Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, May 7, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGI HERALD 9 Pollution-fighting vessels possible for Pacific Coast VANCOUVER (CP) The ministry of transport is con- sidering a proposal that in- volves spending about mil- lion on specialized pollution- fighting vessels to increase its capability to deal with oil spills off the British Columbia coast, an official says. Herb Buchanan, regional di- rector of marine services, said the three vessels would be sta- tioned at three strategic cen- tres on the coast. The proposal, one of several being considered by the MOT, calls for the vessels to be post- ed in Prince Bupert, at a port on northern Vancouver Island, and at either Vancouver or Vic- toria. The vessels would be kept In constant readiness for any em- ergency and would be used for no other purpose. Another proposal under con- sideration is to have barges for the job, instead of self-powered vessels. Private towing com- panies would tow the barges to the scene of an emergency. Mr. Buchanan said this plan would cost about half as much as the first proposal. Annual operating and maintenance costs for either plan would be about million. Another option being consid- ered, Buchanan said, is to turn the entire job over to commer- cial contractors. The proposals were among nine suggested to the MOT in response to a call for tenders for anti-pollution equipment t be kept in special depots alon the coast. MOT officials will come to B.C. from Ottawa before the end of the month to study the proposals. Emphasis has been placed on adopting a plan because of the incident in January at Alert Bay off the north tip of Van couver Island, when the freighter Irish Stardust hi rocks, resulting in the eveniua loss of 342 tons of bunker oi which polluted beaches. The MOT currently has 000 in anti-pollution eqiripmen stationed on the north coast a Prince Rupert Vancouver and and south Victoria. Official Languages Act may split Conservatives By STEWART MacLEOD OTTAWS (CP) Con- servative Leader Robert Stanfield has said he doesn't ex- pect any difficulty in presenting a united party front in reaffir- ming the principles of the Offi- cial Languages he may not be successful. Several Conservative MPs are reported to be differing it ap- pears highly unlikely that for- mer leader John Diefenbaker will suddenly reaffirm the prin- ciples of the act he opposed in 1969. Kis basic argument, that the act requires a constitutional amendment, remains un- changed Mr Stanfield is said to be deeply concerned about any Something Is Happening At KNU10K Great Zap The Prices Sale On KEM Quality Paints SUPER KEM-TONE LATEX FLAT PAINT Reg. 9.79.

It could revive the heat of 1969, when 17 Con- servatives opposed the act. MANY ANNOYED Many Conservatives are an- noyed at Prime Minister Trudeau for bringing the act back to Parliament for reaffir- mation. Once an act has been passed, they argue, there is no need to reaffirm it. They see it as a deliberate attempt by the government to try to embarrass the Conservatives. And Mr. Stanfield is deter- mined to avoid this, party sources say. The matter has already been discussed at one Conservative caucus when he appealed for united support. Doubts were ex- pressed by several MPs and it was agreed to bnng it before caucus again. In the meantime, Mr. Stanfield is reported to have talked privately with the MPs who are not enthusiastic j about the legislation. Whatever success he may have had generally, he is un- likely to alter the argument put forward by Mr. Diefenbaker uhen he opposed the measure. The former prime minister, presenting his case on questions of law, said the act required a constitutional amendment If it was allowed to become law without such an amendment, the rights rf any group could be taken away in future by a mere statute SEES DANGERS Far from protecting a par- ticular language group, he said, the precedent created potential dangers for any such group m the future. "I am not going to have the constitution waylaid by a prime minister trying to take a short- he argued Sources say he hasn't changed his since he doesn't attend caucus, he is un- likely to be swayed by new party initiatives. The constitutional aspects of the Official Languages Act will come before the Supreme Court of Canada this fall in an action initiated by Mayor Leonard Jones of Moncton. He has challenged the right of New Brunswick to create a bill ngual province, and after losing his case in the province, he is taking it to the Supreme Court Mr. Diefenbaker apparently feels the court should make a decision before Parliament is called upon to reaffirm the Offi- cial Languages Act. Party sources predict hectic efforts to avoid a split before the reaffirmation resolution comes to Parliament in the nesr: few weeks. But they are pessi- mistic about every Conservative voting for it. Alberta to invest money EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government intends to establish a consolidated invest- ment fund using the funds in dozens of provincial govern- ment accounts to earn an esti- mated S5 million more a year, provincial treasurer Gordon Miniely has told the legisla- ture Mr. Miniely introduced a bill which would allow the pooling of cash into one large invest- ment fund, although bookkeep- ing on each account would re- main separate. Mr. Mimely said outside the legislature that the fund could average between and million. Because it is easier to obtain a higher rate of interest on in v e s t m e nts from larger amounts, the pooling arrange- ment could allow the province to receive one half to one per cent more interest than now is paid on t he s eparate funds, he said. Under changes to the Finan- cial Administration Act, Mr. Miniely said extra cash that may be available in accounts such as the general revenue fund, the school foundation program and the hospital ser- vices account would be pooled. The uwestment fund would be liquid enough so that any ac- count requiring its cash back immediately could be accom- modated.
