Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 44 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, August 21, 974 A major difference Contrasts are inevitable when the Winnipeg Mass- ed Pipe and Drum Band parades. Joan Albanese, a five-foot-tall piper from Thunder Bay, jokes with drum major Bob Comrie of Saskatoon who is seven-fopt- nine was busby. The band was appearing at the CNE in Toronto. Beaufort Sea drilling may start in 1976 OTTAWA (CP) Off-shore drilling for oil and gas in the Beaufort Sea probably will be permitted by 1976, the northern affairs department says in the current edition of its magazine Dialogue North. "But millions of dollars of research will be needed before offshore exploration can the magazine said in an edition devoted entirely to offshore operations in the Canadian Arctic. It was only a few months ago that a Western Arctic native Committee for the Original People's Entitlement public confidential government documents showing that cabinet had given its approval in principle to offshore drilling in the Beaufort Sea. COPE expressed alarm, saying the lack of research into environmental and other research exposed the Arctic to harmful oil spills. It also accused the government of withholding information about drilling plans from concerned northerners. The magazine concedes that the subject "had been top se- cret" until COPE issued its news release last winter. Dialogue North owes a debt of gratitude to COPE for making this issue on offshore drilling said the department in the special edition. But the department also conceded "it was not possible to include a section on what will happen when oil spills occur in the Beaufort Sea or in the Arctic Basin." "That subject is a delicate one and has not been cleared for public discussion at official the magazine continued. "It is anticipated that an oil spill edition will be published after the first major spill oc- curs in Arctic offshore waters." The magazine is being dis- tributed free of charge to northern communities which will be affected by offshore drilling. Public meetings also are scheduled in the communities to explain offshore developments and the environmental studies to be conducted. Imperial Oil has been a pio- neer in Arctic offshore drilling. Its plans for offshore drilling from artificial islands in the Beaufort were approved two years ago. Because the drilling was done from a rig in water less than 10 feet deep, the northern affairs department ruled it should be classified as a land-use operation. In reports to the department on its artificial islands oper- ations, Imperial said construction of the island showed only "minor and localized disturbance." U.S. wheat for Egypt WASHINGTON (Reuter) The United States is shipping tons of wheat to Egypt in the first three months of the 1975 financial year which began on July 1, U.S. state department officials said here. The shipment is being made under a food-for- peace agreement in which Egypt will repay the million cost of the wheat over 20 years at an interest rate of three per cent.
