SUPPLIED TITLE OF TAPE(S): Lorne Nicolson : calls for BC Hydro construction halt and reacts to BC Housing Corporation sale RECORDED: [location unknown], 1978-02 & 04 SUMMARY: TRACK 1: NDP Recreation and Conservation critic Lorne Nicholson (MLA for Nelson-Creston) calls for a halt to construction of BC Hydro projects due to come into service between 1982 and 1987. Nicolson; claims that an analysis of BC Hydro projections shows that the energy produced by these new projects will far outstrip demand. By 1987, with current construction plans, Hydro will be producing 70% mo;re energy than the province requires, Nicolson says. February 8, 1978. TRACK 2: Former housing minister Lorne Nicolson criticizes the government's plans to sell the BC Housing Corporation. Nicolson s;ays that the corporation served as a "very good monitoring agency of the housing activity in the province". Nicolson says that he is afraid that the Social Credit government may be trying to sell the ;corporation to "get a little bit more capital in to balance this year's books". Pointing to the profits made by the corporation, Nicolson says that selling the corporation for this reason would be ver;y short-sighted. April 7, 1978.;
