RE:  "CARRIER PRINCESS" GROUNDING REPAIRS
Gentlemen:
Enclosed are copies of the invoice covering the cost of repairs to "Carrier Princess" grounding damage sustained in
January 1976.
In addition, there will be an invoice for the repairs to the
starboard propeller as and when these repairs are completed
in the near future by the Dockyard.
In view of the extent of the damage to the propeller, a visual
and "dye check" was made of the propeller shaft, keyways, etc.,
as indicated on Page 1, Item 6 of the invoice. Also an
asterisk has been placed alongside all items which appear to
be commensurate with the alleged grounding.

Mr. A.E. Hilling
Superintendent, Vancouver Division
Vancouver, B.C.
This refers to your letter dated June 7, 1976, Filp/233 (77),
regarding 1977 appropriations.
With respect to the penultimate paragraph of/your letter regarding the relocation of fuelling facilities/to service BCCS vessels,
we believe this problem has been solvecl/at this time, as Marathon
Realty Ltd. have extended lease •privileges to Gulf Oil until at
least the end of 1976, and probablywell into 1977.
In any case, we do not see j rhajz'the cost of providing storage
facilities would be at the cost of the B.C.C.S., but rather to the
account of the suppliers/ yie., Gulf Oil; at least, that is the
position we have t^kenr /
With respect to other /improvements to the piers and storage compound arrangements ajc Vancouver, Nanaimo and Swartz Bay, it would
be appreciated if members of your staff, together with B.C.C.S.
representatives could physically survey the areas concerned and
make a mutually/acceptable recommendation with respect to the
work that tshbuld be undertaken. As you are aware, the B.C.C.S.
is now assessed 70% of the cost of any maintenance work on
these facilities, and I strongly feel that in this position our
considered7'opinions on the proposed work should be heard. In this
way/P^iiy/misunderstanding will be eliminated. Areas of particular
interest to us include yard covering at both Vancouver and Nanaimo;
condition of area between the tracks here in Vancouver; ramp decking
on Pier A-3, and the utilization of the boarded area adjacent to
the Immigration Building.
:ther, we would like to look at providing a covered walkway on the
platforms leading to the passenger loading station, and other incidentals and improvements, such as new mesh in this area. - 2 -
Of course, we are concerned that the scheduling of our vessels
should not be affected by maintenance work, as such action accelerates the cost to the B.C.C.S. in lost revenues.
It is also felt that perhaps there are areas where maintenance
work could be awarded to outside contractors at a co'st less than
we can achieve through our own means; this should be considered.
Please be assured of our full co-operation in these matters, and
your comments with respect to the approach stated above would be
appreciated.

Will you kindly arrange payment of the invoice from Tymoa Cartage &

No. 44.
Thia unit waa transported on the "Carrier Princess" on April 13, 1976,
and copy of waybill is attached.
It is regretted that we have been unable to establish how this damage
occurred but there is no doubt that it happened whilst in our hands,
as it waa reported to our Senior Traffic Supervisor by the Tymoa driver
when he came te pick up the trailer. At that time the legs could not
be raised or lowered account bent landing gear.
It was questioned why a complete set of landing gear waa required when
only one leg was damaged end it appears that thia is an older type of
treiler for which it la very difficult to obtain a matching leg at the
beat ef tinea. In addition, the people who manufacture thia Holland-
type of geer ere presently on strike.
It will be appreciated if payment could be made aa soon aa possible.

Dear Sir: .
I would like to add my hearty congratulations to the many others
which you will be receiving today. I have not been here long and
thus have not had the good fortune of developing a friendship with
you as have many other B.C. Coast Steamship Service personnel.
However, I have heard your name mentioned many times and always in
an enviable and complimentary manner. I am aware of your obliging
and conscientious attitude towards your fellow workers and your
dedication and loyalty to the Company.
We in the B.C. Coast Steamship Service are deeply grateful for
your assistance in our operations over the years. You have taken
on a wide variety of responsibilities for us and I am told that
in many instances you undertook chores well beyond the "call of
duty."
We extend to you and your good wife our sincere wishes for a long
and happy retirement. You will be sorely missed on the piers but
it is hoped you will come beck and visit with us. If we, the B.C.
Coast Steamship Service, can do anything to add to the enjoyment
of your future days, I trust you will let us know.
Again my thanks and good luck.
Yours sincerely,

