Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 19, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta it. itn IM UIMUDM muuo at Tory battle plans undergo changes By JOHN HAY OTTAWA (CP) Conserva- tive battle plan for the coming federal etectJoo hive undergone dramatic changes hi the last six with Opposition Leader Robert KmfleM taking front- line command. While pbM will not be final iDtil Prime Minister Trudeau Mts the election date, organiz- ers interviewed Tuesday said Mr. StanfWd will likely be the key to the campaign both in media and local Lost spring, top Conservative organizers were planning to de- emphasiie the face and voice of Ihe leader, playing instead on the mistakes of bV Liberal gov- ernment. At that point, they were itlU smarting from the charismatic clout Mr. Trudeau wielded in 1968, end frankly saw little use in another man-to-man contest between the two leaders. The turnaround in strategy, Air strike brings joy to small charter people OTTAWA (CP) The air traffic controllers' strike may be a pain in the neck for the commercial airlines but it's bringing joy to the hearts of the small charter operators. One charter flying business io Ottawa, Cross Canada Flights Ltd., reports a 100-per-cent In- crease in charter operations in the last two days. "Everybody wants to fly down to the U.S. to pick up connec- tions with U.S. Cross Canada reoresentative Barry Peterson ail Tuesday. The charter firms are operat- ing under visual flight rules The transport depart- ment has limited VFR flying to small piston-driven and turbo- prop airplanes. The scheduled airlines and big charter companies have been forced to ground their aircraft as they must fly by instrument flight rules. This requires air traffic controllers. The charter operators would be happier if the weather was better. "We are limited in the kind of weather we can fly in under vis- ual flight said Richard DebKcquy, chief pilot of Bradley Air Service in Ottawa. "We have had a lot of re- said John Bogie, man- ager of LaurentJan Air Services Ltd. of Ottawa. "But most of the tinM the weather is bad But both Bradley and Lauren- Han report a lO-to-15 per cent increase in business since the strike began Monday morning. La-jrentian has operated extra flights to Montreal while Brad- ley has been sending planes to Syracuse, N.Y., and Toronto. While telephones are ringing steadily, the charter companies are finding that many imjuirers are discouraged by charter prices. BARGAIN NOT REALIZED "They don't realize what a bargain they get on. scheduled Mr. Deblicquy said. While the controllers' strike Is a bbw to the scheduled airlines, the Air Transport Association of Canada isn't panicking "yet. Angus Morrison, president ol ATAC which represents Cana- dian air carriers, said: "If the strike is only a few days long, :t won't be dlsrc- trous." The economic outlooks is, bright this year for the sched-' uled airlines such as Air Can- ada and CP Air, he said. WELCOMES IMMIGRANTS MONTREAL (CP) The Montreal Catholic school board provided orientation classes for 520 students of 45 different na- tionalities ranging in age from six to 18 between July, 1970, and August, 1971. Of these, 189 went on to regular French-language classes, 89 to English schools and 160 remained in the Immi- grants' "welcoming" program. The others moved away or sought employment. My orgaolzen now, was the Conservatives' national conven- tion in December. PARTY BEHIND HIM Billed as a policy session, the convention wound up aa a pep rally, will all the cheers for Mr. Stanfieid personally. "For UK first time Stanfieid himself felt he had the party be- hind said one headquar- ters staffer. 'It was the last moment for Dlefenbaker. That's when be died." For Mr. StanfleU's future role, "that's changed I tot of things." Party headquarters, under na- tional director liara O'Brian, have been building the cam- paign structure since last spring. With the addition to the or- ganization last month of Finlay MacDonald, Nova Scotia broad- caster, that machinery is about to be put in motion. Organizers say Mr. Mac- Donald, former president of the Nova Scotia Conservatives, will ROBERT STANFIEID Takes command be the chief strategist for the conteet itself. ALL SET TO GO With a complex set o[ commu- nications and travel arrange- ments already prepared, the Conservative campaign will be highly centralized, with head- quarters taking the important decisions about issues and Mr. Stanfield't own campaign. The Conservatives now hold 71 of the 264 Commons seats, behind the Liberals who com- mand a ISO-seat majority. Another crucial change in the strategy hinges on renewed hopes for gains in Quebec where the party now holds only three of the province's 74 seats against 57 for the Liberals Quebec seats and 13 for Socia Credit. There is also an Inde- Conservative who defected last year. Last spring, the Conservatives were aiming merely at takini away some of the Social Credi seats In rural Quebec. They now hope to breach the Liberal bastion in Montreal. AIM FOR 25 QUE. SEATS Mr. Stanfield's annbuncemen last Saturday that a 26-man or ganizing committee has been formed in the province was con- sidered the kick-off for that con test. Organizers say winning up to 25 in Quebec is a realistic goal to aim at. Mr. Stanfieid says he has no decided wneftwr to appoint Quebec lieutenant before the next traditional post hi the party that has not been filled since Marcel Faribault chosen by Mr. Stanfieid to run In 1968, was defeated at the polls. Conservatives shy away from talk of campaign funds. One chief planner described a popular estimate of campaign costs of to million as much too high. Mr. O'Brian and Mr. Stanfieid have both hinted that campaign money is starting to flow to- ward the Conservatives, though neither will talk specif- ics. The federal party can count on the organizational and finan- cial help of the provincial Don servatives in power .in Ontario, Alberta, New Brunswick anc Newfoundland.
