Lougheed confirms petrochemical plants planned FORT McMURRAY (CP) Any new petrochemical plants built in Alberta won't be located in Fort McMurray, Premier Peter Lougheed said Wednesday. Mr. Lougheed said in an interview after a campaign stop that encouraging petrochemical development in this northeast Alberta com- munity would run counter to his government's policy of diversifying industry in Alber- ta. "It would be unlikely we would establish new plants in Fort he said. "People in other areas of the province may question the wisdom of pushing more in- dustries into a boom area." Mr. Lougheed also verified a statement made by Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Don who also visited the area, that the government was looking to es- tablishment of "a series" of petrochemical plants in the province. Mr. Lougheed said "complicated arrangements between a number of interests" must still be negotiated before his govern- ment is ready to announce its plans for petrochemical developments in Alberta. The premier declined com- ment on a statement made by NDP leader Grant Notley that the government was prepared to substantially subsidize any new petrochemical plants in Alberta. Mr. Notley said this week he had obtained con- fidential provincial cabinet Taylor maps platform for senior citizens LoU Cilv WARMER WEATHER CONTINUES Synopsis The fine weather will still prevail for today and tomorrow.

Revealing his party plat- form on the elderly at a news conference, Mr. Taylor said such a foreign aid program could form part of a senior citizens' expertise centre. He said there is a demand, particularly in Africa and Asia, for expertise at a more basic level than that supplied by universities and professional groups. For example, retired farmers could demonstrate the use of a mule and walking plow. The expertise centre could also enable senior citizens to organize social service Candidates9 calendar CYPRESS: Barry Bernhardt, Social Credit Today Canvassing in the Grassy Lake area.

Mr. Taylor also said supplemental allowance payments to persons over 65 should be increased to guarantee a minimum monthly income of or a year. "In view of the total wealth of the Province of Alberta, 'there is no reason for our senior citizens to suffer in the face of continued inflation." In another major policy plank, he said the payment of taxes by senior citizen homeowners should be waived from age 65 until death, and then paid without interest from the estate. The provincial government would guarantee a prime interest rate on the taxes payable so the municipality wouldn't lose money, or, alternately, the province could pay the taxes annually and be reimbursed from the estate. This would give the elderly much needed cash flow, said Mr. Taylor. "Our senior citizens should not have to live poor and die rich." He also said a senior citizens' advocate office should be established to co ordinate the three levels of government enable senior citizens to effectively deal with the ever increasing problem of government and bureaucratic red documents indicating the government was prepared to proceed with a petrochemical scheme that would cost (850 million in provincial com- mittments. "Mr. Notley is dealing off brief the 'premier said. "I don't know how they got into his hands." Mr. Lougheed also said his government might encourage the development of an agricultural industry in Fort McMurray. Decisions withheld CALGARY (CP) NDP Leader Grant Notley said Wednesday that the Progressive Conservative government in Alberta has been reluctant to disclose some important decisions. Campaigning for the March 26 provincial Mr. Notley told a luncheon meeting the opposition had to exert pressure to learn the names of businessmen who received loans from the Alberta Opportunity Co. He also said the government refused to disclose the salary and benefits of the president of the Alberta Energy Co., which gets half of its funding from the provincial government.

Wholesale price of sugar cut NEW YORK Two of the leading sugar refiners in the United States announced Tuesday reductions in their wholesale prices. Sucrest Corp. and Amstar Corp. announced Tuesday they reduced prices to U.S. wholesale customers by two cents to 47.5 cents a pound for granulated sugac and 47 cents a pound for liquid sugar. Refiners attribute the 60- percent drop in wholesale sugar prices since last Nov. 25 to a reduction in raw sugar costs. On world sugar markets Tuesday, futures contracts were down sharply. He said the province now is working on a study to assess the agricultural potential of the area. If the es- tablished a potential and it did not conflict with current agricultural developments in Alberta, provincially owned land might be freed for far- ming, the premier said. He also said he had a "positive feeling" about the performance of northeastern Alberta commissioner R. V. (Vic) Henning. Mr, Henning had been accepted by people in Fort McMurray because he had approached them on a "co operative" basis, he said. Mr. Lougheed's speech to about 300 party supporters dwelt largely on issues he has emphasized since the cam- paign for the March 26th provincial election began. He spoke of how future Albertans would benefit from his proposed Heritage Trust which would be funded by sur- plus oil revenues.
