Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta *j - THE LETHBR1DGE HERALD - WtdnMdoy, January �, 1971 Paper says court action taken in Peace River dam squabble CALGARY (CP) - The Herald says court action has been started against British Columbia hydro and power authority to limit the effect of the W. A. C. Bennett Dam on the Peace River. The paper says a statement of claim was filed in British Columbia Supreme Court about a month ago on behalf of 200 Metis and Indian fishermen and trappers living at Fort Chipew-yan in northeastern Alberta. The statement asks general damages for loss of livelihood in 1968, 1969 and 1970 and requests an injunction requiring the dam to be operated in such a manner as not to affect spring floods in the river, the paper says. The statement claimed the dam in northern British Columbia was catching water since 1967 and caused the river's delta at Lake Athabasca in Alberta to receive less1 water, resulting in hardship for native trappers and fishermen. While the Peace does not flow directly into the lake, peak flows in spring and summer flood into the lake and keep low areas wet and lush, the paper says. The paper says former British Columbia New Democratic Party leader Tom Berger was representing the natives and did not mention if the hydro authority had filed a statement of defence. Hees: U.S. will have to come to us PETERBOROUGH, Out. (CP) - The United States is aware that in the long run, it will have to approach Canada "on our terms" for many of its energy requirements, Conservative MP George Hees said Tuesday. "That is the reason for the pressure to sign us up as soon as possible in an agreement which would allow them free ac-to our resources, and a cess GEORGE HEES . . . Pressure on free hand in developing them," said the former federal trade minister. Mr. Hees told a Trent University audience that while he opposes the kind of energy agreement the U.S. is pushing for, there is no reason why, if Canadian interests are adequately protected, Canada should not export its surplus energy in the same way it exports other surplus commodities. "I believe that the position we should adopt should be one of positive nationalism-not anti-a n y t b i n g, but pro-Canadian, aimed at taking whatever steps are practical and possible for promoting our economic expansion and preserving our political and cultural independence." Mr. Hees who represents Prince Edward-Hastings, rebuked Energy Minister J. J. Greene for his "rude, bull-in-a-cbina shop" approach to deal-ings with the U.S. He said Canadians were generally shocked by Mr. Greene's speech to the American Petroleum Association in Denver last May 12, referring to a "malaise" in American society and suggesting that the American dream had in some ways turned to nightmare.

"There is no place for this kind of thing in the relationship between our two countries." Mr. Hees advocated three steps to help promote a Cana- dian culture distinct from the American culture: Cancellation of the special tax privileges en* toyed by Time and Reader's Digest, government action to prevent the takeover of Canadian publishing houses by U.S, interests, and further moves to strengthen the Canadian content of TV and radio. Ottawa forecasts new GNP record OTTAWA (CP) - The government is confident that a resurgence of economic growth later this year will send Canada's gross national product for 1971 over the $90,000 billion mark. The GNP-the total value of Want French compulsory school subject OTTAWA (CP) - The city board of education has voted to make French a compulsory subject in all its high schools by the 1973-74 school year. D. S. Lawless, education director, said he doubted the board has the jurisdiction to enforce the move. The motion was proposed here by trustee Sinclair Abell, who said fast action is needed because it is almost impossible for high school graduates in Ottawa to obtain jobs without a working knowledge of French.

Wholesale index dWn OTTAWA (CP) - The general wholesale price index moved down in November to 283.8 from 284.5 in October and was less than a point above its 283.0 level in November, 1969, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported Monday. The index is based on 1935-39 prices equalling 100, and reflects price changes in a wide range of industries and at various wholesale levels of trade. Changes in wholesale prices are not always reflected in retail prices, and tend to fluctuate more frequently. The bureau said five of the eight main wholesale trade groups showed declines In November, but prices of chemical products and vegetables moved higher while non-metallic minerals remained generally unchanged. MUSKIE IN ISRAEL TEL AVIV (AP) - Senator Edmund S. Muskie arrived in Israel Wednesday for the first stop of a tour that also will take him to Egypt, the Soviet Union and West Germany. The U.S, Democratic presidential hopeful said he supports U.S. commitments to maintain the "viability of Israel. . . and I don't think our effort should be marginal." all goods and services produced by the country-ran at an annual rate of $84,120 million in the third quarter of last year. It now has probably passed $85,000 million. Finance Minister Edgar Benson said in his Dec. 3 budget speech to the Commons that he expects the gross national product in the second half of 1971 to be running 8.5 per cent over the second half of 1970. Finance department sources indicate this depends on Canada moving more rapidly out of its economic doldrums from about mid-year onwards. It is estimated that for the year 1971 as a whole, GNP should be up more than seven per cent from 1970. Final figures for 1970 won't be available officially for another two or three months, but it now appears they will work out about $83,700 million. By either measure, the GNP for 1971 will touch $90,000 million or go beyond it, perhaps to $92,000 million if Mr. Benson's projection proves correct. That would put Canada poised to produce $100,000 million in 1972. ALLOW FOR INFLATION These figures are estimated based on current spending power of the dollar and allow for some measure of price inflation to continue. The authorities who now say that GNP for all of 1971 should grow by a little more than seven per cent estimate that at least half of this will be in what they call real terms-that is, a real increase in the volume of goods and services produced. The balance-3.5 per cent or a little less-will be a measure of the price inflation the government expects in 1971. Price inflation measured In terms of the gross national product usually runs less than rising retail prices as measured by the consumer price index. The latter index for December will be issued by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics next week. The rate of its climb has been easing off, and in November was only 3.2 per cent higher than a year earlier. In its report on GNP for the third quarter of 1970, DBS said the price-rise factor had flattened out after a sharp increase in the second quarter. Altogether, at the end of September, the price rise in the GNP was only 2.1 per cent.
