Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD -Gas ii OTTAWA (CP) Alberta Gas Tiiuik Line Co. will bo ready in 1973 to begin construction of a pipeline to Arclic fiiis fields, a company official said Monday. S. Robert Blair, chief executive officer for Alberta low the National Enow Board Tuesday, July 20, 197! ran ready exact liming and route of the pipeline would depend on location of gos reserves. "I believe that major new gas arteries in the Arctic will be iji large-scale operation by the latter half of the 1970s." M. Blair said the pipeline would be the joint project 1973 five companies with Alberta Gas acting as manager of the enterprise. The other companies arc: Canadian National Railways; Columbia Gas System Tnc. of Wilmington, Del.: Northern Watu-al Gas Co. of Omaha, build and Texas Eastern Transmission Corp. of Houston, Tex. POSSIBLE ROUTES Among the routes for the pipeline would be a 1, 550-mile link to Prudhoe Bay in Alaska, with an extension to the Canadian Arctic. Another pi would be a pipeline from Winnipeg north to King Christian Island in the Arctic Islands. In an interview, Mf- Blair said the Alberta-to-Alaska link would cost about million, with another million needed to expand existing pipelines southern Alberta and elsewhere. Construction on part of the route will be completed in early 1972. This involves extension of Alberta pipeline facilities to serve the northwest corner of the province, but the extension would also be the basis for a pipeline to the firemen die WASHINGTON (AP) A record 64 firemen died in the Unitd States while on active duty the first six months of this year, says the AFL-CIO International Association of Fire Fighters. The association described fire fighting as "the most hazardous occupation in our nation today" and said it is becoming more dangerous each year. Total on-duty deaths in 1969 were shift study OTTAWA (CP) S. M. Gos-sage, 65, a former vice-president of Canadian Pacific Railway is to be chairman of the government's preparatory commission for metric conversion, Industry Minister Jean-Luc Pepin announced here. The commission has been created to undertake studies of the effect on the Canadian economy of a conversion to the metric system. Government policies and programmes can create a climate for growth. But Governments can't legislate public confidence. Nor can they control the private initiative and enterprise which will finally determine how far and how fast Canada grows. That's up to individual Canadians. People. A guaranteed investment. The history of Canada was written by genera- tions of tough, self-reliant people who came here with the same determina- tion to build something worthwhile. Think of the incredible difficulties that faced the immigrants who first settled here. Read about the Canadians who literally forged this country together a hun- dred years ago, in mile after impossible mile of railroad track. And remember the challenge of Expo '67. How many people even dreamed that Canadians could put on the greatest show the world has ever seen? People like that are still the most important resource we have. Un- employment is a waste of. that resource a waste that affects every one of us, at every income level. If we can find enough confidence in ourselves to grow the jobs we need, we'll all be better off for it. As a nation, we'll be producing more and selling more. As individuals, we'll be earning more and buying more. Something else. When we give people a chance to build a chance to fulfill themselves also give them pride and a sense of achievement. And those are gifls too valuable to be measured in dollars and cen Is. What are our chances? Most economists agree that Canada is beginning a new period of growth. In the past year, we've contained inflation more successfully than any other country with a free economy. Things are moving. Companies are expand- ing. Opportunities are opening up. But we can still do much better. How much better depends on all of us; on how much we want to succeed. We have the people. We have the skills. Now we'll find oul if we also have what it lakes lo make use of them. What Canada Manpower Centres can do. Canada Manpower is the operating arm of the Department of Manpower and Immigration, re- sponsible for the devel- opment and utilization of our human resources. In other words, their business is matching people with job oppor- tunities. Last year, for example, they helped more than Canadians find work. There are 390 Canada Manpower Centres across the country, all linked by Telex so that they work together as one cohesive force. They can arrange the training and retraining of workers and help them relocate in opportunity areas. They also have access to the researchers, the economists and the statisticians needed by business and industry to take full advantage of existing opportunities and to create new ones. Canada Manpower Cenlres are there to help every way they can. What Canadian businessmen can do. Our economy depends on the enterprise and energy of the private sector to create new wealth and employment. There has rarely been a better time [or a more urgent need) to translate that fact into meaningful action. Now at the beginning of an economic up-turn. Now when thousands of skilled people are ready and anxious to go to work. Now when there are Government programmes available to help with all kinds of business expansion plans. Canada's economic future is very much in your hands. The real stimulus for growth must come from your initiative and your con- fidence in the future of this country. What Canadian workers can do. If you think Canada Manpower Centres are just for unemployed people, you're wrong. A Canada Manpower Centre is also the place to go if you're under- employed. If you're in- terested in learning a new trade or up-grading your present skills counsellors there can tell you all about Govern- ment sponsored re- training programmes. (In these days of constant technological change, they can make all the difference in the world to your And if you want to find out about employment opportunities in other parts of the Canada Manpower is the place to get ansivers. If you fit any of these categories, and haven't already registered with a Canada Manpower Centre, then do so now. What the Canadian people can do. Start by examining your own attitudes in the bright light of Canada's current economic prospects. Right now, personal savings are at a ten-year high. Which simply means that people have been careful about spending people always are when times are difficult. There's much less reasoa for that caution today. What's needed now is the kind of confidence that will persuade people to make those expen- ditures they've been post poning. Because when people start spending, manufacturers will bn encouraged to expand into new markets and new product areas. That's what keeps the economy moving. And that's what grows jobs. Have we got what it takes to grow the Jobs we need? Manpower Main-d'oeuvre and Immigration et Immigration Olio Lang, Minister Otlo Lang, ministro ;
