Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THI LITHMIDOI HIM ID _ J.nuory II, Imported sugar price hiked by world group LONDON (CP) Canadian Importers will have to pay more for their free work] sugar pur- chases under an agreement reached here, but sources tty the new deal is the best possible under current The International Sugar Or- Municipality vote by Indians fails CAPE MUDGE, B.C. (CP) Indian leaders wen stunned Monday night wheo a referen- dum narrowly failed to clear the way for this Indian reserve on toe southwest Up of Quadra Island, about 100 miles north- west of Vancouver, to become the first Indian municipality in Canada. Women burst Into tears an ran from the reserve band coun tij office when it became appar ent that the necessary 75-per cent majority could not be reached. The per cent in favor of incorporation under a federally- and provineially-ap- proved a shock to band chief Lawrence Lewis, who vowed he would quit, Of the 101 eligible voters, 91 went to the polls at Cape Mudge and the Quinsam Reserve in Campbell River, on Vancouver Island. Sixty-five voted in favor of in- corporation and 23 against, with no spoiled ballots. A switch of four negative votes to yes would have passed the referendum. Municipal Affairs Minister Dan Campbell, who was sur- prised by the defeat, said he will recommend to the B.C. leg- islature that a 60-per-cent "yes" vote be enough for Indian re- serves to become municipalities ta tha future. Chief Lewis said In consi- dered the defeat a vote of non- confldeDee and he would resign "as soon as I can put it in writ- which he said would prob- ably be today. Basically, the plan meant tha the Indian Act superceded all provisions of the Municipal Act LIST BENEFITS Some of the for the band under the agreement were: grant to the municipality like that given to all other B.C. municipalities of 530 a person; to the government's home acquisition grant of for each new home and for an old home; right to 'issue municipal xnds, although In this case they would be backed by the federal government; ability to levy-taxes for both general and school pur- poses, although only non-band memben would pay the school tax; -The right to set and register bylaws and zone reserve land accordmg to the Municipal Act; -The establishment of a mu- nicipal council with i mayor and four aldermen, one of whom may be a non-Indian; financial responsibilities or welfare and police. The biggest concession the >and would have received is that It would lose none of Its rlvileges under the Indian Act ganlzation, which ended a five- day executive committee meet- ing Monday, decided to raise the maximum price at which member producing countries supply traditional The new maximum to Import- ers will be 6.M oenti a pound compared'with f.S centi agreed to In a live-year contract signed in 1968. At least part of the in- crease Is likely to be passed on to consumers. Sugar producen, from Aus- tralia to South Africa, argued that the price.had to be in- creased to compensate for the recent United States devalu lion of the dollar which makes 6.5 centi worth lew than It wed to be. Canada imports about one million pounds of sugar eacr year from producing countries covered by the agreement, SOME WANTED MORE A Canadian source said tart :oday some producers argued hat the price should increase by about the same amount tha sterling has Increased In rela ion to the dollar since tton, ThU would have meant a rise to about 7.6 cents a pound lie free market rate in New York is roughly 7.5. Moat producen, however, pressed for an increase to aboui seven per cent.' Canada and Japan, major Im- porters under the 1968 agree- ment, argued that the maxi- mum should be held to e.S cents. But sources uld 6.3 was just 'a bargaining figure; we didn't expect to get it." Sources said both Canada and Japan were determined to stim- ulate more sugar production, and replenishment of the de- pleted stocks would help accom- plish this. It was essential to head off any attempt ta restrict produc- tion artifically and thus put fur- ther upward pressuM on pricei. Minimum stocks are available to all member importers. WORLD PRICES RISING World have been in- creasing sharply recently with consumption outpacing availa- ble supplies. Om reason for this has been crop failures because of bad weather conditions in some producing anas Under the 1961 agreement, the sugar organization's executive has discretionary nowers to re- lease reserve, held by produc- ing countries when the world print starts to increase because of heavy demand. As ]on( as the world price stays below toe fixed maximum, importers pay only the market price. The executive decided against releasing reserves late last year as the world price edged up believing that it would settle down quickly. When the price reached more than 7.5 cents last week, the executive finally released its AFRICANS PROTKT SITTLEMINT An army officer, centre, armed with a sub- machine gun, end Rhodnlan police fact hundred, of [wring demonitratort in Gwelo, Rhodesia, Monday Africans the Brltiih-Rhodtilan agreement.

