To many voters, the canvas seems marked not so much for them as for export to the United States, "The country (Canada) lias achieved the self-assur- ance and tlic courage ot a fully mature actor on the world he said the other day in Toronto. noted his government's initiative ill establish- ing full diplomatic relations v.ith the Peoples Republic of China and added: "Besides starting a train of events which has taken the Chinese government into the United Nations and taken President Nixon to said the prime min- ister, "Canada has a headstart of immense value in developing relations of Jill kinds with China." His. moves, including an. exchange of visits with Premier Alexei N. Kosygin, to build relations with the Soviet Union, Canada's ''neighbor across the also highlights the portrait. And so do his efforts to sharpen Canada's image in English speaking nations through active support of the in French-speaking countries through his efforts to up- grade the status of the French language across Canada. Blur on portrait But the relationship the U.S., Trudeau's "ele- phant" that is Canada's neighbor and largest trading partner remains a blur on a Trudeau's portrait. To some Canadians this is a blemish depriving the portrait of flesh and bleed. To others it is a mark of na- lioiral slrensth and shows Canada no longer considers herself a dependent neighbor. "By diversifying our interests, first from Britain many years ago, more recently from the Canada has not forfeited our friendship with Trudeau said. Canadian-U.S. friendship, in the sense of mutual goodwill between people, is probably as strong as ever. But the prime minister and President Nixon are closing out a four year relationship without forging an offi- cial friendship adefjunle to the smooth neighborly con- duct of increasingly complex affairs. When the emotions, here on Oct. 30 and hi the U.S. on Nov. 7, are over, a period of hard bargaining artist hepiii in the view of .seasoned observers. Olvin 0.

The 15135 automotive trade agreement, which pro- vides for duty frca movement of most new cars and parts either way over the border, is only the foremost of a long list of "urgent1' disputes and grievances sub- ject lo bargaining. A year ago John B. Connally, then score tiny of tiie treasury', insisted that the pact ba renegotiated to take out certain provisions that mado Hie ;tereemenl operate chronirnHy in Canada's favor. Canada, citing a long record of deficit trade with the. U.S., objected. This campaign lime, then, is no lime to "review" hard positions on (he auto pact.
