Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Wednesday, Augusl 18, 1971 Louglieed promises vigorous role to promote, protect oil markets CAHJAHY (CTM A Pro- gressive Conservative govern- ment in Alberta would lake "a rnuch more vigorous role" in promoting and protecting mar- kets for the province's petro- leum products, leader Peter Loughced said Tuesday. He declined to specify where the Social Credit government had fallen down, but told a news conference the Conserva- tives reject the position that the federal government can ne- gotiate export agreements without provincial consultation.

Mr. Louglieed said there would be no net radiation in taxes, just relocation. The removal o[ the education tax would also give municipal- ities more room in arranging their own revenues wilhout fear of putting a high burden on their residents. The Conservatives rejecled a sales lax as undesirable, he said, because it would have the same effect on those with fixed incomes as on those who arc more able to pay. The tax alterations would in- clude incentives to industries with a high rate of employ- ment, such as manufacturing and service companies. These changes are necessary because the current administra- tion is merely coasting on ils natural resources revenue and not looking toward indust rial growlh. The Conservatives would es- tablish a million Alberta opportunitv fund to aid second- ary industry with emphasis on small centres, community in- volvemenl and labor inten- sive projects. The Conservatives would also look at federal provin- cial relations "to alter the pres- ent isolationist altitude" of the Social Credit government. A ministry of inter govern- ment affairs would be created and Hie. province would push '01 direct representation on the Bank of Canada board of gov- ernors. increased co-operation among Prairie Piwmces would be sought and efforts would be made lo injure areas of fed- eral and provincial jurisdiction, as laid down in the constitu- tion, would be respected. On internal rustlers, they would form a list of planned programs with education and public health on liie lop follow- ed by retraining pro grams nnd preventive welfare and pol- lution to be reviewed by the public before any moves are made to implement them.

The latest threat to the worrns which are munching thousands of acres of rape- seed in the prairie provinces may be their own peers a type of insect that lays its eggs on the worms in a process that eventually kills the worms. Dong England of the Saskat- chewan agriculture department in Prince Albert said reports of the flies killing the worms had been received by agricul- t u r a 1 representatives in the Shellbrook area. These reports had not been confirmed but the news was he said. Also encouraged Tuesday was the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool which said intensive use of the chemical lannate. a substitute foi the banned DDT, has prov- ed effective against the worms. It noted, however, that the worms may feed into early Sep- tember and that crops would have to be watched for new out- for the Tri-City j breaks.

Newspaper ban rapped WASHINGTON CAP) Pfo- hibiling newspapers from own- ig cable television franchises in the cities where they publish is discriminatory and will only "impede the development of ca- ble's most intriguing potentiali- the American Newspaper Publishers Association asserted Monday. The ANPA presented its view in a reply to the Federal Com- munications Commission, which is looking into the desirability of imposing such a restriction. The ANPA argued that, rather than stifling development of the cable medium, news- papers had the means and the incentive "to make a significant contribution to the infoiTnation explosion augured by the emerging cable technology" and "to fosler the development of electronic information s e r v- ices."
