Consumers department under study EDMONTON (CP) A pro- vincial consumers department could be established in Alberta as consumer protection services expand, Labor Minister Bert Hohol says. Dr. Hohol said in an Inter- view the province is studying legislation that set up the con- sumer affairs department and "wants to determine wheth- er in fact an Alberta consum- ers department is a reasonable tory freight rates within a year predicts Premier Peter Lcug heed. In previous discussions ovei the rates and service of thi Canadian Pacific Railway thi provinces "just got ham he said in an inter view. "They took their submission down to Ottawa and they simp ly did not have enough specific to support their case." Research now is being com- pleted and the provinces will be talking to Ottawa about "spe- cific commodities and specific freight rates." "We can wave the flag of na- tional transportation only so long and then we have to have some bullets. "Now that we have them, I would say we are only a year away from some real battles on specifics." As an example of the freight rate discrimination, he said it costs more to ship rapeseed oil to Toronto than it does to ship rapeseed, have it processed into oil and shipped back to the west. .AS, OIL HIGHER Under variable costs, the con- clusion is that the U.S. drive- pays an average of about 4.25 cents per mile to operate his mpala compared to expenses of 4.75 cents for the Canadian driver. The biggest difference in this category is in the cost of ;as and .34 cents ligher in Canada. Under fixed costs, Hunzhci- mer reported that the U.S. standard-sized cost annually to operate compared t" for the Ca- nadian compaci car. A greater difference woulc be expected because of the dil ference in she of the two cars. Fire and theft and property damage and liability insurance cost the U.S. driver considera bly more than his Canadian counterpart, But the Canadian driver pays more for licence and registration and deprecla tion. Runzheimer selected Insur ance and depreciation as fixe partment.
