Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Jl THE IETHBRIBGE HERALD Wednesday, December 16, 1970 Cross case narrows Canada-Britain gap I1AHOLD MOHKISON LONDON (CP) A higlt- pht'cd British informant says the Cross affair brought tlic British and Canadian govern- ments closer together than tliey had been "for a long time past." The kidnapping and subse- quent rescue of the British trade official swept away months of Anglo-Canadian diplo- matic inertia. Tills aided in establishing a closer relationship b e t w e c n Prime Minister Heath and Prime Minister Trudeau, who meet today in what the inform- ant described as "an aura of mutual congratulations." But though Heath will again offer his congratulations for the release of Cross from Ms Front de Liberation du Quebec cap- tors, tliere will be a lot more on the British leader's mind during i ticnship, but things are not his one-day visit. Heath is anxious to explon Trade-all's views on relation: within the Commonwealth ant to assure Canada that the An glo-Canadian link is unlikely t be broken when Britain enters the European Common Market "It will be a matter of adjust the informant said. "I will be a different kind of rela Buy now and Save on qualify men's wear at the low- est prices. MEN'S DRESS PANTS Al a wonderful Pre-Christmas saving.

The Commonwealth k a dif- ferent matter. Heath is reported to feel that British sentiment to- wards the 31-country association has beer, eroded mainly because of repeated Afro-Asian attacks on Britain at the United Na- tions. Heath feels that if Britain concludes it is in its national self-interest to sell arms to South Africa, that decision should not be used as a weapon to destroy the Commonwealth. Afro-Asian members have warned that such British arms would not only lead to breakup of the Commonwealth but also would bring trade sanc- tions against British exports. Canada also has warned that the arms sales could seriously damage the Commonwealth and it is this point which may take up a large slice of the Heath Trudeau talks. Heath has yet to make a final decision on the arms issue, The two bachelor leaders, meeting for the first time as, prime ministers, will discuss a number of other issues, includ- ing NATO and EasHVest rela- tions. And they may find them- selves concentrating on Com- monwealth problems in view ol the prime ministers' conference in Singapore next month. An editorial which appeared in the staunch Tory newspaper, The Daily Telegraph, Tuesday said, "Canada is emerging' all the time with a more distinct character and influence.
