Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TuMday, March 12, 1974 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Dateline Alberta Fish farm possible EDMONTON (CP) Hot water produced from Alberta's thermal power plants could support a large- scale integrated fish farming and packing industry, says a local consulting firm. Ferguson, Harrison and Associates made the proposal in a submission to the Energy Resources Conservation Board hearing into Calgary Power Ltd.'s application for expansion. The hearing begins today. Calgary Power is seeking to add a fifth 375-megawatt unit to its Sundance power plant at Lake Wabamun, 35 miles west of Edmonton. The coal-fired plant will cost more than million and will be required to meet Alberta's power requirements by 1978, a Calgary Power spokesman said. New dimension added RED DEER (CP) An Edmonton man has added another dimension to a new sport by combining streaking with ski-kite flying. The man, in his early 20s, soared down a hill by the Red Deer River in front of the new Canyon Area Ski Lodge. The streaker, wearing ski boots and with his clothes wrapped in the struts of his kite, landed gracefully in front of the lodge and made a full turn before the spectators. Under cover of his kite, he quickly dressed and walked nonchalantly into the crowd, fully clad in a silver colored ski outfit.

North appeals to south about oil exploration SACHS HARBOUR, N.W.T. (CP) Residents of this iso- lated arctic community voiced concern Monday about oil exploration on their land and issued a poignant plea to Canadians in the south. The settlement council of Sachs Harbour, an Eskimo community in the southeast coast of Banks Island in the Arctic Ocean, miles north of Edmonton, issued a news release stating their opposition to a request by Panarctic Oils Ltd. to schedule year-round oil ex- ploration on the island. Such exploration now is con- fined to the period Oct. 1 to April 30.' 1 The people of Banks Island feel all oil activities should re- main restricted to the current deadlines. A motion to that ef- fect was unanimously passed by the council and the Sachs Harbour Trapper's Association. Panarctic is a consortium of oil companies and the federal government which has been doing extensive drilling in the north. "Sachs Harbour is an Eskimo settlement which has always been able to look after the council said. "Caribou, seals, polar bears, fish and geese have provided much of our food. White foxes, seals and polar bears have provided the money we need to live in the way we we want to live. "We think our rights to the land and the animals should be recognized by all Canadians as being most important and as having priority." Since 1970, when the oil companies "first came and told us that they were going to start working on Banks Island, we have had many fears about what it would do to the land and animals..." Several meetings were held with the oil companies and government to discuss the matter, the council said. During a meeting Sept. 30, 1970, "we agreed not to go to court over the matter providing that all work by the oil companies be done be- tween Oct. 1 and April 30 and providing that studies were made to find out about the ef- fect of the work on the land and animals." Liberals Northern councils would win to be expanded OTTAWA (CP) The federal government proposes to increase the membership of both the Yukon and Northwest Territories legislative councils but at the same time give them no more powers than they already possess. A government bill amending the parliamentary acts setting up the councils was given first reading in the Commons Monday and will come up for debate later in. the session. Northern Affairs Minister Jean Chretien wants the bill approved quickly so it will be in effect for territorial elections this fall. In a leap forward for the Northwest Territories, the government is discontinuing the practice of appointing prominent Canadians from outside the territory to council. Under the proposed legislation, all council members their numbers are increased to 15 from 14 must win election. In the Yukon, the present fully elected council expands to 12 members from seven. A formula also is proposed under which the Yukon council can expand to 20 members when the territory's population reaches or more. Erik Nielson (PC commenting on the proposals, said he disagreed with confining the Yukon council to 12 members now. VICTORIA (CP) Premier Dave Barrett said Monday the federal Liberals would win if they called an election on the issue of national ownership of Canada's natural gas and oil resources. He told the legislature that he believes the Canadian people respect the fact that the "integrity of the nation should not be shaken" by the economic issues surrounding the control of the country's gas and oil resources. The premier said such an election issue would serve to have the question of the nationalization of resources debated publicly and point up the fact that people in all the provinces are Canadians first and residents of individual provinces second. WORKERS' COMPENSATION BOARD ALBERTA First Aid Class LETHBRIDGE MARCH 18 19 25 26 APRIL 1-2-8-9 Scandinavian Hall to Each Craning. NOW No to worlnra under HM act OTTAWA (CP) Elements of a new transportation policy, including proposals to deal with rail boxcar shortages, are being discussed in cabinet, Prime Minister Trudeau said in the Commons Monday. Replying to opposition ques- tions, Mr. Trudeau said new policy suggestions also are being reviewed by Transport Minister Jean Marchand with western provincial transport ministers this week. Mr. Marchand is in Van- couver holding preliminary talks before a meeting with the ministers Wednesday. A spokesman for Mr. Marchand said outside the House that he will outline for the provincial ministers the position that the federal government should have tighter control of trans- portation. He said the federal govern- ment's lack of power in con- trolling freight rates will be a major item on the agenda. Le- gally, the rail companies have the authority to set their own rates though the transport commission may suspend or change them. The prime minister said the government is dealing with the reported shortage of hopper cars to carry grain and will announce its decision "in the proper manner." The wheat board has asked for additional hopper cars to carry grain. DENIES REPORT Replying to Elmer MacKay Mr. Trudeau said reports that CP Rail and Canadian National Railways have refused government directives to build more boxcars are untrue. Many western provincial leaders as well as federal leaders were questioning the national transport policy, the prime minister said. It was being reviewed by cabinet. Mr. Marchand said last Thursday that present trans- portation policy, which relies heavily on competition to pro- duce efficient and economic transportation, has many drawbacks. In certain areas of the country there was no real competition. He said he wants a new pol- icy placing greater manage- ment authority in government hands in the transport field.
