However, the federal govern- ment noted that this achieve- ment was mainly due to the 'extraordinary growth" in the :WQ provinces of British Colum- bia and Alberta and that gener- ally the West's share of manu- facturing employment is below its share of population and capi- :al investment in the combined 'our Western provinces in man- ufacturing is also below the na- tional average. The three position mineral resource development, industrial and trade development, and regional de- velopment opportunities were tabled in the House of Com- mons by Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau. Last week, Mr. Trudeau tabled two earlier posi- tion papers in the Commons, on agriculture and financial in- stitutions. In the paper on regional de- velopment opportunities, which will be a basis for discussion at :he conference July 24 to 26 in Calgary, the federal govern- ment warns that if the tendency 'or western growth to become concentrated in Alberta and British Columbia continues it will be increasingly difficult to maintain viable non-resource activity in Manitoba and Sas- catchewan. 'Relative isolation from west- ern regional markets and mar- kets in the rest of Canada will the government stressed in pointing out the lagging eco- nomic pictures in Saskatchewan and Manitoba compared to Al- berta and British Columbia. It also pointed out that a sim- lar situation exists in all four Western provinces between ru- ral areas "struggling to main- tain viable small communities" and urban centres which have >ecome focal points for people caving farming communities. 'The challenge to regional de- velopment policy in the West is o help achieve diversification m processing, manufacturing and service industries." Ottawa's position paper said that world trends in trade, the region's own evolution and the five million residents providing a developing market bass are all grounds for optimism. It said the federal regional economic expansion department plans to place more emphases on joint and co-ordinated fed- eral-provincial development ac- t i v i t demand made frequently by both Premier Ed Schreyer of Manitoba and Pre- mier Peter LougheeD of to use more flex- ible and imaginative measures in a move to give the West's economic base more self-sus- taining vigor. The paper on industrial and trade development concentrates on the wide range of programs made available by Trade and Industry Minister Alastair Gil- fespie's department. But it does point out that as part of the department's pro- grams to encourage technical innovation in industry more than 40 per cent of funding for special projects this year will go to Western Canada. And it suggests that Canada expects forthcoming multila- teral trade negotiations to lead to improved access for Western exports to the United States and other markets. "Canada will continue to press for sector free trade in such areas as wood products, pulp .and paper, copper, nickel, lead, rihc, aluminum and rochemicals." Mineral wealth key to western economic growth OTTAWA (CP) Increased development of oil, gas and metal resources is the key to economic expansion in Western Canada and it should be accom- panied by action to minimize damage to the environment, the Liberal government says. Additional jobs and greater wealth for residents of the four western provinces will result if more, mineral resources are re- fined and processed hi the re- gion instead of being shipped abroad in a raw state, added a government paper tabled in the Commons Tuesday. The background paper was one of a series prepared by the government as a basis for dis- cussion with the four provincial premiers and officials at next week's western economic oppor- tunities conference in Calgary. Tracing the West's historic, dependence on natural re- sources from fur trading and gold mining days to the present, the paper said development of minerals will continue to play a major role. "Its importance will be con- siderable in any extension of the West's industrial it said. The background paper pre- dicted expanded production of oil and gas fuels, recommended strategies to increase the min- ing of copper, lead and rinc and said "new uses and markets for sulphur from Alberta should be pursued aggressively." It cautioned (hat develop- ments of new deposits of potash and molybdenum should await firmer markets and urged a careful approach to further coal development because of "eco- nomic uncertainties and envi- ronmental dangers." The report added: "Some of these activities are areas where development could be in conflict with the pre- servation of the environment. In facing this problem there is scope for both federal and pro- vincial initiatives aimed at a reasonable balance between economic and environmental needs, including further devel- opment of technology to min- imize the damage." The government included these details of the outlook in the four provinces: British minerals will continue to lead other commodity groups, but fuels can be expected to in- crease in relative importance. Two, perhaps three, proc- essing plants for copper could be feasible direct mining employment is expected to in- crease from more than at present to a stable level of 800 by 1981, with accompanying job multiplier effects." The paper said mining and drilling industries' have a multi- plier effect of more than four new jobs in related industries for each new job directly in mining or drilling. outlook for the province is bright. The secon- dary and service industries re- lated to the fuel industries are well established and growing. The fuel sector will remain the most important element. The Athabasca oil sands are a great potential resource but need massive additional in- vestment in research and tech- nology Production of coal for tfce Japanese market should increase. Sulphur produc- tion will increase as natural gas is treated but its potential for employment growth Is limited unless new uses for sulphur are found. Total employment result- ing directly from mineral devel- opment is likely to increase from its present level of more than to somewhere be- tween and in the coming decade." outlook for a stable and strong mineral in- dustry is good. Direct mining employment, having doubled in the, 1960s, is likely to slow down over the next decade. Vir- tually all the growth will occurr in the North, particularly in the Thompson area.. Significant expansion in further processing is unlikely." potash in- dustry, now operating very much below capacity, will grad- ually increase during the next decade to use up excess capac- ity, but employment gains will probably be modest. Pro- duction of uranium will in- crease and new mines will be opened as the world market for uanium expands later in the decade."
