SIMPSONS bears A solid place to plan tomorrow By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) The solid old building on Ottawa's his- toric Sussex Drive has had a colorful career serving school- boys, soldiers, a hotelkeeper and a bishop. Now the old LaSalle Acad- emy is shrugging off a brief retirement to operate under a new urban af- fairs department. Lightly used in the last two years, the building has been acquired for million by the department to house the young urban affairs ministry. The academy will get face- lifting that will restore the older sections to their original style. Two wings are more than 100 years old. H. P. Oberlander, secretary of the department, said the restoration is an "experiment to show that all historic build- ings can be re-used." It is also a move by the urban affairs department to practise what it preaches. The government policy, as out- lined in proposed amendments to the National Housing Act, is to encourage rehabilitation of older houses and neighbor- hoods. The building is on the edjze of a 50-acre area in Ottawa's lower town set aside for reha- bilitation by the federal gov- ernment. The oldest section, a three- storey, rough stone building, was built about 1843. It was the home of the first Roman Catholic bishop of Ottawa, Jo- seph-Eugene Bruno Guiges, between 1847 and 1850. Now a plain, flat-roofed structure, it mil be restored to its original style as a two- storey building with a sloping roof, department officials say. Linked to the old bishop's palace is a four-storey, plain- cut stone structure that histo- rians say was the birthplace of the present-day University of Ottawa. Built in 1852, it was the original home of By- town College, forerunner of the university. Later, in 1866, it was a bar- racks for soldiers called up to meet the threat of raids across the United States bor- der by the Fenians. The Fenians were Irishmen opposed to British rule in Ire- land. Some thought that by creating disturbances in Brit- ish North America they could undermine British authority in Ireland. There were several minor skirmishes along the border with Fenian raiders. The building was a hotel briefly before it was bought by a Roman Catholic order for use as a school in 1870. There were later additions lo the school in 1934 and 1965. These newer wings will be changed considerably for use by the department, officials say. LaSalle Academy students moved to a new building two years ago and the old school was only sporadically used by a variety of tenants until the urban affairs department stepped in. The price paid for the square feet of space is considered reasonable by Ot- tawa realtors. Renovations are expected to start soon. The older sections of academy, while not beautiful, reflect the solid style of archi- tecture brought to Canada by Scottish stonemasons in l9Lh century. surface (strip) mine for coal in the Crow-Bow Forest Re- serve might have on the sport fisheries of the Oldman and Livingstone Rivers, and sev- eral tributaries of these streams. "As has been pointed out in a number of news releases in the Lethbridge and Cal- gary Heralds an immense mining scheme for coal in the area bounded by the Oldman and Livingstone Riv- ers is being studied by a ccnsbrlium cf several mining companies. These companies are: Can Pac Minerals Ltd., Canadian Industrial Gas and Oil Ltd. Coleman Collieries Ltd., Bralorn Can- Fer Resources Ltd.. and Scurry Rainbow Oil Ltd. Ex- ploration for coal in their leases has been underway for the past several years. PRODUCTION" "'According to the news re- leases the coal deposits pro- ven to date are apparently sufficient for production of (two to three million tons a year for 15 years. Only strip mining is apparently feasi- ble, and tunnel mining is not being considered. It is possi- ble that the processed coal would be shipped to markets by a rail line parallel to j the Oldman River from the Canadian Pacific Railway at j Cowley to the coal prepara- j tion site. i "The feasibility of a town- I site being located in the Fore- est Reserve near the junction of the Oldman and Living- stone Rivers is also being stu- died according to previous re- leases by mine company offi- cials. "They state that an inten- sive strip mine would probab- ly be located along Cabin Ridge, and in the nearby area, and would eventually bn restricted in an area of about 4 square miles at ele- vations from approximately fiOOO-8400 feet which is gener- ally above timberline. PRELIMINARY "The mining scheme is still in the preliminary stage and it is not known whether op- erations will be permitted. proven coal de- posits occur within the water- shed areas of both the Old- j man and Livingstone Rivers, i and a number of tributaries of these rivers, the type of j land use associated strip I mines could degrade the water qualify and discharge pattern of any or all of these streams, thereby reducing their sport fishery potential" in OFF led Outboard Motors PERSONAL SHOPPING ONLY LIMITED QUANTITIES SAVE 103" 7.5 H.P.
