Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thimday, March 22, 1973 THE LETHBRIB6E HIKAID g Use every opportunity to jab gov't Alberta Tory MPs voice heard in House of Commons OTTAWA Alberta's 10 Pro- ressivc Conservative MPs ave made it plain to Prime linister Pierre Elliolt Trudcau's minorily Liberal gov- rnment Ibat they did not come own to Ottawa to retire. At almost every opportunity possible, the Rocky Mountain ner ibers are on their feet prob- ing, tabbing and jabbing at the edcrp govern- nent which did not manage to elect a single MP from Alberta. EM on Woolliams (PC Calgary North) has been busy attacking Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford over Ottawa's housing as the Con- servative would more likaly put it, lack of housing policies. Mr. Woolliams switched over from being opposition Justice critic and, with some close as- sistance from former Liberal cabinet minister and now PC MP Paul Keilyor, has leapt into his new job with a relish. He wants more federal money pushed into housing, wide pow- ers created to help provide low cost serviced land for housing, and a whole range of 20lh cen- tury policies designed to enable every Canadian to own a "with at least a bit of land- scaping." Mr. Woolliams has also joined Calgary South MP Peter Bawden in tackling the Liberal government over icies. Ironically, the official Conservative energy critic is Saskatchewan MP Alvin Ham- ilton, a former cabinet minister in the John Diefenbaker govern- ment, bul lliis has not slopped either Mr. Bawden or Mr. liams battling Ottawa on Al- berta's behalf. Apart from energy, Mr. Baw- den, probably the House ol Commons' most knowled gable expert on energy matters, is gaining quite a reputation as a defender cf the taxpayer. The oilman has been up in the Commons at every turn ques- tioning Revenue Minister Bob- crt Stanbury on the new and complicated tax nine-page challenge, as Con- servative House leader and Al- berta MP Ged Baldwin calls trying to get Ottawa to give taxpayers a break. The Calgary South MP, who has been getting a lot of public- ity in Eastern Canada for his tax-battling stand, appears sur- prised at the following and sup- port he has been cluding ivme considerable fame. Don Mazankowski, MP for Vcgreville, and Jack Homer, the veteran MP for Crowfoot constituency, surprised just about everyone in Ottawa last week when they wheeler-dealcd Mr. Homer into the chairman- ship of the standing parlia- mentary committee on trans- port and communications, Mr. Mazankowski, an agrcs- sive young businessman and PC critic on transport, apparently convinced two New Democratic Party members to back Mr. Homer, a vigorous free en- terpriser who socialist MPs generally have little love for. The Crowfoot MP, an oppo- nent of Mlingualism, now comes face to face with one of bfli- ngualisms greatest champions, Transport Minister Jean March- pud. As Mr. Homer battles for better deals for the West, there will undoubtedly be fireworks in this area. American weapons superior' Gobs of gab Cmdr. Elizabeth M.

PARIS (AP) Defence Min- ister Gen. Vo Nguyen Giap of North Vietnam says in an inter- view published here today that many North Vietnamese be- came downhearted during the war because of the insur- mountable superiority of Am- erican weaponry.

Eating out price rise to continue TORONTO (CP) The Cana- dian Restaurant Association warned today that the price of eating out will continue to rise at a rate "at least comparable to the rate for food at the retail level." Jack Hemmings, the associ- ation's executive vice-president, said in a news release that the 1.6-per-cent increase in restau- rant; meal prices reported by Statistics Canada for the first two months of this year "re- flects the pressure of higher costs in almost all areas of res- aurant operation." Air. Hemmings said that Sta sties Canada figures show that meat, fish and poultry prices ave gone up 17 per cent since "ebruary, 1972." "That means that right hrough the restaurant industry, rom the most popular low- jriced family take-out estab- ishment to the exclusive haute cuisine restaurant, a significanl additional expense has been im- >osed and it must be passed on o the customer." you and nature CHEMAGRO LIMITED 77 City Centre Drive Mississaugua, Ontario Controversial Film grosses million NEW YORK CAP) A here grossed SI.2 mil ion in nine months from the sex film Deep Throat, an ac countant for the district attor noy's office testified.
