Mr. Macdonald said that the controversy over the Petrosar petrochemical project plann- ed for Sarnia was also raised by Alberta, but that nothing further was resolved on it. Alberta government sources said that the dis- cussions on petrochemicals in general and Petrosar in par- ticular were raised in the context of ensuring domestic oil feedstocks for Canadian in- dustries. Petrosar needs some barrels a day of western oil to make ethylene, a substance used to make plastics. The Syncrude Canada Ltd. oil sands project, by com- parison, will only produce barrels a day of syn- thetic oil, starting later in the decade. Alberta officials noted that Petrosar actually -would prefer to obtain conventional oil instead of any synthetic oil, for technical reasons. Ontario sources, who noted that Ontario ministers did not become involved in the dis- cussions with Alberta and Ot- tawa on petrochemicals last Monday in Winnipeg, confirm- ed Ottawa source claims that the federal government refus- ed to accept any deal on Petrosar as a part of the Syncrude agreement.

Hydro controls the property and began the feasibility study in the spring of 1974. Hydro es- timated the energy needs of' the province are growing at nine per cent a year. In an address to the Ashcroft and District Chamber of Commerce recently, Peter Liesch, B.C. Hydro district manager, said the proposed plant would cost about WO million. He said various studies should be com- pleted by this spring and if the government approves the pro- ject, construction could start in 1976. The plant could be completed in 1980. Mike Yewehin, mayor of the Village of Ashcroft, 20 miles east of Upper Hat Creek, said he has been informed that about jobs would be created while the plant is un- der construction, and 300 jobs for operation. A study by the B.C. Petroleum Corp. estimated that the reserve is capable of generating 880 megawatts of electricity for the 30 year life of the thermal plant. Premier Dave Barrett has expressed interest in es- tablishing coal as an energy source because of the high cost of hydroelectric projects. Winnipeg exchange approves margin WINNIPEG (CP) The board of governors of the Win- nipeg Commodity Exchange have passed a resolution allowing members taking margins from customers in futures trading to accept Canadian or U.S. treasury bills instead of cash. In an announcement Friday, the board said letters of credit issued by a Canadian chartered bank or demand deposits will also be accepted as substitutes for cash. Exchange president. Ron Ennis said the decision, effec- tive immediately, was made, to "release the restric- tiveness" of customers margins, which had previous- ly been limited to a cash only. He said the move is design- ed for convenience and to maintain the exchange's com- petitiveness with other markets. "We've found we have to be competitive with other markets, so we keep review- ing the situation." A customers margin is the amount a customer must deposit with the broker for each contract to designate good faith in fulfilling contract terms. It is not con- sidered as part of the payment of purchase, but security to in- sure performance.

"I'm selling because -I've been awfully tired and think somebody younger should take over. I'm in no hurry it's just a matter of finding the right person with the right offer." But anyone who buys the restaurant will have to wait until early October to take it over. "I've taken on too many summer commitments to turn it over to anyone else before then. We had 300 busloads of customers coming through'the area between June and September. If I take on a com- mitment like that I have to give those people what they expect."
