Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta SUNN? FORECAST HIGH SATURDAY NEAR 70. OirLxV U.S. throws PEHN By DAN TUJINEK OTTAWA (CP) Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin looked bruised but still pugnacious at the end ot Thurs- day's round of the O-rjidian-U.S. economic prize fight, during which the U.S. threw all the big punches. Mr. Pepin told the Commons Canada will lose Am- erican automotive investment because of U.S. tax sub- sidies to its car exporters through new domestic inter- national sales corporations, or DISC. He then warned Canadian subsidiaries of U.S.-con- trolled auto companies that Ottawa expects them to use tax concessions in last Monday's budget to rc- fliKT. their prices to the Canadian consumer relative lo the prices the U.S. consumer pays. This would weaken lire Canadian market for rars the U.S. parent companies might try lo export hero through their DISC operations. Ford already IBS be- gan such ejqwrts. He also saJd lhaf while the governmrnt feels this budgetary breaks put Canadian-based manufac- lurers on an equal footing with foreign exporters, it. would consider further measures to combat foreign ex- port-subsidy programs if they proved to be necessary. More punches thrown Earlier In the day, the U.S. govornment Ivl. the Canadian chin with other trade punches. Washington announced it intends to go ahead with a Irans-Alaska oil pipeline, despite Ottawa's argument that Alaska oil should be piped along the proposed Mackenzie River valey route to U.S. markets. The construction of a trans-Alaska pipeline would mean shipping oil along the British Columbia coast to Washington state, setting up the dacger ot oil spills in the Pacific. The U.S. treasury depart ment announced it is con- sidering countervailing duty on tires shipped to the U.S. from the Michelin tire plants in Nova Scotia becauso they have been subsidized by the Canadian govern- ment. The company recently annouced plans for 3 S41 million expansion program, 'which would be assisted by a S7.9 million economic incentives grant from the regional economic expansion department. Canada has 30 days to respond to the U.S. warn- ing. The only posiuvc glimmer N 1''V I'ai nirix and raised in ranrhn-s in Atbrn.i h r legislature hy Chaplin lire in Inn- fur piovinrinl lirain (Si!

Some of the changes resulted from increased shipping rates or higher wholesale prices from Canadian distilleries, the spokesman said. Tt was not known how many brands would be affected but the spokesman said the number of changes would be small "in comparison to the total number of brands carried." The changes were part of an annual adjustment made each June 1 when new price lists arc printed.

Steal QUEBEC (CP1 Industrial and government facilities, schools, hospitals, newspapers and radio stations were liil again today in Quehee., fouiiii riay nf a groundswell of lahoi unrest that hegan with impris- onment of three top provincial union leaders Tuesday. Reports of new walkouts and demonstrations came in hourly from areas of the province. The first death linked directly to ihe turmoil was reported today. A man struck by a car Wednesday ing a demonstration died over- night In Sept-lies, 30 miles north of Quebec Cily. The protests began with jail- ing of the three union leaders for contempt of court, but some local unions said they were pro- testing lagging contract talks. The situation was described as a "crisis" by one of two Quebec cabinet ministers who said they had withdrawn their resignations from Liberal Pre- mier Robert Bourassa's cabinet because of the labor trouble. The planned resignations had been linked to other matters in- volving constitutional dealings with the federal government. PAPERS CAN'T PUBLISH Montreal was without any of its six daily newspapers today afler walkouts bv vrriojs em- pi o y e e s of Ihe city's four French-language dailies and the two English-language ones. On the north shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, where demon- strators look over Sept-Ties ear- lier this week until police rein- forcements were flown in by Ca- nadian Armed Forces aircraft, there were reports of new walk- outs overnight and today by miners, construction workers and teachers al Sept-lies, Baie Comeau and HaiHcrive. Firebombs were thrown .u one metals company plant in Baie Comeau overnight and at a garage door on the property of Municipal Affairs Minister Maurice Tessier in Himouski, across the St. Lawrence Hiver from Biae Comeau. The, 1.000 employees of thfl Davie Shipbuilding Ltd. yards at Lauzon walked out today and primary and secondary schools in the Levis-Lauzon region and many schools at Sherbrooke, in the Eastern Townships, were closed by teacher walkouts. Other workers who joined the protest today included Montreal postal workers and blue collar workers in the same cily. DUMP NAILS ON ROADS Nails were dumped on Mont- real Island bridges Thursday, and this same tactic was used on Quebec C i t y -a r e a roads today, severely disrupting traf- fic flows in each case. Court proceedings at several Montreal courthouses were can. celled today ur.ti! Monday. The three acting leaders of common front of Quebec's three major labor federations met for two hours in jail Thursday with the imrpisoned federation presi- dents to discuss possible ap- peals by the latter against their one-year sentences. Details OD the talks were not available. LABOR REACTION Meanwhile, the isolation of the Quebec labor movement from organized labor in the rest ot Canada was painfully evident. Thursday as national and prount'ia! union leaders set about restraining lines of communication. A main concern expressed by national leaders in Ottawa was Ihe danger that the break- down in industrial relations in the province will explode into a genera! strike. Donald MacDonald, president of the Canadian Lr.bor Con- gress, described the Quebec as "tantamount lo chaos it's grim really.''
