Inflation, oil security cloud Canadian trading TORONTO (CP) Schools reopen in Ontario today following the Christmas break with memories of the December controversy over emergency Bill 274 still fresh among the province's teachers. Their leaders are girding to fight the Conservative govern- ment over Bill 275 which would limit bargaining weapons of the teachers in future contract negotiations. It was held up by the government at the same time as Bill 274, a temporary move intended to prevent mass resignations from taking effect today by teachers in 16 school districts where contracts were in dispute. The emergency bill provok- ed bitter debate in the legislature, a one-day classroom boycott Dec. 16 by most teachers and a mass demonstration by about in front of the legislature building the same day. A compromise was reached. Premier William Davis and Education Minister Thomas Wells agreed to hold up passage of Bill 274. In return, the teachers' leaders agreed to recommend that members in the 16 dis- puted districts extend the effective date of their resignations to Jan. 31. Meanwhile, efforts would be made, either by negotiation or 'mediation, to reach agreements. The Jan. 31 date was accented in 15 districts but high school teachers in Essex, near Windsor, refused. .They since have worked out a ten- tative contract. Leaders of the teachers and representatives of school trustees in the province are scheduled to meet with Education Minister Wells Jan. 22 to discuss Bill 275. OTTAWA (CP) Rising world inflation, oil shortages and persisting international monetary troubles have cloud- ed the trade department's crystal ball, but Trade Minister Alastair Gillespie predicts 1974 will be a good year for exports. While hedging his bets on next year, Mr. Gillespie con- fidently forecasts record trade for 1973. The trade sur- plus in the first 10 months of 1973 was already exceeding the total surplus" of 1972, al- though fourth-quarter exorts and imports had not yet been calculated. But the future is murky. In- flation at home could price some industries out of com- petition in foreign markets. However, other countries are also suffering price prob- lems, and Mr. Gillespie says Canada's economic perform- ance should keep exporters in business. 'Oil shortages could have a depressing effect on custom- ers for Canadian raw mate- rials in the United States, Eu- rope and Japan. Plant shut- downs mean less demand for Canadian goods. On the other hand, Ontario Premier William Davis has suggested that because Cana- dian firms have relatively abundant fuel supplies, at cheap prices compared to for- eign energy-users, they enjoy a trading advantage in a fuel crisis. That applies especially to manufacturers competing abroad. In any case, says Mr. Gil- lespie, "the oil crisis has created uncertainties which I think will translate them- selves into a lower level of in foreign economies' and perhaps in this country. Continued uncertainty in world money markets is an- other inhibiting factor. The International Monetary Fund still is trying to work out a new system of adjusting ex- change rates and keeping in- ternational currency flows in balance. Meantime, Canada has won benefits from exchange-rate changes in the last two years Like the U.S. dollar, the Ca- nadian dollar has fallen in value relative to European and Japanese currencies, making Canadian goods less expensive and easier to sell in foreign markets. That seems to have helped Canada turn former deficits into surpluses in trade with the European Economic Com- munity and Japan. Trade with largest customer after the United moved from a deficit to a surplus since Britain joined the EEC last Jan. 1. That may belie the most pessimistic views of the trade impact of Britain's entry into the EEC and the loss of low Commonwealth tariff preferences. Although the government continues to try to reduce vul- nerability to the U.S. econ- omy, U.S. customers still were supplying of every received from Canadian sales to the world in the first nine months of 1973. SURPLUS FALLING The trade surplus with the United States has been falling in 1973 because the growth of imports from the United States has exceeded the growth of exports. This shift was largely due to a reversal of the Canadian surplus to a deficit in trade under the U.S.-Canada auto pact. WASHINGTON (CP) The Canadian embassy, in an ef- fort to combat a growing tendency to regard Canadians as "North American has published a four-page special report outlining the Canadian energy policy. More than copies have been printed and sent to senators, congressmen, con- gressional and senatorial committees and their staffs and to "academics and news people anyone we felt would be interested." An embassy official said Wednesday "there has been misunderstanding or mis- interpretation of Canadian policy in some parts" of the United States. "It's such a big issue that we can't leave it to chance to explain what we are doing and .why." Publication of the special report follows a recent Ot- tawa announcement of a proposed increase to from in crude-oil export taxes. There has been no official U.S. reaction to the announce- ment beyond the statement that top U.S. and Canadian energy chiefs will meet in about a month to discuss the entire energy picture. THINGS GET TOUGH Unofficially, Canadians have been taking a beating on the cocktail-party circuit where such statements have been heard as "you guys are nothing more than North American Arabs." The proposed export tax "raised a number of ques- tions and some explanation had to be made that Canada was not engaged in flagrant the embassy of- ficial said. He stressed that the four- page summary was not designed to be a regular publication, but said it could become "the forerunner of other position reports a vehicle for the dissemination of Canadian policy decisions as needed." The embassy official said it's easy for Canada to be mis- understood all over the country.' "The experts know what Canada is doing and why, but the population, even officials who are not experts in the energy field, may not. Any congressmen may sense un- happiness among their con- stituents." TRUDEAU QUOTED The report opens with a quo- tation from Prime Minister Trudeau's Nov. 22, 1973, speech: By increasing Cana- dian production, we have been able to respond to our neighbor's United States needs while at the same time meeting our first respon- sibility, which is to ensure basic fuel requirements for Canadians. "Consistent with that responsibility, the govern- ment policy is and will con- tinue to be to supply the U.S. from domestic oil production with all the help we possibly can. We are friends, and friends care about each other's problems." It outlines Canadian energy policy in general, the U.S.- Canada oil trade, the Cana- dian export tax and other energy matters. Copies will be sent to Cana- dian consulates all over the U.S. Sydney squatters fight development SYDNEY, Australia (Reuter) More than 40 squatters fighting a proposed redevelopment project were arrested today after a pitched battle with police and development-company em- ployees.
