Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta The letlibridge Herald THIRD SECTION Lelhbridge, Alberta, Friday, May 12, 1972 A r1 trc or; _ jiJ ii3 Govt. announces plans for two north highways MONTREAL (CP) Jean Chretien, minister of Indian af- fairs and northern development, announced today the federal government will spend mil lion tills year on two highways to the north that eventually will cost million. The million is the largest amount of money spent by his department in a single year on northern roads and is a clear in- dication of the government's "commitment to northern devel- he said in a speech that touched on everything from Indians to highways and pipe- lines. "We are on the threshold of great events in the he told the annual convention of the Pipe Line Contractors Asso- ciation or Canada. "We are in the midst of an adventure of social and eco- nomic impact rivalling the con- struction of the Canadian Pa- cific Railway." He said the million of the S15 million will be spent on the Mackenzie Highway and the re- mainder to the highway be- tween Dempster, in the Yukon, to Arctic Red River, N.W.T. GIVE MORE DETAILS The minister's speech was an expansion of Prime Minister Trudeau's announcement in the West recently about construc- tion of the Mackenzie Highway. He gave specific details of the route of the highway. Mr. Trudeau mentioned that the builders of the Mackenzie pipeline will be expected to pay for part of the highway. Mr. Chretien went further and said that the companies also will be expected to pay part of the cost of enviromnental studies now being conducted. Some of the major points of Mr. Chretien's speech: is no doubt there will be at least a gas pipeline down the Mackenzie from the Arctic but there is still doubt whether the first Arctic oil pipeline will be in Canada or Alaska. The government is ready to receive JEAN CIIRETIIW announces project an application for an oil or gas pipeline at any time envisaged the Mackenzie corridor as a "total containing a road, one or two pipelines, a water route, tele- phone and other communication lines and possibly high-voltage electric lines. corridor will be as wide as 10 to 20 miles in places. h e northern made particular and extended reference to the native must participate in the con- struction of the pipeline and reap benefits from the corridor.

The Dempster road, stretch- ing 365 miles northward from near Dawson City in the Yukon to Arcii Red River on the Mac- kenzie Highway will eventually cost 541 million. Some 270 miles of the Mac- kenzie far as Foil has been built. Mr. Chretien said work on the Inuvik-Arctic Red River sec- tion will be accelerated. CONSIDER ENVIRONMENT The route of the highway would be tJiat considered best for pipelines, after other factors are considered, including the ef- fect on the environment and the people. The minister said he is con- vinced that the highway will be- come one of the major high- ways of Canada, playing a sig- nificant future role for the Mac- kenzie delta, opening the region for year-round transportation, accelerating resources develop- ment and becoming one of the continent's great tourist attrac- tions. On the last point he said tour- ists twill be able to drive from Alberta northward and return via the Yukon and Brititsh Col- umbia, using the Dempster highway. The two highways would make square miles of area about the size oC The northern people would be able to travel within and out of the territory on the highway which would open the way for service industries, such as ho- tels, motels, restaurants and service stations. Federal funds would be made available to enable the people to take advantage of the develop- ment. EXPAND WATERWAY Mr. Chretien said the pipeline and highway construction will make necessary the exparsion of the Mackenzie waterway which now is the main transpor- tation route in the area. He said studies by the North- ern Canada Power Commission ndicate that 600-megawatt sys- tem could be developed for million. This could provide about one-half of the power needed by compressors con- nected to two pipeline systems. He realized that oil and gas companies prefer to use their own product to provide power but they may find power prov Mod by a Mackenzie system cheaper. Spokesmen for the pipeline in dustry have been less than en thusiastic in recent statements about paying for part of the highway. Without mentioning these statements, Mr. Chretien said: "As surely as we believe thai a pipeline will be built, so also we consider only reasonable to recover a portion of the savings realized through use of the facil- ities in Hie corridor." He said the longer the dis- tance that highway and pipeline run together the greater the savings to the pipeline builders and the "greater would be our expected return." The government planned to spend at least million on en vironmental and social research and studies and "we may want to recover at least part of the cost of these studies as well." STILL TO BE DECIDED He said it has not been deter- mined how these costs would be recovered but probably they would be included in the cost of a pipeline right-of-way. The government did not ex- pect to recover all costs but "I do not feel that the government, or the people as a whole, should be expected to pay an exces- sively large share of the cost ol providing services, the need ol which is created by the develo- per in the first place." "Therefore, we will be ready to talk with pipeline companies concerned in order that we un- derstand fully their position and their costs." He said northern natives must be able to take advantage of employment opportunities that will become available. Not only that, but there must not be a repetition of the "boom and ghost town" situation all too fre- quent in southern Canada after construction is completed. The government planned to have as many northerners as possible employed in building and operating the pipelines and was stepping up vocational training in this regard. We must ensure that north- ern residents participate in this great adventure, that they form a realistic part of the work force in accordance with their numbers, and that they have some part in the planning."

Parliament currently is in tha process of amending the Crimi- nal Code to empower judges lo ease the weight of a conviction by allowing some drivers to use vehicles during working hours. The snag is that varying pro- vincial laws would render the judge's decision meaningless in many cases. For instance, con- viction on some traffic infrac- tions brings an automatic lic- ence suspension in some prov- inces. Thus the court judgment would enable a convicted person !o drive while working bill Ihn province would remove his lic- ence, making (he proposed fed- eral law ineffective. The Commons juslice commit- tee pondered Ihe dilemma here, while studying a Criminal Code amending bill, and heard i a possible solution from Uie fed- eral juslice department. The department proposal would mean that where an in- termittent sentence was made ineffective by provincial law, I lie person would aulomaticallv he held lo he nol guilty. MAY HASTEN REFORM MPs will sludy the proposal In detail in furlher meetings on Ihe bill but appeared receptive lo it. One said privately it would vir- tually force some provinces Into bringing highway traffic laws into conformity with federal laws, in the process standardiz- ing a confusing clutter of laws across the country. The committee rapidly passed sections of the bill that would repeal the offence of attempted suicide, repeal the lash as a punishment for crime and end the use of the vagrancy section to pick up the penniless and the proslilules. The same bill would raise the maximum penalty for assault- ing or obstructing a peace offi- cer to five years from two. It also would enable less-serious assault cases to be handled summarily, wilh maximum sen- tence of six monlhs in jail or a 5500 fine. Tho coinmiUce split ]0 to on the increased sentence, will] Conservative Gordon Fair- weather (Fundy-Eoyal) voting with New Democrats Andrew Brewin (Toronto-Greenwood) and John Gilbert (Toronlo- Broadview) against it. Another stiffened clause would raise lo 10 years from two the maximum penalty for obstructing witnesses or jury members or trying to bribe a jury. Officials said this had provin- cial support and referred lo a 1970 British Columbia case In which a judge, imposing Iho maximum sentence, called it "grossly inadequate."
