The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, January 0, THE LITHiftlOQI HERALD 19 Power plant conversion uneconomic EDMONTON (CP) It appears that converting Ed- monton Power's natural-gas fired electric generating plants to natural gas would be highly-uneconomic, savs Bill Kirkland, general manager of Edmonton Power. Mr. Kirkland said Tuesday that studies are still being carried out into economics of converting the city-owned utility's Rossdale and Clover Bar plants to burn coal. The studies began after Alberta Premier Lougheed said in November that he would like to see Alberta's electric utilities using coal rather than natural gas. A proposed million power plant, now being con- sidered by Alberta's utilities to serve the province's an- ticipated power consumption after 1980, could very possibly burn coal instead of natural gas, Mr. Kirkland said. Edmonton Power, along with three other companies in the electric utilities planning council, have spent million in research studies during the past 18 months on the viability of a new power plant, says R. E. McLary, research and development manager for Edmonton Power and chairman of the planning council's steering committee. Mr. McLeary said forecasts indicate that Edmonton Power's production will not be able to keep up with demands after 1980. The city must know if and when a new power plant will be built before the end of this year, he said, because six years lead-time is required to bring any new plant into operation. Vietirn and rescuer Robert Eskens, 12, of Ajax, Ont., shakes the hand of Constable Greg Robbins, one of the officers who rescued the abducted Grade 7 student. Kidnapped boy rescued DEEP RIVER, Ont. (CP) Constable Greg Robbins, who thought he was dealing with a hookey-playing kid, told Tues- day how he rescued a kidnap victim and, with the first non- practice shot of his six-year police career, wounded a man now charged with kidnapping. Robert Eskens, 12, of Ajax, a community just east of Metropolitan Toronto, return- ed to his home Tuesday after the rescue in this Ottawa Valley town. DUNLOP FORD'S SELL-OUT Exhibition Pavilion January 23rd to 26th Wayne Lockhart, 22, of Osh- awa, near Ajax, was to be re- turned to the area with a bullet wound in his leg to face charges of kidnapping, woun- ding, breaking and entering and car theft. The boy disappeared Satur- day night as he was walking home after serving as altar boy at mass. A companion saw him get into a small van and a massive search was un- der way Monday when he was rescued from his abductor. Constable Robbins didn't even know about the boy's dis- appearance 250 miles away when he was driving his cruiser in Deep River- Mon- day. "I pulled over to the side to stop two people, one of whom was young and looked like he should be in school. "I asked both for identi- fication, and the older one said he was from Pembroke and gave me his name, which turned out to be incorrect.

A All-Canada route slower OTTAWA (CP) An all-Ca- nadian crude oil pipeline to Montreal wo.uld take two yean longer to build than an extension from Sarnia, Ont., Energy Minister Donald Mae- donald said Tuesday. He told the Commons the construction timetable is the main factor the government must consider in deciding a route for the extension. Sarnia extension could be built by the late-1975 deadline set by the government but an all-Canadian route, starting from Winnipeg, would take two years longer, he said in reply to a question from T.C. Douglas Cowichan-The The existing interprovincial pipeline starts in Edmonton and cuts across the prairies to the Canada-United States border south of Winnipeg. From there, it swings east through the northern states, re-entering Canada at Sarnia. En route, the line passes within about 60 miles of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont, a possible third starting point for the ex- tension. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield pressed the govern- ment Tuesday for an ex- planation of what he termed delay in starting the exten- sion, first announced in September. STATEMENT SOON Prime Minister Trudeau said the government has been held back by consultations with interested provinces but Mr. Macdonald planned to make a statement soon. The minister said later he hoped to make the statement within a couple of weeks. Mr. Trudeau said Quebec and Ontario are the main provinces involved. Quebec favors one particular route, he said. He did not elaborate but said Ontario has not endorsed any one route. Mr. Stanfield said the government'appears to have chosen an extension that will deliver only barrels of oil daily to Montreal. This was less than one quarter the amount needed in Quebec and the Atlantic provinces. Mr. Douglas asked twice whether Interprovincial Pipe Line Ltd., the operator of the Edmonton-Sarnia link, is op- posing both the Winnipeg and Sault Ste. Marie routes. Mr. Macdonald declined to answer. D.G. Waldeon Inter- provincial president, said Monday the company favors the Sarnia route. Mr. Macdonald told reporters Utter that Liberal caucus members favor an all- Canadian route and the com- pany also might be persuaded. "Under certain financial considerations, I suspect they'd build a pipeline almost anywhere." Mr. Stanfield said he favors an all-Canadian route in theory but it should be built only if a substantially higher vofume of crude can be delivered to Montreal than over the Sarnia route. "We all like the idea of a Ca- nadian route. It appeals to us as Canadians.... But I'd find it difficult to subject Quebec to two more years of uncertainty without a substantial increase in long-run supplies." Mr. Macdonald said an ex- tension capable of delivering barrels daily to Montreal could be built from Sarnia with only a limited amount of additional work on the existing U.S. line. A far higher degree of expansion would be needed on U.S. sec- tions to raise the capacity to barrels. A final decision on the route should be made in about 10 days, he said.

The older person was doing all the talking at this point. RAN TO CAR "As soon as they got to the cruiser, Robert ran around to the front of the car and yelled: 'Help me. Help me. He's got a knife.' "At this point, the man took a knife from his pocket and chased the boy, but he never got near. I stepped in between him and Robert and then he backed off. "We started backing down the- highway, him with his knife in his hand and me with my gun." Constable Robbins told how he stalked the man down the road. "All the time the man was yelling about killing, killing. He said he was going to kill himself, me and anybody else who got in his way."
