Orest and Pat Sopatyk have complained to the board that their three daughters, including one who has cerebral palsy, spend 80 more minutes and ride 28 additional kilometres each day than is necessary. The schedule calls for the Sopatyk children to board the bus at 7:50 a.m. "We have other children who get on the.

bus at 7:25 a.m.,' said Penner. The division has refused to change the route, stating that it conforms to policy. The Sopatyk children attend school in Aberdeen but the bus first drives beyond Vonda seven kilometres in the opposite direction before heading back along Highway 27 and past the turn-off to the Sopatyk farm. The division laid out this circuitous route because the bus driver lives slightly south of the Sopatyks and it conforms to policy that he pick up the children on his way to Highway 27. If he were to pick them up on the way back he would have to veer off the highway.

Mrs. Sopatyk said she has been told routes are often winding because bus drivers are guaranteed a certain number of kilometres a week. But Milton Hertz, president of Hertz Northern Bus Ltd. which supplies 50 buses to the division, said she was mistaken. His said his bus drivers are paid for a minimum of 96.5 kilometres a day, regardless of whether they drive that far.

In a report submitted to the education department, Wakeling called for John Sawkey to be reinstated.

The trustees demoted Sawkey last December after he wrote a letter to them allegedly criticizing their employment practices. The trustees resigned Dec. 14 following controversy concerning their decision to demote Sawkey. Tony Selinger, a former Regina separate school board administrator, was appointed official trustee for the school division.

But the Sopatyks maintain the ride also is tiring for their other two daughters, aged six and 11. Hertz said there would be no problem if the Sopatyks' bus driver lived in Vonda. The route would then start in that community and the Sopatyk children would not have to double back.

"All routes are established in order to minimize the number of miles that have to be driven," said Penner. He confirmed that, if there is medical evidence of a need, the division is willing to supply special transportation for the 12-year-old who has cerebral palsy.

Margaret Krause, North Bat tleford and Olga Pastor, San official, however, maintains that even such a large-scale diversion would not have significant downstream impact. The recommendations to council are based on a report from city solicitor Marty Irwin, who says there are few legal steps the city can take to prevent the province from authorizing river diversions. the city press the province to ensure an environmental impact study is completed prior to any river diversion project. The issue arose several months ago when some council members expressed concern that water diverted from the river to a proposed heavy oil upgrading plant near Moose Jaw might have implications for Saskatoon. Some members are worried that any diversion may be expanded beyond the plant's fresh-water needs and end up supplying water to much of southern Saskatchewan.

They fear this could have threatening implications for upstream water quality and supplies, including in Saskatoon's. At least one provincial hydrology Guaranteed rights for Saskatoon to a fixed quantity of water from the South Saskatchewan River may be sought by the city from the provincial government. In a report to be received at city council's meeting Tuesday, the city's board of administration recommends seeking such a guarantee. The report also recommends Francisco.
