Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, September 20, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Pipeline battle shaping up Man's best friend also man's biggest pest By HOWARD COLLINS OTTAWA (CP) A struggle is shaping up between two competing groups for the right to build a natural gas pipeline from the Mackenzie Delta. Canadian Arctic Gas Pipeline Ltd. (CAGP) applied last year for permission to build a line linking gas fields in both the Delta and Alaska with southern markets. Earlier this week, one of the original companies in the CAGP consortium of 27 com- panies announced it was withdrawing and will seek permission to build its own line. Foothills Pipelines Ltd., a subsidiary of Alberta Gas Trunk Lines Ltd., said it will apply for authorization to build an "all-Canadian maple leaf without an im- mediate connection with the Alaskan fields. But in a submission to the 'National Energy Board summarizing its proposal, Foothills indicated it has not completely turned its back on the energy-hungry U.S. market. Under its proposal, any gas surplus to Canadian needs be- tween 1980 and 1985 could be sold on the U.S. market, the funds being used to help pay the billion cost of its mile pipeline. Another bil- lion will be needed to expand pipeline facilities in southern Canada. The company also said it's line could be expanded at any lime to ship Alaskan gas through Canada to the United States market if the Americans were interested and the deal was economically attractive to Foothills. Foothills said it decided to pull out of CAGP because northern gas will be needed to supply the Canadian market by 1979-80 and it did not believe the consortium could meet that deadline. Main problem, the company said, is that the CAGP wiU need approval from regulatory agencies in both Canada and the U.S. The maple leaf line will only need Canadian approval. However, CAGP says it still believes only its billion pipeline moving both Cana- dian and U.S. gas provides the economics of scale to make the project feasible. Sufficient reserves of natural gas have not yet been found in the Delta to justify an all-Canadian pipeline, says a spokesman for CAGP. About 30 trillion cubic feet is needed for the 48-inch diameter pipeline proposed by CAGP and 15 to 20 trillion for the Foothills 42-inch line, he said. So far only seven trillion cubic feet had been dis- covered. Choice of which pipeline proposal gets the green light will first be made by the National Energy Board, but ultimately the decision rests with the federal government since it must ratify board decisions. Meanwhile, battle lines ap- pear to be forming up at the provincial level. BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) Man's best friend is fast becoming man's biggest pest because dog owners are letting their pets spread dis- ease, pollute the environment and injure millions each year, a veterinary researcher warns. "Dogs are posing a threat to neighbors and general com- munity says Dr. Bruce Max Feldmann, direc- tor of the pet clinic at the University of California here. Keldmann said in an inter- view Wednesday that the problem results from the fact that an increasing number of the 40 million dogs in the United States are becoming "free-roaming dogs whose owners let them run wild or no longer want them. He said many dog owners refuse to keep their pets con- fined, apparently from a mis- guided sense of kindness. "Some people are so alienated that they identify with their dogs and want to give them the kind ol freedom they'd like to have but he said. "More than 40 diseases in the United States can be tran- smitted from dog to said Feldmann. "And there's been a rise in the number of dog bites. More than one million dog bites are reported annually and at least as many go unreported. And there are increasing reports of a new menace the free roaming clog pack. "Pet fecal littering, also, is unaesthetic and a nuisance as well as a public health hazard." he said. "For ex- ample, the owned dogs in New York City deposit about 150.000 pounds of feces and 90.000 gallons of urine each day on the streets." CAREER OPPORTUNITIES Animals get better checkups humans in By PETER MICHAELSON OTTAWA (CP) Some dogs, cats and monkeys are getting better physical checkups in the laboratories of the federal health protec- tion branch than those available to people in the largest city hospitals. But the sophisticated diag- noses, based on the findings of a complex computer-analysis system, are carried out so sci- entists can learn more about the effects of environmental hazards on human health, says Dr. Harold Grice, head of the toxicology division of the branch's food research laboratories.

COMPLICATED John Truelove, the health department biologist who developed the test program, said the data analysis of chemical changes in the body is based on a series of about 20 complicated mathematical equations. Hospitals can diagnose a patient's health using elec- troanalysis without a com- puter because patients with disorders such as epilepsy or tumors generate distinctive electrical wave patterns that can be identified by eye, said Mr. Truelove. But health department scientists are looking for ex- tremely subtle changes in body chemistry that may become apparent when laboratory animals are fed ap- parently safe amounts of toxic substances. These changes may be the first clues to im- pending poor health. The scientists have already found that these subtle Congratulations Harry, you finished your Grade 12 with B credits!

Such findings may require reconsideration of the ar- bitrary safe limits set for metals such as mercury and lead, now set at .5 and .05 parts per million, respec- tively. Mr. Truelove said methyl mercury, the soluble form of mercury, had been shown in the test procedure to affect the brain waves of cats long before the cats succumbed to obvious clinical symptoms. Studies were also under-way to determine the subtle physi- ological effects of various lead levels on Cynamologus monkeys and the effects of amphetamines on dogs.
