Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, April 20, THE LCTHBRIDQE HEHALU Personal sniping ends week of bitterness in House OTTAWA (CP) The air of acrimony hanging over the Commons for the last week thickened Friday as Prime Min- ister Trudeau and opposition MPs hurled comments laced with personal barbs across the House Labor disputes involving public servants, soaring inflation and high interest rates continued to form the backdrop for the heated exchanges, but there was more than the usual amount of personal sniping Allegations of government inaction and disinterest in major national problems were hauled out repeatedly during the 40-minute question period Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield asked if the govern- ment is ready to face a confidence vote after choosing to debate proposed football legislation rather than inflation and strikes and essential services Prime Minister Trudeau countered that it is "typical of the Tory

the Canadian economy This was part of a paper presented to the Canadian Bar Association's law of the sea seminar by lawyer Brian Flemmmg He was unable to present the paper himself because of travel problems so it was read by Donat Pharand, a University of Ottawa law professor Canada produces about 40 per cent of the world's nickel from conventional mining, but this apparently would be threatened seriously by seabed mining that would produce enormous quanities of nickel At minimum, we have an interest in ensuring the stability of the international nickel market Mr Flemmmg said "In the broadest political sense, Canada also has an interest in the international seabed area because the developing world has taken a great interest in the dizzying wealth which may he on the ocean floors The nickel would be just one of many metallic minerals re- coverable from the seabed, in- cluding manganese, molybde num copper, cobalt, zinc and lead MISKIN SCRAPERS Easy Loading and Accurate Spending 4.8 Yards
