Ms. Pettit's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Gordon Pettit of Fort McMurray, Alta., and Mr and Mrs. Fred Yakimchuk of Andrew, Alta., say they have not been notified of the couple's whereabouts.

The licence suspension by the Canadian transport com- mission dates from last Friday. A transport commission spokesman said Monday the suspension for charter rule violations last summer was made in this way because the commission feels the "sins of the carrier should not be visited on the public." Air Canada is not resuming ABC flights until March or April, he said. The commission took a sim- ilar approach in suspending CP Air's licence under the old affinity charter rules for one week in November, 1972. No flights were scheduled by CP Air at the time. The Air Canada licence sus- pension was for failing to pro- vide proper passenger lists for three return flights leaving Toronto last month for Rome and Vienna. The commission said Air Canada transported people whose names did not appear on the advance lists. The commission said in its decision that Air Canada has assured the commission that it has taken steps to prevent any further violations of ABC regulations. The commission is current- ly investigating alleged violations of inclusive tour charter (ITC) rules by Air Canada, Wardair and Nordair. The alleged breaches concern improper advertising for ITC flights to Florida, Mexico and the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. ITCs include the price of ac- commodation, travel and other services while ABC flights involve travel only. jMHMry 22, 1t74 THE LETHMUMM HIMALD-t Energy corridor could be used to open north Farewell luncheon External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp (right) Monday held a farewell luncheon for Adolphe Schmidt United States ambassador to Canada.

Native militancy seen EDMONTON (CP) A member of the American In- dian Movement (AIM) told a University of Alberta audience Monday that unless the federal government stops trying to integrate Indians into a society they reject, in- cidents of native militancy will occur in Canada within three years. Robert Free of Montana said AIM was a non-aligned civil rights movements which would prefer not to use violence and would exhaust other channels before doing so. He said Indians would become less isolated as a result of government develop- ment of their land, and would gain perspective on their poverty. Tins would result in the for- mation of more organizations, such as AIM, calling for the recognition of reserves as sovereign nations and a return to traditional values. Mr Free said current leaders of federally-financed Indian organizations in Canada are "government puppets" who are afraid to protest. NEVER AN OCCUPANT Although President George Washington chose the site for the White House, he was never an occupant. John Adams was the first United States presi- dent to reside there in 1800. EDMONTON (CP) Representatives of three Alberta towns told a govern- ment seminar Monday that an energy corridor from the Athabasca oil sands to Ed- monton could be used to open up isolated parts of northeastern Alberta The seminar, including representatives of towns, farm groups, widlife groups, pipeline and power com- panies, was discussing the possible location of a common corridor containing pipelines, power lines, roads and rail links. Delegates from the towns of Smoky Lake, Lac la Biche, and Vegreville said the eastern route would give several isolated communities their first road links to the south and open up a new tourist area east of Fort McMurray. A western route would run due north of Edmonton while a central route would parallel Highway 63. Environmental consultants at the seminar said the eastern route was undesirable Sunday gas sales resumed in Florida TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Gov. Reubin Askew has ordered service stations on the Sunshine State Parkway to resume Sunday gasoline sales. Askew's office says he gave the order after a fuel advisory council told him that "Sunday closings on the turnpike have had a severe economic impact on tourism in Florida." Donald Keck, a central Florida tourist-attraction operator who is a member of the council, put it another way: "Gasless Sunday is not a conservation measure, it's a murder weapon." and the central route would have the least impact on fish and wildlife. A team of town planners warned that the eastern route, which would roughly parallel the Northern Alberta Railway to Fort McMurray, could "upset, undermine or perhaps wipe out" the fragile social structure of existing com- munities. Ownership of the corridor has not been established, but legal consultant Ron Whist of Edmonton suggested that par- ticipating power and pipeline companies own their rights- of-way and elect directors to a board of management. A highways department spokesman said highways and pipelines were compatible but the addition of power lines to a corridor could cause radio transmission interference and aesthetic problems. Albertan rescued NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. visitor from Ed- monton was rescued from a skiff alongside a burning power boat Monday by a coast guard helicopter A spokesman for the U.S Coast Guard said the helicopter crew spotted Alwin E Teuteburg, landed on the ocean about four miles west of here and took the man and his small lifeboat aboard. A coast guard patrol boat later extinguished the fire and towed the damaged 55-foot cruiser to shore. The spokesman quoted Teuteburg as saying he was alone in the cruiser when fire broke out in the engine room. He took to the skiff and was uninjured. The helicopter spotted him during a routine patrol.

OTTAWA (CP) The Sas- katchewan government said Monday the policies that make Ontario rich and Saskatchewan poor must be the prime concern of the federal-provincial energy conference Saskatchewan cannot will- ingly permit further concentration of industry in central Canada while other regions remain dependent hinterlands, the province said in its brief to the conference that starts Tuesday. "The people of Saskatchewan feel that they have a legitimate right to in- come levels equal to the pre- sent more prosperous areas of said the nine-page brief. Most of the document deals with the NDP government's call for a national develop- ment plan designed to dis- tribute industry and other economic activity more equal- ly across the country. It said a comprehensive na- tional energy policy can be only one part of a broad development plan. Saskatchewan said that ade- quate supplies of energy should be assured for Canadians at reasonable prices that are generally equal across the country The cost of such equalization would be borne on the basis of ability to pay. The brief says Saskatchewan has no quarrel with the concept of a price freeze for petroleum products. Alberta has opposed it. "However, the major ques- tion that needs to be resolved is the question of who is going to pay for the price freeze. "Is it going to be the oil-pro- ducing provinces, or it is going to be the nation as a whole with the burden distributed on the basis of ability to pay? Saskatchewan objects to any plan in which the burden of maintaining a price freeze falls upon the oil-producing provinces." The brief stresses in several places that such energy policies must be discussed "within the context of a new national development plan." Saskatchewan outlined its list of the main principles it believes should be included in the plan: transportation policy based not on competition, as at present, but on recognition of transportation as a public utility to provide acceptable service in all regions. of the CNR and CP Rail into com- prehensive national service" or public utility. national energy policy involving equalization of prices. of the principle of equalization to other goods. feed-grain policy that recognizes "Western Canada's natural advantages in livestock production." of industrial ac- tivity in the for- mula by which tax revenue from the richer provinces is transferred to the poorer provinces through new measures such as use of es- tate or inheritance taxes for part of the equalization payments Canadian own- ership of the Canadian econ- omy, to be achieved largely by greater public ownership. Saskatchewan said the development policy does not imply that opportunities should be taken from one region and transferred to another. "It does suggest, however, that all regions have the equal capacity to develop their full potential. "The province of Saskatche- wan contends that the real challenge of this conference is to consider the matters that have brought us together, not in isolation or as a simple concern with one resource, but rather within the total framework of national development." Here's a perfectly legal way to use the Government's own rules to save on your income tax. The Government has a law that says, in effect; "Jf you save now for your retirement, you can deposit as much as into a registered retirement savings plan every year, and we'll let you knock it ofi" your income." Once again this year, you can deposit up to of your earned income into a Canada Trust Registered Retirement Savings Plan, and then deduct that amount from your taxable income.
