Prof. Creighton, 63, for many years a distinguished historian at the University of Toronto, has arranged an impressive ac- count lo support his pessimism about Canada's relations with the United Slates. Dealing with both trade-and- invcslraent figures and reports of domestic and international crises, his book, publislxxl by Macmillan of Canada, Ltd., out- lines a history o{ steadily-declin- ing Canadian independence. John A. Macdonald and other pioneers of Confederation, he says, tried immigration and Politically, he associates the Conservatives with strong vi- sions of a centralized Canadian nation state. The Liberals, he' repeats several times, have al- ways called for decentralization and "free trade doctrines. Prof. Creighton has harsh words for prime ministers Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Mackenzie King, presenting both as auto- cratic leaders of party country. RECALLS POSITION Disclosing Laurier's opposi- tion to conscription legislation during the First World War, be PROF. CREIGHTON Pessimistic writes: Laurier had prophesied that would fail; and obviously western settlement, rail trans- port and a protective tariff to complete their vision oi an inde- pendent country in the northern half of this continent. U.S. STRENGTH GREW But as the U.S. grew stronger the program became less via- ble, so that American invest- ment was 61 per cent of non-res- ident investment in 1930 where it had been 14 per cent in 1900. The Second World War pro- pelled U.S. involvement in Can- ada to a degree that later had the liberal government of Louis St. Laurent toeing an American line on Korea ar.d the Suez. Through all this, Prof. Cre'gh- lon outlines corresponding dec- lines in Canada's involvunienl with Britain, in a style recalling George Grant's Lament for a Kalioa, a similarly-pessimistic review of Canada's independ- ence which Vv-as published in 1965. Laurier must have been right. But, in fact, Laurier was wrong; and the apologists and ha Biographers who tried to jus- lify his stand have simply falsi- fied the record." King is dealt with in biting phrases at nearly every men- tion, and is finally dismissed in these words: "He had claimed to be a Ca nadiaa nationalist; in reality, he was, from Ihe beginning, a Sorth American coutinentalist He had systematically under mined C a n a d a 's connections with Britain; and, instead o strengthening her national sell sufficiency, he had simply re- placed the broken imperial ties with infinitely stronger conti nental bonds, which had effec- tively shackled Canada la Ihe Uniled Slates." Former prime minister John Dicfenbaker is treated as champion of Canada's nation- the same as he was by as an obstacle t continentalization. For Prof. Creighton, Canada U.S. relations are the crucia Coho Salmon Experiment In Cold Lake EDMONTON (CP) Alberta '.viil try '.9 iodroduce colw sal- mon in ColiJ Lake, Dr. J. Dor.o- van Ross, minister of lands and forests, announced. "IS the experiment is suc- cessful, Alberta sport fisher- will be provided with an exciting new species." He said in a prepared stale- meat the experiment will use about five to six inch fish raised from eggs giver, to the province by Alaska in 1968. Coho slocking programs in other areas, particularly Lake Michigan, have produced sport fish weighing at least 12 pourais in only two years, he said. The fish grew well because cf largo populations of alewivcs, small fish that turned out to be ideal food for coho. Wildlife officials believe small fish in Cold Lake will servu the same purpose, al- though it is generally lass-pro- ductive than the Great lakes I'ish weighing at least four pounds are predicted for 107! A second experiment with Oregon Coho will be made in tho spring of 1971 and com parisons will be made to sec which of tlie two stocks is DCS for Alberta lakes, he said Experiments elsewhere hav shovm that Alaska slock ma lures earlier but docs no match the size cf Oregon slock Cold Lake is 150 miles north- easl of Edmonton or, tho Al bcrla Saskatchewan border therr.e, but they ere not an esc elusive theme. He makes a early reference to the "juxlapc silioa of French and English as the "prime antithesis of the new and he neve strays far from the subject. At another point he dismisses the "compact theory" of Co federation, which Interpre Confederation as a contract be- tween the French and Englis racial groups and is popula with many historians.
