Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Parliamentary notebook Trudeau elusive target By DAVE MflNTOSII OTTAWA (CP) As they say in the army, Prime Minister in the army, Prime Minister legislative program going Trudeau presents a very small dovm theVain if il gol involved in a long fight over the auditor- .._ rarely shows generai's bill. It had already enough of himself to make a (jlrce in a debate, good target. Recently, it appeared he presented a target as big as much longer than expected, on the anti-terrorist public order balloon for the opposition to shoot at. Shoot they too soon The balloon was pulled down Thursday by the government punctured and thrown away. The target was the govern ment bill to limit the powers of the auditor-general to look into and report on all cases of im- provident government spending he thinks Parliament should know about. The opposition began banging away at this prime target with gusto. Public comment was tartly critical too. The magic word, the aircraft earner refitted for million and then sold for scrap for less than served the op- position well. OPPOSITION UNITED Spokesmen for the Conserva- tives and HDP made it known their parties would force the government to halt debate by closure before they would ever allow the bill to go through. This is often said by opposi- tion MPs about government bills. But this time the opposi- tion meant it. More important, OBTAINS CERTIFICATION JACK LOOK The lethbridge Chapter of the Appraisal Institute of Canada wishes to announce that Jack took has completed the neces- sary courses to obtain the certi- fication of CRA.

The government could see its bill, now law. Moreover, there is considera- ble doubt that the government's new closure procedure, passed in 'ale but never used, is workable. Many experts believe the new rule in Ihis regard is more cum- bersome than the old closure procedure used to get parlia- mentary approval for Ihe new flag in 1966. STANFIELD MOVE Tuesday, Opposiiion Leader Robert Slanfield said he had asked all Conservative MPs to launch an all-out assault on the auditor-general's hill in their home ridings during the Christ- mas recess. He promised to campaign na- tionally againsl Ihe bill. The opposilion kept prodding in the Commons and Thursday the government agreed to with- draw the bill. But who was downcast? The Conservatives. They had hoped the bill would provide a good fighting issue for them for a long time. TOO EARLY Top Liberal party sources some Conservatives the Conservatives had peaked much loo soon on the issue. They contended that the Con- servatives should have played along until the bill had gone so far in the parliamentary mill lhat the government then felt obliged to push on regardless. The issue isn't dead because the opposilion can still dwell on Ihe governments refusal lo have given a raise to Auditor- General Maxwell Henderson for five years or lo his 28 senior of- ficials for three years. But it won't he nearly as lively with Ihe bill gone. Opposition members contend thai Ihe agreement of every Liberal in the Commons Thurs- day to the bill's withdrawal was a slap for the absent C. M. Drury, president of Ihe treasury board and chief author of Ihe legislalion.

At the same time, average weekly earnings of some 45 mil- lion workers dropped 66 cents to 5121.07 a week because of shorter working hours, said the bureau of labor statistics. Although the average pay cheque was more lhan five per cent larger than a year ago, the country's continuing worst infla- tion in more than 20 years cut purchasing power two per cent below a year ago, the bureau said. e Total employment dropped during the month to 78.7 million compared with a nor- mally expected rise in Novem- ber. The rise in unemployment was two-tenths of one per cent, from 5.6 to 5.8 per cent, highest since May, 1963, the bureau said. The number of jobless Ameri- cans rose during the month to 4.6 million, it said.

So is the Puget Sound area's economy, where unemployment already is about 12 per cent. King County Executive John Spellman, whose county in- cludes Sealtlc, said the decision "has a dramatically bad impact on our local economy at a lime when we really can't afford Ihis type of setback." Bill Lotto of the Seatlle Area Industrial Council, said the city "will jusl liave more of what we've been having." CONCERNED' Boeing said in a formal state- ment is Ls "deeply concerned" and is looking lo a House-Senate conference committee in hope the million appropriation will be reinstated. The House of Representatives had approved the appropriation earlier. Otherwise, Boeing said, "until the final vote is taken and the situation is clarified, it is nei- ther possible nor proper for Boeing to comment." The firm was hurt last June when the federal government awarded advanced manned bomber development, a multi-billion-dcllar project, to North American Rockwell. Boeing's Seattle-area work force nose-dived to as of the end of October, the latest available count, from a mid-l'JM peak of about It had said earlier about more would be lopped off by year's end. H.
