Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta i - THI LtTHBRIDG! HIRAID - Wednesday, March 17, 1971 Growing chorus of concern in United States oyer pipeline project WASHINGTON (CP) - Forty - five congressmen joined today the growing chorus of concern over plans to construct an oil pipeline across Alaska. I The congressmen asked in a letter to Interior Secretary Rogers Morton . to delay granting i permission for the pipeline until protection for the wilderness areas and the inhabitants of the ctate is fully guaranteed. Canada's stand outlined in house OTTAWA (CP) - An oil pipeline along the Mackenzie Valley will be built only if it is in Canadian interests, Prime Minister Trudeau told the Commons Tuesday. He said there is no conflict in that statement and what Northern Development Minister Chretien and Energy Minister J. J. Greene have been telling U.S. oil interests. He was questioned on the statements of the "give-away twins" by New Democrat Leader T. C. Douglas, who quoted Mr. Chretien as saying in Dallas, Tex., last week that a pipeline route along the Mackenzie "could and would be found." Mr. Trudeau noted that the minister prefaced his remark by saying "if it is desirable." Jt would be desirable only if the environment would not suffer, said the prime minister. Mr. Chretien said any pipeline would have to follow guides announced last summer. These in- cluded safeguards for the ecology, that the pipeline would be a common carrier, and that native northerners would be employed. INVESTMENT QUERY Paul Yewchuk (PC - Athabasca) asked whether there are plans for Canadian investors to put money into a line if it is built. Mr. Trudeau said there are no specific plans now. Mr. Chretien said one more summer of ecological research is necessary to gain required information about the environmental effects of a northern pipeline. The government and industry had been researching the problem since 1968. If it was possible to put men on the moon, it would be possible to build a safe Arctic pipeline. Mr. Chretien was replying to David Lewis (NDP-York South). Plans for,the 800-mile pipeline to carry oil from the North Slope to the port of Valdez have been put forward by seven oil companies. Morton so far has deferred a decision pending further studies by the interior department and the companies. Earlier this week, the environmental protection agency suggested a thorough study of a possible alternative route through Canada. It added that the trans - Alaska route may cause environmental degradation and pollution. While applauding recent statements by Morton urging further study, the congressmen said environmental problems related to the pipeline have not been adequately dealt with. They said they believe the only "sensible solution" to the issue would have to include as-s u r a n c e that environmental No increase in beef exports WASHINGTON (Reuter) -The agriculture department announced here there would be no increase this year in total imports of beef into the United States. Agriculture Secre t a r y Clifford Hardin said overseas suppliers, of which Australia and New Zealand are by far the largest, had agreed to continue voluntary restraints on the quantities of beef they shio to the U.S. damage would be held to an absolute minimum and "the right of the human beings in its path are fully protected." "This could take five, 10, 20 or more years. But the fact that environmental sciences now are only in their infant state, and they are likely to develop significantly in the future, is ah additional argument for its postponement." Text of the letter was released by Representative Les Aspen (Dem. Wis.). Other signers mcluded possible Democratic presidential candidates: Senators George McGovem of South Dakota, Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, Fred Harris of Oklahoma and William Prox-mire of Wisconsin. The letter to Morton said the conclusion of the interior de- partment's impact statement was "flatly contradicted "by various reports and memos from other interior department officials." The impact statement, issued some time ago, said environmental dangers of the pipeline were tolerable in view of the urgent need by the U.S. for en* ergy. Aspen said "this letter is an attempt to focus congressional and public attention-as well as the interior department's-on the inadequacies of the pipeline proposal as it now stands." He added, "the impact statement made evident that the oil companies have been beard from in a powerful way-it now is time that others are beard from also."
