Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 1, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Thurtdgy, Octolttr 1, 1970 THE LETHMIDGE HKAI.D 19 Patrick Shocked At Rejection EDMONTON (CP) A. R. Patrick, Alberta minister at mines and minerals, said here he was "shocked" at the Na- tional Energy Board's rejec- tion of one of the five applica- tions to export natural gas. He was shocked that tbe ex- port recommendation by Con- solidated Natural Gas Co. Ltd. was turned down although tte company .had advanced "many millions of dollars" to other companies for exploratory gas drilling. The federal government an- nounced Tuesday it was ac- cepting all recommendations of the National Energy Boad in granting tbe export of 6.3 tril- lion cubic feet of natural gas to the United States in the next 15 to 20 years. Ottawa granted the full ex- port request for one company, Westcoast Transmission of Van- couver, granted three applica- tions from other companies and rejected the request of North- ern Natural Gas in its bid to export 1.5 trillion cubic feel through a subsidiary, Consoli dated Natural Gas of Calgary. Mr. Patrick said in an inter, view the NEB was aware that Consolidated had spent mil- lions of dollars on natural gts exploration programs winch had already resulted in discov- "I'm really concerned what will happen to that program now that the application has been rejected. I don't know the reason for it, but it is certainly quite a shock." NEW APPLICATION At Calgary meanwhile Con- solidated said it will reapply. In a statement issued today, company president Herbert M Sampson said the new applica- tion "will reflect Consoli dated's additional gas re- serves." "It would appear the deci- sion did not reflect the trillions of feet of reserves discovered in 1970, and as a result such discoveries were not included in the available surplus." Calgary Inquiry Witness Fined CALGARY (CP) A fine for contempt was imposed Wednesday by Mr. Justice W. G. Morrow as he continued a public inquiry into civic affairs of the last 10 years. Dennis Mclvor, a former city -cashier and a witness at the inquiry last week, admitted Wednesday he gave incorrect answers when he first testified. MISPLACED LOYALTY Last week he denied taking coins from the city, but Wed- .nesday he admitted ha had done so and .said he knew of others who had stolen. A. M.1 Harradence, counsel for Mr. Mclvor, said the false testimony was the result of "misplaced loyalty" and a lack of appreciation of the solemn- ity of the inquiry and the ser- iousness of perjury. Justice Morrow, of the North- west Territories court, gave Mr. Mclvor 30 days in which to pay the fine. In testimony Tuesday, a se- nior city administrator said too much emphasis has been given petty thievery by the in- quiry. Ian Forbes, commissioner of economic and community af- fairs, said the time has come to take a stand following last week's testimony of alleged thefts of cash from city hall. "An awful lot has been m in the press of petty thievery at intermittent times but this is all it be said. "I want to make clear that do not condone what has hap- pened. But far too much em- ihasis has been given to petty hievery and tills small' group s not representative of the to civic staff gen- erally. Outlining a series of recent operating improvements, he said security review is a con- tinuing process geared to the growth of Calgary. Changes in- cluded a centralization of ad- ministration about seven years ago, an external audit staff of nine persons compared with none several years ago, a re- organization of the cashier sec- ion three years ago and in- creased use of security agents at city hall. Police Get Pay Boost CALGARY (CP) A com pulsory arbitration board has awarded city policemen a 22.7- per-cent wage increase over a two-year contract, making the force one of the best paid in Western Canada. The award was the unanimous decision of the five-member board and brought an end to a contract dispute which lastec more than eight months. It gives the 600 members of the Calgary Police Association an increase of more than !1 per cent retroactive to Jan. 1, when their last contract expired. A first-class constable, a man with three years experience, will receive.S757 a month com- pared wiih S6S2 a month under the old contract. On Nov. 1 the wage will in- crease to a month and next April will rise to a month. During the negotiations, police sought a 20-per-cent in- crease in a one-year contract. They said part of thfi increase was needed to regain the wage position they lost in contracts in recent years. The city suggested a 7.6-per- cent increase before dispute was taken to arbitration in Au- gust Also included in the award were provisions for early re- tirement after 30 years exper- ience or at age 55.
