FAMILY SHOPPING CENTRE 426 6th STREET SOUTH OPEN THURSDAY and FRIDAY 9 A.M. to 9 P.M. N.W.T. Canada's Re Row By KEN KELLY Canadian Press Science Editor INUVIK, N.W.T. (CP) Im- agine transposing Texas' refin- ery row from the Gulf of Mex- ico to Canada's Arctic Coast and you got an idea of the boom some oil men see just over the northern horizon. "We should be preparing now for tens of thousands of people to be involved says A. E. Pallister, a geophysicist and member of the Science Council of Canada. Mr. Pallister's company, Pal- lister and Associates of Calgary, did extensive geophysical and geological work along the Arctic Coast. "I feel people underestimate the impact that finding an oil- it is going to be found have on this he said after touring the Mackenzie delta with the council. He sees striking geographical and geological similarities be- tween the Arctic Coast here and the Gulf of Mexico between Houston, Galveston and New Orleans. "Ages and types of recks and the structures are the same." Mr. Pallister believes oil de- velopment will be surprisingly large although the local market would be too small to support extensive refining and petro- chemical industries. But before oil is moved from this area, it will have to have som3 refining. Elements like sulphur, which con-odes pipelines and tankers and pollutes the atmosphere, will have to be extracted. Mr. Pallister's vision of in- creasing emnloyment has seri- ous implications for this com- munity of Inuvik was a planned com- munity, specially built in the last 15 years as a Western Arc- tic administrative and schooling centre. But its population under the impact of oil exploration has soared to almost three times the intended The implications can be mea- sured by the cost of the sewer-water-heating system, and the town is extending this insulated, above-ground "utili- dor" to every home in town. Everything runs above ground here because buried pipe or be- low-ground foundations disturb the muskeg insulating the per- mafrost, the deep layer of per- manertly frozen ground that covers vast areas of the north. Once thawing begins in the permafrost, foundations sink and pipes crack. So houses are built on wooden piles. New construction methods would be needed to build r.ofin- ing ooerations as well as indi- vidual homes. "There will be no reason to he surprised when the boom hap- pens." Mr. Pallister says. "We should be looking nov; at these road and rail doini? fie research that will be needed." Richard M. Hill, who runs the federal government's Inuvik re- search laboratory and is mayor of the town, agrees. "We are living on expecta- he said after briefing science council members on population forecasts and the growing need to train Western Arctic residents for the transi- tion to a' modern industrial soci- ety. Council members had a strik- ing illustration of permafrost problems. Three years ago forest and muskeg fire threatened the townsite. A firebreak one foot deep and four bulldozer-blades wide was torn from the muskeg surrounding the town. Today that one-foot-deep strip has become 10 or 12 feet deep in places as the permafrost has melted and the water drained away. Conservationists worry about the effect of these deep gullies on the wildlife of the region. Some are too deep for game to cross during migration. The north is criss-crossed with similar man-made gullies from the passage of bulldozers and other vehicles, or from the seismic lines cut for miles through tils brush by explora- tion crews seeking oil. Dr. 0. M. Solandt, science council chairman, told residents he is sure arrangements can be made so that results of one seis- mic lest can be made available to all cil companies before bid- ding on oil development leases. Former Minister Long Drug User EDMONTON (CP) Marvin i Wray Edwardson, a former minister in the Apostolic Church of Canada on trial for fraud, told Alberta Supreme Court that h'3 had been a drug addict for 17 years. Testifying in his own defence, Mr. Edwardson, 37, said his for- mer life of drug addiction cost him a day for the heroin on which he was dependent. He said he was arrested more than 50 times for crimes caused by his dependency on drugs. TURNING POINT Mr. Edwardson said a turn- ing point came in his life in 1966 through Ms association with a narcotics foundation in Vancouver and a profound dis- covery of the Christian religion. He said he was ordained by the Bold Bible Living Founda- tion in Vancouver in 19E6. This allowed him to preach in churches in Canada and the United States. He to be a minister in January. 1970, after several years of evangelistic preaching in the Apostolic churches in both countries. Mr. Edwardson, now a resi- dent of Calgary, said that out of his former association with drug addicts and alcoholics he formed the Turning Point Evan- gelism Association, a half-way house for addicts, in Portland, Ore., in 1956 and later formed a centre in Edmonton. He faces four charges; of de- frauding Michael Albert Per- due of defrauding Mr. Perdue of defrauding War- ren Gold of Edmonton of in early 1969 and of defrauding Northline Homes and Building Supplies of Edmonton of COO in the last half of 1968. FATHER OF THREE Mr. Edwardson, the father of three, said the company of which ho became treasurer still owes Mr. Perdue and that he had given Mr. Perdue a promissory note for the money, in the name of the Turning Point Society, to be paid by No- vember, 1969. The fraud charge was laid before that date. Mr. Edwardson said Mr. Per- due had loaned the money to the company of which be- came treasurer Success Devel- opment Co., and despite certain movements of the loan within the company, it is still a com- pany debt. He said he borrowed the 425 from Mr. Perdue in the fall of 1968 when he had to visit Vancouver to clear up a state- ment of claim made in the Su- preme Court of British Colum- bia in October 1966 and on which a settlement fell due in 1968.
