Dear Ken:
This is in reference to your letter of 24 May re our operations
at Kitimat affecting Local Union 6611.
Please be assured that it has always been my intention; i.e.,
policy, to discuss any changes with Senior Union Management
personnel that would affect employees in our Service coming under
the Union's jurisdiction.
You are correct in that we are looking at changes in our operation,
but we are most happy with our association with your good organization and will endeavour to protect, to the best of our ability,
employment for those not only currently engaged with us, but in
changing/expanding operations, if any should take place.  I do not
believe in adding to any environment of uncertainty through premature conjecture, as in my estimation this causes unnecessary-
stress and xrorry, when often such plans are never executed; thus,
I have not contacted you directly.
I would very much like to meet with you along with the appropriate
BCCS - Northland officers, for talks of a general nature, and
would suggest that I would be willing to come to Kamloops at your
convenience.
Please be assured of our full co-operation and open discussion
regarding any changes which might affect your membership.
Yours very truly.

Further to discussions this morning, you are requested to undertake
the following:
1. To investigate the availability of containers 8' in height
currently sitting at High River, Alta., and if you are able
to reach a satisfactory arrangement for their transport,
including the cost thereof, to discuss the matter further with
me.
2. To insert as part of your control manual a section on loading
of barges by specific plan.  While I can see where this would
be somewhat restrictive in the smooth loading of this equipment, the economics could prove to be well worth the
inconvenience.
3. I will ask somebody to try to obtain the hearing and subsequent
ruling related to Gleason's presentation in the East which
resulted in the Unions being denied protection of the 50-mile
radius re stuffing and destuffing of containers.
4. In future, kindly forward your expense accounts to this office
for approval and payment, per my conversations with Mr. A. Light-
body of 30 May.

Dear Mr. Rader:
Mr. Margetts has advised me of his meeting with you and the discussion held with regard to CP Rail Alaska Cruises' possible acquisition under lease to purchase of the "Mercator One."
You undoubtedly are familiar with this vessel, but as we have
contemplated certain conversions to her, I am now pleased to
enclose for your appreciation, a resume of cabin facilities and
public areas.  While our scheduling plans for a winter operation
of this vessel remain inconclusive, I am also enclosing some
suggested schedules we are looking at, and will be pleased to
learn if there is any interest in mutual co-operation.
Naturally, we are interested in chartering out the.vessel; however,
if this is not possible, then we would consider continuing to crew
her with Canadian crew and operate in one of the areas on the suggested itineraries.  The "Mercator One" will remain a foreign bottom,
but we will have to crew her with Canadian crew wherever we operate
the ship, because of local Union(s) concern.  We are presently
putting together an appreciation of costs and revenues from which
to derive a daily operating and revenue figure.
We will be pleased to answer any queries you have concerning the
"Mercator One" and meet with you in this connection at your
convenience.

Attached is copy of memorandum from Mr. B.D. Margetts regarding a
barge ramp which is available here in Vancouver.
Would you kindly pursue the matter further and provide me with
your written assessment as to its suitability for our service,
if not at this time, in the future, for cost at such ports as
Ocean Falls, Stewart, etc.
Your early attention to this is requested, which should include

Concerning invoice received from Western Canada Steel Limited
in the amount of $379.62 which you have notated to the effect
■that it relates to the mishap at Nanaimo when the P.O.V, listed
to starboard and damaged 29 facing planks on the starboard
horseshoe.
Harbour Pile Driving Go. Ltd. invoice in the amount of $12,398
shows that this work was completed on November 25, 1977i whereas Western Canada Steel invoice indicates that the spikes were
delivered to the site on December 7,   1977.
Manager, Insurance and Fire Protection, has therefore rejected
the Western Canada Steel invoice on the grounds that the material was not used in damage repairs caused by the P.O.V., and
to this I agree. Will you kindly let me have your comments on
it so that we may have the appropriate adjustments made in the
account.
I am returning photostat copy of the invoice.

Dear Mr. Knight:
I have received your letter of May 18, 1978 requesting a refund
on ticket BCS 5x10 No. 434168.
With the purchase of each and every automobile ticket, the purchaser
is given a ticket envelope outlining this company's cancellation-
policy. This policy is repeated in our tariffs, which are open
to public inspection and generally states that to receive a refund
we must be given cancellation notice three or more hours in advance of scheduled sailing time.
I have checked at our offices, and they confirm that no such call
was received from you in accordance with our regulations.
The portion of your ticket covering the driver and one passenger
(value $8.00) is not subject to the above restriction and will be
refunded to you regardless.
To give further consideration to your refund request, I would appreciate knowing any extenuating circumstances that might have
prevented your telephoning the Nanaimo office prior to departing
from the Island.
Your early reply would be appreciated.
Yours very truly,
Manager, B.C.C.S.S.

Dear Mr. Bernatchez:
Thank you very much for considering Canadian Pacific for your
travel plans. At present we are operating one ship for passenger
services which is the T.E.V. "Princess Patricia,"
She is a ship of 6,030 tons which cruises from Vancouver, B.C.
up the coast through the famed Inside Passage to Alaska. Our
sailings begin May 15 and id.ll go up to and including September 28. The duration of each trip is Tir days. While cruising
to Alaska the "Princess Patricia" stops at the ports of Ketchikan,
Wrangell, Skagway, Juneau, Prince Rupert, and Alert Bay. At
most of these ports passengers have an opportunity to take short
excursions to view the points of interest. As well as the ports
of call, the "Patricia" visits scenic areas like Tracy Arm,
which is a narrow, steep—walled fiord that winds its way through
the mountains; also Wrangell. Narrows, which is a 24-mile long
channel which zigzags through the Inside Passage. It Is affectionately known as the Christmas Tree Route bacuase it is lit
alternately with approximately 72 marker buoys.
Let us not forget the spectacular sites of Glacier Bay, where
you have an opportunity (as I like to say) to hug the glacier,
as our ship stops beam to the glacier for approximately a
couple of hours.
.. ./2 Page 2
Mr. J. Paul E. Bernatchez
May 31, 1978
With all the splendid scenery, fine friendly crew, and our 75
years experience cruising the Inside Passage, we are able to
offer an unforgettable travel experience.

Form TB 44 and form 599 are returned herewith, not completed,
in accordance with your telex.  At this time, I am also returning
Mr. Siddell's duplicate cheque, as we have been unable to deliver

A further check with our Nanaimo ticket office has failed to confirm this; however, since there is a possibility of an oversight

difference between the ticket vdue and the passenger portion
($4.00) that has already been refunded.
I hope this will satisfactorily resolve the matter, and I look

VANCOUVER, B.C.
THIS IS TO ACKNOWLEDGE RECEIPT OF YOUR LETTER DATED 19 MAY 1978 AND REPORT
BY MR S L CYMET REGARDING BCCS REVENUE DIVISION FOR RAIL TRAFFIC BETWEEN
VANCOUVER AND NANAIMO.
THERE APPEARS TO BE SOME MISUNDERSTANDING WITH THE DOCUMENTS YOU HAVE
FORWARDED IN THAT IT WAS, I THOUGHT* CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD BY BOTH PARTIES
THAT WE WOULD BE PROVIDED WITH. YOUR ASSESSMENT OF RAIL REVENUES WHICH
WOULD BE FORTHCOMING TO THE B.C. COAST SERVICE RESULTING FROM INCREASES
TO YOUR TARIFF. SINCE 1975 AND WHICH HAVE NOT BEEN REFLECTED IN BCCS
DIVISIONS.  FROM THE BCCS STANDPOINT YOU WILL APPRECIATE THAT THIS IS THE
FIRST POINT OF CONCERN.  THE BASIS OF THIS CONCERN OF COURSE STEMS FROM
THE FACT WE CANNOT BE IN CONTRADICTION TO A I B GUIDELINES WHICH CLEARLY
STATE THAT >THE BASIS OF RAIL ACCOUNTING WOULD NOT BE CHANGED DURING THE
TERM OF A I B RESTRICTIONS AND CONSEQUENTLY PROPORTIONAL DIVISION OF
INCREASES WOULD BE REFLECTED IN OUR DIVISION.  THIS APPROACH WAS DISCUSSED
AND AGREED TO BY MESSRS. GILMORE AND DEMONE IN MONTREAL AND REITERATED IN
FURTHER DISCUSSIONS WITH MESSRS WILKS DODGE AND CHAPMAN BY MR MARGETTS IN
DISCUSSIONS HERE ON THE WEST COAST. ,
WHILE IN PRINCIPLE WE ARE WILLING TO DISCUSS THE BASIS OF FUTURE PAYMENTS IT
IS OUR INTENTION THAT THE RETROACTIVITY OF RAIL REVENUES FOR THE YEAR 1977
SHOULD BE SETTLED PRIOR TO UNDERTAKING THIS OTHER PROBLEM AREA.  THIS
MATTER HAS BEEN UNDER DISCUSSION FOR SEVERAL MONTHS AND YOUR.ACTION TO ENSURE
ITS EARLY CONCLUSION IS REQUESTED.

Phone: (403) 873-4433
Mr. Ward will be operating 10-12 tours consisting of the totd
of 45 groups to Alaska, the Yukon, and the North West Territories
during 1979. He would like to use a cruise ship that sails
through the Inside Passage, preferably operated by Canadian
Pacific.
His main interest seems to be for mid-range to deluxe accommodation. It appears his interest is during the months of June,
Jdy, August, possibly September. I have advised Mr. Ward of
our present situation and possibilities for the future.
When we have definite word as to our cruise operations during
f79i he shodd be advised.
Preliminary checking shodd be done to ascertain the potential
of Wardair as tour ooerators using our service.

Dear Mr. Penont:
Thank you very much for your letter requesting permission to
travel on board our "Princess Patricia" for the purpose of
portrait painting.
We have been approached on a number of occasions for a similar
position on board both our local ferry service to Vancouver Island
and also our cruise ship; however, an appreciation by our shipboard
officers, the type of entertainment that we provide on board ship,
our port activities and the other on board ship arrangements would
indicate that we would be unable to accede to your request for
travel on board the "Princess Patricia."
We appreciate the time taken to write to us and wish you every
good luck in becoming acquainted with some of the other cruise
operators.

WESTERN ARM OF CTC?
Transport Minister Otto Lang says the federal Government will probably set up a western arm of the Canadian Transport Commission in
eight to twelve months. He says it is becoming apparent farm groups

Canadian Pacific NEWS IN BRIEF
GRAIN CAR SHORTAGE GETTING WORSE INSTEAD OF BETTER
VANCOUVER - West Coast grain-loading terminals will not be able to catch
up on wheat deliveries which are supposed to be made before July 31.
Although there is still a heavy back-log of shipments to fill, the flow
of grain cars to the Pacific Coast is actually slackened because traffic
through Thunder Bay has opened up. According to the Canadian Wheat
Board, the fleet of cars for moving export grain is shrinking. According to the CWB the federal Government's 'patch-and-mend' program can not
stave off the retirement of company-owned cars, yet Emmett Hall said his
commission on grain handling found no requirements for additional cars.
(Vancouver Province, May 24)
A CURE WORSE THAN THE DISEASE
VANCOUVER - The federal Government's plans for an independent transport
accident investigation commission would be far worse than the present
unsatisfactory procedures. The recommendations would: heighten the
secrecy surrounding inquiries into transport accidents; in some ways
usurp the authority of the courts; virtually close out the function of
coroners' inquests to investigate accident fatalities, and worst of all,
it would give Transport Canada even more power than it currently has.
(Editorial: Vancouver Province, May 20)
DEMURRAGE MAY MATCH WORSE YEAR — JARVIS
WINNIPEG - The Canadian Wheat Board estimates that this year's demurrage
payments will be as bad as the worst year on record, 1973-74, when $17-
million was paid out, says Chief Commissioner Esmond Jarvis. He said
that port facilities were not taxed last winter. The problem was feeding the ports with enough grain to fill the ships lying at anchor.
(Western Producer, May 18)
DELAYS ON ST. LAWRENCE, TOO
CHICAGO - Canadian Wheat Board officials are watching closely to see if
the current grain shipping delays along the St. Lawrence Seaway become
more serious. The Wheat Board expected last month's opening of the Seaway to take some pressure off the West Coast. Instead, rail car shortages, among other things, have caused delays along the St. Lawrence as
well. (Western Producer, May 18)
QUOTA REVIEW PENDING
WINNIPEG - The first major review of the grain quota system in eight
years will be launched this summer, says an official of the Canadian
Wheat Board. (Western Producer, May 18)
CP RAIL PLANS ONTARIO OUTLAY OF $43-MILLI0N
TORONTO - CP Rail will spend $43-million in Ontario this summer on a
program of building and reconstruction that will include laying rail, replacing ties and building or repairing 48 bridges along more than
3,500 miles of CP Rail lines. The company said 138 of 178 new miles of
rail would be laid in Northern Ontario, including 60 of 118 track miles
between Schreiber and Marathon. Smaller projects in Southern Ontario
will include new rail between Milton and Woodstock, and between Carleton
Place and Smiths Falls. Sixteen bridges will be replaced in Southern
Ontario and 10 more in Northern Ontario. Work to replace a 16-track
bridge over the Mclntyre River at Thunder Bay will enter its second
year. (Toronto Globe and Mail, May 23)
TOP EXECUTIVES IN QUEBEC SQUIRM OVER BIGGER TAX BITE
MONTREAL - Chief executives of companies are warning that higher income
tax rates of executive-level salaries announced in the Quebec budget
last month are having an adverse impact on decisions as to head office
locations. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Pacific
Ltd. I. D. Sinclair is quoted as saying it is absolutely ridiculous to
suggest companies can make up the difference by increasing gross salaries. (Toronto Daily Star, May 23)
NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION WEEK SET FOR MAY 23 - JUNE 3
MONTREAL - National Transportation Week will be held across Canada this
year between May 28 and June 3. Canada's Transportation Man of the Year
is Leonard W. Huyser, president and general manager of Canadian Freight-
ways Ltd. of Calgary and chairman of the board and president of United
Terminals Ltd. of Vancouver. He began his career 44 years ago behind
the wheel of a truck in the Great Depression. (Montreal Gazette, May
24)
IRON ORE LAYS OFF 500
MONTREAL - The Iron Ore Co. of Canada plans to lay off 500 technical and
clerical workers at its plants in Labrador City, Sept lies and Scheffer-
ville, where a strike by the company's 7,000 blue-collar workers has entered its 11th week. (Montreal Gazette, May 24)
BUS TRAVEL GAINS GROUND FOR PEOPLE ON BUSINESS
MONTREAL - Bus travel by business people has shown a marked increase in
recent years, according to Hubert Pitre, president of Voyageur. Noting
that 36 per cent of the line's customers now are on working trips, he
compared this to the situation of up to 10 years ago when most bus
passengers were on the move for pleasure or family reasons. (Montreal
Gazette, May 24)
QUEBEC HAS STRONG YEAR FROM RAIL POINT OF VIEW
MONTREAL - Quebec and the West led the country in railway freight volume
growth in the first quarter of 1978, but the winter surge of business
was temporary and the outlook for Canada as a whole for the rest of the
year is "very disappointing" says CN Rail senior executive officer
Radcliffe Latimer. (Montreal Gazette, May 24) 4
HOTELS' OCCUPANCIES CONTINUE THEIR CLIMB
TORONTO - Room occupancies continue to increase at Canadian hotels, and
first-quarter sales in virtually every major city in Canada have increased over last year, according to Laventhol and Horwath Management Consultants. (Globe and Mail, May 20)
CONRAIL 5-YEAR PLAN CALLS FOR BLACK INK BY 1980, PROFIT OF $253-MILLI0N
IN 1982
PHILADELPHIA -The net loss for Consolidated Rail Corp. this year is expected to grow to $379-mi11 ion from a $366.6-million loss in 1977. However, the Congressionally-sponsored railroad also expects: that its 1979
deficit will narrow to $119-million; that it will break into the black
in 1980 with a $68-million net profit, and that by 1982 its profit will
have risen to $253-million. These and many other projections are contained in a confidential five-year business plan filed Feb. 15 by Conrail with the U.S. Railway Association, the railroad's federal banker.

