SALE OF LIQUOR IN ALASKAN WATERS - TEV "PRINCESS PATRICIA"
Each year your office arranges for the Alaska liquor licence
permitting the sale of liquor in Alaskan waters on board the
TEV "Princess Patricia." Your File 4629 covers.
We have never paid tax to the State of Alaska on liquor sales,
and in this connection please find photostat of letter received
from Eloise Herrick, Department of Revenue, State of Alaska,
together with pamphlet entitled "Excise Tax on Intoxicating
Liquors."
We do not have anything on file enabling us to reply to Ms.
Herrick historically as to why we have never paid tax on liquor
sales while in Alaskan waters, but we wonder if anything pertaining to our liquor licence obviates the necessity to collect
Alaska liquor tax.
We will appreciate the benefit of your advice in this matter.

Re: Canadian Pacific Limited Report on "THE ECONOMICS OF ROAD
VEHICLES"
This comprehensive report prepared by the Research Department
points out the many variables that can alter the cost of owning
and operating a vehicle. In general, neither the company nor
the employee has control over the variable factors and current
economic conditions are such that costs only increase. In particular, since the report was prepared there have been marked
increases in the cost of gasoline and prime lending rates and
announced increases for insurance in the coming year.
Should company policy be altered from the present leased-vehicle
basis to employee ownership, it appears essential that the level
of reimbursement be under constant review so that they will
match the costs incurred without penalizing the employee.
In regard to the report's recommendations that the employee
could be reimbursed for mileage between home and office for
employee-owned vehicles and that "it is generally in the company's interest when acquiring vehicles for Company service
to permit the personal use of them," it should be noted that
there have been several recent test cases that have resulted
in serious income tax considerations for the employee in such
situations. The Department of Revenue has been successful in
having a good portion of the cost of the vehicle charged to
the employee's income as a taxable benefit and appears ready
to follow up with more prosecutions in the near future.
.../2
)Form 102-R Mr. P.I, Georges
-2-
August 23rd, 1978
As Mr. Swanson points out in his letter, there appears to be increasing resistance on the part of employees to provide vehicles
for business use. No doubt this stems from the fact that capital
costs, maintenance costs, insurance costs, etc. must be paid "up
front" in cash or on credit, while reimbursement occurs over an
extended period. If it is necessary for the employee to finance
an automobile (and related costs) which is intended to be used
primarily or wholly for business, it severely restricts his line
of credit and thereby reduces his flexibility in this area should
other major purchases be required for his home.
In summary, the entire subject of leased vs employee-owned vehicles
is a most complicated area worthy of careful research, with some
consideration given to those areas that are outside the classification of "dollar economics" before any changes are implemented.

While I am convinced the volume discount encouraged Haida to
ship additional trailers on the weekend barge, we have to realize that his traffic has been extremely heavy the past month
due to the salmon season, and no doubt this would have reflected
in our carryings.
It is anticipated the new road will be passable this fall,
and we must come to a decision with respect to Crown Zellerbach. In view of the possibility of a third paper machine
being placed into production, careful consideration will have
to be given to basis that service will be iWerred to Crown.
We should discuss at' first opportunity.   '

Canadian Pacific NEWS IN BRIEF
AIR CANADA STRIKE IS CANCELLED
OTTAWA - A national strike by Air Canada pilots was averted Aug. 23 just
six hours before it was scheduled to begin, climaxing a 12-hour meeting
between federal Labor Minister John Munro and representatives of the
airline and its pilots' union. The main stumbling block to a settlement
had been the issue of the merger of the seniority lists between Air
Canada and Nordair pilots. Air Canada President Claude Taylor had said
he couldn't bargain on this issue until the Crown corporation officially
acquired Nordair. But on Aug. 23 he agreed to accept a merged seniority
list if and when the companies are linked.

FARMERS' UNION CRIES SABOTAGE IN RAILWAYS' GRAIN HANDLING
EDMONTON - The National Farmers' Union charged Aug. 22 that western
grain producers have been seriously handicapped by an inefficient transportation system. At News Conferences held in centres across the Prairies, the Union said Canada's economy has suffered because delivery of
grain committed for export sale was behind 1.5 million tons as of July
31. The statement said CP Rail had told the Union it wanted to haul as
much U.S. grain as possible through Canada.

Farmers' Union (NFU) charged Aug. 22.

EDMONTON - A spokesman for Canadian National Railways on Aug. 21 angrily
rejected arguments made by the National Farmers' Union that the railways
were handicapping the shipment of grain to export points. Bill Dewan,
Public Affairs Chief for CN's Mountain Region, called the study "a concerted effort to blacken the reputation of the railways."

GOVERNMENT TRANSPORT POLICIES FACE TIMELY CHALLENGE
VANCOUVER - British Columbia's transport industry is questioning the
value of the growing federal bureaucracy which regulates the sector and
which appears to be doing more harm than good. The major problem is
that so many federal agencies administer policy and regulate air, rail,
trucking and marine services. At the same time, lower-level governments
are beginning to seek a bigger share of decision-making in the field.
The consensus in industry and in the provincial government is the need
for a unified provincial policy on transportation with the creation of
one ministry that can act as an intermediary in labor matters and under
federal jurisdiction.

of transportation and handling for the Grains Group in Ottawa, said Aug.
18 that if the study can effect a 10-per-cent improvement in grain car
utilization the savings would total about $80-million.

NEWFOUNDLAND NEEDS RAILWAY, MOORES ASSERTS
ST. JOHN'S - Premier Frank Moores said Aug. 22 he would view any attempt
to cajole the Newfoundland government into surrendering its constitutional rights to a trans-island railway "as a form of blackmail that's
totally unacceptable."
The Premier was reacting to the main recommendation in a report brought
down a month ago by a federal Royal Commission into transportation in
the province. The commission, headed by Memorial University psychologist Arch Sullivan, suggested the railway is not a viable proposition in
the long run, and the province should trade it off now in return for
federal funds to upgrade the Trans-Canada Highway.
Mr. Moores also announced that he has sent a telegram to Prime Minister
Pierre Trudeau demanding to know Ottawa's position on the railway.

ALGOMA CENTRAL STAYS PROFITABLE WITH TRANSPORT FACILITY EXPANSION
TORONTO - From its beginnings as a rail line hauling iron ore through
the wilderness of the rugged Algoma district to feed the steel mills of
Sault Ste. Marie, Algoma Central Railway has since become deeply involved in the tourist business of Northern Ontario.
Each day passengers, mostly from the United States, mainly Michigan,
Ohio, Wisconsin and a few from Southern Ontario, wait to board the Agawa
Canyon excursion train to witness the area's dramatic landscape.
With its Agawa Canyon trains in summer and snow tours for three months
in winter, its recreational lands leased out as cottage sites, and hunting and fishing camps along its right-of-way, the railway has become the
core of the tourist industry in the Algoma district, according to Stanley
Black, vice-president of the company's rail division, which is now also
involved in shipping, trucking and real estate.
"Although we don't make too much money at it, if we ever stopped it
would spell the end of the tourist trade in the area," he said. The
daily excursion trains operate from May to mid-October. Since the start
on May 27 to the end of June, the railway had carried 14,000 passengers,
averaging about 800 passengers a day. As the season progresses this
grows to about 1,200 daily. By September, the number of passengers
doubles to 2,400 daily, requiring two trains, each consisting of 22
coaches and two dining cars.
Last year the railway carried a total of 108,000 passengers on tours and
regular service, up from 103,000 a year earlier. For years the railway operated primarily as a wilderness railway to
transport iron ore from the Algoma Steel Corp. Ltd. mines at Wawa to
steel plants at Sault Ste. Marie. It also moved forest products out of
Northern Ontario.
In recent years it has become a diversified transportation company
moving cargo by water, rail and road and operating a fleet of 11 dry
bulk cargo vessels on the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway.
Algoma Central has developed a real estate complex on lands it owns on
the waterfront in downtown Sault Ste. Marie including a hotel, a shopping mall, an office building, and a senior citizens' home. Algoma
Central also owns about 850,000 acres of land and mineral and timber
rights in the region.
The company has been showing a profit for the past decade. Profit in
1977 was $7.1-mi 11 ion, compared with $4.1-mi 11 ion in 1976.
And this year with Algoma's steel production well ahead of last year and
increased movement of forest products, freight revenue ton-miles are up
11 per cent for the January to May period. Movement of mining products
rose 10 per cent, forestry 37 per cent and manufacturing products and
other commodities 10 per cent.

* * * GRAIN TRANSPORT CHANGES
WINNIPEG - The Canadian Wheat Board will again push the country's grain
transportation system to its limits in the 1978-79 crop year, says a
senior transportation official of the Board. Mike Martin, director of
western grain transportation, said in an interview that the board "learned something from last year and will make changes accordingly. And we
will push the grain system to equal or better the shipping performance
of last year."
He said Manitoba should particularly benefit from this year's shipping
program which will include the following features:
-- A compromise between the traditional quota policy of large bushels
for long periods of time, and last year's policy of small, but more
frequent quotas.
-- INSTEAD of a gradual buildup of grain movement from August to December, as was the case last year, a continuation of the high July
shipping volumes into August, through to December and the new
calendar year.
-- AN attempt to push as much Manitoba grain in these first five months
as is possible in the context of sales and large supplies. "We
tried it one way last year and will try to make improvements this
year."

RAIL SIDINGS COSTS MAY BE SHARED
WINNIPEG - The Canadian Transport Commission is expected to rule this
month on CNR's bid to throw the switch on passing-track costs, shunting
them over to grain elevator companies.
A CTC spokesman said the commission asked CNR to submit reasons for
advising grain handling companies that they would have to build extra
siding trackage wherever elevators were located on main lines.
He said it was the CTC's job as a regulatory body to determine the
justification of asking users to pay for such rail installations, and
had no comment on a rumored possible compromise arrangement of shared
costs.
The Free Press has learned from an Ottawa source of a possible compromise plan for combined railway-grain company-government funding on the
new sidings designed to allow through trains to pass unhindered. Reasons for such a possibility included the fact that elevator companies
were already heavily committed to new elevator construction because of
lost rail rights through branchline abandonment.

* * * WHITE PASS AND YUKON LETS NINE EXECUTIVES GO
VANCOUVER - Financially-troubled White Pass & Yukon Corp. Ltd. on Aug.
12 dismissed nine senior executives.
A company statement says a reorganization "has resulted in the elimination of nine senior managerial positions in the company's corporate
office in Vancouver."
White Pass for the six months ended June 30 had a loss of $49,000, or 12
cents a share, compared with a profit of $597,000, or 22 cents a share,
for the same period last year.
At the time the loss was announced, White Pass said "disappointing results in our Yukon and Alaska trucking operations, combined with high
maintenance costs of locomotives and track in our rail operations, were
the major reasons for the decline in earnings."
A company statement says "the reduction in the size of the Vancouver
office has been necessitated by a significant decline in revenue due to
the loss of the Cassiar Asbestos Corporation tonnage and by the decision
to locate the company's senior operating managers in Whitehorse."
Cassiar closed its Clinton Creek mine in the Yukon earlier this year and
also announced it would ship the Cassiar mine production through the
Port of Stewart, dramatically reducing White Pass revenues.

