Dear Mr. Langley:
With reference to change in your travel plans to visit Alaska,
we are now pleased to confirm that we are holding deluxe Cabin
220, Vancouver to Skagway, on the July 18th sailing of the
"Princess Patricia."
May 31st, on which you were originally booked, was a reduced
fare sailing in comparison with July 18th, which is a summer
sailing. Cabin 220 is an improvement in category over accommodation held on May 31st. The additional cost resulting
from the foregoing amounts to $198.50.
.
The White Pass & Yukon train tickets are good for travel July
22nd between Skagway and Whitehorse, requiring an endorsement
account change of travel date.
Subject to your acceptance of Cabin 220, we will appreciate
receiving your tickets previously issued for the May 31st
sailing, for reissuance.
Looking forward to the opportunity of showing you over the
"Princess Patricia" on May 31st,
Yours very truly,
R.R. REID

Attention: Capt. J.E.S. g
Gentlemen:
As per our recent conversation, I have enclosed a report from
the Chief Engineer on board our "Princess of Vancouver."
By reading the report, which is self-explanatory, you will
understand why this engineer was given the option to resign
from his then present employ with B.C.C.S.S., and seek employment elsewhere.
Acoording to verbal reports, this situation has happened before,
with no rebuttal from the accused, and would therefore suggest
that he is not referred to us for re-employment at any future
date.
As you will appreciate, this man was incapable of being in
charge of an engineroom, and in so being could have put the
vessel into a very difficult situation.
Yours very truly,

To Chief Steward
"Princess Patricia"
On July 16th, while in port at Prince Rupert, the Miss Prince
Rupert Committee wishes to host a tea party for between 20 and
25 young ladies concerned with this year's activities.
As we are agreeable to hosting this venture between 2:00 and 4:00
p.m., it will be appreciated if you will kindly arrange for tea
to be served, together with pastries, in the Aft Social Hall.
It will be appreciated if you and the Second Steward, commensurate
with your responsibilities, can be in attendance, and on copy of
this letter to Purser, Master and Chief Engineer, we are requesting
them to have other officers who may be available to also be in
attendance.
The purpose of this afternoon tea is to give the girls an opportunity and meet and converse with people outside the city, as this
is one area of the competition for the name of "Miss Prince Rupert."
Mr. and Mt?s. Reid will be on this sailing, and will also be in
attendance.
er, B.C.C.S.S.
cc. Purser, "Princess Patricia" - It will be appreciated if you
will kindly attend the afternoon tea, as time permits.
Master, "Princess Patricia" - It will be appreciated if you
could spend some time with this group, commensurate with
your responsibilities, and as many of your officers as time
will permit, to be in attendance also.
Chief Engineer, "Princess Patricia" - It will be appreciated
if you can spend some time at this function, together with
any of your officers who may also be able to attend.

Interna/ Correspondence

From R.R.  Reid
To Mr. p.i. Georges
Montreal, Que.
We are attaching Space Availability Report No. 7, indicating the
"Princess Patricia" is presently booked to 89.6% of her room
capacity.
Additionally we are enclosing advice of tour cancellations received
since our last report (No. 6/76). You will notice a good many
rooms have been resold; however, the performance of tour bookings
this year has been most disappointing to date.
We have utilized standby lists to the greatest extent possible,
although, as you can appreciate, they have dwindled from overuse;
however, where we are getting requests from senior citizens, we
are guaranteeing them accommodation in order to secure bookings.
Since the decline in group bookings commenced the beginning of
April, we have embarked on a campaign to promote the "Patricia"
to the greatest extent possible for people who are wavering between
choice of ships and/or last-minute booking. Originally, on April
13th, we sent out a circular without the overwriting reminder
shown, to all Travel Agents on the Prairies and in British Columbia,
certain Agents in Washington and Oregon. We repeated the circular
with the overwriting aforementioned, to include Eastern Canada,
with several 100 lists being sent out as a result thereof. We
have advertised senior citizen fares in the "Elder Statesman" and
will feature a repeat ad next week. We have had newspaper coverage in Victoria and Vancouver, and have again inserted a quick-sale
ad in yesterday's paper. Newspaper coverage has been arranged in
Seattle for last weekend and again this weekend, promoting the
spring and early summer sailings, and as previously mentioned, we
have contacted every senior citizen chapter in the Province of
B.C., promoting senior citizen standby reduction fares. Yesterday
we telexed 105 tour operators in the State of California holding
telex machines, bringing to their attention the extra commission
earnings possible on June 16th and 24th sailings, also mentioning
the availability of senior citizen fares.
Form 102-R - 2 -
We have also had six slide presentations to groups around
Vancouver. Our machinery is being taken over to Campbell
River by Ian MacKenzie this weekend, and it will be shown
to CP Air personnel for the next two weeks.
Mrs. Gen Smith, who is Vice-President Sales for Kneisel Travel
in Portland, with whom we have bookings on each sailing throughout the season, and with whom we have had business dealings for
the past several years, attended a Travel Agents Seminar in the
Pacific Northwest a couple of weeks ago. She told me that all
the tour wholesalers in the Pacific Northwest were very concerned with their lack of Alaska sales for the early part of the
season, and also that all the steamship operators appeared quite
concerned with their bookings at that time, so it would appear
that we have been hit by the same malaise at this time of the
year that is affecting Alaska travel, but consider that we
appear to be holding our own.
Inquiries as to why Alaska appears "soft" at this present time,
have more or less confirmed our own thinking, that suggests Bicentennial celebrations in the States are keeping more people
at home for observation of local celebrations; that election
year is continuing to cause people not to travel too far away
from home; money appears to be a little tighter than was
anticipated, and the feeling is beginning to enter into this
area that Alaska cruise fares are getting more expensive and
difficult to sell. It is hoped this is only a temporary situation, but when one appreciates the number of vessels sailing
north, it simply means that the Travel Agent has that much more
to talk about in order to convince his client to take one of
the other ships.
Our relationships with CP Air are well along in the planning
stage of procedural handling, and while this will be a trying
period for this year, we should be well established for the
handling of the 1977 season.
I would like to bring to your attention the very fine job being
done by Barbara Thorn, Beryl Kusch and Linda Scott, who are really
using all their energies towards booking the "Princess Patricia."

Dear Mr. Sigsworth:
It is proposed to alter the bow configuration of our

may improve her earning ability.
The enclosed drawings detail the proposed bow modifcation
and are submitted for approval.
To meet a requirement for the movement of rail cars within
the inner limits of Vancouver Harbour only, it is requested
consideration be given to increasing the ship's carrying
capacity to 1200 tons, or as near to that figure as is
practicable. By reason of an impending contract, your expediting of this approval would be most appreciated.

