He said in a statement that only 46 per cent of the ballots returned by producers favored marketing through the board. A vote of 60 per cent in favor would have been required for a shift from the present open-market system. Mr. Lang said 78.5 per cent of the ballots distributed were returned by the producers. While the poll showed a preference for the present system, “producers overwhelmingly support the Canadian wheat board and continue to have confidence in it.” Turner will press for new IMF deal JOHN TURNER Maritime premiers agree on single price for oil MARK PEDERSEN FREDERICTON (CP) ~ The Maritime premiers head for next week’s federal-provincial energy conference in Ottawa in agreement that there should be a single price for crude oil across Canada. Following a one-day meeting Monday, the three premiers refused to specify irtiat an acceptable price for crude oil would be. Crude oil should be avaUabte across the country at a price which would not jeopardize “the economic development potential” of any region, the premiers said. Legislation is signed into law OTTAWA (CP) — Royal assent was given to four pieces of legislation Monday, the final act before Parliament recessed until Feb. 26. Hie Commuis officially adjourned Friday, pending the royal assent, while the Senate continued to debate the controversial wiretapapping bill, 'fhe division bells rang Monday only long enough for 56 MPs to gather in the Commons chamber and await the call to the Senate where Bora Laskln,,. ne:wly-appolnted Supt'eme Court of Canada chief justice, waited to sign the bills into law. The bills, besides the wiretapping legislation, were the energy allocation bill, the oil export tax act, and the election expenses legislation. All had been debated at leni in the Commons before approved, and the wireta] b 11 actually went House twice. The Senate amended bill, but the Commons jected the amendment. This current session Parliament is expected to end on Feb. 26 — the day It resumes — and it will be followed immediately by a new session, and a throne speech outlining the government’s latest legislation plans. POSSIBLE RECALL The government prefers to adjourn for a recess, rather than prorogue the session, because it is easier to recall the House If an emergency session Is necessary. The energy allocation bill gives the government board power to cope with fuel shortages, anticipated mainly in Eastern Canada, tt will lead to appointment of a special board which might, in emergency circumstances, im^se wholesale-level or individual rationing measures. Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said later in an interview the five members who will sit on the allocation board may be appointed this week. the the re- of Canada as a whole was capable of self-sufficiency in oil and it would be wise to use cheap oil to rain a competitive edge in world trade. The Maritime region is dependent on hnported crude oil which has increased in price since the Middle East conflict. ACCESS NEEDED Premier Gerald Regan of Nova Scotia said some industries in the Maritimes will be threatened unless they have access to reasonably priced oil. Premier Alex Campbell of Prince Edward Island said the $9.75 a barrel his province would soon pay for Venezuelan oil might push the price of electricity generation up 58 per cent and cause the price of heating oil to double within 12 months. Premier Richard Hatfield of New Brunswick said oil prices should not serve as a basis for unfair competition between regions within the country. Premier Campbell said the federal government’s export tax on Canadian oil was not the only source of revenue Ottawa might use to equalize Canadian prices, it might have to regulate prices, provide subsidies In some regions or a combination of both. Mr. Regan said there was no precedent for a producing province to gain revenue from a federal export tax. Increased revenues from Ottawa’s oil export tax should go into Canada’s consolidated funds, he said. The three premiers said Ottawa should have the financial and legal resources to offset unacceptably high costs of oil and petroleum products in any region. They called for measures to guarantee the security of oil supply in all regions and plan to propose the construction of a reversible pipeline between Montreal and the Maritimes. The pipeline would be built first between Montreal and Saint John, N.B., and eventually be extended to Nova Scotia. Premier Hatfield said it is estimated the MontrealSaint John segment could be built for 1150 million. The pipeline would be able 1,200 troops in exercise WINNIPEG (CP) - More than 1,200 servicemen from ground and air units in Western Canada and Ontario are to take part in a winter training exercise in CJiurchill, Man., beginning Wednesday.

NOTICE Sinltary Lindflll - Scali Oparallon The City of Lethbridge will commence scale operations at the Sanitary Landfill January 24th, 1974, after which time ail refuse received at the Landfill will be weighed and subject to fee as established in By-Lm 3168.

Commerdal and Non-Resident rate schedules are available at the Engineering Department to carry western Canadian oil to the Maritimes when foreign oil was unavailable or unreasonably priced. The facility could carry forei^ oil to Montreal refineries in normal times. Premier Regan emphasized that a national coast-tOK»ast pipeline system could have inputs from various regions. Not only Alberta and Saskatchewan oil could t>e carried, but fuels from the Arctic and offshore Atlantic coast could be pumped to interior markets. The three premiers said they were encouraged by federal Energy Minister Donald Macdonald’s indication that Ottawa is studying the possibility of building the pipeline. At the same time, the federal government and the provinces should develop alternative sources of eneiw, including harnessing the Bay of Fundy tides, new coal resources, nuclear power and undeveloped hydro resources. The three premiers also want Ottawa to plan and construct a national electrical transmission grid which would assure electricity at reasonable costs. In addition, they asked for recognition that co-operation continue with the northeastern United States in energy matters. OTTAWA (CP) - Finance Minister John Turner says the bitonatioiial Monetary Fund (IMF) must ImiHtnre coKiper-atlon to bead off “new-style protectionism*’—the danger that sun>lying countries, luce the Arab oil states, will withhold their resources fnun world markets. Mr. Turner, leaving today for a Rome meeting of the IMF’s cwnmittee of 20, toM rwrters Monday night be will press for a reorganization of ^ 126-country body to provide more frequent conr sultation in the face of continuing international economic troubles. He said the energy problem and other fast-changing circumstances have brought other countries around to Canada’s view that the monetary system should be changed by small steps, not by a major revamping of exchaoge-rate systems and IMF lending operations. Because no country could say how high its oil biU will go in the commg months, none would commit itself to a rigid framework of exchange-rate adjiutments. Tlie committee of 20 finance minister, including Mr. Turner, has been assigned to work out a new way for trading states to exchange their currencies at tolerable values. The task was prompted by the dollar crises of 1971 and 1972, when Washington insist^ on a system that would not continue to hurt the value of its dollar. But Mr. Turner said the committee’s two-day meeting which starts Thursday will be dominated issue. by the energy Rising oil prices meant that Europe, the Unit Jai inited States and will be paying at least billion more a year for oil— money moving to the producing states that cculd upset world currenty markets. Mr. Turner said the IMP must encourage the oil states to put that cash into long-term investments to prevent instability. He said the IMF must also g[uard against pi«datary practices (H the oil states and others that might se^ to turn trade in CMnmodities in tbeir favor. Formation of cartels of producing states, manipulation of exchange rates, export controls and export quotas were some of the possible techniques cited. Instead of countries protecting their markets against imports with tariffs and other barriers, they might try to withold exports or demand ever-higher prices.
