Date
From
VANCOUVER,; 31 January 1978.
R.R. Reid
70 Mr. A.G. De Souza
Manager, Bank3".ng Arrangements
Toronto, Ontario.
With reference to conversation with Warren Whissell concerning
quantity of DOT's required for Northland and BCCSS operation
purposes.
As indicated in our telephone conversation, BCCSS will require 25
DOT's at $1,000.00 limit, and 20 DOT's at $5,000.00.  Northland
will require only $1,000.00 limit DOT's, with quantities for Prince
Rupert 20; Kitimat 50, and Vancouver 50.
During conversation, it was learned of a survey being made respecting discontinuance of international money orders.  We wish to reiterate the necessity for this office to have the facility of
handling immediate refunds of Alaska cruise tickets payable in U.S.
funds, in addition to Canadian funds, of course, and to give you
an appreciation of the number of international money orders issued
for the 1977 season, we issued 82, with total amount payable $12,947.57
U.S. funds.
While I appreciate that bank drafts can be issued in your office,
the time consumed can be very irritating for the Travel Agent or
passenger awaiting refund.  There are numerous cases where a Travel
Agent will over remit, and I am sure you do not want to be bothered
issuing bank drafts for small amounts in U.S. funds under these
conditions.
While it is the present intention of Management to retire the
"Princess Patricia" following completion of her 1978 cruise season,
and our future in Alaska remains uncertain, there is the possibility
that we could still be involved during 1979sand the future,in some
manner, requiring the handling of U.S. funds and the refunding of
same.  It will therefore be appreciated if you will take this into
consideration during your survey and assist us in some manner to
effect refunds as handled heretofore, or as nearly convenient to
this practice as possible.

Vean Mr. Tsumura:
Thank you kindly {oh your letter o{ 24 January 1978, concerning
your Interest In our cruise ship, the "Vrlncess Vatnlcia."
We one pleased to enclose three copies o{ our 1978 cruise season
brochure, and under separate cover we are sending you an additional
10 copies.
There Is a great deal o{ Interest by several chuise ship operators
In chulslng the Inside Vassage to Alaska during the summer season.
The scenery and history o{ this nearly one thousand-mile waterway,
Is becoming more popular with each season.    Although we have been
operating to Alaska {or 75 years, It Is only within the past {ew
years that larger operators have concentrated their cruising
e{{orts In the Alaska area.    It seems as the world's scenic waterways become saturated with cruise ships, there are always nw
ventures made, with the Industry Immediately capitalizing on the
"new {Ind."
The "Vrlncess Vatnlcia" Is unique In that she represents a tittle
bit o{ yesteryear, yet Is {ally modern by today's standards o{
com{oht,  cuisine and ports o{ call.    By reason o{ her size, 6,000
tons, we are able to take the "Vrlncess Vatnlcia" Into areas Inaccessible to the larger cruise ships and thereby bring our
passengers more o{ the thrilling Alaska scenery en route the cruise,
than the majority o{ the other chuise ship operators. We will be very pleased l{ you, or any o{ your colleagues, have
the opportunity and time to take the Alaska cruise, that you
consider our service, and will be only too happy to assist you
with any {urther ln{ormation and/or the making o{ reservations.
Again, thank you {or the courtesy o{ your letter.
Yours very truly,

Vear Mr. Vroese:
Mr.  Holland mentioned to me on my return {rom holidays,  your
Interest In travelling to Alaska this year on the "Vrlncess
Vatnlcia."
1 am pleased to enclose current brochure {or your perusal,  {rom
which you can determine sailing dates, cruise Itinerary, categories o{ accommodation, applicable tarl{{, and location on
ship's plan.    A{teh you have had an opportunity to look this over,
please {eel {ree to contact me concerning any questions you have
relating to our cruise.
The "Vatnlcia" is unique among the many vessels cruising to Alaska.
Her size permits her to traverse many o{ the areas not available
to the larger ships, and her Itinerary permits more ports o{ call
than any other cruise Itinerary, except the ships that are on 10
or 12-day cruises.    The atmosphere on board skip Is very relaxed,
and all organized shipboard activities are low key In order that
you may participate, or do your own tiling at your convenience.
The experience o{ our crew will be appreciated en route the
chuise, {rom the many vignettes o{ ln{oh.matlon supplied and
couhtesies extended, which come naturally {rom our Canadian crew.
Sincerely trust that you will be able to travel with us this year,