EUROPEAN TRAIN TRAVEL APPEARS GOOD IN FUTURE
COLOGNE, Germany - There is confidence that vast opportunities lie ahead
for the railroads even in the Jet Age. New high-speed systems are being
developed for the year 2000. In about two years, trial runs will begin
in West Germany by the electromagnetic train. The train is powered by a
linear induction engine that will reach speeds of 240 miles an hour and
cut travel time for the Hamburg-Cologne-Frankfurt-Munich route from
eight to two hours. This train without wheels one day might become a
serious rival to the jetliner. (Chicago Tribune, May 15)
TRAVEL DEFICIT SETS RECORD AT $918-MILLI0N
OTTAWA - Canada posted a record quarterly travel deficit of $918-million

CANADIAN GOVERNMENT CONSIDERING OVERHAUL OF 5,000 RAIL CARS
OTTAWA - Transport Minister Otto Lang disclosed that the federal Government is considering whether to make arrangements to maintain in service
about 5,000 rail cars that are due to be withdrawn from operations if
they aren't overhauled. Speaking in the House of Commons, Mr. Lang
reaffirmed that the government is also considering the possibility of
expanding its fleet of 8,000 rail hopper cars. (Canadian Dow Jones, May
25) RAILWAY
RAIL PASSENGER SERVICE DECRIED; REPLACEMENT WITH BUSES IS URGED
TORONTO - Most passenger rail services in Canada should be discontinued
and replaced with more efficient bus transportation, according to a Car-
leton University professor now attached to the Science Council of Canada.
Current passenger rail services are totally uncompetitive with car and
bus, Professor Julius Lukasiewicz told a transportation seminar in Toronto sponsored by the Canadian Society of Civil Engineering and the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering.
"Indeed, except where traffic volume is sufficiently high, bus transportation is an obvious successor to the obsolete Canadian passenger
rail," he said. Using buses, substituting airplanes for transcontinental rail services and eliminating regional services would cut rail
passenger losses by 65 per cent.
VIA Rail Canada Inc., which was established to take over passenger
services, rationalize present operations and acquire some new trains, is
more likely to cut services, incur new capital expenditures and maintain
large subsidies.
Prof. Lukasiewicz, an outspoken critic of rail operations in Canada and
the author of a book on Canadian railway transportation, has been engaged in a study on transportation for the Science Council during the past
year.
He said 85 per cent of passenger rail services are duplicated -- or
could be -- by bus services. He suggested that the subsidy now paid by
the Government to sustain these rail services should be redirected to
develop high-speed rail operations in high-density areas, such as the
Quebec City-Windsor corridor, where traffic volume is large enough to
make such a service competitive.
Without sufficient capital to improve roadbed and signal systems, VIA
Rail schedules will not be significantly shortened nor its competitive
position bettered.
Prof. Lukasiewcz has long contended that one of the major problems with
rail transportation in Canada today is the growing obsolescence of its
hardware, which needs modernization. He said this could be assisted
through a more selective use of government subsidies, which are now
supporting a deteriorating service.
He said operation of modern high-speed trains in corridor services would
probably entail losses comparable to those sustained maintaining an
obsolete rail passenger system -- $200-million in 1975. The lack of
recognition of this obsolescence has led to the new proposals that are
expected to revitalize service and cut losses, particularly on transcontinental rail travel. But VIA Rail is also facing new competitive threats with the introduction this year of low-cost air charter services and late-night air
fares, which on long-haul flights are as cheap as transcontinental rail
fares.
Prof. Lukasiewicz said long-haul travel can be better provided by the
airplane and bus. Any subsidization of these modes would be more economical and efficient than subsidizing obsolete trains. On local and
short-to-medium range trips, the obsolete train cannot compete with car
and the bus, because it can go no faster than highway vehicles.
A review of passenger rail today points in two directions:
-- SUBSTITUTION of the bus for passenger rail where low traffic vol
ume does not allow a modern rail service to be operated.
-- INTRODUCTION of modern, fast (100-125 mile-an-hour average) trains
where traffic volume is sufficiently large.
A study has shown that 71 per cent of all route miles now served by rail
are also served by bus. Of the remaining 29 per cent, roads are available on 14 per cent of the routes, so that bus service could be offered
on 85 per cent of all rail routes. Although corridor services are
heavily duplicated by bus, the volume of intercity traffic could be
large enough to sustain the operation of fast rail service.
"A straight substitution of bus for rail services appears possible and
desirable in all other cases, with the exception of about 3,000 miles of
rail routes in remote regions and on sections of the transcontinental
routes on which roads are not available." He said a detailed study of
these routes will be required to establish how each should be rationalized.

FINAL REPORT ON BCR EXPECTED BY MID-JUNE
VANCOUVER - The final report and recommendations of a $1.5-million inquiry into the B.C. Railway should be presented to the provincial cabinet by mid-June, Justice Lloyd McKenzie, chairman of a three-man royal
commission inquiry, said May 10. The commission, appointed in February, 1977, will have spent an estimated $1-mi 11 ion by the time its work is completed and B.C. taxpayers
also will pay the estimated $500,000 in expenses which participation in
the inquiry has cost the Crown-owned railway.
The commission's first report led to closure of BCR's Railwest car manufacturing plant at Squamish. A second report urges shutdown of the
400-kilometre Fort Nelson extension and Premier Bennett has promised a
final decision on this early in June.

IWA JOINS DEBATE ON RAIL CLOSURE
VICTORIA - The closure of B.C. Railway's Fort Nelson extension would add
$4-million to the cost of forest products from northeast B.C., Premier
Bennett has been told.
The International Woodworkers of America, in a brief released recently,
reminded Mr. Bennett that the truck rate is $10 per ton higher than rail
for lumber and $11.20 per ton higher for wood chips.
Additionally, the federal government would have to undertake a "massive
program" to widen and pave and maintain 250 miles of the Alaska Highway
from Fort Nelson to Fort St. John to accommodate the greatly-increased
truck traffic. "We know of no case in which the industry relies on
trucks for the movement of such large volumes over such long distances
and rough roadways," the brief says.
The brief recognizes that the forest industry cannot by itself turn the
extension into a profit-making stretch of railway. But it says the 750
industry jobs and the equal or greater number of service jobs would be
jeopardized by the closure. And it worries that "the momentum for
development that is present in the Fort Nelson community . . .will soon
dissipate in the uncertainty."

BOXCAR SHORTAGE ATTACKED
OTTAWA - Farmers in Manitoba and parts of Saskatchewan face a critical
shortage of fertilizer and the railways should concentrate on fertilizer
shipments for the next three weeks, Manitoba MP Jack Murta (PC-Lisgar)
said May 11.
Mr. Murta said that 20 Cominco Ltd. dealers in Manitoba are virtually
out of fertilizer because they cannot get shipments from the main company plant at Trail, B.C. It was promised 30 hopper cars a day by the
railways but has only been getting four.
"The next three weeks are critical," Mr. Murta said. He said it was 8
the most serious development in western agriculture this year.
He told the Commons agriculture committee that both railways are to
blame for the shortages as well as fall-downs in deliveries of potash to
central and eastern Canada.

CP RAIL CHIEF PUSHES $100-MILLI0N TUNNEL PLAN
LAKE LOUISE - Double tracking of the CP Rail mainline here is the economic springboard for a $100-million assault on a possible second Connaught
Tunnel near Rogers Pass, a top rail executive said May 17 at the second
day of a Canadian Transport Commission hearing at Lake Louise.
J. D. Bromley of Vancouver, vice-president of CP Rail's western region,
said an eight-mile-long tunnel below Connaught in Glacier Park is being
considered as a means to lower the 2.2-per-cent track grade there to the
desired one per cent.
He said the economies gained on the new 5.5-mile track at Lake Louise
near the Great Divide will be channelled into the funding needed to
overcome the Rogers Pass obstacle.
To date only Parks Canada has opposed absolutely the double-tracking application. Businessmen here favor it in principle but are opposed to
the route selected and being evaluated at the hearing. They prefer to
relocate the mainline tracks to the slope north of the Trans-Canada
Highway. This would free the valley floor for an alpine community
development, if and when Parks Canada gets around to approving such a
project.
The Lake Louise double tracking is the first major railway construction
in the national parks since the 1880s.
He said the final concept of the Beaver double tracking is not yet complete, however, as CP Rail is considering two plans for the 19-mile double tracking needed to get the one-per-cent grade. If the mountain valleys allow sufficient approach, a second tunnel will be drilled about
500 feet below the existing five-mile Connaught Tunnel as part of the
19-mile double-tracking project.
The alternative is to route the approach so the existing Connaught Tunnel could be expanded and the proper grade installed. Such a feat would
require engineering magnitude bordering on wizardy, Mr. Bromley indicated.
It would involve the construction of two spiral tunnels below the Connaught Tunnel so the trains could get the horizontal distance needed to
maintain the one-per-cent grade.
Connaught Tunnel originally was double-tracked. They were later merged
into the current one-track arrangement. 9
However, the complexity of reverting to a double track with as many as
41 trains a day travelling through the tunnel during construction makes
such a system highly unlikely, Mr. Bromley said.
Under cross-examination by Calgary lawyer John Hopwood, representing
King's Domain Hotel here, he admitted that the motivation for the Lake
Louise work now is economic rather than a need for additional capacity
at this time. The line currently can handle projected Calgary-Vancouver
traffic probably to the middle 1980s without any major changes. Eventually, double tracking would be needed, he said.
Now it takes six 3,000-horsepower locomotives to move 11,000 tons of
freight in one train through Lake Louise. With the lower gradient,
five locomotives would be able to move 13,750 tons in one train. At the
Beaver bottleneck now another four locomotives are added to push the
train through the tunnel and over the hump.
With the double tracking here, five locomotives would have to be added
to the original five-locomotive train for the Beaver push until the
Beaver work is completed.

ROCKY DILEMMA FOR RAILS
LAKE LOUISE - Parks Canada unveiled the Canadian equivalent of moving
coal to Newcastle this week.
CP Rail will have to move rocks to the Rockies if it wants to double
track its mainline across 5.5 miles of this mile-high subdivision near
the Great Divide.
Parks Canada, in its brief to the Canadian Transport Commission opposing
the railway application, warned it would not allow the railway to quarry
any rock needed for ballast to build the new line.
Dr. Bruce Leeson, head of the natural history research division for
Parks Canada western region, said the department would also resist any
attempt to enlarge the necessary rock cuts for the right-of-way to produce additional rock needed for the embankments and fill.
He said he believed the nearest rock quarry from which CP Rail could
acquire ballast material would be in the Morley area.
However N. D. Mullins of Vancouver, CP Rail regional counsel, reminded
the witness the railway has freehold land within the park where it could
burrow for rock ballast. Mr. Leeson, however, contended any such quarrying would have to be examined in the light of the national parks policy
and if it contravened it, the department would have to close down the
operation.

SIX RAIL BRANCH LINES TO CLOSE
WINNIPEG - Abandonment of 284 miles of railway branch lines in west-central Manitoba, approved May 17 by the Canadian Transport Commission,
will force the closure of at least 19 rural grain elevators, a spokesman
for Manitoba Pool Elevators said May 17.
And the decision, which came as "no surprise" to the elevator firm, will
"without question mean increased hardships for farmers in the areas affected," the spokesman said. A farmer along one of the affected lines
told The Tribune some grain producers face increased transportation
costs of up to $700 yearly to haul grain to alternate elevators which,
he claimed, already are congested.
The commission approved abandonment of the 29.5-mile CP Rail Varcoe
subdivision and the 32.8 miles between Rossburn and Neepawa junctions on
the CN Neepawa subdivision, effective July 31.
CN will also abandon 74.4 miles of track between Hallboro and Beulah on
the Rapid City subdivision; the 11.2-mile Muir-Helston and the 8.9-mile
Carberry junction Neepawa sections of the Neepawa subdivisions; and the
10.2 miles between the Petrel and Carberry junctions on the Carberry
subdivision, effective Dec. 31.
In addition, CP Rail will close 9.4 miles between Crandall and Miniota
on the Miniota subdivision. 11
The 41.3 miles between Lenore and Forrest on the CP Rail Lenore subdivision and the 65.9 miles between Brandon and Crandall on the CP Miniota subdivision will be abandoned Dec. 31, 1979.
Since last summer, the commission has authorized abandonment of 950
miles of railway branch lines in western Canada. A report by former
Supreme Court of Canada judge Emmett Hall recommended the abandonment of
2,165 miles of branch lines in the West.

RAIL TAX BREAK REJECTED

and Manitoba, would erode a major provincial tax base and open the door
to demands for similar concessions to the construction industry and many
others.
Using what Mr. Robbins branded a politically-motivated argument, Mr.
Lang said exemption would increase the amount of money available to the
railways for investment in the rehabilitation program and speed it up.

VIA RAIL APPLIES FOR NEW SET OF FARES
MONTREAL - Train fares will rise for many passengers on June 15 but drop
for others, VIA Rail Canada announced May 19.
VIA Rail said it has filed a new set of fares with the Canadian Transport Commission to replace CN's red-white-and-blue system on June 15 and
CP Rail's single-tier system when negotiations with that company are
completed.
The new system, which VIA calls the "fare-for-all" plan, will be higher
than most CN fares but lower than CP Rail fares. For instance, the new
single fare on CN-operated trains between Montreal and Toronto will be
$23, valid on all trains throughout the year. This compares to the red
bargain fare of $18.50 valid on most trains outside the summer and holiday periods, $22.25 for the white intermediate fare and $26 for the blue
premium fare for trains leaving at peak hours during heavy travel periods,
But the fare between Calgary and Vancouver on CP Rail-operated trains
will drop to $32 from $43.

