Dear Mr. Armstrong:
Thank you for your letter of
position aboard our ships*
December 17, 1975, requesting a
I regret to say that we do not have a suitable position in which
we can use you. Our hands are somewhat tied in that we have a
contract with the Seafarer's International Union through whom
wa hire all uncertificated deck and engineroom personnel*
The only other positions that come open from time to time are
for Porters* This work involves dishwashing, cleaning public
and toilets aad handling baggage; however, due to the aale of our
vessel the "Princess Marguerite" to the Government of British
Columbia, we have many Porters in the "laid off" category and they,
of course, will receive first consideration when business picks up
in the spring*
Sorry 1 cannot give you a more encouraging reply to your letter but
this is how the picture looks et the present time* Thank you for
your interest In B.C. Coaat Steamship Service*

Wa arc negotiating with Crown Zellerbach to carry rail cars from
Pier A-l, Vancouver, to their pulp mill at Elk Falls.
It Is our intention to combine this movement with our present
Beaver Cove service leaving Vancouver at 1000 K Saturday, arriving
Elk Falls approximately 1200 K Sunday, returning to Vancouver Sunday
at 2000 K.
Enclosed is copy of agreement dated July 25, 1966* with respect to
per diem* What effect will this have on the B.C.C.S.S* . Presume the
B.C.C.S.S. would be considered an extention of CP. Bail and, therefore,
par diem would not apply* If this Is the case would demurrage apply
and if so under what conditions. Per diem incurred by the preaent
water carrier, Gulf of Georgia is charged back to drown Zellerbach*
Our competition for this business la Seaspan who are offering a
bi-weekly service and naturally would incur heavier par diem charges
than Gulf of Georgia who are providing weekly service*

Attached overtime sheets are returned for clarification
as to v*iy overtime is being claimed for duties beyond
completion of vetch account late sailing.
As vetches  change coincidental with sailing times,  it
is assumed the vetch coming on con£>rises sufficient
persons to carry out the required duties.
In the case of D. Drew claiming overtime for blocking
trailers an duty, be advised that the need to block
trailers  is a decision of the officer on watch, and if
this need did in fact exist, then an explanation by
the officer on «*atch is required to substantiate this
requirement.

NOTICE TO SHIPPERS:
We are continuing to examine every area of expense
in an effort to curtail costs and thereby keep increased transportation rates to a minimum.
In spite of our efforts, shipyard charges, supplies,
and other costs continue to rise, and as a result,
it is necessary for us to increase our tariff rates
by 15% effective January 1, 1976.
We will continue to do our best to provide a good
service at reasonable rates, and wish to take this
opportunity to thank you for your patronage.

October 1975, is returned for clarification.
The unit was accepted by BCCS and installation costs
paid for on the basis of the unit being operationally
functional, and was maintained during its period of
use as c ccst to the user. It would seen, therefore,
that when the unit was returned in good working carder,

On Saturday, November 29, 1975, mobile home #10385, property of
Commonwealth Mobile Homes, was being loaded on to the "Seaspan Doris"
at 16:00 a.m.
For tuis purpose we had engaged Buster!s Air Float Transport Ltd.
to move the home; however, the driver of the vehicle nad another driver
who works for Buster's City lowing (no connection with Buster's Air
Flost) do the job. While being towed by this driver, the mobile home
was turned too aharply and sustained approximately $2,500.00 worth of
damage.
We have no alternative but to settle for the damage with Commonwealth
Mobile homes and X have advised tuem to have the repairs done and
forward the bill to this office. Will you kindly arrange to recover
the amount of the repair bill from either Buster's City Towing or
Buster's Air Float Transport Ltd., aa  one or the other is clearly
responsible for the damage.
Understand the man to deal with at Buster's City Towing is Walter Bott,

The Company requests the Board to recommend that wages
be increased as under:-
All basic rates to be increased by $35.00
per month effective November 1, 1969, and
$20.00 per month, effective November 1, 1970.
With such increases being granted this would give the
B.C. Coast Steamship Service unlicensed deck and engineroom
personnel rates higher than that allowed on all ferries
operating between Vancouver and Vancouver Island.
The Company draws to the attention of the Board that
the cost of applying the wage increases is only a portion
of the increased payroll costs which would be incurred as
a result of the higher wages being applied.  Increases in
basic wages are also reflected in overtime rates, annual
vacation pay, payment for statutory holidays and for weekly
leave.
The intense competition in the ferry service from
and to Vancouver Island must be carefully considered in any
assessment of wage rates.  This competition precludes the
possibility of increased rates on the Vancouver-Nanaimo route
especially which, of course, can heve detrimental effects in
the face of exaggerated wage increases.  Naturally the

"Incan St. Laurent"—Passed through gill net
of vessel "Harbour Girl" October 3. 1975
I am enclosing toy complete file on the above subject.
In view of the Msster's reports of the incident which bears out
that the proper navigations1 procedure was adhered to and the fact
that other vessels in the area had no difficulty in picking up their
nets and avoiding the "Incan St. Laurent", we do not accept responsibility for the damage.
You will note also that contrary to Mr. Con Deplores' statement
our vessel did not blow a warning whistle, adequate whistle signals
were, given.
Will you kindly handle along these lines.

Thank you for your inquiry of
We are pleased to enclose copy of our Alaska brochure by which you will note the
"Princess Patricia" operates on a round trip cruise basis only and that we do not
book one-way traffic unless accommodation is available closer to sailing, nor does
this vessel handle automobiles.

