Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETKBRIDGE HERAID Wednnday, July 12, 1972 .C.-Washington sign 'pact' to fight oil spill pollution DOUGLAS. B.C. (CP) Pledging to wage an International battle against oil spill nollutiuii, Premier W. A. C. flennctt and Wasliington Gov. Pan Evans signed a memorandum of co-operalion in ceremonies at the Canada-US, border. B.C. Attorney-General Leslie Peterson r i; a d Lho memorandum to about 150 persons wno gathered to witness the signing, He said the program of cooperation would create an integrated control and commimi' cation system and establish traffic patterns and approach procedures for determining the times, places and methods of transporting oil-It would include a monitoring and inspections system, a data bank to provide technical and scientific information and joint plans of action to oil spills. A lask force of govern ment representatives will be appointed and lira lei-eial governments of both countries encouraged lo participate. Discussions leading lo the memorandum stemmed from an oil spili at the Atlantic Richfield Co. oil relincry aL Cherry Point, Wash., June 4 which fouled beaches in southern B.C. Premier Bennett said B.C.'s S24.2 million disaster fund will be used to finance the B.C. share of costs involved in the program. Mr. Bennett said he doesn't expect many civil service jobs will have lo be created for the program because existing pollution control staff and equipment will be used. The disaster fund was established In 1969 out of revenue surplus funds. Both Mr. Bennett and dismissed the claim by Environment Minister Jack Davis that the agreement was of lil tic use bcKiiisc such agree-mcnis como within, federal jurisdiction in Canada and the US. "That is partisan politics and it has no place said Mr. Bennett. "The oil doesn't lap at the national added Mr. Evans. The premier also denied a charge by B.C. Liberal leader David Anderson that signing the agreement meant accepting the idea of heavy coastal traffic of tankers carrying Alaska oil. Mr. Bennett said the B.C. legislature made clear to the tanker traf fie. "Our opinion lias not he suid. "Rut we arc in a position of a person wilh a home: You do everything you can to make sure it's safe, and, if something happens, you take insurance, and if a fire starts, you have firefighters there lo help." At a brief news conference, Mr. Bennett and Mr. Evans said private enterprise would pay for oil cleanups. Gov. Evans said Washingon would introduce a per-barrel surcharge on all oil entering the state to provide spill-fighting funds- Mr. Bennett said B.C. has no intention of introducing such a surcharge. B.C.'s share of spill fighting costs would come from the disaster fund, but added that industry would have to meet some expenses on an unspecified basis. After the ceremony, Mr. Bennett and Mr. Evans met for haH an hour in what was termed by Mr. Evans' aides as the first business meeting in history between a Washington governor and premier of B.C. Mr. Evans said later that at Mr. Bennett's request, the International task force will be enabled to expand its areas other than oil spills. No other areas were specified, but in his remarks. Mr. Evans suggested B.C. might be able to participate In a Pacific Northwest Regional Commission now being developed- This commission, involves J'dalio and Oregon. Both the premier and the governor made clear they were not entering Inlo a formal inter-nalional agreement, explaining that only their federal governments could do this. "Due to Ihc division of responsibility H formal legal agreement cannot be made Mr. Bennett said. "But the action we are able to take is truly significant and historic." The governor added that, whether agreements arc formal treaties or only signs of cooperation, they are "only as good as the willingness of the parties concerned to fully live up to them." He predicted that B.C. would completely live up to tho memorandum signed Monday. During Ihe ceremonies, plain-clothes RCMP members were busy with videotape and other photographic equipment, for tlicir files the faces of the crowd witnessing tha ceremony. An RCMP spokesman Bald the photography operation Is standard for such public gatherings "these days."
