Under the department's final rule on so-called passive-restraint safety systems, 1976 model cars will have to be designed to protect all car occupants from any injury in a 30-mile-an-hour crash whether bead on, from the side, or roll over. The announcement by Transportation Secretary John A. Volpe culminates months of dispute w;th the car industry. All macsft�cturers except General Motors have contended the front-seat devices are impossible to provide before the 1975-model year. An additional new standard, effective for 1973-model cars, would require a dashboard light and a buzzer that signals when front-seat passengers have PHALT 2 k/ING ^ ASHPHALT PAVING TOLLESTRUP SAND and Construction PHONE 328-2702 - failed to fasten their shoulder straps and lap belts.

"The greatest problem areas are already almost unmanageable," says the study in reference to the biggest cities. "By the year 2001, we can look forward to the type of intractable situations facing major urban centres' at present in the United States and elsewhere. . . . "Effective policies are called for now if we are to alleviate the extremely-costly consequences of rapid urbanization." The report proposes a new system of co-operative policymaking and action among Canadian governments. One aim would be to control patterns of city growth and forestall social disintegration. One of the main suggestions calls for development of satellite population centres on government-owned land linked to other urban centres by highspeed trasport systems. ECONOMIST'S STUbY The report, entited Urban Canada-Problems and Prospects, was prepared in five months of late 1969 and early 1970 under the direction of N. Harvey Lithwick, urban economist of Carleton University, Ottawa. The book-sized report of 236 pages, supported by a half-dozen special research studies, was commissioned by Robert Andras, minister responsible for housing. Available to the federal cabinet in draft form since a year ago, the report is said to have been the prime influence in persuading Prime Minister Tru-deau that the federal government should play a guiding role in urban policy-regarded as a provincial matter under the constitution. The Lithwick study, which is sharply critical of the piecemeal approach of some previous federal surveys and present practices, also led to the decision to establish a new ministry of state for urban affairs to be headed by Mr. Andras. Mr. Lithwick will h e a d the proposed new ministry's research, planning and policy section-a function proposed by him. MOVE TO CITIES Urban problems soon will be those of virtually all Canadians. Projections point to amost all Canadians living in cities within 30 years-70 to 75 out of 100 liv- ing in Just 12 cities, possibly 50 out of 100 in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver alone. The Lithwick analysis traces a pattern whereby many problems of housing, transport, poverty and congestion arise from the nature of economic progress and city growth. Up to a point, the development of cities is rational and the benefits to people far outweigh the costs, says the report. But beyond some critical growth point-perhaps a population of 500,000-the economic and social costs accelerate rapidly because of competing demands for scarce urban land. The process of urban sprawl, demands for transport systems that further reduce available space, the crowd of the poor as land becomes more expensive pick up speed as cities develop. The cost of correction soon outstrips resources. In any case, most corrective actions attacks symptoms, not causes. WON'T HALT GROWTH The report decides against any attempt to bait rapid urban growth by edict, not only because of the difficulties but because it would stall development of benefits and remove "the right of individuals to choose' where and how to live." Rather, governments 6hould get together to channel urban growth in a way that would maintain expansion of benefits while preventing the development of problems that result inevitably from growing scarcity of land. The conclusion advocated limiting urban sprawl and the development of linked satellite communities. The links would be mass transit systems-not cars-and land in the new com-munities would be publicly owned. The report proposes establishment of a national urban council of federal and regional interests to formulate policies and plans. Urban policies should flow from national goals for social, economic and physical development. The report proposes development of comprehensive provincial plans that fit with national goals. Regional plans would be designed to mesh with the provincial strategies and urban governments would allocate lands and social policies.

No. 670 processes now under way in our major metropolitan areas are encountering a serious policy vacuum." Thus, the first priority in Canada is a general agreement that an urban policy is needed. "Urban development in Canada today is not guided by comprehensive, rational policies. "It is impelled by a basic belief in the righteousness of economic expansion, and it is expressed in a willingness to accept growth as inevitable and indeed desirable. "In the absence of any more explicit goals, urban policies tend to be pragmatic, piecemeal, and responsive rather than allocative in nature." The main findings and proposals of the Lithwick report have been accepted generally by the federal government, although Mr. Andras says he does not accept everything in the report STEPS TAKEN Steps have already been taken to establish the federal departments proposed in the report. Parliamentary authority for the new ministry of state is contained in the government reorganization bill being debated by the Commons. In addition to the research and policy-generating section headed by Mr. Lithwick, a counterpart section is planned to carry out policy proposals. Andre Saumier, a former senior public servant in the regional expansion department who has been working lately in West Africa, is designated to head the section that would coordinate policies and practices Law student new president EDMONTON (CP) - Don McKenzie, 22, second-year law student, was elected as president of the University of Alberta students' union. It was the first election at the university to use a slate system, loosely akin to a party system. Others elected were Dave Bil-tek, academic vice-president; Ian McDonell, external vice-president; Vera Radio, secretary; Franz Slatter, treasurer; and Doug Black, co-ordinator to the executive team. affecting the cities, both among various' "federal departments and agencies and among federal, provincial and municipal governments. Chief of both sections would be Peter Oberlander, professor of urban affairs at the University of British Columbia. NOT EXAMINED FULLY In housing, there has been a tendency to accept the idea of a crisis without really examining the true dimensions of demand, quality and crowding, the report says. Evidence of a steady reduction in crowding, improvement in quality and indications that true demand has been confused with want suggestions that hous ing problems might have been grossy exaggerated, the report says. The Economic Council of Canada, CMHC and the Hellyer report all have assumed demand for houses is virtually unlimited and have concentrated on im-proving the supply without really knowing what people required. Similarly the magnitude and naibure of urban poverty may well be different than commonly believed. Absence of data makes it impossible even to describe the condition of the urban poor, the report says. In fact, evidence suggests that the proportion of urban families designated as poor has been de-dining. It also indicates that most of the urban poor are old or otherwise unemployable. In the provinces, the study finds that prospects for rapid development of urban policy are not bright, but there are tentative changes that suggest a new approach may be evolving. Generally, provincial governments lack a comprehensive policy for cities, it says. Similarly, "no city appears to have any clear set of urban goals." The study proposes a system of co-operation by ail governments toestabllsh national goals, develop regional plans that conform to the aims and carry them out at the municipal level. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 10 DAYS ONLY - MARCH 8th to 18th BRAKE OVERHAUL FOR M Dr. Bouchard still makes house calls. The tiny village of Rock Island, Quebec, gets on annual average snowfall of 100 inches. And the temperature can sit below zero for weeks. So when Dr. Gilles Bouchard's patients can't get to him, he goes to them. By Volkswagen. They say around Rock Island that it makes folks feel better just seeing his little red VW chugging about the countryside. But for him, a Volkswagen is more a necessity than an eccentricity. In fact, it's just what the doctor ordered. His practice covers500sqoare miles. Arid what with churning through drifts along snow-choked backroads in winter, or slogging through mud and slush in the spring, he logs 15,000 miles a year. And while travel by Volkswagen isn't the fastest method known to man, we were delighted to hear that a bug can still win a race with the storlu One sub-zero morning, a baby was on the way 20 miles from town. But the doctor wasn't. His other car, a big fast sedan, wouldn't start. What to do? "In spite of the cold, the bug started right oway." says Dr. Bouchard. "And I made It ju*t In the nick of time." Mother, baby, doctor and Volkswagen are doing just fine.