T°    Memorandum
Mr. M.W.  Holland
I have spoken to Alice Eaton of Browndale Society, and this is
further to our conversation this morning.
These youngsters consist of mentally disturbed children, who are
placed in units numbering not more than three or four. Accompanying each unit is an automobile, which partially explains the
number of automobiles involved. For the movement this year,
therefore, we would be looking at approximately 75 round-trip
adults and 75 round-trip children of teen age, although some will
be half fare, which cannot be determined at the present time.
Therefore, assuming each passenger fare is $8.00, total transportation charges would amount to $1200.00.
The number of automobiles could exceed 40, various types of
vehicles, including station wagons and the odd truck, but -for 40
automobiles round trip, charges would be $800.00 for a total of
$2,000.00.
The main camp will go up the beginning of July, returning the end
of August, and this would appear to be the summer's requirements
for this group. It is difficult to ascertain any group basis, as
these people will not necessarily all move at the same time.
It would appear this is a worthwhile cause; however, from past
experience we have found that great advantage has been taken by
some people associated with the Browndale Society, and you may be
interested in attached copy of letter which was sent to Mr.
Margetts on July 15, 1974, concerning same. However, it was pointed
out to the Society that the extent of our involvement is 75 adults
and 75 children round trip, plus 40 cars, and I am sure they will
be obliged to confine themselves to that total.   I have advised
Alice Eaton that I will get back to her as soon as handling of the
Browndale Society this year has been clarified.

Gentlemen:
I regret the delay in corresponding with you with respect
to your invoice No. 8-76869 in the amount of $90.00, covering trailer rental for six trailers @ $15.00 per day.
As you can appreciate, the assumption of my responsibilities
as Manager, B.C. Coast Steamship Service, has entailed many .
new areas for me, and with perseverance I hope to have the
initial familiarization process behind me soon.
I have reviewed the circumstances surrounding the instances
under question and do regret that they occurred; however, I
am sure that you realize, being a service industry as well,
that we can only do our best to serve all our customers, and
that even in doing so we have operational problems that are
unavoidable. Accordingly, I regret that I must decline payment of your invoice.
I can assure you that your company is a very valued customer,
and we will endeavour to provide you with the best possible
service. We are currently reviewing our present operations
with the intent of making improvements in our service to the
Island, and which will surely be of benefit to your good
company.
I am fortunate in the fact that I have inherited a very capable
staff to work with. Messrs. C.A. Aitken and J.D. Finnie have
my full confidence in all matters relating to the movement of
traffic on B.C.C.S.S vessels; however, if I may be of assistance at any time, please contact me.

ATTENTION: Mr. Tom Byrne
Dear Sirs;
With reference to your letter of May 11, 1976, concerning our
claim for repairs to damaged diesel component*•
We cannot agree that you are not liable for the cost of repairs.
Admittedly, this consignment was received on September 11, 1975,
and not seen by your Inspector until January 6, 1976, but there
is no evidence whatsoever that the damage was sustained while in
our hands.
On delivery and under the supervision of our Shop Foreman, the
cases were moved a matter of only fifty yards from Consolidated1s
truck to the storage area. During that move no incident occurred
that would necessitate our having to open the cartoasto inspect
them for damage. As we had no immediate use for the components,
they were left undisturbed in their protective cartons.
We removed the protective covering in January, 1976, to deliver
the parts to our various vessels and it was then that we discovered
the damage. There were seven pallets each holding fog? power packs.
The pallet in question must have suffered e tremendous blow somewhere
between Hatch & Kirk, Seattle and B.C. Coast Steamship Service,
Vancouver, as two power packs had been jolted completely out of their
wooden forms and struck the two adjacent. All four of these packs
had to be requalified before us<and were sent back to Hatch & Kirk
for this purpose.
...2 — 2 — May 26, 1976
The invoice forwarded with our letter of March 24, covers
disassembling, checking and testing to factory specification.
One cylinder liner was replaced and material cost for this was
$402.00. The balance was for labour and freight from Vancouver.
Alltrans' invoice for $110.00 was to cover return freight to
Vancouver. Your remarks in the final paragraph of your letter
that "no supporting documents of any type to offset the expenditures"
is, therefore, not understood.
I enclose copy of your Inspector's report which you may not heve
on file, also further copies of invoices for repairs and freight
charges.
In the light of the foregoing, perhaps you will kindly reconsider
our claim and advise in due course.
Yours truly.

Montreal, Que.
A.N. Cairns and myself met with Mr. Robin Little, Director,
Marketing Requirement, Boeing Marine Systems, at lunch on
Wednesday, May 19th, to discuss the possible use of the Boeing
Jetfoil in use between Vancouver and the Island. It appears
Mr. L.R. Smith was approached on the matter and he referred
Mr. Little to the B.C.C.S.S.
The attached brochure gives you an idea of the purpose and
capabilities of the Jetfoil. The jetfoil was introduced to
the B.C. Government last fall, and while it met with considerable enthusiasm, the matter was never progressed. Mr.
Davis is going to receive a further demonstration the latter
part of this week. There has been no indication as to the
Government's seriousness on the application of the vehicles,
but I would assume from Mr. Little's remarks at lunch, that the
upcoming demonstration is straight sales promotion.
The whole idea is conceivably viable, but a mammoth study of
operating costs, travel habits, possible terminal locations,
tariffs, etc., would have to be undertaken and completed
before any approach was made to Management on the project.
I certainly did not dissuade Mr. Little in any respect, but pointed
out to him that inasmuch as this was his initial presentation on
the unit to us, we would have to give the concept a great deal
of thought, and asked that he keep us advised with respect to
further developments of both the technology of the machine and
its marketing in this area; i.e., the FBovincial Government's
reception. -,-
The Jetfoil sells for $7.5 million.
I will keep you advised of further events related to this
matter. In the meantime, we will all be giving it some thought.

