Minister to be probed on ferry system 6study' VICTORIA The British Columbia Legislature has voted to set up a special committee to study the ques- tion of whether Transport Minister Bob Strachan lied to the House regarding an inter- nal study of the B.C. Ferries system. The accusation was levelled during the daily question period by Bob McClelland who said the minister had denied knowledge of any such study in one was going on and therefore he lied to the House and should resign The Social Credit member refused to withdraw the ac- cusation that the minister was a liar when asked to do so by Speaker Gordon Dowding as a was ejected from the legislative chamber tor the remainder of the after- noon sitting. He returned for the evening sitting which began with a mo- tion from Attorney-General Alex Macdonald that the Legislature's selection com- mittee appoint a special com1 mittee to look into the matter and report back to the members. The committee was to meet today. Opposition members argued perhaps the fastest way to handle the matter would be a debate in the House but the motion was passed by a vote of 35-to-12. The conservatives and Allan Williams Yancouver-Howe who broke ranks with his Liberal voted with the government. Ed Smith Peace argued the special committee will have more government members than opposition so the outcome will be a Scott Wallace said he thought Mr McClelland should have been allowed to make a statement at the start of the evening sitting but added oerhaos a committee was best able to handle the matter. Mr. McClelland did table documents at the night sitting to back his arguments. The documents included a Goldwater thinks Nixon should stay WASHINGTON An- other conservative Republican senator has at- tacked President Nixon's handling of the Watergate af- fair while two others said most of their anti-Nixon mail is inspired by the president's enemies. Senator Peter Dominick advised Republicans to declare political independence of the Nixon White House and said the party must co-operate in beginning impeachment pro- ceedings to establish the president's innocence of guilt. Dominick and Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott called on Nixon to make a complete disclosure of all tapes and documents relating to the Watergate investigations. Last Senator Barry Goldwater said public confidence in Nixon is so low that his only hope of es- cape is to appear voluntarily before the Senate Watergate committee and testify under oath speaking Monday in Goldwater said that Nixon should not resign. letter dated Oct. 4 from William B.C.

On Nov. Mr. Mr. Weston ordered Mr. Machin to stop the return all information belong- ing to B C. and send a bill for services rendered. Mr. McClelland first raised the issue on the management survey in the Legislature on Oct. 11 and he was told by Mr. Strachan at that time no such study was being conducted. Mr. Strachan insisted Mon- day he had not authorized any such study but told a news conference manager he found out Oct. 31 that Monty B.C. Ferries general had approved the study by F R.

Marcel Lambert monton made the com- ment after former Conser- vative prime minister John Diefenbaker said a support role would make the combat- ready regiment of wood and drawers of External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp and James defence both' said they expect a Cana- dian advance team now in the Middle East will report that Canada has a role to fill there. The 11-man military team flew to the Middle East Sun- day at the request of UN Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim to determine what support is needed for the peacekeeping force. Mr. Sharp announced Oct. 30 that Canada is willing to participate in the peacekeep- ing operation.

Hearings drawing to close 'WASHINGTON After only two days of the Senate rules committee appears almost ready to wrap up public hearings on the nomination of Vice President-designate Gerald Ford. Chairman Howard Cannon said the com- mittee will meet in closed ses- sion Wednesday to hear Robert a former lobbyist who has made a series of allegations against and from Dr. Arnold a New York psychiatrist. Beyond Cannon only one Donald Fraser chairman of Americans for Democratic ask- ed to testify against Ford. Cannon said it is possible the committee could end its investigation of Ford next sending the nomination to the Senate floor soon afterward. NIXON 'INNOCENT' In closing out his testimony before the Ford said he does not share Presi- dent Nixon's reputed animosi- ty toward the called himself an internationalist where foreign policy is said he thinks Nix- on is completely innocent of the Watergate break-in and and said he thinks Nixon can save his presidency. Ford decried the fact that the Watergate il- legal acts of a handful of should cause Americans to forget the president's record. Off-year elections under way WASHINGTON Politicians are closely watching scattered off-year U.S. elections today for a clue to the impact of Watergate. They may not learn much. Today's headlined by governorship races in New Jersey and Virginia and a mayoral contest in New York represent the first national sampling of voter sentiment since the eruption of White House political scan- dals and is being viewed as a possible preview of 1974. The spotlight turns first to New Jersey where Democrat Brendan Byrne is expected to win a governorship captured by the Republicans in 19W. But this hardly looks like a Watergate bellweather. a former faces conservative Republican Representative Charles 52. Sandman beat Republican Gov. William Cahill in a June primary that left the party deeply split. A Democratic victory would appear probable in such circumstances even without Watergate. In Republican con- trol of the governor's mansion is considered in possible jeop- ardy. But the Democrats don't even have a nominee on the ballot. The Republican nominee is former Democratic governor Mills 58. His opponent Is Lt.-Gov. Henry a Democrat running as an inde- pendent. In New York Democrat Abraham is expected to win promo- tion from city comptroller to succeeding John Lind- who won the job eight years ago as a was re-elected as the Liberal party nominee and then joined the Democrats. a veteran politician who lost to Lindsay in is so far ahead in the polls he is given a good chance of getting more than half the vote against State Senator John the Republican Assemblyman Albert the Liberal party and Representative Mario of the Conserrative party. Elsewhere in New York Democrats are ex- pected to hold mayoral honors in Albany and However they have suggested 14 two of which have been ruled out of order. Spokesmen for both parties said the controls at least would be a start in controlling foreign domination of in- dustry. The bill would establish a screening agency to decide if foreign takeovers of existing firms are in Canada's interest. It also would place controls on existing firms wanting to make new investments in non-related fields. Before the emergency energy debate Com- MAItCKL LAMHKKT mons attention was divided between the oil situation and the still undefined terms un- der which Canada will play a part in the Middle East. Mr. Sharp pushed aside any suggestion that Canada is ac- tively seeking a role in the peace force. Cana- dian participation was being sought strongly by Mr. Waldheim. CAN'T BE REPLACED The UN secretary-general could not of another country suitable to replace Canada in the support Mr. Sharp and Canada wants to help as much as possible. Debate on the proposed for- eign investment controls lasted about two with only Conservatives and New Democrats speaking. It was cut short by the energy debate. Paul Hellyer said the bill lacks positive measures to encourage Cana- dians to invest'in their own economy but it could be a until such long-term measures are in- troduced. Lome Nystrom said about 15 to 20 per cent of annual foreign investment would be affected by the bill the screening agency can be very powerful under the hands of a concerned minister Royal Winter Fair opens this Friday By BRUCE EASSON TORONTO The re- minder of Canada's rural the Royal Agricultural Winter opens Friday and during its eight-day run the pungent barnyard aroma will be a sensation for the city-dwellers who will make up most of its anticipated 000 visitors Back .when the Royal began in almost half Canada's nine million people lived on farms. out of 22 only 1.5 million are farm resi- dents. most families it now is two generations without a member on a said John the fair's general manager. those in their the fair is chance to renew their faith in the real land.
