Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Wedn.idiy, January 15, Canada to hold U.S. to promise WASHINGTON (CP) Canadian negotiators, at a high-level policy meeting with United States officials here Thursday, plan to hold the U.S. to its promise that the controversial Garrison irriga- tion project will not cause in- jury to health or property in Canada. An informed Canadian Em- bassy official recalled Tues- day that "the U.S. made a for- mal ibmmitment to Canada in that the NoA Dakota reclamation project "would not result in injury to health or property in Canada" in compliance with the 1909 boundary waters agreement. He said that Canada accepted that "solemn under- taking" and that the question to be addressed at Thursday's meeting is whether such in- jury might result. Purpose of the meeting will be "assess the im- pact on Canada" of the diver- sion with a view to "develop- ing common and, if it is agreed there could be harmful effects, to con- sider possible alternatives. Canada and the U.S. last met on the subject of the huge irrigation project last August in Ottawa. Canada has formally pro- tested continuation of the development, claiming it might "significantly and seriously degrade water quality" in the Red and Souris rivers of Manitoba. The project is designed to irrigate acres of semi- arid farmland in North Dakota and to provide new sources of municipal water supply and recreation. Leading the Canadian team at the Thursday meeting will be Ambassador Marcel Cadieux. With him from the external affairs department in Ottawa will be J. S. Nutt, director-general of the Bureau of Western Hemi- sphere Affairs; D. R. Hill, deputy director of the U.S. division, and D. W. Smith, legal operations director. Jean Lupien, senior assis- tant deputy minister, will represent the environmental department. Two officials from Manitoba also will be aboard the Canadian E. Weber, senior assistant depu- ty minister of the Manitoba mines and natural resources departments, and W. G. Bowen, assistant deputy minister of the Manitoba en- vironmental management department. Heading the U.S. delegation at the closed meeting will be Jack Horton, assistant secre- tary of the interior for land and water resources, and Richard Vine, newly- appointed deputy assistant secretary of state for Cana- dian affairs. Also on the U.S. delegation will be Gilbert Stamm, com- missioner of the Bureau of Reclamation; Fitzhugh Green, assistant ad- ministrator of the En- vironmental Protection Agen- cy, and Earl Lubensky, senior staff member for inter- national affairs of the Council on Environmental quality. The meeting comes hard on the release in Winnipeg of a 136-page report highly critical of U.S. government efforts to assess the impact of the Garrison project on Manitoba. It raised many of the same concerns already expressed by the Canadian and Manitoba governments as well as by environmental groups on both sides of the border. The day after the meeting, Nutt will meet with U.S. offi- cials on the issue of oil super- tankers plying the waters off British Columbia, another ecological issue which has resulted in controversy between the two countries. The tankers would carry oil from Alaska's rich North Slope oil field. Join Dunlop Ford and Save Hundreds During 200 Being Held at the New Sportsplex!

Tourist business brisk OTTAWA (CP) Tourists were forced to make adjust- ments in the face of the energy crisis, inflation, wars and threats of war, but they still spent an estimated billion in Canada in 1974, federal tourism officials say. Dan Wallace, marketing di- rector for the tourism office, says the figures are based on a 1971 survey that showed Cana- dians spent 53.1 billion in Can- ada that year and .non- residents added million to the tourism pot. Current es- timates are calculated on an eight to 10 per cent annual growth. And although Americans made fewer trips to Canada in the first 10 months of 1974 than in the same period the previous year, more tourists from other countries, more Canadians travelling at home, and higher prices for accom- modation helped maintain the growth rate, Mr. Wallace says. Pollution standards unaffected OTTAWA (CP) Canada's weaker emission control standards for automakers will be unaffected by the U.S. proposal to relax its pollution control requirements as an energy conserving measure, the- environment department says. President Gerald Ford said Monday he will propose to Congress that stringent anti- pollution measures due to become effective in 1977 not be implemented. He also ask- ed for the relaxed standards to continue for five years after 1977. S. 0. Winthrop, director general of "the environment department's air pollution control directorate, said Tues- day that Canada announced in July, 1973, it was breaking step with U.S. pollution control standards for autos, effective at the start of 1975. U.S. standards currently are stricter, he said. As a result, Canada will not likely revise its control stand- ards in response to any U.S. changes. Tourism officials say gas shortages and the energy- saving 55 m.p.h. speed limit on U.S. highways depressed travel between Canada and the U.S. Statistics Canada tourism figures for the first 10 months of 1974 bear this out. There was an over-all drop of six per cent in the number of trips made to Canada by Americans. The figures show a drop .of U.S. visitors arriving by compared with in the same 10 months of drop of 7.6 per cent. Air arrivals from the U.S., however, jumped 13.5 per cent to compared with the previous year, giv- ing more weight to the premise that travellers favored commercial transport over private cars in light of the energy crisis. Tourists in both countries, fearful of being caught without gas and reluctant to take long trips at the lower speed limit, sought refuge from the daily grind at vaca- tion spots closer to home, Mr. Wallace says. The number of Canadians taking trips outside the country dropped by three per cent in the first 10 months of 1974 to compared with in the same period the previous year. While there was a net drop of 3.4 per cent in the number of Canadians going to the U.S., there was a 5.8-per-cent increase in trips to countries other than the U.S. I Hearing Aid Workshop LETHBRIDGE Tuesday, January 14th Wednesday, January 15th and Thursday, January 16th a.m. to p.m. GOLDEN WEST MOTEL Mayor Magrath Drive and 12th South MR.
