Mineworkers to vote HINTON (CP) Members of Local 1656 of the United Mineworkers of America are scheduled to meet Sunday to ratify an agreement with the Cardinal River Coal Co. A memorandum of agree- ment was signed Friday in Edmonton which could end a four-month strike by the union against the Cardinal River Coal Co. here. No details of the settlement were available. Hinton is about 165 miles west of Edmonton. Truck hero nominated LLOYDMINSTER (CP) Ken Bishop of Lloydminster has been nominated for the 1974 Dunlop national truck hero award. Mr. Bishop rescued James McAdie from the burning wreckage of a two-truck colli- sion near Vegreville, Alta., last March 30, suffering burns to 40 per cent of his body in the process. Outcry puzzles Yurko EDMONTON (CP) En- vironment Minister Bill Yurko says he is puzzled over public outcry about a recent government decision not to permit two oil companies to build major refineries in the Edmonton area. Mr. Yurko says the decision is in line with previously- stated provincial government policy, aimed at avoiding vast environmental damage brought about by the concentration of major in- dustrial complexes. "Ever since it took office in 1971, the Lougheed govern- ment has said that it wants to avoid the stacking of major in- dustrial complexes around one or two growth centres in the province." the environ- ment minister said. However, it is "absurd" tc talk about a 50-mile radius around Edmonton or Calgary within which no major in- dustries should locate. Eact case is handled on an in dividual basis, Mr. Yurkc said.
