Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta HIGH FORECAST WEDNESDAY 85. The Lcthbrulcic Herald VOL. LXV 143 LETHBIIIDGE, ALBERTA, TUESDAY, MAY 30, 1972 PRICE NOT OVER 10 THREE SECTIONS 44 PAGES By .1ACK50N Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA A number fit Western Canadian op- position MPb, eying with outright suspicion Prime Min- ister Tnicieau's weekend announcement ot a purchase ol rail hopper cars to help move grain lo ex- port markets, launched into a concentrated attack against the government in Hie House of Commons Monday Led by AU Cleave and Bided cccauoraMy by the odd MP from Eastern Can- ada, the three-party assault seemed to suggest that the Liberal government was hiding something about the S42 million deal. The opposition fears that: The Western grain fanner is eventually going lo have lo foot llic bill Inr the hopper cars which will be by the Canadian Wheat Board. Bonanza gift The railways are Ireing handed a bonanza gift of the cars which will enable them to simply mova cars now used in transporting grain to other tasks leaving the farmer in (he same bind he was in before. Not so. Justice Minister Otto Lang assured the Commons. Mr. Lang, minister responsible for the wheat board, paid under no circumstances would the farmer have lo foot lite million bill, either directly or in- directly, for the cars. 'Hin said vail-u'ay rolling iinct would siijl IK lo haul Tie new rare TKMild definitely be used PS additional facilities. Opposition questions on the subject, resulting From Ihe speech the prime minister made to a Liberal Party dinner in Winnipeg on Saturday, took up more lime than any other subject in the Commons question period. Jack Jldnlosh (PC Swill Current-Maple Creek) wanted lo know what type of an agreement had been arrived at between the wheat board and the railways for transporting grain. He suggested that instead of probing around in the dark the government should release the document. Mr- Lane, who said the agreement the Saskatch- ewan MP referred to was an "understanding" between the various parties, said he would discuss with wheat board officials whether it should be made public. Shot back Mr. Mclnlosh: "In other words, we are in take it from the minklcr's remarks Ihat there was no agreement." "That is quite wrong." replied the minister. "I in- dicated there was on agreement.'1 Manitoba MP Craig Stewart (PC Marquette) suggested Ihat despite the additional rail cars the gov- ernment should be working on "the most pressing prob- lem" lacing western farnm-s, that of the alleged low price the government is getting for the grain. Mr. Lang asked whether the Manitoba MP thought Ihe government should sell grain for the prices it could get, or ask unrealistic prices and not sell any grain at all. Doing besl The minister, both inside and outside the Commons chamber, said the government was doing all it could to help the Western p'ain farmer. He pointed out the implementation of a two-price system forpwheal, rec- ord oversees prain sales which he said might even reach 300 million bushels this year, and the purcliaso of the 2.000 hopper cars. Mr. Lang, defending the purchase of the hopper cars as the most practical solution to the grain trans- port problem, snppcslofl that in time other arrange- ment licnr worked out Iliaf. would have liolptxl to eradicate bottlenecks and slowdowns. "Ilouovor, we wanled lo get the pram to niaikcts Ihis year and not have lo wail, until next The linppor imahlo us lo do be insisted.

