Interviewed on the CBC tele- vision program, Encounter, ha said the problem ot equity own- ership will rise to prominence during the next year as applica- tions for construction of the pro- posed Mackenzie Valley pipeline are heard by the national ergy board. It was not 'altogether clear" that there were large enough gas in the Mackenzie delta to justify pipeline con. struction but confirmation, one way or another, would "un- doubtedly" come within a year. Mr. Macdonald said the United States is expected to work hard for a pipeline route own the Mackenzie since there no real alternative method o moving their own Alaska gas outh. He said this inevilabilit; lowed the flaw in the U.S. de- ision to ship Alaska oil by anker rather than via a pipe- ine passing through Canad; The oil is to he loaded into tank rs at the Alaskan port of Va' ez after being piped from th northern oil fields. The U.S. listed national seci rity as one of the necessitie considered in opting for an all American system. SECURITY A PUZZLE Mr. Macdonald said he wa DUzzled that "they felt they ha o have exclusive use of the o pipeline and also that it had across American territory. "In fact, undoubtedly th will be coming to Canada with Ihe next several years to sec participation in the gas pipelin and so it seems that there is flaw in their logic." Canada would reject any U.S. rnand for control, said the cur inister, and continue to insist at the line operate as a corn- on carrier. "My hope certainly is, as with Waffle wing remains TORONTO (CP) New Dem- ocratic Party members from 15 Metropolitan Toronto ridings voted Sunday against a recom- mendation of the party's provin- cial executive to expel the Waf- fle wing. However, provincial party president Gordon Vichert of Hamilton said that while the vote is an expression of opinion that must be taken seriously, ho doesn't believe it accurately re- flects the province-wide feeling. He told the meeting of about 300 members that the executive recommendation is not a purge, merely an effort to eliminate a .eiiitu {aruttuic.

Water was reportct up to six feet deep in parts of Omak and Okanagan, Wash.

SENATOR MAKES ATTACK One of the strongest attacks on the media came Saturday night when Senator Paul Yuzyk said he is "appalled by the power of the press." An Ottawa newspaper, he said, had dis- criminated against him because he is a Ukrainian.

When he complained to the paper, which lie refused to name, he was told the news- paper would never publish any- thing on multi-eulturalism.
