Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Government told to take stand on U.S. oil tanker route plans OTTAWA (CP) - The government must reverse its "indecision and vacillation" and take a strong stand against U.S. plans for an oil tanker route down the British Columbia Coast, Conservative House Leader Gerald Baldwin told the Commons Friday. ' Mr. Baldwin (Peace River) 'said the tanker route between Alaska and Washington state would create an "exceptionally dangerous situation." A pipeline through the Mackenzie Valley in Canada to the central United States would be a reasonable alternative if adequate safety measures could be taken. The Alberta Conservative was speaking in debate on his motion asking the House to oppose the trans  Alaska pipeline system - with its tanker rout as the second stage-"because of the ecological dangers posed by this project to the people, towns and cities of British Columbia and the national resources of Canada's western seas and coasts." The motion. urges that the government "immediately institute an independent economical and ecological feasibility study of alternative routes." Under House rules it does not come to a vote. Mr. Baldwin complained that the opposition was unable to get answers "from this slippery end devious government" while cabinet ministers make conflicting statements about the tanker route and the Mackenzie Valley alternative. He called on the government to take the initiative in getting an international agreement on safety of oil shipments. One collision of a supertanker could turn the British Columbia waters into a dead sea. He was "thoroughly and completely opposed" to a pipeline anywhere in Canada until it was sure that it could be built with a "minimum of damage." " That assured, the Mackenzie Valley route would be all right. SHOE REPAIRS ?

The regulation established standards of scholastic status based on the number of years of schooling teachers received.
