Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBHIDat HERALD- Saturday, February 19, Energy crisis may aid timbermen MONTREAL (CP) The energy crisis could be a boon for Canadian timbermen as fossil fuel shortages are sending the price of wood substitutes soaring, C.

B.C. energy commission refuses Kootenay line VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia Energy Commission has refused an application by Inland Natural Gas Co Ltd. to build a 95-mile natural gas pipeline in the East and West Kootenay. The commission said the benefits justified cost of the pipeline, but listed four "undesirable features of the contract" between Inland and Alberta and Southern Gas Co Ltd. If Inland files an improved gas supply contract with Alberta and Southern before May 15, the commission said the pipeline would be approved, if other questions are also answered The pipeline would connect Inland's line at the Alberta- B.C. border with a major pipeline now delivering Alberta natural gas to southern California. Inland said the line would bring natural gas to the communities of Fruitvale, Montrose and Salmo in the West Kootenay for the first time, would add security to the Inland system, and would provide economic benefits by easing load peaks in the winter. Alberta and Southern would also take back gas in the summer, if feasible. The commission, in refusing the application, said the small volume of gas Inland would receive would only be sufficient to run the pipeline at capacity for 24 days a year. It cited the lack of a firm commitment from Alberta and Southern to take back gas in the summer, and an option clause with Alberta and Southern This clause would allow the contract to be changed to a more favorable firm supply only if the B.C. government supported an Alberta and Southern application to export gas to Southern California. The commission said any new contract should offer higher volumes, commitments with Alberta and Southern to accept return of all gas, and removal of the option clause in its present form. Chrysler chief wants business latitude EDMONTON (CP) The president of Chrysler of Canada said this week businessmen have caused many of their own consumer relations problems through a "lack of communication" with the public and government Ron Todgham told the annual meeting of the Edmonton Better Business Bureau "information and REGULAR CATTLE SALE EVERY IMONDAY AT 11A.M.

He said governments are becoming too involved in consumer protection and said many changes in consumet law may be beyond what the public wants. Pollution control devices on cars are said Mr. Todgham, who said the energy crisis is demonstrating how costly the devices are in terms of money and gasoline. "Only recently has the cost penalty in terms of fuel consumption been given the level of attention it he said. There are so many levels of government involved in consumer protection "you begin to wonder just how much protection the poor consumer needs, and from he said. "Despite evidence that business is becoming more involved (in consumer affairs) than ever, it is being 'criticized more than ever before for not doing he said. Business should have the widest possible latitude in meeting government consumer regulations, said Mr. Todgham. Bloedel planning refinery VANCOUVER (CP) Macmillan Bloedel Ltd. is planning to establish a small oil refinery in the Vancouver area to ensure a supply of bunker oil for its ships, oil industry spokesmen said this week. Macmillan Bloedel officials were unavailable for comments, but E. B. Sleigh, regional manager for Shell Canada Ltd. said the forestry- based company had discussed the possibility of establishing its own refinery with Shell. Mr. Sleigh said a joint venture would be logical because Macmillan Bloedel doesn't have real knowledge in the refinery area. He said the planned refinery would distill bunker oil from crude oil for the ships, with the remainder of the oil passed on to another refinery for farther processing. LANDSCAPE BARED The removal of a mature forest leaves a tundra-like landscape Bad business rubble blossoms on site of new Vancouver pedestrian mall. Imperial drilling thick ice TORONTO (CP) Imperial Oil Ltd. is carving through five-foot-thick ice to build a drilling island in the Beaufort Sea on Canada's Arctic coast. Scheduled for competition by the end of March, it will be Imperial's third wildcat attempt in the sea. Construction started about 10 days ago, a spokesman said Thursday The island site is a few miles from the northern tip of Ivik Peninsula and one- half mile south of Pullen Island. "They're cutting out damn big ice cubes, I tell the spokesman said. Blocks of ice measuring five feet by 10 feet are being hoisted out of the sea. Depth of the blocks is about five feet, almost reaching the sea bottom in the area. Gravel fill is being hauled from a lake 65 miles