Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Nixon may hike ail import quota WASHINGTON (AP) Pres- ident Nixon is expected to issue his energy message to Congress this week and it appears likely he will permit increased oil imports under a new system of tariffs. Top administration energy of- ficials flew to a symposium on energy issue with representa- tives of industry and environ- ment groups ir the Bahamas during the weekend, but there was no public briefing ou the forthcoming message. Treasury Secretary George Shultz, one of the president's three energy counsellors and the obvious specialist on oil, addressed the symposium but carefully avoided discussing the coming policies. Shultz told the group Friday Nixon had not yet decided on the available options. But another administration sourte indicated that the ad- ministration is still moving in the direction of adopting a tar- iff system to increase oil im- ports. LIKELY KEEP QUOTAS Despite some speculation that the present quota system by which oil imports now are allo- cated will be scrapped, it is considered more likely that the quota syster" will be continued. Oil imports in addition to the quota limits would be permitted upon payment of an import fee which would probably be higher for finished petroleum products than for crude oil. The purpose would be to en- courage construction of refin- eries in the United States rather than abroad. The administration had also considered, as an alternative, the idea of auctioning off addi- tional import permits to the highest bidders, but there has been little mention of this idea lately. It lost much of its appeal when world oil prices began surpassing those of U.S. domes- tic oil. In addition, well informed sources have said the president might call for increased leasing of federal off-shore areas for oil and gas production, most likely emphasizing the of Mexico and the waters off Alaska. But the interior department, with no public announcement, began paving the way last March 30 for the resumption of oil operations in waters off Santa Barbara, Calif., which were previously proposed as a federal oil-free sanctuary. Burning Rectal Itch Relieved In Minutes One of the most common af- flictions is a condition known as "Itching Piles." It is most embarrassing for the sufferer during the day and especially aggravating at night. If you want satisfactory good news. A renowned research laboratory has found a unique healinff substance with, the ability to promptly relieve the burning itch. and. pain. It actually shrinks hemorrhoids. This substance has been shown to produce a most effective rate of healing. Its germ-killing properties also help prevent infection. In one hemorrhoid case after another "very striking improvement" was reported. TKs improvement was main- tained in cases where clinical observations were continued over a period of many months. Furthermore, these tests and observations were made on patients with a wide variety of hemorrhoidal conditions. AH this was accomplished by a healing substance (Bio- bjr a world-renowned research in- stitution. This substance is now obtainable in ointment or suppository form known as Preparation H.

Views not adequately presented Citizens second best at hearings By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) the public get a fair shake from the Canadian transport commis- sion? Legislation creating the com- rndssion in 1967 mentions protee tion of the public interest as one duty of the regulatory body. But, some federal MPs sug- gest the ordinary citizen comes out second best at commission hearings. And a recent government pol- icy paper on communications says the views of the public are not adequately presented to the commission on tele- communications issues. The transport commission is perhaps a more obvious target for parliamentary criticism than other federal regulatory agencies. Reduction of rail pas- senger service and telephone rate increases have a direct im- pact on ordinary consumers. And some of the criticism of the commission could equally well apply to other boards. CRITICIZE INCREASES But, there appears to be a growing feeling in Parliament that the consumer's point of view must be better repre- sented at commission hearings. The most recent round of at- tacks came after the commis- sion's decision to permit in- creases in Bell Canada tele- phone rates. The regulatory agency gave Bell almost all the increases it sought. The company had asked for tariff increases which would have given it an additional million throughout 1973 and it received a boost equivalent to million. This increase was suspended for 90 days by Communications Minister Gerard Pelletier after an outcry in the Commons led by New Democratic Leader Da- vid Lewis. Mr. Lewis and the Commons transport committee both urged the suspension. Mr. Lewis said