But Mr. Hamilton, a Die- fenbaker cabinet member in the late 1950s and early 60s, esti- mates even patches of it are a LOSE INCHES IN NINETY RELAXING MINUTES THE NEW, EASY WAY Figure Trim Guarantee You ii lose 2 inches overall on your first visit, and 5 inches by your fifth or your money will be refunded in full.

Not only that, he said in an interview Thursday, much of the panhandle should have been Canada's in the first place. In 1903, he said, Canada was double-crossed representative by on the British a six-man commission drawing the Can- ada-Alaska border. There were three Americans, two Canadians and one Brilou on the commission. Mr. Ham- ilton said the British member supported the American plan to place the boundary 25 miles back from the Pacific, cutting northwestern British Columbia off from the ocean. FIGHT FOR ACCESS He said Canada should bpr- gain hard with the United States for rail rights-of-way to the ocean and for large parcels of land on which to build Cana- dian ports. Railways and ports were needed to move valuable natu- ral resources out of the Yukon, northwestern B.C. and even the Northwest Territories. LETHBRIDGE B.O.P.

Hchol Minister of Manpower and Labour Room 423, Legislative Building EDMONTON, Alberta MANPOWER AND LABOUR "The Americans periodically ask us to pave our end of the Alaska Highway. I say, sure we'll pave the highway, if you give us access through the pan- handle." Another leverage was not to sell any more natural gas to the U.S. until it agreed to negotiate panhandle access. The White Pass and Yukon Railway now takes some re- sources the 100 miles from Whitehorse to Skagway, on the panhandle. But why spend a lot of money in an American port, asked Mr. Hamilton, when it could be used to develop our own? His idea is to get the United States to grant perpetual rail access and large tracts of coaaiai land, lie d even settle for the rights-of-way and enough land for one port as a start. Plan new plant VANCOUVER (CP) Millan Blcedel Ltd. announced today a new corrugated con- tainer plant will be built in the Edmonton area by its wholly- owned subsidiary, MacMUlan Bloedel Packaging Ltd.

Construction is scheduled to start in mid-summer and the new installation is to be fin- ished in the spring of 1974.

OTTAWA (CP) Canada would be better off with fewer regional airlines, suggests Vic- tory Emery, national marketing director for Air Canada. Mr. Emery told reporters here Wednesday that there arc too manj- air carriers com- peting for too few passengers on domestic routes in Canada. "It isn't any secret that we all feel it is pretty be said. Mr. Emery was briefing re- porters on Canada rate pol- icy for domestic routes. He also was questioned on other issues involving the Crown corpo- ration. The, Air Canada executive said he will be meeting with groups across the country in coming months to discuss Air Canada rates and hear views as to the role the corporation should be playing in He said he would be dis- cussing his findings with top Air Canada officials and this may help in talks with the federal government on the domestic role of the corporation. Mr. Emery said it would be "inappropriate for this country to have only cne carrier." There wcre "certain in- efficiencies" when one airline monopolized domestic routes. He said Air Canada manages to maintain a good balance with CP Air on national routes with- CP Air having 25 per cent cf the traffic under government policy. "To have five othar carriers is acother he said. all have ,iet equipment asd all have ambiticn to get on mainline routes." Under government policy, five regional carriers are allowed to supplement the ac- tivities of the two main car- riers, CP Air and Air Canada, in specific regions. The five re- gional airlines are Eastern Pro- Quebecair, and Pacific vincial Airlines, Nordair. Transair Western Airlines. "Presumably it would be ad- vantageous to Canada if there was some Emery said. He said Air Canada favors competition only where there is enough passenger traffic to jus- tify it. He suggested reducing the number of regional airlines to three. Consumers received less service when there was stiff competition for new passengers. Mr. Emery said Air Canada's new domestic fares introduced lest October have increased the efficiency of the airline and more people were using it.
