The premier, campaigning for the March 26 provincial election at a noon meeting, Socred candidates nominated By THE CANADIAN PRESS Four more Social Credit party candidates tossed their hats in March 26 provincial election ring this week. Charles Gray won nomina- tion to contest the Calgary West riding. The seat is currently held by Premier Peter Lougheed, who defeated Mr. Gray in the last election. The party meanwhile nominated two persons in the Edmonton area. Betty Horsch won the nomination for Edmonton Strathcona and optometrist Dr. Irvine Zemrau got the party nod in Edmonton Ottewell. At Valleyview, Robert Amundson, an Eaglesham dis- trict farmer, was nominated to contest the Smoky River constituency. said the accord will "greatly strengthen Alberta's prospects to achieve, a broadened economic base dur- ing the next decade, less dependent upon the sale of declining reserves of crude oil." Mr. Lougheed said the federal government "still faces the roadblocks of tran- smitting the policy decisions reached .into concrete results" and the co-operation of the federal bureaucracy, the Canadian Transport Com- mission and both major railways will be required. "Alberta intends to keep up constant pressure to assure progress is not lost." He said the decision that any across the board freight rate increases, such as those just experienced, will not oc- cur again also is a major step because western manufac- turers and shippers have borne the "major share of the. increases.'" "This decision, coupled with a proposed national transpor- tation information act to en- sure provinces will receive all necessary confidential cost data from the railways will put Alberta into a much stronger position in assuring that freight rate increases are not prejudicial to the West." The concept of giving smaller centres the same freight rates as nearby larger centres will "aid industrial development in small centres one of the basic industrial strategies of the Alberta government. EDMONTON (CP) No decisions have been made on any provincial government committrient to an Alberta based petrochemical industry, Industry Minister Fred Peacock said Tuesday. He said in an interview he had no idea where Alberta NDP leader Grant Notley found indications that the government might provide the industry with million in various means of support. calendar United Motors Co.

"The shocking thing to me is that you would allow a person to get a report about ongoing discussions when nothing is responded Mr. Peacock. "When the negotiations are done, if the province has to come in, then we'll advise you." In Fort Saskatchewan later Tuesday, Premier Peter Lougheed said a petrochemical industry in Alberta was a prime 'oppor- tunity for upgrading resources in the province. However, the government has promised to develop a balanced economic base throughout Alberta, he added. While' Fort Saskatchewan has been prominently men- tioned as a site for a major petrochemical development, "with its existing base it will have a fair share." "But I don't want to suggest there won't be development in the south and the east >as CARDSTON: John Thompson, Conservative Today In Cardston promoting premier's luncheon.
