By AL SCARTH Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON The Alberta government and Petrosar Ltd. remained at an impasses Thursday on a giant petrochemical plant proposed for Sarnia. Stony-faced officials of the company presented reporters with a short statement after meeting with premier Peter Lougheed for about two hours. They refused all comment other than the statement and virtually stalked out of the aborted press conference. Mr. Lougheed told the legislature later in the day the company controlled by a federal crown corporation would consider suggestions made by the province. But observers said there seemed little hope the project would even partially relocate in Alberta. cancel the project at this stage would not only result in a loss of about million in sunk costs but more importantly the delay in providing primary petrochemicals would cripple hundreds of user plants across the Petrosar Chairman I. C. Rush told the premier. The company said its plans are so far construction of the million plant could begin by July. to the selection of the location and feedstock some two years Petrosar thoroughly considered the possibility of an Alberta location.

The province says the oil should be used to diversify Alberta not supplement the region of Central Canada with the highest wages and greatest concentration of industrial jobs in the nation. It also says there is no room in the market for three world- scale petrochemical plants in Canada. Two are now proposed for.Alberta. Petrosar and Ottawa disagree and the federal government says it is prepared to force the province to provide the oil. was a frank exchange of opinion and we are hopeful that as a result of this meeting there will be a greater understanding and appreciation of each other's problems and officials said in their press Mr. Lougheed told the legislature no concrete results could be reported from the meeting. There could be further discussions after the company provides the province with its feasibility study which rejected an Alberta he said. The premier also said the province re-iterated its stand that the company should not depend on Alberta oil for its plant. He has conceded Ottawa could the plant as it has jurisdiction over oil exports once they leave Alberta. He has not revealed what tactics the province could use to block the plant.

Federal feed grain policy beyond provincial control Inside WINNIPEG Otto minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat said Thursday the federal government's new feed grain policy will be beyond the reach of amendments or adjustments by provincial feed grain marketing boards. Mr. Lang told a news conference the policy will be under sole jurisdiction of the federal government. The new effective Aug will create an open market for domestic feed grains that would permit buyers from outside the wheat board region to deal directly with producers. He said provincial commissions like the Manitoba Feed Grains Marketing have such as setting minimum prices within provincial boundaries. he the Supreme Court has made it clear that jurisdiction in inter-provincial grain sales and elevator systems belongs with the federal government.

If the per-bushel price is less than the floor the guarantee payment would make up the difference. The system would operate without regard to what a farmer may have actually sold his product for. The storage subsidy would involve building and maintaining grain storage terminals at strategic points.. Construction and operation of the terminals may involve both the government and private industry.
