■Dear sin
Ret  MR. & MRS. PAUL ZAfrgkS|KI -PRINCESS PATRICIA - AUG. 27/75
Afith reference to the above named, who occupied room
142 on our Alaska Cruise - vancovver/skagway and return,
covered by your M.C.O. 018-4010-221-846, value Cdn.
$1,194.00.
For your information, Mr. & Mrs. iSawaakl were under
the inqpression from your Office room 142 contained
two lowers or beds • - shower and toilet and shown picture
of room containing twin-beds, which are Deluxe Rooms
"on "Line I*». ,
l'y     ,.,y,     ". y    1 -;- A<y       A /^ l-0.
From.the enclosed folder, which we have marked for
your future guidance, you will observe room 142 has-i(,
an Upper and Lower Berth only and not two lowers or
beds. As passengers were upset regarding room 142, we
arranged to show them room 154 (§1,386.00) account cancellation was available and contained two lowers,, shower
and toilet and advised extra collection of $192.00 was
required for this room. Mr. aawaski was not agreeable
to this? thavb^ account being assured room 142 had two
lowers.
Therefore, under the circumstances, we transferred
this couple to room 154 at no extra charge and believe
they were satisfied and will enjoy their trip.
In view of the above, kindly advise us in future if
clients desire room with two lowers or beds.
Sincerely,
Manager,
sncl.

Dear Sirs:'
»•« tt*V«, »ne,an pc. Lfurm|
We.have received from Wagner Engineering Led. a copy of their
"Guarantee fcr Defective Machinery" along with an Invoice #14462
to the amount of #160.00 of which 1 aa enclosing for your attention.
Wagner Engineering Ltd. maintain that somewhere along the line,
someone should be charged for all expenditures incurred by then
if corrective measures are taken to rectify defective items outside
of normal working hours.
Since we operate our vessels on a 24 hour day, seven day week basis,
we cannot be expected to lay-over a vessel which requires attention
to a defective item or items to comply with a request.that states
"repeir to guarantee items will be carried out during normal working
houra*'.
The problems of Vaguer Engineering products are directly dtim to
faulty workmanship and I feel that they should bear the cost of
any expense regardless as to when they carry out their repairs.
In addition, they should check these pumps aa  to whether or not these
seals were damaged due to faulty machining. Seal damage was similar
and could have been due to the seal landing not being concentric to
the pump spindle.
Yours truly,
T. KING

On August 26, 1975, at Nanaimo, 1:30 p.m. sailing, Mr. Harold J.
McCormack claims damage was done to the front of his boat when
boarding the ferry.
Will you kindly obtain a statement from Able Seaman, J. Maxwell.
Mr. McCormack states that Mr. Maxwell was very helpful in his
direction and is not blaming him but states damage occurred due to
the fact that he was ordered to drive on forward when he advised the
Agent at Nanaimo that it would be better if he backed on.

There seems to bo some difference of opinion in actual
fare paid by Mr* Banhara, and would appreciate your contacting him in an endeavour to clarify same,
wa have had great difficulty with trucks as opposed to
campers being used for recreational purposes, but tariffs
indicate only 3/4-ton trucks are considered as passenger
rated. While passenger was incorrectly advised that the
"Princess of Vancouver" 4:00 a.m. sailing was a commercial
sailing, obviously because of the size of his truck he
was charged the going rate of $34.00, and not $28.00.
Wo regret any inconvenience caused this passenger, should
there have boon a lack of information given your office
at the time of booking. However, as passenger originally
made reservations for oar and trailer, in no way does
this compare with a truck, unless he was not aware of the
actual tonnage of same and implied it was a 3/4-ton truck*

