i likely ,to be successful in the future, There Just isn't much i of a market In Canada for Rus- 1 eiaa products. I. FEW JfYERS HERE The Russians should be, by Vow, acutely aware of this. The timilarttlea between the basic production of the twp countries '. are toe pronounced to be long i ignored. - I. Russian consumer goods are at an Insurmountable disadvantage to terms of quality and design. And there's no hope whatever of establishing markets be-. tween these extremes of 'raw : materials and consumer goods i lor product ton . machinery, say la Canada's commitment to-Nortfc American and British designs. , " The Russians : are , further . handicapped' in the absence of . pans depots and service faclU- ' They are pretty weH left, then, to having to offer basic products on terms that amount to simple barter, uirome ore, window glass, plywood and pig iron have .been purchased In Canada . but the , quantities naven't oeea large. .... . What the Russians want la a eusmined trade, something they can count upon from one year It me aaxt They csa only have it if Canada'! need to sell wheat it suifecieatJy urgent to put the government in toe position of becoming the principal in ceptance of Russian oil r come other competing product in re turn. That urgency, of course, does not exist although some mem bers of Parliament representing wheat growing constituencies might be persuaded to think so. Even if H did, as It baa la del pest the difficulties of mak ing aa acceptable . exchange would be virtually impossible to overcome.. The government, first of all, would have to set up some sort of state trading agency. It would then have to convince domestic prodncora that the entry Into their markets of Ruuiaa prod-acts wae for the overall good of the country. Neither could be accomplished without poetical risk.. . Even then, the 'government' trouble would be Just begin ning. . Take oil, for example. From the Russian point of view, this is a perfectly suitable product to exchange for wheat. Oil fields have been lately developed In Siberia; the shipping si ear I Is got great At me same time, Canadian wheat moved via Vancouver would enjoy comparable transportation advantages. And it la cheaper to take Canadian wheat in Siberia than to novo Russian wheat there by red. So what could be. more reasonable? ' BARTER DEAL OUT . But walC The Russians wouldn't be able to And a private company to take oil, r What one would when most ,of them have excess production of their own? The odd Jobber might be tempted but he'd think twice before Jeopardising his existing supply reletionshlpe. In the end, the government would have to take it and then forcibly feed it into the economy- hardly a desirable move. Even then, 'however, the gov ernment's troubles would be Just beginning. Canada is closely committed to continental development of resource. ".1 Its national oil policy is predi cated upon, .among other considerations. American acceptance of Canadian oil In the west and the continuance of an open market for Venezuelan oil in the east. i l The Americans are not going to be persuaded to acceptance of Russian oil by Canada when it is likely to impose new strains upon this arrangement Th chance are they'd quite arbitrarily Impose import Quota on Canadian oil. We would . have, in otner worda, fur more to lose than to gain in any sort of forced exchange of Russian raw ma terials for wheat The circum stances lb oH are much the same tor all our raw material. The R uuians, in th end, will stUi have to be content with what they can sell on their own.