CANADA IN TRANSIT
BRIST0N, Conn. - Across the sprawling expanse of Canada, there are only
a few pockets of population dense enough to support mass transit systems.
As Canada's cities have studied urban transportation alternatives and
weighed their merits, what is significant is that, in many cases, the
choice has been fixed guideway.
The pioneer was Toronto, which in 1954 opened the first 4.6 miles of the
Yonge Street subway. In 1966, Montreal inaugurated service on 13.7
miles of subway, but where Toronto had picked steel-wheeled vehicles,
Montreal decided to run rubber-tired cars. Both systems are still
growing.
Now two cities in western Canada, Calgary and Edmonton, Alta., have gone
the fixed-guideway route, and Vancouver, on the West Coast, is giving it
consideration. Compared with the 2.8-million populations of both the
metropolitan Toronto and Montreal areas, metro Calgary has only 470,000
and metro Edmonton 550,000, but both are large enough to present people-
moving problems. Feeling they needed more capacity than buses would
provide but believing heavy rail provided too much capacity, Calgary and
Edmonton both opted for light rail lines.

A VIA Rail spokesman said the price to be paid for the locomotives and
coaches of CP Rail will be made known later. The VIA Rail spokesman
said the company is in the final stages of negotiating operating contracts with the two railway companies that will transfer full responsibility for passenger services to VIA with the railways operating the
equipment under contract with the Crown corporation. The spokesman said
the inauguration of new transcontinental services authorized by the
Canadian Transport Commission cannot take place until the operating
agreements are signed. The CTC has authorized VIA to operate one train
a day each way on the transcontinental route.

THE 1980s GENERATION
NEW YORK - Compared with the revolutionary jets of the late 1950s and
the awesome jumbos of the early 1970s, the third generation of the early
1980s will seem to bring only evolutionary change: the sleeker-than-to-
day's jumbos but somewhat shorter, smaller and squatter. They will be
quieter, less fuel-thirsty, more automated and efficient to operate.
For the most part, they are also designed to save as much development
money as possible for the planemakers. Since it costs about $2-billion
to design and tool up for an all-new plane and engines, most of the new
generation will be cloned from present models, scaled-down in size and
outfitted with the latest technology. Even so, the cost of producing a
derivation can reach $1-billion; hence, a planemaker must sell between
400 and 500 aircraft to break even.
Recently, McDonnell Douglas decided to drop out of the sales race and
scrapped plans for its new-generation DC-X-200, which would have competed directly with Boeing's 767 in tomorrow's big market for medium-
range, wide-bodied jets. Instead, McDonnell Douglas will concentrate on
a stretched and upgraded version of its long-range DC-10 jumbo.
Barring other dropouts, the new generation will get going in 1981 and
1982, when three manufacturers plan to deliver planes of roughly the
same capacity (197 to 230 passengers) and range (2,300 to 3,680 miles).
They are the Boeing 767, the Airbus A310-200 and the Lockheed LI011-400.
To save weight and fuel, the Boeing and the Airbus will have two engines, the Lockheed "Dash 400" three.
The Airbus A310 is derived from the larger and highly successful A300,
the first twin-engine and wide-bodied jet. The Dash 400 is a slightly
smaller version of the Lockheed TriStar 1011. Lockheed is also experimenting with a long-range model, the Dash 500, which would fly 6,100
miles at one stretch.

BOEING/NASA QSRA
Boeing hopes to adapt this 93 ft.
NASA short-takeoff and -landing
plane for commercial use in the mid-
1980s. Exact specifications are
unknown, but, like the British 146-
200, it will carry small loads over
relatively short ranges between city
centers. 11
Among the U.S. planemakers, only Boeing, which has made record profits
on its 727s, had the financial strength to design a totally new jet.
Following its successful practice of creating entire families of aircraft with interchangeable parts, Boeing now has three new-generation
planes in various stages of development: the 757, 767 and 777. All bear
a striking resemblance -- long "supercritical" wings and huge bypass
engines -- but the 757 is a narrow-bodied aircraft, designed to replace
the DC-9 and 727 on short and medium routes. The 767 and 777 are virtually identical wide bodies, except that the latter has three engines.
For smaller loads (80 to 109 passengers) and shorter hops (100 to 200
miles), the nationalized British Aerospace plans to roll out its four-
engine Model 146-200 in 1982. A few years later, Boeing hopes to introduce a far more advanced short-haul plane; it will be adapted from
the QSRA (for Quiet Short Haul Research Airplane), which Boeing developed for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The plane
will be ideal for commuters, since it can take off and land on extremely
short runways. Reason: its four engines mounted atop the wing blow
exhaust over the upper surface, creating phenomenal lift.
The first new-generation plane that most Americans will fly will be the
767. Passengers may be disappointed that its interior is not a radical
improvement over today's jets. True, a few creature comforts will be
better. Six-footers will not risk cracking their heads on the door
frames; the entry, at 6 ft. 2 in., will be two-inches higher than the
doorway of today's 707s or 727s. For passengers who are accustomed to
high-density seating, the 767's economy section will convey a sense of
spaciousness, because the seats will be arranged in a two-three-two configuration and divided by two aisles.
Unfortunately, the impression of roominess is largely illusionary. The
ceiling will be U-in. lower than today's 707s and 727s, and economy-
class seats will be only 18-in. wide, or 2.4 in.-less than today's already cramped accommodations. Even narrower.will be the seats in an
eight-abreast charter configuration — only 16-in. across. Knee room
will be marginally improved because seat backs will be thinner and the
lower part of the seat in front will curve inward.
The interiors of the Airbus A310 and Lockheed Dash 400 will be similar
to the 767. In the Airbus, economy seating will be arranged in a two-
four-two configuration; the Dash 400 will use nine-abreast seating with
two aisles.
Despite the cramped quarters, the new planes should delight those passengers who relish the sensation of flying. They will lift off more easily, climb effortlessly and cruise quietly through the skies at an average 550 m.p.h. The planes will be much more stable at lower speeds than
today's jets, and landings will be safer.
Nearly everything that will qualify the planes to be called a new generation is hidden from view or discernible only by the expert eye. Some
of the biggest improvements are in the cockpit. After takeoff, the
flight can be fully automated, should the captain so choose. A computer 12
back on the ground in the airline command center will reckon the entire
flight plan and feed the instructions for course headings, throttle settings, climbs, descents and the like into three smaller computers aboard
the aircraft.
The onboard computers will compile and analyze the details of the plane's
performance and present the crew with up-to-the-minisecond accounts of
engine efficiency, fuel consumption, progress of flight and miles to
destination. Flight crew members will become monitors of the automated
systems, and the new instrument panels are designed to help them keep a
constant watch on performance. They no longer will have to rely on a
clutter of spinning indicators or round dials. Information will be displayed, simply and concisely, on digital read-outs, vertical scales and
bright, television-style screens.  A much-improved radar will display
the weather ahead in living color (red for thunderstorms, yellow for
light rain, green for smooth air). An indicator will give the distance
and flying time to bad weather.
If a malfunction occurs in any of the systems, a buzzer will alert the
crew, who will look at a special command panel known as the enunciator.
It will provide an instant indication of where the trouble is. The
flight crew will have another helper: the EADI (for Electronic Attitude
and Direction Indicator). On a cathode tube, which looks like a small
TV screen, the image of the plane will be portrayed. As the craft maneuvers in flight, the tube will show its movements -- its banks, climb,
heading and descent. As the plane approaches the airport, EADI will
tell the pilot if he is on course, and can even display a preprogrammed
diagram of the runway. The new generation will be equipped with automatic systems for landing in all weatherv
Though the avionic advances are impressive, the most significant improvements have been made in the two major elements whose interaction causes
a plane to fly: engine and wing.
Because of metallurgical advances and more*efficient design, the new engines are lighter and quieter and burn six-per-cent to seven-per-cent
less kerosene fuel than those in current jets. These new engines, which
are refinements of existing models, produce thrust in two ways. First,
they suck huge amounts of air into a compressor section and eject it
under high pressure into the combustion chamber, or "hot throat." There
it is mixed with kerosene spray and ignited, reaching a temperature of
2400 degree F. This explosion spews back to turn a turbine, and then
the exhaust exits as thrust. Second, the turbine turns a shaft to a big
multibladed fan at the front of the engine. The fan functions like an
old-style propeller and shoves back tons of air for additional thrust.
Today's jet wings have one major drawback: they create too much drag in
relation to the lift they generate. Their blunt leading edges and
curved upper surfaces cause the air flow to break away too soon from the
wing, creating bubbles and turbulence that retard speed. The solution:
the new supercritical wing, so named because it cuts through the air in
such a way that it creates less turbulence. Developed by NASA, it is
somewhat similar in shape to a glider wing and achieves more lift by
being flatter on top and longer. It also has a slight downward slant 13
at the trailing edge that causes the air in motion to adhere to the wing
surface longer, thus making a smoother passage. The superiority of the
supercritical design has been known for years. But engineers could not
apply it to the jets until stronger, more durable metals were developed
that could withstand the great stress to which the wings are subjected.
The fuselage of the new generation refutes the old notion that sleek
lines lead to high performance. In the new aerodynamic designs, bulky
is beautiful. The blunt nose creates huge waves, but because of smoother aircraft skins, the air flow is uniform around the fuselage. Further
in the future, the planemakers may use a NASA-developed system of grooving the front part of the fuselage to reduce drag. NASA also has proved
that a "wavy," or "washboard," pattern at the rear diminishes drag-
inducing turbulence. Less drag means lower fuel consumption.
No new supersonic is being developed at present. The Anglo-French
Concorde, of which ten are now flying, is such a fuel-gulping money-
loser that no more are on order and five have been left unsold. NASA
and U.S. planemakers are still conducting supersonic research on a
modest scale, but an American SST is not expected before the 1990s, and
then only if the world economy is buoyant.
The most promising research is retrogressive. United Technologies is
developing a "prop fan" -- an eight-blade propeller driven by a jet
engine. The blades look like warped boomerangs. They are more efficient for subsonic aircraft than the fan-jet engines planned for the
1980s; on flights of up to 1,500 miles, the prop fan would be 40-percent more fuel economical, since a propeller is more efficient than jet
thrust during climb-outs and letdowns.. . Even so, the boomerang has a
problem: excessive noise. Furthermore, how can airlines lure passengers
back to a prop after they have flown in a jet?

