Adverse consequences on Canada's trade balance are likely from such a move, but the government doesn't seem to care." LEAVINCt CA.VMIA The conclusion that the wx tax legislation would make Ca- nadian muUinaiioiMl companies less competitive was drawn by most speakers on the interna- tional aspects of the bill, Four companies of varying sizes have decided to move to other countries hi recent weeks and each has .-aid it was be- cause of the tax bill. Interna- tional Utilities Corp. is moving its head office back to the United States after 11 years in Canada. Hunter Douglas Ltd. and Patino Mining Corp. are moving to Dutch territories and Interpool Lid. is going to the Bahamas. International Utilities was among the 10 largest Canadian companies hi terms of assets. The company has no direct Ca- nadian holdings but operates in Canada through subsidiaries.

Gordon Peel, past-president of the association, told the author- ity's public advisory committee that only "token'' fines were handed out against 11 U.S. moose hunters. Penalties ranging from to maximum provided for in the act. were levied against the hunters in Valleyvtew, 200 miles ncathwest of Edmonton. STIFFER PENALTIES In an interview, Deputy Min- ister V. A. Wood said the lands and forests department is re- viewing the penalty structure for illegal possession of game because of the Valleyview in- cident. Dr. Wood said an increase in the maximum fine of S300 is probable. The men were charged with not having the mandatory ser- vices of a guide and illegal pos- session of game. the act allows only one for c.ich hunter, wildlife officers confis- cated 15 from the men. Mr. Peel said wii'dlifc can't stand this typo, of hunting and baid the U.S. hunters might have been more humbled if fines were stiffer and their guns and vehicles were confiscated. CYPRESS VIOLATIONS However, he also pointed out that magistrates were often too lenient when dealing with charges under the Wildlife Act. The conservation autliority was told, Mr. Peel said, that 12 hunters wore recently charg- ed with poaching elk from Cy- press Hills Provincial Park, designated a wildlife sanctuary. They were fined each in Medicine Hat Courl, he said.
