In addition, there was "far too much" provincial govern- ment involvement in the private sector, there was interference in the field of agriculture, and lack of plann- ing in the expenditure of wind- fall profits from energy use EDMONTON (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed says the major decisions facing Albertans in 1975 will relate to the ability to ensure that the province's natural resources "are used effectively to provide for a sound and balanced Alberta economy." The premier, in his New Year's message, says Alberta must stand "strong in our resolve to obtain a fair return from our depleting resources of oil and gas." "One fact which we must confront is that we cannot continue to take for granted the prosperity we enjoy when in large part it has resulted from a depleting resource. "I sense that Albertans are starting to lose the com- placency that we may have felt at one time- A treat An Edmonton-area handicapped person was one of 40 treated to a bit of holiday fun by hitching a ride on a snowmobile at Lake Isle, Alberta on Monday. Outcome not yet known WEST GLACIER, Mont. (AP) The outcome of an attempt to climb the highest peak in Glacier National Park in northwestern Montana probably will not be known until late this week, a park spokesman said Monday. Dick Munro. management assistant, said the Mount Cleveland is in a remote area south of the Canadian border. He said there is no radio or other contact with the party of seven climbers, most of them from Wisconsin. resources, Mr. Schmidt said in a year end statement released today. The Social Credit leader called for an immediate cessation of hostilities between the Alberta and federal governments on the .issue of energy resources. The confrontation has already reduced exploration activity to a point where there could be a shortfall of oil in Canada as early as 1978, he said. "Canada could be self suf- ficient in oil supply if explora- tion advances at a reasonable rate. To frustrate this self sufficiency is irresponsible and unpardonable." Some action can be taken to ease the effects of the confrontation. Mr. Schmidt suggested. A review of taxation of cor- porations by the federal government and a review of oil royalty structures by the producing provinces could assure a reasonable return to the parties concerned without dislocation of the industry. And oil prices at the well head should be allowed to rise, in gradual stages during a period of about three years, to a level competitive with price levels in other markets, he said. In the area of provincial government involvement in the private sector. Mr. Schmidt cited the purchase of Pacific Western Airlines :jnd the government's acquisition of a 20 per cent interest in Interprovincial Steel and Pipe Corp. Ltd.. as two of several examples. "Instead of departing'from the recognition of the impor- tance of the individual, 1975 should see the re establish- ment of private enterprise initiative at the levels of local autonomy, less bureaucracy, the encouragement of small business and reward for in- dividual effort." He registered concern about government interference in the agriculture industry, say- ing deterioration of cattle markets was directly attributable to such interference. Mr. Schmidt also criticized the government's lack of reasonable planning for spending of increased resource revenue, calling lor a clear and definite plan in the coming year. should be the year when stability, responsibility and consistency in govern- ment policy and action is reintroduced through respect for contracts, local decision making and decisions based on principle rather than ex- pediency and opportunism." he said.
