Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Low tonight 5 above; high Saturday 75-30. The LetKbridgc Herald RIGHT ON TARC FT FOR 197i VOL. LXV No. 5 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1972 PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENll THREE SECTIONS-32 PAGES Mackenzie Valley highway construction slowdown proposed By JKFF CARKtTHEKS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Construction of the million-plus Mackenzie Valley highway, the spine of any future pipeline corridor out of the Arctic, should be delayed hi least a year, Federal Envi- ronment Minister Jack Davis is recommending to cabinet. Toe highway is being pushed shcad {fjfj fast, experts in the environment department and on the one-year-old federal envi- ronmental council have told the environment min- ister. Mr. Davis and bis senior offi- cials have concluded that the environment department ex- perts on the scene of the high- way construction need more time to select the best possible route, designs and construction raethods to safeguard the north- e rn en vironnie fit a Ion g t he route. ALSO AGREE Arxl officials in said Thursday they believe the offi- cials of the other major depart- ments interested in highway project, such as the energy, mines and resources and the In- dian affairs and northern devel- opment departments, also agree that a delay in the construction would be advisable. More specifically, Mr. Davis U recommending that construc- tion scheduled for next winter he kept to an absolute min- imum, so that environment de- partment experts responsible for supervising environmental suspects of the construction can get far enough with research and planning to the best job for the whole highway construction. Such a stretching out of the coEsiryclion would' mean that the couM not te ishftd before the witler o! 77, instead of as tentatively scheduled, a senior environment department official said Tnursday. Mr.Davh indicated he hopes a decision will be bv rat on the recommendation possibly before Christmas. If accepted, a delay in the construction of the Mackenzie Valley highway could have a number of significant con- sequences. For one, if the government decides that construction of any pipelines down the Mackenzie Valley corridor cannot start un- til the highway is finished, then con .ruction ovjkl start until the wiitfjer of if not later. A. T. Davidson, assistant dep- uty minister for policy planning and research in the environ- ment d epsrt me nt. aid Thurs- day that ''even if it a delay in a pipeline, I think it should be done this with a delay in the highway. He no'jed that some experts now feel that building of a pipe- line could conceivably start be- fore the highway is completely finished. For example, it might be sufficient to have the south- ern half of the highway onJy completed to Fort Good Hope, considering th? fact that the northern link of the highway be- tween InuvJk and Arctic Red River is now constructed. Tne mulU-mJlIion dollar high- way, first announced by Prime Minister Trudeau in May, is being built from both ends, north and south, towards the midle. In the speech, Mr. Trudeau said I'M highway would be bull "ahead of any pipelines.'1 Feelings mixed on language policy aim By JEAN-GUY CARRIER OTTAWA (CP) Tne federal government's an- nouncement Thursday of new principles for implemen- tation of in government departments drew reaction ranging from to "guarded optim- ism" from the civil sen-ice. Reaction was stronger, and negative, from opposi- tion jxiiiticai spokesmen, some of whom saw the bi- linguajism issue a5 a prime element in the setback of the Literal government in the Oct. 3 federal election. Prime Minister Trudeau said the announcement Tnursday by Treasury Board President C. M. Drury extending bilingual dates by three years was "backUaciing." It was interred to add specifics to the program so that civil servants could plan ahead.

The "clarified" policy aims for the designation of nearly public service jobs as bilingual by Dec. and the filling of these jobs by bilingual per- fay Dec. 3i, 1K8. Mr. Drury contests the interpretation that this sets back by three years the attainment of a bilingual pub- lic service.