2285 Commissioner St., Vancouver, B.C., who operate a service fron Vancouver
to Prince Rupert, B.C., and from this latter port the Alaska State Ferries have a
service to Alaska ports, such as Ketchikan, Wrangell, Petersburg, Sitka, Juneau,
Haines and Skagway.  They also have a service from Seattle direct to these ports.
They are located at Pier 48, Alaskan Way, Seattle, Wash., 98104, telephone

Dear Sirs:
Further to our telephone conversation in September and October,
1975, regarding water contamination of fuel taken from your barge
aboard our "Princess Patricia" while bunkering at Pier "C"*
Attached is a latter from Mr* Medforth, Chief Engineer, of the
above vessel stating the approximate quantities and times when
contamination occurred*
Knowing Mr* Medforth, Chief Engineer, and also the tests carried
out on several fuel tanks aboard the vessel it is apparent that
contamination originated on the barge prior to the commencement
of bunkering*
I would, therefore, be obliged if you could indicate in this matter
as to the results of your findings in reference to tests carried out
at the refinery tanks or bunker barge to ascertain where this water-
fuel contamination initially occurred*

Further regarding Doman trailer No. 39 with load of steel which
collapsed on board the "Princess of Vencouver" ex Vancouver noon
sailing on November 10.
•j ■'■  •' ■_..-■*
Our Terminal Supervisor advises as follows:
"Doman*a driver remarked when he made out shipping bill
that 'the- legs sure wobbled when he dropped trailer'
indicating very heavy load. Our hostler put the trailer
aboard the "Princess of Vancouver" without incident and
problem apparently developed enroute to Nanaimo. If there
was any rolling motion by the vessel, this of course could
contribute to the accident."

Reference your letter of December 8th# File 103-24, concerning Manager, Customer and Agency Accounts* inquiry of
bar audit of the "Princess of Vancouver.u
As stated, reconciliation of cash register tapes is made
to cash on liana and each month this office checks bar inventory book for comparison of calculated sales to cash.
Two or three times a year (more often if necessary), the
stock is checked by a member of the Accounting Department,
along with the Catering Superintendent. A report of our
findings is submitted to Manager, Disbursement Accounting,
Montreal.
Over the years this process has been considered adequate
for control purposes; however, an agency audit occasionally
might be of some merit.  As they intend to charge for such
services, benefits which may be derived therefrom should
be weighed against cost to B.C. Coast steamship Service.

Further to recent conversation concerning laundry contract
for 1976.
The actual laundering of B.C.C.S.S.,  linen was most satisfactory, and the co-operation of laundry management exemplary.
However, the carrier service between our ships and the Hotel
Vancouver was completely disorganized, although we realised
with the change of drivers there possibly wouXd be difficulties for a week or two, until the new driver became
familiar with his route.    The contract calls for pickup and
delivery on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for the local
ships, but this schedule has not been followed.    It has resulted on occasion,  in the use of taxis and private automobiles  for pickup and delivery? has caused complaints  from
the Officers1 Guild and the Seamen's International Union,
and necessitated the increase of linen allotment on our
vessels.
This situation should be rectified by the Hotel Vancouver,
as it has not only taken up considerable of ray time, but
also that of their own laundry superintendent and his
secretary.

Mr. A. McDermott
Montreal, Que.
Reference your letter of November 10th regarding fire
safety inspections on board BCCSS vessels by qualified
personnel from your Department.
In view of the excellent coverage by your officers over
the years, this matter has been given serious consideration. You are aware, of course, that the Canadian Steamship Inspection Surveyors carry out an annual inspection
on all of our vessels, and on occasion will make special
surveys. In addition, there is a weekly inspection by
the Master and his officers during regular fire and boat
drillsi nevertheless, the examinations carried out by
your personnel have been very helpful, and I should not
wish to discontinue them. Therefore, I would recommend
that one inspection per year be carried out by your
Inspector on board the "Princess of Vancouver," "Carrier
"Princess" and "Trailer Princess," say about six months
following the annual inspection by the Ministry of
Transport. In the case of the "Princess Patricia,"
feel we should have semi-annual inspections* once during
the winter layup and once during the summer season when
the vessel is in operation. We would, of course, require
the fire protection engineering services for new vessels.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very
much for your assistance in all these matters.

In connection with the Thanksgiving Cruise by the "Princess
Patricia," details of which will be found in the enclosed
Transportation Notice No. 16/75, wa arranged shore excursions as indicated under "Share Excursions■ on Page 2,
through Northwest Hosts Group and Convention Travel Services,
Doug Fox Group Travel Inc., 1325 Fourth Avenue, Suite 1111,
Seattle, Washington 93101. We also enclose copy of Shore
Excursion particulars.
Original arrangements required the operator of the shore
excursions to provide particulars with billing, including
uplifted BCS 1*8 which were issued on Vancouver on a pre-
sale basis.  Inadvertently, BCS l's were destroyed by the
operator in Seattle. This office had arranged photostat
of all BCS 1 tickets issued, and accordingly we are attaching same, together with statement outlining total sales.
Additionally, we had arranged with the operator to allow
Travel Agents 1G5£ commission when clients were booked
through their facilities.
Billing has now been received, delayed account Canadian
postal strike, which indicates a gross difference of
$1.60 represented by the sale of one half-fare as opposed
to adult fare, Seattle Shuttle Service (Adult $3.25);
otherwise, account, is correct for gross sales by number
of tickets issued.  Allowing for commission deducted at
source, $11.30, the net amount due Northwest Hosts is
$226.35 Canadian, as indicated in the attached statement.

