Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 2, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, January 2, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Defence fund established I Syncrude project not for two Indian leaders CALGARY (CP) The Canadian Civil Liberties Association has established a defence fund to pay legal costs for two In- dian leaders charged as a result of the two day occupation of the Department of In- dian Affairs (DIA) office here in November. The association, in a prepared state- ment circulated to reporters and editors, said it will .help pay the legal costs of Ed Burnsiick of Edmonton, Canadian Direc- tor of-'the American Indian Movement and Roy Littlechief, president of the Calgary Urban Treaty Indian Alliance The two were charged with mischief for their part in the occupation which was designed to draw attention to the problems faced by treaty Indians who move to the city. They are believed to be the first native Indians charged in Canada as a result of militant actior. Even though there were no weapons used in the occupation, and city police refused to lay charges against the demonstrators, Indian Affairs Minister Judd Buchanan ordered the DIA to proceed with criminal charges against the two men. No criminal charges were laid-as a. result of the armed occupation of a park in Kenora, Ont., last summer, or the armed blockade of a highway at Cache Creek, B.C., earlier this year. The two men will make their first court appearance Jan. 17. If convicted, they could face fines of up to Earlier the two had said they would use the trial to bring the issues which led to the occupation before the public. Mr. Burnstick says he has not talked to five Southern Alberta Indian chiefs who met with Mr. Buchanan in Ottawa earlier this month to see if the minister is prepared to make any changes to the DIA operation here. The demonstrators, including 25 young native people from Alberta, had demand- ed changes in staff and operating prac- tices at the DIA office. A report by an ad hoc group of academics and civil libertarians later charged the DIA with racist practices and violations of established social welfare practices. Saskatchewan will try to help small oil wells REGINA (CP) Mineral Resources Minister Elwood Cowley has announced a four- point New Year's package valued at about million an- nually aimed at keeping Saskatchewan's smaller oil wells in production. A further announcement regarding exploration initiatives has been promised. The biggest savings for oil companies under the plan, an- nounced at a news conference, will be about ?14 million to make provincial royalties deductible for the purposes of provincial corporate income tax.

There was quick reaction from the Saskatchewan oil in- dustry with Bill Spicer of the Canadian Petroleum Associa- tion saying the program should encourage the in- dustry. "We're encouraged the government at least recognizes the plight in which the oil industry finds itself, but we're somewhat disap- pointed by the provisions. "We don't think it's nearly enough." "I'm not sure that there will be a great roar of joy from the oil industry that it is suf- Mr. Cowley com- mented. But he hoped the in- dustry would be "reasonably pleased." The entire package had not been discussed with industry executives, but parts of it had been revealed before the an- nouncement, Mr. Cowley said. The oil industry has been calling for some provincial government help since the federal budget was brought down in November containing provisions that made royalties a form of taxation paid by producers to the province subject to federal taxation. Alberta recently announced a incentive program to bolster the oil in- dustry. Mr. Cowley said the in- dustry's financial return in Alberta would remain higher than in Saskatchewan although detailed profit figures haven't been worked out. He indicated future initiatives to encourage ex- ploration and development- would be designed to en- courage activity in Saskatchewan rather than provide oil companies with funds which could be applied out of the province. Mr. Cowley told reporters higher payments to cover increased production costs will be made under provisions of the Oil and Gas Conserva- tion Stabilization and Development Act and would normally have occurred without the present controversy over oil industry taxation. Increase payments EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government intends to increase payments to beneficiaries under the Workmen's Compensation Act, says Bert Hohol, provin- cial Labor Minister. He said in an interview that the act will be amended dur- ing the spring session of the legislature to add another million to payments. The payments have not kept up with increases in the cost of living, said Dr. Hohol. CALGARY (CP) Alberta Liberal leader Nick Taylor says the Syncrude oil sands project is not viable finan- cially, claiming it was originally under estimated to attract development capital and favorable government terms. Environmental factors were not taken into full con- sideration when the original estimate of under billion for the plant in northeastern Alberta was considered, Mr. Taylor said in a year-end interview. Today, the actual cost of an oil extraction plant at the Athabasca oil sands could run from billion to billion, although the more commonly reported revised estimate is up to billion, he said. "This runs the cost of the barrels per .day plant out of sight That's roughly 10 times what it costs to find oil, for instance, in the north sea off Great Part of the reason the cost of the Syncrude project has risen so much lately is "because they're taking more factors into consideration, such as cleaning up the en- vironment after the extrac- tion process." The original estimate just barely put in the plant, with very little of the extra cost added, he said. Mr. Taylor- said that Syncrude Canada Ltd., initial- ly a consortium of four major oil companies, had a tendency to estimate low "to make the deal look attractive en- courage the province to make a net profit deal with them." Now, the consortium is fac- ed with the effects of inflation plus the extra costs which were there in the first place, "but everyone wanted to ig- nore them in the beginning." One of the main factors in estimating environmental costs involves the tailings ponds, "which Syncrude es- timates could cover 9.3 square miles which means ponds full of lye which is taken from the crude oil." "We must ensure that that doesn't get loose, so there's quite an expense there, either neutralizing the lye or building substantial dikes to hold it back." There is also the problem of rehabilitating the land, such as putting back the sand, and regrassing the area, Mr. Taylor said. "Those costs, if not ignored, were terribly under-estimated the first time around." Syncrude at present is a consortium of Imperial Oil Co. Ltd., Gulf Oil Canada Ltd., and Canada Cities Ser-' vice Ltd. The fourth company, Atlantic Richfield Canada Ltd., recently withdrew from the project, citing soaring costs and uncertainty over the future price of oil from the sands as among its reasons. Mr. Taylor today reiterated his view that the province should be wary about being "sucked along" on what he .referred to as a mass-hysteria idea of industrializing Alberta to make it look more like On- tario industry wise. Commenting on a report that Alber.ta Gas Ethylene Co. Ltd. is considering a multi million dollar petrochemical development for the Red Deer area, Mr. Taylor said he hopes the province will avoid such projects. He said the result of su.-h projects is that thousands of workers are needed for the plants and related industries, while the plants themselves "are going to be obsolete in 10 to 15 years." "We've imported thousands of workers for these in- dustries, and society is stuck with that while the capital which built the plants has been repaid with profit."
