Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, June LETHBRIDGE MPs may face hard battles again Pilot carries two letters OTTAWA (CP) For some cabinet ministers and more than one-third of all MPs, the July 8 federal election promises a particularly hard battle, if narrow margins of victory in the last vote are any indication. A survey of 1972 election re- sults shows that 91 seats were won with pluralities of 10 per cent or less. Of these, 27 were won by margins of two per cent or less. The issues and candidates competing for public attention may have changed in this campaign. But these 91 seats, based on 1972 returns, are vulnerable and might decide which party will torm the government. The survey of 1972 results, done by journalism professor Joseph Scanlon of Carleton University in Ottawa, shows how tenuous party holds are on many ridings.

Afla. results pour in election night, turnovers in early returns from these ridings might give a firm indication of political trends. The marginal ridings prob- ably will see more intense campaigning than other con- stituencies. They were chosen by Mr. Scanlon solely on the basis of 1972 election results. He considers a marginal seat one in which the winner's margin of victory was 10 per cent or less. The survey does not take into account other factors that may make other ridings close, such as retirement of incumbents and the emergence of strong new candidates. Forty-four of the marginal seats are in Ontario, which has 88 federal ridings. Mr. Scanlon's calculations show that 16 of the 25 Metropolitan Toronto seats fall into the marginal category. Of Quebec's 74 ridings 17 are marginal, 11 of 23 in British Columbia are close and so are nine of 13 Saskatchewan seats. Most of the Ontario marginals ridings are basically Liberal and Progressive Conservative fights, but the NDP enters the scene in Saskatchewan and British Columbia. Social Credit and the Liberals will be the main combattants in the Quebec marginal ridings. The Conservatives hold 36 of the marginal seats, the Liberals 32, the NDP 16 and Social Credit seven. In the 1972 election, 40 Liberals, 32 Conservatives, 13 New Democrats and five Social Credit candidates finished in second place. With a 10-per-cent victory margin, an MP can afford to lose only up to five per cent of his plurality and still hold the seat. With a two-per-cent margin, he can lose less than one per cent. The calculations reveal eight cabinet ministers are in marginal ridings. They are Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan (Essex-Windsor) Secretary- of-State Hugh Faulkner External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp (Toronto Energy Minister Donald Macdonald (Toronto Trade Minister Alastair Gillespie (Toronto Revenue Min- ister Robert Stanbury (York- Veterans Affairs Minister Daniel Macdonald (Cardigan) and Government House Leader Allan MacEachen (Cape Breton All party leaders appear safe, the survey indicates, but several prominent members of opposition parties, including Conservatives Claude Wagner, James Gillies. Paul Hellyer and Allan Lawrence: New Demo- crats Ed Broadbent and John Harney, both former contenders for the party- leadership: and Social Crediter Gilles Caouette, son of leader Real Caouette, are in marginal ridings. In several ridings, three parties will be hotly contesting marginal seats. Among them are Scarborough East, held by Mr. Harney: Sault Ste. Marie, held by New Democrat Cyril Symes: London East, held by Liberal Charles Turner; Coast- Chilcotin, held by Harrv Olaussen of the NDP, and Churchill, now a Conservative seat held by Keith Taylor, who is leaving politics. Mr. Scanlon says that in some of these three-party fights a tough fight between the two contenders might allow the candidate of the third party to squeak in. Of the 44 marginal ridings in Ontario, 33 are shaping up as Conservative-Liberal fights, eight as Liberal-NDP battles and three should be between Conservatives and the NDP. In Quebec. 12 of the 17 mar- ginal seals may feature races between Liberals and Social Credit. Four others probably win involve Liberal and Con- servative fights, while in Mon- treal St Henri, won by a Lib- era! in 1972. an independent candidate came second. The 11 marginal ridings in B.C. indicate six Liberal-Con- servative fights, three NDP and Conservative races and two Liberal NDP races. All nine marginal ridings in Saskatchewan are expected to be battles between mainly the NDP and the Conservatives. There are three marginal ridings in Nova Scotia, three in Manitoba, and one each m Newfoundland. New Brunswick. Prince Edward Island and the Northwest Territories Alberta was solidly Conservative in the last election.

MITCHELL SHARP Amusement tax said inequitable WINNIPEG (CP) Liberal leader Izzy Asper has urged Manitoba Municipalities not to institute amusement taxes of their own when the provincial government vacates this field next Jan. 1. Speaking in the legislature, Mr. Asper described the 10 per cent tax on tickets for movies, sporting events and other forms of entertainment as an inequitable one. He said the tax was first instituted years ago and was intended to apply only on tickets for more expensive forms of entertainment patronized by the rich. DON MACDONALD CALGARY (CP) A Cana- dian helicopter pilot released by Ethiopian guerrillas! carried with him two letters from the guerrillas and the other from a kidnapped American nurse, the U.S. state department said Friday. In a telephone interview from Washington, a spokesman for the Bureau of African Affairs said the letters were from the Eritrean Liberation Front and Deborah Dortzbach, 24, of Freehold N.J. Grant Wyatt, 30, of Calgary, was released by the guerrillas Tuesday at Ghinda, a village near Asmara, capital of the northern Ethiopian province of Eritrea. Mr. Wyatt is a pilot of CanWest Aviation Ltd. of Calgary. The spokesman said the guerrillas' letter was addressed "to whom it may concein" and asked for clothing and a toothbrush for Mrs. Dortzbach, who is five months pregnant. This letter was passed to missionaries at an American missionary hospital at Ghinda and the requested items had been sent to her by a messenger.
