The Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling contractors rig activity map shows 145 rigs drilling, 23 rigs moving, and 148 lying idle of the 321 rigs avail- able for work. This is more than three times the number active last May when drilling slipped to a 14- year low of 37 rigs. Alberta leads with 105 drill- ing followed by 22 rigs now drilling in northern Canada. The Meekwap area 30 miles northwest of Whitecourt and the foothills region along the east slope of the Rockies are the most active areas in Alberta. Eight provinces plan Iiike automobile insurance TORONTO (CP) Antonio-[ In Ontario, the indicated aver bile- insurance premiums in eight Canadian provinces arc expected to increase by an av- erage of 4.8 per cent in 1972, indicated premium changes computed by the Canadian Un- derwriters Association show.

Premium changes in the gov- ernment-run car insurance plans in Saskatchewan and Manitoba aren't expected to be available until early in 1972. D. D. McKay, chairman of the association's auto department executive committee, said the rate increases are needed bR- cause of continuing inflation and an increase in the number of car accidents in Canada in the 1970 statistical year. The net indebtedness of 2 billion at the end of 1969 com- pares with a net of only bil- lion at the end of the Second World War when gross liabili- ties were S8.2 billion and Can- ada's foreign assets were bil- lion. The big increase since then has been in direct invest- ment in Canadian business by foreign firms. Statistics growth of Canada said the foreign investment slowed down in the first half of the 1960s, but picked up again and "rose rapidly in the second over the whole period since 1926, the bureau said, the tional indebtedness has amount- ed to only slightly more than four per cent a year. "In the light of the great ex- pansion of productive capacity and changes in price levels which have taken place in the last half-century, the relative burden of Canada's debtor posi- tion has been substantially re- duced." Most of the Canadian invest- ment abroad in the late 1960s was in manufacturing, and own- ership was highly concentrated in a few large Canadian enter- prises. At the end of 1967, about Canadian concerns were con- trolled by non-residents, and foreign capital was invested di- rectly oi' indirectly in about Canadian concerns. The largest part of U.S. long- term investment in Canada was in U.S.-controlled enterprises. The proportion of foreign own- ership of Canadian industry re- mained practically unchanged at 35 per cent from 1961 to 1967. The largest incidence of foreign ownership was in petroleum and natural gas, 62 per cent, and in mining and smelting, 61 per cent. About 52 per cent of Cana- dian manufacturing industry is foreign-owned. But the ratio of ownership and control in these highlight indus- tries is not indicative of foreign ownership and control of the whole national wealth of Can- ada, the bureau said. Social in- vestment, agriculture, residen- tial real estate and personal property is almost wholly Cana- dian-owned.

The installation will be made at the company's expense, a GM spokesman said today. The notification may involve OAvners of about 600.000 ]9G5-to- regular-size Chevrolets and Novas, as well as 19G7-to-19G9 C a m a r o s and certain light trucks and other vehicles with similar V-8 engints.

General Motors will begin no- tifying owners by mail as soon as current owners' names can be obtained from company deal- ers or provincial registration records.
