Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-23,Lethbridge, Alberta Wiiwirtiy. JaitMary a», HT4-THt UTWWMWl MRALD-I Western front shaken at energy conference By JOHN DODD OTTAWA (CP) ~ Ihe common front HUblislHd by tb« four Wnteni provliwes lut year was shaken TUcfday by diviiioDS over owrn policy. Aiberta, Saskatcbewao and Manitoba called at the federal - provincial energy conference for a new deal for the West in Confederation, using energy policy as a starter. Britisb Columbia advanced a specific «lergy propwil. But the <^tening session of the two-day confer«ice heard conflicting views frmn the Western provinces over the basis for a new energy policy. Premier Peter Lougheed of Alberta stressed that his government, seeking to maintain control over its 85 per cent of Canada’s oil and gas production, will not yield from a long-establisbed position. He said Alberta must maintain full control over its oil and gas, gain fair values for their sale and receive recognition that the province Is the owner of its resources. He implied that such recognition will not be accepted until Ot> tawa abandons Its export tax OR crtide oil, wbk* Alberta says is a violatioa of preyin' close of Tttesday't wsslon that be has TeMrvatiou «bout the federal proposal to raise oil prices in Western Canada by n on May 1 and for a subsidy to eastern consumers who depend on more eipen-sive imported oil. “It’s logical to have reservatiwis about a proposal of that m^tude,” he said in an interview. Tlie premier, who lias not said what Alberta coneiders to be a fair price, did not «ecify what his reservations are. He said Alberta might not be able to state its full position on the federal jHvposal until he takes the document “back to Edmdnttm to study.” Oil prtctog is the first item on the agenda and delates to the conference had expressed hope that the issue could be resolved quickly so that many other energy problems could be dealt witti.

He «aid: “1 would therefore pfMym» that a federal eiqiort tax wUl be remaining at s«ne lev«l and that we will be dlicuntrn a fair distribution of the revenue.”    ,' The Western preraiera’eallt for better tnatnwot of tlic West as a more equal partner in Confederation ediofld tbeir cconmon stand outlined last summer at the western economic conference itt Calgary. Premier Allan Blakeney of Saskatchewan, however, said that little progress had been made since the conference. EQUALIZE PRICES Premier Allan Blakeney oC Sasikatcbewan, the other major oil-producing province, called for a strong federal n^e In equalizing oil prices across Canada and, ultimately, equalizing economic opportunity. He agreed with Alberta that controf of oil resources must remain with the producing provinces and, like Alberta, opposed the price freeze on western oil as an undervaluation of a diminishing resource. He did not menti<»i the export tax which Mr. Lougheed cqiposed at length. Mr. Blakeney’s views on how one domestic oil price—below soaring world rates'-should be financed, differed from British Columbia’s position. He said prices in eastern regions depOKlent on foreign oil should be held down by subsidies paid by all areas, de* peiidnig on tteir ability to pay. Premier Dave Barrett of B.C. suggested prices be stabilized through a fund contributed to solely by the produdt^ provinces. He said Alberta and Saskatchewan should give to the stabilixation fund half the value of increases in prices of their oil and gas exports to the United States. This contribution would decline by 10 per cent each year and cease entirely by the end of 1978. B.C. also proposed a restructuring of federal corporation taxes to recover profits made by the oil industry in excess of a “fair rate of return.” The province also wanted to reduce income taxes by using new revenues from taxes on the oil industry to raise the personal exemption on Income taxes to f7,500 to every Canadian wage-eamer supporting a family. ' “The federal government intends to introduce legislation to provide a cushion against this prospective increase.” All money from the export tax, lmp<»ed Oct. 1, is scheduled to go back, directly or indirectly, to the oil-producing provinces until Feb. 1. After that it will be divided equally between Ottawa and the producing provinces. The tax will have raised about $150 million by the end of January and the returns will rise dramatically when it is raised Feb. I to 16.40 a barrel from the current rate of 12.20. Despite the increase, Mr. Macdonald said the federal share will not be enough to finance the full subsidy program and additional funds must be found. He made two proposals for raising the money, both tied to the federal equalization payments that Ottawa now makes to poorer provinces. In one case, he said, the producing provinces’ share of the export tax money be disregarded in calculating equalization payments. This would prevent the huge sums of money from distorting the current equalization pattern and placing additional demands on the federal treasury. In the second ease, the subsidy program would be implemented “in lieu of equalization payments to the eastern provinces.” He did not elaborate, but said neither proposal, if adopted, would extend beyond April 30, the date when the national petroleum price freeze is expected to end. At that point, domestic oil prices would rise and the subsidy plan presumably would be changed to reflect the new East-West price relationship. Mr. Macdonald appealed to Alberta and Saskatchewan to support the federal profwsals and avoid abandonment of the price freeie before the winter ends. When the freeze ends, windfall proflU will result from oil prices rising «est of the Ottawa Valley. Mr. Macdonaid proposed that this windfall be shared by the oil industry, the producing provinces and the federal go^^ment. Montaiui »trike ends HELENA, MMt.
