Phone priced in relation lo market value and now has become A premium fuel. CPA says higher prices arc needed lo stimulate exploration and ensure future reserves and that moderate price increase now would result in long-terra economies. Its brief says federal controls on gas prices in the U.S. failed lo recognize the competitive world of gas in relaticn to other fuels, growth in demand and the rising cost of finding new reserves. The brief suggssts that an increase in natural gas price? would bring substanlial bene- fits to the Alberta economy. "On the current proved re- serves alone, each one cent per million cubic feet added to field value would increase gross worth by S400 million. Of that, the Alberta government royal' ty share would yield, at 16.67 per cent, some more. "With cash flow from bonuses and lease rentals added, each one cent per million cubic would likely yie'd Ihe treasury a minimum of million in direct cash retum Ihrough Lhp years of production."

Sen. Foreey, an acknowledged expert on constitutional law, called the suit threatened by B.C. Attorney-General Leslie Pelerson "puro moonshine." The province has said the payments violate the equal- treatment principle of the Brit- ish North America Act, a princi- ple Sen. Forsey said is non-exis- tent. Federal subsidies lo the provinces have been unequal since 1867, he said. "I can't imagine any lawyer who values his reputation taking (he case. He'd need Ihe skin of a rhinoceros and Ihe head of an ostrich." The equalization grants come from federal general revenues, the general pool of funds raised bv all forms of federal taxes. They are calculaled by a for- mula based ori a national aver- Ege of provincial revenues from 16 sources of provincial tax money. Payments then are made to the seven provinces which fall below the national average. The effect Is lhat lax reve- nues from Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia are distributed among the oilier seven prov- inces. The B.C. statement (hat it will challenge the payments in the courts drew no sympathy else- where. In St. John's, Nfld., Finance Minister John Crosbic said his province wculd have to "close up shop" if Ihe payments were ended. Newfoundland receives more than million annually in payments. ONTARIO WON'T JOIN In Toronto, Ontario Premier William Daws said his prov- ince is "not contemplating a similar suit." "We agree with the principle of equalization. We've never disputed it." In Quebec City, Premier Rob- ert Eourassa issued a state- menl saying the B.C. move shows signs of separatism. Manitoba Premier E d Sehreycr said the B.C. position runs counter to (he federal sys- lem. "It strikes me tliat just about every developed federal state in the world has some form of equalization payments lo offset at least in part (he disparities in per-capita he said. In Re gin a, Saskatchewan Premier Allan Blakeney said he sees no basis in law for the B.C. assertion. In Edmonton, a spokesman in Premier Peler Lougheed's office said no statement will be made before Monday.
