Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, May 11, 1973 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD 19 Canada given mixed rating on trade talks WASHINGTON Treasury Secretary George Shultz gave Canada a mixed rating yesterday on trade ne- gotiations, accusing Ottawa of being unresponsive in reducing trade barriers so far but setting out a positive picture of future prospects. His views were given to chairman Wilbur Mills and the House of Representatives ways and means committee of Con- gress as top administration offi- cials pressed for pasage of a new trade reform bill that would give President Nixon wide-ranging powers to nego- tiate cuts in trade barners with American trading partners. Concerning trade negotiations since the United States dollar was first devalued in Decem- ber, 1971, Schultz said the United States has had "some success with Japan and West- ern Europe. "We have had really no re- sponse from the he added. MUCH IN COMMON But he said that the U.S. has a "tremendous amount in com- mon' with Canada and a "gi- gantic" exchange of trade. "We know there are large sources of energy in Canada and we would like to be reci- pients of some of that." The Canadian government is anxious to promote its manufac- turing sector and "would like access to our markets' for its manufacturing production, he said. Asked whether the president's proposed trade bill would strengthen the U.S. position in negotiations with Canada, Shultz replied: "Yes, I think this legislation will strengthen our hand around the world." Referring to his recent meet- ing here with Finance Minister John Turner and Trade Minis- ter Alastair Gillespie, Schultz said: "These seemed to be people we can work with "We had a period when the Canadians were cussing us and we were cussing them. I think that pe- riod has about stepped." A Canadian embassy official monitoring Wednesdays hear- ings said Canadian representa- tives had circulated word to U.S. government departments concerned with trade that re- cent reductions in Canadian tar- iffs "were intended to be a helpful contrbitution in present situation." 1971 Skylark Deluxe Camper FOR SALE-Contact: 1616 24th ST.

Gov't to follmv U.S. lead in auto emission standards By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) The federal jovernment plans to continue "ollowing the United States lead in auto emission cautiously, says' Environment Minister Jade Davis. don't see the end of the- reat at all does the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Mr. Davis said. The environment minister aid that it is "hard for politi- cians to be adamant" when even environmental experts are uncertain about final standards for exhaust emission standards. He was speaking at a news conference concluding a two- day closed meeting of fsderal and provincial environment niinisters here. The conference dealt with such topics as auto emission standards, national water quality standards, indus- trial pollution control and the government's proposed environ- mental contaminants bill. Mr. Davis said that the fed- eral government intends to wait until the last possible moment before setting final emission standards. STANDARDS RELAXED The minister noted that the EPA has recently eased its standards and delayed imple- mentation of the deadline for meeting the limits. Automobile manufacturers in the U.S. now will have until 1976, rather than t3 cut carbon monoxide and hydrocar- bon emissions to 90 per cent be- low the standards sst in except in California. The origi- nal 1975 deadline will apply to California where asr pollution is considered worse than in other states. The EPA also has reduced re- quiremsnts for control of nitro- gen oxide emissions from au- tomobiles. 'There is a game going Mr. Davis said. "The public is insisting on better air quality in the cities and the auto manufac- turers are resisting the cost as- pect insofar as it relates to au- tomobiles." The environment minister said he "hesitates to get in the game on the side of the auto manufacturers." He did not ex- press his personal view. He said the federal govern- ment is following U.S. thinking critically. James Auld, Ontario environ- ment minister, once more ques- tioned whether U.S. standards should apply here. Mr. Davis said there are some suggestions that emission standards could be different In different parts of the country. There might be a need for rigid limits in cities like Toronto or Montreal where heavy traffic might create a serious smog problem. But in small cilies and rural areas these might be un- necessary. He said the general feeling at the conference seemed to be that there should be a joint fed- eral-provincial effort to estab- lish national water qualify standards. MYSTRY MAN BRANTFORD, Out.