JXL 5984 is an old  trailer with landing legs that do not wind
dawn far enough so that trailer ess be picked up by a tractor,
four driver brought the trailer in to our yard sad placed a block
of wood under each landing leg. When the trailer was dropped it
probably had sufficient air hut this slowly hied off before it was
picked .up* by the tractor,, la this condition the slightest contact
with the tractor would send it rolling backward*, dropping the legs
off the blocks aad causing the legs to collapse when they struck
the ground* As this is exactly what happened in this instance, we
have no alternative hut to reject your claim.
It was necessary to have the trailer moved by Commercial Heavy
Towing and you will shortly he hilled for this service.

First and forawost, no matter how thorough marketing plans
iaay be, without proper space control at the source, the
advantage of tho aforementioned marketing plan becomes
diluted. W« had an excellent abeyance system established in
this office, but found during the past year that it was not
being affectively used. Accordingly, with the appointment
of Miss Thorn as nanior Clark* Alaska Berthing, account her
experience in Atlantic bookings and latterly with Alaska
bookings, we have updated our abeyance system, which will
be strictly adhered to*
All travel groups will be personally contacted by Miss
Thorn three months prior to sailing for a situation report,
and release of apace from those agencies who obviously
art having difficulty in promoting a "Princess Patricia*
cruise. Full ralaass of space and payment will be required
six weeks in advance, with the exception of U.T.L. Tours,
with whom we have made separate arrangements, but who,
nevertheless, will be closely watched for their performance
during the 1976 season. Individual bookings are required
to be finalised six weeks in advance of sailing also. Letters
of confirmation will include advice that a 25% cancellation
faa will be charged against all reservations cancelled
after six weeks before sailing. The exception will be if
the cancellation is by reason of death, illness or injury,
and/or t£ space cancelled can be resold. The office filing
abeyance routine will place all pending reservation files
in an option location, which will be checked each day.

With the introduction to the Alaska cruise area by Cunard,
Paguet Lines, and to a lesser degree, B.C. Steamship Co,
(1975) Ltd., during the 1976 season there will be a total
of 13 ships, of which 12 will be to Alaska specifically,
and one, the "Prince George," cruising B.C. waters only as
far north aa Ketchikan.
Excluding the "Prince George, • it is estimated that BCCSS
will only have an 8°& share of the total market, and every
endeavour to maximize the utilisation of the "Princess
Patricia" during the normal cruise season and in charter
service on shoulder periods, will be made.
Although wo have conservatively projected an Bf% occupancy
factor for budget purposes, it is hoped we will achieve a
90% occupancy factor during the 1976 season.
U.S. group operators during 1973 war* severely affected by
the econowy of the United states, and although there was
an upswing in their ecanony, following the and of June, it
really did not assist the group operators appreciably.
Canadian group operators performed excellently, and wa are
pleased to have repeat requests from Evergreen Tours, Vancouver* B.C.; two requests from Midnight Sun Tours of
Chatham, Ontario? an additional sailing for a total of
eight sailings by Horizon Holidays, Toronto* Ontario? one
sailing Personalised Travel, Calgary? two tours under the
auspices of Pioneer Tours, Vancouver, B.C., and the return
to tha "Patricia- by U.T.L. on each of the 13 seasonal
sailings.
All Of the normal U.S. group tour operators have again requested space with us, and in addition* wa are accommodating
Travalaska on each of the 13 sailings. Travalaska is the
new travel venture organised by Chuck West, founder of
Westours. Chuck wast is President of a.v.a. this year*
and predicts a most favourable year for his company and

Kneisel Travel, with whom we have dealt for several years,
and on whose behalf we hold space on each of the seasonal
sailings, hrsve added an exclusive New York firm to their
marketing of the "Princess Patricia." Additionally* we
have accepted soma new smaller groups, and in total throughout the summer season will have 90 groups on board ship*
representing approximately 70% occupancy of the "Princess
Patricia." we feel occupancy should firm down to 60%.
This has been our first area of concern for the marketing
of the 1976 "Princess Patricia" season. While we have exceeded the normal allotment of space to travel agencies
over the past few years, it has been done with the thought
in mind that with proper surveillance of the respective
group operators and their marketing of the space assigned
to then. It will assist in increasing the perishable occupancy of the "Princess Patricia."
The postal strike has partially hampered the distribution
of our Alaska brochures? notwithstanding* local distribution
was arranged and other sail was sent from the United States.
Brochures are now being handled normally for this time of
the year (Christmas) and will be in full swing effective
December 29th.
Individual travel agents who have dealt with us in the past
two years are included in the mailing of the brochure, and
Christmas cards have been sent to all passengers with legible
addresses on their embarkation information forms. More
personal contact will be made with individual travel agencies,
and seminars will be considered locally in the new year for
Alaska slide and discussion presentations, including breakfast and luncheon gatherings* dependent upon availability
of funds.
Senior citizen groups will be approached for Alaska slide
presentations for the purpose of encouraging standby basis
for senior citizens* and listings of those who would be
willing to travel at a reduced rate on three days notice*
should any sailing throughout the season become soft.
During the lay-up of the "Princess Patricia" this year* wa
are undertaking a sprucing up of sons of her public areas.

