Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta S6 THE kDHBRIDGE HERAID _ Wednesday, March 14, 1973 Nationalism not a fad, savs author TORONTO (CP) From the unseemly clutter of Abra- ham llotstcin's office. Hie -13- year-old professor looked out on (lie national scene, puffed A m e r i c an cigarettes, nnd Canadians of tlvc per- ils pf foreign ownership. T h e political economist's first book to come out of Hie paper-strewn office, Tho Pre- carious Homestead, has just been published by New Press. Mr. Rotslein, a teacher at University of Toronto, is foun- der oE the Committee for an Independent Canada, now with 7.000 members, and has been the unpaid managing ed- itor of Canadian Forum-lie calls it "the only serious mag- azine in the whole country" tor six years. The Forum hit front pages nationally a year_ ago last November whea it printed Isrgi; chunks of tho govern- ment's long-delayed Gray He- riort on foreign imcstinent, release was blocked by B deadlocked cabinet. Embassy requests probe Mr. Rotstein has never told any one lie got his hands on the report. Ho became convinced Can- ada was horded the v.rong direction in 19W. after he met Kurl Polanyi, a Viennese law- ytr, autjior and philosopher, v.lio gave a course at Colnm- hia University, New York, that an intellectual eartlxjuake." I'olauyi, who died in 1904, spent his last years in Picker- ing, Ont, just cast of here, mid his presence there prompted Mr. Rotstein, a Montrealer, to ITIOYC to To- ronto. Mr. Rotstcin worked on his PhD thesis, fur trade in j Canada, and visited Polanyi j ip Pickering several times a week to help him complete a book tho study of a pre-iit- crate Negro kingdom in Vv'est Africa applied to modern soci- ety. "I began to sense the whole Canadian Mr. Rot- stein said.. "1 see what foreign Investment was doing. I saw it in a sudden and startled way and I realized that what was at stake was the future of the society, not just a matter of dollars and cents. "Yet I found a lack of con- cern among my colleagues: they thought it was a good thing." When Milton Wilson retired In the mid-Gte from the posi- tion of managing editor o! Ca- nadian Forum Mr. Rotstein took over. In the late 60s he put to- gether the policy papers and helped set up the Committee for an Independent Canada. FOUND SUPPORT Mr. Rolstein said of his de- veloping years: "I was quite sure that I was destined to remain a maver- ick in my views on the foreign ownership question, but I was wrong. "Expressions of support came slowly at first, but grad- ually the climate cf public opinion began to shift. My mm task, as I saw it through- out theso years, was to find an intellectual toe-hold for an alternative position." The nationalism kick is not just a fad, he said. The Com- mittee for an Independent Canada has "been the target cf an invidious campaign by some individuals who've never liked it, but Uiere are 13 to 20 chapters across Canada, and small groups in small centres." "There's a growing re- sponse, in fact, from quite a mixed group. It's a ques- tion of Canadian survival reacliing a far greater num- ber of people than in tho pest." Awl the American ciga- rettes? it comes to In control from this maze of switches on Dick Arthur's control panel he operales his model railway. During the last 25 years he has spent a large part of his free time assemb- ling a collection of locomotives and cars, looking to day when he could build a "king-size" model railway lay- out. OTTAWA (CP) The Mexi- can embassy has sent a tele- gram to tiiat country's tourist department asking for an inves- tigation into charges by a group of Canadian tourists that they were held under armed guard In an Acapulco hotel. Mexican Ambassaiior Rafael Urdaneta said today he es- saying they had paid the To- day. The 'group of 40 tourists ar- rived in Toronto Saturday and charged they were detained by armed police at their hotel villa until they signed statements saying they had paid the To ronto travel agency arranging their tour in full before leaving Canada. After signing, the group was allowed to catch their return flight home. J. M. president of Trans-Canada Travel which owns Fantasy Tours, the tour operator, said in a statement that a check of accounts showed the hotel had been paid for all acormnodations booked by the agency. A Mexico City lawyer repre- eenting the hotel said Fantasy Tours owes the hotel for lodging five package-plan tour- ist groups. j "Apparently it's a case of a i misunderstanding between the! rettes, women and hotel and the travel I smiled, "I draw the line on tlic ambassador said.
