Alberta NDP Leader Grant Notley told the meeting Pre- mier Harry Strom's Social Credit government has shown an "utter disregard" for the wishes of Albertans In the cre- ation of wilderness areas and resource development. "The government has been so busy trying to satisfy the ravenous appetitles of multi-na- tional corporations for our nat- ural resources they have lost all sight of the fulure, all slghl of the natural beauty of Alber- ta, all sight of the needs of oui people."