Thank you kindly for your latter of August 1st recently received in this office, concerning the success of the former "Princess Louise" Alaska cruise
ship as a public restaurant in the Los Angeles area,
and of your further request concerning "Princess"
vessels.
You may not have heard that Canadian pacific sold to
the B.C. Government its "Princess Marguerite," which
formerly was in service between Victoria and Seattle
during the summer season under Canadian Pacific flag,
but which how is operated by the B.C. Government in
similar service.
At tho present time there is no consideration by this
Company to sell any of its current vessels.
Regarding the "Princess Elaine," we understand she has
been moved from the Seattle area and is somewhere on tha
South Coast, but regret we have not been able to determine
at what point*

crew experience, and Betty and Terry Haswell's entertainment,
which wi.ll be supplemented by additional musicians in order
that dancing nay be available both in the Dining Room and
in the Baidaway Lounge.
Call at Seattle is both for those people interested in pre-
Christmas shopping, also sightseeing. The Seattle tour Will
not be included in the cruise fare, but shuttle bus for
passengers desirous of going uptown for shopping will be
free c
It will be appreciated if you will kindly arrange to work
up material for radio and newspaper coverage in the Lower

We are now prepared to accept reservations, as soon as
advertising gets under way.
Upon departure from Seattle, the "Patricia" will sail
for Seymour Narrows and will cruise in that area and
adjacent waters. Depending upon weather conditions,
Pendry Harris \fill  pretty well play it by ear as to what
he does and where he goes, including going up Howe Sound
on the return journey, so this is not only a fun trip,
but perhaps can be classed as a bit of a mystery cruise
also.

Dear Mr. Cooper:
This refers to attached invoice No. 351104 covering
Beaver Cove Service for July 1975.
While the July 9-10 trip was cancelled, nevertheless
the vessel was used in service between Vancouver and
Nanaimo.
In connection with the July 23-24 and July 30-31
trips, the cancellations were due to the forest industry dispute, and it has been agreed with Mr.
Lindsay that these trips can be cancelled without
penalty during the present dispute.
With regard to the last two items for tug assists and
grid charges, these items are not for our account,
and it is suggested that you contact Haida Freightways.
Will you kindly submit a new invoice.
Yours very truly.

Gentlemen*
It was reported to me by the Chief Engineer aboard
the "CSrrler Princess." that the bow thrueter •capitol1
reverse reduction gear box has signs of a near-future
failure, in that numerous metal particles were found
in the lubricating oil filter.
According to a letter to you of January 14, 1974, with
reference to the above gear hem, it appears this type
of gear box should not have been fitted for this service, in that it is not built to sustain long periods
of working in the reverse direction, a necessity subject to docking and manoeuvring of this vessel.
This item of machinery has not been fully acceptable
since fitted, and X feel that any servicing and/or
repairs due to protracted failure of same, should remain in the warranty of defective items clause.
Also, as soon as practicable, this gear box should be
inspected, as the previous failure necessitated a
period of 10 days for repairs.

Dear Mrs, Sahlstrom:
This concerns your letter of July 20, In which you request
repayment of U.S. Railroad Retirement Board deductions.
The $5,00 per month deduction is made by the U.S. Government
for all Canadian Pacific employees operating in American
waters. It virtually takes the form of e tax and, therefore,
is not refundable. Retirement benefits would only be paid
if you had completed 120 months (10 years) service.
With regerd to your Social Security number, kindly write to
the U.S. Railroad Retirement Board at 844 Rush Street,
Chicago, Illinois 60811, U.S.A., and they may be eble to
locate it for you. Also, they will answer any further questions
you asy have regarding refund of your contributions or other
benefits but ss I have already explained, I doubt very much
whether you are eligible for same.
Sorry I cannot be more helpful.

Re: Alaska 1976 - Mrs. D. ERUCKSlEKEPv.& PAftTY
Reference our telephone conversation.
We are enclosing photostat copy of letter received from
this lady, mimeograph sheets, giving rates and schedule
of "princess Patricia* 1976 season.
You will note, she is requesting special rate; concessions are only granted to Travel Agents, i.e.
10-24 adults - 50% reduction would be allowed on cms
minimum fare plus premium if superior room involved and
it appears from letter this is not the case. Regular
tariff rate would apply.
When you secure date of travel, wa would set up file
and actual assignment of space for 1976 probably will
commence about November or December 1975.
Thank you for your assistance Dorothy.