I would like to express my appreciation of the manner in which
you both handled our problems with the "Princess Patricia."
Your perseverance, tact, and energies turned what could have -
been a very unfortunate circumstance into a problem of an
every-day nature. We hope our problems on the "Pat" will be
minimal in future.
You are now requested to turn your attention to placing the
"Incan St. Laurent" into service on June 1, 1976, or as soon
thereafter as possible. We are aware as to what must be done,
and full approval is given to take whatever action is necessary. Should a cost element arise which has not been considered to date, you are asked to advise me before such cost
is incurred, if possible. I spoke to Fred McFall today, and
he advised he was aware of the track layout problem at
Ketchikan, but did not consider it a hindrance to our progressing
with the contract. Be is currently drafting the contract, which
will include a clause stating they will be responsible for the
fueling of the ship. It would be appreciated if you both would
be available Wednesday to review the terms of the contract which
he will propose.
At the same time, you are given authority to progress as quickly
as possible with the modifications for the "Trailer Princess"
to fit Slip A-l and other slips around the Coast. As you can
appreciate, we are hamstrung on further utilization of the
vessel until such time as the modifications have been completed.
It has been estimated that the required work (materials and
labour) will cost in the vicinity of $40,000. A spec should
be drawn up and a quote received from the shipyard(s) you propose
would do the work. All costs should be accounted for as an
operating maintenance expense and not as a capital appropriation.  - 2 -
You are requested to provide me with a target date by which you
expect to have the vessel ready for service. To emphasize the
importance of this matter, please appreciate that Messrs. Aitken
and Finnie are unable to negotiate firmly with CP Rail for
additional traffic until this project is complete.
I plan to return to *5ontreal on May 28th for approximately one
week. I would appreciate an indication of your action plan
before that date.

"["° Memorandum for File
PROGRESS REPORT WITH RESPECT TO NORTHLAND-BCCS MARKETING STUDY
Since the original meeting between Northland representatives and
those of the BOGS, to initiate this study, the following has
transpired:
On May 4th Messrs. P. Kemp of Van Ommeran Ltd.; L. Fleming, N.
Wood, G. Freizen of Northland Navigation, and Messrs. Yates and
Holland of BCCS, met in the latter's room at the Hyatt Regency
to proceed with the study.
A review was made for the benefit of Mr. Kemp of the discussions
that had taken place earlier, and an outline was given as to the
direction in which the two parties were currently headed; i.e.,
the exchange of information on volumes and revenues.
It was pointed out that before we could progress with the determination of the type of vessel that might be required, an
estimate of traffic volumes was necessary.  In this light, BCCS
had prepared statements of traffic carried on our NEVI service
since its inception; a copy of our tariff and statements related
to cargo movements to and from West Coast ports taken from a
study prepared by the Marketing and Sales Department in late 1974.
In turn, Northland provided statements of volumes and revenues
from northbound traffic to Prince Rupert, Kitimat, Johnston
Strait ports and Stewart; a table of speed and schedule alternatives,
and an analysis of estimated weekly revenues that would be
generated from current traffic.
It was agreed that closer co-ordination was now mandatory and open
communication between staff members of the two parties involved in
the preparation of the groundwork and compilation of cost data. - 2
It was suggested that there were several alternative ways in which
the revenue-expense allocation could be divided; i.e., one main
stream route with stops at intermediary port(s); one non-stop
service to the far northern port(s), with routing to NEVI as at
present, and passenger service via Northland, etc.
Concentration was to be placed on an estimate of volumes that
would be moved in the new service. Once this has been established,
and assuming a positive growth pattern is indicated, the study
would progress to a review of the equipment required.
A further meeting was held between Messrs. P. Kemp, Capt. Fleming,
P. Georges, and the undersigned, on May 5th, in order to establish
a direct contact of the Senior Management of the two parent
companies, and to enable a general understanding to be reached as
to the course of action to be taken. As a result, it was agreed
that the study would be completed in three stages, the first of
which was well under way respecting volumes and revenues.
Stage 2 - Determination of equipment that will be required, and
3 , Implementation of the new service would follow at later dates.
It was agreed that Stage 1 should be completed by mid July and.a report
ready for presentation to the senior officers for their consideration.
It was iterated several times that confidentiality was of the utmost importarcewith respect to this study.
As a result of these meetings, Messrs. Yates and Finnie have been
meeting directly with Mr. Norrie Wood of Northland, and a status
report of progress to date is attached. A further report will be
prepared by month end and will be forwarded to Montreal for their
information.

Dear Sir:
I was recently appointed Manager of the British Columbia
Coast Steamship Service, a department of CP Rail, which
is responsible for the marine operations of Canadian Pacific
Limited on the Canadian West Coast. In my new capacity I
am responsible for the expansion of our marine services -
passenger, automobile, truck and trailer and rail traffic -
between the Mainland and Vancouver Island and along the
British Columbia coast.
Mr. B.D. Margetts was in Malmo this past winter, and in
conversation with Mr. Gustav Rytterburg of the Swedish State
Railways, the subject of hydrofoils was discussed. As we
currently are reviewing present services and will be looking
at alternative modes of transportation adaptable to our
facilities, we would appreciate if you would forward to us
data with respect to costs, specifications and delivery of
your vessel. While our review is only in the initial stages,
such information will enable us to assess our situation for
future projects.
Your attention to this matter is appreciated.

From Mr. M.W. Holland
To Ms. N. Cartwright
Montreal, Que.
This refers to your letter dated May 17, 1976, File 103-1-2, to
Mr. Hocking, requesting a breakdown of cost of sales in various
categories shown in his monthly Passenger Revenue Report.
To bring you up to date, this request was made approximately
one and a half years ago, and the barriers preventing a worthwhile answer still remain. These are as follows:
(a) Food Sales - All materials, consumables and labour used in
food sales, are also used for crew meals
Mr. Driver of CP Hotels did a six-month study
on the subject sometime ago and ended up with
an inconclusive study on the situation.
The operation is not like the East Coast, where
the catering is contracted out. Here you have
persons living on board the ship 24 hours a day,
and the messes are in continual use. Under these
conditions you can appreciate the problem.
(b) News Stand - Cost of goods sold is done on a % basis, and no
"definite" figure is compiled each month. To
do so would require additional staff. Mr. Hocking
controls this through inventory checks at the
appropriate time.
(c) Bar Sales - I believe this is attainable, and Mr. Hocking
will speak to you further on this when he returns from annual vacation the week of June 7th.
These are small answers to a large question. Should you require
further data before Mr. Hocking's return, kindly advise.

Dear Mr. Singh:
I regret you were unable to attend our reception on board
the "Princess Patricia" last week, as I was looking forward
to meeting you and enjoying your good company. Perhaps the
next time you are in Vancouver you would look us up and we
could spend a few moments together, possibly over lunch, if
that should be convenient.
Now that I am located in Vancouver, among other matters a
review is being made of the credit accounts and discount
privileges and their status, with regard to prompt payments.
Sometime ago an arrangement was made between yourself and our
Finance Department at Montreal, whereby 21 days accumulation of
accounts would be permitted. On our last month-end outstandings
April 30th, it is noted March 31st through April 30th are outstanding, and not until May 8th was a payment received for the
March account. This is not in accord with your agreement, and
you are requested to take immediate action to rectify the
situation.
In order to alleviate the necessity of reverting to the emergency
arrangements to settle old outstandings and keep current accounts
up to date, you must realize the necessity of immediately remitting
a sum to cover accounts, based on 21-day accumulation.
Please appreciate this is a matter of general concern; your cooperation would be appreciated.

to tell them to present the third portion or Identification

we will not hold the ship for anyone who hasnot returned to

Please let me know your anticipated final count by morning
of May 28th, and we will appreciate payment being made to the

can be done by one person on behalf of the entire group.
Sure hope the weather warms up, because the cruise can be most
enjoyable on a balmy night.

