Canadians accused of wrongdoings No successor to Canadians By STEPHEN SCOTT The Canadian Press SAIGON In less than a month the 200-member Canadian truce-observer contingent vacates South Viet- nam but so far no replacement has materialized. There is no strong sign that any country is ready to take over the job that Canada is abandoning be- cause of its frustrations and lack of effectiveness in observing tba South Vietnamese truce. A South Vietnamese source says the government has found one or two countries willing to become the fourth member of the International Commission of Con- trql and Supervision, to serve with Hungary, Poland and Indonesia. He said the other three parties in the Vietnam war the United States, the Viet Cong's Provisional Revolutionary Government and North Vietnam must consider these offers. But sources who keep an interested eye on the ftearch for a possible replacement say they know of no country with the qualifications for the job which has indicated willingness to take over the spot the Can- adians will vacate July 3L SKEPTICS REMAIN Canadians say they are having a hard time con- vincing some officials both in government and with- in the IOCS that they really are leaving and win not change their mods. The skepticism remains despite such flat statements as "We are leaving July tittered with emphasis by Vernon Tomer, deputy Canadian delegation leader, in a local interview Tuesday. The Canadians have not made the search for a replacement easy because of their continuing "open- mouth policy" of saying what they think. It is writ known that Canada considers that the Polish and Hun- garian delegations are frustrating the work of the com- mission and are acting on behalf of the PRG. The attitude of the two Communist countries has put Canada in the position of appearing to take he side of the South Vietnamese in many cases, although Can- ada stoutly maintains that it is neutral in all its actions. No doubt the detention of two Canadian officers by the Viet Cong near Cam Tarn, 35 mites from Saigon, may also make any possible successor stop and think. Meanwhile, Canadians are expressing some anxi- ety about the fate of ihe smooth-working ICCS machine that is largely the product of their endeavors. Some Canadians say representatives of a possible successor should be here now learning the rtpes. Others say to take over from the Canadian support staff would take about two weeks. TOKYO (AP) Viet- nam today accused the Cana- dian delegation to the Inter- national Commission of Control and Supervision (ICCS) in Viet- nam of "wrongdoings" and urged the commission to get on with its work. A statement issued by the for- eign ministry of North Vietnanr made the accusation against the Canadians. It was broadcast by" Hanoi's official Vietnam news agency and monitored in Tokyo. The statement said the joint communique signed June 13 "clearly defined urgent meas- ures" designed to implement the agreement. "But in the state- ment said, "because of er- roneous acts of the Canadian delegation, the commission did not hold any meeting to discuss appropriate measures to super- vise the implementation of the Paris agreement and the June joint communique. "This abnormal situation has obviously encouraged the tions by the United States and the Saigon administration." The statement said that the government of North Vietnam "holds that the Canadian dele- gation should immediately stop its wrongdoings and that the ICCS should soon resume its meeting to fulfil its obliga- tions." The Canadian government has said it will withdraw from the ICCS at the end of July be- cause the commission has been ineffective in keeping the peace in Vietnam.

Hartwell not OTTAWA (CP) Martin Hartwell, pilot and only survi- vor of a plane that crashed in the Northwest Territories Nov. 8, was flying in conditions for which he was not qualified, says the official accident report released Tuesday. The report, prepared by the transport ministry, says the pi- lot was licensed to fly only un- der visual flight conditions but undertook a flight in conditions that required instrument quali- fications. Mr. Hartwell had not been ade- quately trained for Arctic win- ter flying and the company that operated the plane, Gateway Aviation, did not adequately su- pervise its visual flight oper- ations, says the report. The plane disappeared while carrying a nurse and two patients from Cambridge Bay, Northwest Territories, to Yel- lowknife, the territorial capital. The report notes that the flight began just as the sun was set- ting. Hartwell, thfr tone survivor of the crash, was rescued Dec. 9 after 32 days. He later admitted he had eaten the flesh of one of his dead passengers to survive. The wreckage was located 185 miles west of the plane's course. The report says Mr. Hart- well's plane did not carry snow- shoes or the amount of concen- trated food required by air regulations. Nor was the twin- engine Beecbcraft equipped for instrument flying in the area of compass unreliability through which it travelled. In Edmonton, operations manager Doug Rae of Gate- way Aviation objected Tuesday to what he described as con- demnation of Hartwell in the report. "He mafic an effort to pre- serve said Mr. Rae. "Un- fortunately he failed and saw he's being condemned for doing so." -Mr. Rae, whose company also was criticized in the said some of the statements by the investigative team were un- fair, especially comments on food requirements and visual flight rules. Mr. Kartell, believed living in Edmonton, was not avail- able for comment.

HELSINKI (CP) Canada has launched a determined ef- fort to restore Canadian and other families broken by the old Iron Curtain and the Soviet freeze on emigration of many of its subjects. Calling for a more sympa- thetic approach to the- whole question of reuniting families, External Affairs Minister Mit- chell Sharp told the 35-country European security conference that the question of freer move- ment "is, hi many ways, the touchstone of the success of the conference." Earlier Sharp told reporters that many Canadian families had relatives in Eastern Europe and in the Soviet Union that they are unable to visit or to have with them in Canada. Throughout the post-war years, one or two members of a family managed to slip out of Eastern Europe only to realize that they might never see their wives, mothers, children again. The removal of barriers, the free movement of people and increased communication among people, would help the prospect of peace and security in Europe, he maintained. Citing the question of divided families, the Canadian minister conceded that specific cases must be dealt with on a bilat- eral is, state tn state. But he added that "the enun- -riaiion of principles and the adoption of concrete measurer on divided families and similar problems, substantiaUy biprove inter- state relations." Sharp reaffirmed the need for Canadian involvement in the current conference and Eu- ropean affairs. He spoke of-, "the inter- dependence ofv Europe and North America an impor- tant fact of international life for Canada in particular." DISCUSS RELATIONS Earlier, Sharp discussed the establishment of diplomatic re- lations between Canada and East Germany with East Ger- msn Foreign Minister Otto Winzer. Only administrative details regarding such relations re- main to be'settled in talks that have been going on in Warsaw between the Canadian and East German ambassadors to Poland. The East Germans want to establish an embassy in Ot- tawa as soon as possible. The Canadians expect to coy- er the East German diplomatic beat from their Warsaw em- bassy. Today's meeting was the first between a Canadian and an East German foreign minister. Ottawa tries to patch up Alberta-Ontario gas rift EDMONTON (CP) The federal government wQI con- tinue to attempt to bring Al- berta and Ontario together in their fight over natural gas prices. Enerey Minister Don- ald Macdcnald said Tuesday. He said the Alberta Ontario dispute is a question of deter- mining prices and normally wouM be settled through nego- tiation. Ontario has suggested it win go to court to test Alberta's de- sire to raise the price for its natural gas. Ontario filed an uitei vtiiiUou Friday with the Alberta Energy Resources Conservstion Board challenging the board's jurisdiction to rule on gas being exported from the province. Mr. MacdonaM said his posi- tion is to "try to find some basis for agreement between a producing province and a con- suming province." Mr. Macdonald said be be- lieved Alberta's two price na- tural gas plan is constitutional because it actually is a one- price system with a rebate by the provincial government to Alberta Alberta next stop EEGINA (CP) Red caipets and coats roll but for the Queen today as the honorary commis- sioner of the RCMP celebrates 100 years of peacekeeping with the federal force.
