When Maclean's began an active campaign to significantly expand its business coverage nearly six months ago, a main priority was the recruitment of an outstanding national business correspondent. The successful candidate had to be someone who felt comfortable reporting major business and economic trends from Halifax’s Barrington Street, Montreal’s St. James Street, Toronto’s Bay Street, Vancouver’s Howe Street to Wall Street and the City of London.

Your Aug. 20 editorial (“Time For Tough Choices,” From the Editor’s Desk) and your articles about the conflict in the Middle East (“The winds of war,” Cover) smack of government propaganda. Iraq’s Saddam Hussein is a tyrant, but it is also true that there have been many tyrants in other countries that the Canadian government has done nothing about.

DIED: Psychologist B. F. (Burrhus Frederic) Skinner, 86, of leukemia, in a Cambridge, Mass., hospital. Skinner, the author of such influential works as Beyond Freedom and Dignity, was a pioneer of the theory known as behaviorism. He postulated that humans, like all organisms, are shaped by their environment, and through experiments with rats and pigeons he demonstrated that systems of positive and negative reinforcement, similar to reward and punishment, could reshape behavior patterns.

CHARLES GORDON
Politicians figure all the angles. Or at least they think they do. Sometimes the voters figure one more angle than the politicians. When that happens, the politicians are dismayed, not to mention defeated. People think it can’t happen in an age of scientifically drawn opinion polling, but it still can.

Week seven of the standoff began in a disarmingly sportsmanlike fashion. Shortly after arriving to replace beleaguered Quebec provincial police officers at a roadblock near the Kahnawake reserve south of Montreal last week, officers from the Canadian army’s Royal 22nd Regiment walked halfway to an opposing barricade manned by armed Mohawks.

Mayor Jean-Bosco Bourcier finally gave the frustrated residents of the Montreal suburb of Châteauguay something to cheer about last week. With the wave of a borrowed hard hat, he sent three bulldozers into action clearing land for the start of construction on an 8.4-km stretch of highway to shorten the commuters’ detour around the blockaded Mercier Bridge across the St. Lawrence River.

As tension mounted ever higher in the Persian Gulf and exiled Kuwaiti government ministers warned that war seemed inevitable, Iraqi President Saddam Hussein staged a rivetting television spectacular. Wearing a grey business suit and an avuncular smile, he appeared on videotape talking to a group of British “guests,” as he called them, at one of the undisclosed strategic locations where his regime is holding Westerners to discourage attack.

It was the first time in nearly half a century that Canadian navy vessels had sailed out of fabled Halifax harbor into a potential war zone. And despite the cloud of controversy swirling around their mission, a mood of resolve and high purpose marked the departure of the destroyers Athabaskan and Terra Nova and the supply ship Protecteur as they left at 2 p.m. local time Friday for the three-week voyage to the Gulf of Oman.

But in vacation spots across most of the country, from picturesque Peggy’s Cove in Nova Scotia to Victoria’s historic harbor on Vancouver Island, members of Canada’s tourism industry are worried.

The slowing Canadian economy continues to buffet the retail sector. Statistics Canada reported that retail sales in June— worth approximately $17.3 billion—were down 0.3 per cent from the same month a year earlier. For the first six months combined, retail trade was up only 2.5 per cent from the same period in 1989, making it the most sluggish opening half since the 3.1-per-cent growth of 1982.

Despite strong signals that Canada's economy is faltering, its dollar is soaring to its highest level since July, 1978. The dollar's dramatic ascent—it closed last week at 88.07 cents (U.S.)—was an unexpected result of Iraq’s Aug. 2 invasion of neighboring Kuwait.

It didn’t rank at the top of his mad agenda, but President Saddam Hussein may have saved Canada’s navy. As the tiny flotilla of two destroyers and a supply vessel slipped out of Halifax harbor last week, they carried with them the best wishes of the country and a sigh of relief from admirals, happy that their ships had found an honorable task to occupy their time.
