Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, August 6, 1970 Generation Of N-Reactors Seen For Canada MU. BERTKAND Speaks Candidly Ws JEAN-GUY CARDINAL Singled Out By KEN KELLY Canadian Press Science Writer OTTAWA (CP) Next year's start-up of the power plant at Quc., is more than just another nuclear power source. Successful functioning will be a further stage in the evolution of what is expected by scientists and engineers to mean a new generation of reactors capable of being built at a capital cost saving of up to 10 per cent. L. K. Haywood, vice-president of Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., Chalk River, Out., nuclear laboratories, visualizes combin- ing Gentilly plant features with a fuel recycling system now being studied at Chalk River. Key elements in the capital cost saving are Gentilly's re- quirement for less heavy water than earlier power reactors and the plant's need for fewer pres- sure channels in the reactor it- self. These combined with re-use of what now is regarded as "spent" radioactive fuel are ex- pected to give a saving that will keep nuclear power competitive with fossil-fuel power a decade from now. The re-cycling of spent fuel by extracting plutonium from it will mean new usefulness for natural uranium fuel from exist- ing nuclear reactors. WILL COMUINE FUEL The plutonium will be com- bined with uranium oxide and inserted in reactors to provide another fuelling charge. Eventu- ally, (lie expectation is that it w.ill be possible to use plulon- ium alone without the addition of uranium oxide. Mr. Haywood says the modifi- cation will not require the kind of costly prototype work that has gone into earlier nuclear pav.'er plants. The Gcntilly plant, on the soulhshore of the St. Lawrence about 10 miles east of Trois-Ri- vieres, Que., is designed to take substantially less heavy water by substituting ordinary water as the medium of heat ex- change. Water will be converted to steam by the nuclear reactor to drive steam turbines which, in turn, power electric generators. In present Canadian nuclear plants, this heat exchange as well as the modification of slow- ing of tlie nuclear reaction are done by heavy water. Gentilly will require some heavy water but only in its present role as moderator of the nuciear reaction. WAS IN CABINET CLEEMONT FERRAND, France (AP) Lucien Lamou- reux, 82, who was finance min- ister when France fell to the Germans in 1940, died Wednes- day after a heart attack at his home in the village of Creuzier- le-Vieux. By DAVE BAZAY QUEBEC (CP) Former premier Jean-Jacques Ber- trand says a major factor in the defeat of liis Union Na- tionale party in Quebec's April 29 general election was undermining of the party's constitutional policy by some of his own cabinet colleagues. In an interview with The Canadian Press lie said three former ministers strayed from the middle-of-the-road policy he followed as did his predecessor, the late premier Daniel Johnson. The men he blamed figure prominently i n speculation over the Union Nationale lead- ership which Mr. Bcrtrand plans to abandon to enable the opposition party to renew it- self. He singled out Marcel Masse, 34, former minister of intergovernmental affairs whose election-campaign com- ments about the possibility of an alliance with the separatist Parti Quebecois caused a hul- labaloo; Mario Beaulieu, 40, former finance minister and an influ- ential party organizer who got the party to campaign in the position of "separation by 1974 unless there is a breakthrough in constitutional n e g o t i a- And Jean-Guy Cardinal, 45, former education minister who battled Mr. Bertrand for the party leadership in 1969 on a platform that included keep- ing the Union Nationale open to everyone including sopara- fets. HE'LL STEP DOWN Mr. Bertrand, 54, a veteran of 22 active years in Quebec politics, spoke candidly sf his efforts to keep a divided party in the fight for political power. In the interview, three months after the once-power- ful party's standing was re- duced to 17 members in the 108-seat national assembly of Quebec, the former premier also made these points: will not lead the party in the next elections, expected in 1974; forecast that separa- tist sentiment and social agi- tation may increase unless economic problems are solved and Ottawa-Quebec skirmish- ing ceases; of Mr. Bertrand's departure as party leader will depend on party views. Mean- while, Mr. Bertrand'intends to lead the UN in a search for "a new leader, a new will not designate a successor, nor influence party policy regarding the constitu- tional issue. Mr. Bertrand said party supporters have the responsi- bility of defining party politics but his experience indicates the UN will not choose to ally itself with the Parti Quebecois nor advocate separatism. PARTY COLLAPSED He had some tough words for his former education min- ister. At one point he said Mr. Cardinal wanted to take the Union Nationale and Quebec 15 to 20 years backwards. Later, he toned this down by saying Mr. Cardinal had changed his style since. Mr. Bertrand bluntly de- scribed his party's election defeat as "the collapse (deba- cle) of the Union although he was confident it can make a comeback. Mora On EDMONTON (CP) A tern porary moratorium on the sal of drilling rights in Alberta was Urged Sales Farmers Hold Back On Taxes TOROOTO (CP) A cam paign by farmers to withholc their municipal taxes has spread across Ontario, a spokesman for the Nationa Farmers' Union said in an in- terview here. But Walter Miller, vice-presi- dent of the union, did not esti- mate how many farmers have refused to pay the tax. The Ontario Federation of Ag- riculture, representing 80 farm organizations, will endorse simi- lar tactics by asking its mem- bers to delay their final 1970 payments unless the govern- ment reacts soon to their de- mands. Jack Hale of Hie federation said that since county boards of education were installed in Jan- uary, 1969, the farmers contrib- ute to education needs for the entire county and in some cases the costs have risen 200 io 400 per cent. The farmers are complaining that they help finance education with taxes on (heir fields and barns while city dwellers are assessed only on (heir homes. The farmers want education levies raised from income or corporation taxes.

The moratorium was sug gested by the Alberta Fish am Game Association and severa other groups attending the meeting sponsored by the de- partment of lands and forests The association said no fur ther drilling rights should be sold by the province until the proposed legislation is present ed to the legislature next year and until wilderness areas are designated. The bill proposed to estab- lish wilderness areas of "mod- est size" in various parts of the province to preserve their nat- ural beauty and to protect them from development. The Alberta Federation of Labor attacked one clause in the proposal which would allow pipelines in the areas where the government had earlier made a commitment to allow resource development. The fed- eration said there s h o u 1 d be "absolutely no sntry to or dis- position of land in any wilder- ness area because of prior commitments or any other rea- on." "How can the government be sincere about protecting wild- erness areas when it allows loopholes in the The fish and game associa- Jon said it realizes money vould be needed to buy back cases or permits for' drilling in lesignatcd wilderness areas, >ut the land could bo traded or another parcel of crown and outside designated areas. B. R. Stromslcdt of the Ed- nonton chapter of the Alberta Vilderncss Association said all nliusion of wilderness areas must be stopped.
