Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta f> f, 3IAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY Thomas .lolley, 27, who renounced his citizenship and moved In Canada in Mil, and since rciurnccl lo Talla-hassu, Florida, to work as a reporter for the Tallahassee Democrat, is u "Man Without a Country." The Supreme Court refused (o hear his case, and he has nnlil 7 to leave the coimlrv OTTAWA (CP) Conservatives have compcleld a Ihi-ce-clav national policy convention with unbridled enthusiasm. But, oddly enough, few seemed to dwell on policy. The scenl of a possible political victory in a federal election expected next year offered the cwtcmcnl. With public opinion polls showing an increase in Conservative popularity, with reports of vastly improved party finances and with pointed pledges of support from provincial leaders, the policy convention turned into a lel's-go-gel-them campaign launching. "I have never seen this type of enthusiasm at a national convention." said an Ontario cabinet minister. "But 1 am still nol exactly sure where it's being channelled." II didn't appear to be channelled into the policy workshops where, with several notable exceptions, the discussions were generally dull and often poorly attended. Under the policy-making machinery involved, it was difficult to relate the discussions with possible changes in official party policy. Under the system, party headquarters prepared a list pi about 2IJO resolutions which were discussed, eliminated or revised in three different work shops. The stack of resolulions (hat finally came back lo the main convention its final day Tuesday included many that slated the obvious, some lhal were unrlcar, and others that j wei'c contradictory. ANAM'SK IIESULTS Headquarters will sift through the results, blend related results together and report to the parliamentary caucus, which won't be bound by them. The seven hours of policy discussions was clearly not the highlight of the convention. Delegates would gladly disengage to talk about the party's diances in the next election. One of the most common expressions was: "At least we ean see victory as a possibility now." It is doubtful whether Party Leader Robert Stanfield ever faeed a more enthusiastic audience than on Monday night. He made a fighting, election-type speech interrupted 28 times by applause. When he said that if everyone worked, "I shall be prime minister of Canada." he was given a standing v Premier William Davis of On- tario announced to Mr. Slanficld i that in Ihc next campaign "On-' c tario will he with you and we'll do just as well federally as wu have provinciallv."
