Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, hbruory 15, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Proposed changes 'a simple majority' PM Trudeau jubiliant about outome of meeting on constitutional amendments n.amhlv and: Tf there is 22V campaigning in Th? svesw'.CTl formula st OTTAWA (CP) Six sur to. Prime Minister Trudeau used the means six out of 10-at least five Umes at his news conference here at the conclusion of the federal-provin- cial constitutional conference. Tito phrase is Mr. Trudeau's simplified summing-up of the proposed formula for amending the constitution which came out of the conference after some ar- ithmetical juggling by the first ministers. "A simple the prime minister declared jubi- lantly at one point in his news conference. Meaning that agreement by six out of the 10 provinces could amend the constitution, the Brit- ish North America Act, once it is brought to Canada from Lon- don. Population growth unusually slow OTTAWA (CP) Canada's population reached an esti- mated at p.m. EST Friday after a than-usual growth rate in recent months. Dominion Bureau of Statis- tics, which reported the count from its population clock, said growth through 1970 numbered only or 1.4 per cent to Jan. 1. Thepopulatlon grew by in 1969, in 1968 and in 1967-growth rates of 1.5 '.n 1968 1969 and 1.9 per cent in 1967. Ontario grew by resi- dents to Jan. 1, a growth rate of 2.5 per cent. The increase in British Columbia was to a rate of 2.9 per cent. Alberta gained rate of 2.5 per Quebec's population went up by or three-tenths of one per cent to In Newfoundland, the gain was or one per cent, to Manitoba's population increased by or two-filths of one per cent, Jo Nova Scotia and New Bruns- wick each gained rate of almost two-fifths of one per cent to in Nova Scotia and almost one-half of one per cent to 6J6.000 in New Bruns- wick. Prince Edward Island's count was unchanged at Saskatchewan's population fell by 2.5 per cent-to continuing a decline from the peak of Jan. Cominco earnings dip MONTREAL (CP) Cominco Ltd. reports 1970 consolidated net earnings of S24.3 million or a share, down from million or a share a year earlier. Slight decrease EDMONTON (CP) A total of vehicles carrying passengers entered Jasper Na- tional Park in January com- pared with vehicles carry- ing passengers in the same month last year. The figures include non-recur- ring gains of million in 1969 and in 1970. "Increased costs of labor and services and the general decline in metal prices since mid-year, together with the floating Cana- dian dollar, had a serious effect on the' year's the company said in a statement AUSTRALIA'S AREA Australia has an area of abou square miles. I But it is much more compli- cated than that, as Mr. Trudeau himself pointed out later. It's not really six out of 10 at all but seven out of 11 because he federal government must also give its blessing to any con- stitutional amendments. And there are other require- ments. Two of the consenting irovinces must be Quebec and )ntario. Two must be from the west with at least 50 per cent of he western population. And two must be from the east. Mr. Trudeau maintained that he proposed formula is rigid in hat it gives Quebec a veto on any constitutional amendment while it is flexible in that Quebec would need the agree- ment of only five other prov- inces to obtain an amendment. It is a big improvement, he said, over the previous proposed formula, first accepted by Quebec in 1964 and then re- jected, which required unani- mous consent for important amendments. The question now is: Will Mr. Trudeau try to sell his so-called "six sur dix" in Quebec? No, informants say. The pro- posed formula will defend itself because it is the best that can be expected. Moreover, Informants say Mr. Trudeau does not want to give any appearance of impos- ing a formula on Quebec even though the proposed one is no' exclusively federal. At the same time, Mr. Tru- deau is unlikely to want to de- liberately make the proposed formula an issue to Quebec. Consequently, chances of fed-1 Quebec seals of ueec Trois-Rivieres before the next favor of ''six sur inform- conrtitutional conference in Vic- i ants say. it will be left to Pre- toria in June appear remote. i mier Robert Bourassa of There is also a federal va- Quebec-if he chooses to sup- VjUUaCULHTUUJ V-IWUivtJ ui 't eral byelections in the vacant i cancy in Central Chemcell hit by brief EDMONTON (CP) A ma- ior North American chemicals 'tan came under fire here for jolluting the air and water jround Edmonton. Chemcell Ltd. was the tar- get of a lengthy brief present- ed by a group called Save To- morrow Oppose Pollution at a public meeting on the Uni- versity of Alberta campus. 'From November, 1953, to 1968, the company spent about million for pollution control installations (in said S.T.O.P. "In the years 1969-1970, close to SI million was spent for pol- lution control equipment. The comp any can be justifiably proud of the pollution control equipment they have installed. "However, the Chemcell Clo- ver Bar plant has been in op- eration for 17 years and during that time the plant has been a major polluter cf water and air in the Edmonton area Chemcell, 57-per-cent owned by Celanese Corp. of New York, produces basic chemicals and fibres in its Alberta operation to supply other Chemcell plants. The anti pollution group said the firm spends million annually in the prov- ince. mm Get an early start on savings at this Great Mid Month Event "The company'! total net In- come for the years 1960 to 1970 is The Clover Bar plant represents a capital expenditure of over mil- lion. The million that has been spent on pollution control is only about 2ti per cent of the total spent on the Chemcell plant." This, S.T.O.P. said, made the average spent on pollution con- trol since the company began operating in Alberta, about a year. "The company's large expen- ditures since 1969 may make Chemcell one of indu s t r y' s leaders in the fight against pol- lution in the province. "However, it appears thai many of these improvements had been required for the 15 years since the plant began op- erating. "This 15 year delay is an expression of extreme corpor- ate negligence." S.T.O.P. said the Clover Bar operation has polluted water hundreds of miles away with liquid effluent discharged into the North Saskatchewan River.

Meanwhile, Dr. George Mil- er, Chemcell plant manager, said in an interview following the meeting that the million worth of equipment serves no other function except to abate pollution. Another to Th? svgfw'.ed formula still has to be "put down on papir in exact legal terminology. It is such a legal document which the 11 governments will adopt or reject in Victoria in the sum- mer. When Mr. Trudeau was visit- i ing Pakistan last month, he stared in wonderment when President Yahya Khan told him hai country's new assembly las been given 120 day's to draw up a new constitution. Mr. Trudeau wondered aloud whether the Pakistani example could be applied to Canada, where the latest series of consti- tutional talks have been going on since 1968. nillton has been spent on equipment which controls psl- iution and also serves other functions. Dr. Miller dismissed the charge of corporate negligence saying that times now are dif- ferent and Chemcell is doing everything possible to improve pollution control.