HALL COMMISSION HEAD DISAPPOINTED BY LACK OF ACTION
REGINA - One year after the release of his report on the Prairie grain
handling and transportation system, former Chief Justice Emmett Hall is
a disappointed man.
The federal government has virtually ignored the recommendations in the
report, Mr. Hall said in an interview. "Lip service has been given to
the report rather than being implemented," Mr. Hall said.
Key recommendations included retention of the Crow's Nest Pass freight
rate for grain, and creation by 1978 of a Prairie rail authority to
oversee rail line abandonment of 2,165 miles of branch lines in stages
by 1981.
Mr. Hall was most upset with an announcement in March by Transport Minister Otto Lang that the federal government will pay CN and CP Rail
$600-million to upgrade lines during the next 10 years. "Making a gift
of $600-million to railroads is totally unjustified," he said. He was
equally dissatisfied with $100-million paid out last year.
He said the Hall report, in recommending retention of the Crow's Nest
rate, proposed that the railways receive compensatory rates by having
the federal government pay directly to the railroads the difference
between the rate and the actual cost of hauling grain. For any other
capital requirements, the railways should be going to money markets to
borrow like any other corporation and branch-line subsidies should be
discontinued, he said. Mr. Hall was critical of a recent proposal that
the federal government purchase 4,000 more hopper cars. He said his
commission found there was no need for more cars and it would just be
more money spent in eastern Canada.
He noted that both CN and CP Rail earned "substantial" profits last
year.
Although he said he is disappointed with lack of action on the report
in its first year, Mr. Hall said his feelings are little compared with
what farmers, who have had big expectations of the report, must be
feeling.

Mr. Lang said it is becoming apparent that farm groups don't want a
Prairie rail authority to replace the commission. The authority was
proposed in the Hall report to decide the future of 2,344 miles of track
on which the transport commission felt it had inadequate information to
decide on abandonment.
Mr. Lang said the idea of a western branch of the commission has just 13
been put forward and officials have not yet considered whether the
branch would have jurisdiction over more than railways.

AVIATION
AIRLINE BILLING STREAMLINED
MONTREAL - After two years of study, the airline industry will introduce
this fall what travel agencies view as a long-overdue scheme to rationalize processing of the $1.3-billion worth of plane tickets Canadians
buy from them every year.
Organized by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the
scheme will whisk airline billing from the age of the quill pen to that
of the computer and put Canadian air billings on the same footing as 60
per cent of the worldwide airline-travel agency transactions.
Of more tangible interest, it will double the revenues of a small Winnipeg data-processing firm and herald the entrance of Canadian Imperial
Bank of Commerce as a dominant bank in the Canadian air travel business.
Called the Bank Settlement Plan, its introduction means that the 40
individual IATA members operating in Canada will no longer issue their
own tickets to the country's 1,750 travel agencies. Instead, the agencies will receive stocks of standardized IATA airline tickets from a
printer licenced by IATA.
No longer will the travel agencies settle their accounts with each airline individually. Instead, the agents will pay the total value of
their billings, minus commission, to a central clearing bank which will
distribute that amount to the appropriate airlines.
For the airlines, the Bank Settlement Plan will minimize administrative
costs and both consolidate and secure document flow, according to IATA.
The real boon, however, is for the travel agents. Under the present
system, they must remit ticket revenues twice a month to each of the
airlines they represent, itemizing each ticket. As well, they must
submit travel statistics to the different airlines, with some airlines
requiring the return of 10 different marketing forms.
The average Canadian travel agency represents 12 airlines, with some of
the larger ones representing as many as 20, according to John Clowes,
who will administer IATA's billing plan.

CANADIAN AIRLINES LAG AS U.S. CUTS TOP FARES
MONTREAL - While Canadian airlines are cutting back on the number of
first-class seats in their jets, U.S. airlines are reducing prices for
their first-class tickets in hopes of encouraging more passengers to fly
the comfortable way. 15
This bargain-for-the-rich trend -- it may also attract a lot of businessmen -- has stirred up considerable interest in the U.S., where the
name of the airline game these days is Horatio Alger-style competition.
Air Canada and CP Air fares are 60 per cent above the regular economy
fare. Canadian airline spokesman here said they did not know of any
plans to reduce them. In fact, the Air Canada trend is to eliminate all
first-class seats in smaller jets, and reduce the number of those in
larger aircraft.

CP AIR ENTERS ALBERTA-CALIFORNIA COMPETITION
EDMONTON - CP Air has entered the competition to lure Albertans to California through charter-class fares with the standard 45-day advance

travellers westward to connect with the airline's two daily non-stop
flights to California. Weekday discounts of 40 per cent and 30 per cent
on weekends can be obtained through the new plan.
But Air Canada is counting on the attractiveness of its Edmonton-Los Angeles and Edmonton-San Francisco flights. Normal fares of $258 return
to Los Angeles are matched by advanced booking fares of $155 return.
Air Canada began Edmonton-Los Angeles and Edmonton-San Francisco direct
flights at the first of this month. An airline spokesman said passenger

Mr. Duguid says in the letter there is no conflict between BCDC and federal transport minister Otto Lang, who on March 7 announced that $16.3-
million would be spent on servicing the Ridley Island site for a grain

U.S. WARNING ON COST COULD THREATEN PLANS FOR PIPELINE PROJECT
OTTAWA - While the federal Government has formally approved the Alaska

The latest example is a warning by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that the U.S. portions of the pipeline may not be certified if
final cost estimates "materially and unreasonably exceed" the estimates
filed a year ago.
The warning is part of a U.S. Government campaign to keep costs of the

NEW YORK - By some estimates, as much as $25-billion to $50-bi11 ion of

often at the expense of the banks that long have dominated the field.
In the 1960s, a corporation with pension assets usually hired two managers, both generally banks. Today, such a fund might have five or six

Dear Sirs:
I have received your claim for alleged, damages to mobile home
#6519 in the amount of $102.15.
Damage consisting of a broken right front window was noted to
this unit at approximately 0730 hours, May 1st, 1978 by our
Senior Traffic Supervisor while unit was parked in Lot A5 south
of our terminal. Our C.P. Investigation Department was notified
and regular checks of the unit were carried out to prevent antf
vandalism. *
Investigation of your claim has resulted in several interesting
facts coming to light. It appears this mobile home was dropped
on our lot either on April 29th, 1978 or April 30, 1973. At that
time, no one notified this company of their shipping intentions.
In fact, it was not until May 3rd, 1973 just prior to it being
loaded aboard the "Princess of Vancouver" by Ken-Mac were we
given any shipping instructions or any Bill of Lading.
As you are no doubt aware, until completion of the Bill of Lading, we have not accepted delivery of the unit for shipping.
When the unit is placed upon our lot, a Bill of Lading should be
completed so that we may have an opportunity to inspect for obvious damage.
Since this procedure was .not followed, I regret that your claim
for damages must be denied.
Yours very truly,
Manager, B.C.C.S.S.

Attached is correspondence which has been forwarded to me regarding Canadian Pacific's agreement with the National Harbours
Board in connection with the construction of general cargo
berths, pursuant to Master Agreement of 31 December 1967.
You will note from the most recent letter to Mr. Bromley from Mr.
Spoke, that the Northland properties have been brought into the
foray over the National Harbours Board's obligation imposed by
the Master Agreement.
While I have not reviewed all the material to date, I will continue doing so, but felt that you should be informed of the
position in the interim.  Your comments on the position would be
appreciated at the Management meeting of 24 May.

You are requested to undertake the compilation of a Procedures
Manual covering action that should be taken should any BCCS
vessels be in an accident of any kind.
To date, while there are certain procedures which must be
followed in accord with MOT and other regulatory bodies, we
ourselves do not have an outline of general procedures which
various Officers of the Service should follow.  You will, of
course, have to contact the Law Department, Public Relations
and other corporate entities, to ensure that any recommendations
are in accord with Company policy.
Damage to shore facilities should also be included in your
appraisal.
Your early attention to this would be appreciated.  Please confer
with me at any time in this regard, as it is of prime importance.

Dear Mr. Olsten:
I received your application for consideration of refund on BCS
5x10 #456439 (vaule $18.00).
As you are no doubt aware, it is our policy not to refund unless
cancellation is made three hours prior to scheduled sailings as
per tariff regulations; however, in this instance, since you appear to have made a concerted effort to fulfill your commitment
to travel on the vessel, I am authorizing the refund to be made,
and it should reach you within two weeks or so.
This action is not to be considered a precedent and is authorized
from a public relations point of view only.
I look forward to your continued patronage.
Yours truly,
Manager, B.C.C.S.S.

It should be noted that the attached summary of expenses are
lower than plan. The reason for this is a great portion of
the Alaska Visitors Association program for the eastern U.S.
had been cancelled. Also, great care was exercised in the f--
actual expenditure of funds, i.e. sharing of car rentals,

Re: Attached PT59, Miss K. Moore & Eureka Travel
and PT59, Miss D. Coltrin & Burke's World Wide Travel
Although accounting instructions state rather explicitly, that a
refund should not be made In cash for any ticket purchased on a
credit card, in each of these two cases it has seemingly appeared
unavoidable.
In both instances, the travel agency made bookings for their
clients for an Alaska cruise. When final payment was due, the
travel agency was requested to accept a credit card on our behalf and consequently were not able to deduct their commissions
due. The commission due each agent was deducted from gross
fare on cruise ticket necessitating the form BCS17 for commission
amount to be completed and put in for refund.
I hope this action meets with your approval as it appeared to
be the only satisfactory solution to our dilemma.

Effective immediately instructions have been issued to our

sailing of the "Princess of Vancouver" ex Vancouver Monday
through Friday.
We find that handling drive-ons on this particular sailing
is interfering with regularly scheduled traffic and, therefore,

GRAIN DELIVERY LATE, BOXCAR LACK BLAMED
VANCOUVER - Boxcars, not cargo ships, are delaying the delivery of wheat
to China, the wheat purchasing agent for the Chinese Government says.
J. S. Maclnnes, president of Vancouver-based North Pacific Shipping Co.,
said there are 13 Chinese ships at anchor in Vancouver harbor, and some
of them have been waiting up to five weeks for loading. Only two Chinese
ships are at loading berths. At the same time, he added, berths in both
Vancouver and Prince Rupert, B.C., have been one-third empty since May 1
because of a shortage of grain to be loaded. (CP - Globe and Mail, May

B.C. FOREST ROYALTIES WILL GO UP
VANCOUVER - B.C. forestry companies will face sharply increased royalty
and rental rates under the new forest legislation introduced in the Legislature last week. At the same time, Forest Minister Waterland said
companies will benefit from changes in the logging tax and the Crown
will actually receive approximately $13-million less revenue a year
under the new legislation. (Vancouver Province, May 16) LRC WILL CUT TRAVEL TIME ON OTTAWA-QUEBEC CITY RUN
OTTAWA - The LRC train, Canada's Light, Rapid and Comfortable entry in
the field of fast ground transport, will start rolling on the Ottawa-
Quebec City railway corridor in about 18 months. Frank Roberts, president of VIA Rail, said Jan. 1, 1980, is the target date for introduction
of the new equipment. Ten sets of five cars each will be available initially, Mr. Roberts said May 15 following a speech to the annual meeting of the Travel Industry Association of Canada. (Ottawa Journal, May

P.C.'S CLAIM WHEAT SALES WILL BE LOST
OTTAWA - Prairie wheat farmers can thank the federal Government for a
loss of $800-million this year in potential export sales, say the Conservatives. Tory Transport critic Don Mazankowski charged in the Commons on May 15 that a transportation "bottleneck" caused by Ottawa's
slowness in modernizing the western rail network will result in some
$800-million in lost exports. Canada's wheat exports are expected to
reach a record 850 million bushels this year. (Ottawa Journal, May 16)
FORESTRY BILL URGES ALLIANCE
VICTORIA - Sweeping changes to B.C.'s forest laws designed to encourage

CP RAIL EARTH RAMP PLANNING HIT
LAKE LOUISE, Alta. - Businessmen in this mountain resort community want

CP RAIL'S DOUBLE-TRACKING HEARING STARTS RUNNING INTO SNAGS
LAKE LOUISE, Alta. - Confusion among residents of the Bow Valley and
head-on collision between provisions of the Railway Act and officials of
Parks Canada highlighted the first day of a public hearing into the
double-tracking of the CP Rail mainline here. Parks Canada, holding
rigidly to its mandate to preserve national parks for future generations,
opposed the application. Confusion bordered on consternation among
opponents of CP Rail's decision to build 5.5 miles of new track proceeding just west of Lake Louise village. The residents expressed
dismay because they believed they were considering the merits of two
proposed routes through the Laggan subdivision. R. D. Jones, Q.C.,
chairman of the CTC, however said the hearing is only to consider the
"C" route that the railway has applied for. Opponents believed that of
the six lettered routes considered by CP Rail, the "F" route, which
bypasses the town north of the TransCanada Highway, was also being
included for evaluation, because it was referred to in the general
information and maps distributed by CP Rail in advance of the hearing.
Lake Louise businessmen let it be known they prefer "Route F" because it
would remove the track from the valley floor. Major opposition to
"Route C" is based on the construction of a ramp that would be required
to reduce the grade from the existing 1.8 per cent to one per cent.
That ramp would start just west of the village centre. (Calgary Herald,

FREIGHT-CAR DEMAND FINALLY PICKS UP SPEED
NEW YORK - The buildup in demand for railroad freight cars traditionally
lags far behind any general economic recovery.
Now, months behind the pickup in the nation's economic well-being, the
freight-car business has finally come alive. Manufacturers are chugging
toward what many predict will be a healthy 75,000-car year — 17-percent better than last year and double the orders logged in 1975 and
1976.
To many in the industry, that rebound is overdue. "Demand for cars is
strong, but that doesn't surprise me," says Henry A. Correa, president
of ACF Industries Inc., a leading carbuilder. "It has been pent-up for
quite some time."
It was a year ago when most railroads -- as well as the leasing companies and utilities, which are becoming increasingly important customers
in the freight-car market -- finally overcame their fear that the recovery would be short-lived. Within a few months, several major car buyers
rushed into the market at once.
The order surge is coming from healthy roads as well as from those that
are rebuilding, such as the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific RR. Burlington Northern Inc. has contracted for 760 new open-top cars and 975 new
covered hoppers, and orders for new cars by the railroad unit of Santa
Fe Industries Inc. this year will total 1,420, up 40 per cent from last
year. Even beleaguered Conrail is in the market in a big way, with a
massive order for 4,000 new open hoppers from three manufacturers. The
government-backed company is counting on a major boost in coal production to keep those cars occupied and plans to spend a total of $496-mill-
ion on all types of new freight stock by 1982.
So far, though, the upswing in freight-car orders has been most evident
in boxcars and flatcars, which carry a variety of goods; first-quarter
commitments for those types are triple those received in the first three
months of 1977. Covered hoppers have been in strong demand because of
low grain prices that have set off a wave of grain exporting. Plant
expansion in the chemical industry also has stimulated demand for tank
cars. And manufacturers are benefiting additionally because auto makers
are now requiring carriers to switch to enclosed-rack cars, which are
intended to stem the theft and vandalism of transported cars that last
year in the U.S. cost an estimated $212-million in losses.

