In the last three decades, they have rarely involved more than five cabinet minislers. Often I he number has been only three. This may be one reason antic- ipated changes in the Tnideau second shuffle since he took office in creating little if any interest, except for the princi- pals of course. Mr. Tnideau says he will ap- point a science minister and he is also expected to name a com- munications minister to replace Eric Kierans, who resigned April 29 in a policy clash with the prime irjnister. If he takes both ministers from the back benches, no fur- ther shuffling would be neces- sary. His first revision in Sep- tember last year involved five Wycliffe Fark opened with light horse show CRANBROOK (Special) Regional District of East Koote- nay board chairman Stanley Wilson of Kimberley has for- mally opened the first phase development of the first re- gional park in the interior. Initial developed unit of Wy- cliffe Regional Park, GO acres of its approximately 430 acres midway between Cranbrook and Kimberley, is on a dollar-a- year-lease to Wycliffe Exhibi- tion Association, comprising seven organizations within sim- ilar requirements and hundreds of members. Warren Keer for South Kim- berley is association president, and C. J. Worthy is secretary. The association will schedule its use by member organiza- tions: Kootenay Light Horse Association, Kimberley's Rocky Mountain and Cran- brook's Maverick riding clubs, Pine Ridge Roping Club, Cran- brook Farmers' Instituc. Wy- cliffe Community Club and 4-H clubs in the region. The park is immediately south of the Wycliffe bridge on High- way 95A, straddling the now disused hill highway curve. It stretches westward to include QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Denial Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg. 32S.7684M the former B.C. Forest Service tree nursery and water service, buildings and other amenities. It also includes many acres of 50-year-old second forest growth laced with old logging roads, suitable for bicycles and snowmobiles. It includes Booth Creek for fishing, and picnic areas. Wycliffe Exhibition Associa- tion's 60 to 70 acres is in the eastern part of the park. Both this and the part under devel- opment have excellent highway access. It offers show-ring-rodeo grounds for the burgeoning equestrian sports, a potential race track, parking space and spectator space. Animal shelters have been provided by the Wycliffe Exhi- bition Association. RDEK selected the regional park site two years ago when it became available from the B.C. Forest Service which already had access and water supply and system from Booth Creek. Budget last year was for basic preparation. The 1971 budg-st allows for fur- ther development. The provin- cial government pays one-third. The site is so located that it serves within its 15-mile radius 60 per cent of the RDEK popu- lation. The Kootenay Light Horse Show made a .rousing and ap- propriate first event to mark the opening. revenue, manpower, post office and privy council. There could be a more exten- sive shake-up this time, how- ever, because the government already is girdinp for the next election, expected in the sum- mer or fall of 1972. Mr. Trudeau has said he has cancelled plans for foreign tours to stay at home and expound government policy to the public for the next year. Thus he may want to carry out now all the cabinet changes he has in mind so his ministry will be set for the next election. The Liberal party is beginning to poll all their MPs, including cabinet ministers, to find out how many do not plan to run in the next election. In 1968, more than 30 Liberals chose not to seek re-election. In recent years, the most ex- tensive cabinet shuffles were carried out by prime ndnisters John Diefenbaker and Lester Pearson. Excluding formation of their ministries upon election and changes brought on by resigna- tions, Mr. Diefenbaker had two nine-member shuffles and Mr. Pearson one involving the same number. Mr. Diefenbaker also had a minor shuffle involving three ministers. Liberal prime minister Louis St. Laurent carried out three overhauls between 1949 and 1954 but they involved a total of only 11 ministers. Between 1939 and 1948, Lib eral prime minister Mackenzie King reformed his cabinet nine times. But no more than five minis- ters were ever involved at any one time. Mr. King alsfo squeezed maxi- mum publicity out of his cabinet changes, usually spreading the announcements over days or weeks. For instance, he made c three-minister change in 11 ay, 1940, and announced the ap- pointments, ons at a time on May 9, 10 and 23. In July that year he carried out a five-minis- ter shuffle and made the an- nouncements July 5, 8 and 12. On only three of the nine shuf- fles in nine years were all the announcements made on a sin- gle day.