marketing of their local "Patricia" package* and
(b) To attract the interest of individual inquiries for
"Patricia" information.
As was don* in 1975, on four sailings during 1976 we will
introduce passenger questionnaires for a consensus of
opinion respecting the "Patricia's" Alaska cruise. Upon
the conclusion of the 1976 season, these passenger inquiries
will be evaluated, and in addition* it will be determined

paramount concern to the Company.  This should also be of
concern to the Union, inasmuch as such wage increases are
already having a direct effect on the stability of employment
for the meif %he Union represents due to the intense competition
being encountered and the pricing of our service. Further
pyramiding of wage costs will only worsen the situation.
The wage demand of the Union certainly is an
inflationary one and far in excess of Federal guide lines.
As matters stand, wage increases in the B.C. Coast Steamship
Service have risen above the cost of living index during
recent years? for example, for the period May 1, 1967 to
May 1, 1969, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics Cost of Living
Index for Vancouver increased 8% from 110.5% to 118.5%, yet
on the other hand the rate for an A.B. Seaman rose 14.2% in
the same period.
If Canadian Pacific is to secure and retain its share
of the available traffic potential in a highly competitive
market, this can only be accomplished through exerting every
means to rigidly control our costs.
It is obvious, therefore, that while the request of the
Union for an inflationary increase in wage rates over their
present levels is unwarranted and unjustified, a recommendation
for an increase over and above that offered by the Company would
have far-reaching and serious consequences both to the Company

With reference to coupon conversion, it is hoped that this
item, which appears in the 1976 budget* can be approved*
in that we have never had a real opinion as to the effectiveness of brochure related bookings from coupon inquiries.
We are presently in conversation with CP Air for a co-operative
arrangement through which CP Air offices will be able to
handle direct bookings and sales, with confirmation still
from this office? however, the matter of the percentage
of commission is presently at issue, but should be resolved
shortly.
During the latter part of the 1975 season* Mr. Raid had the
opportunity of hosting on hoard the "Patricia" at luncheon*
two groups of CP Air representatives from their Vancouver
Tour Dsek* San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Throughout the entire season* Mr. Held has also made himself
available to interested groups, travel agents, airline representatives, etc.* World Ship society and other groups, for
tours of the "Patricia" and "on the spot" discussion concerning her service. With the availability of the "Patricia"
in Vancouver* this will be done throughout the layover season,
consistent with her winter appearance.
Frost the foregoing* we are hopeful we will achieve our objective, 87-90% occupancy in 1976.
A great deal of public relations resulted through the operation of the Canadian Power Squadrons charter to Ketchikan
on October 6th, and the ThanSsigiving Weekend Cruise* October
10th. Many people have commented that they did not realize
the extent of the "Prineees Patricia" facilities or her
potential. Resulting from thm Canadian Power Squadrons, Mr.
Reid has had one call concerning a 1977 convention charter.
Mr. Burehill has ccsssentod that aa a result of the Thanksgiving weekend Cruise, he has had several people say they
would consider a "Princess Patricia" Alaska cruise in 1976,
and literature was left with them prior to disembarking.

We have been striving to extend the spring shoulder period
of the operation of the "Princess Patricia." Two ehartsra
are confirmed under letters of intent, for May 15th and
May 23rd. we have had inquiries respecting May 7th, and
depending upon the outcome of these inquiries we will
schedule a short commencement cruise* mid-week if necessary.
In the fall we have two Alaska cruises under charter for
■eptember 12th and 20th? a Ketchikan charter September 29th,
and ere still hopeful of interest by the sbrine for an
Alaska cruise aa October 2nd. We have reviewed all past
charter requests and updated inquirers with current literature
for charter possibilities in the next few years. Every endeavour to encourage additional use of the "Princess Patricia"
will be followed up in order to extend a shoulder-gieriod
operation of the vessel. Upon conclusion of the 1976
season the whole year's operation will be reviewed to see what
we can do better in 1977, and how it applies to the following
years of the vessel.
Our rate structures will he increased to the degree ws feel
the market will bear, and items such as "on board" service
and entertainment will be continually reviewed, with improvement adopted whenever financially possible.
"Princess Patricia* herself* will be upgraded each year.
Our overall five-year plan will be to encourage and improve
profitability to the extent that when it becomes financially
impossible to continue the operation of the ship from an
operation view* we a»y replace the "Princess Patricia" with
a mere modern vessel, either in yearly cruising* Alaska
versus South Pacific areas* or as a dual-purpose cargo and
cruising vessel.

Dear Ms* Grahamt
We have for acknowledgment your letter of November

"Princess Patricia" and the "Prince George" on two
occasions during the 1976 cruise season.
VJhile naturally British Columbia Coast steamship
Service will co-operate to the fullest extent possible*
this is strictly dependent upon tidal conditions and
the economy of any extra steaming required in connection therewith* both of which cannot be determined
until closer to the dates concerned.
We have appreciated the arrangements made on our behalf
in the past, and are certain you are aware the number
of years the "Princess Patricia" has called at Alert
Bay, for which we believe certain preference should
be given our vessel.
We are hopeful that some amicable arrangement can be
worked out? however, in due course we would appreciate
confirmation of berthing arrangements in Alert Bay
for the cruise season, in order that the programme of
the "Patricia" may be maintained.
Yours very truly*

