What Mr. Davis has appar- done is hardened the Al- berta resolve to raise natural gas prices come hell or the Canadian constitution. Galling to westerners was talk in the Ontario legislature of legal action against Alber- ta for constitutional'' plans to charge Ontario high- er prices than Alberta for gas. The legal action was dis- cretely swept under the rug after consideration that per- haps there have been "un- constitutional" things like dis- criminatory freight rates on j Ihe books for years. 1 Mr. Davis' claims to ihe 1 Canadian Petroleum Associa- I t.on meeting at Calgary that j Ontario has played a signili- i cast role in the development j of western energy were poppy i cork. j The federal government i and 1hc United States have 1 pteyod a sienificant role in 1 iu-.-.crn 'rcvclopracnt. not On- i lario despite that province's simple financial and Icchnolo- I resources. i Premier said he i succcslrd 1o Premier Davis perhaps Ontario direct fomc of its krow-how to help solve the problems in dc- vrlopmrnt of WTC petroleum reserves of the Athabasca and Peace River oil sands The request apparently brought a ho hum response irom Mr. Davis. The nalural gas issue with one province threatening to withhold energy from an- other province for the right price is assuming the pro- portions of a classical consti- tutional confrontation. Added to the spat is the personal flambuoyancy clash between the two Progressive Conservative premiers. The great air show at the Edmonton airport with Premier Lougheed in an Al- berta Forestry helicopter flut- tering down on Premier Dav- is in his Ontario government jet wasn't lost on observers who quickly noted the status confrontation. The airport meeting, to the whirrr of movie cameras, possibly forecasts a meeting of the two premiers when na- tional Conservative leader Robert Stanficld's job conies up for grabs. There is a certain jockeying for position evident. It WES a eroit assumption or, Mr. par; that Al- berta might withl-pl.l a ne- ural jjas price increase un- Ii3 a rational cre-gy confer- ence is staged. Premier Lougheed, at a news conference the nrxl rooming, shal fet nc'Jon down in no time flat. Al- berta price increase is going ahead regardless of the noises from Mr. Davis, said Premier Louphecd. Natural gas royalties "will be announced in the "biter part of the summer hr said. And Ihc new two- price system for natural will be outlined during the "List ouarlcr of 1074 and pos- sibly durinc the latter slocc-s of the fall session ol the legislature. scrunlv ciorv whcrr becoming a concern to gov- ernments, the Alberta speak- er of the assembly, Gerry Amerongen. says he has un- der consideration a "panic button" that would ring at the police station. The button would be located at the speaker's desk for quick use in the event of a disturbance in the house. The button is topical in light of a recent fist fight in the Nova Scotia legislature. Mr. Amerongen says it shouldn't be widely publi- cized, but the Alberta legis- lature is still relatively "wide open'1 as far as security goes. At a conference of speakers last year, he said, the most security conscious assemblies were the House of Commons in Ottawa ard the Quebec assembly, '-followed by On- tario." Mr. Amerongen said unlike most provinces. Quebec cab- inet ministers are not sup- psscd to go anywhere with- out a security guard. The last security incident z'. the Alberta legislature took place during an anti-war demonstration last year when r. girl demonstrator foil the finpcr of a security oifsccr v.ho was holding the doors of the bisiMing shut on Jhc pro- Jrslors. Mr. Amcrongm recalled an- other incident where a liWlc lady in the public kept throw sng prpcr d.df at the premier. She'd vanished h> the time scrurily officials alerted 1o the incideiil. Against Soaring Prices (WASP) and Protest Outrage- ous Rising Costs (PORC) isn't getting much of a hear- ing here and perhaps for good reason. Agriculture Minister Hugh Horner claims food takes a smaller part oi' the consumer dollar than it did a decade ago and the protesters should do their homework. He points to the March is- sue of the Calgary Livestock Market Journal which prim- ed United States figures showing that Americans (and Canadians eat similarity) eat better today than they did in recent years. Since i'J65 retail food prices have risen an average of 33 per cent while per capita in- come is up almost twice that per cent. In 1962 Americans con- sumed 88 pounds of beef a year per capita, while today thc-y eat 118 pounds of beef aer capita. More sex and less violence is the conclusion of the chair- man of the legislature com- nuttec on censorship. Ernie Jamissi (PC-St Albert) says although his committee pre- the legislature with a report last year, his research into the censorship issue con- tinues. A threat of government- imposed arbitration in a four- week rural teachers' dispute failed to materialize at' mid- night Sunday. Labor Minster Bert Hohol indicated Saturday he would direct a final settlement if voluntary agreement wasn't reached between teachers and trustees by the Sunday deadline. Teacher cornmmkations officer Mel Spacfcman said today no government inter- vention was made during the weekend. He said it is not known if mediation talks will resume this week. Teachers in 18 Southern Alberta school districts struck March 12 2nd remain- ed off the job until ordered back to the classroom April 2 by Dr. Hohol. Agreement over 1973 con- tract proposals has still not been reached between teach- ers and the Southern Alberta School Authorities Associa- tion. Rural teachers have been without a contract since Sep- tember of last vear. The most successful oce- day fund raising canvass in the history of the "Cancer blitz in Lethbridge was accomplished on Sun- day. The door-to-door residential blitz grossed with one residential area still to report and mail-ins from residents not home yesterday expected over the next two weeks. The cancer society's res- idential goal, including the daffodil campaign is S15.000. The daffodil take from 'last week has not been tabulated but only 80 of dozen daffodils were not sold. E. S. P.