From m.W. Holland
To Ms. N. Cartwright
Montreal, Que.
This is in reference to your letter of 7 May 1976, regarding a
number of outstanding items related to BCCSS operations.
I apologize for the apparent delay in replying to this memorandum,
but you can well appreciate the circumstances under which we have
all been working out here on the West Coast.
I will report on the items in the same order in which you have
listed them in your memorandum.
Item 1 - I have spoken to Mr. Cooper of Seaspan regarding the
$90.00 per rail car, minimum $450.00, Seaspan has
charged on the Vancouver-Beaver Cove service, and
while I expect no problem in having this item
eliminated; we will do so in our final discussions regarding the overall contract.
Item 2 - Please refer to Attachment A and Mr. Reid's comments
therein.
Now that the fare increases are behind us we will be
looking into this matter in more detail. I expect
that a decision will be made as to whether, and how,
we should progress on this matter, by 31 May. We
have received the format of the planned brochure for
the Bay of Fundy service.
Item 3 - Attachment B refers. The current status with respect
to the BRAC and CMSG is as listed in that memorandum.
We met with S.I.U. representatives on Tuesday, 18
May all day, and held individual private discussions
with the Commissioner, explaining the background of
the negotiations to date and providing an indication
of our stand on the outstanding unresolved matters.
We reviewed each Union request, except the straight
monetary items, which it was suggested by the Commissioner should be left until we have concluded
Form 102-R
2.
J - 2 -
Item 3 (Cont'd.)
the non-monetary points. The next scheduled meeting
is for 28 May at 1000, at which time the Commissioner
has asked that we provide him with a more definite
statement regarding our willingness to move on the
various points.
In general comment, we are quite happy with the Commissioner handling the case, and feel that to date
he has been both objective and considerate of our
overall position.
Item 4 - Our recent telexes regarding the use of the "Incan
St. Laurent," I think will cover your requirements
at this time. We are progressing on a "go ahead"
basis to place the vessel in use in the New Westminster-Ketchikan run for Crowley Maritime Corp.,
carrying loads of pulp south and empties north,
all in 40' box cars. We will, of course, keep you
advised of developments as they occur.
Bel-Aire Shipyard is currently in the process of
installing the CO flooding system on behalf of
Incan Ships. Attachment C refers.
Item 5 - Mr. Finnie is currently in negotiations with CP Rail
Marketing and Sales representatives regarding traffic
to James Island. The type of commodity to be handled
is now lander review and CIL are considering transferring from the high explosive compound to a compound
with a considerably lower explosive factor. Attachments D, E and F refer, and will bring you up to
date as to the current position.
As soon as we have the "Incan" under way, full emphasis
will be placed on modifications to the "Trailer
Princess." A complete report will be provided on the
modifications and the anticipated improvement in earnings that will result from this work being undertaken.
Item 6 - Attachment C refers. Any decision with respect to our
vessel requirements will hinge on the outcome of marketing studies which are currently under way and those
planned.  It is still felt that the "Drottningen" is not
the vessel for service with BCCSS, and the possible
use of the "Queen of Surrey" is currently under review.
Messrs. Cairns, King and Reid have all examined the
"Queen of Surrey" and spoken with the "powers that be"
J - 3 -
Item 6 (Cont'd.)
with respect to the structure and mechanical functions
of the vessel, and we are presently in possession of
drawings for the ship.
As you are aware, Mr. Margetts has spoken with Mr. Mac-
Donald on this subject, who, I believe, is going to
carry the ball a little further fp? us in his discussions with Provincial officers next week. It is
felt that rather than have two ends working against
the middle we should await Mr. MacDonald's report
on his discussions.
Item 7 - Attachment G refers, which will provide you with the
current status. I am in the midst of preparing a
memorandum on our meetings with Northland and Van
Ommeren earlier this month, and will forward it to
you in the next couple of days.
Item 8 - This matter is being enthusiastically pursued, but
we do have problems relating to the total cost
through Vancouver Wharves Ltd. of the cars involved;
however, Mr. Finnie is still dealing with Mr. Leeper
of Marketing and Sales on this subject, and it is
premature at this time to state what the outcome may be.
Item 9 - This will be replied to at a later date when I have
had more time to look into the overall situation.
Item 10 - This study is well in hand, and I will be forwarding
a memorandum to your office early in the week, outlining the progress that has been made and requesting your co-operation with respect to obtaining
figures from Montreal Accounting Offices.
Item 11 - As you are aware, this is my personal responsibility,
and inasmuch as I have the figures here with me, I
shall work on a report this weekend and forward it
to you at the earliest. You may advise Mr. Emmett
that I will try to have the status to him in the
early part of June.
Item 12 - (A) Attachment H refers.
(B) Would you kindly provide us with your assessment
of the current status of this matter, and whether
Mr. McDermott has relayed to you his recommenda-
y - 4 -
Item 12 (Cont'd.)
(B) dations on the position we should take. From the
files here in the BCCSS, this appears to be the
last position.
(C) I will have to check into further and reply at a
later date.
Item 13 - Attachments C and I refer, and it is felt this matter
is now under control.
Item 14 - Attachment C refers.
Item 15 - Inasmuch as we have been in discussion with the Local
Travelling Auditors, I have not completed my report
on this matter, but will do so by the end of the
month.
Item 16 - Attachment A refers.
Item 17 - Attachment J refers. We are very pleased with the manner
in which the Steward's Department is performing, and we
have had compliinentary comments issued by the tour
leaders on our current charter. We feel that each trip
will be an improvement on the previous one, and that
although on this trip we have been working under very
strained conditions with respect to refrigeration
problems and inspection by the Alaskan State Health
Authorities, we have managed most capably, and as I
say, will experience only improvement in the future.
Item 18 - Attachment A refers.
Item 19 - The proposed schedule of annual vacation for BCCSS
Management is enclosed. There will, of course, be
changes to this schedule as conditions demand. All
individuals have been most co-operative in this
respect, and are fully aware that no annual vacation
from this year is to be carried into 1977.
I trust the attached will answer several of your questions
and not add to any of your problems. If you need further
clarification and/or elaboration on any of the points raised,
kindly advise.
5.
J - 5 -
I would like to point out that it is much easier, and I think
more efficient, for us to reply to your questions in this
manner rather than to have a deluge of phone calls day in and
day out. However, any problems of an emergent nature should,
of course, be discussed by telephone, and we will always endeavour to provide you with the information that is required.