AIR CANADA ALLOWED TO MAKE TWO TAKEOVERS
OTTAWA - Air Canada has been given federal Government approval to complete the takeover of two associated companies by buying the remaining
outstanding common shares owned by Canadian National Realty Ltd. of
Montreal.
The two companies are Airline Maintenance Building Ltd. and Venturex
Ltd. Airline Maintenance was originally established to build and lease
facilities at Toronto International Airport used by Air Canada for air
cargo handling and other functions. It still operates the facilities.
Venturex was established to enable Air Canada to participate in the new
ABC charter market more than five year ago. The company still operates
a tour business and travel bureaus.
An Air Canada spokesman said CN Realty had originally invested in the
two companies using funds advanced by Air Canada. The takeover of the
two companies was made possible by recent changes to Air Canada's federal legislation. 14
Another federal Cabinet decision approving the purchase by the federal
air carrier of three 10-year-old 727-100C jet aircraft from United Airlines reveals that the purchase is the first step in Air Canada's plans
to expand its small package delivery service.
In addition to the existing Airvelope service, which covers door-to-door
delivery to major Canadian cities served by Air Canada for packages
weighing up to two pounds, the airline plans to offer a North American-
wide delivery service for packages between one and 70 pounds. It is
also studying the feasibility of extending the service to European
destinations it serves.

WARDAIR SUFFERS LOSS
CALGARY - Wardair International Ltd. of Edmonton experienced a consolidated net loss of $2,475»802 in the first six months this year, compared
with a profit of $2,092,318 during the same period last year, the
company announced Aug. 8.
In a news statement, Wardair blamed "this disappointing and unfavorable
performance" on scheduled airlines being allowed to offer charter level
fares in "a virtually non-regulated environment. On the other hand,
Wardair is forced to operate under stringent regulatory restrictions
that prevent us from competing in the market with scheduled charter-type
operations."
The company said that, after providing for dividends on preferred shares,
the loss on each common share was 80 cents compared with a profit of 59
cents a common share in the first six months of 1977. While revenues
were $66,078,580 for the period compared with $54,564,454 for the same
period in 1977, they were below the company's forecast.

105-BILLI0N-D0LLAR JETLINER SWEEPSTAKES
WASHINGTON - Like players around a Monopoly board, the world's aircraft
manufacturers are staking claims on a $105-billion market for commercial
planes that could develop by 1990.
With this handful of companies, however, no game is being played. All
are mortgaging their futures on a bet that air travel will continue to
grow steadily during the next decade, and that airlines can amass the
enormous amounts of money needed to purchase the planes now being developed.
For the industry as a whole, the wager appears relatively safe. The
first generation of jetliners -- the Boeing 707s, McDonnell Douglas DC-
8s and early versions of the 727s, 737s. and DC-9s — is aging and
approaching the time for replacement. New noise-control regulations by
the federal government, to be fully in effect by 1985, will hasten retirement for many of those older aircraft. And the recent record-
setting level of air travel puts pressure on airlines to add extra seat
capacity. However, the field is a crowded one, involving not only
Boeing, McDonnell Douglas and Lockheed in the U.S., but-a consortium of
European aircraft makers, known as Airbus Industrie. So competition for
sales is fierce, particularly in the new market opening up for wide-
bodied, subsonic aircraft seating between 160 and 230 passengers -- a
gap that no aircraft presently fills. "What happens in the next two or
three years," predicts one aerospace-industry expert, "will freeze the
manufacturing picture for the rest of the century."

up to 50 pounds, and in some cases 100 pounds and less -- a category
traditionally left to such express shippers as Canadian National Railways and CP Transport.
The cross-Canada growth of such major courier firms as BDC Ltd., Puro-
lator Courier Ltd., and Loomis Courier Services Ltd. -- all of whom operate in Regina -- is reflected in their annual revenue increases, which
have ranged between 15 and 20 per cent for each of the last five years.
More direct evidence of their growth is provided by the number of messenger vehicles whipping around Regina streets. But perhaps equally
significant to the growth of the messenger industry is its stepped-up
involvement in intercity deliveries by air and road. And while these
firms might once have been geared mainly toward the envelope and light
delivery field, they seem increasingly willing to carry heavier items on
scheduled runs.
Peter Glendinning, highway traffic board chairman, sees the couriers as
providing a valuable service, particularly to smaller communities, an 17
area of traditional concern to the board. Mr. Glendinning goes so far
as to suggest the courier may be able to provide a service edge over
truckers in the handling of lighter items. However, at least one major
trucker, Motorways, has signalled its intent to pay more attention to
the smaller parcel field.

BUSES WITH STYLE
TORONTO- There is a new option in bus travel, as the first generation of
executive-oriented express bus services take to the road, linking major
commercial and government centres within 300 miles of each other. And
if the executive services succeed, they could change the patterns of
business travel in the lucrative short runs between major cities in
Canada.
The improved services offer such frills as guaranteed reservations,
hostess service, airline-style seats with fold-down tables and on one
line, a telephone link for doing business from the bus.
Already operating are Montreal-based Voyageur Inc.'s Le Grand Express
running the 186 miles between Montreal and Quebec City, and Toronto-
based Gray Coach Lines Ltd.'s Hostess Express, which links Toronto and
Sudbury (241 miles) and Toronto and North Bay (207 miles). Another
company trying to crack the executive bus market, Diversified Transportation Ltd. of Calgary, has received a licence to operate an executive service on the 186-mile Calgary-Edmonton route. And Voyageur plans
a second executive service for the 121-mile Ottawa-Montreal corridor.

RESEARCH
FINGERTIP INFORMATION VIDEOTEX'S PROMISE
OTTAWA - Imagine being able to dial up the score of last night's ball
game, tomorrow's weather forecast, or almost any other kind of information.
Research scientists at the Communications Research Centre of the federal
department of communications are making this dream a reality. A system
designed by the centre's research team was unveiled recently that
showed the technological way has been cleared to establish what many
have called "the wired city."
The system, called Videotex, consists of a main computer bank and a series of computer terminals. The system can serve an office, a city, an
entire country and can even be plugged into similar systems around the
world. 18
The concept of a central computer clearing-house for all information
isn't new, but the advanced technology in micro-circuitry needed to make
the system work certainly is, said assistant deputy minister Doug Park-
hill of the research and communications department.
Eventually every  homeowner will be able to afford an input terminal with
a keyboard that can be hooked up to a modified television set. For a
users' fee the homeowners would be able to dial the evening news,
weather and sports; consult the encyclopedia, take a good look at a map
of anywhere in the world, and wind up the evening with a quick look at a
full-color section of comics.
The Videotex system would also be a great use to the business world.
Architects would be able to send detailed plans to each other, across
the city or across the country, and up-to-the-minute business figures
would be available at the punch of a key-board. The users' terminals
would be wired into central computer information banks through telephone-like cables.
Such a system could see the introduction of electronic newspapers, electronic mail and even electronic publishing.

THREE COMPANIES TO TEST TWO-WAY VIDEO DATA SYSTEM
MONTREAL - Bell Canada, and two Toronto-based companies, Southam Press
Ltd. and Torstar Corp., announced Aug. 17 the three companies are co-operating on a pilot demonstration system for a two-way information service using telephone lines and television sets.
A joint statement said the pilot system, expected to be operational
early in 1979, is the first step in a program to develop a new family of
communication services, known generically as Videotex, for home and
office use.
Subscribers to Videotex will use the telephone network to have access to
data bases for news, entertainment, advertising and other information,
which will be displayed in color on television screens.
Bell, Southham and Torstar have been involved in designing information-
retrieval systems for several years, the statement said.
Videotex is claimed to effectively extend the capabilities of existing
telephone networks for information handling and communications for both
residential and commercial users.

ECONOMICS
ANOTHER CHANCE FOR FREE TRADE
OTTAWA - The federal Government, obsessed with short-term pre-election
considerations, will find it easy enough to ignore a report released
this month by the Senate foreign affairs committee. It is entitled
Canada's Trade Relations with the United States.
The committee report should not be ignored. It is a tightly-reasoned,
well-argued exposition of the case for a free-trade relationship with
the U.S. The issues raised are going to have to be faced eventually;
the sooner, probably the better. Whatever steps the government may
devise to improve Canada's immediate economic position, the committee's
report makes clear they will be a stopgap.
The harsh reality is that Canadian industry has been losing ground competitively with the U.S. and with the world. We've allowed our indust-
tial wage rates to move ahead of those across the border, while our
manufacturing productivity remains about 20-per-cent below that of the
U.S.
With the U.S. itself, the centre of population has been moving southward
and westward -- away from the Canadian border and areas where Canadian
industry is best able to compete. For these and other reasons there has
been a disturbing shift of manufacturing capacity to the U.S. which if
unchecked could, according to the committee, lead to the eventual de-
industrialization of Canada.
The committee lays it on the line: Canada lacks natural economic defences, it has a basically-inefficient industrial structure with truncated
branch plants producing too large a range of goods with too short production runs for too small a market.
A free-trade area would force Canadian industry to be competitive or
close down. Tough medicine. But the committee recognizes, as have
other major studies of the same problem, that a 10-year transitional
period would be necessary, and that government assistance would be required to help Canadian industry adjust.

CLOSER U.S. TIES SEEN AS ECONOMIC ILLS CURE
CALGARY - Canada could find a remedy for its most acute economic ills by
opting for closer bilateral relations with the United States, according
to Carl Beigie, president of the C. D. Howe Research Institute of Montreal .
He said Canada should be opened up on a gradual and predictable basis to
as much fair and effective competition as possible. Initially, the
closer economic ties would be with the United States, but any "mutually
advantageous deal" need not be confined only to that country. 20
In his opinion, Canada's national economic policy, stressing the protection of home industries from outside competition, is outdated and
serves as an obstacle to economic recovery.
He also said there is not enough innovation to improve Canadian technology. Canada, "with a few notable exceptions, produces at the late
stages of the 'product life-cycle', turning out goods that have been
developed and refined elsewhere." Yet it is new advances in technology
that produce the early stages of product life-cycle that provide the
highest returns-on-investment and the highest wages.
Canadian natural resources that until now helped to keep the international balance-of-trade in place "are no longer cheap to produce," and
also face stiff competition abroad, he said.

