Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Mcnday, Marctl 12, 1973 AY the legislature Premier keys on energy By GREG McINTYRE EDMONTON Premier Peter Lougheed lakes keen interest in energy maltevs. Whenever matters of oil, natural gas or coal come up in the legislature, the pre- mier listens carefully and often fakes (ho initiative in making his views known, Energy is an issue on which Mr. Ixmghccd is build- ing a national reputation. It's an ideal political issue vi- tally important and very complex. During hearings into oil revenues last year in Ed- monton both government and industry representatives con- fessed they didn't understand how prices are set for pe- troleum, the matter is so complicated. There's plenty of room for fancy political footwork. In the current "energy cri- sis" the spade in Mr. Loug- heed's hand is that Alberta is Canada's energy province producing about one-third of the country's oil. more than any ether province. Eastern Canada and the United States must listen when our premier speaks. Premier Lougheed has Something Is Happening At RtVOSTOW Now Available!

Phono 317-5777, 327-5888 Open Monday Ihru Friday o.m. lo 5r30 p.m. Saturday a.m. to p.m. FSEE DELIVERY "CHARGEX" RWOSTOK COMPANIES LTD. stepped boldly into the en- ergy game with a two-price policy for Alberta natural gas. The benefit of lower prices to Albertans will help demolish Mr. Lmighecd's po- litical opponents within the province at the next election. The success of tha hvo- price plan lias national sig- nificance and could carry Mr. Lougheed to the east as a strong candidate to succeed Robert Stanfield. The appointment ot Bob Dowling as minister of the new department of consumer affairs was a blow to tour- ism, the office Mr. Dowling was previously exclusively responsible for, but will now manage as a second re- sponsibility. Tourism was billed dur- ing the Conservatives' first year in power as the pot at the end of the rainbow that would provide a multi-million dollar a year boost to the eco- nomy. Mr. Dowling made a start only a creat- ing a new awareness of the importance of the visitor in- dustry and establishing a new equitable formula for distribut i n g government as- sistance to (he local tourist zones. The enthusiastic promotion- oriented MLA for Edson was an ideal type for the tourism job. Unfortunately, those qualities do not lend them- selves well to the suspicious watchdog role of a consumer protection minister. A better choice for the new portfolio might have been Ron Chiller, a Calgary law- yer, wlio gave an impressive expose of mortgage lending "rip offs" in his speech in the budget debate last week. Even younger Conservative MLAs like Julian Koziak (Ed- monton Strathcona) or Dave King (Edmonton Highlands) M-ho have showed promise on committee business would have been more suitable for consumer affairs. Consumer protection would even have been made an of- fice in the attorney general's department or the depart- ment of manpower and labor of the more legalistic watchdog portfolios. NDP leader Grant Notley's "meaty" speech in the bud- get debate was a lesson in the subtleties of opposition politics. It was an opposition election speech, compared APPLIANCE and TV CENTRE with the kind ot pure opposi- tion speeches that have come from the Social Credit MLAs who have spoken so far in the hudget debate. Mr. Notley criticized gov- ernment budget proposals very deftly tn his speech, but lie went further and added the positive alternative what the voter might expect if iin NDP government took office an unlikely thought, however. The less sophisticated Soc- red speeches simply attack- ed. The simple attack has nevertheless been very ef- fective. Under the new Soc- red ho'.ise leader Jim Hender- son the Socreds have in fact regained ttieir proper role as the official opposition a role that appeared to bo Mr. Notley's last year. With his more thoroughly researched speech, Mr. Not- ley at this stage is at least one step more ready for tho next election. John Ashton, until last week the "hippest" MLA on either side of the assem- bly with his fuzzy Afro hair style. The Conservative MLA for Edmonton Ottewell was al- most unrecognizable when he showed up with a very short trim. There was great glee and desk thumping as Mr. Ashton stood up to speak. One Socred wit shouted "stranger in the house" the signal in fusty-musty parlia- mentary tradition for the ser- geant-at-ai-ms to evict some- one who has stepped onto the floor of the house without au- thorization. However, the sergeant-at- arms was taking part in the merriment too and took no action to oust Hie slightly blushing Mr. Ashfon. It should have surprised no one when Premier Lougheed sent a telegram Friday urg- ing Ottawa to get behind the Edmonton chapter of the Am- erican Indian Movement demonstrating in support cf brothers at Wounded Knee, South Dakota. If Mr. Lougheed goes to Ot- tawa to contest the leader- ship of his national party, he may go as "the little chief." Like the big chief, John Die- fcnbaker, he is an honorary chief. One example, was the Loughced Alberta Dill of Rights patterned on Mr. Die- fenbaker's Canadian Bill of Rights. Prairie shipyards crane loads sealed containers on railroad cars bound for eastern seaports Lethbridge is inland Atlantic port By JIM MAYBIE Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge has become one of the biggest inland ports in Western Canada, John Dierckx, formerly of Lethbridge and now manager of sales and service for CP Ships freight services division, says "Lethbridge is one of the better exporting areas in West- ern Canada. "Lethbridge has surpassed some of the larger industrial areas in Western Canada in con- tainer exports." The containers referred lo by Mr. Dierckx are an integral part of CP vessels which trav- el weekly between Quebec City and Greenock, Soodand, Liver- pool and London, England and Rotterdam, Holland. Once across the ocean con- tainers are reloaded aboard rail fiatcars, trucks or other small- er ships for transport through- out the U.K. and continental Europe. Basically the containers are aluminum boxes about eight feet high, eight feet wide and 20 or 40 feet long. They are capable of holding pounds of export prod- uct. There are various types of containers to suit many require- ments. Some have open tops tarp covers, some have er.ds or sides or tops which open. They are used to transport everything from cars, macliin- cry and steel sheets to peris h- able products, Mr. Dierckx said in a "Herald interview. There are temperature con- trolled units which can reduce temperature inside the units to 32 degrees below zero. Some containers a year are moving out of Leth- bridge carrying hides, beef, of- fals, grass and mustard seeds, honey, mashed potatoes, can- r.ed and frozen vegetables, scrap metals, bulk and bagged peas, the containers can also handle bulk liquid shipments. The containers are used ex- clusively for foreign trade. There are several advantages to using the standard-size con- tainers, said Mr. Dierckx. Exporters can sell their prod- ucts in smaller lots, opening the doors to more customers. There is less pilferage. Shipmenls can be handled faster at less expense. There is less damaged goods and less chance ot losing a box of parts required for putting together a piece of machinery. With containers there is door- to-door service. A person mov- ing his household furniture to or from the U.K. or Europe, for example, simply has a container left at his. house, loads it up, seals the doors and the furniture is delivered by high-boy trailer to its new des- tination. For the businessman, a con- tainer couM mean instant cash for his product instead of hav- ing to wait until the product is loaded aboard ship. As containers are considered a part of the ship, the product being exported is considered, in effect, to be aboard ship as soon as the container is loaded ard sealed. Southern Alberta has become such a user of containers that the western regional office for container freight was moved from Winnipeg to Calgary last year.
