Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, May 15, 1972 THE LETHBRIDO! HEPAID 9 Mount Mount Hansen MOUNTAINS NAMED Map gives names and loca- tions of five Yukon mountain peaks named after five mem- bers of the Yukon Field Force who died while serving in the territory. The force was the first Canadian military unit to serve north of the 60th parallel. The peaks are along the route travelled by the force in 1898 near the junction of the Yukon and Pelly Rivers as they moved supplies and equipment to their post at Fort Selkirk in the Yukon Territory. The force assisted the Northwest Mounted Police to maintain order during the 1898 gold rush. Governnnml has siliuillon in luind No trade war expected By BUD JORGENSEN Canadian 1'rrss Slnff Writer The reports from Ottawa and Washington may look Like the beginnings of a trade war but Canadian businessmen believe the government lias the situa- tion well in hand. Business optimism got off to a good start during the past week with announcements in the fed- eral budget of tax cuts and ac- celerated depreciation schedules for manufacturing and process- ing businesses. But later in the week there was an announcement that Washington plans to consider special duties on imports from a Canadian-based tire manufac- turer. "There's hardly any doubt that (U.S. Treasury Secretary) C o n n a 11 y is applying the an industry associa- tion official said The U.S. government also an- nounced the same day that it preferred an all-Alaska route for an oil pipeline over a route through Canada There was also an announce- ment from Washington on that day also on increases in oil im- ports from Canada which were lower than businessmen had an- ticipated. CUT CORPORATE TAX The cut in the top rate of cor- porate tax to 40 per cent from 49 for manufacturing and proc- essing industries was part of a package designed to increase Canadian competitiveness abroad. Finance Minister Turner said the moves were partly a reaction to recent legis- lation in the U.S. designed to give its exporters an edge. The countervailing duties being considered in Washington concern imports from Michelin tire plants in Nova Scotia. Con- struction of the plants was fi- nanced in part by government grants. The industry association offi cial said the announcement on Michelin was not a surprise. There had been speculation that the TJ.S. government would take some type of action against what it'considered unfair sup- port for an exporter. However, the timing on the announcement from Washington appears to be more than coinci- dental. Despite the sparring between Washington and Ottawa, the two governments do not appear anx- ious to breach trade relations. One reason is that neither side wants a fight with its neighbor in an election year. An electiton is scheduled in the U.S. and expected in Canada. ''Neither government wants a confrontation right the in- dustry association official said. "There is a sort of nagging con- cern (among Canadian busi- nessmen) about what might happen later." Part of the confidence that an uneasy status quo will be main- tained stems from tJie fact that the economies of the two coun- tries are moving strongly ahead. Any blanket restrictions on manufacturers in Canada would bounce hack to Washington In the form of complaints from U.S. companies with subsidiar- ies here. The tax cuts in the budget did not distinguish between Cana- dian- and foreign-owned compa- nies and that makes it difficult to accuse Canada of being pro- tectionist. A Irade association official says the major industrial pow- ers have been lenient with Can- ada in past trade negotiations because it was a small country. But, now Canada has the sixth largest trading the U.S., the United Kingdom, West Germany, Japan and other countries are less agreeable. U.S. trade officials concede privately that Canadian negotia- tors have been the toughest of any country in recent trade talks, the trade association rep- resentatitve said. "This fellow Pepin (the fed- eral industry, trade and com- merce minister, Jean-Luc Pepin} is really a remarkable person. He can charm them in two languages."
