In the current energy con- frontation Mr. Lewis ignores Energy measures demanded TORONTO En- vironmental groups and concerned citizens across the country have banded together to demand government action on energy says Dr. Donald Chant Dr. president of Pollution Probe and a Univer- sity of Toronto told a news conference Wednesday that government has put the responsibility on individuals and has ignored what govern- ment can do He read a statement sup- ported by 100 environmental groups across Canada The group presented a list of 26 measures it said govern- ment can take to alleviate the energy crisis. Dr Chant said governments appear to be assuming the crisis is a short-term problem PROBLEM PERSISTS are suppbsed to believe that once the situation in the Middle East is resolved and the Arab states start shipping oil we can return to our hoggish consumption said Dr Chant Dr. Chant said that North with seven per cent of the world's con- sumes 40 per cent of the energy In producing the list of pos- sible government Dr. Chant said would be necessary. The list includes recommen- dations to put a special on gas-guzzling new cars and establishing levels of horsepower. Improved building codes were also necessary to re- quire better insulation It was also suggested that a consumer product review board be established to approve new products on the basis of their energy con- sumption Air routes speedup proposed CALGARY Calgary's Transportation and Development Authority has asked Transport Minister Jean Marchand to ratify new scheduled air routes with the United States now and settle differences over charter routes later. Jack chairman of the says in a telegram to the minister that Calgary's petroleum industry relies heavily on scheduled air services and this should rate as a paramount issue in view of the energy situation. scheduled market is oriented toward our business community and is therefore of greater importance than the tourist-oriented charter An agreement on scheduled routes was drafted between the two countries Sept 11 but there have been difficulties in negotiations on charter routes Under the Calgary is to obtain new routes to San Los Las New Fort Anchorage and Fairbanks. The new routes are to be im- plemented over the next five years and local officials have stressed the need for quick introduction of links between Calgary and major U.S. cities Mr Pierce said in his telegram if separate approval of the scheduled agreement is not possible and concessions must be they should relate strictly to air charter issues and not scheduled routes. HARD TO PARK The largest car ever built was the Bugatti Royale of which only six were made. They measured more than 22 feet in length and the hood alone was seven feet long. the fact that if federal Energy Minister Donald Macdonald is the most hated man as far as the so-called 'oil barons' are then Mr. Lougheed is certainly in second place. So in the House of Commons and up and down the country Lewis taunts the Alberta premier by calling him and suggests that Mr. Lougheed and the Alberta people are allowing those mysterious multi-national corporations to rip-off the Canadian people. In a way it's all a matter of politics and forget about fight or truth or fact or fiction. WRITTEN OFF The NDP has written off Al- berta as far as federally and just as it has written off the province of Quebec. In the last federal election the NDP failed dismally to elect even one MP and in the provincial election managed to capture only one out of 75 that now held by provin- cial NDP leader Grant Notley. the Liberals failed to elect any representatives federally or they did pick up a full 25 per cent of the popular vote in Oc- tober 1972 and it was the dis- tribution of those votes that held them back from sendinc MPs to Ottawa. Ever since the last federal election when the NDP had its corporate bums issue it has been looking for another similar platform on which to win seats in Central Canada and make voters forget that for more than one year it has been propping up the minority Liberal government. Mr. as he indicated in his speech in Winnipeg earlier this believes he has found that issue in the so-called rip-offs by the oil barons so in the one Western province which has totally rejected the New Democratic Party's socialist philosophy in any shape or form. It is essential for Mr. Lewis' party to gain seats in Central Canada and if he can do that by talking about and greedy Alber- tans and about the and gas corporations which have created their own big he will do it IGNORES POLICIES The federal party will readi- ly ignore the advanced social policies instituted by Mr Lougheed's government in its two-year reign policies which in some cases rival those of neighboring NDP- government British Saskatchewan and Manitoba. If it is necessary in order to gain support and seats in Cen- tral Canada the federal party is also quite willing to see its one MLA in go down to defeat. Mr. Notley is an energetic and intelligent MLA but both he and the federal party know that the New Democrats aren't going anywhere in Alberta as long as Mr. Lougheed's which ended the 35-year-old rule of the Social Credit Par- is still ascending in pop- ularity. What's there will al- ways be a comfortable job on the party's payroll in Ottawa awaiting Mr. Notley should he go down to defeat in the Lougheed sweep predicted by various polls when the next provincial election comes around. So all m all Alberta has be- come a convenient pawn for the NDP in its current cam- paign to build itself up a whirlwind election issue with which to or at least in Central Canada as far as Central Canada is the energy crisis suddenly abates it will be interesting to see whether Mr. Lewis will still attempt to con- tinue with his present cam- paign or quickly find another issue and whipping boy For generations the Russians made a vodka from potato spirits. we introduce to Canada a vodka which is a delicate blend of fine grain and potato spirits.
