Street Journal praise Canada editorially for its decision to let the Canadian dollar find its own level on world exchange mar- kets. The Times terms the move "a wise one for a country troubled by both inflation and unemploy- ment" and says it should have "important educational value Howe Soimd Reopened VANCOUVER (CP1 The upper reaches of Howe Sound, closed to fishing in April be- cause of mercury pollution, re- opened for salmon fishing at midnight Wednesday, fisheries minister Jack Davis said today. However, he said closure of the area. 30 miles north of here, will continue for shellfish and gronndfish and the line be extended a further 12 miles to the tin of Anvil Island. "Salmon got a clean bill of health but worrisome mercury counts on crab, shrimps and groundfish Mill keep an extend- ed area closed to these resi- dent stocks." Mr. Davis said in a statement. The minister had ordered the closure of the top six miles of the 30 mile salt water sound after traces of mercury were found in water leaving the F. M. 0. Chemicals Ltd. plant at Squamish. at the head of the Sound. The closure affected only sports fishermen, since the en- tire Sound is out of bounds to commercial boats. Salm o n and dolly varden char are the main catches. In the latest tests the high- est mercury reading on adult salmon was .37 parts in 1.000.- nop, he said. Permissible leve! by Canadian health standards is .5 parts. Crabs near the F.M.C. plant had readings as high as II.92 parts and a low of 1.46 further south in the new closure area. The Rroundfish ran from 1 part to 1.4. The company, which is clos- ed because of the west coast towboat strike, uses mercury in production of chlorine find caus- tic soda for the milp and paper industry. Earlier, Mr. Davis said the company is faking measures to reduce the mercury content of effluent from the plant by treat- ment with sulphide, construc- tion of a new and larger set- tling pond, and installation of tanks or a re-cyclina program..

The longer the Canadian experiment lasts, the better." The Journal says Canada is "simply being and adds: "Unlike Canada most na- tiors have been in no rush to re- turn to reality. One reason is that, in most cases, the out-of- line currencies have been over- valued, not undervalued as in the case of Canada. The fixed- rate system has helped make it almost a matter of national pride to hold currencies at their stated value.... "C a n a d a's move naturally will call attention to other cur- rencies, and speculators rr.ay decide that some of them really aren't worth as much as the na- tions say they are.... "This nation and others, in sum, have no reason to casti- gate the Canadians. What they do have is fresh reason to re- flect on themselves."