away and poured into the openings left after the ice is removed. About yards of gravel will be needed to create the island and 32 trucks are working almost constantly over frozen waterways to carry the load An estimated "giant ice cubes" will have to be lifted out of the sea, at a rate of about 100 a day. VANCOUVER (CP) -Clos- ing-out sale signs are beginning to blossom along Granville Street, where mounds of rubble mark the start of an ambitious program to convert a five-block section of Vancouver's main downtown thoroughfare into a pedestrian mall. Faced with plummeting sales during the construction stage and skyrocketing rents for some premises, a number of merchants are pulling up stakes rather than hang on in hopes that the mall will eventually attract a flood of new customers to the area. Last month city engineers closed a three-block section of Granville street to vehicular traffic and moved in steam shovels to begin ripping up pavement from Nelson street northward to the main downtown intersection at Georgia Street. Later, work will be extended another block northward to Fender street. Civic officials and some businessmen have hailed the mall project as a major step toward revitalizing the downtown district, which has seen a sizable portion of its business drained away in recent years by shopping centres located in outlying areas of the city. DOUBTS ABOUT FUTURE But with cars barred from the area and customers forced to navigate mounds of rubble torn up by workmen, merchants in the three-block mall section now under construction report a drastic drop in business. Many are wondering how much they will be able to win back Adding to the merchants' woes, owners of some buildings in the mall area have instituted sharp rent increases, feeling that, once completed, the mall will trigger a business boom that will make their premises more valuable. Sam Pelman, owner of a men's clothing shop, said he decided to move after his rent was increased to a month from "They (building owners) came around and they said that this mall is going to increase your business so much that in two years you will think nothing of this Mr. Pelman recounted. "But that's only if we can last that long. And we can't." P. C. Lawrence, proprietor of a book store, also said he was moving. "It's like Sunday around here. there's no traffic at all." Mr. Lawrence said the Mall project is "ill-advised and un- warranted." False Creek, a tidal inlet off English Bay, makes Van- couver's downtown business district a virtual island with the Granville Street bridge serving as one of the main outlets to other sections of the city. "Name me another mall that has an eight-lane bridge at the end of said Mr, Lawrence. "I think it's stupid." He said he believed the mall may create a major traffic problem for the city. Lack of adequate parking facilities ad- jacent to the mall was another problem. Restaurant manager Nick Gnissios said his business has fallen off 30 per cent since mall construction started. But he said he intended to stay in business, hoping to regain his current losses after the mall opens about mid-summer this year. He said he was hopeful, but by no means convinced, that the mall will work. Pipeline seeking work space TORONTO (CP) A pipeline to carry crude oil to Montreal from Sarnia, Ont, will need a swath of temporary working space 30 to 40 feet wide in addition to rights-of-way already held by Interprovincial Pipelines Ltd., a company spokesman said this week. Owen Linton, project man- ager for Interprovincial, said the temporary working space will be leased for one year from individual landowners. These working rights, necessary because heavy equipment cannot be run over existing pipe lines, would total about 945 acres from Sarnia to Burlington. From Burlington, the com- pany would have to acquire a 10-mile-long corridor to link up with a 45-mile Ontario Hydro right-of-way to take the pipeline around Toronto. From there to the Quebec border it would need a acre corridor of mostly mar- ginal land. Brazil buys more wheat RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (AP) Brazil has purchased an additional 18.5 million bushels of wheat from Canada, the government's national food supply supenntendency reported this week. The report said the shipment was expected soon in Brazil, and was made within the price range in the international market. The contract was signed by 'Brazilian government with the Canadian wheat board. loMny locdMl hi UMB coirtrt of UHTQI) PICTURE BUHE AUCTION MARKET and hpgnMMng country HOG AND DAIRY CATTLE SALE CALVES Feeder and Fat Cattle Wed., Feb. 20tM p.ia 300 HEAD 300 AH Classes of Cattle TUESDAY FEB. 20k mEDHBFER Aai STOCK COW SALE LiMlnQe Invited Saturday at 1 p.m. MARKET HOQS ASSEMBLED MONDAY THRU FRIDAY Contact JIM or JOE JURIS 732.4400- JUbwta 10 IMM north el on as CANADIAN GENETICS (LETH.)
