District Kimberley strike still at KIMBERLEY 'Staff) A Cominco official said Thurs the longest strike ever ex- perienced here is as far from settlement as it was when it started one month ago 'It is a month since it started and things are much the same as when it started said the official "Things are very quiet No meetings are scheduled Meanwhile, Local 651 of the United Steelworkers gave its 1100 striking members strike pay and an increased food hamper recently and most members seem happier with the allotment than they were with the one a week earlier Along with the strike pay the same foi all members each striking Steelworker received a food hamper based on the number of dependents in his family The weekly grocery package for a family of four this week included one pound of coffee or tea, three pounds of margarine, three tins evaporated milk four loaves of bread, three packages of breakfast cereal, five pounds of spaghetti, four tins of pork and beans three dozen eggs, three quarts of milk, four pounds of ground beef, five pounds of sugar two pounds of cheese, and four pounds of frozen vegetables The food hamper was sub- stantially increased from the week before Another change in the un- ion s food distribution has been single people and married couples each m own category Earlier single people and couples received the same amount of food Last week the phone was ringing off the wall with com- plaints said Lino Sacilotto union local president 'This week we have received only one complaint' The international sector of the union has begun contributing its portion to the strike fund The international sector provides 000 per week for the duration of the strike while the local is responsible for contributing 000 per week The total of 000 per week is used to buy groceries and the money left over is divided equally among all members tor strike pav This is the first time the Steelworkers have organized a food distribution for its members during a strike This is the longest strike that the Steelworkers have experienced here The only other strike under the Steelworkers' jurisdiction was a two week walkout in 1972 Previous strikes here include a weekend stoppage under the International Union of Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers in 1966 and a strike in 1919 when the Western Federation of Miners was the bargaining agent for Cominco workers TABER (Staff) Ten ballots were returned by the 42- member Taber Businessmen's Association on the shopping hours controv ersy and the indifference has caused president Joe Orban Jr to threaten his resignation Six ballots favored the town shopping bylaw being left as it now stands authorizing stores to open from 8am to 6 p m Monday through Saturdav with the exception of a half day clos- ing Wednesday Four ballots suggested the be rescinded and businessmen be left free to establish their own hours Local merchants are plagued with a nagging fear that a shopping centre may be launched here The> worrj shopping centre operators may ignore the closing Some day a big shopping centre is going to come in and the town is going to wake up so fast said Roy How at a recent TBA meeting attended by about six people Town councillor Dennis Turin told fellow TBA members The tow n has a bylaw that stands up in court Mr Orban expressed frustration at the low turnout of members to meetings and the poor return of shopping hour ballots If there aren 115 people at the next meeting that s it for me said Mr Orban In '73-'74 CP moved 74 million bushels Canadian railways moved more than 760 million bushels of grain in about 350 000 rail cars during the 1973-74 crop witn CP Rail handling half the traffic to ex- port terminals and domestic mills Senior CP executive officer Keith Campbell reported from Montreal Thuisdav that his companv fell 26 million bushels bhort of its 200 million bushel target for grain deliveries from April 1 to July 31 CP Rail unloaded 115 million bushels in the last four months at Thunder Bay 10 million at domestic mills and 49 million at Vancouver He said the rail company failed to meet its Vancouver objective because of labor disputes in West Coast gram elevators During the crop year ending July 31, CP Rail unloaded 000 cars at the lakehead, 000 cars at Vancouver and 12 000 at domestic mills CRANBROOK (Special) Cominco at Kimberley is one step closer to having its application for an effluent dis- charge permit approved by the B C pollution control branch The three areas of dis- charge include all effluents into James Creek all dis- charges from the fertilizer plant and the mine water from the Sullivan mine The Regional District of East Kootenay has sent copies of Commco's proposals to its pollution consultants for study and recommendation as to whether to object The schedule proposed by Cominco would see level B standards met in two main areas by the end of 1977 No specific proposal was made for the third area of dis- charge mine water This will come says Cominco at the end of the year Cominco proposed three things for James Creek A program was ex- pected to be operational in August for the gypsum pond That would eliminate the fluorine phosphorus and am- monia now going into that creek Bv the year end, the 'fire pond at the concentrator will be modified to act as a clanfier and storage pond, from which water would be recj cled to the mill for reuse It would handle mill sump water and thickener overflows but would have the capacitv to handle additional water at a later date from the treatment of tailings A diversion ditch is to be built this summer It will divert surface waters now entering the tailings ponds and becoming con- taminated Although the treat- ment method for tailings has not yet been completed Cominco has proposed more lime neutralization to remove metals and raise the pollution levels to B stan- dards Cominco says that the end of 1977 the fertilizer plant will meet B standards and the only discharge should consist essentially of uncon- tam mated process water and cooling water only The sanitary sewers from the plant will tie in with Kimberley's city sewage treatment plant in October At the phosphate plant, recycling of other con- taminated effluents will follow the gypsum pond recycling Construction is scheduled to start in October on ponds to provide settling of iron sul- phide sluicing water prior to discharge into a sewer Water discnargmg to the calcine ponds is to be reduced substantially to help alleviate the groundwater problem at Marysville (south of Kimberley) Ponds will also be constructed this year to provide clarification of water from the rock plant impingers before being let into a sewer In January, 1972 the pollu tion control board asked Cominco to apply for a permit for all its discharges In July 1973, Cominco sub- mitted an application for all its discharges to water The pollution control board at that time had adopted the standards set following provincial hearings in 1971 into the mining and smelting industn Standards are rated A B and C All new installations would be required to meet the top standard Existing mines would be required to meet level B by 1975 The Regional District of East Kootenay established through its consulting engineers that Cominco most level C standards Bat the RDEK objected to Comm co s application for a pollution control board permit on the basis that it did not meet all C parameters and that it did not provide a schedule outlining when it meant to meet higher standards Objections also came from the Kimberlev branch of the Scientific Pollution and En- vironment Control Society Cominco s Julv 1973, application was turned down the pollution control board Its latest application is now before the board QUALITY
