Telephone 328-9231 Indians, Eskimos claim big areas of north Canada By ROBERT TRUMBULL New York Times Service OTTAWA Land claims covering huge areas of poten- tially rich wilderness in northern Canada are being made by Indians and Eskimos, and there are some threats of backing the claims with legal action against the government. An organization representing about Indians in the Northwest Territories, which is federally controlled, has asserted communal ownership of a tract, the equivalent of about 11 per cent of the country. Representatives of some Eskimos in the Northwest Territories and about Indians in the Yukon territory are still working out the extent of their claims. Other areas claimed by individual tribes dot the country. Some are small, like the 14-acre park in the resort town of Kenora in northwestern Ontan -hat the Ojibways say was sold to the municipality illegally. In most instances the Indians are demanding the return of tracts held by the Canadian government under various agreements and treaties whose validity is now being challenged. The agitation in the Canadian north has been fueled by the million settlement of land claims in Alaska voted by the United States Congress in 1971, with the money going to 12 regional corporations and through them to the villages of the or so aboriginal Alaskans. Some Indians and Eskimos living in Canada have shared in the United States settlement. The Canadian government, confronted with the settle- ment in Alaska as a Frecedent, has backed away from an earlier position of summarily rejecting Indian claims to land held in the name of the crown. The government acquired title to vast areas in the north by taking over control from the Hudson's Bay Company, which had asserted ownership through royal grants. Jean Chretien, the former minister for Indian affairs in northern development, stated t an official function in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, this year that the federal government wanted normal claims "submitted as quickly as possible so that we can come to grips with the problem of settlement." Chretien, who has since been made president of the Treasury Board, a higher ranking post in Prime Minister Trudeau's cabinet, added that the government could not agree to halt development pending a settlement. Preliminary surveys by the Canadian government and private interests have indicated that the disputed lands in the Canadian north are potentially rich in fuels and ores. According to the geological survey of Canada, ultimately recoverable resources in the north, on land and offshore, include more than 28 billion barrels of oil and 343 trillion cubic feet of natural gas mines in the Yukon territory, scene of a gold rush :n 1898, produced million worth of ores last year, and more than '00 companies are prospecting for copper, lead, zinc, tungsten and other metals. The proposed Mackenzie Valley pipeline from northern Alaska through Canada is also in- volved. Groups representing Eskimos, Indians and Metis, or part Indians, have formed a joint organization, called the Federa- tion of Natives North of 60, for concerted action on land claims and other issues. The figure 60 refers to the 60th Parallel, which forms the boundary between the provinces of southern Canada and the federally-administered Yukon and Northwest Territories of the north, plus the northern tips of Quebec and Newfoundland. On another front, the recent annual conference of the In- dian Association of Alberta, Canada's principal oil-producing province, decided to go to court if necessary with a claim to the valuable oil-bearing sands of Athabasca. The Alberta Indians propose to press their claim to the oil sands, potentially worth billions of dollars, on the basis of a ruling in the Northwest Territories Supreme Court that land and mineral rights are exempted from the rights ceded to the government by old treaties with the Indians. The government has appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court of Canada. Union figures said misleading OTTAWA (CP) Inter- national unions collected million in dues and assessments in 1972 from Canadian members while pay- ing back million in salaries, strike benefits and pension and welfare payments to members in this country, a Statistics Canada annual report shows. The figures, which raise a controversy every year among union members, are based on selected financial data reported to the govern- ment by unions under the Cor- porations and Labor Unions Returns Act Both international unions and the Canadian Labor Congress (CLC) have bitterly protested release of the figures because the report does not include total expen- ditures by the unions each year. In 1971, the international un- ions, which represent about 60 per cent of Canada's organiz- ed labor, spent million, while collecting million in dues and assessments. The international unions have, in many cases, been un- der pressure from nationalist breakaway groups who have used the CALURA reports as evidence that Canadian members are paying vast sums to American parent un- ions. But the CLC says the figures are misleading because they do not include expenditures on publications, research, ad- ministration, professional ser- vices, depreciation of assets and public relations. The report includes a dis- claimer saying that the figures do not show a full ac- count of union expenditures. The disclaimer also notes that the income side does not include revenues from million of cash deposits and investments held in Canada by international unions. Of the amount collected by international unions in 1972, is from per capita membership dues, from strike assessments and from health and welfare assessments. Initia- tion fees, death benefit assessments, work permits, fines and other assessments account for the remainder. In 1971, was from per capita dues, from strike benefit assessments and from health and welfare assessments. The 88 international unions paid out in salaries to union officers and employees, in strike benefits and in pen- sion and welfare benefits in 1972 Sears Step up to the convenience of our lowest- price family- size Frostless Coldspot never needs defrosting!