TELECOMMUNICATIONS
INCREASE IN TELEGRAM RATES ASKED
OTTAWA - CNCP Telecommunications have requested higher rates for telegrams and other communications services between Canada and the United
States, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission
says.
The proposed rates, which would be effective Oct. 1, 1978, include increases ranging from eight to 132 per cent. In addition, the application proposes to reduce the count for the basic message in a night-
letter telegram to 50 from 100 words.
The companies have estimated the increases would provide CN Telecommunications with $60,000 and CP Telecommunications with $40,000 for the
last three months of 1978. For 1979 the increases would total $217,600
and $152,000 respectively. The increases were developed in consultation
with Western Union Telegraph Co. of New York.

SHIPPING
* * *
ON THE RIVER — WHO PAYS?
NEW YORK - Small and antiquated, Lock 26, near Alton, 111., is the great
bottleneck in the Mississippi River tug-and-barge system. For years,
the bargemen have demanded that the Federal government -- charged with
maintaining the nation's waterways -- build a new lock.
But the protest seems likely to backfire: rival railroad interests are
backing legislation that would impose a user tax on the operators to pay
for new construction and maintenance. If the bill passes, it would negate the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, which decreed that inland waters
be "forever free without any tax, impost or duty." More important, the
bargemen would inevitably pass along their costs in higher rates. 21
The tax controversy is rooted in an old struggle between the railroads
and the rivermen. In 1847 President James K. Polk vetoed a rivers-and-
harbors bill, arguing against the use of general taxes to pay for river
projects. But a young congressman from a river state, Abraham Lincoln
of Illinois, led a drive that over-rode the veto. These days, the railroad lobby claims, government maintenance amounts to a subsidy equal to
about 30 per cent of the barges' operating costs. The bargemen say
that's just a numbers' game. "The $250-million to $300-million the
government spends on the rail-retirement fund alone is equal to the
entire subsidy we get," said one bargeman.
If the 12-cent tax passes, a towboat will see its annual fuel bill rise
from $1.4-mil1 ion to nearly $2-million -- an added cost that would probably be passed along to shippers and, ultimately, consumers. Even so,
the giant barges would still have a competitive edge on the railroads.
Rates for grain shipped by rail from Minneapolis to St. Louis, for instance, now run about $18 a ton; by barge, the rate is only $6 a ton.

BUSINESS & FINANCE
DOME PAYS $97-MILLI0N TO BECOME LARGEST SHAREHOLDER IN TCPL
TORONTO - Dome Petroleum Ltd. of Calgary has become the largest single
shareholder in TransCanada PipeLines Ltd. of Toronto with a $97-million
purchase of stock from Canadian Pacific Investments Ltd. of Montreal and
from the pension funds of Canadian Pacific Ltd.
Dome's chairman, J. P. Gallagher, said his company "felt the need for
producer representation in the TransCanada shareholding and on the
board. We felt we were the logical people, as a Canadian company and a
large gas producer."
He said the purchase of 5,277,057 shares, about 13 per cent of Trans-
Canada's shares outstanding, at $18.37 a share, was financed by bank
borrowings. Dome's statement said additional shares may be bought from
time to time, but "the company does not presently intend to add substantially to its holdings."
Announcement of the purchase ends two weeks of speculation about a takeover of TransCanada by a number of companies. TransCanada, whose shares
are widely-held, buys gas in Alberta under long-term contracts and
delivers it to Canadian and U.S. distribution companies along the length
of its eastward route to Montreal. Dome was not among the companies
considered likely to buy into TransCanada because it is engaged in a
wide range of activities and already has a lot of debt on its balance
sheet in comparison with most large producers. But some analysts believe the purchase makes good sense.
First, Dome is a large producer of gas in Alberta and British Columbia
(148 million cubic feet a day in 1977), and it has large shutin reserves
and participation in some of the more promising new exploration plays
such as Elmworth. Second, the company has considerable pipeline experience through operating a gas liquids delivery system that includes the 22
new Cochin pipeline. Third, Dome is known as a company that takes big
risks but also plans carefully and likes to hedge its bets. It is
currently spending hundreds of millions of dollars to find gas or oil in
the Beaufort Sea, and some analysts suggested that management would like
to have more influence in decisions about how supplies in different
areas will be delivered to consumers.
Mr. Gallagher has said that large quantities of gas found in the Beaufort Sea could be delivered to mid-continental markets by a pipeline
directly from the north, but that it might be preferable to liquefy the
gas and ship it to the east coast in tankers. In that case, the much-
talked-about eastward extension of the TransCanada PipeLine might be
used to move some gas westward into the Maritime Provinces and Quebec.

CN'S PENSION TO SPEND $360-MILLI0N FOR SIEBENS
MONTREAL - Canadian National Railways Pension Fund, through a subsidiary, has an agreement to buy Siebens Oil and Gas Ltd. of Calgary for
$360-million.
Through a complicated four-company transaction, the Pension Fund will
sell off to Dome Petroleum Ltd. three-quarters of the Siebens assets.
This will allow Dome, an aggressive oil exploration company currently
operating a high-cost oil search in the Beaufort Sea, to make use of
Siebens holdings for its exploration.
Canadian National Railways Pension Fund announced that through its
wholly-owned subsidiary, Canpar Holdings Ltd., it has approved an agreement and plan of arrangement with Siebens Oil and Gas Ltd. whereby Siebens will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canpar at an effective
price of $38.50 per Siebens common share. CN Pension Fund said the
total cost of the proposed transaction is approximately $360-million.
Canpar has equity capital of $53.5-million and will finance the Siebens
transaction with equity and bank commitments, CN Pension Fund said.
As a further step in the arrangement, Dome Petroleum Ltd., Calgary, said
it has entered into an agreement with Canpar Holdings Ltd., under which
it will acquire "a substantial interest in the assets of Siebens and
will operate all of the assets of Siebens on behalf of Canpar." The
effective date of the agreement is Jan. 3, 1979.
In still another step, Hudson's Bay Co. said it has entered into an
agreement with Dome Petroleum under which it will sell its 34.3-per-cent
share interest in Siebens at an agreed price of $38.50 per Siebens
share. In return for Siebens shares held by Hudson's Bay, Dome Petroleum will issue to Hudson's Bay a new series of Dome preferred shares
having a value of approximately $123-mi11 ion. This transaction is
expected to be completed in January, 1979, Hudson's Bay said.

Attached is a brochure which has been forwarded to me covering

As you are aware, Mr. Cairns and I attended this Conference,
representing the B.C. Coast Steamship Service, in June 1977, and
Mr. Georges represented Coastal Marine Operations.  We all found
this Conference most beneficial in that it reviewed 'the position
that builders, owners and operators held in their respective
fields, regarding Government involvement, including the effect of
excess regulatory legislation.
I would like to attend this Conference again, as I feel, as do
other West Coast marine operators, that attendance and participation in these meetings are beneficial from the standpoint of
gaining an awareness of problems in this industry in Canada, and
in particular, those related to port development and coastal
operations.
In accord with our previous conversation, kindly advise the action

Further to your request to Mr. Meijer for answers to your queries
on costs as shown in catering reports.
You will find attached Mr. Meijer's comments. There is a serious
problem with determining a cost per meal on the "Princess of
Vancouver," as the travelling patrons and crew are served from
the galley. We have looked into this problem in the past in an
effort to arrive at a viable and representative figure, but have
failed. However, if you should have a method of determining same,
Mr. Meijer will be quite willing to assist you in any ..manner.
My other comment is that while we do derive figures with respect to
the cost per meal each month, it would be interesting to know the
experience of other operators here on the Coast.  I am not sure
how this could be determined, but if I could be of any assistance
with my contacts in the operating fields, kindly advise.  One
would have to be very careful to ensure they were comparing "apples
with apples."   «
Should you have any further questions kindly advise.
Attached for your information is the report for 1978.

To    Memorandum
Mr. V. Jones
On reviewing the Charter Party covering the lease of the barge,
"Empire 40," it is noted that if we are to exercise our option
with respect to a further six-month lease of the equipment, it
must be done 30 days prior to expiry of the current six-month
lease.
Accordingly, this indicates that we must advise Empire Tug Boats
Ltd. and McKenzie Barge & Marine Ways Ltd. of our intent.
<
Assuming that we would be looking for an extension, I "would suggest
that a new agreement be drawn up incorporating the suggestions of
Mr. W.F. Murray as listed in his letter to me dated 25 April 1978.
Of course, the feasibility of extending this lease lies with the
traffic requirements of marketing and sales, and thus your advice
is sought.

Dear Hugh: .
I am in receipt of your letter of 16 August 1978. I will
make necessary arrangements regarding handling of baggage
for your group.
Regarding group fares, requirements are regular passenger
fares one way, $4 per adult. To qualify for a group rate
of $3 per person, a group must consist of minimum 25 adults.
Another thought that comes to mind is if any of your clients
are senior citizens (65 and over), they are eligible for
a one-way fare of $2 each.
Hope this information will be useful to you. Looking
forward to seeing you when you sail to Alaska.

This is further to our conversation regarding costs incurred for
the overhaul of the "Northland Fury" currently under way. 'F
The attached copy of memorandum from Mr. King is self-explanatory,
and while it is impossible to provide a firm figure for all .
items listed in the penultimate paragraph of his memorandum, it
is expected that the additional cost will not exceed $4,000;
thus, a total of approximately $10,000 will be expended.

T. King respecting repairs
I have reviewed the attached memorandum with Mr. King and have
recommended that he should proceed with the docking of the "Warrior"
on the 28 August to complete repairs to the propulsion equipment,
Kort nozzle, etc., as outlined in Paragraph 3.
While it is estimated that the costs for this work would be approximately $3,000 to $4,000, these costs would be increased depending
on the shaft and steadiment bearing. '
I recommend that at this time minimum repairs to the steel work
should be carried out, but that any work required to make the
vessel seaworthy should be completed.  Consideration will be given
to fitting of keel coolers to improve the engine coolant and
eliminate any further problems with engine overheating, etc.
However, this project will not be undertaken at this time, and
should we wish to proceed, you will be advised.
Other matters of an operational nature outlined in Mr. King's

Attention:  W.F. Murray, Esq.
At time of takeover by CP Rail-BCCS of the Northland group of
companies, it was assumed that the parcel of land between Northland Dock and Terminal Dock would be available to us for the
storage of trailers, as had been the practice in the past.  This
water lot had been filled in by Northland over a number of years
to create a holding area for trucks and trailers.
On 19 July last, our Messrs. Cairns and Aitken were called to a
meeting by Mr. Roy McRae, Corporate Planning and Development,
Empire Stevedoring Co., Vancouver, to discuss this lot, as they
stated themselves as lease-holders of same.  Apparently, in the
past, they never bothered Northland regarding remuneration for
use of the area, but recently executed a lease in Nanaimo from
Marathon Realty, been charged market rate, and came to the conclusion they should assess CP Rail for usage of the land in
question.
Empire are looking to CP Rail-BCCS for the land taxes on the
area concerned and the water lot, plus a pro-rated amount of
their total properties tax, such charges to be retroactive to
1 January 1978.
Your advice as to our position in this matter would be appreciated,
and Mr. Aitken of this office, phone 3133, or 255-3535, will be
pleased to assist you if required.
One point I would like to make is that I believe Empire do not
have a lease on this property from the National Harbours Board,
and that within the terms of land use under National Harbours
Board policy, they are prohibited from assessing rent to third
parties in such instances.

