Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 UTHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, May 5, 1973 N exl election campaign Liberals give up on Alberta By PAUL JACKSON OTTAWA Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Tnideau's federal Liberals have more or less writ- ten off Alberta for the next election. True, the federal Liberals nill make some token attempt to gain seats in the Rocky Moun- tain province, and a few tal- ented candidates will launch their own individual campaigns to break through the total hold the Progressive Conservatives have hi Alberta, but realisti- cally if the Liberals managed to pick up even one seat it would be an occasion for great joy for them. "Quite commented an executive assistant to one Liberal cabinet minister in Ot- if I was running the fed- j eral campaign I wouldn't scene! one cent in Alberta. I wouldn't j spend much in Saskatchewan either." In Saskatchewan, ot course. the Liberals v.on only one seat last Oct. 30th.. that of Justice Minister Otto Lang in Sr.ska- toon-Humboldt. But at least that one seat more than they in Alberta. Ironically, during the last fed- eral campaign in Alberta, the Liberals ran at least a couple of candidates who. by any objec- tive assessment, would have had the chance of doing a bet- ter job in Ottawa than the Con- servatives MPs who represent those ridings today. Unfortunately, as Piogie-.uve Conservath e House leader Ged Baldwin once noted. Liberal candidates in Alberta to carry the burden of Mr. Trudeau's highly unpopular pol- icies around their necks which mean that no matter ho'v good the individual candidates are personally Albertans tend to vore on a party basis. Also, Albenan voters fear, as Crowfoot constituency MP Jack Homer pointed out recently in the Commons, that Liberal from Alberta will simply follow the party line when they get to Ottawa rather than represent the views and stands of the people who voted for them back home. Mr. Homer, who in the Trudeauraama year of I9a3 ac- tually increased lus majority over his Liberal opponent by 20 per cent, claims this is tiie rea- son former Liberal cabinet min- isters Pat Mahoncy, defeated by Conservative Peier Bawden in Calgary South, and Bud Ol- son, defeated by cattleman Bert in Medicine Hat, lost their seats "A'bertans don't like people who betray l.hfm.'' Mr. Homer, told ths Commons. Although some Alberta MPs in Ottawa claim Alberta Pre-' mier Peter Lcugheed had little' influence on the federal e'ec'uon i outcome, quite a number feel i that has long as -Mr. Longhead's poularity maintains its current level and ai long as he throws his support behind the federal Progrf-sive the Liberals and the New Demo- crats will be locked out ot Al- berta for a long time to come. Some Liberals would like to see Mr. Lougheed out of the premiers' seat. The trouble with 1 tliis is that the next logical step j for J.Ir Lougheed is to bid for the federal Conservative lead- ership Ii be did. and wen it. i the federal liberals would find it bard to come up with a thy opponent. Mr. name spell? magic for the fed- eral PCs who. with Robert Stanfield as current leader, jusi can't seem to make the big i breakthrough nationally In a way. both Mr Trudeau 'and Mr Stanfield will be was- 1 ting their time if tl.ej campaign in Alberta next election finis It's douutful if Mi' Stanfield j had any real influence himself on the outcome of the Alberta results, and wi'ile Mr. Trudeau might be said to have in- I financed the results persnna'ly it certainly wasn't a positive in- flut> es It's also ironic that it v.a-> in 1 Edmonton that Mr Truaeau made what might have been considered to be his certainly most apt for speech of the campaign. Based on physical fitness, the prime minister told Canadians they should shape up and stop going to seed. The air at the meeting i was electric. Even in Ottawa the standard i of Liberal officials in Alberta is j recognized. Blair Williams, for instance, who ran the Alberta campaign last Oct. 30th, is now national director for the Liber- als at federal headquarters here in the capital. True, the PCs picket! up all 19 Alberta seats, but at least the party realized tiiat Mr. Williams put on the best campaign possible under the circumstances One of the reasons Mr. Trudeau can't get an> seats m Alberta is that he fails to in- clude the feelings and reasoning o! the province's residents in his pclicy-mpkin? decisions. Mr. Tnneau and his cabiret just don't understand Alberta.

MEDIA CENSORED The difference between this year and 1972 was not acciden- tal. In a country where every wcrd disseminated by tho media is censored before it readies the public, the holidav coverage o'niously resulted from a top-level decision to en- hance and solidify the party chief's image as the Kremlin's j most important occupant. The pro-Brezhnev prass cam- paign hss been building up, since the party congress in j 1971, when Brezhnev began' reorganizing the poiitburo. i But the flowering of the cam- j paign does not necessarily mean that all is harmony at the top leveis of the Soviet lead- eichip. There have been, in fact, indications of tugging and pulling between the civilian pol- iticians who favor the new trend cf bivad business contacts with the United States and the hard-nose conservative military and party elements who are dis- trusfful and suspicious of that trend. Brezhnev has had to lead a power struggle inside the Krem- lin in the last two years to coa- solidote his supporters and weaken his opponents. There an appearance of notable success last with the an- nouncement cf a poiitburo change that dumped men end added three others to that top ruling body.
