Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, March 9, 1974-THE LETHMIDQE HERALD-31 Marchand girds for big fight to reform transport system OTTAWA (CP) Transport Minister Jean Marchand is girding himself for what promises to be a major fight to overhaul the national transportation system. "There will be a lot of he said in an interview Friday about his plans to tighten government control over transportation. But the prospect didn't seem to discourage him. I'm not sure I'm going to get it through. I'm sure of one going to try it."

He would seek power to manage transportation in Canada In the interview Friday he said he is frustrated with the existing- transportation situ- ation. "The way it works now, it's he said. The National Transportation Act of 1967 was piloted through the Commons by former trans- port minister J. W. Pickersgill. The act encouraged com- petition among various forms of transportation with certain limits protecting the public interest and shippers who could only use one method of transportation. There was also a clause prohibiting pricing below cost to eliminate competition. The idea of leaving rate-set- ting and other transport mat- ters to competition was not sufficiently questioned at the time, Mr. Marchand said. The act also established the Canadian transport commission from which there is little avenue of appeal, he said. The commission regulates transport companies The act did not really encourage competition in certain areas of the country. The Western provinces had .objected that the railways have little real competition from trucking companies in the West. While the act did correct some problems, it did not achieve its goal of providing better service and adequate rates through competition. Crown agencies have considerable independent power, he said. "I have no objection that we have Crown corporations or that we have regulatory agencies but I think the government through the ministry of transport should manage transportation in Canada." Mr. Marchand said that de- spite the attention he focussed JIM JURIS Lie. 010291 TEONEWBY Uc. 010283 PicturiBiitti JffiY HAMMOND Ue. 010385 Nixon jokes WASHINGTON (Reuter) President Nixon joined the de- bate over the college fad of streaking Friday, jokingly saying it is the only way to clean up the polluted environment. He made his remark at a meeting with Republican con- gressional leaders when part of the discussion centred on how "dirty" fuels can be used to ease the United States energy shortage without harming clean-air standards. Senator Hugh Scott (Rep. Pa.) quoted Nixon as saying in the nude at top 'is the only answer if you are to get a completely pure environment." Midwest Excavating us?

Lethbridge Alberta Dugouts -Drainage Ditches -Irrigation Canals FREE ESTIMATES Contract or Hourly on freight rate problems by requesting a rate freeze last summer, he was not informed by the railways of a recent in- crease in steel tariffs. The rates went up more than 30 per rent on some shipments from central Canada'to the West Coast. "They didn't even send a letter to say we had to do it." But the public and opposition politicians expected him to answer for railway actions. "I don't even have the power that they notify me." What really bothered him was that he had never felt he was in con.trol of transportation in Canada, and he doubted any other transport minister had felt differently. The only ministers who sur- vived in the portfolio were good politicians able to answer questions or "pass the buck." He said that despite record freight movements last year, he has figures showing the railways will have no more freight equipment available this year. Yet there were forecasts of .up to an eight-per- cent-increase in traffic. The government should not have to build additional hopper cars, as it did two years ago, to carry grain, Mr. Marchand said. That be a railway responsibility but the government did not have the power to demand it. The government gives the railways about million annually for operational deficits on passenger services but lacks the authority to tell the railways how to use it, he said.
