The six-member planning commission then voted 4-2 to deliberate and make decisions on development appli- cations in closed session and to treat advice of the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission confidentially. The part of the meetings in which applicants and olher interested parties are heard and questioned will remain open. Official reason given lor closing the deliberative portion at the MFC meetings which have been completely open for some time was to give the members more freedom to de- bate the matters before them. Commission chairman Aid. Bill Kergan, who voted against the closure resolution with Bob Bartlelt, city com- munity services director, said after (he meeting, that while he believed in open meetings wherever possible, the majority decision was to close that part of the MFC meet- ings for the reason given. ORRPC liasion officer William Helton initiated the closure action, requesting such a resolution be placed be- fore the commission at its meeting last week. Members voting for the resolution were Deputy Mayor Cam Barnes, Aid. Ed Basledo, city engineering director Randy Holdfield, and utilities director Oil Erdos.

Program launched In its new Explorations pro- gram launched in Ottawa this week, the Canada Council will make grants available to inno- vators in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. This program replaces and extends the scope of the Cana- dian Horizons program. Grants will be made for work on Can- ada's historical and cultural heritage as well as projects which explore "new forms of expression, participation, com- munication and diffusion." Through the program the council expects to identify worthwhile areas of activity which do not receive supporl under established council pro- grams. Award winners will be chosen through national compe- titions. Applications for grants may be submitted by Canadian citi- zens, landed immigrants who have resided in Canada for no less than three years, and Ca- nadian organizations. The amount of each granl will depend on the duration and 'cost of the project submit- ted. As the program budget is limited, competition lor grants will be rigorous. First assessment of applies fions in the program will be made by five regional juries sitting in locations to be chosen in the Atlantic provinces, Que- bec, Ontario, the Prairies and British Columbia. Deadlines for applications in 1973 are June 1, September 1 and December 1, Results are announced four months after each deadline.
