Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta jobs at stake Alberta offered slice of Sask. steel company EDMONTON The Alberta government has been given an option to purchase a 20-per-cent interest in Interprovincial Steel and Pipe Ltd. of Industry Minister Fred Peacock said Wednesdav. The which the Alberta government must ex- ercise within the next 120 would cost the province about million and would provide an avenue to develop the Peace River iron deposits in northwestern the minister said. If the option is the shares will be held by an investment holding company to be established by the provincial government. The 20-per-cent interest would make Alberta an equal partner with the Sask- atchewan government which acquired a similar share of 1PSCO last summer. EXPANSION PROGRAM IPSCO agreed it will under- through an expansion to equalize employ- ment in steel and related in- dustries in the two provinces as soon as commercially possible or at least within the next five years.

IPSCO acquired a plant at Edmonton this year when it purchased Canadian Phoenix Steel and Pipe Ltd.'s local plant from a German steel- making company. Mr. Peacock estimated the cost of the steel-making ex- pansion would be about million and would probably proceed in three or four years if Alberta picks up its option for the interest in IPSCO. He said Alberta's decision to take the option depends on making suitable arrange- ments to study the develop- ment of the Peace River iron deposits If it was feasible to use the Peace River an integrated steel-making operation would be started in northwestern Mr Peacock said. He would not say whether Grande Prairie or the town of Peace River had been selected for the plant site. EXCHANGE DEAL If it was not initially possi- ble to use the Peace River iron some arrangements might be made to import iron ore from a foreign source in exchange for Alberta coal and sulphur. The minister suggested South America as one possible ore source. The agreement would give Alberta. Saskatchewan and Slater Steel Industries of an equal share in 60 per cent of the IPSCO stock. The remaining stock is held by the public. Mr. Peacock said IPSCO achieved record sales of million in its latest operating year and is a world leader in pipe-making technology. The company with plants in Ed- Regina and Van- produces pipe ranging in size from one-half inch to 80 inches in diameter for the oil and natural gas as well as sheet and plate steel for manufacturing. Alberta currently imports up to 70 per cent of the steel it consumes. Mr. Peacock said. The agreement with IPSCO would be a step towards mak- ing Alberta self-sufficient in steel and would help diversify the province's economy. CURRENCY CONTROLS TOKYO The Imance ministry Monday reimposed controls on foreign currency purchases by Japanese tourists going abroad as one of a series of measures aimed at reversing the country's alarming balance of payments deficits.

World wheatl supplies in danger LONDON The huge rise in oil costs is endangering world wheat says the International Wheat Council. In for oil required for cargo ships soared to a ton in December from a ton last the council said in a report Wednesday. In the Persian ship oil costs jumped to a ton from last August. Even so. supplies were not always available. The Arab oil squeeze not only is affecting wheat shipments but also other com- modities. Because oil is a prime ingredient of a shortage of fertilizers may soon the council said. MAINTAINS RELATIONS Canada maintains diplomatic relations with almost all independent African nations. Wages take beating in inflation battle OTTAWA About four million workers caught up a bit in October on Canada's steepest inflation in 22 but their average paycheques still brought less than last year for the fourth consecutive month. Statistics Canada reported Wednesday that average weekly pay rose to in October. The government agency does not officially calculate purchasing power of the average real value after deduction for an unofficial calculation showed buying power up 68 cents a week from September. purchasing power was 39 less than in October of last according to the unofficial figuring. Statistics Canada officials agree on the accuracy of the formula that shows a decline in buying power since last July. Purchasing power of the average wage hit a low point last July. a week behind buying power of 1972. While the trend it showed a gradual easing to in in September and in Oc- tober as wage increases made up lor some of the loss. FALLS BEHIND Although the average wage rose weekly from Octo- 1972. to the increase has not been enough to keep up with sharply rising living costs that stood in Oc- tober 9.3 per cent above a year earlier. Statistics Canada's Tigures on average wages cover insurance and real es- tate industries. In a provincial Statistics Canada said the average weekly wage in Oc- tober in Newfoundland was up 13 cents a week from September and up from a year Prince Edward Island down 96 cents for the month and up over the Nova Scotia up 34 cents for the month and up for the New Brunswick up for the month and up for the Quebec up for the month and up over the Ontario up for the month and up for the Manitoba up for the month and up for the Saskatchewan up for the month and up over the Alberta up for the month and up for the British Columbia up for the month and up for the year Statistics Canada does not publish provincial consumer price so it is not pos- sible to calculate purchasing power of workers' wages by province.
