There must be no restrictions on the chance for Alberta bas- ed industry to compete with large multi national corpora- tions, he said. The premier for ecast "storm cloud developing" over foreign ownership of the Cana- dian economy. He said the Alberta govern- ment must be free to decide for itself whether to allow foreign investment. "Our administration wants to look at investment from all over the he said, "be- cause in the past most of these investors have been good cor- porate citizens." This was an obvious hands- off warning to Ottawa. The federal government Is believed considering a screen- ing agency as recommended in the Gray Report, a study of foreign ownership prepared for the federal cabinet by Herb Gray, minister of revenue. Alberta should have an of- fice in Washington to represent natural resources and repre- sentation in Ottawa to ensure the Alberta view is considered Carbon monoxide killer A coroner's jury ruled today that Raymond Blackburn, of Coleville, Sask, died accident- ally from carbon monoxide poi- soning Jan. 7 in his basement suite at 1619 23rd St. S. The jury decided a faulty door on the home's boiler and clogged flue passages in its heating system were at fault. in matters such as transporta- tion, the premier said. In Lethbridge for the first time since his Conservative parly came to power in August, Premier Lougheud received a standing ovation from per- sons when lie was introduced as a potential future prime minister of Canada. Small communities in Al- berta must be strengthened, lie said. "One thing in our Favor is the acceptance in t he last few years in tiie metropolitan cen- tres of Edmonton and Calgary that growth for growths sake is not necessarily good." The premier said small com- munities must have the oppor- tunity to grow to take popula- tion pressure off the aJready- crowded large cities. However, lie did not explain what the government plans to do to help small centres, other than to say that particular pro- grams must be left to the legi- slature which begins March 2. The premier commended ef- forts in Letbbridge that created the university here. He said that in deciding which com- munities to support, (be gov- ernment will favor those that are willing to help themselves. Two lop priorities for the j "first phase1' of the new Loug- I heed administration, he said, j arc crippled children and men- tal health care. He pledged government sup- port to volunteer agencies such as tlie Canadian Mental Health Association. In a wide ranging talk to the chamber and ;it a news conference earlier, he made a number of points: within two years the cabi- net will hold a public meeting in Lethbridge; although not a single Tory MLA was elected south of Cal- gary, the government will be open to all views; the economy of the prov- ince must be diversified away from its current heavy reliance on agriculture and the petro- leum industry; Alberta dons not. want to be limited by the concept of "one Prairie water supply, a key re- is under study ant! will soon require major policy decisions by the government: upgrading of the Southern Trans Canada Highway is needed, but must be consider- ed within an over all program of highway improvement.
