Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta _ 1HI UTHBRIOGI HWAID Memti 20, 1973 Regime 'hard for bachelors1 Trudeau likes hard-working ministers in cabinet OTTAWA (CP1 "The present regime is hard for laughed Jean Marchand. The transport minister, a married man, said in a week- end interview the temptation is strong for Trudeau government ministers to stay in Ottawa tied to their desks. The prime minister likes hard-working ministers ami heavy workloads leave little time for forays outside tlic capi- tal or (or socializing while at home. "But If we don't meet with people, the problem is tliat people don't Mr. Marchand said. The minister said he believes in practical problems on the scene with the people af- fected. A feeling of remoteness from federal ministers in Ottawa probably contributed to Liberal .osses in the West in the federal election, he said. Mr. Morchand's remarks came during a rapid weekend isit to Calgary, Inuvik, and YellowkniCc in the Northwest Territories. The Irip was de- signed lo give the transport minister a first-hand look at airport facilities and local prob- lems. He opened new airport build- mlgs in Inuvik and Yellowknife Saturday and announced a million program to Install air navigational aids in the North. He also made public new safely rules for small commercia' air- craft weighing pounds or less. The trip also gave Mr. Marchand a chance to meet local Liberal officials and discuss party fortunes in the West and North. He said lie docs not expect a rapid iml- provement in Liberal popularity hi the region. The shaggy-haired minister, an ouloing and articulate man, said lack of contact with minis- ters helps widen the gap be- tween Ottawa and the rest of the country. The prime minister wanted his ministers to work hard and he had increased the work of cabinet committees. "When every week you have to attend cabinet committees and the House and work In your department, you don't have much time to go said Mr. Marchand. But it was a mistake to get out of touch with the country he added. "A lot of ministers are prob- ably not as good politician! M they should he THiNC IS HAPPENING AT...

Transit system jroblems beaten TORONTO (CP) mien i drillers for a northward exten- sion of Toronto's downtown sub- way sank a soil-testing shaft in a valley called Hogg's Hollow, a three-foot geyser of wafer spouted up. "It was a small Old Faith- says a Toronto Transit Commission official. Old Faithful and other prob- lems Have heen beaten and on March 31 the TTC will open a 2.G8-mile stretch which is part of a SMO-million undertaking to bring rapid transit to residents of Metropolitan Toronto's north. Well, not quite all the prob- lems are licked. None of the 16 escalators In the two new stations is working and passengers will have to climb as many as 80 steps to street level. They will not be moving until about six monlhs after the end of the current long strike of the International Union of Elevator Constructors. The new stretch, from the subway system's present north ern terminus tt Eglinton Ave mic and the main business ar tery of Yonge Street to Yor Mills Road in the borough o North York, will bring the un dergronnd mileage to 23.8. Con struction began in late 1968. Next March, opening of an other 2.73-mile extension wl push the line farther up Yong to Finch Avenue. Part of th: section was due for inclusion the March 31 inaugural but i contractor ran into severe labo trouble in 1971 and early 1S72. It was just south of th stretch that the geyser and i attendant prcb'ems caused tt builders their sharpest technical headaches. Yonge Street at this point is crossed by a small tri- butary of the Don River on its way to Lake Ontario. It was no trick lo divert TO et of the stream's course for ut-and-cover construction but main troubles came when he crews drilled inlo an under- round swamp that sent the wa- er squirting up in artesian :yle. A big area of the swamp had o be dried out to acommodate oth the rail tunnel and an un- erground station s H experts did lis by pumping more water nto the ground. The method is called the 'Slang eductor dewatering sys- em." Hundreds of pipes were pushed into the ground verti- cally and hooked up on the sur- ace, with a network of con- necting pipes, and water was >umped in 24 hours a day for weeks. By some law of hydraulics, this created a suction that caused more water lo come put ban went in, By excavation Lime, the swamp was dry. The water is back in now, but in the meantime the station structure has been installed with concrete floors up to 8V4 feet thick and walls four feet times the nor- mal thickness. "If anything, the threat of water speeded up says W. H. Paterson, the TTCs general manager of subway construction who is expected to set some kind of a modern-day record by bringing the Eglinton- Finch line home within the cost estimate. Partly, this will come through economies on the northernmost section of using digging down from the surface and filling in later. The just- completed mileage through a more thickly travelled section was done by tunnelling except for station vicinities.
