I RED DEER (CP) The berta Fish and Game Associa- tion said Thursday it is con- ceined that public hearings conducted by Alberta En- vironment Conservation Au- re- be- thcrity on land use and source development may come a whitewash to give the appearance of democracy. Elmer Kure, environment re- lations director with the asso- ciation, told a public hearing that since lie spoke to the au- thority in Calgary last week, 34 of 130 coal leases in the Bow River forest have award- ed. Unless there is a freeze on cfoelopmnt permits, thj hear- ings will become a farce, Mr. Kure said. The association said it is con- cerned "that the public is not duped into belief that all is tvsll in the hills by bold-faced misrepresentation of fact by the use of terms that pur- port to save the natural ecol- ogy during and after exploita- tion or development." "We are still gullible enough in our growth-oriented society AI Rapeseed i embargo discussed OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment has considered pos- sible steps in reaction to a United States ban on oilseed ex- ports but no action will be taken at this stage. Prime Min- ister Trudeau told the Commons Thursday. Replying to Opposition Leader Rolje'rt Stanfield, he said fed- eral officials and the cabinet have met to discuss what to do if "hypothetical conditions pre- vail.' The American embargo on exports of soybeans, soybean oil and cottonseed oil was an- nounced by Hie U.S. govern- ment Wednesday. Mr. Stanfield said the ban may cause grain scarcities and higher food prices in this coun- try and asked whether the gov- ernment has a contingency plan to bead off protein-supply short- firm aivarded well project CALGARY (CP) A 77-well evaluation program on the Suf- field army experimental range north of Medicine Hat has been awarded to Whitco Drilling Ltd. of Medicine Hat, it was announced today. Bill Dickie, minister of mines and minerals, said the first stage of the program will in- clude the drilling of 27 wells "confined to locations not in- volved in active military train- ing-'' The program will be spaced over a two month period, and the initial well will be spudded on or before July 10. Mr. Dickie said tenders will be called for the second stage of 50 wells, with work to com- mence during the winter of 1973. He said the awards were made by the Suffield Evalua- tion Committee after a review of public tenders, and 14 other companies also received con- tracts to provide supply and services in support of the eval- uation program. A study by the Al- berta government has indicat- ed a natural gas reserve of up to four trillion cubic feet on the 1.000 square mile area. Mr. Dickie said Alberta owns 95 per cent of the sub surface rights to the block. Quebec MPs clash over Olympic Games financing OTTAWA (CP) acr- imony that has dogged plans to hold the 1976 Montreal Olym- pics resurfaced Thursday in the Commons, as one Quebec MP accused another of disgracing Quebecers by belittling the Two-party vote split disasterous KELOWNA, B.C. (CP) British Columbia Conservative leader Derril Warren said the NDP election victory Thursday night in Manitoba illustrates that the two party split of right wing voters is disas- trous. "And we're 33 1-3 per cent worse off in B C because we have three parties basically altar the right wing he said in an interview. "And as long as we continue to so divide it, (Premier) Dave Barrett and his (NDP) col- leagues will continue to form the government in B.C.." Mr. Warren added. He said he hopes the Manitoba results pro- vide the impetus necessary to get "at least Social Credit and Conservative" forces unified. Warren now is living here, where he is the Conservative nominee to contest South Oka- nagan Constituency when a by- election is called to fill the va- cancy caused by the resigna- tion of Social Credit Leader W. A. C. Bennett. Mr. Bennett, who campaign- ed in Manitoba last week on behalf of that province's small Social Credit party, would not comment on the Manitoba poll- ing. "I'm retiring from public life I won't be giving any comment he said. In Vancouver, B.C. Liberal leader David Anderson said re- sults in Manitoba "don't prove much one way or the other" except that the NDP's win in 1963 was no fluke, as many right wing observers claimed. had Women ordered to marry LAGOS (AP) An order compelling all unmarried women in the northern Nige- rian town of Mina to find husbands within seven days or "face the consequences" has forced many single women to flee the town. The order came from the chief of the town, Alhaji Ah- madu Bahago, the New Nige- rian newspaper