I am attaching copies of the lower level, Pier B-C, in connection
with the handling of cruise ships inbound during the 1978 Alaska
cruise season.
CP Rail intends fabricating an area on the lower deck in the
vicinity of firewall, approximately midway down the west side
of Pier "B", for the handling of the cruise ship "Veracruz."
Following discussions with both Canada Customs and Rick Laciot of
Bob Schmitt's Department, it was agreed that we could facilitate
the offloading of the "Princess Patricia" passengers on the same
level, thereby avoiding use of the stairways at Berth 4 and a long
walk along the outside promenade into Pier "C" waiting room. The
intention is that two doors will be included in the construction,
shed Side A, through the prior interrogation room where passengers
will enter and proceed directly into the baggage-holding area for
baggage clearance.  They will identify, pick up their baggage and
proceed through the check point and disperse from the waiting room
into the shed, where buses, taxis and private automobiles will be
awaiting them.  Prior interrogation will be conducted on board the
"Patricia" as in past years;. Baggage will be offloaded in the usual
manner and pulled to the inside shed door of the baggage-holding
area prior to passengers' disembarkation.  This will have the
two-fold effeet of ease of passenger disembarkation, and saving
of time by ship's personnel and handling of baggage to Pier "C"
as heretofore.
Further meetings will be held between all cruise ship operators,
and there may be some refinement of the afore-mentioned, but
)Form 102-R - 2 -
basically, this is the manner in which "Princess Patricia"
passengers will be offloaded during 1978.
There are two days on which the "Veracruz" and the "Princess
Patricia" are in conflict.  On these dates CP Rail will request
"Veracruz" to maintain her 1000 arrival, and "Princess Patricia"
should arrive at 0830.
There will be the additional requirement of shifting the "Patricia"
on June 24th and August 19th to accommodate arrival of the "Sun
Princess" and "Veracruz." This necessity will have to be watched
closely, and if necessary, interrupt disembarkation of passengers
to facilitate.
This information is given to all concerned in order that we are
knowledgeable of this year's inbound arrivals.

We occasionally have vacancies for Coffee Room Assistants
on our ferry the "Princess of Vancouver", which plies between
Vancouver and Nanaimo, B.C.  The duties of a Coffee Room
Assistant include clearing tables, attending counter, etc.
The way it looks at present we have sufficient people "laid
off" from last summer to fill all the vacancies that will
occur when our busy season opens up around Easter.  I think
you would be taking quite a chance to come all this way in
the hope of obtaining a position on our ship; however, if it
is your intention to come to Vancouver, in any event, please
do not hesitate to call in and see us, on arrival, and we will
see what can be done.

Thank you for your letter of January 12, concerning your
aspiration to work as a cruise director on a passenger ship.
I regret I am unable to advise you of what special courses
you should take to be a cruise director and suggest you seek
the assistance of your school counsellor in this regard.
We are unable to offer you any form of employment on our own
cruise vessel the "Princess Patricia", as, unfortunately, 1978,
will be her last season in service.
So far as age requirements are concerned, from my own observations a certain degree of maturity is required to properly

25 years of age.
Sorry I cannot be of more assistance but I wish you the very
best of luck in your chosen endeavour.

Re meeting 25 January between Mr. Margetts, Mr. Wood and yourself,
and request by Mr. Margetts for a brief note with respect to effects
of B.C. Ferry Service.
Many of Northland's customers also ship to Vancouver Island via
common carrier, using BCCSS, and the subject of truoking rate
increase of 10%% on Vancouver Island traffic has been brought up
several times.  The truckers blamed the increase on the BCCSS.
Statement was made several times that alternate means of shipping
would be investigated; i.e., purchase of own trucks.
I met with L. Paozny, Branch Manager, Sidney Freight, 25 January.
He advised me that their freight carrying for January 1978 so far,
was the lowest in their history.  BCCSS traffic currently down
approximately 12% this year over last year.  He felt that the
LTL carrier rates to the Island were high because of the water
costs (CPR barge).  As a result, shippers are renting or purchasing
straight trucks and delivering their own goods via B.C. Ferries.
Unless B.C. Ferries rates increase drastically, BCCSS service to
Victoria, and possibly some of the LTL carriers serving Victoria,
may have to he withdrawn :>. for economic reasons.
Example:  45 ft.

