Hugh John Flemming, former Conservative premier of New Brunswick, reiterated a Iong- standing claim by the Maritime provinces to special considera- tion because Ihey did not get northern territories added to their areas of jurisdiction after Confederation. Mr. Maxchand, a Liberal, crit- icized Premier Bennett for his a tt acks on equalization pay- ments, saying (he criticism was distressing and wrong, contrib- uted to distrust and! misunder- standing and was not in the best interests of national unity, Mr. Bennett has attacked equalization payments, partly on the ground that some prov- inces, notably Quebec t do not tax their resource industries in the same manner us B.C.
