Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THI IRHMIDGI HMAID W71 Maurice Western The cost of snow removal People who live in rainy regions claim rain has one tremendous ad vantage over snow you dont have to shovel But rain has one other important advantage these regions are unaware you dont have to pay to have it removed it just runs down the drams in nice

sanding and snow removal com Figures for this year have not yet been released but with the extra heavy snowfall in January it is rea sonable to expect this figure to be in larger the costs of snow removal are downright which has been snowbound all already is approaching the 16 million having had to borrow S10 million from next years Metropolitan Toronto has salted and shovelled mil lion worth of 12 per cent more than last winters crop which was described as Even rainy Vancouver spent in snow this past while prairie cities went through their usual allotted Sums of such magnitude bring into question our whole philosophy of snow In another few weeks the cities in the snow belt will have noth ing to show for all their millions the money will have gone down the drain like the melting It has been suggested that large cities like Montreal and Tor onto should perhaps be looking at al to their snow One wonders if it is worth so much in taxes to make it possible for pri vate cars to be able to drive down town all If the snow removal funds were put into new methods of public the desire to use cars would not be nearly so Whatever way you look at the person who comef up with a real useful

Australia a national health a national development bank and a firmer foreign But he was not very popular and his policies were often too haphazard to be Now the new prime Wil liam McMahon is stuck with he is an experienced politi cian and the fact that he has to pull his Liberal party together to face the 1972 election will not likely distress him overly the Labor party sees the disorder and unrest within the Liberal party as a golden opportunity to make a comeback after over 20 years in the But Labor party officials are having difficulty with the Australian Council of Trade Unions and

which control Home He said at the time There is no decision yet on what we will do in the event that my confidence in the like ly success of these negotiations proves to be There may well be necessary Greenes confidence hav ing proved the ne cessary action is now about to be The minister did not offer details beyond the general statement that govern men officials are negotiating with Brown for the
