Mr. Stromstedt, speaking af- ter the annual meeting of the Lethbridge chapter of the AWA, said the government was "be- coming desperate for rieney." He suggested the government was not really interested in maintaining wilderness areas. 'The government's principal is to create a park and then not use it as a park." Premier Harry Strom in late May announced the Can a d a Montana Gas Co. would be al- lowed to drill in acres of the acre park for which the company has explorat o r y rights. Mr. Stromstedt, a Calgary en- gineering technologist, said the government was interested in a park area "only after it was no good for anything else, after all the money value had been milked out of it." He said reaction by AWA members to Mr. Strom's an- nouncement had ranged from "extreme disappointment to vio- lent outrage." Meanwhile the Lethbridge chapter's proposed talks on Bill 106 did not occur Monday be- cause copies of the proposed legislation were not available. The bill comprises the gov- ernment's latest proposals on the regulation and use of park I areas. I Joan Puckett, secretary of the local chapter, said requests for copies had been sent to Edmon- ton about a month ago, and so far no replies had been re- ceived.

Interest rates would increase and capital would be in short supply. "Canada will be unable :o compete in world trade and our standard of living will be reduced." William Scllhorn, general manager of Dominion Glass Co. Ltd. in Kedcliff, said the while paper could "be a disas- tcr for industry, business and agriculture."
