     SCHEDULE 3

     CONDITIONS OF CARRIAGE
     (GENERAL HAULING)

Liability of carrier
1   The carrier of the goods described in the bill of lading is liable for
any loss of or damage to goods accepted by him or his agent except as
provided in these Conditions of Carriage.


Liability of originating and delivering carriers 
2   Where a shipment is accepted for carriage by more than one carrier, the
carrier issuing the bill of lading (hereinafter called the originating
carrier) and the carrier who assumes responsibility for delivery to the
consignee, (hereinafter called the delivering carrier), in addition to any
other liability provided for under these Conditions of Carriage, are liable
for any loss of or damage to the goods while they are in the custody of any
other carrier to whom the goods are or have been delivered and from which
liability the other carrier is not relieved.


Recovery from connecting carrier 
3(1)  The originating carrier or the delivering carrier, as the case may
be, is entitled to recover from any other carrier to whom the goods are or
have been delivered the amount of the loss or damage that the originating
carrier or delivering carrier, as the case may be, may be required to pay
under these Conditions of Carriage resulting from loss of or damage to the
goods while they were in the custody of that other carrier.

(2)  When shipments are interlined between carriers, settlement of
concealed damage claims shall be prorated on the basis of revenue received.


Remedy by Consignor or Consignee
4   Nothing in sections 2 and 3 of these Conditions of Carriage deprives a
consignor or consignee of any rights he may have against any carrier.


Exceptions from liability 
5   The carrier shall not be liable for loss, damage or delay to any of the
goods described in the bill of lading caused by

     (a)  an act of God,

     (b)  the Queen's or public enemies,

     (c)  riots,

     (d)  strikes,

     (e)  a defect or inherent vice in the goods,

     (f)  an act or default of the consignor, owner or consignee,

     (g)  authority of law,

     (h)  quarantine, or

     (i)  differences in weights of grain, seed or other commodities
caused by natural shrinkage.


Delay 
6   No carrier is bound to transport goods

     (a)  by any particular vehicle, or

     (b)  in time for any particular market or otherwise,

other than with due dispatch, unless specifically agreed to and endorsed on
the bill of lading and signed by the parties to the bill of lading.


Routing by carrier 
7   In case of physical necessity where the carrier forwards the goods by a
conveyance that is not a commercial vehicle, the liability of the carrier
is the same as though the entire carriage were by commercial vehicle.


Stoppage in transit 
8   Where goods are stopped and held in transit at the request of the party
entitled to so request, the goods are held at the risk of that party.


Valuation 
9   Subject to section 10 of these Conditions of Carriage, the amount of
any loss or damage for which the carrier is liable, whether or not the loss
or damage results from negligence,

     (a)  shall be computed on the basis of the value of the goods at the
place and time of shipment including the freight and other charges if paid,
or

     (b)  where a value lower than that referred to in clause (a) has
been represented in writing by the consignor or has been agreed upon, such
lower value shall be the maximum liability.


Maximum liability 
10   The amount of any loss or damage computed under section 9 of these
Conditions of Carriage shall not exceed $4.41 per kilogram ($2 per pound)
computed on the total weight of the shipment unless a higher value is
declared on the face of the bill of lading by the consignor.


Consignor's risk 
11(1)  Where it is agreed that the goods are carried at the risk of the
consignor of the goods, that agreement covers only those risks that are
necessarily incidental to transportation.

(2)  The agreement referred to in subsection (1) shall not relieve the
carrier from liability for any loss, damage or delay that may result from
any negligent act or omission of the carrier, his agents or employees and
the burden of proving absence from negligence shall be on the carrier.


Notice of claim 
12(1)  No carrier is liable for loss, damage or delay to any goods carried
under the bill of lading unless notice thereof setting out

     (a)  particulars of the origin, destination and date of shipment of
the goods, and

     (b)  the estimated amount claimed in respect of such loss, damage or
delay,

is given in writing to the originating carrier or the delivering carrier

     (c)  within 60 days after delivery of the goods, or

     (d)  in the case of failure to make delivery, within 9 months from
the date of shipment.

(2)  The final statement of the claim must be filed within 9 months from
the date of shipment together with a copy of the paid freight bill.


Articles of extra-ordinary value 
13(1)  No carrier is bound to carry any documents, specie or any articles
of extra-ordinary value unless the carrier specifically agrees to do so.

