Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Adopt Indians VANCOUVER (CP) Chief Justice John Farris ruled Friday that non-Indian parents may adopt an Indian child without depriving the child of rights under the Indian Act. He gave the ruling in allowing an appeal against a judgment by a British Columbia Supreme Court judge last April that the adoption of a five-year-old Indian boy by a white family would deprive the child of property rights he would enjoy as an Indian. Alberta should leave Confederation because Ottawa 'plunderingprovince9 EDMONTON (CP) President John Rudolph of Bluemont Resources Ltd. of Calgary said Friday Alberta should leave Confederation because the federal government is "plundering the province." Mr. Rudolph, whose organization, the Independent Albert Association, has a meeting scheduled March 12 at High River to discuss his proposal, said Alberta is paying too high a price to remain part of Canada. "This province has the internal resources to survive comfortably as a viable said Mr. Rudolph, who predicted a movement toward secession would gain momentum as long as the federal government continued to take Alberta into directions the province does not approve. "I'm not talking just about he said in an interview "The agriculture industry is in the same boat. We also have heavy coal deposits and the Athabasca Oil Sands to help make us self-suffjcient." Mr. Rudolph said his reaction was triggered primarily by Ottawa's growing involvement in provincial resources. Alberta produces about 1.7 million barrels of oil a day, he said, which at current prices means million a day leaving the province after the export tax has been repaid The total lost to Alberta is about billion a year about three times the total provincial budget he said, suggesting that Alberta as an independent country would be so wealthy that its citizens would not have to pay income taxes, gasoline taxes none of'the current provincial taxes at all."

Tie Diefenbaker tells Goyer to stick to pots, pans By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA An admonition to the supply and services minister in the cabinet to "stick with his pots and pans and Sani Flush" and leave the Athabasca Tar Sands alone, was administered in the commons Friday by John Diefenbaker, former prime minister and Conservative MP for Prince Albert. He welcomed Energy Minis- ter Donald Macdonald back from his quick trip to the Middle East. He asked if the goverment was giving any consideration to loans from foreign governments such as Japan, to develop the Athabasca tar sands. Mr. Macdonald said the gov- ernment has received several indications that there is interest abroad in the development of the tar sands. He said the federal govern- ment was prepared to have further discussions with the Alberta government on this subject. However because of the tempo of developments which he believed lay ahead in. the next decade, he did not see much room for large scale ex- ports. Mr. Diefenbaker wanted to know if Supply and Services Minister Jean-Pierre Goyer was aware of the approach from Japan when he made speeches across the country advocating a crash program for development of the tar sands of Alberta for the productjon of oil. Mr. Goyer talked of spending billion on the project in order to get 2.5 million barrels a day flowing to markets by 1982. So enthusiastic did the supply and services minister become in calling on the government to accept foreign investment immediately for development of the tar sands that External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp had to administer a verbal rep- rimand. Mr. Sharp said: "Mr. Goyer has made it quite clear this is his personal view. It's not mine. It's not the governments." Mr. Sharp also pointed out recently when, questioned about the cabi- net's position that Mr. Macdo- nald had made it clear also that it is not government policy that Mr. Goyer has been advocating. Mr. Goyer's reply to this brush off from his cabinet col- leagues was that the cabinet has not yet developed a firm policy with respect to foreign investment in the tar sands and until such a policy has been formulated he is free to speak his mind on the subject. Mr. Diefenbaker enquired in the house Friday if Mr. Goyer was speaking for the govern- ment and laying down govern- ment policy on the tar sands? Mr. Macdonald said with a smile that the minister of sup- .ply and services is an "en- thusiast" on the subject of the tar sands. The former prime minister said it was obvious the minister of supply and services was not speaking with the authority of the government OTTAWA (CP) federal government surplus in Financial operations the first 10 months of this fiscal year, Finance Minister John Turner reported Friday.- The surplus so far this year is well below last year's figure of million in the same The finance minister said in the government's monthly statement of financial operations that budgetary revenues totalled .million while expenditures were million to the end of January. Livestock imports stopped OTTAWA (CP) Canada has stopped all imports of British cattle, swine and meat following an outbreak of hoof- and mouth disease in the Channel Islands. A. E. Lewis, director of the agriculture department's contagious diseases division said Friday that the country is "not taking any cattle, swine or meat until the disease has been totally eliminated" on the islands. There have been no such imports for some months now he added. Canada has been fite of the incurable, highly -contagious disease since 1952.
