Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, October 24, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 9 Natives should be given first chance to fill Alberta job vacancies OTTAWA (CP) Man- power Minister Robert Andras said Wednesday that Indians and Metis should be given the first chance to fill jobs vacant in Alberta's major industries, mainly forestry and mining. He was replying in the Commons to Lincoln Alex- ander who asked what the government is doing to find people to fill about job vacancies in the prov- ince. Mr. Andras said he has talked with Alberta Labor Minister Bert Hohol and that there is agreement that the jobs should be fill- ed at the local level if possible. This, he hoped, would in- volve the province's native people, "even if it means intensive training." Only then should the regional and national networks of the manpower department take over, he said. Importing migrant workers, should be the last step. Mr. Alexander asked whether the government has studied the relationship between high job vacancy rates and high unem- ployment insurance benefits, suggesting that people would rather take the latter instead of working. Mr. Andras said there have been several studies, with the co-operation of various industries, and that what Mr. Alexander in- timated is rarely the case. Rather, woncers were more concerned about job location and working con- ditions. Jake Epp asked if the government is ad- vising its overseas im- migration offices about job opportunities and was told this is "an ongoing exer- cise." Mr. Andras said im- migration officers are given details about jobs available in every region of the country.

The current was discovered by the European space satellite Helos 11, launched on Jan. 31, 1972, the institute said. Scientists became aware of the new belt while assessing data collected by a specially- developed "-plasma analysator" installed in the Here are the ANSWERS for your NEWS QUIZ PART I: 1-backwards; 2-nine; 3-marijuana; 4-c PART II: 1-c; 2-a; 3-e; 4-b; 5-d PART III: 1-e; 2-d; 3-C; 4-a; 5-b PICTURE QUIZ: Prime Minister Harold Wilson unmanned spacecraft. The belt was said to be be- tween and miles thick. The Munich physicists believe the earth's magnetic field, on the side turned to the sun, combines with the stream of plasma emitted from the sun, the so-called solar wind. The electrically-laden par- ticles thus created are depos- ited on the. earth's dark side. The flow of the current sur- rounds almost the entire mag- netic field of the earth, the scientists said. With the help of data from the satellite, they hope to throw more light on the origin of the Van Allen radiation belt and the northern light zone on the earth. A colleague of Dr. Helmut Rosenbauer, the scientist who discovered the current of elec- trically-charged particles, said it will be named the Plasma Mantle. The belt is between to miles away from the earth and miles from the Van Allen radiation belt. standing whisky Canadian Taste our classic example. HERITAGE Distilled and ibcftirJed m CanaJi Gov't. takes over potash industry By GARRY FAIRBAIRN REGINA (CP) Saskatchewan's New Democratic Party govern- ment has moved again to take a sharply-increased share of the ownership and profits of a resource industry. The target Wednesday was potash. Elwood Cowley, minister of mineral resources, announced that all new potash mines in the province would either be wholly government owned or have majority government ownership. The government was also prepared to buy into existing operations. He also announced that the industry will be hit with a new reserves tax, 'effective last July 1, that at current prices would give the provincial government million next year. He emphasized that existing companies will not be re- quired to. accept government equity investment even if they are expanding. The announcement drew im- mediate fire from political and business spokesmen. Liberal Leader Dave Steuart said the new policy will cost the province thousands of jobs and could lead to a confrontation with Ottawa, since the federal government does not want to be squeezed out of resource revenues. He predicted that the provincial government will find .it nearly impossible to compete with private mul- tinational firms in world markets when the current world shortage eases. Saskatchewan, sole Cana- dian source of potash, exports 95 per cent of its production' out of the country. Ralph Cheesman, manager of the Saskatchewan Mining Association, said private in- dustry would be unwilling to help build new mines with the requirement that the govern- ment have majority ownership. He said it takes more than million to build a new mine' and the governments "playing around with the people's money." The announcement was ex- pected to complicate the fed- eral-provincial dispute over division of resource revenue. After Saskatchewan moved to take away much of the oil industry's increased profits by instituting a new royalty sur- charge last January, Ottawa complained that its corporate income tax base was being cut away and decided to disallow such royalty payments as tax deductions. Beside the increased oil royalties, which were follow- ed by a near halt in new private developments in.the province, the provincial government has created a Crown corporation, Saskoil, to develop new oil supplies. It has also increased receipts from forest products com- panies, reallocated their leases, and announced new government sawmills. Mr. Cowley's statement estimated that under the new system, the province next year would take 25 per cent of the potash industry's total revenue of million. The minister said that under original proposals made by the government last spring, before consulting the in- dustry, the industry would have paid million to the province at prices of a ton, compared with million un- der the new policy. Under the new policy, the government share would In- crease by million and the industry's share by million. Kfc the perfect way we put everything together that sets Panasonic Quatrecolor apart.
