OTTAWA (CP) Prime Min- ister Trudeau said Wednesday that any renegotiation of the Cnnada-U.S. auto pact and re- moval of the U.S. surcharge on imports from Canada "arc not linked in our mind."

Mr. Trudeau was replying to questions by Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield, former NDP leader T. C. Douglas and Derek Blackburn Mr. Stanfield quoted a U.S. treasury department official as saying that removal of the 19C5 pact's safeguards for Canadian employment is a precondition of the surtax removal.

OTTAWA fCP) Almost 23 per cent of all pedestrians killed in traffic accidents in Canada in 1970 were 65 or older, although that age group comprised fewer than eight per cent of the popu- lation, the Canadian Automobile Association says. The statistics are based on a survey of senior citizen pedes- trian acccidenls. released today by the Ottawa-based organiza- tion. A total of 151 cities with a population of 6.34 million jvere included in the survey. Fifty- eight senior citizen pedestrians died as a result of traffic acci- dents in Ihe survey period and 417 were injured. The survey was to provide in- formation to officials involved in developing new safety pro- grams for senior citizens, the automobile association said. Persons aged 65 were in- volved in almost twice as many pedestrian accidents as any other single age group over 65, the study showed. Because age 65 is the normal first year of retirement for the majority of Canadians, the asso- ciation said, "it is the first year that senior citizens experience the many changes that involve him more fully as a daytime pe- destrian." "Prior to retirement, his day- time activity included private or public transportation to and from work and involved vir- tually no walking during the j daytime." Senior citizens as a whole, the study showed, were involved in half of all pedestrian fatalities and injuries. Persons aged 75 or older ac- count for more than 40 per cent t of injuries and fatalities among all senior citizens. Almost two-thirds of senior citizen fatalities and injuries occur in daytime, the study showed. More men than women were involved in accidents. The late afternoon between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. is tie most haz- ardous time of day and Fridays and Saturdays the most hazard- ous days of the week, the study Indicated. One-third of senior citizen pe- destrian fatalities and injuries occured in October, November and December. Nearly two-thirds of the acci- dents occurred under ideal weather conditions, and in more than three-fourths of the acci- dents, the pedestrians involved were not suffering from any de- monstrable infirmity.