Mr. E. Robinson      Re: Reservations - Recreational Vehicles
Special care must be taken in the reserving of "other-Chan automobile"
vehicles to avoid conflicting with commercial traffic during the heavier
travelled summer sailings.
Recreational vehicles, motor homes, campers etc. cannot be accommodated
on the upper deck of the Princess of Vancouver due to the limitation of
"heighth clearance" 6*64 and can only be accommodated on lower deck on
certain sailings which are as follows:
From Vancouver "1000 *Carrier Princess
1200  Princess of Vancouver
*When operating in passenger service
From Nanaimo   0800  Princess of Vancouver
1330 *Carrier Princess
1600  Princess of Vancouver
*When operating in passenger service
It is a fact that some passengers will not reveal that they are driving
a vehicle other than an auOemobile and when requests are received for
auto reservations, will reservation clerks ask 'what type of vehicle will
you be driving please" in an attempt to minimize this situation, and
also to be able to quote applicable rate.

possible, without the responsibility of being concerned with
minimum revenue carryings or the high cost of advertising such a

As you are aware, the B.C.C.S.S. has a grave problem with respect
to the settlement of claims made against us for damages to trailers
and other similar type units. It appears that our current policy
ie of a very frail nature and that claims are being aattled which
are beyond our responsibility, both from a value and operations
standpoint. Accordingly I ask that Mr. Jackson act as co-ordinator
and the four of you prepare a report outlining current practice,
statutes and contracts governing our action, strengths and weaknesses
in our current approach and recommendations for a revised policy. I
would appreciate some statistics as to the frequency of claims, the
claimants, value of claims, amount of settlements. These should
cover both damage claims made against the B.C.C.S.S. and by_ us.
Attached is a memorandum prepared by Mr. Jackson on the handling
of trailer damage claims. I think it is an excellent approach to
the subject and I endorse the action which he has suggested. Therefore,
you are requested to convene a meeting among yourselves to drsv up an
action plan listing the areas each of you will review and set a target
date for completion of the project. You will, of course, require the
help of others with expertise in this field and you have my approval

Mr. A.E. Hilling
Superintendent, Vancouver Division
Vancouver, B.C.
This refers to your letter dated June 7, 1976, File 233 (77),
regarding 1977 appropriations.
While arrangements with respect to the fuelling facilities for
BCCSS vessels are currently under discussion, we anticipate that
neither the responsibility of constructing such facilities nor
the cost thereof, will fall upon the BCCSS but rather the supplier,
Gulf Oil Canada Limited.
With respect to other improvements to the piers snd storage compound arrangements at Vancouver, Nanaimo and Swartz Bay, it would
be appreciated if members of your staff, together with B.C.C.S
representatives could physically survey the areas concerned and
make a mutually acceptable recommendation with respect to the
work that should be undertaken. As you are aware, the B.C.C.S.
is now assessed 70% of the cost of any maintenence work on
these facilities, and I strongly feel that in this position our
considered opinions on the proposed work should be hesrd. In this
way, any misunderstanding will be eliminated. Areas of particular
interest to us include yard covering at both Vancouver and Nanaimo;
condition of area between the tracks here in Vancouver; ramp decking
on Pier A-3, and the utilization of the boarded area adjacent to
the Immigration Building.
Further we would like to look at providing a covered walkway on the
platforms leading to the passenger loading station, and other incidentals and improvements, such es new mesh in this area. Of course,
we are concerned that the scheduling of our vessels should not be
effected by maintenance work, as such action accelerates the cost
to the B.C.C.S. in lost revenues.
It is slso felt that perhaps there are areas where maintenance work
could be awarded to outside contractors at a cost less than we can
achieve through our own means, this should be considered.

Nanaimo, B.C.
Dear Mrs. Seifert:
Thank you for your letter of June 10th regarding your trip from
Nanaimo to Vancouver. Constructive criticism presented in the
manner of your letter is appreciated.
Firstly, I would like to mention that this weekend from the noon
sailing Friday to Monday was the busiest of the yesr due to our
lower fares. Our stockkeeper on the ship estimates his weekend
requirements and generally is fairly close. The shelf life of
muffins, cup cakes etc. is three or four days st the most, and
fresh products are not available until arrival in Vancouver at
10:30 A.M. However, if toast, jam, honey etc. are available
people are generally satisfied, but as you mention in your letter,
there also was no bread. On investigation it was noted that
100 loaves of white and 36 brown which amounts to 3264 slices
were supplied on Friday which normally would be sufficient. It
was also discovered that a Dance Cruise Saturday night had asked
for $50.00 worth of sandwiches and coffee but finished up ordering 140 sandwiches which also would have considerable bearing on
the shortage Monday morning.
*
In regards to the dining room not being open on this sailing, we
found that people were not using the facilities, and with the wages
involved, it was uneconomic. We do open for the two busiest sailings, and these again are a borderline operation. I am sorry to
hear the food served two members of your family was practically
cold. This has been taken up with galley staff, as a plate warmer
and covers are available for hot food.
Your suggestion of two lines in the cafeteria has been considered
but it would involve considerable expense. Now that we have competitive fares with B.C. Ferries, and if more Nanaimo people continue to use our facilities, management is already looking to refurbishing and Improvements for the future.
Thanking you again,
Yours sincerely,

