These would include Sulphur Springs, Emer- ald (Grave) Lake and land ad- jacent to the old highway just past the MacGillivray crossing along the present Highway 3. Council decided to support the City of Fernie in its support for the proposed Kootenay and Elk Railway.

Trail council raps UBCM PROTEIN SOURCE Two eggs provide about one- quarter of an adult's daily re- uirement for protein. SPARWOOD (HNS) Trail council is not taking kindly to he decision of the Union of British Columbia Mitncipalities rejecting its resolution against the Kootenay and Elk Railroad. The council maintains that IE ,he railway is not cf general provincial interest, neither are several other resolutions from other municipalities. Fernie council sent a resolu- ;ion supporting the K and E. 't also was rejected as "not of general interest." Fernie council nov; feels tnat f there is an effort at the fall convention to force the Trail resolution on to the floor, the supporting resolution also will lave fo be discussed. Following is the letter of Trail council to the UBCM: "Your letter of July 21 hns been referred to me for a reply expressing our dissatisfaction the decision of the UBCM executive in refusing to submit our resolution concerning the Kootenay and Elk Railway ap- plication io the UBCM conven- tion. "We believe the application j of the Kootenay and Elk Rail- way could seriously effect the economy of not only the Koote- nay Boundary area but also the municipalities of the area. "The resolution was endorsed at the Association of Kootenay and Boundary Municipalities convention in May, 1972, and we feel it highly irregular that the executive has rejected this j resolution in view of the AKBM's action in support of this resolution. "Your letter .stales that al- hough (he general economy of the Kootenay and Boundary area of the province may be affected, this was not a UBCM matter and as such should not be presented to the convention. "Tliis is totally unacceptable :o the Trail city council as a reason for disallowing this re- solution on the floor of the con- vention. :If this resolution is not a UBCM matter may we suggest that resolutions numbered, 16, 22, G4, 67, 116, and 117 are equally irrelevant to UBCM matters. "We trust that the UBCM executive will reconsider their decision and place this matter on the floor of the convention for discussion."
