Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 - THE LETHBRIDOE HERAIO -Wednesday, March 17,1971 �-- Kootenay, Elk railway legal battle continues OTTAWA (CP) - The lengthy, troubled history of the proposed Kootenay and Elk railway entered a new phase here with a detailed legal argument intended to show that no constitutional obstacles stand in the way of implementation. Jack Alley of Vancouver, counsel for the Kootenay and Elk Railway Co., told a Cana-d i a n transport commission hearing the company has been legally incorporated in British Columbia according to powers allotted to the provinces under the British North America Act. Jumbo jets prove white elephants WASHINGTON (AP) - The jumbo jet, once heralded as the airline's dream, has become a large economic headache for the already financially-pressed industry. Though more people are trav- No tax increase in budget FREEtERICTON (CP) - New Brunswick's new Progressive Conservative government brought down its first budget Tuesday, predicting record over-all capital and current expenditures of $512.5 million and a surplus on current account of $17 million. No tax increases were forecast. Total current and capital account revenues in the 1971-72 fiscal year are expected to reach $481.3 million for an over-all deficit of $31.2 million. However, offset by sinking fund earnings this would be cut to $26.7 million, thus increasing the province's net debt to $355 million. The budget, tabled in the legislature by Finance Minister Jean-Maurice Simard, predicted current expenditures of $435.2 million and capital expenditures of $77.3 million for 1971-72. Current revenues are expected to be $452.2 million.

The airlines, in searching for an answer, have turned increasingly to gimmicks, such as ripping out seats in the rear compartment and replacing them with a standup bar for coach passengers. Last week, American Airlines received permission to convert the back end of the plane into a 17-seat lounge with stand-up bar, for coach-class passengers. First-class passengers in the 747 have had exclusive use of an upper deck lounge all along. American said the 747 "faces a crisis in passenger appeal and must be made more attractive." Northeast Airlines, which lacks 747s, told the Civil Aeronautics Board it is being clobbered by the 747s of its New York-Florida competitors, Eastern and National airlines. Yet both have complained of decreasing passenger loads. Imperial Bank assets climb TORONTO (CP) - Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce reports first  quarter assets up $992 million to $10,320 million compared with the first three months of 1970. L. G. Greenwood, president, said the balance of revenue during the quarter declined in comparison with first-quarter 1970 when the increase was "quite exceptional." The bank reports total revenues increased by $4 million to $1.8 million but expenses rose $14 million to $171 million. Balance of revenue after provision for income taxes was $13 million-down $4.6 million, or 26 per cent. the.SPOTLIGHT'S on |CAPITOL'S EXCITING... SPECIAL FURNITURE SHOW and SALE COMMENCING THURSDAY, March 18-9 a.m. Sharp) See Our Ad On Page 19 Of Today's Herald! 326 5th STREET SOUTH, LETHBRID6E PHONE 327-8578 The hearing was adjourned until Thursday morning, when it is expected final arguments will be completed. The current turmoil results from almost a full year of deuberations by Kootenay and Elk and the firm's last appearance before the commission in January. The matter first arose when Kootenay and Elk, a subsidiary of the U.S. - owned Burlington Northern Inc. and Crow's Nest Industries Ltd., applied to the commission to build a second coal-carrying railway in B.C. The proposed railway would carry coal from Natal in Southeastern B.C. to Roosville, on the Canada-U.S. border. It would be picked up in Roos-ville by Burlington Northern for shipment through the U.S. and back into B.C. to be picked up by vessels in the suparport at Robert's Bank. This method of shipment would be in addition to CP Rail, which now is the only line carrying B.C. coal to the West Coast for shipment to Japan. Kootenay and Elk made its application while challenging the transport commission's right to hear the case. The firm argued that it was incorporated provincially, operated in only one province and was subject only to provincial jurisdiction. The commission overruled the challenge and proceeded with the hearing. CP Rail was the chief opponent of the application, arguing originally that implementation would deprive it of freight revenues and economies which,1 the firm said, rightfully belonged to it. CAN DO THE JOB CP Rail also said it could carry all the coal which had to be shipped without any help and this would create many more jobs in Canada. CP Rail counsel E. E. Saunders challenged' the constitutionality of Kootenay and Elk at the January hearing. He said the firm was not properly constituted in law because the B.C. government did not have the power under the BNA Act to incorporate a company whose basic purpose was international rather than local. Replying Tuesday Mr. Alley said the commission must consider only the proposal as presented by Kootenay and Elk. He said that showed that the railway would be transporting coal between two points in B.C. only. The fact that it would be picked up by another railway later should not enter the picture. Some observers feel the constitutional issue will finally go to the Supreme Court of Canada, regardless of what ruling the commission makes. Kootenay and Elk, meanwhile, is anxious to get a final decision fast so the firm can cancel its plans or begin construction. Eaton charged with speeding BARRIE, Ont. (CP) - Grand Prix racing driver George Eaton of Toronto was remanded Tuesday to May 11 in provincial court here to face a charge of speeding. Eaton was charged by provincial police Sept. 29, 1970, with travelling 90 miles an hour in a 60-mile-an-hour zone on highway 400. LaKAY'S LADIES' WEAR LTD. DOWNTOWN STORE ONLY 712 4th AVENUE S.

The plant, a joint venture of Dome Petroleum Ltd., and Trans-Canada Gas Products Ltd., is to have a processing capacity of 1.5 billion cubic feet a day.
