I OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities urged Monday that a delegation of municipal representatives be allowed to attend a national bousing con- ference in Ottawa Jan. 22-23.

Mr. Newman said in a tele- gram that since it will require the co-operation of the cities and towns of Canada to imple- ment a housing program, it is essential that local government be given the opportunity to par- ticipate in the design of the community-development pro- gram. He said H is priposed fiat national municipal delegation of i25 representatives attend the I meeting along with the cial and federal representa- tives.