Dear Mr. Baird*
Thank you for your letter of August llth concerning
the inconvenience you allege you experienced regarding
the making of an automobile reservation through our
CP Ferries reservation office.
We are very surprised to learn that you were informed
you could pick up your reservation in Nanaimo, in view
of explicit instructions to our staff to the contrary*
as this is only permitted where extenuating circumstances prevent theprepurchase in Vancouver of transportation from Nanaimo to Vancouver.
Why we speak strongly concerning this matter, is that
the incidence of "No Shows" has been so alarming*
stringent measures have had to be taken in order to
protect the perishable nature of our product* "No
Shows" result from people who reserve car spaces, and
then through lack of courtesy do not cancel same when
arrangements are altered* m any event, if you were
given permission to pick up your accommodation in
Nanaimo, you would have been informed there was an -.
option time of at least the day before, or at the
outside* one hour prior to sailing* Because of the
foregoing, spaces not picked up prior to an hour before,
are automatically resold by our Nanaimo Ticket Office*
should spaas be required*
On receipt of your letter we immediately spoke to our
Reservation Supervisor, who has assured us that these
instructions are being adhered to by reservation staff.

I have today been personally presented with a claim for
$64.20 by a Mrs. M. Beavls, covering repairs to her 1965
Acadian auto, which had the maffler.and tailpipe torn
off while boarding your vessel on the upper deck, 1200
sailing, July 21st.
Mrs. Beavls apparently received assistance in tying up
the damaged parte by an Officer or seaman at the time.
However, no report has been received in this connection,
and I would appreciate receiving same ae quickly aa
possible, in order that I can properly assess the merits
of thia claim.

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Reedmam
Further to my letter of August 7th concerning your
letter of July 9th*
I have now completed my investigation with ship's
personnel regarding your complaint, and will answer
the points raised in your letter as followst
The officer on duty in charge of automobile loading
at the time in question, is an employee of fine
character and he has assured me that under no circumstances did he uee foul language or make rude remarks
to any of our patrons* If such remarks were made to
you* I am very certain they were not made by any of
our staff on duty.
It is not the practice for our employees to assist
patrons in directing their oars on the approach ramp*
because of the good visibility and the large area in
which to manoeuvre* These men only direct parking in
close-quarter situations, where they may exist cm
board the vessel, and the two people with flashlights
to whom you refer, were the two seamen directing load*
ing on board. No other personnel are permitted to
direct traffic.

File No. 75.ALA.521.3.J.
Mr. Henry H. Jebe, Jr.
315 Cordova street
San Francisco, Calif. 94112.
Dear Mr. Jebe:
Thank you kindly for your letter of August 3rd querying the rate of exchange charged you in connection with
your JUne 16th Alaska cruise aboard the "Princess
Patricia."
In our letter of July 24th we advised that the rate of
exchange at the time the deposit is paid on ah Alaska
reservation by a U.S. resident, is the exchange rate , T
carried through final ticketing, in view of the fluctuation between the Canadian and U.S. dollar, making it , n
impossible to update rates on every given change of the
exchange. l' ry
Ambassador Tours forwarded to this office in early April,
deposit of $200.00 U.S. to confirm Cabin 228 which had
been assigned Mrs. Jebe and yourself June 16th. At that
time the Canadian dollar was at a premium of 1%  in relation to the U.S. dollar as advised by Vice-President,
Finance, CP Rail, for the acceptance of U.S. funds in
Canada, Accordingly, the rate applicable to your accommodation was $1321.21 U.S., 1% being $13.21 deducted from
^the fpgegoing amount, equalling $1308.00 Canadian funds,
as is shown in our Canadian tariff. Had the Canadian f
dollar progressed more favourably in relation to the U,S,
dollar, we would not have requested art additional amount
to compensate for same, and this rate of exchange became
basic with the issuance of Deposit Receipt BCS 17 No,
12833, which was held ortffile in this office until final
payment was received-, '
•. •.,
 - 12 -
ARTICLE 10 (contd.)
the maximum amount stipulated in
Clause 10.2, or such lesser1 amount
as is required to pay the premium
or tax in such province; or
(b)    If he is resident in a province
where no medicare premium or medicare
tax is required, shall not be
eligible for payment of any amount.

