NATAL (I1NS) Importance of maintaining land in the Kilt valley for agricultural use is one of the main reasons that Regional Planner Alfred Miller is sticking to his guns on the proposed Elk Valley zoning bylaw. Mr. Miller points out that man's most important activity is the production of food energy, or agriculture. "To pro- duce food energy we have to sustain all our agricultural he said. Since the middle of the last century, when the white man came to the East Kootenay, ur- banization has increased stead- ily in area and in speed, and "I dare say that 25 per cent cf the agricultural land in the East Kootenay has been lost forever for use in food produc- Mr. Miller states. Now we have a Land Use In- ventory Map, prepared by ARA, which gives us a very gocd idea how much land there is left which has agricultural use potential and I am of the opinion that this land should be preserved at all cost for agri- cultural use only, he asserts. Urbanization has been accom panied by misuse of land, he said, mainly because the re suits of misuse are not eviden immediately, but are easil; passed on to new generations The shifting of responsibilitj from one to the next genera tion is exactly what makes us suffer today, the lack of a sense of responsibility of the previous the unrestricted pattern of life of the past, thi misuse of land, and the frcc- for-all consumption of what there is to consume. Mr. Miller feels so strongly on the matter that he would personally even go so far 33 to ask for expropriation o! the land if thi owner docs not use it (or agricultural purposes, but lie knows such measures would not be taken because the consequences are far away. The eventual result he be- lieves will be legislation which Daughter sings with mother FORT M A C LEOD (Special The only mother and daugh ter combination in the 50-yoice Lethbridge Symphony Choir is Mrs. Pat Leslie and her 14 year-old daughter, Cathy ol Fort Macleod.

Land of today is not a com- modity anymore which can he of at random. Land is a responsibility. Mi-. Miller contends. It must be preserved for the common good, "and if we to have any land left for future generations, then we have to start protecting it now." Large acreage restrictions, such ss Ihoso in the proposed Klk Valley bylaw arc only a holding restriction which can operate until a belter idea of the ecology of our environment will allow correct and proper land use for any particular piece of land. Mr. Miller contends that no argument put forward by the residents of the Elk Valley has been valid enougli on the basis of good planning principles to lead him to change his recom- mendation to the Regional Dis- trict of Kast Koolcnay board to the bylav.'. If the people Ihemsclves do not like the bylaw, or if their elected representatives want to change it, that's fine. But pro- fessionally, Mr. Miller can not retreat from his position, which he still feels lo be Ihe proper one. ATTENTION FARMERS!

We started out with a desire io fill a particular community and business need, to provide Albertans with the best possible telephone service at the lowest possible cost.

Then we had to find people to fit all these things into place. Technicians, engineers, girls who knew how to smile with their voices.
