Trudeau is quoted as saying his government "isn't trying to buy back Canada to use that cliche." "It's trying to make sure that we control that small number of institutions which have greater im- pact on our development as an individual society. "I think the art will be not to try and remain dis- tinct from the Americans in all things hut to choose those areas in which we think our values are superior."

"It's been very difficult to got liic Canadian people to understand the true ir.eaing of federalism that sov- ereignly is really divided in its exercise between two levels of he is quoted as saying.

Well, they are often the people who pollute the country the most, very often because they are litterbugs or because they make one hell of a lot of noise with Iheir revved-up cars and their snowmobiles and hi-fi's and so on." On the subject of inflation, Trudeau said: "I sup- pose I was a bit traumatized by those cabinet meetings when we almost saw devaluation of the dollar, f realized then that the generosity of past governments, through the lack of sophisticated tools, to forecast the conse- quences of expenditures three years ahead, had almost brought us lo economic disaster. "I vowed that we wouldn't let it happen again and thai is why fo much of our lime now is taken up with planning, and why BIB government appears lo he moving ralher slowly to those who hoped that we would bring in great decisions quickly."
