He said provincial stan- dards, accepted by the depart- ment of the environment, are low and often not enforced, and many lifeguards still squeak by with minimum standards. Government spokesmen say a review o'f lifeguard stan- dards is beginning but Mr. Kirstein said he has heard it before. Part of the blame belonged with employers who pay low salaries apd offer no upgrading programs. Existing standards. call for retesting of lifeguards once every 18 months but many work on a part time basis so the qualification period is 'too long, he said. Mr. Kirstein said the minimum age 'of 18 is the re- quirement overlooked most often but he believes the re- quirement could be reduced. Syncrude situation serous FORT McMURRAY (CP) President Glen Bowden of the Fort McMurray Chamber of Commerce said Monday the public does not expect closure of the Syncrude Canada Ltd. project, but "I've got news for the public it's on its way to closure." He said in an interview that it has appeared someone would come to the aid of the project so there has been little public concern. "I can tell you, it's a serious situation and we in Fort McMurray should be express- ing our concern." He said he plans to discuss the problem in a meeting this week with Premier Peter Lougheed. Mr. Bowden said he is convinced .that although Syncrude may be willing to extend its 'Jan. 31 deadline by a few days, it is firm in its in- tention to close the plant un- less the consortium comes up with billion. He quotes Syncrude presi- dent Frank Spragins as saying that if the concern did not recejve the billion, the company would send out 500 telegrams cancelling every order and would shut down the olant instantly. Clark plan shot down OTTAWA (CP) Govern- ment decisions are influenced increasingly by senior ad- visers who are not accoun- table to Parliament, says Joe Clark (PC Rocky Moun- Officials within the prime minister's office and the privy council office have become "a government within a he told the Commons. He asked for a change in policy to allow senior advisers to testify and answer questions before parliamen- tary committees. Government house leader Mitchell Sharp said cabinet ministers should answer for government decisions, not public servants. He also rejected a sugges- tion by Mr. Clark that there are too many officials and ad- visers in senior government levels. It is important to get advice from many sources before major decisions are made, Mr. Sharp said. Student radio bids okayed OTTAWA (CP) Applications by two universi- ty student unions to operate AM radio stations have been approved by the Canadian Radio Television Com- mission. The licences, issued to the students' unions at the University of Ottawa and .the University of Calgary, expire March .11, 1978. Dateline Alberta Tundcy, January 28, THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Church vote delayed Confrontation fizzles LAC LA NONNE (CP) Commercial fishing opened without a hitch on the ice' Monday as a threatened confrontation between sports and commercial fishermen failed to materialize. The lake, 40 miles northwest of Edmonton, is heavily used by sports fishermen summer and winter and many have blamed com- mercial operations for poor sports angling in recent months. There had been threats that if commercial fishing were allowed to continue, there could be violence, such as cutting of nets. But there' was none of that Monday as about 70 commer- cial fishermen arrived, setting out about yards of nets. EDMONTON (CP) A planned vote on the union of the United, Anglican and Christian (Disciples of Christ) churches will have to be post- poned, says Dr. Nelson Mercer of Calgary, president of the United Church's Alberta Conference. A joint commission of the three churches was to present a 108-page report on union to the Anglican and United churches' national bodies in June but so many proposed revisions have been received by the commission it can't get the final report ready, Dr. Mercer said. A revised plan cannot go to the national bodies now until 1977 because they meet every second year, he said. "From soundings we have taken in the presbyteries and at the last general council which voted to accept the interim plan there was quite remarkable support in the United Church for the plan as it he said. He said among the problems is that some Anglicans are having trouble accepting the role of bishops outlined in the plan. GIVE TO BANGLADESH TORONTO (CP) Cana- dian United Church members have donated .more than 000 to a Bangladesh hunger fund, the church said Monday. The fund was started by moderator Rt. Rev. Wilbur K. at the end of November. Strike vote sought 'CALGARY (CP) Caretakers and maintenance workers in the Calgary Catholic school system Sun- day overwhelmingly rejected a conciliator's proposal and voted to apply for a strike vote. Dave Adams, national representative of the Cana- dian Union of Public Employees, said 157 out of 159 votes were cast against accepting the proposal of con- ciliator Les Taylor. He said the same number voted in favor of holding a government supervised strike vote Feb. 3, The application for the strike vote was sent to the provincial department Monday. Alberta should WETASKIWIN (CP) If the Syncrude consortium pulls out of the oil sands project in northeastern Alberta Jan. 31 a deadline they have set un- less further financing can be obtained the Alberta government should sue for breach of contract, Grant Notley, leader of the Alberta New Democratic Party says. Mr. Notley, in an interview, said "if they are going into these things and make a contractural agreement with the government of Alberta, they have to keep their part of the bargain." 'Pouring money down rat hole' CALGARY (CP) Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes says government should not invest in the Syncrude oil sands pro- ject in northeastern Alberta. "There is no way the provin- cial government can put tax- payers' money into a speculative development like Syncrude if private industry says it is too he told the Calgary Labor Council an- nual meeting. "That would be like pouring money down a rat hole." Instead, the provincial and federal governments should encourage foreign and Cana- dian investors in oil sands development, the mayor said.

Within specified limits you can deposit part of your earned income each year, in a Canada Trust Retirement Savings Plan and deduct an equal amount from your taxable income.
