Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, lam 25, 1970 EDMONTON (CP1 A re- port by 13 scientists says a British Columbia Dam may cause an ecological and eco- nomic disaster in a square-mile delta in Alberta but the B.C. government says low snowfall is to blame. The report was released "Wednesday and prompted an investigation by Alberta, B.C. and federal government offi- cials into the detrimental ef- fects of low water in the Peace and Athabasca Rivers delta, SCO miles north of Edmonton. The report said the W. A. C. Bennett Dam prevents waters of the Peace River from rising high enough to replenish the delta. GHAVK CONCERN Because of the low water, it continued, there is reason for "grave concern" for the delta's natural resources and for the S, Korean Visitor Likes The West OT1AWA (CP) Cho Ki Dong bifin't seen much of Can- ada yet, but already he knows what he Prairies.

Mr. Cho is the director of the sile externally-financed social agency in South Korea that is staffed only by Koreans, out of 114 agencies in the country. When he flew over the Prai- ries, he said, he couldn't help but think the best thing he could do is bring some of his tiny country's people t the Canadian West, where ther is lots of room and lots to eat.

Cree, Chipewyan and Metis inhabitants dependant on (lie area's resources. "Apparently no one has con- sidered the loss in human values that the Bennett Dam has caused, only the economic benefits to British Columbia have been considered." Ray Williston, B.C. lands and forests minister, said Wed- nesday in Victoria that low snowfall, not the Bennett Dam, is the main factor causing the low water level. "This year ail our rivers are in a particularly low situation because of lack of snow even still, there is more water going down (the Peace) than two or three years ago." The delta, compri s e d of lakes, marshes and sedge mea- dows in northeastern Alberta, depends on annual spring floods to replenish the waters. SPELLS DISASTER "Failure of the floods plays havoc: muskrats won't breed, meadows will not be watered, ducklings and goslings will die, fish spawning grounds will disappear. "For the local population this spells disaster." The scientists, headed by W. M. Schultz, chairman of the water resources centre at the University of said the evels could be raised by tem- >orary partial obstruction of the outflow channels from Lake Athabasca to the Peace River.

Tax Reform Approval To Hurt Alberta St. Jean Baptiste Parade Most Orderly In 3 Years EDMONTON (CP) Provin- cial Treasurer Anders Aalborg said Wednesday implementa- tion of Ottawa's white paper on ,ax reform, without revision, could mean a loss of up to in investment in Al- berta within the next decade. Mr. Aalborg also said the loss of natural resource reve- lue over the same period could be as much as He told the Edmonton Cham- >er of Commerce Alberta can- not accept the concept of the :paital gains tax proposed in he white paper, nor can it go along with ihe failure of dif- erentiating between closely leld and widely held corpora- "ons. He urged Ottawa to release he major portion of the in- tax field to the provin- ial government. Mr. Aalborg said he Is con- :dent the desired changes in ie white paper will be insti- uted, because of statements of Minister Edgar Ben- on, and that the changes negate legislation which would seriously hamper the rowth of Canada. They stood on rooftops, sat on balconies and lounged in folding chairs on sidewalks, waving fleur-de-lys flags and balloons and buying soft drinks and po- tato chips from roving vendors. There were few Canadian flags showing although one large group of people planted four on their balcony. A little old lady above them hung out an old Red Ensign without the Canadian crest that used to identify it as Canada's banner. The parade was followed by a blue panel truck belonging to Reggie Charlrand's militant Chevaliers de Knights of Independence painted with slogans "Vive le Quebec libre" saying (Long Live -Free "Quebec, Motre Seule Patrie" (Quebec Our Only and "Quebec aux Quebecois" (Quebec for Police estimated and persons, mostly young, toined behind and this swelled :o or stretched over about 15 blocks as the parade neared Old Montreal. CANSO, N.S. (CP) Sympa- thy walkouts SUL Nova Scotia fisl to the Cape Breton coal" field today, with miners refus- ing to work in two of the area' biggest mines. The walkouts at No. 26 colli cry in Glace Bay and No. 12 col liery in New Waterford brough the number of Nova Scotia trade unionists off the job in support of the fishermen tt about Two other major Cape Breton mines continued to hoist coal. About construction men working on major industrial de- velopments stayed off the job for tire third straight day in the Port Hawkesbury area of the Strait of Canso about 80 miles from this small fishing port. Elsewhere in the province, workers went off the job on con- struction projects at Glace Bay, New Waterford and Sydney, in Cape Breton, and at Halifax- Some of the walkouts were new, otters ware continued from Wednesday. The wildcat strike by con- struction men at the Strait of Canso which began Tuesday has continued despite an appeal from the president of the United Fishermen and Allied Workers Union to return to their jobs. Homer Stevens appealed Wednesday night to trade un- ions members in construction trades, pulp mills and a heavy water plant "to recom- mendations of their officers and return to work. About workmen tied up some worth of new construction in Hie area when they left their jobs in sympathy with the striking trawler crews. Several hundred construction workers on new projects in Syd- ney, New Waterford, Canso a'nd Halifax joined them Wednesday. Some 250 fishermen have been on strike since late March, demanding company recognition of the United Fishermen union as their bargaining agent. The trawler crews are on strike against Acadia Fisheries Ltd., which owns plants here and at Mulgrave, on the mainland, and the Petit de Grat plant of Booth Fisheries Cana- dian Ltd., on the Cape Breton side of Chcdabucto Bay. Acadia said in a statement Wednesday it is not anti-union and has felt for some time that trawler crewmen should be or- ganized llirough a member of the Canadian Labor Congress. Teachers Vote Favors Strike Action Teachers in the South Willow Creek School Division Have voted 86 per cent in favor of a strike unless demands for In- creased wages are met. A spokesman for the Alberta Teachers Association said Wed- nesday in Nanton there was little chance of a settlement during the summer and the 175 teachers would probably begin a strike in September. The teachers, who worked during the last year without a contract, were asking for a 6.7- >er-eent wage increase which would give a teacher with four years trailing and 10 years ex- jerience annually. Working conditions and ad- ministrative allowances, which are paid to principals, vice- principals and their assistants, vere also in dispute. 11th Candidate For Socreds RED DEER (CP) Pulton lollings, a 43-yeaixild Red )eer businessman, was chosen y acclamation to represent ie new urban riding of Red Deer for the Social Credit 3arty in the next provincial lection.'
