Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Ontario 'progressing9 with recognition of need for EDMONTON (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed said Thursday Ontario has recognized that there should be a minimum increase of 50 per cent in western crude oil prices and "that in itself is some progress." The premier told the legislature that Canadians shouldn't be surprised that Ontario does not want the price to go higher than 96 when the price freeze expires at the end of March because that would threaten the status quo of Ontario being the manufacturing centre in Canada. Ontario Energy Minister Darcy McKeough said this week that Ontario can live with the price providing there is not another mxrease for two years. He called on the federal government to intervene if Alberta and Saskatchewan attempt to get the international price for their oil, about a barrel. Western oil prices have been frozen at about a barrel since September. 'Mr. Lougheed, who has yet to say the price Alberta will charge effective April 1 as negotiations continue with Ottawa, again refused comment on the new price. "When one talks about world prices it is a very complex he told Art Dixon (SC Calgary "There are meetings going on all over the world today on pricing." While not' mentioning specific prices, Mr. Lougheed reaffirmed many previous commitments to get fair value for depleting natural resources such as oil and natural gas. Meetings have been held between Alberta and Ontario about oil prices and more are expected. "But we do not anticipate that they would want to do anything but keep the status quo and we obviously are taking the position that we shouldn't be involved in a position of selling a depleting natural resource below Mr. Lougheed said. "They would be delighted to maintain the status quo in Canada of having a substantially higher per-capita income in that province that exists here in Alberta, have over 50 per cent of the manufacturing in Canada while we have about four per cent, and then continue to get cheap oil and cheap natural gas from the province of Alberta." Mr. McKeough, in the Ontario legislature Wednesday, warned that the new oil price must not price become "the first step on the rung of a ladder that will automatically carry us on up to whatever the world monopoly price might be." If we escalate the price of petroleum to current world levels, we will have a rich Alberta largely at the expense of the rest of Canada." The Lettibrtdge Herald VOL.

The four sites were not specified. But the complex will occupy about a section of land so will be in a rural area.
