H. Gatenby ry-Treasurer County ol Vukan No. 5 Vulcan. Alberla .48S.2241 M deleted Polymer Corp. from th companies and agencies listed in the schedule to the act gov- erning Crown corporations and from the Financial Adminis- tration Act which sets financial reporting procedures for such agencies. Eight Conservatives and two NDP committee members joined to over-ride Liberal sup- port for the item by a vote of 10 to 7. Air. Nielsen argued that the sale of Polymer to the CBC, a government-created body that is supposed to encourage Cana- dian investment in the country's economy, could not be legal un- til the spending item had been passed. SALE FRUSTRATED? Mr. Hose asked W. A. Ken- nett of the finance department whether a defeat on the item would "frustrate" the sale, an- nounced by the government last umer for on r mount between 62 and 572 milion. Mr. Kennett, while saying this equired a legal opinion, said is understanding was that the ale had taken place properly under the powers of the CDC and the sale is legal.' Mr. Nielsen, a lawyer, an- wered the same question by ayiug: "I think the answer's got to to have grown into "just the re- verse" of what it was supposet to be when first suggested b the Liberals under Lester Pear son. Originally it was supposed 1 improve "Canadian content" i ttie economy, buying equity ir industries and helping foste Canadian Investments in thos areas foreign investmen is dominant. THROWN TO WOLVES The Polymer sale was a "ho- rid example" of what the CDC should not be doing. "They took a successful Crown corporation and threw it to the wolves." Ca- adian people would lose the they once had through olymer. How was the purchase paid >r, Mr. Rose asked. By CDC turning over CDC tares to the government, Mr. ennett said. The government as still the sole investor in the DC and would remain so until he CDC made a public share ffcring. Mr. Rose asked where the Militants 'hurting' reserve benefit of CDC shares would est once the corporation makes uch an offering. Mr. Kennett said this would depend on the izc of the offering. The government was com- mitted to invest million In he CDC to provide capital tool. If CDC made a share of- ering for million, then here would be a 60-50 sharing wtween the government and he public investors He had no idea what size offering the CDC lad in mind. Was there any outside offer for Polymer or was it a sale made through "a backroom Mr Hose said. NO PUBLIC OFFER There was no public offer to sell Polymer, Mr. Kennett re- plied. Mr. Rose then asked how much public money has been put into Polymer over the years and Mr. Kennett replied that the "book value'" million. WOUNDED KNEE, S.D. federal government occupation of the village of Wounded Knee by militant members of the American In- dian Movement (A.I.M.) is hurting the entire Pine Ridge reserve. But Indian leaders at the tiny southwestern South Dakota hamlet say the government Is only attempting to gain sympa- thy. Interior department spokes- man James Harpster said Tues- day in nearby Pine Ridge the American Red Cross and ths bureau of Indian afairs are providing services to 244 Sioiuz Indian refugees, many of them from Wounded Knee. He said the occupation also Is costing the Oglala Sioux tribe a day due to delays In federal home-building programs and in tribal action involving "several million dollars.' Another Interior official said 387 proposed new homes were delayed because of the occupa- tion, but under questioning changed that to number scheduled to be built at Wounded Knee. No gunfire or other disturb- ances were reported Tuesday at Wounded Knee or Pine Ridge as both sides waited for answers to about their latest proposals for ending the three-week conflict.

Mayor Leo Boisyert Councillors Lloyd Miller The opposition MPs gave tha CDC's operations a rough ride. Mr. Rose, after hearing from Mr. Kennett that the "book 'alue" of Polymer Corp. at the ime of tire sale was estimated at million, said this just confirmed his opinion that Poly- mer was "thrown to the wolves.1 CLAIM ?IP-OFF Mr. Nielsen also said that, since the CDC in future would x selling shares on the market, the Polymer profit that once had benefitted all Canadians now would only do so to those with enough money to buy CDC shares. He called it a form of "corporate rip-off by the CDC."