ARTICLE 11
JOB SECURITY AND TECHNOLOGICAL,
OPERATIONAL AND ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE
11.1     The provisions of the Job Security and Technological, Operational and Organizational Change Agreement
effective July 1, 1971 between certain Canadian Railways
and The Associated Railway Unions representing non-
operating employees, to which the Company and the Union
are signatories, shall apply to employees in positions
covered by this agreement.  Benefits and conditions attached
to the payment thereof are summarized in Appendix "A" of
this Agreement.
ARTICLE 12
TRANSFER AND TRAVELLING TIME
12.1 Employees appointed to a position necessitating
travelling from Victoria to Vancouver, or vice-versa, to
assume that position, shall be furnished with transportation
and meals.
12.2 Except for new employees, such employees shall be
on full pay from the starting point.
12.3 When employees are transferred from one ship to
another at the Company's convenience, and such transfer
necessitates a lay over awaiting ship, such employees shall be
paid at their regular rates of pay during such lay over.  This
will not apply to employees who are transferred from one ship
to another at their own request.

Please bear in mind that the exchange basis affecting
the issuance of tickets in Canada is that quoted in
Canada, and could conceivably vary with that which may
be shown in U.S. periodicals and/or banks. The balance
of $1121.21 U.S. funds mentioned in your letter, is
therefore the correct amount due the Travel Agency* being
less the $200.00 deposit originally paid to secure
reservations. The actual difference in exchange is
$13,21, being the difference between $1308,00 Canadian
and $1321.21 U.S., as charged.
As fares are quoted in Canadian funds, the best possible
exchange basis can be secured by purchase in the United
States of a bank draft payable in Canadian funds at the
going rate of exchange, but as this does impose additional
work on Travel Agencies, it is not always possible for
them to so arrange,
■We trust the foregoing will answer the questions raised
in your letter.
Your3 very truly.

This company's Agreement with the Victoria Canadian Pacific
Maintenance Workers* Federal Union, Local 493, provides for
Job Security and Technological, Operational and Organisational
Change, Article 11.1 — copy is attached.
Due to the withdrawal from service of our veaael the "Princess
Marguerite" the Victoria Shops were closed and three shop employees
claimed severance pay in accordance with the Agreement.
It transpired that this Department had to make good the payments
as, apparently, we did not apply for inclusion of thia Onion in the
Job Security Plan when it first came into effect.
We have a similar Shop Union located in Vancouver (Vancouver Canadian
Pacific Shipyard Workers' Union, Local 1552, C.L.C), copy of Agreement
also attached, which has provision for Job Security benefits,
I  understand that this too is rtot covered by the Job Security fund.
I am unaware aa to why this was not done when the Job Security Plan
was originally set up but presume it had something to do with the
small number of employees involved. Will you kindly advise whether
it is possible at thia late date to have Vancouver Shops covered by
the fund and if so, what steps we have to take at this end.

we are returning 1975 maps, and would advise that
while Canadian Pacific is no longer operating any ferry
service between Victoria and Seattle, and Victoria and
Port Angeles, the "Princess Marguerite," formerly owned
by our Company, was purchased by the British Columbia
Government and is operating a similar service to that
previously provided by us, under the company name of
"Princess Marguerite (1975) Limited."
CP Rail continues to operate service between Vancouver

Memorandum
Mr, J. Yates
OFFICE STAFF
At the beginning of this year, CP Rail advised us that
they wouid no longer be responsible for handling of BCCSS
refunds, ticket printing and distribution, lost baggage,
and auto claims•
Not having a real appreciation of the work involved in
these matters, and in view of the additional files and
ticketing which must be handled by the Alaska section,
also by reason of CP Rail's decision not to handle BCCSS
reservations except in cases where a rail haul is involved,
I decided to assume personally, the responsibility for
these tasks to evaluate the amount of work entailed*
Since receipt of money orders commencing with April 22nd
to date of August 7th, we have handled 157 separate refund claims, a number of which involved multiple Alaska
tickets with complicated refund calculations. I was not
able to do these during the normal working day and
arranged the actual work-up of the files on weekends at
home. Money orders were typed either by Miss Bussell or
Mrs. KUsch. There is a fair amount of accounting associated
with the money orders that is time consuming as well.
Today we have received 24 separate ticket requisitions from
offices across Canada and on Vancouver Island, who continue to stock BCCSS tickets, and the number of tickets
supplied on these requisitions totals 65,000* Keeping
the. ticket stock up to date and the records associated
with same, is also time consuming.

