Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, 14, 1972 THE lETHBRIDGt OTKAtB Anti-nuclear campaign official blasts Canada By HAROLD MOMRISON STOCKHOLM (CP) Ben M c t c a 1 f e, chairman of the Greenpeace anli-nuclcar cam- paign, says Cnada's abstention in a nuclear test-ban resolution here is "a shameful example" that the Canadian government is in alliance wills "all HIB nu- clear anarchists of which France is the most outstanding culprit." Supersonic airliner said noisy TOKYO (Reuler) Concorde 002, the Anglo-French super- sonic 'Jrliner, made u success- ful demonstration [light over Japan today, despite criticism of its excessive noise. For about 20 minutes of its Ui-hour flight it flew at mach 2 the speed of the Japanese coasl. A Japanese reporter on board the British-built prototype said: "It was as noisy as a storm on take-off and lauding, but rela- tively comfortable after break- ing the sound barrier." Concorde's manufacturers are hoping to convert three options held by Japanese airlines into firm orders. But the initial public reaction has been one of skepticism be- cause of Concorde's louder- than-normal engine noise anc potential for polluting Japan's already fouled air. The Vancouver campaigner, who recently was deported from said in a statement Tues- day that through the abstention at the United Nations environ- ment conference committee de- rate, the Canadian delegation b e t r a y e d" the anti-nuclear cause. Metcalfe met reporters after Environment Minister Jack Davis said at a news conference :he Canadian delegation intends to reverse its position and en- dorse the New Zealand-Peru- vian resolution which calls for a ban on all nuclear weapons test- ing, especially those in the at- mosphere. The resolution was adopted in committee stage by a vote of 48 to 2 with Cliina and France op- posing. The Canadian delegation felt that the language ol the res- olution appeared to be aimed at France whereas Canada wanted a more general prohibition with no country specifically men- tioned. However, France is not named in the resolution. A ketch known as Greenpeace Three now is in the South' Pa- cific area where France is ex- pected to explode a nuclear de- vice in the atmosphere perhaps in a week or so. HEADS THE CREW Tiie three-man crew is headed by David McTaggart, 40, ol Vancouver. The two other mem- bers are from Australia anc Britain. Metcalfe had joined the boat for part of the trip to the test area and then left to take his campaign to Paris, Rome aud Stockholm. About two weeks ago he landed in Paris to prepare a demonstration at Notre Dame Cathedral. He was in the cit; about tlirce hours walking over a bridge when four plainclothes- men stopped Metcalfe and his wo companions and took them to a police centre where Met- calfe was served with a depor- tation order. Metcalfo maintained that the deportation was an indication of collusion between the Cana- dian and French administra- ions to stop his campaigning. He said he tried to reach Cana- dian Ambassador Leo Cadieux mt was advised by the French police that the ambassador did not want to hear from him. Metcalfe was escorted by rail i the Italian border by a French police agent. After an audience with the Pope, Met- calfe continued to Stockholm where, he said, he has been in- fluencing the New Zealand envi- ronment delegation to strengthen its position on the French test. Metcalfe said that Lois Boyce of Richmond, B.C., president of the B.C. Environmental Council, wrote to Prime Minister Tru- deau June 2 to obtain an explan- ation of Metcalfe's treatment in Paris and so far has received only an acknowledgement bul no explanation. The bearded campaigner said he also approached Davis on the abstention issue but was brushed off with a statement that the minister was only a domestic politician.
