Later, Mr. Woolliams stressed that the pipeline would either cost billion or billion to construct, depending on which route was used. He wanted to whether Canada could raise that type of money.

Another Alberta MF, Stan Schumacher Palliser) also questioned Mr. Macdonald on energy matters. Mr. Schumacher said Mr. Macdonald had recently sug- gested the National Energy Board should reconsider the ac- tual quantity of natural gas re- serves in Canada, particularly in view of recent discoveries in the Arctic. The Alberta MP wanted to know if the board had been offi- cially asked to reconsider the position. Mr. Schumacher mentioned the board's rejection of a pro- posal to sell 2.7 trillion cubic feet of natural gas to the United States. The sale, which could have meant about billion, was banned by the board in November. The energy minister said he had not officially asked the board to reconsider. He pointed out that Arctic re- serves could only be taken into consideration if they were ac- cessible to the market. Until a pipeline is or. the boards they are not. Suk.

(CP Wirephoto) Tt is immoral' VERNON, B.C. (CP) Some government policy-makers are supporting immoral and "un- Canadian" economic policies .hat would keep thousands of. people unemployed, Conserva- ive Leader Robert Stanfield charged Friday. He said the Liberal govern- ment's policy in 1969 and 1970 was to cure inflation by allow- ng more unemployment and :he government might still have that policy. "Certainly there are stilt pol- icy makers today who will de- fend the thesis that a high rate of employment is somehow in- evitably linked with a high rate of inflation. To pursue policies based on such a position would be to con- demn permanently thousands of Canadians to second-class citizenship in their own coun try. I refuse to accept any such policy. It is immoral. It is un- necessary. It is un-Canadian.r The Conservative leader did not name the policy-makers who allegedly hold such views. He was speaking to the Ver- non Chamber of Commerce. CITES TWO REASONS Mr. Stanfield said there are economic as well as moral rea- sons for rejecting the theory that high employment brings inflation. "The pattern of lower pro- duction and higher taxes that characterize high unemploy- ment is surely in itself a fac- tor in raising costs." He would rather use tempor- ary wage and price controls "than to use a discredited, in humane and ineffective weap- in such as unemployment." If he were elected prime minister, he would use tax cuts o stimulate economic activity and create jobs. Mr. Stanfield said his pro- posal to let taxpayers deduct :he effect of inflation from :heir taxable income would show that the federal govern- nent is sincere in combatting Inflation. Also, "Canadians should not automatically pay a larger share of their real income in 'edcral income taxes if they do 10 better than keep even with :he increases in the cost of liv- ing."
