Two reasons were cited by the minister in a news release for not allowing the sale. An- nual tree harvest in the Kootenay Lake basin is already over the limit con- sidered environmentally he and wildlife is threatened. Second reason is that Mitsubishi-Honshu of Japan Controls more than 50 per cent of Crestbrook. Mr. Williams said the Japanese company already dominates the forest economy of the East Kootenay district. government was of the opinion that so dominant an equity position in an impor- tant region of the province should be in Canadian he said.

The coldest period of the day comes just before daybreak'. longer people stay in bed the Refineries are pushing pro- duction to the limit to meet re- quirements that exist he said. Adding new demands would be unwise. EVENING CITED Daylight time has been advocated to reduce the amount of oil used to general electricity. The advocates argue that since darkness would come later than under standard time there would be less power demands during the peak early evening hours.
