Snow removal expensive job By ED SIMON Canadian Press Staff Writer Canadian cities are finding it increasingly expensive to do a snow job. A seemingly endless succession of winter storms has kept the plows, sanders, salt-spreaders and loaders on the roads, easing the pressure on rush-hour traffic and increasing it on municipal budgets. Montreal, reeling from the worst winter in living memory, has borrowed $10 million from next year's budget to meet a snow-clearing bill which Mayor Jean Drapeau says is approaching the $16 million mark. In Quebec City, one of the few eittes that imposes a tax based on snowfall, citizens will pay $1.15 per $100 land evaluation this year compared with last year's rate of 93 cents. The city has spent $3.2 million to clear its 167 miles of road, an increase of $600,000 over original stimates. DOWN FROM MOUNTAINS Even in Vancouver, where snow is usually something to be peered at on a distant mountain top, the city spent $480,000 on digging itself out this winter, compared with last year's bill of $68,000. It was a five-year high, although the record of $590,000 was set in 196445. Metropolitan Toronto has plowed, sanded, salted and shovelled $8.5 million worth of snowdrifts, 12 per cent more than last winter's crop which city officials described as average. Like most municipalities, Toronto has no special tax to cover the added expense but ratepayers will feel the pinch in a few weeks when the city and its adjacent boroughs set their 1971 mill rates. Ottawa, where last winter's Sask. drama winners selected NORTH BATTLEFORD, Sask. (CP) - The best play award hi the Saskatchewan regional presentations of the Dominion Drama Festival went to a pair of one-act comedies by English playwright Peter Shaffer, White Liars and Black Comedy. Cameron Mcintosh of North Battleford, who celebrates his 100th birthday in July, presented the Mcintosh trophy to director Ian Nelson of the Saskatoon Gateway Players for their entry in the five-day festival. Mr. Nelson also was presented the best director award for the plays and Don Glossqp of the Gateway Players won the award for best characterization by an actor. Marueen Olson, also of Saskatoon, won the best actress award and Brian O'Hara of the Swift Current Little Theatre was named best actor for his performance jn the Richard Nash play Rainmaker. The best supporting actress award went to Eileen MacKen-zie of Saskatoon and the best supporting actor award went to Ron Toles of Swift Current. snow-clearing cost of $1.7 million compared with an average of $1.13 million for the last four years, added another $1 million to cope with this year's fall. The Halifax works department, which got away with a $260,000 bill last winter, has shelled out $760,000 and estimates the figure may rise to $850,000 before the tulips bloom. DUMPED IN HARBOR The department figures 40 per cent of its expenditure goes for salting and sanding its hilly streets and the remainder for plowing and removal. Much of the snow from the narrow downtown streets is dumped into the harbor. Edmonton, where low temperatures in November and December prevented the early snow from melting, has spent $1.4 million on snow removal and another $570,000 on sanding and salting. Last year's comparable figures were $690,000 and $500,000. Regina's costs were $377,673 to March 3, compared with $250,751 for the full winter of 1969-70. The Saskatchewan government helped out by budgeting a $l-per-capita grant for snow removal. Metropolitan Winnipeg, which keeps its figures by the calendar year, reported that its $409,370 cost of snow clearing and ice control since Jan. 1 was down about $70,000 from comparable 1970 figures. But its total 1970 expenses were about $91,000 over the $1 million average.

British officials said they understood the discussions between the British consortium and the South Africans still are in the tentative state and that no contract is yet in sight. The foreign office declined to comment on the report beyond saying the British government has had no firm orders for new weapons to be sold to South Africa except for South Africa's declared intention of buying Hog prices EDMONTON (CP) - Prices to 11 a.m. today provided by the Alberta Hog Producers Marketing Board: Edmonton: Quoted 20.25 to 21.00, selling 20.30, average Friday 20.90.

