Ian Pais- ley, a hardliner who speaks for a powerful body of Protestants. He said no level of violence would be acceptable to the peo- ple of Northern Ireland. They would be "even more frustrated by this public decla- ration that it is not the intention of the British government to ab- solutely win the battle against the he said.

The U.S. government had an- nounced Aug. 15 a sin-tax of up to 10 per cent on imports, de- signed to attack Ihe trade bal- ance problem by d' imports. But imports from Can- ada continued to increa month since then. IMPOKTS IN'C'liUASlC Total exports last month were billion, while in! billion. Exports were up to 6.4 per cent and imports 27.7 per cent from the same month a year earlier. For the 11 months from Janu- ary to November, exports were billion, up 4.9 per cent, while imports were billion, up 10.0 per cent.

Hut over I the 11-month period, Canada's trade surplus was billion this year compared with million last year.
