Burns vice- said in a telephone interview from Calgary that construction costs have increased by more than million to and interest rates have doubled since plans for the plant were announced two years ago.

EDMONTON Heat wasted by thermal electric plants could be used to produce millions of pounds of fish at a tremendous saving to electricity two ad- vocates of fish culture report. Dennis Harrison and Bob who have produced a manual on fish farming for the Alberta agriculture say electric plants should sell their waste heat to commercial fish farmers rather than spend millions on thermal pollution control. They say the key ingredient lacking in Alberta for year- round fish farming operations is .something that the thermal electric plants waste in vast quantities because of the low efficiency in converting coal to electricity.

The proposed coke-fired plant to Duilt by Alberta Power and Syncrude Canada Ltd. near Fort McMurray in northeastern Alberta could produce another two million pounds.
