24 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Saturday, Juno 6, 1970 Cabinet Ministers Wanted By Indian Negotiators OTTAWA (CP) Canadian Indians are taking "a wait and see" attitude following pre- sentation of their brief to cabi- net rejecting the government's proposed new Indian policy and covering their own proposals. Harold Cardinal, head of the Alberta Indian Association, told a hews conference Prime Min- ister Tnideau appeared sym- pathetic to the Indian submis- sion. But Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien and Robert Andras, minister without port- folio at the time helping Mr. Chretien, had also appeared sympathetic during year long consultations. From these consultations had emerged the proposals Indians rejected outright as govern- ment thinking only, he said Mr. Cardinal said Indians now looked for "positive ac- tion" such as the scrapping of the negotiation and imple- mentation team set up within the Indian affairs branch. In its stead should come a new government negotiation team ministers or members of the irime minister's office. Asked his reaction to Mr. Trudeau's plea for trust bc- ,ween Indians and government officials, Mr. Cardinal said he is prepared to "trust a little. "But not in the white he said. Walter Deiter, president of the National Indian Brother- hood, said Thursday's pre- sentation to cabinet showed real co-operation among In- dians and strong unity. He conceded that Mr. Tni- deau "made no real commit- ments" although he was pleased with the prime minis- ter's statement that he would not force any new policy on the Indians.

No. 41 No. 458 against funds m By JAMES NEI.SON OTTAWA (CP) The govern- ment's white paper proposals for tax law revision will dis- courage foreign investment and could make it difficidt to negoti- ate a new tax treaty with the United States, two American au- thorities told the Senate banking committee here. Mortimer M. Caplin of Wash- ngton, commissioner of internal evenue in the Kennedy admtn- stration, said he warns ag rying to tax the flow of between foreign subsidiaries Canadian corporations. He smle to foreign owners. In addition, Mr. Scott said capital gains taxes paid bj American-owned corporations on the increased worth of tnei investments in Canada-payabl to the Canadian governmen every five years even if the as- sets are not sold-would not be allowed by the US. revenue sen-ice as a credit agains American tax charges. Mr. Scott also said the white paper proposals run counter to current American thinking on international tax treaties. Can ada proposes to tax the capita gains of its residents whereevei the assets are located _m the world, but the U.S. treaties with other countries permit taxinf capital gains only in the othe: country's jurisdiction. "I am sure that the U.S. will opt for the French treaty pat tern Mr. Scott said. "That i an agreement with the Frenc that France won't tax the cap tal gains of Americans unles the gain is made on assets situ ated in France.' Questioned by Senator Saltc Hayden commit tee chairman, Mr. Scott sal there are companies like Unio Carbide that will be unfairl treated by the tax proposals. Union Carbide Corp. of tn U.S. sold a 25-per-cent interes in its Canadian subsidiary o Canadian stock markets i order to qualify for a reduce rate of withholding tax on Cana dian profits being paid to th parent American organization This incentive was to encourag more ownership of busines being done in Canada. However, under the tax pr posals, Union Carbide Canac Ltd. would be less favorab treated than a firm in the sam business whose shareholder were all Canadians.

