Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Air talks focus on energy uecemoer OTTAWA The fuel crisis has emerged as a major item in Canada-United States air talks that resume here to- day. Informed sources say Cana- dian negotiators will seek guaranteed supplies for Cana- dian air carriers in the fuel- short following fears that normal fuel allotment to the carriers will be cut. The Canadian move is main- ly designed to help air carriers that do not have regular fuel supply contracts in the U.S. even those with fuel contracts may be affected by shortages in the U.S. An Air Canada spokesman said Monday that effective Jan. 7 there will be a 15 per cent cutback in the airline's fuel allocation in the based on last year's contracts. The airline has not been hurt so far by the U.S. fuel he said. Air Canada operates to such busy centres as New Los Angeles and Miami. Nine CP Air non-stop flights from Vancouver to Toronto and Montreal had to land at Calgary for refuelling over the weekend because of a cut- back in the fuel quota from a U S. refinery. CP Air is supplied at Van- couver by Imperial Oil Ltd. from its parent Standard Oil refineries in the neighboring state of Washington. A CP Air spokesman described the situ- ation as a emer- gency and said extra fuel was being flown in from other Canadian centres. one source said air charter operations without regular contracts might be hardest hit by fuel cut-backs. One carrier had said he might have to fly to Mexico to refuel on flights to the U.S. The fuel crisis in the U.S. is one reason why Canadian ne- gotiators are anxious to wrap up the four-year long air dis- cussions. They fear that if the discussions collapse without agreement Canadian air car- riers might find themselves last at the fuel pump at U.S. airports American and Canadian ne- gotiators greed in early September on a new package of air routes and resolved a dispute over customs preclearance in Canadian air- pots. But final approval depends on settlement of air charter issues. There appears little danger of a complete collapse in the air talks because both sides have much to gain. The routes agreement is at- tractive to carriers in both countries and the U.S. very much wants a slice of the heavy Canadian passenger trafiic to American like the Virgin Puerto Rico and Hawaii. At the this inclusive tour charter business is almost entirely in the hands of Canadian carriers. Inclusive tours include the price of ac- commodation and other serv- ices. Canadian regional and char- ter carriers have opposed sig- nificant concessions to the U.S. because they have little or nothing to gain from the routes agreement. Most routes granted to Canadian carriers will go to CP Air and Air Canada. It is understood that the ne- gotiators have agreed that Cmerican carriers would get 25 per cent of the Canadian passenger traffic to 25 per cent of the Hawaii business and 40 per cent of the remaining market including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. All that remains to be settl- ed is the Canadian require- ment that one-shot charter flights across the border have prior approval from the Canadian transport commission. American negotiators are expected to make some proposal to clear this problem up at this week's meetings. The fuel issue is a new ele- ment in the discussions. There have been complaints about American carriers tak- ing on extra fuel in Canada. But Transport Minister Jean Marchand has said it would be unfair to put American air carriers in a special category by imposing restrictions.

NUTRIENTS LACKING Stevenson said the whirlpools are spread over 700 miles of the Yucatan current. This current normally has a temperature of about 80 degrees and is virtually devoid of nutrients that would attract fish. He said the eddies are pro- duced by chill waters deep be- neath the surface and appar- ently are permanent features that had never been recogniz- ed until recorded by Skylab's sophisticated cameras. Large fields of cold water in a warm current could cause a significant change in atmos- pheric absorptions of heat from the he said. of ocean tem- peratures are critical to weather Stevenson said. He said that enough of the cold whirlpools in warm currents would cause a deviation on weather forecasts. These pockets of cool water also may explain the some- times-erratic behavior of which survive and grow on heat absorbed from warm water. Stevenson said the pockets bring to the sur- face rich nutrients from depths of 400 to 500 feet and thereby attract fish.
