16 64-863. X V3 fu, THE OTTAWA JOURNAL WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 12. 19V 1AL- tJ.IJ. .! ' taL.!- yrno noias rne yynipr By GORDON DEW All fet Tbeournal ERIC WINKLER (C Grey-Bruce), Chief Opposition Whip, asked in the Commons Tuesday whether Ontario has been given the veto power in any future amendments to the proposed national pension scheme. He got no answer from Health Minister LaMarsh and some people wondered what he was talking about He was talking about a paragraph in the minister's white paper on the scheme which stipulate that "any amendments of substance, which would affect benefits, . contribution rates or the size and management of the pen ion fund, will take effect only if they are consented to by two-thirds of the provinces having two-thirds of the population of Canada?? A touch of s 1 m pi e arithmetic makes Mr. Wink-tor's question clear. ' Canada has a population a bit in excess of 19,000,000. Two-thirds of this is, rough-ry. 12.666,666 people. . . Ontario has a population in excess of 6,500,000. Hence, even if nine-tenths of the provinces (all but Ontario) agreed to any amendments, they could not .have them passed If Ontario disagreed. They do not contain two-thirds of the population. ' Quebec, Is not in the same position, with its population only approaching 6,000,000. But Ontario and-Quebec together comprise almost two-thirds of the Canadian popu-J latloo, - ; . They could not deal with any amendments, however, . because they are not two-thirds of the provinces (it would tike seven of the 10). Perhaps there never will be any amendments to the ' pension plan once it is pass-. ed. If It is passed. There has to be 100 per cent agreement among the provinces for Hi initial pas- sage in the Commons. ON THE LIGHTER SIDE. "T Parliament's front lawn wtU see tonight one of the mora . garish shows of its time. : For the second time this Summer, MP's and members of the' Press Gallery will :j clash in Softball game. . - Unlike anything m the past will be the accompany ing t hoopla. .-,.-( - ,. ' The Troubadour Drum Corps, international award : winners, will provide the ' necessary kind of music for ' a wild battle of this sort' while the Majorettes wilt at-j: tempt to distract spectators" . from the bloodshed. ' The more or less annual,' ' and sometimes semi-annual game, has , been going on since early in the century. , PIANOS SON. UMITCO 358 Bank St (at Cooper) Somehow, the MP's manage to win most of the time, but the Gallery managed to establish a winning streak of one game four years ago. They hope to stretch it to two!? t CANADA'S TROUBLES with fabric imports appear to be increasing, ' particularly with regard to Japanese products now finding favor on the Canadian market. Finance Minister Gordon was asked In the Commons last week when he would make a report on the latest negotiations between Canada and Japan concerning voluntary Japanese restrictions on their exports to Canada. He said 1 would do this within 10 days.' But word has already leaked out that the Japanese are not too willing to hold down' their exports and will agree to nothing toss than a 20 per cent increase over last year's exports in the field of wool fabric. This remain a voluntary matter under a so-called export surveillance system and is not a guarantee. It could mean trouble to the Canadian fabric industry, since the Japanese have been sending in high-quality cloths at lower retail prices than cari' be offered by Canadian producer. .

So said Douglas Fisher, NDP member for Port Arthur, to a group of elementary and high school teachers at the "News paper in the Classroom" work shop at Carieton University. Politicians like to receive space in the newspapers, . he says, but they are bothered by wnat tney feel is often Inac curate reporting and so they harbor a certain distrust for reporters. ... I : This distrust then finds an outlet - in " "petty" bickering over what was or was not actu ally said and the Interpretation of the relevant remarks. Mr, Fisher say 'that there is a Arm belief oa Parliament HU1 that the press b pro-Liberal to the extent that about M of the 75 active Press' Gallery member are reporting with Liberal This, be feels. leaves the Ca nadian public without to unbiased political reporting' that they require to make intelli gent decisions, x : The' result of this support. he maintains, is that the Liberals, who pride themselves on their ability to manage" the news, are irritated when they are criticized. 1 , One of the results of this "a. ' r a. . BBBBaja, , at political leaning on the part of a portion of the press ha been the attempt,-aince 1961, to concentrate on the tearing down of the Conservative and John Diefenbaker. - A great difficulty encountered by the press reporting from Ottawa he feels,, arises when the reporter are loathe to criticize their contacts in the government '.who provide them with "vital information. r sr m lw ij' ar ar i !". !
