Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Government plans new legislation on housing Friday, April H, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 TORONTO (CP) Federal I Urban Affairs Minister Ron liasford said here he will introduce legislation "within a few weeks" to encourage the flow of private funds Into hous- ing. Mr. Dasford told a meeting ol the Toronto Home Builders As- sociation the legislation has three main thrusts. It will es- tablish a ccnfrnl mortgage bank which will Irade in residential mortgages, permit the creation ot real estate investment trusts in Canada and create a new mortgage vari- able-term mortgage loan. "To meet he necessary tar- gets for housing in Canada over the next decade will call for an investment of more than bil- he said, "We are rapidly moving to a point where an annual invest- ment in Hie order ol 55 billion will be required to satisfy the financial needs of residential construction programs." As an of Ihe kind ol money he hoped to attract through (lie new financing vehi- cles, Mr. Basford poinled lo the billion in assets held by life insurance companies, charterec banks, trust and loan compa- nies, and trusteed pension plans. "At the end of 1970, only V per cent ol the total assets o these Institutions were allocatoc to mortgages in various types o real estate. Instead, in the las 15 years, that ratio has only been exceeded on two occasions "Trusteed pension plans considerably below this ratio with only nine per cent of thci assets committed to real cstati mortgages." The urban affairs ministe said a small improvement i participation In the residentia mortgage market by such com panics could produce major in creases in available mortgag funds. He said the greatest potentia for increased investment mortgages is In the trustee pension funds. "More than S500 million woul be made available for residen lial mortgages from a furthe (ive per cent of assets placed i this kind of investment." The proposed mortgage ban will increase liquidity of res' dential mortgages, he said. Heat off Nixon visit to Canada FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE! CttMICAL PRESCRIPTION CO Tho real estate Investment lists arc aimed at attracting dividual investors, he said, ucli like a mutual fund, they ould issue shares lo the public nd use Ihe proceeds lo invest i mortgages and real estate. Mr. liasford said the varia- te-term mortgages could bo written on the basis ot flexible or variable interest rates and terms. They could also be writ- ten on the basis of the current practice of making housing loans cither five-year fixed in- terest term with a long amorti- zation period, or fixed long-term mortgages. WASHINGTON (CP) Presl- ent N'ixon visits Canada at a me when whatever heat was encrated here over the state of anada-U.S. relations has argely evaporated. The issues of Irade, cconom- cs and pervasive American wnorship in Canada that slimu- aled headlines in Canada and Imost daily questions in the louse of Commons pass vir- ually unnoticed these days in he U.S. 'i.iat is not to suggest that the ixon administration itself is in- different to Ihe problems that jave brought a new tension to he old friendship or is less than eager to find solutions. Despilc the fact the American jublic and press have largely aken a ho-hum altitude, Ihe cw York Times says in an edi- orial today that although the .rip "may rank well down his .1st as a foreign travel spectacu- ,ar it could be one of his most .mportanl ventures abroad and is certain to be one ol his most delicate." GOODWILL EXISTS Still, although the majority of Americans apparently have a feeling of goodwill to- ward Canada, the pros and cons of lingering disagreements be- tween the two countries are a closed hook to most. The fact that Nixon does not have in the background an aroused public watching in hopeful anticipation for some clues to eventual solution of the problems that have long both- ered many Canadians probably affords Nixon the luxury of a. more relaxed approach to fhi. talks, observers here suggest. Except for a lengthy New York Times article giving de- tails of the range of differences between Canada and the U.S. and a smattering of ediloria comment, Ihe press has given little space to the visit. Thursday, the Washington Star carried a lengthy article or. the trip. The Washington Post carried on page 25 a brief Oltawa-date item on security Lawyer claims unborn betrayed arrangements there. There was no story in the Washington News. In the view of some observers here the trip suffers from the point of view of advance public- ity by the fact it is being sand- wiched between the much-cov- ered China trip and the ap- proaching presidential mission to Moscow next month. However, more than 80 Amer- can radio, television and news- laper correspondents will be ravelling to Ottawa lo report on the trip to the U.S. public. Concern over relations with 'anada hit a high point In Con- gress at the time of the U.S. 10-per-cent tax on dutiable im- ports, with a number of legisla- ors speaking heatedly on Can- ada's behalf and pleading for a special consideration. Subsequently, when Ihe U.S. negotiated new short-term trade arrangements with Japan and the Common Market early this year, it was broadly anticipated Ihe protectionist elements in Congress would concentrate on Canada, seeking a similar deal with Ottawa. CONCKRN SUBMERGED However, this congressional altack never materialized and any concern over Canada has been largely submerged of late by U.S. preoccupation with tho worsening war situation in Viet- nam, the approaching presiden- tial election, the economy In ITALIAN POLICE BATTLE STUDENTS Helmeled and club-swinging police sur- round a car where some demonstrators look jheller during clashes between leftisl stu- dents and police in Naples.

For example, the un. born have property and inherit' ance rights under provincially administered civil law but no onger have tho protection and of criminal law. "There is no scientific evi- dence that human life begins at any moment other than the In- stant ol conception." He accused pro-abortionists and the news media of distorl- ng the issue, making it appear o be a question of the mother's right lo freedom of choice rather than the "essential func- ion of protecting the sanctitv of life."