VIA RAILWAY TAKE-OVER FACES UNION PACT DELAY
MONTREAL - VIA president Frank Roberts says he is not giving up on the June 1 deadline for the start of VIA trans-continental railway passenger
services, despite delays in reaching a "special agreement" with railway
unions.
The federal passenger railway operating agency is scheduled to take over
the trans-continental services of CN and CP Rail on that date.
The two railways will continue to haul the trains and provide conductors
and locomotive engineers, but most of the on-train service staff, station
and ticket counter workers will be hired directly by VIA.
It is a complex arrangement, one that calls for a special agreement between the four unions that will sign contracts with VIA and a number of
other railway unions that will be directly affected by some of the drastic changes. VIA also has to sign a contract with the two railways in
order to arrange for them to haul the VIA trains. Mr. Roberts says he
is optimistic this part of the deal can be signed on time. .
The special agreement with the unions appears to be the stumbling block
at the moment, according to other railway sources. It must be signed
before VIA can actually operate its first trains out of Toronto and Montreal to Vancouver.
Judge Alan B. Gold of Montreal is acting as an arbitrator in the current
union-VIA talks in an effort to bring the negotiations to a successful
conclusion before the deadline.
There will be some work changes for certain railway employes as VIA will
eventually wind up with some 3,000 or 4,000 employees, most of them now
with the railway. Another major concern is the current set of CP Rail
and CN railway schedules, which are only effective until May 31. If all
goes as planned, VIA will soon be able to put a new timetable into effect, one that will reflect the new routings.
The CP Rail trans-continental train will cease operating out of Windsor
Station on May 31, and the VIA train will run out of Central Station on
the CN tracks to Dorval, then on CP Rail tracks to North Bay. The VIA
train will then run on CN tracks to Winnipeg and Vancouver.
When the second phase of the VIA trans-continental service begins Sept.
15, the Montreal and Toronto VIA trains will join up at Sudbury, take
the CP Rail tracks to Winnipeg, then split up into two trains again for
the long run to Vancouver.

COAL FUTURE SAID IN HAND OF RAILROADS
REGINA - Whether the 1980s bring another surge in Canadian coal export
growth depends, to a large degree, on the country's two major railroads
and national rail transportation policy. L. G. Price, president of Rescon Developments Ltd., told Coal Association of Canada members meeting May 10 in Regina that the net price of
coal is influenced by nothing quite so much as it is influenced by inland transportation costs.
"Our inland transportation costs have risen more sharply then those of
our competitors and our ability to compete in world markets has been
diminished," Mr. Price said.
Transportation costs for metallurgical coal account for between one-
third and one-quarter of delivered cost, while transportation costs for
steam coal -- for which substantial markets could develop over the next
few years -- could amount to one-half of the delivered price.
Mr. Price said the growth and expansion of Canada's coal industry in the
early 1970s came almost solely because of co-operative action between
shippers, carriers and the coal terminals, stemming from a conscious
decision made in the late 1970s to capture a large part of the Pacific
off-shore market. "Today we are faced with a similar challenge," Mr.
Price said.
While harbor coal-handling facilities in Canada remain the best in the
world with minimal rate increases over the years and expansion plans
already in the works, Mr. Price said Canada's rail system has more than
offset these gains.
Citing Australia and the U.S. as Canada's only serious competitors in
the quest for world coal markets, Mr. Price said over the last decade
Canadian rail rates for coal transport increased by 150 to 270 per cent,
Australian rail rates only rose 50 to 60 per cent and American rail
rates rose 103 per cent.
American rates for domestic long-haul unit train services are 50 to 75
per cent of the Canadian rates on a ton-mile basis, Mr. Price said.
Canada's competitive position is further eroded by the inland distance
of between 600 and 700 miles Canadian coal must be moved. American coal
must be shipped slightly over half that distance and Australian coal for
export located only 100 to 230 miles from a tidewater shipping point.
Mr. Price said coal companies are "captive shippers" of either of the
two Canadian railroads, being subject to shipping costs which fail to
recognize the superior economics of unit-train shipments and force the
coal industry to subsidize other commodity shipping.
He called for an end to the heavy subsidization of wheat shipments,
saying the coal industry and other non-regulated commodity shippers are
forced to subsidize railroad losses of over $90-million on wheat alone.
"If we are to have financially-sound railroads and fairly-treated other
shippers, it is essential that grain shippers pay the full service
rate," Mr. Price said.
He also called for the federal government to make coal company expenditures on railroad capital works for coal development and movement, subject to the same taxation writeoffs currently available on manufacturing
equipment.

COAL INDUSTRY LOOKS TO GOVERNMENTS FOR HELP
REGINA - Governments at both federal and provincial levels hold the key
to the future growth and competitive position of the Canadian coal industry, a leading coal consultant said here May 8.
In the opening address to a two-day symposium on coal economics and
taxation, Robert Stewart, director of Rio Tinto North American Services
Ltd. of Toronto, said government attitudes towards taxation, royalties
and environmental regulations will determine whether the coal industry
can maintain a competitive position in domestic and international markets in the next two decades.
"It is important that we have sensible government policies that will
enable us to meet the challenge that the coal industry is going to face
over the next 20 years," he said. "If we hope to meet the competition,
we have to maintain low production costs and low transportation costs to
market."

SOUTH KOREA IS LOOKING AT CANADIAN COAL
EDMONTON - Canada is a potential source of coal for South Korea, Chang

"Securing a stable, long-term supply of coal is essential to the Korean
economy," Mr. Chang said in an interview.
Although he was not here to buy coal on his goodwill visit, Mr. Chang
said he understood some Korean firms are talking with Canadian companies
about buying coal for steel-making. One firm has bought coal from
Luscar Ltd. which mines coal in Alberta.

U.S. WANTS SEAT BELTS FASTENED ON FLIGHTS
WASHINGTON - Airline passengers in the United States would be required
to keep their seat belts fastened throughout a flight under a rule proposed May 11 by the Federal Aviation Administration.
The FAA said the regulation would help prevent injuries caused by unexpected air turbulence or sudden aircraft manoeuvres. The only exceptions would be when a passenger goes to the restroom or when a crew member authorizes a passenger to unbuckle the belt to move about the cabin
for a specific reason. 10
The FAA also proposed a rule that would require passengers who expect to
need oxygen for medical reasons during a flight to keep the physician's

COMMISSION RECOMMENDS ENDING TAX ON CAPITAL GAIN AND REINVESTED PROFIT
OTTAWA - Drop the capital gain tax and let corporate mergers proceed
without bureaucratic over-kill, the Royal Commission on Corporate Concentration recommends.
The federal Government should also refrain from taxing corporate profits
if they are re-invested into business, the commission says in a pro-

Regarding the "natural phenomenon" of corporate mergers, the commission
urges that the Government bureaucracy should not screen mergers as has

in very big merger cases should the federal Cabinet and Parliament be
involved in deciding whether they should be stopped because of adverse
social or economic consequences.

SHIPPING
ALBERTA'S WHEAT PLAN WOULD HURT QUEBEC
EDMONTON - Alberta is again preparing to wield its multi-billion dollar
oil clout to help the West, at the expense of central Canada, Southam
News Services learned last weekend.
Premier Peter Lougheed's goal this time is not another simple acquisition -- like his controversial purchase of Pacific Western Airlines --
but the breaking the decade-old inaction on a major grains terminal at
Prince Rupert, B.C.
If Alberta succeeds in persuading grain-handlers and wheat pools to
reach agreement on Prince Rupert development this summer, the move will
eventually cost Quebec and Ontario millions of dollars annually in lost
Seaway tolls. Upwards of 70 million bushels of grain a year could be
diverted from the Lakehead route.
Premier Lougheed will dramatize Alberta's concern May 19 by flying to
the B.C. port where he will meet with two other provincial cabinet ministers travelling there via private rail car hooked to a CN freight
train. On the same day, the Alberta Wheat Pool is holding a meeting in
Calgary of grain-handling companies interested in forming a consortium
to finance the $100-million Prince Rupert terminal.
So far, says Wheat Pool general manager Wally Madill, all but two of the
firms invited have accepted. The most conspicious absence is Cargill
Grain Company of Winnipeg, which has been promoting Prince Rupert over
the opposition of two wheat pools with major investments to protect in
Vancouver terminals.
Dr. Hugh Horner, Alberta's Transport minister, said in a recent interview that Alberta was willing to invest in ownership of the terminal
even if the Alberta Wheat Pool was not one of the other participants. 12
This position could be sold politically in Alberta by some device such
as offering preferential shares to farmers. "The ideal would be to have
a consortium of grain companies -- competing like hell elsewhere --but
operating Prince Rupert together. Rupert is the key to initiating some
rationalization elsewhere in the transportation system."

GRAIN PORT WOULD BOOST FARM INCOMES
EDMONTON - Prairie farmers' incomes would be boosted by at least $25-
million in total each year if a Prince Rupert, B.C., grain terminal was
constructed.
"The minimum premium that we see coming back to the farmer by increased
diversion through west coast access . . . would be 25 cents a bushel.
On a modest objective of 100 million bushels, that's $25-million additional dollars in income to Western Canadian farmers," Transportation
Minister Hugh Horner said May 4.
He said other advantages of a Prince Rupert terminal — which the province is keen to see go ahead -- include increased use of hopper cars
released by quicker turnaround time, the fact the port is 500 miles
closer to the Far East than Vancouver, and is less congested.

However, for its one-third equity investment, PetroCanada is expected to

liquefied natural gas from the Arctic Islands to East Coast markets.

U.S. SHIPLINES' BUILDERS NEED GOVERNMENT AID
WASHINGTON - The U.S. maritime industry is ailing and seeking new federal help to avoid what it sees as an impending disaster threatening the
"economic equivalent of a Pearl Harbor."
With business losses caused by rising costs and increasing competition,
industry leaders foresee a loss of more than 45,000 jobs in the next 10
years. 13
Thirty years ago, according to James M. Barker, chairman of the industry-
sponsored National Maritime Council Board, 4,000 U.S. merchant ships
carried nearly 60 per cent of the nation's foreign trade. Today 557
American ships carry barely five per cent.
The industry sees its major problem as competition from foreign government-owned and sponsored carriers. They have been steadily strengthening their position on traditional American flag trade routes, especially
in commerce with Third World countries.
Industry spokesmen express particular concern with the "Russian threat"
-- a Soviet fleet with four times as many ocean-going vessels as its
U.S. counterpart, ranking eighth in the world. The U.S. fleet is tenth.
Speaking of the Soviet fleet, a House committee spokesman said "it
doesn't have to make a profit," and regularly cuts freight rates by as
much as 40 per cent.
Mr. Barker predicted the United States "will be strategically dependent
on the Russians for general cargo shipping services in five to ten
years."
Heavy competition also comes from flag-of-convenience ships, which some
industry members refer to as "flags-of-necessity." These are ships
owned by American interests, registered in foreign countries such as
Liberia and Panama and sailing under their flags.
By registering ships abroad, American owners are not subject to U.S.
taxes, pay-scales or licensing, construction, maintenance and safety
standards. Under these conditions, industry spokesmen claim, they can
compete better with government-owned carriers.

SHIPYARDS LACK WORK BUT CN MARINE CHARTERS VESSELS
MONTREAL - The battle over who should build the ships which ply Canadian
waters has broken out again.
At the same time as Canadian shipyards are laying off more than 1,000
workers, one branch of government has decided against building its ships
here in favor of chartering European vessels on a long-time basis.
CN Marine Ltd., a division of Canadian National Railways, decided that
it would charter two Swedish vessels on five-year leases for service between Nova Scotia and Newfoundland earlier this year.
CN Marine justifies its move by saying that the need for the ships arose
suddenly and there simply was not time to order the ships from Canadian
yards. The only alternative was to charter them abroad. 14
Had they waited to design and build the ships, says division president
John Gratwick, "I can virtually guarantee we would not have met the real
transportation needs of the Atlantic region."
All of this begs the question of why the company could not have foreseen
the sudden rise in demand. Mr. Gratwick's critics in private industry
claim that there was no advance planning.

