Party sources say that if convention organizers could get a commitment from On- tario Premier William Davis that no provincial election will be held until next spring, plans would go ahead for a November convention, either here or in Winnipeg. But after a meeting with the premier earlier this week, Ontario MPs came away without any such indications. "I don't think the premier .has any idea himself said one. Since Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield announced last summer that he would be stepping down as leader, par- ty officials have been aiming at a fall convention. But a possible Ontario election has always been in their minds. The worst thing that could happen, in their view, would be to head into a leadership convention in the wake of a poor showing by Ontario Tories. And apart from the results of such an election, an Ontario campaign could tie up some potential candidates from that province. Party President Michael Meighen of Montreal is said to have recommended to Mr. Stanfield, on behalf of the executive, that the convention be delayed until February. A spokesman in Mr. Stanfield's office said the recommen- dations are being considered. Prior to Friday's announce- ment of an Alberta election March 26, Ontario politics seemed to be highest in mind. However, there was concern about an Alberta which could see Premier Peter Lougheed in a stiff fight with Ottawa over the energy question. Some party members still have hopes that Mr. Lougheed will seek the national lead- not immediately after he has fought a cam- paign largely on provincial rights. One party official said that Ottawa is being favored as the convention site, partly because Parliament likely will be sitting and partly because of expenses. Studies have shown that although Win- nipeg is better located geographically, the overall cost of an Ottawa meeting would be lower because of the higher proportion of eastern delegates. However, officials say no firm decision has been made. Ottawa grant aids native house group OTTAWA (CP) The federal government will provide a grant of to Cannative Housing Corp. of Edmonton to help it through a financial crisis, a spokesman for Urban Affairs Minister Barney Danson said Saturday. The decision to make the grant came after a meeting last week between the minister and Cannative of- ficials, he said. It was also decided to set up a three-man committee to study the financial situation at the organization including its rent structure. The com- mittee will include represen- tatives of the Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. Cannative, and tenants of the organization, the spokesman said. Cannative owns 158 units of rental accommodation in Western cities including Ed- monton and Calgary. It rents the units to native families. The grant will likely be used to pay part of the owing the MHC on mortgage payments, the spokesman said. The grant was made after Cannative officials agreed to some administrative changes, including converting the organization to a non-profit corporation. The government had been in the position to name a receiver for the company because of its mortgage arrears, the spokesman said. The grant will carry the or- ganization to March 15. The committee is expected to make its report by that time and the department will then decide whether to renew the organization's financing for the fiscal year beginning April 1, he added. Aussie seat-belt rules applauded TORONTO (CP) The president of the Ford Motor Co. of Canada Ltd. challenged the press Saturday to en- courage public acceptance of mandatory use of seat-belts, a 55-mile-an-hour speed limit and "honest-to-goodness crackdowns on drinking drivers." "These are some of the im- portant measures that will br- ing safer roads to Roy Bennett told the Ontario Weekly Newspapers Associa- tion convention. Mr. Bennett said the press has the power "to prepare the population to accept con- troversial legislation gracefully, if not eagerly, and to establish a climate in which government can act without hesitation or concern over citizen support." He said Australia's adoption of such laws has reduced that country's highway death rate by one-quarter. A 35-per-cent reduction in serious traffic in- juries also has been reported, he said. "The success of the Austral- ian seat-belt experience stemmed largely from the tre- mendous co-operation the press gave the government." Spanish court clips left-wing sentences MADRID (Reuter) The Spanish Supreme Court today drastically cut stiff sentences imposed on 10 left-wing oppo- nents of the Franco govern- ment, nine of whom have been on a hunger strike. The men had been given sentences ranging from 12' to 20 years by the public order court here on Dec. 20, 1973-the day Premier Luis Carrero Blanco was assassinated by a bomb blast. The sentences were widely criticized as being too harsh, and the Supreme Court upheld a defence plea that the men, convicted ot illegal association, were not leaders of an underground trade union organization. The sentences were reduced to terms ranging from two years and four months to six move expected to ease the tense Spanish labor situation. The appeal hearings last Tuesday led to widespread demonstrations in support of the jailed men. Police broke up a march by 200 students outside the court.
