Strip mining damages southeastern B.C. B.C. Strip mining and exploration work for new mines is causing serious environmental damage in southeastern British say two B.C. government biologists. want to stress that the fish and wildlife branch is not against mining as but we want to see the best possible mining techniques are used and also the best methods of mining said Bruce habitat protection biologist with the branch's Victoria head office. He said southeastern B.C. is probably one of the most mountainous areas in the world where strip mining is going and that it is also one of the richest areas in North America for sheep and sports fish. Ken regional habitat protection biologist in said it is not technically possible to reclaim all land that is strip mined and yet strip mining is now being carried out in B.C. on a SECOND APPALACHIA He warned that southeastern B.C. has the potential of becoming a High post Francme Neff of Albu- querque was appointed U.S. treasurer by Presi- dent Nixon.

Professor won't pay income tax OTTAWA Ernest Stickel of does not have to pay Canadian income tax for the two years he spent teaching at the University of the Supreme Court of Canada declared Monday. The court said Mr. now teaching at the University of was exempt from paying taxes here in 1967 and 1968 under a Canada-United States convention which says U.S. teachers visiting Canada to teach for a period not exceeding two years do not pay Canadian taxes. Evidence was that Mr. Stickel stopped teaching at the University of Alberta within the two-year period but held two other non-teaching jobs before returning to the U.S. in 1970. The Federal Court of Canada ruled after a trial ruled that Mr. Stickel must pay Canadian taxes since he was in Canada longer than two years But the Federal Court appeal division reversed that saying Mr. Stickel qualified as a person who temporarily visited Canada for a purpose of teaching in a period that did not exceed two years. this I said Mr. Justice Wilfred .ludson in writing the Supreme Court decision. Mr. Justice Judson also noted evidence that Mr. Stickel had not paid U.S. tax during the disputed period. problem is whether he comes with the treaty giving him exemption for Canadian taxes on his Canadian added the judge. The amount involved was second Appalachia area in the eastern United States with a massive amount of strip because there are coal deposits straddling the Continental Divide from Fernie north to the Peace River area. a tremendous area that has potential for mining and we're looking at long term serious environmental problems unless the government does something about said Mr. Semanik. Mr. Pendergast said he is particularly concerned about exploration plans of Fording Coal a subsidiary of Cominco which has submitted an application to do more exploration work. company wants to dig a trench right across a meadow which is probably the best elk area in the world and also contains a lot of he said. also concerned that the overburden from the trench might slide down the hill. He said most expioratiotion work involves road construction and these roads in high elevations can cause serious environmental damage. Mr. Pendergast said that Kaiser Resources which has submitted four applications to the government to do more exploration has done by far the most environmental damage in the past but they are now one of the most progressive companies. There are less damaging methods of extracting coal from the ground than strip said Mr. Pendergast. One alternative is hydraulic which can recover up to 60 to 70 per cent of the coal whereas the traditional methods get as little as 20 per cent. Another alternative is mining with a drill attached to a where the only disturbance to the land is the pad for the helicopter. Mr. Pendergast said exploration work that involves digging trenches is the method that causes the most damage. says they can't explore without trenching and yet Kaiser is doing so just by drilling he said. Strip mining and exploration work causes most damage in high where in Arctic-like conditions growth is extremely he said. that is disturbed at this elevation has never yet been reclaimed to its original COMPANY ACCUSED Mr. Pendergast said one Alberta Coleman Colleries is dumping its overburden from its coal strip mine over the Continental Divide of the Rocky Mountains into B.C. He said that as B.C. had no mining reclamation regulations until nothing can be done by government agencies to force companies to clean up damage that was done before then.
