By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The Canadian government, worried that the Arab oil producing countries will cut off shipments of oil to this country, was not reassured today by reasons given by the Arabs for stopp- ing shipments to Holland. Canada has been advised that Aramco, the state-owned oil producing company of Saudi Arabia, has been ordered by its government to ban shipments of oil to this country. External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp informed the Commons Friday that the government has received word of the ban affecting Canada. However he said Canada has received other reports that appeared to contradict the information that Canada was on the em- bargo list. The Canadian government, through its ambassadors in the oil producing Arab states, is trying obtain confir- mation. Canada's diplomatics representatives have re-' quested a meeting with the leaders in Saudi Arabia but as of the weekend no appoint- ment had been made. In Ottawa the Arab In- formation Centre gave the following reasons for cutting off oil shipments to Holland: Netherlands government has considered Syria and Egypt as initiating the aggression. Dutch delegation to the European Community has obstructed a motion to authorize Britain and France to speak in the namt? of all the nine European countries in the Security Council, on the pretext that these two states are not impartial. Dutch media has encouraged the Dutch people volunteering to go to Israel to participate in the agg ression. Dutch government owned airline KLM helped Israel aggression by trans- porting volunteers to Israel. including coverage in the Dutch media, have been extended to the fund-raising campai gn for Israel. governmen t of the Netherlands has adop ted the Israeli view and supported the English, rather than th e more explicit French text of Resolu- tion 242. attitude of I- lolland in the European Conference on Security and Co-operation. This outline of the reasons why the Arab oil pro ducing countries have shut off ship- ments of oil to the Netherlands has caused concern in Ottawa. Several of the reasons outlined would also apply to Canada and are beyond the control of the Dutch or Canadian govern- ments. A shipment of oil destined for Canada, but scheduled to dock at Portland, was cancell- ed before it left Abu Dhabi. The belief in Ottawa was that the Portland destination in the U.S. might have been the reason the shipment was halted. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield raised the issue in the House Friday. He asked Energy Minister Donald Mac- donald if Canada had received advice that Aramco was ordered to stop shipping oil to Canada. Mr. Macdonald said "we re- ceived information of that kind. We also received conflicting information as to whether or not this would be the case. We want to know whether Saudi Arabia would distinguish Canada from the U.S. in terms of its embar- goes." External Affairs Minister Sharp called in the Arab am- bassadors stationed in Ottawa Thursday. He discussed with them the affect of Arab oil cutbacks on Canada. He reported to the House that the Arab ministers said they did not know why a Canada bound oil shipment was held up by Abu Dhabi. Unfortunately none of the ambassadors in Ottawa repre- sented Arab states from which Canada purchases oil. Mr Stanfield asked if Canada has been in direct con- tact with Saudi Arabia. Mr. Sharp informed the House the last word from our ambassador there was that he had been unable to make an appointment to see the heads of government. Mr. Stanfield asked if the government had thought of sending Ivan Head from the prime minister's office, to Saudi Arabia. There was laughter from the opposition side of the House. Mr. Head has been travelling around the world at FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO. the instructions of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau which has caused some members of the external af- fairs department to wonder if the prime minister's personal aide was replacing the of- ficers of the department in their duties. Mr. Sharp hastened to reply that Mr. Head ws an "ex- cellent officer" in the prime, minister's office. He said Canada was also well represented abroad by its am- bassadors.
