(CP) Al- berta's 43 Indian chiefs will be asked to organize a provincial school boycott to protest federal Indian policies. Indian parents, students and chiefs attending a two-day meeting Wednesday at Blue Quills school near this north- eastern Albcrla community said the boycott will be needed if a commitment isn't received from Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien. About 200 students on Cold Lake and Kehewin reserves have been out of school for more than two weeks in protest and parents on the S'addle Lake reserve plan similar action Fri- day. Mr. Chretien has ordered im- provements to upgrade living conditions and education at Cold Lake and Kehewin but the Indi- ans say the money will be taken from other Indian projects. The boycott request will be presented to a three-day meet- ing of chiefs which starts Mon- day. CONTINUE BOYCOTT Wednesdays meeting also ap- proved a recommendation to continue the boycott at Cold Lake and Kehewin and to con- tinue "consultation meetings" at the Indian affairs office here. Last week students and their parents marched into the office and brought work to a stand- still. The Indians also will ask that the House of Commons standing committee on Indian affairs launch an investigation into problems tin Alberta reserves. Tom Barnelt, New Demo- cratic Parly member of Parlia- ment for Comox-Alherni, told the meeting that the present policy of transferring students from i cserve schools to the pro- vincial system is contrary lo committee recommendations made in June. "The special study on Indian affairs took over a year and we never told officially lhal our recommendations were re- jected." The committee recommended that no transfers be made with- out approval of Indian parents. "As a member of that com- mittee I would certainly be will- ing to meet the request of the people of this distinct to investi- gate the said Mr. Barnelt. Canadians appear confused in criticism of surcharge Multicultural body to be increased EDMONTON1 (CP) Plans to broaden the membership of the multicultural committee, appointed by former Premier Harry Strom before the Aug. 30 Alberta election, will be an- nounced ncxl week by Horst Schmid, minister of culture, youth and recreation. Mr. Schmid says the commit- tee will not be dissolved, but a different interpretation will be put on its operations. The government feels the committee, as set up, has a small segment of ethnic groups and most of the representation is from northern Alberta. Mr. Sehmid will outline his revised plans in a speech to the Ukrainian Business and Pro- fessional Mcns' Association Oct 22. IMPROVE HEART PACER. TEL AVIV (Reuter) Re- searchers claim to have devel- oped a new implanlable heart pacing device which can be re- charged by radio signals. Scien- tists at the Weizmann Institute and doctors at the Heart Insti- tute of Shcha Hospital used a nickel-cadmium battery in their device which can be recharged by radio signal every three months during an overnight stay in hospital. Batteries in conventional pacers have to be replaced about every 18 months. NEW YORK (API There is a "certain confusion in the pub- lic thinking" of Canadians in their criticism of the U.S. sur- charge on imports, a high U.S. commerce department ol'ficia says. Harold B. Scott, assistant sec- retary of commerce, made the statement during an interview as he attempted to counter statements by Canadian offi- cials that Canada should be ex- empted from the surcharge. Canada, it has been argued, has a special relationship with Ihc United Slates and had al- ready demonstrated its willing- ness to help (lie American dol- lar by floating her currency. "True, but given the market forces at work, it is a question nf whether they could have held their said Scott. They were motivated partly by the desire lo help, partly by market forces." He added: "It is tempting to blame it all on us, but you have got to soil out the charges." HAVE CAUSE Canadians, he said, "have cause to claim a special rela- tionship with the United States, and they have been successfu in giving credence to this by being exempt from interest equalization taxes and other measures." On the other hand, he contin- ued, "Canada has developed an intense self-absorption, a preoc- cupation with the Canadian image as independent and dis- tinct." The two approaches "are to a degree he said. "This is to me their problem at the moment and one they have to resolve." Scott took pains to be precise and to put a constructive em- phasis on his remarks. "Our economies are made to order for each he said. "They are not conflicting econ- omies. We ought to sit down and plan things out." He carefully laid down com- merce department thinking in regard to special exemptions for any country from Ihe sur- charge, which the U.S. govern- ment claims is a temporary de- vice to force permanent correc- tions in