We are attaching space availability report number 8/76 indicating that
approximately 87% of the room accommodation for the remaining ten
sailings of the Patricia is booked, together with statement of release
of tour party space. Provided there ere minimal cancellations, we
could realize a 80-84% seasonal occupancy factor.
Tour Parties have had an indifferent response to their Alaska tours
this year including old stand-bys such as Roamer, Thomas and Wayfarer/
U.T.L. has had only partial success in their assignment and new groups
who initially had excellent response to local advertising have fallen
flat. Marcon tours of Detroit who successfully operated tours with us
in the past were plagued by local economic strifeconditions and cancelled
four out of five tours.
Of the cruise ships calling at Ketchikan to-da^£ only the Island Prinness
(1 trip) has been full. The Prinsendam and Renaissance are about 78%
full, the Cunard Adventurer is reported to be in trouble with rate
cutting outlined in the attached ad. The iun Princess has been operating
around 70% and the Pacific Princess appears to be in trouble. The
Xanadu is reported to have called at Ketchikan last week with only 32
passengers on board. The Fairsea started slowly but appears heavily
booked for the rest of the season.
Waitlist, standbys and employees are being guaranteed accommodation,
and key travel agents are repeatedly being phoned. Newspaper ads will
be tried at times when Cunard's influence will not be competitive.
Senior Citizen ads were featured again and any inquiries were given
promise of guaranteed accommodation, but latterly didn't amount to
anything beyond Information seekers.
The disruption in air service in Canada if prolonged could add to our
problems and already Horizon Holidays have had to make adjustments in
one of their tours - fortunately not drastic.
A recently held motel/hotel convention in Anchorage and Seattle
terminated with the forecast of no growth factor in Alaska for 1976.
Some of the reasons put forth for the softness in Alaska travel this
year are:
..2
V Mr. P. Georges
23 June, 1976
Page Two
) i
1. Attractive air fares and deflated U.K. and foreign currency
heve made European travel very productive during May and June.
2. Bi-Centennial local activities in the United States appear
to be holding some people back from extensive travelling
in 1976.
3. U.S. election year which historically has indicated less
travel in Canada.
4. Economic conditions in some parts of the U.S. resulting in
tighter money.
To elaborate on No. 1, I had the opportunity of speaking to Mr. Norman
Kneisel whose hotel and business holdings in Alaska have been very
well patronized for several years and with whom' we have had space
on the Patricia assigned for many years. I posed the question to
him what his opinion was concerning the decrease in Alaska popularity
and whether or not it reflects a change in the popularity of Alaska
cruising and interest in the State of Alaska. Norm had just returned
from an extensive tour of the Eastern and Mid-Western States and acknowledged
that the fact here was that a downward trend was indicated, but in his
considered opinion the prime reason was the attractiveness of European
travefr this year from the viewpoint of depressed European money value.
He also indicated that he felt that there was no decrease in Alaska interest
but the opportunity of travelling to Europe at such reasonable rates and
conditions was too good to pass up and this is where the majority of people
were headed for this year.
Kneisel Travel have presented us with a request for 20 rooms on each
sailing of the 1977 Princess Patricia season which, after deliberation,
we have agreed to assign.
Further Information will be passed along as the season progresses.

Dear Sir:
We have received refund application on your behalf requesting

between Nanaimo and Vancouver. As you ere aware, the reservations are available for automobiles via Canadian Pacific
Ferry Services, the advantage being that you don't have to wait
in line for an indefinite period of time awaiting passage between
the Island and the Mainland. When tickets have been issued to
cover an automobile assignment that space is assured the passenger
that his automobile will be carried on the sailing on which reservation has been confirmed. Unless the reservation has been cancelled,
any other passengers who may be standing by are unable to purchase
tickets on many occasions because of a sold out sailing. If the
ship departs without people showing up the ticket office is unable
to sell tickets for the vacated automobile space and revenue to
which the company is entitled by reason of its reservation system
is lost.
As it was indicated you did not cancel reservation and travelled
by B.C. Ferries, refund has been based on the unused passage portion of ferry tickets and I regret to advise refund has been
declined on the non-use of automobile reservation assigned in
your name.
C.P. Rail values the patronage of its customers and regrets having

