But tempers flared and associate planner William Helton was castigated over the commission executive's recent approval of the CPR request to transfer properties here to Marathon a CPR subsidiary. The commission earlier said these lands must revert to the Crown but later legal opinion said the commission must have something more than philosophy behind its rejection of the CPR land transfer requests. As it stands some lands have been transferred and at Claresholm for have been turned down on the basis the transfers would not be in the best interests of sound planning. The Fort Macleod deal has been approved with certain conditions. The railway must give up some land for a street. Another set by the is that the lands remain as use.''

He said the 12-man executive passed a transaction that affects Fort Macleod and Fort Macleod wasn't represented. think the regional planning board is just taking too much authoVity on said Mayor Edgar.

The letter will be addressed to the chairman and all elected officials 'sitting on the executive.
