Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETMBRIDCE HCRAID Solurdey, August 51, 1771 You Ask Mi by MYRON JOHNSON This is a dull election campaign, a newsman re- marked 1o me recently. 1 [mind myself agreeing with him. though it seem- ed to me strange that, it should be so. On the face of it, this should be one of the most exciting pro- vincial elections in Alberta's history. For the first time in many years, probably since Social Credit came to power in 1935, the outcome of the election is in doubt. There is, in [act, a real possibility Social Credit's long reign will end Aug. 30. the lack of interest? One reason may be the hot August weather, which tends to stifle en- thusiasm for anything except a shady tree and a tall glass of frosty. But more important, I think, is that the outcome of the election doesn't matter a great deal to a lot, of Albertans, because there aren't differ- ences between the two leading parties, Social Credit and Progressive Conservative. Indeed, NDP leader Grant Notley sees so little difference between the Socreds and the Conserva- tives he has dubbed them "the Tory Twins." While this is an exaggeration, it is not wholly inaccurate, for the families are surely related. It. would be more accurate to call them "the Tory- Premier Harry Strom is the country cousin, Conservative leader Peter Lougheed the city cousin. And while the city cousin may regard his country cousin as a bit unsophisticated, and the country cou- sin consider his city cousin a they don't have any basic disagreements. Of course there are differences between the two parties on specific issues. Social Credit is relying largely on its "record of good al- though it has proposed the controversial grant to home buyers, which appears to be developing as an important election issue. The Conservatives are concentrating on a number of issues such as protection of individual rights, great- er municipal autonomy, complete provincial funding of education, and unsightly strip mining. Nevertheless, the Socred and Conservative politi- cal philosophies arc substantially the same. Both be- lieve in a fairly unrestricted free enterprise economy for the rich, a touch of welfare statism for the poor and a generous slice of Alberta apple pie for the middle class. The New Democratic Party does offer an alter- native to the Tory philosophy of'the Conservatives and Socreds, but the NDP cannot be considered a serious threat in this election. The NDP will probably increase its vote from the 16 per cent figure in 1967 and, with luck, could take four or five seats in northern Alberta. But the best it can hope for is to hold the balance of power if the PCs and Socreds evenly split the bulk of the scats. It is difficult at this point to predict the outcome of the election because of a number of unanswered questions: Where will the Liberal vote go11 Where will the youth vote go? Can Premier Strom hold the bulk of the Social Credit vote now that Ernest Man- ning has retired from provincial politics? The most that can be said is that it looks like a close election, and that the voters will decide which brand of conservatism they like.

Mr. Wick, who was trained in Cambridge and has expe- periencc in Toronto, at Selkirk College in Casllcgar and the past four years in Lelhhridgc, said he feels this is more than just a library fnr the univer- sity.
