28 Guessing game 011 environment By HAROLD MORRISON STOCKHOLM (CP) One of the great guessing games of the United Nations Environment conference is to figure what the total cost would be if all the UN anti-pollution proposals are adopted. Canadian Environment Minis- ter Jack Davis took a stab at it Wednesday and came up with the figure of billion a year partly spent by participating countries at home and partly spent abroad. Of that total, he said at a news conference, annual Cana- dian costs would be about million. Canada "is prepared to sup- port the UN action plan" Davis said when asked whether Can- ada is prepared to pay that much. He estimated that not all of the proposed Canadian financial commitment would be "new Some of the proposals in the UN action plan already exist in one form or another in Canada and money is being spent on these programs. ONE-THIRD NEW MONEY He concluded that about one- third of the million would be "new sums that would have to be allo- cated. He added that this percentage would rise in time. The estimated Canadian an- nual costs is equivalent to the proposed annual budget of the planned UN environment agency. But, of course, the two figures are separate. Canada is ready to contribute between mil- lion a year to the UN environ- ment agency. The United States will pay million and other UN members will make their own contributions to ensure that the new agency, once approved, gets its full annual budget. Eventually as countries, in- cluding the U.S., gain confi- dence in the new organization and approve of its anli-pollution operations, total annual alloca- tions are likely to increase. Maurice Strong of Canada, confarence secretary-general and the man most likely to head the new agency, already has in- dicated that while the proposed budget would not be enough, the new organization undoubtedly would proceed slowly at first with its expenditures and its op- erations gaining momentum as it expanded its work. Canada's environment minis- ter, a strong supporter of the UN action plan, said things are going 'very well" for Canada. "Indeed, we have not suffered any setbacks so ho added. H o w ever, Eymard Corbin, Davis's parliamentary secre- tary, said there appears to be no hope that delegates will ap- prove an ocean dumping con- vention at ttiis conference. A working group named to draft the agreement failed to agree on terms, he said. Another adviser said dele- gates from several countries now are preparing draft articles of agreement which may be signed at a world ocean dump- ing conference which Britain has offered to hold in London. What Canada hopes to see in such a final agreement is the recognized authority for all countries whose coastal regions arc- involved to take action against ships and tankers which cause contamination througl dumping at sea.

Opposition raps government on Polish immigrants death By PAUL JACKSON OTTAWA Calgary North iMP Eldon Wcolliams suggested in the House of Commons Wednesday that the federal gov- ernment should pay more atten- tion to keeping "hoodlums and gangsters" out of Canada rather thau concentrating on deporting perhaps insignificant persons. Mr. Woolliams, Progressive Conservative justice critic, made the comment during heated questioning by a number of opposition lIPs following the suicide of a Polish woman who had been ordered deported from Canada. The Calgary MP pointed ou! that James Earl Roy, convicted assassin of Martin Luther King; Arthur Bremer, accused of shooting Alabama governor George Wallace, U.S. revolu- tionary leader Jerry Rubin, and Kozo Okamoto, held by Israeli officials in the Tel Aviv airport massacre, had all managed to enter Canada easily. Mr. Woolliams wanted to know whether the government intended setting up a screening agency to keep these "and many other hoodlums and gangsters" out of Canada. He said the situation was ex- tremely serious and important since there are about ap- plications pending before the immigration appeal board, in- cluding many by "deserving people" who can't get their cases heard. Justice Minister Otlo Lang, who is no longer directly in- volved in immigration cases, declined to answer Mr. Wool- Hams' questions. He said he was "sure" Manpower and Im- migration Minister Bryce Mack- asey would be glad to tell the Calgary HIP what precautions are taken governing entry into Canada. Mr. Woolliams later turned to Prime Minister Trudeau. He asked him whether there was anything on the government's "tracing board" that would change the rules governing im- migration of "deserving" per- sons into Canada. The prime minister had ear- lier (old Gordon Fairweatlicr Fundy-Royal) that (he government lias been consider- ing for some time changes in legislation to meet some of the problems which have built up in the appeal backlog. But in reply to Mr. Wool- liams, Mr. Trudenu would only say that he would check the matter out and stressed that ho did not know' to what "board" the Calgary MP was referring when he talked about a new leg- islation "tracing board." M r. Woolliams, obviously using d metaphor and meaning a drafting board on which possi- ble new legislation might be outlined, again asked whether immigration policy might be changed so that undesirables be kept out of Canada and deserv- ing persons allowed to stay. The prime minister said he was not "familiar" with the facts of the matter. He said ho would ask Mr. Mackasey to ex- amine the Calgary MP's ques- tion. New RSC head ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) Dr. J. Tuzo Wilson, principal of Erindale College of the Univer- sity of Toronto, Wednesday