Food was also one of the biggest topics for inquiries. Prices led the list of com- plaints by category hi 1969, fol- lowed .by quality, compensa- tion, alleged unethical practices and advertising.

Besides Alberta, Ontario had the highest count with 125 peo- ple and then Quebec with 70. Also staying at the house were many dogs that were travelling with the youths using the facilities. Various people have commented thst there is a surprisingly large number of people crossing the country with dogs for companions. There were 17 guests from countries other than the U.S. including; Ireland, England, Holland, Trinidad, France and Sweden. Communication proved no barrier to these people hi Canada. Co-director Brian Brindley reported to The Herald that the number of transients using the facilities is now starting to dwindle due to school enrol- ment. 'The house couldn't have aeen successful if it hadn't been :'or the co-operation, of resi- dents in the said staffer Kee. "Their donations to- wards furnishings have been greatly appreciated." Brian Brindley said that the need for the hostel again next summer was made evident this year. He is plan- ning to try and keep the house open during the winter so it car. be used again in the sum- mer as a hostel. Although local youth have met to discuss future plans and programs for tha centre, noth- ing definite has been decided upon, other than agreeing it was a worthwhile city project. Some of the plans tentatively being made for the centre in- clude: renting rooms to univer- sity and college students, keep- ing two rooms open for tran- sients all winter, operating a medical and drug crisis and in- formation centre and organiz- ing various workshops for local youth. about government functions and services have taken the lead over food. J. Catlcy, assistant direc- tor of the consumer services branch, said almost as many men use Box 99 as women. "We are completely equipped to handle complaints in the French language and the num- ber of these increased percepti- boy this he said. Aside from resulting in num- erous bulletins about subjects concerning consumers, the Box 99 service also sparked an inter- departmental study of hearing aids. The Box 99 complaints prob- ably also influenced the con- sumer affairs department in its formulation of regulations under the Hazardous Products Act. The regulations set out certain warning symbols and information to be included on the labels of containers of toxic substances. As well, the consumer ser- vice has shown that the lack of adequate care and fibre .label- ling on fabrics concerns many Canadian consumers. This spring Parliament pass- ed a bill requiring names of Ibrss representing more than :ive per cent by weight of a 'abric to be shown on the labels of a wide range of garments.
