Big, small affairs oi stale Cabinet: decisions, decisions, decisions OTTAWA (CP) There arc high affairs of slale the cahinct must decide. OUicr matters, however, aren't so high, For example, the cabinet de- cides at a May meeting that G B. Warner, a member of the RCMP, could lease a piece of Crown land on Prelude Lake in the Northwest Terriotnes as a summer camp. About the same time, it de- cided that a sewer could be in- stalled on federal airport prop- erty at Kamloops, B.C. Not that the cabinet wasted much time on such decisions. But there are literally thou- sands of niggling items which each year require cabinet ap- proval. TABLES SUMMARY When the Commons resumed Tuesday after its summer holi- day, Prime Minister Trudeau tabled a summary of all cabinet oders passed in April and May. There was little or no indica- tion of any cabinet discussion of, say, unemployment and infla- tion. There was, of course. But there must be a cabinet order, such as proclamation of an im- portant piece of legislation, to provide a formal indication of cabinet's most serious endeav- ors. The April-May summary in- cludes orders for: entitled to receive free copies of the Revised Stat- utes of Canada, regulations for the inspection of canned fish. leave of absence for one civil servant. collective bargaining agreement covering n date processing group in the National Research Council. and salaries of various civil servants, includ- ing judges, "directors of Crown a high commis- sioner to Ttonga and Western Samoa. lor widows of indi- visual judges. the Stony Band of Indians in Alberta to use an abandoned road adjoining their reserve. of land transac- tions between Ottawa and the Environment Act holds up projects WASHINGTON (AP) The National Evironmenlal Policy Act is providing new ammuni- tion for lawstrits aimed at stop- ping pollution or other environ- mental damage by government agencies. Private inlcrest groups, par- ticularly the Environmental De- fence Fund, Inc., are moving into court to Ibbld up projects at least until environmental conse- quences are Dioroughly studied. Their record so far is mixed. The Environmental Policy Act, passed Jan. 1, 1970, re- quires government agencies to submit an impact slatement on any project or activity which has a significant effect on the environment. This statement, filed with the "ouncil on Environmental Qual- ity, is supposed to spell out any undesirable features and outline proposed alternatives. Using one such statement as jasis for a .suit, the Environ- mental Defence Fund and other won a signifi- cant victory earlier this year. They sued to enjoin the U.S. Army Corps-of Engineers from proceeding cr construction of a dan: across "the Cossatot Hiver in Arkansas until Ihe corps filed a more detailed impact state- ment. They contended fish and wildlife habitat, and unique sce- nic values would be destroyed by the project. District Judge G. Thomas Ei- sele ruled that Ihe corps' state- ment did not comply with the new law and granted the injunc- tion. While such suits may not per- manently halt a project, they can ensure that environmental questions will be fully consi- dered at the administrative level. Another corps of engineers jab, the West Tennessee Tribu- taries Project, also has been halted by a U.S. district court order until detailed environmen- tal studies can be completed. Conservationists filed suit against the project, already about one-third completed, on the ground that it is disturbing the balance of nature and possi- bly creating anecological wasteland in west Tennessee.
