But neither side would predict Monday wtaen tbe bilateral talks since before Christ- resume. Ttay say the trade "irritants" that grew inflamed after Presi- dent Nixon imposed the U.S. im- port surcharge in August re- main. But negotiations on those Is- sues, which began in the fall, have been suspended while U.S. officials handle discussions with Japan and Western Europe. A U.S. embassy official said Washington wants to resume the Canadian discussions quickly, hopefully while the talks with other trading partners are still warm. UNDER LESS PRESSURE Ttere is some fear, be said, that with the removal of the surcharge Dec. 20, Canada will feel less pressure to pursue ne- gotiations on issues Washington would like to see settled. Those Include removal of the production safeguards that Can- ada enjoys under the U.S.-Can- ada auto pact, and a redress of the Canadian surplus under the defence production sharing ar- rangement. Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin confirmed Dec. 23 that the U.S. is seeking full free trade in the auto agreement, which so far has been limited to free trade at the manufac- turer level for most vehicles and the original parts going into them. Free trade for consumers, as sought by the U.S., would in- volve new and used vehicles and confront Canada with the prospects of a Hood of Amen- Heavy water mission OTTAWA (CP) Canadian officials will go to Moscow next month to negotiate the price and delivery schedule of 130 tons of heavy water (hat has been offered by the Soviet Union. Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. announced today that tbe heavy water, needed by an On- tario Hydroelectric Power Com- mission nuclear generating sta- tion, was offered for delivery between 1672 and 1974 by Techs- mbexport, the Soviet trading agency. Prime Minuter Trudeau men- tioned Canada's need for heavy water in talks with Soviet Pre- mier Alexei Kosygin when be visited Ottawa in October. Canada received 52 tons of heavy water from the Soviet Union last year. Heavy water is a constituent of the Canadian nuclear power system Its employment as a moderator 1 n Canadian-type CANDU power reactors enables the efficient use of natural ura- nium fuel. Canada is in short supply of the water and needs 500 tons for the third and fourth units of On- tario Hydro's Pickering gener- ating station near Toronto. The third unit is to go into operation this year and tbe fourth in 1973. The chief suppliers of heavy water for Canada has been the United States'. Canada's shortage of heavy water is caused by the failure of the heavy water plant at Glace Bay, N.S., to go into production on schedule. Atomic Energy has leased the plant from the Nova Scotia gov- ernment and it now is in the process of being reconstructed. The reconstruction will take about 214 years. Tories gear for spring election HALIFAX (CP) Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield says it would bo a sign of weakness if Prime Minister Trudeau doesn't call a June election. He told a news conference Tuesday the Progressive Con- servative party's contingency plans arc for a spring federal election. "I feel it's likely that their contingency plan has been In terms of a four-ycar-tcrm, a spring election in he said of the Liberals. "Tlioy can vary that of course, and they will vary It if they soc good reason to do it."