IS CANADA TAKING TOO MUCH FROM ITS FORESTS?
VANCOUVER - Some industry officials and professional foresters say
Canada is facing potentially serious timber supply problems.
The officials say British Columbia and the rest of Canada are not going
to run out of trees, but because of poor management of the resource the
available trees may not prove economic to cut.
Dr. Hamish Kimmins, associate professor of forestry at the University of
B.C., says everyone has been guilty of taking too much from the forest
and not putting enough back. Mr. Kimmins says that, although forestry
is B.C.'s most vital industry, it is not receiving the financial help
other industries get.
He says that B.C. exported $3.1-billion of forestry products in 1976 out
of total exports worth $5.4-billion. In 1976-77, agricultural exports
were $11-million, says Mr. Kimmins, yet the budget for agriculture was
$3.2-million more than for forestry.
Mr. Kimmins estimates about 13 cents an acre is spent
while Weyerhaeuser in the United States spends $14 an

* * * "MAKING CONNECTIONS -
HIGHWAY TRANSPORT'S VIEW"
By
R.C. Barnstead,
President, CP Transport
At
The Atlantic Canada Conference
Halifax
May 19,1978
I will be making my remarks this morning on two related
aspects of highway transport, one general and one
specific. The general aspect deals with the relationship
of highway transport to the broad basis of the published
aim of the Atlantic Provinces Economic Council to bring
the economy of the Atlantic Provinces up to national
standards by 1990. The specific aspect deals with highway transport as it relates to the direct theme of this
panel: "Making Connections".
Transportation is an essential ingredient in the economic
development of any area in that it brings together raw
materials for the production of marketable commodities
and distributes products of industry to the marketplace.
Transportation, by itself, does not create either a product
or a market. The catch-phrase "Roads to Resources" can
be misleading if there is not an economic need for the
resources desiring to be reached. There are examples in
more than one mode here in Canada where transport
facilities have been built in advance of needs — the
airport at Mirabel and the northern extension of the
British Columbia Railway are two well-known examples of
facilities that have not yet fulfilled the promises of
economic success that were claimed for them.
The construction of highways is generally free from this
sort of problem. Highways have an alleviating factor in
their favour — they are not built to serve solely one mode
of transportation. Highways are facilities that are shared
between commercial and private users. Good highways
are also extremely important to attract tourists and tourism in its own right is a significant industry in Atlantic
Canada.
The role of trucking lies mainly in serving two general
markets. One of these is in the distribution of all sorts of
goods in primarily small volumes from distribution
centres to the thousands of stores in cities, towns, and
villages. In the reverse direction the trucks bring back
full-load shipments for subsequent processing by industry. The second market in which trucking plays a substantial role is in the transportation of somewhat larger
shipments of a commodity to industries or to warehouses
from which further distribution is subsequently made. In
general terms these are shipments in about up to 50,000
pound lots. Examples of this role are tank trailers of fuel,
or chemicals to manufacturing plants, or trailer loads of
basic foods such as sugar and flour to food processors.
Shipments of many commodities in truckload quantities
are a necessity because there are many manufacturing
plants or distribution centres which are not large enough
to take or ship their traffic in multiple rail car lots, or are
simply not located on railway sidings. In addition, in many
instances the use of trucks provides a convenient and
flexible service to assist the shippers in their marketing
requirements.
Trucking, then, has a reasonably well-defined role in the
movement of goods whether in trailerload quantities or in
less-than-trailerload quantities. It serves the many shippers requiring goods in these quantities because of
convenient flexible service and because the overall
volume of their business does not require the handling of
larger quantites which might otherwise come by shipload
or by trainloads.
There is also another parameter that defines the limits of
the trucking market and that is distance. For the great
majority of industrial products trucking is not economic
for very long distances. However there are many non-
industrial products such as fresh fruits and vegetables,
meat, and other perishable traffic where the necessity of
speed to the marketplace offsets the additional cost for
longer distances.
Now I would like to say a few words about the cost of
trucking in full-load lots, within the context of the overall
economic development of an area. The economic role of
trucking in full-load lots lies in the transportation of
relatively small volumes up to say, 50,000 pounds for
single shipments, and over relatively short distances in
the general area of up to 750 miles with some exceptions.
What then can be done to lower the cost of truck
transportation in order to enlarge the role that trucking
can play in the development of an area?
It must be realized that transportation provides a service only. Of itself it can do little to create a product or a
market, it can only serve a need or a market that otherwise exists. The cost of trucking is influenced, of course,
by all the normal costs of any business — that is, the
costs of labour, fuel, equipment, taxes, and so on.
However, the cost structure is also influenced by the size
of shipment and the distance the goods are to move. It is
axiomatic that the larger the load in terms of cube or
weight that can be carried, the lower will be the unit cost
of handling. This item can be controlled in several ways. It
can be controlled by the efficiency of the individual
trucker in ensuring that each trailer dispatched is as full
as it can be. However, there is one expense item that is
not as easily controlled and that is the cost of the return
load as round-trip costs must always be taken into
consideration. The driver and his equipment must return
to his home terminal. If the truck is full in both its outward
and inward journeys from its terminal, unit costs associated with the loads will be reduced. If the trucker has to
roam far afield to find a return load, this creates empty
miles and the unit costs will be higher. If, in the most
extreme case the truck must return completely empty, it
is easy to see that the unit cost of handling the outward
load is essentially double. While truckers are constantly
striving to balance their traffic flows, transportation planners can also help by attempting to locate industry in
such a way that two-way traffic by truck is available.
Another factor affecting the cost of trucking is governed
by provincial regulations respecting the vehicle size and
weight that can legally be operated on highways. Where
adjacent provinces have differing regulations the more
restrictive of the two will govern the permissible weight of
the interprovincial traffic which, in effect, nullifies the
advantage of the province with the less restrictive regulation. There was a problem in Atlantic Canada where the
highway weights in adjacent provinces were not uniform,
but as of May 1 this adverse situation has been removed
by the regulatory bodies.
To sum up, then, I wish again to emphasize that transportation, whether trucking or any other mode, will not by
itself create products or markets. Markets must exist
before goods can be transported. In seeking to elevate
the productive capacity and economic status of the
Atlantic Provinces, it would be wrong to believe that the
provision of transportation facilities alone is all that is
required. Transportation facilities will follow economic
development when the need arises. It is also axiomatic
that truck transportation costs will be reduced, if when
planning new industrial locations, consideration is given
to those costs of transportation that can be kept low, such
as the provision of regulations that permit loads to be as
large as economically feasible, to keep regulations
uniform within the trading area, and to plan to the maximum extent feasible to take advantage of industrial
locations that will not require long one-way hauls of
inbound or outbound traffic.
I would now like to turn to the more specific theme, and
the subject of this particular panel: "Making Connections", that is, at the interface where transportation
modes transfer traffic to each other, such as at container
terminals. There is really no divergence between the
general economics of trucking and the specific
economics of "Making Connections". In "Making Connections" we are simply applying the advantages of each
mode of transportation to the specific traffic moving in
and out of the ports. Import and export traffic, of course,
moves by more than one mode and may often move by
three modes, ship-to-rail-to-truck is common, as in ship-
to-air-to-truck, and ship-to-pipeline-to-truck. This is
multimodal transportation. In fact, if you think about it,
nearly all transportation is multimodal. I cannot think of
many articles that are moved from initial raw material
source to ultimate consumer by only one mode.
We also see and hear the phrase intermodal in today's
transportation world. I think there is a clear distinction to
be made between the two. Intermodal is a much restricted
operation which really lies within one organization and
one regulatory authority, such as railway-owned piggyback traffic. Multimodal on the other hand, represents
the business-like co-operation required to facilitate the
transfer of traffic from one mode to the other and from one
regulatory world to another. Each of the present transportation modes has its own bill of lading and its own rate
structure for its part of the journey. Each mode is regulated by a different level of government and with quite
different degrees of regulation as to entry, rates, and the
like. Trucks are regulated by various provincial boards,
railways and airlines by federal boards. Ships are
relatively free of this kind of regulation.
It is at the multimodal interface that great strides have
recently been made in the overall movement of import and
export traffic. The most notable examples here in the
Atlantic provinces are of course in the containerports and
the container terminals where traffic can be moved
quickly and economically between all modes. But from
the transfer facility onward, each mode can best and most
economically operate within the economics of its own
mode. Compromises have been made and I believe that
the I.S.O. container is a splendid example of what can be
done to optimize the economies of an overall move
without too great a penalty on any individual mode.
I think "Connections" are well made today in the Atlantic
provinces. The growth of facilities, proceeded with in an
orderly way as you have been doing will result in a
continuation of the growth of this aspect of the Atlantic
provinces' economy. However, I feel I must interject a note
of caution here. The mere transportation of goods largely
to and from ports through your provinces to other parts of
the world will not contribute by itself a great deal to your
goal of economic parity with other parts of Canada.
However, because containerships from many parts of the world stop at both Halifax and Saint John, there is a better
opportunity for locally-produced goods to find low-cost
transportation to world markets. The sharing of the ships,
port facilities and land transportation by both through and
local traffic gives substantial cost advantages to locally-
produced goods in world markets. The problem for Atlantic Canada is how to take advantage of your natural
geographic location with your great all-year-round ports,
in order to build up local industry, trading in world
markets. The problem to be solved is a marketing problem
and not a transportation problem.
The trucking industry does not need to develop radical
new technology to assist shippers to move containerized
loads to and from the ports. As individual business
concerns they will be ingenious to keep their transportation costs as low as possible working closely with the
shipping public and within the framework of the
regulatory authorities. The trucking industry will continue
to work with shippers in Atlantic Canada to do their share
in the handling of products of industry within Atlantic
Canada, to and from the rest of Canada, to and from the
United States, and to and from the ports. All the trucking
industry needs is the requirement for traffic to be moved,
and when called upon, will perform the work to the best of
its ability within the present healthy competitive
transportation environment. CPRall

Management has been advised by the Canadian Coast Guard Ship
Safety Branch that some crew members on your vessel are absent from the ship without consent, and in contravention of
Safe Manning Regulations for Canadian Ships, It is not company policy to condone this practice, and I therefore urge
you to give consideration to the above-mentioned allegation.
As a temporary measure, the enclosed notices shall be
posted in crew spaces. Framed notices are presently being
assembled in the shops and will be distributed in due course.

Dear Mr. Ritter:
While Canadian Pacific has announced its intention to withdraw
the "Princess Patricia" from Alaska cruising at the end of her
1978 season, the policy of Canadian Pacific remains to continue
the Flag in Alaskan waters, and we are presently negotiating for
a replacement for the "Princess Patricia."
If we are successful, then the schedule which we intend to follow
in 1979 will be as per the attached.  You will be advised at the
earliest possible moment of our 1979 intentions.
On many occasions we have expressed our appreciation for the
courtesies extended to us by the representatives of your Department , and it has always been a pleasure for us to have the Park
Rangers sail with us.  We sincerely trust that we will be in a
position to have this privilege continued in 1979 and thereafter.
Yours very truly,

For your information we are attach- ■

in 1979 should we be successful in
obtaining a replacement for the
"Princess Patricia." We are hopeful
that we will be able to work out a
compatible arrangement for the berthing
of the "Patricia's" replacement in
Skagway, and some means of utilizing
the Lake Bennett side trip where there
appears to be a conflict with other
cruise ships.

In conjunction with CP Air and Canadian Government Office of Tourism,
we advised you of the special fares in effect on board the "Princess
Patricia" this past season, and that endorsations thereon (CGOT) would
indicate tickets were not commissionable.
There have been a few cases where Travel Agents have booked clients
prior to the inception of the CGOT programme, and whose clients
demanded that they be handled on same.. We therefore have been obliged
to accord Travel Agents and CP Air commission on these particular
cases; however, under these circumstances, CP Air will be giving us
the full tariff charge for accommodation occupied, and our ticket-
issuing clerk will indicate on the CGOT voucher that commission has
been deducted in order that proper billing may follow.
Will you kindly oblige.

During the months of June, July, August, September 1978, on each
Saturday therein, all parking in the vicinity of Piers B-C of
private automobiles, whether in reserved spots or otherwise, will
be prohibited, in view of the concentration of cruise ships on
those days, resulting from the change in cruise ship patterns this
year.  It will therefore be necessary for any BCCS - Northland
personnel having business within Manager's office on these days, to
park their cars at Pier A-3.
We are attempting to make some adjustment for the parking of automobiles, where necessary, under Granville Square, south side of
tracks, and will advise subsequently.
Failure to adhere to this directive will result in automobiles being
towed away at owner's expense, irrespective of position held within

In the preparation of refund money orders, it must be observed that
they are hot to be issued in excess of the limit, which is $250.00.
It is incumbent upon you to double check the issuance of money orders
prior to being finally mailed out, notwithstanding that same are
first typed and signed by an Officer of the Department.  We have been
severely criticized, and justly so, for the April 7 issue of Money
Order No. 0084278 in the amount of $400.00 U.S., obviously a typing
error.  This should have been caught when Mr. Hudson signed same, but
as a last resort, you should make certain that the amounts shown
and ticket information typed are factual.
Please ensure this will not occur again.

cc.  Mr. H.L. Hudson - It is also your responsibility when signing
money orders, to see they are correctly completed.  It is

of a money order.  This has been done in the past, but we
have been successful in catching it.  It is your responsibility

TEV "PRINCESS PATRICIA"
Dear Sir:
Since our Second Engineer on the above vessel has resigned,
and is now employed ashore elsewhere, we wish to make an
application to have Mr. Walter Gunn issued with a permit to
act in this capacity on board this ship for the season.
Mr. Gunn has been employed on board this vessel for some
seven years in a senior capacity, and is thoroughly conversant
with the ship.
It also should be considered that there is no suitably
qualified Engineer available for this position to the best
of our knowledge.
Your kind attention to this matter is appreciated.
Yours very truly,

The Shriners are taking a caliope together with a semi-trailer
on the noon sailing May 11 to Nanaimo, returning with the semitrailer only returning on the 4 p.m. sailing May 14. I have
agreed that the caliope will be transported at the rate of $10
and the semi trailer on an R.V. basis $17 in each direction.
Driver of each in addition will be charged $4» The caliope
will be in all probability driven by Doug Robinson, and although

Dear Miss Carr:
Thank you for your recent letter, in which you expressed interest
in working on this Company's vessels.
I regret to advise that this year's crew requirements have been
fully met, and there is little or no chance of our being, able to
employ you.
Due to the fact that our cruise vessel will be retired at the end
of the current season, all of our employees who previously worked
on the "Princess Patricia," have exercised their rights under
Union regulations to return to work for the ship's last season,
possibly out of sentiment; however, the prevalent unemployment
situation undoubtedly has some bearing on this matter.
In addition, we have applications made some months ago from a
number of people who must receive consideration for positions that
may arise through illness or leave of absence.
We appreciate your interest in Canadian Pacific, and hope you will
be successful in obtaining employment elsewhere.
Yours very truly,

Warren Johnsen Insurance, Inc.
2380 Vholesslonal Drive
V.O.  Box 1210
Santa Rosa,  Calilornla 95402.
Dear Mr. Schmitt:
I greatly appreciate the time taken In writing to us concerning
the article you recently read In Esquire Magazine, respecting
the sanitary Inspection ol cruise slvips, and In particular, the
comments pertaining to the "Vrlncess Vatrlcia."
It is unlortunate that the type ol Inspection reports used,
allocating numerical points lor non-compliance, are such that In
Some areas ol Inspection one slight   misdemeanor can mean a report
lailure; whereas, the skip may be totally passed on all aspects ol
sanitation otherwise.
Regulations do not require Indication ol heason loh a skip not
passing its sanitary Inspection, wlilch does cloud the entire issue
and make skips suspect ol being craioling with vermin.    The
"Vrlncess Vatrlcia" has had an enviable record, and as a matter ol
lad, during 1976 was reported as being the best maintained skip
In Alaska service.
As a result ol dlUlcultles experienced oil tke Vlorlda coast with
cruise skips, U.S. Coast Guard regulations require the addition to
drinking water ol two parts chlorine per million, which is an excessively high Input.    Ships are required to have automatic graph
instruments recording the degree ol chlorine In various parts ol
the skip.    In the Vaclllc Northwest we are lavoured with some ol
the purest drinking water anywhere In the world, and we have objected to the authorities that this degree ol chlorine is unnecessary.
Unlortunately, however, regulations must be adhered to, and it was
because ol a slightly lower than acceptable reading ol chlorine
content that an inspection report was unsatislactohy.    All other
aspects ol the ship's catering and public areas passed with llylng
colours, so you need not be concerned that the "Vrlncess Vatrlcia"
is operated other than in a superior manner, with the wellare ol
the passengers being uppermost In botix Management's and skip's
oUlcers' minds. 2 -
It is Interesting to note that the gentleman who wrote the article
In Esquire, recently appeared on a CBC television programme.    Although I personally did not see it, when mentioning your letter to
others In the o I lice, there were those who had seen the programme,
and he apparently Indicated the unlalrness ol his reports In tkat,
by the tone reports were actually circulated, many ol the trouble
spots had been rectllled, pointing out that once tlie report is
issued that's it, and even 11 you rectlly the areas ol concern immediately, there Is no change In manner ol repohting.
In any event, rest assured you will not encounter any sanitary
phoblems on board the "Vhlncess Vatrlcia."
Yours very truly,

From      T. King
To     Mr. M.W. Holland
Montreal Insurance Department require an- automatic sprinkler
system fitted to the Sun Lounge of the "Princess of Vancouver."
This lounge was principally built as an open area and did not
require the sprinkler system, but as time passed, a closure
door was fitted with a lock attached to cut down vandalism which
occurred quite often to the interior decor and furnishings.
We could re-open this area at all times to the public and therefore save the cost of fitting a sprinkler system, which would be
quite high or as the letter says, "fit the sprinkler."
In the meantime, I shall answer Mr. A. McDermott's letter to
see if he will accept the existing door with a removable door
and frame.
In addition to the above and in regard to the same lounge,
Ralph Marwood of Marine Designs has indicated that he will at some
time submit an invoice for the preliminary drawings he made up
to accommodate passengers of the party type in order to utilize
this space for entertainment.
Attached are the drawings which show a lay-out of tables—dance
area and bandstand, etc., giving three alternatives, ie. 40-70-
130 passengers.  The first and second could be housed with no
alterations to the outer bulkheads, the third would be to extend
these bulkheads outwards re shown on Phase ' 31.
Are we still considering this area for charter parties or do we
drop the idea.  The cost for alterations would be quite high,
probably in the region of $220,000.

