Little difference between major parties Ottawa scene of 'power hungry' struggle By VICTOR MACKIK Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The Liberal mi- nority government by con- stantly pounding home the point has attached the label "power hungry." to the official opposi- tion led by Progressive Con- servative Leader Robert Stanfield. the Grits have made it stick. The irony of the situ- ation is that the Liberls undar Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau are just as "power hungry" if not more so than their oppo- nents. Examine the record. After the shambles of the October elec- tion Mr. Trudeau found his party had strong support only in the French speaking province of Quebec. The Conservatives had captured the support of the majority of the voters in nins of the 10 provinces. The Con- servatives gained more seats and elected more new members than all the other parties com- bined. Louis St. Laurent, when he v.-as prime minister, and suf- fered through a similar agoniz- ing defeat at I e hands of John Diefenbaksr, took what he de- scribed at the time as the "hon- orable course of action." He said the Liberal government's policies had been over- whelmingly rejected by the electorate and that he had no alternative but to step down and turn over the office of prime minister to Mr. Diefen- baker. There were powerful voices within the Liberal party that tried to persuade him to hang on to power, but he re- fused. Mr. Trudeau and his cabinet colleagues when they recovered from the shock of defeat last fall, realized that their policies lied been rejected by the voters, Mr. Trudeau decided to hang on to power and to alter policies, adopting several of those put forward by the Conservatives. It is understandable that Mr. Stanfield in a recent public ad- dress suggested that if the label "power hungry" was to be attached to any party it should be affixed to the Liber- als. In order to stay in office the Liberals have learn-d to live the New Democratic Party. David Lewis and his NDP group hold the balance of power and are enjoying the ex- perience even though it has meant that they have been re- soonsible for keeping Mr. Trudeau in office. The Liberals have bent, shifted, twisted and when necessary shelves policies in order to hang on to office. Nevertheless it is the Tories that have been branded as "power hungry" and the younger MP's in the Con- servative caucus take alarm when It is suggested they chal- lenge the government yet again. It was with that background that the special weekend caucus met here recently to study short-range and long-range strategy for the official opposi- tion party. There had been some veteran members of parliament among the Tory front benches who urged that the Conservatives get "bloody minded" inside and outside the house. But caution prevailed. It was agreed by those at the caucus that the party was now in a transformation stage in the house of commons. It had chall- enged the minority govern- ment's right to exist. It had in- troduced several warct-of-con- fidenee motions. All had been defeated. CURRIE'S FINE FOODS ICHTO OPEN 7 DAYS IfcAl O A WEEK A.M. TO P.M. Fresh "16 9th AV.. S. BETWEEN THE TWO Produce HOSPITALS The Tories had watched in frustration as the Liberals learned to accommodate them- salves to the NDP and survived vote after vote designed to de- feat them, the Liberal party position on its proposed corpo- rate income tax cuts appeared to be the last major hurdle for the government. Finance Minis- ter John Turner devised a unique formula which has been described as "conditional sur- render" to Mr. Stanfield's in- sistence that there be a one- year limitation on the corporate tax reduction. Mr. Turner agrees to have the tax measure reviewed in parliament after April, 1, 1974. If 60 members stand up and de- mand that it be debated in the house it will be up to parlia- ment to vote eventually either in favour of continuing the cor- porate tax cuts of terminating them. With that compromise the danger of the government facing defeat on the corporate tax measure faded. Now the Tories are looking to the future. At the special caucus it was agreed they would develop other new pol- icies even though they run the danger of those policies being expropriated by the Liberals. The Conservatives are con- fident that in the long run the ad hoc method of operating the administration followed by the Director dies in nursing home NEW YORK (AP) Joseph Mann, who directed the People's Symphony Concerts here for 59 years, died in a nursing home after a long illness. He was 79. The People's Symphony Con- certs, an organization founded by conductor Franz Arens in 1900, have offered up to 20 con- certs a season with major soloists, at low prices at the Washington Irving high school in New York since 1914. Mann introduced the Student Dance Recitals in 1925, which also presented major dancers. Among them were Martha Gra- ham and Isadora Duncan. Liberal minority government, will eventually land the Grits in hot water. They predict eco- nomic problems will swamp the government and develop such strong antagonism among the electorate that the next time there is a general election the Trudeau administration will be swept out of office. Inflation is becoming so serious 'the Conservatives be- lieve it could eventually destroy the government. A Tory govern- ment would introduce a price and wage freeze and in that freeze-period develop monetary and fiscal policies to cope with inflationary pressures, spokes- men pointed out after the week- end caucus. It concentrated on the need for long-range eco- nomic policies, and acceoted the desirability for the govern- ment to relate prices increases to productivity. Housing and energy policies were discussed. It was agreed the government should play a more active role in the econ- omy. It would range from the formation of five or 10-year plans of national industrial ob- jectives to tire development of policies designed to persuada foreign companies that import Canadian energy and other raw resources to transfer their oper- ations to this country. Mr. Stanfield made it clear that the Conservative party, so long as he is leader will never vote against principle for the sake of expediency, either to defeat the government or to keep it in office.
