Opposition unites on wiretap battle By PETER LLOYD OTTAWA The wire- tap bill is only days away from Commons approval but the op- position renewed notice Thursday that it will fight to the finish on several controversial amendments. Both the Conservatives and New Democrats dug in their heels on whether persons bugged by police should be in- formed they had been under electronic surveillance. Justice Minister Otto Lang introduced an amendment Thursday to remove a provi- sion saying persons who have been under electronic sur- veillance should receive notice within 90 days of the bug being removed. The two major opposition parties stood together against the as they have against another Lang proposal that indirect evidence from illegal taps be admissable as court evidence. If they maintain they will defeat amendments proposed by the minority Lib- eral government in voting scheduled for Tuesday. DEBATE ENDED Debate on the some sponsored by the government and some by the ended Thursday night with all-party agree- ment to defer voting. The in original would ban private wiretapping and require police to have written permission from a judge to conduct electronic surveillance. A compromise was appoved Thursday between Mr. Lang and John Diefenbaker Prine on a move by the former prime minister to remove a provision that would allow emergency police wiretapping without prior judicial approval. Under the a judge could grant emergency permission to bug without a written application from an attorney-general or solicitor- or their as long as a written submission was made to him within 36 hours of a verbal application.

Meetings were lo have been hold Thursday afternoon to my knowledge they were Oil spill plan shapes up By IAIN HUNTER Herald Ottawa Bareai' OTTAWA A coastal oil spill contingency plan worked out by Canadian and American officials has been submitted to Ottawa and Washington for final it was learned Thursday. The tentative agreement reached Wednesday sets out demarcation lines on both the East and West coast ex- tending out to sea beyond the 12-mile limit. To toe north of this Canada would bear the cost of cleanup and damage caused by oil white to the south of the the U.S. would provide the funding. The countries bearing the cost would then seek to of the ships causing the pollution. The settling of demarcation lines on both coasts and the funding of oil spill contingency measures were the only two questions left to be agreed upon by negotiation between the U.S. and Canada. Agree- ment already had been reach- ed on navigational and clean-up plans. It was learned that the demarcation lines running out beyond the 12-mile limit do not follow lines of but veer slightly south. These were the lines proposed by and accepted by the Americans after some delay. The funding principle being proposed to the two governments that the tion occurs bear the cost of cleanup and damage initially is the same as that contain- ed in the Great Lakes Waters agreement between Canada and the U.S. Ottawa and un- der a timetable agreed to by the are to accept or reject the proposals within 10 days. Environment Minister Jack in an interview confirmed that of- ficials from both countries had on development of a coastal oil spill contingency plan on both coasts. He said that both countries have agreed tentatively on the establishment of demarcation lines which he said was main in the Gov't studies extending oil pipeline to Montreal OTTAWA The inter- provincial crude oil pipeline from Alberta could be extend- ed to Montreal from either its major eastern or from Sault Ste. Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said Thursday night. Intel-provincial Pipe Lines operator of the will present a specific.pro- on one of the extension options at a meeting with gov- ernment officials he told the Commons mis- cellaneous committee. He did not specify which route will be studied. He said the .government is considering construction of a 30-inch extension to make western oil available in the Montreal market and reduce eastern reliance on imported oil. The pipeline passes through Michigan relatively near Sault Ste. Marie on its way to Sar- nia. Sarnia is con- sidered the most likely choice lor the starting point of the new extension. The cost of a jine from Sault Ste. Marie would be substantially higher because of Northern Ontario's rugged terrain. Mr. Macdonald said it prob- ably will be next spring at the the frost construction could begin. Fuel shortage Canada may help friendly nations By DAVE BLAIKIE OTTAWA The degree of sympathy Canada has for other countries may decide how great oil shortages will be this winter in and east of the Ottawa River valley. Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said Thursday he personally will not take a dog-in-the- manger if friendly countries suffer shortages far more severe than Canada. prepared to be as helpful as we can at this he told the Commons miscellaneous committee. In he said Canada would share the world oil shortage with other countries and see that none suffers an extremely acute shortage while another slides by with only minor interruptions. But sharing would have to be arranged by a responsible international body such as the Organization of Economic Co- operation and Development So he there has been no agreement among OECD which include on how best to cope with the world eriergy crisis. He said earlier Thursday that sharing the shortage would be a tough policy deci- sion because it would mean increasing Canadian shor- tages. BE CHARITABLE Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield also has said as a member of the international should take a charitable at- titude. The government estimates a potential crude oil shortage of 20 per cent or more in eastern Canada this winter but hopes the figure will be lower. Some such as are suffering far worse. Mr. Macdonald. mentioned Sweden repeatedly as one ex- ample of a country Canada would help if possible. he fielded a flood of opposition questions on the situation facing eastern Canadian residents who rely on imported oil. He was accused by Alvin Hamilton Moose of leaving southeastern Quebec and Atlantic residents to the mercy of international supply companies. CAN CUT SUPPLY All firms supplying eastern refineries with overseas crude have clauses allowing them to reduce deliveries when short- ages or other events beyond their control occur. Mr. Macdonald has said the world oil shortage may lead to special contract clauses being reducing shipments to eastern Canada. Mr. Hamilton urged him to declare unilaterally that Can- ada will hold Canadian subsi- diaries of supply companies responsible if deliveries are cut without agreement by a majority of OECD members. If such a statement would amount to more than empty Mr. Macdonald he would be willing to make it. But political grandstanding would have little effect because the supply companies operate out- side Canadian jurisdiction. This exchange occurred dur- ing committee meeting where pressed for clarification of po- lential shortages. EXTREME VIEW Mr. Macdonald said 200.000 barrels a with normal imports of the most extreme estimate of shortages. Arab production cuts account for barrels of the total and the rest is the unable to meet their com- mitments. He said this information was compiled by a technical liaison committee made up of government and National Energy Board plus reasonable and knowledgeable industry representatives. Peter Bawden said the only known shortage so far is barrels daily in normal Arab shipments. This should be more than offset by two alternate supply routes from western Canadian oil fields. The government has said it can send barrels daily to eastern markets by the TransMountain pipeline- Panama Canal tanker route and another lo by rail and highway from the Sar- nia. terminus of the interprovincial crude pipeline. Mr. Macdonald disagreed. The threat of reduced ship- ments from supply companies remains because of the general world oil he said.
