Barnes ennsions a winery, hotel and convention centre. Removal of the 9th St. bridge would also follow tie track re- location. he said. City Manager Tom Nulling said the city must negotiate dir- ectly with CP Rail over the pro- posed changes in use of the property. Mr. Nulling said legislation is scheduled to come up this year which would provide for the fi- nancing of track relocations to come through a federal grant. "It would cosi the city little or nothing." he said. In discussions with officials in the federal transport de- partment. Mayor Ar.dy .Ander- son. Denni? local economic development oificei. Mr. Nutting and AM. Barnes found out appropriate meas- ures which should he taken to achieve track relocation. The first step, which will be taken immediately. be to send a letter of ir.ietU to have the tracks removed to the Ca- nadian Transport Cejr.rr.issicn. Mr. O'Cpnr.ell taid 40 other cities acres?

In wltt Aid. Barnes called a "new atmosphere of coopera- tion1' illustrated by federal offi- cial'. the local delegation also discussed the future of the city's airport facilities. Although no definite commit- ments were made, there was some indication that the city could be eligible for airport expansion within three years, Aid. Barnes said. Talks concentrated on the need for establishing air freight services to allow a trade mar- ket in the Pacific region to be developed. Any decision on airport ex- pansion awaits the completion of an air services study by LaBorde Simat Ltd., Calgary I consultants. 'SASAA misleadin public'-ATA HOME OWNERS!
