December 1974
Time;12/16/1974, Vol. 104 Issue 25, p52
The article reports on the aspiration of national independence in Canada. It states that the sense of patriotism is attributed to the fact that Canada is the only Western industrial nation that is self-sufficient in energy and does not hesitate on asserting its strength which sometimes embarrasses the U.S. It notes that the Canadian government has increased the tax on its oil exports to the U.S. which makes it the most expensive crude in the Chicago market. It further details that there is a sense of anti-American spirit in Canada particularly in Ontario and Toronto. Details related to the issue is also presented.
