VICTORIA (CP) The In- surance Corporation Of British Columbia (ICBC) will begin offering policies in the general insurance field Oct. 1, Tran- sportation Minister Robert Strachan announced today. "We are going into business to offer the people of British Columbia another alternative in property and casualty in- said Mr. Strachan, who is president and chairman of the ICBC board. "We will have a full line of policies covering all of the major fields from homeowners' and tenants' packages to large industrial risks." The ICBC was given the authority at the last session of the B.C. legislature to enter the general insurance field as well as handle the government's monopoly automobile insurance scheme which goes into operation March 1, 1974. Mr. Strachan said govern- ment auto insurance applications will be mailed in December to each vehicle owner along with the annual vehicle licence plate renewal application. By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON (CP) Canada's proposed new oil policy, which threatens to cut sharply into exports to the energy-hungry United States market, has so far provoked only a hesitant and confused response within the Nixon ad- ministration. There has been no official U.S. government statement about the policy outlined last week by Prime Minister Trudeau. However, energy officials here manage to leave the im- pression that if they didn't have so many other urgent problems to worry about, they would certainly be worrying about the new Canadian policy. "We just haven't had time to give this the detailed analysis it so obviously a state department official said. "But we consider it damned important in the long run the im- plications are pretty dis- tressing." After struggling through sporadic shortages of heating oil and other fuels last winter, then coping with gasoline shortfalls this summer, the U.S. now faces an even worse supply situation for the com- ing winter.

Stocks of heating oil in the populous northeast, which uses 60 per cent of the country's supply of such oil, are at perilously low levels. Only a mild winter and a steady supply of., oil from European refineries can pull the U.S. through the winter months. On top of that immediate concern, energy planners must cope with various threats to their imports from the Arab world and delays in domestic production caused by environmental and legal restraints. All of which has left them with little opportunity so far to look into the Ottawa proposals. The Trudeau government has said it will extend the interprovinCial pipeline to Montreal, diverting some 000 barrels a day of Alberta crude from the U.S. the current feed Eastern Cana- dian refineries. It has also proposed some form of two- price system, allowing export prices to rise with world rates while sheltering the Canadian market. REACTION MILD The treasury department's view, as expressed informally by one senior official, is that Ottawa's new plans are con- sistent with its policy of ex- port restraint in recent that putting the domestic Canadian market first is a natural response. Other departments which have responsibilities in energy policy are decidedly less cer- tain that the eventual American reaction to the new program will be so gentle. If the Nixon administration should decide to protest, how- ever, it may find itself on slippery grounds. Both Canada and the U.S. have moved full circle in the last year or less, as world oil prices have soared and the U.S. has had to confront a series of shortages. Where Ottawa once pressed vainly for free access to U.S. markets for Western Cana- dian oil. it now curbs the amount of exports and is suggesting that the quantity be slashed further so Montreal refineries can be supplied.
