Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta I-THILITHBRIDOE HERALD - Wednesday, March 10,1971 Calgary mayor tees off on Lethbridge plant TORONTO (CP)-The mayors of Hamilton and Calgary Tuesday complained that federal and provincial aid to low-opportunity areas is hurting cities like their own. Mayor Victor Copps of Hamilton told a conference of the Industrial Developers Association of Canada: "While the depressed communities can say 'Heads, we win,' those communities like our own which are not depressed are increasingly being forced to say 'Tails, we lose.' "The incentive programs are destroying the development programs in some of our more successfully industrialized areas. Why train your local development people to sell your area when the provincial and federal governments will bribe your, prospect to establish somewhere else? "Instead of development people, you need lobbyists so your area can be designated for these incentives." DISCUSSED ON PANEL Mr. Copps was speaking in a panel discussion with Mayors Rod Sykes of Calgary and L. C. Jones of Monoton, N.B. Mr. Sykes said programs adopted to stimulate industrial growth in low-opportunity areas may actually be damaging to successful areas and to the in-dustrial community in general. "The fact is that unemployment is highest in the areas most attractive to industry- where the people are, in the cities-and that is where there is the greatest need not only to maintain existing jobs but also to create new ones." Mr. Jones said such considerations as "clean air, clean water, clear-thinking people and community Uvability" will operate in the next five years to attract industry to smaller* cities. MISUSE PUBLIC MONEY The Calgary mayor gave this "sorry catalogue of misuse of public money": -"In the meatpacking industry, plagued with over-capacity, two plants (Union Packing and Calgary Packers) have closed in Calgary and a third (Burns) is modernizing an old plant at its own expense. A grant was provided to build a new plant in Lethbridge, 120 miles away-a plant to add to capacity in the industry, a plant paid for by Burns's taxes to compete, with a cost advantage, against their own plant which had received no gifts." -"In the fertilizer industry, when the new Federated Co-operatives plant in Calgary is lay ing off people, faced with over-supply and uneconomic prices, when Cominco is in the same position, is it really in the best interests of Canadian industrial growth to make grants to build a new Imperial Oil fertilizer plant at Redwater, Alta.?" Mr. Sykes also questioned the wisdom of grants to a new pulp project in northern Saskatchewan, a Regina pipe mill, a new Seagram plant at Gimli, Man., and a Hiram Walker plant at Kelowna, B.C. He said the only justification for any industrial development program "is that it creates a job that would not be created otherwise."
