Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, October 5, 1973 Government rights 1'ietniei Petei Lougheed has announc- ed that a gas and oil royalty will be implemented Until the details are known judgment should be withheld However the confrontation between the provincial and federal governments continues It is being rehned and the issues somewhat nairowed but still Uieie is no meeting of the minds I lie federal intervention in oil export pricing is understandable The right indeed the duh oi tne ledeial author) to set up the tules for international liading (diinot be questioned The im- position ot an expoil tax is legitimate Phis tax increases the puce to foreign pmehaseis and that too is in order The w oi lei s major oil exporters are doing it and s prices should go up con euiienlh This countiv is in no position to sell its el.mmishing oil resources at k ss than lair maiket pi ices The Mberta "over mm nt set a good piecedent when it insisted on higher pi ices for Alberta gas But the position ot the Albeitd govern- ment vis-j-vis Ottawa is not without mont It is now well established that thoie was little meaningful con- sultation between Ottawa and Ed- montejn beioie the new federal policy was announced although there is a federal right to infer ene most of the oil and gas in ques- tion is owned by the province and as agents toi the ownei it is the provincial governments right to control the development and marketing A great jutt ol this provinces prosperity has come from the gas and oil ownership md the continued prosperity depends on it That is not to say that unrestricted development is necessarily in the pi en me e s best interest but the Alberta gou'inments interpretation ot the pioMnce s best interest should have a strong beating on federal pohcv A correct action The sUitie that has followed Canada s iceogmtion ol the new government in lule is somewhat surprising It seems to be1 (ominu I
