Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Montana power plan opposed Mont. Plans to seed clouds in the Flathead River drainage area and thereby increase produc- tion of electricity in the power-hungry United States Pacific northwest drew predictable opposition from wildlife and conservation groups at a marathon public hearing here. the project proposed by the Bonneville Power Administration drew support from local people concerned about jobs at the nearby Anaconda Aluminum Co. plant. The lasting until early was called by the Montana State Department of Natural Resources. The Mon- tana Resources Board is to decide Nov. 20 whether to grant the BPA authority to conduct the weather- modification program. INCREASE SNOWPACK The project is designed to increase snowpack by 10 per cent in the Hungry Horse reservoir basin this winter. Ronald BPA dis- trict manager in said calculations indicate the project could increase the agency's electrical generation by 220 million kilowatts. That he could carry the total load of the Anaconda Aluminum Co. plant for 32 days or provide the annual power used by typical homes in the Pacific northwest. The cloud-seeding target area covers more than a million acres and includes a large portion of the Bob Marshall wilderness area and part of Glacier National Park. Opposition groups contend- ed principally that increased snowfall would harm wildlife populations. Drought conditions in the Pacific northwest during the past year are blamed for a major shortage of electrical energy. Green Island White ft even sounds refreshing.

Filibuster may be necessary EDMONTON Grant leader of the provin- cial New Democratic said yesterday an opposition filibuster may have to be un- dertaken during the December legislative sitting if Premier Peter Lougheed refuses to provide MLAs with details of energy policies. Mr. Notley was responding in an interview to a statement in the legislature Tuesday by Mr. Lougheed. The premier said legislative approval will be sought for a new royalties framework for gas and oil during energy week debate in December. But MLAs will not be given oil and gas royalty schedules. Energy policy is too fun- damental to Alberta to be handled in this said Mr. adding that the public is becoming apprehensive about abuses of executive power. If the government had pur- sued energy matters cor- Alberta could have had a commitment from Ottawa by now to have the federal government's export tax on crude oil returned to the provincial treasury Mr. Notley will visit 23 Alberta communities during November to speak about the province's energy situation HELP NEEDED TORONTO So many private firms are taking the City of Toronto to court that outside legal help is being brought in to help the city han- dle the extra work.

The 13-member com- headed by Lord rejected the case for granting complete sovereignty to an in- dependent Scotland and Wales on grounds that the majority simply did not want it. It also rejected a federal constitution for the United Kingdom. This would have in- volved partial surrender of parliamentary sovereignty. The commission stuaiea devolution of power for 4Vz years. The report has been eagerly awaited by nationalists in Scotland and and who say itjwill be. a lively issue at the general election due''by 1975 Gwynfor president of Plaid the Welsh na- tionalist told cheering supporters at a meeting in Wales this week that the com- mission's report would mark the beginning of the most crucial week in the party's greatest oppor- tunity we have ever had to de- fend the life of The commission was set up in to counter a feeling that government was remote and unresponsive to the needs of the people of Scotland and Wales. At one Scottish nation- alists made considerable headway and appeared likely to become a significant force in British politics. The report said dissatisfac- tion in Scotland is largely bas- ed on economic con- siderations. In discon- tent is linked with a desire to preserve the Welsh language and culture. Eleven members signed the report. The other two members produced a minority report calling for a wider interpretation of the com- mission's terms of reference.

Political observers expect that Britain's main parties may be slow to act on the recommendations for decentralization. Evans has said the Labor party in particular would strongly oppose devolution.

Canadians on the last United Nations Emergency between 1956 and numbered at peak a defence depart- ment spokesman said here. Only the Korean which involved full-scale war under the UN surpassed the suggested total of Cana- dians on the new UNEF. That war occupied Canadians of all ranks between 1950 and 1954. There are still one Canadian officer and one non-commis- sioned officer serving in Korea under the UN.
