Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta HIGH FORECAST SUNDAY 50 The LctWnridge Herald VOL. LXV No. 100 LETHBIUDGK, ALBERTA, SATURDAY, APRIL J5, 1972 I'KICE NOT OVER ID Cli.YI'b SEVEN SECTIONS -99 PAGES No change in Canada-U.S. trade issues By JOHN HAY OTTAWA (CP) Beneath expressions of satisfac- tion from both sides, there appears littie evidence that Prime Minister Trmicau and President Nixon made pro- gress on Hie Canatlri-U.S. trade deadlock beyond ail agreement to take another look at their positions. Officials speaking for Mr. Trudeau and Mr. Nixon after lire leaders met Friday indicated Canada has won another assurance from Mr. Nixon that the United States is not demanding a continuing trade surplus with Canada in future years. But, in their briefings for reporters, they made it clear that tho leaders did not budge from bargaining positions taken during months of futile negotiations on a number of trade irritants between the two countries. The talks broke off Feb. 9 after Washington officials decided there was no chance of settlement. Ronald Zieglor, While House press secretary, jaid the two leaders agreed "to review their positions with a view to getting the ialks started again.' Later, a Canadian official used almost the Both stressed that no time period for the reviews was discussed, though Mr. Ziegler said the United States would like resumption pretty soon. Auto pact bypassed The Canadian official, spoke on the under- standing that his name not he used, said the most con- tentious issue in (he trade talks the auto pact was not dealt with specifically. Canadian officals said before the president's arrival Thursday they were looking forward to harder evi- dence from Mr. Nixon of the "fantastically new state- ment" Mr. Trudeau said he got fi'om the president dur- ing their meeting in Washington last December. Mr. Tvudcau said that was a presidential assur- ance that the United States does not demand a con- tinuing trade surplus with Canada to help pay for the investments Americans make in Canada. The government won that confirmation when Mr. Nixon told a joint sitting of Parliament Friday that Washington does not "always want a surplus trade with Canada so that we could always export capital there." But the Canadian official noted tile difference be- tween that long-run issue, on which agreement seems complete, and the short-run trade dispute. In the short-run, lie said, the United States is to difficulty and wants its trading partners to help. He said Mr. Trudeau offered sympathy and under- standing. In the trade talks, Washington has been seeking changes in trading arrangements with Canada, espe- cially the auto pact, have led to a Canadian trade surplus with the United States in the last few years. Ottawa says that surplus may not, he permanent, and that Canada needs to sell more to the United States than it buys in order to earn extra U.S. dollars to pay interest and dividends to U.S. investors. Mr. Nixon said in his speech he understands that view since the United States sought freedom from de- pendence on European capital before the First World War. Aside from that pledge from the president, Cana- dian officials also wanted Nixon to help create an atmosphere that could lead to resumption of the trade talks. Asked whether he thought Mr. NLxon had met IJmsfl hopes, one Canadian official said be is "happy with what ho said." "We're all please. The discussions between Mr. Tnideau and Mr. Nix- on were very general over a range of bilateral and international issues.
