Mr. Henderson said present mblic concern on pollulion was wt gene-rated by the actions of loliticians but could be attri- mted primarily to the actions if the r.ews media. He said the news media had rerformed a good service in naking the public aware of the jrowing pollution situation bul here was a "significant degree of public ignorance of what is .joing on in Alberta respecting jollution control." Alberta has a record to none In Canada and per haps on this he said. The health minister sail there was good reason why Al bertans are not aware of the control measures taken by the government in years past anaid that the correspondence ver the estradition could nol 5c released because it was nol the custom to release inter-gov- ernmenlal correspondence.