Kindly note that Peter Varsek and Clayton Rouse have already been

others listed is somewhat remote as they are all students and will
probably be returning to school prior to the end of our cruise season
which, as you know, leads to a very difficult staff situation if too
many students are employed. We now have sufficient students for our

Recently we spoke of Dance Cruises which are held on board the
"Princess of Vancouver," and you requested information on their
handling.
You will recall our conversation when going through the Aft
Observation Room on the Upper Deck, when you were shown over the
vessel. Because of CSI we cannot improve the appearance without
replacing the covering and installing sprinkling facilities - a
consideration in the near future! In its present condition, the
opening into the room forward must be left open, which, during
late fall and winter precludes the use of the area due to
draft and coolness. Therefore, the only suitable time is late
spring and summer.
Usually, every Saturday evening from mid May to early October is
reserved by groups between 50 and 100, and prior to July and
August quite often on Friday evenings. Due to the amount of
traffic handled during July and August on Fridays, we will not
accept Dance Cruise groups, because we do not have the facilities
to cater properly to them under such conditions.
I have enclosed copies of information letters used since 1973,
reflecting service and rates.
We decided to eliminate items "C" and "D" and concentrate only
on "A" and "B".
The rate of $10.00 is made up of $4.00 passage (special rate) and
$6.00 foodj insofar as Purser's 373 reporting is concerned.
A close approximation of costs for groups of 100 is as follows:

Dear Mr. Millar:
It was with regret we learned from your letter of June 23rd
of the cancellation of your Alaska trip this year, having
had the privilege of Thomas Tours Inc. travelling with us on
several occasions.
1976 has turned out to be a most unpredictable year insofar
as the Alaska cruise business is concerned. There are many
contributing factors; to mention a few, Bi-centennial celebrations and election year; depressed money in some U.S. areas,
and the favourable climate in Europe from the viewpoint of the
deflated pound and other foreign currency. Whether It is a
combination of the foregoing, or other specific reasons, it
would help us greatly in formulating our future plans, if you
would take the trouble to give us your observation on the
difficulty you have had in promoting Alaska during the current
season, also, should your tour have been booked on another
steamship line to Alaska, if there has been an attractiveness
in any areas via that service that we should be looking at.
In appreciation for past patronage.

from our operating point of view, which, as you will note, makes
the final demolition cost our cost, to do business in the present
For us to obtain fuel from another source, or by other soothed,
we would anticipate sow additional cost over what we are now
or would be paying. I would recoasend we add as a condition of
contract that BCCS be perjsitted first priority and/or exclusive
use of the north face of the Gulf dock at no oast to BCCS.
One may consider that in vtmr of our continuing need for layover
berthing of our ships, the demolition costs could be looked upon
as a form of dock rental.

From R.R. Reid
To Mr. P.I. Georges
Montreal, Que.
With reference to the 1977 cruise season of the "Princess Patricia."
We are currently negotiating five Alaska charters, May 15th and May
23rd, September 12th, 20th and 28th. Hawaiian Polynesia are protected on the May 15th and September 12th sailings, and Pioneer
Tours May 23rd and September 20th. Western Canada Shrine are
currently negotiating with us for September 28th sailing, with the
possibility we may delay by one day the departure of this cruise
to conform with their itinerary request.
As discussed briefly with Mr. Margetts when he recently visited
Vancouver, in view of the "softness" of the Alaska cruise industry
this year, Mr. Holland and I are in agreement that we should be
cautious in the amount of increase for the 1977 season; i.e., to
the extent of only 10%. This will mean that charter costs will be
increased $15,000.00, from $150,000.00 to $165,000.00. Both
Hawaiian Polynesia and Pioneer Tours are at the point of considering offers by other cruise lines with larger and more luxurious
vessels, whose charter costs are apparently attractive to them,
from the viewpoint that while they feature an economy cruise on
the "Princess Patricia," they would project their wholesale
activities to a more deluxe cruise on the larger vessels. For
this reason, should a charter cost of $165,000.00 become problematical,
we would wish flexibility in reducing it by $5,000.00 in order to
maintain their charters.
Statement is attached for your comparison of the estimated percentage and revenue for 1976, the actual percentage of occupancy
secured to date, and as revised for 1976, together with actual
revenue received to date and as revised for the rest of the season.
Please understand that it is most difficult to attempt to project
the remainder of this year's revenues because of the erratic manner
of normal group operators and individuals being experienced by us,
together with the effect of the Cunard ad, which has now been extended through the entire summer. For that reason, the total re-
Form 102-R
J - 2 -
vised figure for 1976 could be much better-or worse than as
shown.
Our advertising people have suggested using radio coverage in an
effort to assist us in improving our 1976 situation, and will
advise you of the programme when finalized.
Indications received from people with a long association in the
Alaska industry, would indicate a better year for 1977, and on this
basis we have been conservative in our forecast for the occupancy
factor, basing the 10% increase on those occupancy factors as
shown in the right-hand column of the attached statement.
Mr. Hocking and I have had a thorough discussion on expenses for
this year, and it is too early to evaluate the picture, as we
have not had a full month's normal season sailings as yet; however,
of the original forecast expenses of $2,945,400.00 there has been
a saving in maintenance of approximately $40,000.00, and we have
effected savings in the Catering Department on the second, third
and fourth sailings, which have yet to be appreciated. We will
therefore have to follow up this letter with an indication of
expenses when same can be better appreciated.
We are also attaching "Princess Patricia" expenses as worked up
by Bill Hocking, on which Mr. Holland originally agreed we should
go for a 10% increase, in which I certainly concur. We therefore
request your consideration of this increase and approval to proceed with the printing of our brochure, which is normally commenced at this time of the year, in order that it can be made
available by early October for mailing purposes.

