Lord, 42, of London, Ont., has been ed fire chief of this southern Al- berta community and will take over in late September. Mr. Lord has been working as fire prevention inspector for the department of national de- fence in western Ontario. Variations In heating costs because ol differences in cli- matic conditions across Can- ada have always mado it dif- ficult to compare living costs between one city and another. The general consumer price index is based on a set quan- tity of goods and services purchased in various cities, hut always of equivalent quality. Because of variations in the type and quantities of home- heating fuels involved, such comparisons are not as easily made, Natural gas is used in 95 per cent or more of the homes In Hegina and Edmon- ton, but only about 10 per cent of the homes in Montreal and Ottawa. So the statisticians tackled the problem from the angle of the amount of heat re- quired, in British Thermal Units or BTUs, to heat a 400-square-foot detached house, considering the sev- erity of the winter in various cities. Tills severity was measured In degree-days, the same way the oil company knows when to refill a householder's oil tank. BASED ON WINNIPEG The statistics bureau also based its comparisons in heating costs in )0 cities with the cost in Winnigap. The city was chosen arbitrarily as a basis for comparisons be- cause of its central location between cast and west. The survey found that last February, it cost 10 per cent less to heat a foot house in Regina than it did in Winnipeg, and 41 per cent less in Kdmonton. It cost 53 per cent more to heat the same house in St. John's, Nfld., and 67 per cent more in Charlottelown than In Winnipeg. It cost 20 per cent more in Halifax and 38 per cent more in Saint John, N.B. Montreal heating costs were 24 per cent more than Winnipeg's, Ottawa 13 per cent more, and Toronto five per cent more. Vancouver costs were three per cent more than Winnipeg's. A similar survey was dono for May, 1971, but tho results of last February's survey showed little change In most cities except Charlottctown and Ottawa. In May, 1971, home-heating costs in Char- lottetown were S3 per cent higher than Winnipeg, and Ottawa's were eight per cent higher. Benson undecided OTTAWA (CP) Defence Minister Edgar Benson said to- day he has not yet decided whether to seek re-election. He also said he has not offered the presidency of the Canadian Transport Commis- sion, as has twen reported this week. Prime Minister Trudeau said as he came out of a cabinet meeting that the question ot Mr. Benson's appointment was not raised. Asked when a replacement for J, W. Pickersgill, who re- tires as head of the CTC In Oc- tober, be named Mr. Trudeau said: "Soon."
