EDMONTON The former chairman of the Science Council of Canada said Thursday night there has been a striking lack of im- agination in the development bj northern settlements Dr 0 M Solandt said towns such as Churchill Man and Inuvik N W T are un- imaginative They are winterized southern built without attention to the needs of the native people He told the sixth national conference on northern development that new settlements built as explora- tion expands should have a variety of accommodations Efforts must be made to a void creating ghettos with igloos on one side and a transplanted small town on the other The natural environment of the North must not be de- stroyed Dr Solandt and large areas of wilderness must be preserved He saidlie believes that a gas pipeline can be built with acceptable environmental protection There also is a need for social research 'by people who live in the North and un- derstand what is going on And resident scientists should be encouraged instead of hav- ing itinerant experts coming in for a few days Dr Solandt also said it is ludicrous to believe the Russians are far ahead of Canadians in northern development and research Canada has done at

Democrat and Social Credit attacks The opposition also took the opportunity to criticize Mr Whelan Rancher Jack Horner said Mr Whelan is a loveable farm but has no ability to sell his policies to his cabinet colleagues DOUBTS CABINET SUPPORT Alf Cleave toon said even the cabinet does not accept Mr Whelan s statement that Canadians enjoy cheap food prices and has set up the food prices review board Mr Horner accused the gov- ernment of adopting short- term policies m setting ar- bitrary prices for farm goods These prices would harm con- sumers in the long run because they would tend to br- ing about scarcity and higher prices next year Mr Whelan put government farm policy m a nutshell I would say it is to provide the framework within which Canadian consumers can be assured of a steady supply of wholesome food at reasonable prices and to provide farmers and the whole agricultural in- dustry with a reasonable in- come comparable to the rest of Canadian society Mr Gleave said Mr Whelan has complained of not being able to get legislation through the Commons If he were to bring legisla- tion before this House that would provide up-to-date sup- port it would receive passage PUTS

Commons call for a commission of in- quiry into the and practices' of the UIC That move failed to lack of unanimous consent Mr Ellis then turned to a report result- ing from a four-month study by him of the UIC The 42-page document among other that abuse of the unemploy- ment plan is that disqualified claims are rising at an unprecedented rate and that administrative costs are running up to 50 per cent higher this year than in 1972 Mr Ellis says that even with lower unemployment rates this the program will cost com- pared to billion in 1972 SAYS WITHHELD He claims that the commis- sion management has deleted information from reports em- barrassing to the government and savs UIC chairman Guy Cousmeau kne.v before the Oct 30 election last year how much money the commission would need but didn't ask for it in order to help the govern- ment politically The cost of the unemploy ment program was a hot issue in that election campaign Mr Cousmeau said during Commons committee meetings earlier this year that he didn't request the UIC appropriations before the election was called because he thought Parliament would resume Sept 1972. as it would have without the elec- tion call Prime Minister Trudeau called the election after a spe- cial Commons session in Au- gust Mr. Ellis also attacks what he describes as computer system that simply does not work as a major factor is soaring administration costs His report says those costs will double over last year's million He says the computer system breakdown forced the to use a costly and time consuming manual pay system where employees were expected to do the work of computers This led to ex- cessive overtime and deteriorating morale among the workers The computer problem also hampers the processing of overpayments says
