Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-24,Lethbridge, Alberta Tlmrwdiy. JawMry M, If74 - TM UTHMIOai HiMLD -S Lougheed: Ve made no commitments^ OTTAWA (CP) - Alberta, which produces tt per cent of the country’s oil, made "no commitinents ... and no concessions" at tbe national energy conference, Premier Peter Lougheed said Wednesday at the end of the conference. Premier Allan Blakeney of Saskatchewan said his province lost at the cwiference, despite a special concession allowing it to raise prices immediately. “We had to come up with some sort of compromise that mve Saskatchewan less than ft wanted,” said the premier whose province produces about 15 per cent of Canada’s oil. Inundated by reporters, Mr. Lougheed said that as far as his province Is concerned, “we’re starting from scratch” again in terms of oil negotiations with Ottawa and the other p.rovinclal governments. “There was no longterm commitment or undertwing,” he r«plied, when asked what had gone on behind closed doors at a three-hour luncheon meeting with Prime Minister Trudeau and other premiers. He said his province la guaranteed 100 per cent of its oil revenues until the end of this month and then 50 per cent— with the balance going to federal coffers—through February and March. “We don’t agree with it in principle but we’re not going to turn the cheque back.” CONTINUE TALKS Mr. Lougheed said negotiations with Ottawa will continue in the near future, “whenever that might be,” and he will concentrate on getting a “fair value” for Alberta oil. “We're prepared to discuss what fair value is.” “All that was really agreed to was to go along with the voluntary price freeze,” This, implemented by Ot* tawa at the producer level, now is about f# a barrel—until the end of March. Prime Minister Trudeau, in a statement at the end of the conference, said this level would be allowed to increase in “reasonable” stages. Mr. Lougheed stressed that future tallis also would be aimed at achieving a settle- GBNIRAL FARM PreMnts The Weather SUNRISE FRIDAY 8tl3 SUNSET 5:15 H L Pre Lethbridge...... 41 28 » 4 Pincher Creek . 41 37 Medicine Hat ... 20 10 Edmonton ...... 14 7 .05 Grande Prairie., 7 -1 .05 Banff........... 3S 32 Calgary......... 37 15 Victoria ..... 52 46 ,4Í Penticton....... 41 37 .19 Prince George .. 36 32 .16 Kamloops....... 35 32 .17 Vancouver...... 47 44 1.20 Saskatoon ....... 1 -19 .12 Regina......... 4 -16 .04 Winnipeg ....... 14 -17 .05 Toronto......... 38 23 ,01 Ottawa......... 29 IS .02 Montreal’....... 28 15 .12 ' St. John’s...... 40 26 .24 Halifax......... 42 34 .23 Charlottetown ... 36 27 .35 Fredericton..... , 37 28 Chicago ....... 34 28 New York ...... 59 39 Miami ....... . 80 74 Los Angeles ... 70 47 Las Vegas..... , 57 34 Athens ........ . 48 36 Rome......... , 5S 41 Paris....... , 50 45 , .

Manitoba Premier Ed Schreyer said he is not completely happy with the agreement, “but it could have been worse.” It showed that one part of Canada was willing, “even if grudgingly, to see the transfer of several hundred million dollars to another part of the country,” TIDE MAY TURN “Som^ay, the tide may turn,” Mr. Schreyer said, giving Eastern Canada an oi^r-tunity to help the West in a similar manner. David Lewis, federal New Democrat leader, said he is pleased the voluntary price freeze will be maintained until the end of March. He attended the conference as an observer. New Brunswick Premier Richard Hatfield said a serious threat to equalization formulas has been delayed and that was a victory for the have-not provinces. But he added he cannot say 'he is happy because an inequity in oil prices, begun when the federal government froze prices in last November, will be perpetuated “I’m more convinced now that tbe energy crisis will be a new problem for Confederation,” he said. Ontario Premier William Davis told reporters the government leaders “bought some time.” But what was more important was that the first ministers had “set mechanisms to work to help determine how we get to the next step,” Because of this, Canada was “a little nearer to a national oil policy.” Quebec’s Robert Bourassa said the two-month subsidy plan is a “spectacular gain for Quebec consumers” and a “very positive move in advance” to save Quebecers from the imported petroleum price increase expwted next month- He said he is heartened by the “very encouraging wd-come” given Quebec’s proposal that an intergovernmental board be set up for future planning in tbe ^ner^y field. Premier Blakeney said Ottawa “had gone too far” in Its oil-pricing proposals at the conference by stepping into provincial jurisdiction over resources “but there was room for compromise.” He would have agreed on a longer-term oil price if Ottawa had made concessions to help Saskatchewan. Mr. Blakeney said the conference was a partial success. It brought the provinces closer to a long-range energy policy. Premier Dave Barrett of British Columbia said all that was accomplished was agreement on a GOKlay breather to deal with federal government