Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD December 1973 Little effort made to cut fuel use By CHRISTOPHER CARROLL Canadian Press Staff Writer Although many polilan areas in the United States are offering dis- count free rides and ex- tra service to encourage the use of mass transit vehicles instead of few urban centres in Canada are taking the same steps here to save luel A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press shows with the exception of Toronto and Montreal where publicity campaigns have increased the number of mass transit riders in the last few few transit companies are making special efforts to get people out of their automobiles. In Ed- Winnipeg. Regina and in the Atlantic transit authorities said nothing was being done to either encourage passengers or save fuel. In Vancouver. British Columbia Hydro said it was not taking any energy-saving steps at since it was not anticipating any fuel shor- tage. They said the city bus tleet was essentially electric- not gas or and a tuel shortage would not aftect the company. In the transit system is saving but is it not a result of efforts to save energy. The city-owned tran- sit system has been out on strike since Nov 29 and a spokesman said there is no in- dication of an early end to the walkout of the 680 transit workers. The spokesman said the en- lorced savings by the transit system amount to a day on electricity to operate its 87 trolley but that it meant much heavier use of cars by city workers who nor- mally use buses to travel to and from work In Regina. there is no imme- diate concern about fuel prob- a transit spokesman said. It's a problem for Eastern Canada now. In Brandon. a spokes- man said no action has been taken to date in an effort to get more people on the buses and none was expected winter. In Winnipeg an advertising campaign dealing with energy conservation has been launched. a spokesman said any schedule changes will be directly related to public demand for service. Thomas McKim of the Hali- tax transit company said no iteps have been taken recent- Iv because of the energy but he said there has been a lessening of auto traf- fic in the city and a cor- responding increase in the use ol city buses. He said the transit system hasn't considered possible luel shortages as yet because in an emergency public transit will probably have a high priority and could continue to operate at levels currently in eltect. In Moncton. N B Gus Pe- tipas of the Moncton transit said the only- measures his operation was taking was to turn down the thermostat in the garage and servicing areas. He said no city routes have been cut back because ot the fuel situation or rising prices. There is no problem in Prince Edward Island because there is no intercity public transportation.

Trudeau attack on Lougheed over energy issue criticized CHRISTMAS FLOWERS from SUPER SAM will be SUPER College Mall 9th Ave. S. 23rd St. N. By PALL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Alberta. Can- ada's red hot energy appears to have been pushed relentlessly out into the diplomatic cold by- Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau's minority Liberal government. there are beginn- ing to appear to be certain signs in Eastern Canada that some influential and thinking people believe that Mr. Trudeau may have gone too 1 ar and the time for an accom- modation must come soon.

At least two of Alberta's Liberal Harry Hays of Calgary and Earl Hastings of are absolutely behind Mr. Trudeau in the they are careful to point out that you can be both a good Albertan and a good Canadian at the same time. Both Senator Hays and Senator Hastings are capital but Senator Donald who insists on being called an dent is a great ad- mirer ol Mr. Lougheed on foreign policy at of Mr. Trudeau Senator Cameron is ex- tremely concerned'about the Ottawa-Edmonton hasn't much time for Mr. Mac- donald. and has tried to push Alberta's case to the federal cabinet and the top boys in the prime minister's office. The result. guys are just too he says. There are some bright Albertans in the Liberal but they tend to be Trudeau men first and Alber- tans or or maybe even fourth. Ivan who once taught at the University of Alberta in has been describ- ed as Mr. Trudeau's Henry Kissinger But diplomatic missions to Edmonton are not quite his style or Flavor. Blair national director of the federal Liberal hails from Taber Alta.. and ran the Alberta campaign for the Liberals in 1972. his success at electing MPs was that can hardly be blamed on Mr. Williams. He's energetic and intelligent. He's also a big. big Trudeau fan. When it comes down to Jack Horner and a man who cornered 75 per cent of all votes cast in his constituency in the 1972 lederal has more or less summed up the Albertans refused to elect a single Liberal to their 75-seat provincial legislature or a single Liberal in any of their 19 federal seats so Mr. Trudeau has written off Alberta until Albertans come around to Mr. Trudeau's way ot thinking.
