Business First railway in north may link Yukon YELLOWKN IFE. N.W.T. (CP) The first railway into the north would likely link Brit- ish Columbia and the Yukon, northern experts say. This line could then shift east- ward into the Northwest Terri- tories and connect with the Mackenzie River water route. Transport Minister Don Ja- niieson recently called such a railway into the Yukon a "fan- tastic although a Cana- dian National Railways execu- tive said at the same meeting that production of minerals on a large scale would pull the rail- ways north. The CNF. says the mining po- ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Denial Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 tential that might make a rail- way economical exists in north- ern British Columbia. Mine de- velopment could pull a spur line north through west-central B.C from the CNR main line at Ha- zelton which is on the route to Prince Rupert, officials said. This line has already been sur- veyed. Hazellon is about 35U miles south of the B.C.-Yukon border in a straight line. A rail route would be considerably longer. A junction between the north- ern line and the CNR main line would be of major importance in planning of a superport at Prince Rupert. GOVERNMENT INVOLVED Experts said discussions of a B.C.-Yukon line are highly polit- ical because of the involvement in northern development of the B.C. govetnment's Pacific Great Eastern line. This line is the most northerly B.C. rail system and has com- pleted about three-quarters of a 250-mile route between Fort St. John and Fort Nelson. Stinson named manager of Pacific Press VANCOUVER (CP) David Stinson, 34, has been appointed manager of Pacific Press Ltd., the company announced here. Mr. Slinson succeeds Edward Benson, who resigned in Sep- tember. He has been acting manager since Mr. Benson's departure. He came to Vancouver from Winnipeg in 1963 as a systems and data processing specialist with MacMillan Bloedel Ltd. and served in a similar capac- ity with Laurentide Financial Corp. for a short time before joining Pacific Press in 1968. Thus any effoils to extend a line into the Yukon would prob- ably involve negotiations be- tween B.C. and the federal gov- ernment. Mr. Jamieson told a recent Arctic transportation conference that the possibilities of a rail- way into the Yukon from B.C. should not be ignored. He also said the federal gov- ernment should increase its spending for northern transpor- tation. The spending, however, would be divided between sur- face and air routes and im- provements for marine trans- portation on the Malkenzie River and Arctic Ocean. MUST PAY OWN WAY Government spending, he said, is necessary to provide a cUmate for industry to develop the north's resources. The transport department, however, is advocating that transportation facilities owned and operated by the federal government must pay their own way, the minister said. The stress has been placed on hav- ing the user of transport facili- ties pay the bill. Under this policy, the north- ern experts said, a line from B.C. to the Yukon could be jus- Nixon speech writer WASHINGTON (Renter) James Keogh, 54, resigned here as President Nixon's chief speech writer, saying he has decided to return to journal- ism.

Tlie White Puss and Yukon route already operates a rail line from Skagway, Alaska, to Whilchorse, Y.T., and serves many of the mines in the south- western Yukon. There are other possibilities for northern rail development further east. Extensive mineral deposits j are being explored in the Kee-1 watin district, north of Mani- toba. Tracks from huge mineral reserves could feed export mar- kets through Churchill, Man. or some other port on Hudson Bay.
