Amoco's action is no means and reflects the mood of thinking throughout the industry in Canada said John S. president of the Canadian Petroleum Association. Other companies could follow he said. In at least three other major companies have publicly stated that had the proposed federal budget been they would have been forced to freeze or suspend their spending programs.
