BASED ON ASSETS Mr. Pepin said the measure of foreign ownership is based on the value of assets. said 1968 figures should be available from Dominion Bu- reau of Statistics by Nov. 30, with 1969 figures coming a year later. The figures were based on re- turns under the Corporations and Labor Unions Returns Act and corporation income tax re- turns. The delay in compiling figures arose from the fact that all re- turns for any given year had to be on hand to "establish the in- tercorporate relationships re- quired to estimate non-resident ownership." It took about a year to get the returns and an- other year to process them. The report was tabled in the Commons Wednesday. SUMMER YOUTH ACTIVITIES OFFERED BY THE PARKS AND RECREATION DEPT.

Almost h a 1 f w a y through Expo's six-month run, which opened March 15 and ends Sept. 13, this amusement section, Ex- poland, is proving to be one of the fair's few serious financial weak points. Some pavilions and food concessions there face seri- ous money troubles, apparently because there is just too much to do in Expo's main section. Generally, the fair is doing fine, with persons vis- iting it up until Wednesday- equivalent to one-quarter of Ja- pan's population. Sunday, the exposition, the first world's fair in Asia, reaches the halfway point, at which juncture Expo fi? in Montreal recorded an attend- ance figure of The predominantly-Japanese crowds patiently stand in long lines to see everything from a moon rock brought back to earth by United States astro- nauts to exhibits of Chinese cul- ture, the source of much of Ja- pan's culture. TRY OUT ENGLISH Foreign visitors often find themselves surrounded by school children, collecting auto- graphs, whose English seems limited to "Sign, please." But hostesses in some of the Asian pavilions find that these same youngster's love to try out their English on them, apparently fig- uring Asians aren't as likely to notice their mistakes as Canadi- ans, Britons and Americans arc. At first, some observers at Expo said the Japanese also "collected" pavilions, rather than really looking at them. The youngsters still are careful to "have notebooks stamped at the pavilions they visit, but the rushing through pavilions in a mad effoit to see everything has stopped, Patrick Reid, Can- ada's commissioner-general for Expo '70, said. Some of the problems pre- dicted at the beginning, Reid added, have not happened. With new roads and rail lines set up for the fair, transporta- tion is faster now than before Expo opened in March, he said, and no serious accommodations problems have been reported. Although only three-quarters the size of the grounds for Expo 67, the 815 acres at Expo '70 are set up to handle huge crowds, Reid said. The most visitors they have handled in one day were the who turned out on a bright Sunday, June 7. A good weekday brings out Besides Expoland, the popular Check River For Mercury Contamination EDMONTON (CP) govern ment biologists said Thursday they are "concerned" about the possibility of mercury contamination in the North Sas- katchewan River. Fish from the river in the Ed- monton area had been sent to the Freshwater Institute in Winnipeg fof testing. A report on them was expected in about a week. Dr. S. B. Smith, director of fish and wildlife for the pro- vincial department of lands and forests, said government biol- ogists now are taking a new sc- ries of water samples from (lie river. The biologists also hope to locate the source of the mer- cury, if there is contamination. music and drama entertainment programs at the Expo Hall, cen- trally located on the Expo mcrcial success, mainly be- cause there is plenty of enter- tainment to be seen, said Reid. grounds, have not been a com- j adding: "It's a feast." Appeal System EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta Social Development De- partment is setting up a sys- tem so persons can appeal gainst departmental decisions or policies. Letters have gone out to 10 Formn Idea Rejected By Colborne EDMONTON (CP) Munici- pal Affairs Minister Fred Col- borne of Alberta said Thursday he can see no advantage in a federal provincial municipal forum proposed by Robert An- dras, federal minister respon- sible for housing. Mr. Colborne says Alberta be- lieves the present constitutional framework does not provide an adequate place for municipali- ties, but a forum on urban af- fairs as proposed by Mr. Andras is not the answer. He said until municipalities are given areas of their own sovereignty, just as the federal and provincial governments have under the constitution, there will be no reason for them to be represented at that levc.. Municipal governments are heavily dependent financially on provincial governments. Un- til they have constitutional power in fields of their own "it would not be realistic" to give them a status they don't have, Mr. Colborne said. Plumbers Reject Bid EEGINA {CP) Plumbers and pipefitters, voting in four Saskatchewan cities, have turned down a proposed settle- ment of the two-month-old strike that has tied up con- struction. Union members held meet- ings Thursday night In Regina, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw and Prince Albert and in each city decided against accepting a series of settlement proposals. The proposals, worked out by negotiators, have not been made public. The union mem- bers struck to support demands for a 17-per-cent raise over the previous scale of an hour for journeymen. provincial organizations asking for names of persons to serve on a centra! il-man citizens committee that will work out of Edmonton. The llth member is to be a professional person suggested by Ray Speaker, the Social Development Minister. Regional committees are pro- posed to be established later in Lethbridge, Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, Grande Prairie and Medicine Hat. An appeal would be handled first on a regional administra- tion basis. If the person is not satisfied, he could take his case to the regional committee. If he is still not satisfied, he could take it to the central commit- tee. This would be the final level of appeal, except for ac- cess to the Ombudsman. The committees also would suggest changes in social devel- opment policy. In addition, the committees could hear pro- posals from other organizations and i n d i v i d u a 1 s on policy change. Development of the concept is expected to move slowly at the start, officials said. Appeal activity likely will start in the public assistance operations of the social develop- ment department, then spread to child welfare and other de- partments.
