By that time, Alberta's gas production would begin to decline, but an all-Canadian pipeline from the Mackenzie Delta could be used to supply Canadian requirements. The forum was sponsored by Canadians for Responsible Northern Development, which seeks to protect the North from rapid industrial develop- ment and opposes early construction of a Mackenzie Valley pipeline. Dr. Helliwell said increased gas production in Alberta would be preferable to pipeline proposals by Cana- dian Arctic Gas Study Ltd. and Alberta Gas Trunk Line Co. Ltd. CAGS proposes to transport both Alaskan and Canadian Mackenzie Delta gas by a Mackenzie Valley pipeline by the end of this decade. EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Motor Association asked the provincial govern- ment Wednesday not to allow municipalities to levy special taxes on motor vehicles. The request, one of 14 resolutions presented to the provincial cabinet, was sub- mitted previously in 1972 by the AMA, which represents more than Alberta motorists. The brief expressed concern about suggestions that municipalities might impose a tax against owners of motor vehicles within municipal jurisdiction. The AMA said such taxation could lead to inequities and added that motor vehicle owners already contribute heavily through registration fees and gasoline taxes. A program to educate the public in the metric system also was encouraged by the motorists' association. The government was asked to place signs along Highway 2 showing distances in metric measurements as well as miles. In a series of resolutions to improve highway safety, the AMA asked for: passing lanes; warning of no- passing zones ahead; MANY VACUUMS Exactly 96.9 per cent of all homes wired for electricity have vacuum cleaners. government priority to snow removal at highway intersections; Amendment to the Highway Traffic Act giving right-of-way to vehicles on streets or highways instead of vehicles on service roads. The AMA also suggested more effort to reduce ac- cidents at railway crossings and called for signs to inform motorists more adequately about the hours in which speed limits take effect in school zones.

About 12.500 survey sheets have been sent to association members in Alberta. "Government legislation provides protection for adults in passenger cars, but children who are involuntary daily passengers in school buses do not have the same a letter attached to the survey sheet says. "While the government regulations insure mandatory compliance to approved specifications in the manufac- ture of automobiles, stan- dards for school bus manufac- turers are voluntary." Questions include bow much time children spend on a bus each day, the time of depar- ture from home and arrival from school, and whether transportation makes it a problem for those children who wish to participate in extra-curricular work. Safety questions include whether the bus is adequately ventilated and heated, whether seat heights are com- fortable, and whether seat belts would be desirable. Results of the survey will be sent to a national committee on school bos safely and to the public vehicles section of the department of highways, which is responsible for school bus regulations.
