Whafs in that bag? Saturday, Manh 31, 1973 THE LETHBRIDOf HKAID _ 27 Airline pre-clearance dumped on governments By IRVING C. WHYNOT CP Business Editor TORONTO (CP) A. long- simmering move to dilch the procedure under which passen- gers flying to the United States from major Canadian centres have the convenience of cus- toms clearance at the point of departure now seems to be dumped into the laps of the Ivvo governments. Air Canada brought the mat- ter to a head Wednesday when it announced that it will not al- low the practice its flights to the U.S. after April 29. It askec the government to wilhdraw the customs pre- passengers on as the only stumbling block. He said the U.S. government as committed to providing adequate service" even though revious policy was to staff nly one facility at each air- ort. He guessed that tem- >orary service could be started vilhin two weeks. U.S. carriers quickly called a meeting following Air Canada's nnouncement, with the aim of 'doing anything we can to keep pre clearance going." The U.S. airlines operating from Ca nadian polnls. The whole matter which in volves not only the airlines bu several government depart ments on both sides of the bov der, is complicated by rivalry between the carriers and talk on allocation of edditiona routes. A spokesmen for the U.S. car riers said Thursday in Washing ton that Air Canada's move "puts everything in a bind." "But we're not tossing in the towel. Air Canada appears to usa the issue to bargain on ad- ditional routes, but that's the wrong attack. "If they go that way. they're not going to get a thing." He said the U.S. government already has asked the Canadian government for talks to sort out the pre-clearance issue. The U.S. request was for discussions "shortly." SEEK SETTLEMENT Transport Minister Marchand fold the Commons Thursday that meetings will be held "to see if we can settle the prob- lem." He said the refusal of U.S customs to operate out of the new second terminal at Toronto Air Canada starts using April placed Air Canada in a bad po- sition. The Washington spokesman said he felt the problem of cus- toms facilities at the new ter- minal could be solved, if that Dollar devaluation spurs Australian secession talk spokesman indicated the car- have government support and that pressure be ap- ilied on Canada at the govern- ment level to keep pre-clear- ance in effect. The U.S. itself had considered but rejected the idea of drop- ping pre-clearance. The cus toms department argued tha it was a loophole for narcotics smuggling and that it needet the power of search and arres the Canadian gov- ernment was not willing to grant. PREDICT CHAOg. DELAYS Air Canada said its move was In the best interests of the trav- Hing public but the U.S. air- ines and some Canadian travel gsncics said it would bring a 'cliaos of delays." One estimate s that it will involve a min- mum of an extra hour of travel ime. Under the present system of pre-clearance, a Toronto pas- arrive together at a U.S. cus- oms inspection point, perhaps it the same time as passengers rom other flights. Pre-clearance started in and now processes about three million U.S.-bound passengers a in Toronto, Vancouver, Vinnipeg, Montreal, Bermuda, and Nassau in the Bahamas. The American airlines admit they would lose if pre-clearance s-ditched: One estimate is that it would cost the yi lines oper- ating from Canada about million a year in revenue.

PERTH, Australia (AF) Devaluation of the United States dollar casts a long shad- ow: in Australia it spurs talk of secession. The seceding area would be Western Australia, one-third of this continent. The state has a million people and millions of dollars worth of iron ore, nickel and other minerals, as well as a fair-sized farming and indus- trial economy. Talk of secession has been cropping up every decade or so for a half-century. The people feel to some extent cut off from fellow citizens in the east, miles across the desert plains. Many think they often get a deal because the easteners utaumber them 12 to 1. poisoning. Bond prices market's industrial index, con- Isidered a broad indicator of market direction, rose 4.51 points to 223.77.

In 1933 referendum, the eople voted 2 to 1 in favor of oing it alone. A deputation ent to London and presented petition on secession to Par- ament. A select commission ppointed to consider the peti- tion decided it was "not proper to be received." The matter lapsed. Now, the U.S. dollar is worth 70 Australian cents compared with 90 cents in 1970. Most of Western Australia's iron ore contracts are written in U.S. dollars. NEW EFFORT LAUNCHED Heading the current move- ment, 79-year-old Tom Inde- man has set up the Seces- sion Steering Committee. He says it includes 50 men in the 27-35 Oge group. Iron Ore king Lang Hancock has lost millions in the change in the Australian value of U.S currency. He is strongly in fa vor of "an independent govern- ment in Western Australia." Referring to the failure of thi petition nearly 40 years ago, he said Uiat today "it only needs strong leader for Western Australia to follow Rhodesia' make reaty joods. xample and make a unilateral eclaration of independence."
