Among the most dlfflcull questions facing this assembly is an appeal from Waldheim to find "measures to prevent ter- rorism and other forms of vio- lence wliich endanger or take innocent human lives or jeop- ardize fundamental MONTREAL (CP) Ilcne' Levesque, Part] Quebecols leader, sold Monday the Cana- dian Armed Forces has a file on the political activities of a Quebec labor body. A defence department spokes- man said later the file on the Confederation of National Trade Unions was simply a compilation of what had ap- peared in "public sources" such as news reports. However, the defence depart- ment spokesman Bald the re- port was strictly a military In- formation document and not a report to or (or the govern- ment. He denied that Mobile Command or any other part ol the Canadian military is in- volved in the business of direct collection o[ the type of infor- mation contained in the docu- ment. He denied that any segment of the Canadian military estab- lishment directly collects infor- mation of the kind contained in the document released by Mr. Lcvesque at a news conterence. The armed forces spokesman OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Chamber of Commerce agreed Monday that the gov- ernment should liavo a contin- gency plan for imposition of price and wage controls to combat periods of serious in- flation. But Ihc chnmber, the voice of business across Canada, side- stepped foi' a lime nt least a suggestion that inflation al- ready has reached a crisis stage and that such controls should be applied now. The Greater Victoria Cham- ber of Commerce argued that controls should be applied now, "not as a permanent feature of Canadian economic life but as a means of immediately con- trolling further inflation while an acceptable solution is found to regular wages and prices in Cairo chosen capital of unified state TRIPOLI (fleuler) Egyp- tian President Anwar Sadat and Libyan leader Col. Mua mar Kaddafi have chosen Cairo as the capital of the unified state of 37 million people to be formed by the merger of their two countries. An official statement issued Monday night after four (lays of talks in the Libyan capital be- tween the two leaders and their delegations also said any Arab country believing in the aims ol the republican state and ac- cepting its constitution would be able to join. The union will be In addition to the Federation of Arab He- publics already linking Egypt and Libya with Syria. The statement said the merger of the two countries woujd come in stages wilhin one year. The final text of the merger plan is to be put to the such a way as to be non-in- flationary." Victoria's resolution was sent :o the chamber's national direc- ,ors for further consideration. The chamber stand, as ap- proved at a policy session of :he annual convention, is that controls are unlikely to succeed 'unless a real crisis exists and unless there's a national con- sensus in their favor. NEEDS PLAN But it said the government should have a standby plan for use under such conditions. Terry Fanner, president of the Victoria chamber, said his group feels a crisis situation al- ready exists. "When hundreds of thousands of Canadian people on fixed in- comes find their money deval- ued by inflation to the point where are living a sub- standard existence; "When n businessman is forced to raise prices of liis cpTvipp.i nr products to in- creased costs and finds lie priced himself out of business; 'When the rate ol inflation continues at a level in excess of four per cent, and yet unem- ployment continues at record high levels; When labor unions can de- mand and obtain increases twice as high as the rise in cost of living; "We have reached a crisis situation." TIME IS NOW Mr. Farmer said the Victoria feels a solution to the problem is not likely to de- veloped unless Canada "im- poses controls now and, while they arc in temporary effect, clevises more effective meth- ods." The subject of inflation and controls was the only one that generated more than passing comment as the chamber ham- mered out its policy stand on a vaviely of subjects from agri- culture to better postal facil- ities. Harvest delayed by damp weather CALGARY (CP) Another disappointing week ol mostly cool, damp weather caused fur- ther delays in harvesting Alber- on Soviet oppression, on receiv- ing the honorary freedom of the city of London in 1963 and on his One Canada policy as spelled out In 19G7 lo a Progres- sive- Conservative Association.
