Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 6, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Seilurdav, May 6, 1972 THE 1ETHBRIDOE HERALD 9 Pepiii issues warning to foreign companies OTTAWA (CP) Trade Min- ister Jean-Luc Pcpin issued an indirect warning Friday to for- eign companies which might be considering takeovers of major Canadian firms before govern- ment legislation governing such takeovers passes Parliament. The legislation was given rou, line first reading in the Com- mons Thursday. But even if a general election isn't called in the near future it could still be months before Parliament passes the bill, which most op- position spokesmen have called inadequate. The bill would require that all foreign takeovers of companies with assets of or annual IIBC Maoist Ferclinau deported VANCOUVER (CP) Self- proclaimed Maoist Fred Ferd- man, a teaching assistant in the University of British Columbia mathematics department, was deported from Canada Thurs- day. Lyle Hawkins, director of im- migration operations for the Pa- cific region, said Ferdrnan, 25, arrived at the immigration of- fice as ordered and was driven to Elaine, Wash., where he crossed the border into the United States. Ferdman, who hurled leaflets protesting U.S. imperialism into the Commons in Ottawa last month, was originally ordered deported last June but ap- pealed. gross sales of million be ap- proved by Ihe government Mr. Pepin was asked in Ihe Commons whether he will set up a unit lo have some surveil- lance over foreign lakeovers which might lake place before the bill becomes law. The minister said the law would not be retroaclive. "But I expecl lhal people who inlend lo proceed to important takeovers in the interim period will keep me informed." Asked outside the Commons why he expected any foreign company would feel it neces- sary to notify him before buying a Canadian company before the law came in, Ihe minister said: "Prudence." BLOCKED TAKEOVERS The government has stepped in on major foreign takeovers before and prevented them, he noted. He cited the govern- ment's refusal to permit Ameri- can interests lo purchase Deni- son Mines Ltd. and similar in- lervention when American in- terests were negotiating lo buy Home Oil Co. Ltd., which was eventually sold to Consumers Gas Co., a Canadian corpora- lion. The silualion has not changed, Mr. Pepin said, and {he govern- ment would move in to prevent lakeovers on an ad hoc basis again if it found such a move necessary. AUTHOR DIES NEW YORK (AP) Maurice Samuel, 77, author and critic who wrote 25 books and trans- lated other major works from Yiddish to English, died at Beth Israel Hospital Thursday after a long illness.

A reporter suggested the gov- ernment probably will not step n on anything other than unu- sually major takeovers befora is bill becomes law. Mr. Pepin agreed. Asked whether he expects a rash of takeovers of firms of other sizes, the minister said: "I just don't know." JEAN-LUC PEPIN Health officials check additives OTTAWA (CP) Canadian health authorities are investi- gating the use of the chemical additives that keep hot dogs, sausages and sandwich meats red-colored and cured-looking, but there are no plans to ban them at this time. Dr. D. G. Chapman, head of the federal health department's food advisory bureau, said Fri- day that sodium nitrate and so- dium nitrite, named Wednesday as dangerous additives in a suit in the United States, have oilier uses than the cosmetic use men- tioned in the American case. The use of small amounts of sodium nitrate and sodium ni- than 200 parts per million under the food and drug permitted Canada, he said. As well in keeping preserved meals red- looking, these help prevent growth of a dangerous bacteria which causes botuline poisoning. "If we banned them we would be concerned lhat there might be a growth of this organ- ism, the c 1 o s t r i d i u m bolu- he said in an interview. Botulism is usually fatal. The U.S. case, filed by a citi- zens' group connected with Ralph Nader's consumer organ- izations, alleges Ihe addilives combine in foods with other sub- stances, called amines, to pro- duce a cancer-causing com- pound. Dr. Chapman said sodium ni- trite and nilrate do combine lo produce nilrosamines, bul said Law society backs projects EDMONTON (CI'I The Law Society of Alberta will continue to support the student legal services projects in the province for the foreseeable fu- ture, says society president Eric McCuaip.

"The law society has been I pleased to assist in the devel- I opmcnt of this undertaking and will continue to do so for i the foreseeable future, he said. ;PROUD OF STUDENTS 1 "We are proud of the stu- i dents for developing this ser- j vice on their own initiative. I The legal services handled j about cases during the four-month period it functioned last year. Assistance is offered under the supervision of prac- tising lawyers. Last year, the students work- ed in Edmonton, Calgary, Banff and Fort Saskatchewan to pro- vide assistance to persons who did not qualify for legal aid and could not afford a lawyer. About 50 students were in- volved in the project.

The amentmenl, which also would benefil younger workers, include eliminating the co-called three-year rule.

The president-elecl of Ihe Al- berta Medical Associalion said that if instituted, the continuing education requirment would af- fect all physicians. It might also include a med- ical audit Ihrough which the competence of doctors would be assessed, he said in an Interview. While he thought the idea was a good one, it would be difficult to establish. MAJOR PROBLEM Dr. Oshiro said he does not know how the programs mighl be salisficd, but "maybe every three years physicians should spend three weeks in a major hospital to get caught up Ihe lalesl procedures." The major problem was find a plan lhat was "fair and jusl lo all physicians." He said rural doctors may find it al- most impossible lo leave Ihcir praclice untended for any length of lime. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta is con- sidering asking the provincial government for changes in the Medical Professions Act that would give it the power lo re- quire continuing education as a condition to licencing. Ihe work force for Ihree years before becoming eligible for the subsidized course. Mr. Mackasey told the Cons mons that the rule, in force since 1967, was designed to give priority to older workers whose jobs disappeared under automa- tion. It had accomplished this ob- ject but young workers and women wanting to relurn lo work were discriminated against by il. The amendments also will allow the manpower department lo bolster ils on-the-job Iraining program and to tnler into nego- tiations with groups of employ, ers for each training. Mr. Mackasey said the nego- tiations with employee groups are aimed at improving skills of dockworkers since the need for unskilled stevedores is dimish- ing.
