    An air of suspense hung over the opening of the fourth session of Canada’s 28th Parliament. Political observers freely predicted that it would be the final session before a general election and that the skirmishes in the House would set the stage for the campaign on the hustings. The government, however, lagged far behind on its legislative programme. A number of bills, including the Competition Act, amendments to the Canada Labour Code, legislation to set up the Family Income Security Plan, and a bill to ban the advertising of cigarettes, had failed to pass through the previous session. But with...

With the end of American participation in the Vietnam war in sight, a major source of discord between the United States, the Soviet Union, and China was alleviated. President Nixon completed his historic visit to China, and his trip to the Soviet Union coincided with the signing of a strategic arms limitation agreement. Relations between Russia and eastern Europe on the one hand, and the...

  8. The National Economy
    (pp. 329-376)
    JIM CUTT

    The organizational format followed in this section is similar to that employed in the corresponding section of the canadian annual review for 1971 in which an initial statistical overview of the Canadian economy is followed by discussion of a set of selected policy problems. The discussion of policy problems for 1972 presupposes the definition of national policy objectives set out in the canadian annual review for 1971 (pp. 309–10).

    This section draws on the following sources: Statistics Canada,Canadian Statistical Review(monthly); Statistics Canada,National Income and Expenditure Accounts(quarterly); Statistics Canada,Quarterly Estimates of the Canadian Balance of...
