Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, April 1974-THE LETMBHlPOt Tories question Trudeau holiday OTTAWA The official Opposition in Parliament is doing its best to make sure that Prime Minister Trudeau's absence on holiday with his family in Barbados does not go unnoticed by the taxpayers. Three direct references to his surprise Easter vacation being taken when the Commons is giving up its own previously scheduled holiday to deal with inflation were made Monday during the daily question period in the House. Cancelling reservations he had booked with Air Canada, the Prime Minister flew out on the week-end, aboard a Transport Department Jet Star with his wife Margaret and sons Justin and Sasha. The unofficial word is that he may be away a week or even as long as 10 days. The three MPs focussing Parliamentary attention on the Prime Minister's Easter break in the sunny West Indies were Conservatives Tom Cossitt of Eastern Ontario, Sinclair Stevens of the Toronto area and Joseph Clarke of Alberta. Mr. Cossitt was first to raise'it, amid groans of "Oh, from the Liberals. His action was "self- he observed, since it arose from "the problem of inflation which is Inflation big problem EDMONTON (CP) Inflation is certain to make bargaining between teachers and school boards more difficult in the days ahead, Dr. Murray Jampolsky of Edmonton, president of the Alberta Teachers' Association, said Monday. He told about 450 teachers at a policy making conference that inflation is out of control and governments are incapable of stopping it. Leduc seeks new county DARYTON VALLEY (CP) Residents of the west end of Leduc County live under conditions "20 years behind the times" and would benefit from a change in county boundaries, says Rusty Zander, Drayton Valley MLA. Residents of the area 60 miles southwest of Edmonton have applied to the provincial boundaries commission for creation of a new county centering around Drayton Valley.

Then he moved for unanimous consent from the House to direct Acting Prime Minister Sharp "to inform us whether the Prime Minister, before leaving Canada on another holiday" and he gave that "another" heavy emphasis left behind any contingency plans for dealing with the national emergency created by the cost of living and if such plans do exist that they be revealed immediately to this House because of the extreme emergency of the situation." There were cheers from the Tories. And protests of were heard from the Liberals in denying the requested unanimous consent for such a report. But this didn't stop the Leeds Tory who came out into the Commons lobby to promise that today he would be asking Mr. Sharp whether the Prime Minister was keeping the Jet Star in Barbados for the duration of the holiday or sending it back to Ottawa with orders to return to pick him up later. "Either said Mr. Cossitt, "it's costing the taxpayers a bundle." EDMONTON (CP) A slight moderation from 1973's impressive economic growth in Alberta is expected in 1974, the department of industry and commerce said today. That's the opinion of 300 executives who head major provincial business enterprises and were surveyed by the department. A report on the survey, made in March, said growth is expected to moderate because of difficulty in obtaining adequate supplies of raw materials, a slowing consumer demand brought on by resistance to rising prices, and uncertainty created by the positions of both the federal and provincial governments on energy policy. Slower growth in sales, prices, profits, capital spending and employment is expected, although the province's rate of growth will probably exceed that anticipated for the country as a whole. The survey indicated that 116 projects are either under construction or proposed for which could involve more than billion in investment and produce an additional 7.400 permanent jobs in Alberta. INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT The largest concentration of industrial acitivity will take place in the northeastern, Edmonton and southeastern regions of the province, with industrial investment to be used mainly to develop the petroleum and petrochemical products, manufacturing and agricultural processing industries. The survey indicates that although 1974 may witness a healthy economy in Alberta from the standpoint of production, employment and incomes, the province may also suffer from increasing shortages of raw materials, labor and a high rate of inflation. In general, the supply of materials in Alberta appeared with steel being the scarcest. Steel consumers in the province were being asked to wait six to 12 months for steel supplies and the non availability of structural, angle and reinforcing steel was delaying several construction projects Steel plate was reported by some consumers to be "virtually non existent." The situation was not expected to improve throughout 1974. Supplies of other basic raw materials such as cement and lumber were also reported tight, but producers feel that demand will be met in 1974. Unity call is snubbed by Gaullist candidates ytnpc guns This editorial cartoon, drawn by Eric Heath of the Dominion newspaper in Wellington, New Zealand, is one of numerous submissions to an international exhibition of news photographs and cartoons opening at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. The cartoon was drawn after a number of Israeli competitors were killed by terrorists at the 1972 Munich Olympics. PARIS (Reuter) Rival pro-Gaullist contenders for the French presidency pressed ahead with their election campaigns Monday, ignoring a new call to unite behind a single Gaullist candidate. 'The futile call by a Gaullist- led group of ministers and parliamentarians for a single government candidate' appeared to underline the dissension in the Gaullist camp over who should succeed the late President Georges Pompidou. The unity Saturday night by Interior Minister Jacques Chirac, three other ministers and 39 members of interpreted as a sign of dissatisfaction with Jacques Chaban-Delmas, who has the official backing of the Gaullist party in the May 5 presidential election. Chaban-Delmas. who did not heed an earlier call to withdraw in favor of Prime Minister Pierre Messmer as the sole Gaullist candidate. paid no attention to the new appeal to step aside. He went ahead with plans to barnstorm the country. So did his major rival on the right. Finance Minister Valery Giscard d'Estaing, leader of the Gaullist-allied Independent Republicans. Chirac and his group insisted that their call for a single candidate was not aimed at Chaban-Delmas but was an appeal for unity in Gaullist ranks to block the way to the presidency of the sole left-wing candidate.
