Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD-Wadnasday, March Trudeau reiterates no plans for Alberta oil sands project OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau reiterated Tuesday that the government has no plans for a project to develop the vast northern Alberta oil sands. Fielding a series of opposition questions in the Commons, he said Supply Minister Jean Pierre Goyer has been giving his personal views in-speeches favoring a massive oil sands! de- velopment plan. Mr. Goyer was not outlining government policy, he told Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield. Energy policies were set out by himself and Energy Minister Donald Macdonald. Mr. Stanfield said Mr. Macdonald has indicated that a cabinet decision has been made on how the oil sands should be developed: Mr. Goyer had indicated that the question was still open. Mr. Trudeau said he appre- ciated Mr. Stanfield's interest but wanted to "assure the ner- Coming to HUT Stop at the..

He said he has authorized Mr. Goyer to look into the project on his own and the minister may continue to make speeches. Policy decisions would be outlined by Mr. Macdonald, however. Mr. Goyer made his latest pitch Monday for a huge development project involving 20 oil extraction plants costing billion. Huge foreign investment would be required and debts would be repaid in oil rather than cash, he proposed. A Canadian-owned holding corporation would run the project. Mr. Trudeau asked opposition members to keep "red herrings" out of the issue, especially in light of the energy 'conference planned today in Ottawa. Mr. Trudeau and the 10 premiers are to meet for another effort to work out national crude prices that satisfy Alberta-and Saskatchewan. T. C. Douglas (NDP-Na- naimo-Cowichan-The Islands) suggested that Mr. Macdonald, not Mr. Goyer, should be investigating the project if the government is interested in it. Mr. Trudeau said Mr. Goyer can speak to "any audience that wants to listen." Minutes later, Mr. Goyer exchanged jibes with Eldon Woolliams North) and Paul Hellyer, a former Liberal cabinet minister who now is a Conservative front-bencher. Mr. Hellyer (Toronto first asked whether Mr. Trudeau discussed the oil sands over lunch with Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed Monday. Or was it government policy "to play one of his ministers off against another in The prime minister, grinning broadly, tried to reply but was shouted down by the Conservatives. He did not reply when Commons Speaker Lucien Lamoureux had restored order. Mr. Woolliams then asked whether Mr. Goyer had sub- mitted the text of his speech for approval by Mr. Trudeau before delivering it. Mr. Goyer replied that he did not submit all the details but found Calgarians more than his Conservative critics. Mr. Woolliams repeated his question and elicited this retort from the minister: Pro Hardware Regina... Electrikbroom Delivers a cleaning punch equal to the toughest vacuuming job!

Rising on a question of privilege, Mr. Woolliams paraphrased poet Robert Burns, saying, "I wish God had given us the gift to see ourselves as others see us." "The most simple minister sitting over there is the former solicitor-general. His record speaks for itself throughout the country." Mr. Goyer's term as solicitor-general, from December, 1970, to November, 1972, included problems with the penitentiary system. Former prime minister John Diefenbaker intervened to say the cabinet solidarity issue was just a shell game played by Mr. Trudeau. Mr. Goyer replied: "I think that the right honorable member knew nothing about cabinet solidarity until today." Outside the House, Mr. Goyer acknowledged that his proposal does not represent government policy "which is not yet decided." However, he said oil sands development "by its very magnitude" has to involve more than one government department. In addition to the energy de- partment and his own depart- ment, there was a role for in- dustry, trade and commerce, "and Albertans have to decide through their provincial governments if they want what could be one of the most important projects in the world." Mr. Goyer said Quebec has embarked on a hydroelectric development on James Bay so why cannot Al- berta have a oil sands project? Mr. Macdonald has doubts on the proposal but is open- minded, he said. "I'm not urging that we just jump in and accept this, I'm calling for serious study and a cost-benefit analysis." Air travel price hike blocked MONTREUX, Switzerland (Reuter) The world's major airlines failed Tuesday to reach full agreement on a further round of passenger and cargo fare increases of between three and four per cent after a week of talks. A spokesman for the Inter- national Air Transport Associ- ation (IATA) said a handful of companies are blocking the in- creases, recommended to come into effect June 1. "We now are giving these airlines time to think about their he added. lATA's 113 of which are at the Montreux already raised fares by 13 per cent this year because of soaring fuel costs. Lafct Friday, IATA announced increases of four to five per cent in Atlantic cargo tariffs. The spokesman said Tuesday the full round of increases involving Amer- ican. Pacific.

Canadians get food poisoning Shades of Typhoid Mary OTTAWA (CP) The heyday of Typhoid Mary is over, but the infamous cook may have her modern-day counterparts in kitchens throughout the country, judging by the estimated Canadians who get food poisoning every year. Typhoid Mary was a New York cook who was found to be responsible in the early 1900s for seven epidemics of typhoid fever, caused by a salmonella infection associated with food poisoning. To keep others like her out of the kitchen, the federal health -protection branch is sponsoring a three-day conference here April 3-5 for professionals in the food .services dieticians and health inspectors. Mishandled food in restau- rants and cafeterias is respon- sible for most food poisoning, officials say. For instance, Typhoid Mary didn't wash her hands often enough to keep her salmonella germs from spreading. With rare exceptions usually associated with the deadly botulism bacteria people die from food poisoning, says Dr. Ewen Todd of the health protection branch's food research laboratories. However, the symptoms such as nausea, diarrhea and severe stomach cramps "can make you feel like you're at death's door." he said in an interview. Moreover, the loss of work and wages is substantial, to say nothing of medical costs for people who spend 15 days or more in hospital recovering from food poisoning caused by one of the salmonella strains, said Dr. Todd. Efforts to contain food poisoning, however, are partly stymied by incredibly poor reporting of cases. Officials here and in other countries estimate that less than one per cent of often caused by contaminated meat or are reported through a central registry. For instance, Statistics Cah- ada each year" reports between and incidents of food poisoning of various kinds, but health officials believe the actual number may be as high as said Dr. Todd. In most cases, the victims don't report their illnesses, or doctors don't make complete tests or laboratories fail to de- tect the organism or toxin, he said. Gas price review begins OTTAWA (CP) The'Na- tional Energy Board Tuesday began a review of prices for natural gas exported to the United States. Little argument is expected on whether prices should go up. It is only a question of how much. More than 30 corporations and three provincial govern-, ments are scheduled to make presentations before NEB commissioner C. G, Edge. Energy board regulations provide that export licences are subject to review and any, recommendation by the NEB for a change in prices would, be submitted to cabinet for approval. A consultant commissioned by two producer companies was the first witness and his assessment of prices would mean roughly tripling the price of gas delivered to Prairie border points. Radford Schantz, a specialist on energy matters and a vice-president of Foster Associates Inc., Washington, he does not believe the price of Canadian natural gas should be compared with. U.S. prices. He said it would be better to compare it with alternative liquid natural gas, electricity and coal. Mr. Schantz was commis- sioned by Chevron Standard Ltd. and Shell Canada Ltd. One result of higher prices would be be a change in the pattern of sales. As the price goes up, natural gas will be priced out of the "boiler fuel" means such users as electric utilities and steel companies. These large volume users are concerned primarily with cost per unit of heat while residential and commercial users attach which they are willing to pay convenience, cleanliness and versatility factors. The current cost of Canadian gas delivered to Prairie border points is in tlie range of 30 to 35 cents per thousand cubic feet. To price natural gas competitively with "substrtutSbleA't the would mean roughly tripling this price, Mr. Schantz said. The result for U.S. residential users in the midwest and California would be a price in the vicinity of per thousand cubic feet.
