C, C. McLaurin, former Al- berta Supreme Court chief justice, and Calgary appraisers Jack Leslie and Louis Howard faced two of the most conten- tious issues during the hearings which began Oct. 6. Established prices paid to the federal government for land purchase and assessments based on maximum permitted land use created the contro- versy. The prices are establish- ed figures set by the govern- ment for the purchase of land in the community. Despite Northern Affairs Minister Chretien's word to re- bato established prices, the hearing was told 365 lessees who paid them have no indica- tion a rebate is coming. They have been assessed in the same way as every other lessee in Banff, according to maximum permitted land use. This means that a motel like Roy Tough trapped in wreck as cars passed on nearby road NANOOSE BAY, B.C Roy Tough lay trapped in his wrecked car for nearly 48 hours, listening vainly to cars passing on Ihe highway 50 feet away, before he was found Fri- day. Tough, a 48 year old bach- elor from Parksville, was driv- ing to work at a Nanaimo lumber company about 6 a.m. Wednesday when his car plung- ed off tlie highway and down a 20 foot embankment. "I think I must have gone to OTTAWA (CP) Canada stands to lose some million in labor income and million in tax revenues if the Kootenay and Elk Railway Co. is allowed to haul southeastern British Col- umbia coal through the United States, the research manager of CP Rail said today. H. M. Romoff told the Cana- dian transport commission that coal shipped from the Kootenay mining area to the Roberts Bank Pacific port by CP Rail would generate some ?324.5 mil- HALE OPTICAL E73 COMPANY LTD SS ff Gary Mortin Dispensing Optician 307 6th St. S. 327-7152 lion In labor income during a 15-year-period. It would also produce about million for Canadian tax coffers. But he said if Kootenay and Elk Is allowed to build a rail- way from the coal mining area to the B.C.-Montana border to ship coal through the northwest- ern U.S. en route to Roberts Bank, only S54.2 million in Ca- nadian labor income and million in Canadian tax revenue would result. The economic loss to Canada would be some million in lost labor income and SI 67.1 million in lost tax revenue dur- ing the 15-year period. Mr. Romoif, the last CP Rail witness to ttstify against the Kootenay and Elk application, discussed the economic impact of two railway companies shar- ing the coal hauling duties for' the area. At present, CP Rail is the sole transporter of Kootenay Valley coal. He testified that if CP Rail allowed Kootenay and Ellc the right to use CPR tracks to haul coal to the U.S. for transfer to the Burlington Northern railway Canada would lose some million in labor income and million in tax revenues. Tha loss would be greater be- cause there would be less cash input into the Canadian econ- omy. Mr. Romoff said he based his statistics on Dominion Bureau of Statistics economic input- output tables. He estimated there would be some to fewer Canadian jobs" if Kootenay and Elk is granted a share in the coal transportation. Kootenay and Elk have argued that a second railway route to Vancouver is necessary to cope with increasing volumes cf coal required by the Japa- nese steel industries. The company would also de- velop the thermal coal potential of tlie area because of the "sub- stantial market" for this type of coal in the northwestern United States. As well, a second railway in the area would force CP Rail to charge more competitive freight rates. Under cross-examination by G. R. Alley, counsel for Koot- enay and Elk, Mr. Romoff agreed there would be a consid- erable loss to Canada if the coal mining area was not developed. Mr. Alley estimated the loss to be some million during a 15-year period if no coal was transported. If the area was not developed, Canada would stand to lose even greater amounts in labor income and taxes. Mr. Romoff agreed there would be a loss.

"One minute I driving and the next thing 1 remember is hitting a tree." His cold, hungry predica- ment ended when a searcher's hunch paid off.

"I kept hearing cars, but they couldn't see Tough said later as he recuperated in hospital at Nanaimo from leg cuts. "I began to think I would never be found." the Banffshire Inn wlu'ch paid to tlie government to ob- tain a lease is being assessed the same way as someone who obtained his lease free. Mr. Howard said the board has no solution to the problems but considered the possibility of land rentals being calculated on a percentage of the gross in- come of a business. Mr. Leslie said the review board is faced with a few weeks of paper work before their job is finished. He gave no indica- tion when residents would hear a decision from tlie federal government and speculate it could be delayed until all na- tional parks hearings are com- pleted.
