The Ottawa Citizen Wed., May 19, 1965 Page 3 CCEA rejects board's arena By Walt Larosta Otiiea tuff writer The Central Canada Exhibition Association last night tossed the Project Planning Associates' civic arena plans back into the lap of board of control. An unimpressed CCEA director Aid. Howard Henry described the arena - convention ball proposal as an $18,000-white elephant "the biggest this city ever saw." The three - month wrangle over what type of civic centre is to be built at Lans- Prcsligc building Board of control is on record as favoring a prestige ice area convention hall as recommended by their advisers, Project Planning Associates, who were paid $18,000 to come up with a civic centre recommendation. The board would forget about the grandstand enlargement. Its building, to cost $5,250,000, would be located in the Adelaide Street-Fifth Avenue area, some distance from the present complex of CCEA buildings. CCEA president Gordon E. Band, after the meeting, said he had been informed by Mayor Reid that board of control had already made its de Sending briefs lo The CCEA, at a suggestion from Aid.. McAuley, will make "its side of the story" known to all aldermen by sending all 20 a brief outlining the CCEA's views. Said Aid. McAuley: "Without a brief, council will have only the recommendation of the board of control before them. They will be familiar with none of the ideas presented here tonight." Aid Parker agreed. Said he: "I bave already been approached by members of council who want to know the facts." Aid. Henry said: "If the board of control's proposals go through, Ottawa will be stuck with the biggest white elephant the city ever saw. "As far as I can see, Project Planners are proposing we build an updated hockey 'Ontario House' urged for Ottawa by city 3Y1LA TORONTO ( Special -Early construction of "a prestige Ontario House" on Elgin Street in Ottawa to accommodate a dozen provincial government branches in the nation's capital was strongly urged by A. B. R. Lawrence (PC Russell) in the Ontario legislature here yesterday. "An ideal site for an Ontario House," Mr. Lawrence stated, "is an Ontario-owned piece of Elgin Street land, only four blocks from the Parliament Buildings."

Laing and his wife were met at Kastrup airport by Hector Allard, Canadian ambassador to Denmark, and his wife and E. Trolle Hansen, a representative of the Danish foreign office. Aa awkward incident occurred when Allard and Trolle Hansen first shook hands with a passenger coming down the gangway from the plane from London.

But before city council considers the plans, the CCEA wants board of control to reconsider the CCEA - favored proposals, to forget bickering about the proposed centre and start afresh.

Estimated cost is about $4,700,000. favored cision to favor the Project Planning Associates recommendation, and would put the proposal to city council at a special meeting Tuesday. Seven councillors can already be counted on to favor the CCEA proposal. Aldermen Ken Workman, John Powers, Howard Henry, Charles Parker, James McAuley, Jules Morin and Claude Bennett are all members of the exhibition board, and all voted for the resolution last night.

There are no provisions or facilities for exhibitions." Director Don Charboneau said the building favored by board of control was too far from the stables to be practical from the farm show standpoint. Said Mr. Charboneau: "I want it known that the men sitting right here have travelled far and wide, not only in Canada and the U.S., and have taken a long, hard look at what types of buildings are required by exhibition boards. "We are as fully competent as Project Planners to judge what our needs are." Said director Lon Campbell: "I want to make it clear that we are not against a hockey rink. We want a hockey rink. The building we favor will offer just as much ice to hockey teams." purchased in the Alta Vista area). "The Ontario government now spends $76,000 annually for 14 rented offices in Ottawa," Mr. Lawrence said. "Some of these offices are most unimpressive and some are mere holes in the wall." Concentration of all Ontario government branches under one roof would make for greater administrative efficiency, Mr. Lawrence emphasized, in serving fast - growing Ottawa, and all of eastern Ontario. It would remind 250,000 persons who live in the shadow of the Peace Tower of their provincial identity, said Mr. Lawrence. 'Mr. Lang' it turned out that the visitor was the wrong person.

Hi gi i cays cited Toronto a 'favorite son' for provincial aid-Reid 1 Mayor Don Reid today blasted the provincial government for giving Metro Toronto "preferential treatment" in matters of financial assistance to municipalities. He said Metro Toronto recently received almost $2 million from the province to keep its tax rate down, more evidence that Ontario's largest municipality enjoys a "favorite son" financial position with the government. Mayor Reid urged delegates at the Canadian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities convention in Windsor to join in "a united attack on Queen's Park" for equal consideration in financial matters. He recalled that Ottawa board of control had to slash its 1965 estimates to keep the tax increase down to 2.35 mills. He claimed most municipalities, with the exception of Metro Toronto, are short of funds to finance major projects and must keep borrowing within limits of assessment. "I claim we deserve the same type of financial assistance that the province gives Metro Toronto.

Defence department informants said, however, that with all its other commitments the army is running short of infantry battalions. For the last five years the 2nd battalion, Canadian Guards, has performed the Parliament Hiil ceremony. But the 2nd Guards are scheduled to join the UN force in Cyprus in September if the UN mandate there is renewed by the security council. The 2nd Guards have never received peace-keeping training. They are under strength and will have to be fleshed out by men from the 1st Guards. Officials said the 1st Guards, with their six months experience in Cyprus, could take on a peace - keeping job for the UN at short notice. In such an event, the changing the guard ceremony, scheduled to continue until Sept. 7, would have to be halted.