A great deal o{ discussion was In evidence at this meeting
concerning the necessity o{ minimizing the Impact o{ the
accelerated {requence o{ visitors to Glacier Bay and the
re{use they leave behind In various {ohms.    White there are
{ewer steamship companies and sailings than hereto{ore,
during 1978 by reason o{ the change In patterns o{ the
cruise ships, there Is a greater concentration o{ ships
In Glacier Bay at the same time than ever be{ore, which
will be appreciated {rom the diagram shown below.

On one occasion,  5 July, the "Vrlncess Vatnlcia" will be
one o{ {our ships In Glacier Bay at the same time.    Because
o{ the e{{ect on birds    o{ smoke emission and dead air
areas, where stack emissions dissipate very slowly,, those
responsible {or maintaining Glacier Bay Vark are very concerned about the {uture scheduling o{ ships to prohibit
the congregation as will be evident this year.    While they
are very reluctant to en{orce legislation, there are two
United States Acts which give them the right o{ action:
1. Endangered Species Act 93-205  (1973) which would a{{ect
Hump Back Whales In Glacier Bay.
2. The Marine Vrotectlon and Responsibility Act  92-522.
Questionnaires will shortly be received {rom Varks Board
concerning such Items as Solid Waste Management, an example
o{ which would be'-    What happens to sewage on each vessel?
What happens to garbage on board ship?   What one the habits
o{ crew and passengers regarding the throwing overboard o{
re{use?
In view o{ minimum tidal e{{ect In Glacier Bay, everything
that goes overboard Is washed up on shore and Is not cleaned
out o{ the Bay by changing tides.    Vead air pockets In Mulr
Inlet and also John Hopkins, retain stack emissions {or days,
and with the concentration o{ steamships previously mentioned,
the e{{ect on nesting eagles and other birds can be disastrous. 3 -
Vurlng the morning session we had a visible appreciation
o{ the e{{ect o{ cruise sltips on whales In Glacier Bay.
A great many statistics were given us on the Interruption
In breathing patterns o{ the whales, which obviously a{{ects
their {ceding patterns, and the disruption In their normal
living In the areas {requested by the cruise sivips.    The concern o{ environmental agencies Is whether or not long-term
damage will result {rom the Increased activity o{ cruise ships,
power boats, etc.,.{requesting Glacier Bay.
There are dl{{erences between the types o{ sivips In tlie Bay,
and one aspect o{ the on-gclng research being done In Glacier
Bay Is to determine whether particular ships a{{ect whales
dl'{{erentty.    Basically, a wlvxle rises to the sur{ace to
challenge the Intrusion o{ Its area, hence the change In heart
beat and breathing patterns.    When a whale encounters an object
larger than ltset{ and {eels that It cannot protect lis area,
It then submerges or withdraws.    An attempt Is being made to
measure the traumatic e{{ect.    This all adds up to the {act that
In the {uture, Glacier Bay may require scheduling o{ the ships
In such a manner as to preclude the concentration o{ sivips
that wilt be visiting the Bay this year.    This could have drastic
e{{ects on {uture scheduling, In that the direction and Intent
o{ any cruise lines scheduled to use Glacier Bay In eltlier
direction will be controlled.
In this connection a meeting will be held In the near {uture, o{
all steamship tines cruising to Alaska In 1979,  {or a resume o{
their scheduling and possible changes that will be demanded In
same.