1. Remove refrigeration units from #2400 and #2402 trailers
and attach to #2600 and #2601. No. 2400 and #2402 trailers
are in a dilapidated state in both condition and structure.
Cost of this changeover would be in the region of $500 to

4. We have at present as supplied by 'T.I.P.* two mounted tires

The suggestion from Kitimat is to increase this amount of

Attention: Mr. F.W. Barham
Gentlemen:
I have made an extensive investigation regarding the circumstances surrounding alleged damage to "Gil Flex" trailer
14760 and results do not compare with claims made in your
letter of July 5th, 1978.
The duty officer reports that at no time has he jumped on
the running board of a moving unit and that neither he nor
the deckhands recall any such occurrence as stated in your
letter. Further, he reports that since he is said to have
been present at the time the alleged incident took place,
it is reasonable to suppose the driver would bring this to
his attention, and the damage would be inspected and reported.
The only report that seems to have been made is by Mr. J.
Waller and that was to the Assistant Wharfinger after the
ship sailed.
The mate's contention that alleged damage should be inspected on the spot seems reasonable, and it is also reasonable
to assume one would remember any such incident (such as why
damage vras not inspected and report not made until after ship
sailed), we will be glad to reconsider our position.
Yours truly,
Manager

Attention: Mr. A.C. Hayes
Dear Sir:
This letter is in reference to yours of August 4th, 1978 alleging damage to bags of feed on trailer ICX 539»
Our investigation to date has not resulted in any information
that would suggest the damage occurred while in our care and
custody. It seems reasonable to assume that damaged bags of
feed would leave traces of spillage wherever the unit is parked,
but we cannot confirm this occurrence. It also seems reasonable to assume that if feed had escaped from the bags that
your driver would have noted this prior to removal from our
lot.
Since we have no record of either of the above having occurred,
we must assume that damage occurred after removal from our
lot. Without evidence to the contrary, your claim for damages
is denied.
Yours very truly,

I have now received a further report from our vessel
concerning damage to your vehicle on July 1, 1978.
While the responsibility for the safety of the vehicle
naturally lies with the driver, we are prepared to take
the attitude that what happened was the result of a
combination of driver and directing error.
We are, therefore, prepared to pay half the cost of
damage repairs, not to exceed half the amount of $202.22
quoted, when we receive a copy of the receipted bill.
Kindly advise if you are in agreement.

Please refer to our letter of 21 July, File T-78-99, re your
concern about the handling of passengers at Pier A-3 site, and
in particular with respect to automobile parking.
It is the consensus of opinion that automobile parking should
not be permitted parallel to railway tracks south side of road;
however, we feel this area could be utilized for passenger dropoffs and pick-ups, and provided you are in agreement we would
erect signs indicating parking of 15 minutes for this purpose.
As cars would not be in the area at times other than ship arrivals
and departures, vehicles would be towed away at any other time.
Would appreciate your concurrence or otherwise.

Dear Mr. Portigal:
With reference to your form letter of July 6, 1978, addressed
to Northern Dock and Warehouse, Kitimat, B.C., requesting a
copy of the collective agreement presently in effect between
Northern Dock and Warehouse and the United Steelworkers of
America, Local 6611.
Effective January 1, 1978, B.C. Coast Steamship Service of
C.P. Rail, leased the operation of Northland Navigation and
as the last agreement signed between the two parties referred
to is still in effect, agreement does not exist between this
Company and the United Steelworkers of America.
It occurs to us that you are asking for the copy of the new
agreement but will you please advise if you have in your
possession the agreement that runs from November 1, 1976, to
October 31, 1978, and, if not, same will be forwarded to you.

Further to your letter of 13 July on the subject of "Locker

It is the consensus of opinion that building a special box
as suggested would not rectify the situation about which you have
written.
It would appear if the present method of handling this type of
cargo is continued, with proper advice to those concerned, no
problem will occur with regard to theft or break-in.  It seems
in the instance about which you are concerned, there was a breakdown in communication and those concerned are being advised on

From  r.r. Reid
T°  Mr. H.S. Harriman
Manager, Revenue Accounting
Montreal, Que.
At the commencement of the 1978 Alaska cruise season planning, it
was agreed that all group operators familiar with our operation
would be accorded the same privileges extended to them in the past,
making remittance by Canadian bank draft, or to continue to allow
them premium on U.S. remittances.
Inadvertently, our Alaska Reservation Desk overlooked this fact,
although knowledgeable of it in connection with Travel and Transport
July 26th tour sponsored by a company who has had business dealings
with us for several years past.
To ensure continued good relations with this company in the event
that we remain in the Alaska cruise business, I have accordingly
authorized our Reservation Desk to allow Canadian equivalent in
computing total costs of their tour for two U.S. cheques received
June 8th against which BCS 17 No. 02863 was issued in the amount
of $1700.00 U.S., allowing $187.00 premium on $1700.00 U.S. received,  and July 7th cheque against which BCS 17 No. 03110 was
issued, allowing $330.00 U.S. for $3000.00 U.S. received, for a
total of $517.00 credit on $4700.00 U.S. received.
As Vancouver Wharf Ticket Office will be short the amount of
$517.00 against total ticket issuance, I am therefore requesting
clearance of this amount for the reasons given, and will appreciate
if you will arrange clearance for Vancouver Wharf Ticket Office.

Our senior reservation representatives have been attempting to

incorrect premium allowance computed by your office.  As has been
explained in our correspondence, the exchange rate in effect in
this office is that which is advised by Vice-President, Finance,

reservations was 11%.
I regret the necessity of writing to you again; however, as we
have not had an acknowledgment of our request for payment, and
as several phone calls have been made to your office concerning
same, our Company auditors have now insisted on payment being
arranged immediately following their annual audit.  Therefore,
I must request payment by return mail, failing which I am obliged

EMERGENCY MUSTER LIST - "PRINCESS OF VANCOUVER"
Dear Sir:
Attached is the Emergency Muster and Abandon Ship List for our
vessel "Princess of Vancouver," which incorporates changes
suggested by your Mr. B. Johnson in joint discussions in my
office, week of 24 July 1978.
By way of explanation the general format has been developed
over the years to reflect the ratio of crew to positions needed
to safely cope with all supposed eventualities in the event of
mishap.
The "Emergency Muster Stations" portion of the list brings all
crew members to specific positions immediately, in readiness
for dealing with whatever emergency may be identified.  At this
point it is assumed the decision to abandon ship has not been
made.
In regard to positions taken for directing passengers to Muster
Stations, it will be noted two persons have been allocated each
duty, where in fact, only one is required; this is to compensate
for crew fluctuation.
In the "Note" it can be seen that those crew members not allocated
a specific duty are to report to either the Chief Engineer or at
the Emergency Equipment Locker, and are therefore available for
additional support as may be required; i.e., supplement the fire
party if need be.
• - •  •  *  •  •  *- . - 2 -
In summary, the Emergency Muster duties are set up for the minimal
number of persons on board at any given time, and the Abandon Ship
Crews are structured to ensure each crew member has an identified
means of leaving the ship.
During recent months, Steamship Inspectors have made suggestions
for changing this Muster List, and while we are not averse to
constructive suggestions, it is felt this format is suitable for
the requirements of the "Princess of Vancouver," and that continued changes create an atmosphere of confusion and uncertainty
amongst crew members.  It is therefore requested the attached
Emergency Muster and Abandon Ship format be approved in its
present form.
Yours very truly.

Jo  Mr. P.I. Georges
With respect to the mishap of the "Princess Patricia" at Wrangell
4 July, I have looked into all aspects and circumstances relating
to the incident and find no evidence of carelessness or misconduct,
but rather an unfortunate miscalculation of tidal effect. To determine tidal set in the final approach' to any dock is a calculated
risk at least, but with respect to Wrangell, the unpredictable
tidal effect when coming alongside has always been a problem for
our Masters.
In this instance had the dock not been previously damaged perhaps
the setting down of the "Patricia" would not have resulted in
the"hull!damage sustained, this of course is only conjecture.
Capt. Heater is, as you know, one of our more capable Masters,
hence his appointment to "Patriciay" and I do not feel anything
is to be gained by disciplinary action.
I have spoken at length with Capt. Heater concerning this matter
and am satisfied his personal concern for the consequences of
this or any accident weighs heavily with his awareness for continued care and caution.

Re:  Roy C. OWENS, 1st Electrician
Due to the fact that Mr. Owens has accumulated considerable
lay days, plus annual vacation to his credit, it will be
necessary for us to extend his time in Company service for
a period of three months.
While Mr. Owens would normally be due to retire on August 1, 1978,
in actual fact he will be on the labour force until August 3, 1978,
only three more days, which was due to the length of voyage of
the "Princess Patricia."
It will be appreciated if you would signify your approval on the
attached copy of this letter and return same to this office as
soon as possible, as it is urgently required by our Pensions
Department in Montreal.

U.S. CONVENTION TAX CURB STAYS
WASHINGTON - Canadian hopes for some fast, fast relief from our painfully sluggish foreign-convention business have taken a sharp nosedive.
A year-long effort to amend a crippling U.S. income-tax law limiting tax
breaks on U.S. conventions held abroad was sidelined last week by the
House Ways & Means Committee. The committee passed its version of a new
tax bill and purposely bypassed any change in the 1976 tax-law section
(602) affecting foreign conventions. The exclusion kills realistic
prospects that relief on the foreign-convention front will form a part
of the 1978 tax-cut bill when it finally passes later this fall.

