Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IITHBRID3E HERALD Saturday, May 26, 1973 billion situation Car pollution change costly TORONTO (CP) If Canada adopts the 1975 and 1976 auto emission control standards pro- posed by the United States, the Canadian petroleum industry will have to spend billion by 1980 to meet the changes, a pet- roleum industry spokesman said Thursday. Speaking to the Canadian branch of the Oil Industry TBA (Tires, Batteries, Accessories) Group, R. A. Shaver, president of the Petroleum Association for Conservation of the Cana- dian Environment said an expenditure will be required to provide for non-leaded gasoline refining equipment. The special equipment will be needed for the catalytic con- verters likely to be used to meet the requirements. Another 5200 million will be required for segregated marketing equip- ment to accommodate and store the no-lead gasoline. He said this may be only a stopgap device as new engines would make no-lead gasaline unnecessary. The federal gov- ernment should make sure it hss determined how necessary additional auto emission and gasoline lead controls are be- fore imposing them, he said. In urging government cau- tion, Mr. Shaver said U.S. ef- forts at air pollution abatement Q-X WITH MOLY -SAVES- 15% TO 60% EVERY YEAR ON OPERATING AND REPAIR COSTS Available Now for Automobiles Simply add 16 oz. to 5 qts. oil or in proportion To Crankcase and Automatic Transmission Tested by Tachometers and Used Oil Analysis Q-X Moly improves efficiently of oils three times.

A representative of Environ- ment Canada told the meeting a decision on what course Canada wiil follow concerning the 1975 controls will made some time nsxt month. Jan Chrystman, director of the department's abatement and appliance branch of the en- vironmental protection service, said the various federal depart- ments involved with setting the controls are to begin a review today of all the representations made on the matter. Mr. Shaver said a report by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences in February found that the averags suggested retail price of a car with a dual catalyst to meet 1976 standards is expected to be more than the comparable 1973 model and more than the 1970 model. Mr. Chrystman noted these estimates did not take into ac- count that a significant part of tris already j been spent on 1373 models. j WE WANT YOUR BUSINESS AND OUR Figures don't lie Here are just two of the great deals we have for you 1973 I4'x68' FEATURE Save Fully furnished, 3 bedroom, fully carpeted.

U.S., Switzerland sign crime pact I BERN f AP> The United The treaty is aimed specific- States and Switzerland signed! at crime syndicate leaders Oil company not liable to pay tax OTTAWA (CP) Asamera Oil Ltd., a wholly-owned sub- sidiary of Asamera Oil Corp. of Calgary, was not liable to pay income tax between 1963 and 1971, the Federal Court has ruled. The court upheld Asamera's appeal against a finding of the revenue department that it was owed income tax on earnings of in the nine-year pe- riod. The company, incorporated under the laws of Bermuda, ar- gued it was not liable for Cana- dian taxes because it was not resident in Canada. The company also argued that it had capital expenses of million in the years under review compared with mil- lion revenues. In making his decision, Mr. Justice Darrel Heald said Asa- mera was entitled to deduct the miDion as allowable ex- jenses and thus owed no taxes. Because of this decision, he did nst rule on whether Asa- mara was a Canadian resident and subject therefore to Cana- dian taxes.

LETHBRIDGE AUCTIONEERS TED NEWBY KEITH ERDMANN Lie. 41 Lie. 458 OTTAWA (CP) The Com- mons justice and legal affairs committee privately discused security matters with Solicitor- General Wan-en Allmand, as at least one member sought to ensure there be no Watergate affair in Canada. The meeting was the first of two secret sessions following fears expressed by Erik Nielen that a police force is growing in secret here. Today the committee was to view the operations of Mr. Al- Imand's controversial Police and Security Planning and Re- search Group subject of opposi- tion questions in recent years. All members undertook not to discuss in public what they were told in the private meet- ings. But Mr. Nielsen said in an in- terview he discovered that some of the long series of ques- tions lie put on the Commons order paper before Easter would breach national security if they were answered in public. NO ANSWERS GIVEN The IMP, who is solicitor-gen- eral critic for his party, has yet to receive answers to his ques- tions which gave a pcture of government, operating in con- cert. Mr. Allmand has said the Po- lice and Security Planning Agency is a collector of avail- able information and does no in- vestigation itself. Mr. Nielsen said Thursday his apprehension will not be allayed until there is no chance of sub- verting Canadian security for political purposes. He said there is nothing to prevent a Watergate happening in Canada. "There is no reason to believe that we are purer than the Americans are.'' He wanted parliamentary au- thority behind creations such as the police and security group so that MPs could keep check on them. The MP said Mr. Allmar.d has given an undertaking to consider that. BRIEF OPPOSITION Mr. Nielsen said the leader of the Opposition should be briefed frequently on security matters, such as in the United States and Britain. "I'll not rest easy until I'm sure that no political party can use security for its own pur- poses.'1 He said he applies that feel- ing to any future Conservative government as well as the present Liberal administration. Mr. Nielsen, who has said he submit more questions if the present ones on the order paper are not anwered, said his future action will be deter- mined to a degree by what he learns at the private committee meetings. But he said he submitted some of his questions, knowing that they could not be an- ernment the knowledge. extent of his Light show off GRAND COULEE DAM, Wash.
