Two reports, one by a pri- vate Vancouver firm, and the other by the northern branch of the fisheries service, both made lor Environment Canada, were that Ridley released today. Both conclude Island, about four miles south of Prince Rupert, would be suit- able. Prince Rupert is about 500 miles north of Vancouver. The fisheries service report. a biological assessment of the Skeena River estuary, was bas- ed on a study conducted for al- most five months from mid- April through August, 1972. The other report, by F. F. j Slaney and Co. Ltd., is a pre- Rupert and about a mile off- shore, is not suitable for devel- opment, while Ridley Island is suitable for development as a superport. The fisheries report says con- struction of the port in the Kitson Island-Flora bank area "would result in destruction of a very important salmon babi it." Ridley Island, however, "lies within a zone of industrial pol- tat. lution which can only be moderately improved through available waste treatmen1 technology."

This study was conducted during a four-week period this i spring. i The Slaney report recom- mends that a core planning group "from all concerned gov- i ernment agencies" be formed to further study development of a pert jer for Drumheller and the ongest-sitting MLA. Mr. Taylor's statements Feb. 19 alleged that F. J. E. Davy, a 35-year-old surveyor, was icld in the Alberta Hospital for 35 days because he was both- ering the government in his at- tempts to gain compensation for injuries he suffered in in- dustrial accidents. _ The findings of a judicial in- quiry, called into the charges on Feb. 20, were released Fri- day. They said Mr. Taylor's al- legations bad no foundation. Mr. Crawford quoted remarks Mr Taylor had made "a rape of civil "a mock- ery of the Bill of "a shameful day when people of the province are incarcerat- ed in a mental hospital when they are fighting for their own rights." It would "be an understate- ment, Mr. Crawfod said, to de- scribe these statements as "in- sulting and offensive." "They do not sit with any person of reputation." They indicate, he said, that Mr. Taylor was so "insensitive" he actually believed anyone in the legislature would have the "callous attitudes that he des- cribes." "There is the further senous question of whether he made statements knowing them to be false."