Concerning your clain for deamgs to Standard Oil trailer #8065

As you know this and trailer #8066 was the subject ef such
correspondence but now that clain en #8066 has now been settled,
we will take another look at your clein on #8065*
It would appear from your latter of February 17, that you were
under the impression that our Traffic Supervisor, R.D. Policy,
prepared a damage report on both #8066 and #8065 as you have
lumped the two amounts together. This is not the case. Report
for #8066 only was completed and we have no record of trailer
#8065 sustaining damage on January 13, 1976* If you heve such
s report on file, we will appreciate receiving a copy.
•i
In view of the small amount involved, however, we have arranged
te pay the claim and cheque should reach you in about three weeks.
It will be appreciated if in future you do not deduct your unproven
claims from your outstanding trailer accounts, am  this only Involves

It is observed that in some instances the mode of uniform dress
of Officers throughout the fleet has fallen below the acceptable standard. While the problem of supply is sometimes
applicable and understandable, each Officer is nonetheless
expected to maintain the expected standard of appearance, dress
and decorum, particularly on those ships in passenger service.
It is therefore incumbent upon the Master to ensure that dress
and appearance requirements of Officers on duty are maintained
at all times.
The Master will ensure this letter is distributed to ALL

Dear Mr. Brennan:
In connection with the operation of our Alaska cruise ship,
the "Princess Patricia" to Skagway, Alaska and return, we
are anxious to include in our film library, information pertaining to the life cycle of salmon.
We were hopeful last year of arranging for tour of a fish
cannery while the ship was in Prince Rupert, but this has
not been possible. As an alternative we understand you have
a film that might be suitable for showing on board our vessel,
and we would appreciate knowing if it is available on a
rental basis throughout the season, or on loan on certain
sailings.
We are enclosing our current Alaska brochure outlining the
scheduled sailings, in addition to which there will be three
charters operated, departing Vancouver September 12th, 20th
and 28th.
We will be pleased to hear from you if this film is available
on part-time loan, rental, or full season's use.
Yours very truly,

CP Air and CP Rail (British Columbia Coast Steamship Service)
have entered into an agreement whereby CP Air will act as
General Agents in North America for the promotion of the
"Princess Patricia," operated by the British Columbia Coast
Steamship Service to Skagway and return.
Under this arrangement, Travel Agents will be able to issue
CP Air MOO's to cover cruise fare. Additionally, reservations
may be made directly through CP Air offices, in which case
they similarly will issue MCO's to cover cruise fare.
We have agreed to allow CP Air 15% commission where a Travel
Agency is involved, allowing the Travel Agent 10% commission and
CP Air 5% override, and presume the 5% override will be adjusted
in respective accounting reports. Where CP Air handles a booking exclusively, we have agreed that CP Air will be accorded a
10% commission, and presume that this similarly, will be
handled between respective Accounting Departments.
Should further clarification be required, it will be appreciated
if inquiries are directed to this office.

