Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, February THE LETHMIDQE HERALD 3 Islands drum up support OTTAWA (CP) New Democrat MP Max Saltsman brought a ray of sunshine to the dimly-lit halls of Parliament Hill Thursday, continuing his campaign for Canada to acquire the Turks and Caicos islands in the Caribbean. Mr. Saltsman (Waterloo-Cam- bridge) was accompanied by a three- member delegation from the islands, all of them involved in the hotel industry. "Our mission here is mainly one of tourist admitted Liam Maquire, owner of one of the islands' eight small hotels. That, constitutionally, is all that he and Hubert James, another hotel owner, and Norman Saunders, a hotel accountant can do for the time being. The main obstacle is the fact that the islands, between 30 and 40 of them north of Haiti with a total of 170 square miles, are a British territory. So, until Britain agrees, the islanders can act only unofficially. "If the people express an said Mr. Saunders, chairman of the tourist board, "I don't think the British government would stand in the way." Only seven of the islands, sur- rounded by the coral reefs of the Caicos Bank, are inhabited. The total population is about persons, about 50 per cent of them younger than 20 and about 20 per cent older than 60. The remaining 30 per cent, mainstay of the labor force, are involved mainly in the tourism and lobster industries. At least another Turks and Caicos islanders have left, unable to find work, and now live in the Bahamas. Mr. Saltsman is convinced that the islands would be an asset to Canada, either as part of Nova Scotia or as a territory. "It may be that we'll Become a national laughed Mr. Maguire, who did most of the talking at a news conference. "Our main concern right now is to let you know we exist." Mr. Saltsman, who has formally proposed that a parliamentary committee investigate the possibility of the islands joining Canada, said union would be mutually beneficial. The islands, which desperately need a jet strip at the airport, would keep domestic dollars in this country's economy if they were a part of this country. Canadians spend vast amounts of money every year in other parts of the Caribbean in their search for mid- winter sun. "Our said Mr. Maguire, "is that everything's going over the top." The islands are on the main airline routes between Canada and South America but, because the paved airstrip is only feet long, big jets cannot land safely. An additional feet is needed. Another problem has been that the islands had no fresh water, but Mr. Maguire said hydrological surveys have shown deposits do exist beneath the group. ___________ would be he told a GENERAL FARM Presents The Weather SUNRISE SATURDAY SUNSET H LPre Lethbridge...... -2 Pincher Creek -6 Medicine Hat -3 Edmonton...... -9 Grande Prairie. -15 Banff........... 11 Calgary......... -9 Victoria ........50 Penticton.......36 Prince George -2 Kamloops.......32 Vancouver......44 Saskatoon...... -14 Regina........ -13 Winnipeg...... -14 Toronto.........44 Ottawa.........45 FORECAST: Lethbridge 'Cloudy becoming sunny this afternoon, highs 5-10 above.

(AP) An Alberta man was crushed to death yesterday when he was pinned against a loading dock by a truck with brake failure police reported. A spokesman said Clarence Frederick Barstad, 41, of Hinton, Alta., was helping to unload a smaller vehicle from the truck when the accident occurred. Barstad was an employee of the Imperial Oil Co. OFFER REJECTED MONTREAL (CP) About of garment workers affiliated with the Quebec Federation of Labor rejected the latest contract proposals by' the1 Quebec Garment Manufacturers' Association at a noisy meeting here this week. Lougheed opposes parley EDMONTON (CP) Pre- mier Peter Lougheed said Thursday he is not interested in another federal-provincial energy conference in March as proposed by Prime Minister Trudeau. Such a meeting "hardly news conference. "We will be heavily involved in other matters." Mr. Trudeau asked all 10 provincial premiers Wednesday to set aside March 14-15 for a second summit meeting on the divisive oil- pricing issue. Last week's energy conference resulted in postponement of action on oil prices, which must still be negotiated, until April 1. Failure to hold an energy conference before April 1 could mean that Alberta would negotiate its oil prices privately" with only Ottawa, not with all the other provincial premiers. Premier Lougheed he has communicated his feelings about the call for a new energy conference to the prime minister. He told the news conference last week's energy meeting could scarcely have come at a worse time for Alberta, strug- gling to draw up specific new energy policies of its own in response to legislation passed in December. "We still have oil royalties to said the premier who had just finished announcing a new system of natural gas royalties. "We have a (petroleum) marketing commission to get into operation." "We've got to concentrate on some of these things at home. We can have all the discussions we want but we've only got so many people and so much time." The premier said he might favor a conference of first ministers in June on national industrial strategy and regional development, but not strictly on energy.