Senator Hayden said Union, rbide estimates the five-year valuation tax on capital gains uld cost the firm amount that would not be rmitted as an offset against merican taxes on Union Car- de. "Even with the United States ollar falling in relation to the anadian said Senator azarus Phillips hat's not an inconsiderable um." Senator Phillips then left the immittee room while a group Canadian-based international orporations presented a brief wth his son, Neil Phillips, as teir counsel and spokesman. The younger Phillips objected j a white paper proposal to tax Canadian corporations on the o-called "passive income" of leir foreign subsidiaries. The vhite paper proposes to do this y copying features of the con- rovcrsial and highly-complex Subpart F of the U.S. Intema- jonal Revenue Code. Mr. Caplin, called by Mr. Phillips as a witness, said Sub- part F was not originally in- ;cnded to raise tax revenues hat were escaping the U.S. rev- enue department, but to help the U.S. balance-of-payments position. Before its adoption, U.S. firms were encouraged to leave their foreign earnings abroad and escape U.S. taxes. However, Congress added so many exemptions and compliea tions lo the proposal, made bj Mr. Caplin in the early years o President John F. Kennedy' administration, that Subpart T made no significant addition to tax revenues or improvement in the balance of payments. Mr. Caplin urged the Senate committee not to allow Canada to get into the same tax law complications. Mailmen Afraid Of Automation OTTAWA (CP) Postal nc- o t i at i o 11 s are stalled here >artly because Canada's nailmen fear tliey will be re- >lacccl by machines. Wages are the most publicized ssue. But equally important is .he union demand for a written guarantee that no postal worker ihall lose his job because of x'chnological change. Tliis is true despite Postmas- ter-General Eric Kierans' assur- ance that new technology will not force layoffs. To date no one has been fired because a new machine was introduced. The problem seems to be n credibility gap. "We just don't believe Mr. Kierans and we think mass lay- offs will come as the post of- fice says Jimmy Brown, a Toronto staff repre- sentative for the postal workers. Or it could be timing. When past office officials say there won't be layoffs, they are talk- ing about the forseeable future next five or 10 years. The unions are worrying farther ahead than that. William Houle, co-chairman of the Council of Postal Unions, pointed Thursday to now me- chanical processes being devel- oped in Japan and the United States that he says could auto- mate postal sorting, making many of the postal clerks he represents obsolete. That is why, Mr. Houle said, the postal unions have asked for a contract guarantee now that will ensure thai no man will be fired in the future because of the introduction of machines.

Clinic Group Settlement On Prairies Disappearing WINNIPEG (CP) French Canadian ethnic values are strong yet vulnerable; Mennon- e traditional values are dy- ng; Ukrainians, although al- most completely assimilated nto Canadian society still feel strong national identity with iierr homeland in Russia. These themes wei'e brought out by a panel at the Canadian Association of Geographers -neeting at the University of lanitoba discussing ethnic ;roup ihenomena in the Canadian irairies. To illuminate French Cana- [ian cultural distinctions, Prof. I. C. Harris of the University of Toronto compared 19th cen- ury English settlement in On- ario to 19th century French settlement in Quebec. The English, he said, were in- dividualist and regarded pro- p-ess as material gain. They lad a weak sense of time, being neither retrospective, nor in- clined to looking far into the fu- ure. On the other hand, said Prof. Harris, the French Canadian's strong sense of time is one qual- ity fundamental to ethnic sur- vival. He said other factors contributing to their ethnic sur- vival were their strong sense ol onship and their concept of the parish as a major institution in rural Quebec. French Canadian values coulc survive when in isolation, he said, but population growth forced rural settlers into towns and when they percolated new ideas back into rural settle- ments, old traditional values be- came "extremely vulnerable." The dying of the traditional ilennonite village, the lack of contact between scattered Men- nonite groups and the failure of generations to pass on Men- nonite folk history are only a ew factors contributing to Men- nonite identity problems, said University of Manitoba Profes- sor H. L. Sawatzky. Over 80 per cent of Mennon- tes are urban dwellers in Man- toba, he said. Modernization and division of farms .into single ndependent units has destroyed 'that element of community solidarity which was based on mutual assistance and indepen- dence. In contrast to the circum- stances of French Canadians and Mennonites, Ukrainian jroups have consciously assim- latcd into Canadian society, said University of Ottawa pro- fessor J. Tesla. However the jroup still has a strong national Identity and keeps alive many traditions and customs. What keeps Ukrainians to- gether, he said, is the world congress of free Ukrainians, and its goal of freeing the Ukrainian homeland in Russia.

As we all bow, Volkswagens don't change much from year lo year. So the parts thatmakeupa Volkswagen, therefore, don't change much either. (And if we don't spend a lol on new do you.) Also, the way we fix VW's ends up saving you money as well. Because behind every Volkswagen dealership is a staff of factory-trained VW mechanics. Each ono a graduate of Ihe Volkswagen School of Horrors, Trie re, wo mate them take VWs apart and put them together and take them apart and put them together until they can almost do it with Iheir eyes shut. And Volkswagens don'tchange much, our mechanics get plenty of practice (and plenty good at) servicing them. Which keeps labour charges down. And if you don't need a brand new part, they'll fix you up with a brand new old part. (Our excliango parts work just as well as new iust don't cost as much.) And lately, we've come up with what might be the ultimate money-saving device. Our new VW Diagnosis System. With all its electronic eyas and oars, it can see and hear things that a mechanic can't. And actually spot trouble before it happens. Andyou don't have to pay for samelhing ihat doesn't happen.
