Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta RECEIVES AWARD Pierre Berlon (left) receives (Her- awards from Governor-General Roland Michener in Ottawa. Sask. legislation stirs controversy R.EGINA (CP} The Sas- katchewan legislature p r o- rogued after sitting a near-rec- ord 51 days lo approve a rec- ord 158 bills, some attracting controversy lasting lo the final day. Premier Allan Blakeney's New Democratic Party gov- ernment retrieved a key 1971 election promise with 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 ils initial year to purchase land and rent it to farmers. After five years a Icnanl lias Ihe option lo buy it. The 15 member Opposition said the bill would result in a stale-owned 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 Mcsser said the hill is not a final solution but would pro- vide for a better transfer of land, Cy HacDonald stone) called it a "land grab" Reduce the price of your car wash when you fill your tank with gasoline at a Pacific 66 Car Wash!

We Care about you and your car i That's a promise j bill that would turn farmers into sharecroppers. Mr. Messer, speaking prior to third-reading approval, said (lie hill would provide a base for such programs as income stabilization, diversification, in- creased co-operative ventures and farm management im- provement. The GO-fficmbc; house, which began silting Feb. 24, also ap- proved closely allipned bills, replacing federal estate and gift taxes, both of which direct- ly affect land bequests and Sifts. Tied closely to these was a bill to control foreign owner- ship of Saskatchewan farm land, hut which got only secon' reading and was referred to a special legislative committee for public hearings. The bill proposes to limit the amount of farm land a non resident can own. and would allow the government, lo force non residenls who in- herit farm land to sell within a year to a Saskatchewan resi- dent. The Succession Duty Act. ret- roactive to last Jan. exempts estates worth or less, and those worth up to if willed to a spouse or chil- dren. Gas deal slill up in air r move EDMONTON fCP) 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 (here are "considerable advantages f o r Canada and for Alberta in an alternation of provincial bound- aries." But the initialive must come from the norlhcrn people who had made "the pioneering ef- fort" to settle the new frontier. He told Art Dixon fSC Cal- gary Millican) that the Alberta position is, in effecl, lo wait for northerners to come to Alberta. The province would never force the issue. No govt. fuucls for hospital EDMONTON (CP) The provincial Rovermnont will not provide additional funds to help meet the Royal Alexandra Hospital's million deficit his year. Mayor Ivor Dent and a num- ber of aldermen have had a meeting with Neil Crawford, health and social development minister, to try to persuade Ihe province ot lake over at le.isl pnrl. of Ihe deficil. "However, the mayor and the aldermen do understand no change in the proposed ar- rangements could he made this snld Mr. Crawford in an interview today." The under, slnnning I gave was that the points raised will he lakcn Into account in arriving at a hospi- tal financing policy for tho fu- ture." Canada clears Montana bid HAVRE. Monl. (API An Omaha, Nell, nalural gas firm has received approval from the Canadian National Energy Board lo transport Montana gas across Canada Tor 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 slated the public interest would he hotter served by leav- ing the gas in Montana for Monliinans, and the Montana Power Co. has urged that the gas not be exported, a North- ern official implied the go- ahead for the project would come. NEW SUPPLY sound-: "The Montana gas field re- presents a completely new source of supply for rnidwest- ern gas consumers." northern vice president H. M. Sampson said recently. "It is a gas pro- ducing area which is likely (o see greatly increased gas ex- ploration and development acti- vities hecause of the access to our pipeline to a major mar- keling area." Ho said the new gas supply would help ease the tight gas supply situation in Northern's marketing area. In Buttc, 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 "n-ishful thinking."