On September 4, 1975, • Van Dyke mobile boat, aerial number
3'»3V531052, the property of Mr. Joe Radios, wes damaged at Pier A-3,
Vancouver, when being driven by CP. Transport hoatler.
Thin unit was supposed to bo handled by Triangle Movers but for sons
reaeen the Triangle driver prevailed on the C.P.T. hoatler to pull the
home out of its spot for loading* la the process C.P.T. hostlet turned
too sharply and struck Weston Pacific Tank Lines Tractor Mo. 74* He
wrote the Regional Manager, CP. Tranaport,on October 8, 1975, requesting
payaent for damaged mirror on Weston Pacific's tractor. Cheque for
$25.00 was subsequently received.
Our problem now is the mobile home. Mr. Reding made a claim on
Triangle Movers for the damage but.recently was advised that Saskatchewan
Government Insurance Co. rejected the claim and he ties now approached
us for settlement. Mr. Reding mtates that he has a quotation in the
amount of $759.00 to carry out the repairs.
We are moat concerned about this matter. Mr. Reding'a mobile home
ia atill sitting unrepaired after nine month*.
This damage took place while the home was in the hands of Canadian
Pacific and la another instance of a CP. Traaeport hoatler acting
outside of the conditions of the Hoetling Agreement. We must, therefore,
take the attitude that CP. Tranaport are responsible for the damage.
It would appear that Triangle Homes have taken advantage of the fact
that they were not in control of the mobile home when it waa damaged 2 — May 21, 1974
and have dropped out of the picture altogether.
Will you kindly take thia matter up with CP. Transport and arrange
settlement as soon as possible.
Perhaps C.P.T. should be adviaed to call The Salvage Association
as it is their responsibility.

All of our vessels are Canadian registered and similarly to

immigrant status*
He have only one cruise vessel the "Princess Patricia" and we

first aid if and when required* Our vessel follows the inside
passage route to Alaska and the close proximity of ports makes
it unnecessary to require the services of a physician or

Memorandum
Mr. M.W. Holland
Meeting May 17, 1400, with W.J. McCoy, S.L. Cymet, J.G. Torke,
Eton Hunter, C.A. Aitken, J.D. Finnie, re James Island.
In 1975 we carried 51 Ammonium Nitrate cara to James Island,
approximate revenue to BCCSS $275.00 per car. "CIL are reverting
to slurry and we can anticipate approximately 70 cara per year
@ $400.00 per car. Movement of A.N. cera to James Island would
be drastically reduced.
It would appear that new plant will be built in Alberta; however,
will not affect present volumes into James Island. If plant
located further east than Calgary, rail rate to coast would be
higher and we could expect higher revenue. While CP do not have
an agreement with CIL, all indications are that new plant will
be on CP line.
CIL are looking into trucking coats and CP Bail are looking into
a competitive rail rate. CIL are presently handling slurry on
Prairie8 via truck, and several slurry cara have already been
shipped to James Island. Present rate for slurry approximately
$800.00 per car BCCSS, and this will have to be reduced to $400.00
to meet truck competition. With increased volumes; i.e.:
Present     51 A.N. Cars @ $275.00
Proposed    70 Slurry Cars @ $400.00
$14,025.
28,000.
Annual revenue for all commodities should be $95,000.
No change in present operation at James Island anticipated before
end of 1978, with the exception of addition of slurry traffic and
deletion of A.N. cara.

Dear Sir:
Thank you kindly for your latter written April 3rd concern- '
ing the dissatisfaction your group experienced while travelling
to Nanaimo and return on board the "Princess of Vancouver."
While we greatly appreciate receiving letters of this nature,
We regret that it was necessary for you to write to us.
Great pains have been taken on board the "Princess of
Vancouver" with senior personnel, to ensure that our services
are of the best, and we shall certainly look into the situation aa reported by you.
We fall to understand how you were given advice of an 11:00

at that time on our service, and possibly there could have
been a misunderstanding over the telephone aa to the hour of

In any event, we appreciate the time taken in writing to us as

Dear Mr. Maclsaac:
Thank you kindly for your letter of May 10th regarding increase in fares contemplated by B.C. Coast Steamship Service
on its Vancouver-Nanaimo service.
The whole matter of the fare structure respecting our service has been under review for some considerable time.  You
can appreciate possibly, that costs have risen so high since
1952 that present fares no longer retain any relationship
correspondingly with the rise in costs.  Fares were not increased on the B.C.C.S. Service between 1952 and 1973, when
latterly it became evident that to continue offering a
passenger service, some increase had to be made, notwithstanding the detrimental position such increase would place
our service in, in relationship to the B.C. Ferries' tariff.
Had our Service modestly increased passenger fares by $.25
during the interval mentioned, the passage fare would now
be in excess of $7.00 per person.
It is hoped that a decision will be made shortly respecting
any adjustment in fares; however, for your information the
one fare which will not be changed is the $5.00 Day Excursion
fare which permits tourists the opportunity to travel to
Nanaimo and return during the same day without taking their
automobiles, for the experience of a short sea voyage.
tye do appreciate the time taken in writing to us concerning
this most important feature, and trust ultimate decision
will meet, in part, your concern as expressed in your letter.

CREW MEMBERS
"PRINCESS PATRICIA"
Welcome aboard the "Princess Patricia."
As we embark on the 1976 cruise season with the "Princess
Patricia," I would like to bring to your attention the
value of your individual contributions to its success or
failure, not from the financial aspect particularly, but of
even greater importance, the comfort, pleasure and fond
memories of our patrons, the latter being the most effective
advertising vehicle available to us.
To assist you with a measurement of your own productivity,
and to clarify your responsibilities, the Company-sponsored
benefits, and your personal rights, a Code of Conduct has
been printed and is attached.  You are responsible for an
awareness of its content, and if, after having read it, you
should have any points requiring further explanation, you
should direct your query to the appropriate officer on board
the ship.  The Management of the B.C.C.S. Service will gladly
provide answers to any questions directed to it.
The appointment of Mr. E. Rude as Chief Steward, is an expression
of Management's confidence in his ability to raise the standard
of performance on board the "Princess Patricia," to a level
superior to all other vessels plying the route to Alaska.  He
can only do this with your full co-operation and an all-out
effort by each of you in the execution of your duties.  It is
realized that times of stress will arise, and it will be difficult to maintain your enthusiasm at the optimum - however, self-
discipline must be exercised.  You are requested to remember
that as a cruise ship, we provide a "service," and this demands
satisfaction - customer satisfaction.
In the past, instances have occurred which have caused considerable concern to the passengers, crew, and officers of the
"Princess Patricia."  These situations were the result of an
inability to cope with stress and will not be tolerated in
future.  There are alternatives which any member may take, should
he be unhappy with his lot.  I am, of course, referring to the
grievance procedure and/or resignation.  The actions of every man
or woman on board ship are governed by the Canada Shipping Act,
and its Articles will be adhered to in all cases. - 2 -
Management will do its utmost to endeavour to provide conditions as favourable as possible.  We are always prepared
to listen to suggestions which are of a constructive nature,
and make improvements which are feasible.  We will be conferring with the Master, Purser and Chief Steward after each
trip, and they will convey your ideas.
We look forward to the 1976 season with enthusiasm and optimism.
Service is the input that is required of each of you.  The
patrons demand it, your Supervisors require it, and your
Management requests it.
I am proud to be a part of the B.C. Coast Steamship Service,
and I hope you are too.  Good luck.

