He said co operatives diffe] from companies hi two impor tant ways: They distribute profits to members or clients on the basis of patronage, not the number of shares held; and each member has one vote in a co-operative, while company shareholders have as man; votes as shares.

Taylor Opposes Railway Service Cut In Alberta EDMONTON (CP) The Ca- nadian Pacific Railway should not be pel-milled to close its passenger rail service soulh of Edmonton, Alberta Highways Minister Gordon Taylor said Tuesday. The CPR has applied to the Canadian Transport Commis- sion for permission to discon- tinue passenger service be- tween Edmonton and Calgary, GORDON TAYLOR Calgary and Lelhbridge and Lethbridge and Medicine Hat, claiming the services are un- economic. Mr. Taylor told the CTC's railway transport committee at a public healing that the ser- vices are unprofitable because the CPR does nothing to devel- op passenger train patronage. Until the railway shows some evidence of good faith to try to compete with other forms of transportation, he said, it should be ordered to continue the ser- vices and to absorb "so-called" losses. Mr. Taylor said competition is the life blood of free enter- prise and competition in the transportation industry is an ab- solute necessity if the user is to be protected.

"In the meantime, the CP! should be ordered to contimn reasonable train service in this country." Under existing legislation, Jie CTC decides the service must be continued it can order uyment of subsidies to th 3PR amounting to 80 per cen of the loss involved. Mr. Taylor said an exarapl of how the CPR has discour aged passenger patronage, "ap- jearing to be a deliberate long .erm is when Jarg numbers of people boarded the railway's dayliner in Red' Deer a few years ago. "Additional ears were ntf added to the train. Rather benches were taken out of th and put into the bag gage section of the lone day iner unit and many passenger ad to stand all the way."
