Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta OTTAWA (CP) Smce 1967, after taking account of inflation the output of Canada in rca goods and services ha.i grown by a little more than four per cent a year. In dollar terms, it has grown a litUe more than 8.5 per cent a year, but Ihe difference between that and four-per-cent annua growlh rate is inflation and no actual goods and services. Statistics Canada, which unti last week was known as the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, re cently started putting monthly figures on Ihe total output of real goods and services in the domestic economy. And while these figures have shown unusual gyrations in recent inonUis, tiie underlying trend also seems to be up. Statistics Canada indexes of rea domestic product, for instance, rose by only one-tenth of one per cent in February, and .jumped 1.1 per cent in March. The growth was only two-tenths of one per cent in April, and five-tenths or half of one per cent in four Preliminary figures for June, released las' week and covering about one third of the total, showed another five-tenths of one per cent increase that month. In an interview last week, Finance Minister E. J. Benson expressed pleasure at the May rate of growth, and on (he basis of statistical averages, it would Eeem to be a healthy one. II carried on at that rate for 12 months, the year's growth would be 6.2 per cent, considerably better than average for the last few years. Included in this over-all measure of Canadian output, however, is one highly variable agriculture. The oulput of Canadian farms accounts for almost five per cent of the country's total output, out it is subject to wide fluctuation because of weather and markets. Some statisticians and economists believe that the index of real output apart from agriculture gives a better picture of the country's at least the kind of production over which man has more direct cent Statistics Canada's index of real domestic product less agriculture has also risen by an average of a little belter than four per cent a year since 1967. UP TIIIIEE PER CENT And looking at the record ot the economic slump the country has been going through, the latest for Kay, shows an increase of alwut three per cent from the low point reached last. October. While it has taken about seven months to achieve this, economists in the government think it is a good performance. They are still predicting there will be strong growlh in the Canadian economy during the second half of this year, continuing on into 1972. But, as Mr. Benson said last week, there is real concern about how well Ihe United States will handle its inflation and its serious deficit in its balance of payments. These could have adverse effects on Uie Canadian economy, particularly ii Washington moves to arrest the flow of U.S. dollars into purchases in Canada and other it it A lit A 1 A, {'_ L'li'rJl 1 X O Un fvlemoriami 1 friend, Dave Dowd, who passed away August ;fl, 1970.

The Ontario agreement was signed by Robert An-dras, minister of state for urban affairs, Jack Davis, federal minister of the environment, and George Ken-, Ontario's minister of the environment. Ottawa, through Central Mortgage and Housing Corp., will lend Ontario municipalities two-thirds of the cost of building or refurbishing sewage treatment plants. That arrangement was already available under the National Hording Act and 25 per cent of the loan is forgiveable. But Mr. Kerr said Ontario wanted to speed up its program to meet the objectives for water quality in an international pact Prime Minister Tru-deau and U.S. President ard Nixon will likely sign in late October or early November. So Ontario agreed to ensure that municipalities install or improve million worth of sewage treatment equipment by 1975.
