BLIGKCOMB WEAPONS Proposed controls on exports called inadequate Canadian Press OTTAWA A Commons subcommittee that recommended tighter controls on military exports didn't go far enough, peace groups said Thursday. The report of the subcommittee on arms exports, issued Wednesday, said that since Canadian arms makers aren't about to stop making military goods overnight, their sales should be monitored closely. It also said the government should offer to help industries move into technologies with the potential for civilian spinoffs. It commended the government on its present system of export controls, but recommended it draft a new list of countries approved to buy arms and munitions. 1 Countries eligible for arms sales should have to meet strict criteria, the subcommittee said. They should be at peace, they should also be in good standing with the United Nations, have good human rights records and should not be in the process of building huge arsenals. It suggested Parliament have the power to oversee the list of potential customers. That's not enough, said Gideon Forman, coordinator of the Canadian Peace Alliance, in demanding a total ban on military exports. "The international weapons trade is as abhorrent as the slave trade," Forman said. The Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade said in a statement the subcommittee should have placed more emphasis on efforts to convert arms industries to civilian production. Technology, research and labor directed to making weapons could be better used in developing such things as renewable energy sources, energy-efficient mass transit systems and new medical technology, the coalition said. Lloyd Axworthy, the Liberal external affairs critic, has introduced a private member's bill to establish an economic conversion commission that would work with industries to help them convert to civilian production. Private bills, however, almost never become law. The Canadian Centre for Arms Control welcomed the subcommittee's recommendations. "If adopted by the government, the subcommittee's recommendations would go a long way to re-establishing the tight controls Canada has traditionally maintained over Canadian arms sales," said John Lamb, executive director of the centre. Lamb and Forman both expressed concern over the government's decision to issue an export permit that would clear the way for a New Brunswick Arm to sell three patrol frigates worth $1.5 billion to Saudi Arabia. ew way to pay without cash, cheques or credit cards. t v 1 w . i i m I V MM"!
