Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, April 17, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Modern law rnforcer ROYAL BUSS Britain's Princess Margaret received a kiss on her hand from Prince Bernard of the Nelherlands as she arrived at Carpenters' Hall in London, far a banquet. The banquet was given by Queen Juliana and Prince Bernharcl who arc in Britain on a state visit- Top political parties count London police force has new boss noses on OTTAWA (CP) With the] Trudeau government approach- ing the end of its fourth year in office, Conservatives and Liber- als are counting noses to help them decide when an election should he called. Doth major parties conducted polls in tlie first three months of the year and, publicly at least, profess to find encouragement in them. Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield apparently is finding more to cheer him than is Prime Minister Trudeau, and is demanding a spring election. M- Trudeau has been re- ported less than content with the results of public anci party polls. For that reason, it is said, he is not planning a June elec- tion. But Senator Richard Stan- bury, president of the National Liberal Federation, said in an interview this week that the re- sult of private and public polls are about the same and show the Liberals gaining strength. KEY TO STRATEGY Polls are an important part of any political parly's election strategy for they tell leaders what to emphasize and where to do it. But they tell only the situation at the time the polls are taken, and all recognize that situations can change radically. For what they are worth, these are reported results, not necessarily complete, of Liberal and Conservative polls in Feb- ruary and March: The Liberal poll is reported to show ( the party is weak in British Columbia, where it holds most of the seals, In Toronto and in traditionally-Liberal Montreal. The party was said to be gaining on the Prairies, where it has been weak. The Conservatives are re- ported to have found they are gaining in B.C.. holding their own on the Prairies and holding strong in the Atlantic provinces. That poll also is said to have found the largest number of un- decidcd voters in Ontario and strength for Social Credit in Quebec, whore, that pally now holds 13 of the 74 seats. i It also showed Mr. Stanfield is picking up the main concerns of and economics, an official says. The larger number of unde- cided voters across the country, as reflected in a recent public poll, is reported to be of con- cern to both parties. But Conservatives say they have more to gain from the sit- uation than the Liberals, who now hold 149 of the 2G4 seats in the House of Commons, com- pared with 72 for the Conserva- tives. In fact, the Conservatives feel they have nowhere to go but up in an election. They say the re- sult of the last party poll is the reason Mr. Stanfield is demand- ing that Mr. Trudeau hold a June election. The part y is particularly buoyed about B.C. where there are no Conservative MPs and] where Social Credit Premier W. A. C. Bennett has stated he will oppose Mr. Trndean. In addition, the party says it believes there is a resurgence of Co.iS.. v-atism in the province. Mr. Trndeau has not ruled out a June election. Rut he has said he has told Liberal associations "for goodness sake, slow down the machine." Mr. Stanfield says Mr. Trn deau is saying today much the same thing he said before call- ing the June, 1SM5IJ, election, and the PCs must be ready for this June. LONDON CAP) Robert] Mark, a square-jawed, brainy policeman, takes over this week as boss of a London police force shaken by troubles. As lop man at Scotland Yard he'll need all bis assets to build public confidence in the force.
