Several speakers on the las day of the conference, includ ing Mr. Richardson, Dr. Becke and Mr. Mowers, pledged con tinned pursuit of a permanent structure of some kind to pro- mote greater Western Cana- dian cohesion within the frame- work of Confederation. "The momentum generated by the conference definitely will r.ot be lost, and our Cal- gary meeting would indicate that by the fall, something con- crete should be in Dr, Beckel said following the meeting. It is likely a Canada West Council would be situated in Calgary, because of the availability of more resources than Lethbridge can offer, and because Calgary is part of a :ar superior transportation network. However, Dr. Beckel has sug- jested in the past that a major influence in selection of a Can- ada West Council headquarters would be the offer of free office ipace and the almost-empty Regional Development ing in Lethbridge might now be a possibility. The council is apparently as- iurred of sufficient private fi- nancial backing to operate ef- and at the end of the OnePPE conference, Mr. Rich- ardsxm suggested federal sup- iort would be possible.

It will be given to city coun cil fcr approval at Monday' regular meeting. Mrs. Winter pointed out one of the reasons for the being offered to smaller Cana dian cities was to provide foi federal and provincial govern ment involvement in the con struction of local sports facili ties. Acording to the brief, capi tal expenditures will be spli three ways, among the munic ipality, the province and the federal government. Estimatec capital costs are to be submit ted to the provincial govern ment for approval before being passed on to the federal gov ernm.ent. The two governments wil match capital costs up to a sug gested figure of each, leaving the city with a cost o; about on a proposed capital outlay of for tile three facilities needed. Mrs. Winter pointed out that both the covered pool and ten- nis courts are included in the city's planning for the next three years. Op e r a ting expenses for the 10-day summer games would be the responsibility of the federa government. These are giv.en in the brief as being about COO dollars. A major item is for athletes' trans portation. There might be a ceiling on these expenses, Mrs. Winter said, but no definite figure has been giv.en by the federal gov ernment. Other major concerns out lined in the brief are acconi modations and community sup port. Mrs. Winter told the meeting facilities in the city by 197; should be adequate for the 2 700 athletes expected, particu larly since only about half oi them would be expected to be in at any one time.
