Mary Dobay 2690-28 Strong world affairs role for Canada Trudeau aim By MICHAEL LAVOIE OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau is determined to give Canada a strong new activist role on the left wing of international af- fairs, Ivan Head, Mr. Trudeau's special foreign af- fairs advisor, said Wednesday. With the help of Allan MacEachen as his new exter- nal affairs minister, Mr. Trudeau will seek to heighten Canada's world influence by taking a more moralistic approach to international problems, Mr. Head said in an interview. The new emphasis will be on the human problems affecting people wherever they live and on strengthening Canada's ties with Europe, Japan and the developing countries of Asia and Africa. Prime Minister Trudeau, secure with a Commons ma- jority, already has begun a busy round of meetings with international leaders to put the new approach into effect. The meetings began in Ot- tawa this week with a formal visit by Japanese Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka and will continue over the coming months. Mr. Trudeau will make three foreign visits by mid-winter and welcome several foreign leaders here this fall. Among them will be Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme who, Mr. Head said, has greatly impressed Mr. Trudeau with his outspoken left-wing approach to inter- national problems. 'A CUTTING-EDGE' Mr. Head said the Swedes, with their denunciation of the Vietnam war and the military revolt in Chile, have become "the cutting edge of the left- very active, outspoken and moral." Canada can be expected to take a similar, though not nec- essarily identical, approach to such problems in the future, he said. Mr. Head said Mr. Trudeau wants to avoid the posturing normally associated with international relations and hopes Canadian foreign policy "will be measured for the effect that it has on individual human beings." "He is determined that if at the end of his four-year term of office there is criticism of our foreign policy, it will be sins of commission rather Nixon memoirs rights sold NEW YORK (AP) Warner Paperback Library has purchased the paperback publication rights to former president Richard Nixon's memoirs, says Nixon's literary agent, Irving Lazar. "We shook hands that they will be the publishers, and they will Lazar said after a meeting Thursday with ex- ecutives of the New York- based firm. Lazar declined to- say how much Warner will pay for the rights. Other literary agents have speculated that Nixon may earn million for his memoirs, but when Lazar was asked whether he had an ask- ing price for the still-unsold hardcover rights, he replied: "I just start out with who wants to pay the most money." than sins of Mr. Head said. This means new stress on efforts to solve increasingly complex international economic problems, to dis- suade other countries from isolating themselves from world problems and to increase the international im- portance of developing coun- tries, he said. Mr. Head said Mr. Trudeau met the Swedish prime minister in Austria last winter and was keenly interested in learning more about Sweden's activist foreign policy. MORE OUTSPOKEN "We will be more outspoken on some of the moral issues than we have been in the past." He said one indication of Mr. Trudeau's concern lies in his choice of Mr. MacEachen to replace Mitchell Sharp in external affairs. Mr. MacEachen is an 11-year cabinet veteran with a record in the health, welfare and manpower portfolios and a strong cabinet backer of ex- panded social policies. This contrasts with Mr. Sharp, a former senior government' bureaucrat and industrial ex- ecutive, who took a moderate line in the external affairs post. Mr. Head said Mr. Trudeau wants Canada to be in a strong position to help cope with trade, economic and monetary problems that are increasingly affecting all countries. Mr. Trudeau feels that the so-called third world countries, as well as the big industrial powers, should be guaranteed an active role in finding solutions to such problems, he said. "The developing countries have to be included in the international decision-making process from now on." With his decisive election victory in July, Mr. Trudeau has become quite attractive to other government leaders, Mr. Head said. Since the elec- tion there has been a con- siderable increase in the number of invitations to Mr. Trudeau to make foreign visits and in feelers about possible visits by foreign leaders to Canada. TIMING CLOSE Mr. Tanaka had just left Ot- tawa this week when the Com- monwealth finance ministers arrived for a conference at which Mr. Trudeau gave the opening address. Next week Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam will stop on his way home from the United Nations for informal talks with Mr. Trudeau. Mr. Palme will be in Ottawa in mid-October before Mr. Trudeau leaves on a four-day visit to France and European Common Market head- quarters in Brussels. He will talk during the four-day visit with government leaders of France, Belgium and Luxem- bourg. Mr. Trudeau will return to Europe later in the winter for visits to other Common Market countries, possibly including the United Kingdom, West Germany, Ita- ly and the Netherlands. He expects to have his first meeting with President Gerald Ford in Washington before the end of the year. Another foreign leader, still not named by the government, will visit Canada in December. The contacts with Japan and Europe are a big part of a pol- icy of finding alternatives to strong economic and cultural dependence upon the United States, Mr. Head said. Relations with the U.S. will still remain one of the most vi- tal aspects of Canadian foreign policy and if relations between the East Bloc and the White House can remain as open as they were during Richard Nixon's administra- tion "then things shouldn't become overly difficult." Move supporting legal abortions is defeated EDMONTON The Alberta Medical Association (AMA) defeated a move under which it would have supported the removal of abortion laws from the criminal code. Edmonton physician Doug Ringrose introduced the mo- tion following the debate on recommendations of the AMA's committee on mater- nal welfare. Dr. Ringrose said the aborting of pregnancies less than three months long should be a matter between the doc- tor and his patient. Abortions of pregnancies less than 3 months old should also be allowed to be done in a physicians office on an out- patient basis, he said. The Criminal Code now states that abortions must be done in an active treatment hospital for "health" reasons, where candidates for abor- tions are screened by a special committee. "There is an extensive bibliography that abortions are much safer on an out- patient basis than in a hospital." he said. "There is much more chance to pick up an infection in a hospital." Dr. Ringrose added statistics of such operations in the United States showed 000 to abortions being done in physicians' offices, without a death. There has been a death among hospital abortions in Alberta. Also with the "health reason" clause in the code a woman is tagged with a "fraudulent label" because the majority of abortions are done for so-called "psychiatric said. reasons, he No gov 9t move made on coast grain strike Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Labour Minister John Munro. said Wednesday there has been no cabinet decision to introduce legislation to settle the west coast grain handling strike as the first bill before the new parliament. "Reports that the cabinet has made such a decision are speculative. Obviously if there cannot be a settlement reached between the parties the government will have to introduce legislation to deal with the situation, but we are still hopeful that there will be a said Mr. Manro. While there was nothing definite emanating from the talks the government is not Beheaded body found in S. Africa DURBAN, South Africa