J. Yates
Mr. 3.D. Margetts
Montreal, Que.
Reference your letter November 13th, File 103-12-7, concerning CP Transport traffic reaving in rail cars.
The following information has been developedt
1. Reasoni
Due to the forest  industry strike, CP Transport were
unable to secure any volume of traffic off Vancouver
Island, and as a result,  found themselves shipping
empty trailers off island.    To alleviate this situation they loaded general freight for Nanaimo and
Victoria in rail cars.
2. Cost for a 45 ft. van Vancouver to Nanaimo and return
Ferry tolls and hostling Vancouver return
(reflects discount)       $102.00
Tractor and driver, haul trailer from CPT
to ferry terminal 25.00
Tractor aad driver, remove from ferry and
deliver to CPT, Nanaimo 25.00
$152,00
Railway bills covering movement of some of these cars
are enclosed. Our information is that these oars move
O.C.s. and Mr. Harriman's office in Montreal assesses
charges on actual weight of car. Our understanding
of O.C.S. is "Company material," and this most certainly is not Company material but "general merchandise'
being moved under CPT tariff.

the cost of two meals, one when they travel from Victoria to
Vancouver, and the other meal when returning from Vancouver
to Victoria when assigned to laid up ships.  The payment of

provided by the Company.
The Union was advised that the Company's acceptance

The Union demanded that present Article 2, Section 8,

enginerooms shall be considered as work
to be done by unlicensed personnel of
the engineroom department covered by this
agreement.
For the reasons already advanced by the Company in

on pages 6, 7 and 8, the Board is respectfully requested to

3. One car Monday through Friday, P.O.V. 2000
One ear Tuesday through Saturday, P.O.V. 0400
One or two cars a week as required.
4* we are unable to determine switching charges, etc.,
incurred by CP Rail to handle these cars.
5. It in awkward for BCCSS to have to handle "one" car
on the P.O.V. 0400; i.e., loading time, unloading
time, especially when this particular car is being
handled on an O.C.s. basis, and sometimes we have
to leave other trailer traffic behind account lack of
space. CP Transport enjoy a 25% volume discount
from BCCSS on Nanaimo-Vancouver service. In return
they guarantee to direct the major portion of their
traffic over our service• Shipping general freight
in rail cars O.C.S. would appear to contravene this
arrangement, and possibly we should approach CP
Transport on this basis.
This matter was discussed with CP Transport and they advised that now that B.C. Forest Industry is again in
operation they will no longer be loading freight in rail
cars for the P.O.V. 0400, or any additional oars other
than the one rail oar for the P.O.V. 2000, Monday through
Friday.

Dear Ms. Watsont
For the pest six weeks Canada has been without postal
services, and our letter of October 9th may or may
not have reached you as a result of the postal strike.
A copy of that letter is attached in the event it went
astray in the mails.
Annual audit is being made of the "Princess Patricia"
operation, and we have been asked by our Auditors to
arrange clearance of the $2,000.00 stop-payment cheque
as quickly as possible.
The question has been asked as to whether or not Mr.
storm may have required some funds in addition to his
gratuities, and if this was the case then we would have
to ask you for full payment of the $2,000.00 item.
We will appreciate your immediate attention to this
matter, and in anticipation of reply, thank you for
your consideration of this request.
Yours very truly,

between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  The schedules
of some of the ships are such that it is necessary to carry
out maintenance work before 8:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m.  In
the case of the "Princess Marguerite" particularly, which
vessel leaves Seattle, Washington, at 8:30 a.m., passengers
commence to embark at 7:30 a.m. and therefore, it is
necessary to carry out some maintenance work prior to 7:30 a.m.
Over the years, the provisions contained in the current
agreement have worked well, with a minimum of hardship to the
crew, at the same time maintaining the flexibility necessary
for the efficient operation of these vessels.  It would appear
that their demand is just another means of obtaining an overtime payment for work which should normally form part of the
regular duties.  In the circumstances, we would ask the Board
to recommend that no change be made in this clause.

