Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Liberals .she up Western Canada Monday, JO, 1971 TUB LCTHBRIDCf HERALD 5 No jubilation 011 the Prairies lly PACT, JACKSON IkTald Oltinva Hnroau OTTAWA Liberal election strategists expect to see the party's .strength in Canada remain much (he same after a federal election, al- though Uicy predict their stand- ings may increase slightly in British Columbia ;.nd they may lose one or two scats in Mani- toba. The Liberals are jubilant about British Columbia, where they feel their substantial gains made in the Trudcau sweep will be easy to repeal again. They are perlexed by their in- ability to any such lihe inroads in the prairies. A top Liberal parly executive at national headquarters in Ot- tawa finds the party's voter appeal on a fragile basis, vary- ing almost month to month. However, he believes that Prime Minister Trurteati's per- sonal appeal will outweigh any disenchantment with the Lib- eral government. The large, eral national campaign co-ordi- nating committee is already "in although in a relatively dormant state. It. is ready to roll at a moment's notice, but an election call is not ex- pected for at least six months. "Quite frankly, we think we will be able to run the best campaign in a decade this time. After all, it is the first time in 10 years when we have known well in advance just about when an election could be expected. With minor- ity governments, they be TYogressive Conservative or Liberal, you never know just when an election might have lo be lie says. The executive says he is sure the Liberals will win tire next election. The question is by how many seats. Here, the stale of the economy will be the deciding factor. "We know that whatever party was in power right now there would still bo economic difficulties. But we think we are doing the best possible jab of handling them. It's just thai sonic voters may feel frustrat- ed enough by economic woes to reject us." Attempted murder charge laid CALGARY (CTM A charge of attempted murder was laid against William Thomas Mor- gan, 37, when he appeared in court here after a shotgun attack on a service station mechanic the previous evening. The shooting was preceded by three calls to city police threat- ening "seven murders in the next half hour" and a call to CFCN Radio where a man talk- ed of "two big blowouts." After the shooting, police were called five more times and CFCN television once with the warning that others would be shot that evening. However, in British Colum- bia where in they cornered more than 41 per cent of the popular vole leaving the N e w Democratic Party just under 33 per cent and the Progressive Conservatives less than 20 per cent, the Liberals are sure the sun shines ever more brightly. They feel they can increase their current total of 15 scats by another two. This feeling is directly opposite to that held by the Progressive Conserva- tives who arc predicting a comeback with between seven and len seals in the West Coast province. In British Columbia, the fed- eral Liberate feel they may well topple NDP MP Mark Rose in his Fraser Valley West constituency. He had a major- ity of just 770 votes in 1968. Another seat they feel is up for grabs is Harold Winch's Van- couvcr East constituency. Winch, who captured just over 50 per cent of the vole in HIM corn-pared to per cent for the Liberal candidate-, is not seeking re-election. Alberta is a relatively barren place for the Liberals, both fed- erally and provincially. They reckon it will remain so. But there will be changes. The Liberals hold only four of Alberta's 19 federal seals. They see two seats threatened, that of Agriculture Minister Bud Olson in Medicine Hat and Pal Mahoney in Calgary South. Ir- onically, both these men are two of the most outstanding Western Canadian members in the House of Commons. Ma- lioncy, Parliamentary secretary j to Finance .Minister Kdgar Ben-1 son, has been linked closely with the government's taxation reform measures. They don'l go down well in the oil capi- tal. However, the Liberals believe they could pick up a seat in both Edmonton and Calgary. Rural Alberta otters little hope for more gains. In Saskatchewan, it's bleak. They figure they will be lucky fo hold Wheat Board Minister Otto Lang's Saskatoon Hum- IraldL scat. Lang hid a majority of only 559 votes in 1963 and a vigorous fight, by both the Pro- gressive Conservatives and the New Democrats is expected. When it comes to Manitoba, they eye only Robert Simpson's PC-held seat in Churchill as a possible gain. But they ex- pect lo see a couple of their other seats they won't say which in close danger ot bring lost. The Liberals increased their share of the popular vote in Manitoba from in 1965 to in 1968. As with the rest of the prairie provinces, its the farmers who worry the Liberals. And they can't under- stand why. Says the Liberal executive: "We've bent over backwards to try and give good policies for the farmer. We've worked damn hard at it. But every time we do something for them they turn around and kick us in the teeth. It's very frustrating, I'm telling you."
