The study, commissioned by the Arctic In.slilute of North America and made puhlic Tues- day, said implementation of the proposed program with no prov- ision for northern input "can have a devastating and quite probable irreversible impact UN the people of the North." The report says the real com- munications needs of norther- ners include community radio stations, regional and local programming for radio and TV, corrjiiunily videotape projects, improved telephone communica- tions and educational television. Northern groups, such as In- dian brotherhoods, the Eskimo group Imu't Taparisal, the Com- mittee for Original People's En- tillement, already in the com- munications field, must be deeply involved in the program. The communica'tions satellite, Anik, is to be launched late Ihis year and go into operation early in 197.1. Eric ICicrans, then communi- cations minister, said wlien pil- oting the legislation through Commons that bringing live tel- evision to the northern parts ol seven provinces as well as the Yukon and Northwest Territa rich wa-; perhaps the most im- portant reason for the satellite. The study group, which in- cluded five native northerners in its 10 members, .said the mil- lions of dollars to be spent prov- iding live television in northern areas is not justified. It says Lhn main advantages claimed for live television com- pared with Uie pre-recorded Chief Dan George chosen o for title role in play VANCOUVER (CP) Chief Dan G eorge has been chosen for the title role in the Shake- speare drama King Lear, the Playhouse Theatre Company announced today. The play will open the the- atre's 1972-73 season Oct. 12. New disease aaeiit found NEW YORK (AP) A plant virologist for the agriculture de- partment reported here that he has found a new infectious agent in addition to viruses and bacteria. Dr. Thcodor 0. Dicner, has named the new agent a "vi- rcid." Diener said the new agent, which he described as a "novel type of pathogen" or disease- causing agent, is about 80 times smaller than the smallest known virus. Conventional viruses, which may be involved in a wide range of human diseases from cancer to heart disease, consists of a core of nucleic acid, called either DNA or UNA, surrounded by a coat of protein. Dr. Di- ener's viroid is pure, free-float- ing RNA, a prolcin ccat. Dr. Diener reported his work fo a virclogy symposium here. He said in an interview that ho has "partially isolated the agent" and has determined its existence through complex tests. The agent causes a plant dis- ease known as potato spindle tuber disease, which causes po- tatoes to grow long and spindly and, in addition, makes Ihcir taste unpleasant. Viroids, Deiner said, could conceivably be the agents re- sponsible for human diseases previously believed to be caused by viruses, but from which sci- entists have been unable to iso- late a virus. One of these diseases, he said. could multiple sclerosis, a neurological disease. Chief Dan George, 73, From Burrard Indian Reserve north of Vancouver is best known for his supporting role in the film Little Big Man. for which he was nominated for an Academy j Award. Lust Oclober he was invested as a member of the Order of Canada by Gov.-Gen. Roland Michener for his con- tribution1 to the arts. In ICing Lear, he will play an aging king whose kingdom is lorn by sprite as lie seeks In divide it among liis daughters. The role is considered one of Shakespeare's most difficult. The theatre company also an- nounced it has scheduled a new play by Vancouver's Eric Ni- col, Pillar Of Sand, a satire about Gth century hippies. And the popular family pro- duction, Treasure Island, star- ring Graeme Campbell, will re- turn to Ihs playhouse stage next Frontier Coverage Package now available in many of the com- munities are daily news, live sports shows and longer pro- gram hours. It points out that daily news now i.s available through radio in all but three locations to be served by Aiuk. A CBC poll showed that delayed spurts as hac'kcy gamjs screened a week caus- ing little discontent. And the frontier package could be easily incrcased by broadcasting longer tapes. Therefore, says the report, 'tho northcm dissemination of ive TV scums to be of doubtful validity as one of the main objectives of a million satellite communications pru- jecl." The study's main rcconrmen- dalions: hinds lo help northern cuimiiuniculioii.s groups implement tbtir pro- grams. of radio and TV centres where northerner.-i can produce program material of special meaning lo nortl.'jr- ners. of a northern com- munications information ccntri; either at a university or with the Arclic Institute.

He told the legislature the province should set up its own pension plan, allowing B.C. residents to retire at 55 rather Mian 05. This would have the j double barrelled effect of tak- ing some persons off welfare and allowing olhers lo retire when they could still enjoy "their golden years."