ISSUED 1 JUNE 1976.
EFFECTIVE 1 JUNE 1976.
HANDLING OF UNUSED B.C.C.S.S. FERRY PASSAGE
TICKETS BETWEEN VANCOUVER AND NANAIMO
Due to the increase in tickets being returned for refund, as a result of passengers
making automobile reservations, purchasing tickets, yet travelling via B.C. Ferries
without cancelling reservations, resulting in "No Shows," which represent lost
revenue to B.C.C.S.S., the following regulations are effective immediately.
Wharf Ticket Offices at Vancouver and Nanaimo have been supplied with a stamp
reading as follows:
"BEING A NO SHOW CAN BE COSTLY
If space reserved for vehicle is not used by ticket-holder or
has not been cancelled by holder three hours prior to scheduled
sailing time of the ship, no refund will be made of charges paid.
Phone Nanaimo 754-2331
Phone Vancouver 665-3142
This stamp is to be affixed on the face of ticket envelopes in which all B.C.
Coast automobile reservation tickets are to be placed when sold, and drawn to
the attention of the purchaser. Tickets received for immediate refund (P.T. 50)
unless space has been cancelled thereon and so indicated on the reverse of the
automobile checks, are  to be declined and forwarded with P.T. 59 application
form to this office, with reasons for non-cancellation.
Attached to this circular to Ticket Offices in Vancouver, are monthly numerical
sheets. The number opposite the date is to be given to the passenger when
phoning for a space cancellation, with request that it be endorsed on the reverse side of the automobile ticket, which will identify factual cancellation
within three hours of the sailing time of the vessel on which space was held.
Provided this number appears on the reverse side of auto checks, immediate
refund may be effected when tickets are presented for refund at Vancouver and
Nanaimo offices, in accordance with refund procedure contained in Circular 3-5
All Regions.
Extenuating circumstances will be taken into consideration by Manager, B.C.C.S.S.
regarding reason for non-cancellation of transportation submitted for refund
consideration under the authority of this circular.
All members of respective Ticket Offices are to be thoroughly knowledgeable in
the foregoing.

CP AIR REPRESENTATIVES:
CP Air and CP Rail (British Columbia Coast Steamship Service)
have entered into an agreement whereby CP Air will act as
General Agents in North America for the promotion of the
"Princess Patricia," operated by the British Columbia Coast
Steamship Service to Skagway and return. CP Air representatives will be supplied with current Alaska sailing brochures,
being forwarded under separate cover, in order that when
visiting Travel Agents they may be able to leave a supply of
the brochures with Agents who have not received, or have exhausted their supply, and at the same time advise Agents that
they may now request "Princess Patricia" Alaska reservations
through the same CP Air reservation source that they use for
CP Air reservations.
CP Air Customer Service, Vancouver, B.C., have now arranged
availability procedures for the remaining 11 sailings of the
"Princess Patricia" during 1976. On receipt of calls directed
to the Vancouver Tour Desk, representatives will contact
"Princess Patricia" Reservation Bureau situated in Pier "B"
at the foot of Burrard Street in Vancouver, B.C., for assignment of accommodation requested. When accommodation has been
confirmed to the Tour Desk, the applicable rate, deposit required, option dates for both deposit and final payment, together with Travel Agent's commission, will be quoted. As
the "Princess Patricia" tariff is quoted in Canadian funds, the
equivalent U.S. dollar value will be quoted at the current
rate of exchange as advised CP Rail offices by Vice-President,
Finance, Canadian Pacific, for bookings arranged in United States.
Travel Agents are to issue CP Air MCO's for deposits and final
ticketing, indicating thereon the names of their clients, the
sailing date and cabin assigned, together with the gross rate
collected, indicating Canadian dollar equivalent in brackets,
which is required for accounting purposes by Purser, "Princess
Patricia." Commission should be deducted from the gross sale
only, at the time of final ticketing; in other words, commission
must not be deducted from deposits. 2 -
Travel Agents' are accorded a 10% commission on final ticketing
of bookings, with an override to CP Air of 5%. Should a booking be finalized by CP Air on behalf of a client' who prefers to
deal directly with a CP Air source rather than a Travel Agency,
CP Air will derive 10% commission on the gross fare.
"Princess Patricia" Reservation Desk will confirm to the initiating office by letter, full information pertaining to
the accommodation assigned to the Vancouver CP Air Tour Desk.
A slide presentation and tape, of approximately 12 minutes
durationr  about the "Princess Patricia," are available and may
be secured for special showing by contacting Mr. Reid, Asst.
Manager, collect, Area Code 604, 665-2502, short of advice being

Your letter of 4 June, File VAN 58A/76 UD, in which you advise
that your driver noted some damage to CP Transport Trailer No.
23009 during an inspection on 17 May 1976.
Is there any possibility that this is the same damage sustained
on 23 March 1976, when it collapsed under 52,000 lbs. of beer
on the deck of the "Princess of Vancouver?" You will perhaps
recall that Mr. Logan of the Salvage Association telephoned and
asked if you required their services, which you declined.
Details of the incident, including photographs of the damage
are in the hands of the Freight Claim Agent.
Will appreciate being advised of details of damage noted by
your driver on 17 May, to see if they match up with copies of
photographs taken after the 23 March incident.
We have no record of Trailer #23009 being damaged at any other
time or place.

