Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE u, Land purchasing worries Maritimers By HARTWELL DALEY Christian Science Monitor SACKVILLE, N.B. Canadian Maritimers are growing increasingly concerned over the purchase of farm and recreational land by Americans and non resident Canadians. So far only one of the three Maritime provinces, Prince Edward Island, is enforcing strict laws and regulations prohibiting such sales, or at (east, limiting them. What Nova Scotia and New Brunswick may do is not clear, but the sale of Maritime lands at auctions in Boston and New York may be hastening the day when these two provinces will take a hard look and follow Prince Edward Island. The most recent activity to stir concern are advertisements appearing in Boston newspapers announcing the sale, by auction, of two tracts of land near Sackville, N B The land auction bureau of Boston is the selling agency and two tracts of land, one of 100 acres and one of 50 acres, were just recently sold before they were put up for the auction Last year nearly acres changed hands in this way. RELATIVES The sales manager of the land auction bureau, Melvin Bloom, says that many of the people who are interested in buying land in the Maritimes have immigrated from the area and, in many cases, still have relatives in the Maritimes Attempts to forestall this type of sale failed in 1973 when local groups could not agree on their reasons for wanting to prevent acqusition of land by outsiders Whether new auctions will serve to unite. opinion and action remains to be seen. The situation in the three provinces shapes up like this Edward Island's Land Purchase Act limits the purchase of land by outsiders to 10 acres. Anything larger than this must have the approval of the provincial government. Two Americans who have been denied purchase of land have lost an appeal to the PEL Supreme Court and are now awaiting a STILL SELLING FOR LESS STERN'S CUT-RATE FURNITURE 314 3rd St. S. Phone 327-3024 ruling of the Supreme Court of Canada The island government became concerned when it was realized that the land being sold was mainly good farmland or valuable seashore property. Also a trend toward the purchase of farmland by corporate organizations was feared. Scotia, as yet, has no prohibitive laws However, two legislative committees have be.en holding hearings the past few months to inquire into land-use problems and environmental issues. While it is too early to determine if legislation prohibiting or controlling land sales will be introduced, it has been noted that the majority of the briefs submitted to this committee show more concern for the use to which land will be put than for the matter of land ownership. At present approximately 1 million acres of Nova Scotia land is owned by outsiders, mostly Americans. Brunswick shows the least concern over foreign land sales of any of the provinces Premier Richard Hatfield is cool to the idea of laws that single out groups that cannot purchase land New Brunswick also has vast areas that need both recreational and resource development and foreign investment is regarded as necessary if such developments are to take place This is explained on the grounds that Nova Scotians Prince Edward Islanders have many more relatives living in the United States Irish toll now more than ESSO RETAILERS Quality Atlas tires at prices you can't afford to miss!

BELFAST (Reuter) One thousand persons have been killed in Northern Ireland's' sectarian strife since 1969. And this grisly statistic, still not officially conceded by the security forces, is regarded an under-estimate by many in- formed observers who have been keeping their own tallies. The counts maintained by the army and police press offices, who work together to maintain identical figures, put the death toll at 996. Their figures do not, however, include incidents like last month's accident in Armagh when police mistook two plainclothes soldiers for gunmen and shot them dead. Nor do they include victims killed in the Irish republic as a result of the conflict in the north, or the army explosives expert who was killed trying to defuse an Irish Republican Army bomb in central England last year When challenged on their figures, the reply from both army and police is as baffling as the whole Northern Ireland problem: "We only include victims of terrorist action PUBLISHES LIST Last Thursday, the Belfast Evening Telegraph sought to clarify the situation by publishing a list of names The fully-documented list included only tho'se who died in Northern Ireland Since it was published another four persons have been killed, bringing the-toll to Underlying the petty bicker- ing over the figures, however, is the fact that another mile- stone in Irish history has been reached As the Belfast Telegraph said in its preamble to the death list: "Five years on, there is no sign that what has gone before may not occur ONE-TENTH DIE SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuter) Ninety-three children out of every born in this industrial metropolis die before reaching the age of one, according to a survey published by the state secretariat for planning again.

"Death through terror has become as predictable. as inevitable, as the going down of the sun." Penny copper may halt OTTAWA (CP) The master of the Royal Canadian Mint said Tuesday the mint is studying the possibility of using metals other than copper to make pennies. However, G W. Hunter said the mint has not had similar problems to those of the United States mint, which has not been able to keep up with demand for pennies. U S. Treasury Secretary George Shultz banned melting or exporting of copper pennies in an attempt to stop hoarding or destruction to recover the copper content. The reason given for the U S move was the rising price of copper on world markets The board price now is about a pound but Mr. Hunter said the world price would have to be at least 50 a pound before melting would become profitable Canadian prices are con- trolled and now are in the 68- cent to 70-cent range Mr. Hunter does not con- sider the situation alarming because future paid for commitments to deliver copper at a specified future are lower than current spot prices. However, the mint is looking at the possibility of using other metals to make the one-cent coins in case the price for copper continues to rise A possible alternative is an aluminum-magnesium alloy, he said (Esso s suggested retail price SI 095) Installation Extra Offer expires May 31 74 YOU PA Y NO MORE THAN PRICES QUOTED AT PARTICIPATING ESSO RETAILERS.