Lost Baggage - The number of items received since January
1st is in excess of 50, ranging from suitcases to articles
of. clothing,, cameras, crutches, eyeglasses, name it. Each
item has to he registered: goods forwarded to people if on
hand; arrangsmenta made for the disposition of outstanding
articles after three months, which again, is time consuming.
There is sufficient work in connection with the foregoing
alone, to warrant a general office clerk, but in addition,
there is the handling of incoming and outgoing mail; proper
filing, and additional typing for winter holiday relief.
Bearing in mind that the Stenographer C-5 position was eliminated
last spring, I feel that by reason of the assumption of the
aforementioned duties the position of Clerk, Grade C-4, is
warranted, and the duties enumerated fall within the classification of the job description sample sheet covering non-
schedule clerical and associated office positions dated
April 12, 1973.
Zt will be appreciated if this matter could be discussed
with Mr. Margetts for approval.

The information supplied you waa from our Payroll Records and

Clerk, We have no record of paying Mr, Hayward after October 22,
1941, He may be quite correct when he says that he left the ship
on September 21, 1941, aa payment from that date to October 22
could have been annual vacation or other leave time,(it is considered
that the Seamans Book would be the best possible evidence). Neither
would we contest employee's statement that he was transferred and
not resigned, am  staff record keeping at that time regrettably left
much to be deairad, particularly as staff forms were not alwaya

Dear Mr., Boschi
This has reference to your letter JUly 25th concerning
your trip on our ferry from Nanaimo to Vancouver on
July 21st.
The vessel on which you travelled was the "Carrier
Princess," which is essentially a truck and trailer
ferry, but is provided with passenger accommodation
and facilities, and is used to supplement our regular
Nanaimo service during the summer season.
It has always been the practice of cur Ticket Office
employees to inform patrons who are booking space or
purchasing tickets for travel on this ship, that it
is necessary to ascend a long flight of stairs to the
passenger deck and that cafeteria service only is
available.
Passenger tariffs are established to provide patrons
with the fastest possible service between two points,
and do not relate to other facilities available. In
this regard 1 would point out that there is a considerable difference in the type of accommodation and
facilities on the older and newer "stretched" B.C.
Ferries, taut the fares are the same.
The prices charged for food and beverages in the cafeteria on the "Carrier Princess,*' are compatible with
those for similar service on B.C. Ferries and are in
line with other oafeteria-style establishments.

of the foregoing, return to service on the day

Dear Mr. Musielt
We have for acknowledgment your letter of July 15th
concerning our participation in the production of an
Alaska port film, similar to that which is being
sponsored by the Juneau Chamber.
While we appreciate the interest of Westours in bringing this to the attention of all shipping companies
and the inclusion of Canadian Pacific Rail, a review
by both ship's personnel and our own office staff
would indicate that our shipboard presentations, including the use of film, sufficiently meet our requirements, to the satisfaction of our passengers; therefore, we respectfully decline your offer of
participation.
In appreciation of your continued interest in Alaska
toy bringing this feature to our attention.
Yours very truly,
J. YATES

TO ALL EMPLOYEES:
Circular No. SP-148
Kindly note the following:
Under the revised Canadian Pacific Limited Pension Plan, an
employee who has accumulated 70 units ceases to contribute to
the Plan.  The question has arisen as to the status of such
an employee under a Registered Retirement Savings Plan.
The Technical Interpretations Division of Revenue Canada has
confirmed that an employee, on attaining the maximum allowable
service and ceasing to be permitted to contribute to the
Canadian Pacific Pension Plan, is eligible to make tax-deductible
contributions to a Registered Retirement Savings Plan to the
lesser of 20% of earned income or $4,000, provided no contributions
have been made to the Canadian Pacific Pension Plan or any other
private pension plan during that taxation year.
