Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, March 15, W4 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Calgary Power gets interim rate increase EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Public Utilities Board, announced Thursday it has approved an interim rate increase for Calgary Power Ltd. The interim rates will be effective for billings on and after April 1 for electricity consumed by customers on and after March 1 this year. Hearings on the company's 1974 rates ended March 6 but further written arguments from interveners will not be in the board's hands until next month, after which all submissions and evidence will be examined in order to render a final decision on proposed rates, the board said in a release announcing its decision. Approval of 1974 rates on an interim basis was made in response to an application from Calgary Power on the final day of the hearings. The application was made in order that the company might begin to recover its "allowed revenue" for 1974 In a decision last September, the board established Calgary Power's estimated total revenue requirements for 1974 at As directed by the board, the company then tiled a revised schedule of proposed rates, in order to provide its revenue requirements. The board said Calgary Power "has met the burden of proof which lies upon it to show that the interim rates are just and reasonable." The order requires that the company "undertakes to refund to its customers such amounts as the board may direct if any of the interim rates are changed by the subsequent decision of the board on Calgary Power's current rate application."

STOCK CHUTES REGULAR OR AUTOMATIC HEAD GATE JEAN MARCHAND OTTAWA (CP) The government will consider appointing a special supervisor to coordinate the movement of railway freight cars and speed lag- ging western grain shipments. Transport Minister Jean Marchand told the Commons Thursday he believes such an appointment will help and he will discuss it with his cabinet colleagues. A request for such a supervisor was made earlier by John Diefenbaker Mr. Marchand said he is "inclined to support entirely" the suggestion outlined by the former prime minister. Mr. Diefenbaker said the official should have authority to order the railways to provide enough freight cars to handle grain and other commodities. If legislation were introduced, it would be approved quickly by the House, he said. Outside the House, Mr. Marchand said a supervisor would put the government in closer touch with the day-to-day rail car situation. But the idea had to be discussed in cabinet. He said the public has a right to expect the transport minister to know the transport situation across the country. "I must confess I don't know, not in all Mr. Marchand, just back from a meeting with western-- provincial transport" ministers, told the House that Mr. Die- fenbaker's suggestion was Boxcar chief plan mulled discussed and he plans to recommend a rail-car monitoring system' to the cabinet. Mr. Diefenbaker said the lag in grain shipments has reached desperate proportions and grain contracts are being lost around the world. Don Mazankowski (PC Vegreville) es- timated lost sales at million. Les Benjamin Lake Centre) said shipments are cars behind schedule at Vancouver and behind at Thunder Bay, Ont. He said the railways should be nationalized in an effort to improve service. Prime Minister Trudeau asked him to present his proposal in writing "if the honorable member can work it out." Mr. Marchand said the government has approved a program to repair freight cars and increase the number available for grain shipments. The CPR had also announced plans to build several thousand new cars but this would not mean immediate relief. Mr. Mazankowski asked whether the government is investigating a National Farmers Union charge that the railways are "deliberately sabotaging shipments" to force a rate increase for grain shipped to Vancouver Otto Lang, minister responsible for the wheat .board, said he discussed the accusation with Mr. Marchand but it had no foundation. The railways have shipping targets and are JOHN DIEFENBAKER trying to meet them, he added. If problems could not be overcome, the gov- ernment would step in. Mr. Mazankowski suggested that trucks be mobilized to supplement rail shipments, but Mr. Lang said only a limited' number of trucks is available. Mr. Marchand admitted he has no short-term answer but said he hopes for a solution soon. Jake Epp (PC Provencher) had said loaded boxcars are standing on sidings for up to three weeks in the West. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield asked whether the railways had demanded help for boxcar repairs on grounds that the cars were "not worth re- pairing" or because they wanted a subsidy. Mr. Marchand said the government felt obliged to help in the repair bills since the cars are needed for grain shipments, on which profits are low. Bill knight niboia) asked about getting Canadian freight cars back from United States railways. Mr. Marchand said U.S. cars are used in Canada, too, and one of the reasons he wants a monitoring authority is to keep track of how many cars cross the border each way. Mr. Knight said there are half as many U.S. cars in Canada as Canadian cars in the U.S. Radical new role urged for Canadian doctors 1 Stock Corral Gates, and Fence Posts are also available at... 6ENERAL FARM SUPPLIES Coutts Highway Box 1202 Phone 328-1141 AMA ROAD REPORT as ol 8 a.m. Friday.

It also says doctors should not treat their patients as individuals, but as members of a family or larger group in which social relations have an effect on health. The paper, published in the current issue of the CMA Journal, is the result of a two- year study by a CMA committee headed by Or. Anna Mary Burditt of Saint John. N.B.
