Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 23, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, Mgy 53, 1972 THE LETHBP.IDGE HERALD 23 Undeclared Caiiada-U.S. trade war under By IltVIXC C. WI1YNOT Canadian Press Business Editor Is there already an unde- clared trade war between Can- ada and the United States? The casual observer of the sit- uation might conclude from re- cent moves thai this could well be the case. Officially, govern- ment officials on both sides of the border say it isn't so. But some business men say the U.S. is already "applying Ihe screws" in an effort to force j If the position is still the same, o basis for re- Canada's hand in new talks.

The council's function Is to provide independent, publicly- announced counselling on the economy over the longer term, five years in advance or more, Mr. Reynauld lold the Com- mons finance committee last week that before taking on his new job, he discussed the coun- cil's work with both Prime Min- ister Trudeau and Simon Reis- man, deputy minister of fi- nance. It was Mr. Reisman thai told a parliamentary committee last year the council had become repetitious in its work and per- haps had outlived its usefulness.

It also is working on ways lo measure social progress. Ihe re- gional impacl of federal and i provincial growth and slabiliza has announced its worn pro- gram for several years ahead. One consequence of this should be that the program won't be duplicated in other government agencies, federal or provincial. WILL REPORT TN FALL The council so far has barely scratched the surface of its study into instabilities in the construction industry. Its main report this fall will Ire a survey of the economic outlook for Ihe balance of Ihe 1070s, with spe- cial attention to tax problems and regional disparities. Next year, the main report will be on the country's trading position in the world and with the U.S. in particular. The last such thorough-going study was made in the late 1950s by the Gordon Commission on eco- nomic prospects. The council also plans a study of the sources and diffusion of technological program suming the talks." What he appeared to be say- ing was that the U.S. wasn't budging from its demands and didn't intend to do so until il heard from Ottawa. Anc! one could read into his remarks that if any concessioas are to be made, they will have to come from Ottawa. U.S. APPLYING FORCE Is the U.S. already applying its economic muscle lo force these concessions? Some ob- servers say il is, and point to these recent U.S. moves to lend backing to this conclusion: investigalion lo deter- mine whether Canadian alumi- num ingots are being dumped in the U.S. That trade runs lo aboul 521G million a year. of a countervail- ig duly in lires from planls of lichelin Tires Manufacturing o. of Canada Ltd. u m p i n g investigations gainst Canadian sulphur im- orls, valued at 511 million a ear, and againsl polalo gran les, valued at more than SI million. special duty on Canadian ce cream sandwich wafers. rush by U.S. firms to take dvantage of the domestic inter- lational sales corporation cheme, which gives tax incen- ivcs to manufacture at home or export rather than Ihrough oreign subsidiaries.

Math contest winners named EDMONTON College placed first among Al- berta schools in an internation- al mathematics competition for Grade 12 students, college president Dr. Sherburne Mc- Curdy said here.

The compel ition, held in March, was sponsored by a lion programs and regional anc inlernalional movements of cap- ital. SUGGESTIONS PLANNED Under his chairmanship, Mr Reynauld says, the council wil no longer simply outline lh( problems il sees arising in lire future and suggesls a course o action. Instead, it will sugges alternative courses of action. And it will back up its studie with full data on the source o its information and how it ar i rived at its findings. There were questions in Ih committee about the possibilit of the council duplicating tli research work of the Bank o Canada, Uie finance departmen and other departments of eminent which deal with eco- nomic planning. Mr. Reynauld said, however, that the economic council is unique in thai all of its studies result in published reports, freely available to everyone in the government and outside it.
