Ottawa wants to get out of hostel plan PRESSURE TREATED FENCE AND CORRAL POSTS to POINTED 7 ft. 2V to POINTED 7 ft. to POINTED 7 ft. to NOT POINTED lOfi. to NOT POINTED Get Your Posts Now While Available at GENERAL FARM SUPPLIES Count Box 1202 Phone 328-1141 OTTAWA The federal government wants to get out of the operating end of the flourishing youth hostel business and is encouraging formation of a new national hostel group as the first step. That's the word from Brian an official in the secretary of state's office of- ficial who runs the federal hostel program. He says the aim is to leave operations to a private without withdrawing all its aid to the hostels program. It has been subsidizing about 100 privately-run hostels scattered across the country. At the same private and provincially-supported hostels parallel those with federal backing. Planning for a change is at an early stage but Mr. Gilhuly sees such change based on the assumption that youth out to see the country from coast to coast are permanent features now. The present program was established hastily in 1970 after young began to take to the road. It was expanded in 1971 but the government still thought the phenomenon was a Mr. Gilhuly said. About mainly in a 15-to-25-year age have used the federal hostels every year since 1971. There may have been a slight decline last but it is hard to measure since Vancouver hos- tels came into the federal pro- gram for the first time. there is no more than approximately 10-per- cent fluctuation in hostel use from year to year. The first step in turning over hostels to a single private organization is to bring all hostel associations into a one group. The impetus came from State Secretary Hugh Faulkner last January and the various hostel associations have had two meetings so far to discuss union. A draft proposal is cir- culating among the various groups and it may take final form at a meeting in St. in the fall. Mr. Gilhuly said the govern- ment hopes to turn the oper- ations over next year. It already is preparing for the new system.
