Government should put foot down VANCOUVER (CP) Con- servative Leader Robert Stan- field said Monday the govern- ment should assert Canada's right and duty to share with the U.S. the final decision on any West Coast oil tanker route. He told ihe Vancouver Board of Trade that a pipeline across Alaska is none of Canada's busi- ness. But the tanker route to take the oil from Alaska to Washing- ton State certainly was Can- ada's business. Mr. Stanficld added: "I am not suggesting that we should necessarily try to block the project. "But I would suggest that the Canadian government should courteously but firmly assert its right and its duty to share the responsibility for the final deci- sion with the government of the U.S. "It should do so in the inter- ests of Canadians now; and it should do so as a.precedent for similar situations in the future." Mr. Stanfield raid Canada now should have its best minds working out the course of future relations with the U.S. This was the only way to avoid the "panic" that gripped Ottawa last summer when the U.S. imposed a surtax on im- ports. In commenting on reports that the government will esU blish a screening agency for for eign investment, the opposition leader said: "But just about the last thinj this country needs is an arbi tray tribunal with the power to disallow without appeal other wise legal agreements." Mr. Stanfield said that what- ever the government decision ii this field, it is imperative tha the provinces participate righ' from the start. Some areas of Canada fel they have not yet had enough investment, foreign or other- wise.

South-Tel.: 328-9681 dam planned as corrective step OTTAWA (CP) A dam to retain spring waters will be built in an attempt to in- crease water levels in the Atha- basca River delta, reliable sources said Tuesday. The action, expected to be an- nounced by Environment Minis- ter Jack Davis at a news con- f e r e n c e Wednesday, follows complaints of problems caused by the Peace River dam. Mr. Davis previously criti- cized the f eaee dam, completed in 1968 and named for Premier W. A. C. Bennett, as a short- sighted venture by the B.C. and previous federal governments. Criticisms have been that water levels have been lowered in the delta at the western end of Lake Athabasca, endangering fish and wildlife. This In turn seriously affected trapping, hunting and fishing for the Indian population. Informants said a federal-pro- vincial task force devised plans for a rock dam to prevent spring waters from running off over 60 per cent of the area af- fected by the Bennett dnm. A management board also may be instituted to bring about co-operative control over water levels. PART OF FIRST STAOE The rock dam is part of a first stage aimed al restoring water levels quickly. Parliament was Informed last April that ecologists feel the spring of 1972 will be critical. Low water levels beyond then could result In permanent dam- age to the delta. More than million If ex- pected to be spent on the tint stage or restoration. Long-range studies are being made of the social-economic, and other as- pects of the delta. Mr. Davis last fall blUMd "narrow provincialism and our haste to produce energy with lit- tle or no regard for the future" for the threat to the delta.
