Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 23. 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 3 Gas consumers will receive larger rebates EDMONTON (CP) Alberta natural gas consumers will receive slightly larger provincial discounts later this year because of accelerated federal income tax rebates for private utility companies, utilities minister Roy Farran said Friday. Mr. Farran said the accelerated rebate will total about million. The increased provincial discount would result in a six-per-cent reduction in consumer's gas bills, he said. Provincial treasurer Gordon Miniely said the rebate will result in slightly larger provincial discounts for consumers served by Northwestern Utilities in Edmonton. The effect of the rebate will be taken into consideration during a public utilities board rate increase hearing being held for Calgary Power, he said. There would be no change in Edmonton power rates because the municipally owned company does not pay federal income taxes. WORLD'S TALLEST TOWER CONSTRUCTION COMPLETED TORONTO (CP) The final bucket of concrete for the section of the CN Tower was poured Friday, completing the final inch of the massive structure.

Davis: government plans to set up own oil company 1969 INTERNATIONAL 1600 3 TON NEXT WEEK THIS WEEK was 1970BUICK LaSABRE 4 DOOR NEXT WEEK THIS WEEK was 1971 INTERNATIONAL TRAVELALL S3150 NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. (CP) Environment Minister Jack Davis said Friday Canada will set up its own government owned petroleum company this year. Mr. Davis, in a speech to the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, said legislation would be presented in the next session of parliament to "give us one company we can call our own and still leave room for the others." He said decisions on whether the proposed company would be wholly or partially -owned by the government or whether to allow the provinces to buy in still haven't been made. "The oil industry, is dominated the world over by a few large firms." Mr. Davis said. "These firms have set their own prices. They've built their own structure. They've had things more or less their own way." The minister said Canada doesn't have one oil company that has Canadian majority ownership, with the result that Canadians "haven't had much say at the policy- making level even when it came to producing oil in Canada for use by Canadians." HIGH COST He said it would cost Canada billion to find all the oil and gas needed to take Canada through the 1980s, but Canada is in a fortunate position because it has reserves. The Alberta tar sands have a 200-year supply of oil, Mr. Davis said, and the price of this oil can provide a ceiling on Canadian oil prices. Increased volume of oil from the tar sands could bring the price of oil down, he said. Mr. Davis said Canada will have a one-price system for oil across the country, although costs would be higher, in some places because of transportation costs. For. example, the price of oil in Montreal will be somewhat higher than the price at the Alberta wellhead. The price of oil produced in Canada will be increased, the minister said, but how much still hasn't been decided. "A low fixed price is unrealistic." Mr. Davis said. "But dramatic increases must be resisted. "We can control our fuel prices within limits." NEXT WEEK THIS WEEK 1955R-180 WITH BEET BOX REWARD!