(2)  If

     (a)  goods referred to in subsection (1) are carried without the
carriage of those items being specifically agreed to, and

     (b)  the nature of the goods is not disclosed on the bill of lading,

the carrier shall not be liable for any loss or damage in excess of the
maximum liability stipulated in section 10 of these Conditions of Carriage.


Freight charges 
14(1)  If required by the carrier the freight and all other lawful charges
accruing on the goods shall be paid before delivery.

(2)  Notwithstanding subsection (1), if on inspection it is ascertained
that the goods shipped are not those described in the bill of lading the
freight charges must be paid upon the goods actually shipped, with any
additional charges lawfully payable thereon.

(3)  Should a consignor fail to indicate that a shipment is to move
prepaid, or fail to indicate how the shipment is to move, it will
automatically move on a collect basis.


Dangerous goods 
15   Every person, whether as principal or agent, shipping explosives or
dangerous goods without previous full disclosure to the carrier as required
by law, shall indemnify the carrier against all loss, damage or delay
caused thereby, and those goods may be warehoused at the consignor's risk
and expense.


Undelivered goods 
16(1)  Where, through no fault of the carrier, the goods cannot be
delivered, the carrier shall immediately give notice to the consignor and
consignee that delivery has not been made, and shall request disposal
instructions.

(2)  Pending receipt of disposal instructions,

     (a)  the goods may be stored in the warehouse of the carrier,
subject to a reasonable charge for storage, or

     (b)  where the carrier has notified the consignor of his intention,
the goods may be removed to, and stored in, a public or licensed warehouse,

               (i)  at the expense of the consignor, without liability
on the part of the carrier, and

               (ii) subject to a lien for all freight and other lawful
charges, including a reasonable charge for storage.


Return of goods
17   Where

     (a)  a notice has been given by the carrier pursuant to section
16(1) of these Conditions of Carriage, and

     (b)  no disposal instructions have been received within 10 days from
the date of the notice,

the carrier may return to the consignor, at the consignor's expense, all
undelivered shipments for which such notice has been given.


Alterations 
18   Subject to section 19 of these Conditions of Carriage,

     (a)  any limitation on the carrier's liability on the bill of
lading, and

     (b)  any alteration, or addition or erasure in the bill of lading,

shall be signed or initialled by the consignor or his agent and the
originating carrier or his agent and unless so acknowledged shall be
without effect.


Weights 
19(1)  It shall be the responsibility of the consignor to show correct
shipping weights of the shipment on the bill of lading. 

(2)  Where the actual weight of the shipment does not agree with the weight
shown on the bill of lading, the weight shown on the bill of lading is
subject to correction by the carrier.


C.O.D. shipments 
20(1)  A carrier shall not deliver a C.O.D. shipment unless payment is
received in full.

(2)  The charge for collecting and remitting the amount of C.O.D. bills for
C.O.D. shipments must be collected from the consignee unless the consignor
has otherwise so indicated and instructed on the bill of lading.

(3)  A carrier shall remit all C.O.D. money to the consignor or person
designated by him within 15 days after collection.

(4)  A carrier shall keep all C.O.D. money in a separate trust fund or
account apart from the other revenues and funds of his business.

(5)  A carrier shall include as a separate item in his schedule of rates
the charges for collecting the remitting money paid by consignees.

     CONDITIONS OF CARRIAGE
     (LIVESTOCK HAULING)

Liability 
1   A carrier of livestock is liable for any loss or damage to the
livestock caused by him except as provided in these Conditions of Carriage.


Exceptions from liability
2   A carrier is not liable for any loss, damage, injury or delay caused by

     (a)  an act of God,

     (b)  the Queen's or public enemies,

     (c)  riots,

     (d)  strikes,

     (e)  defect or inherent vice in the goods,


     (f)  an act or default of the shipper or owner,

     (g)  the authority of law, or

     (h)  quarantine.

Delay
3   A carrier is not bound to transport livestock

     (a)  by any particular commercial vehicle, or

     (b)  in time for any particular market or otherwise,

other than with due dispatch, unless specifically agreed to and endorsed on
the livestock manifest and signed by the parties.


Routing by carrier
4   A carrier may transport the livestock by a conveyance other than a
commercial vehicle but in such a case the liability of the carrier is the
same as though the entire carriage were by commercial vehicle.


