Gunning, head of the Uni- versity of Alberta's chemistry department, said Wednesday ihat some current talk about pollution represents "rampant ignorance." Dr. Gunning said in an inter- view he wonders who is re- sponsible for creating the fear ;hat mercury is dangerous to mman health. "I know people working with wavy mercury compounds in ndustry who have five times the amount of mercury nor- mally regarded as safe in urine, and they have had no problems and they have lived to a ripe old age." The comments followed a warning issued Monday by the provincial government that fish caught in the North Saskatche- wan Rivsr downstream from Edmonton were unfit for human consumption because of high levels of mercury. Provincial offic ials are studying the university as a potential source of mercury contamination in fish, said to be several times the recom- mended maximum of .5 (.5) parts per million. Dr. Gunning, department chairman, said he doubts his department is responsible foi any mercury contamination: "it is very expensive." He said mercury compounds have numerous medical uses They are in material used tut he premised to convey the rpinions to his cabinet col- leagues "who now have to dig- est the report and decide what to do." The attorneys-general and Mr. Turner resume their meet- ings today. The Saskatchewan and Prince Edward Island ministers had harsh words Wednesday for ttw report's views, and other minis- ters were reported to have told Mr. Turner of their opposition to changes in current drug laws. .The Le Dain commission re- port was tabled in the Commons June 19 and recommended that no prison terms be imposed for possession of any drug and that maximum fines be no more than for possession. The federal government rejected these recommendations. Other recommendations wera that marijuana be shifted front the Narcotics Cntrol Act, where penalties are stiff for possession and trafficking, to the Food and Drug Act, where possession could be dealt with more leniently.