RE:     JAMES ISLAND SERVICE
Q^p Form 102-R
CIL presently looking at building one new plant or two small plants
at Ogden and James Island. Rail rate will be governing factor.
Matter presently under negotiation with CP Rail and CIL. I have
informed CP Rail that the BCCSS will not accept any reduction
in revenue this service. No change in present method of operation
before at least 1978.
New regulations with respect to handling of explosives expected.
Dangerous commodities now restricted to Trn.953 west of Calgary
and Trn. 67 local. Cars cannot be humped and must be flat switched.
Possible new restrictions - slew orders through populated areas.
Construction of special 'Yard' to classify and hold cars.
Using 'slurry mix' tracking car carry max. 40,000 lb. compared with
10,000 lb. max. N.G. Present rail rates high because of this,
but may have to be lowered a/c truck competition. This feature will
have to be watched carefully, as we may have to insist on a different
tariff rather than accept their rates.
SUMMARY - When "Trailer Princess" modified, we are in position to
handle this traffic.
CIL may revert to truck, either by choice or by CP Rail
refusing to handle for economic reasons. We, of course,
could provide trailer service for CIL, if they desire.
Attached is projected revenue picture.

FOLLOWING POINTS WITH RESPECT TO RAIL BARGE OPERATION
ADVANTAGES - POSSIBLE REDUCTION IN COSTS FOR WATER MOVEMENT OF RAIL
BETWEEN VANCOUVER AND NANAIMO.  IN ASSUMING THIS REDUCTION IN COSTS
IT SHOULD BE BORNE IN MIND THAT ADDITIONAL COSTS COULD BE INCURRED
BY CP RAIL THROUGH DELAYS AND CHARTERING ADDITIONAL TRIPS TO TAKE
CARE OF RUSH LOADS AND PEAKS.  UNDER PRESENT SYSTEM OF THROUGH
RATES CP RAIL KNOW IN ADVANCE WHAT THEIR TRANSPORTATION COSTS WILL BE.
DISADVANTAGES - 1. INFLEXIBILITY OF SERVICES. UNDER PRESENT SYSTEM
CP RAIL IS OFFERED 5 SAILINGS THROUGHOUT THE DAY MON THROUGH FRI
AND VIRTUALLY UNLIMITED SPACE ON WEEKENDS. ADDITIONAL BARGE SAILINGS
ARE PROVIDED AT NO ADDITIONAL COST TO CP RAIL FOR PEAK AND SPECIAL
MOVEMENTS VIZ. EMPTY BOXES TO MACMILLAN AND BLOEDEL PORT ALBERNI.
2. LABOUR AGREEMENTS AND REGULATIONS FOR T0WBOAT OPERATIONS.
FEDERAL CANADIAN LABOUR CODE STANDARDS WITH RESPECT TO HOURS OF REST
PROHIBIT EXTENDED HOURS OF DUTY FOR MASTERS OFFICERS AND CREW MEMBERS.
THIS HAS RESULTED IN FREQUENT 'BOOKING OFF'BY T#W BOAT CREW AS THERE
ARE SEVERE PENALTIES INCURRED BY CREW IF REGULATIONS VIOLATED.
CONSEQUENTLY THIS CAN AND DOES RESULT IN DELAYS AND LESS NUMBER OF
TRIPS ESPECIALLY IN BAD WEATHER. 3. TUG ASSISTS - CHARTER COSTS FOR
TUGS AND BARGES DO NOT INCLUDE 'TUG ASSISTS' FOR LANDING IN ADVERSE
WEATHER OR TIDAL CONDITIONS. WITH A REGULAR BARGE OPERATION THIS
COST WOULD BE SUBSTANTIAL. 4. TERMINAL HANDLING - EXPERIENCE TO DATE
HAS SHOWN THAT THERE IS A GREATER RISK INVOLVED IN LOADING AND
UNLOADING BARGES AS OPPOSED TO SELF-PROPELLED VESSELS DUE TO
GREATER STABILITY OF THE LATTER. THE MOST SERIOUS MISHAPS HAVE
OCCURRED WHEN HANDLING BARGES.  5. SCHEDULING •■ E 36

Mr. Timpson asked that when I spoke to Mr. Glasner that I should
impress on him that we are looking for a mediated settlement and would
like an indication of what he expects of us and the approach he plans
to make to both parties.
Mr; Timpson suggested that he would like an opportunity to talk to

