LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA Ask dlioul Phologrcry The lens lhal changes with thl lighl. Hurlburt gets PC nomination By JOE MA Staff Writer Ken Hurlhurt, tho 43-year-old former mayor of Fort Macleod won Lhe nomination for the Lethbriclge riding for Ihc next federal election at a packed Progressive Conservative par- ty c3nvcnl.nion Monday luglit at Ihe Civic Sports Centre. The only surprise was t h e margin of his victory voles against 301 for Ihe only otter contender, 40-year-old Lethbridge investment dealer John Gcgo. Even before the convention, Ihe Gogo camp quietly conceded that Mr. Hurl- burt had Uie edge. "I make no promises of great or earth-shattering Mr. Hurlburt fold Lhe more than delegates and vis- itors. "It would be foolish for me lo do so. But wilh your sup- port, your vote tonight, comes a sincere promise. I'll fight hard. I'll work hard to repre- sent each and every one of you." The convention drew the lar- gest crowd iii Lhe sports cen- tre's history. The contention was jammed with Mr. Hurlburt's supporters from Fort Macleod. Deanc Gundlock, the MP whose an- nounced plan Lo retire led to Ihe nomination contest, also threw his support behind Mr. Hurlburt. The Hurlburt camp had com- plete control of the going of the convention. Yellow buttons of smiling faces with "Vote for Hurlburt" were pinned on most delegates and pretty girls were employed by the Hurlburt camp. The sheer number o f yellow badges s e e n en al- most four of every five dele- Reminiscing Baking Bread gates made a hallo-Ling a nci'c technicality lo affirm Mr. lurlburt's overwhelming popu- arily with the PCs. The IIurllnirL camp spent much more campaign funds ,han Lhc Gogo group. G. W. (Jed) Baldwin, the PC .-louse leader, came from 01- laua to address the convention. Mr. Baldwin attacked the cabinet of Prime Minister ierrc Trudcau for increased military expenditure, wasting .a.xpayers' money and mocking Ihc judicial process. Another speaker was Fred Gladstone, son of the late Se- nator James Gladstone of Cardslon, the first Indian sena- tor, who died last year. Mr. Gogo accepted his defeat graciously. He congratulated Mr. Hurlburt and told the dele- gates: "We came as two camps. Let us leave as one c-amp." Party officials said both the turnout for the convention and the margin of Mr. Hurlburt's victory made records in the political history ot southern Al- berta. Convention notes Granum's town council meet- ing was held Monday afternoon instead of evening, as regu- larly scheduled, so the council- lors couM travel to Lcth- bndge's Civic Sports Centre to help cinch the Conservative nomination for their neighbor Ken Hurlburt. Fort Maclcod was also al- most empty Monday night, sev- eral residents said at the con- vention. Start of the meeting was de- layed nearly 90 minutes be- cause of the throng of people lined up lo get their voting cre- dentials and ballots. meeting was "back- wards" in the hall, with the podium at the east end and the stage, jammed with voters, at tlie roar. At least people were in the hiii'Hing, it is cal- culated, probably Lhe largest crowd it has ever held. A few dozen visilors from other political parties were squeezed into one corner of the bleachers, lo make room for voters. In the 1568 election Deane Gundlock got voles out of the cast in the Lcth- bridge constituency. G. W.

Alberta needs more parks travel industry men say By RUDY IIAUGESEDER Staff Writer MEDICINE HAT Alberta must set aside more areas for provincial parks and forest preserves, delegates attending the Alberta Travel Industry Association annual convention urged. Because this province's fnur- ist industry is growing rapidly and Ihe future recreational de- mands "have been reliably prcdicled lo he far in excess of what we currently posses" the government must take immc- diale aclion, a resolution pass- ed by the convention stales. The Peace River tourist zone resolution adopted by the dele- gales continued: Established parks and areas must be signi- ficantly improved to provide good and attractive visitor fa- cilities and ecological protec- tions. The tourist industry "has the definite potential fo becoming Alberta's greatesL revenue pro- ducer, as as source of per aeroplane and letting go of if down the aisles. The longest ,-nd warmest applause went lo J-'red slonc, son of the Inle James It resolved lhal a new full meaningful job opportunities, a TIAA executive committee re- solution passed by delegates Gladstone of Cardston, the first Inriian senator in Canada. The only time applause sub- sided al the convention was when a woman official of the pnrly announced lint-passing to collect money lo finance Ihe nexL federal election. About was collected less than a quarter per delegate. Ken Ilurlhurl, in an nncon- vcnlional convention speech, introduced his wife as "busi- ness partner personal sec- retary frankly, my best supporter." John Gogo's nomination, com- ing first as a result of tossing a coin, moved by Cleve Hill of Lcllihr'dge, seconded by Dennis Eurt of Cardston, and by Dick Gray, of sored program to rediscover and protect historic areas from destruction while also request- Ing that the private sector be involved in the program. A Peace Kiver tourist zone resolution also urged an in- crease in Alherla History con- Lents in school textbooks. British greatest Columbia, competitor Alberta's for the tourist, has set aside certain designated areas with special Liccnsinff service facilities to accommodate tourists "Gas- town" in Vancouver an Ed- monton resolution passed at the convention staled.

Toronto Some cabinet ministers have voiced complele support of Ihe Imperial Oil financed project. A special census will be con- ducted before Ihe end of April lo determine an accurate popu- lation figure for the city. City council Monday ap- piovcd a request by the cily manager to hire ZD qualified sliK.ciils as enumerators at a cost of iKlwecn and Tn a letter to council, City Manager Tom Nutting said the increase shown by the January census, of 952 people over last year is "impossible to accept." For example, city meter readers did a check of one our-hlock area in the cily and 'ound there had been 39 omis- ;ions, Nulling said. He lislcd four reasons why the census appears inaccurate: 125 enumerators wilh little training were used in the cen- sus; some homeowners failed lo register all occupants of the house because some lived in un- authorized suites; some enumerators did not register any students; Lhe character of some areas of the city made enu- meration difficult for female census-lakers. Mr. Nutting said he estimates the population increase over the last year should he lo An accurate growth rate anc population figure is necessar; to plan future developments, he said.
