Chairman Anthony Hampson and President Marshall Crowe aid in an interview the corpo- ation will concentrate on long- term Investments that greatly aid Canadian development but do not pay oft for many years. The corporation, organized even months ago after being reated by Parliament, Is tok- ng its first step on the road to cecoming a multi-biliion-dollar nvestment fund by purchasing Connaught Medical Research taboratories In Toronto, manu- acturcr of insulin and other medical products. Mr. Hampson, a 41-year-old ormcr Montreal financier, said the CDC hopes to build Con- naugh Unto a large, internation- ally-active organization through expansion and mergers with other companies. "We want to become an cffec- .ive force in the health-care field and create a multi-national Janadian-based company in that field." The CDC also plans a major nvestment in the mining field, with the object of building a di- versified mineral extracting and processing operation. In addition, it is negotiating to federal Crown corporations such as Polymer Corp. in Sar- nia, Out. and Northern Trans- jorlation Ltd. and the 45 per cent federal interest In Panarc- lic Oils Ltd. Mr. Crowe, former economic adviser to the Canadian Impe- rial Bank ot Commerce and sec. retary to the cabinet, said the CDC probably will give the gov- ernment additional CDC shares tor the Crown corporations. The federal government now is the only shareholder and is putting million into the corporation over three years. But offering of shares to the general public could come as early as next year, they said. Mr. Hampson said the genera1 public has shown interest in the corporation and a large share of CDC capital would come from the public, rather than financial and business institutions. To encourage greater publii participation, CDC shares coulc be sold through banks and on the instalment plan. Each share would cost about Returns to investors will be slow and small, Mr. Hampson emphasized.

All CDC nvestments would be in Canadi- an-controlled companies. Mr. Hampson compared the estimated billion worth of ong-term foreign investment in Canada now with a possible DC capital of >iliion from of 200 million shares at an average each, 51 billion raised from sale of ion-voting shares, and billion in borrowed capital. "The percentage in relation to 'oreign ownership won't be that significant but we hope that we'll have a catalytic effect too. "That billion might con- trol effectively or billion so it could be quite-a significant 'actor quite apart from the ef- tect we may have in encourag- ing Canadians to take a more effective posture in develop- ment situations outside the gambit of the CDC. "And, you know, if we work successfully presumably it will encourage others." AH in all, said Mr. Crowe, "over time it could have an ap- preciable effect on increasing Canadian control of the econ- omy." Overseeing the mulli-billion- doliar investments would be a staff of about 12, including sec retaries. Mr. Hampson said the CDC offices are in Ottawa to permit easier negotiation with the fed- eral government on purchase of the Crown corporations and to be close centres. But the would be considering a request from the federal government that the corporation establish its head office in Vancouver.
