U.S. extends law to subsidiaries By DAVE AH LETT Herald's Washington Bureau WASHINGTON -U.S. treas- ury department lias made a new ruling extending U.S. laws to Canada. It has ruled that Canadian subsidiaries of U.S. firms can- not buy or .sell gold for their own use on the Winnipeg Com- modities Exchange even though the are technically Canadian firms subject to Ca- nadian laws. Moreover, it Is ruled the sub- sidiaries must take "reasonable measures" to assure that Cana- other non-U.S. citi- not acting on behalf of when they buy gold future contracts on the Winnipeg market. The firms, under Ihe ruling, are allowed to engage only in and selling gold future contracts non- U.S. taking the standard brokerage fee. It is not clear how these firms will prevent Canadians from buying gold futures for U.S. citizens. Nothing_ in Cana- dian law prevents them from doing so, But it is apparent that the Canadian subsidiaries for U.S. firms will have to ask their Ca nadian customers questions that strictly Canadian firms will not. And, while It Is not stated ex plicitly in the treasury order, i is clear that if Canadian subsi diaries do not take "these rea s onablc m t he treas ury will find their U.S. paren companies in violation of U.S gold laws. Under Canadian law, com panics ami individuals can buy and sell gold. Under U.S. law I hey can only do so with Ircas nry department licences whic' arc supposed to go only to qual ificd users of gold, such as e'en lists, jewellers and specialize! industries. In essence, the ruling wil hiivc this effect: Strictly Canadian firms wi' be able to sell gold futures t U.S. citizens or Canadians act- ng for U.S. citizens, but only he U.S. buyer of the futures rill be subject to U.S. Jaw. Subsidiaries of U.S. firms, on he other hand, will be break- ng the law if they either sell to J.S. citizens or fail to take 'reasonable measures" to as- sure that Canadians they sell to are not acting for U.S. citizens, subjecting both seller and niyer to the treasury's penal- ties. The aim of the U.S. law, on :he books since the early '30s, Is to stop speculation in gold. The new treasury ruling was spurred by the decision of the Winnipeg Commodities Ex- change lo set up the first gold futures market in North Amer- ica. Buyers will not actually ac- quire gold on the market. Hather, they will acquire a contract for the future delivery of a specified amount of gold at a specified price. The purpose is to sell the contract when the price goes up or before the price goes down, for specula- tive gain. The exchange, formerly the Winnipeg Grain Exchange, has some 300 members, many of them U.S. firms or the subsi- diaries of U.S. firms.