Iran gives Nixon royal welcome die in fighting coup attempt KAMPALA, Uganda (Renter) A least people have died in fighting in the tiny East African state of Burundi since a coup attempt a month ago, says tlie government radio station, Ihe Voice of the Revolution, monitored here. A French-language broadcast Monday night said that teams of volunteers had recovered bodies, n o t counting those who are missing or who have fled as refugees to Tanza- nia and Zaire.'' From AP-llEUTEIl TEHRAN (CP) President Kixon arrived in Iran's capital today, to a 21-gun salule. for an overnight visit and five hours of talks the Shah on regional and world matters. The president and Mrs. Xixou were greeted at Men- rabad Airport by the 52-year-old monarch and Empress Farah after a flight from Kiev, the Nixons' last stop in the Soviet Union following 3 of sum- mit talks between the President and Kremlin leaders. Massive security precautions were taken against attacks by urban guerrillas and other dissi- den! Iranians who were told by Baghdad broadcasts to disrupt the visit. Police lined the presi- dent's route into the city and there were heavy guards at aU points on his itinerary. Tired but still cheerful, the U.S. president said goodbye at Kiev airport to President Alex- ander Lyshko of the Ukraine and other officials and made a brief tonr of the capital of the Ukraine and a cradle of Russian civilization. Earlier this morning, the president placed a wreath at (he tomb of tlie unknown soldier, a tall obelisk of polished granile set in one of Kiev's parks. Later he visited the nth-cen- tury Byzantine Cathedral of St. Sofia where lie was taken on a conducted tour. Thousands of Ukrainians lined the .streets but were held back sometimes more than 50 yards, at side streets and intersections. SOME COMPLAIN Some were heard complaining that they could not glimpse Ihe president and Mrs. Nixon as they sped past in a limousine. U.S. officials acclaimed the results of Nixon's Kremlin meetings, saying he had won es- sentially what he had come to achieve. EDMONTON fCP) Tlie Al- bcita government cannot spe- cifically support the proposed -30-million village Lake Louise project in Banff National Park until existing deficiencies are solved, Don Gelty, minister of federal and intergovernmental affairs, said Monday. The government's position was spelled out in a letter to Jean Chretien, federal minister of Indian affairs and northern development, read to the leg- islature by Mr. Getty. SERIOUS DEFECTS The leller said there are five serious defects in tlie project proposed by Imperial Oil Ltd. and Village Lake Louise Ltd.: Tl appears Ihe project will re- sult in too great a concentra- tion of population contrary to the spirit and intent of Ihe na- tional parks; The acknowledged lack of a thorough study of the environ- mental impact of such a pro- ject on an area which is known for its natural beauty and rela- tively fragile ecology; The nature of the project Indicates (hat the facilities will not meet (he needs of Canadian and Alberta families of all in- come levels; T h P, validily of the principU; within a Park is qneslionablG 9 ud suggested allocation of their ownership 19 unrealistic; Another large townsile would bo created while problems en- countered by the existing town- silcs of Banff and Jasper have not been solved. GUIDELINES Mr. Gclty said it has "be- come obvious that any large project of the nature of Village Lake Louise should only be con- sidered after the National parks have been zoned using the foUiwing proposed guide- line? 1. N on-development zones which should involve the ma- jority of the park area and where no development should be allowed of any type. 2. Partial development zones most of the balance of (lie park, where development would be restricted to facilities such as roads and riding and hiking trails. The purpose of this would be to make it possible for the citizens lo un- joy the parks in their natural state. 3. Development or recreation zones being a small percent- age of the park which would allow recreation and accommo- dation facilities for Canadians and visitors so that these peo- ple could enjoy llic mountain areas of which lie pri- marily within national parks. These developments would in- clude appropriate sporls such as skiing in the waler and golf in llic summer wilh the facili- ties capable of meeting the re- quirements of average income earners. Air. Getly said Alberta is pre- pared to enler into discussions to work out a logical park zone plan, "which is RSSRnlial be- fore any alternatives lo Village Lake Louise are proposed.7' The letter urged that "we work out with you a feasible approach lo assure an ade- quate degree of local autonomy for the many Albertans who now are residents in the i own- sites of Banff r.nd Jasper." THIE HAS COME Tlie lime now has come for I h e whole question of na- tional parks pnhcy in Alberta to be in n manner sccepl-- able to the majority of our cit- izens. "This policy must meet the concerns of most of our cit- izeas that i.s. national parks esscnlipJJy preserved in their natural stale for Hie enjoyment of this and future generations but wilh some portion of the mountain areas of Alberta vitliin our national parks avail- able ID meet the recreation and accommodation needs of Alber- tans and Canadians." Mr. Getty emphasized that the Alberta government be- lieves the dual objectives can be met and that studies indi- cate a number of alternatives which can be considered. The existing highway trans- porUtion corridor could be re- moved from national park status, perhaps in exchange for some other part ot the prov- ince. pay 'Surely Siberia would be tha place to sign a SALT agree- ment.'
