Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 19, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta February 19, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 5 Lougheed reiterates Alberta's advantages HijRadlO SEDGEWICK (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed moved to the hustings Tues- day and pledged to use natural resource wealth to keep down the costs that Albertans must pay to make a living, par- ticularly the farming com- munity. At his first appearance on the platform since he called the March 26 provincial elec- tion, Mr. Lougheed attracted about 350 persons to the hall in this community of about 700 people 85 miles east of Ed- monton. Reiterating Alberta's ad- vantages the lowest taxes in the country, the lowest un- employment rate, and the highest spending per capita on education Mr. Lougheed Soldier savings plan charges are denied OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment is pushing armed forces personnel to invest in a registered retirement savings plan offered by Canada Trust Ltd., Allan MacKinnon (PC- Victoria) said Tuesday. The charge was denied in the Commons by Defence Minister James Richardson. All personnel are free to invest with any company they choose, he said. He told reporters later that Canada Trust was recom- mended by the defence department after a study of savings plans offered by various companies. But there was no obligation to join and no complaints from enlisted men. Mr. MacKinnon, Progressive Conservative defence critic, said base com- manders were advised by memo that Canada Trust had been selected. They had been told to let company salesmen enter military property. Canada Trust is owned by Huron and Erie, a company whose board of directors includes a former national president of the Liberal party, he said. But as far as he knew there was no connection with Mr. Richardson's family interests in securities. Fire toll up EDMONTON (CP) Bill McKay, Alberta fire com- missioner, says there was a substantial increase in the number of fire-related deaths in Alberta last year compared with 1973. Statistics made public here indicated there were 91 deaths by fire last year compared with 65 in 1973. received his biggest response when he pledged to use natural resource wealth to keep living costs down in Alberta, particularly as they affect the farming com- munity. "We've been living in this part of the world for decades on a freight rate transporta- tion basis that has not been competitive with farmers in other parts of he said. "I think it's only right that we should take advantage of our resources to keep your costs lower." Mr. Lougheed said his government's plans for economic diversification will see the establishment of agricultural processing operations in rural areas. "This is to strengthen the viability of smaller com- munities so that your young people won't have to flock to the city to find a job or go to Sarnia, Ont, to find it." To keep. farm production costs at "the lowest in Canada and possibly anywhere in the the premier said his government plans to con- tinue the natural gas rebate plan, expand fertilizer produc- tion, and consider treating propane on the same basis as other farm fuels on which farmers are given a discount. The premier said the elec- tion was called last week to gain support for the way in which his Progressive Conser- vative government has handl- ed Alberta's resources. This, he said, includes the Heritage Trust Fund the government has proposed, a fund "not for you or for me, but for our children and our grandchildren." Admitting his hair had "gotten a little greyer" dur- ing the 43 months since his government took power, the premier said he has always enjoyed getting away from the "artificial" debates in the legislature, "out into the real country."
