Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta No turning back now: Britain on road toward Kurope North BEST FOOT FORWARD Chief Dan George, of Vancouver, B.C., steps forward to receive the Medal Service after being appointed to the Order of Can a ceremony at Government House in Otlav mony was a formal occasion and Chief George was re- splendent in full tradilional Indian regalia, including buck- skin footwear. ado in The cere- LONIJON The late Dean Achi'son once wrote that.

That role now seems I" have emerged. i he impressive II o u s c of Commons vole Thursday favor- ing Common Market entry sig- nifies that Britain is firmly on the road to Europe, with a ro- used personality related more to her European neighbors than those across the seas in the Commonwealth. Despite the impressive vic- tory lor Prime Minister Heath, indications arc that the British public is far Irom convinced that ils destiny lies with the Continent. But. there appears to be no turning back though the journey is till precarious. Gradually as Heath persists in his campaign to make Britain think Euro- pean, the general British reac- tion is likely to be more recep- tive. Itaditionally. Britain has maintained a position of aloof- ne's and independence. Her w it m relations to the Common- He ilth were borne out of a colo- nial empire. .Just as she always seemed to guard herself against European interference, Britain found that Europe was always suspicious of her intentions. That long period of mutual disliust appears to be disap- pearing. The growth of Euro- pean prosperity has impressed British industrialists. Many al- ternatives to Common Market membership, such as transat- hntic tree trade with Canada and the United States, have been considered only to be tossed aside as impracticable. At one time Britain took the initiative and offered two-way free trade with Canada only to find Canadians shrinking from the challenge that free trade would present to protected in- dustries. A role in Europe appears more reassuring for Britain. British industrialists are con- vinced that once they get in, they will be able to exert power- ful managerial influence on Eu- rope's future. It also appears likely that Eu- rope will absorb much of Brit- ain's concentration and energy.
