NOON for the billion-dollar project by Syncrude Canada Ltd. to develop the Athabasca oil sands in northeastern Alberta. CAN'T SIGN Union spokesmen said they can't sign anything until Sec- tion 82 the Labor Act is changed. That section basical- ly prohibits labor unions from signing two different agreements with the same contractors. AMEND government has to amend the act in order for us to negotiate a labor said Lawrence Leclair. president of the Alberta and Northwest Territories Building Trades Council. He said construction unions have just finished negotiating two-year which include the possibilities of strikes and lockouts. Syncrude has said that its project will not go ahead until an agreement guaranteeing labor stability for its five-year construction period is reached. Mr. Leclair said the unions are to give them labor but the unions can't do it with Section 82. Gene executive secretary of the Alberta Federation of said is totally wrong for the government to suggest that everything is ready to ex- cept for a labor because they give the impres- sion the unions are holding the project He said the real holdup is the government's inaction on Section 82. passed during the 1973 spring legislature.

They sought to show that even if the legislation were law today the government could not use its sweeping provisions because no national crisis exists. The House went into a cat- calling uproar as Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield and others pressed Energy Minister Donald Macdonald to say whether a national energy crisis exists. Mr. Macdonald said there are energy problems of national concern. Mr. Stanfield told reporters later that the energy alloca- tion bill will not be approved without removal of some sweeping powers it contains. Mr. Macdonald said outside the House he expects the energy allocation to be created under th'e will find there is a national emergency requiring action under the legislation. At times the uproar in the Commons was so loud it was difficult to hear questions and answers. Conservative after Con- servative got up to press the party's view. Mr. Macdonald said at one stage he saw a guilty conscience showing in some of Mr. Stanfield's ques- tions. POWERS SWEEPING The allocation before a Commons would give the government power to declare a national energy crisis. It could exercise sweeping powers of control over various transportation facilities to move oil to where it is most needed. It also provides for ration- ing at the wholesale level next month. Individual rationing could be imposed if necessary. Mr Stanfield and others wanted to know whether the energy situation is serious enough that a national crisis would be declared if the bill were law. Mr. Macdonald declined to make such a statement. He said that immediately after passage of the bill the al- location board will be created and il will study the situation. The decision on whether to call an emergency would be based on that study. He said he does not agree with Mr. Stanfield that oil particularly in re- gard to Bunker C ship oil on the East and West are purely local. They were matters of national concern and during talks with petroleum industry officials Tuesday he had learned they were adhering to predictions of a possible energy shortage. The Conservatives resumed their attack later in the House resources where the energy bill is under study. Sinclair Stevens Toronto York and Eldon Wool lia ins North t re- pfatedly pressed Mr. Macdo- nald to say whether an energy crisis already exists. The minister replied that enough evidence of a potential crisis exists to have the pro- posed allocation board in- vestigate as soon as it is es- tablished. John Stabback. member of the national energy told the committee that shor- tages of bunker oil are increasing on the West and stocks of heating oil in the East will be far below 1973 levels by the end of next March. Mr. Macdonald has said that at the could suffer an oil shortage of 200.- 000 barrels a day. This would affect mainly areas in and east of the Ottawa Valley which rely on expensive and scarce imported oil WANTS DECLARATION Inside and outside the Com- mons Mr. Stanfield said that unless there is a declaration of a national energy no ac- tion can be taken under the bill that the government is attempting to rush through the Commons against strong Conservative resistance. He told reporters he does not agree with the govern- ment that it lacks the con- stitutional right to make allocations without leg- a point made by Ger- ald Baldwin Mr. Baldwin had asked Trade Minister Alastair Gillespie why certain legisla- tion permitting the govern- ment to allocate products was not used to deal with oil shor- tages.
