Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 6, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Moy 6, 197? THE IETHBRI0GE HERAID 9 Pepin issues warning to foreign companies OTTAWA (CP) Trade Min- ister Jean-Luc Pcpin issued an indirect wnrning I'Yiday 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 roll, 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 (hat all foreign takeovers of companies with assets of or annual IIBC Maoist Ferdman 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.

Mr. Pepin was asked in the Commons whether be will scl up a unit to have some surveil- lance over foreign takeovers which might take place before the bill becomes law. Tlie minister said the law would not be retroactive. "Bui expect that people who intend to 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 lo notify him before buying a Canadian company before the law came in, the minister said: "Prudence." BLOCKED TAKEOVERS The government has stepped in on major foreign takeovers before and prevented them, ho noted. He cited the govern- menl's refusal lo permil Ameri- can inleresls lo purchase Deni- son Mines Lid. and similar in- lervenliou when American in- terests were negoliating lo buy Home Oil Co. which was eventually sold to Consumers Gas Co., a Canadian corpora- lion. The situation has not changed, Mr. Pepin said, and the govern- ment would move in lo prevent takeovers on an ad hoc basis again it it found such a move necessary.

A reporter suggested the gov- ernment probably will not step in on anything other than unu- sually major lakeovers hefora its bill becomes law. -Mr. Pepin agreed. Asked whether he expects a rash of takeovers of firms of other sizes, the minister said: "1 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- i than 200 parts per j million under the food and drug permitted Canada, he said.

The U.S. case, filed by a citi- ztns' group connected with Ralph Nader's consumer organ- izations, alleges the additives combine in foods with other sub- stances, called amines, to pro- duce a cancer-causing com- pound. Dr. Chapman said sodium ni- trite and nitrate do combine to produce nitrosamines, but said these are ties." in "minute quanti- VAMCOUVER (CP) A British Columbia Supreme Court judge Thursday fount the Vancouver Sun had libeller! the two sons o!

The judge ordered The Sun Publishing Co. Ltd., Pacific Press Ltd. Publisher Stuart Kealc and managing editor Wil- liam Gait to pay Russell J. and William R. Bennett each.

While be thought Ihe Idea was a good one, il would be difficult to establish. MAJOR PROBLEM Dr. Oshiro said he does not inow how the programs might be satisfied, but "maybe every hrce years physicians should spend Ihree weeks in a major lospilal lo gel caugbl up on he latest procedures." The major problem was lo find a plan that was "fair and jusl to all physicians." He said rural doctors may find it al- most impossible to leave their praclice uiilcnded for any [englli of lime.

Mr. Mackasey told the Ootn mons that the rule, in force since 19G7, 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 return to work were discriminated against by it. The amendments also will allow the manpower department to bolster its on-the-job training program and to enter into nego- tiations with groups 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.
