Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuttday, March LETHBMIDOE HERALD- 3 Dateline Alberta ,000 award advocated EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Human Rights Commission Monday recommended an award of more than to Geneva MacKay in an action against Dominion Fruit Division of Westfair Foods Ltd. The action, heard by an inquiry board headed by Jer- ome Reyda, an Edmonton lawyer, was started by Mrs. MacKay after she was forced to retire at age 60 under the firm's policy in 1971. The company's male employees are retired at 65. Mr. Reyda, in a written report, said an employer was not a guarantor of employment and may retire employees without cause "at any time upon reasonable notice." Man will be deported EDMONTON (CP) Immigration authorities say a Hungarian man is not a refugee and therefore will be deported. Guyula Toro was ordered deported Feb. 7 after a special inquiry found he had entered Canada illegally. Because he is Hungarian, the case was referred to an inter departmental committee in Ottawa which found Mr. Toro did not qualify for special consideration, as a refugee, R. D. Wick, acting administrator for the immigration service here, said Monday.

Midwest legislators 6to keep heat on9 Washington U.S. group fears loss of Canadian oil By BRUCE LEVETT WASHINGTON (CP) Legislators from six midwestern states, disturbed at the prospect of losing barrels a day in imports of crude oil from Canada, Monday put together a loose organization to seek ways of lessening the impact in their area. Describing the problem as "devastating for our refi- Representative Bob Bergland (Dem. Minn.) agreed to form a group to "keep the heat on" federal United States officials scheduled to open oil talks with Canada later this month. Bergland, and others who attended the one-day emergency meeting of midwestern senators, congressmen and energy officials, expressed concern over reports that extension of the Edmonton-to-Sarnia, Ont., oil pipeline to Montreal by late 1975 would cut off northern U.S. states from barrels of oil currently delivered in this area each day. "This is going to be an enormous loss if it all comes at our Bergland said. The meeting was set up to include governors of the states Wisconsin, North and South Dakota, Montana and Michigan. Because of a regional midwest meeting, however, no governors attended. Bergland said the problem is local in nature, but one that has to be tackled on a national level. His group would make certain U.S. delegates to the Ottawa meeting kept midwestern problems in mind. Asked how the U.S. could offset the potential loss of Cana- dian crude to northern U.S. refineries, Rufus Smith, deputy assistant secretary of state for Canadian affairs, said: "It seems to me we've got to look for alternative sources." William Simon, head of the Federal Energy Office, said that 15 per cent of the oil supply to the six states comes from Canada and added that "the intention of both countries is to co-ordinate any cutting of supply to the coming on stream of other U.S. energy sources." U.S. officials will take up the issue of orderly withdrawal of Canadian oil and "hope that we will be able to work out a transition that will be beneficial to both Simon added. He forecast a gradual reduction in worldwide oil prices and said Canadians had agreed to cut their export tax as the price fell. Smith said he would be "very much surprised" if Canada dropped its export tax altogether when it runs out at the erid of this month. He forecast that a new levy "of some sort" would be imposed. To the suggestion that there should be a huge investment from the U.S. Midwest to help develop the Alberta oil sands and encourage Canadian exports of oil from the sands to the Midwest, Smith said that in this regard Canada is unde- cided. "One of their concerns is that massive investment over a short period of time would distort the Canadian economy, driving up the Canadian dollar and therefore making Canadian products less competitive on the world markets." The U.S. has only begun to talk with Canadians about the oil sands, he said. the committee which administers the province's livestock disaster and predator loss indemnity program, Helmut Entrup, the committee's chairman, said in an interview Monday Canadian engine sale to Cuba stymied by U.S. Ports of entry: Times in Mountain Standard Time opening wl closing times: Carway 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Chief MoTCus: Hosed.

Under one option being stud- ied, the corporation would buy the engines from MLW-Worth- ington Ltd. of Montreal and resell them to Cuba. That might get around the U.S. Trading with the Enemy Act which prohibits direct trade with Cuba by U.S. firms or their subsidiaries in Canada and other countries. A direct sale to Cuba by MLW has been stymied at least temporarily by the U.S. law. The U.S. state department so far has withheld permission requested Feb. 11 by Studebaker Worthington New Jersey exemption of the Cuba deal from the Trading with the Enemy Act. That application, supported by the Canadian government, is expected to be reviewed personally by State Secretary Henry Kissinger, once he returns from the Middle East.
