The Canadians, due to arrive in Vancouver this afternoon, landed in Britain last month on a plane chartered from Edmon- ton-based Wardair.

"They concluded that (here was a substantial majority of the passengers, they believed was ineligible to travel on the Gaunt said.

Advancing slocks were ahead VANCOUVER (CP) The board ot directors of Kaiser Re- sources Ltd., announced Tues- day thai several officers and employees ot the company who profiled from trading in com- pany stack through KKL Invest- ments Ltd. have voluntarily agreed to pay their profits to Kaiser Resources. At the same time, the board released a report prepared by a special committee established by Kaiser Resources last monlh after newspapers reported insi- der trading. Tho committee, composed of senior board members, said in its report: "We believe that as a result of Ihe undisclosed transactions their belated exposure has caused considerable hnrm to the image of the company and that it i.s not desirable in the circum- stances that any iasider partici- pant should emerge with a profit on his share dealings. "We therefore recommend that such profits be paid volun- tarily to the company by such insider participants even though from our investigation and in the opinion of our special coun- sel there is no liability to do so." Hie board, whicli said it had adopted Ihe committee's repokt in full, said "Ihe insider partici pajits in KRL. Investments Ltd who realized a profit have nrl- vised us that they voluntarily agreo to implement the commit tec's recommendation by pay- ing their profits to Kaiser He- sources." KRL is an investment firm registered in Halifax and a sidiary of Kaiser Resources The committee report said it "was formed for the purpose of enabling certain employees and officers of Ihe company to par- licipate as share purchasers in the 1969 Canadian share offer- ing, notwithstanding lhat these individuals were U.S. residents and thai, the issue had not been qualified for sale in the U.S." The committee noted that the decision to permit the participa- tion was mad" by the senior j management of the company. j In January, 3C executives of Uie parent Kaiser Sleel Corp. of Oakland, Calif., confirmed they had purchased stock in Kaiser Resources through KRL. The shares began a decline after a large number of shares bought through KRL were sold at a substantial profit. billion price lag placed on proposed gas pipeline ATTACKS FEDERAL GOV- KKNMK.VT British Colum- bia general LrsLie Peterson said the province will challenge Ihe federal gov- ernment's equalization pay- ments program in conrl.