Consignor's risk
5(1)  If the parties agree that the livestock is to be carried at the risk
of the consignor or owner of the livestock, the agreement covers only those
risks that are necessarily incidental to transportation.

(2)  The agreement referred to in subsection (1) does not relieve the
carrier from liability for any loss, damage, injury or delay that results
from negligence or omission of the carrier, its agents or employees, and
the burden of proving the absence of negligence or omission is on the
carrier.


Maximum liability
6   The maximum amount of loss, damage, injury or delay for which the
carrier is liable, whether or not the loss, damage, injury or delay results
from negligence or omission, shall be the lesser of

     (a)  the value of the livestock at the place and time of shipment,
including the freight and other charges if paid, and

     (b)  the value represented in writing by the consignor or agreed on
by the parties at the time of shipment.


Nature of claim
7(1)  A carrier is not liable for loss, damage, injury or delay of any
livestock carried under a livestock manifest, hog manifest or producer's
receipt unless notice of the loss, damage, injury or delay is given in

not relieved.


Recovery from connecting carrier 
3   The originating contracting carrier or the delivering carrier, as the
case may be, is entitled to recover from any other carrier to whom the
goods are or have been delivered the amount of loss or damage that the
originating contracting carrier or delivering carrier, as the case may be,

any loss of or damage to the goods while they were in the custody of that
other carrier.


Remedy by consignor or consignee 
4   Nothing in section 2 or 3 of these Conditions of Carriage deprives a
consignor or consignee of any rights he may have against any carrier.


Exceptions from liability 
5   The carrier shall not be liable for the following:

     (a)  loss, damage or delay to any of the goods described in the bill
of lading caused by

               (i)  an act of God,

          and the burden of proving absence of such negligence shall be
on the carrier;

     (c)  damage to or loss of a complete set or unit when only part of
the set is damaged or lost, in which event the carrier shall only be liable

     (d)  damage to the goods at place or places of pick-up at which the
consignor or his agent was not in attendance;

     (e)  damage to the goods at place or places of delivery at which the

carrier shall provide the consignor with a date or time period within which
delivery is to be made.

the face of the bill of lading shall render him liable for reasonable food
and lodging expenses incurred by the consignee.

time specified on the bill of lading shall render him liable for reasonable
storage in transit, handling and redelivery charges incurred by the
carrier.


Routing by the carrier 
7   In case of physical necessity where the carrier forwards the goods by a
conveyance that is not a commercial vehicle, the liability of the carrier
is the same as though the entire carriage were by commercial vehicle.


Stoppage in transit 
8   Where goods are stopped or held in transit at the request of a party
entitled to so request, the goods are held at the risk of that party.


Valuation 
9   Subject to section 10 of these Conditions of Carriage, the amount of
any loss or damage for which the carrier shall be liable, whether or not

or agents, shall be computed on the basis of the value of the lost or
damaged article at the time and place of shipment.


Maximum liability 
10(1)  The amount of any loss or damage computed under section 9 of these
Conditions of Carriage shall not exceed the greater of

     (a)  the value declared by the shipper, and

shipment.

(2)  Notwithstanding subsection (1), where the consignor releases the
shipment to a value of $1.32 per kilogram per article or less in writing,
the amount of any loss or damage computed under section 9 of these
Conditions of Carriage shall not exceed that lower amount.

(3)  Where section 10(1) applies, additional charges to cover the
additional coverage over $1.32 per kilogram per article shall be paid by

11(1)  Where it is agreed that the goods are carried at the risk of the
consignor of the goods, that agreement covers only those risks as are
necessarily incidental to transportation.

(2)  The agreement referred to in subsection (1) shall not relieve the
carrier from liability for any loss, damage or delay that may result from
any negligent act or omission of the carrier, his agents or employees and
the burden of proving absence of negligence shall be on the carrier.


Notice of claim
12(1)  No carrier is liable for loss, damage or delay to any goods carried
under the bill of lading unless notice thereof setting out

     (a)  particulars of the origin, destination and date of shipment of
the goods, and

delay,

bill of lading,

the carrier shall not be liable for any loss or damage.


Freight charges 
14(1)  If required by the carrier freight and all other lawful charges
accruing on the goods shall be paid before delivery.