Quite often BCCSS employees will ask us why our Department does not
advertise its ferry services. To those people who have asked us,
we can only reply they do not read newspapers or do not listen to
local radio stations.
Several thousands of dollars are spent each year in the promotion
of our Vancouver-Nanaimo ferry services, as it is considered to be
an essential segment of the economy of this Department. Too often
carelessness or laxity has created criticism from our passengers,
and Supervisors of this Department will be on the lookout for
evidence of this nature, with appropriate action being taken.
Courtesy over the telephone by our Ticket Office staffs is of paramount consideration. Abrupt, curt statements must not be used, no
matter how busy an individual may be with his or her own responsibilities. When availability of space closes out any given sailing, passengers must be encouraged to take alternative sailings,
or be listed for cancellations. Supervisors in Vancouver and
Nanaimo Wharf Ticket Offices must monitor telephone conversations
and assist Reservation and ticket personnel with any problems that
occur, or encourage them to adopt a more pleasant manner of speech
and action, where it is considered necessary. The amount of dollars
spent on advertising can be lost very quickly by an "I don't care"
attitude.
With the increase in passenger fares effective June 7th, we are concentrating on encouraging passengers to travel via BCCSS route,
and have introduced new fares, with which you are now familiar.
Form 102-R - 2 -
A copy of a newspaper advertisement concerning the introduction
of commuter fares was recently published in local newspapers, and
will be repeated on several occasions, the size of which is
evidenced by the attached copy. This considerable investment to
promote our service has been further extended through increased
budget appropriations for advertising during 1976.
In the final analysis, when all is said and done, it rests with the
Ticket Offices and their attitude to the travelling public in
making reservations and assisting them with their problems, and
shipboard personnel in their attitude of welcoming and handling
passengers on board ship, whether or not we have the same people
desirous of travelling with us again.
This Department is most interested in its passenger operations
and intends upgrading its passengers areas on its vessels throughout the coming year. It requires the assistance of all personnel
to continue the B.C.C.S.S. tradition of satisfactory service on
the West Coast. It is intended that the contents of this letter
be promulgated to all personnel under your respective authority.

As you are aware, I.C.B.C. are the ruling body, and they have

no question of Ideal Fuel being held at fault.
Your driver had no right whatsoever, to use a customer's

Reference your letter of May 11, 1976, File VAN 18A/76 W, concerning damage to T.P. Trailer #29-2245.
X cannot emphasise too strongly that report forms completed by
our Traffic Supervisor are in no way an admission of responsibility
on the part of B.C. Coast Steamship Service. These are merely
the recorded words of the hostler who has drawn the damage to
our attention.
You state that the trailer was in our "service," which is, of
course, an incorrect statement, as we did not use the unit.
The fact that the trailer was shipped on February 12th and left in
our yard until February 16th, is your own responsibility, and
there is no evidence that the unit was damaged in transit. It
could easily have beer, damaged in the yard, as your driver did
not bring the damage to our attention until the day it was
picked up.
Me have no alternative, therefore, but to reject your claim.

Effective June 7th, as you are aware, the increase in passenger
fares comes into being between Vancouver and Nanaimo.
You must watch reporting of tickets carefully throughout the
summer, in view of the number of advance sale tickets made prior
to the issuance of passenger tariffs, reporting value shown
thereon rather than the tariff rate effective June 7th.
Passenger Tariff 7-5 clearly indicates the endorsement that will
be made on special fare tickets, and these are. to be watched
closely for proper reporting and revenue.
Insofar as commuter tickets are concerned, the value of each
passenger ticket honoured should be reported at $3.20, and
each automobile ticket at $8.00. Should you have any concern
regarding the foregoing, please contact Manager's office.

With reference to your letter of 30 April, File VAN 52A/76 UD,

Once again we are faced with the problem of repetition in reporting of damage by your driver. It was reported as sustaining the
same damage on 2 April 1976 and 7 May 1976, and we have been unable to establish how and when said damage occurred. It would
appear on occasion your drivers do report old damage. '
Incidentally, damage was reported in the very same area on Weston
Trailer No. 955 on 20 May.
If you refer to my letter of today's date on File T-75-30-54, you

Your letter of 7April 30th, 1976, File VAN 50A/76 UD concerning

Trailer 954, and my reply of January 14, 1976. There was some
confusion at that time as to the trailer involved, which could
have been 955.
Our Agent at Nanaimo states that this damage has been evident for
some time and we are of the opinion that it should be repaired,
to prevent repetitious reporting by your driver.
It was reported on February 5, March 30, and May 20, 1976.
Responsibility for this damage is, of course, denied.