Dear Mr. Sutherland:
On April 7th, 1978 I requested any information you might have
concerning damage to C.P. Transport Trailer 88086 that occurred
during the loading operation (of the Seaspan Doris) for the 2400
hours sailing, April 3i 1978 ex Vancouver.
I received your reply, dated April 26, 1978, indicating this
incident had not been reported as required by the standing instructions.
Consequently, I have attached copy of initial damage report from
our Traffic Supervisor stating "poor signalling from seaman aboard
Doris" was responsible for occurrence.
Would you please investigate this and supply me with particulars
as to why such obvious damage was not reported. I would also appreciate the comments of the deckhand as to why the incident occurred
(eg. Did hostler obey signals?).
Sincerely,
Manager, B.C.C.S.S.

In reference to your letter of 27 April 1978 concerning the
information as requested by Mr. H. Johnson, CP Ships.
Item 1 - The resultant damage sustained to the stem of the
vessel was a result of the grounding and not caused
by the refloating operations.
Item 2 - Vessel was in a narrow channel open to wind, weather
and currents; therefore, in a dangerous position while
aground. Vessel was at 90 degrees to the rock beach and
had she broached due to wind and strong tidal currents
prevalent in that area, she could have caused further
damage to hull and third party property.
Item 3 - (Per Item 5.B)
Propeller & Tailshaft
Propeller removed, spare propeller fitted, tailshaft
taper and keyway checked.  The above work was carried
out during one docking day plus one lay day, as mutually
agreed with Salvage Association (London).  Cost of
removal-repair of propeller and dye-check of tailshaft —
$5418.00.
Item 4 (Per Item 11 of Salvage survey report.)
Attached is the invoice submitted by Burrard Dry Dock Co. Ltd.
showing the complete breakdown of Item #11 with costs
indicated.

you are under 45 years of age and do not qualify for the Deferred

Attention:
Dear Sirs;
Mr. R.F. Roberts
Senior Surveyor
In response to your letter of 27 March with respect to the so-
called "crew drop off" problem on our vessel "Princess of Vancouver",
the following is respectfully submitted.
Our letter "Instruction to Crew Members Princess of Vancouver"
dated 20 February 197^ has not been rescinded, nor have the Ships'
Masters been given consent of management to permit "drop offs".
This office is not in receipt of any advice with respect to crew
members being absent from the ship without consent and therefore
must assume the vessel is operating with the number of crew as
appointed.
To clarify the company's position in this respect, I will reissue instructions to the Ships' Masters reaffirming company
policy.
Yours truly,
Manager, B.C.C.S.S.

Dear Mr. Barnes:
Thank you for your letter in response to mine of April 25.
So far as is known there are no courses available specifically
covering a ship's steward's duties, but any good hotel course
should suffice.
A ship's steward is basically a waiter, with the additional
duties of making up passengers' beds, keeping the cabins
clean, and attending to the passengers' requirements, generally.
In most cases we take on people as porters who may quickly
learn the duties of messboy (attending ship's officers) and
then on to waiter or bedroom steward.  Duties of the latter
two are combined on some vessels.
Trusting this information may be of use to you.

Dear Mr. Kelly:
Thank you for your recent letter, in which you expressed interest
in working on this Company's vessels.
I regret to advise that this year's crew requirements have been
fully met, and there is little or no chance of our being able to
employ you.
Due to the fact that our cruise vessel will be retired at the end
of the current season, all. of our employees who previously worked
on the "Princess Patricia," have exercised their rights under
Union regulations to return to work for the ship's last season,
possibly out of sentiment; however, the prevalent unemployment
situation undoubtedly has some bearing on this matter.
In addition,, we have applications made some months ago from a
number of people who must receive consideration for positions that
may arise through illness or leave of absence.
We appreciate your interest in Canadian Pacific, and hope you will
be successful in obtaining employment elsewhere.

Dear Ms. Broda:
Thank you for your recent letter, in which you expressed interest
in working on this.Company's vessels.
I regret to advise that this year's crew requirements have been
fully met, and there is little or no chance of our being able to
employ you.
Due to the fact that our cruise vessel will be retired at the end
of the current season, all of our employees who previously worked
on the "Princess Patricia," have exercised their rights under
Union regulations to return to work for the ship's last season,
possibly out of sentiment; however, the prevalent unemployment
situation undoubtedly has some bearing on this matter.
In addition, we have applications made some months ago from a
number of people who must receive consideration for positions that
may arise through illness or leave of absence.
We appreciate your interest in Canadian Pacific, and hope you will
be successful in obtaining employment elsewhere.
Yours very truly,

Dear Dr.  Grant-
Ass*L SuphJEngr,
Catering  Supt.
Tur.-.iina!  Supt
Deptf. Analyst.
Offic© Mgr,
Account.
ZZZHZ'
Worry Burchill and I have just been comparing notes lollowlng
his return Irom an extended holiday down south.
During our conversation he mentioned your Interest In cruising
and the possibility that you and Mrs. Grant mlgltt be considering an Alaska cruise tliis year.    Seeing tliis will be the last
year ol the "Vhlncess Vatrlcia's" cruising, you might possibly
llnd this will helgliten youh interest in travelling with us.
Harry mentioned that Mrs. Grant was a little concerned with regard to cruising,  and I wish to allay her concern about the
Inside Vassage route, which Is one ol the calmest water areas
by mileage that you can llnd around North America.    There is
only one area where you do leel the motion ol the ocean, and
that is crossing Queen Charlotte Sound; however, tlie duration
ol this crossing is only one and a hall hours, and although lor
some people it can be uncompellable, it is soon over, and In
view ol the time spent on the entire cruise, really a passing
moment.
I am taking the liberty ol enclosing our current brochure and
Dally Cruise Bulletin,  Irom which you can determine that the
scheduling ol the "Vatrlcia" permits as much cruising ol the
Inside Vassage as is possible, giving you more U.S.  ports, together with two Canadian ports, than the other cruise ship
schedules permit.
By reason ol the "Vatrlcia's" size, we are able to take tlie ship
Into areas where the larger cruise ships are unable to sail,
tiiereby bringing you closer to tlie Alaskan scenery; such places
as Wrangell Narrows and Tracy Arm, which are two examples ol this,
you are probably quite lamillar witJt these areas,  but 11 not
you will llnd thejm to be two ol the many highlights ol our Alaska
cruise. tfteftg   ^rorf  gfegM  /f)   hn   ifiiDiii   nfl   ffm   imhi/   highPightk  nfi   nnh   AfnjJx£u
cjuxls'e.    Wrangell Narrows is a narrow passage permitting us to
stay within the Inside Vassage rather than go around Cape Decision
and encounter open water again.    Quite olten called the Christinas
Tree route, there are 72 marker buoys, alternatively red and green,
and as the ship zigzags along the channel, you do have the impression ol their being ornaments on the Christmas Tree. At points
the channel is hall a mile across, at others it seem& only arm's
breadth.    II you are lucky you will see animal lile along the shores,
but the overall scenery passing along the channel is, in its ell,
worth viewing, and ol course, it is best seen In the early part ol
the season when you get the greatest daylight hours.    At the North
end ol Wrangell Narrows is situated the City ol Vetersburg, which
always acknowledges the passing ol the ship, and In return the ship
acknowledges the citizens' blinking ol lights and waving ol dish-
towels; really quite a Irlendly atmosphere In this tiny part o{
the wohld.
Thacy Arm, wider than Wrangell Narrows, is much like a Norwegian
Ijord,  but with more luxuriant growth, waterlalls, meadows, towering
dills and scenery that is just spectacular.    At the end ol this
24-mile arm ol water are situated two glaciers, the North and South
Sawyer.    Sometimes,  because ol the llow ol Ice Irom the glaciers,  you
cannot get all the way up the Arm,  but last year we were lortunate
In making it on almost every trip.    It is a real thrill to see how
the vessel navigates the Arm, turns around and continues her voyage.
The sights and silence ol Alaska are truly worth   seeing, not to
mention the Irlendly people both ashore and on board the "Vatrlcia."
Harry undoubtedly has answered many questions lor you and is really
lar more knowledgeable than any ol us ashore In Vancouver, but 11
we can assist you In any way to make a decision to travel to Alaska
this year, please leel \ree to phone me collect at 665-2502, or
speak lurther to Harry.

prove to be constructive.
I spoke to Mr. Parham yesterday afternoon, and mentioned to him
that we were planning these meetings in mid May, and suggested
that it would be to our benefit and his, if he were to be in
attendance.  However, I stated that you would follow this up
with him, and he should act in accord with your direction.

To   MEMORANDUM FOR FILE
File:  T-430
Meeting was held in the Manager's office, Pier "B", at 1100 Monday,
1 May, to determine the status of the move into Prince Rupert.
The following positions and related action were determined as
follows:
1. SITE
The South end of the Fairview Terminal will be used for access
into Prince Rupert, and while this is not as desirable as the
North end, it appears to be the only alternative. No further
consideration is being given to any other site.
2. EQUIPMENT
The capacity of the flotation slip is currently under scrutiny,
and it appears that the limit could be as little as 25 tons,
which would be inadequate in light of potential traffic
volumes.  Accordingly, if this is the case, action will be
taken to increase the load limit to 40 tons.
Consideration is currently being given to the load distribution
by Mr. D. Boyd of C.B.A.  The ramp could be modified with heavy
stiffeners to attain desired limit.  Site drawings were to be
available Monday p.m.
3. MOVEMENT OF RAMP TO SITE
Mr. A.N. Cairns has this in hand and will obtain the necessary
crane and barge equipment.  Crane's transport Vancouver and
Prince Rupert will be required.  The provision of the appropriate
dolphins, estimated to be four (60 piles), and the required
fender logs, is under way.  Land excavation-fill will be required,
and the appropriate parties have been contacted with respect to
this project.
(Form 102-R - 2 -
4. LABOUR
There is some concern with respect to the Union responsibility
for the on-dock and off-dock handling of equipment.  It is
understood that longshoremen will be responsible for the handling
of equipment from the barge to the shore, but the further movement from the compound to delivery sites warrants further consideration, particularly in light that the traffic going into
Prince Rupert formerly went into Kitimat and was handled by
Steel Workers, and as well, motor units to be used for the
delivery of these volumes, belonged to Skeena Motor Carriers,
totally represented by Steel Workers today.  However, it has
. been long understood that Prince Rupert is a Teamster town.
Mr. Aitken is taking this matter up with the B.C.M.E.A., and
CP Rail's Industrial Relations Department, to come up with the
desired solution.
5. CONTRACTS
Contracts covering both the lease of the ramp and use of the
Fairview Terminal, are required.  With respect to the latter,
it has been strongly suggested that in light of the fact
we are providing the required equipment and installation
thereof, at our cost, we should not be taxed full across-the-
dock National Harbours Board rates.  Mr. Jones is to take
this up further with Capt. Kitching.
SUMMARY
It was impossible to project a target date for the completion of
this project, but it is expected that this can be done by week's
end, when many of the questions will be answered.

Dear Capt. Fleming:
Attached is an invoice from Seaspan International Ltd. for
costs totalling $4,847.38, incurred for towing Northland
equipment on the dates 10-11-12 January 1978.
As you will appreciate, these costs resulted from action
necessitated by the fact that the "Fury" was not available
to us, as was expected within the terms of our contract,
on these dates, and therefore, it is considered these sums
are the account of Northland Navigation Ltd.
Should you have further queries, kindly advise.
Your early attention to this matter will be appreciated.

As discussed, the amount of $15,203 was higher than that originally

With the purchase of each and every automobile ticket, the purchaser is given a ticket envelope (copy attached) outlining this

in our tariffs, which are open to public inspection.
I have contacted our offices in both Nanaimo and Vancouver, and
since they confirm that this auto space reservation was not cancelled as required, I am not able to make a full refund of the
charges assessed.
I have, however, made arrangements to have the passenger fare
(value $4.00), which is not subject to the above restriction, refunded to you. A cheque should reach you within the next .two

This refers to your memorandum of 20 April 1978, regarding your
meeting with Mr. Peter Lester, Mayor of Prince Rupert.
I am in complete agreement with Mr. Lester's comments which you
have conveyed in the penultimate paragraph of your memo.  While
in Kitimat, I had breakfast with Mr. George Thorn, the Mayor of
Kitimat, who expressed much the same feeling.
You must remember we are in a pre-election period and that
politicians not only are anxious to have commitments which
could assist their electoral aspirations, but could prove embarrassing to a company such as Canadian Pacific in the postelection period.

This is in reference to your memorandum dated 20 April 1978 regard-
your meeting with senior personnel of Lindsay Cartage Co. Ltd. at
Prince Rupert.
It should be realized that on our entry into Prince Rupert we plan
to place the appropriate equipment in that city to handle our
P. & D. and some long-haul traffic.  Accordingly, the indication
which you have given, which is that additional traffic would be made
available to them, could be erroneous, in that we appear to have
adequate equipment at this time and place to make such a move by
ourselves economically feasible..
You may wish to bear this in mind in your further discussion.

