Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta December 4, 1074-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD -19 MAZANKOWSKI Plant costs soar OTTAWA (CP) The cost of the much-troubled heavy water plant in Glace Bay, N.S., is expected to reach million before it opens next year, 10 times the original es- timate. Federal officials said Tues- day an additional million will be provided to Atomic Energy Canada Ltd. for reconstruction of the plant, of- ficially opened in 1966 but yet to produce its first drop of heavy water. L. R. Haywood, a vice- president of AECL, said the additional funds, sought in supplementary spending es- timates for the energy department, will bring federal investment to "about a couple of hundred million" dollars. The province of Nova Scotia also spent about million before AECL took over recon- struction in the fall of 1971. Energy Minister Donald Macdonald, appearing before the Commons miscellaneous estimates committee, said the money for Glace Bay is need- ed to meet higher costs brought on by construction delays and rising prices for materials. The million makes up the lion's share of the extra million the department is seeking in its supplemen- tary spending estimates. MAY START IN YEAR Mr. Macdonald told the committee the government still hopes to have the Glace Bay plant in operation sometime next year, but he declined to be more specific. The Nova Scotia govern- ment took over the plant in late 1966 from Deuterium of Canada Ltd., a private com- pany which had been given aid by the province. After a consultants' report showed substantial additional investment would be needed to put the plant in operation, an agreement Was reached with the federal government. Under the terms, Ottawa puts up the money for the reconstruction and leases the plant until the investment is recouped. The facility then re- turns to provincial control. Consultants said reconstruction was necessary because of technological and construction faults which damaged some of the plant's equipment. Job-seekers find work in Alberta CALGARY (CP) Most job seekers sent from the Vancouver Victoria area un- der a Canada Manpower program appear to have found work in Alberta, Manpower officials say. The Manpower office in Vic- toria began sending un- employed people to Alberta on "exploratory grants" last month and so far about 100 people have come to Alberta to explore employment oppor- tunities. The exploratory grants average per person, says Stan Purdy, Manpower manager in Victoria. Mr. Purdy said there is lit- tle work available in the Van- couver Victoria area while demand for labor is strong in. Alberta. Most of the people sent to Alberta under the program appear to have found work, he said, as only a few have returned to British Columbia. mi n MP's may be unable to unscramble troubled egg system OTTAWA (CP) There is increasing evidence that MPs on the special Commons egg committee will be unable to agree on ways to unscramble the country's troubled egg marketing system. Farmland Progressive Con- servatives on the committee said in a statement Tuesday that the egg hearings should be re-opened before any report is turned in to the Com- mons. And they said they could not agree with a suggestion made by provincial agriculture ministers that the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency be run for the next two years by a powerful new five-man com- mittee. The eight Liberal MPs on the committee are expected to endorse the suggestion. Don Mazankowski author of the statement backed by fellow Conservatives Allan Lawrence (Northumberland- Jack Murta (Lisgar) and Fred McCain said, running CEMA by committee is contrary to the spirit of federal legislation allowing farmers to sell their goods through national marketing agencies. "The control of the egg marketing agency must re- main in the hands of the producers, as was intended by the legislation." Mr. Mazankowski said provincial agriculture ministers had been unable to agree unanimously on setting up such a committee to run CEMA when they met last week. As a result, all the ministers should be called before the Commons committee "to out- line their respective positions and recommendations for a more workable vehicle." CEMA's auditors should also be asked to appear, as well as a three-man manage- ment committee which ran the agency during the summer. His statement follows an an- nouncement that the British Columbia egg marketing board would pull out of the marketing system at the end of next year. It was seen as an preparatory move by the Conservatives to dissociate themselves from the report the special committee will make to the Commons. Mr. Mazankowski said it could take "well into January" before the com- mittee is in a position to recommend any changes in the country's egg marketing system.
