Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 40-THE LETHbRIDGE HERALD WedMiday, October 2, 1974 ink No support for rail takeover Coal industry comes under fire REGINA (CP) The premiers of the three other western provinces are not ready to support a Saskatchewan suggestion that the western operations of Canada's two national railways be acquired by the western provinces, Saskatchewan Premier Allan Blakeney says. Answering reporters' ques- tions about Friday's conference of Western Canadian premiers, Mr. Blakeney said the other premiers felt the suggestion to be "an interesting idea that just premature." The premier also said that the Saskatchewan government was unsuccessful in getting the other premiers to agree to a recommendation that federal legislation be. amended to permit provincial regulations of foreign ownership of land.

The authority says the interim report, on the Smoky River Basin, should not be taken as indicating final recommendations that will go into a final report to be presented to Environment Minister Bill Yurko within a few days.

The interim report says sur- face mining historically has conflicted with every other possible land use. "The operations are un- sightly, contribute to water quality degradation, destroy ungulate range and timber. Thus we have the gaunt spectre of a non-renewable resource extraction which haunts the existence of every renewable resource in the area of operations." The authority says "one is hard-pressed to conceive- of any method of enjoying a sur- face coal mine in a wilderness setting." The report says exploration trenches, some as deep as 50 feet, have become water courses and the eroded sludge is "a reminder of man's contempt for nature." The authority supports a new wildland recreation area land use classification in the interim report and says a detailed recommendation will be contained in the fina) report. The interim report says there is a strong public ex- pression against unrestricted use of all-terrain vehicles. "Accordingly, a system of specified use areas combined with required regulations appears to be the only course which we can follow." The authority says caribou and grizzly bear are becoming scarcer in the Smoky River basin and in need of protec- tion. The animals required areas where they were free from man's influence and the activities of man would have to be controlled if wildlife was to survive. The report also has some harsh criticism for the Alberta Resources Railway. "Some of the history of road and rail construction which is shameful by today's standards should not be allowed to reoc- it says.
