Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 23, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Regional airlines may get new deal OTTAWA (CP) Changes in domestic air policy lifting some restrictions on regional airlines may be included in the new national transport policy expected this spring. Regional airlines currently are tied to certain geographical areas, but it is understood transport planners are considering removing these limits. A government source, who did not wish to be identified, suggested the Canadian trans- port commission and Tran- sport Minister Jean Marchand have sufficient control over air routes already. They could judge whether competition should be allowed on some runs. An extensive review of do- YAMAHA ORGANS New and Used COLLEGE MALL Phone 328-3694 mestic air operations has been underway for more than a year and will be included in a general transport policy an- nouncement, he said. Transport Minister Jean Marchand said in Halifax last, week that he hopes the policy will be unveiled this It is understood that cabinet committees will deal with the policy by subject though everything will be tied together in a single policy package before an- nouncement to the public. Even after it is made public, the transport policy may not be implemented for months. Mr. Marchand has said he will discuss the proposals with the provinces and a parliamentary com- mittee. The Liberal party rushed out a policy paper during the July election campaign based on preliminary work by tran- sport department planners. The departmental study began after Mr. Marchand said last HOUSING CORPORATION WILL BE MOVING ITS LOCAL OFFICE TO: 519 7th ST. S. EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 1, 1975 March that transportation was in a mess and he lacked control over transport operations. The Lioeral policy paper and the last throne speech in September promised new machinery to manage all ground transport effectively. An adequate supply of rail freight cars also was pledged. Mr. Marchand has since stepped back from the specific promises of a national passenger corpora- tion to operate all passenger trains and some buses and a freight car leasing cor- poration. He said last fall he is en- couraged by the renewed interest of the railways in passenger trains and is waiting to see what the railways do before introduc- ing the new corporation. A transport department in- formation officer said he ex- pects a new light, rapid com- fortable (LRC) train service will begin on a Toronto- London-Sarnia route before the policy announcement. The LRC train is a fast, new train being built by a Canadian con- sortium. ,The Liberal policy paper also promised improved air service to remote areas.

Telephone 328-9231 WINNIPEG (CP) The epidemic of coronary heart disease can only be tackled successfully by. identifying people who are likely to become victims and treating them with diet, exercise and drugs, a U.S. researcher says. Doctors should begin look- ing upon heart attacks among their patients as medical failures which might have been prevented with early diagnoses, said Dr. William Kannel of Framingham, Mass. "More attention to well people, not sick people, is needed to solve the coronary Dr. Kannel, lec- turer in preventive medicine at Harvard University, told the Canadian Society for Clinical Investigation Doctors can identify patients likely to be heart- attack victims from blood- pressure levels, smoking histories, as well as with weight, diet and profiles, he said. However, Dr. Kannel said many doctors are reluctant to implement this preventive- medicine approach, partly be- cause they now are over- burdened with caring for the ill. Moreover, "most doctors are not particularly skilled at giving preventive medicine.'' Many doctors have already been discouraged by their lim- ited success in persuading patients to stop smoking or diet, he said. More success with this type of approach, however, would "allow doctors to make significant impacts on these major causes of mortality." On average, one male in five has "a major cardio- vascular catastrophe" before reaching 60 years and one in three has a coronary attack, he said. Dr. Kannel said patients should ask their doctors to take blood tests for cholesterol, in particular, but don't know how thrilled doctors will be by the re- quest." He also said the type of: social changes needed to im- prove health in affluent countries, such as curbing consumption of tobacco and rich foods, are exceedingly difficult to achieve because they run counter to vested interests. "People with large in- vestments will not recognize their social need to become extinct without putting up a scrap." Another researcher, Dr. Richard Havel of the Univer- .sity of California Medical Centre in San Francisco, warned that advances in cholesterol testing procedures appear to be leap- ing ahead of physicians' abili- ty to apply the knowledge in clinical practice. CAPE TOWN (Reuter) Prof. Christiaan Barnard has suggested another medical first-keeping transplanted hearts healthy in the chests of living patients until needed by other emergency cases. If the idea Barnard says there is no laboratory evidence to prove it will will solve the problem of finding donor hearts when they are urgently needed.
