HAMILTON l CD Interns tional Harvester of Canada Ltd. announced today it wil lay off MOO production WOT kcrs al its Hamilton plant for nine weeks beginning June 18. An initial layoff ol 200 men ts scheduled for April 1. Five hundred maintenance men and shippers out of a tola production staff of will re- main at the plant. An addiHona 200 will be laid off July 15, leav- ing a 300-man crew until the shutdown ends Aug. 21. The production stoppage wil con-espond with the firm's nual IFrday vacation shutdown which will be extended to allow additional maintenance, a com- pany spokesman said. The rest of the shutdown is due to a lack of orders, he said. Last year the plant was closed for 23 weeks, including a -hree-monlh shutdown and a engthy strike. Some Harvester workers at a meeting of the Hamilton and district labor council last week criticized the company and urged it to plan for year-round employment even though it might mean fewer full-time staff would be needed.

Friendship handshake for business Dy I'Al'L JACKSON Ill-raid Ottawa llurcaii (vrlniiily an increasing mnouiil of evi- dence around Ihcse elnys to sliow tlial tire Tniflrau iidmiii- istration now wants lo extend Ihe hand of friendship (o the nation's business c'oni.imniUy. However, whether Ihnl limirl is worth depend on whether the words of i'lic gov- ernment arc backed up by strong, firm actions. Business organizations sneli as Ihe Ca- nadian Chamber of Commerce nd the Canadian Mamif.ic- turcrs Association would wise fo continue to Inkr a hich- ly vocal and public- stand against government measures they consider harmful to Uu'ir tntcrests. First indication of a than- in government' business relations camo wilh the cabinet shuffle of some weeks ago. The Throne speech on tho opcninc of the fourth session of the. 28th Tar- liament offered more indica- tions that Uie government is trying to shake off Ihe. anti- business image It has picked up. I 'I'le Throne speech liilts of more co opcralion Iwtwecn business and govemment. It mentions the need for business lo be given the chance lo cre- ate more jobs for jobs not now available because government refused to lislen lo business in Uie first place. And it even lauds Ihe oil and gas industry for the role it has played in building up Canada. Those plaudils must have caused many Alberta oilmen In have a quiet chuckle behind their boardroom doors, Stressed the Throne speech: "A basic building block in tho growth of Canada's national wealth has liecn the perform- ance of our resource industries. Over the years they have open- ed up new frontiers and simu- lated the development of the sinews and muscles of Can- ada." There's lots more in Hie same 'They have accumulated capital for reinvestment, en- hanced the scientific and tech- nical skills of Canadians, and accounted for n healthy export surplus. A continuation and Scientists to visit Japan OTTAWA fCP) Science Minister Alastair GiUespie an- nounced Friday a 40-meniber mission will visit Japan nert month to explore ways to ex- pand relations in science and technology between the rwo countries. Similar missions had been sent in the last two years tn Belgium, West Germany and the Soviet Union. strengthening of government- industry relalions is necessary in order that such areas of challenge as environmental im- pact and the increasing de- mand both within Canada anil abroad for icsourccs and en- ergy he fully addressed." For executives of our energy and resource industries, who in the past year or so have started to Ihink they haven't' a single real friend in Ihe gov- ernment, some of those words must have been pretty hard lo swallow. Apart from looking on them with some reservation, the next move should he aimed at seeing thai the government does live up to them. SPIRIT LAUDED The Tin-one speech lauded the. entrepreneurial spirit of Canadians. Many of the na- tion's entrepreneurs and peo- ple who want to be entrepre- neurs will find these points re- freshing. Ever since the taxa- tion reform bill was intro- duced into the House of Com- mons there's been a feeling throughout the country that Ihe government didn't have too much appreciation for Ihe en- trepreneur. Dnl, no, [ho Throne speech didn't heat about Ihe hush (in Ihis point: "Our economy is de- pendent, as are the economics (if all industrialized countries, un the imagination of entrepre- neurs and their use of research and innovation, as well as upon a rational industrial strategy." The word 'rational' may cause (me to stop and think n bit, bill the rest of the mes- sage comas through very clear- ly. Entrepreneurs are wanted in Canada and the government wants to see them flourish. All things being equal then entre- preneurs can expect the gov- ernment will give tiiem the right framework In which to work. So, there it is. lion Bastard, v.ho gave business and Indus- try Ihe jitters wilh his new Competition Act, is no longer holding Ihe delicate portfolio of consumer and corporale af- fairs. Uryce who caused a gnashing of teeth with his controversial amendments to Ihe Labor Code, is no longer muusler of labor. And Ihe government has come out openly and praised business for the contribution it has made lo the Canadian way of life and even urged it to do more. The words are clear. Now, how about some actions from Ottawa to back them up?
