(CP) Members of the state house natural resources committee gave unanimous approval Thurs- day to a bill designed to prevent Canadian coal mining from harming the air and water of northwest Montana's Flathead River valley. The joint resolution by Rep. Ora Halvorson (D Kalispell) and 14 other legislators urges the Canadian and US governments to take steps to assure that the area will not be degraded by mining along the border. The resolution asks the involved governments to pay special attention when issuing coal mining permits. Mrs. Halvorson testified that extensive strip mining is planned eight miles north of the border on Cabin Creek in British Columbia. She said the operation ultimately will affect the north fork of the Flathead River, as well as the main stream and Flathead Lake. Reps. James A. Sloan (D Kalispell) and Gary N. Kimble (D Missoula) testified on behalf of the resolution. Sloan pointed out the north'fork forms part of the border of Glacier National Park and its high quality must be protected as a tourist attraction. Kimble said two mountains of coal, one on each side of Cabin Creek are to be mined with the coal shipped to Japan. He said the mining operation will be a constant source of sulpheric acid to the rivers and Flathead Lake. If precautions aren't taken, he added, "within a very few years Flathead Lake will be dead."

EDMONTON (CP) The sale of public and private land in Canada to both individual and corporate .foreigners should be prohibited, Alber- ta's major farm organization, Unifarm, said Thursday. In its annual brief to the Alberta cabinet the farm organization asked that the "controlling interest in cor- porate farms be in the hands of Canadian residents." It also asked that land use zones be established through legislation to enable agricultural land to be retain- ed for production and that only land of lesser value to agriculture be developed for urban recreational, transpor- tation and other needs for the over-all benefit of present and future society. Unifarm also reiterated a statement made by the western agricultural conference Thursday at Regina that governments must have the courage to develop and implement new methods to cope with work slowdowns and strikes, major factors in the inflationary spiral. The Unifarm submission said that federal government promises on transportation policies made during the Western Economic Oppor- tunities Conference at Calgary in 1973 "have not materialized." Detailed concerns were outlined to the cabinet on the recent increases in freight rates. The province also was asked to pressure Ottawa to an- nounce a long-term dairy policy, to continue financial assistance for the expansion of dairy operations in Alberta and to facilitate the gathering of milk from low volume production areas capable of further development. Recommendations also were made on the improve- ment of the crop insurance program, improved compen- sation for losses to predators, hunters and trespassers and for expanded irrigation facilities in suitable areas. Unifarm also asked for research into improving natural water resources for. agriculture.