proposals. He warned that gasoline prices could climb to 75 or 85 cents a gallon at the end of the price freeze, partly because the federal government is allowing the multinational oil companies to make “windfall” profits Death penalty bill killed in Montana HELENA, Mont. (CP) - A bill fell short in committee yesterday that would require the death penalty for the murderer of a law enforcement officer performing his duty The Montana House judiciary committee killed the measure in a vote of 6 to 3 Sponsor Rep. Onn Kendall of Thompson Falls, the community in which two lawmen were slam several weeks ago, told the committee the state may be loo soft on criminals and a mandatory death penalty could deter people from shooting at lawmen However, Rep. Gary Kimble of Missoula said there is no evidence to indicate that a mandatory death sentence deters any kind of violence crime. Earlier, the committee approved a bill that provides for a mandatory death sentence in kidnap cases In which the victim does not survive. IS-warship PARIS (Reuter) - France will begin buildmg a 15,000-ton nuclear powered helicopter and aircraft carrier next year — the first nuclear-powered surface warship in European navies. NDP premiers stick together PREMIER LOUGHEED Wolves kill less cattle this year EDMONTON (CP) -Although the wolf population in Alberta “is in better shape than it has been in 20 years,” there have been less incidences of livestock damage this winter than last winter, says a government biologist. Gerry Kemp, senior management biologist with the provincial fish and wildlife branch, said in an interview that wolves do not normally kill domestic animals such as cattle. Many wolves responsible for livestock destruction have been found suffering from mange, a disease which causes them to lose their natural timidity, be said. Mr. Kemp said ‘‘the wolf problem” was caused by an increase in the wolf population combined with the expansion of ranches to the fringes of forest areas. But wolves have a natural tendency to self-regulate their populations. Larger concentrations than one wolf per 10 square miles usually results in high pre-adult mortality rates, he said, predicting a decline in the wolf population. Asked about recent wolf hunts by Rimbey area ranchers, Mr. Kemp said they are permissable as long as they are conducted on private property and do not violate any aspects of the Wildlife Act. OTTAWA (CP) - Weftem Canada*« three New Democratic Party premiers «iked Ottawa for more money Wednesday while Alberts’ii Progressive Conservative premier talked about the money he says Isowed him. Tbe NDP premiers of Manitoba. Saskatchewan and British Columbia stuck close to traditional party lines by calling for greater federal involvement in developing alternative energy sources. “A strong provincial presence in energy will not be intruding on provincial rights,” Premier Schreyer of Manitoba told the national energy conference. Alberta’s Peter Lougheed has devoted much of his time at the conference to attacking what ho considers unwarranted and unconstitutional intrusl<Mis by Ottawa into the province’s control over energy resources. When the subject changed Wednesday to alternative energy forms, Mr. Lougheed said Alberta would use some of the huge revenues anticipated from higher royalties and prices on oil and gas to improve transportation faciUties. A prime objective of such improvements would be to expand facilities for shipping a greater volume of Alberta coal to Ontario, he said, USE COAL Mr. Lougheed told Premier William Davis of Ontario that Centra! Canada should look harder at Alberta coal because the U.S. soon might cut off coal exports. Alberta coal is more expensive than U.S. coal to Ontario because of higher transportati<ni costs. 'The traditional NDP line broke down Wednesday when Premier Dave Barrett of British Columbia advocated southern states use more electricity. In the winter, when Canad* uses more power, th« electricity could flow northwards. Mr. Barrett and Mr. Schreyer took differing approaches to calls for more federal financing Mr. Schreyer, whose govertunent is developing a vast hydroelectric project In northern Manitoba, accused Ottawa of taking a narrow approach by concentrating offers of new financial assistance to nuclear power faclUties, B.C. PENALIZED? Mr. Barrett said Ottawa is spending 1235 milUon on an electrical transmission system for Manitoba’s project while neglecting to invest in B,C.’s power system. This showed that B.C was penalized for being a “have” province. The smooth taste of quality that is unmistakably Seagram’s. serious study of an exportimport deal on electricity between Canada and the U.S. NDP caucuses generally have opposed increased exports of resources to the U.S. Mr. Barrett said Canada would not lose any electrical power under his plan. If a transmission line could be established between parts of Canada and the southern U.S., power could flow southwards in the summer when the Seagrarris FIVE STAR Canada’s largest-selling rye whisky.
