Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, April 14, 19, 3 Canada plans to adopt U.S. JL auto standards By JEFF CARRUTHERS ilerald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA As expected, Canada has decided to fall in behind the United States ar.d adopt auto emission standards for 1975 model cars that are slightly more stringent than the 1974 standards but that are con- siderably softer than the origi- nal 1975 proposed air pollution standards. Environment Jlinister Jack Davis yesterday confirmed, out- side the Commons that Canada will adopt the new U.S. national "interim" auto exhaust stand- ards for 1975. Wednesday, the U.S. Environ- mental Protection Agency, EPA, announced it was post- poning the more stringent, pre- viously proposed 1975 standards APPOINTMENT W. R. (WARREN) HACKE James H. Baird and Co. Ltd., Customs Brokers, are pleased to introduce Mr. W. R. (Warren) Hacke, whom we welcome to our firm.

Mr. Davis and Transport Min- ister Jean Marchand explained .Canada's "follow the U.S." pol- icy by pointing to the fact that Canada's auto industry is inter- locked with the American in- dustry the auto pact, and the fact that as a result Canada produces cars sold in the U.S. and vice-versa. Both ministers, who are jointly responsible for the auto emission standards, said Thurs- day that the official Canadian position will bs made public "very shortly." They agreed that Canada vould adopt the U.S. national "in- terim" standards. For the automakers and car buyers in both countries, the U.S. and Canadian decisions mean that 1975 model cars, with some exceptions, will not need the controversial and expensive add-on catalytic converters which would have been needed to meet the original, tougher 1975 proposed standards. If one believes auto industry estimates, this could mean sav- ings of or more per car for 1975 automobiles sold in Can- ada, without the special cataly- tic converters. But it should be noted that even the new, softened stand- ards wiH result in some in fact 10 per cent or more- being produced in both coun- tries with the catalytic con- j verters. The U.S. decision also calls for tougher 1975 standards for California than in the rest of the U.S., and the California models will require the cataly- tic mufflers. And federal officials believe that automakers will market some top-of-the line models with :he catalytic mufflers in Can- ada and throughout the U.S., as test of technical effectiveness and consumer acceptance.