it was tone to stop Bell's "gouging" of the public. The government paper on communications, released by Mr. Pelletier has suggested re- moving the communications functions from the transport commission and placing them under a new communications agency. The government paper said it no longer makes sense to com- bine communications matters with transportation functions in one agency. The paper also said con- sumers have had a hard time getting their message across to i he commission. The need for legal and eco- nomic specialists to deal with complex matters before the commission tended to shut out the ordinary consumer. E. J. Benson, commission president, told the Commons transport committee recently: "In some cases where (he transport commission is sitting as a court in a public hearing, it is difficult for individuals to appear before the commission, and have resources to do analysis and present a case." But, he said some representa- tives of the public do attend. The interests of the public were defended by provincial govern- ments. Liberal Paul McRae (Fort William) said that "regulatory bodies tend to think like She people they regulate." This was partly due to the fact that technical help hired by the commission usually came from industries that were being regulated. REPRESENT CONSUMER Mr. McRae suggested the government should appoint con sumer advocates who would de- fend the public interest at com- mission hearings. The National Transportation Act which set up thex commis- sion may be another i'actor. Robert Chodos, author of Right of Way: Passenger Trains for Canada's Future, says the act is slanted in liver of economic competition. "If transportation in Canada is to make sense, then trans- portation decisions will have to be made on the basis of public need, not on the basis of politi- cal expediency or of monetary and fiscal Mr. Chodos says. Cartaintly, the preamble to the act stresses economy and Emission Control Time Table 100% 80% 60% 40% 20% Q Hydrocarbons 0Carbon Monoxide Nitrogen Oxidet Uncontrolled 1968 1970 1972 1973 1975 1976 Canada follmvs U.S. Canada has followed the United Stales in setting a time table for reducing exhaust emissions. It is a sliding scale to 1975-76 when the standards call for a 97-per- cent reduction in hydrocarbons, 96 per cent in carbon monoxides and 93 per cent of nitrogen oxides in 1976, efficiency and competition be- tween methods of trans- portation. Mr. Chodos recommends tha the act be rewritten to empha- size the needs of the peopte. Mr. Benson and his predeces- sor J. Pickersgill have said the commission allowed lew ap- plications for abandonment of rail passenger servicas. But there is still smouldering resentment among MPs from areas where passenger services were abandoned, notably New- foundland and southwestern On- tario. The commission said abandonment was permitted be- cause there was adequate al- ternative transportation. But one MP from south- western Ontario, Perrin Beatty remains uncon- vinced. At a recent Commons trans- port committee meeting, he said: "We are going to have to give serious consideration to the role of the transport commission and whether in fact the public interest is being served."

Tuesday, April 17, 1973 THE HERAL0 Industry, needs leadership role TORONTO (CP) Industry must be prepared to assume leadership in developing the re- lationship fcttween government and the private sector, says John C. Lockwood, new presi- dent of the Grocery Manufactur- ers of Canada. Mr. Lockwood, president of Lever Bros. Ltd. of Toronto, would like to see advisory groups set up which would in- clude industry representatives to act as consultants to govern- ments. "For quite some time, indus- try has found itself in the posi- tion of being the passive recipi- ent of more control and more regulation issuing from govern- he said. "At the very least, we can at- tempt to involve ourselves in an increasingly active and con- structive way with government policy makers." Ideally, consultation would take place when government de- partments are considering legis- lation. "But I'm not sure government departments subscribe to the idea of talking before they act. They seem to feel that whatever we tell them would simply be biased in favor of the industry. "That's not really true. As manufacturers ofconsumer goods we have to be aware of all the interests in the market- place." Mr. Lockwood said he feels the consumer and the manufac- turer have the same fundamen- t a 1 want to make the products the consumer wants. The grocery sasociation has worked to develop communica- tion with consumers and con sumet groups. Mr. Lockwood has proposed that his associa- tion consider meetings with the Consumers Association of Can- ada. Mr. Lockwood believes there is more room for consultation to lessen friction between manu- facturers and distributors.
