Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, February 21, 1972 THE LETHB'IIGE HEfiAlD 1J Oil pipeline opposition may yet be heard in U.S. V V STONE SHOWS OLDEST DATE The late E.

The recent find con- firms Ihe stone shows the oldest recorded date in the New World-equal to 31 B.C. Conservatives get comfort in Trudeau throne speech OTTAWA (CP) The Con- servatives got at least a shred of temporary comfort out of Prime Minister Trudeau's speech in the Commons last Fri- day. They have been worried that Mr. Trudeau might take off on an anti-American theme in the. coming election campaign and make it the prime issue. One Conservative MP said: "You just, can't fight that kind of It's hopeless. "If you come out against anti-Americanism you are auto- matically labelled an American apologist and all the young vot- ers, at least IR-ycar-olds who vote in the next election will tliink you arc in favor of the Vietnam war, nuclear testing and all the rest of it." In the Commons, Mr. Trudeau brought up the subject of rela- tions with Ihe U.S. He said his government has been tough in trade talks with the U.S. and will continue to be lough. Some Conservatives glanced at each other nervously. RELATIONS FRIENDLY But in practically the next breath, Mr. Trudeau said the U.S. respects Canr-da because Canadian interests and that re- lations between the two coun- tries have never been friendlier. That didn't smack of anti- Americanism. On Jan. 9, Mr. Trudeau said: "I'm against economic national- ism if ils effect is to make a country poor. I don't think you can become more independent by becoming poorer." Earlier, the prime minister said a lot of Canadians were losing interest in economic na- tionalism because Ibey could see that restrictions on foreign capital could cost jobs. Mr. Trudeau in a Jan. 9 inter- view' listed what he considered would be the election issues. They would be "industrial growth and industrial policy, the problem of foreign owner- ship and exploitation of our re- sources and development of our manufacturing industries." All these involve relations with the U.S. to some greater or lesser degree. But Mr. Trudeau's statement then does not give any hint of anti-Americanism. He has always discussed Can- ada-U.S. relations in the terms of a problem which lias always exisled. The prime minister usually reads his Commons speeches in a dreary monotone. But on Triday he put consid- erable animation into his 35- rninute speech and made a spir- ited attack on the opposition parties chiefly for failing, in his view, to enunciate clear policies of their own. For their part, the opposition spokesmen pointed to what they saw as government failings, es- pecially in the economic field. Conservative Leader Robert Ihe government stands up for Slanfield. NDP Leader David Lewis and Gerard Laprise of Abitibi, filling in for Real Caouclle, Social Credit leader, all indicated they regard prime election issues as the economy and high unemployment. To Mr. Stanfield, one of the chief failings has been the non- appearance so far of the gov- e r n m e n t 's promised foreign ownership policy. And Mr. Lewis suggested that the policy will never be enunci- aled before the election. It appears that the broad elec- ies in the news STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) Boy Rawlins, who says he's 101, married for the fiflh time last July. Shortly after the wedding he was in an auto accident. But while he was bedridden, his wife made off with their furm- lure, a freezer and his pet cat, said testimony he made in courl. Rawlins was granted an an- nulment Thursday by Supe- rior Court Judge William Do- zicr on flic grounds of fraud. "I'm through with said later. PERTH.

VANCOUVER (CP) David Anderson, Liberal MP for Es- quimalt-Sannich, says he thinks the United States Court of Ap- peal will rule soon that Cana- dians may take part in a court case aimed at blocking the proposed west coast pipeline- tanker route for Alaskan oil. Mr. Anderson said in a speech at the University of British Columbia the appeal court, in Washington, D.C., is expected to hear arguments in about two weeks from lawyers representing him and the Ot- tawa based Canadian Wildlife Federation. Mr. Anderson and the feder- ation filed suit in November in an attempt to join U.S. envi- ronmental groups seeking in- I junctions against the construc- tion of an 800-mile pipeline from Alaska's oil rich north slone to the Port of Valdcz. Thu U.S. Wilder- ness Society, Friends of (he E 'Ih and the Environmental Defence Fund want to pre- vent a start on the project until full studies have been done on its environmental ef- fects. Mr. Anderson and the wild- life federation say Canadian views should also be heard he- cause of the danger to the B.C. coast of oil spills from tankers moving the oil from Valder lo U.S. refineries. A U.S. district court judge rejected the Canadian petition to intervene in December. But Mr. Anderson said he expects to win a hearing from the courl of appeal because of the court's record on ecological issues. He said that if the unprec- edented attempt by Canadians to argue a suit in American courts fails in the appeal court, the case would be appealed lo the U.S. Supreme Court if an early hearing were granted. Otherwise, he and the Cana- dian Wildlife Federation would lurn over Iheir material lo L'ue U.S. environmental groups al- ready in courl. "Even if we lose, if Ihe law- suits fail, which is possible, we'll have accomplished the delay of construction until at least April, which is just about the end of the construction sea- son in Alaska. "And Ihe closer it gels to tbc time of Ihe U.S. presidential election, Ihe less likely it he- conies that the pipeline will go ahead." Mr. Anderson said be Ihinks it is unlikely President Nixon would want lo lose the environ- mental vote by letting the pipe- line go alx'ad just before an election.
