The rezoning was requested by the owners of the York Hotel to facilitate improvements to the building. According to the I960 Zoning Bylaw, the hotel is non-conforming, being in exis- tence as such before the bylaw was passed. It is allowed to re- main as a non-conforming building but with the stipula- tion that no additions be built. Council was not opposed to the improvements to the hotel but defeated the rezoning by- law because of future consider- ations on the widening of 13th St. N. AK the hotel sits, it is too close to the road to allow for widening of 13th St. at that lo- cation. Council accepted the planning department's advice that expansion of the hotel now might make the cost of acquir- ing land alongside the hotel for widening the street much greater in the future. The cost of reconstructing the York Hotel to accommodate widening of 13th St. is es- timated at Council also accepted a city manager recommendation that the street-widening program be continued on the west side of 13th St. N. and that parking be banned on the street as re- qaired. One qualification of that aclion is to acquire land 'or off-street parking to accom- modate patrons of the 13lh St. CANADA'S FINEST OLD FUR STORAGE Call 327-4348 for Rapid Pick-up CANADIAN FURRIERS Paramount Theatre Building GAflY AIR CONDITIONERS STARTING AT Charlron Hill UcJ. 1262 2nd Avc.

He said it will enable stu- dents lo see dial things which are done 111 schools arfi done for a reason and this will help them to sec the reasoning which they may have misunderstood. Trustee Reg Turner express- ed concern that such programs may be an indication of high schools trying to prepare peo- ple for working instead of liv- ing. "The funclion of a public school is lo educate for living, not he said. Mr. Turner added that he was nol criticizing the planned program at LCI "But, I don't Hunk we should ever be pushed into being orienled towards vocational education. 'I don't Ihink this program gives any indication this is what will happen. I think it is a good one for the sludents." It has also been learned that the man most likely lo be named to head the local teach- ers' bargaining commiltee is Joe Lakic, principal of Fleet- wood-Bawrien Elementary School. One hurdle which will have to be cleared before the talks be- gin is to decide what will and will not he negotiated. The board is opposed to ne- gotiating working conditions, instead to leave tliis area in Lhe hands of a co-or- dinating commiltee comprising regular teachers and administrators. The city teachers themselves support this view. If the public board does de- cide to bargain locally, there could be a split in the teacher negotiations, in that separate school leachers in the city would still have to negotiate with the two-city school au- thorities association. To date, the separate board has indicated it prefers to slick by its guns of unity rather than go il alone in the upcoming talks. Last year was the first time the four school boards in the two cities banded together to bargain a contract with their teachers, and the system was blamed by bolh sides for the lengthy negotiations and near- strike situation. If the public board follows tlirough with the move toward abandoning t h e association, contract talks with public school teachers could be under way within a month. The current agreement ex- pires at the end of this year. ICLIFF BLACK, Certified Denial Mechanic HACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDO.