was chosen president of the Royal Society of Canada, succeeding Dr. H. E. Duckworth of Winni- peg. Dr. Wilson became known in the early I960's for what was then a new theory of continental drift and the life cycle of ocean basins. The society's 90th annual meeting ended here Wednesday. Stanley Haidasz dale) originally brought the matter up in the Commons on Wednesday, Obviously shocked about the 35-year-old Polish mother's suicide on the eve of her deportation, he tried to put a motion before the House call- ing for a new investigation into immigration policies. Some MPs refused to give him the unanmous consent he needed to put his motion before the Com- mons. Mr. Haidasz had spoken of the "tragedies" and "hardships" imposed on people by regula- tions. W. B. Neshilt (PC-Oxford) had only one comment to make on the matter. To some desk thumping applause, he asked: 'Would the prime minister con- sider getting rid of some of the members of the immigration appeal board" The question was out of cruder and there was no reply. Mr. Fairweather had sug- gested that as a matter of ur- gency the government should seek the assistance of leaders ol Canadian ethnic communities to help evolve a speedy and equi- table technique for solving the immigration appeal backlog problem. The prime minister said that in "a very informal way" the immigration minister had been in consultation with various eth- nic groups across the country. Les Benjamin gina-Lake Centre) urged that the prime minister and Immi- gration Minister Mackasey con- sider asking the immigration hoard to take another look at a deportation order for an Asian, Tuan Vu, who he said would face execution if deported to South Viet Nam. Mr. Trudeau said he had no knowledge of this particular case. However, he assured Mr. Benjamin that he would look into the matter.

Wirepholo) Lamg cancer on increase Smokers doomed to death SASKATOON (CP) Almost Canadians of the nearly six million who are smoking today will die from a disease resulting from the 50 billion cig- arettes they smoke each year, Dr. V, L. Matthews said here. Dr. Matthews, president of the Canadian Public Health As- sociation, told the opening ses- sion of a national seminar on smoking and health that "the Queen honors Pearson By CY FOX LONDON Lester Pearson today was invested with the Order of Merit by the Queen in what the Canadian statesman later described as a "very informal" audience at Buckingham Palace. "I expressed my sense of honor and privilege and then my wife and I just had a good chat with the former prime minister said after his 30-minule meeting with the monarch. Pearson, looking chipper and shaking hands with reporters and two Canadian tourists who happened to be passing the pal- ace after the ceremony, proudly displayed the eight-point cross of red and blue enamel with the words "for merit" inscribed on it. A ribbon of garter blue and crimson completes the insignia which signifies his membership in a highly exclusive order insti- tuted by King Edward VII in 1902. The order has only 24 mem- bers and includes sculptor Henry Moore, composer Sir Wil- liam Walton and a number of distinguished scientists. Pearson's inclusion was first announced in May, 1971, but this is his first visit to London since then and thus the first opportu- nity to receive the insignia from the Queen. He went from the palace to luncheon with the Queen Mother not before Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Merrell of Ottawa stopped him for a handshake and a few words of additional congratula- tion. The former Canadian leader, who is giving lectures during his visit, said he considers his Order of Canada, his election as Liberal leader and then as prime minister, and his Nobel Peace Prize as all covering sig- nificant aspects of his political career. One telephone number sought for fire calls SWIFT CURRENT, Sask. (CP) A resolution recom- mending one telephone number across Canada for emergency fire calls was passed Wednes- day at the annual convention of t h e Saskatchewan Association of Fire Chiefs. Albert Puhl of Melville was elected president of the associa- tion for a one-year term suc- ceeding Arthur Dale o[ Swift Current, Dune Farmer, deputy fire chief at Saskatoon, was elected First vice-president and George Slater of Prince Albert was elected secretary-treasurer. period of uncertainty is over." "While science will continue to probe the reason why, there is no longer any doubt that cig- arette smoking is a direct threat to UK user's health." DEATHS UP Deaths from lur.g cancer are increasing so fast, they now are "second to heart attacks as a cause of death for men aged 45 LO years." "We know the rising number of deaths from heart disease among men and women in the prime of life is related to cig- arette smoking and that the toll from bronchitis and em- physema can be traced to smok- ing as Dr. Matthews said. We know mothers who smoke have smaller babies and more of them are born pre- maturely and we know tobacco smoke is a significant contri- butor to the problem of aller- gies." The seminar proceeded the annual meeting of the associa- tion. Dr. W. F. Forbes, of the Uni- versity of Waterloo, said "peo- ple feel if cigarette smoking is really as bad as everybody says it is, the government ought to take effective action." TAR CONTENT Dr. Forbes said the tar con- tent of Canadian cigarettes ranges from eight lo 30 milli- grams. Michael Petrschuk, chief counsel of the United States' senate commerce committee, told the 200 people attending, that U.S. manufacturers arc moving towards lowered tar contents.
