(Times in Mountain Dayli ht Petroleum corporation suggested EDMONTON (CP) The decision by the federal government to increase the price of natural gas to a thousand cubic feet underlines the need to reassess natural gas development policies in Alberta, Grant Motley, provin- cial NDP leader, said today. Mr. Notley, in a news release, said Alberta should follow British Columbia's ex- ample and establish a petroleum corporation to market all natural gas produc- ed in the province. "Such a move would ensure that the increased price would go to the public treasury rather than to the private coffers of the produc- ing Mr. Notley said. While some incentives may be necessary, "it should sure- ly be up to the industry to prove their case rather than automatically receiving a price hike which bears no relation to either production or exploration costs." The NDP leader also said the higher export price clearly shows that the government's decision to reclassify one-fifth of the gas reserves in Alberta from old to new natural gas was an "unwise move and an unnecessary concession to producers." "Because of reclassi- fication, the majority of the higher export price will go to the oil-producing com- panies rather than the people of Alberta who own the resource in the'first place." He said higher export prices permit the government to review its conservation prac- tices with a view to slowing down production in order to increase the lifetime of ex- isting reserves. "This is particularly impor- tant in view of the fact that the government at the present time has no well-thought out plans on how to spend the windfall accruing to the province." a. Inquest set EDMONTON (CP) An in- quest will be called into the deaths of two men in a city sewer, a spokesman for Dr. Max Cantor, provincial cor- oner, said Monday. No date was set for the in- quiry into the deaths of Andy Rupik, 47, and Tony Spadafora, 41. They died last Thursday while making a routine check of a sewer in a new subdivision. Your...

The telegram was sent to request immediate considera- tion of an application by Gabriel Cabrolier Pizarro, a former dancer with Chile's national dance company. CALGARY (CP) The Alberta government does not favor continued rapid growth for Calgary and Edmonton at- the expense of the smaller centres in the province, Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell said Monday. The minister was express- ing his views at a forum on Calgary's proposal to annex 125 square miles, nearly doubling the city's physical size. The annexation will be the subject of a plebiscite to be held during the Oct. 16 civic election. A fellow panelist, Prof. Jim McKellar, of the University of Calgary faculty of en- vironmental design, agreed with Mr. Russell that the annexation is undesirable; but two" other panelists George Steber Jr., director of the Calgary Planning Department, and Rudy Janzen, district manager of Carma Developers Ltd. supported, the annexation proposal. "What are you trying to build? Another Los Angeles? Another Mr. Russell asked. He said Ed- monton and Calgary are already "growing too and the provincial government position is that growth opportunities should be equalized throughout the province. "I think we should look at the alternatives to annex- the minister said. He said the issue should be decid- ed by the people of Alberta, not just "politicians, ad- ministrators and the real es- tate industry." PLANNING AHEAD Mr. Steber said annexation "gives us an added option for future development." With the population of Calgary growing at the rate of between and annually, "it is important to plan well ahead." Mr. Steber, whose depart- ment recommended annex- ation, said land development has reached saturation points in several areas of the city. Mr. Jansen said with the growth, some new hous- ing units are required in Calgary each of the next two years and most of the housing starts will continue to be single-family units. "Annexation is the only policy that makes economic sense annexation would provide the local administra- tion control of the environ- ment in and around the city. It would provide for orderly development of the city and supply land for industrial development, suburban residential development and a parks and open system essen- tial to a quality en- vironment." Mr. McKellar said the ideal ratio in a North American city is not more than 11 persons per acre of land, but in Calgary it is only four persons per acre. "Annexation is not going to solve the housing he said, as houses will con- tinue to be sold at cost of production. He said a city with a larger area would incur higher transportation deficits and make the possibility of a mass transit system even more remote.
