Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THI UTHIRIDGI HIHALO Wtdntidny, May S7, 1970 Greene Maintains Stand On Energy Resources TORONTO (CP) Energy Minister J. J. Greene main tained the nationalist tone of Ms recent statements on Canada's resource policies in a speech Tuesday night to the Canadiai Nuclear Association. Mr. Greene's remarks con firmed his previous rejection of a continental energy policy con cept ami his conviction that the nation's energy resources mus remain firmly in Canadian hands. Earlier in the day, G. E, Roark, president of the Inde- pendent Petroleum Association of Canada, told the association the government is coming "dan- gerously close" to destroying development in western anc northern Canada by rejecting continental policies fof oil anc gas. A highlight of Mr. Greene's speech was his assessment oi the possibilities of building an oil and gas pipeline system from both the Canadian North and Alaska to southern mar kets. But even here he stressed til need for such a system as one way of assuring Canadian con trol of the nation's resources and the means by which thej are produced, transported and marketed. Mr. Greene said foreign capi- tal would be welcome in helping to build such a system as long as financial arrangements were "consistent with the interests of Canada." The minister's remarks were similar to those he made in a speech in Denver; Colo., May 12 to a meeting of United States oil company executives. There, he rejected the continental energy policy concept and said Canadi- ans wanted to escape the ma- laise of U.S. society. Mr. Greene said he was taken aback by the reaction to his Denver speech but said it was a "political conclusion of a clear political decision on the part of the Canadian people." POINTS TO CURBS He reiterated the govern- ment's regret over1 U.S. curbs on imports of Canadian crude oil, imposed earlier this year. The connection between Can. ada's desire to increase oil ex- ports and the U.S. demand for lanadian natural gas "must be kept in mind in our evaluation of our options as to policy on trade in oil and gas." The minister also reiterated he government's intention to ensure that control of ipn's uranium reserves re- mains In Canada.

He mentionec specifically Mr. Greene's Den ver speech. The result has been a flight capital and a slowdown in ex ploration plans, he said. Mr. Roark said the U.S. cur on Canadian oil imports appears to be justified in that the U.S. understandably anxious to mak secure the energy supplies the North American continent. He urged "close and earl co-operation in the developmen and distribution of oil and nah. ral gas" which was of "tremen dous economic advantages both countries in the short a well as the long run."

