Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, June LETHBRIDQE HERALD-23 Gas firm export permit receives cabinet okay EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta cabinet has approved a permit to Pan-Alberta Gas Ltd. for the removal from the province of a maximum of 975 billion cubic feet of natural gas during a six-year period beginning Nov. 1. The government announced Wednesday that the permit will carry two conditions: that Pan-Alberta do all it can to ensure an incremental supply of gas to Gaz Metropolitan Inc. of Montreal beginning not later than Nov. 1, and that Pan-Alberta offer its assistance in alleviating shortages being forecast in Ontario natural gas supplies for this coming winter and subsequently. i Open mind stand 1 taken on pipeline I By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON (CP) Interior Secretary Rogers Morton said Wednesday he once favored a trans-Canadian 1975 car prices to be TORONTO (CP) Car buy- ers may expect to pay "hefty" prices for 1975 model cars, David Collier, president of General Motors of Canada Ltd., said Wednesday: In an interview Mr. Collier referred to the rising cost of fuels and the effect they will have on car prices. "The rise in fuel oil is unbe- he said. "Not only has fuel oil risen, but so has coal. Under last year's con- tracts we paid a ton, now we are going to pay "We still don't have a good handle on it, but 1975 (car) prices are going to be quite hefty." Suggests CP Rail takeover REGINA (CP) A former director of the CNR wants the publicly-owned railway to acquire CP Rail. J. B. Sangster of Regina suggested in an interview that the amalgamation should also involve takeover of Air Canada by CP Air. Mr. Sangster, an investor and director of several Canadian companies, was a CNR director from 1957 to 1964. He proposed also that the federal government should provide more than billion to liquidate the CNR's debt, which has made the railway a chronic money-loser. The debt was acquired when the CNR took over several grivate railways. He said the air part of the transfers would give Canada "the largest and finest airline in the world, bar none." Cattle firm fined KAMLOOPS, B.C. (CP) Frolek Cattle Co. was Fined Monday in Provincial Court after pleading guilty on each of three counts of failing to provide enough feed for cattle. pipeline for Alaska's natural gas but now he is keeping an open mind about a rival trans- Alaska route while he weighs which method would be in the United States' best interests. He also said a "lot of preliminary discussions are going to have to be held with Canada to determine the viability" of the proposed route across Canada. In a statement and under questioning at a news confer- ence, Morton said he "must remain absolutely impartial until enough facts are in to permit us to make a judgment." The interior department and the U.S. Federal Power Com- mission are preparing a joint environmental impact study on the rival by a consortium which proposes to bring Alaskan and Canadian Arctic gas south by pipeline through Alberta, the other by El Paso Natural Gas Co. for a trans-Alaska line that would involve liquifying the gas and carrying it by tanker to the U.S. west coast. "In addition, the president has asked me to give him my best thinking on which route would serve the best interest of the nation, over Morton said. "It will take many months to sort this all out, but we will not-let any grass grow beneath our feet meanwhile." VIEW CHANGES The secretary, just back from a week in Alaska, said that at the time'the U.S. was considering whether to permit construction of a trans-Alaska oil pipeline, "it seemed then that the only really viable route was the Canadian one" for carrying the natural gas to the U.S. Since then, he said, a rival company has spent a great deal of effort and money to develop a proposal for a liquid-natural-gas alternative. He said it is highly doubtful that both pipeline routes could be fully utilized at once because only a limited amount of gas will be produced in the Alaska fields. Asked about reports that the state department is negotiating with the Canadian government about a trans- Canada route and whether this contradicted his statement about being openminded. Morton replied: "I didn't say everybody was neutral. I am. I can't say about the state department." But he added that there are numerous questions about the trans-Canada route that "are going to have to be talked about with the Canadians." "Out of these discussions will come the fundamental criteria which we will need to make our decision." The Alberta government has always agreed "Canadian requirements for "natural gas must be satisfied first, prior to the authorization of gas Bill Dickie, minister of mines and minerals, said in a news release. He added Pan-Alberta reported its offers of Alberta natural gas "to Ontario distributing cempanies were not accepted in 1973. But the Alberta government felt Pan-Alberta should now, "By means of a formal offer, ascertain whether or not circumstances had changed to the point where supply destined for export was necessary to meet an Ontario requirement." WILL DELIVER The arrangement between Pan-Alberta' and Gaz Metropolitan is that Pan- Alberta will deliver provincial gas to the Alberta- Saskatchewan border and there sell it to the Montreal firm, which will deliver the gas through TransCanada Pipelines for consumption ir, the Montreal area. The transaction between the Alberta and Montreal companies is "timely and hopefully the first of many Alberta Quebec trans- Mr. Dickie said. Cabinet approval of the permit to Pan-Alberta was made after the company changed its field purchase contracts to bring them in line with present provincial government pricing policy requirements. The provincial government has been seeking prices of about 60 cents per thousand cubic feet. Mr. Dickie said the Energy Resources Conservation Board has found the quantity of natural gas approved for removal by Pan-Alberta is surplus to the province's present and future requirements. Royal bank won't raise loan rate MONTREAL Bank of Canada said Wednes- day it does not intend to raise its prime lending rate at this time to bring it in line with in- creases announced Tuesday by the Bank of Montreal. As the first Montreal-based bank to respond to Bank of Montreal's action, the Royal broke tradition under which chartered banks match each other's prime rates. The announcement, .attributed to W. Earle McLaughlin, Royal Bank chairman and president, did not specify why the in- stitution decided to hold its prime rate at 11 per cent. The Bank of Montreal said Tuesday it is raising the prime rate to 11.5 from 11 per cent because of continuing strong loan demand. The Royal Bank's prime rate, or the rate accorded most favored corporate customers, rose to 11 from 10.5 per cent last month as part of rising interest rates among chartered banks across Canada. Planning board tables addition to College Mall An application to build a major addition to College Mall was tabled Wednesday by the Municipal Planning Commission to give the developers time to consider minor changes to the addition. The one-storey wing would be added to the northeast comer of the mall, adjacent to supermarket. Gary Seher. mall manager, told the commission the expansion is needed primarily to accommodate present tenants who require more space.

College Mall is controlled by Trizec Corp.. a British- owned development company which Business Week magazine claimed was one of the largest landowners in the country. Mr. Seher said A. D.
