The modifications were ordered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Thursday when it learned General Motors had incorrectly listed the weights of the automobiles. The EPA determines the amount of air pollutants allowed for cars by weight categories. A General Motors spokesman said the mistake had been inadvertent and car owners would not be charged for the modifications QUEBEC (CP) - Canada's private broadcasters and police have moved to improve their "effective working relationship," but revelation of this Thursday prompted expressions of concern that journalistic freedom might be threatened, or seen to be threatened. A Quebec legislature committee on freedom of the press was given copies of a set of "objectives, principles and operating guidelines" prepared by a joint committee of the Association of Chiefs of Police of Canada and the Canadian Association of Broadcasters (CAB), representing owners and operators of private radio and television stations. The legislature committee was told by a Quebec City broadcast executive the guidelines were drawn up after the CAB and various police forces studied police and news media problems encountered during the Quebec kidnap crisis of October, 1970. The CAB, in a statement released in Ottawa later- Thursday along with a copy of the guidelines, said its board of directors and the police chiefs association had "end'orsed" the document and it had been sent to all members and regional groups within the CAB for "study, discussion and comment." NOT COMPREHENSIVE A footnote to the guidelines says they are admittedly broad and "not intended to be comprehensive." Further guidelines and statements of "ethics" may be discussed by the joint committee, which remains in existence. Quebec Communications Minister Jean-Paul L'AUier said the document was open to "misinterpretation." Two days earlier, when the legislature committee was given first word of it by Aurelle Pelletier, vice-president of tele-Capitale, which operates television station CFCM-TV here, Mr. L'AUier had cautioned against "establishing police control on information during unforeseeable and trying times." Among other things, the guidelines include a statement that "because of investigative and legal requirements, the police must have the right to make the decisibn on release of news for publication." This was one of several sections cited by Claude Beau-champ, president of the Federation Professionnelle des Jour-nalistes du Quebec, as "unacceptable." "The right of the journalist as a witness must be conserved in times of crisis." he told the leg- islature committee. He also objected to a call for "day-to-day advance planning," by police and the media in certain circumstances, as well as a provision for "disciplinary action against those employees who knowingly or consistently fail to operate within the principles and ethics agreed to by the national joint committee." Mr. Pelletier linked preparation of the guidelines to events such as those in Quebec in 1970. The CAB statement mentions "crisis situations" and the document refers to the "handling of police and, particularly, crime news." The CAB added: "Neither party seeks any form of restriction on the legitimate activities of the other." Mr. Pelletier told the committee there was no implied attempt to "direct" news presentation and he should not have used the term in remarks earlier this week. He was quoted Tuesday as saying there was a plan to "direct newsmen in their method of informing the public so that news may- be presented in a more measured and realistic way, avoiding sensationalism as much as possible." There was no comment Thursday from the police chiefs association. In Toronto, Syd Brown, president of the Canadian Police Association, said he could think of no situation in which the working policeman would need such a document.
