B. A. J. Smith told the asso- ciation annual meeting the AMA not remain silent if such a tax was used to raise rapid Iransit funds. "Our association cannot con- done taxing ttic motorist, to provide public transportation, nor support legislation that will bar automobiles from the downtown core of metropou'tau areas." Although tlic automobile is a contributor to air pollution "truly harmful pollutants such as svtlphur oxides. do not come from automobiles at ail but from industrial sources." KIDDING THEMSELVES Mr. Smith said Alberta cities have the opportunity to bene- fit from mistakes made in Eastern Canada and Uie United States in ttie area of rapid Iransit. Those who would support the banning of cars from the down to facilitate rapid transit "are only kidding tliemselves if they really believe that in- dividuals will ever chose rapid transit as opposed to personal transportation.11 In decentralized cities such as Calgary such a ban would "result in stagnation of the core."
