The Calgary South MP ami former Parliamentary secre- tary lo Edgar Benson when Mr. Benson was holding the finance; portfolio, can bring forth pretty substantial ovidcncc lo back in his contention. Tor instance, the provisions suggested in tho new Competi- tion Act will be much easier In and Ihey are taxation provisions. Tne tost ol time will show that. However, while Mr. Jilahoncy denies emphatically that the TriK.eau administration has an anti business streak, he ycots that businessmen iu gen- eral may have every to fce'i harassed hy all the legis- lation the government is bring- ing forth. "We have probably had lo suggest loo much change all at once. We've given a lot to digest in a very short period ot time. Every one has a con- servative touch in them, it's natural. People prefer to work under rules aim regulations ____ tllei' rather tllan un" lire new ones they are not so live about. "But much of this legislation is very contentious.

The Russians also asked for curity. As the fifth session of the! Japan Soviet Economic Com- mittee ended here this week, it was clear that both Japanese businessmen and the Russian Government are above all in- terested in tbc joint develop- ment of the vast West Siberia fuel resources, Other projects discussed dur- ing the week were the develop- ment of coking coal mines m Yakutia (East and of natural gas extraction around the island of Sakhalin. But the plum is the Tyumen oilfields of West Siberia which the Russians estimate to hold four to five thousand million tons of lovv sulphur crude oil, The Russians this week pro- posed to supply Japan each year with between 30 and 50 mil- Japanese businessmen sec in the project a chance to lessen their dependence on the Middle East now supplies HO per cent of Japan's crude oil im- ports. Their dislike of relying an unpredictable part of the world for oil has been strengthened by the way the Middle East producers have pushed up their prices. It would take only two days to ship crude oil from Nakhodka to Japan compared with the 29- day tanker voyage from the Middle East. Supporters of the project say transport would be safer as well as cheaper. ENTHUSIASTIC for the Yakuiia coal project. This would involve linking the mines with the trans Siberian railway and could ten years give Japan three million tons of good quality coking coal a year. Japanese participation in the development of Siberia has been discussed by the two countries for several years now, but ha? only recently begun to take shape. Japan is currently involved or committed to take part, ii the exploitation of ttie Sovie Far Eastern lumber industry and the construction of a nev Pacific port on the Bay o Wr angel.

And yet, despite the tighter restrictions in force across the border, business there has continued to flourish. Amendments to the Labor Code have caused some Cana- dian businessmen to throw up I their hands in dismay and hor- ir. But, says (he man did e heavy work of guiding the ammoth taxation reform pro- osals through Iho House of ommons, the amendments eally no more s'ringent than currently on the in Ontario. I ask any sensible person to ell me how, ill 1972, can la- legislation not take into con- deration technological change, low can we ignore that a de- ision by management regard- ng new machinery, computers >r processes might throw ;cores or even hundreds of men ml of work? Obviously, these hings are impossible to ig- he contends. JAKES PREDICTION What's more, Mr. Matoncy predicts that Canadian business- will find themselves unita able to live and flourish under these two chunks of legislation just as they will under new imcMidmcnts both had their niufls some five years ago. They started off during a Umc of minority government, so il is obvious we'd attempt to get ilio .l.slctLion on the books just as soon as wo gol majority yoverti- mcnt in Ofiawji." tVDYlSUS CKITICS Mr. Mnhoney siiggcsfs thnt critics of I lie administration should take a look some of tho gootl tilings the government tias given the business commu- such as a stable and healthy economic climate. "For instance, our Gross Na- tional Product growth rate tins been significantly higher than Unit of the United States, even when the GNP in that countrv was at a virtual standstill In fact, the Financial Times of London awarded Canada it? economic Oscar for the way wo handled our economy." 'Of course, I he government caii'l take nil llic credit for the gi'owth in the economy. Tin1 nation's InisiiK'ssiiK'n li a v e made an outstanding contrihu- tion. Kvcryono .slionhl recognize that and proml of it." Mr. Mahoney stands firmly on the contention that Hie phil- osophy of (lie govern- menl, like '.hat of other Cana- dian governments, is tlinl Can- ada is a country wilh hnsically a free enterprise economy. Buf he that for of everyone, including business, the government sometimes has to step in to make that free enterprise economy work hct- ler.

But the new plans discuss re immensely bigger rcry way and this explains th of the Japanese rnment, as opposed to bus ess, in handling them. A lough the Russian dcEcgatio as headed hy a vice-ministe or foreign trade, Japanese dip mats and trade officials onl [tended the committee sossio s observers. The Governmen well aware that Moscow L iw making a big play Co apan. The recent visit 'okyo of Mr. Gromyko, the So Set Foreign Minister his first several years made that lain enough. Japanese officials do not vant to give the impression, lat they are ganging up with lussia against China, yet the Siberian pipeline (the first of s kind) would greatly help tho Russian army and navy in the East and along the border vith China. The deeply conservative Gov- rnment in Tokyo also has ob- vious reservations about letting 'apan become dependent on a Communist Power for a large part of its fuel supply. The Arab nations may be un- predictable, but in the eyes of a Japanese Tory, Russia is Red and inherently suspect. There is also some doubt about the right- ness of making such a large oan and on such ferms to an- other super-Power.
