Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Improved ice control Shipping season lengthened TORONTO (CP) Since year-round port, adding about 1960, thanks to improved ice two millions tons of cargo an- control and weather fore- casting, the shipping season on tlie St. Lawrence Seaway has been lengthened by about 30 days. But officials on both sides of tlie bonier still arc looking for ways to extend tlie season just a liltle longer. They are looking at ice con- trol, hydro requirements and economic feasibility in attempts to give shipping in the milo waterway extra (iays of navigation. The unpredictable Canadian winter is a major roadblock. A late spring or an early freeze can mean delayed schedules and financial losses to ships trapped in the system Iho winter. In 15VO, tlie seaway was open 200 days compared to 234 days in I960. The difficult problem of ice control has been defeated in at least one section of the seaway. A fleet of 2C icebreakers in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and up the river, combined with float- ing ice booms and artificial ice islands, have made Montreal a nually. The channels that bypass the St. Lawrence rapids and lift ships 226 feet from Montreal to Lake Ontario present advocates of a longer stopping season with another difficult challenge. This section is the first part of the system to freeze over and become impassable. STUDY MANY WAYS Methods being studied by tho Canadian and U.S. teams in- clude water bubbling devices to ensure open waters around docks, artificial ice islands to break up ice and the use of waste heat from thermal gener- ating stations along tlie shore raise water temperatures. A. M. Luce, chairman of the anadian committee, sees some roblems. "If used heat from gener- tors this would change the wa- lempreature which coult ffect the fish life. And if you reak the ice up indiscrimin- tely, you'll cause jamming nd flooding all the way back o Toronto." Mr. Luce also says that ydro officials and shippers light disagree on some of the let hods because Onlario Hydro and tlie Power Authority of ew York set up programs to enerale power during the win- :r months when the seaway not in use. "Power needs an ice cover as arly as possible In the fall and eep it as late as possible in 10 spring. Of course, this isn'l vhat the ships want. "We're not close to a 12 month season but an extendec season is feasible. Just how ong an extension depends on he committee findings. After hat, it's a government deei lion."

IN YOUR LFTHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE OTTAWA (CP) Jamaican women are being used as near- indentured servants, a provin- cial government report in- dicated Tuesday. The women, the report says, are lured to Canada by glowing descriptions produced by Jamaican agencies and find themselves employed as domes- tics working long hours tor pay far lower than they were told to expect. The situation was revealed by two Ottawa university students working for the ministry of community and social services this summer. They found that some of the women were told that they owed five-years work to their employers, who had paid part of their transportation costs from the West Indies. The students discovered the situation when they sent out let- ters offering assistance to new arrivals in Canada, Among the replies they re- ceived were complaints from three women who told of poor from to a long hours. The letters told of loneliness and alleged inhumane treat- ment. Tho report censures the im- migration department and the Jamaican employment agencies for allowing the situation to continue.
