Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ap.l IO, IMS nEnAlU issue comes to a head WASHINGTON (CP) A vet- eran member of the House of Representatives said today he has asked Interior Secretary Rogers C. B. Morton to "begin c o-operative environmental studies" Canada on the possibility of moving Alaskan oil to a Midwest market through a Canadian pipeline. Representative Les Aspin, a Democrat whose Wisconsin con- stituency would benefit more from the Canadian route than from the proposed trans-Alaska line, said in a statement that specific environmental and social studies of a pipeline in Canada currently are being con- ducted." "There is no doubt in my mind that as the evidence ac- cumulates more and mare members of Congress will be- come convinced that a Cana- dian alternative is the best solu- tion for supplying the oil needs of the United States, particu- larly the East and Aspin said. Aspin was replying to sugges- tions made in recent subcom- mittee hearings that no pipeline studies had been done on a pro- posed route down the Mack- enzie River valley through Ed- monton. "The 119 studies are part of a three-year study un- dertaken by Canada's depart- ment of energy, mines and re- Aspin said, "Now that the pipeline issue is coming to a head, the results of 54 of the studies which should be completed by July will be an important factor in any decision congress makes." With pipe already stacked and supertarkcrs under con- struction, the Alaskan route was stalled recently when the courts ruled that it would require a right-of-way in excess of the 54-foot limit provided for in law. The pipeline requires 146-foot widths. Having gone through the high- est courts in the U.S. on the right-of-way issue, the pipeline now is back in Congress where a decision will not be subject to judicial review. However, no matter how Con- gress rules on the right-of-way question, still to be settled is the question of whether Mor- ton's statement on environmen- tal impact meets the standards of the national Environmental Policy Act. Defeated won't get gov't appointments OTTAWA (CP) Defeated Liberal candidates may face a distinct disadvantage in gaining government appointments be- cause of the publicity given to those already employed in the wake of the Oct. 30 general election. Sources say the government is expected to shy away from any further appointments for defeated candidates unless there are "exceptional quali- fications." One minister said that additional government jobs for candidates could lead to un- necessary embarrassments, "since the opposition seems de- termined to keep pecking away at this." The latest peck came from' Stanley Knowles peg North who recently in the House to propose the following motion: "That this House request the government to table a list of all Liberal candidates defeated in the last election who have not yet been appointed to govern- ment positions, together a list of the positions to which they will be appointed." As could be expected, the mo- tion did not get the required! unanimous consent, but the po- litical point had already been scored. GOT. LIST And prior to this, John Rey- nolds Delta) asked for, and received, a list of all former MPs who now hold government jobs, while Robert C. Coates Cumberland-Colchester North) was successfully demanding a list of all defeated Liberal can- didates now in government sen-ice. While the combined lists total only 15. sources say Prime Min- ister Trudeau has suggested to his ministers that his total not be allowed to grow without good reason. Mr. Trudeau himself has two' former MPs in his office, both in the S30.000 to salary range. Martin O'Cpnnell, his principle secretary, is a former labor minister, while John Rob- erts is a former parliamentary secretary to the minister of re- gional economic expansion. Mr. Roberts was the Liberal MP for Yorfc-Simcoe in the last Parlia- ment, and he now is Mr. Trudeau's Program Secretary. BEST TO BENSON The best-paying appointment went to Edgar Benson, former finance and defence minister, who receives between and as president of the Canadian transport commission. He did not run in last year's election. Paul Gervais, Liberal MP for Sherbrooke in the last Parlia ment, now is a Quebec Superior Court judge. His salary is ?38.000.
