Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 21, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, January 21, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Mark 25th anniversary Statistics Canada report Crown corp. to seek new name Edmonton leads new home prices MONTREAL (CP) The Canadian Overseas Tele- communication Corp. (COTC) -is hoping to celebrate its 25th anniversary this year by getting a less cumbersome name that will reflect the space-age organization it has become. Officials of the Crown cor- poration, which controls all communications between Canada and foreign nations, are the first to admit the com- pany name is a mouthful and something more streamlined, bilingual and with a bit of zap would be suitable. A name change, however, must come under government approval, and corporation spokesman Hubert Potvin said in a recent interview that the government is a bit too concerned right now with rotten eggs and inflation to worry about name changes. The corporation's equivalent name in French, La Societe Canadienne des Telecommunications tran- smarine, when coupled with the English version, can be tough on switchboard operators. Although the corporation is not about to engage in a multi- million-dollar horn-blowing campaign to shake up Cana- dians to the fact of its exis- tence, it does hope this anni- versary year will be one in which soft-sell public relations will bring the organization some recognition. In conjunction with the anniversary, the COTC is sponsoring a scholarship to be awarded an- nually to one postgraduate student for research in engineering, physics, chem- istry, computer sciences or other courses related to inter- national telecommunications. OTTAWA (CP) Statistics Canada reported today on its first attempt to measure changes in selling prices of new housing. The agency has produced price indexes for sales of tract homes in six urban areas and the first report covers sales to last August. Edmonton had the largest increase between July and August, 1.2 per cent and the Ottawa Hull area was the only one where there was a decline between the two months, down one tenth of one per cent. The largest increase in the 12 months to August was in Montreal, up 43.5 per cent and the smallest increase in Toronto, up 21.8 per cent. Other August, 1973, to August, 1974, increases were Ottawa Hull, 22.2 per cent; Winnipeg, 24.2 per cent; Calgary, 30.9 per cent; and Edmonton, 34.3 per cent. The- indexes measure price changes only within the urban area and do not provide a measure of comparative prices between cities. The indexes only cover sales of new houses and the agency only surveys tract builders who put up more than 100 un- its a year. Connie Jones, chief of the section, which produces construction price statistics, said they hope to add three cities to the survey within two years. It takes several years to develop indexes. The statisticians began collecting information on housing prices in 1969. The indexes will be issued four times a year and each quarterly report will have index levels for three months. The first report notes that the indexes attempt to measure changes in costs of land, labor and materials but not changes in quality.