We have received your invoice to cover repairs to your Trailer

Our Traffic Supervisor's report and your letter of April 15th,
state that only one leg was damaged (bent) , yet your invoice
covers labour and material to replace one complete set of
landing gear.
This, of course, is completely out of line, and-suggest you
submit a revised, invoice to cover the cost of repairs to the
one damaged ft©f^-before your claim can even be considered.
It is also noted that you have charged labour at $30.62 per

It was very good of you to write to us concerning the new
appointments made in our Catering staff, and I hope to take
the opportunity to advise our Senior Management of your good
wishes.
As mentioned in my letter of May 27th, hopefully we will be
able to advise you of our charter rates within the next week

It seems this must be the year for poets to be casting their

Following our discussion yesterday afternoon, we are pleased
to attach copy of letter received from Jim Trieloff, about
whom I made reference, concerning his complimentary comments
re changes effected on board the "Princess Patricia." We
have been favoured with Hawaiian Polynesia's business for
several years for full ship charters, spring and fall.
They have been actively solicited by Westours' Princess Cruise
Lines for their charter business and have indicated that our
price range for charter service is rapidly approaching the
category of their either continuing with us on an economy
budgeted tour, or taking the deluxe cruise offered by the
other steamship companies, with not too great a spread between
the charter rates. When discussing this with Mr. Trieloff on
board the "Patricia," he said that our charter rates were
still within the 'ball park,' and having discussed this matter
with Mr. Holland, we are hopeful of reaching a decision within
the next few weeks for 1977 charter rates.

Thank you kindly for your letter of May 24th requesting 1977
Wayfarer Alaska Programs.
We are pleased to register your request as usual, which is
the first to be received so far this year for next year's
programme.
It would be very fortunate if your visit to Vancouver coincided with the arrival of the "Princess Patricia" later
this month, in order that you might have a look over the vessel
and see the changes we have effected on her. However, know
how busy you are, and will just trust that your itinerary may
coincide. For your quick reference, the dates are June 8th,
16th, 24th and July 2nd.
We are sorry to see that the number of your tours is decreasing,
and hope this does not reflect a downward trend respecting
interest in Alaska from your part of the United States. In any
event, will look forward to seeing you and discussing this
further.
Please accept this letter as a confirmation that we will accommodate your groups as requested, with an assignment similar
to that arranged for 1976, with actual cabin numbers to

Dear Mrs. Howard:
We wish to acknowledge your letter of May 24th outlining the
circumstances of the injury to your daughter's finger when
drying her hands in the ladies' washroom on board the
"Carrier Princess," sailing from Vancouver 4:30 p.m., May
24th en route Nanaimo, with injury being caused shortly
prior to arrival in Nanaimo.
We certainly apologize for any untoward comments expressed
by Cashier on board the "Carrier Princess." We do not
tolerate abusive language to passengers, and this matter
has been looked into and employee advised accordingly of her
conduct. ,
First Aid kits are readily available on all B.C.C.S.S. vessels,
with sufficient provision for assisting passengers with minor
injuries, and officers on board are trained in the application
of first aid. Mrs. Robson considered the removal of the band
aid which had been affixed by another passenger on board,
might give your daughter additional pain and/ or discomfort,
considering the extent of the injury which you claim occurred.
As the vessel was within 10 minutes of arrival at Nanaimo, she
thought it best that you take your daughter immediately to the
emergency hospital for proper medical attention. As there
appeared to be no blood seeping from the injury, Mrs. Robson
considered her action to have been a correct one. Quite often
decisions are difficult to make, but concerning the circumstances of the nearness to port, we feel that Mrs. Robson did
exercise good judgment in this respect.
Ointment of any kind must be applied reservedly, due to the
possibility of people being allergic to same. There is a
solution for water treatment of cuts, but with the extent of
the injury, it is doubtful if it could have been remedied by
this action. o
2  -
We regret the occurrence and the inconvenience to your trip
to Nanaimo, and please be assured that employee concerned
has been suitably reprimanded for her apparent abusive
attitude towards you and your daughter.
Yours very truly,

Dear Mr. Welch:
This refers to my letter of April 7, 1976, your File N-l-8-76,
concerning forthcoming negotiations with the Stewards and
Galley Staff, and to telephone conversations between yourself
and Mr. Timpson.
As stated by Mr. Timpson, the negotiations with the S..I.U.
group are close to finalization, and the Guild contract, open
since January 31st, has been on a standby basis, awaiting the
results of the S.I.U. sessions. It is hoped to begin negotiations with the Guild forthwith, and to commence negotiations with
the Stewards and Galley Staff as early as possible in July.
Naturally, the same retroactivity allowances as in the past will
apply in the present round of negotiations.
Yours very truly,
M.W. HOLLAND
