Heritage Canada will live ini- tially off the interest earned on the trust fund. R. A. J. Phillips, fcrmer dep- uty head of Information Can- ada, now is execufive director of the new body. He said in an interview that Heritage Canada will wcrk primarily as an infor- mation agency, encouraging conservation of historic and aesthetically important build- ings and landscapes. With its limited funds, it will not be able to buy msny proper- ties.

In the afternoon debate, he gave grudging praise to the government's foreign in- vestment review bill, calling it a great improvement over a similar bill last year but vowing to press for amendments in committee to strengthen it. Then he won approval from Commons Speaker Lucien La- moureux to suspend discussion of that bill and hold a special evening debate on recent rate increases granted to Bell Can- ada by the Canadian transport commission. "It is fully time to call a halt to 1he monopolistic gouging by Bell Canada of the people of this he declared in a hard-hitting speech. Mr. Lewis noted that Bell has had four increases in 3% years and has yet another application before the transport commis- sion asking for rate increases to take effect next year. Bell Canada serves Ontario, Quebec, Labrador and part of the Northwest Territories. He urged the government to use its power to suspend the commission decision and review the case to see whether the in- creases should be disallowed. Conservative spokesmen at- tacked the increases as ex- cessive, while Mark MacGuigan said the commissions procedure for hearing the Bell application did not convince the public their in- terests were being protected. The foreign investment re- view bill won agreement from all parties to send it to com- mittee for study, although the Commons debate did not end Monday. All opposition parties Nixon may rest on Hanoi warning SAN CLEMENTS, Cab1. (Reu- ter) President Nixon, wind- ing up two days of talks with President Van Thieu, appeared today to be backing away from a public military guarantee for South Vietnam diesmte his readiness to act against any new invasion by the North. His remarks before the open- ing of the summit Monday and a report by. a VThite House spokesman later indicated he might decide to give a private commifment to President Thieu and publicly rest on his recent of reprisals if Hanoi blatantly violates the ceasefire- Although only sparse details of the talks were released, there were signs that Nixon felt his warnings would be an ade- quate deterrent and that anv open formal commitment to Saigon mi.eht hinder the search for reconciliation and peaceful cc-cperation with North Viet- nsm. ered the outlooks for peace and the size of post-war U.S. eco- nomic and military aid for South Vietnam- criticized the bill as Inadequate. Mr. Lewis said Canada does not need foreign investment. Foreign-owned firms were able to expand by reinvesting profits made in Canada. "We have not needed foreign capital in this country for years. We have been selling Canada out with our own money. We have permitted for- eigners to buy us out with our own dollars.' SEES IMPROVEMENT He said the bill is a great Im- provement over last year's, which provided for an agency to screen foreign takeovers of companies with more than assets or million an- nual sales. The new bill would have an agency screen such takeovers, plus any new business estab- lished in Canada by a foreigner and any expansion into unre- lated fields by foreign-con- trolled companies already oper- ating in Canada. Mr. Lewis said, however, his party would press in committee to have the proposed agency screen imports of parts and components, exports of raw ma- terials and any export agree- ments between multinational corporations and their Canadian subsidiaries. Eventually, he added, steps will have to be taken to buy back Canada.
