Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Stir -'M (I BALKED EY BLIZZARD Early mornmq IraFfic on n ma or OHawa street snar s Friday after the cily was till by more lhan a foo of snow dur ng the night. Ottawa workers siragg ed in la e, police adv sed people lo nve their cars a home and buses were crammed wflh commurcrs. Accidenis, Few because "It s hard lo go in the heo'-'y a police spokesman co about NEW YORK TCP) Multinational corporations must lake account of Canadian aspirations and inleresLs if they would retain Ihe frewiora of action they now enjoy in Canada, External Affairs Minister Milchell Sharp said Thursday. He also criticized uruiajned corporations operating in Canada for Mr. Sharp told the retain i Management Association, a high-powered group of United Stales industrial and corpora-lion executives, that Canada's approach to foreign invesLmenls American will remain positive. He ndned, however: are determined that foreign corporations will serve Canadian Interests, We ng free tress Canadian priorities and respond lo Canadian aspirations." New forces were coming into play in Canadian as well as U.S. socicly: A growing concern about the health of the environment, a search for "new qualitative goals" and an urge to equalize opportunities. "These new aspirations, as well as basic national interests and priorities, must be taken into account by multi-national corporatic-ns if they aie to continue to have Vtte high degree of freedom of action in Canada Uiat they now enjoy." DECISIONS MADE TN U.S. Mr. Sharp noted that much o[ Canada's labor force works for American multi-national corporations and "key decisions af-fee-ling our economic life are ottcu made on your side of the border." corporations had brought Canada prosperity. It was hardly surprising, however, that many Canadians were concerned, nor that the Canadian government was preoccupied with the same questions, added Mr. Sharp in apparent reference to Hie foreign-ownership review undertaken by tlie federal ?dom "It is asking for trouble, for example, to concentrate research, development and design in the home country, denying to the host nation opportunities fo strengthen ils own scientific and teclmologieal capabilities. He found no contradiction between his position as in advocate of liberal trading and investment policies and his position as a supporter of "some limilalions" on operations of foreign-controlled corporations in Canada. Mr. Sharp cited action taken to ensure domestic control of the Canadian banking system and the media. He chided Washington for its efforts in the past to apply its Trading with the Enemy Act to Canadian subsidiaries of American corporations. The debate on economic nationalism involved a reconciliation between the principle ol free Irade and free movement ot capital and technology, and UK principle that each slate should control its economic destiny. He k-ll such reconciliation was possible without imposition of harmful MLA raps Tory 'indecision' EDMONTON (CP) fto Wilson, Social Credit oppositio MLA, says Ihe progressiv Conservative government's "in elecision" is jeopardizing plan for Industrial development i Alberta. The me'mber for Calgary said developers of potentia new industry for the provinc are alarmed by "the veile threat of nationalization" of in vestor-owned utlities, which ar being studied by a government members committee. Tlie government made exten sive election promises that ed ucation taxes would be re moved from residential prop erty without saying how thl money would be replaced, Mr Wilson said. Existing and po tenlial Industries are wonderin if they will be required to pic up the slack. He said indecision and ru mors about increased in pelro Icum and natural gas explora tion and production fees an royalties arc becoming a mal ler of urgent concern becaus of Ibe effects on exploration. "Oil companies cannot ever prepare current budgets, le alone plan for the long yerm, u long as this indecision con tinues." lease c for Indiai RED DEER (CP) Dr. Allan Warrack, Alberta lands and forests minister, .said today he has no thought of allowing Chief Robert Smallboy Indians to lease crown land for a reserve1. There's no place for them to find employment where thej arc livinej now, TJr. Warraok said. For Hint reason, he said he was uncomfortable about granting the band a site for a long-term land i band Tlie minister said he had occasion to fiy over the Koo-tcnay Lake, campsite after it was abandoned. "It was left in a heck of e mess." The forestry office in Rocky Mountain House has gone in to begin lo clean up the area. Officials said a great heap of garbage had been dumped on a ridge behind the former camp. They said a bulldozer departments of roads and justice.

They now are at a site on MuskiM probably would take four men with a truck a week to pick up tlie Junk abandoned in the trees surrounding the ramp, officials said. Dr. Warrack said it concerned him that the SmalJboy band had moved from an area with a reasonable source of employment opportunity. Where they are now, he said, future isn't very bright. He indicated he Is uncertain what action the government will take in Chief Smallboy's case. It's possible, he said, that trespass legislation is being controvened here. He added he s not sure that this is a proper direction for tlie government to proceed, however. Dr. Warrack said a litter act will be introduced at the next session of the legislature. In introducing the new act, the government will repeal an amendment which restricts camping on public lands for more than 30 days without a permit. This discriminated in the way it affected people, he said. The new act will apply equally to all, but will protect public land and property from objectionable within a lew weeks. Mr. Sharp- said mulli-uaticjnal corporations must be ready to tailor their operations to local conditions, foe a] sensitivities and local needs. Many corporations had become sophisticated in these matters. "But many yet to grasp tlie basic implications of multi-nationality, continuing to be more irnperialistie than international and treating their foreign operations as colonial outposts of the home office." In Canada, there had been a sharp local reaction to multi-national corporations' short-sightedness in sensitive areas such as local language, local cultural patterns, air and water pollution and plant location. "Opportunity ior advance-tnent to the liighest level for locally-recruiled staff is an obvious necessity, as is participation as a corporate citizen in the social and cultural life of the local community. "Perhaps less obvious is the need to rid management of branch plant mentality and a tendency lo see everything in lerms of Ihe parent-subsidiary Weather ann SUNRISE SATURDAY SUNSET 11 L Pre Lethbridge 10 .03 Pincher Creek 17 -8 Medicine Hat 5 -I .02 Edmonton 8 -9 T 11 road report FORECAST: Lethbridgn.

Radio technicians walked oil their jobs in the afternoon and those connected with the television delay centre quit work a few hours later. The picketing occurred in the evening and a spokesman said it would likely resume today. The strike affected 33 technicians but announcers, who interpret their contracts as not requiring them to work with nonunion men operating the equipment, also refused to work.
