Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 _ THF IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday. April 14, 19 3 Spring ballot imlikley OTTAWA (CP) -Although the latest public opinion polls give more encouragement to the Liberals than the Con- servatives, sources close to Prime Minister Trudeau say he has abandoned all thoughts of calling a spring election without waiting for a parliamentary de- feat. "While the possibility was dis- cussed said a source, "I am not bure he considered it anyway." The prime minister is said to lAUNDhH PARKS1DE COIN-OP LAUNDRY DRY CLEAN 2634 SOUTH PARKSIDE DRIVE 72 INGLIS WASHERS PLUS 25-LB, WASHER 6 INGLIS DRYERS QUALITY DRY CLEANING BY THE LOAD PHONE 3270811 be planning an exhaustive schedule well into August, and this includes many events he wants to see completed before facing another election cam- paign. Quite apart from two visits to Canada bv the Queen, along with the Commons catlh heads- of-government conference here in August, Mr. Trudeau is said to be anxious to get on with the western economic conference in Calgary July 25-26 before an- other vote is held. And before this, he is plan- ning to attend a western Liberal policy conference in Vancouver, June" 23-24. He now is making plans for his May 23-25 meeting here with all provincial premiers. And from a practical view- point, say the sources, none of the major events is likely to do the prime minister any harm. Even entertaining the Queen on her two long before the Oct. 31 general elec- hurt the prime min- ister's image in English Can- ada, where the party must look for support to gain ground. The Calgary economic confer- ence, with all western premiers, is also being seen as a vehicle for halting the alleged alien- ation in that part of the coun- try. Party officials, expecting a sharp drop in unemployment over the next few months, say the prime minister has every- thing to gain bv waiting until, at least, the fall. And, in view of the drop in Conservative pop- ularity shown in the latest pub- lic opinion poll, they feel that party will want a pause to reas- sess its strategy. "But in a minority Parlia- ment we can't bank on any- thing." said one official. If Mr. Trudeau were to call a June election he would, for all practical purposes, have to an- nounce it by the weekend of April 20, for voting on June 13. He would be unlikely to call a vote for the last Monday in the Queen is visiting Toronto. The complex election proce- dure requires about 57 days be- tween the announcement and actual voting. Alberta ''seeded? with flu germs EDMONTON (CP) Alber- ta is in for a more widespread dose of the London flu next winter than it got last winter, says Dr. Williami Watt, the province's director of local health units. Dr. Watt said in an inter- view that the province has been "seeded" with the flu strain and he expects more cases next winter. He said the London flu strain was spotted in Britain nine months before it broke out in large numbers and Alberta may be in the same prelimin- ary stages. Thirteen cases of the strain were proven in Alberta labor- atories this winter, Dr. Watt said, but there is no way of EAST AFRICA from Choose 14 Safari holi- days amidst Africa's unique wildlife reserves and tropical beaches.

Dr. Watt feels the province is "seeded" because isolated cases were scattered all over the province. He said prospects for a vac- cine against the strain being available in time are poor be- cause vaccinations would have to be done by the fall for im- munity to be built up by No- vember-December, the worst flu months. He said Albertans were lucky this winter.

"Foice of unborn" protests EDMONTON (CP) The voice of the Unborn Associa- tion of Alberta has asked the provincial government to de- lete therapeutic abortion from the schedule of medical bene- fits payable under the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan. "So many of Alberta's citi- zens deplore the fact that their taxes and premiums are help- ing to pay for surgical proced- ures which destroy life, that it is incumbent on the provincial government to take action which would alleviate deep con- cern on the part of many Al- the as- sociation said in a brief. The association said it does not believe that it was the intent of the government "when implementing the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan, that many of the province's be forced to pay for are strictly against their consciences." The brief refers to a clause of the Alberta Health Care Insur- ance regulations which says the commission will pay a physi- cian who has rendered a basic health service.

