Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Taylor urges govt, voice in aviation decisions iWiXiAKY ' CP i - Because iif a growing economic involvement in aviation by provincial governments, they should have a voice in decisions affecting in Ira - air transportation. Gordon Taylor. Alberta highways inmis-icr. said here. He was addressing the open ing session of the second International Aviation Conference. 'Many times priorities which are set nationally do not in our view, fulfill the total need of the province.'' In such instances, he said, the provincial government has sup plemented normal air develop ment by providing "facilities which are more local in then-servicing requirements t h a n those we see being developed on i he national scene." PAY FOR AlKSTKIP He explained this by mentioning a i r s t r i p development in northern Alberta which is financed by the province. "The provincial government is required to spend huge sums of money on highways to airports, and inun i c i p a I governments must take responsibility for zoning, detrimental effects on adjacent land and'for noise. Some airports in Canada tu day cannot carry out their function because of residential areas being established right up to i heir very edge. Buffer zones, proper zoning and adequate control regulations can avoid many of the problems with which we are now faced. "Surely, the level of government which must deal with the problems must have a voice in the decisions." NORTH LINK A All':ST lie also said direct air service between Alberta and Alaska for passenger and air freight is a must. "We have developed the nucleus of management and technical people who are in demand in areas such as Alaska in the development of its oil boom. "If we are to maintain and retain this bank of knowledge in Canada we must have air routes I directly linking this province i with Alaska and other oil-pro-1 ducing areas." Mr. Taylor told more than 400 delegates that the Alberta gov- i ernmenl will also take a leading role in having a supersonic aii-port for Western Canada located in Alberta. Because of economics, Mr. Taylor said "it is unlikely that a supersonic airport can be justified at more than one location in Western Canada." "Such a facility will form the hub of international air activity within the prairie region and we will put forth Alberta's case." Russian-made tanks in Cambodia S'AIGON (Renter 1 - South Vietnamese troops found fresh tank tracks today to confirm the presence of Soviet-made medium tanks in northeastern Cambodia, military sources said. The tracks were apparently made by North Vietnamese T-34 tanks, and were near a 250-ton dump of ammunition for the T-34's 85-millimetre gun found Tuesday in Cambodia's Ratan-kiri province, the sources said. On the two brief occasions that Soviet-made light tanks have appeared in South Vietnam they were used for shock effect on Special Forces encampments. The last time they appeared was more than 20 months ago. In the last three days, South Vietnamese forces totalling 6,300 men have entered Ratan-akiri, a province which was under unchallenged guerrilla control for mora than four months. The new drive into Ratanakiri from South Vietnam's central highlands is the first operation into northeast Cambodia since the joint U.S.-S'outh Vietnamese I operations in May and June. It is believed the new operation was launched to forestall any guerrilla drive into the cen-I Iral highlands, the region long I considered most likely to be the j scene of any new offensive, i A booby trap killed five ! American soldiers today as they | moved through foothills 42 miles southeast of Da Nang. ; American officers have be-i come so alarmed over a recent j rash of booby trap and mine deaths that they are offering cash rewards to peasants who tip them off to locations of the deadly devices.
