Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Docombor 10, 1970 THE LETHERIDGE MERAID 33 Some ramifications already evident in Canada-China diplomatic relations By JOHN BEST OTTAWA (CP) Twenty months of on-and-off negotia- tions at Stockholm culminated in the establishment of diplo- matic relations between Can- ada and mainland China Oct. 13, 1070. The accord, 12 days after the 21st anniversary of the Chinese Communist republic, overshadowed publication of theTrudeau government's foreign policy white paper as the top event of the year in in- ternational relations. It is certain to have major ramifications for the future, both domestically and exter- nally, and some of these am already evident. The white paper, published in June, was perhaps not all that difficult to overshadow. The six-volume document was basically conservative in philosophy and did nothing to dispel any notion that Canada is becoming increasingly in- ward-looking. PERFORMANCE LAGS Future ramifications are harder to see. An undertaking to increase annually the pro- portion of national income de- voted to government-financed aid could confront Canada with a moment of truth within a relatively few years. Canada's performance in helping under-developed coun- tries has yet to match its avowed intentions. The policy of progressively increasing the share of na- tional wealth devoted to this with a SfiO million boost to million in the next fiscal been roundly criticized because it involves no firm commitment to raise aid to one per cent of the gross national product. Canada accepted this widely endorsed international target years ago, but has never come close to meeting it. Despite the generality of the government's new commit- ment, it may require a firm hand to follow through in the face of competing demands on the public purse. This would be especially true if the eco- nomic climate worsens, re- quiring federal pump-priming measures and straining the al- ready tight budgetary situa- tion. C a n a d a's recognition of mainland Cliina had an imme- diate, catalytic effect. It was quickly followed by Italy's de- cision to recognize the Peking regime, using precise.lv the same formula as Canada, and it appeal's likely that other countries will follow suit.

The vote was 51 to 49, with 25 abstentions. Canada sup- ported the resolution instead of abstaining as in recent years. The Communist regime failed to get the two-lhirds majority required under a procedural device successfully employed once more by the United States to make Cliina's admission more difficult. Nevertheless, the fact that Peking received a majority of the vcies cast for ana against raised more tellingly than ever the question of how long it can or should be kept out. An exchange of ambassa- dors between Peking and Ot- tawa is expected within three or four months. A Canadian embassy will get into opera- tion in the Chinese capital, under a charge d'affaires, soon after Jan. 1. Meanwhile, the ambassador from the Chiang Kai-shek Na- tionalist government on For- mosa has left Canada. ECONOMICS UNCLEAR Hope has been expressed that C a n a d a's competitive position in the Chinese export market will improve, but the outlook is far from clear. The Peking government in the past has tended to separate political and economic consid- erations in its over-all foreign policy. 011 a w a's foreign policy white paper followed intensive review undertaken soon after Prime Minister Trudeau took office two years ago. "In essence, foreign policy is the product of (lie govern- ment's progressive definition and pursuit of national aims and interests in the interna- tional said a typical passage. "It is the ex- tension abroad of national pol- icies." It knocked the internation- alism of former prime minis- ters Louis St. Laurent and Lester Pearson, and of former external affairs minister Paul Martin, saying there had been an "over-emphasis on role and Influence" and deriding the notion of Canada as a "helpful fixer" in world af- fairs. The white paper defined six main themes of national pol- icy which it said also form the "broad framework" of foreign pojicy: economic growth, sov- ereignty and independence, peace and security, social jus- tice, quality of life, and a har- monious natural environment. Criticism of the white paper started from what appeared to be an excessive preoccupa- tion with Canada's own self- interest. Critics agreed that it was proper to take national objec- tives into account when con- ducting external relations, but argued that the authors of the white paper had allowed these to become an obsession. Of 17 prominent Canadians who expressed their views in an anthology put together by the Canadian Institute of In- ternational Affairs, few had anything charitable to say about the white paper. CASE SUMMED UP Prof. Maxwell Cohen o f McGill University summed up the case when he wrote that the various studies "seem cu- riously schizophrenic in their attempt to preserve the needs and tradition of Canada's in- ternational involvement while emphasizing a rationale for the future where national preoccupations seem to come Presbyterian Ladies' aid elects slate GRANUM (HNS1) The La- dies' Aid of the Knox Presby- erian Church of Jumbo Valley met recently at the home of H.

Another sharp criticism was that there was no separate study of Canada's relations with the United States, though the white paper recognized lhat these would continue to be of over-riding importance. Possibly the main benefit conferred by the white paper was an intangible: It gave scores of people in the exter- nal affairs, trade and other departments, involved in put- ting it together, an occasion lo re-think old concepts and per- haps equip themselves with some fresh ideas for the fu- ture.