AUCTIONEERS: GERALD THOMPSON DAVE McNAB license No. 594 license No. 670 Phone 627-4278 Phone 234-2206 OTTAWA The federal Pro- gressive Conservatives have been hit badly by three sudden and stunning blows within as many days. The blows have shaken the confidence of many Progressive Conservative MPs and support- ers who a few weeks ago opti- mistically figured it was only a matter of time before Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau's government capitu- lated and Opposition leader Robert Stanfield took up resi- dence at 24 Sussex Drive. Early this week it became known that Liam O'Brian, the party's national director, had decided to quit his position and return to private business. Mr. O'Brian, a dynamic, dedi- cated and well-liked political figure, was responsible for much of the groundwork behind the Conservatives' highly suc- cessful Oct. 30th federal elec- tion campaign which pulled the party up from 73 to 107 seats- just two seats behind the Liber- als. In announcing Mr. O'Brian's resignation, Mr. Stanfield ac- knowledged that the national di- rector's "efforts and dedication were a major factor in tiie tre- mendous increase in strength and support the party enjoyed during the last general elec- tion." The Conservatives will ob- viously try and fill the vacancy with someone of similar capabi- lities, but most would accept that it's going to de difficult to find someone to actually match Mr. O'Brian's many qualities. The second shock for Mr. Stanfield and his band of follow- ers came with the result of the latest Gallup Poll The poll showed the Liberals favored by 40 per cent of the voting public, tie Conservatives down by six points to 30 per cent, the New Party up slightly to 20 per cent and 10 per cent fa- voring other parties. Mr. Stanfield tried to appear not to be too concerned about the Gallup results. After all, that poll underestimated Con- servative strength badlv during the federal election campaign. The Conservatives are now awaiting results from their own polling organization, Market Opinion Research of Detroit. It was this company which accu- rately predicted the Oct. 30th federal election would end up a and neck" affair. Market Opinion Research also success- fully predicted the devastating end of the three-decade-old rule of Social Credit in Alberta and the breakthrough of Premier Peter Lougheed's Conservatives in 1971, and the huge success of Ontario Premier William Davis' provincial Conservatives the same year. However, despite the fact the PCs, with some justification, have little confidence in the Gallup poll the results are at least a psychological blow to them. The figures do nothing to enhance the Tories' image with the public. The latest blow to the party came late Thursday afternoon when Ontario Premier Davis announced a two per cent hike to seven per cent in the provin- cial sales tax. Naturally, the hike was met with groa'ns by just about every Ontario wage earner and consumer. The budget move will hit the federal Progressive Con- servatives since their huge gains in Ontario Oct. 30th were in part due to a vigorous and energetic campaign put on by Mr. Davis' much fabled "Big Blue Machine'. The Ontario premier prom- ised he would give Mr. Stanfield half of the province's 88 federal seats, and he did come pretty close at 40. That was an im- pressive jump from a low 17 at the 1968 federal election. If a federal election is called within the next few months. Mr. Davis, who is bound to undergo a bout of unpopularity because of the sales tax boost, will ob- viously find it difficult to drum up the same support for Mr. StahfieJd that he accomplished last year. In three swift and unexpected moves, then, the federal party has been clobbered. The clob- bering has raised speculation about Mr. Trudeau calling a federal election for June. It has also raised speculation about renewed challenges iu Mr. Stanfield's leadership. Al- though he raised the party strength from 73 to 107 seats last Oct. 30th, it stiil only gives the Conservatives 10 seats more than they had when Mr. Stanfield took over the lead- ership reins. sider replacing it without cost to the owner." The Toronto group, members of the newly-formed Association of Dissatisfied Firenza Owners, had hoped to meet GM of Can- ada president John Baker. But he was out of town and four members of the group in- stead met with William Austin, GM director of public relations. Mr. Austin said of the four-cylinder Firenzas were im- ported to Canada in 1971 and 1972, and the decision to halt imports was based on new leg- islation in Canada covering emission control and shock-ab- sorbing bumpers. Inclusion of the necessary equipment on the Firenzas would have required practically a new assembly line at Vaux- hall, he said, a move not fea- sible for the or so cars a year for this market. Total annual production of the Firenza is about Members of the group were not entirely happy with Mr. Austin's suggestion that they consult with their dealers on an individual basis, not as a group. After the meeting, Bob Moore, leader of the group, said: "We want them to take the cars off our hands. They're no good to us The only sug- gestion we could make was to take them off the road."
