Wilderness Group Launches Protest On Coal Search CALGARY (CP) The Al- berta Wilderness Association has launched a protest against a search for coal that it claims poses a threat to a scenic sec- tion of -mountains 50 miles southwest of here. President Floyd Stromstedt said here that Alberta Coal Ltd., is working in the Highwood Pass area, a few miles above where Storm and other creeks join to form the Highwood Riv- er. "Anyone who has seen the Highwood Pass1, he said in an interview, "must appreciate its great scenic value as well as Us importance as a prime sum- mer range for wildlife. "Those values will not be worth a plugged nickel if indus- trial operations are allowed in there." The people of Alberta had made monumental sacrifices of their natural heritage in the last 25 years in the name of progress. "There are roads virtually everywhere throughout our for- ested areas, mostly leading to industrial activity of some sort. All of this disturbance has a drastic effect on watersheds, scenery and fish and wildlife. 'Let there be no further dis- turbance of our fast-disappear- ing wilderness areas. The High- wood Pass is one place our as- sociation is not prepared to sac- rifice. There isn't enough coal in all Canada to make that sac- rifice worthwhile. "Every major watershed in Alberta is being sacrificed to industry the Crowsnest, Old- man, Livingstone, Highwood, Kananaskis, Bow, Burnt River, Panther, Red Deer, Bighorn, Clearwater, North Saskatche- wan, Athabasca, Smokey, Peace and others. "We must let the.government know that the people ot Alberta are steadily'learning more of how our land is being sacrific- ed and they are getting fight- ing mad. We must everlast- ingly keep pounding at our pre- mier and his responsible minis- ters." Mr. Stromstedt said industry never gives up as long as dol- lars are hidden under the dwind- ling wilderness.
