Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE UVHSiilOGE March 1171 Anthony Westell Is help the answer Keeping Canadian businesses out of the hands of the Americans has be come such an obsession with a great many people dial the idea of free enterprise is being further Free enterprise is not necessarily an ultimate to be bowed down to unre servedly but if it is to be abandoned it should be clone openly and un The welter of tariff protections and subsidies and incentives in effect in Canada indicates that free enterprise is now honored more in name than in The question is for the sake of the process of diminishing the reality of free en terprise should be A new assault is currently being massed by the book publishing in Loss oi a couple of old Cana dian firms to Ameiican interests and threats that more might go the same way has led to the book publishers seeking government assistance Book publishers may have as much right to expect some sort of protec tion as textile But it is a troubling question whether tax payers should shore up businesses simply to keep them There is some evidence that Cana dian publishing firms are in trouble because they have not operated wise ly which in the business world means for in got into difficulties when it installed a costly and uneconomical McClelland and Stewart has lost money on grossly over esti mated And it is altogether pos sible in the attempt to encour age Canadian writer too many books are being published more people seem to want to write novels than are willing to read as has been pointed It should be possible for Canadian publisheis to stay in business with out getting a handout from the gov But the fervor for Cana dianism might prevail over prudence and then the next industry in line can step up with hands Teachers demands With the mood of the public grad ually becoming less enchanted over the soaring cost of teach ers in and certainly picked a poor time to threaten to strike over unsatisfactoiy salary Teaching is an admirable profes one which takes pa tience and a genuine liking for young But for many years teachers had to put up with miserly unpleasant working and in many often spent long hours on extra curricular activities with their In the past couple of decades the lot of teachers has improved immeas Their federations have gone to batfor them on many issues to upgrade their Granted they are still not in the income bracket of other professional groups such as lawyers and nevertheless they have some advantages the oth ers do namely July and and ten days at Easter and Christ These fringe benefits are not re alized by many wage earners and while most people would not quarrel with the teachers real need for nor would argue that their annual wage increases have been too gener they are nonetheless perturbed when it appears demands are be coming Such is the case at the present time in the above mentioned prov inces where teachers have threaten ed to go on strike unless their de mands are Strikes by teachers should be unthinkable because ulti mately the students become the vic with the economy in the position of fighting inflation on one hand and unemployment on the the teachers are not going to maintain the sympathy and support they feel they deserve from the tax mainly because taxpayers have been happy to hear that educa tion costs were being questioned at long The per cent pay increase re jected by Calgary teachers recently is a move being repeated by their profession in the other provinces mentioned To the average wage earner this increase seems like a fair Sooner or later their and school boards are going to realize the pitcher can only go to the well so often before it runs very dry Weekend Meditation Against tlie stream rPHE

Parliament and seem to be aware of what may be one of the most crucial Cana issues since Con All they worry about here is whether the PM said he says in turning over another pile of documents on his desk Anderson has been warning at the top of his voice for more than a year about the dangers of a proposal to ship oil in giant tankers from down the British Colum bia around the bottom of Vancouver Island and into a huge new refinery on the Nobody seemed to be listening until recently when Canadians on the west coast came alert to but An derson is convinced that few people have yet grasped the full implications he tankers sailing through some of the most dan gerous waters in the Pacific would threaten Canada with a vast pollution disaster from oil slupping route would rapidly become of such great strategic importance to Wash ington that Canada would have to expand its own navy to vide protection against subma rines or hand over defence of the area to the United But if the United States is convinced that it should not use the Pacific coast tanker Washington will almost certainly have to ask consent to build an oil pipeline from Alaska down across It it proved says Ander such a pipeline would it much more attrac tive to exploit resources in the Canadian Arctic which may otherwise lay untapped for years while development is concentrated in an in cluding of up to six billion dollars and be as im portant in the development of the West as the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway a century The prospect of development on this scale would bring to the crucial point of decision all the complex questions about Canadian and coopera tion on a continental energy The Canadian government is of course aware of the enor mous stakes involved in the decision about the Pacific tanker but it has its own tactical reasons for not becom ing too deeply involved at this When External Affairs Min ister Mitchell S h a r p is asked the occasional question in the he replies that it would not be proper in accordance with diplomatic custom for Canada to ap pear before the domestic commission which is at present hearing evidence on how best to move the Alaska oil to What he really means is that Canada does not want to be a supplicant asking the United States not to endanger the For Washington would then be in a position to drive a hard bargain for permission to use alternative route across The government might even insist on discussing Cana dian objections to the tankers in a package with objec tions to Ottawas nationalist policies extending territorial closing off fishing areas and exerting a 100mile antip Dilution zone in the Rather than become em broiled in giveandtake ne gotiations Sharp would much rather see the decide on its own to ban the Pacific coast tanker although he has written to the secre tary of state offering to dis cuss the While maintaining this offi cial arms1 e n g t h Sharp has taken the unusual course of urging private Cana dian citizens to

by tank er to refineries in the state of just south of Van and in is said to be the largest private development project in costing billions of It is backed by a consortium of international oil corpora by the government of Alaska which claims it will go bankrupt without oil and by poweiful forces within the There have even been reports that the real reason President Richard Nixon fired the last secretary ot the interior was that he was not moving fast enough on the Alaska For Sharp to suggest that private Canadian citizens can have any worthwhile impact on such a formidable array ot may seem silly and an evasion of Ottawas own But Anderson has shown what one man can Speaking of growing French influence Letters To The Editor Another side to involvement in Vietnam ivar The much talked about
