M Redistribution bill debate continues By DAVE BLAHOE OTTAWA (CP) Everything takes time in the Commons- even doing nothing. MPs proved that Monday when they put in their third full day of debate on legislation that would, in effect, give them 18 months to side- step the dicey question of elec- toral redistribution. Introduced last week, the bill would suspend the almost-com- pleted work of 10 separate elec- toral boundaries one for each province. It would give members until 1974 to come up with a revised formula for altering the boundaries of Commons ridings to take chang- ing population patterns into ac- count. While generally supported by 38 persons killed by avalanche MEXCALA, Mexico (AP) At least 38 persons have died in a flood-spawned avalanche on the north shore of Mexico's largest lake. Four others were drowned Monday after a storm in the nearby state of Guanajuato. These raised the confirmed total of weather-related deaths in Mexico in the last week to 62. The dead in Guanajuato were a woman and three children drowned near Leon. 150 miles north of Mexico City, when a flooded river swept away their home. arly Sunday, a mountain. cloudburst sent tons of rock and mud down a mountainside to Mil 21 persons and injure 23 others in Mexcala. on the north shore of 10-mile-wide Lake Chapala. Two were missing. other persons Fifteen miles along the shore at San Pedro Itzacan, 17 others were killed by another landslide unleashed by the same storm. Mayor Salvador Flores of Mexcala estimated that more than 20 per cent of the town of persons was destroyed, and officials estimated at least 330 persons were homeless in the town. all parties, the bill has yet to receive second reading, al- though' this could come some- time today. The bill will then go to committee for detailed study before coming back for final passage. In effect, the legislation repu- diates the existing redistribu- tion'formula, which gives inde- pendent commissions the re- sponsibility for revising elec- toral boundaries every 10 years in line with new census figures. The last census was taken in 1971. ALMOST DONE The various commissions put in nearly a full year of work and spent about million re- vising the boundaries of the 264 ridings now represented in Par- liament. Their work was vir- tually finished by the time the present bill was introduced. The commissions were given the total number of MPs for each province, based on the 1971 population, and told to re- vise constituency boundaries ac- cordingly. Five bec, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Manitoba and Sas- have lost seats and the other five gained. Reaction was severe, espe- cially from provinces that would lose seats. The govern- ment finally agreed to put the whole question off while an at- tem is made to come up with a new formula. The decision probably means that: next election will be held with the electoral bound- aries that now exist, with repre- sentation weighted in favor of thinly-populated rural areas. membership will be enlarged, possibly to 300 members or more. safeguards against sharply declining rural repre- sentation will be strengthened even further, but the ratio will be fairer because of increased urban representation. will be several years be- fore any boundary changes oc- cur since the Dec. 31, 1974, deadline is for devising a new formula rather than making ac- tual alterations.

The aldermen said they re- signed because of pressure and harassment by the Yukon ter- ritorial government executive committee.

MONTREAL (CP Nicola lorio says there was nothing illegal discussed at meeting attended by the late Pierre Lap- orte, Frank D'Asti and Mr. Di [orio two weeks before the 1970 Quebec provincial election. "I know, because I was there md 'm still alive to talk about he Mr. Di lorio said n an interview Sunday. 'As a matter of fact, the whole thing is a tempest in a teacup." The April 16, 1970 meeting came to light last week when Robert Bums, Parti Quebecois SS leader in the national as- sembly, told the legislature there was a police report on a meeting between a Quebec cabi- net minister and two men re- rated to be important figures in Montreal's underworld. Justice Minister Jerome Cho- quette told the legislature that tne cabinet minister concerned was now dead and Mr. Burns told reporters outside the house that ths minister was Pierre Laporte, who -was the member for Chambly riding at the time. STAYED 10 MINUTES Mr. Di lorio said Mr. Lap- one, who was kidnapped and murdered by terrorists in Octo- ber, 1970, was only at the meet- ing for 10 minutes. "I had never seen him before and I never saw him again. "I believe that the only rea- son Mr. Laporte showed that meeting was to impress us with the importance of support for the Liberal candi- date." Mr. Di lorio testified earlier this year at the first part of ths Quebec Police Commission in- quiry into organized crime deal- ing with gambling. "Mr. Laporte never asked for anything and we didn't promise him anything Mr. Di lirio said. "It was simply a case (bat, as the proprietor of a licensed es- tablishment, I was expected to contribute to the party's cam- paign, like I was expected to contribute to the Union Nation- ale candidate's campaign'."
