Tlw Conservatives, he said, have resorted to widespread at- tacks on French-speaking min- isters and to criticism of ethnic issues such as replacement of the initials RCMP with Ihe word police on the force's cars and buildings. While "tearing at the heart and soul of this country, the Conservative Party is tear- ing itself apart as well."

"Our voice bas to become ouder, we have to become nore united and get more uni- ied and larger groups into 'arliament." Mike Forreslal of Dart- loulh Halifax East said it vas just as frustrating for reas receiving a large portion f the federal government's economic aid. "We went through a period in 'anada when we didn't imder- itand each other and didn't know we didn't understand. 'Now we don't understand ind know we don't understand.
