Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, LETHBRIDQE Dateline Alberta Cattlemen face ruin CALGARY (CP) Alberta's independent livestock farmers would face financial ruin if the dispute between the three major meat packers and their workers prolongs, Ian Chisholm, President of the Western Stockgrowers' Association said Friday. "Following a terrible winter when the price of feed grain shot up and the demand for hjef dropped, this dispute is the worst thing that could have happened." He said his association is not taking sides in the dispute between labor and management of Swift Canadian, Burns Foods and Canada Packers but farmers "simply want to get back into business."

A Icohol centre is overflowing BONNYVILLE, Alta. (CP) The directors of the Bonnyville Indian-Metis Rehabilitation Centre have asked Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien to provide funds which would enable Alberta Indians to enter Saskatchewan Native Treatment Centres. A telegram to Mr. Chretien says that Alberta Native- Alcoholism Treatment Centres are filled to capacity but that there is room in Saskatchewan native oriented centres. Money is required to admit Alberta natives into the Saskatchewan centres, said the telegram. The telegram, copies of which were released to the press, said payments for treatment centre admissions have been stopped by the Department of Indian Affairs. Instead, native people are told to enter the Kenwood Treatment Centre, 10 miles north of Edmonton, or Poundmakers's Lodge in Edmonton, said the telegram. The telegram said native people have found that "the middle-class oriented institutes of Kenwood failed to provide the kind of treatment and follow-up services required by the native people." "At this time the Poundmaker Lodge, while providing a meaningful service province wide, is unable to accommodate all native people who wish treatment there. we are informed that the Poundmaker's Lodge will be re-locating to another building in St. Albert (10 miles northwest of Edmonton) and it will take some time before they can resume full-time operation The telegram said "at this point there is no need for us to mention or to describe the magnitude and devastation of the alcohol-related problem that continues to effect the Indian communities." Canada may lose top geologists CALGARY (CP) Canada would lose many petroleum geologists unless federal and provincial politicians develop, in co-operation with industry, a sensible energy policy, says James Law, President of the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists. Mr. Law released Friday a letter he sent to the leaders of the four major national political parties, the federal Ministers of Energy and Finance, and the 10 provincial premiers. In it, he said the exodus of professional personnel to other countries and other disciplines has already started. He said the political and economic climate in Canada is discouraging petroleum geologists to stay in the business and in Canada. Mr. Law said growing concern has also been New rate CALGARY (CP) City Council has passed its second budget bylaw for 1974, taxing single-family homes at 53.9 mills, apartments at 60.6 mills and commercial-industrial property at 87.5 mills. The new mill rate was established Monday after the previous mill rate 53.9 mills for homes, 68.9 for apartments and 83 for commercial industrial prop- erty was ruled illegal by a district court judge. The third and final reading of the new mill rate was narrowly passed, five votes to four. Mayor Rod Sykes was one of the four who wanted council to delay passing the bylaw and Appeal Judge L. S. Turcotte's decision. expressed by students and faculties at universities, who are questioning the viability of earth sciences in Canada. He said federal and provincial governments should, "in concert with industry, begin serious, meaningful, non-partisan discussions immediately, in order to provide assurance that plentiful fossil-fuel resources will continue to be developed for the benefit of Canada." Mellstrom found guilty CALGARY (CP) William Donald Mellstrom, 19, of Calgary, was found guilty Thursday of criminal negligence causing the death of three people and the injury of a fourth and was remanded to July 19 for sentencing. Louise Margaret Schirle, 29, Carol Matthews, 18, and Michael Joseph Johnson. 7. all of Calgary, were killed at a city bus stop when struck by a car last Dec. 10. A fourth Calgarian, Sharon Carter, 20, was injured. The same car hit three parked cars before the bus- stop incident. Mr. Justice Peter Greschuk of the Alberta Supreme Court said Mellstrom. who took barbituates before the incident, knew that he was in no condition to drive. He said the defence of involuntary action wouldn't apply as Mejlstrom voluntarily took the drugs and knew their mind-numbing effects. Jaywalking crackdown recommended CALGARY (CP) A cor- oner's jury recommended Fri- day that the fine for jaywalk- ing should be substantially in- creased from the current to act as a deterrent. The jury made the recommendation at an inquest into the death of Joseph Cornelius Bowman, 75, of Calgary, last April 23. It determined that he was killed when struck by a car while jaywalking. Plant decision tabled CALGARY (CP) The Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board reserved judgment Friday on an application by Home Oil Co. Ltd. and Alminex Ltd. to build an oil-sands plant. The board is not expected to hand down a decision for several months, said Board Chairman George Govier, as the two companies have yet to submit details of proposed financing. Home and Alminex are try- ing to organize a consortium of companies to finance and operate the plant, with a proposed daily capacity of barrels of synthetic crude, in the Athabasca oil sands. Ian Drum, Home Vice- president, told the board that his group has to clarify a number of issues before mak- ing a final decision on the pro- ject. Among the uncertainties to be considered, he said, are provincial royalty payments, federal corporate taxes and export policies, lending costs, and energy prices. R. A. MacKimmie, counsel for Petrofina Canada Ltd., said his client is concerned that the proposed Home Alminex project is scheduled for the same time as Petrofina's. However, Petrofina is not opposed to the Home-Alminex project, he said. Both groups plan to begin major construction in 1978 and begin initial production in 1982.
