Jg THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, August 27, 1970 It Isn't All Play And No Work For Footloose Trudeau OTTAWA (CP) Footloose Pierre EUioit Trudeau was tak- ing Hie sun in the British Hon- duras as 1970 began. That same Christmas recess found him skiing for a week in the French Alps. At Easter, lie skied in British Columbia's Garibaldi Park. In June, en route to open Roberts Bank, a new port near Vancou- ver, he hiked and surfed at Long Beach National Park. Last week he went skindiving for a week in the Caribbean. This week ho is believed to be yachting in the Mediterranean, Even on vacation he doesn't escape work, his office said. He takes it with him. But the work- ing hours aren't as long as when he's in Ottawa, when they usually run for more than those of the average man. "He didn't sign on for a 40- hour an aide said as a reporter raised the subject in an interview. The latest two-week vacation, interrupted by a brief cabinet meeting Friday night, has gen- erated some criticism from the political opposition. Even Danish Prime Minister H i 1 m a r Baunsgaard, visiting Montreal during the weekend, said Mr. Trudeau seemed to be away a lot. Prune Minister Baunsgaard came to Ottawa Monday to talk with Acting Prime Minister Mitchell Sharp, the external af- fairs minister, and attend a meeting of world federalists. Mr. Trudeau left the night be- fore for Europe. Most vocal opposition critic has been George Hees nee who the prime minister shouldn't be away with the na- tional postal dispute unsettled. Creditiste Leader Real Caouette also has criticized Mr. Trudeau for holidaying at this period. Former prime minister John Diefenbaker, saying that he used to be criticized for taking few days off to go fishing, said in Winnipeg Monday that the Trudeau record is one of "continued vacations and hoped-for vacations." Aides say that on the current vacation, as on others, Mr. Tru- deau has taken along a stack of state papers as well as Michael Pitfield, deputy secretary to the cabinet for planning. They also note that mediator Thomas O'Connor was ap- pointed last week to try to bring about a postal settlement. Mr. Trudeau couldn't intervene with a mediator at work, they say. Mr. Trudeau did say Friday night he expected results shortly. Trudeau the traveller was well known long before he be- came prime minister. He took long canoe trips on northern riv- ers, crossed deserts on camel- back, met Chairman Mao in Pe- king, swam the Bosporus, bicy- cled through Europe. Faulty Headlight Blamed For Death Of Motorcyclist EDMONTON (CP) An RCMP constable warned a 15- year-old motorcyclist one mid- night to get his headlight fixed becuase he didn't want to pick up the boy's body. Twenty-four hours later the game constable had to do just that. Constable 3. G. Fetterly was testifying Tuesday at an inquest into the June 21 death of Wayne Joseph Frederick, who lives just south of Edmonton. The boy was killed instantly When his motorcycle collided with a car on a rural road south of the city. Both the driver and a pas- senger of UK car told the in- quest they didn't see the motor- cycle until the moment of im- pact. The jury attached no blame to the driver of the car. Chief provincial coroner, Dr M. M. Cantor said: "I am loath to suggest any further restrictions on yourig people but 1 feel today's teen- agers haven't the responsibility that teen-agers had in my gen- eration." Dr. Cantor said persons under 16 should not be allowed blanket freedom in the operation ol motor vehicles. College Named After MacEwan EDMONTON (CP) The city's new community college is to be called Grant MacEwan Community College, it was an- nounced today. The recommendation to name the college after Alber- tha's lieutenant-governor came from the college's board of gov- ernors and was approved to- day by a cabinet order-in-eoun- Trudeau Trip OTTAWA Min- ister Trudeau plans to visit the Gaspe, Quebec's north shore and Labrador next week.

OFF TO THE NORTH Shortly after becoming prime minister in I'M, he made an ex- tensive tour of the North, then took off for a week's vacation on the Spanish island of Ibiza. This was the first of a series of private vacation trips "to the Mediterranean" or "to the Car- as his office puts it discreetly. When official tours are added, his mileage becomes astonish- ing. Highlight this year was a 19-day Pacific tour of seven countries. An autumn visit to the Soviet Union is still in the tentative stage. Meanwhile, within Canada, he probably has seen as much of the people in the last yyar as former prime ministers tiid dur- ing an election campaign. He manages to mix business with pleasure on the official tours. While in the country's northwest earlier this summer, he took time to boat the storied Nahanni River in the Northwest Territories. On the Asian trip he went yachting for two days off Aus- tralia, received his black belt in judo while in Japan, swam in Kuala Lumpur. The vacation trips have raised questions about who pays. The usual way in which public money is involved in a vacation trip is through use of a govern- ment plane. Aides say such plane use is necessary when the prime minister is off the beaten track, so he can return quickly if necessary, and add the vaca- tions usually mix work in with the pleasure. On his trip to the Caribbean last week, Mr. Trudeau used, the transport department Jet Star He spent several days at An- dros, an out-island in the Baha- mas, then chartered a flight to Nassau and boarded the JetStar to go to St. Thomas in the Vir- gin Islands. He returned to Otlawa Friday night, then left from Trenton, Ont., Sunday on the weekly air force flight to Lahr, West Ger- many, getting off at some point to visit an undisclosed place in the Mediterranean.

Mr. Tmdeau's aides say he needs to get away at intervals and note that he always lakes part of the job with him, usually completing many hours of read ing.
