Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Canada crashes big Soviet market MOSCOW (Reuter) - Ai major development in Canadian-Soviet relations takes place here this week when ministers of the two countries sign a new co-operative agreement. The sealing of the accord, on co-operation in the industrial application of science and technology, will give Canada a chance to gain a foothold on the big Soviet market. The agreement, the first of its kind between Canada and a Communist country, represents the latest fruit of increased activity on political and diplomatic fronts between Canada and Communist nations. The signing of the agreement will be the high point of an eight-day visit to the Soviet Union, beginning today, by Jean-Luc Pepin, Canadian industry, trade and commerce minister. Full details of the agreement have yet to be disclosed, but Ca nadian sources see it as a first step towards promoting exports and industrial liaison. They say the two countries have many similarities in geography and climate and that both are keen to exploit the resources of their northern tundra and river lands. Canada, for its part, will be seeking new outlets for its equipment for pulp and paper industries and hydroelectric power projects, as well as for specialized construction equipment. Canadian officials admit, however, that Soviet experts have something to tell even Canada on the building of multi-storey structures on perriia-frost. Soviet work on tidal power stations and sea generators may also provoke Canadian interest. The high-powered Canadian delegation accompanying Pepin to Moscow will include senior government officials and leading industrialists, a reflection of the importance Ottawa attaches to the agreement. A mixed commission of Canadian and Soviet experts will be set up and will hold their first meeting the day after the official signing ceremony. It is to meet annually to explore areas of possible co-operation and industrial and scientific exchanges. Robert Gaynor, commercial counsellor at the Canadian embassy, said: "We are hopeful that one result will be to bring the potential of the Soviet market to the attention of Canadian industrialists." The agreement follows other developments in relations between Canada and the Communist countries. Canada and China announced the establishment of diplomatic relations last October. Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau will probably make his first visit to the Soviet Union in the spring. Last week, Canada and Russia signed their first fisheries agreement, aimed at settling differences over Pacific fishing rights. The new accord is expected to complement an existing 15- CANADIAN WOMEN'S FIGURE & REDUCING CLINICS NOW IN LETHBRIDGE Completely New Concept in Reducing Combining with what every doctor would itate for losing weight and reducing.

However, Canadian officials here do not expect this topic to be raised specifically during Pepin's talks. Pepin will also visit Leningrad during the visit. Free-trade area for poultry fails REGINA (CP) - A proposed free-trade area on the Prairies for poultry products has so far failed to take shape. Premier Ross Thatcher said here the proposal was formulated at the prairie economic council meeting last month but 'Alberta has shown little interest since then." The three prairie premiers had expressed  alarm over in-ter-provircial trade barriers and at their meeting in Winnipeg Dec. 18 they suggested a free-trade agreement be reached by Feb. 1. Mr. Thatcher said he had hoped the three provinces would lift trade restrictions by Feb. 1 "since it would have been a convincing gesture with which to approach next month's constitutional conference." "We certainly plan to bring It up there." The premiers blamed Quebec for starting trade restrictions, saying other provinces were forced to take similar steps to protect their producers. Alberta oil, gas revenue show hike EDMONTON (CP) - The Alberta government today reported total revenue from crown petroleum and natural gas rigits of $54.8 million in the fourth quarter of 1970. compared with $54.6 in the corresponding period of 1969.

Revenues from royalties on oil, gas and gas products increased to $35.1 million in the fourth quarter from $29.1 in the last quarter of 1969. Revenues from petroleum and natural gas rentals dropped to $13.8 million from $14.5 million. Sees revolt in Quebec QUEBEC (CP) - Jacques Larue-Langlois, a former CBC radio producer who faces trial next month on charges including seditious conspiracy, says Quebec is on the verge of falling under a fascist regime. He said it is unthinkable and unacceptable that "people are imprisoned for their ideas alone." Eventually the people of Quebec will revolt, he told a meeting of 1,000 persons here. The meeting was organized by the Movement for the Defence of Political Prisoners, protesting the detention of persons under the War Measures Act. Larue-Langlois is free on $5,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in a Montreal court Feb. 1 on the seditious conspiracy charge and with being or declaring himself to be a member of the outlawed Front de Liberation du Quebec. Also to appear with him are labor leader Michel Chartrand, author Pierre ValUeres, former teacher Charles Gagnon and lawyer Robert Lemieux, all of whom have been denied bail.
