DISTRICT RDEK pollution views falling on deaf ears Turning sod to land planes On hand to break ground for a new municipal air- port four miles northwest of Taber are Taber Mayor Ar- thur Avery; Taber MD Reeve Clarence Cy Mc- Andrews of the department of Ray Huene of the department of tourism; Tom McGreer of the depart- ment of highways; and Stubb Ross, president of Time Air Ltd. of Lethbridge. KATAL (HNS) for- ests and water resources minis- ter Robert A. Williams agrees with the Regional District of East Kootenay that regional dis- tricts "should express their views concerning pollution con- trol penriit applications from a land-use point of view." He made the statement in a letter. It was read at a recent meeting of the RDEK board. He also said amendments to the pollution control act, to al- low notice of regional district objections to applications to the pollution control branch, would have to wait until the fall ses- sion of the legislature. The RDEK has long main- tained that its objections to ap- plications submitted to the PC branch should be heard, if not on the basis of land use, then on the basis that the regional dis- trict can speak for the rights of its constituents in an area where considerable expertise is required to make a submission. It has continued to file any objections it may have but they have always been based strictly on pollution grounds so that they would meet the require- ments of the pollution control act. Until recently, none of the board's objections have been considered. Mr. Williams says the amendments required to the PC act could not be passed dur- ing the present session. he said in the letter, "I would expect that the objections put forward by the regional district will receive full attention under the pollu- tion control act." The board received a letter from Walter Raudsepp, chair- man of the pollution control board, saying an objection of the RDEK to an application of George Deck in InVermere is being considered.
