MERCURY MONARCH i MERCURY All provincial governments spending madly EDMONTON (CP) The Canadian Federation of Independent Business has turned its concern about public spending to provincial administrations from the federal government, John Bullock, federation president, said Wednesday Mr Bullock told the Ed- monton Chamber of Commerce that the federation evolved four years ago to fight increasing federal taxation The Toronto-based organiza- tion now has members The federal government now is preferred over the provincial governments whose spending, particularly on health and welfare programs, contribute to inflation The Conservative governments of Ontario and Alberta are as guilty of these policies as the NDP in British Columbia, he said Huge welfare expenditures in addition to the billion flowing from the unemploy- ment insurance commission are for high government costs and labor shortages "The provincial governments are spending money like drunken sailors because they can get it at four per cent interest from pension funds.' Mr Bullock said He said big government and multi-national corporations are a far greater threat to the independent businessman than the tragic, unnecessary and phoney issue of east-west conflict The east-west debate is simply squabbling between the provinces and the federal government over inflated resource revenues, Mr Bullock said The current distrust of big business adopted by con- sumers also is shared by thousands of small, indepen- dent businessmen who find their operations hindered by huge international cor- Copper wire price drops TORONTO Tex- asgulf Inc said Tuesday it has reduced the price of copper wire bar sold in Canada by three cents a pound to cents effective last Friday The price for customers in the United States is 81 cents a >ound. down six cents Appropriate adjustments 'or other forms of copper were also made. Texasgulf porations "This growth of big inter- national corporations, along with the growth of government, are the biggest threat to private Mr Bullock said after the meeting Smaller firms in the business community must become politically active because they cannot expect organizations dominated by large multi-national concerns to speak for them He said the federation is op posed to the Canadian Arctic Gas Pipeline Ltd proposal to export Canadian natural gas through a pipeline down the Mackenzie Valley but sup- ports the all Canadian project sponsored by Alberta Gas Trunk Line Ltd He said the Arctic Gas pro- ject would lead to additional exports of Canadian natural gas while the advantage of the Gas Trunk proposal is that it would be built entirely for Canadian needs over a six- year period rather than the two years proposed for the Arctic gas line "A rush project like that would mean welders would leave their jobs throughout Canada to work on the pipeline and this would aggravate labor problems throughout the country that there appeared to be a consensus, for a co-operative international approach to the question of oil prices The United States, meanwhile, appears to have adopted a hard line suggesting retaliatory action if prices are not brought down Mr Smith said there was agreement that there should be mechanisms to stabilize prices of essential com- modities The message from the less developed countries was "un- less we get some urgent short- run action we'll be out of busi- ness Finance Minister John Turner said he hoped the precedent set by the Organiza- tion of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in setting oil prices would not be extend- ed to other commodities This would be disastrous for world trade Mr Smith declined com- ment on types of urgent action discussed, saying this should more properly come out at meetings of larger inter- national agencies such as the International Monetary Fund which meets next week in Washington The US threat came in speeches earlier in the week by President Ford and State Secretary Kissinger Mr Ford said at a world energy conference in Detroit "Sovereign nations cannot allow their policies to be dic- tated, or their fate decided by artificial rigging and distortion of world commodity pnces A A Ayida, permanent sec retary in the Nigerian ministry of finance, said after the meeting here Wednesday that his delegation agreed there should be a co-operative approach to the question of oil prices and supplies But he said the way to deal with the price question was through OPEC Nigeria is the only Commonwealth member which is a major oil exporter Mr Smith said there was concern in several countries about the split on oil profits Producing countries now get about a barrel while taxes in industrial countries range between and a barrel Mr Turner said he agreed that there should be a co-oper- ative approach but it must be one which has a chance of be- ing accepted by industrial countries The tone for the meeting of ministers was set at the public opening session Prime Minister Trudeau, speaking at the formal cere- mony discussed economic de- velopments and said there is an "absolute requirement for cooperation in our attempts to deal with those events in order to turn them to our benefit N M Perera, Sri Lanka s finance minister asked diplomatically if countries had not been guilty of "dawdling" in moving to deal with the problems Time was working against the poor and solutions must be found quickly YjEAR AFTCR AFTCR YCAR CAT AFTER e CAT, 3 FAST CATS, FAMILY CATS, WG CATS, LITTLE CATS...
