By GREG McINTYRE EDMONTON say that land use regulations in Al- berta are going to be a thorny issue is an understatement. Talk of land use to combat rising land costs atid the erosion of coen space is all the rage and nowhere without high emotions. Tlic boldest step has been taken by the government of British Columbia which react- ed lo the cries of planners and conservationists by freezing the sale of all farm- land. Farmers parlicularily Ihose wanting to sell or sub- divide found Iheir toss stepped on hardest and react- ed with angry threats to march on the legislature. The freeze in B.C. is lo continue, however, until a commission is established with powers to preserve land lor agriculture, parks and "greenbelts" around urban areas. In Alberta farmers acled iirst and talked later. They marched on the legis- lature protesting (he lack of regulations needed lo save farmland from communal and corporate ownership. It's to be hoped that a study of rural land use proposed by the Lougheed government in response to the protest won't just be a diversionary tactic to take pressure off the gov- ernment to do something. There's also a danger that Ihe hullaballoo about the "Hulterife menace" could ob- scure the need lor a good look at the larger issue of land use. The premier made a coura- geous start by telling the more than 300 demonstrators who marched on Ihe legisla- ture that discriminatory laws like the Communal Properties Act will not be accepted in a civilized society. It's to be hoped he'll show the same fortitude when the time comes to take some ac- tion to preserve small com- munities and the famiV farm against large land holders. It's going to be tough. Free enterprise and the right to private land owners- ship are deeply held beliefs in this last-stronghold against "suffocating socialism." Regulations if unpopular are at least being discuss- ed in many parts of the prov- ince at present. At a land use seminar in Edmonton last week Dr. C. F. Bcnlley, head of soil science at the University of Alberla, remarked "I'd like lo see us get a lillle tough wilh stupidity we must ston clods from doing things wilh our land which threat- ens Us future.'1 NDP leader Grant Notley, reacting to the provincial gov- ernment's proposed land stuciy, spoke ot "mindless ur- banization" moving out from the cities destroying valuable farmland. At a Medicine Hat confer- ence on recreation and open space Dr. Chester Beatty of the University of Lethbridge gpoeranhy department declar- ed that western Canada is no longer blessed with an abun- dance li available recreation- s'! land a myth that never- tireless persists in some cir- cles. The platitude about "better use of land" is no longer enough. Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer summed it up during a speech in tbe legislature last week. He said regula- tions are coming bul they are in conflict with the pion- eer spirit that is still very nr.ich alive in Alberta. He said many people have been throwing the term 'land use regulations' around rather loosely. Your forefath- ers and mine came to west- Canada because they could own their own land, because Ihe land was Ihere to own, they could farm it and have control over it that is pretty deeply ingrained in me. am also concerned every time I see a highway through some black soil surely a highway could go on Ihe rock pile over there some- where rather than right in the jnirWe of that nice field. "When you start talking about land use. my advise would be to think through clearly and specifically what you're talking about. In the future we may have to come to some land-use legisla- (ion (bul) I would hone (onlv) after a good look at the im- plications of that kind of legislation." The vacancy In the Cal- gary Foothills riding caus- ed by the death of Telephones and Utilities Minister Len Werry came up briefly dur- ing the Social Credit caucus Friday. The pros and cons of Ihe Sacred Party leader rrithcut a seat, Werner Schmidl, con- testing the consliluency were nu'.Lled over to no conclus- ion. Observers sec it as a tough one for the Socreds and speculate lhat the party would b? wire to have a Sacred MLA step down Cypress, Lethbridge Eaet, Taber-War- ner? and make it a two- seat byelectiori. The New Democrats are likefy to he in tire Calgary contest when it comes perhap's wilh Nancy Eng, a Calgary teacher and president of the provincial NDP party organ- ization. Liberal leedcr Bob Russell there are currently no Liberals in the legislature says he'll run. A possible Socred is Bill Downton, a Calgary lawyer who unsuccessfully sought the party presidency at the re- cent partv convention. It's unlikely the Tories, still by Mi-. Werry's dealh, have even started thinking about a replacement. A by- eiection isn't likely to be called until the legislature ad- journs and the seat probably could be left vacant until an early general election. Al "Boomer" Adair, mini- ster without portfolio respon- sible for northern develop- ment, must be wondering' if his request for the RCMP to investigate three Slave Lake residents will ever be forgot- ten. Uncle Charlie, an irrever- ent cartoon character in the Slave Lake newspaper, had Mr. Adair on his mind in this week's issue. The cartoon caplion read: Charlie says with due respect for the late minister, I suggest Boomer Adair be made the new telephones min- ster. That way he wouldn't have to bother the he could just tap everyone's line French farm researcher to speak here March 26 A member of the National In- stitute for Agronomic Research in Paris, France, will address the agricultural community and general public in Letn- bridge March 26 at Even Erick- sen's Family Restaurant.