It has been a con- sistent profit-maker during the years since the war. While aiming their main By JOE DUPUIS TORONTO (CP) The On- tario government Tuesday un- veiled a low-budget program for the new session of the legisla- ture to control land-use, reform and courts and fight organized crime. None of the programs out- lined in the 21-page speech from the throne to open the third ses- sion of the 29th legislature would add much to the prov- ince's million deficit, Pre- mier William Davis told reporters. The only real additional spending would occur in propos- als to buy up land to preserve one million acres of the Niag- ara Escarpment for recrea- tional purposes, and to create a 75-mile long grean belt and transportation corridor around Toronto from Dundas on the west to Oshawa 'in the east. The speech, read by Lt.-Gov. W. Ross Macdomald, made only brief reference to tho economy, predicting an improvement in job opportunities in 1973. Mr. Davis's Progressive Con- servatives hold 76 of the 117 leg- islature seats, the Liberals 22 and the New Democratic Party Among the proposals to streamline courts was one to abolish grand juries and give legal clerks the authority to deal with minor traffic offenses, rather than judges. There was also a promise of training courses for justices of the peace. Pattern "let and and they will be a byelcdion Granum, Alberta on Calgary Power Ltd. at tha ad- dress as above set forth.

Four candidates are running in a byeleclion Wednesday to (ill a vacancy created earlier by the resignation Dec. 30 from council of Gordon Cook, who mived from the community. After Wednesday's byelec- tion, .the strength of council would be left at four, requiring another byelection because the next regular election will not be until the fall of 1974. The date for the next byelec- iton will be decided by the new council. 19. WILL END STRIKE The new session opened today at 2 p.m. EST with a bill from Mr. Davis to force compulsory arbitration to settle the pro- longed strike of elevator work- ers. Liberal Leader Robert Nixon said the throne speech indicated the government "didn't learn the lessons of the two byelec- tions." Liberals won both bye- lections last Thursday, Marga- luauttu SlublTc ret Campbell, taking Toronto of an Interest In Ven-lst.- George and Jack Riddell vmning Huron. Ian Deans, NDP deputy eader, described the throne speech as restatement cf old wlicies." NDP Leader Stephen is vacationing with lus punch at the Liberal govern- ment's decision to sell Polymer to the CDC, the opposition MPs took some broad swipes at the way the CDC has operated so far. They were particularly aroused about possible conflict of interest In the purchase by the CDC, money, of turetek International Ltd. Mr. Nielsen called it one cf the CDC actions that has "been ROLLS BLOCK ROAD SHREWSBURY, England (AP) A highway here was blocked for an hour Monday by 10 tons of toilet rolls.

President of Venturelek Is Jeremy Kendall whose father, Douglas Kendall, is a member of the CDC's 17-man board ot directors and a former Ventiire- tck official. CDC paid mil- lion for 35 per cent of Venture- tek's shares. RISKS CAPITAL Venluretek is a company that puts up risk capital. One of the operations on which it ventured money, and where losses were sustained, Is Hermes Elec- tronics Ltd. cf Halifax. The sen- ior Kendall is president of Her- nes. Mr. Kennett, although he hac not been present at the CDC meetings when the decision was made to invest in Vcnlurclek said he had investigated the sit- uation. It became an issue in the campaign for the Oct. 3C federal election. Mr, Kendall had declared all of his financial interests in ad family. The government proposed, ot ie end of the speech, to set up a royal commission to in- vestigate criminal aspects of the lathing and plastering trades. The proposal brought n shout from Dr. Morton Shulman High Park) of 'finally, two years late." Dr. Shulman has been trying for two years to convince the government of the need to in- vestigate violence In the con- struction trades where there have been long, costly strikes, bitter inter-union jurisdiction al fights and some suspected sabo- tage on construction projects. Other crime-busting proposals were for a special RCMP-mu- nicipal police force to deal wilh trafficking in hard drugs, and new and better training and communications facilities for police. Croivn iirm suggested for Suffield EDMONTON CCP) Alberta should form a crown tion to develop natural gas re- serves in Suffield area, pro- vincial NDP leader Grant Not- Icy said today. In a prepared release, Mr. Notley rejected private develop- mait of the area 30 miles north of Medicine Hat. "Why should we turn the de- velopment over to private conv panies after we spend two and a half million dollars of public money to prove the reserves Mr. Notley said a Joint pub- lic-privato venture would in- volve profit sharing and a sub- sequent return to provin- cial taxpayers. A well-managed crown cor- poration, Ire said, would return million more to Albertans than either private or joint ven- ture operations. The Alberta government an- nounced last week it will spend million to prove natural gas reserves in the mile region which now is used for military training by British troops.
