Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 LETHBRIDQE HERALD WwlntMay, April m, School principal striving to break two-party hegemony CHARLOTTETOWN (CP) -Political roots go long and deep in this pastoral province, but a new political leader with a traditional name thinks his New Democratic Party can change all that. Aquinas Ryan, a 42-year-old St. Peters school principal, is attempting to break two-party hegemony in Prince Edward Island politics. Admittedly a traditional man himself, Mr. Ryan was for years a diligent Liberal party worker who rose through the ranks from local organizer to the provincial executive. After three years on the executive, Mr. Ryan made an abrupt break with the Liberals in 1970, complaining of "disillusionment" and "political stagnation." "I was the provincial policy chairman and I didn't have anything to say about Mr. Ryan said in an interview. "All the decisions were being made in the political backrooms." "Only the NDP seemed to offer the average guy a say in what was going Mr. Ryan said in explaining his decision to join the New Democrats prior to the 1972 federal election. "1 was attracted by David Lewis because he and the party seemed interested in people. And he was saying big business had too much say in government. I agreed because I know it happens in PEL" He was an immediate success with the New Democrats, helping to fashion the party's emer- gence when it ran candidates in all four Island federal constituencies in the Oct. federal election. Mr. Ryan had 14 per cent of the popular vote in Cardigan riding and within a month was chosen provincial party leader. It was only a small dent, but party workers were encouraged and by December of the same year the NDP was back at the polls again to contest three provincial by elections. Although the NDP candidates averaged only seven per cent of the popular Ryan in- sists the prognosis is good. "Many Islanders are disillusioned with both the Liberals and he said. "The feeling I have, just from talking to people, is that we will be taking votes from both established parties." However, the New Democrats are admittedly broke and and the shortage of funds is hurting the party campaign. "Sure, we'd like to have all kinds of money for posters and he said. "But we don't, so we're just going to have to find another way a lot more getting out to meet the people and things like that." He said party success will measured in the popular vote and that he doesn' think 20 per cent is an unrealistic figure. be largely lat he doesn't "Given the present mood I think we can do well. Even one or two NDP members of the legislature might be enough to significantly influence government policy."