CROP YEAR GRAIN MOVEMENT OVER HALF-BILLION BUSHELS
WINNIPEG - More than half-a-bi11 ion bushels of grain was moved by CP
Rail in western Canada during the crop year which ended July 31.
The total volume of grain moved in the 12-month period was 25 million
bushels more than CP Rail moved in the previous crop year, according to
preliminary estimates. There had been only two prior crop years in
which the railway moved more than half-a-bi11 ion bushels of western
grain.
The railway delivered 190,977 carloads of grain during the 1977-78 crop
year which ended July 31. This compared with 186,379 cars delivered the
previous crop year. The record years were at the beginning of the decade. CP Rail moved 248,910 cars of western grain in 1971-72 and 241,-
685 cars in 1972-73.
Translating those movements into bushel volumes alters the comparisons
somewhat since the average volume per car has increased annually in
recent years (largely due to the use of an increasing proportion of larger boxcars and hopper cars). The volume of grain moved in 1977-78
exceeded the half-bill ion-bushel mark by a few million bushels. The
1971-72 total was close to 550 million bushels, and a little more than
that was moved the following year in fewer cars.
Commenting on the year, J. W. Malcolm, vice-president of CP Rail's Prairie Region, said the near-record performance was achieved in spite of
several handicaps encountered during the year. "The first was the lack
of ships in the early part of the year. We could have moved much more
grain last fall if the terminal elevators had been able to receive it.
Then came one of the most difficult winters in recent years. Snow
storms blocked lines both on the Prairies and in the mountains. Together with cold weather, this greatly curtailed our operations for many
weeks. In the latter part of the year, when we geared up for the peak
part of the year's movement, we consistently experienced relatively slow
unloadings at the ports."
Mr. Malcolm said these situations were the major factors limiting the
volume of grain that could be moved in the crop year. Although critics
have continued to talk about shortages of rail cars, he said this had
not been a limiting factor. "Adding more cars to the grain fleet would
not have moved any more grain in the last crop year. It would merely
have increased grain storage capacity and, at $40,000 for each 3,000-
bushel car, that would have been expensive storage.
"Future growth will pose new problems for Canada's grain industry and we
should not become complacent," Mr. Malcolm said. But he also suggested
that "a crop year in which producer deliveries were at an all-time high
should indicate a kind of performance that warrants pride, rather than
the criticisms some would make. As always, there was room for improvement, but once again the handling and transportation parts of the grain
industry performed effectively, and at near-record levels."

WINNIPEG - Canada can increase grain exports between 25 per cent and 50

Board projections indicate Canadian exports of about 30,000,000 tonnes
within seven years, compared to a current level of about 21,000,000
tonnes. The Pools urged the federal Government to immediately buy 4,000
new grain hopper cars to enable Canada to meet this potential , in addition to repair of 5,000 existing boxcars to meet short-term rail movement
problems.

of CN pertaining to developments in 1976. At that time Mclntyre Mines
alleges CN by-passed it to negotiate directly with Japanese companies
importing Grande Cache coal to get a modification of the coal price in
order to achieve a freight-rate increase.

* * * STUDY ADVISES END TO NFLD. RAIL
ST. JOHN'S, NfId. - Hovercraft travelling over sea ice, more traction
trailers on a bigger highway and an end to the Newfoundland Railway were
among major components of a $600,000 transportation study report released in St. John's July 24 by Transport Minister Otto Lang.
The report by Dr. A. M. Sullivan of Memorial University, St. John's
businessman Burford Ploughman and Esau Thorns, a former railway labor
leader, covers all aspects of transportation in Newfoundland.
The three, appointed in March, 1977, to carry out the study, split on a
recommendation that the railway be phased out over 10 years. Dr.
Sullivan and Mr. Ploughman said they could see no economic future for
the freight trains that now rattle across the island between St. John's
and Port-aux-Basques, the CN ferry terminal port on the southwest
coast. Mr. Thorns said the railway could regain business lost to trucks
if CN widened the track to standard gauge and improved other aspects of
the service. He said trains are more fuel-efficient than trucks.
Dr. Sullivan and Mr. Ploughman said that money saved by dropping freight
trains -- the passenger service was abandoned in 1969 -- should be spent
in Newfoundland by the federal Government for highway upgrading. The
report says the Trans-Canada Highway across Newfoundland should be upgraded and rebuilt during the next five years with Ottawa paying 90 per
cent of the cost. It says the railway should be operated without change
for the next five years at which time a final decision could be made on
whether it would be abandoned. Meanwhile, governments, CN and unions
would work together to find ways of overcoming the loss of the 3,000
jobs now provided by the railway.
C. William Doody, Newfoundland transportation and communications minister, said his province would not agree to losing the railway unless
reasonable alternatives were offered. Mr. Lang said both the federal
and Newfoundland governments would study the report before making their
positions known on all its recommendations.

REPORT STILL SECRET
EDMONTON - Alberta Transport Minister Hugh Horner says a report critical

The confidential study was prepared by the Western transportation ministers' study group, which includes senior government personnel from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
Mr. Horner said he agreed with much of the report, which said the Hall
Commission proposals might have a negative impact on Western agriculture
production. But the report, which discussed removal of the protective
Crowsnest Pass freight rates, "was not accepted in its entirety" at a
meeting of provincial ministers, Mr. Horner said.

REPORT HITS HALL LIVESTOCK PROPOSALS
EDMONTON - Hall Commission recommendations for beefing up the flagging
Prairie livestock feeding and processing industry should be abandoned,
according to Prairie transportation ministers.
A confidential report leaked to The Journal on the Western transportation ministers' task force says that Justice Emmett Hall's proposals
may have a negative impact on western production.
The Hall Commission proposal called for paying a subsidy on the difference between the Crowsnest Pass (statutory) grain-handling rates and the
actual cost of moving the grain. It would be applied as a transportation subsidy on live animals or meat leaving the Prairies. But the task
force report says that such a subsidy on moving feeder or slaughter
cattle would only increase the number of animals moving to the central
Canadian market. The report says a flood of almost half a million
animals a year is rushing to eastern markets.
The report, prepared by officials from agriculture and transport departments of the three Prairie provinces, says freight rate structures can't
themselves explain this flood of animals to the east.

WINNIPEG - For the second time in two weeks, Transport Minister Otto

Belmont; 62.1 miles on the Miami subdivision between Morris and Somerset; and 42.9 miles on the CN Hartney subdivision between Belmont and
Elgin. The PRAC recommended to the minister that the lines be abandoned by the
end of 1983. Instead, Mr. Lang has announced that a decision will not
be made until the situation is studied further. He said abandonment
would mean a loss of rail service to 20 grain delivery points.

approved preparation of an action area plan in April, and at the same

GRAIN ELEVATORS HAVE LITTLE SPACE LEFT FOR DELIVERIES
SASKATOON - Congestion at grain elevators throughout Saskatchewan, which
has left many farmers unable to deliver their quotas for shipment, will
likely continue during the next crop year, say spokesmen for grain companies operating in the province.
About 80 per cent of the Cargill Grain Company's Saskatchewan elevator
space is filled, W. M. Nielson, Cargill's Western Canada general manager, said July 25. Sixty per cent of the company's elevators across the
country are also full. The filled elevators are primarily in the more
northerly barley-growing regions, he said, with top-grade red spring
wheat moving much better.
The United Grain Growers Ltd. has all 180 elevators in Saskatchewan
congested, said A. R. Depape, manager of the firm's country elevators.
Relief for farmers will depend on how fast the Canadian Wheat Board and
the railways can move existing supplies to export terminals, Mr. Depape
said.

CP RAIL'S LAKE LOUISE SECOND CORRIDOR PLAN APPROVED
OTTAWA - The Canadian Transport Commission Aug. 2 approved a CP Rail
application for authority to construct a 5.5-mile, second main track
between Lake Louise, Alta., and Stephen, B.C., at the Great Divide.
The Railway Transport Committee, which held public hearings in Lake
Louise, May 15-22, and in Ottawa, June 7-8, approved CP Rail plans for
a second transportation corridor, which would basically follow the
existing right-of-way along the Bow River and Bath Creek. In addition,
approval was given to relocate a siding and 'wye' trackage for turning
snowplows from Lake Louise to Eldon, Alta., about 10 miles east of the
resort community.
In an effort to ensure that the construction of the new line will conform to environmental and technical commitments, the Committee will
establish a working group to monitor these activities. The group will
work and consult with the railway, representatives from various government departments and agencies, and local residents.
A second route, which was strongly supported by local developers, business interests, Alberta MLA Gordon Taylor and the Chamber of Commerce,
was rejected by the Committee. It was found that the route, which would
bypass the Lake Louise townsite, would have considerable environmental
impact on the Banff National Park. Lake Louise interests contended that
the approved route would interfere with the planning and development of
their visitors' service centre. However, the Committee concluded that
they did not demonstrate "to our satisfaction that the net value of the
land which would be released for development under that proposal could
make up for the difference in cost between the two routes."
The route approved by the Committee would cost CP Rail more than $10-
million to construct. The other route would cost more than $18-million.
The 5.5 miles of track approved by the Committee is part of a major upgrading of track through the Rockies in an effort to increase the number
of trains and tonnage through the mountains. CP Rail is planning to
spend an estimated $137-million to construct second tracks and reduce
grades in the area between Lake Louise,- Alta., and Notch Hill, B.C.
Approximately 40 miles are involved.
In its decision, the Committee concluded that "the project which forms
the basis of the company's (CP Rail) application is of significant national and regional importance."
The Committee held that approval was necessary because of "Canada's
growing role as a supplier of material to the nations of the Pacific
Rim, the generation of increasing foreign trade and achievement of a
favourable balance of foreign trade." In addition, it found that the
application "has important implications concerning employment, resource
and regional development, the ability of Canadian producers to place
their produce at tidewater. . ."

RESEARCH
TRAIN 'TRUCK' SAVES WEAR AND TEAR
MONTREAL - The economic benefits of today's bigger freight cars and
longer trains are apparent to marketing people. But to those in charge
of track and equipment, these same cars and trains mean increased rail
and wheel wear when loaded, and shimmying at operational speeds when
empty.
To solve these problems, researchers at CN Rail and Railway Engineering
Associates have come up with a novel, but practical, steering type
"truck". The "truck" is the heavily-reinforced frame on which the
wheels of a railway car are mounted.
Bob Rennie, chief of technical research at CN, says tests on developmental units operating under load in curves snowed up to 60-per-cent
reduction in flange force and as much as 75-per-cent reduction in the
angle of attack between wheel flanges and rail.
According to Mr. Rennie, these results should mean a substantial reduction in track and wheel maintenance, especially on routes where there is
a high degree of curvature.
Operating unloaded, the steering-type trucks demonstrated stability at
speeds up to 80 mph during testing and Mr. Rennie believes this should
reduce truck hunting or shimmying, a cause of derailments.
Harold List, inventor of the steering-type truck, says the benefits of
the new truck can be applied to many existing roller-bearing freight
cars. "All that is required," he says, "is placing rubber pads between
the bearing adapters and the side frames to facilitate steering motion
of the axles and adding steering arms to handle the exchange of steering
forces between the axles." The two steering arms are connected to one
another through one of the holes in the truck bolster. Together, the
rubber pads and steering arms permit radial movement of the axles in
negotiating curves and increased stability on tangent track.
Encouraged by the results obtained with the developmental units of the
steering truck, CN has tested a production model, with additional production units earmarked for retrofitting and regular service evaluation
later this year.
In early August, CN's operations department plans to put the first production models of the steering truck in service on its unit coal trains
between the Luscar mines near Jasper and Port Mann on the Pacific Coast,
a 550-mile route with a high proportion of curves. Annual savings in
wheel and rail maintenance are estimated at $950 for each of the cars in
service on this route. Reduction in friction drag on curves is expected
to add another $225 in annual fuel savings for each of these same cars.
Cost of retrofitting a conventional car with steering is about $1,750
per car, plus labour. 13
Dominion Foundry and Steel Company in Hamilton, Ont., is producing the
steering arms for CN, while the transportation equipment division of
Dresser Industries Inc., of Depew, N.Y., is producing similar equipment
for the United States market.

