BRUSH TWILL PANTS Aim to Tory MPs told not to relax battle IK I'.U I, JACKSON" lli-nlld IJilrcau OTTAWA On Oct. 30th Ir.jt year Scan Schumacher, Ml' un- the AltHTUi constituency m Pal- liser, romped home to victory with [he biggest majority of any candidate in Canada and found in r. posuion many MPs envy. When the votes uere counted on election night Mr. Schuma- cher found himself uiih :i ma- jority in excess cf 20.000 vote? and his opponent. Liberal Mary Guicr-or..' found that with less thnn 9.000 to Mr. Schumacher's :9.i.xw she'd achieved what m.ir.y re- farced as only a ing. Even though all 19 Ptvercs- sivi Conservative in Alberta svere elected 5nme majorities and the Alberta MPs who v.-ere Lii-ersU were easily bea'.er. Mr. Schumacher believes '.hat the MP? from his prtv. ir.ce ar.d the other SS in the House PL C.'-'.r-ois rnusn't relsx for in their battle to Lrsea: Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudetiu's mir.ority gjv-, emmeni. The Al'rorisn suggests :r.r; in matters Mr. his 1 government members act like "thugs" and he contends that only forceful representation by everyone who opposes Mr. Trudeau's regime will prevent ilie "open arrogance" that marked the first four years of his nolministradon from openly re-appearing. Mr. Schumacher was one of the few MPs to vote against the Official Lcmguaees re- cent pol! in his cortslituency showed some 90 per cent of those replying opposed spending more of the taxpayers' money on !H? be- lieves that events to date have justiiied his position. He says the Liberal govern- ment admitted that ''injustices .ird inequities" had occurred to federal government employees when a few weeks ago it re- vealed a new nine-point plan stressing a softening cf govern- ment policy in this area. the Alberta MP questions whether this would have hap- per.LV) if voters hadn't stripped Mr. Tn'drm of his majority. "I r.i ti'.i to? hnvintt bt'.ir.pjaiism in the federal pub- lic service but what the Liberal government has been tryuie to co is :o an artificial system." he n-.are Mr. Schum- c'r.er. v.-'-o ?ays he have r.o hesiT-tion in backing a French-Canadian as Qtie- bee MP Claude Wagner as leader of the Conservatives if Mr. SLanfield ever decided to quit, warns that Western Cana- dians are still seriously tlu-cat- ened by Ottawa's bilingualism i policies. "Quite frankly, Western Ca- nadians and residents of other provinces such as Nova Scotia and Newfoundland soon won't i have real access to the federal public service. The upper levels I of the federal bureaucracy are already filled -with people drawn mainly from Ontario and Quebec. As biiingualism pre- vents Westerners from entering the upper levels, policies of im- pprtance to the West will be de- cided and administered increas- ingly by persons with no real knowledge or experience o: the region." he wants. Mr. Schumacher puts his suc- cess at the ballot box down to two things a fefinire anti- Trudeau feelins in the West that should net necessarily be construed F.S nn feeling, ard the fact t'ny he places much emphasis on repre- senting the needs and feelings cf his constituents. "I've always taken frequent polls. The polU shown a large majority of my con- stiutDris critics! pf and in favor cf retention of the dealh penalty. So I make these views known in Ottawa at all limes. During the federal elec- tion campaign almost at every other door I went lo someone would insist that 1 kept the polls coining. I intend to." i Mr. Schumacher, whose desk is piled high with letters from constituents asking help Just about every problem under the sun. feels that more MPs should pay closer attention to their constituents.
