LXVI 304 The LetHbridge Herald DECEMBER 1973 15 Centa 72 Pages Trudeau says he won't be pushed around VANCOUVER Prime Minister Trudeau brought the federal government's energy position to the west Friday and combined policy explanations with biting criticism of Alberta Premier Peter Loug- heed. Addressing 820 persons at a British Columbia Liberal par- ty Mr. Trudeau said he wanted to set the record straight in Western Canada following the government's energy policy statement in Ot- tawa Thursday. After calling Mr. Lougheed inadequate in international oil marketing and accusing him of reacting petulantly to the federal oil export the prime minister reiterated his hope that the federal and Alberta governments progress cooperatively toward an energy policy of benefit to all He told the dinner guests not in my interests to quarrel with provincial premiers but. as you it's not in my nature to be pushed around by them Mr. Trudeau said the new oil policy did not result from New Democratic Party demands but came from analysis of the federal green paper published in June. The prime minister said Friday night it is wishful thinking for NDP spokesmen to say the government bowed to that party's demands. The as well as the NDP and Mr. came under fire in his speech. Conservative leader Robert Stanfield has the haziest oil policy of Mr. Trudeau said. It changed from province to province and would allow oil companies to take uncontrolled windfall thus granting United States shareholders sub- stantial unearned dividends. On the other the NDP would deny the company any profits and thereby eliminate off-shore and Arctic oil ex- ploration and development of the Alberta oil Mr. Trudeau said. He accused the Alberta pre- mier and the oil companies of wanting to raise oil prices by as world prices rose above Canadian levels. Alberta showed no intention of acting to prevent windfall profits by U.S. companies try- ing to take advantage of the Canadian oil price the prime minister and its refusal for a time to discuss energy matters with Ottawa was first in the history of federal-provincial relations in Following introduction of the voluntary price Mr. Lougheed caught with his pants by mul- tinational oil companies seek- ing quick profits. Lewis wants big oil firm takeover EDMONTON One of the large multi-national oil companies operating in Canada may be taken over by the federal government if the New Democratic Party has its way. NDP leader David Lewis said Friday at least one of the major oil companies should be nationalized to form the basis of the national petroleum cor- poration that the government plans to set up early next year. He did not make clear how hard his party will press the issue in the Commons where it has functioned for nearly a year as the effective balance of power behind the minority Liberal government. But he said NDP will emphasize nationalization heavily when the next session of Parliament begins in late January or early in February. don't think a national pet- roleum corporation will be of as much value as it should be unless one or perhaps more of the integrated major multi- nationals is taken He said he does not know which of the companies would MOTION ANTI-CLIMA CTIC OTTAWA The Progressive Conser- vatives unveiled their non-confidence motion designed to topple the minority government Monday night. It was short and to the point. House has lost confidence in the government due to its inconsis- tent and vacillating energy which is bringing economic loss to Canada and hardship to the consuming But the motion was robbed of much of its impact even before it was made public late Friday-afternoon. The New Democratic Party has promised to support the government in the vote. Giving it an edge over the Conservatives.

The St. Lawrence Seaway Authority yesterday announc- ed the Kingston to Montreal Seaway would be kept open four days longer than ex- pected. It will now close Dec. 20 instead of Dec. allowing more oil to move by ship to Montreal. Mr. Ritchie in an interview yesterday explained that a combination of major logistics problems will pre- vent significant volumes of crude oil from being moved by rail before the Seaway opens up again next Mr. Ritchie and the National Energy Board of- ficial noted that all available rail oil tanker cars are being used to move refined petroleum products around the country. To divert oil cars to ship crude oil into Montreal would disrupt important oil product movements they said. would be robbing Peter to pay Mr. Ritchie said. They cited a shortage of which could have repercussions in other rail freight movements if an emergency oil movement is started.
