Among pending fed' era! bills which may drive com- panies out of business were the competition bill and the pro- posed labor code. M r. Archibald condemned those who "foster an anti-Amer- ican campaign" and said Cana- dians should realize that the U.S. is our best customer and our best -neighbor. The issue of trade relations with the U.S. was scheduled for further discussion today as con- flicting resolutions were to be presented. One resolution urges the fed- eral government to give lop priority to improving trade ac- cess to the U.S. market. The U.S. currently accounts for slightly more than two-thirds of Canada's two-way trade. Ajiothcr resolution says Can- ada should explore the possibil- ties of entering the European Common Market or of making trade agreements with Epulh American of Pacific Rim coun- tries in order to lesson depend- ence on trade with any one na- tion. The Canadian chamber has about 800 affiliate chambers of commerce and boards of trade, many of which initiated draft resolutions. A proposal that financal con- .ributions to political parties be tax-exempt was among other resolutions.

"To date, that leadership has not been and the absence of any indication the U.S. is prepared to ofler leader- ship is "both novel and disturb- ing." Jlr. Mahoney said there does not seem to be left in the U.S. any powerful vested interest advocating free trade. And there were those who saw Aug. 15, 1971, the dale when President Nixon imposed additional 10-per-cent tariffs, "as the advent of a new era of protectionism." OTTAWA (CP) A month after Finance Minister Benson urged Canadians to spend some of their fat bank balances and draw available credit to give a joost to the economy, wholesle and retail trade slumped, gov- rnment statistics show.
