Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Integrated passenger service ordered Friday, November 5, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 O'JTAWA (CP) The Cana- I dian transport commission Thursday said it an inte- grated transcontinental passen- ger train service in operation by fall. The commission said it will be talking with the Canadian Na- tional Railways; and the Cana- dian Pacific Railway and the public about methods of inte- grating the CNR and CP Hail services before that date. Bui in outlining integration proposals, the; commission said for [he first time that ii is will- ing to consider job .security costs as legitimate expenses in the railways' claim for subsi- dies. It uas concerned that the job security of present railway em- ployees should be maintained as much as possible. The commission was com- menting on 250 brirfs submitted following its request last April for proposals on mushing the transcontinental operations of the CN'H and CP Rail. TJ! decisions earlier this year the commission identified lotal lasses of about S30 million an- nually by CN's Super Continen- tal and CP Rail's Canadian, I he two remaining Irar.sconlinenlal passenger trains. The commission ruled that S both trains were uneconomic. j making them eligible for federal 'subsidies of up to per cenl. But the railways wore told tlif-: an integrated system should be set up. Subsequently, the commission called for briefs on how a rationalized service j cculd be sel up. In its Thursday aimounce- mcnt, the com mission said it had not yet discusM'd the infc- i grntion idea with the railways as the rail companies wauled to reserve comment until the com- mission came forth with a plan. But this discussion would now begin. S1IAHK OI-TICKSV Topics will include possible changes in routes and frequency of service and proposals for sharing facilities such as mil- lions and ticket offices. The commission rejected any reduction of service during the busy summer months but said it is willing to talk about reduction of off-season train capacity.

The growing stockpile is s millions tons. That is four ci Mocks of the yellow chemica a height of 35 storeys. By 1975. there will be ID cily blocks full and by 1980 about 32 blocks worth, 50 million tons. Most of the sulphur is a by- product of the booming natural j gas production.

Into this worsening scene has stepped Dr. Alan Vroom with evidence that sulphur can be used for ever y thing from moulded washbasins and toilet bowls to highway paving. Dr. Vroom, research director of Consolidated-Bathurst Ltd., has produced a blueprint of how to shrink the huge sulphur piles as a study for the National Re- search Council. He says Canada has good prospects of basing new prod- ucts and new industries on sul- phur. NEC's governing c o it n c 11. holding a two-day meeting here, urged the federal government to take steps (o follow up Dr. Vroom's recommendations. Dr. Vroom told a news confer- ence that action already has started, particularly by the fed- eral and provincial govern- ments, to set up a non-profit institute or company for techni- cal and commercial develop- ment of new products from sul- phur. The institute would be fi- nanced by the sulphur-produc- ing industries and the govern- mcnls of Canada and Alberta. where most of the stockpile and production is. What is needed first is a study in depth of the prospects in par- ticular areas such as highway paving and a pilot plant to test the ways to lurn raw sulphur into more useful form by the most economic methods. "There is no question of tin; economic justification for such a program." Dr. Vroom said. An obvious area for concen- trated study is sulphur asphalt in which considerable research has been done by Shell Canada. Results are to be published later this month. France has an extensive pro- gram of testing sulphur asphalt on highways. Sulphur increases asphalt's bonding capacity and its strength. And it enhances skid resistance properties of high- way paving. Dr. Vroom also sees sulphur becoming a major ingredient of I preformed products such as ce- ment blocks, slab wall sections, insuhiting materials and other building products. He reports that a McGill Uni- versity researcher has devised ways to use sulphur as a key ingredient of moulded wash- room facilities and many home furnishings. 11 may be lar more cconumi- cal than plastics and similar service by cither railway. The CNR and CP Rail should con- i linuc to operate under "scpa- rate identity and responsibil- ity." Among suggestions for route j changes; i Rail could operate the 1 sole service from Montreal to North Bay. Ont., while CNR could operate the only transcon- tinental trains from Toronto to North Bay (rather than Capreol, 1 Ont. Both railways now clupli-: cale service from Montreal and Toronto to Northern Ontario. Northern Ontario to I Winnipeg, the CP Hail route could be used one day and the CNR the next. service should continue on both rail lines be- tween Winnipeg and Kamloops, j B.C., though some proposed thai the C'P Rail line could be used one day and the CNR route the next. two railways should continue operating side-by-side on I h u Kamloops-Vancouver riJlltC. There could be a common fare structure with tickets in- ter-changeable between the two 1 railways. Terminals could be consoli- dated at such cities as Monl- real. Winnipeg and Vancouver, and reserve train equipment could be concentrated at certain points across Canada so that the CNR and CP Rail could share I passenger train cars when nec- es.sarv.
