Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, October 3, 1973 LETHBRIDGE HERALD NATO setup review advocated OTTAWA (CF) Legislators from eight of the 15 NATO countries have proposed co-ordination of energy and foreign in- vestment policies by Europe, North America and Japan, and a review ot NATO's defence strategy in Europe. The so-called Committee of United States has two members. Canada and six others one in its report released Tuesday that continued NATO strength is necessary to win relaxed relations with the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact. The report, two years in the making, was submitted to Sir John Peel, president of the North Atlantic Assembly, which will debate the report when it meets in Ankara, Turkey. Oct. 21 to 27. Senator John Aird tario I, Canadian member on the committee, said he ex- pects the report to influence future policies of the alliance. The report cites the growing demand for oil in all countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and in Japan, and notes the'-r dependence on supplies from the Middle East and Persian Gull. UNITY IMPERATIVE "In light ol these considera- tions, the committee believes that it is imperative for the European Community, the other countries of Western Europe. Japan and North America to bring together their individual energy policies and strategies." The committee also says that "an understanding should be reached among the in- dustrialized countries on foreign investment policies. Multinational tirms have brought great benefits, along with problems for governments involved." "The international system is lacking in agreed rules and principles in this important area. Steps should be taken promptly to remedy this lack The committee, chaired by U S. Senator Jacob Javits, says improved relations between NATO and the War- saw Pact countries "lessens in no way the need for continu- ing the Atlantic Alliance." Now that the Soviet Union equals the United States in nu- clear power, NATO's strategy of flexible response should be reviewed, the committee says. Flexible response involves choosing a NATO reaction to military aggression depending on the form of that aggression MAY BE OBSOLETE Senator Aird said in an interview that NATO should particularly examine the use ot tactical nuclear small weapons in the battlefield He said development of new kinds of non-nuclear weapons- including lasers and remote-controlled mis- have made tac- tical nuclear weapons ob- solete. The report says the major threat to Western Europe has shifted from massive aggres- sion "to types of threat in which external political pres- sure is likely to be more fre- quent than the overt use oi military force It says that makes a co-ordi- nated security policy for NATO even more imperative. Canada to sign polar bear pact By DAVE BLAIKIE OTTAWA (CP) Five countries, including Canada, are negotiating an agreement to protect the endangered polar bear. Now in final drafting stages, the agreement is expected to be signed next month in Norway by representatives of Canada. Norway. Denmark, the Soviet Union and the United States. The only countries with polar bear populations, they have been negotiating the agreement for several years. Conservationists estimate there are fewer than 20.000 po- lar bears left in the world, more than half of them in Northern Canada. The agreement is expected to lean heavily on co-operative management techniques and related matters such as the preservation of denning habitats Canada's best selling Vodka at the popular price Sources say it won't bring an end to polar bear hunting, but each country has agreed to stop hunting the huge mam- mals on Arctic ice fields that run out beyond their territorial limits. However, it is not clear yet how far territorial jurisdic- tion will extend for all countries. Canada claims a 100-mile offshore limit for Arctic pollution control. Distances vary in the other countries. A compromise is expected when the parties meet for the final negotiating session in November. About 500 polar bears are killed annually in Canada un- der a quota system ad- ministered by the Northwest Territories government. Some countries, including the Soviet Union urged a total hunting ban, but Canada refused, arguing that its hunt is well-controlled and does not threaten the bear's survival It also refused to abolish the traditional hunting rights of natives Polar bear hunting is re- stricted to natives except for a handful of expensive sport- hunting at the discretion of northern settlement coun- cils. This so-called sport hunt was approved by the territorial government in 1966 as a means of raising incomes for Eskimos but has provoked headlines and controversy ever since. Fewer than 20 bears were shot by sport hunters last year and there is division among the natives over the merits of the scheme. Inuit Tapirisat of Canada, the national Eskimo brotherhood, adopted a resolu- tion at its annual meeting this year calling for abolition of the sport hunt, but urging fewer restrictions on native hunting. Protection pact nears Canada and four other countries are expected to sign an agreement in Nor- way next month to provide protection for the endan- gered polar bear. The agr- eement, now in final dra- fting stages, is to be sign- ed by Canada, Norway, Denmark, the Soviet Uni- on and the United States.
