Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta B _ mitBRIDGE Saturday, October T, Air industry off the beam JASPER (CD Industry Minister Fred I'oncook said Friday the "topsy-like" growl h of the air industry within pro- vincial boundaries has received only casual attention from the federal povemmenl. uncertainty ami misunderstanding have dis- couraged the orderly develop- ment of air transportation in Canada." He told the annual convention of the Alberta Aviation Council that Alberta cannot afford to accept federal policies that "fail to recognize the particular needs of our people." He said about a year ago Premier Peter Louglieed as- signed to lus department the re- sponsibility for the transporta- tion industry. "I was requested to identify the problem areas: Tlie growth potential and to ensure that federal policies enhance the de- velopment of this industry 1 n Alberta." As a result, he said, he soon vill submit to tlie provincial cabinet a transportation re- search and development pro- gram. "Our air transportation policy must incorporate an assurance that an adequate level of ser- vice will be provided to meet the requirements of both urban and rural Albertans. "To accomplish this we must commit ourselves to market, studies, an assessment of pres- ent facilities, a development program, capital expenditures, and resolve our inter-relation with the federal authority." The development plan must gauge the present and projected population trends, he said, so that "we will be prepared to provide transportation for peo- ple and merclianirise from a network of fields within the province." "We must, of course, give spe- cial consideration lo the re- quirements peculiar lo our re- source development A fundamental guideline of the policy "is our rietcrmirm tiou to support Alberta-based carriers in providing passenger and air freight service within the province." 'We know from experience that any company that venture' into tlie commercial field mus assume a substantial capita investment risk unless it i: granted an exclusive and pro- tected route schedule from the federal Air Transport Commit- tee. "It is worth noting (hat no Alberta carrier enjoys such a privilege, and has in fact been discouraged by Ottawa from competing with 'out-of-province' carriers." Support for these carriers must include route development and improved terminal and air- field facilities. "We arc not satisfied with the ATC method of granting li- cences and question its entire rationale in awarding routes in Alberta. "In the event that tlie federal authorities are not prepared to either consult with us, or ac- cept our governments' rec- ommendations on allocation of routes entirely our prov- ince, we are prepared to assert our right to regulate all provin- cial air carriers."