I appreciate very much the Information you have {orwarded on
this year's CGOT Consortium Vrcmotlons.
Last year's endeavour was very bene{lclat to us; however, because o{ Management's decision to withdraw the "Vrlncess
Vatnlcia" {rom Alaska service this year, we have had to seriously
curtail our 1978 Involvement to the extent that we have {Igura-
tlvely "put all oun eggs" In the Worlds o{ Alaska Travel Show's
basket.    CV Air, San Tranclsco, who act as our General Agents,,
will carry our literature at Uie Show, but I regret that we will
not be othervjlse represented.    Your assistance tost year was
very much appreciated, and we are sorry that we will not be
joining you this year.
The state o{ our Alaska endeavours remains uncertain; however,
should there be an alternative to the retirement o{ the "Vrlncess:
Vatnlcia," we will de{lnltely be In. touch with you, and possibly
in association with you in 7979.

Dear Sir:
We thank you for your letter of 2 December 1977, outlining the
functions of the Missions to Seamen.
We well appreciate the value of Rev. J.D. Parker and those
assisting him, as travel can often be lonely, and surely, when
one's occupation such as a seaman takes him away from home
for such lengthy periods, the facilities of the Mission must
fill the void.
Please find attached the Company's cheque in the amount of
$300.00 in favour of the Missions to Seamen, which I forward
with pleasure.  At your convenience, would ask that you forward
me a receipt in duplicate, such procedure being in accord with

I extend to Rev. Parker and those assisting him, our best wishes
for success in their endeavours.

Since we are now operating a tug and barge service to the North,

As I have expressed previously, I think that we should design an

Mr. Wedman has brought to our attention the attached copy of
Form PF-5A, which he received from your office.
"Pensionable Service" is indicated as 31 years and 5 months.
Attached herewith is a copy of Form P.F.42 dated June 16, 1972,
received from the Supt. of Pensions, which is self-explanatory,
together with a copy of our letter dated July 4, 1972, with which
was enclosed Mr. Wedman's cheque in the amount of $75.06 to cover
pension contributions for the first six months of service.  From
this it would appear that Mr. Wedman's "pensionable service"
should be 31 years and 11 months.
Please advise in this regard.

This is in reference to our conversation this date regarding
figures shown on the Alaska cruise sales reports, and in particular, the report for the period January 11th to January 18th.
As reviewed with you, it appears that there is some discrepancy
in the figures reported and the actual monies received in the
way of down-payment for passages. Would you kindly review the
situation and ensure that a system is set up that pr6vides for
the most up-to-date reporting possible, and also the deposit of
cheques to the bank each day.  I would suggest that a noon cutoff would allow for optimum efficiency in this procedure.
I realize that the calculation of deposits is time-consuming, but
any other practice than a daily deposit is not only in direct
contravention of Company policy, but also leaves us exposed to
the loss of these cheques, either through misplacement or theft.
Your confirmation that the appropriate procedures have been
implemented is requested.

I regret delay in replying to your letter of 10 January 19/8,
File 1-420, but have just returned from annual vacation.
In reply to the questions asked by Regional Counsel, Toronto:
1. Copy of billing is an inter-office billing used between the
Vancouver Wharf Ticket Office, at which point the accounting
is done for Alaska sales, and this office, where Alaska
tickets are issued and mailed directly to clients.  This
billing was not sent to the Travel Agency.
2. You will notice from copy of the form letter that we request
payment six weeks prior to sailing.  In this particular instance tickets were held in this office until arrival of
clients and handed to them for their cruise, rather than
inconvenience their travel plans meanwhile, on the assurance
of New Toronto Travel that cheque was coming.  We have never
attempted to assess interest rates on bad cheques, being
interested only in obtaining payment for services rendered.

The lady did not have very many details concerning the company

I received an indignant call from Mr. Tiny Himes, who said that
he wished to point out to us Page 5, Article 1 of the S.I.U,
agreement, which provides for the posting of seniority lists on
board the ships.
Would you please review this provision and ensure that we act
in accord with it.  He stated that this had not been done for
two years, which I questioned, but confirmed that should we be
delinquent in this matter the situation would be rectified.
Kindly confirm your action.

to get a cup of hot chocolate on board the "Princess of Vancouver."
The patron was advised that only tea and coffee were served, and
that while they had tried to get hot chocolate, it was not required
and thus they could not serve such a drink.
Would you please look into the matter and ensure that hot chocolate
is available in future.

