Increase co operation i n the fight against pollution of Waterways. Press the Federal govern ment to remove what the prov inces say Are discriminatory freight rates.

Ask the Federal govern ment to extend its Cost sharing formula with the provinces on Hospital care to include alter Nate care setups such As Nurs ing Homes. Ask Ottawa to Reinsl tute its roads to resources program discontinued about five years ago. The free Trade Resolution excludes those grains under the control of the Canadian wheat Board wheat Oats Rye Barley and flax. The Resolution was spawned by the Trade War that began in Quebec six months age and now has spread to All 10 prov inces. Premier Schreyer called the situation a sad mess and added who would have thought that the three Prairie provinces would have to set up continued tract fewer students could be amalgamated so that Only one of the universities in the three provinces would offer instruction in that Couise. The province would then subsidize the student who had to travel to another province to take the course he wanted it would be cheaper than duplicating the facilities in each he cited optometry and Veter Inary Medicine As examples of this kind of course. Premier Schreyer in agree ing with the Saskatchewan Leader said that the provinces have All put Many dollars into higher education and must now take Canada angers . A free Trade area in Premier Thatcher said he would have liked to see the make every Effort phrase left out of the Resolution and added that he would invite any other province in the country to join in the agreement with Saskatchewan. This would mean that Saskatchewan would be willing to offer unrestricted Trade to any province that agreed to offer the same to Saskatchewan pre Mier Thatcher said. The Saskatchewan Premier said this was the most important topic in the 16 items on the Agenda that the three men discussed at the one Day meet ing. I Only wish the Resolution went Premier Strom said he was hopeful that the Resolution would be of value in resolving the Trade problems facing the provinces. I Hope Canada is not Balkan sized into 10 marketing Manitoba s involvement in the Trade War is restricted to the import of chickens which mus meet certain requirements be out by the provincial govern and Are administered by the ment and Are administered by the Manitoba broiler Chicken producers marketing Board. Manitoba s regulations Are so stiff that it is virtually impossible for chickens from other provinces to be imported Here. The province has made one unsuccessful bid to have the supreme court resolve the situation and is now proceeding with other court action. Resolutions were also passed urging Ottawa to do All it could to end the situation. Another topic which All three premiers considered High on the priority list was the rationalization of education costs and possible amalgamation of cer Tain University courses. The Resolution passed on universities Calls for a meeting in Regina Jan. 28 among govern ment and University officials from the three provinces to Dis cuss More efficient use of University resources. At their meeting Friday the premiers approved a series of recommendations from the University coordinating commit tee made up of government and University officials. The recommendations urged Prairie universities to Cut costs by establishing priorities and avoid ing duplication through sharing of Post secondary education facilities. Premier Thatcher said that continued pointed and profoundly regrets that Canada acted. Despite pro Gress in the United nations efforts to develop the Broa Dinter National agreement on Ocean problems. Officials later said they had hoped Canada would reconsider its plan in View of the in Progress. The. Failure to do so would set Back the International Effort it was said. While the main focus of Atten Tion in official statements was the Extension of fishing claims it was the pollution control claim which appeared to hold the greatest potential for Fric Tion Between Canada and the . In relation to the fishing ques Tion the . Was arguing Prin Ciple rather than practicality since Canada specifically excluded the . From plans for restricting foreign fishing activities in order to prevent depletion in the areas concerned. By contrast the pollution control claim apply without qualification to Waterways heavily used by . And other foreign shipping. The new Canadian claims Are comparable to those made with a View to the Protection of the Arctic with the difference that in this Case the claims touch established shipping routes rather than an area where com Mercial shipping is Little More than a theoretical possibility. In the area affected Canada claims the right to enforce Broad prohibitions on dumping of wastes into the water. This is related to the fishing claim in the sense that the prohibitions Are meant to prevent pollution of the Waters which could dam age fishing resources. . Policy is not Cut out of line with the general thurst of Steps to avoid duplication of services and to get rid of sex Alberta is concerned about increasing education costs but we must strive to make it education More available to As Many people As said Premier Strom the premiers also agreed to investigate the possibility establishing a Prairie Region police training facility along the same lines As the plan for rationalizing University costs. A recent decision by the big three automobile manufacturers general motors Chrysler and Ford to drop the Fleet purchases of. Cars was another topic the premiers considered. Premier Thatcher said this decision Means that the prov inces will pay More for each car they Purchase and to Saskatchewan these Means an increase of million. All three premiers agreed to Boycott the big three if Nec Essary and to look to other Auto manufacturers for their car requirements. Premier Thatcher said he would also like to find out if the decision made simultaneously by All three manufacturers was a violation of the Federal anti Combine Laws it s three against Premier Schreyer said and we Don t intend to Back the premiers decided to broaden the terms of reference of the Prairie provinces water Board to include pollution of in Ter provincial Waterways. It was also decided that the polish rioting spreads rioting has taken place in these four polish cities shown on map following demonstrations against Price increases. The trouble in Poland has been centred in the cities of Gdansk Sopot Gdynia and so Checin where radio broadcasts Friday appealed for Observance of the nightly curfew instituted thursday after Public buildings were set afire and shops looted.
