Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wait for end to inflation 'Pass voters told Liberal Yates seeks to regain Rockey seat By ANDY OGLE Herald Staff Writer Rocky Mountain Liberal candidate Arthur Yates characterizes inflation as a storm that Canada will just have to ride out forces that created inflation will burn thenselves he says may not be this year or even next but we have to keep a clear head and ride out the storm and in the meantime protect those at the low end of the scale The 55-year-old Liberal who immigrated to Canada from England in offered this analysis to voters in the Crowsnest Pass last week and it resulted in at least one local squall Mamstreeting in the shopping area of Mr Yates ran into a woman who said she had voted Liberal all her but now was seriously changing her vote over the inflation issue 'I'm at the point where I feel Trudeau has evaded the she said 'I feel Trudeau is the best but right now I'm wondering if he's going to do anything I've got five children and it panics me when I come to town and see the necessities childrens' clothing increasing every week Mother unconvinced She looked unconvinced when Mr Yates said the Liberals were keeping a close watch on the situation and proposed tax cuts and other measures in their budget to ease the effects of inflation on those on fixed and low incomes But she agreed in the end to take a Liberal promising to put it up next to her husband's poster Curiously enough Mr Yates did not use the opportunity to attack the Conservatives' prices and incomes policy He said later he felt to do so would be to avoid the and in a way that typifies the Liberal candidate's somewhat gentlemanly approach to the campaign wanted to know what we're doing about he said The day was much like all the others in the past five weeks for Mr Yates since he took the Liberal nomination for the riding on the day after he graduated in political science from the U of A He shook hands for half-an-hour at the Phillips Cable Communications Plant which employees 230 people a few miles west of toured the Crowsnest Pass Senior Citizens Lodge and Nursing Home and the Crowsnest Pass General and did some mainstreeting all in a day In the process he showed there's still a good deal of Liberal support in the 'Pass When the rest of the riding went over to Conservative Clark in Blairmore and Coleman remained loyal to Liberal Allen Sulatycky Found supporters Thursday Mr Yates' handshaking kept turning up confirmed Liberal supporters who have no doubts about how they re voting But the Liberal campaign in the 'Pass seems to lack the organizational effort of the PCs this time around While Mr Clark spent two days in the area at the end of Mav and opened a campaign headquarters in the Liberals only recently put out their posters and don't have a campaign headquarters in the 'Pass Mr Yates arrived in the 'Pass early in the week but flew back to Canmore when he heard the flood situation there was worsening He says he finds the riding a difficult one to campaign in because of its but has been to most parts of the constituency at least twice 'We have to hurry all over the instead of being able to stay in one place longer and meet more he says The riding runs up the western edge of the province from the U S border to such northern towns as Grand Cache and Swan Hills Knocks oil companies Mr who at one time operated a bulk station in Fox Creek in the northern part of the has been highly critical oi the oil industry in his campaign In certain areas of the riding oil companies have been telling their employees they'll loose their jobs if the Liberals are he says 1 It s an outright attempt at blackmail These people aren't trying to get a PC government they're trying to blackmail Trudeau into promises in the heat of an election campaign Mr Yates says he has his information directly from oil company employees They were told by their companies that everything would close down and there would be no more drilling in Alberta That's errant nonsense they drill where the oil is The oil industry in the province is upset by provisions in the Turner budget to tax oil company royalties paid to the but says Mr not complaining because they re being persecuted in any the outcry is only because certain privileges which have never been enjoyed by others are being withdrawn The Liberal candidate is also attacking incumbent Clark for allegedly neglecting the affairs of his own riding But he he considers that a fair because Mr Clark termed Mr complacent Glider
