Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 21, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 16-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Friday, Ftbruiry 21, Energy swap suggested Hanging cold-blooded act Prowse EDMONTON OCP) Canada and the United States should establish a reciprocal energy bank says Stan Milner, president of Chieftain Development Co. Ltd. Mr. Milner told a noon meeting of the Rotary Club of Edmonton that the two 1975 Datsun Sportrucks. Now in King-Size or Regular. And still hundreds of dollars less than all other trucks.

LTD. 1102-3rd Ave. South Phone 328-9651 countries should develop an energy swap system allowing the U.S. to take oil from Canada today with a commit- ment to replace it in future. Canada already is importing a substantial amount of coal from the U.S. which should be considered in the energy flow between the two countries when Canadian politicians talk of reducing oil exports, he said. The arrangement could in- volve a U.S. commitment for Canada to participate in new sources of energy as the U.S. establishes new technology. Mr. Milner said the current policy of reducing oil exports has disrupted the conventional oil industry, created an- tagonism against Canada in the US. and probably left Arc- tic Island gas reserves locked in for all time. The policy could result in Ihe Syncrude oil sands plant becoming the last major oil sands project in the foreseeable future, he said. The cost of oil from any future oil sands plants will be so great that the U.S. market probably will be the only one which can afford it, he said. Unless foreign oil prices'con- tinue to increase, imported oil will be pumped into Ontario when Alberta reserves decline. Mr. Milner, a director of the Alberta Energy Company and a past president of the Independent Petroleum Association of Canada, said Premier Peter Lougheed "did a great job in getting Syncrude going." He said Syncrude's rescue has ensured great benefits and ultimately profits for Alberta as well as providing additional oil supplies that Canada will need. Alberta's oil sands, and its 65 billion barrels of reserves in heavy oil deposits, are enor- mous, but little of this poten- tial can be produced at per barrel, Mr. Milner said.

Senator Harper Prowse Alberta) was opposing vehemently Senator Louis Robichaud's Brunswick) private bill that would limit the cabinet's power to commute death sentences. The bill would restrict commutation to cases where a judge or jury recom- mended clemency, or when a jury was divided on clemency. Senator Prowse' a lawyer, rejected Senator Robichaud's contention that capital punish- ment is a deterrent to murder. "If you think the monsters who killed, those people down in Moncton would have been stopped by any kind of legisla- tion you are living in a dream world." He was referring to the shooting deaths in December of two Moncton policemen. Senator Prowse said he has no sympathy for murderers "but let us not confuse ven- geance with justice." Senator Sidney Efuckwold Saskatchewan) also op- posed the bill, which he said could "quite possibly result in an innocent man going to the gallows." However, "there is no doubt that the prevailing mood of the country is reflected in the bill we have before us." "It is lime that we asked the government to take a look at this whole Senator Buckwold said. In 1968, Parliament suspended capital punishment for all but murderers of on- du'ty policemen and prison guards. The last hanging was in 1962 and all death with a final decision still pend- been commuted by the cabinet. Rene VaiJIoncourt is sched- uled to be hanged in May for the 1973 killing of a Toronto policeman. Senator Henry Hicks Nova Scotia) supported the bill "with some reluctance, but nevertheless a very sincere sense, of duty and responsibility." Senator Hicks said, however, that "in this day and age there ought to be a better method than the old-fashioned method of hanging." "I think the law might well be revised in that respect and that some more humane method might be adopted in Canada for the taking of life Senator David Walker (PC- Ontario) said the repeated commutation of death sentences "has a tremendously demoralizing effect on the police offi- cers across the country." He said the murder rate is increasing because criminals know that "come hell or high water, whether they kill or don't kill, they will be out of jail eventually." SEN. PROWSE Turtles are banned because of hazards OTTAWA (CP) Pet stores will no longer be able to import turtles because of potential health hazards, the agriculture department announced Thursday. New regulations, adopted in consultation with the health department, require import licences for turtles, the department said in a news release. The regulations come into effect immediately. Permits will only be issued for special cases involving research projects or zoos, the release said. ''Turtles can be a serious health Health Minister Marc Lalonde said. "They frequently carry bacteria which can be easily spread to humans, especially children, when the turtles are handled."