Also, to be forwarded to you within the next week are copies of a
report prepared by Mr. D.W. Francis on the Northland operations,
and copies of reports on the proposed Vancouver-Prince Rupert
service and the Kitimat-Kemano service prepared by Mr. J. Balfour.
You are requested to review these reports in detail and the proposed recommendations found therein.  Your views on these recommendations should be completely objective, and while none of these
documents is considered Management's final say in these operations,
your comments with respect to your acceptance or non-acceptance
of recommendations or points raised in the reports should be backed
by positive input.  It is my intention that we should commence review of these reports on 15 May, with all personnel in attendance.
It is realized that the 15th is the sailing date of the "Princess
Patricia," and that discussions on that date may be preliminary in
approach; however, each individual should be prepared to give full
consideration to the contents of these reports on 16 May, and we
will take the time necessary to ensure that at the conclusion of
these meetings, hopefully in the p.m. of 17 May, all parties
understand the reasons for the standing recommendations and the
purpose which they are expected to fulfil.
I ask each staff member concerned to give a whole-hearted effort
to solving the problems which we face in the operations, as it is
only through such an attitude that we will attain maximum benefit
for Canadian Pacific.

R-608, regarding the charter party between Empire Tugboats Ltd.,
McKenzie Barge and Marine Ways Ltd., and Canadian Pacific
Limited, and charter of Tug "Island Commander" from Island-Sea
Marine Ltd.
With respect to the latter charter we presented to you covering
the lease arrangement for the "Island Commander," I request that
you prepare a charter between the parties concerned and within
the terms of intent, which adequately protects the interests of
Canadian Pacific.  I am in complete agreement that the monies
involved are sufficient to warrant having such a charter contract
drafted.  Mr. Cairns, Marine Superintendent of this Department,
will be available to assist you in any manner required.
With respect to the charter party between Empire Tugboats Ltd.
and McKenzie Barge and Marine Ways Ltd. and Canadian Pacific
Limited, I would appreciate advice as to what conditions would be
acceptable to you to have the "Approved as to Form" stamp placed
on that agreement before registering same with the Secretary's
office.  I realize the points you have raised are totally legitimate,
but as you state, it is probably too late to effect changes as
the charter was executed by all parties as of 29 March 1978.
Any assistance you can give with respect to the above would be
appreciated.  For your convenience I am attaching copies of the
original document, the charter party between Canadian Pacific

charter party drawn up covering the use of the "Incan St. Laurent"
in the Vancouver-Whittier, Alaska trade.

To Mr. R.R. Reid
On Friday, April 29, I received a telephone call from a passenger
by the name of John Barclay of #3 -. 876 East Georgia Street, telephone 254-7870. He claims that his parents approached the ticket
office in Nanaimo and his father, a very old-looking senior citizen,
blind, placed his white cane on the ticket counter and asked for
a ticket to Vancouver, for which he was charged full price.
He later discovered that he should have received a reduced-rate
ticket and considers that his age and blindness should have been
obvious to the ticket clerk, who should have automatically offerred
him the reduced rate. The son described the ticket clerk as a large
man, balding, with glasses, and claims that he was addressed very
brusquely.
Perhaps you will like to put something out to the ticket offices in
this regard.

Hopefully, we can rectify the problem through Mr^. Jones' suggestion
to limit the weight of the loads placed in the containers destined
to Kemano.  I would suggest the type of equipment which has been
requested, would prove to be extremely costly should we follow
that route.  Accordingly, if we are unable to limit the weight
of the containers, then I would suggest we should look at the method
of unloading the unit on the deck of the barge.
May I please have your recommendation with the intent of implementation at an early date.

Dear Mr. Johnson:
This is in reference to your letter dated 26 May 1978 to Mr.
H.L. MacAulay, Superintendent, Vancouver Division, CP Rail,
and our conversations previous to that date regarding the wedge
of land adjacent to the Pier A-3 site in lieu of the parcel at
the extreme west end of CP Rail's waterfront property.
As you are aware, CP Rail has provided this land to the BCCSS
as part of our overall property requirement in our operations,
and it is nothing less than vital to our service.  Accordingly,
we are very hesitant to relinquish any rights to its use, but
find at this time our access has been heavily impaired by
materials and equipment being placed on this land.
You stated your intention to discuss with me an "exchange" of
property, which you suggested would answer both your needs and
those of our operation more efficiently.  To date you have failed
to present your plan to this office for review, which I hereby
request that you now undertake at your earliest convenience, as
without agreement for exchange of alternative property by the
BCCSS we are exposed to considerable inconvenience.  The Pacific
Region and the BCCSS have always worked closely in the use of its
waterfront terminal, and I would suggest that any arrangement that
is reached would, of necessity, require the total acceptance of
both parties.
I look forward to an early reply.
Yours very truly,

Re. Casualty Insurance for Janitor Service
This will confirm our telephone conversation of this date in
which you suggested that since Canadian Pacific Ltd.'s general
insurance coverage would not cover an individual doing janitorial work at the Wharf Ticket Office or the Terminal Manager's
offices (due to fact individual would not be under formal contract) , we should seek alternate insurance coverage.
Accordingly, I have contacted Mr. Jim Atkins, Marsh & MacLennan
and he has confirmed that one of their underwriters would issue
a policy in the name of the individual with Canadian Pacific
Ltd. being co-named. Coverage would include .$1 million third
party liability. Cost of such policy is quoted at $200.00 per
year.
Please advise name of individual if decision is made to go

NEWFOUNDLAND RAIL SERVICE ABANDONMENT?
A federal-provincial Royal Commission on Newfoundland's transportation, whose report is due for release in mid-July, is expected to
recommend that abandonment of CN's 750-mile rail line between Port-
aux-Basques and St. John's is both desirable and inevitable.

TRENDS AND TOPICS
A bill to streamline CN's financial picture by converting $808-mil-
lion of debt into common shares get final reading. But a committee
cautions CN not to cut freight rates to take business from trucks.

The post office is under siege. Private couriers and small package
specialists have cut into parcel post profits, and a new U.S.-based
small parcel company is trying to enter the Canadian market.
Transport Minister Otto Lang says the new technical study he
announced will not be in any way a duplication of the work done
by the Royal Commission on grain and transportation.

COAL SLURRY REPORT PROVES BOON TO RAILS
WASHINGTON - A preliminary victory for the nation's railroads has been
scored by issuance of a Congressional  report stating strong opposition
to legislation allowing coal-slurry pipeline companies to acquire public
land.    H.R.  1609,  the Coal  Pipeline Act of 1978, which gives coal-slurry
pipeline companies the right of eminent domain, has been reported out by
both the Interior and the House Public Works Committees.

ROADRAILER VEHICLE SEEN BOOSTING RAILS' SHARE OF PIGGYBACK MARKET
NEW YORK - Roadrailer, a promising new hardware system developed by the
Bi-Modal  Corp., may result in the nation's major railroads gaining a much
larger share of the piggyback market, according to one of the consultants
involved in the project.    The Roadrailer vehicle is basically a semitrailer, modified so that in addition to the normal capability of being
pulled over the highway by a truck-trailer, it can be moved via railroad by
locomotive power with the Roadrailers coupled into train configuration in
train lengths of 20-75 Roadrailer units.

UNIFORM MEASUREMENT SYSTEM HELD 'IMPERATIVE' FOR RAILROADS
NEW YORK - Unless piggyback operations promptly adopt already-proven motor
carrier marketing, pricing philosophies, operational procedures and management thinking, the railroad industry could face a continued erosion of high-
value general commodities over the next decade, according to R.B. Short,
director of intermodal sales and services, Norfolk and Western Railway Co.
Intermodal managers must be able to think like truckers, market like truckers,
price like truckers and do all of these in the same time-frame that the
truckers identify market opportunities and move in pricewise to capture the
traffic, Mr. Short said.

MB GALLOPS TO RESCUE OF FRENCH SUBSIDIARY

(Vancouver Sun, June 23) RAILWAY
IN A SILVER VEIN
CHICAGO - This year's Silver Certificate winners, Grand Trunk Western
and CP Rail, were able, through innovative marketing programs, to capture traffic by a competing mode.
The GTW faced potential competition from barge and pipeline operators,
but finally put massive Tank-Trains into action carrying Canadian fuel
oil to a Michigan utility company. And, despite competing truckers, CP
Rail has been able to build a brisk business shipping produce from
Southern California to Eastern Canada.
Both marketing plans are proof that railroads can compete with other
modes if they muster imaginative and aggressive marketing efforts.
CP Rail's marketing problem was different than GTW's -- but equally as
challenging. Able to increase its traffic in produce from Southern
California to wholesalers in Eastern Canada, the railroad had to develop
scheduling and connection changes to meet potential customer needs. But
the biggest part of the task was informing key shippers of this run-
through service, with sixth-morning placement in Toronto and seventh-
morning placement in Montreal.
To do that, the railroad concocted a direct mail campaign in both French
and English detailing its two produce runs, "The Salad Bowl Express,"
and "The Green Garden Special."
Each day for a week, important traffic people received a stuffed toy
bearing a tag which supplied a new detail about CP Rail service, equipment, and pricing. CP Rail, for instance, offered special pricing incentives applied to the movement of heavy loading commodities, such as
carrots and citrus products. The toys, called "vegimals" because they
took the form of broccoli, celery, carrots, eggplant, and cauliflower,
became quite popular with recipients, and, more important, made CP
Rail's message stick.
On the last day of the promotion, a salesman showed up with a vegimal
tote bag and a brochure which summarized the program. After this, CP
Rail operating and customer relations personnel met with each customer
to set up preferred placement time.
The program was the result of a market study which discovered the needs
of shippers, receivers, as well as those of connecting carriers, which
include the Southern Pacific, the Union Pacific, the Chicago & North
Western, the Chessie System, and the Santa Fe. These needs included:
service, reliability, and consistency, simplified claims procedures,
seasonal requirements, equipment needs and trends, preferred routings,
pricing factors, and car location reporting.
The program involved these CP Rail departments besides Marketing: Advertising and Public Relations, Sales, Transportation, Customer Relations, Claims, Operations and Maintenance, and Intermodal Services. In 1977, CP Rail's ambitious efforts brought a reassuring payoff: 381
additional carloads and $1,334,000 in additional revenue.
As the award-winning performance of CP Rail and Grand Trunk Western indicate, imagination in railroad marketing does exist.

CN BILL GETS FINAL READING
OTTAWA - A government bill to streamline the Canadian National Railways'
financial picture by converting $808-million of debt into common shares
was given final reading June 21 in the Senate.
The bill, already approved by the Commons, now needs only routine royal
assent to become law. However the Senate railway committee, reporting
the bill back into the Upper House for final reading, cautioned the CNR
to take into account fears of the Canadian Trucking Association. The
association told the committee it feared the national railway, now
seemingly assured of profits for years to come, might cut freight rates
to take away business from trucks.
Under the bill the CNR executive says its ratio of debt to equity will
be more in line with other successful railways and will allow it to borrow more easily from foreign markets.

REPORT EXPECTED TO ADVISE ABANDONMENT OF NEWFOUNDLAND'S OUTMODED RAIL
SERVICE
HALIFAX - Abandonment of Newfoundland's trans-island, narrow-gauge rail
line and the broadening of existing federal subsidies paid on the movement of waterborne cargo are believed to be among recommendations of a
federal-provincial Royal Commission on Newfoundland transportation that
is due to be released in mid-July.
It is understood that the Sullivan Commission has concluded the
abandonment of the 750-mile Canadian National Railways' line between Port-
aux-Basques and St. John's is both desirable and inevitable.
All aspects of land, sea and air transportation in Newfoundland were
investigated, but considerable attention was focused on the future of
the island's outmoded rail service. It was reduced to a purely freight
involvement years ago with the withdrawal of rail passenger service and
its replacement by cross-island bus service.
CN's own submission held out little optimism for the future of the remaining freight operation. In seven years the ratio of rail, as opposed
to truck-borne, traffic has diminished from 90 to about 65 per cent and
the pace of change is accelerating. Current cargo volume is sufficient
only to permit one major train to operate in each direction daily. If abandonment is decided upon, CN Atlantic regional vice-president D.
W. Blair said it would be essential to have alternative modes of service
"visibly in place and working" before the changeover occurred. These
would include both an improvement and expansion of the existing Trans-
Canada Highway system and other intermodal systems. He said the big
question will be whether such a change should happen in one, 10 or 20
years.
Time would be necessary to avoid serious disruption of the existing rail
labor force. Between 800 and 1,000 of the roughly 6,000 CN employees in
Newfoundland are involved in the rail operation. Some of these would be
absorbed into an expansion of CN's present express and other trucking
operations.

GRAIN TRANSPORTATION DELAYS CALLED COSTLY, THREAT TO CANADA'S REPUTATION
FOR RELIABILITY
OTTAWA - Grain transportation delays have already cost farmers more than
$150-million in lost sales and are damaging Canada's reputation as a
reliable supplier, the advisory committee of the Canadian Wheat Board
says.
Further losses will be sustained unless the railways improve their performances, according to the committee. Based simply on vessels already
waiting at export ports, a back-up of more than one million metric tons
of grain is involved in lost sales. "This is not counting the high
demurrage costs involved or the damage that is being done to this country's reputation as a reliable grain supplier."
Wheat Board Commissioner Esmond Jarvis has estimated demurrage costs
could reach or surpass a record $17-million, but other sources have
placed the estimate as high as $30-million.

