Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta The letWnridge Herald Third Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, September 6, 1972 Pages 1 to 12 Toronto MP Kaplan claims: 'Foreigners have captured trade groups By IRVING C. WIIYNOT The Canadian Press There has been a lot of talk in the past about how much in- fluence foreign parent firms ex- ert in the operation of their Ca- nadian subsidiaries. Now a member of Parliament has raised another related question whether these same foreign firms wield undue in- fluence in the affairs of Cana- dian trade associations. Robert Kaplan, Liberal mem- ber for- the .Toronto riding of Don Valley and a member of the commons commitlee on fi- nance, trade and economic af- fairs, suggested they do. "Do we have in Canada branch plant trade associ- he asked in a Toronto speech. "My preliminary analysis indicates that we do.': Rcactw. from the trade asso- ciations was quick. The Cana- dian M a n u f a c turers' Associ- ation largest trade group in Canada told him his critical remarks were "unwarranted." The Canadian Export Associ- ation said Mr. Kaplan's views reflected his "unawareness of how Canadian associations function in respect to making representa tions to govern- ment." The Canadian Chamber ol Commerce said its policy re- flects the views of its member- ship across the country, much of it in small centres. EXPRESS CONCERN Explaining his concern, Mr. Kaplan put it this way: "I do not mean that the trade associations we have are owned or controlled from outside Can- ada. This would be a grossly in- accurate and unfair charge. What I am suggesting is this: The fact is that the major members, those who pay most of the fees which keep the asso- ciations going, and those who are large enough to spin off their personnel to serve in ex- ecutive positions and on associ- ation committees and task forces, are usually subsidiaries of multi-national enterprises. And I think this affects the way. these associations oper- ate." Mr. Kaplan said there was a lack of reaction frnm the asso- ciations about the American DISC program, under which U.S. firms are given tax in- centives to manufacture at home for export. WAYWARD BULL DIDN'T REALIZE JUST WHAT HE WAS HEADING FOR TORONTO CCP) It was ro- deo time at the Canadian Na- tional Exhibition Monday eve- ning, but one of the partici- pants decided to withdraw at the last moment. Just before it was his turn to enter the ring, a black Brahma bull turned tail and jumped a three-foot fence, then headed along a railway track towards downtown To- ronto. Owner Tom Bishop 4-B ranch In Ridgeville, near Welland, or- ganized a posse and took off after his seven-year-old buck- ing bull with trailer trucks and mounted cowboys. The possee was soon joined by police cruisers and motor- cycles and after a few hours of freedom, the bull was finally lassoed in a field under a flashing1 neon sign that read Canada Packers. "It may be vtry significant: thai fhere was very little, U any, Canadian activity in this field in the private sector from the associations that.might be expected to be most affected by it." NO DISCRIMINATION W. D. H. Frechette, executive v i c e-president and general manager of the manufacturers' association, wrote Mr. Kaplan that its constitution does not permit any "discrimination be- tween member companies on the grounds ot ownership or af- filiation." "All of our members are re- garded as Canadian corporate citizens and ii judgments are to ba made they should be based on the degree to which com- panies measure up to their obli- gations as citizens and not en the 'oasis of where their own- ership rests." Mr. Frechette said it was "quite unjust" to suggest the CMA had shown little concern about DISC. "The CMA made many repre- sentations to the federal gov- ernment and others on this sub- ject over the past missions to the prime minister and his cabinet; public ad- dresses by the CMA president in Canada and the U.S.; and in our publications and commu nications to our members." President James McAvily o! the export association- said in an Interview that with "very few exceptions, the representa tions if U.S. subsidiaries in CEA affairs do not diflbr from Simpsons-Sears Sayelle hose of Canadian-owned com- lanies." "Because U.S.-controlled irms today account for prob- ably more ihaii two-thirds of Canada's export trade, it is not surprising that there are a good many ot them in the CEA mem- "Those who happen to be vorking for American cor- do not express views hat are different from the Ca- nadian-b a s e d multi-national 'irms whom the others repre- sent." DISCUSSIONS FRUITLESS Mr. McAvity said the CEA has made representations to the government on DISC since i April, 1070. "Since that time the associ- ation's tax Committee has ap- peared before the Commons committee where Mr. Kaplan was present and was given far too little time to discuss those parts of its submission which referred (o the DISC proposal. "Subsequent submissions and discussions with finance depart- ment officials have so far proved fruitless. "In fairness, the association has commended Finance Minis- ter John Turner for the- steps taken in his recent budget which will at least partially off- set the main impact ot DISC which, in the view of the asso- ciation, is the threat of diver- sion of product on for world markets to the U.S." General Manager C. II. Scoffield'of the Canadian cham- ber said chamber policy has "always reflected the opinions of its organization member- ship." "There arc some 750 member chambers and boards. Nearly 600 of these voting members are in communities of less than 5.GOO population." He said the chamber's action for i t s e If on the DISC oposals, "The Canadian chamber took ic initiattive with the prime minister's office and other enior cabinet ministers; the hamber had decided to organ- an action group of represen- live senior business leaders press home' the Canadian usiness viewpoint right in 'ashicgton. The visit of that articular delegation to Wash- igton was called off when the i.S. removed the 10 per cent urcharge." You spend lime, ond you put a lot of effort and love Into your knilting.

MULLIGAN WINDSOR, England (A P) The guide books haven't caught up yet, but there's a new scene, man, at Britain's top tourist attraction. Like at night, any night, a sliver of a harvest moon rides high over the lowers and turrets of Windsor Castle. The summer wind pulses with the ominous beat of tom-toms and the twang of electric guitars. Around a great bonfire under the an- cient oaks, spaced-out sub- jects of the Queen dance naked in the moonlight. For more than a week the freaks have been camping out in the Queen's back yard, t e n t ing together in defiance of park regulations under the faded green and pink flag something called The Peo- ple's Republic. "Don't fancy being called hippies anymore freaks is the better advised Nicky, no last name, recum- bent in beads and Indian war paint on a rolled-up sleeping bag. Nicky confesses to hay- ing worked three months in the last five years. About him in berets, bang- gles, floppy hats and fringed jackets sprawled fewer than 100 fellow freaks, tlie last remnants of Uio Great Wind- sor Pop and Sex Festival. Jt was supposed to attract a million hippies from all over Europe but never really got off the ground because park police refused to let per- forming groups plug in their amplifiers.
