Brian Faulkner, moderate former premier wto bat seen hia Unionist party pulled apart fay activist Protestant factions, argues that "there can be no double-talk about 'their ex- tremists' and 'our extremists' with an indulgence for one's own 'side'." And in the neighboring Irish republic, the Dublin newspaper Irish Independent says that if the either side- got control of Ireland the coun- try would be "a grim Fascist state born of violence and intol- erance, barren of neighborliness or moderation." But with the IRA showing no inclination to mitigate its vio- lent campaign on the eve of the elections, moderates were in- creasingly concerned over re- ports that the Protestant Ulster Canada may stop with 1975 auto emission standards By JEFF CARRUTHERS OTTAWA With the energy shortage high in the sights of many motoring Canadians these days, the new position of Envi- ronment Minister Jack Davis on automobile emission controls is both interesting and timely. Thursday, in an exclusive in- terview, Mr. Davis revealed that he now believes Canada should not go all the way with the United States and imple- ment the sringent automobile air emission controls planned for 1976. Rather, Canada should "pio- neer" with the US. only until the 1975 standard and then break with the present "lock- Carpet Dirty? PHONE 328-2853 mr.steam Carpet Cleaning Ltd. step with the Americans" policy by not going any further, for the time being. The costs in terms of increased gasoline con- sumption and maintenance of the automobiles would be too high, he suggested. The change in heart about how far Canada should go in cleaning up automobile air pol- lution is both dramatic and im- portant. It is dramatic in the sense that only two months ago, when the U S. anoitnced it was post- poning its original stringent auto emission standards from 1975 to 1976 and instead substi- tuting softer requirements for everywhere but California for 1975, Mr. Davis said publicly that Canada would follow the U.S. in "lock-step" in 1975 and 1976. He argued at the time, when the auto pact was very topical, that Canada could not afford to break with the US., since both countries were locked into a continental automobile set-up. Now, with the gasoline short- at least the spectre- leading to new Canadian con- trols on the export of gasoline, the concern and rationale has suddenly shifted from the auto pact to energy conservation. It is important in several re- gards. To the consumer, it could mean a saving of about a car for those who can afford to buy 1976 models. Environment HAIR-FLAIR Beauty Salon 503 7th St. S.

ELLIOTT Chairman The Alberta Liquor Control Beard NOTE: Petitions requesting a plebiscite vote must be on ths official petition forms which may be obtained from The Alberta Liquor Control Board, 12360 142 Street, Edmonton, T5J 2R4, together with instructions for the submission of a petition. department air pollution ex perts caution, though, that some models may have their cataly- tic converers and other nor- mally "add-on" anti-pollution devices built into the motor. In such cases, the Canadian own- ers would pay the cost, whether the law here was as stringent or not. It also should be noted that Canadian cars will bear at least half the cost of any more stri- ngent controls for American cars, since the automobile in- dustry will spread the costs over plants in both countries. It is more important, espe- cially if it is accepted by Ot- tawa, to the automobile manu- facturers and oil refinery com- panies. The weaker Canadian position will likely weaken the U.S. En- vironmental Protection Agencys tough approach, Mr. Davis admitted. This in turn could sabotage the planed tougher controls for 1976 cars in the United States. Mr. Davis admitted Thursday that he has had a significant change of heart in the last two months He pinpoints the turning point for him as the time when the U S. air pollution experts admit- ted they had made a serious er- ror in measuring the air pollu- tion problem involving nitrous oxides from cars. The U.S. has since announced it will drop its original plans to require a sig- nificant reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions from cars in 1977. "This bothered Mr. Davis said. It undermined his confidence in the U.S. argument all along that the stringent con- trols were desperately needed for purely environmental rea- sons. Canadian ownership strengthens WINNIPEG (CP) The Mer- cantile Bank of Canada will be 62 per cent Canadian-owned when the third issuance of shares is completed Monday, says bank vice-president John E. Cleghorn. First National City Bank in the United States now is 48 per cent owner. Its share will de- crease to 38 per cent with the issue, which will raise the bank's assets to million from million. Defence Association whicli has generally confined it- self to threats, also was becom- ing more militant. There were rumors that con- trol had fallen into the hands of bank in 1971 announced a 10-year program to ensure at least 75 per cent Canadian ownership by the end of the decade. At the tune of the an- nouncement, the bank was wholly owned by First National City Bank.

Although there were denials and the precise situation re- mains unclear, young members did threaten to carry the vio- lence over the border to the Irish republic, Introducing dis- eased animals to destroy the re- public's vital dairy industry and bombing industrial sites. Whatever the seriousness of such threats, It seems to most observers certain that Ulster voters would not enjoy the lux- ury of an assembly election free from threat and violence. And if British security forces are exposed to fire from both the IRA and the UDA it wlfl add strength to a so-far falter- ing campaign in Britain to puD the troops out of Northern Ira- land altogether.
