Liberal leader David Anderson said the speech was composed of the usual "pap or pablum" and failed to spell out how the government intends to achieve some of its objectives. "It is a list of things they would like to touch on but doesn't say how they are going to touch on them or what they are going to he added. Dr. G. Scott Wallace. Conservative house leader, said "as always the speech was general" with no specific information. He said he was not surprised that the two main issues to be dealt with at the session will be labor and agriculture. These'are the highlights: A new labor code for B.C. combining many present labor statutes aimed at establishing an improved framework for collective bargaining and settlement of industrial dis- putes "free from disruption to the economy." Agriculture legislation designed to encourage secon- dary and tertiary agriculture industries, to rationalize credit systems of primary agriculture, to provide means of achieving some estabilixa- tion of farm income, to provide debt protection for the family farm under some dis- tress circumstances, and to give greater control of infec- tious animal diseases.

Trudeau hopes to broaden China tie OTTAWA (CP) One of Prime Minister Trudeau's major goals during his visit to China next month will be to broaden all channels of com- munications with that country. His special assistant, Ivan Head, told reporters Thursday that existing channels are "sterotyped and rather in- stitutionalized." The prime minister hoped they could be broadened to allow increased contacts, not only for governments but for in- dividuals. Mr. Trudeau leaves for China Oct. 8 and wijl spend lour days in Peking, where he will meet with Premier Chou Kn-lai, and another two days visiting other areas of the country. These travel details are still not established. Mr. Head said that "we want to strengthen, con- solidate and ensure a perma- nent basis" for the relationship that was estab- lished with diplomatic recognition between the two countries in 1970. At the moment, there are scores of agreements being worked on in all fields, including trade, science and culture, but Mr. Head said there is no indica- tion any will be ratified while Mr. Trudeau is there. "This is not the purpose of the visit." The prime minister is re- sponding to an invitation issued by the Chinese through former trade minister Jean- Luc Pepin when he was in China in 1971. Since then Ex- ternal Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp and Energy Minister Donald Macdonald have visited that country. Mr. Head s-aid the prime minister feels it is more im- portant "functional ministers" to visit first so4 ground work will have been completed before he begins his talks. He said there is no precise information on how the Chinese view the talks. There is little doubt that trade will figure prominently. Last year Canada shipped million worth of goods to China and imported million worth in return. Canada now is China's num- ber two supplier of manufac- turer goods, and Mr. Head said that officials here recognize there has to be some balance for a "healthy relationship." There was still a great potential for further Canadian exports, including potash and sulphur. Our leases are full of extras, but you'd never know it by the price Phone ROY MclNTOSH at 328-9271 Now!
