Manning critical of CDC project CALGARY (CP) - Plans for the Canadian Development Corporation should be scrapped, Senator Ernest Manning said, because the company is subject to "inevitable political pressures." Such a situation is "most undesirable for resource development and individual interest. Mr. Manning told an audience at the University of Calgary the objectives of the CDC could be better met if the government formed single corporations for specific projects and. financed them by equities. The former Social Credit premier of Alberta also criticized what he termed a "negative brand of emotional nationalism." "Too many politicians and news commentators cannot speak of Canadian sovereignty except in the context of anti-American sentiment." The realities of U.S. - Canada relations must be recognized, he said. The U.S. may be able to live without Canada, but could Canada live without the U.S.? The senator noted Canada's vulnerable military posit i o n and said the country must maintain "wise, realistic negotiations in areas of mutual interest with the U.S." The present methods of raising money for Canadian projects needs changing, he said. "There is very limited opportunity, at present, for individual investors to get involved." But "millions of Canadians form a vast pool of untapped investment capital which could significantly decrease our foreign investment." Prospects for fishing season looks 'grim* EDMONTON (CP) - Prospects for the spring sport fishing season looks "grim" in Alberta, a fisheries biologist said Tuesday. "If this snow doesn't melt soon we will be in bad shape," M. J. Paetz, chief fisheries biologist for the department of lands and forest, said in an interview. Mr. Paetz said heavier-than-usual snow cover this year is robbing Alberta lakes of oxygen. Normally, at this time of year, ice on lakes is beginning to deteriorate and sunlight is able to reach oxygen - producing plants. This year, the sun isn't getting through the snow and fish in some lakes are not getting enough oxygen, he said. Mr. Paetz also said anglers will be warned again this year Record Soviet harvest MOSCOW (Reuter) - Soviet Communist leader Leonid Brezhnev announced today a Soviet record harvest of more than 186 million tons of grain last year. Brezhnev also told delegates to the 24th Communist party congress that last year's raw cotton harvest was 6.9 million tons. "We have never yet had such high gross output," he said of the figures. It was the first official an-nouncement of last year's record grain crop, although Western analysts had already estimated a figure of about 185 million tons. The figure represents an increase of more than 19 million tons over the last grain record set in 1966. Brezhnev also announced that about $144 million will be invested in state and collective farms during the 1971-75 economic plan. This represents the same amount as that invested in agriculture in the last two five-year plans combined, he said. not to eat fish taken from the North and South Saskatchewan Rivers. These fish contain more mercury than is accepted for human consumption. On the brighter side, he said there s h o u 1 d be some good catches of Coho salmon in Cold Lake in east - central Alberta this year. The department expects anglers will be taking salmon six pounds and uj> from the lake by August. It depends on Ottawa says Aalberg EDMONTON (CP) - Alberta would consider attending a conference on foreign investment provided the federal government was represented, provincial treasurer A. 0. Aalborg said Tuesday. The conference, to which provincial and federal govern* ments' representatives would be invited, was proposed Tuesday by the Ontario government in its throne speech. Mr. Aalborg said the benefits of such a conference would be questionable if the federal government didn't attend because it does most of the dealing with foreign governments.
