Independence for Quebec rejected RTMOUSKI, Que. (CP) The Rimouskd central council of the Confederation of National Trade Unions has rejected a CNTU do- cument advocating the political and economic independence of Quebec from the rest of North America.

Mr. St. Pierre said the exag- gerated Marxist content of the document would force the union to transform itself into a politi- cal party or the support of one, leading it into "an adventure that most members are not ready to set out on." The CNTU document, entitled Let's Rely On Our Own Means, has been endorsed by the CNTU executive but is still under study by CNTU union member- ship.

Mr. Trudeau said In a CBC interview televised Sunday night that critics of the liber- al's government's economic stance are looking at the past with its tremendous increase in foreign investment, and are dis- couraged at the prospect of hav- ing to buy back the economy. "Those that say we've got to buy back the past, you know, they just can't do It. It's too said Mr. Trudeau. "But those who are looking towards the future and looking Into the '70s and the last third of the century, last quarter of this cen- tury, it's not too late for them." "If we don't look back and don't get discouraged but look forward, I don't see why we can't do as well ac the Ameri- cans." However, the prime minister warned that Canadians cannot expect to be equal In all things and must learn la specialize in- dustrially. He said Canadians always as- sumed they were on safe eco- nomic grounds as long as they produced the same things as Americans. Meanwhile, the Jap- anese were busy specializing in electronics and Europeans In other areas are going forward, doing better than the Ameri- cans.

Mr. Trudeau said his govern- ment's economic critics should read some of the articles he wrote in the early 1950s fore- warning about the dangers of the invasion of foreign invest- ment. "I'm against economic nation- alism if Its effect Is to make a country poor. But I've also said I think thfs country has reached i trade-off situation where rt can pick and choose, and where it can at the time become more economically independent without becoming poor." The questions about economic nationalism produced 11 r o n g hints from the prime minister, that a foreign Investment screening agency will be part of the policy statement he prom- ised in a matter of "weeks, not months." agreed that such an agency would be in tine witt the government's record In this In reply to suggeittai that such an agency wouldn't really surprise Caradlua, Mr. Trudeau said: "I hope nothing will surprise honest Canadians, that anything the government will do will be seen as for the benefit of Can- ada." _____________ ALL WATER New Brunswick's eastern boundary is entirely water, made up of the Gulf of St. Law- rence and the Noi-lhumberknd Strait. 9th Annual 4 ONLY 1971 ADMIRAL 26 COLOR TV 6 ONLY 20" 1971 PHIICO B W TV SETS 1 ONLY GENERAL ELECTRIC 25" COLOR Auto.
