Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE.LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, January 15, 1975 Gas price increase to cost extra OTTAWA (CP) Trans- Canada Pipelines Ltd. said Tuesday it has applied to the National Energy Board for a natural gas price increase that will cost homeowners about in extra fuel bills an- nually. The application, filed with the board Dec. 31, seeks to boost prices by an average 16 cents a thousand cubic 20 per cent. A spokesman for the pipeline company said no hearing has been set on the latest application and he had no idea when it might go into effect. TransCanada, sole supplier of gas from the western provinces to eastern markets, also left the' door open for further price-increase applications later in the year. During a hearing Tuesday on a separate application for a rate increase, assistant com- pany treasurer Bruce Escoffery was asked if any further requests will be made between now and Nov. 1. "I can't answer that ques- tion he said. The pipeline company's last major increase came in November when the energy board gave it permission to raise rates by about 22 cents a thousand cubic feet to cover higher prices charged by its suppliers in the west. It cost homeowners about a year. All TransCanada's gas is sold to utilities in the eastern provinces for distribution. The application now before the board is for an increase of about two cents a thousand cubic feet, or a year for INSTALLATION ELECTRONIC AIR CLEANERS 17092Ave.S. Phone 328-5973 the average homeowner, which the company says is needed to cover higher costs for gathering the gas in the West, wages and municipal taxes. Hearings on that application opened Tuesday morning and continue today. The company says it hopes the additional two cents will be charged effective Feb. 1. John K. Archambault, general counsel for TransCanada, said that if the two-cent increase is approved, the company's average charge to utilities will be 80 cents a thousand cubic feet. The new application, boosting prices an average 16 cents a thousand cubic feet, will cover higher costs of changes in depreciation and income taxes, Mr. Archam- bault said in an interview. At present, TransCanada's rate structure provides for a two per cent annual writeoff on depreciation for plant and equipment, mainly pipe. "That rate is based on the physical life of the plant, and the full cost would be written off in 50 he said.

EtfM'i pWMtM: "8nfc SrttUKtUT OTTAWA (CP) The Na- tional Design Council ended 14 years of relative silence Tues- day by issuing its first public annual report calling for a na- tional design policy. The council, made up of in- dustry, government and public interests, was set up in 1961 by the federal govern- ment to recommend and plan policies for the advancement of design in Canada. "Good design has emerged as a vital necessity to our said Sonja Bata, council chairman. "It is the view of the council that a ma- jor effort must be made to develop and harness Canada's design potential in order to deal effectively with many of the problems and challenges which confront our society to- day and in the immediate future." Mrs. Bata said leadership for a design policy must come from the federal government. Government procurement agencies dwarf all other Cana- dian organizations in terms of purchasing power and the variety of products ordered, she said. "Government legislation and direction are also vital factors in determining whether a new com- perhaps by the discovery of mineral wealth in an isolated perpetuate the worst features of long- established Canadian towns or hold our promise of pleasant working and domestic en- vironments for its citizens." Mrs. Bata also said the council had not made past an- nual reports public because its mandate was to report to government. But it now feels public interest must be stirred to force industry and governments to take a more human approach to design. "Design should become a public she said. "The ugliness of suburban sprawl... is not necessary. No devel- oper is going to change without public demand." She said the council's aim is to get government to create an environment for a national policy that industry could work within. To that aim, the council will hold a two-day conference Feb. 24-25 in Ottawa to promote design excellence as a national objective. "World needs for food, energy and other basic necessities are imposing strong demands on our available said the report. "So we must design new processes for minimizing waste and for recycling materials in short supply. Some of the report's recom- mendations include: and coporate tax rates should be at levels no more onerous than those charged in other countries. incentive programs should be reviewed and consolidated to provide the most effective assistance for innovation and design. of additional in- centives to Canadian in- novators and businesses and an incentive approach should be adopted to foreign cor- porations to encourage the use of Canadian design capabilities.