I received a phone call from Mr. Jack Gibson yesterday, who will
be travelling on the June 24th sailing of the "Princess Patricia,'
Mr. Gibson stated that he and Mrs. Gibson spent their honeymoon
on board the "Princess Louise" some 40 years ago, and are returning to the "Princess Patricia" for their 40th anniversary. He
suggested they might like to be at the Captain's table.
Mr. and Mrs. Gibson will be occupying Cabin 222, and perhaps we
should make a note to provide them with a bottle of champagne on
the evening of 29 June, the date of their anniversary.

This refers to correspondence, your File V-77-30, to Mr. J.L.
Rochon, with particular reference to letters dated 4 January and
10 January 1978.
I think you will appreciate my concern with respect to the position
which has been taken by the Vancouver Division, regarding the derailment at Nanaimo of tank cars on 5 November 1977 while being
discharged from the "Trailer Princess."
You state that your investigation determined that the sole responsibility for the mishap was the B.C.C.S.S,'s, and until I am
convinced this is so, cannot accept same, nor any charges resulting
from this accident.  This matter has been discussed with Vancouver
Division personnel, and while you appear to have prepared a report,
we have not been privy to it, and thus have not been allowed to
express our concern and opinion as to the cause of the accident.
We have pertinent information on our files with respect to both
the contravention of written instructions, and the speed with which
the cars were pulled from the vessel.  I would have thought that a
review of this documentation would have enhanced the outcome of
your inquiry.
As stated, I cannot accept any of the related charges resulting
from this mishap until such time as I am convinced that we were
indeed at fault.  In this light I would appreciate if we could meet
and review the relevant circumstances and correspondence, in an
effort to reach a mutually acceptable position.  In the interim,
by copy of this letter I am asking Mr. Rochon to please place all
charges related to this accident in abeyance.
Would appreciate your advising time and place it would be convenient
for us to meet to: discuss this matter.

Dear Dr. Dunn:
As you are aware, I wrote to you last year enclosing a donation
on behalf of the passengers of the "Princess Patricia" Canadian
Pacific cruise ship to Alaska, which was collected during the
1976 season.
I now find myself in a position to provide additional funds,
and accordingly, you will find attached a cheque for $700.00
which, as previously explained, was generated through collections
at Sunday services, and from the passengers who donated a portion
of their winnings from the casual games of chance that are offered
as recreational activities on board the "Patricia."
In keeping with the practice established last year, it is hoped
that these funds will be earmarked for use in the neurological
research programme.
On behalf of the officers and passengers of the "Princess Patricia,"
it is indeed a pleasure to forward these funds to you.
Yours very truly,
M.W. HOLLAND

Reference your memorandum of 11 January, file T-78-69.
Met with Mr. Burchill Friday, 13 January 1978.
Mr. Burchill's arrangements are flexible to the extent of
making himself available to friends for "Patricia" promotion
at their convenience. Accordingly, he has no "dated" itinerary
but will record on expense sheets city and number in attendance
at each showing.
The concept of this arrangement was to permit Mr. Burchill to
"do his own thing" and feel that is the way he should be permitted to go. Dates of AVA and CGOT have been given Mr. Burchill
for his guidance when in the vicinity of these events.
Please bear in mind that Mr. Burchill has advised many of his
friends he is enroute and they have requested him to let them
know when he is in their area so it will be an ongoing thing.
I have also asked Mr. Burchill to phone me periodically.

From   A.N. Cairns
To   Memorandum
Mr. M.W. Holland
File:  651
Due to increased deepsea ship berthings at Pier B-C and the
forthcoming commitments to cruise ships for berthing at this
same pier, BCCS is faced with a problem of not having a suitable layover berth for ships out of service.
As the "Carrier Princess" does not now operate on weekends, the
non-availability of berthing at Pier B-C presents a problem of
some concern.  If there is no barge commitment at A-l we have
been able to utilize this berth, but it is not entirely suitable
for berthing a "dead ship," and no doubt at some point we will
encounter objections from the Harbour Master's office, in that
an unattended ship in this berth in adverse tidal and weather
conditions, could be considered a "menace to navigation."
The attached sketch suggets a proposal that I recommend as a
minimal requirement to provide a layover facility for our ships.

