Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 16, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Thuriday, 16, THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Cabinet mulls pay cut TORONTO (CP) Ontario cabinet ministers were asked Wednesday to take a five-per- cent cut in pay to show lead- ership in the fight against spi- ralling inflation, Eric Winkler, chairman of management board of cabinet, said in an interview. Mr. Winkler, who made the proposal to "a dozen" ministers attending a marathon session, said none' voiced objections, including 'Premier William Davis. However, he said the 26- member cabinet will again be asked to consider the sugges- tion when it next meets Jan. 22 in London, Ont. Cabinet ministers with portfolios now receive annually. There is ah accom- modation allowance of up to for those living outside Metropolitan Toronto. Ministers without portfolio are paid and ac- commodation expenses. Pre- mier Davis's salary is and ordinary MPPs are paid Mr. Winkler said considera- tion might be given to pay cuts for all MPPs depending on the outcome of the cabinet's deci- sion. Members of Parliament in Ottawa sought a 50-per-cent pay increase last December but backed down in the face of public furore. A second recommendation for a 33-per-cent increase is expected to be dealt with when Parliament is called back Jan. 22. Mr. Winkler said he believes a belt-tightening by cabinet as a "symbolic" gesture "would be well received by business and in- dustry." Auto pact turns sour on Canada OTTAWA (CP) Later this month, the government will release figures that show a loss on automo- tive trade with the United States during 1974. Ten years after it was signed-on Jan. 16, 1965-this record deficit is one sign that the Canada-U.S. auto pact has turned sour for Canada. Trade officials expect the auto deficit will be about the same, or only moderately lower, in 1975. In recent months, both in- dustry and union groups have begun petitioning the govern- ment for a review of the trad- ing arrangement. The Automotive Parts Manufacturers' Association and the United Auto Workers union have each received sympathetic audiences, but no commitments, from Trade Minister Alastair Gillespie. Nonetheless, government officials say Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and President Gerald Ford, at their December meeting, agreed to high-level talks on the automotive industry, if not the trading pact itself! No talks have yet been held. Not all the problems in the auto industry, either in Canada or the U.S., arise from the provisions in the auto pact. -The markets and the U.S. jobless figures highest since 1937 political climate have chang- ed greatly since 1965, and that is hampering any moves toward a revision. Slumping U.S. auto sales in 1974 have idled more than industry employees and a spillover effect now is being felt in Canada, where about employees are on layoff: About 70 per cent of Canadian production goes into the U.S. market. Trade department sources point out that this is hardly a politically ripe time, for either country, to start give- and-take bargaining on the auto pact. Canada has benefitted over- all from the auto pact but the safeguards for continued capital investment and parity in consumer prices no longer are being met. When the agreement was signed in 1965, Canada had a WASHINGTON (AP) More Americans collected un- employment cheques Christ- mas week than at any time since the government began paying jobless benefits in 1937, the labor department said Wednesday. The department reported that persons collected unemployment che- ques that week, an increase of more than over the previous week. The unemployment rate for those covered by unemploy- ment insurance increased from five to six per cent, the highest rate since March 1963. A year earlier, the rate was 3.5 per cent when Americans received jobless benefits. In addition to those already receiving unemployment in- surance, another per- sons unable to find jobs filed initial claims for jobless benefits during the week end- ed Jan. 4, a decrease of from the previous week's number of initial claims.

E3B 4X1 major balance of payments problem with the U.S. This was caused in large part by a deficit in auto trade and Canada sought a larger share of the North American market. Built into the agreement were a series of safeguards that, basically, were designed to ensure auto production in Canada would be kept at high levels by the Big Three automakers and they would make continuing capital investment in plant and equip- ment in Canada. The Canadian auto industry went from a billion busi- ness in 1965 to a billion business last year. And from a million auto trade deficit in 1965, Canada moved gradually to a surplus by 1970. The deficits resumed in 1973 and are likely to continue for some years. Between 1965 and 1973, there was a 10-per-cent real growth yearly in Canadian auto production, while domestic auto sales grew at an annual rate of only about four per cent, government of- ficials say. But problems arose because the U.S. automakers effec- tively ignored the pact's Cana- dian safeguards. New capital investment dropped from an average million annually between 1965 and 1970 to about million for the next three years through 1973. And while the difference between U.S. and Canadian car prices moved from 16 per cent higher fac- tory wholesale in Canada in 1965 to 6.5 per cent in the current model year, they have never reached parity in the two markets as had been foreseen.

Foster's powers too great CALGARY (CP) The University of Calgary senate task force on legislative review says Advanced Educa- tion Minister Jim Foster should surrender his powers to regulate academic programs. The task force, which was asked by the government to recommend changes in the Universities Act, wants the minister's authority limited to financial matters. Under the existing act, any new program, school or faculty, service or facility must be approved by the minister. The task force report, approved by the board of governors, recommends that approval, assessment and co ordination of academic programs become the respon- sibility of an Alberta council of universities that would make recommendations to the minister. This council, representing the four universities in the province, would also advice the minister regarding prin- ciples for operating grant for- mulas, capital development programs and "other matters affecting the universities."
