Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, May 2, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 43 B.C. railway project throivn into doubt This Fernie catskmner starred clearing the way last week for the Koctenay and Elk Rail- way line from Eiko to the U.S. border. But B.C. Premier Dave Barrett slammed the doors on the project Saturday when he announced there was no way Ihe government was going to give the railway permission to cross crown lands. Most of the 26-mile route to the U.S. is through B.C. government lands. Bruce Pepper, president of Crows Nest Industries Ltd., parent company of the railway, said Monday he didn't know what steps would be taken next. He hadn't received anything official from the government turning down his application for permission to cross crown lands. Construction had to start before May 1, he said, to meet requirements of a B.C. incorporation permit. Today Publications Rapeseed plant site to remain SEXSMTTH, Alta. (CP) Terry Nugent, president of Northern Alberta Rapeseed Pro- cessors Ltd., told a meeting of more than 300 farmers here the location of his company's pro- posed rapeseed processing plant would remain in Sex- smith, about 25 miles north' of Grande Prairie, on the basis of a feasibility study which origin- ally determined it would be best located here. The proposed plant has drawn criticism from rapeseed growers near Spirit River, Fair- view and Rycroft in the Peace District, who claim the million Sexsmith plant vrll not be central to Peace area grow- ers Mr. Nugent said Sexsmith is connected to export markets via rail to Vancouver and add- ed his company's personnel would rather live in Sexsmith. A group headed by Dr. Moroz Woromik, president of the Fair- view Chamber of Commerce, Friday proposed an alterna- tive, million for the Fair- view-Peace River district. ians States amount of letter to Xew By WILLIAM BOHDERS IT Pinawa.
