(CP) Dave Barrett, has been taking a hard who line with Ottawa over the Trans- Alaska pipeline controversy, said here Friday night he doesn't want to fight the feder- al government over the place for a coal port in British Co- lumbia. Mr. Barrett said earlier Fri- day, in Nanaimo, B.C., that he looked forward to reading a federal government environ- mental study that recommends Ridley Island, near Prince Ru- pert, B.C., as a good terminus for coal from the rich Sukunka fields. 'If the federal environmental studies prove conclusively that the Prince Rupert location at Ridley Island is good for a coal port, will sit down with Ot- tawa end talk about the roost economical means for shipping the premier told about persons at a a dinner here. plate "But the pre- mier added, "it was the B.C. government that forced these environmental studies." The B.C. government con- ducted its own environmental studies on the placement of a coal port on Howe Sound. That report concluded that a site at Britannia would cause minimal environmental damage. Most of the premier's speech here consisted of his usual view of the government's legi- slative record at the spring ses- sion. However, during the question period he said the provincial five per cent sales tax would not be increased as long as his government is in power. NO END TO TAX "I would dearly love to an- nounce an end to the sales tax, but I don't anticipate doing he said. "However, as long as this government is in office there will not be an in- crease in the sales tax and Child abuse fine boost reports may EDMONTON (CP) A gov- ernment backbencher Friday introduced legislation calling for a fine of up to S500 for per- sons who fail to report suspect- ed cases of child abuse. Cal Lee (PC Calgary Mc- Knight) introduced the amend- ments to the Child Welfare Act. They are expected to become law this spring. The legislation also calls for establishment of a central reg- istry for compiainis to allow the province to crack down on repeated cases of child neglect or battering. Under existing legislation, no penalties are provided for fail- ure to report although it re- quires people such as doctors to report their suspicions. Mr. Lee said outside the leg- islature that the Alberta Medi- cal Association has not yet j given its support to the con- j Calgary cept of a fine but talks are continuing. Another section clears anyone who reports their suspicions from possible legal said providing it as law should help the health and social de- velopment department to im- prove reporting procedures. will earnestly seek ways to eli- minate it." The premier also quipped at suggestions that the party cUn- i-ers he has been attending have cost too much money. "Any time a politician offers you a cheap meal, you're going to get cheap politics along with he said. Mr. Barrett wound up the second leg of his proyiniia tour. On Monday he flies U Prince George, then visits tcr race and Prince Rupert. STATION OPEN AGAIN ANGLESEY, Wales (AP) Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgoger ychwyrn Drobwlll Antysi- liosogogoch is open again.
