Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Band funds probe postponed SADDLE LAKE (CP) A federal government investiga- tion into the spending of about million of Slavy Indian Band funds hns been postponed, Chief Hany Chonkolay says, The chief said the band coun- cil had beei advised the inves- tigation probably would be ear- ly in August rather than in mid-July as originally sched- uled. He saJd the council had call- ed on Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien to proceed with the Investigation as originally scheduled. The postponement was an ob- vious indication of an indefinite postponement, Cliief Chonkolay said, adding that Jolin Ciaccia, the assistant deputy minister, should proceed with the study immediately. Last month Mr. Chretien an- nounced the investigation after learning there was million in the band fund in 1967 but when checked by the department in 1970 most of it was gone. The investigation was to find out what projects Uie money was spent on and how wisely it was spent Wtdneidoy, Julg 12, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGB HERALD 9 Social Credit dream of 1960's now Tory nightmare EDMONTON (CF> A So- cial Credit dream of the 1960s has become a Progressive Con- servative nightmare. The Alberta Resources Rail- way was envisaged as a line that would open up great re- source development of the northwest. Instead It has de- veloped Into a money drain that no one seems to want. Conceived by the Social Credit government in it was completed in 1969 and so far the government-owned line has shown nothing but losses- To add to the woes, floods late last month washed out 37 miles of the line, causing dam- age that could run as high as million. The question now Is: who pays for the damage, the gov- ernment or Canadian National Railways, which built and op- erates the line? 'GREAT BIG MESS' Provincial Treasurer Gordon Miniely said Tuesday the rail- way is "just a great big mess." On the question of who pays he said "it is very unsure." CN which has an option to buy the lines says it won't comment until damage assess- ments are in. CN operates the line under a 20-year lease Agreement which stipulates that capital costs are the responsibility of the prov- ince, while the operating ex- penditures are paid by CN. But the agreement refers to tho national railway system of accounts classification to deter- mine what operating costs are and what capital costs are. "And this Is a very unsure area of said Mr. Miniely. When the Conservatives un- seated tho Social Credit party as government of Alberta last year it started examining the ARR. It was noticed the gov- ernment had been receiving bills from CN for Items that "looked normally as if they were o p e r a t ing expenditures and the responsibility of CN." A basic problem in the CN- government lease agreements is that they "have so many open ends." "Under any normal situation if it was contracted by CN to build a railroad to a certain kind of specification and say engineering difficulties resulted in a washout, the immediate reaction Is that it would he the responsibility of said the provincial treasurer. "But you go through that agreement and really it is so foggy it is difficult to deter- mine." The line started as a route from Solomon to tha coal fields of Grande Cache at an esti- mated cost of million. Then the estimates jumped to million and then to million as the decision was made to push it north to Grande Prairis- The final cost turned out to be million. With debt charges, the gov- ernment now has poured in more than million with lit- tle optimism that revenues will increase substantially. Radioactive dump effects scanned SEATTLE (AP) Scientists from 15 nations have convened here to exchange information on the effects of dumping radio- active wastes in the oceans. The week-long symposium Is described by participants as the first step toward Betting in- ternational standards for ocean dumping of such wastes. The potential for radioactive damage to the world's marine ecosystems is real and growing with the expansion of the nu- clear power industry, Dr. Yas ushi Nishiwaki said as the sym- posium opened. Nishiwaki Is a health physicist and deputy dir- ector of tho division of nuclear safety and environmental pro- tection of the sponsoring Inter- national Atomic Energy Agen- cy. AD estimated 150 marine scientists will pool information gathered in studies of the sea's capacity to accept radioactive waste without damage to man or the ocean environment, he said. Among sludies to be present- ed Is one made for nearly 30 umbia River along the Hanford atomic reservation near Rich- Wash. "The addition of radipmi- clides into the Columbia River by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission's Hanford site has provided an uneuqled study op- said Dr. Allen H. Seymour of the University of Washinton. He has been study- ing the effects of radiation on fish in the Columbia since 1M3. The study so far shows no evident changes in marine or- ganisms, even from periods years of waters in the Col- when all eight Hanford reactors were in operation, he said. The genetic effects of waste dumping from Hanford are less clear, Seymour said, but researchers have found observ- able genetic damage ot marine life. MANY TRIBUTARIES The Amazon River has about 200 major tributaries, 17 of them more than miles long. Mr. Miniely said annual debt charges are million and the time may have come for the province to examine how much extra public money should be spent for maintenance. One possibility aot sug- gested by Mr. Miniely is to close down the northern half of the line between Grande Cache and Grande Prairie. While this wouldn't solve the debt-pay- ment situation it would elimin- ate future cost of repair there. THREE. CHOICES What the washoufs have done Is crystalized the need for the government to examine three choices for the future operation of the 234-mile line. get it Into the hands of CN. Determine the cost of re- pairs and who should pay. Assuming CN would not take over the line, decide what it should do with it. A report by consultants In February said It is unlikely CN will exerdse its option to buy ARR unless there ia an Im- provement in operating ex- penses. In 1971, rentals from tonnage hauled over the Una paid for about of tha Interest charges. A clause In the ARRN-CN lease allows for termination of the agreement if deficits occur in three consecutive of the first five years of tha op- eration. A loss this year would be tha third in a row.
