Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Wednetday, October 13, 1971 Sharp: Canada considers options regarding U.S. trade relations OTTAWA (CP) Canada is considering ;i n u m b c r of op- tions the country's relationship with the United vStaies, hut a common market approach to trade is not one of them, K.xtcmal Affairs Minister Mitchell .Sharp says. Sppakini! on Hie C'TV network program Question Period, Mr. Olds woman remanded in shooting OLDS (CP) Frances Emily Jackson, 62, of this district, has been remanded on a charge of attempted murder in the shoot- mg of her husband. Frank Jackson, 65, was in se- rious condition in hospital at Calgary following the shooting on a farm 14 miles southwest of here. RCMP said a shotgun was in- volved in the incident. Sharp said a Canacla-U.S. com- mon market arrangement would have at least one "very serious disadvantage." "A n exclusive relationship with the United States would tend to compromise our political independence." Although such a trading rela- tionship had much to commend it economically, the issue boil- ed down to a political argu- ment. "Do the people of Canada want to put themselves into a position of entering into an ex-' elusive arrangement with the i United States where the major! decisions would be made in i Washington affecting directly i the Canadian Personally, Mr. Sharp said he felt such an arrangement would j hamper Canada's freedom of i action. I "We should retain sufficient j control that we can deal other countries as well." Mr. S h a r p said the govern- ment is considering its rela- tionship with the U.S. in light of that country's drift toward pro- tectionism and domestic eco- nomic belt-lightening policies. The cabinet, he said, is look- ing at options that range from a trade war on one extreme to free trade on the other. He said bolli possibililies are unlikely. A possible middle ground might be a series of bilateral agreements with the U.S. and Canada's other trading part- ners. Such action would represent a move away from current multilateral arrangements in which Canada and the U.S. now are involved internationally. Although all options present difficulties, Mr. Sharp said it is important for all Canadians to consider Uic alternatives. "If we have to move off in a different direction it m u s t be not on a partisan basis but on the basis of general popular support." Mr. Sharp said Canada is not considering any action against foreign companies operating in Canada. No crush of Mr. K admirers to see his cemetery plot For COUNCIL VOTE Services centre given grant OTTAWA (CP) Boyle Street Community Services Centre in Edmonton is to K- ceive to establish a cen- Irally located community cen- tre, the health department an- nounced here. The centre is to provide drop- in and information facilities, a housing registry, a job-locating j service, a healtn clinic, legal services and counselling for al- coholism and drug abuse. Additional services to be pro- vided at a later date include an aid centre for ex-convicts, rec- reational programs, and com- munity services dealing with special problems faced by na- tive peoples. MOSCOW (AP) There is no crush of admirers plunging down the long alleys of Novod- evichy Cemetery to the ragged hedge and dark brick wall at the war end where Nikita Khrushchev's successors decid- ed he must lie. An old woman at the gate handles inquiries with a wave of her arm. "Down there; straight on to the she says. Do many ask? "Not so she replies. On the Saturday four weeks after the death of Khrushchev, there were only occasional vis- itors to the grave, with its plain marble headstone. There were a few women with string bags and men who kept their cloth hats tugged down on their heads as they surveyed the grave and a photograph of Krushchev set atop the head- stone. Te grave already has an air of neglect. On top, in damp dis- array, are potted chrysanthe- mums, gladiolus, pans i e s and violets. A gravedigger said Khrush- chev's son, Sergei, has been the only member of the family to return since the funeral Sept. 13. Sergei came back nine days after his father's death. In the Russian Orthodox Church it is believed that the soul, having been judged, takes up residence in heaven or hell on the ninth day. By all evi- dence Klirushchevs are atheists and the visit probably was just obedience to a custom now empty of religious meaning. Long before, Khrushchev had been judged by the men in the Kremlin who toppled him from power in 1964 and had been found wanting. No state tribute was hit at death: a few words in the Com- munist party newspaper Pravda about the passing of "personal pensioner" Khrushchev and pri- vate burial with no official rep- resentatives, only family and friends.

IN YOUR IETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE Retail sales show increase OTTAWA (CP) Canadian retail sales totalled in August this year, an increase of 8.3 per cent from August 1970, Statistics Canada reported Tuesday. Sales increased in all trades, the statistics bureau said in a preliminary report, with gen- eral merchandise stores show- ing the greatest increase. Sales were up in all provinces. No de- tailed figures were released. "Nothing that has come be- fore us by way of any studies or any well-supported consid- erations has led us to believe, that a crackdown on foreign ownership in Canada would serve in the Canadian inter- est." Mr. Sharp said the recent U.S. economic policy decisions specifically the 10 per cent supplementary duty on imports been levelled at Canada simply because the country is doing well economically. "We nevertheless get hit hard simply because we have been doing relatively well that's unnatural." Mr. Sharp also said he sees no immediate possibility of Canada developing a market comparable with that of the United States. Canada would continue to look for ways to penetrate the North American market on the best terms possible without losing its independence.