Senate has approved lan- uage aimed at conciliating flute House opposition to an mendment to bar future U.S. military operations in Cam- odia, but new disclosures of Vmerican arms shipments hap irred anew the debate over le controversy. The Senate Tuesday by a vote E 82 to 11 adopted phrasing de- laring the proposed June 30 cutoff of spending for U.S. mili- ary activities in Cambodia to je in support of Nixon's an- nounced withdrawal timetable. But the impact of the vote was negligible with1 no sign tire White House would ease its stand against the main amend- ment sponsored by Senators John Sherman Cooper (Rep. Ky.) and Frank Church (Dem. Senator J. W. Fulbright (Dem. disclosed Tuesday the administration had advised Congress it was supplying worth of small arms to Cambodia. He said the way the program was initiated and disclosed indicates "the admin- istration's disdain for true con- Student Stuns Audience At U of A Convocation EDMONTON (CP) More lan persons at the Uni- ersity of Alberta spring con- oeation sat in stunned silence or several seconds Tuesday af- er the student union president uoted Mao Tse-Tung and lack Panther Leader Elridge Cleaver during a speech to graduates. "We can no longer afford the uxury of not being socially re- Tim Christain told ie audience. "I think that so- ial responsibility, is synony- lous with the act of asserting iat which is human. "This process not only means tat all men should have the ght to determine their own estinies and to develop them- elves fully and creatively, it ivolves also the attempt to iake this right a reality." Mr. Christian said he viewed ssent and critical examina- on of established social insti- tions as "very positive ae- ons in our times." Quoting Cleaver, he said: brmer Girl uide Official Dies At 61 CALGARY (CP) Miss izabelh Riddoch, 61, field sec- tary and camp advisor for e Alberta Girl Guides As- ciation for 20 years, died lesday. j She had been associated with e girl guide movement for 48 ars, either as a member or ader. Miss Riddoch worked exten- in the Northwest Terri- ries with Indian and Eskimo ildren and in 1917 was pre- nted the Beaver Badge, the ghcst honor in the Canadian rl Guides. iho retired from active par- ripation in in 1964. "If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem. "To paraphrase Mao Tse- Tung, 'one must dare to strug- gle if he dares to win.'" New Safety Standards For Towbaats OTTAWA (CP) Agreement has been reached on a new set of safety standards for the strikebound British Columbia t o w b o a t industry, Transport Minister Donald Jamieson said Tuesday. Mr. Jamieson told the Com- mas the regulations have been worked out by a committee rep- resenting his own department, employers and employees. An- other two weeks be re- quired to translate the new rules into legal language and out them into effect, he said. The B.C. economy has been crippled for the last three weeks by a strike of the Cana- dian Merchant Service Guild over safety and manning in the tugboat industry. The union is seeking to have new standards written into a contract. saltation the Congress on foreign policy matters." And Senator George D. Aiken (Rep. Vt.) said in a Senate speech some of President Nix- on's allies in the Cambodian dis- pute will turn out to be adver- saries when the administration proposes programs to help needy Americans at home. The Senate action came as In- done'sian President Suharto called for the withdrawal of all foreign forces from Cambodia during a White House banquet. Warning the threat of war across A.sia is spreading, Su- harto cited an agreement by 11 non-Communist Asian and Pa- cific nations that international action be taken to solve the Cambodian problem. "All efforts should be taken to prevent the war from widening and to ensure the preservation of Cambodia's right to sover- eignty and neutrality, among other things, by effecting the withdrawal of all foreign forces from Cambodian he said. Nixon, responding briefly to Suharto's remarks, said he agreed. In his Tuesday 'remarks, Aiken, the Senate's senior Re- publican, said the Cooper- Church amendment would help Nixon resist pressure from hawks who seek a military solu- tion in Indochina. But tha administration op- poses the amendment as an un- acceptable restriction on the power of the commander-in- chief. "The effect of the amend- said Senate Republican whip Robert P. Griffin, "is to take a slap at the president, to undercut and undermine him at a very difficult time in our his- tory." A hint of a filibuster came when Griffin said his party will spend aa average of two or three days, each on the eight or nine pending amendments. This could delay a final vote on the measure until the end of June. 91-Year-Old Woman Killed CALGARY (CP) Louise Gilson, 91, of Calgary was killed when the car in which she was a passenger was in- volved in a three vehicle col- lission near tiro downtown area.

Doukhobor Leader Allowed To Stay VANCOUVER (CP) Sudan, spiritual leader of the Sons of Freedom Doukhobors, las been granted landed immi- grant status despite a politi- cian's plea to keep him out ot Canada. Immigration department offi- cials here said Tuesday they will serve the psjjers granting landed status as soon as they can locate the W-year-oM leader of the religious sect (tot once terrorized the West Kootenay area of British Columbia. Earlier this month, Butt Campbell, Sockl Credit mem- ber of the legislature tor Revel- stoke-Slocati, urged Ottawa to deny Mr. Sorokin's bid to re- main here. He said in a telegram to Allan MacEachen, minister of man- xiwer and immigration, that :be Freedomites appeared to be "assimilating quite and am tearful Sorokin's permanent re- .urn might well cause past problems to reoccur." Mr. Sorokin had Eved 'in Uru- guay since 1952, when be left Canada to find a new land for ics followers. He returned to Canada as a tourist in 1960 and again last year. A maximum security prison was built in 1960 near Agassiz, about 65 miles east of here to iouse up to 350 men and women ?reedomites jailed for terrorist activities. Only a handful of jrisoners remain. Some Free- lomites have returned to Hie iCrestova area .250 miles east of wre, atid others have remained m the lower mainland and Fra- ser Valley. In seeking, a denial of the ap- >Ecation for landed immigrant status, Mr. Campbell said he couldn't see why Mr. Sorokin would want to return to Kres- tova, where Iris Canadian has property. "He could end up being magnet attracting Freedomites back to Krestova with what con- sequences no one knows, Mr. Campbell said. "What the freedomites don't need is leadership. The Free- domites appear to be assimilat- ing quite well into the total Dou- khobor-Canadian community." Provincial Judge William Evans of Nelson, a Ooufchobor confidant, said Tuesday he be- lieved Mr. Sorokin's stay in Canada after his self-tapowd exile is a good idea. "As far as the concerned, this wffl help main- tain the he said. "I rec- ommended to the government that he be granted landed immigrant status."
