Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, Ffebruarv 14, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 35 65,000 French tourists left $15 million in Canada last year By DONAT VALOIS PARIS (CP) - About 65,000 French tourists visited Canada in 1972 and spent between $15 million and $17 million, says Pierre-Andre Cusson of the Canadian Government Travel Bureau in Paris. Cusson, interim director of the Paris office, said the num- ber of French tourists who visit Canada is increasing annually, and attributes this increase to co-operation between his staff and members of the Quebec delegation in Paris. He said his staff works in di-r e c t collaboration with the Quebec delegation, adding that 65 pei- cent of French tourists to Canada are from Paris and 85 per cent visit Quebec. "French tourists don't like to be out of their element, and they come to Quebec because their language is spoken there." However, he said that during the last few years, French people have been visiting Ontario and Western Canada as well. The travel bureau also serves Swiss and Beigian tourists who wish to travel to Canada and their number is also increasing, Cusson said. The bureau advertises regularly in Paris-Match, l'Express, le N o u v e 1 Observateur and other French publications and is canvassing travel agencies and airlines. "More and more, we are trying to move on from dealing strictly with individuals and into the second phase of our development," Cusson said. "We are trying to reach associations and travel agencies who specialize in group travel." The bureau organizes annual tours to Canada for travel agents and travel writers, and has employed the services of a public relations firm and an advertising company. Louise Lapointe, director of the tourist service of the Quebec delegation, says French travellers "have true affection for Quebecers." "They are interested in what's happening in Quebec, in our culture, our films." French tourists who travel to Quebec never return disappointed, especially if they travel through the province extensively, Miss Lapointe said. The French tourists usually spend more money than other foreign tourists because they like top-quality lodgings, fine restaurants, and they often return with gifts for their friends and relatives. The Quebec department of t o u r i s i s m, fish and game studied the possibilities of French tourism in Quebec for several months before it decided in 1970 to establish a service in Paris. Todays news on yesterday^s -paper? LONDON (CP) - After eight years of research, a British company is coming close to the day when used newsprint may be recycled on a continuous basis on a large scale so that tomorrow's news may be printed on yesterday's paper. Two experimental plants set up by Reed Paper and Board UK Ltd., one of the world's biggest paper makers, now have a capacity to pi-oduce at least 150 tons a day of recycled newsprint. Cost of British imports of woodpulp has been rising steadily and this provided the economic incentive for using waste as a supplementary source of paper. The problem was to develop a system whereby reclaimed printed material could be made into fresh, clean newsprint on a continuous basis. There could be no uneconomic consumption of wash water and no undue demands could be put on plants treating effluents. Previous systems operated on the batch system and were unable to handle raw material containing what paper makers call contraries - wire staples, string, plastics and paint. TOOK OVER PROBLEM Then Reed and its associated company took over the problem. Now one plant rated at 80 tons a day can produce 100 tons and a smaller plant rated at 40 tons has exceeded 50 tons. One earlier process used the flotation principle - a method in which ink was loosened by chemical action on the repulp-ed paper and then skimmed off in a series of flotation cells. But this was a batch process and the cost was high. The problem handed to the associated company, Reed Engineering and Development Services, imposed formidable conditions. For example, to be continuous it had to provide automatic cleaning of contraries, to accept some material other than newsprint and to be a washing rather than a flotation process. But its consumption of water had to be much lower than that of other systems and British statutory requirements for industrial effluents also had to be met. LAB WORK DONE Necessary laboratory work was done to establish the best formula for de-inking. Another program was launched to ensure that sufficient quantites of raw materials would be available for use when required. That aspect was undertaken by an associated company which specializes in waste paper collection and disposal. The first .experimental plant made under the program had a capacity of only 10 tons a day. It cost �30,000 (about $72,000) and was of simplified design. Unsorted bundled or. baled waste is fed into the plant's pulper by conveyor, the pulp-er acting also as a separator screen. Controlled amounts of slushing water and de-inking chemicals are added continuously. Distintegrated paper leaves the pulper-also continuously-but this stock contains a variety of heavy contraries which are removed as the process advances. Before the fibres are ready for the paper making machine there are several further cleaning stages. Authorities have been encouraged by the plant's capability to process substandard raw material, while the strength of tho newsprint it produces is greater than that made from imported wood pulp. Machine operators claim to prefer the de-ihked stock because the paper machine runs more efficiently when it is used. The Reed aim is to make newsprint commercially by an increasing re-use of read once newspapers and periodicals, over issues and the like.
