U.S. with tax OTTAWA If Ihf I'nilcd Stales imposes special duties on lire imports made by I he Midiclin Tire Co of Nova Scotia. Canada can impose spe- cial duties on U.S.-maric do- fcr.cc imports. Trade Minister Jc-.-in-Luc Pcpin said Friday. Interviewed after Commons questioning on the subject, Mr. Pepin said U.S. law permits special duties to be placcrl on fnrcipn-madc goods lliat have the advantage of an "export I bounty." The Americans were deciding whether Canadian regional de- velopment incentives lo Mi- cheliii c o n s I i I u I c an export bounty. Rut if the U.S. decided llic incentives constituted an export bounty, Mr. Popin said, the Ca-! nadian government could de- j dare that heavy U S. subsidies (o U.S. defence industries are j also exporl bounties, and thus impose duties on U.S. defence j imports. j Asked whether (lie Canadian government had drawn tins to lectures hockey people, for fiul EDMONTON (CPl A par-j cut of a minor hockey league j player was acquitted of assault but" net before everyone, involv- ed gol a lecture on sportsman- j ship from Provincial Judge i John Coughlan.

SAYS U.S. SELECTIVE Mr. Pcpin added that he hopes no special duties will be imposed on Michelin products, because the U.S. has become "much more selective" in the: past few years in imposing Ihe special duties against export bounties. He asserted that Ihe U.S. is not opposed to the entire Cana- dian program of regional devel- opment incentives, but is just concerned over cases of assist- ance lo firms that export a great proportion of their prod- ucts. Mr. Pepin was asked whether llu's would not seriously impair Ihe regional development pro- gram m view of the fact that a great deal of regional develop- ment projects are export-ori- ented. lie replied that a number of projects are designed Lo serve only Ihe Canadian market, while others would export only I-T lo 20 per cnnl of their produc- tion. He did not say how many j projects were primarily export- oriented. Earlier, he told the Commons Ihe government is trying lo de- velop a plan under which tire manufacturers in Canada could import some vehicle tires duty- free.