VANCOUVER (CP) Exter- nal Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp said Monday night the government wants to reduce ttae proportion of Canadian exports which goes to the United States market. He told the Vancouver board of trade the Trudetu admlrus- tration is seeking maxhnum diversification of export bade. This would reduce Canada's vulnerability to "the vicissi- tudes of the American market and to changes in American economic policy." Mr. Sharp was dearly refer- ring in his address to the 10- percent import surcharge im- posed by the U.S. last October. It remained in force for four months while Washington nego- tiated a major realignment of world currencies to improve the U.S. balance-of-payments peti- tion. The minister said: "In our trading world, the United States no longer enjoys an unchal- lenged position of leadership. It remains the most powerful eco- nomic unit in the world but It is challenged to the East by the Common Market, to the West by Japan. "Every Canadian should pray every morning and evening thai the U.S. economy will continue to prosper. So closely are we tied together that we will thrive together or suffer together. "There was a time last year wheu we thought that the Amer- icans were trying to disengage from us. Fortunately, that threat seems to hive receded." At present the U.S. takes about 6! per cent of Canada's exports, Mr. Sharp noted. "We are very glad that they do but we must ask ourselves whether, for a country deter- mined to remain free and to manage its own domestic econ- omy, we have taken full advan- tage of the potentialities of other growing, markets." In pursuing greater dlvereifi- catkn the gbveiiuueut was not seeking to reduce "by one cent" the dollar vatae of Canadian ex- ports to the U.S, LOOK TOOTHERS "Indeed hope It will con- tinue to grow. What the govern- ment is after-I suggest in the national interest and tht inter- est of ttae trading community- Is a faster rate of increeee to our exports to the rest of the world." In this way the percentage going to the U.S. could be "at kast stabilized and better still Natural gas prices meet supported CALGARY (CP) A hear- ing into natural gas field prices would be "significant" to both the province and Alberta's gas producers, the Independent Pe- troleum Association of Canada said Monday. "It is certainly apparent the present wellhead price for nat- ural gas Is unreauatlcally low when compared with alterna- tive fuel said G. W. (Sfcotty) Cameron, association genera] manager. He said in a news release a 'full and open" discussion could help lead to the develop- ment of a "fsdr and realistic price for this premium fuel." He was commenting on Pre- mier Peter Lougheed's earlier statement saying the province has asked the Energy Re- sources Conservation Board to hold a special hearing Into nst- ural gag field prices. Alberta may exhibit cattle in Peking EDMONTON (CP) There fa a strong possibility that beef and dairy cattle breeding stock and swine breeding stock mil be exhibited by Alberta live- stock associations' at a Cana- dian trade fair scheduled for next August In Peking, Harry Hargrave said Monday. Mr. Hargrave, Alberta's mar- keting commissioner, said there "will be many Alberta prod- ucts displayed at the fair" Which is expected to be attend, ed by buyers from China. "It will provide Canada with an attractive trade potential becked up by the needs of 750 million Mr.Hargrave Mid in a news release. The federal government Is as- suming responsibility for the fair which ends Jfcpt 2 and the Canadian product, win be shipped to Chun in April. A recent briefing held in Cal- gary by the federal industry department ouojiang- details of the fair hud "excellent repre- sentation from he said. somewhat over a pe- riod of years. Mr. Sharp urged businessmen to keep and develop their U.S. markets. "Nowhere on earth is there a market or an aggregation of markets for Canadian goods that can replace the United States." At the same rime he acted them to extend their trading and financial horizons, as the government had extended its political horizons. He dismissed the idea of Canada joining ta a common market with the U.S., arguing that such a course would "take us from interde- pendence to utter dependency in a very short time." Overseas publicity of parks rapped TORONTO (CP) The ni UcfMl parks of Banff and Jaspe In Alberta shouldn't be the tub jecta of infective overseas putt licity campaigns, the Nations and Provincial Parks Associa Socred MLA raps strike action use CALGARY (CP) Strike action at a bargaining tool Is antiquated and not in the best interests of employees or man- agement, says Hoy Wilson, Al berta Social Credit MLA. The of strikes and kick, outs are "damaging to the Da- tum as a he said, and situation which causes in- onvenienct and hardships to dispute. In a civilized nation, It does not seem logical that individual velihood and trade and com- merce be halted to resolve mployroent contracts." The Calgary Bow represent- tive said in a news release ilonday thet federal-provincial abor reform is "urgently re- quired" to resolve strikes or ockouts. "Development of a modem formula mutt be regarded s an emergency measure and receive top priority from pro- vincial and federal govern- ments." Don of Canada said Monday. "The popular areas' of both parks are already overcrowded and association president J. 6. Nelson said in a letter to Jean Chretien, minister of Indian affairs and northern development. Tbt! letter refers to films on the parks shown in Japan aa part of Alberta-British Colum- bia travel promotion hi that country, specifically aimed at skiers. "It is impossible to preserve [he natural values of our na- tional parks and make them into international holiday play- grounds at the same Mr. Nelson said in the letter. "We appeal to you at the present guardian and custodian of this heritage to exercise your luthority and persuade the Al berta, federal and B.C. govern- ment travel agencies, Air Can- ada and CP Air to abstain from Kiblicizing our Rocky Mountain national parks In a way which can only lead to a continually growing demand for winter Sports facilities and the major esort developments associated with the letter said. Copies of the 'etter were sent to Premier Peter Lougheed of Jberta and the presidents of CP Jr and Air Canada. U.S. budget Monday WASHINGTON (Reuter) President Nixon will submit the new United States budget o Congress next Monday, the Vhite House reported. Weather and road report Mr. Sharp rejected allegations that Canada's Increasingly close TwlqfinitB i relations with the Soviet Union and its support for mainland China's entry into the United Nations last year represent moves toward anti-American- ism. In the last few years, Canada had broadened its contacts with many different areas of the world. "Diversification of relations does not imply disengagement from our community of interest with the United States. What we are doing is to avoid drifting into total dependency upon Hie United Slates by suita- ble domestic policies and by de- veloping closer and more effec- tive relationships with other countries."
