Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Under the deme By THE CANADIAN PRESS Freight rates and pensions Wednesday, October 24, 1973-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-j Man to man talks Harry Strom, former Alberta premier, has called for a "statesmanlike approach" to resolve the province's differences with the federal government over energy Mr Strom a member of the opposition front bench, told the Legislature Premier Peter Lougheed should talk directly with Prime Minister Trudeau about the controver- sy 'I suggest what we are witnessing now and I deplore it is an attempt to present to the public the fact that there is a real confronta- tion taking place within the energy field. "And I say as kindly as I can, Mr Premier, that in my view this calls for a statesmanlike approach where we are prepared to sit down and discuss it in the most open manner possible The Social Credit MLA for Cypress, prefaced his remarks by saying he sup- ports the government's recent moves on energy 100 per cent Tax could drop Bill Dickie. Alberta mines and minerals minister, says Tuesday the federal govern- ment would drop the federal sales tax of 2 4 cents on each gallon of gasoline if sincere about lowering the cost of petroleum products to the Canadian consumer Mr Dickie said the province Discrimation charge Alberta is investigating Quebec's exports of hydroelectric power and the Maritime provinces exports of refined petroleum products to back up its contention that it is being discriminated against says Premier Peter Lougheed He told the Legislature Ads not needed The use of newspapers for advertisements by people in- tending to change their name will not be required under a bill introduced to the Legislature The new Change Of Name Act introduced by Health Minister Neil Crawford, allows for only one advertise- ment in The Alberta Gazette to fulfill legal requirements In addition persons who might be "unduly prejudiced" or embarassed by even one advertisement will be allowed to waive that requirement if given permission by the supreme court or if the change is minor GENERAL FARM Presents The Weather SUNRISE THURSDAY 8-08 SUNSET High Low Pr Lethbridge Pincher Creek Medicine Hat Edmonton Grande Prairie Banff Calgary Victoria Penticton Prince George Kamloops Vancouver Saskatoon Regina Winnipeg Toronto Ottawa Montreal Quebec St John s Halifax Charlottetown Fredencton Rome Pans London Berlin Amsterdam Moscow Stockholm Tokyo Honolulu FORECAST Lethbridge Today and Thursday Mostly sunny Brisk west winds Highs 50-55 both days Lows 35-40 Calgary-Medicine Hat Today Cloudy with fog patches this morning becom- ing sunny this afternoon Highs 45-50 Lows 25-30 Thur- sday Sunny becoming cloudy in the afternoon Ramshowers in a few localities Highs near 50 Columbia Kootenay Region Today Cloudy with few periods of ram Thursday Cloudy with sunny periods Highs both days near 50 Over- night lows 30 to 35 MONTANA East of Continental Partly cloudy and cool west few showers east today with gusty southwest winds along the east slopes of the Rockies Mostly fair tonight Scattered showers mostly mountains Thursday Continued cool Highs both days 55 to 65 Lows tonight 30s West of Continental Divide Cloudy today rnd Thursday Widely scattered showers to- day increasing tonight and Thursday Little temperature change High today 50s Lows tonight 30s Linden Trailer TheTOUGHEST 5th WHEEL TRAILER on the market today! see it now at...

energy policies Mr Dickie said outside the Legislature the cost involved in the federal government's decision to drop import tariffs on petroleum products other than crude oil is minimal OTTAWA (CP) Rub an MP from a region outside the central Canada industrial area and he will complain about rail service He will talk of dis- criminatory freight rates, lack of boxcars, poor road beds and rotten service Probably he also will la- ment what he calls downgrading of passenger service and, if he is a New Democrat, he almost certain- ly will mention pensions and wages So it was in the Commons this week as MPs, one after another, registered com- plaints and reiterated arguments as the sparsely- attended House dragged through another day on the CNR financing bill Debate will continue today on the bill to authorize the Crownowned railway to make capital expenditures of 5 million this year and up to million during the first half of next year The bill also provides for loans to Air Canada The bill has been before the Commons off and on since last spring It is expected to get second reading and to provinces such as Quebec can export their natural resources or byproducts without federal interference On the other hand, he said the federal government has interfered with Alberta's ex- ports of crude oil by imposing a 40 cents-a-barrel tax on them Tories ask for By PAUL JACKSON OTTAWA The second de- mand within a week that Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau fire Energy Minister Donald Macdonald from his controversial portfolio was made in the House of Com- mons by yet another Alberta MP Gordon Towers Deer) told Mr Trudeau that Mr Macdonald regarded his energy confrontation with the province as a "ball game" sn which he had already "struck out" on two occasions "If he strikes out a third time can we have your assurance he will be out9" The Alberta MP asked Mr Trudeau Speaker Lucien Lamoureux ruled Mr Towers' question out of order, but the demand brought a bout of desk thump- ing applause from Conser- vative benches and smiles and chuckles in Liberal govern- ment ranks It is just one week ago since Calgary North MP Eldon Woolliams pleaded with Finance Minister John Turner to take over negotiations with Alberta from Mr Macdonald because the energy minister's "inflammatory statements'" were making any chance of swift agreement between Ot- tawa and the province bleaker by the day Mr Towers said he feared a reconciliation between the two parties may soon become impossible un- less Mr Macdonald changes his attitude or unless the prime minister fires him from the now sensitive portfolio In the Commons, the 41- year-old energy minister brought gasps of astonishment forth from Alberta MPs when he again said Syncrude Canada Ltd officials had told him they did not need special exemptions from the oil ex- port tax in order to make their gigantic billion tar sands plant economically viable Mr Macdonald made the original statement in the House last week, causing Syncrude president Frank' Spragms to immediately retort that Mr Macdonald was "jumping the gun" by coming to such an assump- tion and that the minister had no grounds whatsoever for making such a statement Alberta MPs, the Alberta provincial government and the company have been vigorously asking the federal government to excuse the new project from any special tax- es But Mr Macdonald again said the impression he got from company officials ex- cluding Mr Spragms was that Syncrude didn't want any special concessions The Syncrude hassle was what Mr Towers says is the energy ministers second "strike out" in the ball game, the first being his admittance that he failed to live up to a written pledge of "co- operation and collaboration" in energy matters between Ot- tawa and Alberta Mr Towers suggested to Mr Trudeau that if Mr Mac- donald strikes out for a third time when he meets top Alberta government officials in Edmonton Oct 29 then the prime minister should have no alternative but to switch him to a less sensitive portfolio to prevent more harm to federal- provincial relations The House heard com- plaints about rail service in southwestern and Northern Ontario, northern Saskatchewan and the West generally Jonn nouriguez (NDP-Nickel Belt) suggested the government spend billion to straighten be sent to committee for detailed study The House then will con- sider a number of un- controversial bills A bill exempting certain religious groups from Canada Pension Plan payments will be considered Shortage of boxcars plagues Grit minister rail lines He said

Hotel in Saskatoon Don Blenkarn (PC-Peel South) took sorr.e roundhouse swings at directors of the rail- way as well as those of Air Canada saying the> should be summoned before the Com- mons transport committee to explain their entire policy structures He said vast sums of money have been available to the two corporations and taxpayers should not be faced continual- ly with a bill for capital ex- penditures By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Transport Minister Jean Marchand will meet with representatives of the railways this week to dis- cuss the chronic shortages of boxcars that have developed in Canada Appointment of a transport czar has been called for by the official opposition Complaints were raised in the House of Commons over the boxcar problem A perennial complaint it
