Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 3tTHE 1ETHBRID0I HERALD - Friday, March 5, 1971 Mackenzie Valley pipeline urged OTTAWA (CP) - Energy Minister J. J. Greene said yesterday he suggested to American oil interests "it might be preferable" to apply for per-missioin to build a Mackenize Valley pipeline rather than ship Alaska oil along the British Columbia coast in tankers. New Democratic Leader T. C. Douglas asked the minister in the Commons whether it was true that he had invited the oil industry in a visit to Washington Tuesday to build such a pipeline. Not in those terms, said Mr. Greene. What he did point out was that the proposed tanker system would be very dangerous from an ecological point of view and that it might be better to bring the pipeline question before the National Energy Board where ecological questions could be considered. Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield asked whether Mr. Greene had given any indication to the U.S. oil interests about control and ownership of such a proposed pipeline. Mr. Greene said he reaffirmed his earlier statement that control of such a pipeline would lie with a Canadian regulatory body and that Canadian to sources would have access the line. Mr. Douglas asked why Mr. Greene had suggested a pipeline route while a study on the ecological effects of such a line have not yet been completed. The minister said that the energy board would consider all aspects of safety. External affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp said he believes the US. government "will consult quite fully" with Canada on the decision about the alternative routes for Alaska oil. Louis Comeau (PC - South Western Nova) urged the government to demand full bilateral negotiations on the question. The issue of a continental oil policy-desired by the U.S. -could not be separated from the ecology. Mr. Sharp said the U.S. is not bargaining for a continental energy policy. He had never heard that suggested by a responsible member of the U.S. government. Although informal talks were being held, such as Mr. Green's visit this week to Washington. Mr. Sharp had received no^ reply to letters he had sent U.S. Secretary of State William Rogers on the pipeline question. Pickersgill would agree to end of charter flights OTTAWA (CP) - J. W. Pickersgill, president of the Canadian transport commission, said Thursday he would recommend ending affinity charter flights if Canada could do so unilaterally. New awards for bravery to be made OTTAWA (CP) - Government House will start making new Canadian awards for bravery this year, Col. D. C. McKinnon, comptroller at Government House, said today. Canada no longer accepts British decorations and new Canadian medals for various degrees of heroism, military and civilian, are being struck. Prime Minister Trudeau has taken the process entirely out of political hands by transferring responsibility for awards from the state secretary's department to Government House. Col. McKinnon told the Commons miscellaneous estimates commititee that some 250 Canadians are awaiting awards. They will be the first to receive the new Canadian decorations. He said a maximum staff of nine at Government House will process the applications for civilian awards. The military would process their own. . Col. McKinnon said names of the medals have been worked out-they will be announced later-and that the dies are being cast. Boiirassa plans European trip QUEBEC (CP) - Premier Robert Bourassa's first official European trip April 12 to 22 will be primarily for discussions on the economy with government leaders and businessmen, says the premier's office. Mr. Bourassa is scheduled to meet President Georges Pompidou and Prime Minister Jean-Jacques Chaban-Delmas of France and Prime Minister Emilio Colombo of Italy. A highlight of his stay in Rome will be an audience with Pope Paul VI. PHALT^ ZING 1 ASHPHALT PAVING TOLLESTRUP SAND and Construct PHONE 328-2702 - "I can't understand the rationale of saying that because 100 people have belonged to a particular organization they should be permitted to get a cheaper rate to cross the Atlantic," he told the Commons transport committee. Under the affinity rule of the International Transport Association, an organization can charter a flight at cheaper rates than ordinary scheduled flights. Mr. Pickersgill said that the affinity rule can only be eliminated through international negotiation. "Up to now all the European countries have supported the affinity rule in I ATA." The consequences of unilateral action by Canada against the affinity rule would be that the receiving countries would refuse to let charter flights from Canada land there, he said. "I would like to see us strive as far as we can to find some formula which would be acceptable to the receiving countries because I don't like the affinity rule." Replying to Grant Deachman (L-Vancouver Quadra), Mr. Pickersgill said it is difficult to determine what effect the charter operators now have on scheduled airlines. AMA issues warning to municipalities EDMONTON (CP) - The Alberta Motor Association will oppose any municipality threatening the right of individual choice in private or public transportation, L. 0. Sanders, association president said here. The association is not opposed to rapid transit, but "we are opposed to the concept of financing rapid transit through additional taxation on the motorist and their abandonment of existing and proposed freeways and expressways," Mr. Sanders told the annual Edmonton bmach meeting. The association is concerned about the matter of air pollution, as it relates to the automobile, he said, but legislation already enacted "will undoubtedly cure a major portion of this problem within the next few years.