(2)  Notwithstanding subsection (1), where the actual charges exceed by
more than 10% the total estimated charges, the consignee shall be allowed
15 days after the day on which the goods are delivered, excluding Saturday
and holidays, to pay the amount by which the total actual charges exceed
110% of the total estimated charges.

(3)  Where

     (a)  the actual charges exceed by more than 10% the total estimated
charges, and

     (b)  the consignee pays that extra 10%,

the carrier shall unload the shipment in accordance with the agreement for
the transportation of the goods notwithstanding that the total charges that
are in excess of 110% of the total estimate charges remain owing.

(4)  The 15-day extension provided in subsection (2) does not apply where
the carrier notifies the consignor of the total actual charges immediately
after loading, or receives a waiver of the extension provision signed by
the consignor.


Dangerous goods 
15   Every person, whether as principal or agent, shipping explosives or
dangerous goods without previous full disclosure to the carrier as required

caused thereby, and those goods may be warehoused at the consignor's risk
and expense.


Undelivered goods 
16(1)  Where, through no fault of the carrier, the goods cannot be
delivered, the carrier shall immediately give notice to the consignor and
the consignee that delivery has not been made, and shall request disposal
instructions. 

(2)  Pending receipt of disposal instructions

     (a)  the goods may be stored in the warehouse of the carrier,
subject to a reasonable charge for storage, or

     (b)  where the carrier has notified the consignor of his intention,
the goods may be removed to, and stored in, a public or licensed warehouse,

               (i)  at the expense of the consignor, without liability
on the part of the carrier, and

               (ii) subject to a lien for all freight and other lawful
charges, including a reasonable charge for storage.


Alterations 
17   Subject to section 18 of these Conditions of Carriage,

     (a)  any additional limitation on the carrier's liability on the
bill of lading, and

     (b)  any alteration, or addition or erasure on the bill of lading,

shall be signed or initialled by the consignor or his agent and the

               (i)  stating the reason;

               (ii) stating that it is an offence for the person to
lease, rent or operate commercial vehicles that are required to operate

     (b)  the greater the danger or possibility that an accident could
have occurred, or the greater the degree of risk to people or property that
did occur as a result of the contravention, or the fact that an accident
did occur, the higher the penalty should be;

administrative penalty the higher the penalty should be;

     (d)  the greater the degree of wilfulness or neglect in the
contravention, the higher the penalty should be.


Limitation period
39   An administrative penalty may be imposed only within 6 months of the
date the Registrar first becomes aware of the contravention of the
regulatory legislation in respect of which the administrative penalty is to
be imposed.

Definitions
1   In this Regulation,

     (a)  "Act" means the Traffic Safety Act;

     (b)  "demerit offence" means an offence specified in Schedule 1 or
2;

     (c)  "driving record" means the driving record of a person
maintained by the Registrar under the Traffic Safety Act.


     Part 1
     Demerit Point Program

     Division 1
     Assessment and Recording of Demerit Points

Demerit point program established
2   The demerit point program for drivers is established by this
Regulation.


Registrar's obligations
3   The Registrar must, in accordance with this Regulation, record on or
remove from a driving record any demerit points that are assessed against a
driver or are to be removed from a driving record.


Recording demerit points for demerit offences
4(1)  The demerit points specified opposite an offence described in
Schedules 1 and 2 must be assessed against a driver and recorded by the
Registrar in the driver's driving record in the following circumstances:

     (a)  if the person is convicted of a demerit offence, unless the
person's operator's licence is suspended by the court for that conviction
under section 86(1) of the Act;

     (b)  if under section 38(2) of the Act the Alberta Transportation
Safety Board terminates the suspension of an operator's licence that the
court imposed under section 86(1) of the Act;

     (c)  if the person makes a voluntary payment under the regulations
under the Provincial Offences Procedures Act in respect of a demerit
offence.

(2)  If a person is convicted of an offence under

     (a)  an enactment of another province or the Parliament of Canada,
or

     (b)  an enactment of the United States of America or any state in
the United States of America,

that is, in the opinion of the Registrar, equivalent to a conviction of a
demerit offence, the conviction in that other jurisdiction may be treated
under this Regulation as if the conviction were a conviction for the
equivalent demerit offence.

