Dr. Thomas, executive assis tant to Robert Stanbury, federa minister in charge of citizen ship, told the One Prairie Prov- ince Enquiry that to effect union there must be a belief tha that change is necessary ant that the specific change will be better. "To sow such an idea takes leadership a western Rene Levesque, courage and he said. Mr. Levesque led his separa- tist Parti Quebecois in gaining 24 per cent of the popular vote in the Quebec provincial elec- Lion earlier this month. Dr. Thomas said the second slep is the formation of groups to develop the skills and tech- niques required to atlain such a gaol. He said while "impressed" with the idea of union, "I do not believe it can be imposed" on the people of the Prairies. "What I have not yet discern- ed is a posilive reason, one that can ignite the popular engines of political change." Speaking on education, learn- ing and state building, Dr. Thomas said in order to achieve what the conference proposes, people must learn and "teachers must be pur- suaded of the values of the cause." He said loyalty now is Lhe main charcteristic of emerging movements for self-determina- tion. "Radio by intensifying a sense of identity based upon a spoken lanugage was (he chief spark of regeneration for French-Can- ada cenlred on Quebec." Dr. Thomas said broadcasting remains for Canada, "as for the entire world, Hie chief stormy petrel of the flowering of sepai atist movements."

Perhaps the shifting of blocs associated with national politics may be s factor in producing major alterations in the Prairie psyche that provides the grounds for genuine unification in some form or another, he said. "Tlie granite conservatism of Manitoba now just shifting a jttle lo moderate liberalism, tlie radical populism of Saskat- chewan with its real commit- ment lo tlie grass roots now struggling with industrialization, -he homely conservatism of Al- berta now transformed by great vealth inlo a conservative lib- eralism. are important con- siderations. "Changes have occurred that may in fact have created great- er commonality. although I am not yet convinced that it is the basis for the necessary' con- vulsion of union, or that what might be gained were this forc- ed for whalcver reason, might be much greater than that which was he said. However, the process of mov- ing toward union "would pro- duce a Prairie flowering in every area of human endeavor." WESTMINSTER DRUGS VVesfminsler Shopping 7 Centre I3IHSI.N.