J VANCOUVER, 13 May 1976.
J.D. Finnie
Memorandum
Mr. M.W. Holland
Following points with respect to rail barge operation:
Advantages
Possible reduction in costs for water movement of rail between
Vancouver and Nanaimo. In assuming this reduction in costs, it
should be borne in mind that additional costs could be incurred
by CP Rail through delays and chartering additional trips to take
care of rush loads and peaks.
Under present system of through rates, CP Rail know in advance what
their transportation costs will be.
Disadvantages
1. Inflexibility of services. Under present system, CP Rail is
offered five sailings throughout the day, Monday through Friday,
and virtually unlimited space on weekends. Additional barge
sailings are provided at no additional cost to CP Rail for
peak and special movements; viz., empty boxes to MacMillan 6
Bloedel, Port Alberni.
2. Labour agreements and regulations for tow boat operations.
Federal Canadian Labour Code standards with respect to -
hours of rest prohibit extended hours of duty for Masters,
officers and crew members. This has resulted in frequent
'booking off by tow boat crew, as there are severe penalties
incurred by crew if regulations violated. Consequently, this
can and does result in delays and less number of trips,
especially in bad weather.
 2/ - 2 -
Disadvantages (Cont'd.)
3. Tug Assists - Charter costs for tugs and barges do not include 'tug assists' for landing in adverse weather or tidal
conditions. With a regular barge operation this cost would
be substantial.
4. Terminal Handling - Experience to date has shown that there is a
greater risk involved in loading and unloading barges as opposed
to self-propelled vessels, due to greater stability of the
latter. The most serious mishaps have occurred when handling
barges.
5. Scheduling - 36 nautical miles between Vancouver and Nanaimo,
and time lost manoeuvring barge in harbour and time loading
and unloading rail, it is not possible to complete two round
trips within a 24-hour period. A regular schedule could not
be maintained as second trip would be in second day. Present
rail requirements indicate approximately 30 cars per day each
direction. Longest barge available is Seaspan 930, capacity
31 40' rail cars. Barge would have to be modified to fit A-3
slip. Based on modifications of former barges; viz., CP Barge A4
and Yorke 11 (now Seaspan 912) capacity would be reduced minimum
of two cars. CP Rail would also have to pay conversion costs
of barge.
6. Special Movements -
(a) Diesel loccnot w@ or HOC cars can only be handled at minimum
10 ft. tide. Under present system frequent dally service
(b) Sparry cars, business cars, high wide loads, rail gangs, etc.

In a recent edition of "The Elder Statesman," also
appearing in local newspapers, was the announcement
by British Columbia Coast Steamship Service of the
availability of a 15% reduction to Senior Citizens
on a standby basis throughout the 1976 "Princess
Patricia" cruise season to Alaska.
We are taking the opportunity of writing to you
direct, should any of your members require additional
information concerning bookings on specific sailings.
The availability of this reduction applies to those
who are able to travel on three days notice, provided
the accommodation made available meets with your
approval.   All that is necessary is for an individual
to indicate that he or she is interested in travelling
on a specific sailing, specifying the approximate type
of accommodation they prefer, and we will contact them
four days before sailing, indicating what space is
available and offering them the tariff rate less 15%.
A current "Princess Patricia" cruise folder is enclosed
for information purposes, and we will be pleased to hear
from anyone in your Chapter seeking information on
travelling to Alaska under the foregoing arrangement.
Collect calls are accepted at 665-2508.  A good range
of accommodation is still available on May 31st and June
sailings.

RE: NEVI TRIP MAY 8/76
"Seaspan Doris" arrived Vancouver 0830 Saturday, May 8th from
Nanaimo with trailers on lower deck only. Vessel sailed 1140.
Delay account heavy and awkward loading.
Due to late sailing time, missed tide in Seymour Narrows,
creating additional two-hour delay. Arrived Kelsey Bay 0305
(5 hrs. late) and one of the Haida Frt. drivers did not wait,
leaving only one driver to handle 17 units. (1 hr. 45 min. term,
time.) Balance of trip normal.

Dear Mr. Rankins
It was with pleasure that we received your letter
of April 29th, indicating that you might be interested in again using the "Princess Patricia*' to
Alaska mid 1977.
We are presently looking at rates for the coming
season, but have not formalised them as yet. Will
be writing to you as soon as possible in this connection.
Believe you received copies of the 1976 brochure;
however, we are sending a few for you, on which to
base any percentage Increase that we may advise at a
later date.
Bookings are excellent throughout this summer, except
the month of June, when we have experienced a few soft
sailings.
During the course of her layover period, the "Princess
Patricia* teas been given a facelifting, with fresh
paint on many of her interior facilities, new carpeting
in some of the rooms, upgrading of the Main Deck aft,
with moving of the ping-pong table up to the Solarium.
Again, it was nice hearing from you, and will be in

Lornex Mines contacted Mr. Leeper re special movement
of concentrates to Vancouver, whenever they wanted their
cars moved by barge for period of time to expedite movement and improve car turnaround.  CP Rail agreed and Lornex
made arrangements with Seaspan.
Vancouver Wharves refused to go along, stating barge movement was at cross purposes with their operation.
Vancouver Wharves were still receiving concentrate cars
from "Craigmont" daily through interchange, and no doubt
concentrates from two directions were not desirable.

home 19 00 that movement was cancelled for Friday and
rescheduled for Saturday.
Arrangements made Friday to make special run with the
"Carrier Princess" on Saturday ex Wellcox 1330.  Division
Engineer phoned Saturday and advised that due to mix-up on
Island, tie gang would not be ready for loading 1330, and
Marine Supt. had "Carrier Princess" leave Nanaimo berth
at 1420 for docking of the "Princess of Vancouver."  That
vessel left Nanaimo 1600 and "Carrier Princess" moved back
into berth.  Tie gang loaded and vessel departed 2000,
arrived Vancouver 2230, vessel tied up at 2400.
As a matter of information, 20 rail units with tie gang.
If moved by barge this would have been 1% barge loads and
men with tie gang would have had to be moved via passenger

CONGRATULATIONS!
As the winner of the Hudson's Bay Company's "Mom's

the opportunity of discussing with you y.our plans
for your Alaska cruise.
As you know, the prize consists of a cruise for two
to Alaska and return on the "Princess Patricia" during
the period from May 31st to September 4th.
Would you kindly contact me at our office on Pier "B"
and let me know when you will be able to travel.  A
copy of our brochure is enclosed, listing the various
sailings during the summer.
As the cruise is quite popular, a few sailings are
sold out, with the best space being available in June,
but after discussing the matter with you, I am sure that
we will be able to provide accommodation to your complete satisfaction.  It is important, however, that you
book as soon as possible, in order that you will have a
wider choice of sailings and accommodation.
Meals are included with the prize, so that your only
expense will be for personal shopping, side trips at some
of the ports (if you elect to take them), gratuities, etc
My telephone number is 665-2502.  Please call me as soon
as you can.

In reference to your recent request for vessel trip costs.
You will find attached statements for all three diesel vessels
giving average trip and per mile costs. I can provide you
with number of trips and mileage steamed each month and data
could be compiled in your office. Please advise if the format
meets your requirements andyor changes desired.
These vessels would not require any start up costs as utilization
is on a year round basis apart from annual overhaul.  In the
case of the Trailer Princess which was out of service for a
period of aporoximately two weeks account strike, vessel was
merely de-activated and could be pressed into service on very
short notice, however, re-activation for one trip would prove
more costly than outside charter for single trip if unit
available.

