March 25, 1968

Mr. J. A. Byrne (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Transport):

The management of Canadian National Railways advises as

follows: 1 and 2. Pursuant to a judgment dated January 24, 1968 and Order No. R-1514 dated February 16, 1968, issued by the Canadian Transport Commission, implementation of a proposal providing for the reciprocal withdrawal of telegraph offices in areas where the volume of business does not justify the retention of offices by both Canadian National and Canadian Pacific will commence with an initial group of 16 locations as undernoted. When this occurs, the remaining office will be set up to represent CN-CP telecommunications.

CN withdraws from Kentville, N.S. Sherbrooke, Que. Chatham, Ont.

Port Colborne, Ont. Smith's Falls, Ont. Sudbury, Ont. Moose Jaw, Sask. Red Deer, Alta.

CP withdraws from St. John's, Nfld. North Sydney, N.S. Moncton, N.B. Drummondville, Que.

St. Hyacinthe, Que. St. Catharines, Ont. Prince Albert, Sask. New Westminster, B.C.

To ease the impact of the technological and operational changes arising from this plan, agreement was reached by the companies with representatives of the Commercial Telegraphers' Union. This agreement provides protective measures to assist telecommunications employees who may be adversely affected by changes under this plan.

3. Under the reciprocal withdrawal plan none of the communities involved will be without telegraph service.
