The situation in Alberta .took a definite turn after Henry Ruste, Alberta's minister of agriculture, met last week with Cyril Shelford, B.C.'s agricul- tural minister and failed to reach an agreement to drop poultry trade restrictions tween the provinces. be- Wilderness Meeting Wednesday Emmanuel Cohen, president of the Waterton Park chamber of commerce will be featured speaker at the regular meeting of the Alberta Wilderness As- sociation, Lethbridge branch, Wednesday. The meeting starts at 3 p.m., in the Gas Company Auditor- ium, 410 Stafford Drive, and new members and visitors are welcome to attend. Mr. Cohen will speak on the logging 'and other operations in the Akamina-Kishenina area, and dynamiting of fish in the Kishenina Creek. The AWA is concerned about non-wilderness uses of the area, and has protested plans sup- ported by the Waterton Park chamber that would see con- struction of an Akamina-Kish- enina highway through the park and into British Columbia. Alberta has stepped up re- strictions on incoming produce, and poultry trade across Can- ada has come to a standstill. No further dealings are likely to take place until a mutual agreement is made to drop trade restrictions, or until federal marketing scheme can be implemented. Lethbridge's Lilydale Poul- try Sales Ltd., which processes about 60 per cent of the prov- inces fryers has still not been hurt too badly according to manager Ralph Effler. "Expansion plans scheduled for the Lethbridge plant may have to be shelved, and the sit- uation he said. "We are still shipping to B.C.'s east Kootenay region, but all markets farther into the province have been cut off completely." Alberta's poultry situation isn't too drastically altered yet, says Mr. Effler, as markets be- came available to replace lost markets when Alberta cut off outside trade. "Alberta growers will have to get used to the idea of only producing for immediate mar- Production is down somewhat though and is estimated to drop further. Producers two months ago were marketing 106 per cent of a bird quota on a 10- week broiler cycle. Mr. Effler says producers are now mar- keting 100 per cent of the quota and should be down to about 85 per cent by Nov. I. "The 85 per cent figure will likely be with us well into next year, as the surplus slowly al- leviates. "Prices should remain pretty well the says Sir. Effler, "but producers will have to raise fewer chickens." Cablevision Offers Groups Its Facilities Cablevision Lethbridge Ltd. has opened up its local orig- ination facilities for use by ser- vice clubs, sports groups, the- atre, school and church organ- izatic-ns. Local origination over cable began last December on Chan- nel 3 (later moved to Channel 2) with items on sports, public af- fairs and special features.

Programs which would be ac- ceptable to Cablevision L.eth- bridge would include annual meetings, non professional en- tertainment, speeches and sports events. Interested persons should con- tact the Cablevision office at ita new location on 3rd Ave. S. HEAVY WINNER A watermelon weighing Just over 118 pounds woo a first prize at the 14th annual North Carolina Watermelon Festival to which Canadian "flag" do the railways owe their first allegiance? The notion that business' firsf and only obliga- tion is to make a buck has happily disappeared with the horse and buggy. Or has it? To listen to the Railways, you'd think they were still living in the 19th wheeler- dealers trampled over peopled rights in order to make profits. Most industries are required to shoulder social responsibilities. Food processors must prefect public health. Auto manufacturers are required io maintain safety standards. "loss" which they incur on their passenger routes. And railways DO have a respon- sibility to the Canadian less than any other industry, and a lot more than others, because of two simple facts: of them, in return for vast grants of free land, pledged itself to maintain passenger service in perpetuity; other because it's owned by the Canadian people. Abandonment of passenger services will put an unbearable strain on our already overcrowded roads and highways. It will further pollute the air, and increase the automobile accident rate. It will cut many communities off from vital trans- portation links, and in some cases spell the death warrant for towns and villages. And consider the Government's short-sighted transportation policy: Tax money is used very liberally to support all other forms of transportation. Airlines get airports. Shipping companies get port facilities. Truckers get highways. Reduced passenger service clogs highways, increases accident rats And industry in general is finally being made to stop polluting our air and water. Only the railways seem on the verge of getting away with avoiding their public responsibilities. "We must abandon our passenger they cry. "We're losing And the Government soberly nods its head in agreement, never stopping to ask of the railways two simple questions: 1-Are you losing money on ALL your operations? 2-Don't you think you have a'responsibility to provide passenger services to Canadians? tf the Government bothered to ask these ques- tions, here are the answers they'd gel: First-ihe railways are earning enormous reve- nues on all their other mineral rights, telecommunications, freight, and which more than make up the relatively minor Government supports trucking, why not railways It jusf doesn't make sense to continue to build more and more highways which move very few people by comparison with what high speed rail- ways can do more efficiently. If ihe Government allows passenger abandonment, in the end it will cost the taxpayer much more. Because of increased road congestion, increased pollution, and more accidents. Not to mention the grossly inefficient use of public funds. So when are the railways and the government going to acknowledge the facts of life? Maybe never, unless they're made to. Unless the public keeps up the pressure. Kailways have definite obligations to public! Unless you do something to prevent wriiing to your Mp and MLA, by contacting your municipal authorities, by appearing at Transporta- tion Commission hearings, and by making yourself heard in every way possible. Before it's too late. It's up to you! for 3 free booklet containing same very Mealing facts about the sad state of Canada's mite to: S.T.O.P., P.O.
