New interest in oil sands shown by mineral experts zeroes in Victoria on 'outright crooks' By WILLIAM BORDERS New York Times Service EDMONTON -With conventional oil reserves continuing to decline, soma minerals experts in this wealthy province are showing new interest in the rich oil sands along the banks of the Athabasca river, 200 miles north of here. For years it has been known that the sticky, black soil of the 30,000-square-mile region contained more oil than the entire Middle East, but no one knew how to extract it profitably. Now the one company working commercially at the task, Great Canadian Oil Sands, Ltd., seems to have turned the corner, and its success is attracting the attention of others considering the plunge into the risky oil sands business. "If they hadn't made it, the oil sands might have been ignored for another 50 years," said one of the many men who crowd this booming provincial capital. "But now you'll see a lot of new faces in the game." of the Sun Oil Company, is pro- ] ducing 49,000 barrels of the synthetic crude oil a day, still only a tiny share of Canada's total production, which climbed last year to 1.5 million barrels a day. In the generally bright picture that oil executives painted of the industry as 1972 ended, they also stressed the stepped-up exploration off the coast of Nova Scotia and the reports of potentially huge findings in the far north. But the appealing tiling they saw in the Athabasca sands, which contain more than 300 million barrels of recoverable oil, was that for the first time in the 10 years since it challenged the tough terrain, great Canadian was extracting oil without enormous financial losses. The company has spent more than $500 million on the project and accumulated a deficit of more than $88 million. But at the year's end its operation was expected to approach the breakeven point. Next in line behind Great Great Canadian, a subsidiary | Canadian at the Athabasca is Syncrude Canada, Ltd., which is owned jointly by Imperial Oil, Ltd., Gulf Oil Canada, Ltd., Atlantic Richfield Canada, Ltd., and Canada - Cities Service, Ltd. Elsewhere on Canada's oil frontiers, most attention continued to focus last year on exploration in the Arctic islands and the Mackenzie river delta in the Northwest Territories. "There are things about some of these northern finds that remind geologists of Saudi Arabia," said an enthusiastic executive in Calgary, the other city that is riding the crest of Canada's oil boom. According to the Canadian Petroleum Institute, production of liquid hydrocarbons last year was up 15 per cent over 1971, and just a couple of months ago exports to the United States grew to more than 1 million barrels a day. The institute estimates provable reserves of conventional oil in Canada at 10 billion barrels, all but about 1.5 billion in Alberta. Both figures are declining, as more and more oil is pumped out of the ground.

By VICTOR MAKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA - The Progressive Conservative and New Democratic Party opposition groups are insisting the government's resolution approving Canada's role in supervising the Vietnam peace b3 brought back into the Commons for a vote. The Liberal minority government embarrassed by the two amendments introduced by the Conservative and NDP, are ducking the request. NDP Leader David Lewis said Monday in an interview he wants the government to bring the resolution back into the house this week for a vote. Progressive Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield is also insisting the government resolution be brought before the house again so that the Commons can vote on it. G. W. Baldwin, Conservative house Leader asked Government House Leader Allan MacEachen in the House Monday when it would be submitted to the House for a vote. Mr. MacEachen sidestepped the question. He said the government would consider bringing it before the House if the Commons finished the other business scheduled to be dealt with by the MP's. Outside the House Mr. Baldwin said he could not understand the government's reluctance to have the resolutions voted on because External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp had declared his readiness to vote for the opposition amendments. The government resolution welcomed the ceasefire in Vietnam and would have put parlia- ment's stamp of approval on the government's decision to participate in the supervisory force for an initial period of 60 days. Mr. Sharp introduced cue resolution into the House seeking a vote from the Commons endorsing the cabinet's action in agreeing to try to make the ceasefire work for at least a 60 day period. Defence Minister James Rich aruson protested outside the House that the suggestions by the opposition might tie his hands in ordering a fast with drawal by the Canadian contingent in Vietnam. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Provinces, harassed by teachers' strikes over wages and working conditions, may be interested in the outcome of a proposed collective-bargaining approach to the problem in Saskatchewan. The New Democratic Party government plans to set up a provincial bargaining unit of teachers and another committee of school trustees and government representatives, in new legislation to be introduced shortly, it was disclosed Monday. The main features in the bill would have the Saskatchewan Teachers Federation appoint a bargaining committee and a government-trustee group represent school boards throughout the province. The legislation, said a report distributed in the house, also would establish a "board of adjudication and review," with members from both sides, to ensure the process of collective bargaining is facilitated. Proposed will be agreements of two years' duration and for mediation, conciliation or arbitration. In other developments at Re-gina, the government defeated a non-confidence vote 36 to 14. The motion called for an expression of regret that the government had failed to attract job-producing industry, failed to cope with unemployment and was eroding individual rights of the people. Standing in the 60-seat house is NDP 45 and Liberals 15. In other legislatures: Halifax-An NDP measure to repeal Nova Scotia's Bonus Act was defeated 36 to 3 when members of the Liberal govern ment and Progressive Conserva tives combined on the vote. One PC member voted with the two NDP members. Municipal Affairs Minister Fraser Mooney suggested the development department review what grants the act now provides. Under it, municipalities may grant tax incentives to developers on a continuing basis. NDP Leader Jeremy Aker-man said some clauses of the act left the door open to "all kinds of abuses." Victoria-"Outright crooks" in the mortgage business, charging interest as high as 24 per cent, should be forced out of business, Dave Brousson (L-North Vancouver-Capilano) told the British Columbia house. "Hundreds of poor people in B.C. are being gypped," he said, in giving the names of companies he said are taking advantage of innocent people who need money. He said one "rip-off" was provided by Dupont Acceptance Corp., owned by Walter Link, its name since changed to Link Development. On a second mortgage of $4,-500, with a bonus of $1,000 and an interest rate of 24 per cent, he said Link monthly payments of $90 exactly balanced the interest. He said this meant that at the end of five years-when the principal was payable in one lump sum-the amount owing was still $4,500.