Dear Sir:
This has reference to Mr. Timpson's recent conversation concerning the COLA Clause contained in the Memorandum of Settlement
signed August 26, 1977 between Canadian Pacific Limited and the
organization which you represent.
As you are aware, the Minister of Finance, in a speech on October
20, announced changes in the Anti-Inflation Program which had the
effect of setting the maximum allowable increase in compensation
in the third program year at 6% plus or minus an experience adjustment factor to a maximum of 2%.
As a part of the amendments made to the Anti-Inflation Regulations
required to effect these changes Section 46(d)(ii) was repealed by
P.C. 1977-2999; SOR/77-870, October 20, 1977, gazetted October 24,
1977.
As a result of the repeal of that Section I regret that the above-
referenced COLA Clause will not become operative.

Further to our recent conversation regarding the extension of
credit facilities to customers formerly of Northland Navigation
Co. Ltd. and currently of the BCCSS - Northland service.
Attached is copy of the master file of companies enjoying credit
privileges at present, and you are requested to review this list,
noting the firms that have established credit with Canadian
Pacific and those that have no credit terms to date, and consequently, will be requested to complete the necessary forms.
There may also be firms listed that Canadian Pacific has cancelled
credit with, or whose payment procedures are known to be delinquent.
Again, you are requested to provide us with any information on
these firms.
We are very impressed with the current procedures followed by
Northland, as their annual write-off of bad debts has been minimal
to date. Mrs. C.J.Siddall, the individual in charge of this area,
appears to be extremely competent and very much of a no-nonsense
person.
In line with this, it is requested that you give consideration to
coming to Vancouver to review with the appointed personnel, Canadian
Pacific's policy governing the extension of credit privileges and
current practices, taking such action as is necessary to ensure
they are adapted to Company procedures, also to discuss the results
of your review of the attached master file.
As you are aware, we have a couple of problem accounts with the
BCCSS in our "drop" trailer operation, and would appreciate your
direct participation in rectifying same.  In this respect I would
suggest that it would be beneficial to also have a member of the
|g) Form 102-R - 2 -
office of the Manager, Customer and Agency Accounts accompany
you to ensure that no procedures are overlooked.  However, I
will await your comments on this point before approaching Mr.

for handling.
Mr. Foster has requested that he be allowed to pay into the pension

December 20, 1977) and this he will be allowed to do.

Further to our discussions with Messrs. De Souza and Whissell regarding the cash requirements of newly-created Agencies, resulting
from the takeover of the Northland group of companies.
We have found it to be imperative that cash funds be available
to these persons in Vancouver, Prince Rupert and Kitimat.  The
disbursement of such funds is required to meet certain terms
related to labour contracts and for day-to-day expenditures of an
emergent nature.  Accordingly, you are requested to arrange for
Drafts on Treasurer to be issued to this office c/o the undersigned,
which will be used to replenish the cash requirements of these
Agents.  I would appreciate if you would forward the DOT's, complete
with instructions for their handling.  It is understood that the
DOT's are superseding the use of money orders across the System.
In light of the extensive use of the CIBC instruments, I would
appreciate implementation of the DOT's at the earliest possible
date.

You can appreciate that the issuance of refunds covering passage
paid on our cruise ship, in many instances amounts to $2,000.00

of January, at which time you will be freer than you are now.
However, it is imperative that the claims against BCCSS by our

Also, as discussed earlier, you will be responsible for the reporting of the Alaska statistics which Mr. Margetts has requested.  We

