Conservatives get comfort in Trudeau throne speech tL OTTAWA (CP) The Con- servatives got at least a shred of temporary comfort out of Prime Minister Trudeau's speech in the Commons last Fri- day. They have been worried that Mi'. Trudeau might take off on an anti-American theme in the coming election campaign and make it the prime issue. One Conservative MP said: "You just can't fight that kind of thing. It's hopeless. "If you come out against anti-Americanism you are auto- matically labelled an American apologist and all the young vot- ers, at least IR-year-olds who vote hi the next election will tlunk you are in favor of the Vietnam war, nuclear testing and all the rest of it." In the Commons. Mr. Trudeau brought up the subject of rela- tions with the U.S. He said his government has been tough in trade talks with the U.S. and will continue to be tough. Some Conservatives glanced at each other nervously. RELATIONS FRIENDLY But in practically the next breath, Mr. Trudeau said the U.S. respects Canada because the government stands up for Canadian interests and that re- lations between the two coun- tries have never been friendlier. That didn't smack of anti- Americanism. On Jan. 9, Mr. Trudeau said: "I'm against economic national- ism if Us effect is to make a country poor. I don't think you can become more independent by becoming poorer." Earlier, the prime minister said a lot of Canadians were losing interest in economic na- tionalism because they could see that restrictions on foreign capital could cost jobs. Mr. Trudeau in a Jan. 9 inter- view listed what he considered would be the election issues. They would be "industrial growth and industrial policy, the problem of foreign owner- ship and exploitation of our re- sources and development of our manufacturing industries." All these involve relations with the U.S. to some greater or lesser degree. But. Mr. Trudeau's statement then does not give any hint of anti-Americanism. He has always discussed Can- ada-U.S. relations in the terms of a problem which has always existed. The prime minister usually reads his Commons speeches in a dreary monotone. But on Friday he put consid- erable animation into his 35- minute speech and made a spir- ited attack on the opposition parties chiefly for failing, in bis view, to enunciate clear policies of their own. For their part, the opposition spokesmen pointed to what they saw as government failings, es- pecially in the economic field. Conservative Leader Robert Slanfield, NDP Leader David Lewis and Gerard Laprise of Abitibi, filling in for Heal Caouctte, Social Credit leader, all indicated they regard prime election issues as the economy and high unemployment. To Mr. Stanfield, one of the chief failings has been the non- appearance so far of the gov- ernment's promised foreign ownership policy. And Mr. Lewis suggested that the policy will never be enunci- ated before the election. It appears that the broad elec- ies 111 the news lion issues have been sketched and that foreign ownership policy will be one whether or not it is announced by the gov- ernment. VANCOUVER (CP) David Anderson, Liberal MP for Es- quimalt-Sannieh, says he thinks the United States Court of Ap- peal will rule soon that Cana- dians may take part in a court case aimed at blocking the proposed west coast pipeline- tanker route for Alaskan oil. Mr. Anderson said in a speech at the University of British Columbia the appeal court, in Washington, D.C., is expected to hear arguments in about two weeks from lawyers representing him and the Ot- tawa based Canadian Wildlife Federation. Mr. Anderson and the feder- ation filed suit in November in an attempt lo join U.S. envi- 1 ronmenlal groups seeking in- junctions against the construc- lion of an 800-mile pipeline from Alaska's oil rich north slope to the Port of Valdez. U.S. Wilder- ness Society, Friends of the Earth ar.d the Environmental Defence Fund want to pre- vent a start on the project until full studies have been done on its environmental ef- fects. Mr. Anderson and the wild- life federation say Canadian views should also be heard be- cause of the danger to the B.C. coast of oil spills from tankers moving the oil from Valdez to U.S. refineries. A U.S. district court judge rejected the Canadian petilion to intervene in December. But Mr. Anderson said he expects to win a hearing from the court of appeal because of the court's record on ecological issues. He said that if the unprecedented attempt by Canadians to argue a suit in American courts fails in the appeal court, the case would be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court if an early hearing were granted. Otherwise, be and the Cana-cian Wildlife Federation would turn over their material to the U.S. environmental groups already in court. "Even if we lose, if the lawsuits fail, which is possible, we'll have accomplished of construction until at least April, which is just about the end of the- construction season in Alaska. "And the closer it gets to tne time of the U.S. presidential election, the less likely it becomes that the pipeline will go ahead." Mr. Anderson said he thinks it is unlikely President Nixon v.'anl lo lose the environmental vote by lolling the pipeline go ahead just before an V k i Hat ARMSTRONG APPREHEND are police handouts of Karelc when arrested by the RCMP in T ed by the FBI in a fatal concin campus in August, K7C Alberta supper EDMONTON (CP) The Albsrta government will sun-port a request that Churchill, Man., be tieve'oped as a main western seaport.
