Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, August 7, 1974-THE LETHBRIDGE HEHALD-19 'Pass line halted, U.S. energy hope grows dimmer CRANBROOK (Special) The Regional District of East Kootenay has approved a resolution refusing authoriza- tion for an additional natural gas pipeline through the region because of the "ad- ditional environmental destruction" involved. The decision may delay the construction of a proposed gas pipeline which U S. residents had hoped would ease the pan- gs of a national energy crisis that has closed industries and has been responsible for a nationwide wintertime cool- ing of homes to save fuel The board was sanctioning a recommendation made primarily by its technical planning committee and forwarded by its planning committee. The technical planning com- mittee is comprised of area officials, provincial govern- ment departments involved in land use decisions and the RDEK planner The RDEK has received overtures from two com- panies looking to export natural gas from the north which would be transported to Alberta by the proposed McKenzie pipeline. Alberta Natural Gas now maintains a pipeline through the Crowsnest Pass and into the U S at Kmgsgate. It has proposed paralleling that line with a 42'- inch line to carry more gas to U.S. markets Canadian Arctic Gas is also studying the area and making overtures to the RDEK for a pipeline which would parallel the ANG line in most parts. One exception would be near Mornssey where it would take a different route. MOST NORTHERLY PORT Tuktoyaktuk in the Northwest Territories is Canada's most northern mainland seaport. SERVICE LTD.

Council asks for stockyard TABER council has decided to request CP Rail to extend a rail line spur to the Prairie Livestock yards at 62nd St. on 56th Ave. for public use in loading livestock, or to provide a suitable public livestock loading facility at no cost to the town. Some years ago the existing stock yards on 47th Ave. east of the UGG elevator was partially dismantled leaving no loading station for stockmen Gary Jensen of Prairie Livestock told the council that it has been necessary to load rail cars via cattle-liners, a most un- satisfactory procedure. He has been trying for the past two years to have a rail extension built to his yards which he has offered for public loading use Council referred to Mr Jensen last month a quotation from CP Rail calling for payment of some for extending the spur line However, local opinion is that the railway company should restore a loading facility here at their own expense, having removed the facility which had been used over the years BY THE TIME VOLVO GETS OUT INTO THE WORLD, THE WORST IS OVER. Before a Volvo ever so much as bumps bumpers with another car, we slammed dozens of Volvos into a concrete wall. These crash tests helped us develop a front end that's designed to absorb a fifty mile per hour barrier collision. Before a Volvo will ever have to stop short on the high way, we disconnected a complete set of brakes on a fully-loaded Volvo and accelerated it to sixty miles per hour. It still stopped quickly, because every Volvo has two independent sets of three-wheel disc brakes. (If one should ever fail, the other still gives you SHORT STOP AUTO SERVICE about -80% of your braking power.) Before you'll ever give'er the gas, we gave the Volvo engine the gas for the equivalent of miles at continuous full throttle. It didn't quit. Before you'll ever swerve to avoid a big, bump, the Volvo had to complete miles on our "life expectancy a special test track that combines more wrenching turns ____' and suspension- numbing bumps than you'll probably ever face in a lifetime of driving. And before you'll ever find yourself out in the 538 6th St. S., Lethbridge middle of nowhere, almost every Volvo component that's subject to wear had to take at least three lifetimes of pounding, bumping and shaking on its own test rig. So if you're looking for a car that can take the worst life has to offer, we can offer you something even better. A car that can take the worst Volvo has to offer. VOLVO The District Citizens are key to future plan of Sparwood Hospital SPARWOOD (Special) The B.C. Hospital Insurance Service has asked the board of the Michel Natal hospital to determine the surgical and obstetrical requirements in the Sparwood area Thus progress in planning lor hospital facilities at Sparwood and Elkfcrd now rests squarely on the amount and enthusiasm of citizen par- ticipation. The Michel Natal hospital board, which will become the board of a new Sparwood hospital, has been told by the service that recommendations to proceed with plans will go to the health minister as soon as further information comes from the board.

In the Elkford area, where a diagnostic and treatment centre is to be built after planning with the Sparwood board and the Fernie Memorial Hospital board. Mayor Carl Maartman has been asked to see that a hospital society is formed. Deputy minister of hospital services W. J. Lyle said five to 10 people are needed First they would contact the Fernie hospital board to arrange terms under which ad- ministration for Fernie, Sparwood and Elkford facilities could be shared. Mr Lyle said planning should include such facilities as doctors' offices, x-ray and laboratory facilities, emergency operating area, holding area for three stretchers, offices for visiting consultants, public health and human resources personnel and other community services as may be appropriate. There must be planning for sup- porting services as is appropriate to the operation of the entire complex. Mr. Lyle said the newly es- tablished provincial am- bulance service "will be sup- portive to the principles of shared services GIANT RULER Edward IV of England, who reigned from 1461 to 1483, was about six feet three inches tall and was regarded as a giant in his time.