File:  T-78-10
Re your memorandum, File T-78-10, of 9 January.
1. (A) 500 of the approximate 2500 letters to travel agents
in Southern California remain to be done.  The envelopes
for these will be addressed with peel-and-stick labels.
(B) 3100, 12" x 5" envelopes have been addressed for travel
agency mailouts instead of the approximate size 9" x 12",
which will be used for the remainder of the mailout (approximately 4000).  The larger envelopes have not arrived as yet,
and no definite date has been given.  Suggest we get 10,000
locally, immediately.
(C) 500 stuffed envelopes mailed.
500 stuffed envelopes ready to mail.
3 cases brochures folded ready to stuff.
(D) As mentioned, 500 envelopes have been mailed.  The actual
posting will be difficult because of the heavy volume of
incoming mail and other regular duties performed by Alan
Giesbrecht.  Suggest that additional personnel be acquired
to postal stamp and stuff envelopes.
(E) Additional items:
(i)  Travel agents request forms and coupons number
approximately 1000 at present, with an average
of 30 requests arriving daily, which, as season
progresses will double, as per past experience.
(ii)  Bulk shipments of brochures will have to be expedited.  This is also a time-consuming task of
preparing bundles of 25 to 100 brochures for 75
to 90 (CP Rail, CP Air, etc.) offices, as well
as typing of Customs forms, commercial invoices,
and waybills.
Form 102-R - 2 -
2. The sales report will be completed each reporting day, with
an up-to-the-minute account of all sales (individual and
group).
3. The. end of February-beginning of March, we will be involved
in the A.V.A. show, San Francisco area. At this same time,
we should have representation:

1. In perusing overtime for J. Cross, Bartender your vessel, it is
noted he has claimed half an hour daily in excess of the approved
one and a half hours per day, as per the working hours schedule.
It is also noted that the overtime was initialled and signed as
approved by the Chief Steward.
You are advised that in the future, greater care is to be taken
in the control of overtime as it relates to approved daily work
schedules.
2. It is noted O'Dowd and Blades have shown themselves as Waiters,
and it is presumed they are Bar Waiters.  If this be so, there
is no entitlement to overtime as shown on the work schedule.
3. Overtime sheets for McMillan, Chan and Lai, are incomplete as

Mr. V. Jones
Received a phone call from Ed Smith, on Friday, 6 January, stating
that it was his intention to go to Kitimat with Messrs. Froese
and Clark on 15 January, through until the night of the 17th.
The purpose of the trip is to fully review the handling procedures
over the Kitimat dock, and distribution therefrom, and it is their
intention to cost out the operation on the basis of the model they
drive.
He stated that of course, their first purpose would be to eliminate
the overtime hours.  I advised Mr. Smith that I could see no problem in this, and would advise the appropriate persons of their
arrival.
Further, he reiterated the importance to them of receiving the
information they requested concerning customer and related volumes,
as they plan to put together a pickup and distribution pattern,
which again, would be the basis of their costing of handling the
P. & D. for the Northland service.  I advised him that we had
problems in this area, but that we were having a further meeting
on Monday, and that someone would be contacting him after these
discussions.
It is still my opinion that we should not divulge this information
to Johnston's, and I recommend that we should remain with our
original position that such information will be kept confidential
until such time as a decision is made with respect to this handling.

Further to our discussions regarding the placement of personnel
between the BCCSS and Northland, it is understood that you will
be spending as much of your time as possible down at the Northland
docks.
Jim Finnie, of course, will be doing likewise.
We discussed the movement of certain personnel very briefly last
week, and I would appreciate meeting with yourself and Mr. Finnie
ASAP to determine the relocation of persons, which will ensure
the greatest efficiency and continued smooth functioning of our
truck and trailer operation.  It is not my intention to make any
radical changes which are going to leave us with inexperienced
personnel, but I do feel that the sooner we act in this area the
smoother our transitional period will be; therefore, would you
kindly review personnel who would be involved, and provide me with
your recommendation.  At that time I will require some background
with respect to the individual's experience, performance, and
salary.

As a result of our takeover of Northland Navigation, we are
now faced with the position that Agents at Vancouver, Prince
Rupert and Kitimat require on-the-spot cash for various disbursements.
Accordingly, would you kindly arrange today for emergent
cheques to be issued in the name of Mrs. C.J. Siddall, Vancouver;
Mr. D.J. Murray, Kitimat, and Mr. N.H. Parham, Prince Rupert.
The amounts should be $400.00, $400.00, and $300.00 respectively.
These funds will be accounted for in accordance with Company
policy, and are to be used as an interim measure until such time
as we receive drafts on Treasurer from the Treasury Department
in Toronto.
Your immediate attention to this is requested, as Mr. Jones will
be flying to Kitimat Wednesday morning and can deliver the cheques

