The group, calling itself Alberta Citizens Supporting Orthomolecular Medicine, asked for the inquiry in a letter to the premier this week.

Government concerned about urban sprawl EDMONTON (CP) Developers should start using some imagination to make small communities in Alberta more liveable, the head of the provincial government's economic development branch said Thursday. "Do not make all your decisions on the basis of how much money you can Werner Wenzel told a meeting of the Urban Development In- stitute. "Think in the longer term about giving the people who will be living in your nouses a better quality of life." Mr. Wenzel said the govern- ment is concerned about stopping urban sprawl in Ed- monton and Calgary. He add- ed that without guidance, pop- ulation shifts could put 80 per cent of Albertans into the two cities. He pointed to several government programs, such as encouraging industry to locate outside Calgary and Edmonton, as means of promoting growth of small communities. "We are even considering equalizing the telephone rates around the province so that an industry which locates outside the urban areas will not suffer with communication costs and problems."

The government com- missioned two university medical faculty studies after a storm of protest was raised by supporters of the program. The group said it wants the investigation handled by a person not associated with the medical profession, or by a group of doctors, megavitamin supporters and members of the public.

The paper says it has been unable to get a copy of the report, but said Chief City Commissioner Denis Cole has admitted the report exists. Mr. Cole refused to discuss the contents of the document, said the paper. The paper, quoting an un- named source, said the report was prepared by the law firm of Burnet, Duckworth, and Palmer. The firm was asked to investigate the corporate structure of the land developers and to look at their land holdings in the city and the surrounding area. INCOMPLETE FINDINGS The firm's findings are not yet complete, said the paper, but unnamed sources are quoted as saying the initial draft has been available since January. The paper says the draft contains "a substantial amount of evidence pointing towards a growing monopoly in the land development in- dustry." The report was ordered two years ago by former chief commissioner Geoff Hamilton, said the paper. The newspaper story does not name the companies which are allegedly involved in the near monopoly situation. 2 DAY SALE!