MODERN RAILROADS STATUS REPORT: ELECTRIFICATION
CHICAGO - These are advantages of railroad electrification:
-- ABOUT twice the horsepower of a diesel electric can be contained
in an electric locomotive unit;
-- MORE horsepower per ton of locomotive weight and superior adhesion
are available for long grades and heavy drags, while extra peak
horsepower is available for acceleration;
-- ELECTRIC units need less maintenance than diesels;
-- ELECTRIC units have higher availability; 8
-- HIGHER speed operations combined with faster turnarounds reduce
crew costs;
-- TECHNOLOGY is advanced with no technological problems foreseen;
-- ELECTRIFIED operations are not dependent upon a finite petroleum
supply, but can use coal, nuclear, geothermal, solar, and hydro-
supplied energy as well.
The disadvantages boil down to just one major one, cost of installation.
But most studies find the rate of return-on-investment (ROI) 20 per cent
or better, thus making electrification attractive on a purely economic
basis. Unfortunately, the issue is a political one as well.
Militating against immediate and wide-spread conversion to electric
operations are uncertainties about the direction government policy will
take in transportation and energy. Private railroads could hardly convince shareholders of the need for capital investments in the billions
for electrification without assurances of continued traffic growth. And
growth is very doubtful if Congress allows heavier trucks on the highways,
ICC allows greater freedom of entry for private and unregulated truckers,
and Congress enacts Carter administration policy favoring coal-slurry
pipelines.
Another major deterrent is the energy policy vacuum. Who knows whether
fuel oil or electricity prices will rise faster? To date, electricity -••
prices are rising apace with those of diesel fuel, despite government
warnings of impending oil shortages.
Studies by several railroads have found electrification attractive, but
none has launched a project.
If railroads increased efficiency through electrification and provided
better service, they could handle a lot more freight that now moves via
highway. Then there would be more impressive savings of oil now being
used by trucks.
But railroads have more pressing capital programs to improve track,
signaling, and equipment. Electrification is likened by Richard A.
Novotny, Chief, Passenger Systems & Facilities Div., FRA, to a new
machine a manufacturer might buy to improve production efficiency.
"However, if his plant is generally run down, he'll fix that before he
buys the new machine," he said.
S. G. Hamilton, a general manager at the General Electric Company, continues to be optimistic about electrification of the high-density main
lines of railroads in the U.S. and throughout the world. "International
electrification activities are strong but somewhat delayed from initial
schedules.
"On the domestic scene, many studies have been completed showing good
rates-of-return on electrification, as all agree the technology is
available today to do the job. It is a matter of priorities, and the
railroads will clearly need appropriate help in financing the electrification," he said.

CP RAIL REJECTS UNFAIR CRITICISMS
WINNIPEG - CP Rail, June 23, categorically rejected criticisms that attribute all deficiencies in Canada's grain-handling system to the railways.
J.W. Malcolm, CP Rail's Prairie Region vice-president, said: "Anyone who
suggests that increasing the supply of railway cars would solve the difficulties experienced by the grain industry this year just does not understand how the industry works.
"I have ignored such suggestions for many months.    I have preferred to work
within the industry at the job of moving the grain to market.    But unfair
and unfounded criticisms issued this week by the Manitoba Pool  Elevators
and by the Canadian Wheat Board's Advisory Committee cannot be allowed to
pass.
"The elevator company's suggestion that the railways may be  'hiding'  cars
that could be used to move grain is simply ridiculous.    CP Rail has combed
its entire fleet for usable cars, and has managed to find more than 1,500
to add to the 11,000 cars in grain service.    No usable car sits idle any
longer than is necessary.
"The Advisory Committee's intimation that the railways alone are responsible
for alleged lost sales opportunities worth $150-million is irresponsible at
best.
"If opportunities have been lost due to failure to have all  of the required
types of grain in the right places at the right times, it is a result of
many factors, as always.    Railway difficulties are but one factor and those
difficulties do not include a shortage of cars.
"More cars would not have moved more grain last fall  before winter weather
started hampering rail movements.    They would not help now that there are
more loaded cars in ports than the terminals can unload."
Mr. Malcolm said many factors have contributed to whatever shortfalls may
have occurred.    They include: late ship arrivals, bad weather, long hauling
distances, wrong types of grain in export terminals, tough and damp grain
needing drying, inconsistencies in grain movement programming.
"When all these factors are combined with a schedule that is so heavy it
allows little room for catching up if a shortfall does occur, there are
bound to be hitches.    Considering how many external, uncontrollable difficulties have hampered the performance this year, Canadians should be
applauding the fact that grain is being exported at or near record levels.
"if we must point fingers, let us at least point at real problems.    CP Rail
believes that a better job can be done, and has undertaken many measures
this crop year that have helped to enhance its capability. 11
"It may be easier for others to point at the railways and suggest that more
cars would solve problems, but that is not an answer. It merely diverts
attention from real deficiencies in an industry that seems to resist change.
Aside from one grain company with an innovative proposal that seemed to be
ignored, CP Rail is the only company I am aware of that has tried to improve
its performance by seeking new and better ways of operating.
"Constructive criticism would be welcome, but there is neither realism nor
justice in demanding that the railways make up for the deficiencies of all
segments of the grain-handling industry. After all, the railways are the
only segment that is required by law to operate at a loss."

AVIATION
FLYING THE SNARLED-UP SKIES
NEW YORK - Across the U.S. last week   airports were clogged with unparalleled
throngs of passengers and hit by unprecedented numbers of snafus and snarls.
United Airlines hauled more passengers  (148,479) on June 15 than on any other
day in its history.    Said one slightly dazed United executive:  "It's incredible
-- we are carrying more people than at the end of a holiday weekend,"
The best -- or the worst ~ is still  to come.    As summer begins, Americans are
taking to the air in unexpectedly high numbers.    The airlines'  forecast of an
8% to 10% traffic growth this year has been about 5 percentage points too low.
Load factors, which ran at 54% last year, are climbing into the mid-60s.    The
outlook:  the best year ever for U.S.  lines with revenues reaching $22-billion
and earnings up $100-million, to $700-million.
But passenger discontent is rising even faster. The Civil Aeronautics Board
is receiving a record number of complaints. Departure delays, which totaled
6,800 during the first three weeks of June, are running ahead of last year's
rate.
Success is the root of the problem. More than one-third of all passengers now
fly on cut-rate fares, 20% to 50% below regular tariffs, and most would not be
aloft without them.
The complexity of the cheapie fares puts a burden on reservation agents, who
must spend far more time explaining catches to passengers.
Airlines are trying to cope by putting on more flights.    United, for example,
is adding 129 per day.    Aisles will become narrower and the cabins more
cramped as an extra seat per row is added by many airlines in the Lockheed
TriStar, Boeing 747 and McDonnell  Douglas DC-10 jumbos.    To handle the flood
of incoming calls, the airlines are hiring more agents; American has engaged
250 and United 300.
The lines might have handled the passenger surge with fewer complications if
three other factors had not handicapped them so severely:
Over the past few weeks, the air-traffic controllers have been staging slowdowns at selected airports.
Much of the weather has ranged from bad to impossible.
The past winter's freezes left some runways in a potholed and fractured condition. Resurfacing jobs have shut some runways at a number of airports,
including Washington National, 0'Hare and Denver.
Despite the momentary discomforts, the summer of '78 offers some happy prospects. Plane builders and engine makers can expect larger orders because the
lines will have to expand their fleets more than anticipated. Travelers can
look forward to a broader array of fare reductions. Airline executives have
long been divided over a key question: Do low fares pay off? Looking at all
those new passengers -- and profits -- the answer has to be yes.

WHY THE CANADIAN MOTEL BUSINESS IS DOOMED TO KEEPING ITS PRICES HIGH
TORONTO - The federal government has organized a task force to try to make
tourism more attractive in this country, but there's one thing that group
will not be able to do: it will not find a way to make highway motel accommodation in Canada as cheap as it is in the United States.
The task force might find answers to high labor costs, or high taxation,
or the high cost of doing business, or any of the items cited by the industry, but it can't get around the fact that the country doesn't have the
people to support low-cost motels or the high cost of building them.

SHIPPING
FEDERATION WARY OF MOVES TO REVIVE DEEP-SEA FLEET
MONTREAL - The Shipping Federation of Canada is engaged in one of the most
important battles of its 75-year history: Should Canada have a deep-sea
merchant fleet?
In general, the shipping federation members in Montreal oppose the move.
They represent the agencies which operate ships in and out of Canada. The
ships fly foreign flags, and not surprisingly, the federation members are
wary of moves which would give them Canadian competition.
"The basic fact to remember here," says Jochem Carton, president of March
Shipping Ltd., one of the largest and most powerful members of the federation, "is that even the proponents of a Canadian shipping fleet say that
it would not make money under the existing rules. So Canadians should ask
themselves if they really want another industry which they would have to
subsidize in one way or another."
But that point of view has a powerful opponent in the Dominion Marine
Association.
The DMA represents what is left of Canada's merchant marine, the lake ships
and coastal vessels which ply our waters. The Canadian shipowners want to
get back into the world market and say that it would not cost the taxpayer
a cent -- and that it would add to general revenues with the taxes the
government could levy on the salaries earned.
The first thing the DMA would do is buy enough PacAc bulk carriers, 65,000-
ton ships which could go through the Panama Canal, so that they could
compete in the grain trade. Canada has sold $2.5 billion worth of grain
abroad this year and the shippers would like a piece of the action.

BUSINESS & FINANCE
CANADIAN GROUP SEEN LIKELY TO GET INDONESIAN COAL MINING CONTRACT
JAKARTA - A Canadian group led by Montreal Engineering Co. appears likely to
be awarded a key contract for part of a $l-million (U.S.) Indonesian coal
mining and power project, sources indicated.
The Canadian group which also includes Swan Wooster Engineering Inc. and
Canadian Pacific Consulting Services has been locked in intense competition
with three U.S. companies and a British group to win the pact covering
project management and engineering design for the mining and transport
components of the plan.
Sources in Jakarta said that an Indonesian working group, together with the
technical advisers to the project, recommended last week that the Canadian
group be invited to negotiate the contract with Indonesian project officials.
If the recommendation is backed by senior officials, the Canadians would
have the inside track on winning the job, the sources added.
The coal project involves expansion of existing mines at Bukit Asam in South
Sumatra, investments in rail and sea transport systems and the building of a
750-megawatt power station in West Java. The scheme is the cornerstone of
Indonesia's new domestic energy policy which seeks to develop alternatives

roughly 31 per cent; however the 4.8 tcf received still represents one of
the largest increases approved in recent years.

POST OFFICE DECLARES WAR ON SMALL PARCEL COMPETITION
DON MILLS, Ont. - The post office is under siege. Private couriers and
small package specialists have cut deeply into its parcel post profits
and accusations of poor service and widespread mismanagement are running
rampant.
Now it finds itself facing still a greater threat. United Parcel Services Inc. of Greenwich, Connecticut -- a small parcel company which
post office officials claim nearly decimated the U.S. postal system --
is currently before the Ontario Highway Transport Board seeking licenses
to operate commercial vehicles throughout most of Ontario and into the
U.S. and Quebec. Post office officials fear that if UPS is permitted to
expand in Canada it will be hit as hard as the U.S. post office which
saw the number of parcels it handled dwindle dramatically during the
past 15 years.
James Corkery, Canada's deputy postmaster general, testified that between 1962 and 1977 the U.S. Post Office saw its volume of parcels drop
from 972 million to 385 million, or by 51 per cent. In the same period
UPS parcel volume increased from 182 million to 950 million, or by 522
per cent.
Richard Harling, the post office's market manager, claims UPS was able
to grab the lucrative-small parcel field in the U.S. because the American postal officials were caught napping. "We won't make the same
mistake," he claimed. At stake is a small parcel market estimated to
be worth half-a-billion dollars to Canadian carriers.
Other than the post office itself, UPS reportedly poses a market threat
to small local carriers for whom the parcel trade is vital, as well as
to companies like CN Express and CP Express, both of which are streamlining their own small package services in an effort to compete with the
post office. CP Express inaugurated its CANPAR (Canadian Parcel Delivery Service Ltd.) service a few years ago as a direct result of delivery
problems in the postal system. "Our survival as a small shipment specialist depends on the results of this (UPS) application," said Paul
Lavigne, vice-president, CP Express.
UPS claims it will not clash with private couriers like Purolator Couriers Ltd. of Toronto, BDC Ltee of Montreal and Loomis Courier Service
Ltd. of Vancouver -- all of which are American subsidiaries. Those
firms, like most of the courier companies, specialize in fast, reliable
delivery of letters, documents and the like. UPS is a small-package
specialist and promises to be more reliable than the post office and not
much more expensive.

This is further to your request for summer relief in Kitimat
during the next few months, which we discussed during your
last visit to Vancouver.
Attached is copy of a memorandum prepared by Mr. Aitken, which.
indicates that unfortunately we have no Operating personnel
available to assist you.
Accordingly, it is suggested, and by copy of this memorandum to
Mr. Jones I am sure it will be considered, that a member of
the Marketing and Sales/Traffic staff might be able to assist
you.  However, please be assured that we will consider the
comments raised in the ultimate paragraph of Mr. Aitken's memorandum, and will work towards providing you with the necessary relief
next summer.

This refers to your memorandum dated 26 June 1978, attached to
which was a layout of an advertisement promoting our services
(BCCS-Northland) here on the West Coast.
My earlier comments with respect to this ad still stand, which
were as follows:
1. I think the photographic and print layout excellent - simple,
direct and appealing.
2. The ad carries the message "Talk to us," but in no place
gives a form of communication by which the reader can contact
us; i.e., telephone, telex, or address. This
should be corrected, particularly in trade magazines, which
are used as ready reference.
3. My own thinking, and I believe this to be the general concept
by which Coastal Marine Operations was created, is that the
senior body dictates governing influences on policy and
practices.  The trade here on the West Coast is much more
familiar with either the BCCS or Northland designation, and
it is my belief it was our intention to take advantage of
the latter*s respectability in the trade to bring it under
the operational auspices of the B.C. Coast Steamship Service.
I would suggest that the designation Coastal Marine Operations
on such an ad, gives the impression that this is the only
field of operations for which senior personnel is responsible;
yet in practice, this is not true, and the General Manager has
jurisdiction over any coastal or inland waterborne operations
in Canada, and presumably the U.S., if such were in existence.

Further to our discussions at yesterday morning's Management
Meeting (M.M.) regarding the assignment of numbers to the
Northland fleet of road equipment.
Would you kindly provide me with your precise recommendations
in this matter.
It is my understanding that you intend to place both the numbers
currently in use and the serialled numbers as suggested by Mr.
Francis, and would ask that you consider that we are trying to
expand our operations and that we have leased and will be
leasing equipment which will be used nationally at this time,
and hopefully, internationally in the near future.  It was with
this in mind that Mr. Francis made his recommendation that we
use an accepted standard of identification on our equipment,
a position which I endorse.
Your further comments are requested.

Dear Sir:
Re. Trailer F-I96, Alleged Damage, June 9th, 1978
I have several conflicting versions as to what actually took
place at Nanaimo, B. C. aboard the vessel, Princess of Vancouver." Your letter of June 14th, 1978 states, "that when
Pactow went to unload the boat, the mate brought to the attention of the Pactow driver that our trailer F-115 was backed
up within one inch of our trailer F-I96." Our investigation
of this shows that the mate was not involved at all. Mr. R.
Dahlgren, Safeway driver at Nanaimo, states that it was one
of the Johnston Terminals drivers who brought this to his attention and stood by while he unloaded it. The mate was not
informed of any damage until Mr, Dahlgren was ready to pull
the unit away from the dockside. What part Pactow Transport
actually played in-this is uncertain, but Mr. Dahlgren is
not able to supply us with the J. T. L. driver's name at
this point.