I would like to meet with you this p.m. to discuss the following,
with respect to the "Princess Patricia:"
1. Distribution of brochures:
(a) Typing
(b) Envelopes
(c) Stuffing
(d) Mailing
2. Report of sales - the next reporting date of 11 January, and
would you kindly ensure that all deposits received to date
are included in this weekly report.  One tour company has
sent in a deposit of approximately $6,000.00, which, of
course should be included in the "Sold" category.
3. Your travel plans for the end of February-beginning of March,
at which time I will be coupling my own activities in with
yours to ensure our complete coverage in the shows to which
we have committed ourselves.
In speaking with Noreen, she advises that Mrs. Breton will be
on holidays the end of February and beginning of March, which
will mean that we should be looking at spreading ourselves a
bit thinly to cover shows in which she was going to assist.
You can talk this over with Noreen before we meet.
4. On reviewing old correspondence, I note that a lot of letters
are on file T-77-10, which indicates that we will be following
up with tour operators in the new year with our .'78 brochures.
Would you kindly review this file and ensure that this has
been done.
Please have ready any other topics which you feel should be discussed at this time.

With regard to a visit to the ship {or a guided tour,  I would

respect to the ship's operation that you may see {It to ask.
Por your {urther ln{ormatlon, the Alaska cruise season commences

Enclosed for your perusal is CP Air's brochure of Vacation Travel,
Western Canada.
Our "Princess Patricia" Alaska cruise is featured on Page 15 as
Klondike, Kluane Cruise Tour, in conjunction with Atlas Travel
Tours of Whitehorse.
The general brochure theme seems to be one of presenting Western
Canada as a destination featuring the scenic aspects of each area
with very limited exposure of transportation carriers, services,
hotel facilities, etc.
The die cut mountain-shaped top of the folder is a novel idea,
but I am not entirely pleased with the coverage the "Patricia"
received. We are, however, more fortunate than other operators;
i.e., B.C. Ferries' "Queen of Prince Rupert," Page 7, and Princess
Louisa Cruises, Page 15>  who did not have a photograph representing their product.

Date of Loss - December 9, 1977 @ 11:30 a.m.
Olivene KNIBBS	
Your letter of December 21, 1977, to Mr. Sylander of our
Claims Department regarding the above has been forwarded
to me for reply.
I would state at the outset that the alleged accident did
not take place at the Nanaimo Ferry Depot but at Pier A-3,
Vancouver, and was witnessed by a C.P. Rail Constable.
The treads on the ramp are not of steel but of a rubber
material and many cars successfully negotiated the ramp
on the day in question.  The Constable who witnessed the
accident called another C.P.R. Constable and together they
examined the ramp and Mrs. Knibbs' vehicle.  They perceived
that Mrs. Knibbs was driving in violation of the law, i.e.
her automobile was not equipped with snow tires during snowy/
icy weather.  We, therefore, have no alternative but to
reject the claim.

Vean Mr. Praser:
7 apologize {or the delay In replying to your letter o{ 23
October 1977,  enclosing a magnl{lcent photo o{ the "Princess
Patricia" as she passed In {ront o{ Sawyer Glacier.
We have reviewed our operation o{ the "Princess Patricia" In
the a{termath o{ the 1977 season, and while we must conslde.r
the season ltsel{ success{ul, we have made the dl{{lcult decision that 1978 will be the last season {or the vessel cruising
to Alaska. Although 7 was hope{ul o{ the possible use o{ the
photo In our Public Relations and Advertising programme, the
circumstances do not warrant consideration {rom this standpoint.
However, being a sentimental Individual, and the picture being
one o{ the {Inest 7 have seen, I would very much appreciate l{
you could possibly arrange to have printed three copies {or my
personal use. 7 note that you mention you would be willing to
sell the use o{ the picture, but In light o{ circumstances, while
7 am willing to make a contribution o{ a personal nature to youn.
e{{orts,  1 am unable to provide corporate {unds {or this purpose.
Please advise me the cost o{ these prints, plus any other consideration you may deem {easible prior to printing.
Yours very truly,
M.W.  HOLLAND
