E. H. LaBorde. a transporta- tion consultant, said today the only way Canadians can offset North American Dockw ell's bid is to have Canada first certify the air worthiness of the aircraft. The plane, in service In t h e Soviet Union since 1966, is the short-lakeoff ami-landing Yak- 40 tri-jef. It has not been certified In any North American country, and only in a few European areas. The Alberta group has been negotiating with members of the Russian embassy in Ottawa for some time, Mr. LaBordo Eaid. The Alberta rnprescnlalives were anxious to have the jet displayed and demonstrated in the province as a possible pre- lude to establishing a Canadian distribution agency for Iha craft. North American Rock- well said last week it was ne- gotiating to obtain the distribu- tion rights In the U.S. It has a 700-mile range and can seat up to 31 passengers or be modified to haul freight.

The health minister said, however, that pharmacists will not be allowed to dispense an alternative drug in cases where the doctor stipulates that no substitute be made.
