Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETH8RIDGE HERAID Wednesday, May 6, 1970 Greene Says No Waffling In Phosphates Action OTTAWA (CP) Resources Minister J. J. Gfeene told the Commons resources committee Tuesday there will bo no waf- fling in the government's inten- tion to eliminate phosphates from detergents by Jan. At the same time he indicated that the final anti-pollution re- suit might not be a complete elimination of phosphate nu- trients from cleimin? subst- ances, but that any allowed phosphate content would be "negligible." J. J. GREENE Policy Firm The committee is studying the proposed Canada Water Act. The government has introduced an amendment that would allow the minister to prohibit the manufacture or import of clean- ing agents or water conditions containing nutrients that bolster the growth of algae and thus rob the water of oxygen. Earlier this year, Mr. Greene announced that manufacturers of cleaning agents would have to reduce the phosphorus pen- toxide content of their products to 20 per cent by weight by Aug. J, 1970. They must remove all of it by Jan. 1, 1972. In the committee Tuesday, Dr. A. T. Prince, directof of the department's inland waters branch, said the 20-per-cent reg- ulation would remove about two-thirds of detergents from the Canadian market, including most major brands. The repeated "cate- gorically and unequivocally" the government's intention of banning APPROACH IMPOSSIBLE He said ha had tried to see if industry could discipline itself with a voluntary reduction but that approach had proved impossible. "Firm and determined ac- tion" was the only way to get results with the companies. If they saw any sign of govern- ment waffling, they would find way to avoid government reg- ulations. He said the companies stated categorically when he an- nounced the phosphate ban that it would be impossible for! them to comply and survive. But all evidence since, he said, stows it is possible and that the companies will succeed in introducing substitutes. Mr. Greeno said Swedish manufacturers have succeeded in reducing phosphate content in detergents to six per level which had little effect on waterways. After the meeting the minister said the government wouli probably be satisfied with level of about four per cent if i were sure industry had done its best. But unless the governmen aimed for zero per cent, Indus' try would try to maintain I higher level. Auto Insurance Codes Differ By THE CANADIAN PRESS Motorists moving from one province to another may face some confusion about automo- bile insurance. Such insurance falls under provincial jurisdiction, and each province seems to have its method of dealing with it. Manitoba's handling of it is ci'eating a stir in that province's legislature. The New Demo- cratic Party has indicated it will introduce an Automobile In- surance Act, which likely would force motorists to join a govern- ment-sponsored plan with pri- vate companies allowed to add supplementary coverage. Both opposition parties have criticized the plan which is sim- ilar to one introduced hi Saskat- chewan in 1946 and still in effect there. Auto insurance is compulsory for drivers older than 21 in three Colum- bia, Nova Scotia and Saskatche- wan. In most other provinces, drivers without insurance must be enrolled in an unsatisfied claims fund for a nominal fee. An amendment passed this year to the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act makes it an offence to drive without insurance. Board Cuts Requirements WASHINGTON (AP) The Federal Reserve Board has cut its margin requirement for buy- ing stock to 63 per cent of the purchase price. It had been 80 per cent. The board also cut the margin requirement for convertibln that can be con- verted into 60 per cent from 60 per cent. Both changes will be effective today. The board cited a sharp re- duction in the use of credit for stock purchases in announcing the change, the first revision since June, 1968. The reduction followed persis- tent reports last week that the New York Stock Exchange had asked the board to make the cut. But at least one problem was the possibility of criticism because the change would make scarce credit more available for stock purchases. Motorists i n Saskatchewan must pay for their yearly gciv e r n m e n t insurance coverage when they buy then1 licence plates. COMPULSORY IN B.C. In British Columbia, motorists must sign a declaration tha they have insurance when they apply for automobile licences. B.C. drivers must have third party liability and accident ben efit coverage to a minimum o At present in Manitoba, driv ers must have liability Insur ance or pay into the unsatis fled judgment fund. Drivers under 21 must have insurance in Newfoundland. For those older, it is not compul- sory. Insurance also is not compul sory in Prince Edward Island But a person involved in an ac- cident and without insurance may have his car seized by po- lice until he has shown proof he is able to meet the cost of dam ages. Insurance in Ontario and New Brunswick is not compulsory But both have unsatisfied judg ment funds uninsuret drivers must Join. In Quebec, motorists under 2 must have insurance. Uninsured drivers older than 21 have their drivers' licences and car plates seized until they repair any ac- cident damages. Then, sue] drivers must show proof of in surance coverage to regain their plates within two years after an accident. Alberta motorists can choose between liability insurance or membership in the unsatisfiet judgment fund for a year.
