Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta WINDY' rORECAST HIGH SATURDAY 40 ABOVE The Uthtnidae Herald LKTJI BRIDGE, ALBERTA, FRIDAY, FRBRUABY 11, 1972 PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS TWO PAGES Liberal govt. more popular than Trudeau By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottima Bureau OTTAWA A constituency-vide survey conducted by AltaTta MP Allen Sulalycky indicates thai Prime Minister Trucleau's government is more popular lhan Mr. Trudeau himself. Mr. Sulatycky, Liberal member for Rocky Moun- tain, sent out 17.000 to people in his riding and received back. Professional pollsters suggest a return rale of around tliat percentage, 8.3 is good. When a.skcd whether they thought Mr Trudeau had performed his duties as prime minister adequately, only 43 per cent answered yes. Some 49 per cent thought he hadn't, while eight per cent had no opinion. However, 47 per cent said they were satisfied with the Liberal government's performance, (relieving it to have acted mainly for the benefit of the majority of Canadians. Some 4G per cent didn't like the govern- ment. Another seven per cent had no opinion. Mr. Sulalycky, one of four Allrerta Liberal MPs in the House of Commons and parliamentary secre- tary to Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien, suggests that these results show (hat Mr. Trudeau and his gov- ernment arc not exceptionally hnv in popularity in the fomc political obscn ers have suggested. Surprising answers A number of questions on economic mailers drew tome surprising answers from constituents in a prov- ince generally thought, to be in favor of free and easy policies. For instance, 79 per cent thought foreign invest- ment should be controlled and limited. Only 17 cent were against controls. Four per cent had no opinion. Wlien it came to spoiling natural gas to the Uni- ted S'Lates, only 33 per cent were against increasing cx- orts. Nine per cent had no opinion. These figures question the general idea that Al- berlans are hotly against clamps on natural gas ex- port.s. Again, basic questioned when coutiil- L'enl.s a.skcd if they thought (he government should pass legislation to ensure Canadian control of basic and essential industries. A full 83 per cent answered yes. Only 13 per cent were against controls. Four per cent had no opinion. Questioned on restoration of the death penalty for all forms oE murder, 6S per cent of Mr. Sulatyckj's replies were in favor of bringing back capital punish- ment Some 23 per cent were against restoration.