ECONOMICS
FORECAST IS GLOOMY FOR '79
WASHINGTON - Canada faces another year of disappointing economic growth
in 1979, with little improvement likely either in bringing down record-
high unemployment or in moderating inflation, according to an OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) report released
July 27.
Looking at prospects for the year ahead, the OECD -- an economic advisory body set up by the world's wealthier nations — forecasts four-percent real growth for Canada's economy, little changed from the current
pace. Growth may accelerate briefly early in 1979 "but the rate is expected to be clearly lower (than capacity growth)" for the whole 12-
month period, says the report. As a result, the best that can be expected is that the jobless rate will "stabilize" at its present high
level.
The rise in inflation will not tail off much either. The OECD economists envisage consumer prices going up at an annual rate of seven per
cent in the first half of next year, and warn that inflation could be
worse still if the Canadian dollar weakens.
The annual mid-year economic review looks at all the major economies,
and warns that slow-growth problems will continue to plague them. In
the case of the U.S., the report puts growth in early 1979 no higher
than three per cent, a situation which will restrain Canadian exports
and hold back expansion north of the border as well.
For all the 24 countries making up the OECD membership, growth in the
first half of next year is put at an average of only 3.25 per cent. For
Canada, the OECD forecast tends to be similar to many private projections
that have been made, and considerably more pessimistic than the federal
Government in Ottawa which is still hoping growth will approach five per
cent.
(Montreal Gazette, July 28)

THE LABOR MARKET MAY BE BREEDING INFLATION
NEW YORK - A year ago the number of economists who were forecasting that
the U.S. economy could generate 4.2 million new jobs and that the unemployment rate would fall to 5.7 per cent from 7.1 per cent by June,
1978, could have been counted on the toes of a sloth.
But that is precisely what has happened. And while most economists are
somewhat at a loss to fully explain the stunningly strong labor market,
they are warning that employment is so high that it may have already
reached the inflation danger zone. 14
They caution that the economy is structurally ripe for a rip-roaring
burst of inflation. The price level could be sent skyrocketing not only
because labor markets are a lot tighter than they were only a few
months back, but more important, because the huge increase in jobs has
been accompanied by a big drop in productivity. And slumping productivity spells rising production costs, which in turn mean rising prices.

AVIATION
AIRLINES INCREASE COMMISSION RATES ON DOMESTIC FARES
TORONTO - Air Canada and CP Air will pay travel agents a higher commission rate on most domestic flights, effective Sept. 1.
The new across-the-board rate of 8.25 per cent will replace a cumbersome
system of four rates, ranging from seven to 11 per cent, which has been
in effect since 1970.
The increase is expected to increase profits for the travel agencies and
simplify the administration of the rate system for the airlines.
Air Canada and CP Air said the cost of the higher rate would be partly
offset by savings on paperwork and accounting. "It will affect our profitability, but not enough to cause us to increase fares," an Air Canada
spokesman said.
The change will bring rates on domestic travel, which travel agents have
long complained is unprofitable, in line with the eight-per-cent commission on European and Caribbean flights. Domestic travel accounts for
roughly 25 per cent of travel agency sales, which were estimated at $2-
billion in 1977.

AIR CANADA WINS APPROVAL TO TAKE OVER NORDAIR LTD.
MONTREAL - Air Canada has been given government approval to take over
Nordair Ltd. in a decision handed down July 28 by the Canadian Transport
Commission.
The takeover bid announced by Air Canada last Jan. 9 -- and valued at
about $25-mi11 ion -- had been opposed by privately-owned airlines, the
Quebec government and the federal Government's anti-trust department of
the Ministry of Consumer and Corporate Affairs. The opponents argued
that the move would restrict airline competition, would be against the
government's own airline policy and would not serve the public interest.

HIGH AIRLINE PROFITS MAY SINK NOISE AID
NEW YORK - The spectacular second-quarter profit performance of some

But there is a cloud around that silver lining. The fat profits may
jeopardize pending legislation that would give airlines government money

TOURISM & TRAVEL
STAY-AT-HOME HOLIDAYS MAY SAVE MILLIONS
MONTREAL - Canadians have decided to stay in Canada this year in record
numbers, the nation's spiralling tourism deficit looks like taking a
turn for the better and the nation's airlines have found that their cut-
rate domestic fares are already sold out for most of the tourist season.
Nearly every seat on the bargain-priced domestic charter flights has now
been sold for the summer. The program has proved so successful that
Suntours Ltd. of Toronto has extended the plan beyond the normal tourist
season right to the end of the year.
The mini-boom in domestic travelling should go a long way towards slowing the growth in Canada's tourism deficit, which for the last few years
has hovered around the $600-million mark. In 1977, it shot up to $1.6-
billion and at that rate of growth could have reached $10-billion a year
by the mid-1980s.
Alarmed at the outflow of Canadian dollars, which was partially to blame
for the slump in the value of Canadian currency, the federal Government
launched a drive to keep Canadians at home in the 1978 tourist season.

CANADIANS SCORN SERVILE WORK
EDMONTON - Canadians do not want to do servile work -- and it has nothing to do with wages, says Ken MacKell, CP Hotels' Prairie region
vice-president.
Mr. MacKell said Canadians tend to view service-industry employment --
waitressing, dishwashing and housekeeping -- with disdain. Bringing in
immigrant workers to fill service positions is a short-term solution, he
said. Staff turnover and job placement in the service sector remains a
problem.

SHIPPING
GRAIN FROM PRAIRIES FLOODS SHIPS' HOLDS
MONTREAL - The bottleneck in Canadian grain shipments has eased considerably over the past three weeks, but Canada is still one million metric
tons in arrears in its grain shipments, according to shipping officials.
There are less than a dozen foreign grain ships waiting to load at Canadian ports, compared with more than 50 a month ago. Prairie wheat is
being delivered to grain elevators at Thunder Bay in great enough quantities that lake ships are kept busy loading and carrying it to the St.
Lawrence river ports of Montreal, Quebec City, Baie Comeau and Port Car-
tier. Last month, the lakers were lined up six-deep waiting for grains.
But now there is not a single vessel waiting in Montreal, compared with
nearly a dozen a month ago. There are four ocean vessels waiting at
Trois-Rivi§res but they arrived recently. Most surprisingly, there is
not a single ship waiting in Vancouver, traditionally the worst bottleneck
in the country. While the Canadian shipowners are happy over the end of
the grain bottleeck, they now face another minor problem. The ships are
beginning to back up in U.S. ports along the Great Lakes. As the volume
of business this year with record grain sales to both China and the
Soviet Union is heavy, the port facilities at Duluth, Chicago and Toledo
cannot keep up with the demand.

SARNIA, Ont. - A spokesman for a U.S. group of engineers says year-round

the flow of ice along the system now is in the preliminary stage. Cost
of the proposal is estimated at $1.2-billion, he said. Mr. Perrini said
the proposal was the result of a study conducted by the engineers under
sponsorship of the U.S. Winter Navigation Board. Canada's St. Lawrence

ALGOMA STRUCK, STELCO SETTLES
SAULT STE. MARIE, Ont. - Workers of Algoma Steel Corp. Ltd. struck the
community's largest employer Aug. 1 following rejection of the company's
latest contract offer, a company spokesman said.
The United Steel Workers of America Local 2251 was seeking improved
vacation and pension benefits and the wage package was apparently not a
major issue. In Hamilton, Ont., a similar contract offer was accepted
July 31 by members of the United Steel Workers of America employed by
the Steel Company of Canada Ltd. 18
The contract offered by Algoma and Stelco provides an average wage increase of 40 cents an hour over three years and a cost-of-living increase of about $1.35 an hour over the term of the contract.
The Gazette on Aug. 3 also reported that Algoma Steel Corp. said Aug. 2
the company cannot improve the wage package rejected in a vote by 6,900
production and maintenance workers.
Jim Marinelli, Algoma's supervisor of community relations, said an
improved offer would endanger the company's competitive position with
other mills and jeopardize its employees' jobs.

THE HIGH COST OF FRINGE BENEFITS
TORONTO - Major bargaining units in Canada have won pay increases of
just less than 19 per cent since 1975. But a study to be released this
fall by Thorne Riddel! Associates Ltd., of Toronto, says employee benefits rose over the same period by 30 per cent, or at a rate more than
half as fast again as wages.
Though the management consulting firm's survey differs in size and
concept from those conducted by government, it says employers who coughed up $3,850 a year for each worker on non-wage benefits in 1975 wound
up paying $5,000 on behalf of each employee for those and some new benefits in 1977.
This is a trend that has persisted almost without a break in recent
years and is expected to continue into the foreseeable future. Twenty-
five years ago, employee benefits represented only 15 per cent of all
labor costs. But worker demands for added vacation time and shorter
hours have since taken their toll. Governments have also exacted larger
sums from employers for new and existing programs such as unemployment
insurance, workmen's compensation and the Canada and Quebec pension
plans.

VOTING COULD CRIPPLE AIR CANADA
MONTREAL - As Air Canada's 7,500 ground workers began voting Aug. 3 on
a tentative contract negotiated on the weekend, there were indications
that the pact might be rejected and the country's largest airline grounded.
Real Vaillancourt, president of the Montreal local of the International
Association of Machinists (IAM), which represents the ground workers,
said he "had never seen such dissatisfaction" among his members. He
added that he would recommend "absolute and total rejection" of the
offer in Montreal, where more than half of Air Canada's 7,500 ground
workers are based. (The workers have been seeking an 18-per-cent wage
increase in an 18-month contract. A federal conciliation report recommended a 15-per-cent wage increase in a two-year agreement. The
latest company offer was a 12-per-cent increase in a two-year pact.)

