Sell-off debate to be held Monday By GARY MASON Sun Victoria Bureau VICTORIA An emergency debate on the government's privatization plans will begin Monday, following a rare ruling by the Speaker of the provincial legislature. For the first time in 10 years, the Speaker ruled Wednesday that an NDP request for an urgent debate was valid, and that other matters could be adjourned so debate on the contentious issue REYNOLDS could begin immediately. The government and the New Democratic Party agreed to delay the debate until Monday afternoon, however, so Premier Bill Vander Zalm can be in attendance. The premier, in Toronto for a two-day first ministers' conference and expected back on Friday, said early today that while he doesn't believe a one-hour emergency debate on his government's privatization plans is necessary, Wednesday's rare ruling will give the opposition "an opportunity to debate it." Vander Zalm also said he doubted whether the NDP will have any "surprises" in store for the government.

Washington state police were examining today a 1977 Ford van found late Wednesday in a Bellingham parking lot for clues to the gunshot slaying of a young Saanich woman and the disappearance of her boyfriend.

WE HIT THE SLOPES AS SKI FUN BEGINS THE SKI SEASON starts today at Whistler with the opening of Blackcomb and Whistler in time for U.S. Thanksgiving. And it also heralds the beginning of The Vancouver Sun's ski coverage. Friday, Sun outdoors writer Larry Emrick will report on the opening with special emphasis on Blackcomb's $25 million expansion of lifts and facilities and Whistler's improvement in runs and services. Today on page D4, outdoors columnist Scott Simpson reports Toronto hit first Canadian Press TORONTO Striking Air Canada groundworkers brought chaos to Pearson International Airport today, forcing cancellation of the company's morning flights and leaving passengers pushing frantically to find space on other airlines. Terminal 2, which handles all Air Canada flights, was virtually deserted and Terminal 1 already in disarray with renovations was crowded with people trying to find , alternative flights as ground-workers, who walked out at 3 a.m., were promptly locked out by the airline. Up to 15,000 passengers normally arrive or leave Toronto daily on Air Canada flights, company spokesman Brock Stewart said. The airport handles up to 50 per cent of all pas- ' sengers flying in Canada. About 30 Air Canada flights originating in Toronto were cancelled, including the 6 a.m. flight to Vancouver. It was not immediately known if passengers on that flight switched to other airlines "but airlines do normally honor each other's tickets in a strike situation," Air Canada spokesman Henry Thow said in Vancouver. The walkout also affected Toronto-bound flights from Vancouver. Two morning flights experienced short delays before leaving Vancouver International Airport while two afternoon flights were cancelled because the aircraft that would have been used were delayed in Toronto. Passengers from the two cancelled flights were transferred to Canadian Airlines International flights. Air B.C., a subsidiary of Air Canada, is not involved in the current contract dispute, Thow said. Stewart said any Air Canada groundworker who refuses to work a shift won't be allowed to return until the strike is settled. Air Canada will try to maintain some service using management as groundworkers during the strike, he said.
