Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 1HE U1HBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, March 7, 1773 Blames automatic reservation cquip'nent Tory MP claims serious in Air Canada service By VICTOH MACK1E Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA A serious "dete- rioration" ill Air Canada serv- ice across Ihe country and espe- cially in the Ottawa area, has occurred with the installation of automatic reservation couip- ment, John Lundrigan (PC Gander Twillingate) charged in House of Commons Mon- day. He wants to see Ihe chairman and chief executive officer of Air Canada Yves Pratte and the Air Canada President John Baldwin, summoned to appear before the Commons committee en transportation and commu- nications to explain this "dete- rioration." Both by means of special mo- tion before the House and through questions during the question period, the member from Newfoundland, attacked Ihe government-owned airline. He failed lo get the unanimous consent to introduce a motion when several Liberal cabinet minister's shouted "No, no." "You've got your own private an opposition MP shouted at Ule cabinet henches. Outside the House Mr. Lun- drigan told reporters that he had been receiving numerous complaints from the public and from MPs about the difficulties they experienced since the auto- matic reservation service installed in Montreal. He claimed that nearly every time he and others telephoned the Air Canada number for a reservation they were answer- ed by a recorded message and put on "hold." "They system is overloaded. It just doesn't work. sold Messrs Pratt and Baldwin on this automatic centralized res- ervation service did the public a disservice. You can't get through to the Air Canada people at the Ottawa airport and consequently you can't find out if your aircraft is depart- ing on time or whether it will bo lie said. He said be had three major complaints: can't reach Air Canada by telephone, they are always busy, busy." you do reach Air Canada the people you are talk- ing to bi Montreal don'l have tbe information as to the cor- rect departure times or wheth- er there will be delays." people in Montreal have not got up to' date infor- mation on weather conditions in Ottawa and other areas. They'll tell you your plane is departing or arriving on time, hut you get to the airport to find it is held up." Mr. Lundrigan challenged the capabilities of cither Mr. Pratte or Mr. Baldwin to operate an airline of such a size. He said they had no background or training for it, although he con- ceded that Mr. Baldwin had been a long time deputy minis- ter of transport in Ottawa. The opposition MP claimed that the morale of the people working for Air Canada was at a "low level" because of bad decisions made at tho "top lev- els." In the question period he asked Transport Minister Jean Marchand it he would refer to the House committee the ques- tion of "quality of service" of Air Canada "especially that being endured by the residents of Ottawa as a result of the re- location of the telephone reset- valion centre to Montreal." Mr. Marchand said he would consider tbe matter. Mineral water label to be changed OTTAWA (CP) Producers of mineral waters have been given an eight-month extension for new labelling requirements, the deparment of consumer and corporate affairs has an- nounced, In a trade letter to food and beverage manufacturers and food importers, J. B. Seaborn, assistant deputy minister, said the new deadline of Sept. instead of Feb. 1, 1973 was agreed to because of "oper- ational problems associated with the printing of revised la- bels.' The letter was dated Feb. 28, 1973. Regulations affecting mineral water and natural mineral wa- ter were changed last Decem- ber by the health department. The new regulations required the main portion of the label to state the geographical location of the natural underground source, the total dissolved min- eral content in parts per million (ppm) and the total fluoride content in ppm. Mineral water, which differs from natural mineral water be- cause chemicals are added, also must contain indications of whether fluoride and carbon dioxide have been added and in what amounts.
