He described Alber- ta's oil and natural gas reserves as negotiating tools. They could also be the basis of a world scale petrochemical industry which the provincial government would like to see established. Both these considerations were much on the provincial government's mind when it refused to give in to Ottawa's attempts to assume control over Alberta's energy Mr. Hyndman said.

They would not pay Alberta Teachers Association fees and would not Rain ex- perience increments. The PEP teachers would receive a maximum salary of per month. Trustee Steve Vaselenak suggested the government would be much wiser if it allocated the being used to hire teachers under the PEP to school boards so they could hire more full-time teachers.
