Shown from Miss South Miss Miss Miss Philippines and Miss Airlines welcome new world routes By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Air Canada and CP Air have welcomed the federal government's new international air policy as giv- ing the two airlines oppor- tunities to start building for round-the-world routes. Plan- ning will start immediately. Both airlines expressed satisfaction that the new them with a broad basis for long range planning. Yves Air Canada saw the new policy providing the government- owned airline access for the first time to Sduth the Middle East and Asia. John president of CP voiced his gratifica- tion that the revised govern- ment policy had been finally announced. He said the privately owned company can now move ahead with fidence and in expanding its services. Meantime Mr. Pratte and other Air Canada officials were bracing Monday for the meeting Tuesday with the members of 'the commons transportation committee. Don air tran- sport spokesman for the Progressive has told the house he has many questions on Air Canada's operations he wants to put to the government air- line. In its redivision of the world for the country's two major airlines Transport Minister Jean Marchand appears to have done the impossible and devised a policy which on their first examination left both airlines reasonably satisfied. He gave the lucrative Italy route to CP Air but balanced that by awarding the potentially lucr- ative route to Yugoslavia to Air Canada. Mr. Marchand explained that Milan went to CP Air because the government followed the practice of not allocating two airlines to one country outside of the United States. Had Milan gone to Air Canada it would have es- tablished a precedent and CP Air might then have sought rights to penetrate the lucrative British market that Air Canada now serves. The policy was one of three air policy statements to be made by Mr. Marchand. The other two will come later. The allocation of U.S. destinations is yet to be decided. Canada and that country are still negotiating. The third state- ment will deal with level Mr. Gilmer of CP Air noted that the new policy gives to Air Canada nearly all.of Africa as well as eight countries which are in the areas allocated to CP Air un- der the previous government policy laid down in 1989. A segment of North Africa is the only new area assigned to CP Air and no territory has been taken from Air said the CP Air president. Consequently he hoped that early action would be taken in connection with CP Air's long standing requests for relaxa- tion of the routing and capacity restrictions on the transcontinental services within together with granting to CP Air of approx- imately 50 per cent of the new US-Canada routes when the new Canada-US agreement is signed. Mr. Pratte expressed his pleasure that as a result of the' new policy neither air are restricted from developing around the world routes. He was also pleased that Mr. Marchand went out of his way to emphasize that Air Canada is to continue to be designated pre-eminent carrier in terms of its domestic role and its inter- national role. The new policy provides Air Canada with the greater op- portunities for service that it has wanted so said the chairman.

Other countries already have reduced speed limits banned Sunday shortened work weeks and reduced home and office heating. It is likely the federal and provincial governments will take the lead in energy re- straints. There has been much talk of lowering temperatures and cutting back on lighting in government offices.

Police would be authorized to wiretap for up to 36 hours if no judge could be found in an emergency to sign a permit. There was speculation late Friday that the bill would not survive beyond debate on the proposed amendments. Also due to be considered are Parole Act changes and one of two sets of amendments to the Canada Pension Plan Act. The Parole Act amendements would ex- pand the National Parole Board to 19 from nine mem- bers. The Canada Pension Plan amendments would exempt certain religious sects from contributing to the plan.

CUPE was doing an effective job in organizing these employees but the CLC was not. There is no effective centre for Canadian labor and there should be new initiatives to fill the he said. The CLQdid not meet the needs of CUPE and many other unions. The congress officers could explain in detail the deficien- cies of federal government figures indicating American- based unions take in more than they spend on Canadian members. But the CLC did not provide research that Cana- dian workers could use in their negotiations. CUPE has claimed jurisdic- tion over provincial govern- ment workers who join the but in September thy CLC executive council voted to allow direct congress affiliation by provincial groups from Prince Edward Island and New- foundland. CUPE delegates decided in 1971 to withhold their fees to the CLG if the provincial groups were admitted as af- filiates. If they hold back their fees for longer than three months. CUPE would be suspended from the congress. Mr. Little told delegates that the dispute with the CLC is over whether the congress is ready to accept political and economic changes.
