Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, April zv, inc UB nDHiuue HEHMI-U Parties gear for election By DAVE BLAIKIE OTTAWA (CP) The next federal election may be far in the future, but the Progressive Conservative and New Democratic parties are getting ready to fly this spring, if necessary. Both are making charter arrangements for planes to hustle their leaders around the country when electioneering starts. The Liberals also may be making arrangements, but no one is commenting. Social Credit Leader Real Caouette, with all his MPs based in Quebec, never has chartered a campaign plane. On torays outside the province, he has travelled by commercial aircraft. In the 1972 campaign, both Prime Minister Trudeau and Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield chartered Air Canada DC-9 jets, with cabins redesigned to accommodate entourages. NDP Leader David Lewis covered the early weeks of the campaign by commercial aircraft, but switched in the home stretch to a twin-engine Dart Herald, leased from Eastern Provincial Airways. He dubbed it Bum Air, after his corporate-rip-off campaign theme, and christened it with a bottle of Maritime beer the day he picked it up in Sydney, N.S. For the next election, says a party spokesman, the NDP is opting for something "a little bigger and a little faster." No contract has been signed but negotiations are under way. A Conservative official said the party began making arrangements some time ago with Air Canada for another campaign charter. It probably will lease another DC-9, but the final choice will depend on air- craft available when the election writ is issued, he said. The 1972 aircraft were preared for the individual campaign needs of the leaders. The Dart Herald seated about 30 passengers, compared with 62 for Mr. Stanfield's DC-9 and roughly the same number on the Trudeau plane. The inside configurations on the Trudeau and Stanfield planes were similar. Each cabin was divided into three sections. The leaders stayed up front with immediate staff members, campaign organizers and other party officials occupied a small mid-section, and the press, television crews and flight attendants filled the larger rear section. Bum Air entered campaign service almost unchanged from its design for commercial flights around the eastern provinces. The only variation was the addition of two small tables at the front and rear. There were no partitions. Mr. Lewis used the rear table for much of the campaign. His staff and the press competed for the front table. Drinks were free on the Trudeau plane, and sometimes on the Lewis campaign The Conservatives charged going Air Canada rates, 50 cents for beer and for 1.6-ounce shots of liquor.

Re-elected during the AFL's three-day annual convention, Mr. Basken said a strike gives working people their best opportunity to bring their side of a dispute to the attention of the public. "We'd be happy to have an alternative to he said. Mr. Basken, a representative of the Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers International Union, said labor is growing more concerned with topics outside its former sphere. He said the federation plans to focus on consumer affairs, alcohol and drug abuse in industry, and the mental health of workers this year. In addition, the AFL has been authorized by its membership to form a consumer affairs council.

Flood damage estimate this week EDMONTON (CP) The government expects to determine this week how and when it will make compensation payments to victims of spring floods in Alberta. Deputy Premier Dr. Hugh Homer told the legislature Friday the decision will be made after preliminary aerial surveys of the flooded areas are completed. Dr. Homer, replying to questions from Peter Trynchy (PC said his earlier estimate that flooding caused million in damage appears to be accurate. Flood victims will be able to claim for residential property, personal effects and agricultural losses. 3-year-old N.S. claims "not paid9 DARTMOUTH. N.S. (CP) Mayor Eileen Stubbs of Dartmouth says she is tired of hearing talk of flood aid for Western Canada when the federal government still has not paid out more than fl- million in flood damage claims submitted by Dartmouth almost three years ago when Nova Scotia was hit by the tail end of Hurricane Beth. Mrs. Stubbs said the city is keeping records of all flood damage claims during the 1971 storm and will pay them whenever the federal government pays up.
