30 THE IETKBRIDGE HERAID Saturday, April 14, 1973 Air routes decision expected; within two weeks TtflttrrX A tf A A By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment is to an- nounce within weeks its new division of international air routes between Air Can- ada and CP Air. The statement will clear the way for further discussions with European nations on new air routes, say government sources. It should also settle the long dispute about whether Air Canada or CP Air should get the new route to Milan, Italy. The government has spent almost a year making up its mind on the Milan issue. A bi- lateral air agreement was signed with Italy last May permitting a Canadian airline to land at Milan in exchange for landing nghts m Toronto for the Italian air carrier, Ali- talia. Alitalia has been operating to Toronto since last Novem- ber and say; it has done It is understood that discus- sions with European countries such as the Netherlands about new air agreements have been set aside until announce- ment of the new government statement on air routes for CP Air and Air Canada.

ON TEf.tPORARY BASIS CP Air and KLM now oper- ate between the two countries on temporary permits. The Netherlands has had to wait while Canada negotiated agreements with Italy and Germany. Government sources said there were obvious benefits to concluding agreements with Germany and new routes for Canadian car- riers. But they said it is more difficult to see the value of a new run to the Netherlands. Ottawa wants something equal in economic value to landing rights in Toronto. But, now that Alitalia and the German airline Lufthansa have permission to land in To- ronto, talks will probably open with the Netherlands Aside from the Italian and German carriers, the British air carrier BOAC is the only other overseas airline allowed to land in Toronto. Other for- eign carriers land in Mont- real The government announced its overseas air policy in June, 1965, dividing the world into geographical areas which were handed out to CP Air and Air Canada. ROUTES DIVIDED CP Air was given the Pa- cific region, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, southern and southeastern Europe and Latin America. Air Canada vi as assigned the United King- don, western, northern and eastern Europe and the Carib- bean. The only exception was the CP Air route to Amsterdam. This remained in CP Air hands though it was in Air Canada territory. Africa was left untouched as there was no interest in serv- ing the continent at that time.

Transport Minister J e a B Marchand said in the Com mons March 26 that the gov- ernment statement on interna- tional routes will not be a new policy. But he said it could be a "new division of the world." The minister said that the statement would certainly clarify for the airlines what markets they serve. The transport minister is a strong supporter of Air Can- ada. He said last summer that it was "an abuse" to let CP Air fly to Europe at all because that territory should belong to Air Canada, the Crown corpo- ration. That was before he be- came transport minister. FAVORS AIR CANADA In a Commons speech March 23, he reiterated his belief that Air Canada should be the dominant carrier on in- ternational routes. He said that while Air Can- ada is guaranteed 75 per cent of the Canadian air passenger market by the government, there is no limit established in the foreign field The transport minister said it is conceivable that CP Air might seize the major share of the international market. Mr. Marchand said Air Can- ada should not have competi- tion on the same international routes from CP Air. That is the basis of the 1965 air pol- icy. The transport minister took it a step further to say CP Air flights to Amsterdam amount to competition with Air Can- ada flights to other European centres If the forthcoming state- ment reflects the minister's feelings, CP Air might lose Amsterdam. Montana teachers protest HELENA, Mont. (AP) Some 200 public school teach- ers at Helena have demon- strated at the school adminis- tration building in support of contract demands The teachers carried signs calling for a resumption of ne- gotiations. They walked nearly an hour despite blustery winds and a light rain. The educators are not on strike. But they say further demonstrations will take place to protest the school board's setting of salary schedules for next year without teacher as- sociation approval. Air Canada, CP Air battle over routes JUNEAlf, Alaska (AP) This year's Calavares County frog jumping contest may be won by an Alaskan amphibian obeying sled dog commands. Handlers for Alaska plan ot train their four-inch entry, "Mr. Seward's to heed cries of "gee" and "haw." Folly, as he is known in state government, will carry Alas- ka's banner to Angels Camp, Calif., under the guidance of "frog jockey" Lee Ann Bel- arde, an aide to Nevada Gov. Mke O'Callaghan. Miss Belarde, an Anchorage, Alaska girl volunteered to guide Folly through the "gov- ernors' jump" competition Though Mark Twain who dreamed up the contest commands didn't plan it that way, Alaska is banking on Folly's intelli- gence and sled dog order for victory May 13. Alaska Gov. William A. Egan says orders of 'which sled dogs interpret as "gee" turn right and "haw" turn left will confuse other more ignorant frogs.

By RICHARD JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau says he is in- creasing the French Canadian content of the federal public service by six per cent, while, at the same time, protecting the job and promotion nghts of 'career" English Canadians. A "career" begins after 10 years on the job. With its new Language Act resolution and the public serv- ice bilingual guidelines, Mr. Trudeau believes his govern- ment is honoring "The Pearson Pledge." That pledge, given by former Prime Minister Lester Pearson when introducing the bilingual program some seven years ago, was that "no career public ser- vant would suffer because of language requirements." Mr. Trudeau, in turn took the same pledge, five years ago, promising that no unilingual government emplyee would find his career damaged by bilin- gualism. The thrust of the guidelines- giving some career protection to of the resolu- tion increasing the French-Ca- nadian content of the govern- ment staff from 21.7 to 28 pec cent, is two-fold. The way Treasury Board President Drury spelled it out, it is to quiet the fears of the English unilinguals of career prejudice, and to encourage French unilinguals to qualify for federal jobs. The English are to be reas- sured by the nine principles of the guidelines, particularly the "grandfather clause" which protects the job rights and pro- motions of those umlinguaJs in the public service for 10 years. The French are to be encour- aged by an Drury refused to specify num- bers or the 450- odd unilingual French-speaking units now in the public service. Only 100 of these are outside Quebec, revealed Mr. Drury in saying there are "not nearly enough in the National Capital Area" With this sort of a give-and- take compromise, something for both language groups, the Prime Minister said he "hoped to get unanimous support in Parliament" for his language resolution. He insisted he wasn't "press- ing" to hurry through the legis- lation, but like Mr. Drury, ex- pected the House might deal with it after the Budget income tax provisions. Would he force a vote on it? "I've never given it a he replied. Then would he permit the res- olution to be "talked out" with- out coming to a vote. "It -won't be talked he replied. There could be a third way around leave the issue hanging fire after discussion in the Commons. This was a different approach than he recently has taken to the issue. Previously he had threatened to use his resolution to smoke out certain un-named Opposi- tion MPs who, he charged, in the last election and since, had been hiding behind "ambi- guities." He had inem of say- ing, yes, of course we are for the principle of bilingualism, but against its imposition. He has said it would be "hard" for some MPs, but that Cowboy dies at Calgary CALGARY 'CP) Johnj "Red" CaJbcart, 3 cowboy, j mountain pnckcr.
