He was ac- companied by Hal Hoffman, the NDP canclidale for the bridge federal riding, and Pat Waters. Hie parly's organizer for Alberta south of Red Deer. "I am not a Waffle supporter, but I liiink Ihe KDP can gain on diversity." said Mr. who was iji Lellibridge for the NDP convention that elected Mr. Hoffman as the candidate. Mr. N7ofley said Dr. Hugh Homer, deputy premier of Al- berta, is "a powerful figure" but added it would be "unfair to say he is Uie dominating fig- ure in the Lougheed govern- ment" as it has been suggested in some quarters. "Lougheed is making his own show and making his own mis- he said of the Conser- vative premier. The NDP leader charged that Mr. Lougheed's government is "far from being exciting." Mr. Nolley said, "It is very conser vative and concerned about big business and lu'gh income peo- ple." "The Social Credit Parly has not been an effective opposi- he said. "No one can be an elective leader of the Social Credit Party. Mr. Strom is the captain of a sinking slu'p." On federal politics, Mr. Not- ley predicted that Opposition leader Robert Stanfield will be the Muskie of Canada. "I will join the widespread speculation that it Bob Stan- field fails to win In the federal election, Lougheed wil! be one of t h e m (to get the federal op- position Mr. Not- ley said. "He (Mr. Lougheed) McGovcrn campaign Is a copy of our operating handbook a lew million dollars." "Like the McCovern cam paign. once the campaign (in Canada) gels under way, there will be tremendous changes in the Gallup polls, because Cana- dians are looking for Mr. Notley said.

"As long as the Social Credit Party is in viable opposition, there may not be too much dif- ference. But now the Social Credit Party has lost in the po- litical shift, and we arc asking people lo take a second look at he said. "f predict that onre (lie cam- paign gets under way, it will be like the McGovem campaign in the United Air. Not- ley said. "Canadians are much more open to dramatic changes Mr. Hoffman, who defeated Hudy Haugeneder for the NDP nomination for the Lelhbridge federal constituency, said both the NDP and Social Credit sup- porters came from the same grassroots and it is easy for voters to switch from Ihe So- cial Creditors to the NDP. On Suffield, Mr. Notley said the NDP is "opposed to the government's policy of letting Suffield become a testing ground for chemical and biol- ogical warfare." has a chance. Mr. Notlev said there is much similarity between the McGovem campaign in the United Stales and the NDP campaign.

Irrigation announcement expected here Friday Agreement on the federal- provincial cost-sharing pro- gram for irrigation systems is expected to be announced Fri- day when Alberta Environment Minister Bill Yurko addresses Ihe Canadian Water Resources Association meeting. Dr. Hugh Horner, Alberta deputy premier and agriculture minister, told a press confer- ence last week that "word could he expected in the next few weeks." An informed source told The Herald that the announce- ment could come Friday. Under the terms of the agree- ment, the federal government is supposed to spend money to put the major .structures in good repair and to build nec- essary ones. larly liked the agreement its present stale because Natural gas reserves must be used carefully By GIIKC McINTYRK Herald Slalf Writer Natural gas is so cheap il's being wasted, says the presi- dent of Weslcoasl Transmis- sion Co. Ltd. of Vancouver. Unless this waste stops, pro- vincial price regulating agen- cies such as the Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board may have to step in, said Ed Phillips. It is more nxpensivo lo install pollution control devices cr. plants fired by fuels like coal, than to convert them lo natural gas, he said in an interview. Yet use of gas in such cir- cumstances K wasteful, since gas could be exported at prices high enough (o pay for pollu- tion control equipment and more, he said. Mr. Phillips said be is en- couraged at signs that concern is growing over waste of gas. For example, he said there are gas-fired electricity plnnls heating homes, where direcl gas heat could do the job more efficiently. He predicted gas prices will rise following hearings by the energy resources board cur- rently in session at Calgary. He also predicted the national I energy board will "soon" an- nouncn new reserves of gas in fronlier areas, followed by an increase in the current gas ex- port qnotn. Mr. Phillips said export sales keep unit costs down in the in- dustry, resulting in lower gas prices to domestic consumers. Provincial government au- thorities are currently keeping gas prices unduly low, he said. Twenty-five years ago the average residential price of gas v.'nr. 29 while today ii. is 13 cents a thermal unit, he said. "What other product in short demand sells at prices like An increase in the wellhead price of gas is justified, he said, to pay for mcreasing costs of exploration and production. Exploration for gas in Can- ada has been slowed by low There is insufficient return for the discovery of new gas fields." Hampering gas exploration and development is a time lag of up to a year-nnd-a-half be- fore a company like Westcoast Transmission can pass in- creased costs on to the consum- er, he said. Mr. Phillips said every cent in the wellhead price for gas is worth "several million dollars a year" lo his firm. Weslcoasl, which gathers gas in northern British Columbia and the Northwest Territories for customers in B.C. and the United States, plans million worth of expansion this year, compared with million in 1971, he said. ED PHILLIPS ''Model legislation' here Legislation governing Alber- ta's oil and gas industry is a model for other countries of the world, said Mr. Phillips, and has already resulted in new laws elsewhere. There is world-wide Interest in the provincial government's proposed new tax on under- ground oil reserves lie said. Alberta truely became Can- I being drawn up In Australia to ada's energy province in 1947 control oil and gas is patterned with the discovery of the Leduc oilfield. The discovery was large, but more importantly, it induced continuing exploration leading to Alberta becoming one of the larger oil and gas producing regions of the world, he said. Mr. Phillips said legislation on Alberta law. Interest will continue to be focused on this province, he said, with development of the Athabasca oil sands. Alberta is also estimated to have one-half of the total ac- cessible reserves of coal in Canada- Over-reaction to spills The public has overreacted public thinking, he said. to the danger of oil spills says Since then, the public Mr. Phillips. been reacting strongly to Advances in technology can news of oil pollution.

The idea behind this move is to remove the jurisdiction for the irrigation costs from the federal department of regional economic expansion to the pro- vincial department of the en- vironment. Control of the ir- rigation systems would also re- vert to the provinces.