what it feels is an un- fair trade relationship. "If we are not going to point the finger at anyone, we had to apply the surcharge to all with recognition lhat it would be un- fair to some and more unfair lo some than to he said. Scott did not specify whether Uiis meant that Canada was among those countries that might be treated unfairly, but he did construct a case that would indicate otherwise. "Too many countries have been building the U.S. market into their own he said. "We have too many house guests." The domestic prosper- ity of some countries, Canada included, he said, is often based on U.S. sales. "Canada has been building an econtmy dependent on the U.S. market. They are sharing in our market. U is a conscious deci- sion. "Canada exports 23 per cent of her gross national product, which may be the highest per- centage in the world. They have built an economy needing this degree of exports. They have consciously set about to build exports lo achieve an economy of scale." Two-thirds of Canadian ex- ports come to the United States, he said. To support his contention, Scott said that while U.S. ex- ports to Canada make up 25 per cent of all U.S. exports, they constitute only one per cent of the nation's GNP. Canada's billion of exports to the United Slaes, by contrast, amount to 15 per cent of her GNP, he said. "Do Ihcy want a special rela- Scott asked. "Or do they want an independent Scott also said: "It is just not tiue that, as Canadians say, the United States is indifferent to Canada. 1 will publicly say tie facts belie this." How can the United States be indifferent, he asked, to its big- gest trading partner, its biggest foreign outlet for investment funds, and now "and in the fu- ture, its most secure source of. raw Before the interview ended, Scott again said his remarks were made not negatively but in the hope for mutually beneficial agreements with Canada's "very able negotiators."

Tax reform bill really not so bad OTTAWA (CP1 The govern- ment tax reform bill might not be as bad as it's cracked up to be, a series of experls sug- Withdrawal on proposed bill sought OTTAWA (CP) Montreal industrialist Gerard Filion called today for the immediate withdrawal of federal legislation he says will hurt the competi- tive position of Canadian indus- try. The president of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association said there is no room in the present parliamentary calendar for leg- islation "which is harmful to th ability of Canadian industry to meet the new economic chal- lenge." Mr. Filion, president of Mar- ine Industries Ltd., specifically called for the withdrawal of the proposed Competition Bill, the amendment of the Canada Labor Code, the amendment of the Incom; Tax Act and the re- scinding of the sickness insur- anc' provisions 'recently in- cluded in the Unemployment In- surance Act. He told the Canadian Club of Ottawa Mint all four measures would "frustuatc the ability of Canadian industry to compete at home and abroad at a time when we can least afford such self-inflicted wounds." The Competition Bill, al- though having some good points, would outlaw wide areas of commercial conduct without regard to whether it will have an undue; effect on competition, he said, and would leave it lo the to justify his con- duct. gested Wednesday. The 707-page bill, introduced in the Commons last June, now j is under elause-by-clause con- sideration in the House after re- i ceiving second-reading approval Tuesday. Finance Minister E. J. Benson Wednesday proposed 95 amend- i ments to the bill at the same j time as the seminar of chart- ered accountants was indicating i at leas' general approval of the measure. Don Huggctt of Montreal, a partner in McDonald, Currie I which was one of the seminar [sponsors, declined to say i whether the bill was "a superb j job or a monstrosity." j But he did describe it as rep- resenting perhaps the most per- vading change ever introduced in tax law anywhere. Once the initial shock at the size and complexity of the bill i wore off, he said, "You find the bill contains the answers to most problems." I The seminar worked out a j series of suggestions for Canadi- i ans as a means of coping witli j the anticipated taxation i changes. These included: I businesses probably should raise salaries to avoid higher lax rates for business in- comes over facing a 55-per- cent taxation rate should form personal holding companies lo receive part of Iheir income, re- duce current taxes and spread them over several years. This would have to be done before Jan. 1, the intended date for implemcnlaton of the bill. increases in contri- bution limits lo pension and de- ferred profit-sharing plans and retirement savings plans should lw used to the maximum possi- ble. deferring exercise of stock options until 1972. generously to a wife before Jan, I and lo all others after Jan.
