Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 1HE IFIHBRIDGE HERAID TSurlclay, March 16, 1972 Round up Egg marketing board bank loan guaranteed by govt. tj EDMONTON (CP) A 000 bank loan by the Allwrla E g g and Fowl Marketing Board will be guaranteed by tlte Alberta government, Pro- v i n c i a 1 Ti-easurer Gordon Miniely announced Wednesday. The money will be used to buy eggs lhat are surplus to the requirements of the mar- ket, he said in a prepared re- lease. The board will sell the eggs to a processor at a new shell weight price arrange- ment. Agriculture Minister Hugh Horner said the government move will provide a stable market for commercial eggs, enable producers to receive a fair return and provide a mar- ket for eggs not suitable for table trade. POLLUTION REPORT Alberta's new environment department tabled its first an- nual report in the legislature Wednesday, on paper lhat had been recycled. Bill Yurko, environment min- ister, said that to his knowl- edge the report was unprec- edented In Canada and the world. The department, established last April, was Canada's lirst to be charged with the full-time responsibility for cleaning up pollu 1 1 o n damage, laws and monitoring and water against he said. The report showed enforcing land, air pollution an creased public education Trudeau invited to visit China OTTAWA (CP) The Chinese People's Kepublic has officially invited Prime Minister Trudeau to visit China. Mr. Trudeau, if his govern- ment is re-elected, is considered likely to accept. The new Chinese ambassador here. Yao Kuang, delivered Pe- king's invitation through Exter- nal Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp when he paid a courtesy cail on Mr. Sharp Monday. The external affairs minister told Mr. Yao he was sure Mr. Trudeau would be pleased to ac- cept, and he later conveyed the invitation to Mr. Trudeau. No dates were mentioned by either side. Mr. Yao said Chinese Premier Chou En-lai would like the prime minister to maie the trip at a "mutually convenient time." WILL MEET PM Mr. Yao is expected to reiter- ate the invitation when he meets the prime minister. No date has been set for the meet- ing. The invitation to Mr. Trudeau lias been tentative for more than eight months, since Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin's trip to Peking early last summer. Premier Chou, in a talk with Mr, Pepin. asked about the prime minister and recalled lhat he had visited China in 1960. "He Is a great Mr. Pepin replied. "He has been here in the past and I am quite sure he will want to come back in the future." "Arid we are ready to wel- come his replied Premier Chou, adding, however, that the timing of a visit "may be a bit later because we have still some other work to do at home now." SPEAKS WARMLY The premier went on: "But of all the countries with i which we have newly-estab-1 lished diplomatic relations we would of course want to invite first of all your prime minister because your country was of the first to establish diplomatic re- lations with us in recent years." Canada's recognition of the Peking regime Oct. 13, 1970, started a series of similar moves by other countries, and helped pave the way for main- land China's admission to the United Nations last October. Sources close to Mr. Trudeau say there is a "high probabil- ity" the prime minister will take Peking up on its invitation if he is returned to office in the federal election widely expected to be held iu June. However, they declined to speculate on whether the jour- ney might take place this year, Apart from President Nixon's scheduled visit to Ottawa next month, the prime minister's of- ficial calendar is clear in re- spect both to foreign travel and the entertainment of foreign heads-of-government here. Tivo charged ivith murder CALGARY (CP1 Lynda Rose Gardippie, and Lynda Yellow Fly, 26, both of the Cal- gary area, were to appear in court today on charges of non- capital murder. The charges were laid Wed- nesday after police found the body of Genevieve Gardippia, 33, in an apartment in the southeast area of the city.