 VANCOUVER, December 4, 1975. Filei  75-PAT.CRUISE.
J, Yates
Mr. a.D. Margetts
Montreal, Que.
With reference to your letter of October 15th, File No.
103-6, regarding the Thanksgiving cruise by "Princess
Patricia* October 10-13, 1975.
Various charges have finally reached us in connection with
the above cruise, notwithstanding the Canadian postal
strike, and feel we are now in a position to evaluate the
operation of this short cruise.
The purpose in operating the Thanksgiving cruise was two-foldt
1. To extend the period of operation of the "Princess
Patricia"
(a) Positioning of the vessel in respect of time of
the year.
2. To determine the practicability and acceptability of
a "Princess Patricia" short cruise.
(a) Duration of cruise.
(b) Cruise itinerary.
(c) Extent of shipboard activities required.
(d) Requirement of prior shore tours arrangement.
(e) Tariff range.
(f) Extent of advertising required.
Summarizing the foregoing*
Item 1 (a) In view of the terminating date of the last
seasonal charter of the "Princess Patricia," we were
 30.
It is interesting to note that while the Union insists
on having all sanitary and maintenance work performed between
the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., except that concerned
with the safe navigation of the ship, they have demanded when
any of this work is performed between the hours of 5:00 p.m.
and 8:00 a.m., such work shall be paid at the regular overtime
rate.  On January 6, 1970, the Company proposed to the Union
that all maintenance work, except that concerned with the safe
navigation of the ship and sanitary duties, be performed
between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  The schedules
of some of the ships are such that it is necessary to carry
out maintenance work before 8:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m.  In
the case of the "Princess Marguerite" particularly, which
vessel leaves Seattle, Washington, at 8:30 a.m., passengers
commence to embark at 7:30 a.m. and therefore, it is
necessary to carry out some maintenance work prior to 7:30 a.m.
Over the years, the provisions contained in the current
agreement have worked well, with a minimum of hardship to the
crew, at the same time maintaining the flexibility necessary
for the efficient operation of these vessels.  It would appear
that their demand is just another means of obtaining an overtime payment for work which should normally form part of the
regular duties.  In the circumstances, we would ask the Board
to recommend that no change be made in this clause.
 r
fortunate during the current season to position the ship
at the commencement of the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend,
October 10-13. It is debatable whether or not sufficient
interest could be created during any other period of the
week, as the majority of passengers came from non-holiday
local residents, with only a small percentage of retired
persons in evidence.
In discussion with a representative group of people, we
learned they would not have been abls to take the trip
during the mid-week; however, it can be argued there could
be many people who did not take the cruise because of the
type of people they felt would be attracted to a weekend
cruise* and if we decided to operate a short cruise at the
commencement of the 1976 season, we would have to go on
the assumption that this is factual. At the present time
it would appear we will commence normal Alaska charter service on Saturday, May 15th, and we will have to position
the ship for a short cruise departing Vancouver either
Tuesday or Wednesday of that week.
There appeared to be great interest in the cruise from the
Seattle area, and a joint endeavour between Vancouver and
Seattle embarkation could be considered.
Item I - Obviously, great interest was created locally by
the operation of the cruise, and the majority of passengers
indicated more of these weekend short cruises were needed.
Those who travelled were in agreement they had had a tremendous cruise, and their comments were very glowing concerning service, food, friendliness of the crew, and in
particular* the ship itself. We feel we have established
that it is practical to operate short cruises and that they
are acceptable to the general public when operated over a
weekend, and in particular a holiday weekend. It remains
to be determined if mid-week cruises are as acceptable.
(a) Duration of cruise - 67 hours was long enough and sufficiently well organised to be the approximate proper short
cruise duration without boredom setting in.
 30.
It is interesting to note that while the Union insists
on having all sanitary and maintenance work performed between
the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., except that concerned
with the safe navigation of the ship, they have demanded when
any of this work is performed between the hours of 5:00 p.m.

Itm I (Cont»d.)
(b) Cruise Itinerary - The requirement of the "Princess
Patricia" to call at a U.S. port provided the opportunity
to take the ship into Seattle and to permit passengers to
shop and sightsee in that interesting city. From the
number of purchases taken back on board* it appeared the
majority of passengers were most interested in shopping.
Local British Columbia waters, presenting some of the most
beautiful scenery on the Pacific Coast, except glaciers,
were utilised by Capt. Pendry Harris, and freedom was accorded him in the choice of route, dependent upon weather
condlt ions.
After departing Seattle on Saturday, October 11th, the
ship cruised overnight through Puget Sound, Haro f^trait,
trait of Georgia* north through Discovery Passage to Seymour Narrows, returning via local inlets. An attempt was
made to navigate Jervis Inlet cm Monday morning* but fog
prevented traversing to the full extent. Ship arrived in
Vancouver on schedule at 4:00 p.m. Monday. The route was
hampered minimally by fog, which is prevalent at that time
of the year. The inlets traversed and the route of the
cruise were more than acceptable to the "Patricia's" passengers, and a great deal of credit must be given to Capt.
Harris for his route decision.
(c) It was found that thensual shipboard activitiesi i.e.,
horseracing, bingo* the Has wells' entertainment, evening
dancing in the Dining Room, Captain's champagne party,
were more than adequate. The main dancing was held in the
Dining Room on Saturday and Sunday evenings, with light
Kusie available in the bar (Haldawey Room). It teas noted
that the Haidawsy Room was empty shortly after midnight cm
both evenings.
(d) ws are attaching list of shore tours arranged by Northwest Host Group and Convention Travel Services, Seattle.

Tour A was tho most popular, with 24 prior bookings; Tour
8* 12* and Tour C, 6. However, on arrival Seattle, Tour
B was booked out by people making up their minds on the
spot* with approximately 30 additional people taking Tour
A. It is felt that an organised shore tour is necessary
and should be considered in future short cruise plans.
(©) There was no trouble in selling passage up to $200.00
per person, but resistance wa3 indicated above that amount*
and it would appear that maximum category (i) should not
exceed $295.00 per person. The average revenue by numbers
travelling works cut to $164.00 per person as compared with
$176.00 to Alaska* by hours of route based on minimum Alaska
fare* By reason of the variety of categories of accommodation offered on the "Patricia," minimum fares (a) could be
at least $50.00 higher, with less difference between categories! therefore* the range in tariff rate should be from
$175.00 per person to maximum of $295*00* resulting in
revenue (302 passengers) of approximately $66,470.00. You
will note from the attached reauroaf of passage sales, that
actual cruise occupancy berths exceeded availability. During
the last week standbys were accommodated on the basis of
$175.00, $150.00 and $125.00* in whatever space was available and at the best selling rates. In addition* 10 Agency
fares were made available to local Travel Agents, also three
half-fares* dependents of Agents, and w© crrfbarked four
passengers ex Seattle to Vancouver.
(f) It was the opinion of McKim's Agency that a short cruise
is boat promoted on a short-term basis, close to sailing.
We w©re not entirely in agreement with thia at the time,
and requested an advance of one week in advertising. It
was proved that McKim's were correct in that the advertising
attracted continued interest from commencement to sailing
date of people who were looking for something to do on the
spur of the moment for th© Thanksgiving weekend.

