Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, September 3, THE LETHdHiDGE 3 Dateline Alberta Firms await files data CALGARY (CP) Oil and gas company representatives are waiting for clarification of a recent federal government directive that calls for widespread disclosures of con- fidential company files. The directive, issued July 29, requires companies involv- ed in exploration in federally administered areas to submit copies of transfer of interest agreements. Previous regulations stipulated that all such agreements had to be registered and approved by federal authorities but did not require the submission of documents. Shooting at Gleichen CALGARY (CP) RCMP at Gleichen reported that Elvon Henry Hoover of Calgary had been charged with attempted murder in connection with a shooting in- cident Friday. An RCMP spokesman said he was charged after a 12 gauge shotgun was discharged at RCMP just south of Highway 1 on the road to Gleichen, about 40 miles east of Calgary. Regina escapees caught CALGARY (CP) City A police spokesman said police arrested two youths Brendon Clayton Letain, 17, who had escaped custody of originally of Calgary, and the Regina Correctional Laurie Booth, 18, of Moose Centre when they slipped out of a Regina bowling alley Aug. 30. Jaw, were apprehended in a stolen car. Civil liberties in KAMLOOPS, B.C. (CP) The Alberta government's ap- pointment of a northwest commissioner to speed up development of the Athabasca tar sands puts civil liberties in jeopardy in that province, Grant Notley, leader of the Alberta New Democratic Par- ty says. "Albertans have put their civil liberties in cold he told the annual policy convention of the British Columbia NDP. Mr. Notley, the only NDP member in the Conservative Alberta legislature said that the appointment of the com- missioner was made to help multi national corporations rip off the province's resources. The commissioner's power, he said, is too wide-ranging because he will be able to dic- tate to or dissolve local coun- cils that might oppose the tar sands development. Mr. Notley accused Premier Peter Lougheed of "setting the stage for com- plete corporate control of future development of the oil sands." He accused the premier of being "a new breed of tory a much more dangerous type of Tory leader" because he "props up multi national companies." Mr. Notley also dubbed the Alberta premier "the shareholders' Santa Claus" because the government's re- cent purchase of Pacific Western Airlines was at a share when the shares were trading for a share.

Alberta rainfall cycle slips south EDMONTON (CP) The annual cycle of rainfall cover- ing northern Alberta is gradually slipping southward and that could spell disaster for the agriculture industry of the Peace River country, says Julian Kinisky, vice chairman of the Alberta En- vironment Conservation Authority. A further slippage of two or three degrees of latitude could mean higher production in the the north but as well could mean hgiher production in the south, he said in an interview. "In recent years it's been getting really tight in the Peace River he said. "There have been early snows and rainy springs. If the frost free period got much shorter, the region would be wiped out as an agricultural area. "If the mean temperature dropped degrees then all of a sudden the whole climatological regime of the province would be mangled." Mr. Kinisky said he bases his predictions on the theory that the world's weather Federal New Democratic Party leader David Lewis congratulates Alfred Beckett patterns are going through a of Vernon, B.C., who was awarded an honorary life membership in the NDP. Mr. atrperTipitluon Lewis was in Kamloops, B.C., Monday to address delegates at a provincial NDP levels aitering convention. Peter Nelson, assistant dis- __ _______ _ trict agriculturalist for the Peace River region, says farmers are two to three Opposition parties edgy 11 i over research budgets 7 Life member rapeseed fields by the end of August but this year farmers OTTAWA (CP) Much of the New Democratic Party's attack on the so-called cor- porate rip-off during the last two general election cam- paigns was bankrolled by the Canadian taxpayers. David Lewis based his fre- quent skirmishes with the "corporate welfare bums" on tedious research into the busi- ness activities of more than 500 companies operating in Canada. Mr. Lewis, like other politi- cians on Parliament Hill, relied heavily on the labors of government-paid researchers for the ammunition that he took into the Commons or onto the election trail. Now the opposition parties face the unhappy prospect of losing part or all of their re- search money. The July 8 election that gave back a Commons majority to the Liberals also pared opposition. claims to government research grants. Under a formula adopted in 1972 the four political parties received research budgets based on for the first 20 caucus MPs, for each additional MP in caucuses with 20 to 40 members and an additional a member for caucuses of more than 40 MPs. This meant research budgets of about for the Liberals who had 109 members before the election; about for the Conser- vatives with 106 members; for the NDP with 31 members and a flat for the 15-member Social Credit caucus. If the old formula is retain- ed the Liberal research budget will jump to about for their 141 MPs. At the same time the Conser- vatives, with 95 members, will drop to and the New Democrats, with 16 members, will be reduced to a flat Diabetes machines cleared OTTAWA (CP) Faults discovered in diabetes detec- tion machines two months ago have been corrected, a health department spokesman said yesterday.
