Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, Ausjusl 21, 1972--------------------------------------------- Canada to go 6all-out' to cultivate Cuba trade OTTAWA (CP> Canada has decided to all-out in cul- tivating trade witli Cuba, after j years of carefully pursuing n low-key for oE of- fending American sensitivities. The new approach lias paral- lels in fields oilier than trade, officials hero say. lioth coun- tries have Ix'cn making a con- scious effort to raise tlieir rela- tions above tlic iirms-lenRlh level that has prevailed since (he Cuban revolution. Canada's deerminalion to penetrate deeper into the Cu- ban commercial market is demonstrated by (lie appoint- ment of two trade officers to the Canadian iMubassy in Ila- vana. They are Stuart JIcDowall, 32, of" Pincer Creek, Alta., and Gregory Darycliuk, 29, of Kc-i gioa. They take (lie place of a single trade John Hill. 3-1. of was reassigned recently. But possibly the most re- markable thing about the pointment of the two men is the til'es thcv hold. Mr. McDowall. posted by the trade department from lieirnt, Lebanon, is first secretary (commercial and consul. Mr. Darychuk, on his first foreign posting, is third secretary (commercial) and vice-consul. When Mr. Hill reopened the Havana trade office about two years ago, following an eight- year shutdown, he was listed simply as a second secretary, no open reference being made to liis commercial activities. The official explanation Is that Mr. Hill's assignment was in the nature of an "ex- periment." However, Ottawa sources at the time attributed the government's refusal to call a spade a spade to a reluctance to undue attention to the reopening of the trade office. This in turn was motivated by a desire not to offend Wash- ington, which has frequently ehown displeasure over contin- uing Canadian trade with Cuba. The United Stales, which used to be Cuba's No. 1 trading partner, severed commercial tics with the Caribbean island in 1960, the year after a revolu- tion brought Marxist Premier l-'idel Castro to power. A trade department official equaled (he present attitude with ddibcrae efforts Canada has bet'n making to increase its trade wilb Knssia and China. "The entire global situation is beginning to loosen he said, noting that the U.S. itself now is making moves to enter the Chinese and Soviet mar- kets. Canada Commerce, official publication of the [ratio depart- ment, recently carried feature articles on Canadian trade with Cuba for the first time in more than ID years. Observing that Canada sold goods wortli million to Cuba last year by a lilUc more than SI million from the year before the magazine said: "Trade between the two Detectives working 011 tougli ease LONDON' fAT1) A team of detectives is working in (he grimy precincts of Waterloo Sta- tion irying to crack a murder case that has Scotland Yard worried. Widower Graham Arthur fiS, retired railway worker, was .stabbed through the heart late al night on an ill-lit footbridge. Violent robbery in the street was rare here until less than three years ago. Now it hap- pens daily in major cities. Most attacks are carried out by about four young men, frequently teen-agers. In Hills's case jwlice have de- scriptions of two of four or five young men seen loitering near the footbridge the corpse wa.s fount] by a passer-by. Statistically, the crime comes within a general classification of Robbery. In London last year cases of robbery and as- sault with intent to rob totalled increase of more than 15 per cent from 1970. countries might IK? a lot t( Canadians bestirred tliem- sclvt'S." Already, Cuba hough t more wheat and tfum either the Soviet Union or China. Cuban exports lo Canada lust year totalled million. Informed sources say over-nil relations between Hid two coun- tries have been deepening.

Cuba helped Canada resolve tho James Cross kidnapping case two years ago by agree- ing, at Canada's request, to grant domicile to the abduc- tors. The Canadian University Service Overseas, a technical and .social aid organization with government backing, lias been operating iti Cuba for more than a year, and the Canadian International Development Agency is understood to have extended a small a mount of economic aid t o Cuba in the form of technical advice.
