Mr. Colborne, issuing a scathing rebuttal to remarks made by Mr. Lougheed last week, accused the opposition leader of "deliberately lying to the public of this province." Mr. Lougheed was quoted at a pre-Conservative convention news conference last Friday as accusing the Social Credit government of spending $1 million "on a propaganda program telling everyone what the civil-service-controlled government is doing." Mr. Colborne said today the total advertising budget for the province's publicity bureau this fiscal year is $301,000, and the current advertising program the opposition leader is. talking about is costing $08,000. "This is a far crv from $1 million." He called Mr. Lougheed's comments on the civil service as an "unwarranted and cowardly attack" on a group of people, who by their positions as civil servants, cannot defend themselves. Mr. Lougheed was quoted as saying the civil service bureaucracy controls the Social Credit government preventing the public from' influencing the course of public policy. "Tha civil service in Alberta is the most efficient and loyal civil service to be found anywhere in this country," Mr. Colborne said. "They administer government policy conscientiously and faithfully and there is no evidence whatever to warrant the accusation that they are usurping the government's powers and responsibilities." The opposition leader said he would use the money spent on the advertising campaign to improve communication channels between the public and elected officials, particular* ly on public hearings to discuss government policy and to determine public opinion. "What Mr. Lottsheed ovw-looks, however, is that no other government in Canada goes to the lengths Alberta's government does to consult with individuals and organizations respecting government business," Mr. Colborne said.
