Tory convention Lougheed promises Alberta to Stanfield By GREG McINTYRE Writer EDMONTON Alberta Pre- mier Peter Lougheed has thrown his provincial party's support in the next federal election behind national Tory leader Robert Stanfield with a pledge to deliver all 19 federal seats for the Conservatives. Currently the Oonsevatives 15 seats and the Liberals told the other four federal seats n this province. "So there is absolutely no said t h e iremier, "the minute the bal- oon goes up and the federal election starts, I and my col- eagues have a target and hit's all 19 federal Conserva- tive seats." Robert Stanfield, in a speech i cheering Conservative .sup- wrters at the provincial party's annual convention here, said the Liberal Trudeau gov- Toaieot has alienated the west by Ignoring "the individual" and taking a "pessimistic view about the future of western agriculture." "1 don't travel anywhere In Western Canada without hear- ng volumes spoken by mem- iers of the agricultural com- munity about their dissatisfac- tion with a federal government hat's trying to turn their liveli- hood and their way of life into some kind of a public Mr. Stanfield said. Without a healthy western agriculture, every Canadian will be that much poorer, he said. H elected Mr." StanfieM prom- ised to take provincial govern- ments info consultation on pol- icy matters. "In our approach the Alber- ta government would not be left out of the picture on en- ergy policy he said. Turning to Premier Loug- heed sitting in the front row of the auditorium, the national party leader said: "You are m good hands in Alberta. You have a dedicated provincial government under Peter, a. government that will work hard at fulfilling a desirable destiny for this province." Four provincial governments in Canada have chosen Con- servative rule, said Mr. Stan- field, "and more and more Ca- nadians are thinking seriously about the need to have these attitudes prevailing in their federal government." Socred stronghold EDMONTON Alberta Pro- gressive Conservative party president Roy Watson says it will take "a lot of effort" to un- seat the Social Credit members of the legislature who hold the majority of seats from south- ern Alberta. Mr. Watson, speaking la an icterview at the provincial Tory's annual convention here this weekend, said that even at the next provincial election, likely in four years, the Con- servatives may not win a ma- jority of seats in southern Al- berta constituencies. Despite the victory of the Lougheed government in Au- gust after 36 years of Social Credit rule, not a single rep- resentative won south of Cal- gary. Mr. Watson said the conven- tion, attended by about Tory supporters has two aims: to celebrate the victory of tba Lougheed win and to plot Con- servative strategy for pre- dicted 1972 federal general election.
