Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAIO Wcilnculny Fubruniy 9, THE EYES HAVE IT U.S. senator William Proxmire removes his regular glasses and cpores to put on sunglasses lo hide his black eyes, Proxmire, who is chairman of the in) Economic Commillee, refused commenl when asked about his black eyes. Stanfield may ignore V (J two fuzzy resolutions MucI.EOI) OTTAWA id') tive leader Robert Slanfield is reported willing In ignore fuzzy Mjif-ddri miration resolu- tions approved by the Ins. pally convention Cut tVre are so me fears within the parly that nt? apain lorccd inlo compli- cated campaign explanations about Ollav.a-Quehec relations in the clccuon widely expected tliis year. That Ihe casi1 fur the deux naiiwi.s rfsoluljojis lhat preceded the iDffl campaicn. This policy rf two nation? was sold to the Conservatives hv Marcel Fanbaull as the way to woo Quei-LT support, on Uie. premise thai the phrase meant two founding peoples, not states. At Ihe Conservative Decem- ber policy ccnvonlion sults of the voting were issued last delegates gave approval lo two resolutions ccmc, vaguely, under the head- ing of self-determination. Tlicy were miroctiiccct to a committee workshop by Martial Asselin. Quebec MP, and the tliscussiori indicated that most participants viewed thorn in relation to self- determinalinn for provinces. But il ;uis never clear how they vere viewed by the full convent ion which approved Hiem. 60 PKR CEM APPHOVi: In any event there were 60 per cent in favor, and only .seven per cent opposed, to a resolution staling: "The princi- ple of the choice for his future must belong to persons living TI their collective and respective cnvironmenL" And '14 per cent supported, and 22 per cent opposed, this resolution1 "In the case where a collectivity wants to choose a I nolilical orientation different j from the one now existing, the (federal government should never force lo fight these political change? which are democratically accepted." .Vast of the vi.'ling delegates did not hear any for environment or collectivity. But there was no douhi that most QuohcH1 delegates regarded the resolutions as approval for self- determination 1) y provinces without the fear nf federal One liighh-placed Conserva- live says it coukl also be argued (hat a collectivity includes a j northern inlet, an Indian reser- luii'a! park. .Mr. Si airfield is r.ol oijhced lo I accept any of the decisions of the delegates on the 370 resolu- tions. They were designed oniy (o gather parly opinion for the guidance of the parliamentary caucus. But this won't prevent any candidate from pointing out lhat there was overwhelming party support for a self-determination i resolution. With 11-0 fuzzy wording of j these resolutions at Uie disposal j of candidates, party officials ac- I knowledge there are almost un- limited opportunities squab- i blcs over semantics. Party officials say every ef- fort made to avoid an- other dcu.x nations campaign but agree that, at the moment, some dangers do exist. Canada hopes to smooth trade irritants lly CAUL MOIJ.INS OTTAWA (CIJ) The govern- ment hopes lhat a promise to negotiate in future for a new United Slates-Canada auto trade pact and a immediate chaiific.s in trade rules will he enough lo satisfy Washington's six-month-old demand for trade concessions. The Canadian cabinet believe.; H has an ally in congressional pressure on the U.S. administra- tion to announce some kind of deal (his month on Vo-cnl'cd trade irrilant> between the. U.S. and ils main trading partners- Canada, Japan and Europe. U.S. negotiators havii been preoccupied similar trade talks with European Common Market officials. Canadian au- thorities were wailing this week for the final word I', oni ington on the proposed U.S.- Canada seltleincnt. Main feature of the Canadian proposal is a promise to negoti- ate basic changes in the pact on U.S.-Canada trade in automobiles and parts. otich negotiations, Ottawa of- ficials say, could take tv.o or three years. Thus, the most politically visi- ble point of dispute in U.S.-Can- ada trade relations would be effectively sidetracked during an election year, A federal elec- tion is expected in Canada this year and the U.S. presidential election is in November. In addition to the promise to renegotiate the terais of auto trade, Canada has offered other items lo Washington immedi- ately. WOULD UP They include easier access lo Canada for U.S. defence equip- ment and more jiencrnis duty- free allowances for Canadian travellers bringing goods hack from the U.S. Canada would also permit free entry for U.S.-made dune- buggy-type vehicles in return foi (he existing duty-free treat- ment of Canadian snowmobiles inlo (he U.S. To avoid the impression at home that the deal consists en- tirely 01 one-sided concessions, Canada wants an agreement to include promises by Washington lo ease some importing prac- tices that Ottawa finds irritat- ing. Washington therefore is being asked to review tariffs applying lo some Canadian farm imple- ments, offer more lenient cus- toms treatment for sonic au'o parts and review oilier trade practices thai lend lo limit Ca- nadian imports. Ottawa has abandoned hope of gelling Washington to agree al the moment to a long-standing request Lo permit sales of Cana- dian uranium in the U.S The proposed new a uto-pa c t negotiations would differ, in Canada's view, Liu, spo- radic talks that have beuii under way on U.S. initiative since 19G9. The fruitless talks of the last two )'cars, Canadian officials say, dealt ivitli the way the trade was working under the rules laid down in 1965, ACCEPTS U.S. VIT.W In those lalks, Canada rcluc- (anlly came around lo accept the U.y. view thai features de- signed lo assure Canada a mea- sure of lotol Norlli American auto production were tempo- rary. The safeRitard mum production vaJucs long since exceeded hy Canada- would lie fallow while a new pact was discussed. In the face of U.S. pressure for genuine free ting any Canadian import a car from the lias insisted that its tariff against privately imported cars is a permanent feature of the 1905 pact. Now, however, Canada has of- fered to renegotiate the funda- mental terms of auto trade, re- placing the 19G5 pact with a new agreement if necessary. The offer does not include an outright promise to permit free trade, a move tlial Canadian au- thorities have argued would swamp the domestic market and set back Canadian produc- tion without some new system of safeguards to protect the smaller partner in the deal. Tlie Canadian offer is de- signed lo meet a U.S. complaint thai MK 1965 agreement has op- erated lopsidedly in Canada's favor, aggravating deterioration of (he U.S. trade balance. At the same lime, Hie offer conforms to 01 lawn's insistence that it. would nol negotiate under the duress of a deadline. ordered GRAND R PRAIRIE fCP) A judicial recount of ballots casl in llic 1371 Grande Prairie county election was ordered Tuesday by District Court Judge S.
