Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 LETHBRIDGt HERALD Wednesday, September 25, Tanaka predicts surge in Japan-Canada trade B> DAVE BLAIKIE OTTAWA (CP) Japanese Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka concluded two days of talks with Prime Minister Trudeau Tuesday and came away forecasting a surge in Canadian-Japanese trade. He told a news conference that trade volume between the two countries should hit bil- lion this year and may reach billion, more than 50 per cent above the record bil- lion recorded in 1973. And there is scope for even greater expansion in the future, he said. Worldwide Japanese trade this year is ex- pected to top billion and the volume affecting Canada, even at 5 billion, is small enough to allow more growth. Both leaders credited the talks with opening a new and expanded chapter in Cana- dian-Japanese relations. A communique summing up the meetings said a new era had started and Mr. Tanaka spoke of "the dramatic development" of ties when he addressed a dinner in honor of Mr. Trudeau Tuesday night. Mr Trudeau gave a formal dinner for Mr Tanaka after the visiting premier arrived Monday. The talks covered a wide range of bilateral and multila- teral issues including trade, international economic con- ditions, nuclear disarmament and foreign investment. There were expected pledges of increased consulta- tion and co-operation to enrich and deepen relations but no major statements followed the meetings. A formal communique con- tained only one hard an- pledge by each leader to spend million promoting studies of the other's country. "These funds will be used primarily for the development of Japanese studies in Canada and Canadian studies in it said. No details were given but the prime ministers also agreed to begin negotiations leading to a formal cultural agreement between Japan and Canada. The major Canadian achievement, beyond expand- ed trade prospects, was a commitment by Mr. Tanaka to help Canada reshape the type of exports Canada sends to Japan. NWT commissioner denies law breach YELLOWKNIFE. N.W.T. (CP) Commissioner Stuart Hodgson said Tuesday he has never instructed any of his staff to break the law and that he had no intention of arrang- ing an illegal big game hunt for an Austrian acquaintance last summer. The federally-appointed commissioner, just back from a 10-day official visit to Ja- pan, said in an interview he was not "good on hunting regulations." He was commenting on the release of a confidential memorandum written to him last July by Paul Kwaterowsky, territorial game superintendent, who ad- vised him that plans to take Dr. Werner Blanc of Graz, Austria, on a Narwhal hunt in the high arctic were running into "a snag Mr. Kwaterowsky wrote the trip would have to be cancell- ed because "the federal fishery boys are planning to conduct a Narwhal study in the and asked Mr. Hodgson's advice on whether Federal gov't blamed for rising health costs TORONTO (CP) Provin- cial health ministers placed much of the blame for rising health costs on the federal government Tuesday at the first session of their two-day closed-door conference. Frank Miller of Ontario told reporters following the con- clusion of the session that the provinces all face hefty jumps in health-care budgets next year and want a new arrange- ment with Ottawa to share the burden Mr. Miller said the provinces will ask Ottawa for frequent conferences on cost sharing "as soon as possible." Mr. Miller has said earlier Ontario's health budget is ex- pected to increase about 25 per cent this year will reach about 52 5 billion. He said the other provinces are facing similar increases. Saul Miller. Manitoba health minister, presented a paper rejecting the federal government's block-funding proposal, under which Ottawa would grant the provinces cer- tain set blocks of cash an- nually, leaving them to dole it out as they see fit. He said Manitoba sees this as leaving the provinces caught in the inflation squeeze with no protection. Ontario's minister also criticized the federal govern- ment for lack of control on the number of immigrant doctors, saying the provinces are never asked whether they need physicians before im- BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD.

"The basic demand for doc- tors should be filled with Canadian students." Mr. Miller said. Meanwhile, the president of the Canadian Medical Associ- ation said in an interview Tuesday that competition for places in Canada's 16 medical schools is becoming even tougher because of the large number of immigrant students. "We should be asking our- selves whether we are limiting the opportunities for Canadian Dr. Betty Stephenson said in an inter- view. Fire safety campaign backfires SURREY.
