The union spokesman said only 56 of 160 carpenters were still working following the latest wave of layoffs this week. Similar reductions have been made in other trades at the site, he said. A heavy equipment operator, laid off Monday, said workmen at the site were "just cleaning up, doing odds and ends." So far the sudden increase in unemployment has not. been felt by local government assistance agencies. Gord Pollock, Canada Man- power manager, said a delay mechanism often operated in construction layoffs. If the construction force followed traditional patterns, most of the men would take a break of several weeks before they began searching for jobs, he said. New ambulance service study now under way EDMONTON (CP) Any legislation on the delivery of ambulance services in Alberta is at least two or three years away, a spokesman for Health Minister Neil Crawford says. The spokesman said a province wide study of am- bulance services by the Alberta Hospital Services Commission now is under way and will not be ready before that time. The study was initiated after the Alberta Medical Association (AMA) presented a brief to the government urg- ing the drafting of an Alberta Ambulance Services Act to standardize equipment and training procedures. Private ambulance operators also have asked for help in the face of rising costs. The AMA, in its brief, also suggested the co ordination of services on a regional basis and a study of the costs involv- ed in the province taking over or subsidizing ambulance operations. PWA shelves plan for extra flight Arlie Jesperson, vice president of the Alberta Am- bulance Operators Associa- tion and manager of Smith's Ambulance in Edmonton, said the provincial government must step in with some form of program to co ordinate the dispatch of calls on a regional basis. He said there now is nothing to prevent competing am- bulances from answering the same call and nothing to en- sure that if one firm's vehicle is not available, another's will he. The only legislation cover- ing ambulances now is con- tained in the Highway Traffic Act and the Public Service Vehicles Act, he said. Under that legislation, the only requirement to get into the business is to take a basic lifesaving course, buy a sta- tion wagon and mount a flashing light on it. Mr. Jesperson said much more training is needed in vehicle operation and paramedical techniques and that stricter regulations are needed to cover equipment. EDMONTON (CP) Pacific Western Airlines has temporarily shelved a plan to provide an extra daily flight to Fort McMurray, 250 miles north of Edmonton, a spokesman for the Alberta government owned firm said yesterday. PWA, which services Alber- ta, British Columbia, the Northwest Territories, and Seattle in addition to its charter operation, now operates three flights a day to Fort McMurray on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, four flights on Tuesday and Friday, one flight on Saturday and two on Sunday. The extra -daily flight to Fort McMurray, in the Athabasca oil sands area, was scheduled to start in April but has been deferred "because of a tightening up in all in- dustrial the spokesman said. In addition, he said a study now is under way to find out how many stewardesses will have to be laid off. He said there had been rumors the staff layoff was tied to the deferral of the ex- tra Fort McMurray flight but this was not correct. WHO WOULDN'T TIRE? The funnel web spider has been timed to cover a distance equivalent to 330 times its body length in 10 seconds, but at this rate tires quickly. PWA now employs 245 stewardesses and because "normal attrition has not oc- curred this there is an over-all surplus in the system and some of them will have to be laid off. He suggested that between 12 and 15 stewardesses would be laid off. The spokesman said the air- line is "streamlining" its operations because of the economic conditions, adding that there would be no reduc- tion in its service to the Northwest Territories. The airline also announced yesterday the opening of a million aircraft maintenance facility at Edmonton's In- dustrial Airport. Owned by the city, the facility has two hangers join- ed by shop and office areas and is leased on a long-term basis. Slli.