We feel in retrospect* that we may have had greater coverage than was necessary. Although we did budget for $5*000.00
for advertising* the actual cost exceeded this by some
$500.00. Planning of this particular cruise was late because of the Canadian Power Squadrons delayed confirmation
of their Ketchikan charter.
With a mark-up of 40% we estimated full revenue (302 passengers)
at $62*063.00* with profit of $17,732.00. Costs were estimated at $44,331.00 and were actually $43,402.00. Prom the
attached statement you will notice the item of food and
steward's supplies was $6*053.00. It has been established
that only minimal supplies ware required for this cruise,
as was the ease on the previous charter* and although It
is difficult to estimate actual food costs, feel that this
item could be greatly inflated.
Weather plays a most important part in short cruises at that
time of the year, aa was evidenced by the fact that commencing the week of October 6th we had a total of 233 passengers,
of which some 30 had been offered space the week before for
acceptance and payment the beginning of the week. On Tuesday and Wednesday, October 7th and 8th* the good weather we
had experienced turned exceedingly foul* with cold winds
and pelting rain, and by Thursday we were down to 250 passengers, including standby salest  with majority of those under
offer the previous week declining for fear of inclement
weather. Fortunately, the weather turned favourable on
October 10th* and we did pick up a few last-minute sales.
This points out how conscious people are of the weather* and
as mentioned above, how important this feature is in a
short cruise. In other words* profit of this cruise was
affected by the change in weather pattern. The approximate
value of the 30 fares was $5*400.00.

It is interesting to note that while the Union insists
on having all sanitary and maintenance work performed between
the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., except that concerned
with the safe navigation of the ship, they have demanded when
any of this work is performed between the hours of 5:00 p.m.
and 8:00 a.m., such work shall be paid at the regular overtime
rate.  On January 6, 1970, the Company proposed to the Union
that all maintenance work, except that concerned with the safe
navigation of the ship and sanitary duties, be performed
between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  The schedules
of some of the ships are such that it is necessary to carry
out maintenance work before 8:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m.  In
the case of the "Princess Marguerite" particularly, which
vessel leaves Seattle, Washington, at 8:30 a.m., passengers
commence to embark at 7:30 a.m. and therefore, it is
necessary to carry out some maintenance work prior to 7:30 a.m.
Over the years, the provisions contained in the current
agreement have worked well, with a minimum of hardship to the
crew, at the same time maintaining the flexibility necessary
for the efficient operation of these vessels.  It would appear
that their demand is just another means of obtaining an overtime payment for work which should normally form part of the
regular duties.  In the circumstances, we would ask the Board
to recommend that no change be made in this clause.

While the cruise was marginal in profit, the potential we
feel is there, and the experience gained through the operation
of this Thanksgiving weekend cruise can be used in promoting
short cruises in the future. We are willing to try a midweek short cruise in the spring, feeling there will be enough
interest to at least break even, and with the prospects of
better weather it could prove a profitable venture. Planning
for this short cruise is held in abeyance pending clarification of the May 7th charter position* and of the fall position
respecting a possible Shrine charter.

leave will be given in the ports of Vancouver,

weekly leave shall be five-tenths (.5) of one

(b) When schedules and traffic conditions permit,
these employees shall be granted the two and
one-half (2%) days' off in each week. When
it is inconvenient to grant this weekly leave
when due, it shall be allowed to accumulate
and be granted at a later date. Where conditions

allowed in the Ports of Vancouver, Victoria or

basiss-
Twenty-four (24) hours free of the
ship shall constitute one (1) day's
leave.
Aside from the increase from .4 per day worked for
each day worked and the cost of providing relief for the
additional weekly leave, the Union's demand would also
result in a large increase in the overtime rate.  The

Mr. J. Yates'
Re,; Mpvement of Rail Cars into Elk Falls
GENERAL
As you are aware. Hooker Chemicals barge "Hyak King,"
presently carries rail cars ex Pier A-l via Gulf of Georgia
Towing to Crown Zellerbach at Elk Falls.
The "Hyak King" is a short barge with poor stability during
loading; consequently, derailments have occurred. The danger
is that many of the cars being handled are carrying caustic
material. Hooker Chemicals have expressed concern and have
indicated to Crown Zellerbach that effective January 1,
1976, when their present contract expires, they will only
load the "Hyak King" at their site in North Vancouver. This
means that all cars originating on CP Lines will have to be
interchanged at Sapperton for delivery to C.N. thence Hooker,
ian additional cost of approximately $200.00 per car. CP
Rail Will issue a directive shortly that the "Hyak King"
can only be worked during daylight hours, and as 12 feet
of water is required to work the barge, you can appreciate
the difficulties*
Mr. Aitken and I have been working closely with Mr. Bates,
Marketing and Sales, and Mr. Jim Black, Traffic Manager,
Crown Zellerbach, with respect to handling these cars on
the "Seaspan Doris" ex Vancouver Saturday 1000. We are of
the opinion that this would be a profitable venture for
the B.C.C.S.

