20 THE ttTHWtlDGE HBCALD Monday, March Foreign capital needed for energy MONTREAL (CP1 F. T. Gale, newly-elected president of the Canadian Electrical Asso- ciation, says Canada's utilities are faced with heavy demands for new energy, making it nec- essary to seek large capital re- quirements. Mr. Gale, vice-president of Calgary Power Ltd, told the closing meeting of the associa- tion's general ar.ci marketing di- visions that utilities will invest billion this year. Even if a substantial part of the needed capital is self gener- ated, he said, money will con- tinue to be required from non- Canadian sources. "If the rest of the economy performs anywhere near its po- tential, competition for invest- ment funds will be he added. I "Across Canada, electric utili- ties have been faced with supplying energy demands that have been growing at a rate of 40 per cent greater than the 'growth of Canada's grass na- tional product in fixed dollars." i Although electric energy growth in 1970 in the two west- ern Columbia and substantially above that for the national aver- age, it is expected that a seven- I per-cent national growth will continue for at least five years. The time lapse from decision to production in today's modern plants is five years and the util- ities are committed to this growth and even to the 10-year growth. If growth continues on the same scale, it will mean doubling existing facilities by 1980. Oddities in the News HE CAN EAT NOW VTNELAND, NJ. (AP) James Chasse has lost 195 pounds and gained a career.

The alliance wants to know first if armed 'orces personnel want a union. It plans to find out from polls being earned out by opposition MPs and questionnaires distrib- uted to the military by alliance members. Conflicting results are being reported from early returns of the polls. Some of the MPs have agreed to share their results with the alliance though they are not yet committed to the idea of collective bargaining for the armed forces.
