It is not a major problem as far as Greece is concerned, he said. Greece exports million .vorlh of goods to Canada while importing million worth of goods from this country- People play the most impor- tant role in re! at tons between the two countries, blr. Theo- doropoulos said. On the one hand, people of Greek extraction live i n Canad a, constituting 'f t Ire most durable and .solid link be- tween Canada and Greece."

In 1965, about people immigrated to Canada from the mediterranean c o u nlry. Last year, there were only new Greek Canadians. The importance of tte human element is also seen in (he growing number of Canadian tourists who visit Greece, Mr. Theodoropoulos said. The num- ber rose to in 1971 from in 1D60 and the ambas- sador expects a further in- crease this year.

Money will come from a va- riety of sources, including the department of culture, youth and recreation and the office of tourism, the minister said in L interview. However, in the budget to be announced a year from now, there will be a specific sum for the police centennial, he said. Asked how much the govern- ment will spend on centennial activities this year, Mr. Dow- 'ing said "I'm not going to tell you that." The focus of celebrations in Alberta will be Fort Maclcod nil Lclhbridge, where the North West Mounted Police came in 1874 after being form- ed in J373. In 1904, King Edward VII be- stowed the word "Royal" to the Mounties and in 1920 the name Royal North West Mounted Po- lice was changed to Royal Ca- nadian Mounted Police. Mr. Dowling said he met with Jean-Pierre Goyer, (he solicitor general of Canada here Monday and learned that the federal government's plans for the police centennial are still "in The federal government has commissioned a film by a Hol- lywood firm on a story about the history of the force written especially for the centennial by Alberta author W. 0. Mitchell. Mr, Dowling said he hopes the Alberta government will commission a painting by an Alberto artist, depicting a scene from the early history of the mounties. Mr. Dowling said he and Horst Schmid, minister of cul- ture, youth and recreation aro joint chairmen of an Alberta government committee plan- ning centennial celebrations. In 1974 Alberta will stage its major celebrations, lit? said while the federal government will put on its main show in 1073. However, celebrations arc planned jointly for both years.

Each country practices non inter- ference in the internal affairs of the other country.

He tiid say that even with controls, it would take a long time to break the back of the inflation problem. He said before controls can be imposed successfully there will have to be widespread pub- lie support for such action and the government will have to back it up. "Support for controls Is preity low-key, lo put it mild- he said. Dr. Young said the volun- tary six per cent guideline fail- ed to make much of an im- pact because neither the labor segment nor the government gave it much support. Dr. Young came down hard on those who maintain Cana- dians should be prepared lo live with inflation. "Virtually no one advocates inflation for its own sake, and many of those who are pre- pared to accept it lend to avoid stating their position very ex- he said.

Dr. Young pointed out that inflation not only makes its ef- fects fell at home, but it is also making an impact on the inter- national financial scene, "It is very important to avoid rate of cost increase which higher than one's trading he said. 'Sooner or later this will make it more difficult for ex- port industries to sell abroa tl and for import industries to re- sist the inroads of foreign com- petitors." Dr. Young said inflation poses a moral dilemma for the government because if the pub- lic is kept informed of what is being done to fight inflation, then it is beaten before it starts. "To the extent the public is correctly informed, any gains in output and employment will be Ire said. Tf the government tries to hide its inflation-fighting pol- icies, it loses public confidence.
