Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Gas (leal slill up in air Canada clears Montana bid HAVRE. Monl. (API An Omnha, Neb. natural firm has received approval from the Canadian National Energy Board to transport Montana gas across Canada for delivery to its pipeline system in north- ern Minnesota. The Northern Natural Gas Co. pipeline would tap Tiger Ridge field near Havre. However, whether the Omaha firm will be able to implement its plan to use Mon- tana gas is still to be decided by the U.S. Federal Power Commission. Although an FPC examiner has stated the public interest RECEIVES AWARD Pierre Berlon (left) receives liter- ary awards from Governor-General Roland Michener in Ottawa. stirs controversy REGINA (CP) The Sas- katchewan legislature p r o- rogu'ed after sitting a near-rec- ord 51 days to approve a rec- ord 158 bills, some attracting controversy lasting to the final day. Premier Allan Blakeney's New Democratic Party gov- ernment retrieved1 a key 1371 election promise v.ith one major bill, for a farm land bank, which attracted some of the most severe opposition crit- icism including accusations of "Communism." The land bill provides a fund of million in its initial year to purchase land and rent it to farmers. After five years a tenant has the option to buy it. The 15 member Opposition said the bill would result in a statc-ov.'ncd farm industry and that interest charges would be- come so high that tenant farm- ers would be unable to get out of debt. While Agriculture Minister Jack Messer said the bill is not a final solution but would pro- vide for a better transfer of land, Cy MacDonald stone) called it a "land grab" bill that would turn farmers into sharecroppers. Mr. Messer, speaking prior to third-reading approval, said the bill would provide a base for such programs as income stabilization, diversification, in- creased co-operative ventures and farm management im- provement. The 60-mcmbKr house, which began sitting Feb. 24, also ap- proved closely allipned bills, replacing federal estate and gift taxes, both of which direct- ly affect land bequests and gifts. Tied closely to these was a bill to control foreign owner- ship of Saskatchewan farm land, but which got only secom reading and was referred to a special legislative committee for public hearings. The bill proposes to limit the amount of farm land which a non resident can own. and would allow the government to force non residents who in- herit farm land to sell within a year to a Saskatchewan resi- dent. The Succession Duty Act, ret- roactive to last Jan. 1, exempts estates worth or less, and those worth up to if willed to a spouse or chil- dren.

NEW SUPPLY SOURCE "The Montana gas field re- presents a completely new source of supply for midwest- ern gas consumers." northern vice president H. M. Sampson said recently. "If is a gas pro- ducing area which is likely to see greatly increased gas ex- ploration and development acti- vities because of the access to our pipeline to a major mar- keting area." He said the new gas supply would help ease the tight gas supply situation in Northern's marketing area. In Btitlc, however, George O'Connor of MPC said that while the decision by the Cana- dian government was expected, approval for Northern's project by the FPC would be "wishful thinking."

Favors move EDMONTON (CP) Pre- mier Peter Lougheed said in the legislature he favors exten- sion of Alberta boundaries northward, but stressed the ini- tiative for such a move must come- from residents of The Yukon and Northwest Terri- tories. Mr. Lougheed said there are "considerable advantages for Canada and for Alberta in an alternation of provincial bound- aries." But the initiative must come from the northern people who bad made "the pioneering ef- fort" to settle the new frontier. He told Art Dixon (SC Cal- gary Millican) that the Alberta position is, in effect, to wait for northerners to come to Alberta. The province would never force the issue. No govt. funds for hospital EDMONTON (CP) The provincial government will not provide additional funds to help meet the Royal Alexandra Hospital's million deficit t'lis year. Mayor Ivor Dent and a num- ber of aldermen have had meeting with Neil Crawford, health and social development minister, to try to persuade I he province ot take over at least part of the deficit. "However, the mayor and the aldermen do understand no change in the proposed ar- rangements could he made (.his said Mr. Crawford in an interview today." The under- standing I gave, was that tho points raised will be taken into account in arriving at a hospi- tiil financing policy for tho fu- ture."
