Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Boycott hits hard Europe eyes Canada oil By STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA As if Canada didn't have oil troubles at least some Europeans are wondering whether Canada can supply them with oil in times of crisis. This interest in Canadian oil was seen by at least one Cana- dian MP at the recent meeting of NATO parliamentarians in Turkey. And it was brought up by a Dutch legislator at a meeting of fhe members of the European Parliament and the external affairs and justice committees of the Commons here Thur- sday. Michael Forrestall Dartmouth-Halifax men- tioned the oil interest when discussing in an interview the I NATO meeting which he and 15 other MPs attended for almost two weeks. Another Conservative who George Hees mentioned another matter that dealt with resentment by Europeans about the small size of Canadian forces in Europe and their obsolete tanks. Mr Hees said it is that Canadians are using obsolete Centurian tanks Look to Canada Mr. Forrestall said the thought that Canada might supply oil to a Europe boycotted by angry Arabs in the future was mentioned by delegates from Italy and the Netherlands In the past the Arab world had been regarded as a stable source of oil but that no longer was the case. Nor was South America considered to be such an assured source. There was no concrete proposal concerning Canadian oil I any answer from Mr Forrestall although he said the matter probably will be pursued at i luture meetings He said he talked a bit of the possibility of liquefied natural gas from the Arctic being sent to Europe. The Dutch legislator at Thursday's meeting did not pursue the question of supplies of Canadian oil for Europe He just asked whether that could be a way of greater co-operation between Canada and the European Economic Community. Holland has been hard hit by the present reduction of supp- ly by Arab producers. Mr. Conservative defence said the question of tanks was on many minds at the NATO meeting because of i the battles then in progress in the Middle East. Results disastrous ij He said in a tanks in which the govern- ment would send our troops into battle would be demolished in short order by the Russian T-62 with obvious disastrous results. continue to refuse to replace these worn out and obso- lete tanks with the best tank German Leop- only be described as criminal negligence The armed forces were to have started replacing their iaged Centurions this year But Defence Minister James Richardson announced that the replacement program will be delayed another three years while the matter is recon- i-sidered. Mr Hees said the Europeans are concerned that the Cana- jidian forces are the weak spot in the whole NATO system. His statement put it this way refusal of the Cana- government to maintain this reduced force in a state of effectiveness is increasing European and is reducing our chances of being accepted in some of special relationship with the European Economic necessary to expanded trade with a group of which account for 50 per cent of world Europeans fear Tokyo oil bid 6 R I S M C O l_u M B I A POINT ROBERTS LONDON As the world fuel shortage tightens in the wake of the Middle East war.

Informed sources here said this concern was a significant factor influencing the decision of'most NATO'countries in Europe not to leap to the assistance of the United States and Israel during the conflict. The Europeans fear that Ja- which stands to lose more than any other country from the curtailment of Arab oil will seize on Arab-U S hostility to improve its position at the expense of other consuming countries. This could be done if the Japanese offered some arrangement to buy from the Arabs whatever surplus may accumulate as a result of their reduction in supplies to the which in some cases reaches 26.5 per cent They might also offer widespread financial and technological aid One effect of this would be to insulate the Arab states against any marked revenue loss as a result of reduced sales to the West. then be in an even stronger position to demand major concessions in any Mideast peace settlement. Perhaps most if and when the curtailment policy is a large share of Arab oil which had been going to the West would have been redirected to which imports 86 per cent of its oil from the Middle East There are fears here that Japanese oil companies might decide to use the break between the Arabs and many Western states to negotiate longer-term contracts for massive oil forcing prices up even further and reducing available supplies for the rest of the world. Earlier this Nakasone Japan's minister for international began a serious attempt to improve the country's relations with the oil-producing states. He said Japan was keeping its hands not helping Israel-in the Middle and promised widespread economic aid to Iran and several other states and they appeared impressed.
