House program swallows mongy OTTAWA The federal assisted home ownership pro- gram is swallowing money so rapidly that the possi- bility of restraints on application approvals is being raised in government circles. But Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. officials say that money can be if from less popular programs to handle demand. Those who wonder about the possibility of restraints later in the year point to the tight housing market conditions which make AHOP more attractive. CMHC sources say there were slowdowns in approvals earlier this year when the budget was only million for AHOP. The program of assistance to moderate income home buyers was launched in July last year. But corporation officials say the reins were loosened when the government increased the budget to million in late April. An additional million was promised by Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford during the election campaign after the government broadened eligibility rules for AHOP. The current budget should be enough to handle say CMHC officials. But other sources expect a flood of applications with the new AHOP rules and the current housing squeeze in the regular market. About million was committed to the end of June for houses. But Prime Minister Trudeau announced broader AHOP rules in early June allowing families earning between and 200 to qualify. Previously only families earning between and could apply for AHOP assistance. The move was made to enable families in high-cost housing centres like Toronto and Vancouver to benefit from the died Thursday night when the car he was working under slipped off its jack and crush- ed him. No water shortage Heavy summer rains ended any fears that St. five miles north of would be short of water for the next few days. An estimated three inches was dumped on the town flooding basements and overtaxing the sewer system. Consumers lose air fares fight OTTAWA The Con- sumers' Association of Canada lost a bid Fri- day to delay implementation of new air fare increases by national and regional air carriers. Guy vice- president of the Canadian transport said he saw no evidence of special cir- cumstances justifying delay of air passenger ticket price increases beyond the effective date of the rate boosts. CP Air Tran- Pacific Western Airlines and Eastern Provincial airways are seek- ing increases effective July 21 while Nordair has filed a rate increase to take effect Aug. 1. Air Canada and CP Air have requested fare increases of 9.5 per cent while the regional airlines are asking for similar increases for competitive routes in southern Canada. The consumers group asked the commission to delay the effective date for the increases until after a public hearing on whether the tariffs are justified. The commission Monday will hear a second request by the CAC asking for a public hearing on the air passenger rates. If a public inquiry is held it will be the first such air fare case heard by the com- mission. The commission generally investigates air rate proposals oc- casionally suspending them. Mr. Roberge also said that the alleged practice of airlines already charging higher fares for reservations for domestic flights after the effective date of the new tariffs is not con- trary to commission rules. But he said he is making no judgment on legal rights in- volved between customers and the airlines. I would like to express my sincerest thanks to the people of the Lethbridge Constituency who supported me in the July 8 General Election. I am deeply grateful to those throughout the donated their precious time to work for our cause.