Mr. M.W. Holland
Re meeting on 19 July 1978 at office of Empire Stevedoring Co.,
Vancouver, attended by Messrs. A.N. Cairns, C.A. Aitken of BCCSS,
and Roy MacRae, Manager, Corporate Planning & Development, Empire
Stevedoring Co.
Mr. Cairns gave a broad outline of the areas where CP Rail, CP Rail
BCCS-Northland and National Harbours Board are under study, but
zeroed in on the area in question; e.g., lease Section "H" shown
on Empire's blueprint.
It appears the crux of the matter revolves around their leasing
from Marathon Realty the portion of shed at Nanaimo Terminal and market
rates applied.
Northland filled a section of Parcel "H" over a number of years and
caused a land tax to be levied against Empire, and they feel
justified in being reimbursed for both land and water lot taxes.
Empire propose charging us 700 per sq. ft. on the land (they will
accept our measurement) and 8c to 12c per ft. for the water lot
plus a pro ration of their total tax bill of $125,000.
These charges to be retroactive to January 1, 1978.
Roy MacRae phoned 2 August 1978 asking for status, and he was
advised same would be looked at upon return of Mr. Holland from
annual vacation week of 7 August.

Dear Ms. Luchko:
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.

Regarding your request for additional information of discounted
cruises on the dates of:
May 31 -L.L. McArthur - Agent's Fam Cruise - Capital South Sound
Travel, 325 South Sound Center, Olympia, Washington. Mrs. McArthur
originally made a booking for two clients on the sailing and at a
later date booked a third party, all of which paid full fare. She
then decided to travel with these people and was willing to share
a cabin with one of the passengers she had booked. Due to the
fact she was a travel agent, she was eligible for the Agent's Reduced Rate.
June 16 — Ms. Michele Nies - Agent's Fam Cruise -Ms. Nies made a
booking for travel with another person, who was paying full rate.
With the original booking request she also indicated that she
wanted to be registered for Travel Agent's Reduced Rate. However,
she did state that she would be willing to pay full fare. Later
on June 13 she was confirmed on the "Princess Patricia" sailing of
June 16, therefore Travel Agent's Discount was extended.
August 11 - Mr. B. McLean/Miss S» Pore - C.P. Air Fam Cruise -
Booking was made for Mr. and Mrs. M. Dore for Cabin No. 219,
which is a four-berth cabin, paying full rate. At a later date,
Miss Dore and Mr. McLean requested C.P. Air Reduced Rates on
the same sailing and occupying the same cabin, thus utilizing
the additional two berths in Cabin 219.

Dear Mr. Roker:
Thank you kindly for your letter in connection with the
"Vacation Auction" which is to be sponsored by your fine
organization.
I regret to advise that due to this Company's announced
intention not to run our cruise vessel the "Princess Patricia",
after the end of its current cruise season, I am unable to
comply with your request for donated cruise tickets.
Undoubtedly you will be approaching other cruise ship companies
and trust you will meet with success in obtaining a donated
cruise from one of them.
Yours truly,
Manager, B.C.C.S.S,
HLH/jb .

Memorandum to File
Received call today from CPR San Francisco (Lynn). She has
received request from a Mrs. Zeda Emmons of Trips and Travel
Company, 303 Potrero Street 28, Santa Cruz, California 95O0O.
Request is for departures 1979 of September 20th or 28th for
100 people. Firstly, Emmons couple are looking at Categories
D or E on boat deck for themselves plus 10 cabins with 3
berths and 35 cabins with 2 berths. Category ranges are from
Bl, C, D, to and including E. They are anxious to have space
assigned immediately as they are already in receipt of deposits
for 35-40 people for next year's cruise.
Mrs. Emmons would like a supply of 1979 brochures, rate sheets,
and also some information or prices of the shore excursions
available at ports of call.
On October 7th, 1978 this company will be holding a promotion
for the entire membership of the Travel Incentive Club in
question. They have requested a film and related material
before that time, which I vail supply.
The organizers are requesting travel agent's discount rates for
September 20th or 28th of this season to make themselves more
familiar with the "Princess Patricia."
I have advised CP Air that^we will consider this request this
afternoon and advise them tomorrow what we should be able to do
for them.

Dear Mr. Adei:
Regarding our conversation earlier this morning. Enclosed
please find copies of the "Princess Patricia's" 1978 brochure with 1979 rate sheets attached and brochure shells,
which you might consider using for any promotions you are
doing in your area.
"Princess Patricia" is a 6,000-ton Canadian-owned vessel,
with a Canadian crew, which cruises from Vancouver to
Alaska and return every eight days commencing the 15th of
May through to and including September 28th. The "Princess
Pat" offers the most complete itinerary to Alaska. Departing Vancouver heading north through the Inside Passage
we reach our first port of call, which is Ketchikan. From
there we continue north and reach a small town, which is
Wrangell. From Wrangell we continue through Wrangell Narrows,
which is a 24-mile long channel zigzagging through the Inside Passage. From Wrangell Narrows we cruise overnight
and find ourselves the next day in Glacier Bay, where we
have Park Service Ranger Naturalist for the "Princess Patricia" for its day-long cruise up through Glacier Bay,
highlighted by a stop at the Margaree and Grand Pacific
Glaciers, where we stop the ship for approximately one hour
for Wheelhouse and Engineroom tourists, also to allow passengers
a splendid opportunity to photograph the glacier up close.

Mr. Mike Adei

September 13, 1978
From Glacier Bay we head south into Skagway, arriving early
in the morning and departing approximately midnight, cruising
overnight and arriving the following morning in Juneau, state
capital. After our stay here, we cruise further southward
and arrive in Tracy Arm, the narrow fjord which winds its way
24 miles through the mountains. This area is a scenic wonder
with steepled cliffs rising out of the sea, towering above
the ship.
We are very proud to say that the "Princess Patricia" is the
only ship which will consistently get into Tracy Arm. From
here.we cruise to our first Canadian port of call after leaving
Alaska, Prince Rupert, then on to Alert Bay, and from Alert
Bay back to Vancouver again. Each of the ports of call, except
Wrangell, an optional shore excursion is available for the
benefit of passengers.
When you peruse the enclosed material and additional information is required, please feel free to contact me at (604)
665-3194 (collect), or for reservations you may call Miss
Barbara Thorn at (604) 665-2507 or 2508.
I am sure our very capable staff will be. willing to assist you.
Thank you very much for your interest in our "Princess Patricia"
and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

From    M.W. Holland
To     Memorandum to File:
File:  E-004
A meeting was held at the Northland offices on Friday, 1
September 1978, to discuss the option on the "Empire 40,"
allowing for the extension of the lease for a further six
months at the reduced rate of $11,000 per month. Those in
attendance were as follows:
Empire Tugboats Ltd.
McKenzie Barge & Marine Ways Ltd.
B.C.C.S.-Northland Service
John Manly
R.R. McKenzie
M.W. Holland
A.N. Cairns
V. Jones
E.J. Agar
D. Hall
CP expressed its desire to extend the lease on a month-to-month
basis effective 30 September 1978.  This position was taken in
light of forecasted carryings in late '78 and early '79, as we
were looking for some relief in our operating costs.  What was
originally suggested was a termination of the monthly commitment for the December-January period, and possibly the November-
February period.
The position was appreciated by Messrs. Manly and McKenzie, and
they stated their desire to have an on-going situation, with
perhaps relief in the way of minimal charter rent for a defined
duration;
i.e.
the slack months, with a commitment for lease
of the equipment during 1979.  They stated they saw difficulties
in accepting the barge back without placing it on the open
market; i.e., making it available to other interested parties.
The meeting adjourned with Messrs. Manly and McKenzie to get back
to Canadian Pacific with a proposal for the extended charter of
the equipment.

Re:  R.C. OWENS, Electrician
I have received your letter of August 29, further in
connection with the retirement of Mr. Owens.
Under the circumstances and having consulted our Payroll
and Pensions Department in Montreal, we have taken the
following action:
Mr. Owens will be retired as of August 4, 1978.
All other time due on that date will be paid in
a lump sum the first pay period after August 4.
All time from August 5, will not be subjected to
Railroad Retirement Board or Canadian Pacific
pension deductions.
Trust this successfully deals with the impasse.

"Ocean Prince II"
With regard to fitting "KORTZ" to the above vessel.
According to a tentative verbal report from Jerry Talbot, he
indicated that by fitting "Kortz" nozzles with a cost of between $30 to $40,000, we would have an increase in speed of
approximately 2 percent (i.e. from 7.3 knots to 7.45 knots).
The only advantage would be about a 6 percent fuel saving
and better pulling power at low speed.
It may be possible to increase the speed slightly above 2 percent if we change propellers to alter pitch and diameter,
also change both gear boxes. This would be a costly proposition and would not attain anywhere near a 10 knot speed,
which we are principally looking for.

Relative to Mr.A.J. McPherson's memo covering conversation CPT
personnel, your memo 25 August last.
Upon checking with J.M. Ferguson, Terminal Manager, he informed
me.had had no strong complaints at all recently from the hostlers
regarding the condition of our areas, the last being A-3 area,
which has been rectified.
Some while ago, the area formerly known as Immigration Building
was a problem, but that also was attended to by filling in the
large depressed areas.  In fact, this is to be attended to again
very shortly.  The only contentious area at present is the lead
track to A-^l, which has deteriorated between the tracks.  Mr.
Chizik of CP Rail Engineering'will arrange to have the holes
filled soon.

From   C.A.   Aitken
To   Memorandum
Mr. M.W. Holland
File:  451
Wednesday, 30 August, I met with Mr. E. Robinson in regard to the
proposed new schedules to the Island, especially to'Nanaimo, and
in particular the possibility of a hostling service similar to
Vancouver and Swartz Bay.
We examined the arrivals/departures at Nanaimo and their relation
to shift times and the requirements therewith.  Dividing the day
into Shifts 1, 2 and 3 with starting times 2401, 0800 and 1600, we
noted three arrivals/departures on Shift 1; e.g., "Trailer Princess,"
"Princess of Vancouver" and "Carrier Princess," in that order, and
would employ a hostling unit for seven hours.  Shift 2 covers
"Princess of Vancouver" and "Carrier Princess" respectively, with
Shift 3 handling "Princess of Vancouver" only.  Hostling for Shift 2
would be required for five hours and Shift 3 for three hours, making
a guarantee of 15 hours per day each unit.
Mr. Robinson figures three units at his end could handle the traffic
if the machines and drivers were good calibre.  His preference for
hostling companies was outlined, and stated two JTL and one
Pactow should suffice.  JTL have a large inventory of equipment to
draw from if required, and Pactow have two fifth-wheel tractors
(one hydraulic))and one Mobile Home tractor capable of hooking to
any type of hitch.  He would not be happy with a CPT unit due to
past experiences with them in so far as their equipment and drivers,
both reliability and calibre,were concerned.
Mr. Robinson stated emphatically that if no schedule changes were
made, he prefers to retain the present method of unloading/loading
ships . at Nanaimo.
Perhaps some thought should be given to experimenting with present
method of handling trailers at Nanaimo if the proposed schedule
came into force before embarking on a hostling service at that point.
