Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIOGE HERALD Saturday, Oetobtr 10, 1970- Natural Gas Sale To U.S. Unwise Says NDP Chief The billion sale of Alberta natural gas to the U.S. was un- wise, Grant Notley, Alberta NDP leader, told The Herald in an interview. ".Toe Greene (federal energy minister) should have obtained some concessions. He should have followed the National En- ergy Board suggestion that the U.S. open its doors to Canadi- an Mr. Notley said. The U.S. lifted its oil import barrier to allow Canada to ex- port barrels a day more. The barrier was raised from about barrels of Cana- dian oil a day to bar- rels. The gas sale will do little for Alberta citizens, he said. Ac- cording to a provincial govern- ment spokesman Alberta will realize only million in royalties over the 15 years of the contract. "Not much when you consid- er the sale was for billion." The sale is going to result in increased gas prices to Alberta consumers, Mr. Notley said. California already gets Alberta gas cheaper than Albertans. Restricting gas .exports would help entice secondary indus- tries to move into Canada. Before the export was grant- ed it should have been fully BUSINESS JOTTINGS Seventeen insurance repre- sentatives from southern Al- berta .have received the 1970 National Quality Award.

Many of the political leaders are drifters. They let Canadi- ans enjoy the shorHerm bene- fits instead of considering the long term. "The U.S. asked and it got. It is part of their plan for a continental energy policy. They plan on getting this policy piecemeal because if they go after it all at once they will be defeated. "This is just the start. More will come later." Mr. Notley said a national energy policy should be estab- lished first. The forthcoming provincial election in Ontario will prob- ably be the most important ever. The central aim of the election will be the issue of foreign ownership he said. Mr. Notley said he still has had no reaction from Premier Harry Strom on his proposal for the establishment of an all- party committee to examine other provincial legislation and recommend legislation for Al- berta which would put spending curbs on candidates in provin- cial and- municipal elections. He forecast 20 Social Credi- tors "at the most" will be elected in the next provincial election, expected some time next year. The Liberals are not likely to run any candidates, he said, and as the NDP is the only real alternative to present pol- icy, it stands a good chance of winning some seats. The Alberta NDP will be going after the Liberal votes, he said. Most, if, not all ridings, will have an NDP candidate in the next provincial election, Mr. Notley said. "We have 13 can- didates nominated, the same as the Social Credit, and five more will be nominated next week. By the end of this year we will have 35 to 40 candidates nomi- nated." The Social Credit party "will die a natural death within three he forecast. Gallup polls in Alberta are "disastrous !or the Social Credit party. "Social Credit has Pearson- itis. They're accident prone. They stumble from one crisis to another. They've made a lot of stupid moves, especially in the last six months." As examples he cited the pol- lution schmozzle, leasing of Cy- press Hills for oil exploration, dismissal of Jack Day from the Alberta Censorship Board after courts found him not guilty of sex offences. The government should either drop or proceed with charges it laid against four men who were involved in disrupting a CLC convention in Edmonton and who subsequently publish- ed what was considered defam- atory comments. The atlorney- general's stand in ordering a stay of proceedings "is inde- fensible. I support the Civil Li- terties Association on this mat- ter that proceedings either be dropped or carried out." Mr. Notley announced the an- nual NDP convention will be teld in Edmonton Feb. 4-6 fea- turing candidates for the na- tional leadership as speakers. Theme will be on an energy policy and its implications for Alberta and Canada.

Indications are serious eon- sequences could arise in the Montana and Alberta natural gas industries following a re- cent decision by Canada's Na- tional Energy Board to reject a bid to export Alberta natural gas. The NEB, concerned that the rapidly escalating Canadian demand for natural gas is ex- ceeding the proven reserves, recently considered five gas export applications. It reduced the amount of export gas sought and reduced the period for export on four and com- pletely rejected the other. The major victim was Con- solidated Natural Gas Ltd. and Consolidated Pipe Lines Corn- piny which lost a bid to ex- port 1.5 trillion cubic feet of gas over 25 years. n o n s o 1 idated's application was rejected because the com- pany does not serve Canadians as well as export customers. The board declared: "Where a choice has to be made be- tweea licensing exports by a project wholly oriented to ex- port and a project which serves Canadian customers and ex- port customers, if all other fac- tors were equal, the choice would have to be in favor of the project serving Canadians as well as export customers." The board decided it would only license exports totalling 6.3 trillion cubic feet instead of the 8.9 tcf requested in the five applications. The shortage meant the board had to choose between the applicants and re- duce the other volumes re- quested. The length of the con- tracts of three were reduced five to seven years with one 18- year permit granted. Consoli- dated was rejerted. An inestimable loss of funds to the state of Montana, many Montana landowners and U.S. gas producers has resulted from that decision. Consolidated's application for the export was made on behalf of its parent company North- ern Natural Gas Company of Omaha. PIPELINE PLANNED Northern had planned to build a pipeline from near the Alberta Saskatchewan Mon- tana border to near Minneapo- lis, Minn, to carry Alberta and Montana gas to that central U.S. state. A line from Mon- tana's Tiger Eidge gas field would join the main line near Swift Current, Sask. Landowners in the Montana gas areas affected by the NEB decision would have received one-eighth of the market value of the gas taken out. The state loses out net proceeds and state income taxes from any pro uction. The federal govern- ment also loses as it shares in production. Had the application been approved by the NEB it would have spurred develop- ment of natural gas reserves in northern Montana. All is not lost for that pro- ject, however. Consolidated (Northern) will file a new ap- plication with the NEB reflect- ing the company's additional gas reserves. Following the NEB decision, a Consolidated spokesman, ex- pressing "extreme disappoint- ment" said the board's decision appeared not to reflect the tril- lions of feet of reserves dis- covered in the current year. The company now has more than three trillion cubic feet of proven reserves in Alberta and t h r e e-ctuarters of a trillion cubic feet in Montana and North -Dakota that have no ac- cess 'to markets without con- struction of the proposed pipe- line to Minneapolis. The Independent Petroleum Association of Canada said rejection of Consolidated's ap- plication serves to delay order- ly development and marketing of existing proven ga1' reserves and introduces a new and dis- turbing concept which, if per- petuated, serve to thwart potential competition in the or- derly expansion of markets for Canadian natural gas. A Canadian pipeline execu- tive said the rejection is going to be a serious matter for a number of companies which City Pianist Wins Top Alta.

