Members of all three opposi- tion parties argued that this was an infringement on t he workers freedom of choice, that if a worker did not wish to join a union he would be pen- alized by not being able to do work for the government.

Discussions planned on ship flags By IAIN HUNTER Herald Ottawa Burean OTTAWA Transport Minis- ter Jean Marchand said Mon- day he wil' bold discussions" Premier Dave Barrett on the possibility of reserving the coast shipping trade for shios flying the Canadian flag. He said in the House of Com- mons that he is prepared to dis- cuss with Barrett implement- v> tion of this policy on the Pacific Coast even thcugh Atlantic premiers oppose it on economic grounds.