SLIP - ELK FALLS
The slip at Elk Falls is very short and operation is therefore
governed by tide. There are 16 feet of water at low tide.
The "Seaspan Doris" is able to ballast quickly and tide should
not be a major factor. We can make our stop north or south,
depending on the tide.  Elk Falls has a diesel locomotive,
and efficient service can be expected with respect to loading
and unloading of rail cars.

LOADING WITH RAIL  (Cont'd.)
"Seaspan T>nris."    Due to weight of cars we will have to load
Tracks 2 end 3 - three cars each track.    This will mean most
or the Beaver Cove trailers will have to be placed on the
top deck.    Mobile Home traffic will have to be curtailed,
and depending on the amount of rail offering, possibly refused or put off to the following trip.    On heavy sailings
it is possible we will make a stop at Elk Falls north, discharge rail and proceed to Kelsey Bay and Beaver Cove and pick
up empties at Elk Falls south.
Crown Zellerbach will not permit the loading or unloading of
trucks and trailers at Elk Falls on a regular basis,  due to
possible interference from the Pulp Workers.
aflfflWftE; PROBLEMS
In view of uncertainty of tides,  size of loads, etc., the
"Seaspan Doris" cannot be expected to return from her NEVI
trip until early Monday morning.     In order to ensure our
Nanaimo traffic is protected,  the   unday night trip of the
"Seaspan Doris" to Nanaimo oust be cancelled and picked up
by the  'Carrier Princess"    Monday 1000.    We will have to
continue payment, of $2,270.00 for  "seaspan Doris," and
this can be applied to additional costs or time attributed
to NEVI run.     "Carrier Princess" will operate Monday 1000
at out-of-£ocfeefc expense to the BCCS of  $750.00.
ALTERNATE SERVICE

ALTERNATE SERVICE (Cont'd.)
The  "Trailer Princess" will fit El^Falls slip 'with some
modifications,  and it is  feasible to load two centre tracks
on this vessel from centre track off slip.    Modification
could be made to tracks on slip *to enable Tracks 1 and 4
to be loaded.    Biggest drawback is 850-ton load limit of
"Trailer Princess," or six saltcake cars;! no room for growth.
The  Trailer" cannot- ballast quickly to adjust for tide, and.
this also will be a problem.    The  "Trailer" could be held
as a possible backup,  or to cover any additional trips required by Crown Zellerbach.
RECOMMENDATION ,
We have a contract drawn up with CroWn Zellerbach to handle
the movement of ALL saltcake. alum, sulpher products, and
miscellaneous oars from Vancouver Pier A-l or A-3 to Elk
Falls, one trip per week. BCCS guarantees space for six
cars per trip, additional oars to be handled if convenient
to BCCS. Minimum charge $.1,000.00 per call at Elk Falls
if "Seaspan Doris" on regular trip. Special trips to be
arranged at additional costs. In event tide does not permit or interfere with loading or unloading at Elk Falls,
Crown Zellerbach will be responsible 'for all out-i-of-pocket
expenses incurred by. the B.C.C.S., charges for alum to
remain as at--present; balance saltcake, sulpher, $250.00
per .car; miscellaneous-as at present. Term of contract -
12 months. Mr. Cairns advises possible regulations forthcoming concerning handling of dangerous commodities in
rail oars on barges and self-propelled-barges, with respect
to tis-down arrangements, and Crotm Zellerbach should pay
any out-of-pocket expense required to handle their traffic.

to $500.00.
During negotiations, the Company agreed to this demand.
The Union demanded that the following provision be
added to the present Article 2, Section 14 and to read
"Sub-section (b)":-
Tradesmen or crew members who are required
to provide their own tools shall receive up
to an additional two hundred and fifty dollars
($250.00) for the value of the loss of such
tools.
As the Company does not require crew members to provide
their own tools and if circumstances ever warranted the use of
tools in line with Company practice such tools would be
provided by the Company.  It is therefore recommended that the
Board deny this demand.
34.   Wages and Overtime (Article 3)
The Union demanded the following:-
Basic monthly rate to be increased one
hundred and fifty dollars ($150.00) across
the board. This is to reflect increases
in wages, basic monthly and hourly rates,
overtime rates and pro-rated vacation pay.
The Union's demand is exorbitant and the Company so
advised the Union.

Memoraiidum ■-
Mr. J. Yates
Clem Aitken and I met with Bernie Hoeschen with respect
to proposed 15% increase truck and trailer traffic effective
January 1, 1976.
He was of the firm opinion that to issue Tariff 9 as it
stands would in effect foe "leading with our chins:»* He
stated increase should be limited to meat net increases in
costs and that we should prepare a model; vis.
Average cut cost of operating one ship. Show increase in operation, taking fuel, crew, terminals,
lay days, etc. Base increase in tariff on this.
Submit layout to Montreal for approval before
issuance.
Cbpy of Price ^Jaberhouse report on this subject attached.
After speaking to Bernie we approached John Duncan, Marketing and Sales, Rates. He Stated no official guidelines om -a
increasing rates from Montreal. Marketing andSeles advised
all their shippers in writing of pending increase January
1, 1976, prior to guidelines established by Federal and
Provincial Governments. They are going ahead on this basis,
but expect further increases in 1976/77 will have to be
supported and within guidelines.
Notice to Shippers and Tariff No. 9 being held pending
your further advice.
