NO SYMPATHY Take the public service strike ol April, Photographs appeared in almost every Canadian paper showing n deplorable stale in which Ihe strike had left seri- ously ill hospital patients. There appeared lo be no sympathy to- wards their plight from the union workers. Certainly a case [or hard criticism, you'd think. Not so. One prominent mem- ber of the Montreal communily suggested that the news media had blown certain incidents way out of proportion. What he thought should have been given equal play was the fact that large numbers of the citizens did volunteer to work in the hos- pitals in their free lime in an attempt to ease the pain and stress. Laudable, undoubledly. But was the criticism of the real culprits, the unions? Nowhere. Montrealcrs object to outsid- ers being parachuted into Ibcir province to take a look at (he situation. But lo many Western Canadians especially, a look would surely convince them that the persons with the objective i eyes and who see the true pic-' lure are those on the outside looking in.

Canada urged to exhibit its wares OTTAWA rCP) Canada has been inviled to organize an exhibition in Moscow during 1973-74 to display Canadian in- j dustrial achievements and po- tential trade opportunities. The invitation was made at a meeting here of the joint Canadian-Soviet commission on industrial applications of science and technology. In a news release, the com- j mission said Canadian-Soviet trade does not reflect its full potential. The commission has estab- lished two working agriculture, agricultural ma- chinery and processing equip- ment group, and a rail and air transport w i 111 meet before 197.1 j A protocol signed here by Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin and L.

The commission said new areas for co-operation include p re-fabricated buildings, air- craft, hydroelectric equipment and high-village transmission design.
