before construc- tion starts, the study says the James Bay project provides "an opportunity to integrate ecolog- ical research with a major engi- neering program in order to de- velop data and experience that will be needed in future re- source developments in these latitudes." To Ihis end the study notes 8 number of other ecological im- plications of the project and makes a series of recommenda- tions aimed at controlling envi- ronmental hazards. EFFECT ON WILDLIFE Noting thai "many biological processes in Quebec's sub-Arc- tic operate at a considerably slower pace than they do in the mare southerly latitudes of Can- it says there are bound to be effects on fish, fowl and other animals such as beaver, caribou and moose as well as the v e g e t a I i o n because of changes in river flows and Ihe chemical contents of the water due to diversions for Ihe power project. The project was announced by Quebec Premier Robert Bouras- sa's Liberal government in April, 1971, on the first anniver- sary of Ms 1970 election victory. Cost was estimated then at billion although Mr. Bourassa revised this estimate Wednes- day lo between and bil- lion depending on Interest rates for financing arid inflation. The project is divided into two development proposals, Ihe first harnessing Ihe Noltaway, Broadback and Rupert rivers and the second the La Grande River basin, all of which flow to James Bay. Together the rivers drain aboul one-quarter of Quebec's total area.

Soldiers accused of butchery By HAROLD MORRISON LONDON (CP) The British oldier stands accused by Cath- lies of butchery: the cry gainst him echoes through Catholic ghettoes. We got one and we will get 2 says an Irish Repub- can Army spokesman. Sunday, Jan. 30: What really appened on that tragic after- icon? Who fired first in the reak-up of the Londonderry emonstration, the march that haltered British policy in Northern Ireland? Bloody Sunday: The conflict- ng, contradictory testimony de- res an answer. For two years British troops were under great strain as they attempted to separate Catholics and Protestants. From simple separation, the roops were turned into a Brit- ish force against the outlawed IRA. Soldiers died in ambush; some walking the streets while off-duty: others baited by re- velry with "friends" who killed them. Bloody Sunday, which brought death to 13 Catholic civilians may have been an event that tested military the beginning of a new policy of tougher response. PARATROOPS SILENT Catholics have given their side. Military corrananders and, British defence leaders have re- plied. But the paratroops, the men ordered over the barriers remain silent. They await the verdict of a wartime gunner who rose to be brigadier-John Widgery, now chief justice of England. The British government main- tains that the army had re- ceived intelligence reports that the IRA would use the demon- stration lo attack the troops. The troops were ready. Of all the verions of what fol- lowed, these points appear un- disputed. After challenging the barri- cades, the bulk of the demon- stration turned back. But hard-core of the marchers re- mained, pitching bottles, stones, bricks, iron bars and even can- nisters of gas at the troops. The army responded with gas and rubber bullets. Water tanks were brought up to spray the ri- oters with dye. Whether the dye was intended merely as a deter- rent or more significantly as a means of later identification is open lo question. In any case, commanders or- dered the troops to round up the rioters. The troops leaped the barricades and the rioters fell back. MADE 70 ARRESTS It was clear the troops were sent in to make arrests. Maj.- Gen. Robert Ford, land forces commander, said: "We had noped to nrrest between 200 and 300 but due to a delay of aboul 10 minutes, we only got about 70." Now tlie controversy begins. The army maintains its troops came under fire from a block of subsidized apartments notorious as an IRA nest. Troops returned Ihe fire. March leaders and IRA spokesman deny lhat any shots were fired at the soldiers. In fact none of them was hit. Two were injured from an acid bomb U.S. jobless rate declines WASHINGTON (AP) The United Slates unemploymtnt rale edged down to 5.8 per cent from six last month, the govern- ment reported today. Although the actual number of jobless increased to it usually increases much more in January and the labor department figure it as a decline of on a seasonal- ly-adjusted basis. The total U.S. employment rose to on a seasonal basis, although the un- adjusted figures showed a drop of more than one million. apparently thrown from the flats. March leaders claim also that if the troops had fired at snipers in the flals, the bodies would lave shown signs of a heavy fall. There was no such evi- dence. A doctor sent in by Wil- liam Cardinal Conway, Primate of All Ireland, said some of the dead had been shot in the back. Seven priests who say they were on the scene also maintain that those killed had been shot in the streets; some in the proc- esi of running, others while lying on the ground. Among the 16 Catholics wounded, one said I he was hiding near thn flats and I was shot as he emerged to help j a woman. I ENGAGED GUNMEN i In the House of Commons, j Lord Balneil, junior defence j minister, insisted that the troops engaged only identifiable gunmen and nail-bombers. "They fired in self-defence or in defence of comrades." lie said. "I rejecl entirely lhat they fired indiscriminately and into a peaceful and innocent crowd. I reject utterly the slurs made on the parachute regiment." But Balnicl's statements, and those made by other govern- ment ministers, seemed to be drowned out. Lost, loo, was Ihe recollection lhat a paratrooper make arrests. They had been under intense provocation for many months. Was this the or- casion when they saw the "enemy" clearer than ever be- fore? But did they really have to shoot? What if they had arrested had given his life shielding a Catholic mother from a bomh. Amid the The demonstration was ille- These questions remain unan gal.
