Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Solurdoy, Marth 3, 1979 -THE LITHBPJDGE HERALD -23 Ownership bill tagged 'flag-waving' EDMONTON (CP) A pri- vate member's bill aimed at re- stricting foreign ownership was cailcd-an "exercise in flag-wav- ng" in the Alberta legislature. John Ashton (PC Edmon- on who introduced he bill, said foreign control in Alberta becomes evident when companies reduce spending or ny staff without thinking low the province will be affect- ed. The bill asks the legisla- ure to amend ths companies act to ensure a majority of di- rectors of-every company are resident Canadians. James Henderson, the Social Credit house leader, said any red blooded Canadian would like the nationalist idea in Hie bill. However, h3 asked if the government was willing to ac- cept the possible consequences of increased u n e m p 1 o yment end a lower standard of living that restricting foreign invest- ment could cause. B.C. government rocks the boat with land-use control scheme No ivages no ivar Cambodian soldiers mill around as thsy refuse to go into baltlo. The They hadn't been paid for several months. The erratic payment of Cambodian soldiers has given birth to many odd stories including one about commanders who draw pay cheques for "phantom battalions." Hansard costs soar Enrolment growth rate slackens EDMONTON (CP) The number of students in the prov- ince's public colleges is still growing but the growth rate has .been below projections, the Al- berta Colleges Commission says. J. F. Batty, director of fi- nancial services for the com- mission, said in an interview that whereas university full- time enrolments have been de- clining, college full-time enrol- ments are also falling below projections. In 1971-72, VICTORIA (CP) -If there was ever a doubt in the minds of British Columbians that there is a new government in power in the province, it was brushed aside with the New Democrat administration's boat-rocking proposals for land-use control. No sooner had Agriculture Minister .Dave Stupich an- nounced Feb. 22 his govern- ment's plan to set up a five- man commission with sweeping powers over all land in B.C. than an alarm went up. Newspaper editorials cried out that the NDP, in power a little over five months, had gone too far. Moderators of ra- dio open-line programs heard expressions of panic from farm- era and other B.C. residents that the government's move smacked of dictatorship. Opposition party leaders said the legislation was an in fringement of the Bill of Rights that it was autocratic and the first step towards socialist con trol of all land. The reaction from farmers groups was even stronger Some spokesmen advocated th farmers not plant their crop this year and others thai farm ers march on Victoria. Most critics agreed that th purpose of the legislation, pre servation of farmland, was gcxx but that the method used wa extreme and disturbing. the commission .'EDMONTON (CP) Han- port of the Hansard operation.

Mayor Petei Poolen of Victoria said it was good idea since municipality had proven unable to withstafl pressure from developers an preserve green land. Len Butler, Peace River r gion co-ordinator of the. N tional Farmers' Union, said h group sees no other way for the government to accomplish wh it wants than by taking t: powers outlined in the legis! tion. The concern of most of tho commenting on the legislati is that it gives this non-elecUx commission the power to "pui chase or otherwise acquire Ian on such terms and conditions the commission may consid advisable." It also allows the commissi dispose of land by sale, lease otherwise, subject only to the ams and conditions set by the mmission. Although Mr. Stupich argues at the commission will have power of -expropriation, any consider the purchase action permisive enough to al- w the government to ex- ropriale whatever land it ants. OULD ZONE PROVINCE The commission will also ave the power lo institute a iaster zoning plan for !lie rovince, designating land ?jr griculture, green belt, land ank or parks. Its zoning dec! ions overide any contrary eject ion made by a municipality 01 egional district. Municipal leaders and oppos! ion party critics say this woulc erode municipal and reglona board jurisdictions and abr ogate the traditional zon-jig au hority of local governments. Mr. Stupich says the govern ment is not assuming any pow ers it does not already posses [t holds the power of zoning bu nas melted it out to municipa ilies for more local control. Unfortunately, he says, som iVnicipalilies have alowed de- velopers to free a hand and as result there has been too much residential and industrial development on agricultural land. One side effect of the govern- ment's action will likely be a jump in the price of land follow- ijng passage of the bill, possibly at the current session. Real estate men point to a jump in raw land values even since December when the gov- f-r aafselpheiollnrwoei.Bwyfe ernment began its farmland preservation moves willi a freeze on any further farmland subdivision. LAND WOULD BE SCARCE If the land commission legis- lation is approved, the supply of subdivisible land in certain areas of the province will be lowered. By the law of supply and demand, the cost for such land will go up, real estate offi- cials reason.
