The meteorological office at Bracknell, Berkshire, puts the tinger on the severe winter in northeast Canada which re- sulted in heavy formations of ce off Davis Strait and Lab- rador. The spring thaw broke loose an exceptionally large num- 3er of icebergs and strong northerly winds helped propel them much farther south than usual. Weather forecasters nere blame these bergs for cooling down the North Atlan- and bringing a chilly stream of air to Britain. The bergs are also threaten- ing shipping. On a recent voy- age to New York the Queen Elizabeth 2 changed course to avoid them. But the meteorological of- fice had some cold comfort.

The report is a confidential, internal document, said lha commissioner. But he quoted several paragraphs which ho made public on a Rcgina radio station. 'CAN TAKE PHIDE' The report said in part: "The HCMP is an lion in which all Canadians can take pride. It is a well-disci- plined and thorough police force whose members display a sense of duty and loyalty to an extent rarely found anywhere. "There is no organizational crisis at headquarters nor is it functionally ineffective. The RCMP has outstanding and ex- tra-ordinary assets in the loy- alty, dedication and integrity ot its recognized Internationally. "In so far as we are compe. tent to judge, the police aspects of the RCMP's operations and in relation to our reading op the subject, it Is our impres- sion that these are carried out, There was no suggestion, said the report, that the HCMP was a troubled organization.