"in- and awareness" of pollution and that 162 complaints had been received on nir pollution, the majority from Edmonton res- idents. The complaints resulted in 110 investigations by the de- partment, the report said. The department is based on a philosophy of making pollu- ters pay for cleaning up situa- tions that they create, Mr, Yurko said. TV DEBUT It was lights, cameras nnd ots of action in the Alberta legislature Wednesday. Three color television cam- eras were in the chamber to record live, for (he first time, the regular busines of the 75- scat house. Two of the cameras were on the chamber floor and the oth- er was in one of the public galleries for the one-hour live broadcast by CFRN Edmonton CFCN Calgary and CFC.N Lelhbridge. Members on both sides of the house, a n x i o u s to show their constituents they were being active and conscientious public representatives, took full ad vantage of the occasion. As many as seven MLAs jumped up at one time to fire questions at the other side the House, and Speaker Gerry Amerongen had trouble keep ing track of them. The lighting in the high domed legislature was mented by about a dozen brigh television lights and there wen audible sighs of relief when they were extinguished at the end of the broadcast. Provision for live television coverage was made by the leg- islature just last Thursday, ft had been planned by Premier Peter Lougheed long before his Progressive Conservatives took over the reins of government in an election last fall. For reporters who must rely on the printed word to reach an audience, the relaxed coverage rules have had a fringe benefit. Tape recorders now may be taken into the house for note- taking purposes West development scheme promised ASKS TRICKY' QUESTION Afler saying she will be eighteen June 25, Roxanne Shank of Ottawa asks Prime Minister Trudeau if she will be able to vole in the next federal election.

(CP Wirepholo) Homer clash over hog plant promoter rumor Court told of discussions leading to kidnapping plot CRANBROOK, B.C. (CP) The brother-in-law of accused kidnapper Earl Kitchener Ben- nett testified in British Colum- bia Supreme Court Wednesday that Bennett told him he was "the only one with all the an- swers" to the disappearance of a Kimberley, B.C. youth in July, 1969. The kidnapped youth, Philip Porter, then 15, disappeared while running an errand for his mother and his family re- ceived demands for ransom. Efforts by police to find Philip have been fruitless.

The minister said that while there are some serious road locks" that must be overcome the hog plant can go into peration, his department was nvestigating the whde situa- on. He did not say what the oadblocks were. In an interview later, Mr. 'otley said he learned from omeone heard directly from the hog plant prbmoler, 'ernando Rieafort, that tiie Philippines government within the last five years repossessed ils share of a project similar to the one proposed for south, era Alberta, lie sai'I the name- of the source of information was confidential. Mr. Notley said the word "re- possessed" decs not necessarily imply there was anything ille- gal about the Philippines pro- ject. He said the Alberta govern- ment must determine the se- curity of the Hicafort proposal. Uecause of the effect tiro plan! would have on the Alberta mar- ket, he said. Cue government must ensure that markets exist for the product the plant in- tends to produce. "If this market doesn't exist and encourage the in- creased production frf hogs for this plant, those hogs will be dumped on the local market, depressing prices and forcing some small hog producers out of business." OTTAWA (CP) The govern- ment's forthcoming national in- dustrial policy will include plans for economic development of tho West, Labor Minister Martin O'C'onnell told the Commons Wednesday. "The industrialization which has been available to Ccnlral Canada and increasingly the concern of the Atlantic develop- ment strategy, wilt be available in Western Canada." The Toronto minister was speaking during a one-day de- bate on a Conservative motion urging the government to expe- dite such services as pension unemployment insurance arid post office deliveries. The mo- tion did not come to a vote. He said "a good deal of the forward trend hi a new in- dustrial strategy for this coun- try will be toward developing higher levels of economic activ- ity in tne West." ;It is in a. sense a decentrali zation of industrial activity in the search for the just society in terms of quality of life and in terms of national unity." Industry Minister Jean-Luc Pepin told a news conference Monday the government plan to atmour-e an industrial stra egy by fall. THUONB SPEECH PROMTSE The policy was promised in the ttirone speech Feb. 17 open the current session of Par liament.

He observed that Vancouver las been designated as head- quarters of the Canada Develop- ment Corp., the investment xxly set up last year to direct ;ovenimcnt and private funds nto development. Western development is inked with new trade ties with Pacific countries, Mr. O'Coraiell snid. The Liberal government, ex- to call a general election soon, currently holds 25 of the 68 constituencies in the four western provinces, having lost two in byelectibns. Mr. O'Comiell said new stress on the West reflects continuing government concern with jus- tice for all groups and regions, despite its less frequent refer- ences to the just society.
