On index, industrials were Ottawa Mulls Oil Quotas CALGARY (CP) The fed- eral government is giving ser- ious consideration to oil import quotas as a method of protect- ing Western Canadian produc- ers, Albert Premier Harry Strom said here. The premier, who first.sug- gest import restrictions in March, 1969, said in an inter- view that Prime Minister Tru- deau has been "favorably im- pressed" by Alberta's case for quotas. Any restrictions should be "realistic so that Western Can- ada can have equal or better oil sales. We couldn't possible consider less than this." NEW ATTENTION Crude oil imports -received new attention last week when the Exchequer Court of Can- ada ruled unconstitutional the National Energy Board policy which restricts foreign crude oil to the area east of the Ot- tawa yalley. The area wesS of the valley has been served by Canadian production since when the policy was formed, but the court ruling will allow cheap- er, foreign crude and refined products into the area, cutting the demand for. Canadian oil. Mr. Strom said any move to restrict foreign oil should also clarify the situation regarding movement of oil across the Ot- tawa valley and make the country's oil import policy dear to the United States. Canadian exports of crude oil to the mid-west United States have been restricted by the U.S. government, to the dis- tress of Canadian producers. down .26 to 157.79, OLDS to 155.29, base metals .06 to 94.32 and western oils .09 to 160.55.
