Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Silurdiy, February Thaw in Alberta-Ottawa battle raises new hopes LOUGHEED By HOWARD COLLINS OTTAWA (CP) A slight thawing in the often icy rela- tions between Ottawa and Al- berta raises hopes for a mutual agreement on oil and natural gas prices during a federal-provincial meeting in April. Another in a series of bitter battles between the two governments appeared to be shaping up for the April 9-10 meeting of Prime Minister Trudeau and the 10 premiers to discuss prices as well as the state of the economy. The meeting will come ex- actly two weeks after a March 26 election in which the provincial government hopes to get a solid mandate for its talks with Ottawa.' Premier Peter Lougheed said in announcing the elec- tion date Friday that his government "should have the confidence of the majority of Albertans" going into the talks. He said that Ottawa thought Albertans not solidly behind their govern- ment. Comments from both sides earlier this week point to the possibility of a more amicable settlement of the price con- sumers will pay for oil and gas after a present pricing agree- ment runs out June 30. Premier Peter Lougheed of Alberta, who indicated in De- cember lie might take unila- teral action to raise prices. rather than negotiate, said fol- lowing talks with the prime minister in Calgary this week that he will attend the meeting to discuss prices. Energy Minister Donald Macdonald, describing relations with Alberta as be- ing more cordial than for some.time, says legislation giving Ottawa ultimate power to set interprovincial oil and petroleum prices likely will be delayed until after the meeting. The province hotly opposes the legislation as a further federal infringement of its constitutional rights to control natural resources within its borders. Although neither side is say- ing what prices it has in mind, the figures generally used by government and industry offi- cials is a well-head price in- crease of ?2 to a barrel for oil and 15 cents to 75 cents for a thousand cubic feet of gas. Those increases would tack about six cents to the price of a gallon of gasoline and about on the annual heating bill of a homeowner using natural gas. First sign of a lessening in tension between Ottawa and Edmonton came late last week when Mr. Macdonald, discussing negotiations to 'save the Syncrude oil sands project in northern Alberta, said he felt relations had im- proved. Ottawa, Ontario and Alberta agreed to provide (800 million in financing to keep the Syncrude project alive. He added that a bill in- troduced in the Commons last fall, which would give Ottawa power to set interprovincial prices if a suitable agreement couldn't be negotiated with the provinces, probably will be delayed.

CALGARY (CP) Pat English, president of the Alberta Teachers Association says the province's teachers should make education an important issue in the upcoming provincial election. And try to make the govern- ment spend a larger portion of its energy bonanza on education, she told the annual convention of the Calgary teachers. "We need more teachers telling more MLAs the real facts, that more of that resource revenue money has to be applied to education." Noting that the Calgary Catholic school teaqhers have just signed a new contract with the separate school board, Miss English added: just because salary contracts are being settled, it's not the end of the fight." EVALUATION COMMITTEE Speaking on the convention theme, "Get Your Cotton Pickin' Fingers Off My Miss English said the ATA wants to set up a professional competence evaluation committee. At present, the ATA does not handle cases involving complaints about teacher in- competence and because of this school trustees are using 'subtle threats" to force the resignation of teachers, she said. One such. "subtle threat" would be "if you resign I won't tell people how bad you Miss English said. "Trustees should make operational decisions, but not judge .the competence of teachers. Cubans pay interest on Canadian loan OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian International Develop- ment Agency (CIDA) will loan million to Cuba at three- percent interest because the finance department objected to granting an interest-free loan, it was learned Friday. A CIDA spokesman said the Cubans are happy to be getting the loan, over 30 years. They might have received an interest-free loan repayable over 50 years if the finance department had not objected that Cuba, in a better financial position than in the past because of the high world price of sugar, should pay some interest. The loan actually is a line of credit. The Cubans may use it to purchase public health services, pharmaceutical supplies and facilities, and an animal health laboratory. The CIDA officials said it is up to Canadian businessmen to approach the Cubans about sales. The loan is the first on which CIDA has charged interest. The agency has made million in loans over the years. Usually the first payment is due 10 years after the loan is made and most are for 50 years. In the Cuban case the first payment is due1 in sever, years. The loan was announced as Canadian officials prepared ,for what is considered a highly important visit today to Ottawa by the head of the Cuban central bank. Raul Leon, National Bank of Cuba president, will talk to trade, external and banking of- ficials.
