Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta October 0, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Oil-gas line damaged SHERWOOD PARK, (CP) A spokesman for Gulf Canada Ltd. says an oil -'gas pipeline damaged Tuesday by a caterpillar tractor should be back in operation Wednesday. Six families in the com- munity just east of Edmonton were warned to be prepared to evacuate because the pipeline was thought to carry a poisonous mixture. However the mixture was later determined to non poisonous, although highly volatile. The mishap occurred when a caterpillar clearing land for an oilfield leasing company poked a two square inch hole in the pipeline. Dent denies tax hike EDMONTON (CP) Mayor Ivor Dent Tuesday denied the existence of any report predicting 100 per cent increases in Edmonton's property taxes over the next four years. Aid. Cec Purves, a can- didate for mayor, said Mon- day the confidential report projects that by 1977 the city's property taxes will have to br- ing in revenues of million, compared with million this year. But Mayor Dent said the figures were nothing more than informal preliminary es- timates by'department heads. Disqualification sought EDMONTON (CP) T. M. Reed, a member of Strathcona county told a district court hearing that he was not present at a council session which dealt with the rezoning and subdivi- sion of his land. The court is hearing an application by H. on behalf of a group of county ratepayers, requesting that Mr. Reed be disqualified as a councillor because he voted on the rezoning and subdivision of one of his own quarter sec- tions southeast of Sherwood Park, a town on Edmonton's southeastern outskirts. The hearing was adjourned Tuesday to Oct. 17. Smaller centres backed MEDICINE HAT (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed says he is pleased to see the grow- ing maturity of residents in Calgary and Edmonton "who are coming to recognize that growth for growth's sake is not desirable. "He told the citizen of the year banquet that his govern- ment was committed, to balanced and decentralized growth, helping Alberta's smaller centres "grow to their full potential." As big metropolitan centres grow, they become more im- personal and there is a loss of privacy, he said. Mr. Lougheed said he recognizes that the province's smaller communities "want to preserve their wonderful way of life But they also want to see the development of opportunities that will enable their young people'to remain closer to home.

Indians lay plans for 'country estate' project CALGARY (CP) Two Al- berta cabinet ministers said Tuesday they would support a government policy making provincial programs available to Indians on Alberta Indian reserves. Highways Minister Clarence Copithorne and En- vironment Minister Bill Yurko told councillors, of the Sarcee Indian reserve that the the province's native people should be treated as equal citizens by the provincial government. The ministers, who were taking part in one of six tour- ing cabinet groups, agreed that "a false wall has been built between Indian people and the provincial government" because of federal jurisdiction for Indian affairs. -Mr. Copithorne, whose con- stituency includes the Sarcee reserve, said "reserves have prevented Indian people from becoming part of Alberta. It is my personal opinion that Indians should have the same rights as all Albertans. I think the influence of the federal government has been too great and has been a hinderance to good relations with the provincial government." Mr. Yurko said the province regards native people as "full citizens in matters of human concern" but agreed "there are problems when it comes to physical concerns." He said reserves are under federal jurisdiction and "the federal government keeps the provincial government off the reserve." Mr. Yurko said he would express the desire of the band to the cabinet and added: "I cannot see any reason why the province could not apply at least some of the programs on reserves im- mediately." He cautioned that Indians may have to assume more of a tax burden in return for greater provincial benefits. He said Indians now pay no provincial property tax.

It was the second trip to an Indian reserve in as many days for the cabinet group, which also included Consumer Affairs Minister Bob Dowling. The group had its stormiest meeting oi the tour Monday at Morley, when it was ac- cused of forcing welfare on a band of the Stony Indian tribe by flooding prime grazing land in the Rocky mountains.
