The Times "ratc.(1. Canada's importance in the upheaval as worth only five inches of space at the bottom; of Page 42," The Globe aid Mail said.

Gerald H. Cover of Gowanda, N. Y., has come to Canada for 15 years and is building a cot- tage in Ontario. He wrote the. Toronto Star last week that he hoped that the "hate America" philosophy will not extend to the point of harming normal relations between the two coun- tries. "For the first tune since I started to come to Canada, there seems to be a feeling that maybe they [the Ca- nadians) should just watch us," Cover said. "Maybe-there is something about us that isn't quite kosher." Cover said there are few Ca- nadians in the public eye "who do not feel that Americans are spawned by the devil." In what Cover called the public eye are many Canadians who are raising an alarm about American influence. on . the economy, on. schools and on national identity. They are pleased with -Canada's trade with Russia and Red China and glad that Canadian exports to the U. S. last year dropped to 65 pei: cent from 71 per cent in 1939. Trucleau spoke during his trip to Moscow two months ago of the "growing conscious- ness among Canadians of the danger of our national identity from a cultural, economic and perhaps even military point of view." Rejects Suggestions Robert B. Stanfield, Conserva- tive Party loader, said in a lecture at the National Defense College at Kingston, Out., that he rejected su estions there might be a military threat from the U. S. toward Canada. A commentator on national television recently suggested the existence of Pentagon plans for a military takeover of Can- Ha, if a government should come to power that Washington 1 icl e-rnp ta.x Approved For Releaigkiwwwon??., wATKDP80-01601R000400240001-4 ing documents which he would ; like to steal from the U. S. Cen- (ml Intelligence Agency or that Pentagon, were "unconfirmed, undocumented and possib I y even untrue." The New Democratic Party, which has been the Canadian political party most critical of the U. S. except for the Com- munists, has risen in popular- ity. ;New Democrats, who call themselves Socialists, form the governments in Manitoba and Saskatchewan and are a threat to the Conservative government in Ontario. They are gaining strength on the national scene. A recent public opinion poll showed the New Democrats neck and neck with Stanfield's, Conservatives for second place to Trudenu's Liberals.