reports. Chief Bahago also has or- dered all wives who have deserted their matrimonial homes to return to their hus- bands within the same period of face expulsion from the town. The chief's wrath is di- rected particularly against the town's prostitutes whose profession, he said, not only offends Moslem law but has tended to "mar the fortunes of young men and disorganize the homes of married people." CALGARY (CP) The fed- eral energy policy report re- leased Thursday could lead to of the hardest and pos- sibly dirtiest fights'1 between eastern Canada and western Canada. Calgary Oilman Carl 0. Nickle said Thursday night. Mr. NicUe, president of Con- ventures Ltd. and editor emer- itus of the Daily Oil Bulletin, said he feared "much of this material can be taken out of context and used for purely political and selfish reasons." INVOLVEMENT He said government involve- ment in petroleum operations, exports and the issue of for- v, e ara blind to the real need or ment is prepared to take any cign ownership of energy re- roason for allowing or disallow- action required but. none is source industries could set off to say some development is fine, even in a fragile area and Mr. Trudeau said the govern- East-west clashes seen over energy policy report ing the development." planned now. the biggesl dispute THIS WEEKEND at the LEGION FRIDAY NIGHT Cabaret SATURDAY Canadians" VIMY LOUNGE "Metros" MEMBERS AND INVITED GUESTS ONLY "If the politicians or anyone take some of these matters presented in the paper out of context, I can see them getting this country into a lot of trou- Mr. Nickle said Canada should try to develop addition- al reserves rather than just re- taining the known reserves for domestic use. A. R. Nielson, president of Mobile Oil Canada Ltd., said it would be unfair to ask the western producers to re-route their oil east after having fought for many years to es- tablish alternative markets for their surplus commodity. He said the policy report was apparently made without a fall knowledge of ihe energy re- sources that exist on the east coast Forest fire under control STONY RAPIDS, Sask. (CP) of this northern- Saskatchewan community be- gan returning Thursday after a forest fire threat was beaten back from the town'i outsorts. Games. Claude Wagner (PC-St. Hya- cinthe) accused Pierre De Bane parliamentary secretary for external affairs, of depreciating Montreal and Quebec in his plea for Parlia- ment to withhold support of the Olympics. Both men spoke during de- bate on a government bill to help finance the Games. "I prefer the builders to the protesters, I prefer those who do not spend their time whining and Mr. Wagner said. Mr. De Bane, in opposing the bill, said Montreal and Quebec cannot afford to throw away million on a two-week ath- letic exhibition while social problems plague the city and ts people. WOUJO END GAMES If the bill is defeated, the Games cannot proceed, he said. However, the bill is assured of Conservative support and is expected to pass by a wide margin. Only the New Demo- crats and Mr. De Bane have said they will vote against it. The bill, now in the second reading stage, would permit special stamps and coins and authorize a national lottery. Sale of and coins, stamps and other postal products, will raise million, Olympic offi- cials estimate. Treasury Board President C. M. Drury, outlining provisions of the bill, said the federal gov- ernment will contribute million to the Games. Of this, million is a direct grant to the CBC as host broad- caster and million is the estimated cost of security ar- rangements. Mr. Drury said security is necessary to protect the expected athletes and daily spectators from an attack like that at Munich last year when 13 persons were killed by terrorists in the Olympic vil- lage. Security "clearly is the fed- eral government's responsi- he said. Little change seen in new Police Act EDMONTON fCP) The new Alberta Police Act which becomes law July 1 will be "twice as ineffective'' as the old act, Al Edwards, chairman of the Edmonton Police Com- mission, said Thursday. Mr. Edwards said the only real difference in the new act is that the Alberta Police Com- mission will be split into two bodies a law enforcement board and a review board. "I don't think it will function in the way it is intended. What the government is doing is dividing the responsibility be- tween two bodies, but the bodies won't be doing anything more than the old one." Mr. Edwards called the Al- berta Police Commission a exercise which never got off the ground." Weather and road report SUNRISE SATURDAY SUNSET H L Pre.
