The department of industry, trade and commerce is sched- uled to become Commerce Canada and the tourist bureau Tourism Canada.

Some some listening, and ,1 program th.n [lie caljinel Ijclure the year is out is the legal goof in Prime Minister Triidciiii's office that created 21! parliamentary sec- retaries when only 27 arc al- lowed by law. Mr. Trudeau had to ask Ian j Watson, Liberal MP for La- prairic, to .surrender ,his ap- pointment as parliamentary secretary to Revenue Minister Herb Gray after holding the post only six hours. Mr. Trudeau wants to make it up to Mr. Watson, inform- ants say, and will re-appoint Mr. Watson at the earliest op- portunity. This will mean creating a vacancy among parliamen- tary secretaries. Sources say Ihis may be done by making Air. .Mahoney a minister of state with special responsibil- ity in the finance department. Mr. Mahoney has been help- ing Mr. Benson with legisla- tion for changes in the income tax system and with the gov- ernment's current economic difficulties. The cabinet now numbers 30. The barnyard epithet has relumed to the Commons after a brief respite.

T r a d e Minister Jean-Luc Popin has (old the Commons that one of the irritants in Canada-U.S. trading relations is the small consumption in this country of bourbon, the self-styled American national alcoholic beverage. The U.S. is annoyed that Canada earned S1C5 million last year selling rye whisky in the U.S. while the U.S. picked up only SI.2 million selling bourbon to Canadians. This is a long-standing complaint to American distilleries. The Aug. 15 U.S. surtax on imports applies lo Canadian rye whisky. Puckish Melvin McQuaid, Conservative MP for the Prince Edward Island riding of Cardigan, wanted to know about a government contract for hearing aids. Had they been purchased for cabinet ministers? Supply Minister James Richardson said they are for use in veterans hospitals. Mr. McQuaid also was in- formed that Mr. Richardson's department recently placed an order for 7.392 wastepapcr baskets for use in government offices.

"Every year we have had Ihis problem of keeping bears and people said Mr. Howard, "and with live trap- ping it was getting to be a pretly expensive business." He said that Ihi.s year it ap- peared the government would have to kill about 30 of the "problem bears" which ven- tured beyond the garbage (lump into the lown. Brian Davies, of Krederic- ton. N.B.. executive director of the International Fund for Animal Welfare, has volun- teered money lo airlift the bears away from the townsile lo more isolated surroundings. Mr. Howard said the bears would be tranquillized and then transported by commer- cial aircralt to an area just inside the Ontario border to the southeast.
