Liberal win deflates Tories Stanfield faces difficult months OTTAWA Many Progressive Conservatives are concerned about maintaining unity and enthusiasm over the next few years following the party's losses in the July 8 general election. forget that there are at least 25 people in our party who were convinced they would now be cabinet said one senior years seems a long time particularly after we lost all those seats Several party members say it will be difficult to main- tain the enthusiasm of the last when most Conservatives felt the government benches were only one election an election that could come at any mo- ment with the fall of the minority Liberal government. It will be different in the new which opens Sept 30. Thanks to a Liberal the Conservatives cannot expect an election in the ordinary course for four years. They cannot talk of the of the last election and most expect a new leader before the next one At least two successful Horner and Roch Lasalle suggested that Party Leader Robert Stanfield resign. Most MPs seem to feel he will do when it's in the best interests of the party. ''What I am afraid said that too many of our guys will start nipping at his heels before then. can't afford the luxury of having factions develop at this stage After three elections as Opposition leader. Mr. Stan- lield is considered almost certain to bring on a leadership convention before the next vote. Since no natural successor is being talked some members suggest it would be better to wait three years until one emerges and go into a campaign with a relative- ly fresh face. There still is a good deal of talk here about the possibili- ty of Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed eventually becom- ing interested in the federal scene. There are fears that if Mr. Stanfield decides to step down within the next party won't get the type of leader it seeks. But if Mr. Stanfield were to seek to retain the leadership through another there would be rumblings of discontent. Even in the last with Conservatives confi- dent of there was talk among some party members of forming a new political group. Another problem facing Mr. Stanfield in the new Parlia- ment will involve the rearranging of seats. In the last Commons there were complaints that the best young members were relegated to back benches while the of them former Conservative cabinet the front seats. It was assumed that most of the front-benchers would get portfolios in any new Conservative cabinet. Now Mr. Stanfield will be under pressure to rotate some seats. If an election is four years even the vigorous George Hees will be 68 then. Several other former ministers will be close behind. Party sources say it will be hard for Mr. Stanfield to resist pressures to change the front-bench line-up. And this may lead to additional resentments. The 60-year-old party leader faces a difficult few most members agree. B.C.

He discounted the provincial Conservative vote. In the federal the NDP vote in B.C. fell to 12 per cent from 23 and the party won just two down from 11 in the 1972 federal vote. In the 1972 provincial elec- the NDP won with 39 per cent of the Social Credit had 33 per the Liberals 16 and the Conservatives 12. Mr. Brown said an anti NDP backlash against provin- cial policies did develop in the federal but he said it wans't as great as political commentators said after the election. Traditional NDP voters were more concerned with defeating the Conservative wage and price freeze proposals by allying with the Liberals than with reprimanding the provincial Mr. Brown said.
