Paper probe urged THUNDER BAY, Ont. (CP) City council has asked for federal and provincial inquiries into the publishing practices of Thunder Bay's two daily news- papers, The News-Chronicle and The Times-Journal. A resolution seeking the in- quiries was adopted 8 to 4 by council Tuesday night. A copy also will go to Senator Keith chairman of the Senate committee on mass communica- tions. The resolution asks whether the papers, both owned by Thomson Newspapers Ltd., are violating "any legislation in- volved, or governmental pol- icy." At issue is the fact that the papers have continued to con- fine their general .circulation to the areas they covered before the twin Lakehead cities were amalgamated to form Thunder Bay. The News-Chronicle circulates in Pott Arthur Ward and The Times-Journal in Fort William ward, which.have approxi- mately equal shares of Thunder Bay's population. The cities, plus areas of some neigh- boring municipalities, were amalgamated Jan. COSTS ADVERTISERS MORE The resolution by Aldermen Edgar Laprade and Charles Johnston said the newspapers' practice compels advertisers to use both papers "at substantial additional cost." It added they both use the same wire service and "fail to provide decentral- ized or adequate news cover- age." Dividend! By THE CANADIAN PRESS Northwestern Utilities Ltd., four per cent pfd.
