Representatives of non- operating employees of CP RaO, Canadian National Rail- ways and nine smaller firms tiave announced their intention to stage selective strikes in various parts of the country for two or three days. The twp island provinces would be among the worst hit if railway-run ferry services were stopped.

But be says that apart from the legitimate grievances that can be dealt with, there are also geographic and psy- chological factors contributing to the alienation, and these will take longer to overcome. The prime minister will come to the Calgary conference, which opens Tuesday, with a series, of "concrete proposals" to meet some of the grievances.

"Everyone, including the federal govern- ment, has known our problems or years, and we are not going to be satisifed with just another discussion about said Premier Blakeny of Saskatche- wan. "It is time for some federal action." The four premiers have called for the establishment of a fed- eral-provincial authority on Western transportation, and an- other authority to evaluate existing freight rates. There is a request for the establishment of provincial banks, for more flexibility and spending on the part of the industrial develop- bank, and for tariff changes that would assist the industrial development of the West.' In various position papers, tile four premiers have criti- cized federal policies winch, they say, have resulted in an overwhelming concentration of research and technological in the East. They say _ Dwer mobility grants have encouraged westerners to leave the area for more indus- trialized centres, and that fed- eral banking polities have failed to meet the needs of this region.
