Mr. Gillespie countered that Canada is not a net exporter in other areas and there are other methods of retaliation. He noted the two-price system adopted by the government for crude wellhead price for Canadian crude at a barrel is about below the current world said oil is a special case. Oil is a homogeneous com- modity with a relatively fixed distribution system.

GILLESPIE Disclosure legislation introduced VICTORIA The British Columbia Government introduced legislation Thursday which would force every provincial municipal official and public employee to disclose their financial interests. Attorney General Alex MacDonald said outside the house the Public Officials and Employees Disclosure Act is tougher legislation than a similar bill brought in during the spring session in 1973 but allowed to die on the order paper.
