We should probably mention that expenses for any work done to improve the property before sale, or mortgage penalty when the mortgage is paid off before maturity, or any loss incurred on a sale are not included in moving expenses.

The tankers would have to sail through this passage to reach a deepwater harbor at Eastport, the site of a large oil refinery proposed by the Pittston Co. of New York. The Maine board of environ- mental protection is schedul- ed to announce on March 12 whether Pittston can build the refinery. Canada has formally pro- tested the plan, citing the dan- ger of an oil spill. Transport Minister Jean Marchand was quoted Friday as saying that it is "conceiv- able" that Canada will bar tankers from Head Harbor Passage, and that an order to this effect under the Canada Shipping Act has been written but not signed. He said Canada had to consider whether such an order would "offend'the The state department issued its statement after being ask- ed whether the U.S. would be offended.

"We note pursuant to the 1958 Geneva Convention the U.S. has the right of innocent passage through the waters of Head Harbor Passage." The 1958 Geneva Convention on the Law of the Sea granted the right of "innocent passage" to foreign ships which have to cross territorial waters in order to reach the high seas. Eastport lies within U.S. waters, but to reach it from the high this case the international waters of the Atlantic Ocean-a ship has to cross through Canadian waters. The crucial section of the route lies through the six- mile-long Head Harbor Passage between Deer Island, N.B. and Campobello Island, site of the Roosevelt in- ternational park. At its narrowest point the passage is about 250 feet wide. The Pittston plan-envisages tankers of tons going through these waters to reach Eastport. Law of the sea experts say that a ship's passage is consid- ered "innocent" so long as it is not prejudicial to peace, good order or security of the state through whose waters it travels. They also say that ships may stop or anchor if such ac- tion is incidental to normal operations.
