Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 23, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, May 93, 1970 - THI UTHMIDOI HIRAID - 2S Greene Rules Out Continental Energy Policy OTTAWA (CP) - Energy Minister J. J. Greene said Fri-j day Canada still is interested in selling surplus energy resources to the United States but ruled out ever becoming involved in a continental energy policy. The current U.S. approach to energy makes it appear as though it wants Canada to give it foreign aid, he said, rather than become involved in a mutually-beneficial trade arrangement. The minister said in an interview Canada is interested in ON THE TOWN - Canadian Prim* Minister Pierre Trudeau, left, takes a night off from official duties in Sydney, Australia, to enjoy sorpe dancing at a nightclub. His partner is identified at Bobo Faulkner.. Drug Crackdown Planned ST. ALBANS, Vt. (AP) - An intensified crackdown of drugs to the United States from Canada will be undertaken during the coming months by the U.S. customs service. Paul Brough, district director of the customs service here, said the effort is aimed at the flow of heroin, marijuana and other illegal and dangerous drugs into the U.S. The new effort, dubbed Operation Able, is similar in scope to Operation Intercept along the U.S.-Mexican border last year that tied up thousands of motor- ists returning to the U.S. from Mexico. The operation was aimed at marijuana and hashish smuggling. An advisory issued by the customs service office in Washington warns that tourists crossing the border "may be delayed" because of "more thorough baggage inspections" and other steps. The advisory also refers to inspection of all foreign mail parcels and said the new program is being initiated because "the United States faces grave danger from drug abuse." Italy's Strike Wave Subsides ROME (AP) - Italy's spring strike wave subsided slightly today, and labor leaders postponed the threat of a general strike until after the regional and local elections June 7. However, the three labor federations rejected the government's plan of social reform saying it was not specific enough. More than 1,000,000 government employees ended a strike a day ahead of schedule. About 40,000 top government bureaucrats also returned to work after being on strike since May 8. Railway employees went back to work in Northern Italy after a one-day strike, but a similar walkout in centra] and southern Italy stopped the trains there. selling anything of which it has a surplus. He said he has informed U.S. Interior Secretary Walter Hickel that it is useless to talk about the export of water to the U.S., because Canada still does not have an inventory of that resource. Even if an inventory proved Canada bad a surplus of water, sale would be difficult because Canada would have to consider its future needs, the potential success of anti-pollution measures, and take into account the past pattern where once an export market is served the tendency is that it continue to be served. STILL WANTS POLICY Mr. Hickel , who is scheduled to confer in Washington next week with Northern Development Minister Jean Chretien on various matters, told the Washington National Press club Thursday he still believes in a North American energy policy covering oil, gas, water and coal. He also termed "very nation- alistic" the speech Mr. Greene gave in Denver last week. Mr. Greene, in a policy switch, said he now opposes a continental energy policy. A continental energy policy as most people understand it, Mr. Greene said Friday, would involve serving of markets across boundaries in perpetuity strictly on the basis of who could pay the most. That, he said, would be an abnegation of sovereignty which would say ow resources are your resources. He said the U.S. has worsened the atmosphere for considera- Wonian Killed In Accident CALGARY (CP) - Janet Luft, 34, of Kathryn, Alta., was identified Friday as the woman killed Thursday in a two-car collision 30 miles northwest of the city. Six other persons, including four children, were injured in the crash, none seriously. tion of trade in resources by tightening import restrictions on Canadian oil. He said he hopes that President Nixon will reconsider the restrictions during the summer, when energy is less in demand. The minister said he does not feel the U.S. is trying to twist Canada's aim with the oil restrictions to force Canada to provide energy on a long-term basis, but ttjat is what the majority of Canadians think. Rap Brown Reported In Algeria WASHINGTON (AP) - The Evening Star says United States government sources report that Negro militant Hubert G. (Rap) Brown is in Algeria. Brown did not appear for trial May 4 in Ellicott City, Md., on charges of inciting to riot and arson that resulted from a speech he made in Cambridge, Md., in 1967. \ Meanwhile, the state department said it had no information from its office in Algeria to confirm that Brown is in that country. Brown was added to the Federal Bureau of Investigation list of the 10 most-wanted after he jumped $10,000 bond set for the May 4 trial. He was last seen March 7. Brown, 26, a former chairman of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, faces fines of up to $7,000 and up to seven years for jumping bond. Algeria is the present refuge of Eldridge Cleaver, former information minister of the Black Panther party. The country has no reciprocal extradition agreement with the U.S. More Troops Go To Ireland LONDON (AP) - Britain will move 750 more troops into Northern Ireland to guard against possible unrest during the national election campaign next month.
