"It is one of the means of ac- tion we can he told a news conference. He added that in Ms meetings with industrialists he had yet to discover any hostility to the government's intention to make French the province's working language. "On the contrary, the com- pany presidents I have met all regard this objective favorably and realize it is to the advan- tage of all sector's of the Quebec he said. "Tim only practical objection that was posed involved the managerial level of business. A policy of a working French lan- guage should not block the mo- bility of manpower in certain national or multi-national indus- tries. "We recognized the basis of this argument, and the govern- ment is not putting itself in the position of telling companies not to proceed with certain person- nel transfers from Toronto, Vancouver or New York to Montreal." Mr. Bourassa said his govern- ment is favorable to the crea tion of a tri-parlite organization involving Quebec, Ontario and the federal government and dealing with the development of the national capital region. He said any such agreement to develop both banks of the Ot- tawa River would have to re- spect the territorial integrity of Quebec. Mr. Bourassa said the Quebec government has received notice from the federal government that the next constitutional con- ference is set for Sept. 14-16 in Ottawa. But there were no plans for a special meeting between him and Prime Minister Tru- deau. Mr. Boui'assa hinted his gov- ernment might be willing to in- stitute a preferential price pol- icy such as paying 10 per cent more to firms which respected French as the "working lan- guage. "That is a possibility that can I be he said. He pointed out that some go ernment Hydr Quebec and several scha boards already pay more Eavor companies eatablished Quebec and to boost emplo ment.

But they were not capable of bringing to Cana- dians any feeling of reconcilia- tion. The Opposition leader also criticized the Liberal govern- ment over policies to contain in- flation which have resulted in "what I believe is the highest unemployment rate in any de- veloped country." Mr. Stanfield flew to Brussels with his and two aides. He will visit West Germany, France, Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union and Britain. During his European tour, he will-meet with senior officials of the North Atlantic Treaty Or- ganization and the European Common Market.

CALGARY (CP) The Al- berta Supreme Court will be asked to direct Magistrate L. A. Juslason to hear a speeding charge he quashed last Tues- day in a judgment which de- clared the province's driver de- merit system invalid. Prosecutor Paul Chrumka said Friday the attorney-gen- eral's department in Edmonton has instructed him to seek a writ of mandamus in the case. He said the basis for the writ is that the charge should not have been quashed. Mr. Chrumka said he ex- pects to have the matter heard within two wesks. 'NOT ENACTED" Magistrate Justason said in a mitten judgment that legis- lation for the demerit system is not enacted in the Alberta Highway Traffic Act and the lieutenant-governor did not havs the power to enact the law.. The magistrate made Hie ruling in a case in wMch Betty Coldbeck of Calgary was charged with speeding. The system went into effect last April 1. The act says that a person convicted of speeding can receive up to six demerit points. A driver with 15 de- merits has his licence suspend- ed for one month. Attorney-General Edgar Ger- hart said Thursday Magistrate Justason had n o jurisdiction to make the decision. He said statements .concerning the vali- dity, of the system wer'e irrele- vant to the charge being -heard. Mr. Gerhart said he has in- structed the department of highways to continue use of the demerit points. "NONSENSE" Highways Minister Gordon Taylor said the judgment was nonsense. But lawyer Bill Wuttunee, who represented Miss Coldbeck in the casa, said the Law So- ciety of Alberta should pass a motion of censure against (Tne attorney-gener'al for his attack on the magistrate's judgment.
