Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 48 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, June 12, 1974 Sykes claims Lougheed governing by 'decree9 CALGARY (CP) The Alberta government is governing by decree. Mayor Rod Sykes says. In an address to a meeting of the Alberta Branch of the Community Planning Association of Canada, the mayor took the Progressive Conser vative government to task over the Taxation Act and the proposed Planning Act. "The Planning Act is neither good nor bad in its initial impact." he told the 200 delegates gathered to discuss the document. "By the time the cities and such groups as yours are through studying the document and making recommendations, it will be a good document, providing the provincial government is willing to make TAKING AUTHORITY But the government is taking more authority upon itself, especially where municipalities are concerned, "although we are available and accountable and they're not." He outlined a plan presented by the Ontario Progressive Conservative govern ment to encourage growth outside Toronto while' limiting growth within the city. The plan has led to skyrocketing land prices, a housing shortage and people selling their homes for high rise apartment developments in which they can't afford to live, he said. "It seems it is the Conservative govern ments which preach free enterprise that are the readiest to interfere. They interfere in areas which were working before they interfered." The Alberta planning proposal shows a lack of understanding for local citizen participation and will "crush what we are trying to do." Mayor Sykes said the proposed act also tends to increase bureaucratic control in some places and make it remote to areas where the problem does exist. Legislation should be established which "will meet immediate needs and enable us to respond to them quickly in our own backyards." He suggested a technical planning service group be established. The group should be composed of professionals in the area of planning and would travel the province, working with municipal councils on a contract basis. He blamed provincial legislation for the "dog's breakfast" split mill rate system implemented in Calgary and Edmonton. "It is no accident Calgary and Edmonton have the same svstem." Petrosar project opposition voiced bRIGDEN. Ont. (CP) Six persons voiced their opposition to a proposed petrochemical plant during an Ontario Municipal Board hearing here. The hearing is into applications by Petrosar Ltd. and Union Carbide Canada Ltd. to rezone about acres of land to permit construction of industrial plants, about five miles south of Sarnia. The Ontario government sent Frank Plumb, director of industrial studies in the ministry of industry and tourism, to support the building of the plant. "I am appearing on the instructions of the Ontario government to express support of the government for the immediate establishment of the Petrosar project." Mr. Plumb said. He told the hearing that a survey tabulated in January showed 29 of 36 companies in the chemical and allied products sector were "immediately affected adversely by material shortages." WOULD CUT IMPORTS He also said that the project would reduce imports of petrochemical products "to a significant degree and will do so on a most efficient internationally competitive basis." Edgar Arundell. first citizen objector to speak at the hearing, asked for a postponement of the hearing until after the July 8 election because the project had become the subject of political debate. Therefore, he said, the decision would not be seen as a fair one by the public. Oil firms increase salaries NEW YORK (AP) Most major U.S. oil companies are dipping into their record profits to boost employee salaries. One company is giving workers a bonus of a month's pay. An Associated Press survey shows that Exxon, Mobil, Standard of California, Continental, Standard of Indiana, Shell, Atlantic Richfield, Union and Mobil are raising the pay cheques of non-union U.S. employees as well. Most of the increases by these oil companies were six- per-cent. Rawleigh Warner, Mobil chairman, said the bonuses were being given because of comapny concern that inflation was eroding the salaries of its employees. He said Mobil felt the lump-sum bonus would be more use to employees than a raise. Bail is set Frank Wyatt, a sus- pect in the kidnapping of Annette is handcuffed as he is led to a hearing on a variety of charges in Philadelphia. Wyatt was arrested in con- nection with the kidnap- ping of Mrs. Friedland, the wife of the presi- dent of the Food Fair supermarket chain. Wyatt's bail was set at 000.