I am enclosing s copy of a latter received from C.P. Transport on
May 6, and in view of Mr. Verchere's comments it would be appreciated
if you would sort this one out for me and let ma know for sure whether
K. Handle or A. Gardekl ware hauling the trailer at the time it struck
the ramp obstruction causing damage to trailer crossmembers and propane
tanks.
I have a report from 3rd Officer R. Verchere who states that the unit
was driven by K. Handle at the time of the accident. In light of
Mr. Barham's letter, I telephoned him yesterday morning and this is
what he advised me:
"I heard an explosion and when 1 got there e little
fellow got out of the tractor to inspect the damage.
He got in and out of it two or three times snd finally
along came Johnaton trailer driven by A. Gardeki who
pulled it away from the site of the Occident."
It would appear that somebody is not telling the truth. Will you

Dear Wally:
Enclosed please find Excursion Agreement with respect to
Seaspan Ship and Shore Social Club Howe Sound Cruise by
the "Princess of Vancouver," Saturday, June 5th.
We have indicated prime rib of roast beef dinner serving, but
if you have any thoughts of a change, please let me know as soon
as possible.
Also, consider three bars to be ample, one situated in the
Forward Observation Room, one on the Upper Car Deck, and the
use of the Princess Room.
I would consider using the Restaurant facilities; Dining Room
and Blue Room could accommodate 250 people, and two sittings
would accommodate your group.  However, do you wish table set
up on the Car Deck for additional servings and/or for use
during the evening while dancing?
I know it was your group that had the band situated on the Car
Deck for dancing, and will be pleased to know if this will be
the same this year, in order that advice may be given to the
"Princess of Vancouver" for power connections.
It will be appreciated if you will kindly return the Agreement
at your convenience.

We look forward to your visit to Vancouver on May 31st,

damage to Tilden Station Wagon on January 30, 1976, at Fler A-3,
Vancouver.
I regret 1 am unable to egree with your criticise.
Your employee, Henry Segelke, was in the process of parking this
vehicle in ita usual spot when he noticed a trailer being dropped
incorrectly. Instead of walking across the lot to where this was
happening, he drove across in the 8tation Wagon, the property of a
customer.
Aa Mr. Segelke waa making unauthorised use of an automobile in the
area of a trucking operation, the responsibility is undoubtedly his.
If you consider that some fault Ilea within Ideal Fuel, perhaps you
should attempt to recover the $250.00 deductible from them; however,
your reference to damage on the right aide is not understood as under
normal street driving it would indicate evidence of falling to yield
the right-of-way.

Please refer to your letter of April 8, 1976, File
MO-L-2-1.
We regret that possibly due to the transition period
between Managerial changes, your letter of March 5th
was left unanswered, and apologize for the resultant
delay.
For your information, the "Princess Patricia" will
attempt to burn all waste oil in her boilers. All
other vessels contain their waste oil in the ship
until it is collected by tank barge.  If there is a
spill while transferring waste oil to tank barge, it
would be our (the ship's) responsibility.
We would appreciate knowing what the present rating
is, in comparison with the increased premium, assuming
limit will be increased.
The "Princess Patricia" commences service with the
sailing from Vancouver 2030 Saturday, May 15th, but will
perform compass adjustment cruise with invited guests,
sailing 1200 May 14th, approximately two hours, 30
minutes duration.  Termination of the 1976 cruise period
presently is 0900 Saturday, October 2nd.

N.D. Mullins, Esq.
Vancouver, B.C.
On August 14, 1975, a Toyota pickup being used by a
representative from trucking firm, operated by Mr. D.
McQuillan of 4680 - 197A St., Langley, B.C., was accepted for passage between Nanaimo and Vancouver at
the rate of $46.00, charge being computed on the basis
of sea plane floats carried on top of the vehicle.  The
driver tendered Toronto and Dominion Bank cheque No. 7,
as per photostat enclosed, on which Mr. McQuillan subsequently stopped payment on the basis that the tariff
charge was excessive.
McQuillan was contacted on request of our Nanaimo Wharf
Ticket Office to attempt to obtain new cheque, and in
discussion with him concerning what he thought to be an
excessive rate charged for the handling of his vehicle,
it was agreed we would reduce payment to $28.45, following
which Mr. McQuillan promised to forward his cheque in that
amount.
As same was not forthcoming, on September 12, 1975, this
office wrote Mr. McQuillan as per the attached photostat.
As cheque was still not forthcoming, we requested Mr.
Finnie, our Sales Representative, to again contact Mr.
McQuillan and to call on him the first opportunity that
took him into that area.
Telephone calls to Mr. McQuillan's residence reached
other members of his family, such as his wife and mother,
who both apparently had knowledge of the payment and assured
Mr. Finnie that the cheque either had been sent or was
in the process of being sent.
At the turn of the year Mr. McQuillan's home was again
contacted by Mr. Finnie, who was advised that Mr.'
McQuillan was on holidays.  We requested Mr. Finnie to
Form 102-R n
X
- 2 -
contact Mr. McQuillan on his return, and again on
March 8th he was assured that cheque for $28.45 was
forthcoming.
As it was evident Mr. -McQuillan had no intention of
making payment as requested, we asked Mr. W.J. Comer-
ford, Manager, Customer and Agency Accounts, Montreal,
to clear the outstanding in Nanaimo Wharf Ticket Office,
in view of the amount involved; however, before taking
such action we have been requested by Mr. Comerford to
contact your office with request that you issue a demand
letter on Mr. McQuillan for payment, and will be pleased
if you will kindly oblige, providing you concur.
Ticket 5x5 No. 61195, was purchased in Nanaimo on
August 14, 1975, for travel on the "Carrier Princess"

deted April 23, 1976, your file CAS.47.312.182, regarding lease of
the helicopter pad st Pier A-l.
You ere correct in your views that circumstances have changed since
June 1, 1973, with respect to the competitive situation faced by
B.C.CrS.S. for Daman*a traffic and the use of the Haida Transporter
to carry that company'a units. However, being aware of the caassrn
of Senior Management in Montreal caused by their withdrawal from
the B.C.C.S.S. prior to that data, I can well appreciate that every
effort was made to placate their wishes sod accept that it was for
thia reason that the pad waa made available. In this light 1 suggest
you should take the action suggested in your Alternative 2.
Should you wish to discuss this matter further, kindly advise.

Dear Sir:
With reference to your letter of April 7, 1976, file V8570-2,
concerning Account/Security Number 57489.
In November, 1974, our vessel the "Princess Marguerite"

was withdrawn from service permanently. It was subsequently
sold to the Government of British Columbia along with our dock*,
officca and other facilities including the land.
We have no office et 390 Belleville Street or anywhere elae in
Victoria.
It la regretted that we are at a loss to answer your question aa
to "whether or not B.C.C.S.S. functions ca a C.P.R. Importer Related
Company In other areas of the province" but will appreciate your
defining the meaning of the phraaa in order thet we may give you the
Information you require.
Perhaps you will be kind enough to advise?
