"As well, some French-Canadian ministers prefer to work In English churches, where Ihey have more financial He said Ihe numbers of French-speaking Proleslants have been dwindling for the last 100 years. The French Protestant tradition dates back to the 18th century when French Cal-vinists settled in Quebec. ROSE TN LAST CENTURY In the 19th century, a surge of evangelism increased the numbers of French-speaking Methodists, and Anglicans. At the height of this resurgence, there were more than 100 French-Canadian Protestant ministers in the province, Mr. Porret said. Now, he estimated, there are about 12 such ministers for the French speaking Protestants who are members of the Pres-ijylerian, Baplist, Anglican and Uni'ed Churches, as well ns Ihe Salvation Army and Assembly of God. In an address to about 150 delegates attending the assembly. Mr. Porret said the Roman Catholic Church in Quebec is lie main ally of the French Protestants. In the past, the French Protestants were ostracized hy the Catholics and subjected lo persecution. But in the lasl few years Ihere has been a strong ecumenical spirit of co-operation between the two groups, he said. The successes of the ecumenical movement in Canada has bpcn due. in part, to the in-i' ativc of the Frcnch-sreak'ng Protestant clergy in Ouebcc who befriended the Catholics. HE ONLY ONE Mr. Porret. the only French-Canadian delegate lo Ihe assembly, a fellowship of 11 mem-icr Protestant, Anglican and Irthoflox churches, said the 'rench-spcakinp Protestants lo remain "dcenly engaged in the French milieu" to jrolcct Ilicir interests.

Mr. Allmand, who took over the solicitor-general's depart ment from Mr. Goyer when Prime Minister Trudeau shuffled liis cabinet Monday said he is disturbed by some in stances that have occured as a result of the programs. He refered to prisoners who have committed crimes while away from prison on temporary leave. But he emphasized, when he spoke to reporters after a meeting of the Liberal caucus, that he was not opposed lo Ihe llirusl of Ihe programs adopted by his predecessor. "Many of the reforms he tried to inlroduce I supporl. "But this doesn'l mean Ihere isn't room to tighten up on the administration ol ugher of those programs, even longstanding programs." Society must be protected Mr. Allmand said. Mr. Allmand also said he nil tour a number of penitenliarie and RCMP regional offices in Canada before Parliamen meets Jan. 4. He said the tour will focus on inslilulions and offices in dis-tant places such as British Columbia because, once the House sits, it will be difficult for him to travel far from Otlawa. His primary purpose, he said, will be to obtain the views o administrative personnel, guards and prisoners on the over-all corrections system i n Canada. Among other things, he added, he will investigate reports of unrest among prison guards, such as those recently at Millhaven penitentiary outside Kingston, Ont. The minister also said he will give "full consideralion" lo a requesl for a sludy of the correctional system hy the Commons committee on Justice and legal affairs. The request was made in a letter lo Mr. Allmand by Mark Rose, New Democratic Party MP for Fraser Valley West, who asked that the study focus in particular on the parole and temporary absence programs in Canada. Mr. Rose said there is concern among memhers of the pubu'c, correctional officers and prisoners about the system as it now exists. In talking with these people, he said, he found no general desire for a return lo a purely punilivc prison system. However, "administrative Incompetence of some magnitude prevails" and neither the parole nor temporary absence programs hnvc been clearly ex-i .lined lo the public.
