Energy board chief predicts gas shortage OTTAWA (CP) The chairman of the National Energy Board predicts Canada will be short of natural gas by the end of this decade if the fuel continues to be a better buy than alternatives. Marshall Crowe said that "a lot depends on what happens to relative prices" in assessing whether a shortage will develop. He was commenting in an interview on a published article by Eric Kierans, a former federal cabinet minister who left the Liberal government in a dispute over resource development. Mr. Kierans said in the March issue of Canadian Forum that the energy board was misled by the natural gas industry in approving exports in 1970. Mr. Crowe, appointed to lead the board last fall, said he was reluctant to comment on decisions before his term, but he said the formula used by the board in assessing surplus "seemed to be reasonable" at the time. Mr. Kierans had referred to a decision to allow export of 6.3 trillion cubic feet, based on an assessment (hat Canada had a surplus of 6.4 trillion cubic feet. "There have been a lot of developments since then and hindsight is always a lot easier than forecasting." Mr. Crowe said. "We need all the gas we can lay our hands now and at the end of the decade." Mr. Kierans said the board, at the time of the 1970 decision, cited an estimate of the Canadian Petroleum Association in granting the export permit. Mr. Crowe said it was not true that the board "simply took the estimate provided by industry." The board has a staff of experts to provide it with an analysis of the supply situation. Mr. Kierans, in the Canadian Forum article, called on a more recent industry projection to support his assessment of prospective shortages. He quoted published reports of projections made by Canadian Gas Arctic Study Group Ltd. that there will be a shortage of about one per cent of Canadian needs by 1979. Canadian Gas Arctic is a consortium planning an Arctic natural gas pipeline. Mr. Kierans also said it ap- peared from the energy state- ment made by Prime Minister Trudeau in December that the government was committed to having an Arctic gas line built. "We certainly don't intend to do any rubber Mr. Crowe said. He said it was his inter- pretation that the prime minister intended to assure the United States that there would be no problems with shipping Alaska natural gas across 'Canada if the pipeline is approved by regulatory agencies. "There was no commitment of any kind in it." Mr. Crowe said natural gas now is underpriced relative to alternative fuels, such as oil. but he avoided being specific on price prospects. Asked if he believed natural gas prices would rise to a level comparable with oil prices, he said there would be "pressure that way." Arts expenditures expected to rise OTTAWA (CP> Canada Council expenditures on the arts are expected to rise almost 15 per cent to million in the fiscal year starting April 1. compared with million in the current year. Spending estimates tabled in the Commons last week also show a seven-per-cent increase in council outlays in support of research in the social sciences and million in the new fiscal year compared with million this year. The speech from the throne opening the new session of Parliament last week said legislation will be proposed to create a new social sciences and humanities research council, leaving the Canada 2 injured in collision Two Leihbridge men are in satisfactory condition this morning in St. Michael's hospital following an intersection collision Monday night. .Hugh Arian Olson, 27, 47 1343 Scenic Dr., was the driver of a northbound car on 17th St. S. which collided with another vehicle eastbound on 12th Ave., driven by Lloyd Edwin Burwash, 96, of 1135 Lakeland Cres The other man in hospital. Jack Rke. 2118 12th Ave. S.. was a passenger in the Burwash vehicle. Damage is estimated at Council to devote its full attention to the arts. The spending estimates show the council is budgeting for little change in its endowment and other income, apart from parliamentary appropriations. When the council was set up in 1957. it was given million, the equivalent of taxes received from the rnuiti-miilion-doliar estates of Sir James Dunn and Izaak Walton Kiilam. and was to live off the interest and dividends. The estimates show the council expects endowment income of million in the new the same as tb's year. Tr.e government began giving money directly to the council from Hie treasury in 1965. For the new year, the appropriation to be voted by Parliament is million, compared with million this year. With the endowment income, and income from other sources including money earmarked for international cultural exchanges, the total income of the council for the 1974-75 fiscal year is expected to be million, compared with million this year, an increase of 10 per cert.
