They are members of a citi- zens' commission which plans to examine the content of the act, the reasons why it was invoked during the Quebec terrorist cri- sis last October, the way il was applied and its effects on human rights. Members of Uie commission include John Morgan, a Uni- tarian minister from Toronto, Linda Mcissenheimcr, a Simon Fraser University student, Trevor Barry, executive secre- tary of the Manitoba Human Rights Commission and Wood- row Lloyd, former NDP pre- mier of Saskatchewan. Mr. Lloyd was absent from the closed-door session today. Quebec commissioners in- clude Fernand Daoust, secre- tary-general of the Quebec Fed- eration of Labor, Michel Bour- don and Alonzo Leblanc of the Confederation of National Trade Unions, Prof. Laurier Lapierre of McGill University and Adele Lauzon, a journalist. In Montreal, first stop on a cross-Canada agenda, the com- mission will hear briefs from unions, student groups, lawyers, the Parti Quebecois, the Com- munist Party and individuals, including Michel Chartrand, outspoken CNTU official. Claude Ryan, publisher of Lo Devoir, gave the commissioners a private briefing. He said In an Interview later that his remarks had been "general" to help commissiont- ers from outside the province "understand the crisis as it oc- curred within Quebec." His report, he added, con- tained "nothing new." Review urges changes in federal department FREDERICTON (CP) The Atlantic Provinces Economic Council today called for a re-or- ganization of the federal depart- ment of regional economic ex- pansion on a regional basis to bring the department "closer to the people it is designed to serve." The recommendation comes in APEC's fifth annual review of the Atlantic economy which says the department is "an abandoned orphan, shunned by its bureaucratic playmates and supported only grudgingly by Canadian taxpayers." APEC, a non-profit, non-politt- al organization that promote: the economic and social devel- opment of Atlantic Canada, says DBEE's record during its first 30 months of operation is "dis- It attributes this to the department's structure and approach, its failure to establish and adhere to firm policy lines and "the government's inept landling of the national econ- omy" which has made regional progress difficult. Transfer of planning, imple- mentation, industrial i n t e 11 i- ;ence and promotion for the At- lantic provinces from Ottawa to regional office headed by a deputy minister is the main rec- ommendation in Uie 118-page re- port. RETAIN SMALL OFFICES A field office subordinate to he regional office should be maintained in Newfoundland be- cause of distance and "some- what different problems." A sin- He Maritime operation should >e the goal of regionalization, 'Ut APEC says it may be neces- sary to retain small provincial rfficcs for an unspecified period time. Administration, co-ordination and evaluation functions of the department and the Regiona' Development Incentives A c I would remain in Ottawa. The report says the regional approach would bring aboul close co-operation between var- ious levels of governments anc private business and develop- ment of home-grown business- men. It would also make it eas- ier for the department to partic- ipate in more imaginative pro- grams and permit it to co-ordi- nate its activities in the region. Seven reasons are given by APEC for its recommendation of regionalization. It says the "Ottawa-based bureaucracy" is central Canadian-oriented and that regional planning carried out thousands of miles from the areas it is designed to assist is difficult. Also: intelligence must be focused on a regional basis, appropriate for one underdeveloped region may not be appropriate for another; Killer storm hits island MANILA (Reuter) The :hird killer storm in a week smashed into the main northern Philippine island of Luzon to- night, with at least 15 persons dead. Thousands were made home- less and rising flood waters de- stroyed crops and property as :he tropical storm, named Dad- ang, hit just south of Manila. The death toll is expected to rise sharply when reports are received from the 17 provinces affected by Dadang and the two previous storms. national political cli- mate may not be favorable for types of innovation needed in the Atlantic provinces; co-operation is needed between the three levels of govtrnment and between gov- ernment and the private sector: present structure of thn department has not functioned to the best advantage and is not likely to do so. CONCEDES POINT APEC concedes that its rec- ommendations, which would re- main in effect for at least 10 years, would result in a tempo- rary slowdown of department activity. "The alternative, how- ever, would be infinitely less de- sirable: an ill-organized and only partially effective depart- ment destined to incur increas- ing criticisms and perhaps to be dismantled with its job un- done." Under the present setup, there is an assistant deputy minister for the Atlantic provinces and field officers in the provincial capitals. In the absence of any long- term commitments by Ottawa, APEC says, the provinces re- gard the department as a "tem- porary cornucopia to be plucked as quickly as possible before Ot- tawa snatches it Exami- nation of statements by depart- ment officials has failed to produce indication where re- gional development fits into the government's priorities and how long the department will remain in existence. 'Ottawa must assure the wovinces that DREE is going ;o remain for at least 10 years and that the department will have certain stated sums of money available to it over the period. Mr. Ryan said he was "consi- dering" an invitation to appear during the public hearings which were to begin later today. The idea of a citizens' com- mittee originated at the Univer- sity of Waterloo in Ontario and spread to other provinces. Prof, Richard Dunlop of tho University of British Columbia, said lie was approached eight months ago about joining tho commission. 'At the time the WMA was in- he said, "I was one of the people who said Uie govern- ment may be right." "But the evidence didn't emerge." Prof. Dunlop said the com- mission wants to hear from peo- ple across the country. "We are interested in the fun- d a m e n t a 1 question of what should be the proper balance between government emergency powers on the one hand and civil liberties on the other." OPPOSED ACT All five Quebecers on the commission have been outspo- ken opponents of the WMA and of its succeeding legislation, the Public Order (Temporary Mea- sures) Act 1970. "The very fact that we set up this said Mr. Bourdon, 'shows that we don't buy all of the government's offi- cial version of the crisis." The commission plans to pub- lish a report next spring. A series of committees across Canada have raised money for the commission from student groups, civil rights organiza- tions, labor unions, some church groups and private individuals. Commissioner F e r 11 a n d Daoust said the commission did not have official status and could not force a witness to ap- pear. The WMA was invoked Oct. 16, 1970, at the request of the Montreal and Quebec govern- ments after the kidnapping of James Cross, British trade com- missioner In Montreal, and Pierre' Laporte, Quebec labor minister. Mr. Laporte was strangled by his kidnappers the day after the act was invoked. Mr. Cross was released Dec. 3 in an exchange that permitted his kidnappers to be flown to Cuba the same day. The WMA gave police wide- spread powers of search and ar- rest without a warrant and was attacked for curtailing civil lib- erties.
