Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 23, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Changing scene in Canada's North YELLOWKNIFK, N .W .T. (CP) The North is a land o! majestic desolation and isolated grandeur which, unlil now, few Canadians have seen. That's changing, thanks to In- creased publicity, and a recent announcement by Prime Minis- ter Trudeau of a highway from Fort Simpson (a Ihe Arctic Coast. The 038-mile liighway is ex- peeled to attract tourists in then- thousands are ex- pected to have an effect on the environment. Before the graders and bull- dozers move in, however, the contractors will be brought to- gether with petroleum pipeline personnel who have been study- ing the region's delicate envi- ronment for several years. Richard HilJ, director of Otta- wa's research station at Inuvik, a community on the Mackenzie River Delta near the Arctic Coast, thinks alternatives to the highway should be examined. "Maybe we should stand back and have a study of total devel- opment and then choose what mix of communications and transportation are said Mr. Hill, a former mayor of the town. "This is the jet age; it could well be argued lhat it would be belter to build 100 miles of air- strips than a 60-mile highway." DEVELOPMENT FAVORED He also recommends improv- ing tlie barge transportation system by which communities on the Mackenzie and on the coast now receive most of their supplies. Mr. Hill emphasizes that he's not against the highway; he't Just like to see all angles of ap- proach lo the northern transpor- ation problem. A; Ballantyne, director of de- velopment for the Northwest Territories, says most natives in he North favor development. "I'm a bit cynical about do- ;oodcrs down he says. "What they are saying is thai t they were Eskimos, they wouldn't like development be- ause they don't like what they are getting in the asphalt gles of the South. "But that's not generally the way that the Indian or the Es- kimo or Metis thinks. You talk lo just about any native and they don't want develop- ment stopped." Mr. Ballanlyne says Ihere are still people in Ihe Norlh who can remember their relalives starving to death and there no desire to go back to the ok ways. As one Eskimo hunter put ii: "I've tried starving and I've tried eating and I like eating. have lived in an igloo and now live in a comfortable oil-heate: house.
