Among other salient points Friday, just 10 days from the time when Canadians their next federal government, was a statement by John Turner, federal finance minis statement about tin; wealth that could be harvested from the shelf areas off Canada's coasts.

The excitement in tin's area, Mr. Tradeau said, arises from the fact that means are at hand to start harvesting re- sources. Hint they aren't just a dream for future gain.

Although Ihe new rules are to apply only to round-trip trans- atlantic charters, the commis- sion said it is studying the pos- sibility of applying them to charters within Canada.
