Among those facing the camera are Rene Brunell, Ontario; Marc LaLonde, Ottawa, and Claude Castonguay, Quebec. Early pipeline start urged Bv KEN POLE OTTAWA (CP) All levels of government will have to be careful not to repeat the mis- takes that led to the construc- tion of the WAC Bennett dam in British Columbia and the resultant low water levels in Alberta's Lake Athabasca, the environment department said Friday The warning was in a report entitled the Peace-Athabasca Delta, a Canadian Resources, compiled after a study of the dam's ecological effects Construction of the dam on the Peace River in northeastern B C resulted in a serious decline in Lake Athabasca and was detrimen- tal to the livelihood of Indians who made their living from the delta "Decision and action for the management of our natural resources become lost in a maze of discussion and red tape Without a more appropriate framework, the possibility of future problems such as occurred m the delta still the repot t says "The key lies in a framework within which positive action can be readily taken, one in which local problems are dealt with locally, regional problems regionally and national prob- lems nationally The department exonerated the builders of the dam to a limited degree, because they were "answering the needs of society for power to support our economic growth and light our homes However, "little attention was given to the possible effects on downstream ecology, for the en- vironmental concerns of the seventies were only then beginning to appear on the horizon The environment depart- ment called for balanced resource development and en- vironmental protection because "major de- velopments, if not properly planned, can greatly change our renewable resources "When it is considered that the Mackenzie River system, of which the Peace-Athabasca delta is a part, is the largest in Canada the wisdom of mak- ing strong provisions for its stewardship may be seen The delta was described as an irreplacable international- national and provincial internationally because of its importance to the migratory bird cycle. OTTAWA (CP) V L Horte of Toronto, president of Canadian Arctic Gas Study Ltd said Monday that without an early start on an Arctic gas pipeline the country risks running short of natural gas by 1979 Mr Horte told an energy symposium held by the Royal Society of Canada that de- mand for natural gas will ex- ceed supplies from Western Canada for the first time in 1979 By 1987 that shoitage would rise to about 15 per cent of predicted demand Mr Horte s firm, a con- sortium of 28 production and pipeline companies, wants to build a pipeline from the Arc- tic gasfields through the Mackenzie Valley to Alberta But even if the company makes its application this fall for federal government per- mission to build the line, con- struction could not start before 1976-77 Mr Horte said Assuming no delays that meant gas would start flowing from the Mackenzie Delta by mid-1978 and from Alaska by mid-1979 ECONOMIST DISAGREES But John Helhwell of the For Safety's Sake Buckle Up Baby, Too!
