S. 328-4765 Gray's ouster catches department by surprise Italy rocked by violence OTTAWA (CP) Surprise was the common emotion in the consumer and corporate affairs department Thursday whe'rT it was learned Herb Gray will not lead the depart- ment in the new cabinet. Mr Gray, 43, named to the post in November, 1972. had what many observers consid- ered an impressive record of legislation aimed at protecting the consumer. The department was launch- ed in 1967 and was led first by John Turner, then Ron Basford and before Mr. Gray, by Robert Andras. Former postmaster-general Andre Ouellet. a lawyer, now assumes the post. Prime Minister Trudeau announced Thursday Mr Ouellet. 35, was elected to Parliament in 1967 and was appointed to his former post in 1972. Among Mr Gray's accom- plishments were three major pieces of bill to implement a new competition policy, the anti-profiteering bill and the Canada business corporation act. He also succeeded in having put into force a Packaging and Labelling Act and a Weights and Measures Act Work has also been completed on a new Bankruptcy Act, which is vir- tually ready tor presentation to the new Parliament. Policy papers also were issued proposing a new federal mutual funds law and a revis- ed trade marks law. Among new product safety standards issued were safety closures for home-cleaning products, hockey helmets, in- fant's cribs, electric kettles and children's car seats. Box 99, the consumer complaint and advice bureau also was spread to storefront operations. Some regional offices now are operating in New Brunswick and Ontario and a total of about 20 were planned. Close liaison also was estab- lished with the Consumer's Association of Canada and the revamped Canadian Con- sumer Council and a new Con- sumer Research Council were created Before his consumer and corporate affairs post, Mr. Gray served as revenue minister and prior to that as minister without portfolio. "I am pleased said Mr Gray "I was able to bring about hat I consider to be measures ot real importance and value to all James O'Grady, president of the Consumers' Association By ROD CURRIE The Canadian Press The brutal bombing of the Rome-Munich Express has brought to world attention a sporadic five-year campaign of violence in Italy for which arch-right wingers hold the Left responsible, while leftists pin the blame squarely on Fascist elements. Whoever is respon- there is a body of opinion that extremists on both sides are aim almost certainly is to develop a state of tension which will foster a popular de- mand lor authoritarian government The tact that three alleged members of the underground Black Order have been charg- ed in connection with the blast last Saturday that killed 12 passengers adds weight to the popular belief that the Fascists are behind the cam- paign Earlier police had received a message, allegedly from the Order, claiming responsibility and saying "the Nazi banner did not die in Berlin in 1945: It continues to live for a great, Fascist and Nazi Italy." Nevertheless, other Fascist groups and the arch-rightwing political party Movimento So- ciale Italano all claim it is simply a Communist plot to blacken them. Members of the MSI, which in order to remain a legal par- ty must demonstrate it is not Fascist, charge that every time they make political progress toward the goal of non-violent constitutional collapse, another bombing serves to discredit them. The theme of their cam- paign, they claim, is to seek collapse through inflaming public opinion on the current economic crisis and the scan- dals of corruption. But the per- sons have been killed and hundreds injured in similar in- cidents since the original one in Milan in swept economics and corruption off the front pages, giving the government of Premier Mariano Rumor an unusual breathing-space. However, the reaction of the trade unions in calling strikes and work stoppages to mourn the loss of life has the effect of delaying trains and bringing millions off the job tem- porarily. In the long-term this sort of action only hampers the government in its efforts to restore some order to the shaky national economy. As The Daily Telegraph of London put it in an editorial: "Italy is already far enough ad anced along the road to e< jmic and political chaos ithout such irresponsible ac- tion. "Indeed, it can be argued that the massive Communist party has by far the most to gain from a deteriorating situ- ation TITANIUM FOUND BRASILIA (Reuter) Brazilian technicians have discovered what might be one of the world's largest deposits of metal used in making missiles, supersonic aircraft and space western Mato Grosso state, it was officially announced here. HERB GRAY of Canada, said in an inter- view he was "saddened that the prime minister couldn't make use of Mr. Gray in some other capacity in cabinet." Mr O'Grady. while praising Mr Gray's "impressive" record, thought the reason for termination ot his appoint- ment was because "he perhaps should have been more torceful in public. "The position demands a dy- namic, forceful said Mr. O'Gradv. U.S. ready for black vice-president MONTREAL (CP) People of the United States are ready for a black vice- president. Tom Bradley.
