Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, Moy 15, 1972 THE LFTHBRIDGt HEFALB 3 MOUNTAINS NAMED Map gives names and loco- lions of five Yukon mounlain 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 norlh of the 60lh parallel. The peaks are along the route travelled by the force in 1698 near the junction of the Yukon and Pelly Rivers as they moved supplies and equipment to their post al Fort Selkirk in the Yukon Territory. The force ossisted the Northwest Mounted Police to maintain order during the 1898 gold rush. GoverniiHHil. lias situation in hand No trade war expected By BUD JORCJENSKM Canadian Press Slnft Writer The reports from Ottawa and Washington may look like the beginnings of a trade war but Canadian businessmen believe (he government lias the situa- tion well in hand. Business optimism got otf to a good start during the past week with announcements in the fed- eral budget of lax cuts and ac- celerated depreciation schedules for manufacturing and process- ing businesses. But later in the week there was an announcement that Washington plans lo consider special duties tin imports from a Canadian-based lire 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 Irom 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 competiliveness abroad. Finance Minister Turner said the moves were partly a reaction lo 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 indublry association offi cial snid the announcement on Michelin was not a surprise. There had heen speculation that the U.S. government would take some type of action against what it considered unfair sup- port (or an exporter. However, Uie timing on the announcement from Washington appears lo he 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 neighhor 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 he main- tained stems from the fact lhal 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 hudget did not distinguish between Cana- dian- and foreign-owned compa- nies and that makes it difficult to accuse Canada of being pro- tectionist. A trade 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, lie can charm them in two languages."
