RNEL Simpsons-Sears Ltd. or money refunded By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau PETERBOROUGH Manitoba's former premier Duff Roblin is finding it rough going in his uphill fight in Peterborough to unseat popular, articulate Hugh Faulkner, the Liberal candidate who is secre- tary of state in the Trudeau cabinet. Mr. Roblin not only has to run against his vigorous and well known opponent but he finds he is also running against the only local newspaper, the Peterborough Thomson newspaper. The paper has taken a "scunner" against Roblin whom it regards as a Manitoba transplant via Montreal. Sight unseen it launched an editorial campaign and headed one editorial about Roblin: "Who needs That was before he had arrived, he said. The former Manitoba premier is also finding that his efforts to attract industry, to Manitoba when he was head of the Tory provincial government, are coming home to haunt him in his current campaign. Specifically his involvement with the Churchill Forest Industries project as premier, has been raised in stories in The Examiner. The newspaper had a front page story June 10 regarding the northern pulp and paper complex launched under the Roblin government and placed into receivership by the New Democratic Party, in 1971. Premier Ed Schreyer of the NDP government ordered a public inquiry in 1971. It continued for two years and is expected to re- port soon. The Examiner's headline on that story was a body Ex-Manitoba premier in trouble blow to Duff Roblin. It read: "Manitoba is not quite finished with our Duff What has Mr. Roblin incensed is that while it recited all the facts about the CFI complex and that project's problems The Examiner did not set out any of the achievements of the Roblin regime such as the Winnipeg Floodway floodway which was so helpful this spring. All he asks is fair treatment in the one newspaper in the single newspaper city. Bill Neville, one of Mr. Roblin's local Conservative campaign organizers, is a master of understatement. He said: "The Examiner has not been very helpful." But as he warmed to the subject he showed his indignation: "In fact it has been downright hostile to Duff ever since he an- nounced he would seek election in Peterborough. The newspaper almost. seems neurotic on the subject. It has indulged in innuendoes which are very unfair. "It has questioned Mr. Roblin's personal integrity something that has never happened to him before in all his years in political life. It is a difficult thing to deal with when the arti- cles are mostly factual but the headlines leave innuendoes." explained Mr. Neville. Mr. Roblin by nature is a calm man. But he is puzzled and somewhat bewildered at this bitter attack on him. He says. "I find The Examiner dif- ficult to understand." His campaign manager Alexander Fleming has labelled the newspaper's article a "smear job" and The newspaper has been so strong in its campaign against Mr. Roblin that there is some concern among the Grits in the constituency that it might stir up a sympathy vote for the likeable Manitoban Tory who has adopted Peterborough as his new home. Mr. Faulkner is avoiding the issue like the plague. Mr. Roblin's supporters are spurred on to do their best for their man. They laughingly reject the label "outsider" as applied to Mr. Roblin, they point out that Hugh Faulkner too was an "outsider" before he decided to seek a seat in the commons. To answer the claim that he is an outsider Mr. Roblin has opened negotiations to buy a house in his adopted city. At 57 years of age Mr. Roblin resigned from the presidency of Cana- dian Pacific Invest- ments Ltd. to return to the political arena. In 1972 this corres- pondent who "cover- ed" Mr. Roblin's DUFF ROBLIN climb up the political ladder to the office of premier in Mani- toba, called on him in his handsome corporate office in Montreal. There were. rumors then that Mr. Roblin was ready to go back to politics. He scoffed at the suggestion and said he was happy in Montreal. "You fellow's are always trying to get me back into politics." he said with a smile. But the appeal of big business and the excitement of living in Canada's French Canadian metropolis must have worn off. When parliament was dissolved this spring the rumours that were afloat earlier in the year that Roblin was in the running came true. He finds political life more comfortable than the life of a top executive in a huge corporation. He considered several constituencies. The Conservative association of Peterborough heard he was seriously considering running in Oxford constituency in Ontario. They urged him to consider Peterborough. ones Sears own 12" oscillating fan cools it fast! 8-34R78024. Fast working fan cools you in no time!
