PtoM 127-3181 No backing for islands to join Canada UNITED NATIONS (CP) Efforts by indents of the Turks and Caicos Islands to get Canada to abaorb their Caribbean homeland are about to come to the official attention of a UN committee charged with fostering independence for colonial territories. The chances of the committee taking action, or making recommendations, are considered practically nil. The secretariat has prepared'a working paper on the Turks and Caicos Islands' constitutional picture for a special 24-man UN committee which deals with the implementation of the granting of independence to colonial countries Made up largely of delegates from former colonial territories, the committee is known in UN circles to fancy itself as the champion of oppressed pepples and to regard as backward and oppressed anyone who has not achieved independence. The1 working paper outlines the steps taken early this year by residents of the islands, a British colony with a population of about to interest Canada in absorbing their homeland, either as an llth province or as a county of Nova Scotia, the province closest geographically to the islands. It concludes with a notation that neither Sir Alec Douglas- Home, the then British foreign secretary, nor Mitchell Sharp, Canadian external affairs appeared to "any wish to initiate negotiation! about a change of status for the colony." The secretariat noted that the move to unite the island territory with Canada originated in a private bill introduced in the Canadian Parliament by Max Saltsman (NDP- Besides calling for union, it proposed establishment of a com- mittee of Canadian government officials to meet with representatives of the islands' state council. Three members of the islands' state council visited Canada late in January and, on returning home, sent to London a petition requesting permission to seek art association with Canada. The council members said such an association would place the islands in direct touch with Canadian resources in the ffelds of commerce, industry and tourism. The union movement gener- ally is regarded in UN circles as being one of private, rather than governmental initiative. This is based on the lukewarm reception given the idea by the Canadian and British govern- ments and the fact the only legislation placed before the Canadian Parliament came from a private member. There have been suggestions that if Canada were to absorb the islands, the move might be regarded as a new form of imperialism. Canada-France ties PARIS (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau insisted Friday that Canada's relations with France in good shape and that he did not come to Europe "to ride an elephant" Arriving here to attend Saturday's memorial service for the late President Former Nixon aide guilty of lying WASHINGTON (AP) Dwight Chapin, once President Nixon's appointments secretary, was convicted Friday on two counts of lying to a grand jury investigating political sabotage in the 1972 presidential election campaign Sentencing of the 33-year- old Chapin, now an airline vice-president on leave, was set by U.S District Judge Gerhard Gessell for May 15. Chapin will remain free without bond. Chapin is the eighth former White House aide convicted either by guilty plea or trial. A jury of seven men and five women found Chapin not guilty of one count A fourth count was dismissed by Gesell during the five-day trial Each count carries a max- imum penalty of five years rh prison and a fine. Chapin was invited by the judge to submit "all the information about yourself" before sentencing. The jury was asked by the judge how it voted on the first count in which Chapin was charged with making two false statements to the grand jury last April 11 SPLIT ON ONE COUNT Foreman Charles Wesley, a retired postal worker, said the jury convicted Chapin of lying he said he never dis- cussed distribution of campaign literature with Donald Segretti, an acknowledged political sabo- teur hired by Chapin. But the jury found that Chapin had not lied on the sec- ond part of the count where he was charged with falsely denying that he knew Segretti had distributed statements. Despite the split on the question Chapin stands Notley critical of action EDMONTON (CP) The provincial government's recent decision to scrap an existing tax collection agreement with Ottawa and create its own system for collecting corporation taxes could work to the advantage of multinational corporations. Grant Notley, provincial NDP leader, said Friday. "It is obvious that the Lougheed government is committed to rapid expansion geared unfortunately to the requirements of the American market." said Mr. Notley in a prepared relase. "On the other hand, Ottawa's responsibility is to ensure stability of the dollar and to screen foreign ownership." In addition, if the federal government's power to plan fiscal policies is eroded too drastically, "the general equality of services to Canadians wherever they live in Canada would be put in jeopardy." "If provincial tax laws are used to counter any federal fiscal measure, the nation could be faced with fiscal chaos and corporations could play one province off against another to get the maximum concessions.'' convicted on that count. The jury also determined that Chapin lied when he said that he had never given Segretti "any directions or instructions with respect to any single or particular candidate." It found him not guilty of a charge that he lied when he told Segretti to talk to the FBI at the time when it appeared Segretti would be questioned by FBI agents. Chapin and another former White House aide, Gordon Strachan, had recruited Segretti for the job of political prankster when Segretti was about to get out of the U S Army in 1971. Segretti, who had pleaded guilty to three counts of violating federal campaign laws, was released from prison last week after serving only 4Vz months of a six-month sentence imposed by Gesell Georges Pompidou, Trudeau1 told reporters if there is any ice to melt in Franco- Canadian relations, "which I don't think there !s, I didn't come here to melt it He described his first- official visit to Paris as "purely ceremonial" and said any further trips by him to Western Europe will depend on whether there are solid indications of substantial achievements don't want to come to Eu- rope as a he said, placing emphasis on efforts to achieve a declaration of prin- ciples between Canada and the European Common Market. Trudeau saluted French government policy in first suggesting a Common Market-Canadian declaration, describing this move as "very pleasing." He said French businessmen are currently taking a close interest in Canada as an investment out- let, especially m mining, oil and large-scale farming. He also mentioned British support for a special Common Market declaration with Canada and said "these are all positive steps." He dined Friday with teach- ers, professors and other friends he made during his student days and will attend the Pompidou memorial service today, accompanied by Bqurassa. He also will probably meet with Japanese Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka on the possi- bility of Tanaka visiting Ottawa later. Weekend engagements by Trudeau include a private dinner tonight and a visit to the Canadian cultural centre Sun- day before returning home Monday OLD BONKS FOUND The oldest scraps of human hones vcl found in Arctic Can- .id.i date to dbout 500 BC.
