24 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, November 26, 1970 OTTAWA COP) H is a "grand illusion" that Canada's, recent recognition of Commim- j ist China will enable it to form j s diplomatic bridge between PC- king and Washington, the Se- nate external affairs committee was told here. Mark Gayn, Toronto Star bu- reau chief in Hong Kong, also told the committee the recogni- tion, announced in October, would not necessarily lead to greater trade between Canada and China. j But the new relations were 1 important in establishing a; "line of contact" between China and the rest of the world. The "Taiwan by I which Canada left open China's j claims to tho Nationalist Chinese island of Formosa in i concluding relations with the mainland government, is being copied by other western conn-1 tries negotiating for mutual rec- ognition, Mr. Gayn said. But the notion that Canada's i presence in Peking could change relations was "very silly." MAO SAME MAN" i Mao Tse-tung, with whom he held a marathon 12-hour inter- view in 19-17, still believes in the historic conflict between capi- talist and Communist forces, Mr. Gayji said. It was inconceivable that China could somehow come to friendly relations with the United States, through diplo- macy alone. Relations could be established with the U.S. only if the U.S. "changes its political system- its political direction." Trade would not increase sig- nificantly through the new rela- tions because Canadian busi- nessmen have not shown much (nterest in dealing with China, and because, despite its huge population, China did not have the funds for major imports from the west. Because of growing domestic production, China's demand for Canadian wheat would not in- csease greatly from present lev- els, except in famine years. Mr. Gayn warned that Cana- dian diplomats in Peking will have only limited chances to meet Chinese workers or intel- lectuals' and even less chance to meet Chinese government lead- ers. Diplomats already in the capi- tal were restricted in travels outside the city and had access to only two Chinese newspapers. NOT HAPPY Tho correspondent expressed disappointment that the agree- ment to exchange diplomats had oot included an increased ex- change of journalists. He said he was not aware of censorship when reporting to Canada from Peking although "the censor is in your mind." Journalists could cover China with "considerable freedom" and there was "no need to he as current reports .often are. Senator Chesley Carter Newfoundland) asked whether the arrival in Ottawa of Chinese diplomats posed the threat of Maoist revolution in Canada, re- ferring to what Ire called sus- pected Maoist influence in Quebec terrorism. "Western Maoists do not have the slightest idea of what Maoism Mr. Gayn replied. Mao's philosophy of revolution could be applied only in Asia and had no application in west- era society. He "would not fear for a min- ute the arrival of Chinese diplo- mats and the distribution of badges and little red books." i Yli'l'IK Bettj f is one, of nine, imiynrally can- j did.ites running in Vani'iw- I vcr's line.
