adopted by some of the best papers on the North American The pub lics right to know extends only to ineontroveitible or ascer tainable Where newspa pers are it does not extend to emotional fic Yet in their yearning to hasten social change some of the media lend themselves to such blatant misuse that it is enough for any progres sive to utter a meaningless figment of his or her imagina tion to have

Canadians have gone thiough a retrainuig this works out to one for every 20 of the total or one for every eight of the actual work Granted that we are living in changing and that a certain amount of
