Canada's proven oil reserves are enough to last 21 years and gas reserves 66 years. The. untapped and still irt- krxriTt reserves are the big phis that gives Car.2c-a strons bar- iainir.i: reserves cf proven crjde are 5.6 billion barrels, b'jt there is an r-ated 1 biilion to 15 billion in the Canadian North. Known Canadian reser.-es of gas are r-iliMri feet with an S-'O trhhoc to 775 r-illion crjbic feet niore b the Ncrth. By comparison, known U.S. are 3S billion barrels of crude and 300 trillion feet of gas.

Dill EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government has dropp- ed its proposal to take over trucking firm which faces bank- ruptcy, provincial treasurer Gordon Miniely said Friday. He said in a statement the government has done every- LhinE possible to save the firm, Cotitinental Lines Ltd., from bankruptcy. the company Is to continue operations as they presently exist, it will cost the Treasury Branch approximate- ly S7.000 per day just to marn- sa'd. "Unfortunately, the eov- emment cannot let this situa- tion continue." IMinisier Fred Pea- cock said earlier this week the provincial government may as- sume control of the company. This proposal was attacked by Albert Ludms. Social Credit MLA for Calgary Mountain I View, who said the move would violate a "fundamental princi- pie of private enterprise." Mr. Miniely said Continental i F-xpress Lines, which operates betiveen Montreal and Vancou- ver. started dealing with the i Treasury Branch in 19H due i to a history of financial dilfi- culties. He said the firm now owes the Treasury Branch Sl.S mil- lion. i Mr. Peacoci said earlier the company owes a total of million to about 1.100 creditors. 1 Mr. Mmiely said be and Mr. Peacock have exhausted every effort to assist the company. For the sake of competition as well ss for tbe Albertans ffto were employed by the firm. He added thst the company's ability to recover tras being impaired daily and it had be- come extremely doubtful that the company could be saved. The minister ssid he is con- fideot most ot the firm's 250 employees.
