By PAt'l. JACKSON thai thoy understood each oilier Loughccd who openly spoke ot widening o( control from 01- news for Ottawa By PAt'l. JACKSON Ottawa ileralil Ilnrcau OTTAWA For Hie past week Camilla's provincial pro r.iicrs liavc undoubtedly been mucll of llwir time ns- sissing niul cxpliiinini; lu Ilioir close associates what was achieved at the 13th animal pre- miers conference which came to a close in Halifax just one week What achieved at that conference isn't likely to bo good news for the federal gov- ernment in Ottawa. Newspaper headlines through- out the country (old the story well enough. The headlines all carried basically the same mes- sage: Premiers predict shift in powers, premiers urge more de- centralization, New Era being forged for the provinces. Strong stuff. The story behind the head- lines was that nine of Canada's provincial premiers hart agreed that they understood each oilier lictler, in many ways, lhan tho federal government in far iiwny Ottawa understood them. Fear, in various degrees, was ex- pressed iiixnit Ottawa's inten- tions to venture increasingly areas of provincial jurisdic- tion. A sland, the premiers du- cided, had to be made. Premier Gerald Regan of Nora Scotia was est.itic in his assessment of the conference. He described it as a "significant turning point" in the lu'story of provincial i elatioas. Quebec Premier Robert Hourassa had earlier declined to assess the conference in exactly words, but the Quebec premier came out of the conference nav- ing made a lot of new friends among Itis fellow premiers. In fact, although all the pre- miers, including Mr. Dourassa, had denied that there was going to he any "srnnging up" on Ot- tawa by a united fror.t of Ihe provinces, it was Mr. fiourassa and Alberta premier Peter I.ougheed who opcniy spoke ot the way things wcro going to ho in the Mure. "It's said Mr. Uourassa, "that raoro will exist in Canada. It seems obvious that with a new generation of pre- miers in power Ihcre will ba more deccnlndizalion Timl this will be good for all regions of Cannda." Mr. I-ougliccd, who urged that nil the premiers should work to- gether for a co-operative and constructive federalism, empha- sized that while the provinces wanted federal government sup- portive and consullive lielp in many areas the provinces should be allowed to run their own shows. 'Hie Progressive Conservative premier pointed out that the provincial govern- ments, because of Canada's vsstaess and diversity, are ob- viously closer to the people than Is Ottawa. Help, advice and as- sistance by means, was what the new A 111 c r t a premier seemed to he saying, hut no widening o( control from 01- lav.a. All the provinces, with the ex- ception of British Columbia, ap- peared to have conic to the con- clusion that in a wide range of areas the provinces now iililt! to look after themselves with as little interference from Ottawa as possible, ft was a pily, a number of observers pointed out, that Premier A. C. Bennett of B.C. could not attend the conference. Ho wjis busy on ttie campaign for his province's Aug. 30 election. If he had attended, he would probably have found much to delight did Mr. Bour- ossa. .hist a year or so ago, it was reported that former Saskatche- wan premier Ross Thatcher couldn't understand Mr. Bouras- sa's arguments. "Wlir.t does this young French fella want was bow the late Liberal premier was supposed to have viewed Mr, Now, every premier knows what Mr. llourassa wants for Quebec nml they have (ho feeling that tliey want Ihe. same things for their own provinces. Mr. Ilourassa played a rela- tively low key role during thu conference. He left much of tho talking lo Premier William Davis of Ontario. The Ontario premier prior lo the conference was being hailed as Mr. Bouras- c.-.'s ncw-fousxl friend. After tho conference, it was obvious that Quebec's long heard demand thai 11 must have the Increased provincial power to handle its own internal affairs had off on tlie other provinces. Mr. Bourr.ssa had gained a lot of new friends. The stage had set before the actual conference got under way. Earlier, the Quebec and four Atlantic provinces had agreed they had something in common. Ottawa, they decided, was claiming loo much jurisdic- tion and royally privileges over ixricntial offshore oil and gas ricEies surrouiding their prov- inces. The five provinces sud- denly found they had a lot In common aitf, after on Initial meeting, decided to spend a day before the full premiers confer- ence discussing the situation IMJ- twecn themselves. Tho five were also undoubtedly gralilied to find Hint in the West, at least, there was a lot of sympathy for their position. By the end of the full two-day conference, nil the provinces had decided they had more In common than might have beon expected. In many ways and In many areas there wcro strong differences of opinion. That, however, helped convince Hie premiers that large-scale centralization was a bad thing. The premiers declined to soy that they had decided oit a "get tough" policy with Ottawa. But just how they do decide to flex their new muscles will be worth waiting for.
