Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Wedneiday, September 1, 1971 Lots of in outcome of Nixon, Trudeau meeting By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON (CP) Sllb- staiicc and tively, Ihe meat and dessert of jnlcnintional each be a faelor when Richard Nixon pays a state visit (o Canada next spring. The intriguing question, some six months before the event, is the relative weight that will be given to each factor by the time the American president begins his tour. If the most hurtful aspects for Canada of Nixon's new eco- nomic program have disap- peared by then and no other se- rious problems come along, the president's visit could largely be devoted to reaffirming the friendlier side of Canada-United Slales relations. But if iiie lough U.S. attitude Stanfield repeats tax cuts needed POWELL RIVER, B.C. (CP) Unless Ihe government changes its economic policies, unemployment in Canada won't dip below six per cent of the work force for the rest of the year, Conservative Leader Rob- ert Stanfield said Tuesday. Mr. Stanfield repeated his be- lief that cuts in income and other taxes are needed to help the country get out of "eco- nomic recession and achieving some soli of balanced economic growth." Tax cuts would "help ait un- employment and it would even act as a break on inflationary pressure by returning lo Cana- dian wage-earners a larger part of the income they were earn- ing." The Opposition Leader said the government hact rejected his earlier demands for Lax cuts on grounds the economy was pick- ing up, inflation checked and unemployment going down. "I think the Canadian econ- omy has ilself, unfortunately, given the most eloquent re- sponse to the government's rather complacent attitude." Large-scale unemployment and the need to go on welfare didn't help 10 preserve human dignity and were poor substi- tutes for men and women fit and willing to work. RECALLS ROUGH TOUR Mr. Stanfield recalled his crc-ss-country tour last winter to major Canadian cities to see un- employment first-hand. He was given a rough reception in seme centres. "That wasn't a pleasant expe- rience, but ii brought home to me forcefully the bitterness and despair that it (unemployment) engenders." Economists were warning Uiat Canada was in for a bad winter and the new US. lax on imports would do further harm. He again called for Prime Minister Trudeau lo visit Presi- dent Nixon lo present the Cana- dian poinl of view on the tariff increases. Canada must act vig- orously to achieve and maintain a realistic rate of exchange be- tween the Canadian and Ameri- can dollars. Tax cuts would be a declara- tion of faith "in the power of the incentive society." "II is by recognizing the value of the just award lo the individ- ual and to the society that we shall have a viable economy and a really jus' society." PLAN ART TOUR OTTAWA (CP) The Na- tional Gallery is readying 13 new exhibitions to be shown in 27 communities across Canada in the coming 1971-72 season, including engravings and wood- cuts by Albrecht Durer. a Ger- man artist born in 1471. and a series of 100 etchings done by Pablo Picasso in the 1930s. (J Ihe new 10 per- cent import duty emains, if the Canadian dollar is forced up- ward in value, if Congress edges toward protectionism- Ihe ceremonial could be cut short in favor of hard bargain- ing with the Trudeau govern- ment. Officials in OfUraa and Wash- ington will begin preliminary work shortly on some of the broader possibilities of a Mum visit. Detailed work on tho length of the visit, Ihe itinenn and the topics for discussion will probably not take place for some months. A trip lo Ottawa is vitually certain, but the two countries are also likely to consider whether Ihe president could, or should, expand his visit lo take in trips elsewhere. If time allows, and since bolh governments face eleclion in 1972, there mighl be advantage for both the president and his hosts in some well-orchestrated appearances outside the capital And since Nixon on his trips across the US. has favored flying hops into the friendly sur- roundings of medium-sized cit- ies, the possibility of a similar tour in Canada cannot be over- looked. Several issues are hanging fire now in Canada-U S. rela- tions which could still form the basis for serious discussion in spring. The U.S. government has pre- viously expressed impatience al the lack of esponsc from Can- ada lo its proposals for some kind of agreement that would allow greater U.S. access lo surplus Canadian energy re- sources and minerals. Another polenlial lopic is the Canada United Slates auto agreement, which has proven to be an unexpectedly potent dol- lar-earner for Canada as a re- sult of safeguards surrounding the pact. There is also the possibility that a joint agreement on con- trol of Great Lakes pollution could form a basis for a public ceremony nexl spring. It was lo have been completed by this fall but is understood lo be encoun- tering delays. ADMITS LOANS Assisl- iinl Atlonirv General Will R.

Canada ahead of U.S. in .drug packaging OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian approach lo packaging of hazardous drugs may be "jusl a little ahead" of thai in the United Stales, Dr. R. A. Chap- man, director-general or the federal Food and drug directo- rate, said Tuesday. Dr. Chapman comment- ing on reports Monday t'uiL l.hc U.S. Food and Drug Administra- tion will require child-proof con- tainers for most aspirin prod- ucts. Canada has no such require- ment, and allows pharmacists to reciilale themselves. Dr. Chapman .said Iho Cana- dian system lias worked out well. Child-proof containers someHiTiiis were mere of a hindrance than a help, espe- cially in the case of elderly per- sons.
