Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta inunaay, uciooar 4, me LCinBHIDUe HERALD 29 Geoloeist chastises Alberta Crude oil shortage seen by 1985 KDMONTON (CP) By 1985 Canada will be importing more than one million barrels of crude oil a day west of the National Energy Board's Ot- tawa Vallev line, savs Mel Hurtig, chairman of the Com- mittee lor an Independent Canada. Mr. Hurtig was quoting from a letter written by F. K. North, one ol Canada's I o r e in o s t petroleum geologists, to Bill Dickie, Alberta minister of mines and minerals Mr North, a professor at Carleton University in Ot- tawa, said "by 1985. Canada's domestic production of conventional oil will, in all probability, be trivial. So more than two million barrels a dav ol domestic demand must then be satisfied either by tar sands oil. or by im- ports." He warned Mr. Dickie not to be hasty in allocating all oil trom the oil sands to U S. markets Mr Hurtig quoted from the letter following an address by Ian McDougall. a specialist in natural resources law at Dalhousie University in Halilax. to a group ot CIC members Mr McDougall. m an inter- view following his talk, said Canada's aim should be self- sufficiency in energy The export ol oil and gas must be reduced and ultimate- ly stopped il this country is not to put its own economic well-being into jeopardy, he said country has exported too much energy, too quickly lor too little." he said. The direct result of this policy is a pending energy shortage in Canada and high prices. He chastised Alberta for go- ing to bat lor the international oil mdustrv and (or not acting in the best interest of Canada Alberta is not a good Cana- dian it il allows, even encourages the export ot encrgv if this action jeopar- dises the welfare of the countrv. Mr McDougall said Monetary pact unlikely before LONDON (CP) There is little or no chance of agree- ment being reached on all ma- jor aspects of world monetary reform by the recently-set deadline of .July 31. 1974, says Canadian Finance Minister John Turner But it is essential that governments come to some accord on those areas of inter- national finance where ministers seem to be approaching a consensus, he added In an interview Wednesday with The Canadian Press. Turner said the issues which seem most likely to be settled within the next year include the manner in which exchange rates among currencies can be adjusted and altered in orderly ways as well as the future role of special drawing rights (SDRS) and gold But such matters as the restoration of the dollar's con- vertibility into gold or other assets and ways of liquidating dollar balances held abroad would have to await elimina- tion of the U S balance of payments deficit That might take several years. Turner said AGREES WITH BRITAIN "The committee of 20 (fi- nance ministers from 20 coun- tries, including Canada) will be meeting throughout the next year and it's my personal Iceling that at the final meeting in .July we should follow the British proposal ;md lock ourselves in a room until we come up with a reform package If Turner's prediction is ful- filled and an agreement on the areas he stipulates can be reached by July dead- line set by ministers at an In- ternational Monetary Fund meeting in Nairobi last it would be a con- siderable step forward in rebuilding the international finance structure Among other things, it would mean that the world's leading currencies would return to a system of fixed values in relation to each other as opposed to the current arrangement which leaves them free to fluctuate in response to market forces I would also involve an agreement among governments to change their currency values when some agreed indicator showed that these had become unrealistic BARS DISRUPTION7 The aim of such an accom- modation would be to prevent sudden shifts of investment capital when speculators believe a currency may be showing signs of weakness or undue strength. But Turner left open the question of whether Canada would be prepared to re-peg the dollar at a fixed rate as part ol a reform package after having allowed it to float for several vears "The agreement now being discussed makes provision for currency floating in some situations under the supervi- sion of the International Monetary Fund." he said, "and Canada can live with this kind of arrangement." Speculation among British of- ficials is that Canada has no intention of re-pegging the dollar in the near future Turner, who stopped in Lon- don for a Wednesday meeting with Anthony Barber, chan- cellor of the exchequer, said the role of SDRs as a primary reserve asset should also be settled by next July. These special drawing rights are a kind of paper reserve which are given a specified value and which take the place of gold as the central unit of value held by the world's central banks. National currencies, in turn, would eventually all be convertible by the central banks into SDRs FEARS EXCLUSION Turner said he planned to stress to Barber the concern ol Canada that it might be ex- cluded from any future mone- tary arrangement between the U.S. and the European Common Market. He said he was not particu- larly concerned that Canada had been excluded from the new formation of five big states-the U S Britain, West Germany, France and which will meet periodically during the next year in an effort to reach agreement structural reforms 'Run-down' 24 Sussex mansion gets facelift New job Maj.-Gen.
