Mr. Clark 'PC Rocky Mountain'- suggei's that unless Western Canadians are very careful the indusirial strategy beag developed by the federal Lib- eral minority government may simply perpetrate the traditional role of Ontario and Quebec being tie in- dustrial centre of Canada and the West being the sup- plier of raw materials. "Unless there are wholesale changes being made in the government's Ihiiiking on matters such as a new industrial strategy and transportation policy we are going to find our future determined to our disadvant- age for the next 25 years." he says. Although Mr. Clark has only been a MP since Oct. roth when he defeated Liberal Parliamentary sec- retary Allen Sulatycky by an easy majority, the Al- berta journalist and po'jtical science graduate has had wif-? experience in politics. LOUGHEED Sl'PPORTEK He was an early supporter of .Alberta Premier Pe- ter Lougheed. standing as a candidate in Calgary in the 1967 provincial election. From late until 19TO he was executive- assistant to federal Conservative lead- er Robert Sianfield Mr. Clark is naturally suspicions of many policies sr.c. programs of the Eastern Canadian-dominated gov- emraent of Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudcau, and he cautions against expecting loo much from Ihe proposed federal-provincial conference on Western economic opportunities. "1 think the conference idea is im- portant. It's a s'art. But there'll have to be a lot of pressure to ge; werthwhile results from Ottawa." Continues Mr. Clark: "I think il any good ideas come up at the conference which Mr. Trudeau thinks will help him in the West he'll adopt he will gauge ar.y against the real interests of the Liberal rany. It's jusi possible that Western interests ar.d Mr. Ttudeau's oun interests may coin- cide in a areas."

In return, the federal government would give the provinces a greater p'oportioo of the tax money it collects. MORE FOR PROVINCES The great growth in federal revenues indicates tha: thj fed- eral government can afford to give a greater share of ir.eome tax revenues to the provinces, he said. Mr. Getty ai'o said that Al- berta is not pushing for federal tax cuts or food price controls, as Manitoba Premier Ed Schre- yer advocated today at the con- ference. Better fiscal management, not controls on prices or wages, is the wav to fight inflation, he said.