(3)  The Clerk of the Court must

     (a)  as soon as practicable after a person is convicted of a demerit
offence, notify the Registrar of the name of the driver and the demerit
offence for which the driver is convicted;

     (b)  as soon as practicable after the Clerk receives a voluntary
payment under the regulations under the Provincial Offences Procedure Act
in respect of a demerit offence, notify the Registrar of the name of the
driver and the demerit offence in respect of which the payment was made.


Demerit points and multiple convictions
5(1)  If a person satisfies the Registrar that demerit points have been
assessed and recorded on the person's driving record for multiple
convictions arising out of the same circumstances, the Registrar must
adjust the demerit points to assess and record demerit points for one
conviction of a demerit offence only, being the conviction for the demerit
offence carrying the greatest number of demerit points.

(2)  If the same number of demerit points are to be assessed for 2 or more
convictions for demerit offences arising out of the same circumstances, the
Registrar must decide on one conviction in respect of which to record the
demerit points.


Effect of an appeal
6(1)  If a person satisfies the Registrar that the person has appealed a
conviction of a demerit offence, the Registrar must

     (a)  record the appeal on the driving record of the person
concerned,

     (b)  delete the demerit points assessed and recorded on the person's
driving record due to the conviction of the demerit offence under appeal,
and

     (c)  pending the outcome of the appeal, terminate or not impose any
suspension of an operator's licence under this Regulation that resulted
from the conviction of the demerit offence under appeal.

(2)  If there are multiple convictions of a person for demerit offences
arising out of the same circumstances and not all demerit offence
convictions are appealed, the Registrar must assess and record on the
driving record of the appellant the demerit points for the conviction of
the demerit offence that then carries the highest number of demerit points
that is not under appeal.


Effect of appeal court's decision
7(1)  As soon as practicable after the court makes a decision about an
appeal from a demerit offence conviction, the Clerk of the Court must
notify the Registrar of the name of the driver, the outcome of the decision
and the date of the decision.

(2)  If an appeal against a conviction of a demerit offence for which
demerit points were originally assessed is unsuccessful, the Registrar must
record the demerit points originally assessed and recorded on the driving
record of the person concerned and delete any demerit points recorded under
section 6(2).


Date demerit points are imposed
8   Demerit points are to be considered to have been imposed, as the case
requires,

     (a)  on the date of conviction of a demerit offence;

     (b)  on the date voluntary payment in respect of a demerit offence
is received by the Clerk of the Court under the regulations under the
Provincial Offences Procedure Act.


     Division 2
     Notice of Demerit Points, Adjustment of
     Points, and Licence Suspensions

Notice of accumulated demerit points
9(1)  If at any one time a total of 8 or more but less than 15 demerit
points accumulate on the driving record of a person, the Registrar must
give that person written notice of the number of demerit points accumulated
on the person's driving record.

(2)  Failure to give the notice does not affect the operation of this
Regulation or the duty of the Registrar to suspend an operator's licence
under this Regulation if the situation requires.


15 demerit points trigger licence suspension
10(1)  If at any one time a total of 15 or more demerit points accumulate
on the driving record of a person within any period of 2 years, the
Registrar must suspend that person's operator's licence for one month.

(2)  If at any one time a total of 15 or more demerit points accumulate on
the driving record of a person within one year from the date the person's
operator's licence is suspended under subsection (1), the Registrar must
suspend that person's operator's licence for 3 months.

(3)  The Registrar must suspend a person's operator's licence for 6 months
if, within a period of 2 years

     (a)  the person's operator's licence is suspended twice under this
Regulation, and

     (b)  after the second licence suspension, the person has, at any one
time, a total of 15 or more demerit points.

(4)  An operator's licence must be suspended despite the fact that between
the date the person accumulated 15 or more demerit points and the date the

Deletion of demerit points
14(1)  The Registrar must delete from a driving record demerit points
recorded as a result of a conviction for a demerit offence

     (a)  2 years after the date on which the demerit points are

date that results from calculating  2 years after the date on which the
demerit points are considered to be imposed under section 8 and adding the
period of time during which the demerit points were deleted by the
Registrar under section 6(1)(b).

(2)  Two years after demerit points are recorded on a driving record as a

this Regulation, and

     (b)  after the second licence suspension, the novice driver has at
any one time, a total of 8 or more demerit points.
