A. C. Bennett Dam on the Pencc- River Delta, Health withuul these people is hog- said Mr. Henderson.

Fuller denied in an interview that the con- ference has anything lo do with politics. "We have no poltical axe to grind. What we're trying to do is set Uie facts before the pub- lic. If the government doesn't want to play the factual game, well He said the conference pro- gram committee is scheduled to meet with Mr. Henderson Friday and a decision on wheth- er the conference goes ahead will be made Monday. Mr. Henderson said that whether the government ap- proved or not, (he conference organizers already have all available information on the delta. They somehow have "a j pipeline practically right into I the minister's office." The two unnamed civil ser- I vants had been asked to be I chairmen at the conference. j The delta has been a topic of controversy since a group of Alberta scientists, including provincial civil servants, re- leased a report this year call- ed the death of the delta. The report said the Bennett Dam, on the British Columbia side of the Peace River, was creating low water levels where the Peace and Athabas- ca rivers flow into Lake Atha- basca in northeastern Alberta. It said trees and shrubs were beginning to grow up where water used to be and wildlife was suffering. Organizers of the conference said its aims would be to reach conclusions concerning the ef- fects of the Bennett Dam, iden- tify possible ways of reducing FOR CHRISTMAS DAY AND NEW YEAR'S DAY SPECIAL FAMILY RATES FOR RESERVATIONS PLEASE PHONE 327-3191 its effects and study possible further research projects and their financing. Mr Henderson said the con- ference organizers are trying to hold Alberta responsible for the effects of the dam even though it was built in B.C. and many of the ecological changes are in Wood Buffalo Park which is under federal jurisdic- tion. The technical aspects of the effects on the delta were lost in the shuffle long ago, he said. "I don't care if it's university politics. Conservative politics of NPD politics, it (the confer- ence) clearly smells of poli- tics." The health minister said poli- ticians, not civil servants, should attend the conference because they must take re- sponsibility for government ac- tions. He would attend if ill- He also said that no one real- ly knows whether the ecologi- cal changes in the delta will be good or bad.

Dick Smith, chief negotiator for the eight unions concerned, said he and the railway negotia- tors agreed last Friday that me- diation was needed "because of a couple of obstacles in our talks." He said the negotiators now were waiting to hear from Labor Minister Mackasey's off- ice on who would be appointed mediator. Mr. Smith said chief issues in the contract dispute were job security and pension benefits. Talks began Nov. 1 when the unions presented their demands for increased wages and fringe benefits. Their two-year con- tract expires Dec. 31. The non-operating railway employees are made up of dis- patchers, clerks, shop laborers, telecommunication employees and other clerical personnel.