Sales for 1970 showed a slight improvement over 1969, increasing to $i,556 million front $1,554 million, the company said in its annual report. Chairman George R. Vila attributed the drop in earnings to the general softness in the economy and most importantly to the automotive strike at General Motors. He predicted, however, that "the outlook for 1971 and beyond is encouraging" due to signs that the economy is gathering momentum and automobile sales are rising. sued by the British government only when weapons or strategic materials actually are ready for shipment. Prime Minister Heath's government, in the teeth of Commonwealth protests, has proclaimed its intention of resutn ing the sale of maritime defensive arms to South Africa, ending a six-year-old embargo on military supplies recommended by the United Nations because of South Africa's racial policies, It is not yet clear whether the projected sale of a missile defence system could be classed as a maritime defensive instal-lation. The Labor party has vowed that it will cancel any arms contracts between Britain and South Africa if it returns to power and this would include any orders that may be in the pipeline. TANKER EXPLODES ODENSE, Denmark (AP) - A workman was killed and nine taken to hospital with burns and shock Monday after an explosion aboard the almost-com pleted 265,000-ton Texaco Norway at the Lindoe Shipyards near Odense, police said. They said the explosion occurred in a boiler. The Texas Oil Co. tanker was to have been christened next week. Delay urged in permits for Alaska oil pipeline WASHINGTON (CP-AP) - | The chief environment official of the U.S. administration has urged a delay in granting permits to build an oil pipeline across Alaska until a thorough study can be made of an alternative route through Canada. Willim D. Ruckelshaus, administrator of the environmental protection agency, sent a letter to the interior department warning that an Alaska nioeHne may leave "environmental degradation and pollution." Ruckelshaus, in urging further study before any decision is made, said the interior department ignored some possible pollution risks in the report it issued last Jan. 13. Ruckelshaus told Interior Secretary Rogers C. B. Morton in the letter made public Sunday: "It is recommended that the action as currently proposed not be consummated by the department of the interior until further study has been completed." The alternate route from Alaska's North Slope through the Mackenzie Valley would avoid a trans-Alaska route and the "general adverse effects of the tanker traffic" between the port of Valdez and the U.S. West Coast, Ruckelshaus said. The pipeline's route would go east from Prudhoe Bay on the North Slope along the shore of the Beaufort Sea to the delta of the Mackenzie River, up the Mackenzie Valley, across the Prairie provinces and thence to Chicago and to Toronto. SAYS STATEMENT ERRS Ruckelshaus was critical of the interior department's statement for not covering such possibilities as accidental spills from the huge tankers that would take on oil at the end of the trans-Alaska route. He said the interior department had given little attention to the damage that might result from loading oil on a huge tanker fleet at Valdez and transporting it through Prince William Sound, the Gulf of Alaska and down the coast to the Strait of Georgia. He said that these are hazard ous waters and at least there should be discussion of "what measures will be taken to maintain hazards within acceptable limits." Ruckelshaus also criticized the interior department for giving only "cursory" consideration to the Mackenzie Valley route, emphasizing mainly the disadvantages and neglecting a number of important potential advantages. The advantages, he said, include avoidance of Alaska's earthquake belt, elimination of the tanker fleet and loading operations, and an opportunity to put the oil pipeline in a single corridor with natural gas pipelines that are likely to cross Canada anyway. The trans-Alaska route Is being sought by the Alyeska Construction Co., a consortium of seven oil companies. Ruckelshaus noted that Alyeska would almost certainly build a pipeline from Prudhoe Bay through the Mackenzie Valley to transport gas, and that Canada probably would construct one to transport, any gas and oil discovered in the Mackenzie delta and along its coast on the Beaufort Sea. "It would seem preferable," he sard, "from the points of view of minimizing the environmental impact, to use a single route for more than one pipsline rather thas having multiple pipeline routes." Canadian officials already have broached an alternate Canadian pipeline with U.S. officials in Washington. Northern Development Minister Jean Chretien said in Ottawa Friday he plans to meet the presidents of the seven com-nanies involved in Alyeska to discuss the alternate route. Chretien said the meeting would be to discuss guides under which Canadian producers would have access to such a pipeline and Canadian business would take a maximum part in construction and development of the project. Interior Secretary Morton already has made it clear that there could be no construction across the vast lands owned by the U.S. government in Alaska this year. Morton said last Thursday he thinks federal permits could not be granted at least until Alaskan native land claims are settled by Congress, a matter of several months at the earliest The oil companies had hoped to begin construction this spring. Large quantities of 48-inch pipe that they imported from Japan are stacked up in Valdez, and road-building machinery has been assembled south to the Yukon to construct a service road from the Yukon to Prudhoe Bay. There also is the question of cost. The estimated cost of the trans-Alaska route is something over $1,000 million while the cost of an oil pipeline over the 1,700 miles from Prudhoe Bay to Alberta, where it would link up with the existing pipeline grid, would be more than $2,000 million. The interior department, Ruckelshaus said, "should undertake a full and complete consideration of the alternatives, particularly the trans-Canada alternative." No-fault auto insurance plan cuts court cases WASHINGTON (AP) - The Nixon administration will give its backing this week to a "no-1 fault" auto insurance plan which would eventually eliminate auto accident court cases and provide payment for all accident victims no matter who was to blame. Quoting informed sources in the administration, The Star says Transportation Secretary John A. Volpe will describe the plan in an appearance before Congress Wednesday. The "no-fault" insurance system, its backers say, works because the adversary system inherent in the current inurance system is removed. Injuries and damages now are sometimes exaggerated, especially if the case goes to a courtroom jury. The idea is already being tried in Massachusetts, where accident victims automatically receive the first $2,000 of a damage claim regardless of Dollar value MONTREAL (CP) - U.S. dollar in terms of Canadian funds up 1-16 to $1.00 19-32. Pound sterling up % to $2.43%. NEW YORK (CP) - Canadian dollar down 3-32 at 93 13-32 in terms of U.S. funds. Pound sterling down 1-64 at $2.41 61-64. fault. At higher amounts, the issue can go to court. Legislation already introduced in the Senate calls for a $30,000 payment limit paid over 30 months regardless of blame. After that, the bill introduced by Senator Phillip Hart (Dem. Mich.) and Senator Warren Magnuson (Dem. Wash.) would allow the victims to go to court. Volpe's plan, however, would go beyond that to eventually provide no limit, thus virtually ending all auto accident court cases, tlie paper says. Men 3,900, snakes 4 SWEETWATER, Tex.
