OPPOSITION CRITICAL In the assembly, the Opposi tion criticized Premier Rober Eourassa's Liberal governmen for being slow in acting to bring disuption of power supplies un der control. Opposition parties had asked for an emergency de bate last week. They also were critical of the sweeping provisions of the bill which they suggested was nearly the equivalent of an out- right back-to-work order.
