Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Under the dome By THE CANADIAN PRESS Balanced budget 'possible' The Alberta government should be able to bring down a balanced budget next spring, Bob Clark, Social Credit house leader says. "In light of the present state of the economy and the revenue from non-renewable resources, it's important we have a balanced budget next year because if we can't, no province in Canada Mr. Clark said in an interview out- side the legislature. The 1972-73 fiscal year public accounts, which reveal- ed that the province's pro- jected deficit of million last year only turned out to be million, showed the "tremendous increase in the economic capacity of the country." While congratulating the government on improved money management prac- tices. Mr. Clark said: "It's not a matter of being stringent. It is a matter that some projects didn't get going (due) to poor estimating." Public hearings wanted Public hearings should be mandatory before new gas plants or additions to existing plants are built in Alberta, says a report by the Environ- ment Conservative Authority. The report, tabled in the legislature by Environment Minister Bill Yurko, was written after hearings last year on the environmental effects of the operation of sulphur-extraction gas plants. A joint public industry committee should be es- tablished to set pollution standards, hear complaints, conduct investigations and make recommendations to government, said the report. The committee, financed by the gas industry, would have equal representation from in- dustry and the public. Its chairman would be elected from the public represen- tatives. The energy resources conservation board currently holds hearings on gas plant construction projects. But the board also regulates the gas industry and hearings should be held by a separate body, said the report. Olther recommendations called for further studies of the effect of sulphuric gases on the environment and crea- tion of a division of en- vironmental health within the environment department. Parole jurisdiction sought The Alberta government has sought authority to es- tablish a provincial parole board, taking over some of the jurisdiction of the federally- administered board now in operation. Attorney-General Merv Leitch says. Parole of prisoners, even those under provincial jur- isdiction, is currently an ex- clusive prerogative of the federal government. Mr. Leitch. replying to Gordon Taylor (SC told the legislature the provincial government has considered the formation of an Alberta parole board. "In fact, the provincial government has made representations to the federal government urging that the question of parole for those persons within provincial in- stitutions be turned over to the provincial government. "This is apt to be one item which will be discussed in future meetings between the solicitor-general of Canada and solicitors-general or attorneys-general of the provinces."

Saturday, Octobar LETHBRIDGE HERALD-3 Transport act overhaul demanded by DAVID BLAIKIE OTTAWA (CP) The Na- tional Transportation Act must be overhauled radically to eliminate injustices suf- fered by Eastern and Western Canada, J. Patrick Nowlan Valley) told the Commons Friday. He said shippers in both re- gions are penalized by inequi- table freight rates and geo- graphic location. It costs more to move goods from the Annapolis Valley to Toronto than it does from Hamburg, Germany, to Toronto, he said. Rate differences varied immensely from commodity to com- modity. He said pool rail cars, to handle less-than-full carload shipments, run daily from To- ronto to Atlantic Canada but none are available to small Nova Scotia shippers. Mr. Nowlan spoke as the House renewed debate on a bill authorizing CNR capital expenditures of million in 1973 and million in the first six months of 1974. A similar bill, covering an 18-month period ended July 1. 1972, died on the order paper when Parliament was dissolv- ed for the October, 1972, federal election. Friday was the sixth full day of debate on the current bill. David Orlikow Winnipeg North) said the government must deal with transportation on a national basis to prevent in- dividual regions from falling behind in opportunities and services. He attacked the government for allowing what he called serious deterioration in Air Canada service. Part of the CNR bill covers loans to the government-operated airline. Air Canada service began to decline when the government started awarding routes to re- gional airlines and allowing CP Air to expand, he said. Rather than let CP Air, a privately-operated company, expand as it has, the govern- ment should do all it can to make Air Canada the best air- line in the country, he said. Stanley Knowles Winnipeg North Cen- tre) confined his remarks to railway pension plans, say- ing retired employees suf- fered unfairly from inflation. Cost-of-Hving increases in railway pensioners are re- stricted to two per cent an- nually even though federal pensions in many other categories are allowed to rise the full amount of the annual inflation to per cent, he said. He said finished products cost more to ship than raw materials. This was "certain- ly no encouragement" to the creation of jobs in the outlying areas. Also, rail line abandonment, especially in Saskatchewan, was forcing up farmers' costs because they had to pay for transportation to rail centre farther away.
