30 THE lETHBRiSGE HEKALD Wednesday, July 19, 1972 Pipeline foes not giving up WASHINGTON (AP) Envi- ronmentalists, trying again to block the planned Alaska oil dvipclinc, argued here t li a t the interior department's recent approval of it was "arbitrary and capricious." Environment groups, which had successfully stalled the pipeline's construction for more than two years with a court in- junction, filed a brief with the same federal court in support of their request for a new injunc- tion. They propose It would enjoin j the department from issuin, permits for the pipeline until proposal to build an altemativ pipeline through Canada is fur ther studied. They argued that Interior Sec relary Rogers Morton has no yet complied with the require ments of the National Environ Tariffs BRUSSELS (Renter) Agreements which will turn vir tually all of Western Europe into a free trade zone were completed Monday. Four members of the Euro- pean Free Trade Association- Switzerland, Sweden, Finland and seven months of tough bargaining on trade links with (he Common Market, which last Thursday completed similar talks with Iceland, another EFTA mem- ber. All the EFTA members need the agreement with the market to compensate for the departure of Britain, Norway and Den- mark from EFTA to join the Common Market Jan. 1. A settlement between tho Common Market and Portugal, also an EFTA member, is blocked at the moment because of a dispute over tho price o! tomato paste. But negotiations are expected to be completed Shortly. When the tariff-dismantling is completed with the enlarged community, 16 European coun- tries will be exchanging their goods on a free trade basis. The only exception in Western Eu- rope will be Spain. The agreements, due to be signed in Brussels July 25, dif- fer from country to country but the general line is the Fame free trade for industrial goods within five years. The reason for the length of the talks has been that certain items have been labelled "sensi- tive" and in need of special pro- tection measures. Each country has different priorities. For instance Finland is heavily reliant on paper ex- ports and Iceland is almost wholly dependent on fish and fish products. Name registrar OTTAWA (CP) Francois des Rivieres, deputy registrar of the Supreme Court of Can- ada, has been appointed regis- trar, Justice Minister Otto Lang said here. Mr. des Rivieres practised law in Quebec City before join- ing the army in 1942 and the federal public service in 1946. He replaces Kenneth J. Mathe- son, who retires Monday. J. Mills Shipley, a Calgary lawyer until 1947 and later a librarian at the labor depart- ment, University of Alberta law school and Supreme Court, be- comes deputy registrar. PO.NDEK1NG VANCOUVER (CP) While the damaged Greenpeace III nuclear prote.st yacht sails homeward from the South Pa- cific, the Greenpeace Founda- tion is pondering what action it might lake afiinst the French government on ''the matter nf rights and compensation" for an alleged ramming hy a French warship mental Policy Art with an ade- quate statement of the project's J environmental impact as com- pared with reasonable alterna- tives. They asked district Judge George L Hart Jr. to enjoin the department from issuing the permits until Morton lias ade- quately studied the alternative pipeline route through Canada in conjunction vain a planned natural gas pipeline; has studied the merits of deferring any decision; and lias complied with the impact statement law. MUST MEET DEADLINE The department has until July 31 to file ils own brief against the renewed attack. The proposed pipeline lias been one of the hottest battle- grounds o n the environmental front since the oil companies, now collaborating in the Alyesfca Pipeline Service Co., first applied for applications in 1S69. They planned an 800-mile pipeline, four feet in diameter, to carry hot oil from Alaska's Arctic seacoast to an ice-free tanker port for ocean shipment to U.S. West-Coast ports. In Monday's legal brief, the conservationists argue that ad- vantages of a trans-Alaska pipe- line would be outweighed by those of a combined oil ant gas route through Canada, which would avoid Alaska's severe earthquake hazards and the threat of ocean pollution from associated (anker traffic. Canadian officials, mean- while, have said they would be ready by the end of this year to receive applications for the nat ural-gas pipeline. U.S. demand will dictate gas route QUEBEC (CP) The route or a proposed pipeline to bring natural gas from the Arctic to outhern Canada will be deter- mined mainly by demands from United States markets, says illes Masse, Quebec natural -esources minister. Mr. Masse said that if Pan- arctic Oils Ltd., which is devel- oping recently-discovered gas upplies in the Arctic, decides o supply the Boston area first, rte line would probably go hrough Quebec to Montreal. But if Chicago and the mid- vestem region of Ihs U.S. is to served first, the line would irobably go through Ontario. Panarctic is a member of a onsortium planning a pipeline rom the Mackenzie Delta to the outli. Another possible route or Arctic islands gas is a pipe- ne running southwest to link p with Delta-Alberta line. Pan- arctic is owned 45 per cent by he federal government and 55 er cent by 12 private firms. Mr. Masse said in an mter- iew that if the pipeline follows le Ontario route, it could also upply a proposed giant petro- hemical development at Sar- da, Ont. Mr. Masse along with Guy aint-Pierre, Quebec minister of industry and commerce, is to icet here in Montreal with ean-Luc Pepin, federal miais- T of industry, trade and com- merce, to discuss the future of le province's petrochemical in- ustry. Mr. Saint-Pierre recently crit- cized the Sarnia development, coupled with the Ottawa liver demarcation line for the ale of domestic oil products ould, he said, spell the end of luebec.
