Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 38-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Wednwday, June on export of U.S. coal sought Sale of grain companies receives cabinet approval WASHINGTON (CP) A group of private electric- power companies called Tuesday for restrictions on the export of United States coal. Canada is the second- largest customer for American coal, with Ontario Hydro a major consumer. In full-page advertisements in prominent newspapers and magazines, the seven companies which make up the American Electric Power System (AEPS) said the energy shortage in the U.S. "leads to but one conclusion: restrict coal exports." Exports mean tying up "engines and hopper cars and miners who could be working for an energy-short U.S.A." "Surely, if the Arabs could restrict the export of oil for which they had no critical national need, we shouldn't hesitate to restrict mined coal which America needs so badlv." The advertisement is part of a publicity campaign by AEPS on behalf of coal as a source of electrical power. Previous advertisements in the series sparked criticism from environmentalists who fear the government will relax anti-pollution standards to permit greater use of coal. IMPORTS AVOIDED A spokesman for the New York-based AEPS said he believes none of the seven companies behind the campaign uses Canadian oil or natural gas. The National Coal Association estimates that Canada imports 16 million tons of American coal a year, second only to Japan's 19 million. Total U.S. coal exports are about 53 million tons annually, nine per cent of over-all production. "What the ad neglects to mention." a coal association spokesman commented, "is that 95 per cent of the overseas exports not including Canada are of metallurgical or coking coal which is not used for energy production." At Toronto, an Ontario Hydro spokesman estimated that Ontario imports about nine million tons of American coal annually under long-term contract, though current imports are slightly lower, running about eight million tons for 1974. He said some of the American mmpanies in the anti-export campaign are members of power pools to which Ontario exports electricity. Ontario Hydro officials plan to discuss the situation with some of the American companies shortly, the spokesman said. Meanwhile there would be no further comment from the Ontario officials. OTTAWA (CP) The Can- ada Gazette says sale of four grain companies has been ap- proved under the Foreign In- vestment Review Act in the first announced cabinet decision under the act. The companies whose sale was approved to Cargill Grain Co. Ltd. of Winnipeg are Na- tional Grain Ltd. of Winnipeg, National Feeds and Livestock Ltd. of Mount Lehman, B.C., Mighty Peace Grain Ltd. of Taylor, B.C., and Bosco and Bower Ltd. of Montreal. Alderman suggests use for extra oil revenues EDMONTON (CP) Windfall oil revenues now being collected by the Alberta government should be used to provide low-interest loans to municipalities, an Edmonton alderman said Tuesday. Aid. Cec Purves said the estimated million in extra oil royalties being collected by the provincial government should be made available to cities and towns for capital projects. He said interest rates make it too expensive for municipalities to borrow on the open market to finance projects. Edmonton Economic Affairs Commissioner Tom Adams told council he has already met with provincial officials and said they are considering making loans available to municipalities. They all were owned pre- viously by National Agri-Serv- ices Ltd. of Winnipeg, a sub- sidiary of Peavey Co. of Min- neapolis. Cargill, a subsidiary of Car- gill of Minneapolis, paid million for the companies. Sale of the companies was approved by cabinet which de- cided the transaction is likely to be of significant benefit to Canada, one of the criteria set out in the act for the approval of foreign purchases of Canadian companies. The act was passed last No- vember, with proclamation coming in April.
