Eleelcd Majorilies The Quebec Story: Cheers Arid Tears By B.ttAY QUEBEC (CP) The Crcdi- astes slapped together a provm- cial political parly in January, elected a leader in March and won 13 legislature seals in April. But they don't exactly pop up from nowhere. Their performance m Wednes- day's Quebec general election was in cltect a rerun ot the Creditiste success si or} in eral politics. Involved are (he same rural region, Hie same angry people and the same skilful political or- ganizers They won in ridings around Quebec City, in the Eastern Townships and in northwestern Quebec, Iheir strong spots federally. Their entry into provincial politics cost Premier Jean- Fortier (L) Gatincau-xRoy Fournier (L) (L) Fraser (L) Iberville-xAlfred Croisetiere (UN) 782.

Their decision to come into provincial politics after several of hesitation dates lo the 1968 federal election, when the late Premier Daniel Johnson backed Robert SlanDeld's To- ries in several Quebec ridings in an effort lo stop Pierre Tni- deau's Liberals. The Union NaHonale-backed Tory campaigns in several rid- department, ings spoiled the M chances of victory. Real Caooettfi's federal Crttu tales, who elected 14 member! lo Parliament anyway, vinved rat lo forget the Union Nation ale's role. The CrerJitisles founded their party al a convention last Jan 25, bul Ihey didn't nave a leade when Premier Bertrand called ZrHte. the elecBon March 12. So they organized what Creditiste PR man described a "a miracle convention." SAMSON WON Elected leader was Canul Samson, a 35-year-okl car sales- man from Rouyn. He was elected to Ihe legislature in Rttiyn-Noranda The Creditisle campsigt was ample: They coucertrated on regions where the federal Credi- tiste? won 26 ComiDons seals in 1962, 20 in 1963 and nine in 1965. Mr. Caouetie and the other led- eral MPs came in lo help. The performance of the Credi- tistes spells trouble jor the Union Nationale, which once had the conservative elements m rural regions aQ to itself. Their campaign bared inrtigna- tioo of rural Quebecers wtti high taies and prices for farm produce.
