Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Refuelling operations checked By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The federal government has ordered a na- tionwide survey of refuelling operations at commercial air- ports, following a series of questions raised in the House of Commons by Winnipeg MP Dan McKenzie. However, an official of the transport department has de- nied allegations by Mr McKenzie South Centre) that Air Canada jetliners are endangering the lives of their passengers by using the somewhat con- troversial JP-4 gasoline But L. W F Beasleigh, a department official, has ad- mitted to Mr. McKenzie in writing that the use of JP-4 fuel for commercial operations has been "quiered" a number of times in the past few years. Mr McKenzie raised the matter in the House of Com- mons and in letters to Tran- sport Minister Jean Marchand following the explosion of an Air Canada DC-8 jetliner dur- ing refuelling operations at Toronto International Airport June 21 this year.

Sunday trucking backed TORONTO (CP) Com- panies using trucks to tran- sport their goods over long distances lined up Wednesday in support of a Winnipeg firm's bid before the Canadian transport commission to have commercial trucking allowed on Sunday. But lawyers for both the On- tario and Quebec governments, in cross- examination, succeeded in getting admissions from offi- cials of the companies that Sunday transportation is not "absolutely necessary" for their operations. The question of necessity has become a main point in two days of public hearings before the three-man com- mission, considering applications from two Win- nipeg highway carriers for ex- emption from a Lord's Day Act prohibition of Sunday trucking. Reimer Express Lines Ltd and Imperial Roadways Ltd have applied for permission to transport goods on Sundays between Winnipeg in the west and Toronto and Montreal in the east. Harry Kuziw, traffic manager for T. Eaton Co Ltd in Winnipeg, said that as part of the service industry his company depended on speedy delivery of merchandise to Western Canada outlets RAILWAYS WORK SUNDAY Only five per cent was Public hearings slated before dam is built The Winnipeg MP claimed the explosion and fire that followed was partially the fault of Air Canada using JP-4 and he backed up his argu- ment by pointing out thaf Flight International magazine has criticized Air Canada for using JP-4 and said the Cana- dian national airline is one of the few major airlines to still use that particular fuel mix Mr. Beasleigh points out that all fuels are hazardous in themselves, but that Air Canada always follows proper safety procedures He says that Canadian con- ditions, especially in northern Canada, tend to make JP-4 the best fuel mix for this country Nevertheless, the transport lepartment has decided to einforce and double check safety procedures during refuelling operations. EDMONTON (CP) A public hearing will be held before a storage dam is built on the Red Deer River, says a provincial environment department spokesman. In addition a public advisory committee has been formed to make suggestions about inital planning for the dam, which would probably be located at the junction of the Red Deer and Raven Rivers 30 miles southwest of the City of Red Deer. The committee is headed by Mayor R. E. Barrett of Red Deer and includes represen- tatives from Unifarm. the Alberta Fish and Game Association, the Alberta Wildlife Foundation and nearby county and town governments. The province will conduct engineering, economic and en- vironmental studies before proceeding with construction, which could not begin before 1975, says Reg Bailey, head of environmental planning and research for the department The dam, which would cost between million and million, is being built to create uniform flow in the Red Deer River, which currently varies to cubic feet in spring from less than 100 in winter The dam would reduce flood hazard for the cities of Red Deer and Drumheller and provide for year-round recreational activities. It could also boost oxygen levels in the river, which have declined recently to less than the amount needed to main- tain healthy fish populations. transported by truck, he said, adding that it was not necessary to have such merchandise moved on Sun- day The remainder was shipped by railways which operate on Sundays D. W Burtnick, counsel for the Ontario government, ask- ed how Mr Kuziw reconciled his support of the Sunday trucking applications with Eaton's longstanding ban on Sunday commercial ac- tivities. "We do not, have not and quite likely will not open our stores or carry on business on Sundays." Mr. Kuziw said. But he and other witnesses referred to Reimer Express testimony that over-the-road freight costs might have to be increased by 25 per cent if Sunday truck driving is denied, preventing un- interrupted seven-day scheduling. Edward Chapman, head of traffic for Canadian Ingersoll- Rand Ltd.. Sherbrooke. Que., said it takes up to three days longer to get pipeline com- pressor equipment to the com- pany's Calgary assembly plant using "piggyback rail" rather than road transport. His preference was sup- ported by James McGee, traf- fic manager of Michelin Tires (Canada) Ltd. of Montreal, basically a distribution operation. Truck service was quicker and more assured, he said. register VANCOUVER (CP) A total of persons registered in British Colum- bia and the Yukon during the 60-day amnesty period for il- legal immigrants to apply for landed status without penalty for entering or remaining in Canada illegally, it was an- nounced here.
