Association President L. J. Adams said in a statement lie is concerned about reports that many stores and restaurants in Canada have stopped paying a premium since the "free float- ing" Canadian dollar this week increased in U.S. dollar value. The Canadian dollar has ranged betweeen 96 and 97 cents this week compared with the previous fixed 92.5 cents in U.S. funds. Mr. Adams said all tourist service operators should follow the lead of many major depart- ment stores and allow a two- per-ccnl premium on U.S. cur- rency, subject to further adjust- ments.

The 80-page rcporl, prepared by the defence committee's subcommittee on maritime forces, deals with Canadian sea power possibilities for the pe- riod 1973 lo J9S3. It will be examined by the full defence committee beginning Monday. I Subcommittee C h a i r m a n Keith Penner Bay) said in an interview Friday the report's recommendations are based on the belief that the gov- ernment intends to take defence of Canada's Arctic sovereignty seriously. It asks thai the government consider an Arctic defence pro- gram based on three main pil- surveillance, a nuclear submarine patrol equipped with convention weap- ons, and sea bottom sonar det- ection. In each case. Mr. Penner said, it is recommended that, Canada build up its strength by itself rather than in co-operation with other countries, since the issue is sovereignty. Mr. Penner said the report advocates the acquisition of be- tween three and five nuclear submarines. MAY REPLACE TRACKERS It also emphasizes the import- ance of maintaining a mobile force of long-range surveillance, aircraft, which may mean re- placing Canada's current force of about 30 Argus long-range tracker aircraft. Committee testimony has re- I vealed that the Argus's elec- tronic equipment should he re- placed soon, and the defence de- partment has been weighing the a d v a n t a g e s of refitting the present: planes or purchasing 1 new ones. The two options most men- j tioncd for new planes are U.S. turbo-prep Orions. m a n n f a c- tured by Lockheed, or British jet Nimrods, built by Hawker- j Siddeley. Either would probably cost about per aircraft. Cost of new nuclear submar- ines, which would probably he purchased from the United States, is between liowevcr. Mr. Penner said the subcommittee feels that used, but not outdated, nuclear sub- marines could be obtained from the American government as it updates its submarine program. The report, also recommends "a greater mix" of ships. It approves the four anti-sub- marine warfare destroyers now being built by the government is expected to be commis- sioned next says sub- sequent craft should he lighter and faster. The report also recommends a greater degree of co-ordina- tion among Canada's Arctic defence dcpart- niont, the transport department. In? RCMP and the fisheries de- j pariment.