LETHBRIDGE MONUMENTAL AND TILE WORKS "We Havo Boon Satisfying Customers for Over.60 Years" 325 8lh St. S., lethbridge Phone raising for a proposed golf course and recreation centre for young people in Lethbridge. Now legally able to accept donations for the project and issue receipts for income tax purposes, the association can now implement plans that in- clude cash donations, as well as those in the form of ma- terial or labor. First suggested early this spring by Reg Turner, princi- pal of Winston Churchill High School, the concept of a golf course specifically for persons in the 35 to 25 age group has now grown to include social, recreational and entertainment activities in the planned club- house and outdoors. The site for the golf course is just north-east of the Channel 7 television station. Plans call lor it to be built entirely with voluntary funds and labor and to be run by the young people themselves. expected to deliver gas to Con- solidated. The Canadian Petroleum As- sociation supported all five ap- plications and estimated that sufficient surplus gas reserves existed to 'satisfy all (he ap- plicants. The association felt free competition for gas plies which would have result- ed from approval of all the ap- plications would stimulate the incentive to find and develop new Alberta gas supplies. The board also said that future large increases in ex- ports are to be possible, the first prerequisite is an creased rate of discovery." Export markets are increas- ing because t h e U.S. faces a gas shortage, perhaps even an energy shortage. Montana's locked-in gas re- serves still have a chance ol getting to market. Perhaps the new reserves figure by Con' solidated and the new applica' tion will bear fruit While the application of Con- solidated and Northern was re- jected, Trans Canada Pipe- lines' bid was approved. It has a line running parallel to thf one proposed by Northern anc terminating about .the samfi place. Trans-Canada's bid for 2.3 tcf over 25 years was re- duced to 1.9 tcf over 20 years The Alberta Oil and Gas Con servation Board previously gave Northern permission to export 1.4 tcf pending NEB ap- proval, which was not granted Montana didn't lose out all around. Canadian Montana Pipeline Co., a wholly-own- ed subsidiary of Montana Pow- er Co., was authorized to ex- port 56 billion cubic feet of Al berta gas over 15 years com pared with 86 billion cubic feet over 23 years as requested Montana Power's daily intake from Alberta will now be boost ed to 80 million cubic feet a day.

Sheep Population On Rise In South By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Fun Writer Dr. John Vesely, sheep and dairy geneticist at the Leth- bridge Research Station, said here that he believes sheep numbers in southern Alberta are on the rise, but sheep ranch- ing as it has been known is a thing of the past. "There is a good future in said Dr. Vesely, "and the potential of the Canadian sheep market is excellent." (Canada imported 60 million pounds of both mutton and wool in 1989.) Dr. Vesely believes the suc- cess or failure of southern Alberta's sheep industry will depend on management. "Sheep can be a strong econo- mic unit when combined with some other phase of agriculture likei cattle or grain." One generally successful method of sheep management according to Dr. Vesely is to have sheep follow cattle on grazing land. "The sheep will eat many grasses and plants which cat- tle will not he said, "and in a follow-up program to cat- tle, can fully utilize the food value of a pasture." The main complaint against sheep seems to be that they overgraze a pasture. "This is an unfounded prej- udice against sheep, and due totally to poor land manage- ment." It is true said Dr. Vesely, that sheep require more atten- tion than cattle, and manage- ment has to be better. in- dicated that no part of agricul- ture is easy, but the potential is there for anyone willing to take the time. He warns against newcomers to the business though, saying that too many people go into sheep raising with the same at- titudes used on cattle. Some of the people entering the business who know nothing about sheep and did not take the time to learn have met dis- aster, in some cases losing al- most all of a flock. Lambing is the most critical period of sheep raising, when proper health procedures and cleanliness is vital. Dr. Vesely cited one example that many sheepmen overlook. Following birth, the lamb is left with a distended naval, leaving the equivalent of an open sore on the young animal which is subject to predatory insects and infections. "Many lamb losses could be he said, "If a very simple, disinfecting procedure was followed when the lambs are in this vulnerable state." Dr. Vesely also commented on marketing, saying a sheep- man is wiser to completely fin- ish lambs for market rather than selling as feeders. "The extra time and feed re- quired to do this is not great, and profits can be much im- proved." Cablevision Moves Office Cablevision Lethbridge Ltd. was expected to move its offices this weekend from its present location on 4th Ave. S. to 101U 3rd Ave. S. The move will give the com- pany "considerably more according to manager Doug Shackleford. Facilities will be coordinated on one floor. The new building will allow room for offices, tech- nical shop, cable and amplifier storage and vehicle storage. Oablevision employs eight persons and last December em- barked on a program of locally- originated shows. The schedule for the 1970-71 season has not been completed although it has been indicated that the company, owned by Agri Industries Ltd., will form the pivot for a mini-cable sys- tem into Saskatchewan and eventually British Columbia. A small, 192-square-foot stud- io may be developed in the new headquarters for use in local originations. The 4th Ave. S. building will be used as head office of Leth- bridge Theatres Ltd. .which has formerly been housed in the Capitol Theatre.
