Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta JJ TH! lETHBRIDCt HERALD Soturttny, March 11, 1971 What's the holdup on a- I By C.nCG MclNTVRB I Hcrnlil Staff Writfr EDMONTON Former pre- mier Harry Strom suggested Friday failure to reach a cost- sharing agreement with Otta- wa over irrigation in the Vaux- iwll-Kolting Hills area is hold- ing up improvements to irri- gation in the whole province. The irrigation district in that nrea _ called the Bow River East Block Project unlike most others In Alberta, Is heav- ily finar.ced by the federal gov- ernment. Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer sidestepped -Mr. Strom's accusation made in the legislature. Dr. Hbrner would say only "We don't want to tip our po- sition prior to the conclusion of negotiations with the federal government in this whole mat- ter." It was Uie second straight day ilw opposition failed to get the Conservative government to reveal its position on a new cost-sharing program for irri- gation. Thursday Bill Yurko, minis- ter of the environment, and Don Getty, minister o{ federal and intergovernmental affairs, would only say that officials of both governments are currently discussing who should pay how much for irrigation. Friday Mr. Strom asked "has there been any suggestion how they might transfer the Bow River project (East Block) to the provincial Dr. Homer replied "the rea rehabilitation of Irrigation dis- tricts was the fact that they couldn't resolve this particular matter." On further questioning by the leader of tho opposition, llw minister of agriculture added that It's possible that Alberta could go ahead with a program to upgrade irrigation without solving the question of financial responsibility for the Bow Ilivcr east project. The federal government op- erates the Bow River east pro- ject with the aid of an advi- sory committee of local farm- ers. MOjt Irrigation districts are operated by local people.

PHONE 323-2702-327-3610 accepts call TAIPEI (AP) Chiang Kai- shek accepted his party's caV Friday to stay on as Nationalist China's president and confront the challenge posed by main land Chinese foreign-policy gains. "When my nation faces diffi culties there Is only one thing can Chiang said. "I mus' take it and struggle in order to fulfil the national mission.'1 Without mentioning National 1st China's expulsion from th United Nations or Presiden Nixon's recent visit to mainlanc I China, Chiang sairl: "It is good to have a change. If we can handle the change we can create a new future for our nation." At another point in a speech accepting his party's nomina- tion, he reiterated his promise to recapture the Chinese main- land. told (ha audience agreement on tiie project was not an ac- complished fact. David Kstrin of Toronto, gen eral counsel for the Environ mental Law Association, de- manded at the morning sitting that the government reveal its contracts with the developers. While the hearing was In progress, Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes appealed for its suspen sion in a telegram to Prims Minister Trudeau. He said appearances indicate the hearing is "being conducted by a jury of committed civil servant's, sitting in judgment on their own policy." ASKS NEW GROUP The mayor asked that a hear- ing be resumed with a commit- tee of "informed and completely independent western Canadi- ans." Mr. Gordon, senior assistant deputy minister of the depart ment of northern development and Indian affairs, told the learing there was no guaran- eed agreement and later told a questioner that opinions voiced .t the hearing would, indeed lave an effect. As the hearing progressed hrough its second day, fewer lew arguments were advanced, :ither to support Ihe Village ,ake Louise Ltd. plan or to op- lose it. After five of eight planned essions, 100 submissions have >een heard, with 41 in favor and ifl opposed. More than 350 writ- en briefs also have been filed. The plan which attracted the attention stemmed from a re- quest In 1965 by the parks jranch for submissions on a vis- tors' service centre, planned to consolidate unorganized c o n- struction in the area and to pro- vide additional accommodation. There were no takers untV Lake Louise Lifts Ltd. and Im- perial Oil Ltd., owners of Vil- lage Lake Louise Ltd., In proposed a million plan which included an upper village to cater to ski interests. ISSUES DEFINED The points of contention have become fairly well defined: the National Parks Act allows commercial projects of tho size of the Lake Louise plan; development an( resultant population would over whelm the environment an( cause deterioration; sufficient develop- ment had already occurred that the area was no longer con sidered natural; development wouli occur successfully outside thi park; the developmen was an attraction unto itsell something prohibited by th parks policy; such facilities fo skiing were compatible with national park. Some critics also suggeste the plan would be a preceder for similar development in othe parks and might prompt sti further expansion In Ban park; and asked whether company with foreign owne: ship should be developing a na tional park. n U ovt. cold shoulder rapped by south MLA We aim to SERVE you belter!

Fraser Canyon reopened J S- VANCOUVER (CP) The Fraser Canyon section of the IVans-Canada Highway, block- ed since esrly Tuesday by a massive rockslide, was re-open- ed to traffic Friday night. Tr complete long trip through rough north trail EDMONTON (CP) Ten huge double-tandem trucks Fri- day completed a trip, most of it over a rough trail bulldozed through scrub bush, from Edmonton to Inuvik, N.W.T. on the Mackenzie River delta. Tiie convoy, which had an lllh driver along in case ot in- jury or illness, took eight days to cover the distance and truck- ing officials believe it was the first major shipment delivered overland to Inuvik. George Hominiuk, manager o! Northline Transportation, own- ers of the trucks, said Friday the convoy carried its own fuel and "had no problems as far as I know, but I've not bp.en in touch since their arrival."

Mr. Manuel haj told the convention of the Na- ive Youth of Quebc Association Jiat Indians must negotiate with vernmenfs iu about heir claims before taking any other steps.

"To me, white people are friends, but th cy' re not going to tell me what to do.1' Mr. Manuel replied that "we can't kid re a mi- nority." ''We're kidding ourselves Jf we think we con get a settJe- inent so easily." Earlier, he told about 100 young Indians and Eskimos at tho convention that ft trip to Af- rica last December showed him how native peoples can be domi- nated by when the whites are a cause the whites hold the eco- nomic power. "After travelling to Africa and seeing how the majority has been oppressed, I'm no longer kidding myself that we can get any just settlement, or even he said in an interview later. He told the meeting that Indi- ans, "Eskimos and Metis want recognition as founders of Can- ada. "Only the French and Eng- li Rh nre recognized under the present Andy Moar, chairman of the association's founding commit lee, said the association hopes to exercise influence on the edu cation of Indians and Evkimos. He said the founding conven tfon, which ends Sunday, in eludes representatives from al viewpoints from Red Power to integration. Mr. Manuel said in the Inter view that if negotiation doesn1 get recognition of Indian claims Indians will have to seek sup- port in olher countries and a the United Nations. If that fails, "I think then th young people will take the vio- lent road." But he is "a bit o getting support from the Cana dian public before the Indians situation degenerates.
