Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Fanner wins bid for tiny island By IAN DONALDSON HALIFAX (CP) A dairy farmer from Maine and a pro- vincial government land buyer bid against each oilier lor a tiny Nova Scotia island last week and the dairy farmer won. The island, with annual taxes ot was one of nine shore- front properties auctioned at a tax sale, with six of them going to buyers from the United States and one to a Toronto real estate firm. The sale represented a mic- robe of a trend that brought comments of concern this week from two Maritime premiers, with one of them promising a policy statement by the end of the year on the question of non- resident land buying. Premier Alex Campbell of Prince Edward Island, where six per ccnl of the province's 1.4 million acres belong lo non- residents, says he fears Iho [rend may point lo "a subtle reversion to Ihe absentee land- lord siluation of a century ago." Premier Gerald Regan of Nova Scotia, where shorefront properties are fetching higher prices every year, says his gov- ernment is "a litlle perturbed" at Ihe trend and he plans a policy statement by the end of 1972 outlining measures to con- trol non-resident land owner- ship. While both provinces are con- cerned about losing prime rec- reational land, Premier Camp- bell says there is an added worry in P.E.I. Land specula- TEA TIME TREATS.

At the tax sale tlu's week; the Nova Scotia lands and forests department declined to match bids from American buyers for island acreages in Guysborough County, and Atlantic coastal area in eastern Nova Scotia. The department had said it was in- terested ii the islands for ecol- ogical reasons. Dairy farmer Rex Varnum of Maine paid up to for islands and shore property on the mainland, willt tax arrears of a few hundred dol- lars on each. Mr. Varnum, who said ho owns about a dozen Nova Sco- tia properties and intends to keep the best for his family while selling oft the others, said he would "co-operate" with the provincial government in making one Island with his- torical fortifications into a park if Ihe government was still in- terested. Americans spent for seven properties in Guysbor- jugh County, six of them with vater frontage. At the same sale, Nova Scotia buyers bought I properties lor Two had shore frontage. Mr. Regan ordered a "partic- ular examinalion" into what tappens to the properties >ought at this week's lax sale where Ihe dominance of non-res- dent purchases of shore prop- erties was "very disturbing." The Nova Scotia premier said .here was evidence that non-res- .dents were btrying desirable waterfront properties with "re- sale in mind." Mr. Campbell said that present trends indicated Ihe jme may come when most of the land on P.E.I., 66 per cent of which is cultivated compared to a Canadian average of seven per cent, will be owned by non- In the last 18 months, non-res- idents have been buying up P.E.I, land at the rate of nearly 700 acres a month and now own acres.

Monday, Juno 5, 1972 THl IETK3RIDSI HERAID J3 More than awards, reviews needed to be box office hit TORONTO (CP) Clarke Mackcy has learned that more lhan awards and good reviews arc needed to make a Canadian movie a box-office success. His feature film, The Only Thing You Know, won two 1971 Canadian Film Awards and crit- ics have been generous in their praise of almost every aspect of the film. "Yel, since I finished the film in Feburuary of last year, I've I been to pretty well every dis- tributor in Canada and a num- ber in the States, and they won't touch he said. "The general altitude was that it was good, but they didn't tliink it would sell. The feeling is that Canadian (ilms in gen- eral are not very good at the box office." One chain of about 50 theatres throughout Onlario gave it a midnight showing one night last November in Toronto agreed to book it for one week in the same theatre later on. It opened Friday night and fewer than two dozen people at- tended the first show. No one was wailing to get into the sec- ond. A spokesman for Ihe theatre said, however, the show would be given the full week's run, and that he anticipated a great- er attendance. Ann Knox of Guelph, OnL, who plays the lead role of a high-school girl leaving home to search for something important in life, was picked by an inter- national jury as the best actress in a Canadian movie made In 1971.

June will be long month for MPs By STEWART MacLEOD OTTAWA (CP) It's going to be a long month of June for MPs, many of whom had banked on an early federal elec- tion and now find themselves tied to the Commons for long, and often non-legislative, de- bates.
