Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Juno 13, 1970 Success! EDMONTON (CP) A suc- cessful bookseller and rising publisher, Edmonton's Mel llurtig lias decided to try add- ir.R "politician" to his list of joiis. Mr. Hurlig intends to run in the next federal election and will seek the Liberal nomina- tion this fall in the Edmonton West riding, now held by Pro- gressive Conservative Marcel Lambert. "I became actively involved in politics in 1967 because all my friends from Montreal and Quebec were telling me this eller. To Enter Politics HE BOUGHT A CHURCH ON HIS DAY OFF-John J. Bell, 33-year-old Philadelphia father of four, and his wife. Rose, look over agreement to purchase, for the church in the background. Bell, who attended an auction with on eye to buy a row home as an investment, wound up buying the church property which formerly had been used as a recreation centre. Bell said he was as disturbed as others when the property went on the auction block. OTTAWA (CP) Politics is strewn with the wrecks of fi- nance ministers who had inad- vertently let slip pieces of infor- mation which allowed the hear- ers to make stack market coups. Finance Minister Edgar Ben- son is trying to be as careful as any of his predecessors in keep- ing mum on any tip which could provide windfalls for specula- tors on the money markets. One unfortunate result for him is that he is being charged with misleading the Commons. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield has accused Mr. Ben- Eon of a credibility gap. UNHAPPY LOT Here are some examples of why a finance minister's lot is not a happy one: On Sunday, May 31, Mr. Ben- son announced unpegging cf the Canadian dollar. The next day in the Commons j Paul Yewcimk, Conservative MP for Athabasca, noted that Mr. Benson had said the pre- vious Wednesday that the gov-, ernment was not considering a i I floating exchange rate. Mr. Benson replied that on that Wednesday the government was not considering a change. He added that it was irrespon- sible of opposition MPs to ex- pect answers to questions on which speculators could make millions of dollars. When Mr. Slanfield returned to the same point June 2, the fi- nance minister said of the gov- ernment's dollar decision. "I said (the previous Wednes- day) that the government was not considering it; I did not say that I was not considering it. The government considers tilings when they are presented to the cabinet." On June 3, Louis Comeau Conservative MP for Soutl Western Nova, again accuse! }.fr. Benson cf misleading the Commons for allegedly indicat ing in May that more would not be imposed on certain imported textiles. A surtax on imported woven shirts was announced June 2 bj Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin Speaker Lucien Lainoureiu ruled that apparently conflicting statements by two this case Mr. Benson and Mr not questions privilege which would permi accusations of misleading tht Commons. On June 8, the Conservative and NDP House leaders, Gerald Baldwin and Stanley Knowles accused Mr. Braison and Prime Minister Trudeau of not giving frank and honest answers to questions. country was going to fall said (.lie 37-ycar-okl Edmonton native. "1 didn't believe it then, and I don't believe it now. But you have to work for what you do believe and Pin prepared lo get in and work." He said in an interview that he believes the Liberals have a good chance for the seat. "Mcrccl (who lias held the seat since 1957) may not run again, and we've certainly been gaining a lot cf support in the area." lie said lie has always been interested in politics, but not to Hie point of joining a party ui-ti! "We formed a group to sup- port Mr. Trudeau, then justice minister, for parly When got out cf high school he went into the fur business with his father. In 1950, lie and his wife, Ei- leen, opened a bookstore. "We started with a in- vestment, ar.d we were lucky. The 1956 paperback revolu- tion, fortunately for us, con- tributed." Mr. Hurlig isw has three bookstores, all in the city, and Ihc book sales make (hem the fourlh largest retail book out- let in Canada. He's a nationalist. Talk about western separatism brings an angry look to his dark eyes. "There's a considerable dif- ference between western alienation and western sepa- he said in an inter- view. "Alienation is a natural outgrowth cf the problems the agriculture industry is having in Western Canada. "But talk of separatism is incredibly irresponsible. Much of it is being encouraged by the corporations. You have to remember I hat the weaker (ho central government is, the easier It is for big business and multi-national corpora- tions lo act in their own best interests." He shares his office with Susan Kent, chief editor for his publishing concern. There is barely rccm to squeeze in a chair for a visitor.
