Canada's ambassador to Austria and representative on the IAEA board of governors. Fissile materials are the nu- clear products needed in Atomic bombs- Mr. Beesley added that "the possible benefits of nuclear devices at some stage in the future, in certain economic areas, does not outweight the clear and immediate perils entailed by an unrestricted proliferation of nuclear explosive capability."

Almost all nine groups which appeared before the legislature education committee demanded that Bill 22 be withdrawn or drastically overhauled. There were impassioned cries from some English- speaking groups that the bill threatened their fundamental rights, equally vehement retorts from French-speaking delegations that it would lead only to further as similation and a suggestion from one man that matters might be settled better if repre- sentatives of both linguistic groups got together over a beer. Through it all. Education Minister Francois Cloutier contented himself with comments that submissions were "sincere" or "touching" and gave little in the way of clarification to groups trying to divine how the legislation would actually make French the province's sole official language. The minister made it clear at the outset that the government would not compromise on the principle of the bill and that he did not consider the committee hearings the proper place for debate on the legislation. Parti Quebecois committee members faulted this attitude as arrogant and contemptuous of the public. And PQ Opposition Leader Jacques-Yvan Morin said the minister should refrain from commenting on the quality of groups submitting briefs to the committee. The groups ranged from English-speaking Roman Catholic parents to the Quebec Chamber of Commerce The English-speaking groups were concerned mainly that the protection of minority rights are not clearly- spelled "out in the legislation and that Bill 22 denies parents unqualified freedom to choose the language of instruction for their children.
