Gas controls in Canada possibility OTTAWA (CP) Energy Minister Donald Macdonald, un- der pressure again in the Com- mons Wednesday to limit gaso- line exports, ssid controls are a definite possibility if exports to the United States threaten sup- plies in this country. "If we find the outward flow continuing to increase I think we're going to have to move in with he said outside the House, adding that the government should know by mid-June. The pressure in Parliament has come from the New Demo-, crats, mainly T. C. Douglas (XaiK'inio Couichan -The He said Wednesday that supplies in Canada have dwindled to the point where ma- jor independent retailers are closing their stations or cancell- ing expansion plans. Mr. Douglas said 4.1 million pallons of gasoline was ex- ported from Ontario in April, 11 times the province's total for all of last year. Mr. Macdonald said Canadian refineries have been told do- mestic demands must be met first. And the National Energy Beard was watching exports closely. the minister said, "the basic problem is the tight inter- national supply situation and the inability of these firms to buy refined gasoline abroad as they have been doing for the past several years." West Liberal problems aired by party leaders OTTAWA (CP) Western Liberal leaders attempted to dig post holes for Mure party fence mending in the West Wednesday at a series of talks with federal Liberals. Purpose of the Wiretap evidence disclosed By MOTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The Canadian government has evidence of listening devices being directed against some of its missions abroad, External Affairs Min- ister Mitchell Sharp told the Commons Wednesday. He said it would not be in the national interest to go into de- tail on this evidence or how or where the government obtain- ed it. The minister was asked if the government had ever be- come aware of third parties listening to telephone conversa- tions to or from any buildings occupied by Canadian foreign missions. He replied in a written an- swer: "No. Due to the ease with which telephone conversa- tions can be monitored, mem- bers of the Canadian foreign service exercise caution and discipline in the use of the tele- In the Commons Mr. Sharp also said he has received no information that would back up the allegation made in Wash- ington that a secret plan made in the White House included a proposal to break into the Ca- nadian embassy in Washing- ton. The report from Washing- ton was that while no such plan was put into operation its aim had been to determine what aid if any. the Canadian government was providing to American draft dodgers. Mr. Sharp said if the Ameri- cans wanted to know about Canada's policy toward draft dodgers they had only to ask. "I hope they do better than we do when they retort- ed G. W. Baldwin (PC Peace with the federal party caucus in the morning and Prime Minis- ter Trudeau and cabinet minis- ters in the to es- tablish parameters for a meet- ing of western Liberals in Van- couver July 13-15 and a Calgary conference on western Eco- nomic opportunities July 24-26. The Liberal meeting was moved ahead from original dates of June 22-24. The three An- derson of British Columbia, Bob Russell of Alberta and Dave Steuart of they came to the sessions to help the federal party people understand conditions in the West. Liberals were soundly trounced in the region during the last federal election and form no provincial adminis- tration there. Mr. Anderson said he sees the Vancouver Liberal conference as a "great deal more impor- tant" than the federal provin- cial one in Calgary later in the month. The Liberal party, he said, "performs the old brokerage function that keeps the country running." There would be a greater sense of working to- ward something concrete in Vancouver than there would be at a conference with a number of premiers interested in grand- standing. STEUART AGREES Mr. Steuart tended to agree. After the morning meeting he said the Calgary conference would only help the West if the New Democrat premiers of B.C. and Saskatchewan "don't louse it up.'1 "They don't want it to suc- ceed because they'd lose their whipping federal gov- he said. "If we ever got fair freight rates I don't know what Pre- mier Blakeney of Saskatch- ewan would talk about. He'd be gagged for the rest of his politi- cal life." Mr. Steuart, leader of 16 Lib- erals in the 60-seat provincial legislature, said he hoped the meeting "would be a good thing." Recent moves to de- centralize federal operations to the West and other regions had helped strengthen the gov- ernment's position. Mr. Russell, who holds no seats in Alberta and now is in- volved in a byelection battle to get one for himself, said he left the campaign trail because it was important that easterners understand the problems of say, discriminatory freight rates in the West. At the end or the day, Mr, Russell said he was confident the government would "take some definite action" to deal with the freight rate structure in the near future. He complained that the rates. which are less for shipping raw materials out of the West than they are for shipping out manu- factured goods, tend to encour- age industry in other regions. Young people from the Prairies were following industries out of the West. All agreed that the Liberal star was rising in the region be- cause the government was pay- in? more attention to its con- cerns. Weather and road report SUNRISE FRIDAY SUNSET Indian Act changes suggested Drug company faces charges WASHINGTON (Reuter) A major pharmaceutical house was charged here with 60 violations arising from the use of a contaminated intravenous solution which allegedly led to 50 deaths. A federal grand jury in j Raleigh, N.C., brought down the indictments against Abbott Lab- oratories of Chicago, charging the firm with shipping adtil- tered and misbranded in- travenous solution drugs which were hazardous to public health. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA> re- ported more than 350 cases of blood poisoning, as well as the 50 deaths, during the solution's use in late 1970 and early 1971. A country-wide recall of the product was started in March, 1971, the FDA said. Lelhbridge..... Pincher Creek Medicine Hat Edmonton...... Grande Prairie Banff......... Calgary Victoria Penticton.....
